Product Overview

Release 9.1 of the Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP expands the platform’s reconfiguration options. In addition to the existing 32-channel and 40-channel reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer (ROADM) cards, two new cards (Figure 1) are introduced in this release to optimize and increase the MSTP’s throughput density. By integrating multiple features on the same card (optical service channel [OSC], amplification, and ROADM), the single-module ROADM (SMR) cards are so compact that they can be added to any node in the network, extending optical add/drop multiplexing to the edge.

The new 40-channel single-module ROADM with integrated optical pre-amplifier (part number 40-SMR1-C) combines the OSC add/drop filter, a pre-amplifier, and a 2x1 wavelength selective switch (WSS)-based ROADM core into a single-slot unit. This unit is optimized for Degree-2 reconfigurable nodes.

The 40-channel single-module ROADM with integrated optical pre-amplifier and boost amplifier (part number 40-SMR2-C) includes the OSC add/drop filter, pre- and boost amplifiers, and a 4x1 WSS-based ROADM core. This unit provides an effective way to support multi-degree nodes up to Degree-4, allowing in-service upgrade from Degree-2 up to Degree-4 at a very competitive price point.

Similarly to the already available 40-channel wavelength cross-connect (40-WXC) card, and thanks to the software functionalities extended from previous releases, the 40-SMR2-C card provides multi-degree switching capabilities at the individual wavelength level. Mesh and multi-ring network topologies can now be deployed using the Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP with complete flexibility of service routing at all nodes in the network.

Individual channels separation, required on the add/drop ports to terminate local traffic, is provided by the new Cisco ONS 15216 40-channel multiplexer/demultiplexer patch panel (odd channels). The use of athermal Arrayed Waveguide Grating (AWG) technology allows the removal of the multiplexer and demultiplexer function from the Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP shelf. This approach provides many benefits to customers, including:

Simplified connectivity to passive patch-panels: 4 LC cables instead of 20 MPO cables.

Improved density: passive multiplexing and demultiplexing frees up slots in the main chassis to be used for traffic.

Single-module ROADM (SMR) units increase the density of the Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP. An SMR1-based Degree-2 node can increase a single-shelf throughput by 500 percent compared to the supported throughput in Release 9.0 (200 Gbps vs. 40 Gbps), as the additional free slots can be used to install transponder cards. A similar improvement can be obtained in Degree-4 nodes. A 40-WXC-based Degree-4 node requires two shelves for the common optics without any available slot for the transponder. An SMR2-based Degree-4 node provides 400 Gbps of traffic in the same two shelves, or 120 Gbps of traffic when installed into a single shelf. See Table 1 for details.

Deployment Application

40-channel single-module ROADM with integrated optical pre-amplifier – C band – odd channels

This is the key unit for the Degree-2 single-module ROADM solutions operating in the C band, odd channels. It allows the possibility to remotely and automatically control a wavelength to bypass or be added in a node of the network.

The unit includes a 2-stage pre-amplifier that allows the insertion of dispersion-management devices to compensate for pulse spreading at higher multiplexer speeds. Automatic per-channel power monitoring and control capabilities embedded in the unit (Dynamic Gain Equalization – DGE) improve overall system performance.

Used in conjunction with the Cisco ONS 15216 40-Channel Multiplexer/Demultiplexer Patch Panel Odd, it allows management of the local add/drop traffic.

40-channel single-module ROADM with integrated optical pre-amplifier and boost amplifier – C band – odd channels

This is the key unit to provide a Degree-2 solution that can scale, in-service, to a Degree-4 multi-degree ROADM solution operating in the C band, odd channels. When installed in conjunction with the 4-Degree single-module ROADM mesh patch panel, it allows the possibility to remotely and automatically control a wavelength to be routed to any of the 4 directions of a multi-degree ROADM node.

Unit includes a 2-stage pre-amplifier that allows the insertion of dispersion-management devices to compensate for pulse spreading at higher multiplexer speeds and a booster amplifier to increase the power of outgoing composite DWDM signal to overcome the attenuation of the fiber network. Automatic per-channel power monitoring and control capabilities embedded in the unit (Dynamic Gain Equalization – DGE) improve overall system performance.

Used in conjunction with the Cisco ONS 15216 40-Channel Multiplexer/Demultiplexer Patch Panel Odd, it allows you to manage the local add/drop traffic of the specific direction supported by the 40-SMR2 unit.

Cisco ONS 15216 40-channel multiplexer/demultiplexer patch panel (odd)

This passive 2-rack-unit (2RU) is used in Degree-2 and multi-degree ROADM nodes based on the 40-SMR1-C and 40-SMR2-C to manage the local add/drop function on the specific direction(s) supported by the 40-SMR1-C and 40-SMR2-C units.

For additional details, please refer to the Cisco ONS 15216 Mux/Demux 40 Channel Patch Panel and Cisco ONS 15216 Mux/Demux Patch Panel 50 GHz Interleaver De-Interleaver data sheet.

4-degree single-module ROADM mesh patch panel

This passive 1RU is used in multi-degree ROADM nodes with up to four 40-SMR2-C units to provide broadcast functionalities and replicate to all the directions of the node the wavelengths to be routed through the ROADM node.

The Cisco ONS 15454 single-module ROADM cards (40-SMR1-C and 40-SMR2-C) operate on the ITU 100-GHz wavelength plan. Each card integrates automatic per-channel power monitor and control capabilities, providing node- and network-based automatic-power-level management on each input and output port. Per-channel optical path selection is also done in a completely automated way through Wavelength Path Provisioning (WPP) at the network level, featuring end-to-end, point-and-click wavelength provisioning and easy SONET/SDH-like wavelength management.

The ROADM node architecture has been specifically defined and engineered to provide:

High reliability – Enables complete independence between specific direction-facing units with the possibility to house units in physically separated shelves.

Automatic optical power balancing – Per-channel automatic power control allows a “self-healing” intelligent approach to DWDM, which is unique in the market.

Low insertion loss – Selected technology allows direct integration of different functionalities in the same optical module, reducing to the bare minimum the number of optical connections.

Reduced footprint – SMR units integrate multiple functions into a single card (amplification, OSC add/drop, ROADM, and power monitoring), reducing node power consumption and increasing shelf throughput.

The optical cards incorporate faceplate-mounted LEDs to provide a quick visual check of the operational status at the card. Printed on each of the faceplates is an icon, an orange circle, which is mapped to shelf-slot icons indicating the shelf slot where the card can be physically installed. The cards are supported by the integrated Cisco ONS 15454 Cisco Transport Controller craft manager, which provides the user access for operations, administration, maintenance, and provisioning (OAM&P) for the system. Taking advantage of the embedded units’ capabilities, Cisco Transport Controller can also provide a per-channel graphical representation of the optical power levels associated with each individual path in the ROADM nodes (Figure 2).

Complete flexibility provided by the single-module ROADM units greatly simplifies the design of optical networks in terms of unit placement. However this flexibility alone is not enough to allow users to define any possible optical path at the network level. The Cisco Transport Planner (CTP) optical design tool features the possibility to design DWDM networks based on ROADM functionalities and to verify all the possible optical paths and the DWDM interface types defined by the user. A truly flexible network design resulting from the selection of both optical paths and DWDM interface types is highly customizable by the user, who can compare different solutions and create hypothetical scenarios in a simple and effective way.
