C.1.3  Slot Properties—CTX-2500

The slot properties pane displays information about the Cisco ONS 15310 MA SONET or ONS 15310 MA SDH slot that is selected in the NE Explorer tree. Use this properties pane to change the card properties.

The CTX-2500 card, for use with the ONS 15310 MA SONET or ONS 15310 MA SDH, is a fully nonblocking cross-connect card that operates in a redundant configuration. It performs system initialization, provisioning, alarm reporting, maintenance, diagnostics, IP address detection/resolution, SONET data communications channel (DCC) termination, system fault detection, and cross-connect maintenance and management for the ONS 15310 MA SONET and ONS 15310 MA SDH. The card also provides the circuitry for the OC-3/OC-12/OC-48 interfaces, and ensures that the system maintains timing with SMC stability.

The CTX-2500 card provides 576 x 576 STS-1 level cross-connections, 96 x 96 TU-3 level cross-connections, 2688 x 2688 VT1.5s, or 2016 x 2016 VT2s.

The CTX-2500 card can be installed in slots 3 or 4. Protection switches between the active and standby CTX-2500 are hitless (less than a 50-ms impact to any traffic).

The CTX-2500 supports errorless side switches (switching from one CTX-2500 on one side of the shelf to the other CTX-2500 on the other side of the shelf) when the switch is initiated through software and is caused by a software upgrade.

There are two PPM (small form factor pluggable [SFP]) slots on the CTX-2500 faceplate. Each slot can contain a one-port PPM. Cisco-qualified SFPs can be single-rate (OC-3, OC-12, or OC-48) or multirate (OC-3, OC-12, and OC-48). Single-rate PPMs are autoprovisioned when they are installed, but multirate PPMs must be provisioned. This behavior can be controlled by NE defaults.

The following figure shows the CTX-2500 card faceplate.

Figure C-1 CTX-2500 Faceplate

For the CTX-2500 module, the slot properties pane displays the following properties: Module View, Identification, Pluggable Provisioning, Line, STS, VT, Loopback, Alarm Behavior, Transceiver, Auto Laser Shutdown, Protection, J1 Path Trace, and Section Trace.

C.1.15  Slot Properties—TNC and TNCE

(Cisco ONS 15454 M2 and ONS 15454 M6 only)

The Transport Node Controller (TNC) and the Transport Node Controller - Enhanced (TNCE) combines the functions of multiple cards such as TCC2P, OSCM, ISC, and AIC-I. The cards support the ONS 15454 M2 and ONS 15454 M6 shelf assemblies. The TNCE card is optimized for Ethernet transport and has support for Synchronous-Ethernet (SyncE) and IEEE1588-2008 Precision Time Protocol to add support for Two-Way Time Transfer (TWTT).

The TNC and TNCE cards are provisioned as master and slave in the ONS 15454 M6 shelf, and as a stand-alone card in the ONS 15454 M2 shelf. The TNC and TNCE card serves as the processor card for the node. The TNC and TNCE cards cannot be inserted in the same shelf.

On the ONS 15454 M6 shelf, install redundant TNC and TNCE cards in slots 1 and 8. If the active TNC or TNCE card fails, system traffic switches to the redundant TNC or TNCE card respectively. The card supports line cards from slots 2 to 7.

On the ONS 15454 M2 shelf, install the stand-alone TNC or TNCE card in slot 1. The TNC and TNCE cards support line cards in slots 2 and 3.

The following figure shows the TNC faceplate and block diagram.


Note Both the TNC and TNCE cards are displayed as TNC in the NE Explorer.

The 2.5G-DMP card is capable of translating client input GE, ESCON, FICON, 1G and 2G Fiber Channel, and IBM GDPS optical signal into an optical signal with an optical frequency on the 100 GHz spacing frequency grid according to ITU-T G.692. The datamux cards are GR-253 and G.957 compliant. This card supports eight client interfaces utilizing SFP technology and protection on the trunk side. 32 ITU wavelengths are supported. Each card supports tunability over four wavelengths. This card is supported on ONS 15454 SONET and ONS 15454 SDH platforms.

The following figure shows the card faceplate.

The slot properties pane displays information about the Cisco ONS 15454 SONET or ONS 15454 SDH slot that is selected in the NE Explorer tree. Use this properties pane to change the card properties.

The 2.5-Gb/s multirate transponder cards operate on the ITU grid and provide the ONS 15454 SONET and ONS 15454 SDH with enhanced economics in metro DWDM solutions. The multirate transponder cards provide a 2R/3R transponder functionality over a bit rate of 100 Mb/s to 2.5 Gb/s. The cards also provide a single-mode fiber DWDM interface. Multirate transponder cards use pluggable small form factor client interfaces. The cards translate the client input optical signal into an optical signal with an optical frequency on the spacing frequency grid according to ITU-T G.692. The cards are GR-253 and G.957 compliant.

There are two versions of the multirate 2.5G transponder card:

Multirate 2.5G transponder, nonfiber-protected (TXP_MR_2.5G_xx.x)

Multirate 2.5G transponder, fiber-protected (TXPP_MR_2.5G_xx.x)

Prime Optical supports DVB-ASI and ISC1 payloads on TXP_MR_2.5G and TXPP _MR_2.5G cards. Using these payloads, you can:

Manage L1 circuits and links with endpoints.

Manage historical PM data and alarms related to the client payloads for TXP-MR-2.5G and TXPP-MR-2.5G cards.

Retrieve and set RMON thresholds.

Perform the following steps to provision the payloads:


Step 1 Click the OTN Properties pane.

Step 2 Disable FEC and G709 OTN. If G709 is not disabled, PPM cannot be enabled.

Step 3 Click the PPM Properties pane and create a PPM for port 1.

Step 4 Provision the rate DVB-ASI or ISC1 by selecting the appropriate rate in the Port Rate drop-down list.



Note When using protection groups, you can provision only the working port.
