Ethernet Cards


The Cisco ONS 15454 integrates Ethernet into a SONET platform through the use of Ethernet cards. This chapter describes the E-Series, G-Series, and ML-Series Ethernet cards. For G-Series and E-Series Ethernet application information, see Chapter 16, "Ethernet Operation." For installation and card turn-up procedures, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide. For ML-Series configuration information, see the Cisco ONS 15454 SONET/SDH ML-Series Multilayer Ethernet Card Software Feature and Configuration Guide.


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.

5.1.4  Ethernet Clocking Versus SONET/SDH Clocking

Ethernet clocking is asynchronous. IEEE 802.3 clock tolerance allows some links in a network to be as much as 200 ppm (parts or bits per million) slower than other links (0.02%). A traffic stream sourced at line rate on one link may traverse other links which are 0.02% slower. A fast source clock, or slow intermediate clocks, may limit the end-to-end thoughput to only 99.98% of the source link rate.

Traditionally, Ethernet is a shared media that is under utilized except for brief bursts which may combine from multiple devices to exceed line-rate at an aggegration point. Due to this utilization model, the asynchronous clocking of Ethernet has been acceptable. Some Service Providers accustomed to loss-less TDM transport may find the 99.98% throughput guarantee of Ethernet surprising.

Clocking enhancements of ML-Series and G-Series cards ensure Ethernet transmit rates that are at worst 50 ppm slower than the fastest compliant source clock, ensuring a worst-case clocking loss of 50 ppm - a 99.995% throughput guarantee. In many cases, the ML-Series or G-Series clock will be faster than the source traffic clock, and line-rate traffic transport will have zero loss. Actual results will depend on clock variation of the traffic source transmitter.

5.2  E100T-12 Card

The ONS 15454 uses E100T-12 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-12 Faceplate and Block Diagram

The E100T-12 Ethernet card provides high-throughput, low-latency packet switching of Ethernet traffic across a SONET network while providing a greater degree of reliability through SONET 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 time-division multiplexing (TDM) traffic with packet-switched data traffic.

Each E100T-12 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  Slot Compatibility

You can install the E100T-12 card in Slots 1 to 6 and 12 to 17. Multiple E-Series Ethernet cards installed in an ONS 15454 can act independently or as a single Ethernet switch. You can create logical SONET ports by provisioning STS channels to the packet switch entity within the ONS 15454. Logical ports can be created with a bandwidth granularity of STS-1. The E100T-12 supports STS-1, STS-3c, STS-6c, and STS-12c circuit sizes.


Note When making an STS-12c Ethernet circuit, the E-Series cards must be configured as single-card EtherSwitch.


5.2.2  E100T-12 Card-Level Indicators

The G1000-4 card requires the XC10G card. The ONS 15454 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 OC-48 on each card.

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

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

Figure 5-5 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 2 or Layer 3 protocols) across a SONET 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 switch ring [BLSR]). Full provisioning support is possible via Cisco Transport Controller (CTC), Transaction Language One (TL1), or Cisco Transport Manager (CTM).

The circuit sizes supported are STS-1, STS-3c, STS-6c, STS-9c, STS-12c, STS-24c, and STS-48c.

5.6.1  STS-24c Restriction

Due to hardware constraints, the card imposes an additional restriction on the combinations of circuits that can be dropped onto a G-Series card. These restrictions are transparently enforced by the ONS 15454, and you do not need to keep track of restricted circuit combinations.

When a single STS-24c terminates on a card, the remaining circuits on that card can be another single STS-24c or any combination of circuits of STS-12c size or less that add up to no more than 12 STSs (that is a total of 36 STSs on the card).

If STS-24c circuits are not being dropped on the card, the full 48 STSs bandwidth can be used with no restrictions (for example, using either a single STS-48c or 4 STS-12c circuits).


Note The STS-24c restriction only applies when a single STS-24c circuit is dropped; therefore, you can easily minimize the impact of this restriction. Group the STS-24c circuits together on a card separate from circuits of other sizes. The grouped circuits can be dropped on other G-Series cards on the ONS 15454.


5.6.2  G1000-4 Card-Level Indicators

The G1000-4 card faceplate has two card-level LED indicators, described in Table 5-12.

Table 5-12 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 is turned on, and 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.


5.6.3  G1000-4 Port-Level Indicators

The G1000-4 card has one bicolor LED per port. Table 5-13 describes the status that each color represents.

Table 5-13 G1000-4 Port-Level Indicators  

Port-Level LED Status
Description

Off

No link exists to the Ethernet port.

Steady amber

A link exists to the Ethernet port, but traffic flow is inhibited. For example, an unconfigured circuit, an error on line, or a nonenabled port might inhibit traffic flow.

Solid green

A link exists to the Ethernet port, but no traffic is carried on the port.

Flashing green

A link exists to the Ethernet port, and traffic is carried on the port. The LED flash rate reflects the traffic rate for the port.


5.6.4  G1000-4 Compatibility

The G1000-4 card requires Cisco ONS 15454 Release 3.2 or later system software and the XC10G cross-connect card. You can install the card in Slots 1 to 6 and 12 to 17, for a total shelf capacity of 48 Gigabit Ethernet ports. The practical G1000-4 port per shelf limit is 40, because at least two slots are typically filled by OC-N trunk cards such as the OC-192.

5.6.5  G1000-4 Card Specifications

The G1000-4 card has the following specifications:

Environmental

Operating temperature:

C-Temp (15454-G1000-4): 0 to +55 degrees Celsius (32 to 131 degrees Fahrenheit)

Operating humidity: 5 to 95%, noncondensing

Power consumption: 63.00 W, 1.31 A, 215.11 BTU/hr

Dimensions

Height: 321.3 mm (12.650 in.)

Width: 18.2 mm (0.716 in.)

Depth: 228.6 mm (9.000 in.)

Card weight: 0.9 kg (2.1 lb)

5.7  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 5-6 shows the card faceplate and the block diagram of the card.


Warning Class 1 laser product.


Figure 5-6 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 2 or Layer 3 protocols) across a SONET network while providing a greater degree of reliability through SONET 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 by full provisioning and manageability, as in SONET service. Full provisioning support is possible via CTC or CTM. Each G1K-4 card performs independently of the other cards in the same shelf.

5.7.1  STS-24c Restriction

Due to hardware constraints, the card imposes an additional restriction on the combinations of circuits that can be dropped onto a G-Series card. These restrictions are transparently enforced by the ONS 15454, and you do not need to keep track of restricted circuit combinations.

When a single STS-24c terminates on a card, the remaining circuits on that card can be another single STS-24c or any combination of circuits of STS-12c size or less that add up to no more than 12 STSs (that is a total of 36 STSs on the card).

If STS-24c circuits are not being dropped on the card, the full 48 STSs bandwidth can be used with no restrictions (for example, using either a single STS-48c or 4 STS-12c circuits).


Note The STS-24c restriction only applies when a single STS-24c circuit is dropped; therefore, you can easily minimize the impact of this restriction. Group the STS-24c circuits together on a card separate from circuits of other sizes. The grouped circuits can be dropped on other G-Series cards on the ONS 15454.


5.7.2  G1K-4 Compatibility

When installed in ONS 15454s running software prior to Software Release 4.0, the G1K-4 cards require the XC10G card to operate. 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 OC-192).

However, when installed on an ONS 15454 running Software R4.0 and later, the G1K-4 card is not limited to installation in ONS 15454s with XC10G cards but can also be installed in ONS 15454s with XC and XCVT cards. When used with XC and XCVT cards on an ONS 15454 running Release 4.0 and later, the G1K-4 is limited to the high-speed slots (Slots 5, 6, 12, and 13).

5.7.3  G1K-4 Card-Level Indicators

The G1K-4 card faceplate has two card-level LED indicators, described in Table 5-14.

Table 5-14 G1K-4 Card-Level Indicators

The red FAIL LED indicates that the card's processor is not ready or that a catastrophic software failure occurred on the G1K-4 card. As part of the boot sequence, the FAIL LED is turned on, and it goes off when 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 G1K-4. If the ACT LED is green, it indicates that the G1K-4 card is active and the software is operational.


5.7.4  G1K-4 Port-Level Indicators

The G1K-4 card has four bicolor LEDs (one LED per port). Table 5-15 describes the status that each color represents.

Table 5-15 G1K-4 Port-Level Indicators

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.


5.10.1  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 in 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 "GBICs and SFPs" 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 Common Language Equipment Identification (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.



Caution Operating temperature of the DWDM GBICs is -5 degrees C to 40 degrees C (23 degrees F to 104 degrees F).

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 15454 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 5-20).

5.10.1.1  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, for 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 5-9). Follow your site plan or network diagram for the required wavelengths.

Figure 5-9 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.

5.10.1.2  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 5-10). It can be used in short-haul and long-haul applications.

Figure 5-10 G-Series with CWDM/DWDM GBICs in Cable Network
