Topology

This document uses a lab setup with four ONS 15454 nodes, namely, Studio Node 1, Studio Node 2, Studio Node 3 and Studio Node 4 (see Figure 1). These four nodes form one OC48 Unidirectional Path Switched Ring (UPSR).

Note: For ease of understanding, the rest of this document refers to these nodes as node 1, node 2, node 3 and node 4.

Figure 1 – Topology

Each node has one ML 100T card installed in slot 6 (see Figure 2).

Build a Four-Node RPR

Complete these steps in order to build an RPR with four nodes:

  1. Build a circuit between POS 1 on node 1 and POS 0 on node 2.

    Complete these steps:

    1. Choose Circuit > Create.

      The Circuit Creation dialog box appears:

      Figure 4 – Circuit Creation

      rpr_4nodes_ons15454_04.gif

    2. Select STS, and click Next.

      The Circuit Attributes window appears (see Figure 5).

    3. Type the circuit name in the Name field.

      Figure 5 – Circuit Attributes Window

      rpr_4nodes_ons15454_05.gif

    4. Select the relevant size of the circuit from the Size list, and the appropriate state from the State list.

    5. Click Next.

      The Source window appears (see Figure 6).

    6. Select Studio Node 1 as the source node from the Node list.

    7. Select 6 (ML100T) from the Slot list, and choose 1 (POS) from the Port list.

      Note: Always start the ring from pos 0 to pos 1.

      Figure 6 – Source Window

      rpr_4nodes_ons15454_06.gif

    8. Click Next.

      The Destination window appears (see Figure 7).

    9. Select Studio Node 2 as the destination node from the Node list.

    10. Select 6 (ML100T) from the Slot list, and choose 1 (POS) from the Port list.

    11. Click Next.

      The Circuit Routing Preferences window appears (see Figure 8).

      Uncheck the Fully Protected Path check box as the protection is performed by the RPR. You can either check Route Automatically or manually route the circuit. If you choose to route manually, go to step m.

    12. Uncheck the Fully Protected Path check box.

      Figure 8 – Circuit Routing Preferences Window

      rpr_4nodes_ons15454_08.gif

    13. Click Next.

      The Route Review/Edit window appears (see Figure 9).

    14. Select the source node, and click Add Span.

    15. Click Finish.

      The circuit creation is complete. Figure 9 shows the circuit between POS 1 on node 1 and POS 0 on node 2.
