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 ) 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 to 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).

Note This procedure assumes that DS3-12 cards are installed in Slots 1 to 6 and/or Slots 12 to 17. The DS3-12 cards in Slots 3 or 15, which are the protection slots, will be replaced with DS3N-12 cards. The ONS 15454 must run CTC Release 2.0 or later. The procedure also requires at least one DS3N-12 card and a protection group with DS3-12 cards.



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

Step 2 Click the protection group containing Slot 3 or Slot 15 (where you will install the DS3N-12 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 as shown , 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 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 Click the Alarms tab to verify that no standing alarms exist for any of the DS3-12 cards 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 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 DS-3 1:1 protection group, repeat Steps 7 through 9 for each group that you want to include in a 1:N group.

Step 11 Physically remove the protect DS3-12 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 choose Delete from the drop-down menu. Wait for the card to disappear from the node view.

Step 13 Physically insert a DS3N-12 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 DS3N-12 card.

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 Click Type and choose 1:N (card) from the drop-down menu.

Step 20 Verify that the DS3N-12 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 Click OK.

Port #

Displays the port number (read-only).

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-A314 Assign a Name to a Port" task on page 8-11.

Status

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

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 power or constant attenuation.

Read only

VOA Power Ref.

Shows the value of the optical output power going to a VOA when constant power mode is active.

Dmux shows the reference value of the desired optical power going to the client. ANS is the only function that can modify this value (using the Pdrop parameter on the Provisioning tab).

Mux show the reference value of the desired per channel optical power. ANS is the only function that can modify this value (using the Port Mux Stage parameter on the Provisioning tab).

Read only

VOA Power Calib.

The user can modify the optical output power to the VOA if necessary. The VOA power calibration offsets the VOA power reference.

Dmux allows you to modify the optical output power to the client if necessary. Mux allows you to modify the output power per channel.

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.

Allows the user to 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.
