This chapter explains how to install the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH cards and fiber-optic cable (fiber).

Before You Begin

This section lists the chapter procedures (NTPs). Turn to a procedure for applicable tasks (DLPs).

1. Before beginning any procedure in this chapter, make sure you have completed the "NTP-D13 Perform the Shelf Installation Acceptance Test" section on page 1-44.

2. 15 Install the Common Control Cards—Complete this procedure before installing any other cards.

3. 16 Install the Optical Cards—Complete this procedure as needed.

4. 17 Install the Electrical Cards—Complete this procedure as needed.

5. 18 Install the Ethernet Cards—Complete this procedure as needed.

6. 227 Remove and Replace a Card—Complete this procedure as needed to remove and replace a card, including deleting the card from CTC and changing an optical card without losing the card's provisioning.

7. 115 Preprovision a Slot—Complete this procedure as needed to provision an empty card slot with a card that will be installed later.

8. 19 Install the Fiber-Optic Cables—Complete this procedure to install fiber on the optical cards or Ethernet Gigabit Interface Converters (GBICs) and to route the fiber through the bottom of the shelf.

9. 20 Replace the Front Door—If the front door was removed, complete this procedure to replace the front door and ground strap after installing cards and fiber.


Warning Only trained and qualified personnel should be allowed to install, replace, or service this equipment.



Caution Unused card slots should be filled with a blank faceplate (Cisco P/N 15454E-BLANK). The blank faceplate ensures proper airflow when operating the ONS 15454 SDH without the front door attached, although Cisco recommends that the front door remain attached.

Warning During this procedure, wear grounding wrist straps to avoid ESD damage to the card. Do not directly touch the backplane with your hand or any metal tool due to electrical hazard.



Caution Always use the supplied ESD wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454 SDH. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the lower-right outside edge of the shelf assembly.


Note If you install a card incorrectly, the FAIL LED flashes continuously.


ONS 15454 SDH cards have electrical plugs at the back that plug into electrical connectors on the back panel of the shelf assembly. When the card ejectors are fully closed, the cards plug into the back panel of the shelf assembly. Figure 2-1 shows card installation.

DLP-D332 Install the TCC2 Cards

Purpose

Use this task to install redundant TCC2 cards. The first card you install in the ONS 15454 SDH must be a TCC2, and it must initialize before you install any cross-connect or traffic cards.

Tools/Equipment

Two TCC2 cards

Prerequisite Procedures

DLP-D33 Measure Voltage, page 1-45

Required/As Needed

Redundant TCC2 cards are required.

Onsite/Remote

Onsite

Security Level

Provisioning or higher



Step 1 Open the latches/ejectors of the first TCC2 card that you will install.

Step 2 Use the latches/ejectors to firmly slide the card along the guide rails until the card plugs into the receptacle at the back of the slot (Slot 7 or 11).

Step 3 Verify that the card is inserted correctly and close the latches/ejectors on the card.


Note It is possible to close the latches/ejectors when the card is not completely plugged into the back panel of the shelf assembly. Ensure that you cannot insert the card any further.


If you insert a card into a slot provisioned for a different card, all LEDS turn off.

Step 4 Verify the LED activity:

All LEDs blink once.

The red FAIL LED, the yellow ACT/STBY LED, the red REM LED, the green SYNC LED, and the green ACO LED turn on and remain illuminated for about 10 seconds.

The red FAIL LED and the green ACT/STBY LED turn on and remain illuminated for about 40 seconds.

The red FAIL LED blinks for about 10 seconds.

The red FAIL LED remains illuminated for about 5 seconds.

All LEDs (including the CRIT, MAJ, MIN, REM, SYNC, and ACO LEDs) blink once and turn off for about 10 seconds.

The ACT/STBY LED turns on. (The ACT/STBY LED might take several minutes to illuminate while the DCC processor boots.)


Note Alarm LEDs might be illuminated; disregard alarm LEDs until you are logged into CTC and can view the Alarms tab.



Note If the FAIL LED is illuminated continuously on the TCC2 card, see the tip below about the TCC2 automatic upload.



Tip When a newly installed TCC2 card has a different version of the ONS 15454 SDH software installed than the version running on the active TCC2, the newly installed TCC2 card automatically copies the software version running on the active TCC2. You do not need to do anything in this situation. However, the loading TCC2 card does not boot up in the normal manner. When the card is first inserted, the red FAIL LED stays on for a short period. The FAIL LED then blinks normally and all LEDs go dark. The FAIL LED and the ACT/STBY LED flash alternately every 30 to 45 seconds as the new software loads onto the new TCC2 card. After loading the new software for approximately 30 minutes, the TCC2 card becomes the standby card and the amber LED is illuminated.


Step 5 Verify that the ACT/STBY LED is green for active. The IP address for the node, the temperature of the ONS 15454 SDH, and the time of day should be displayed on the LCD. The default time and date is 12:00 AM, January 1, 1970.

Step 6 The LCD cycles through the IP address, node name, and software version. Verify that the correct software version displays on the LCD.


Note On the TCC2, you can check the function of the LEDs by pushing the LAMP TEST button.


Step 7 If the LCD shows the correct software version, continue with Step 8. If the LCD does not show the correct software version, upgrade the software or remove the TCC2 card and install a replacement card.

Refer to "NTP-D163 Restore the Node to Factory Configuration" procedure on page 15-12 to replace the software. To swap the TCC2, see the "227 Remove and Replace a Card" procedure.

Step 8 Open the latches/ejectors of the redundant TCC2 card.

Step 9 Use the latches/ejectors to firmly slide the card along the guide rails until the card plugs into the receptacle at the back of the slot (Slot 7 or 11).

Step 10 Verify that the card is inserted correctly and close the latches/ejectors on the card.


Note It is possible to close the latches/ejectors when the card is not completely plugged into the back panel of the shelf assembly. Ensure that you cannot insert the card any further.


Step 11 Verify the LED activity:

The red FAIL LED turns on and remains illuminated for 20 to 30 seconds. If the red FAIL LED does not illuminate, check the power.

The red FAIL LED blinks for 35 to 45 seconds.

The red FAIL LED remains illuminated for 5 to 10 seconds.

All LEDs (including the CRIT, MAJ, MIN, REM, SYNC, and ACO LEDs) blink once and turn off for 5 to 10 seconds.

The ACT/STBY LED turns on. (The ACT/STBY LED might take several minutes to illuminate while the DCC processor boots.)


Note If the FAIL LED is illuminated continuously on the TCC2 card, see the tip in Step 4 about the TCC2 automatic upload.



Note If you insert a card into a slot provisioned for a different card, all LEDS turn off.



Note Alarm LEDs might be illuminated; disregard alarm LEDs until you are logged into CTC and can view the Alarms tab.


Step 12 Verify that the ACT/STBY LED is amber for standby.

Step 13 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

On the OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 card, the laser is active when the card is booted and the safety key is in the on position (labeled 1). The laser is off when the safety key is off (labeled 0).



Caution Always use the supplied ESD wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454 SDH. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the lower-right outside edge of the shelf assembly.


Note To simplify subnetwork connection protection (SNCP) to multiplex section-shared protection ring (MS-SPRing) conversion and node addition, equip optical cards according to a high-speed east (Slots 12 and 13) and west (Slots 5 and 6) configuration. This configuration is not mandatory.



Note If you install a card incorrectly, the FAIL LED flashes continuously.



Note If you plan to install small form-factor pluggables (SFPs) in an MXP_2.5G_10G, see "DLP-D335 Install GBIC or SFP Connectors" task.



Step 1 If you installed XCVXL 2.5G cards, review Table 2-1 to determine card/slot compatibility. If you installed XC10 or XCVXL 10G cards, review Table 2-2 to determine card/slot compatibility.

Install higher-capacity cards first; for example, install an OC-192 card before installing an OC-48 card. Let each card completely boot before installing the next card.

Step 2 Open the card latches/ejectors.


Warning Before installing an OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 card, make sure the safety key on the faceplate is in off position (labeled 0). When in the on position (labeled 1), the laser is activated.


Step 3 Use the latches/ejectors to firmly slide the optical card along the guide rails until the card plugs into the receptacle at the back of the slot.

Step 4 Verify that the card is inserted correctly and close the latches/ejectors on the card.


Note It is possible to close the latches/ejectors when the card is not completely plugged into the backplane. Ensure that you cannot insert the card any further.


Step 5 Verify the LED activity:

The red FAIL LED turns on for 20 to 30 seconds.

The red FAIL LED blinks for 35 to 45 seconds.

All LEDs blink once and turn off for 5 to 10 seconds.

The ACT or ACT/STBY LED turns on. The signal fail (SF) LED can persist until all card ports connect to their far end counterparts and a signal is present.

Step 6 If the card does not boot up properly, or the LED activity does not mirror Step 5, check the following:

When a physical card type does not match the type of card provisioned for that slot in CTC, the card might not boot. If an optical card does not boot, open CTC and verify that the slot is not provisioned for a different card type before assuming the card is faulty.

If the red FAIL LED does not illuminate, check the power.

If you insert a card into a slot provisioned for a different card, all LEDS turn off.

If the red FAIL LED is illuminated continuously or the LEDs behave erratically, the card is not installed properly. Remove the card and repeat Steps 2 to 5.

Step 7 Complete the "19 Install the Fiber-Optic Cables" procedure.


Note If you discover that you installed the wrong card in a slot, complete the "227 Remove and Replace a Card" procedure.


Stop. You have completed this procedure.

Note To avoid error, connect fiber-optic cable so that the farthest slot to the right represents the east port, and the farthest slot to the left represents the west port. Fiber connected to an east port at one node must plug into the west port on an adjacent node.



Note Inspect and clean all fiber connectors thoroughly. See the "NTP-D112 Clean Fiber Connectors" procedure on page 15-23 for instructions. Dust particles can degrade performance. Put caps on any fiber connectors that are not used.



Step 1 Plug the fiber into the transmit (Tx) connector of an STM-N card at one node and plug the other end of the fiber into the receive (Rx) connector of an STM-N card at the adjacent node. The card displays an SF LED if the transmit and receive fibers are mismatched (for example, one fiber connects a receive port on one card to a receive port on another card).

DLP-D338 Install Fiber-Optic Cables for MS-SPRing Configurations

Purpose

Use this task to install the fiber optics to the east and west MS-SPRing ports at each node. See Chapter 5, "Turn Up Network" to provision and test MS-SPRing configurations.

Tools/Equipment

Fiber-optic cables

Prerequisite Procedures

16 Install the Optical Cards

NTP-D112 Clean Fiber Connectors, page 15-23

Required/As Needed

Required for a MS-SPRing configuration

Onsite/Remote

Onsite

Security Level

None



Note To avoid error, connect fiber-optic cable so that the farthest slot to the right represents the east port, and the farthest slot to the left represents the west port. Fiber connected to an east port at one node must plug into the west port on an adjacent node.



Note Inspect and clean all fiber connectors thoroughly. See the "NTP-D112 Clean Fiber Connectors" procedure on page 15-23 for instructions. Dust particles can degrade performance. Put caps on any fiber connectors that are not used.



Step 1 Plan your fiber connections. Use the same plan for all MS-SPRing nodes.

Step 2 Plug the fiber into the transmit (Tx) connector of an STM-N card at one node and plug the other end into the receive (Rx) connector of an STM-N card at the adjacent node. The card displays a SF LED if the transmit and receive fibers are mismatched.


Note Do not mix working and protect card connections when connecting a four-fiber MS-SPRing. The MS-SPRing does not function if working and protect cards are interconnected. See Figure 2-8 for an example of correct four-fiber MS-SPRing cabling.


Step 3 Repeat Step 2 until you have configured the ring.

Figure 2-7 shows fiber connections for a two-fiber MS-SPRing with trunk (span) cards in Slot 5 (west) and Slot 12 (east).

DLP-D45 Install the Fiber Boot

Purpose

Use this task to install the fiber boot.

Tools/Equipment

Fiber boot

Prerequisite Procedures

16 Install the Optical Cards

NTP-D112 Clean Fiber Connectors, page 15-23

Required/As Needed

Required for all optical cards except the OC-192 and the OC-48 AS cards.

Onsite/Remote

Onsite

Security Level

None



Note You can install the fiber boots on the fiber-optic cables before or after the fibers are attached to the optical card.



Note The fiber boot does not support the OC48 IR/STM16 SH AS 1310, OC48 LR/STM16 LH AS 1550, and OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 cards. The boots are not necessary for these cards because of the angled SC connectors on the cards.



Note If you are installing an OC3IR/STM1SH 1310-8 card, you must use a fiber clip instead of a fiber boot on the port 8 RX fiber connector.



Step 1 Position the open slot of the fiber boot underneath the fiber cable.

Step 2 Push the fiber cable down into the fiber boot. Figure 2-9 shows the fiber boot attachment.

Step 3 Twist the fiber boot to lock the fiber cable into the tail end of the fiber boot.

Step 4 Slide the fiber boot forward along the fiber cable until the fiber boot fits snugly onto the end of the SC cable connector.

Step 1 Open the fold-down front door on the cable-management tray (Figure 2-10).

Figure 2-10 Fold-Down Front Door of the Cable-Management Tray


Note GBICs and SFPs do not have fiber clips; therefore, if you are routing optical cable from an E1000-2-G, G1000-4, G1K-4, or ML1000-2 card, skip to Step 3.


Step 2 Route the fiber cable on the card faceplate through the fiber clip on the faceplate. Fiber clips are factory-attached to the faceplate of the optical card.

Figure 2-11 Routing Fiber-Optic Cables on the Optical-Card Faceplate

Step 3 Route the fiber cables into the cable-management tray (Figure 2-11).

Step 4 Route the fiber cables out either side of the cable-management tray through the cutouts on each side of the shelf assembly. Use the reversible fiber guides to route cables out the desired side.

Step 5 Close the fold-down front door when all fiber cables in the front compartment are properly routed.
