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 chapter explains how to install the Cisco ONS 15454 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. 15 Install the Common Control Cards—Complete this procedure before installing any other cards.

2. 16 Install the Optical Cards—Complete this procedure as needed.

3. 17 Install the Electrical Cards—Complete this procedure as needed.

4. 18 Install the Ethernet Cards—Complete this procedure as needed.

5. 116 Remove and Replace a Card—Complete this procedure as needed to remove and replace a card, including deleting the card from Cisco Transport Controller (CTC) and changing an optical card without losing the card's provisioning.

6. 115 Preprovision a Slot—Complete this procedure as needed to provision an empty card slot with a card that will be installed later.

7. 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.

8. 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 15454-BLANK). The blank faceplate ensures proper airflow when operating the ONS 15454 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. 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.



Step 1 If you plan to install XC/XCVT cards, review Table 2-1 to determine card/slot compatibility. If you plan to install XC10G cards, review Table 2-2 to determine card/slot compatibility.

Step 2 Complete the "DLP-A36 Install the TCC+/TCC2 Cards" task.

Step 3 Complete the "DLP-A37 Install the XC, XCVT, or XC10G Cards" task.

Step 4 Complete the "DLP-A38 Install the Alarm Interface Controller or Alarm Interface Controller-International Card" task, if necessary.

Step 5 If you discover that you installed the wrong card in a slot, see the "116 Remove and Replace a Card" procedure.

Step 6 Proceed to the "16 Install the Optical Cards" procedure, the "17 Install the Electrical Cards" procedure, or the "18 Install the Ethernet Cards" procedure, as applicable for your site.

1 MS identifies slots 1 to 4 and 14 to 17 ("multispeed" slot).

2 HS identifies slots 5, 6, 12, and 13 ("high-speed" slot).

3 This identifies 1:N cards that operate as normal DS1 or DS3 cards when installed in certain slots.


Step 7 If you are installing optical cards, continue with the "16 Install the Optical Cards" procedure.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.


DLP-A36 Install the TCC+/TCC2 Cards

Purpose

This task installs redundant TCC+/TCC2 cards. The first card you install in the ONS 15454 must be a TCC+/TCC2, and it must initialize before you install any cross-connect or traffic cards.

Tools/Equipment

Two TCC+/TCC2 cards

Prerequisite Procedures

None

Required/As Needed

Redundant TCC+/TCC2 cards are required.

Onsite/Remote

Onsite

Security Level

Provisioning or higher



Note When installing cards, let each card completely boot before installing the next card.



Step 1 Open the latches/ejectors of the first TCC+/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 backplane. 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 If you are using the TCC2, proceed to Step 5. If you are using the TCC+, verify the LED activity:

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

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 data communication channel (DCC) processor boots.)

Proceed to Step 6.

Step 5 Verify the LED activity of the TCC2:

All LEDs turn on briefly.

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



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



Tip When a newly installed TCC+/TCC2 card has a different version of the ONS 15454 software installed than the version running on the active TCC+/TCC2, the newly installed TCC+/TCC2 card automatically copies the software version running on the active TCC+/TCC2. You do not need to do anything in this situation. However, the loading TCC+/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 TCC+/TCC2 card. After loading the new software for approximately 30 minutes, the TCC+/TCC2 card becomes the standby card and the amber LED is illuminated.


Step 6 Verify that the ACT/STBY LED is green for active. The IP address for the node, the temperature of the ONS 15454, and the time of day should be displayed on the LCD. The default time and date is 12:00 AM, January 1, 1970.

Step 7 The LCD cycles through the IP address, node name, and software version. Verify that the correct software version displays on the LCD.

Step 8 If the LCD shows the correct software version, continue with Step 9. If the LCD does not show the correct software version, upgrade the software or remove the TCC+/TCC2 card and install a replacement card.

Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Software Upgrade Guide or the "NTP-A163 Restore the Node to Factory Configuration" procedure on page 15-12 to replace the software. To swap the TCC+/TCC2, see the "116 Remove and Replace a Card" procedure.

Step 9 Open the latches/ejectors of the redundant TCC+/TCC2 card.

Step 10 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 11 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 12 If you are using the TCC2, proceed to Step 13. If you are using the TCC+, verify the LED activity:

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

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.)

Proceed to Step 14.

Step 13 Verify the LED activity of the TCC2:

All LEDs turn on for a short moment.

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 If the FAIL LED is illuminated continuously on the TCC+/TCC2 card, see the tip in Step 4 about the TCC+/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 14 Verify that the ACT/STBY LED is amber for standby.

Step 15 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

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.



Warning Class I (21 CFR 1040.10 and 1040.11) and Class 1M (IEC 60825-1 2001-01) laser products.



Warning Invisible laser radiation may be emitted from the end of the unterminated fiber cable or connector. Do not stare into the beam or view directly with optical instruments. Viewing the laser output with certain optical instruments (for example, eye loupes, magnifiers, and microscopes) within a distance of 100 mm may pose an eye hazard. Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than those specified may result in hazardous radiation exposure.



Warning On all optical cards except the OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 card, the laser is on even when the optical port is not in service. 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. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the lower-right outside edge of the shelf assembly.


Note To simplify path protection to bidirectional line switch ring (BLSR) 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.



Step 1 If you installed XC or XCVT cards, review Table 2-1 to determine card/slot compatibility. If you installed XC10G 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 and remains illuminated 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 ensure 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.

Step 8 If you discover that you installed the wrong card in a slot, complete the "116 Remove and Replace a Card" procedure.

Note Inspect and clean all fiber connectors thoroughly. See the "NTP-A112 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.



Note The Cisco OC-3 IR/STM-1 SH, OC-12 IR/STM-4 SH, and OC-48 IR/STM-16 SH interface optics, all working at 1310 nm, are optimized for the most widely used SMF-28 fiber, available from many suppliers.



Note Corning MetroCor fiber is optimized for optical interfaces that transmit at 1550 nm or in the C and L DWDM windows. This fiber targets interfaces with higher dispersion tolerances than those found in OC-3 IR/STM-1 SH, OC-12 IR/STM-4 SH, and OC-48 IR/STM-16 SH interface optics. If you are using Corning MetroCor fiber, OC-3 IR/STM-1 SH, OC- 12 IR/STM-4 SH, and OC-48 IR/STM-16 SH interface optics will become dispersion limited before they will become attenuation limited. In this case, consider using OC-3 LR/STM-1 LH, OC-12 LR/STM-4 LH, and OC-48 LR/STM-16 LH cards instead of OC-3 IR/STM-1 SH, OC-12 IR/STM-4 SH, and OC-48 IR/STM-16 SH cards.



Note With all fiber types, network planners/engineers should review the relative fiber type and optics specifications to determine attenuation, dispersion, and other characteristics to ensure appropriate deployment.



Step 1 Align the keyed ridge of the cable connector with the receiving SC connector on the faceplate connection point. Each card supports at least one transmit and one receive connector to create an optical carrier port. Figure 2-2 shows the cable location.

Figure 2-2 Installing Fiber-Optic Cables


Note The OC12 IR/STM4 SH 1310-4 card faceplate has four ports.


Step 2 Gently insert the cable connector into the faceplate connection point until the connector snaps into place.

Step 3 If you are installing fiber-optic cables on a OC12 IR/STM4 SH 1310-4 card, repeat Steps 1 and 2 until all SC connectors are in place.

Step 4 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

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-A112 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 path protection nodes.

Step 2 Plug the fiber into the transmit (Tx) connector of an OC-N card at one node and plug the other end of the fiber into the receive (Rx) connector of an OC-N card at the adjacent node. The card displays a SF LED if the transmit and receive fibers are mismatched (one fiber connects a receive port on one card to a receive port on another card, or the same situation with transmit ports).

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

Figure 2-3 shows fiber connections for a four-node path protection with trunk (span) cards in Slot 5 (west) and Slot 12 (east). If you are creating a path protection dual ring interconnect, Figure 2-4 shows a traditional dual ring interconnect example. Figure 2-5 shows an integrated dual ring interconnect example.

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 OC-48 IR/STM-16 SH AS 1310, OC-48 LR/STM-16 LH AS 1550, and OC-192 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 2-8 shows the fiber boot attachment.

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