Performance Event Meaning

The VC3SES is a performance event indicating the VC3 far end severely error second.

Performance Event Attributes

Performance Event ID Performance Event Type


SDH performance event

Impact on the System

If bit errors occur in the services, you need to find out the causes and troubleshoot the problem in time. Otherwise, alarms will be generated and the signal transmission quality will be affected. If bit errors exceed the B3 bit error threshold-crossing threshold and degrade threshold, the B3_EXC and B3_SD alarms will be generated.

Possible Causes

The VC3SES performance event occurs when one of the following requirements is met: 1. Not less than 30% bit errors are detected in one second. 2. At least one severely disturbed period (SDP) occurs. The SDP indicates that the BER of all the consecutive blocks is not lower than 10-2 or the LOS, LOF and MS_AIS alarms occur in a period of at least four consecutive blocks or one millisecond (the longer one is selected), or the AU_AIS and AU_LOP alarms are detected on the path.

External causes:

  • The fiber performance is degraded, and the fiber has extremely high attenuation.

  • The fiber connector is dirty or incorrect.
  • The equipment is poorly grounded.
  • There is a strong interference source around the equipment.
  • The working temperature is extremely high or extremely low, and the opposite equipment cannot tolerate such temperature.

Equipment problems:

  • The signal attenuation at the receiving side of the line board is excessive, the transmitting circuit of the opposite end is faulty, or the receiving circuit of the local end is faulty.

  • The synchronization performance of the clock is poor.
  • The cross-connect unit and the line board poorly match.
  • The board becomes faulty, or the performance of the board is degraded.

Relevant Alarms

Alarm Name Correlation


B3 bit errors crossing the threshold

B3_SD_VC3 Signals degraded (B3)
R_LOS The signal on the receiver line side is lost.
R_LOF The out-of-frame fault occurs on the receiver line side.
MS_AIS Multiplex section alarm indication
AU_AIS AU alarm indication
AU_LOP AU pointer loss
