Q & A
Q. What is the Cisco ® ONS 15310-MA SONET Multiservice Platform?
A. The Cisco ONS 15310-MA is a fully redundant, fully protected 6-rack-unit (6-RU) Multiservice Provisioning Platform (MSPP) optimized for metro access networks. It uses the same management interface - the Cisco Transport Controller - as the Cisco ONS 15454, ONS 15600, and ONS 15310-CL platforms, and is fully interoperable with these platforms. The Cisco ONS 15310-MA provides superior circuit scalability (DS-1, DS-3, EC-1, and Ethernet options at both Layer 1 and 2), and includes Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP)-based optics capable of OC-3, OC-12, OC-48, and CWDM/DWDM options, plus a wide variety of protection options for up to 99.999 percent reliability.

Q. What unique benefits does the Cisco ONS 15310-MA offer?
A. The Cisco ONS15310-MA bridges the gap between the Cisco ONS 15310-CL and the Cisco ONS 15454 platforms, providing a small-size aggregation and transport solution. It offers higher density, more features, and greater flexibility than the Cisco ONS 15310-CL, as well as fully redundant common equipment and facility protection for a carrier-class, 99.999 percent availability solution. While it has less capacity than the Cisco ONS 15454, it is designed with a smaller footprint and lower price. The Cisco ONS 15310-MA uses the same feature-rich and innovative software as the other optical products in its product family.
Q. What are the physical dimensions of the Cisco ONS 15310-MA?
A. The Cisco ONS 15310-MA is 6-RU (10.5 inches) tall, 10.67 inches wide, and 12.0 inches deep. It fits easily into a 19-inch rack, and two can be mounted side by side in a 23-inch rack.

Q. What is the minimum hardware configuration required for the ONS 15310-MA?
A. The minimum equipment required for the Cisco ONS 15310-MA consists of a chassis, fan tray, filter, one CTX card with SFP optics, one CTX filler card, four expansion-slot filler cards, and two backplane covers, if EIA cards are not installed.
Q. What are the power requirements of the Cisco ONS 15310-MA?
A. The Cisco ONS 15310-MA installation requires the use of ground cable, #6 AWG stranded copper conductors for grounding, and #14 AWG stranded copper conductors for power. Use of a 15-ampere (A) fuse is recommended. The system operates between -40.5 volts (V) and -56.7V DC. A typical configuration would draw about 300 watts (approximately 6.5A DC at -48V).
Q. Does the Cisco ONS 15310-MA support redundant power supply?
A. Yes, the Cisco ONS 15310-MA has the following power characteristics:

• Redundant terminal blocks are used for connecting power, and inputs are on the back of the sub-rack with "A" and "B" at opposing corners.

• Battery A and B are independent.

• Return A and B are independent.

• A feed and B feed are independently monitored.

• The Cisco ONS 15310-MA uses state-of-the-art, point-of-use power supplies for maximum system reliability.

Q. Are there AC power options for the Cisco ONS 15310-MA?
A. The Cisco ONS 15310-MA operates on -48V DC power, and there is no optional AC power input. If only AC power is available, the Cisco AC/DC power rectifier (part number CSCO-ACDC-SYS) can be used for an effective DC power solution. For more information on the Cisco AC/DC power rectifier, please visit: www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6063/index.html.
Q. Which protection options are supported on the Cisco ONS 15310-MA?
A. The Cisco ONS 15310-MA supports unidirectional-path switched ring (UPSR), linear 1+1, and path-protected mesh networking (PPMN) as well as unprotected optical transmission. It also supports (but does not require) redundant controller cards for "hitless" switching. TDM redundancy (1:1 protection on DS-1/DS-3/EC-1 cards) and RPR on Cisco ONS 15454 ML-Series cards are also optional.

Q. How is the Cisco ONS 15310-MA managed?
A. The Cisco ONS 15310-MA uses both Cisco Transport Controller and Cisco Transport Manager Version 7.0. Cisco Transport Controller is a simple Java-based GUI that works via IP. Because other Cisco ONS platforms use this same GUI, the convenience of full management, alarm monitoring, and A-Z provisioning are available from anywhere in the network. Other industry-standard management interfaces such as Transaction Layer 1 (TL1), Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), and Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) are also supported.
