Differences and precautions between timeslot allocation modes of the ClientLP port of a TOM board on OSN 6800

TOM boards support automatic and manual timeslot allocation modes. The timeslot allocation mode can be modified on the WDM timeslot configuration page and the default mode is automatic allocation.
1. In automatic allocation mode, the timeslots are automatically allocated based on the channel service type settings of the internal logical port ClientLP on a TOM board. Timeslot channels are preferentially allocated to the port for which service types are configured and the timeslot channels are sorted by size in ascending order. For non-cascading tributary TOM boards, 16 timeslots are configured for the 4 ClientLP ports. For example, if GE services are first configured for the ClientLP1-1 port and STM-4 services are configured for the ClientLP1-2 port, timeslot channels 1�? are automatically allocated to the ClientLP1-1 port on the WDM timeslot configuration page and timeslot channels 5�? are automatically allocated to the ClientLP1-2 port. Vice versa, if STM-4 services are first configured for the ClientLP1-2 port and GE services are then configured for the ClientLP1-1 port, timeslot channels 1�? are allocated to the ClientLP1-2 port and timeslot channels 5-11 are allocated to the ClientLP1-1 port. The IDs of the receive and transmit timeslots must be consistent.
2. In automatic allocation mode, pay attention to the mapping between timeslots at the service adding and dropping ends. The service type setting sequence may cause incorrect connection between timeslots at both ends, causing a service provisioning failure.|
3. In manual allocation mode, the IDs of the receive and transmit timeslots on the ClientLP port are manually set. The timeslot quantity and service types must be consistent. For example, STM-16 services correspond to 16 timeslots, GE services to 7 timeslots, and STM-4 services to 4 timeslots. For the mapping between timeslots and other types of services, see the attachment. The receive and transmit timeslots can be different, but those at the service adding and dropping ends must be consistent.
4. For the ClientLP port for which no service type is configured, the port will not be displayed in the timeslot configuration information. If no service type is set for any channel of a ClientLP port, the port also cannot be selected during ODU1 cross-connection configuration.
