The Cisco® ONS 15454 Multiservice Transport Platform (MSTP) supports a 10-Gbps Full-Band Tunable Multirate Transponder Card, which simplifies the integration and transport of 10 Gigabit Ethernet, 10 Gigabit Fibre Channel, and OC-192/STM-64 interfaces and services into enterprises or service provider optical networks (Figure 1).

Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP Release 9.1 extends the capabilities of this card with an enhanced-performance optical trunk module, which implements an Electronic Dispersion Compensation (EDC) mechanism based on the Maximum Likelihood Sequence Estimation (MLSE) algorithm to improve chromatic dispersion (CD) and polarization-mode dispersion (PMD) robustness.

Background

Optical transport networks must support numerous service demands, from low-rate DS-1/T1, DS-3/E3, 10/100BASE-T, and OC-3/STM-1 to higher-rate OC-12/STM-4, Gigabit Ethernet, OC-48/STM-16, OC-192/STM-64, and 10 Gigabit Ethernet services. In the recent past, SONET add-drop multiplexers (ADMs) provided the services platform to aggregate and transport services up to OC-48/STM-16, whereas dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) platforms were designed for optical signals from OC-3/STM-1 to OC-192/STM-64, including Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet. Unfortunately, deploying multiple platforms (including DWDM and SONET ADMs) to support multiple services is not cost-effective for many service provider and enterprise networks. The Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP, with transponder, muxponder, and Xponder cards, provides a more cost-effective networking solution to enable the delivery of all services, from lower-speed DS-1/E1 to high-density 2.5 Gbps and high-bandwidth OC-192/STM-64.

Product Overview

The 10-Gbps Full-Band Tunable Multirate Transponder Card can transport 10 Gigabit Ethernet WAN physical layer (PHY) and LAN PHY, 10-Gbps Fibre Channel (10G FICON), SONET OC-192, and SDH STM-64 services over a 50-GHz spaced, 50-GHz stabilized, ITU-compliant wavelength. The transponder card is a plug-in module to the Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP, enabling a cost-effective architecture for delivering high-rate 10-Gbps services as well as low-rate services down to 1.5 Mbps. The transponder card architecture contains a single client interface that is mapped to a single line interface, without accessing the Cisco ONS 15454 shelf cross-connect fabric.

The client interface supports 10 Gigabit Ethernet LAN PHY, 10 Gigabit Ethernet WAN PHY, 10 Gigabit Fibre Channel, SONET OC-192, and SDH STM-64 signals. The interface is based on 10 Gigabit Small Form-Factor Pluggable (XFP) Multisource Agreement (MSA). Different XFP interfaces are available:

A 10GE BASE-short-wave/short-reach, 850-nanometer (nm), multimode (MM) optical interface using LC connectors supporting fiber distance of up to 300 meters (m) (with or without the Y-protection option)

A short-reach/intra-office, 1310-nm, single-mode (SM) optical interface using LC connectors supporting fiber distances of up to 2 kilometers (km) (with or without the Y-protection option)

An intermediate-reach/short-haul, 1550-nm, SM optical interface using LC connectors supporting fiber distances of up to 20 km (with or without the Y‑protection option)

A long-reach/long-haul, 1550-nm, SM optical interface using LC connectors supporting fiber distances of up to 80 km (with or without the Y‑protection option)

The line interface provides one 10-Gbps, long-reach, ITU-compliant, 50-GHz-spaced optical interface using LC connectors supporting OTU-2 G.709 digital wrapper, OC-192, STM-64, 10 Gigabit Fibre Channel, 10 Gigabit Ethernet LAN PHY, or 10 Gigabit Ethernet WAN PHY interfaces.

The DWDM trunk interface is fully tunable across 82 adjacent 50-GHz wavelengths, enabling support forC-Band DWDM networks via a single card type. The MLSE-based Electronic Dispersion Compensation extends DWDM network performances, providing support to the following applications:

High PMD fiber applications: MLSE technology can monitor and correct errors due to time variant effects

Low-latency data center applications: SAN protocols, such as Server Time Protocol (STP), are extremely sensitive to additional latency introduced by CD optical fiber.

Enterprise point-to-point applications: Installation costs for the dispersion compensation unit (DCU) and fiber can be avoided. This is particularly important in low-end markets, where DCU can comprise up to 10 percent of simple point-to-point systems cost.

Ultra-long-haul (ULH) applications: Improvement in CD and PMD performance can be translated into better ULH performance. Additional OSNR margin can be allocated to compensate for non-linear effects (NLE) impairment, allowing for better system performance.

The 10-Gbps Full-Band Tunable Multirate Transponder Card incorporates both a client and DWDM line interface on the same card. The 10-Gbps full-band tunable transponder cards are deployable in the 12 multiservice interface card slots of the Cisco ONS 15454 platform, in systems with or without cross-connect cards. The addition of a cross-connect card enables the platform to support hybrid applications, containing transparent 10‑Gbps services as well as aggregation of other services supported by the Cisco ONS 15454 platform. The only required common card is the appropriate timing, communications, and control card (TCC).

The 10-Gbps Full-Band Tunable Multirate Transponder Card provides many carrier-class features and advanced capabilities necessary to deliver 10-Gbps services, including the protocol transparency, wavelength tunability, flexible protection mechanisms, flow-through timing, management, and performance monitoring capabilities outlined below.

Enhanced FEC Capability

An important feature of the transponder card is the availability to configure the Forward Error Correction (FEC) in two modes: FEC and Enhanced FEC (E-FEC). The output bit rate will depend on the bit rate of the incoming signal but the digital wrapper will be always as defined in G.709.

10.70923 Gbps in case of OC-192/STM-64/10 Gigabit Ethernet WAN

11.095 Gbps in case of 10 Gigabit Ethernet LAN PHY (over-clocking mode)

11.3168 Gbps in case of 10 Gigabit Fibre Channel (over-clocking mode)

Error coding performance can be provisioned:

FEC: standard G.975 Reed-Salomon algorithm

E-FEC: standard G.975.1 two orthogonally concatenated BCH super FEC codes. This FEC scheme contains three parameterizations of the same scheme of two orthogonally interleaved block codes (BCH). The constructed code is decoded iteratively, to achieve the expected performance.

Protocol Transparency

The transponder card provides transparent wavelength services on the Cisco ONS 15454 platform. For SONET- orSDH-based client payloads, when provisioned in transparent operating mode, the card will pass all of the SONET/SDH overhead bytes transparently. The card monitors important SONET/SDH overhead bytes, such as B1 (section BIP-8) and J0 (section trace), to allow fault isolation and performance monitoring capabilities. Termination of the line data communications channel (LDCC) is user-provisionable, to enable the platform processor to route the DCC information for intra-carrier networking or to allow the DCC information to be transported untouched, via the digital wrapper’s general communications channel (GCC), for inter-carrier networking. For 10 Gigabit Ethernet and OC‑192/STM-64 payloads, digital wrapper technology (G.709) is used to add a management wrapper to the service, allowing the transponder card to transparently forward the payload while enabling performance metrics to be derived to ensure circuit service quality.

The transponder card is transparent to the embedded payload and does not access the Cisco ONS 15454 platform’s cross-connect. It can carry any type of concatenated SONET/SDH payloads (STS-Nc or VC-4-Mc); non-concatenated payloads on an STS-1, VC-4, VC-3, VC-12, or VT1.5 basis; and 10 Gigabit Ethernet LAN or WAN PHY payloads.

Wavelength Tunability

The transponder card operates on the 50-GHz ITU grid and it is tunable across the full C-band, on 50-GHz channels. Tunability reduces the amount of inventory and spares required to cover all of the wavelengths. Tunability is software-provisionable.

Flexible Protection Mechanisms

The 10-Gbps Full-Band Tunable Multirate Transponder Card provides flexible protection capabilities for both client and DWDM line interfaces, enabling support for numerous network configurations required to deliver the various service-level agreements (SLAs) for customer applications (Table1).

Table 1. Protection Formats

Protection Type

Capabilities

Figure

Unprotected client and line

No client terminal interface, transponder card, or DWDM line protection. The client signal is transported over a single unprotected transponder card. This configuration is suitable for transporting client payloads over a DWDM network that is being protected via unidirectional path switched ring/subnetwork connection protection (UPSR/SNCP) or bidirectional line switched ring/multiplex section shared protection ring (BLSR/MS-SPR) protocols.

2

1+1 protected client

Enables protection for both the client terminal interfaces and the transponder cards. Two client terminal interfaces operating 1+1 automatic protection switching/multiplex section protection (APS/MSP) switching are passed through 2 transponder cards, with switching managed between client terminal equipment interfaces.

3

Y-cable client interface

Provides transponder equipment protection without client terminal equipment interface protection. A single client interface is split to 2 transponder cards using a Y-protection device.

Flow-Through Timing

The transponder card allows the timing to “flow through” from client to line optical interfaces. Receive timing from one interface (client or line) is used to time the other transmitter interface (line or client). This flow-through timing enables the transported signal to remain independent from the node timing.

Management

The Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP provides comprehensive management capabilities to support the operations, administration, monitoring, and provisioning (OAM&P) capabilities through the integrated Cisco Transport Controller craft interface with support from the Cisco Transport Manager element management system (EMS). The 10-Gbps Full-Band Tunable Multirate Transponder Card incorporates provisionable digital wrapper (G.709) functions, providing per-wavelength performance management capabilities, especially for services being transported transparently across the network. Without the digital wrapper functions, a carrier transporting a service transparently would be unable to identify network impairments that may degrade the transported signal and exceed SLA requirements. The digital wrapper’s GCC enables a separate communications channel on a per-wavelength basis, versus the section DCC/regenerator section DCC (SDCC/RSDCC) in SONET/SDH signals that is used by the platform when transparent signals are transported. This GCC enables the Cisco ONS 15454 to extend its advanced network auto-discovery capabilities to DWDM-based services. The integrated Cisco ONS 15454 Transport Controller craft manager and the Cisco Transport Manager EMS provide the user with OAM&P access for the system.

Configurable Far-End-Laser-Off Behavior

The 10-Gbps Full-Band Tunable Multirate Transponder Card offers the flexibility to provision the Far-End-Laser-Off behavior. You can use Cisco Transport Controller to configure how the remote client interface will behave following a fault condition. It is possible to configure the remote client to squelch or to send an alarm indication signal (AIS).

Performance Monitoring

The performance-monitoring capabilities of the 10-Gbps Full-Band Tunable Multirate Transponder Card provide support for both transparent and nontransparent signal transport. For SONET/SDH-terminated signals, standard performance-monitoring and threshold-crossing conditions and alarms are supported per Telcordia GR-474, GR-2918, ITU G.783, and ETS 300 417-1 standards. For 10 Gigabit Ethernet signals, standard performance parameters for transmit and receive signals are based on RFC 2819. Each digital wrapper channel will be monitored per ITU-T digital wrapper requirements (G.709). Optical parameters on the DWDM line interface are supported, including laser bias, transmit optical power, and receiver optical power. Calculation and accumulation of the performance monitoring data will be in 15-minute and 24-hour intervals.

The transponder card incorporates faceplate-mounted LEDs to provide a quick visual check of the operational status of the card. An orange circle is printed on the faceplate, indicating the shelf slots the card can be installed.

Application Description

The 10-Gbps Full-Band Tunable Multirate Transponder Card adds several new applications to an already flexible Cisco ONS 15454 platform. These include metro 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, STM-64 transport for cable-landing service extension, and OC-192/STM-64 transport for carrierservices.

10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity (Figure 5): With the addition of 10 Gigabit Ethernet on data terminals, the need for service providers to add a 10 Gigabit Ethernet transport service becomes critical to provide a complete metro service portfolio to their customer base. The 10‑Gbps transponder card helps enable service providers to cost-effectively integrate 10 Gigabit Ethernet into their service mix over a multiservice network, reducing the need to deploy an overlay DWDM platform, and reducing the cost to deploy the service.

Figure 5. 10 Gigabit Ethernet Connectivity

STM-64 transport for cable-landing service extension (Figure 6): A second application is the capability of a carrier’s service provider (Service Provider A) to transport STM-64 payloads from a transoceanic cable-landing site to another service provider’s international gateway site (Service Provider B).

Figure 6. STM-64 Transport for Cable Landing Service Extension

OC-192/STM-64 transport for carrier services (Figure 7): The OC-192/STM-64 transport for a carrier’s carrier services application is similar to the application outlined in Figure 6.

Figure 7. OC-192/STM-64 Transport for a Carrier’s Carrier Services

In each of these applications, the user can provide several service types, from DS-1/E1 to 10-Gbps services, using a single transport platform such as the Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP. This capability helps reduce system complexity, capital expenditures, and operational expenses related to technician training.
