Step 1 In node view, double-click the EC-1 card where you want to change the line or threshold settings.

Step 2 Click the Provisioning tab.

Step 3 Depending on the setting you need to modify, click the Line, Thresholds, or STS subtab.


Note See "Manage Alarms" for information about the Alarm Behavior tab.


Step 4 Modify any of the settings found under these subtabs. For definitions of the Line settings, see Table 13-16. For definitions of the threshold settings, see Table 13-17.

Step 5 Click Apply.

Step 6 Repeat Steps 3 through 5 for each subtab that has parameters you want to provision.


Note The STS subtab is used to provision intermediate path performance monitoring (IPPM). To provision IPPM, circuits must be provisioned on the EC1-12 card. For circuit creation procedures, go to Chapter 8, "Create Circuits and VT Tunnels." To provision IPPM, go to the "DLP-A121 Enable/Disable Pointer Justification Count Performance Monitoring" task on page 10-19.

Note This procedure assumes DS1-14 cards are installed in Slots 1 through 6 and/or Slots 12 through 17. The DS1-14 cards in Slots 3 and 15, which are the protection slots, will be replaced with DS1N-14 cards. The ONS 15454 must run CTC Release 2.0 or later. The procedure also requires at least one DS1N-14 card.



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 DS1N-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 (shown in ) and not Protect/Active. If the protect slot status is Protect/Active, 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 Click the Alarms tab to verify that no standing alarms exist for any of the DS1-14 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 - 9 for other DS-1 1:1 protection groups that you want to include in a 1:N group.

Step 11 Physically remove the DS1-14 card from Slot 3 or Slot 15. This raises an improper removal alarm.

Step 12 In node view, right-click the slot that held the removed card and select Delete from the drop-down menu. Wait for the card to disappear from node view.

Step 13 Physically insert a DS1N-14 card into the same slot.

Step 14 Verify that the card boots up properly.

Step 15 Click the Inventory tab and verify that the new card appears as a DS1N-14.

Step 16 Click the Provisioning > Protection tabs.

Step 17 Click Create.

Step 18 Type a name for the protection group in the Name field (optional).

Step 19 From the Type drop-down menu, choose 1:N (card).

Step 20 From the Protect Card drop-down menu, choose the DS1N-14 card. Verify that the correct DS1N-14 card appears in the Protect Card field.

Step 21 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 22 If necessary, set a new reversion time in the Reversion time drop-down menu.


Note 1:N protection groups are always revertive.


Step 23 Click OK. The protection group appears in the Protection Groups list on the Protection subtab.

Step 24 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).
