The multiport Cisco® ONS 15454 Any Rate Enhanced Xponder Card (Figure 1) is a plug-in module for the Cisco ONS 15454 Multiservice Transport Platform (MSTP). The card provides a high degree of flexibility for the multiservice aggregation transport of a large variety of signals and interfaces into enterprises or metropolitan-area (metro) and regional service provider networks.

Figure 1. Cisco ONS 15454 Any Rate Enhanced XPonder Card

Metro transport networks must support numerous service demands: transmission of low-rate 10/100BASE-T and OC-3/STM-1 signals; higher-rate OC-12/STM-4, Gigabit Ethernet, and OC-48/STM-16 signals; video signals such as standard-definition Serial Data Input (SDI) and high-definition SDI (HD-SDI); optical-transport-unit-1 (OTU-1) services; and first-generation (1G), 2G, 4G, and 8-Gb Fibre Channel services. The flexibility to support multiple rates and aggregate them over a dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) interface using Optical Transport Network (OTN) technology brings huge savings in operating and management costs.

Enhanced FEC Capability

An important feature of the Cisco ONS 15454 Any Rate Enhanced Xponder Card is the ability to configure the FEC mode. SFP ports 1 to 8 have two modes of operation, NO FEC and FEC, whereas ports 9 and 10 can also be configured in E-FEC mode.

You can configure error-coding performance:

NO FEC: No Forward Error Correction

FEC: Standard G.975 Reed-Salomon algorithm

E-FEC: Standard G.975.1 I-7 with two orthogonally concatenated block (BCH) super FEC codes; this FEC scheme contains three parameterizations of the same scheme of two BCH codes, with the constructed code decoded iteratively to achieve the expected performance

E-FEC: Standard G.975.1 I-4 with two interleaved codes (RS and BCH) super FEC codes

Protocol Transparency

The Cisco ONS 15454 Any Rate Enhanced Xponder architecture allows you to aggregate multiple signals without terminating the overhead. Thus full signal transparency is maintained during multiplexing functions over higher bit rates.

ODU-0 Mapping

The card architecture allows you to map GbE signals and FC-1G signals onto the ODU-0 container. The selected mapping method is GFP-T (ITU-T G.709 Section 17.7.1.1 1000BASE-X transcoding) that guarantees fully transparent transmission of the signals. This supports transport of SyncE-based services across an OTN and DWDM network.

Protocol Autosensing

The card architecture also allows the clients to self-configure the rate-versus-input signals. The cards automatically set mapping and provisioning without any user provisioning step. The initial release supports autosensing functions among Gigabit Ethernet, OC-3/STM-1, OC-12/STM-4, and OC-48/STM-16.

Proactive FRR Regeneration Implementation

Fast Reroute (FRR) is a Layer 3 protection mechanism that allows for switching of the data path without reference to Layer 1 concerns. The switch in most cases happens with little or no loss of data and happens within 50 milliseconds. The switch is indirectly triggered by events that would bring the interface down, resulting in almost certain data loss during the time when defects are detected until a FRR switch is completed.

With IP over DWDM (IPoDWDM), the FEC circuitry resides on a router line card. Therefore, the router has visibility into the bit-error-rate (BER) statistics before the FEC mechanism corrects these errors, allowing the router to realize that the working path is degrading beyond a reasonable point (which is defined by a user-settable threshold). At this point, the router can start its protection logic and establish a protection path while traffic continues to flow on the degrading working path. Depending on the failure mode, the router may have tens or even hundreds of milliseconds to move away from the working path before the FEC mechanism fails.

The FEC mechanism detects failures before they actually happen and also corrects errors either introduced during transmission or due to a degrading signal. DWDM physical layer interface modules (PLIMs) trigger an FRR switch based on the number of FEC corrected bits. The number of FEC corrected bits would provide a good indication that the line is about to have a failure. FEC-based FRR therefore allows for triggering the switch before that failure happens with little or no loss of data. In fact, the FEC function can correct a high BER (up to 10E-3), providing an error-free signal to the line card connected to the PLIM. Triggering the FRR with a lower BER will cause a FRR before any packet is lost.

The prevailing video encoding is based on MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 standards, which use differential coding of the frame with reference to a full frame that is sent only relatively infrequently. When this frame (called the I-frame) is lost, a large number of users may experience a visible outage on their screens, lasting for up to several seconds. High-resolution encoding schemes, such as MPEG-4, are actually more susceptible to longer outages because I-frames are less common in the data stream. For this reason it is important to minimize the packet loss even below the SONET/SDH benchmark, ideally aiming for zero packet loss.

Cisco ONS 15454 Any Rate Enhanced Xponder Card supports Proactive Protection Regeneration, which notifies the routers of the incoming FEC errors. This feature involves modifying the G709 protection bytes in Overhead (Figure 7).

FRR Regen is supported on 10G Ports, only

Figure 7. Proactive FRR implementation

When there is a span between two routers, a Cisco ONS 15454 Any Rate Enhanced Xponder Card is used because the OTU-2 Regen is degrading, but the downstream router is not aware of it (so the router does not switch to an alternate path).

The card signals the downstream router about the degradation. This signal is called a pre-FEC error backward defect indicator (PF-BDI) (using the APS/PCC bytes of the G.709 ODU OH).

The router integrates the PF-FDI for three frames and then acts as if it has detected the BER threshold crossing.

Router B activates its Layer 3 switching.

Router B raises a PF Backward Defect Indication (PF-BDI) flag to ask router A to switch. This PF-BDI propagates through the Cisco ONS 15454 Any Rate Enhanced Xponder Card.

When router A gets this PF-BDI message, router A also activates its Layer 3 switching.

The Cisco ONS 15454 Any Rate Enhanced Xponder Card allows you to extend FRR when OTU-2 regeneration is required between the routers, sending PF-FDI when it sees a degrading link.

Flexible Protection Mechanisms

The Cisco ONS 15454 Any Rate Enhanced Xponder Card provides flexible protection capabilities for both client and DWDM line interfaces, supporting numerous network configurations to uphold the various service-level agreements (SLAs) the customer application requires.

Unprotected client and line: This configuration has 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 by a Layer 2 or Layer 3 protocol.

Y-cable client interface: This configuration provides transponder equipment protection without client terminal equipment interface protection. A single client interface is split into two transponder cards using a Y-protection device.

Fiber-switched protection: This configuration, valid at 10 Gbps only for the card, provides redundant DWDM trunk interface protection for a single unprotected client interface.

Management

The Cisco ONS 15454 platform provides comprehensive management capabilities to support operations, administration, maintenance, and provisioning (OAMP) capabilities through the integrated Cisco Transport Controller Craft Interface with support from the Cisco Transport Manager Element Management System (EMS). The Cisco ONS 15454 Any Rate Enhanced Xponder 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 generic communications channel (GCC) of the digital wrapper allows a separate communications channel on a per-wavelength basis. This GCC allows the Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP to extend its advanced network autodiscovery capabilities to DWDM-based services. The integrated Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP Transport Controller Craft Manager and the Cisco Transport Manager EMS give you OAMP access for the system.

Performance Monitoring

The performance-monitoring capabilities of the Cisco ONS 15454 Any Rate Enhanced Xponder Card support both transparent and nontransparent signal transport. Calculation and accumulation of the performance-monitoring data is in 15-minute and 24-hour intervals.

For SONET/SDH 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 (Tables 3 and 4).

Application Description

The Cisco ONS 15454 Any Rate Enhanced Xponder Card provides an unprecedented flexibility to aggregate and transport a large variety of services over 10-Gbps signals. This capability allows the card to provide a solution to multiple applications.

Data Center Interconnections

The card effectively addresses demands for high-density data and storage service aggregation. Whether they are using a dedicated enterprise infrastructure or a metro or regional service provider network, customers can efficiently and cost-effectively scale their business continuance applications and consolidate their backbone network infrastructures.

The tremendous growth of business applications is quickly heightening data-storage requirements and network expectations. Customers demand uninterrupted access to corporate systems and data. Enterprises must respond to this surge in demand by providing comprehensive, highly secure, interconnected SANs and geographically dispersed data-recovery solutions. The Cisco ONS 14545 Any Rate Enhanced Xponder Card provides the capability to efficiently aggregate mission-critical Gigabit Ethernet, ESCON, Fibre Channel (up to 8 Gigabit Ethernet Fibre Channel), and FICON services across the metro optical transport network, providing real-time synchronous replication of information between the primary and backup data centers.

Managed Service Network

DWDM transport networks are offering service providers a basic transport layer. The capability to optimize wavelength efficiency is a critical achievement for managed service networks to provide a significant return on investment for service providers. The superb flexibility of Cisco Any Rate cards to multiplex any mix of different services (Ethernet, SONET, SDH, OTN, SAN, or video) allows you to optimize the number of wavelengths used in the network, thereby significantly reducing capital expenditures (CapEx) for the transport infrastructure.

OTN Handoff

The OTN is becoming the predominant standard for interconnecting network interfaces of different DWDM network providers. It guarantees total transparency of the wrapped payload as well as a defined standard for the interfaces. Cisco Any Rate cards provide fully standards-based OTU-1 and OTU-2 interfaces, allowing service providers to hand off services to other service providers with full SLA support.

OTU-2 EFEC Regenerator and Translator

The market offers multiple EFEC algorithms, but the vast majority of deployments use G.795.1 I-4 and I-7 options. This situation creates interoperability problems between equipment because of the different coding mechanisms. Cisco Any Rate cards can regenerate OTN signals with different EFEC algorithms, allowing them to connect equipment that cannot be interconnected. An example of this application is regeneration of OTU-2 signals coming from the Cisco CRS-1 Carrier Routing System platform that need to be terminated over a Cisco 7600 Series Router or Cisco ASR 9000 Series Aggregation Services Router.

High-Definition Video Aggregation

Video signals are increasingly popular for service providers. The requirement is not only to deploy a Layer 2 or Layer 3 network dedicated to video applications but also to support natively such services over a DWDM system. Stringent latency requirements and the capability to transmit signals without compression are becoming requirements for DWDM networks. Cisco Any Rate cards natively support the capability to multiplex SD-SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G-SDI over an OTU-2 trunk interface, allowing you to maximize the wavelength bandwidth, maintain full transparency for uncompressed signals, and dramatically reduce latency.
