Product Overview

The Cisco ® ONS 15454 M6 Multiservice Transport Platform (MSTP) sets the industry benchmark for compact, simple, fast, and intelligent dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) solutions. Its small form, simplicity, unique set of integrated features, and low power consumption reduce capital expenditures (CapEx) and operating expenses (OpEx). The Cisco ONS 15454 M6 MSTP (Figure 1) is compatible with the existing portfolio of MSTP line cards, thereby offering a multitude of MSTP applications in a smaller footprint. From edge aggregation solutions with the integrated AC power module to metro core applications with reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexers (ROADMs) with an optical service channel (OSC), the flexible Cisco ONS 15454 M6 supports a broad range of solutions.

Key Features and Benefits

The Cisco ONS 15454 M6 chassis has 2 slots for redundant control cards and 6 slots for service cards (Figure 2). These 6 line-card slots provide increased power and cooling capability over the original Cisco ONS 15454 chassis, and a usable high-speed backplane for future applications. You can configure the Cisco ONS 15454 M6 with integrated and redundant DC or AC power inputs. You can use a single power module for low-power and low-cost configurations. The DC power module has connectors for both ANSI and ETSI style battery and battery return connections, making it universal. The AC power module has a single input and is universal in that it accepts a power input ranging from 110 to 240 VAC, 50 to 60 Hz.
The Electrical Connection Unit (ECU, Figure 3) is a narrow, front-facing termination panel for all your management, alarm, and multishelf connections. With all connections to the Cisco ONS 15454 M6 being front-facing, this platform is ideal for cabinet installations and ETSI front connection requirements, making this platform truly global. The ECU comes in two versions; the ECU2 version includes an RJ-45 connector for time-of-day (ToD) input and pulse-per-second (PPS) input.
Although the node can be configured with redundant control or processor cards, simplex mode or single control-card operation is permitted. The Cisco ONS 15454 M6 has a built-in memory module to backup the softwarepackage, IP address, and circuit database, making simplex mode more attractive in cost-sensitive applications. This built-in backup memory improves mean time to repair (MTTR) and increases operational simplicity. Also new to the Cisco ONS 15454 M6 is the ability to connect, through a USB port, up to twelveCisco ONS passive devices for inventory management. Some Cisco ONS 15216 passive devices, such as the single-module ROADM patch panel, have an erasable programmable ROM (EEPROM) in the device that the Cisco ONS 15454 M6 can read, so it appears in the Cisco Transport Controller inventory management pane.
You can mount the Cisco ONS 15454 M6 MSTP into 19-, 21-, or 23-inch racks or cabinets. Brackets come with the Shelf Assembly and can also be ordered as spares. Optional air deflectors can be used in 21" and 23" installations. With 19-inch brackets, the airflow is right to left. With 21-inch brackets, you can select the airflow as right to left; right front in, and left front out; left up out; or left back out. With 23-inch brackets, airflow is from right front in to left back out.
The Cisco ONS 15454 M6 MSTP has a single high-capacity fan-tray assembly where the three fans are individually monitored and controlled. If a single fan fails (unlikely), you receive a fan fail alarm and the other fans increase in speed to provide sufficient airflow to give you time to safely replace the fan tray.
Doors are optional and hence do not come with the Shelf Assembly. They can be ordered as spares.
Specifically designed for these new platforms are new control cards that consolidate the functions of the control card, OSC termination, multishelf switch, and increased alarms into just one card. All MSTP applications that were possible with the original 12-service-slot MSTP chassis are now supported in the more compact and feature-rich M6 chassis. The OSC now also supports Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet connections, in addition to OC-3/STM-1, giving you more bandwidth for use with the user data channel (UDC).

The Cisco ONS 15454 M6 MSTP platform provides capital and operational efficiency by addressing the increasing demand for bandwidth and multiple services at the edge of the network. It uses the existing Cisco Transport Controller management and integrates well with other optical transport platforms.With innovative technology, the Cisco ONS 15454 M6 MSTP pushes intelligence to the edge of the network, thus allowing the optimization of next-generation networks across multiple layers and removing costly optical-electrical-optical (OEO) devices for network segmentation or regeneration.
The Cisco ONS 15454 M6 MSTP carries on the existing features such as multilayer graphical network, node, and card visibility; A-to-Z network-based service provisioning; and graphical software wizards to simplify and speed user operations for such tasks as initial network turn-up; service provisioning; and network, node, and bandwidth upgrades. The Cisco ONS 15454 M6 MSTP takes advantage of the embedded software architecture and control plane to introduce a level of operational simplicity unheard of in DWDM networks.
In addition to the integrated software features, the Cisco ONS 15454 M6 MSTP is supported by an easy-to-use but powerful network design tool, the Cisco Transport Planner. This tool is a user-friendly, Java-based application (fully developed and tested by Cisco) for modeling and optimizing DWDM networks based on the user's network parameters.

Topology Flexibility

One recent core network trend is the consolidation of multiple Layer 2/3 networks into a single IP/Multiprotocol Label Switching (IP/MPLS) infrastructure. In spite of this Layer 2/3 convergence, however, the underlying transport layer (Layer 1) of many service provider core networks has continued to use SONET/SDH. Many service provider networks globally still use SONET/SDH, creating OpEx and CapEx concerns for service providers as well as the challenges of profitability and return on investment (ROI). Some network inefficiencies result from the way core transport networks are built out today to support the IP or service layer over the SONET/SDH layer, supported by an underlying DWDM infrastructure. The OEO conversions and the associated electrical processing directed by the layered network architecture result in an additional cost in terms of space, because many racks of shelves may be required in a service provider point of presence (POP), as well as additional power and cooling that is necessary because of the active electronics components that they contain.
You can configure the Cisco ONS 15454, ONS15454 M6, and ONS 15454 M2 MSTP chassis to support any edge, metro, regional, or core DWDM topology, allowing you to use a unified solution for the overall network, independently from the topology and reach. The ultimate topology flexibility is achieved through a set of fully reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexers (ROADMs). Multidegree ROADMs (2 through 8 degrees of freedom) allow wavelengths to remain in the optical domain while being passed from one ring or network segment to another, further eliminating the need for OEO conversions and using the ability of core routers to initiate DWDM-compatible wavelengths.
The Cisco ONS 15454 M6 MSTP with the single-module ROADM offers a tremendous decrease in footprint, power requirements, and patch-cable complexity over the first-generation ROADMs.
