Problem Description

The WaveEthernetphy interface of 10 GE daughter cards on the ONS15540 ESPx may show very high input receive power, even in the absence of an input signal in some scenarios. This problem is related to transponders with Functional Image Version 2.13 & Hardware Version 2.0-99, 3.0-99 & 4.0-99 only.

Background

This problem was found during engineering testing and was corrected through an update to the Functional Image.

Problem Symptoms

The Rx power level message may show >(-5dBm) without having an input signal. The A2D readings for the Trunk Rx power level may report a high reading without having an input signal to the trunk.

Workaround/Solution

This issue has been resolved through an update to the Functional Images of the 15540-10GE-03B301-15540-10GE-03B332 (TAN 800-18xxx-03 and later). Customers can download the appropriate Functional Images Version 2-14 from the Software Center on Cisco.com.

To update a line card functional image from a Flash memory device to a hardware controller, use the following command in privileged EXEC mode from a console session:

reprogram device:filename slot subslot

The updated Functional Images can be downloaded from the Software Center on Cisco.com from the ONS 15540 FPGA Software link.

The download process must be performed via local console access or local console access through a terminal server. The download process impacts traffic through the line card, so make certain to schedule a maintenance window to avoid unnecessary interruptions to customer traffic. Do not interrupt the download process. Wait for the process to complete before attempting any commands on the switch.

For additional information on Updating Line Card functional images consult Managing Your Cisco 15540 System located in the product Configuration Guide and Command Reference.
