NTP-D241 Modify DWDM Node Settings

Purpose

This procedure modifies the network and node settings and provisions the node power levels on ONS 15454 SDH nodes that are provisioned for DWDM. This procedure applies only to DWDM nodes.

Caution DWDM settings are normally not changed at the individual node level. Any change to a DWDM node setting usually requires recalculation of power and attenuation levels at other nodes on the DWDM network. Do not change a DWDM node setting unless you are prepared to modify the settings of other DWDM nodes on the network.


Step 1 Complete the "DLP-D60 Log into CTC" task on page 3-24. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.

Step 2 Perform one of the following tasks as necessary:

D389 Modify DWDM Hub Node Settings

D390 Modify DWDM Terminal Node Settings

D391 Modify DWDM OADM Node Settings

D392 Modify DWDM Line Node Settings

Step 3 Click the Connections tab, then click Calculate Connections.

Step 4 Verify that every connection matches the connections specified by the Cisco MetroPlanner design plan. If a connection is not correct:

a. Delete the connection. See the "DLP-D377 Delete a DWDM Connection" task on page 5-9.

b. Uninstall the fibers from the incorrect slot/unit/port.

c. Connect the fiber to the correct slot/unit/port.

d. Create a new connection. See the "DLP-D378 Create a DWDM Connection" task on page 5-8.

Step 5 Click the Port Status tab. Click Launch ANS.

ANS (Automatic Node Setup) adjusts the values of the variable optical attenuators (VOAs) to equalize the per channel power at the amplifier level.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.

Step 1 Verify that the E1-N-14 and DS-3i-N-12 cards are installed according to the 1:N specifications in the "DLP-D72 Create a 1:N Protection Group" task on page 4-29.

Step 2 In node view, click the Provisioning > Protection tabs.

Step 3 In the Protection Groups area, click the 1:N protection group you want to modify.

Step 4 In the Selected Group area, change any of the following, as needed:

Name—Type the changes to the protection group name. The name can have up to 32 alphanumeric characters.

Available Entities—If cards are available, they will appear here. Use the arrow buttons to move them into the Working Cards column.

Working Entities—Use the arrow buttons to move cards out of the Working Cards column.

Reversion Time—Choose a reversion time from the drop-down menu. The range is 0.5 to 12.0 minutes. The default is 5.0 minutes. This is the amount of time that will elapse before the traffic reverts to the working card. Traffic can revert when conditions causing the switch are cleared.

Provisioning or higher



Step 1 In node view, click the Provisioning > SNMP tabs.

Step 2 Select a trap in the Trap Destinations dialog box.

For a description of SNMP traps, see the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual.

Step 3 Type the SNMP community name in the Community Name field.


Note The community name is a form of authentication and access control. The community name assigned to the ONS 15454 SDH is case-sensitive and must match the community name of the network management system.



Note The default UDP port for SNMP is 162.


Step 4 Set the Trap Version field for either SNMPv1 or SNMPv2.

Refer to your NMS documentation to determine whether to use SNMP v1 or v2.

Step 5 If you want to allow the ONS 15454 SDH SNMP agent to accept SNMP SET requests on certain MIBs, check the Allow SNMP Sets check box. If the box is not checked, SET requests are rejected.

Step 6 If you want to allow the ONS 15454 SDH SNMP agent to serve as a proxy (that is, it relays the traps to an ONS 15454 that is directly connected to SNMP destination), check the Allow SNMP Proxy check box. If the box is not checked, the ONS 15454 will not relay the traps.

Step 7 Click Apply.

Step 8 SNMP settings are now configured. To view SNMP information for each node, highlight the node IP address in the Trap Destinations area of the Trap Destinations screen. Confirm that the changes appear; if not repeat the task.
