Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable


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. D15 Install the Common Control Cards—Complete this procedure before installing any other cards.

Complete the following procedures for non-DWDM (Software Release 4.1 and earlier) nodes only:

2. D16 Install the STM-N Cards—Complete this procedure as needed.

3. D249 Install the Transponder and Muxponder Cards—Complete this procedure as needed.

4. D17 Install the Electrical Cards—Complete this procedure as needed.

5. D18 Install Ethernet Cards and Connectors—Complete this procedure as needed.

6. D19 Install Fiber-Optic Cables on STM-N Cards—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.

Go to Chapter 5, "Turn Up a DWDM Node" before completing any of the following DWDM-only (Software R4.5) procedures:

7. D242 Install the DWDM Cards—Complete as needed.

8. D243 Install the DWDM Dispersion Compensating Cards—Complete as needed.

9. D244 Install Fiber-Optic Cables on DWDM Cards—Complete as needed.

Complete the following procedures as needed for all nodes (Software R4.5 and earlier):

10. D227 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.

11. D115 Preprovision a Slot—Complete this procedure as needed to provision an empty card slot with a card that will be installed later.

12. D245 Route Fiber-Optic Cables—Complete as needed.

13. D20 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.

NTP-D15 Install the Common Control Cards

Purpose

This procedure describes how to install the common control cards.

Tools/Equipment

Redundant TCC2 cards

Redundant XC10G, XCVXL 10G, or XCVXL 2.5G (cross-connect) cards

AIC-I card

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.



Note The XCVXL 2.5 and XCVXL 10G cross-connect cards are not compatible with Release 4.5 cards.


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.

Figure 2-1 Installing Cards in the ONS 15454 SDH


Step 1 If you plan to install XCVXL 2.5G cards, review Table 2-1 to determine card/slot compatibility. If you plan to install XC10G or XCVXL 10G cards, review Table 2-2 to determine card/slot compatibility.

Step 2 Complete the "DLP-D332 Install the TCC2 Cards" task.

Step 3 If you will not be installing DWDM cards, complete the "DLP-D333 Install the XC10G, XCVXL 10G, or XCVXL 2.5G Cards" task. If you are installing a DWDM shelf, omit this step and continue with Step 4.


Note If you discover that you installed the wrong card in a slot, see the "D227 Remove and Replace a Card" procedure.


Step 4 Complete the "DLP-D334 Install the Alarm Interface Controller-International Card" task, if necessary.

Step 5 If you discover that you installed the wrong card in a slot, see the "D227 Remove and Replace a Card" procedure.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.


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

None

Required/As Needed

Redundant TCC2 cards are required in all nodes.

Onsite/Remote

Onsite

Security Level

None



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



Note DWDM nodes may only be configured with TCC2 cards.



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 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 illuminates 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.


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.

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 the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Software Upgrade Guide or the "NTP-D163 Restore the Node to Factory Configuration" procedure on page 17-12 to replace the software. To exchange the TCC2, see the "D227 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 of the redundant 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 for about 10 seconds.

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

The red FAIL LED blinks for about 10 seconds.

The red FAIL LED illuminates 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.)


Tip If you install a standby TCC2 card that has a different software version than the active TCC2 card, the newly installed standby TCC2 card automatically copies the software version from 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 a standby TCC2 card is first inserted, the LEDs follow most of the sequence listed in Figure 2-1Step 11. After the red FAIL LED turns on for about 5 seconds, the FAIL LED and the ACT/STBY LED begin to flash alternately for up to 30 minutes while the new software loads onto the active TCC2 card. After loading the new software the upgraded TCC2 card's LEDs repeat the sequence from Step 11, and the amber ACT/STBY LED turns on.



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).


DLP-D333 Install the XC10G, XCVXL 10G, or XCVXL 2.5G Cards

Purpose

This task installs the XC10G, XCVXL 10G, or XCVXL 2.5G cards. Do not install cross-connect cards in a DWDM (Software R4.5) node.

Tools/Equipment

XC10G, XCVXL 10G, or XCVXL 2.5 G (cross-connect) cards

Prerequisite Procedures

D332 Install the TCC2 Cards

Required/As Needed

Redundant cross-connect cards are required in non-DWDM shelves.

Onsite/Remote

Note This is not the procedure to use when upgrading from XC10G to XCVXL 10G cards or from XC10G to XCVXL 2.5G cards. If you are performing an XC10G to XCVXL 10G upgrade or an XC10G to XCVXL 2.5G upgrade, see Chapter 14, "Upgrade Cards and Spans."



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



Caution You cannot upgrade from XC10G to XCVXL 2.5G if any STM-64 card is preprovisioned or existed in the node. The XCVXL 2.5G cross-connect card only works up to STM-16.


Step 1 Open the latches/ejectors of the first XC10G, XCVXL 10G, or XCVXL 2.5G 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 8 or 10).

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.


Step 4 Verify the LED activity:

The red LED turns on for 20 to 30 seconds.

The red LED blinks for 35 to 45 seconds.

The red LED remains illuminated for 5 to 10 seconds.

All LEDs blink once and turn on.

The ACT/STBY LED turns on.


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

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 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.



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 STM-64 card before installing an STM-12 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 illuminates 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.

Warning Class 1M Laser Product.



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.



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.



Note The automatic node setup (ANS) of the ONS 15454 SDH DWDM system begins to determine what kind of site you are installing as soon as you install cards. For more information about node setup, see Chapter 5, "Turn Up a DWDM Node." The automatic power control (APC) is enabled after ANS initializes and after a channel has been provisioned. For instructions to provision a DWDM channel, see the "NTP-D260 Provision a DWDM Optical Channel Network Connection" procedure on page 8-99. For more information about amplifier power control, see the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual.



Step 1 Plan your node installation or consult the site plan. As soon as you begin installing cards, ANS determines what kind of site to set up based on the following parameters:

Hub site—Two 32DMX-O and two 32MUX-O cards are provisioned but no AD-xC or AD-xB cards are present

Terminal—One 32DMX-O and one 32MUX-O card are provisioned, and no AD-xC or AD-xB cards are present

Line site—Only one OPT-PRE or OPT-BST is provisioned per line direction. (Up to two OPT-PRE and/or two OPT-BST cards can be present in the same shelf.)

OADM site—At least 1 AD-xC or AD-xB is provisioned and no 32DMX-O or 32MUX-O cards are present

Unknown—Provisioned cards do not follow any of the previously listed categories

Step 2 Open the card latches/ejectors.

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

Step 4 Use the following card placement guidelines. For specific information about each card, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual.

OPT-BST cards can be installed in any open east and west pair of slots but are often installed in Slot 1 and Slot 17.

OPT-PRE cards can be installed in any open east and west pair of slots but are often installed in Slot 2 and Slot 16.

OSCM cards, if used, are installed in Slot 8 and Slot 10.

OSC-CSM cards, if used (when there is no OPT-BST), can be installed in any open east and west pair of slots.

32MUX-O cards are double-slot width cards and are often installed in Slot 3-4 and Slot 14-15.

32DMX-O cards are double-slot width and are often installed in Slot 5-6 and Slot 12-13.

AD cards (channel or band) and 4MD-xx.x combiner cards are installed in any open slots.

Step 5 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 6 Verify the LED activity:

The FAIL LED illuminates for approximately 35 seconds

The FAIL LED blinks for approximately 40 seconds

All LEDs illuminate and then turn off within 5 seconds

If new software is being downloaded to the card, the ACT and SF LEDs blink for 20 seconds to 3.5 minutes, depending on the card type

The ACT LED illuminates

The signal fail (SF) LED stays illuminated until all card ports connect to their far-end counterparts and a signal is present

Step 7 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 a DWDM 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 through 6.

Step 8 If you installed OPT-PRE cards, complete the "D243 Install the DWDM Dispersion Compensating Cards" procedure.

Step 9 Complete the "D244 Install Fiber-Optic Cables on DWDM Cards" procedure.

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 STM-N 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).



Warning Follow all directions and warning labels when working with optical fibers. To prevent eye damage, never look directly into a fiber or connector.



Caution Do not use fiber loopbacks with the STM64 LH 1550 or STM64 LH ITU 15xx.xx card unless you are using a 20-dB attentuator. Never connect a direct fiber loopback. Using fiber loopbacks causes irreparable damage to the STM64 LH 1550 or STM64 LH ITU 15xx.xx card.


Caution Do not use fiber loopbacks with the STM64 SH 1550 card unless you are using a 5-dB attentuator. Never connect a direct, unattenuated fiber loopback. Using unattenuated fiber loopbacks causes irreparable damage to the STM64 SH 1550 card.


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 You can install the fiber immediately after installing the cards, or wait until you are ready to turn up the network. See Chapter 6, "Turn Up Network."

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 2-3 shows the cable location.

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.



Caution Do not provision the SNCP east and west ports on the same STM-N card.


Step 1 Plan your fiber connections. Use the same plan for all SNCP nodes.

Step 2 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 (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.

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.



Step 1 Refer to your site plan when cabling the node. Connect fiber optic cabling for the OSC by consulting the following rules:

The OPT-BST and the OSC-CSM are the only cards that directly interface with the line (span) fiber.

The OSCM only carries supervision channels, not DWDM channels.

The OSCM and the OSC-CSM cannot both be used on the same side of the NE (such as both being on the west side). You can have different cards on each side, for example an OSCM on the west side and an OSC-CSM on the east side.

When an OPT-BST and an OSC-CSM are both used on the same side of an NE, the OPT-BST combines the supervision channel with the DWDM channels and the OSC-CSM acts as an OSCM; it does not carry DWDM traffic.

When an OPT-BST and an OSC-CSM are used on opposite sides of the NE, the supervision channel does not require any additional connection.

The East OPT-BST OSC Rx port is connected to East OSCM Tx port.

The East OPT-BST OSC Tx port is connected to East OSCM Rx port.

The East OPT-BST OSC Rx port is connected to East OSC-CSM Line Tx port.

The East OPT-BST OSC Tx port is connected to East OSC-CSM Line Rx port.

The West OPT-BST OSC Tx port is connected to West OSCM Rx port.

The West OPT-BST OSC Rx port is connected to West OSCM Tx port.

The West OPT-BST OSC-Tx port is connected to West OSC-CSM Line Rx port.

The West OPT-BST OSC-Rx port is connected to West OSC-CSM Line Tx port.

Step 2 Plug the fiber into the West Line transmit (Rx) connector of an OPT-BST (or OSC-CSM) card and into the adjacent node East OPT-BST or OSC-CSM Line Tx connector; and then repeat in the other direction (east to west, Rx to Tx). Ensure you are connecting the West Line ports to the adjacent node East Line ports.


Note The card displays an 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 connected the nodes according to the site plan.

Step 4 At the West side of the first node, plug one end of a fiber cable into the West OPT-BST OSC Rx connector and the other end into West OSCM Tx connector. Repeat the cabling from the West OSCM Rx to the OPT-BST OSC Tx.


Note An OSC-CSM card takes the place of an OPT-BST and OSCM card for that side of the node and does not require OSC cabling.


Step 5 At the East side of the first node, plug one end of a fiber cable into the East OPT-BST OSC Rx connector and the other end into East OSCM Tx connector. Repeat the cabling from the East OSCM Rx to the OPT-BST OSC Tx.

Step 6 Repeat Steps 4 and 5 at each node.

Step 7 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

Step 1 Refer to your site plan when cabling the node. Connect fiber optic cabling for the terminal site by consulting the following rules:

A terminal site has only one side (as compared to a hub node, which has two sides).

The port line direction is not significant.

The OPT-BST and OPT-PRE cards are not mandatory.

The OSC-CSM or OPT-BST Tx port is connected to the OPT-PRE COM Rx port.

The OPT-PRE COM Tx port is connected to the 32DMX-O COM Rx port.

The 32MUX-O Tx port is connected to the OSC-CSM or OPT-BST COM Rx port.

Step 2 Plug one fiber cable end into the desired Rx port and other end into the desired Tx port.


Note The card displays an 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 connected the nodes according to the site plan.

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.



Step 1 Refer to your site plan when cabling the node. Connect fiber optic cabling for the hub node by consulting the following rules:

The West OPT-BST or OSC-CSM card common (COM) Tx port is connected to the West OPT-PRE COM Rx port.

The West OPT-PRE COM Tx port is connected to the West 32DMX-O COM Rx port.

West 32MUX-O COM Tx port is connected to the West OPT-BST or OSC-CSM COM Rx port

The East 32MUX-O COM Tx port is connected to the East OPT-BST or OSC-CSM COM Rx port.

The East OPT-BST or OSC-CSM COM Tx port is connected to the OPT-PRE COM Rx port.

The East OPT-PRE COM Tx port is connected to the 32DMX-O COM Rx port.

Step 2 Plug one fiber cable end into the desired Rx port and other end into the desired Tx port.


Note The card displays an 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 connected the nodes according to the site plan.

Step 4 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).


DLP-D13 Install Fiber-Optic Cables for a Line Amplifier Node

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.



Step 1 Refer to your site plan when cabling the node. Connect fiber optic cabling for the line amplifier node by consulting the following rules:

Line amplifier node layout allows all combinations of OPT-PRE and OPT-BST and allows you to use asymmetrical card choices in west-to-east and east-to-west configurations. For a given line direction, you can configure the four following possibilities:

Only preamplification

Only booster amplification

Both pre- and booster amplification

Neither pre- nor booster amplification

If an OPT-PRE card is present west-to-east:

The West OSC-CSM or OPT-BST COM Tx is connected to the West OPT-PRE COM Tx port

The West OPT-PRE COM Tx port is connected to the East OSC-CSM COM Rx port

If an OPT-PRE card is not present west-to-east, the West OSC-CSM or OPT-BST COM Tx port is connected to the East OSC-CSM or OPT-BST COM Rx port.

If an OPT-PRE card is present east-to-west:

The East OSC-CSM or OPT-BST COM Tx port is connected to the East OPT-PRE COM Rx port.

The East OPT-PRE COM Tx port is connected to the West OSC-CSM or OPT-BST COM Rx port.

If an OPT-PRE card is not present east-to-west, the East OSC-CSM or OPT-BST COM Tx port is connected to the West OSC-CSM or OPT-BST COM Rx port.

Step 2 Plug one fiber cable end into the desired Rx port and other end into the desired Tx port.


Note The card displays an 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 connected the nodes according to the site plan.

Step 4 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).


DLP-D15 Install Fiber-Optic Cables for an Amplified or Passive OADM Node

Purpose

This task gives instructions, rules, and examples to install fiber-optic cables on an amplified or passive optical add/drop multiplexing (OADM) node in a DWDM shelf. See Chapter 7, "Turn Up DWDM Network" to provision and test DWDM configurations.

Note Amplified OADM nodes contain OPT-PRE cards and OPT-BST cards. Passive OADM nodes do not. Both contain add/drop channel or band cards and/or 32MUX-O and 32DMX-O cards.



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.



Step 1 Refer to your site plan when cabling the node. Connect fiber optic cabling for amplified or passive OADM nodes by consulting the following rules:

The two sides of the OADM node do not need to be symmetrical. On each side, you can create one of the following four configurations:

OPT-BST and OPT-PRE

OSC-CSM and OPT-PRE

Only OSC-CSM

Only OPT-BST

Regardless of direction, the TCC2 supervision always assumes the AD-xC or AD-xB COM Rx port and COM Tx ports are connected.

Step 2 Consult the following rules for OADM node express path cabled connections:

The TCC2 checks and guarantees that the AD-xB or AD-xC port sequence on the west line side is the same as the AD-xC or AD-xB port sequence on the East side.

Regardless of direction, the TCC2 supervision always assumes that the AD-xC or AD-xB EXP-Rx and EXP-Tx port are connected.

When you set a connection between an AD-xC or AD-xB 1 EXP Tx port and an AD-xC or AD-xB 2 COM Rx port, the TCC2 automatically assumes the same connection between the other AD-xC or AD-xB 1 EXP Rx port and AD-xC or AD-xC 2 COM Tx port.

Tx ports should only be connected to Rx ports.

EXP ports are connected only to COM ports in between AD-xC or AD-xB cards that all belong to the east side (that is, they are daisy-chained).

EXP ports are connected only to COM ports in between AD-xC or AD-xB cards that belong to the West side.

The EXP port of the last AD-xC or AD-xB card in the west side is connected to the EXP port of the first AD-xC or AD-xB card in the east side.

The OPT-BST COM Rx port is connected to the nearest (in slot position) AD-xC or AD-xB COM Tx port.

The OPT-PRE COM Tx port is connected to the nearest (in slot position) AD-xC or AD-xB COM Tx port.

If OADM cards are located in adjacent slots, the TCC2 assumes they are connected in a daisy-chain between the EXP ports and COM ports as noted above.

The first west AD-xC or AD-xB card COM Rx port is connected to the west OPT-PRE or OSC-CSM COM Tx port.

The first west AD-xC or AD-xB card COM Tx port is connected to the west OPT-BST or OPT-CSM COM Rx port.

The last east AD-xC or AD-xB card COM Rx port is connected to the east OPT-PRE or OSC-CSM COM Tx port.

The last east AD-xC or AD-xB COM Tx port is connected to the east OPT-BST or OSC-CSM Rx port.

If a west OPT-PRE is present, the west OPT-BST or OSC-CSM is connected to the west OPT-PRE COM Rx port.

If an east OPT-PRE is present, the east OPT-BST or OSC-CSM is connected to the east OPT-PRE COM Rx port.

Step 3 Consult the following rules for OADM node add/drop path cabled connections:

AD-xB add/drop (Rx or Tx) ports are only connected to the following ports:

4MD COM Tx or 4MD COM Rx ports

another AD-xB add/drop port (a pass-through configuration)

An AD-xB add/drop band port is only connected to a 4MD card belonging to the same band.

For each specific AD-xB, the add and drop ports for that band card are connected to the COM Tx and COM Rx ports of the same 4MD card.

The AD-xB and 4MD card are located in the same direction side (the connected ports will all have the same line direction).

Step 4 Consult the following rules for OADM node pass-through path cabled connections:

Pass-through connections are only established between add and drop ports on the same band or channel and same line direction.

Only connect AD-xC or AD-xB channel add/drop ports to other AD-xC or AD-xB add/drop ports (as pass-through configurations).

An add (Rx) port is only connected to a drop (Tx) port.

Only connect 4MD client input/output ports to other 4bMD input/outputs.

Only connect a 32DMX output port to a 32MUX-O input port.

Add (Rx) ports are connected to drop (Tx) ports.

A West AD-xB drop (Tx) port is connected to the corresponding west 4MD COM Rx port.

A West AD-xB add (Rx) port is connected to the corresponding west 4MD COM Tx port.

an East AD-xB drop (Tx) port is connected to the corresponding east 4MD COM Rx port.

An East AD-xB add (Rx) port is connected to the corresponding east 4MD COM Tx port.

Step 5 Plug one fiber cable end into the desired Rx port and other end into the desired Tx port.


Note The card displays an 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 6 Repeat Step 5 until you have connected the nodes according to the site plan.

Step 7 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).
