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.


The Cisco ONS 15454 SDH integrates Ethernet into a SDH time-division multiplexing (TDM) platform. This chapter describes the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH E-Series Ethernet cards, the G-Series Ethernet cards, and ML-Series Ethernet cards. It includes descriptions, hardware specifications, and block diagrams for each card. For G-Series and E-Series Ethernet application information, see "Ethernet Operation."

5.2  E100T-G Card

The ONS 15454 SDH uses E100T-G cards for Ethernet (10 Mbps) and Fast Ethernet (100 Mbps). Each card provides 12 switched, IEEE 802.3-compliant, 10/100BaseT Ethernet ports that can independently detect the speed of an attached device (autosense) and automatically connect at the appropriate speed. The ports autoconfigure to operate at either half or full duplex and determine whether to enable or disable flow control. You can also configure Ethernet ports manually. Figure 5-1 shows the faceplate and a block diagram of the card.

Figure 5-1 E100T-G Faceplate and Block Diagram

The E100T-G Ethernet card provides high-throughput, low-latency packet switching of Ethernet traffic across a SDH network while providing a greater degree of reliability through SDH self-healing protection services. This Ethernet capability enables network operators to provide multiple 10/100-Mbps access drops for high-capacity customer LAN interconnects, Internet traffic, and cable modem traffic aggregation. It enables the efficient transport and co-existence of traditional TDM traffic with packet-switched data traffic.

Each E100T-G card supports standards-based, wire-speed, Layer 2 Ethernet switching between its Ethernet interfaces. The IEEE 802.1Q tag logically isolates traffic (typically subscribers). IEEE 802.1Q also supports multiple classes of service.

5.2.1  E100T-G Slot Compatibility

You can install the E100T-G card in slots 1 to 6 and 12 to 17. Multiple E-Series Ethernet cards installed in an ONS 15454 SDH can act independently or as a single Ethernet switch. You can create logical SDH ports by provisioning a number of SDH channels to the packet switch entity within the ONS 15454 SDH. Logical ports can be created with a bandwidth granularity of VC-4.

5.2.2  E100T-G Card-Level Indicators

The E100T-G card faceplate has three card-level LED indicators (Table 5-4).

Table 5-4 E100T-G Card-Level Indicators  

Card-Level Indicators
Description

Red FAIL LED

The red FAIL LED indicates that the card's processor is not ready or that a catastrophic software failure occurred on the E100T-G card. As part of the boot sequence, the FAIL LED is turned on until the software deems the card operational.

Green ACT LED

A green ACT LED provides the operational status of the E100T-G. If the ACT LED is green, it indicates that the E100T-G card is active and the software is operational.

5.4  G1000-4 Card

The ONS 15454 SDH uses G1000-4 cards for Gigabit Ethernet (1000 Mbps). The G1000-4 card provides four ports of IEEE-compliant, 1000-Mbps interfaces. Each port supports full-duplex operation for a maximum bandwidth of STM-16 on each card.

The G1000-4 card uses GBIC modular receptacles for the optical interfaces. For details, see the "GBICs and SFPs" section.

Figure 5-3 shows the card faceplate and the block diagram of the card.

Figure 5-3 G1000-4 Faceplate and Block Diagram

The G1000-4 Gigabit Ethernet card provides high-throughput, low latency transport of Ethernet encapsulated traffic (IP and other Layer 3 protocols) across a SDH network. Carrier-class Ethernet transport is achieved by hitless (< 50 ms) performance in the event of any failures or protection switches (such as 1+1 automatic protection switching [APS], path protection, or bidirectional line switched ring [BLSR]). Full provisioning support is possible via Cisco Transport Controller (CTC) or Cisco Transport Manager (CTM). Each G1000-4 card performs independently of the other cards in the same shelf.

5.4.1  G1000-4 Card-Level Indicators

The G1000-4 card faceplate has two card-level LED indicators (Table 5-8).

Table 5-8 G1000-4 Card-Level Indicators  

Card-Level LEDs
Description

FAIL LED (red)

The red FAIL LED indicates that the card's processor is not ready or that a catastrophic software failure occurred on the G1000-4 card. As part of the boot sequence, the FAIL LED turns on; it turns off if the software is deemed operational.

The red FAIL LED blinks when the card is loading software.

ACT LED (green)

A green ACT LED provides the operational status of the G1000-4. If the ACT LED is green, it indicates that the G1000-4 card is active and the software is operational.


5.4.2  G1000-4 Port-Level Indicators

5.5  G1K-4 Card

The G1K-4 card is the functional equivalent of the G1000-4 card and provides four ports of IEEE-compliant, 1000-Mbps interfaces. Each interface supports full-duplex operation for a maximum bandwidth of 1 Gbps or 2 Gbps bidirectional per port, and 2.5 Gbps or 5 Gbps bidirectional per card. Each port autonegotiates for full duplex and IEEE 802.3x flow control. The G1K-4 card uses GBIC modular receptacles for the optical interfaces. For details, see the "GBICs and SFPs" section.

Figure 5-4 shows the card faceplate and the block diagram of the card.


Warning Class 1 laser product.


Figure 5-4 G1K-4 Faceplate and Block Diagram


Warning Invisible laser radiation may be emitted from disconnected fibers or connectors. Do not stare into beams or view directly with optical instruments.


The G1K-4 Gigabit Ethernet card provides high-throughput, low-latency transport of Ethernet encapsulated traffic (IP and other Layer 3 protocols) across a SDH network while providing a greater degree of reliability through SDH self-healing protection services. Carrier-class Ethernet transport is achieved by hitless (< 50 ms) performance in the event of any failures or protection switches (such as 1+1 APS, path protection, BLSR, or optical equipment protection) and full provisioning and manageability, as in SDH service. Full provisioning support is possible via CTC or CTM. Each G1K-4 card performs independently of the other cards in the same shelf.

5.5.1  G1K-4 Compatibility

Software R4.0 and later identifies G1K-4 cards as G1K-4s upon physical installation. Software prior to R4.0 identifies both G1000-4 and G1K-4 cards as G1000-4s upon physical installation.

You can install the G1K-4 card in slots 1 to 6 and 12 to 17, for a total shelf capacity of 48 Gigabit Ethernet ports. (The practical limit is 40 ports because at least two slots are typically populated by optical cards such as the OC-192.)

ML-Series cards feature two SDH virtual ports with a maximum combined bandwidth of VC4-16c. Each port carries an STM circuit with a size of VC3, VC4, VC4-2c, VC4-3c, VC4-4c, and VC4-8c. For step-by-step instructions on configuring an ML-Series card SDH STM circuit, refer to the "Create Circuits and Tunnels" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.

The ML-Series POS ports supports virtual concatenation (VCAT) of SONET/SDH circuits and a software link capacity adjustment scheme (SW-LCAS). The ML-Series card supports a maximum of two VCAT groups with each group corresponding to one of the POS ports. Each VCAT group can contain two circuit members. An ML-Series card supports VC-3-2v, VC-4-2v and VC-4-4c-2v. For step-by-step instructions on configuring an ML-Series card SDH VCAT circuit, refer to the "Create Circuits and Tunnels" chapter of the Cisco ONS  15454  SDH Procedure Guide.

5.7.1  ML1000-2 Card-Level Indicators

The ML1000-2 card faceplate has two card-level LED indicators. The card-level indicators are listed in Table 5-14.

Table 5-14 ML1000-2 Card-Level Indicators  

Card-Level LEDs
Description

FAIL LED (Red)

The red FAIL LED indicates that the card's processor is not ready or that a catastrophic software failure occurred on the ML1000-2 card. As part of the boot sequence, the FAIL LED is turned on until the software deems the card operational.

ACT LED (Green)

A green ACT LED provides the operational status of the ML1000-2. When the ACT LED is green, it indicates that the ML1000-2 card is active and the software is operational.


5.7.2  ML1000-2 Port-Level Indicators

The ML1000-2 card has two LEDs for each of the two Gigabit Ethernet ports. The port-level indicators are described in Table 5-15.

5.8  GBICs and SFPs

The ONS 15454 Ethernet cards use industry standard small form-factor pluggable connectors (SFPs) and gigabit interface converter (GBIC) modular receptacles. The ML-Series Gigabit Ethernet cards use standard Cisco SFPs. The Gigabit E-Series card and the G-Series card use standard Cisco GBICs. With Software Release 4.1 and later, G-Series cards can also be equipped with DWDM and CWDM GBICs to function as Gigabit Ethernet transponders.

For all Ethernet cards, the type of GBIC or SFP plugged into the card is displayed in CTC and TL1. Cisco offers SFPs and GBICs as separate orderable products.

1 When using an LX SFP or LX GBIC with multimode fiber, you must install a mode-conditioning patch cord between the SFP/GBIC and the multimode fiber cable on both the transmit and receive ends of the link. The mode-conditioning patch cord is required for link distances less than 100 m (328 feet) or greater than 300 m (984 feet). The mode-conditioning patch cord prevents overdriving the receiver for short lengths of multimode fiber and reduces differential mode delay for long lengths of multimode fiber.


5.8.1  DWDM and CWDM Gigabit Interface Converters

DWDM and CWDM GBICs operate in the ONS 15454 G-Series card when the card is configured in Gigabit Ethernet Transponding mode or Ethernet over SONET mode. DWDM and CWDM GBICs are both wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) technologies and operate over single-mode fibers with SC connectors. Cisco CWDM GBIC technology uses a 20-nm wavelength grid and Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM GBIC technology uses a 1-nm wavelength grid. CTC displays the specific wavelengths of the installed CWDM or DWDM GBICs. DWDM wavelengths are spaced closer together and require more precise lasers than CWDM. The DWDM spectrum allows for optical signal amplification. For more information on G-Series card transponding mode, see the "G-Series Gigabit Ethernet Transponder Mode" section.

The DWDM and CWDM GBICs receive across the full 1300-nm and 1500-nm bands, which includes all CWDM, DWDM, LX, ZX wavelengths, but transmit on one specified wavelength. This capability can be exploited in some of the G-Series transponding modes by receiving wavelengths that do not match the specific transmission wavelength.


Note G1000-4 cards support CWDM and DWDM GBICs. G1K-4 cards with the CLEI code of WM5IRWPCAA (manufactured after August 2003) support CWDM and DWDM GBICs. G1K-4 cards manufactured prior to August 2003 do not support CWDM or DWDM GBICs.



Note Operating temperature of the DWDM GBICs is -5 degrees C to 40 degrees C.


The ONS 15454 supported CWDM GBICs reach up to 100 to 120 km over single mode fiber and support eight wavelengths:

1470 nm

1490 nm

1510 nm

1530 nm

1550 nm

1570 nm

1590 nm

1610 nm

The ONS 15455 supported DWDM GBICs support 32 different wavelengths in the red and blue bands. Paired with optical amplifiers, such as the Cisco ONS 15216, the DWDM GBICs allow maximum unregenerated spans of approximately 300 km (Table 5-17).

5.8.1.1  Placement of CWDM or DWDM GBICs

CWDM or DWDM GBICs for the G-Series card come in set wavelengths and are not provisionable. The wavelengths are printed on each GBIC, (example, CWDM-GBIC-1490). The user must insert the specific GBIC transmitting the wavelength required to match the input of the CWDM/DWDM device for successful operation (Figure 5-7). Follow your site plan or network diagram for the required wavelengths.

Figure 5-7 CWDM GBIC with Wavelength Appropriate for Fiber-Connected Device

The Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide contains specific procedures for attaching optical fiber to GBICs and inserting GBICs into the G-Series card.

5.8.1.2  Example of CWDM or DWDM GBIC Application

A G-Series card equipped with CWDM or DWDM GBICs supports the delivery of unprotected Gigabit Ethernet service over Metro DWDM and video on demand (VoD) transport networks (Figure 5-8). It can be used in short-haul and long-haul applications.
