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 guide explains how to install, turn up, provision, and maintain a Cisco ONS 15454 node and network.

For trouble clearing, alarm troubleshooting, and hardware replacement procedures, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide, Release 4.0.For detailed reference information, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Reference Manual, Release 4.0.

Updated About this Manual chapter

Document Organization

This guide provides procedures for installation, turn up, provisioning and acceptance of ONS 15454 nodes and ONS 15454 designed networks. It is organized in a Cisco recommended work flow sequence for new installations, in addition to allowing easy access to procedures and tasks associated with adds, moves, and changes for existing installations.

Verification procedures are provided, where necessary, to allow contract vendors to complete the physical installation and then turn the site over to craft personnel for verification, provisioning, turn up and acceptance. The front matter of the book is present in the following sequence:

1. Title Page

2. Table of Contents

3. List of Figures

4. List of Tables

5. List of Procedures

6. List of Tasks

The information in the book follows a task oriented hierarchy using the elements described below.

Chapter (Director Level)

The guide is divided into logical work groups (chapters) that serve as director entry into the procedures. For example, if you are arriving on site after a contractor has installed the shelf hardware, proceed to Chapter 2 "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable" and begin verifying installation and installing cards. You may proceed sequentially (recommended), or locate the work you want to perform from the list of procedures on the first page of every chapter (or turn to the front matter or index).

Non-Trouble Procedure (NTP)

Each NTP is a list of steps designed to accomplish a specific procedure. Follow the steps until the procedure is complete. If you need more detailed instructions, refer to the Detailed Level Procedure (DLP) specified in the procedure steps.

Note Throughout this guide, NTPs are referred to as "procedures" and DLPs are termed "tasks." Every reference to a procedure includes its NTP number, and every reference to a task includes its DLP number.

Detailed Level Procedure (DLP)

The DLP (task) supplies additional task details to support the NTP. The DLP lists numbered steps that lead you through completion of a task. Some steps require that equipment indications be checked for verification. When the proper response is not obtained, a trouble clearing reference is provided.
