3.7  DS3-12E and DS3N-12E Cards

The ONS 15454 DS3-12E card provides 12 Telcordiacompliant GR-499 DS-3 ports per card. Each port operates at 44.736 Mbps over a single 75 ohm 728A or equivalent coaxial span. The DS3-12E card provides enhanced performance monitoring functions. The DS3-12E can detect several different errored logic bits within a DS3 frame. This function allows the ONS 15454 to identify a degrading DS3 facility caused by upstream electronics (DS3 Framer). In addition, DS3 frame format autodetection and J1 path trace are supported. By monitoring additional overhead in the DS3 frame, subtle network degradations can be detected.

The following list summarizes DS3-12E card features:

Provisionable framing format M23, C-bit or unframed

Autorecognition and provisioning of incoming framing

P-bit monitoring

C-bit parity monitoring

X-bit monitoring

M-bit monitoring

F-bit monitoring

FEBE monitoring

FEAC status and loop code detection

Path trace byte support with TIM-P alarm generation

The DS3-12E supports a 1:1 protection scheme, meaning it can operate as the protect card for one other DS3-12E card.

The DS3N-12E can operate as the protect card in a 1:N (N <= 5) DS3 protection group. It has additional circuitry not present on the basic DS3-12E card that allows it to protect up to five working DS3-12E cards. The basic DS3-12E card can only function as the protect card for one other DS3-12E card.

3.7.1  DS3-12E and DS3N-12E Slots and Connectors

You can install the DS3-12E and DS3N-12E cards in Slots 1 to 6 or 12 to 17 on the ONS 15454. Each DS3-12E and DS3N-12E port features DSX-level outputs supporting distances up to 137 meters (450 feet). With the proper backplane EIA, the card supports BNC or SMB connectors. See "7.2  Electrical Card Protection and the Backplane" section on page 7-4 for more information about electrical card slot protection and restrictions.
