The Cisco® Carrier Ethernet (CE) Card (Figure 1) for the Cisco ONS 15454 Multiservice Provisioning Platform (MSPP) helps enable the delivery of true carrier-class, private-line Ethernet services. Through its portfolio of Ethernet service cards, the Cisco ONS 15454 has helped enable service providers and enterprises to effectively and efficiently migrate their networks from offering/transporting only time-division-multiplexing (TDM) services to networks capable of multiservice delivery over a single, converged architecture and eliminating the need for multiple overlay infrastructures. The introduction of the CE-Series module, with generic framing procedure (GFP), virtual concatenation (VCAT), and link capacity adjustment scheme (LCAS) helps service providers and enterprises maximize bandwidth utilization and promote industrywide interoperability for Ethernet private line services.

Figure 1. Cisco ONS 15454 CE 8-Port 10/100Base-T Ethernet Card

The Cisco ONS 15454 MSPP is the optical industry’s first metro optical transport platform. The Cisco ONS 15454 combines supercharged SONET/SDH transport, integrated optical networking (ITU grid wavelengths and dense wavelength-division multiplexing [DWDM], for example), and unprecedented multiservice interfaces on demand (TDM, Ethernet/IP, and storage, for example) to deliver radical economic benefits. The Cisco ONS 15454 provides the functions of multiple network elements in a single platform. As a critical component of a complete, end-to-end advanced service architecture from Cisco Systems®, the Cisco ONS 15454 delivers a scalable optical transport mechanism and intelligent Ethernet/IP support required to cost-effectively deliver next-generation voice and dataservices.

Cisco continues its tradition of converged network services leadership with the introduction of the CE-Series and the Cisco ONS 15454 MSPP CE 8-port 10/100Base-T Ethernet Card, which helps enable the efficient delivery of private-line Ethernet services without a major overhaul or redesign of existing transport infrastructure.


Ethernet Card Overview

The Cisco CE 8-port Ethernet Card is a single-slot line card offering 8-port, 10/100-Mbps Ethernet via standard RJ-45 interfaces. Traffic from the eight interfaces is encapsulated into a SONET/SDH payload using either GFP or framing based on high-level data link control (HDLC). The resulting packet-over-SONET/SDH (POS) traffic is then mapped into a SONET circuit for transport across the network. These circuits form a one-to-one relationship with the eight front-panel ports and are referred to as virtual concatenated groups (VCGs). Each VCG uses low-order or high-order contiguous and/or virtual concatenation mechanisms to determine circuit sizing. The card also supports LCAS, which allows hitless dynamic adjustment of SONET/SDH link bandwidth. Additionally, each card supports packet processing, classification, queuing based on quality of service (QoS), and traffic-scheduling features, all required for supporting advanced services delivery.

The Cisco ONS 15454 MSPP CE 10/100Base-T Ethernet Card includes these features:

8-port 10/100Base-T, RJ-45 connectors

4 x 150 Mbps (4 x STS-3/VC4) SONET/SDH transport bandwidth per card

Each 10/100Base-T port mapped to SONET/SDH POS using GFP-F (ITU-T G.7041) or LAN Extension (LEX) (HDLC) encapsulation

Each POS can consist of high-order contiguous concatenation (CCAT) (SONET – STS-1, STS-3c; SDH – VC4) or VCAT (STS-1-1v, STS-1-2v, STS-1-3v) circuits

Each POS port can consist of low-order contiguous concatenation (CCAT) (SDH – VC3) or VCAT (SONET – VT1.5-Xv where X=1–64; SDH – VC12-Xv where X=1–63, VC3-1v, VC3-2v, VC3-3v) circuits

In-service capacity increment/decrement (ITU-T G.7042 LCAS)

Sub-50-millisecond (ms) SONET/SDH protection/restoration of transport circuits

Transparent to Layer 2 bridging, switching, Ethernet MAC control protocols (Cisco EtherChannel® technology, 802.1x, Cisco Discovery Protocol, VLAN Trunking Protocol [VTP], Spanning Tree Protocol), and VLAN (802.1Q and QinQ)

Ethernet link functions: autonegotiation, link speed auto sense, full/half duplex, flow control (802.3x)

QOS Capabilities – Packet prioritization based upon IP type of service (ToS) or 802.1P

Maximum packet size supported: 1548 bytes

A-to-z provisioning (Cisco Transport Controller and Cisco Transport Manager), TL-1 provisioning

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) alarms and Remote Monitoring (RMON) performance monitoring

Cisco Transport Controller/Cisco Transport Manager/TL-1 management

Interoperation with (over SONET/SDH) G-Series and ML-Series cards

Back-pressure flow control

Terminal and facility loopback

Link integrity support


Product Applications

Cisco ONS 15454 CE 8-port Ethernet Card provides the flexibility to meet the demands of a wide variety of private line Ethernet applications found within service provider and enterprise networks. Figures 2 and 3 outline a few of the applications that can be met using the CE-Series cards.

Cisco ONS 15454 CE 8-port Ethernet Card and the Cisco ONS 15310-CL CE Card are fully interoperable, allowing service providers to efficiently extend the Carrier Ethernet services across the metro and farther out into the access networks.

Reliable Enterprise Networking

When the Cisco ONS 15454 is equipped with the CE-Series card, enterprise users can build highly reliable multiservice networks to support data, voice, and video applications. Additionally, a network based on a Cisco ONS 15454 provides the flexibility to support traditional TDM-based services along with Ethernet services. The Cisco ONS 15454 provides transport scalability from 155 Mbps (OC-3/STM-1) up to 320Gbps (thirty-two 10-Gbps wavelengths), positioning the enterprise network for future growth.

Private Line Carrier Ethernet

A metropolitan network that supports a wide range of service capabilities allows service providers to offer a tariff mix to meet each customer’s needs. The Cisco ONS 15454 provides the foundation for building an advanced multiservice network over an extremely reliable SONET/SDH infrastructure (Figure 3). The Cisco ONS 15454 CE 8-port Ethernet Card helps enable the delivery of data services, such as transparent LAN services (TLS) or Internet access, over a carrier-class optical infrastructure supporting traditional TDM services. The CE-Series Ethernet Card, with VCAT and LCAS functions, helps service providers offer a wide variety of Ethernet service-level agreements (SLAs). VCAT provides a more efficient use of the transport bandwidth for data user interfaces, and LCAS provides an effective way for a service provider to change the allocated bandwidth to each customer. Additionally, provisioning of an Ethernet circuit over a network equipped with a CE 8-port Ethernet Card is easily accomplished through the use of the Cisco ONS 15454’s embedded a-to-z circuit provisioning wizard for network-level circuit creation. The CE 8-port Ethernet Card also supports TL-1-based provisioning to simplify integration with many embedded service provider management systems.
