Note Except where noted, the procedures and tasks in this chapter apply to both DWDM (Software Release 4.5) and non-DWDM (Software Release 4.1 and earlier) nodes.


Before You Begin

Before performing any of the following procedures, investigate all alarms and clear any trouble conditions. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide as necessary.


Caution Changing card settings can be service affecting. You should make all changes during a scheduled maintenance window.

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

Caution When provisioning orderwire for ONS 15454 SDHs residing in a ring, do not provision a complete orderwire loop. For example, a four-node ring typically has east and west ports provisioned at all four nodes. However, to prevent orderwire loops, provision two orderwire ports (east and west) at all but one of the ring nodes.


Tip Before you begin, make a list of the ONS 15454 SDH slots and ports that require orderwire communication.



Step 1 In node view, double-click the AIC-I card to display it in card view.

Step 2 Click the Provisioning > Local Orderwire tabs or the Provisioning > Express Orderwire tabs, depending on the orderwire path that you want to create.

Figure 13-6 shows the Local Orderwire subtab. Provisioning steps are the same for both types of orderwire.

Figure 13-6 Provisioning Local Orderwire

Step 3 If needed, adjust the Tx and Rx dBm by moving the slider to the right or left for the headset type (four-wire or two-wire) that you will use. In general, you should not need to adjust the dBm.

Step 4 If you want to turn on the audible alert (buzzer) for the orderwire, check the Buzzer On check box.

Step 5 Click Apply.

Step 6 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

Step 1 Complete the "DLP-D60 Log into CTC" task on page 3-23 at the nodew where you want to convert the E1-N-14 and DS3i-N-12 cards from 1:1. If you are already logged in, proceed to Step 2.

Step 2 Complete the "NTP-D108 Back Up the Database" procedure on page 17-8.

Step 3 Perform any of the following tasks as needed:

DLP-D176 Convert E1-N-14 Cards From 1:1 to 1:N Protection

Purpose

This task converts E1-N-14 cards in a 1:1 protection scheme to 1:N protection. A 1:n protection group can protect a maximum of five working cards.

Note This procedure assumes E1-N-14 cards are installed in Slots 1 through 6 and/or Slots 12 through 17. The E1-N-14 cards in Slots 3 and 15 are the protect cards. Each protect card protects the other E1-N-14 cards in that half of the shelf. The ONS 15454 SDH must run CTC Release 4.0 or later.



Step 1 In node view, click the Maintenance > Protection tabs.

Step 2 Click the protection group that contains Slot 3 or Slot 15 (where you will install the protect E1-N-14 card).

Step 3 Make sure the slot you are upgrading is not carrying working traffic. In the Selected Group list, the protect slot must say Protect/Standby and not Working/Active. If the protect slot status is Working/Active, use the following steps to switch traffic to the working card:

a. Under Selected Group, click the protect card.

b. Next to Switch Commands, click Switch.

The working slot should change to Working/Active and the protect slot should change to Protect/Standby. If they do not change, do not continue. Troubleshoot the working card and slot to determine why the card cannot carry working traffic.

Step 4 Repeat Steps 1 through 3 for each protection group that you need to convert.

Step 5 Verify that no standing alarms exist for any of the E1-N-14 cards that you are converting. If alarms exist and you have difficulty clearing them, contact your next level of support.

Step 6 Click the Provisioning > Protection tabs.

Step 7 Click the 1:1 protection group that contains the cards that you will move into the new protection group.

Step 8 Click Delete.

Step 9 When the confirmation dialog box appears, click Yes.


Note Deleting the 1:1 protection group does not disrupt service. However, no protection bandwidth exists for the working circuits until you complete the 1:N protection procedure. Therefore, complete this procedure as quickly as possible.


Step 10 If needed, repeat Steps 7 through 9 for other protection groups.

Step 11 Physically insert an E1-N-14 card into the protection slot (Slot 3 or Slot 15).

Step 12 Verify that the card boots up properly.

Step 13 Click the Inventory tab and verify that the new card appears as an E1-N-14.

Step 14 Click the Provisioning > Protection tabs.

Step 15 Click Create.

Step 16 Type a name for the protection group in the Name field (optional).

Step 17 From the Type drop-down menu, choose 1:N (card).

Step 18 From the Protect Card drop-down menu, choose the E1-N-14 card. Verify that the correct E1-N-14 card appears in the Protect Card field.

Step 19 In the Available Cards list, highlight the cards that you want in the protection group. Click the arrow (>>) tab to move the cards to the Working Cards list.

Step 20 If necessary, set a new reversion time in the Reversion time drop-down menu.


Note 1:N protection groups are always revertive.


Step 21 Click OK. The protection group appears in the Protection Groups list on the Protection subtab.

Step 22 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

b. Next to Switch Commands, click Switch.

The working slot should change to Working/Active and the protect slot should change to Protect/Standby. If they fail to change, do not continue. Troubleshoot the working card and slot to determine why the card cannot carry working traffic.

Step 4 Repeat Steps 2 and 3 for each protection group that you need to convert.

Step 5 Verify that no standing alarms exist for any of the DS3i-N-12 cards you are converting. If alarms exist and you have difficulty clearing them, contact your next level of support.

Note Deleting the 1:1 protection groups will not disrupt service. However, no protection bandwidth exists for the working circuits until the 1:N protection procedure is completed. Therefore, complete this procedure as soon as possible.


Step 10 If you are deleting more than one protection group, repeat Steps 7 through 9 for each group.

Step 11 Physically insert a DS3i-N-12 card into the same slot.

Step 12 Verify that the card boots up properly.

Step 13 Click the Inventory tab and verify that the new card appears as a DS3i-N-12 card.

Step 14 Click the Provisioning > Protection tabs.

Port #

Port number (read-only)

Displays port number and TX or RX

Port Name

Provides the ability to assign the specified port a name

User-defined. Name can be up to 32 alphanumeric/special characters. Blank by default.

See the "DLP-D314 Assign a Name to a Port" task on page 8-18.

State

Places port in service, out of service, out of service-maintenance, or out of service-auto in service.

IS

OOS

OOS_MT

OOS_AINS

Line Direction

Provides the ability to associate a card with the line direction. Use this field if you have two cards in the same shelf and must designate which one will carry the traffic flow from East to West, the second card will carry traffic from West to East.

East to West

West to East

Type

Identifies the type of port such as Input Com, Output Com, Input Line, Output Line, Input OSC, and Output OSC.

Read only

Power

Shows the current power level per port.

Read only

VOA Mode

Shows the current functional mode of the VOA: constant gain mode, constant power mode, or not in use (N/A).

Read only

VOA Power Ref.

Shows the value of the optical output power going to a VOA when constant power mode is active. ANS is the only function that can modify this value.

Read only

VOA Power Calib.

The user can modify the optical output power to the VOA if necessary. This feature is normally used when the system is configured as "access" in Provisioning > WDM-ANS.

Numeric

VOA Attenuation Ref.

Shows the attenuation value of the VOA when the VOA is set in attenuation mode. ANS and APC are the only functions that can modify this value.

Read only

VOA Attenuation Calib.

The user can modify the attenuation value of the VOA if necessary when the VOA mode is set for constant attenuation.

Numeric

Actual Wavelength

Shows the wavelength specified by the manufacturing data. This field cannot be set manually.

Read only

Expected Wavelength

Shows the preprovisioned wavelength. This field is used to preprovsion cards. For example you can specify a generic AD-1C in Slot 15 and set the expected wavelength to 1552.52. The result is a AD-1C-52.5. If the actual equipment installed does not match the preprovisioned slot, an MEA Mismatch Equipment Alarm occurs.
