About this Manual

Note The terms "Unidirectional Path Switched Ring" and "UPSR" may appear in Cisco literature. These terms do not refer to using Cisco ONS 15xxx products in a unidirectional path switched ring configuration. Rather, these terms, as well as "Path Protected Mesh Network" and "PPMN," refer generally to Cisco's path protection feature, which may be used in any topological network configuration. Cisco does not recommend using its path protection feature in any particular topological network configuration.

This manual provides reference information for the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH.

To install, turn up, provision, and maintain a Cisco ONS 15454 SDH node and network, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.
