TAC Case Priority Definitions

To ensure that all cases are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established case priority definitions.

Priority 1 (P1)—Your network is "down" or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.

Priority 2 (P2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your business operation are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.

Priority 3 (P3)—Operational performance of your network is impaired, but most business operations remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service to satisfactory levels.

Priority 4 (P4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.

5 What is TL1?

Transaction Language 1 (TL1) is a set of ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange)-based instructions, or messages, that an operations support system (OSS) uses to manage a network element (NE) and its resources. TL1 provides a standard set of messages that can be used for communicating between operating systems and NEs, and personnel and NEs.

6 TL1 Message Types and Examples

There are two main types of standards-defined TL1 messages: command/responses and autonomous messages.

1. Command/Responses—These are initiated by a user and provide two parts: a request to the NE to set or get information, and a response from the NE containing completion or status codes and requested information. Request, or input messages are used to issue the request portions of command messages to the NE. Command messages are often referred to as command/response messages, where the request portion is an input message (OSS to NE) and the response portion is an output message (NE to OSS).

a. Set information—The simplest type of messages are those that set information or instruct the NE to perform an action and return only a result with no data in the response:

Example: ENT-CRS-<STS_PATH> to create an STS cross-connection

b. Get information—Some TL1 commands get information or request information be returned from the NE.

Example: RTRV-ALM-ALL to show the current status of all active alarm conditions

c. Response message—The response portion of a command message correlates to a particular request message. If a command is successful, the NE sends a response message containing the COMPLD code.

Example:     
   sv192-DATA-461 2003-08-05 10:35:17
M  123 COMPLD
;

If a command fails, the NE sends an error response which includes the DENY code and may or may not contain an error message.

Example:     
   sv192-DATA-461 2003-08-05 10:35:17
M  123 DENY
;

The following list shows standard responses:

COMPLD—Completed

DENY—TL1 command failed

PRTL—Partially successful response. The requested action can be completed for some of the specified AIDs but not for all of them.

RTRV—The response is successful but is lengthy and is being returned in multiple parts. Each part has a RTRV response code, but the final response has a COMPLD response code.

d. Response acknowledgment—Responses may also include intermediate acknowledgment messages. Brief messages that update the user as to the status of a given command are called acknowledgments. When a command has been sent to the NE and the NE will take longer than two seconds to respond, the NE sends an acknowledgment message to be followed later by the full response. The Cisco ONS 15454 and Cisco ONS 15327 support only the IP response.

Example: IP 123 
          >

The following list shows standard acknowledgment codes:

IP—In progress

2. Autonomous events—These are events, alarmed or otherwise, that are generated by the NE as a result of a condition in the NE, such as an alarm condition, a change in status, or a change in the information in the database.

Example: REPT-ALM

For information on specific command and autonomous message syntax, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 and Cisco ONS 15327 TL1 Command Guide.

7 Connect to TL1

The first step in using TL1 is to connect to TL1. You only have to connect to TL1 one time per session. A session is a related set of communication transactions between two or more network devices. There are three ways to connect to TL1: via CTC, telnet, or craft interface. Perform one of the following procedures to connect to TL1.

Launch CTC and Open a TL1 Session


Step 1 From the PC connected to the ONS 15454/15327, start Netscape or Internet Explorer.

Step 2 Enter the ONS 15454/15327 IP address of the node you want to communicate with in the Netscape or Internet Explorer Web address (URL) field.

Step 3 Log into the CTC. The IP address at the title bar should match the IP address of the node you entered in Step 2.

Step 4 Once logged into the CTC, click Tools > Open TL1 Connection.

Step 5 Choose the node you want to communicate with from the Select Node dialog box.

Step 6 Click OK.

A TL1 interface window opens. There are three sub-windows in the TL1 interface window: Request history, Message log, and TL1 request. Type commands in the TL1 request window. You will see responses in the Message log window. The Request history window allows you to recall previous commands by clicking on them.

Step 7 Verify that the Connect button is selected (grayed out).

Step 8 You are ready to log into TL1. Follow the steps in the "Log Into TL1" section.


Telnet to Open a TL1 Session

To access TL1 commands in a telnet session over a craft interface or a LAN connection (TCC or XTC card front panel or backplane pins) you can choose from several ports. Port number 3082 is a raw TCP/IP port; it will not echo and it will not prompt the user. Port number 3083 is a telnet port that uses the telnet protocol and associated telnet escape sequences. Port number 2361 is supported for backward compatibility with earlier releases and has the same behavior as Port 3083 (telnet port). Use the following procedure with PCs running Windows operating systems.


Note TCC represents the TCC, TCC+, or TCC2 card, as determined by software release.



Step 1 At the DOS prompt, type cmd and press Enter. (The same steps can also be done from a Unix prompt).

Step 2 At the DOS command prompt type:

TELNET <NODE IP ADDRESS OR NODE NAME> <PORT NUMBER> and press Enter.

The Node IP address or Node Name refers to the IP address or Node Name of the node you want to communicate with. Port number is the port (2361, 3082, or 3083) where TL1 commands are understood. If the connection is successful, a screen opens with a prompt.

Step 3 You are ready to log into TL1. Follow the steps in the "Log Into TL1" section.


Note When the semicolon is typed, the command is issued immediately.



Use a Craft Interface to Open a TL1 Session

The TCC and XTC cards have two built-in interface ports for accessing the ONS 15454/15327. With one RJ-45 LAN connection you can access the system using a standard browser interface. In the browser interface, you can perform local and remote Operations, Administration, Maintenance, and Provisioning (OAM&P) functions and open a VT100 emulation window to enter TL1 commands. If a browser is not available, you can access the system using a nine-pin RS-232 port. The RS-232 port supports VT100 emulation such that TL1 commands may be entered directly without a browser.


Step 1 Connect the serial cable to the RS-232 port on the active TCC or XTC card.

Step 2 Configure the terminal emulation software (Hyperterminal):

a. Terminal emulation = vt100

b. Bits per second = 9600

c. Parity = None

d. Stop BITS = 1

e. Flow control = None

Step 3 Press Enter. An angle bracket prompt (>) appears.

Step 4 You are ready to log into TL1. Follow the steps in the "Log Into TL1" section.


Note When the semicolon is typed, the command is issued immediately.



8 Log Into TL1

Once you have connected to TL1, you must log into TL1 in order to issue commands. Logging into TL1 only has to be done once per session.


Step 1 Issue the ACT-USER command:

Input Format:

ACT-USER:[<TID>]:<UID>:<CTAG>::<PID>;

TID is the name of the node you want to access. If you only want to query the node you connected to leave the TID blank

UID is your user ID

CTAG is any non-blank character series that does not have to be unique

PID is your password

Input Example:

ACT-USER::CISCO15:1234::MYPASSWD;

Step 2 Confirm you receive a COMPLD response to indicate the command was completed successfully.

Response Example:

TID001 03-07-22 02:45:12

M 1234 COMPLD

;


9 Command Actions and Categories

When you have connected and logged into a TL1 session, you are ready to begin issuing TL1 commands and autonomous messages. TL1 commands and autonomous messages can be used to accomplish a variety of actions. Determining the correct command or autonomous message you need begins with identifying what action you want to perform. The first part of every command and autonomous message helps identify the action that command or autonomous message performs as shown in Table 1.

To further determine which command or autonomous message you need, identify what category the action applies to (i.e. BLSR, Cross Connections). In the Cisco ONS 15454 and 15327 TL1 Command Guide, commands and autonomous messages are categorized based on the area of the NE that they effect. For example, if you want to create, edit, or delete a cross-connection, you will find the available commands in the Cross Connections category. Table 2 shows some examples of actions, categories, and commands that apply to the Cisco ONS 15454 and Cisco ONS 15327. For a complete list of categories, commands and autonomous messages, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 and 15327 TL1 Command Guide.

CTAG is any non-blank character series that does not have to be unique

MONTYPE is a monitored type. A null value is equivalent to ALL.

MONLEV specifies the discriminating level for the requested monitored parameter. MONLEV is in the format of LEVEL-DIRN where LEVEL is the measured value of the monitored parameter (MONVAL) and DIRN is the type of DIRN. A null value defaults to 1-UP which means it only shows values 1 and higher

LOCN indicates the location. A null value defaults to NEND

DIRN is the direction of PM relative to the entity identified by the AID. DIRN defaults to ALL which means that the command retrieves all the registers irrespective of the PM direction. Values are BTH (both), RCV (receive), and TRMT (transmit)

TMPER is the accumulation time period for the PM information. A null value defaults to 15-MIN

DATE is the beginning date of the PM or storage register period specified in TMPER. DATE is MM-DD where MM (month of year) ranges from 1 to 12 and DD (day of month) ranges from 1 to 31. A null value defaults to the current date.

TIME is the beginning time of day of the PM or storage register period specified in TMPER. TIME is HH-MM where HH (hour of day) ranges from 0 to 23 and MM (minute of hour) ranges from 0 to 59. A null value defaults to the current time (HH-MM).
