Using the DWDM and SONET Commands


The Cisco IP over dense wavelength division multiplexing (IPoDWDM) solution enables the convergence of the IP and DWDM core networks of the service providers. It increases service flexibility, operational efficiency and reliability while lowering operating expenses (OpEx) and capital expenditures (CapEx).

Cisco Prime Network discovers and displays the following DWDM attributes in the Physical Inventory tree of the Cisco Prime Network Vision

DWDM controllers. The controller location is same as the DWDM interface.

Loopback information for the DWDM controller.

DWDM controller status.

DWDM port properties—Wavelength, Laser Status, Tx Power, and Rx Power.

DWDM controller card status (G.709 status).

See the Cisco Prime Network 3.8 User Guide for more details on the physical and logical inventory information for the device.

Prime Network provides commands that support DWDM and Synchronous Optical Network (SONET) controllers. These commands help in configuring the device and in displaying device details.

Supported Network Elements

You can run the DWDM commands on the following network elements:

Cisco 7600 Series Routers

Cisco CRS Carrier Routing System

Cisco CRS series includes Cisco CRS-1 and Cisco CRS-3 Carrier Routing Systems.
