Turn Up a Node


This chapter explains how to provision a single Cisco ONS 15454 dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) node and turn it up for service, including node name, date and time, timing references, network attributes such as IP address and default router, users and user security, card installation, and DWDM connections.


Note Procedures in this chapter require that you have a network plan calculated for your DWDM network with Cisco MetroPlanner, Release 2.5. Cisco MetroPlanner is a DWDM planning tool that is available from your Cisco account representative. Cisco MetroPlanner prepares a shelf plan for each network node and calculates the power and attenuation levels for the DWDM cards installed in the node. For information about Cisco MetroPlanner, contact your Cisco account representative. For more information about MetroPlanner, refer to the Cisco MetroPlanner DWDM Installation and Operations Guide, Release 2.5.



Note Unless otherwise specified, "ONS 15454" refers to both ANSI and ETSI shelf assemblies.

Step 1 Complete the "DLP-G46 Log into CTC" task on page 2-25 for the node you will turn up. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.

Step 2 Click the Provisioning > General tabs.

Step 3 Enter the following information in the fields listed:

Node Name—Type a name for the node. For TL1 compliance, names must begin with an alpha character and have no more than 20 alphanumeric (a-z, A-Z, 0-9) characters.


Note To avoid errors when you import the Cisco MetroPlanner configuration file in the "DLP-G74 Import a Cisco MetroPlanner Configuration File" task, the CTC node name and the MetroPlanner site name should be the same or at least easy to identify.


Contact—Type the name of the node contact person and the phone number, up to 255 characters (optional).

Latitude—Enter the node latitude: N (north) or S (south), degrees, and minutes (optional).

Longitude—Enter the node longitude: E (east) or W (west), degrees, and minutes (optional).

CTC uses the latitude and longitude to position ONS 15454 icons on the network view map. To convert a coordinate in degrees to degrees and minutes, multiply the number after the decimal by 60. For example, the latitude 38.250739 converts to 38 degrees, 15 minutes (0.250739 x 60 = 15.0443, rounded to the nearest whole number).

Description—Type a description of the node. The description can be a maximum of 255 characters.

Use NTP/SNTP Server—When checked, CTC uses a Network Time Protocol (NTP) or Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) server to set the date and time of the node.

If you do not use an SNTP or NTP server, complete the Date and Time fields. The ONS 15454 will use these fields for alarm dates and times. (CTC displays all alarms in the login node's time zone for cross network consistency.)


Note Using an NTP or SNTP server ensures that all ONS 15454 network nodes use the same date and time reference. The server synchronizes the node's time after power outages or software upgrades.


If you check the Use NTP/SNTP Server check box, type the IP address of one of the following:

an NTP/SNTP server connected to the ONS 15454

Another ONS 15454 with NTP/SNTP enabled that is connected to the ONS 15454

If you check gateway network element (GNE) for the ONS 15454 proxy server (see "DLP-G56 Provision IP Settings" task), external ONS 15454s must reference the gateway ONS 15454 for NTP/SNTP timing. For more information about the ONS 15454 gateway settings, see Chapter 19, "CTC Connectivity Reference."


Caution If you reference another ONS 15454 for the NTP/SNTP server, make sure the second ONS 15454 references an NTP/SNTP server and not the first ONS 15454 (that is, do not create an NTP/SNTP timing loop by having two ONS 15454s reference each other).

Date—If Use NTP/SNTP Server is not checked, type the current date in the format m/d/yyyy, for example, September 24, 2002 is 9/24/2002.

Time—If Use NTP/SNTP Server is not checked, type the current time in the format hh:mm:ss, for example, 11:24:58. The ONS 15454 uses a 24-hour clock, so 10:00 PM is entered as 22:00:00.

Time Zone—Click the field and choose a city within your time zone from the drop-down list. The menu displays the 80 World Time Zones from -11 through 0 (GMT) to +14. Continental United States time zones are GMT-05:00 (Eastern), GMT-06:00 (Central), GMT-07:00 (Mountain), and GMT-08:00 (Pacific).

Use Daylight Savings Time—Check this check box if the time zone that you chose is using Daylight Savings Time.

Insert AIS-V on STS-1 SD-P—Not used in DWDM networks.

SD-P BER—Not used in DWDM networks.

Step 4 Click Apply.

Step 5 In the confirmation dialog box, click Yes.

Step 6 Review the node information. If you need to make corrections, repeat Steps 3 through 5 to enter the corrections. If the information is correct, continue with the "G25 Set Power Monitor Thresholds" procedure.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.


NTP-G25 Set Power Monitor Thresholds

Purpose

This procedure provisions extreme high, extreme low, and low input battery power thresholds within a -48 volts direct current (VDC) environment. When the thresholds are crossed, the TCC2 generates warning alarms in CTC. For ONS 15454 power specifications, see Appendix B, "Hardware Specifications."

Caution All network changes should be approved by your network (or LAN) administrator.


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

Step 2 Complete the following information in the fields listed:

IP Address—Type the IP address assigned to the ONS 15454 node.

Suppress CTC IP Display—Check this check box if you want to prevent the node IP address from being displayed in CTC to users with Provisioner, Maintenance, or Retrieve security levels. (The IP address suppression is not applied to users with Superuser security level.)

LCD IP Display—Choose one of the following:

Allow Configuration—Displays the node IP address on the LCD and allows users to change the IP settings using the LCD. This option enables the "DLP-G57 Set the IP Address, Default Router, and Network Mask Using the LCD" task.

Display Only—Displays the node IP address on the LCD but does not allow users to change the IP address using the LCD.

Suppress Display—Suppresses the node IP address display on the LCD.

Default Router—If the ONS 15454 must communicate with a device on a network that the ONS 15454 is not directly connected to, the ONS 15454 can forward the packets to the default router. Type the IP address of the router in this field.


Note This field is ignored if the node is not connected to a LAN, or if you enable any of the gateway settings to implement the ONS 15454 proxy server feature.


Forward DHCP Request To—Check this check box to enable DHCP. Also, enter the DHCP server IP address in the Request To field. Unchecked is the default. If you will enable any of the gateway settings to implement the ONS 15454 proxy server features, leave this field blank.


Note If you enable DHCP, computers connected to an ONS 15454 node can obtain temporary IP addresses from an external DHCP server. The ONS 15454 only forwards DHCP requests; it does not act as a DHCP server.


MAC Address—(Display only.) Displays the ONS 15454 IEEE 802 MAC address.

Net/Subnet Mask Length—Type the subnet mask length (decimal number representing the subnet mask length in bits) or click the arrows to adjust the subnet mask length. The subnet mask length is the same for all ONS 15454s in the same subnet.

TCC CORBA (IIOP) Listener Port—Provisions the ONS 15454 IIOP listener port. This listener port enables communication with the ONS 15454 through firewalls. See the "G27 Set Up the ONS 15454 for Firewall Access" procedure for more information.

Gateway Settings—Provides options that enable the ONS 15454 proxy server features. In proxy server networks, the ONS 15454 is either an end network element (ENE), gateway network element (GNE), or proxy-only server. GNEs and ENEs manage their craft Ethernet ports differently. A GNE will connect to an entire intranet or internet through its craft Ethernet port. An ENE will only communicate with the hosts that have connected to it, such as a CTC computer or other ONS 15454 ENE. Provisioning must be consistent for each NE type. For more information, see the "19.2.7  Scenario 7: Provisioning the ONS 15454 Proxy Server" section on page 19-11.

Enable proxy server on port—If checked, the ONS 15454 serves as a proxy for connections between CTC clients and ONS 15454s that are DCC-connected to the proxy ONS 15454. The CTC client establishes connections to data communications channel (DCC)-connected nodes through the proxy node. The CTC client does not require IP connectivity to the DCC-connected nodes, only to the proxy ONS 15454. If Enable proxy server on port is off, the node does not proxy for any CTC clients, although any established proxy connections continue until the CTC client exits. When this box is checked, you can set the node as an ENE or a GNE:

End Network Element (ENE)—If selected, the CTC computer is only visible to the ONS 15454 to which the CTC computer is connected. The computer is not visible to other DCC-connected nodes. In addition, firewall is enabled, which means that the node prevents IP traffic from being routed between the DCC and the LAN port.

Gateway Network Element (GNE)—If selected, the CTC computer is visible to other DCC-connected nodes. The node prevents IP traffic from being routed between the DCC and the LAN port.

Proxy-only—If selected, the ONS 15454 responds to CTC requests with a list of DCC-connected nodes for which the node serves as a proxy. The CTC computer is visible to other DCC-connected nodes. The node does not prevent traffic from being routed between the DCC and LAN port.

Step 3 Click Apply.

Step 4 Click Yes in the confirmation dialog box.

Both TCC2 cards reboot, one at a time. During this time (approximately 5 minutes), the active and standby TCC2 card LEDs go through the cycle shown in Table 3-1. Eventually, a "Lost node connection, switching to network view" message appears.

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

Step 2 Click the Static Routing tab. Click Create.

Step 3 In the Create Static Route dialog box, enter the following:

Destination—Enter the IP address of the computer running CTC. To limit access to one computer, enter the full IP address and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.255. To allow access to all computers on the 192.168.1.0 subnet, enter 192.168.1.0 and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. You can enter a destination of 0.0.0.0 to allow access to all CTC computers that connect to the router.

Mask—Enter a subnet mask. If the destination is a host route (that is, one CTC computer), enter a 32-bit subnet mask (255.255.255.255). If the destination is a subnet, adjust the subnet mask accordingly, for example, 255.255.255.0. If the destination is 0.0.0.0, CTC automatically enters a subnet mask of 0.0.0.0 to provide access to all CTC computers. You cannot change this value.

Next Hop—Enter the IP address of the router port or the node IP address if the CTC computer is connected to the node directly.

Cost—Enter the number of hops between the ONS 15454 and the computer.

DLP-G59 Set Up or Change Open Shortest Path First Protocol

Purpose

This task enables the Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) routing protocol on the ONS 15454. Perform this task if you want to include the ONS 15454 in OSPF-enabled networks.

Tools/Equipment

None

Prerequisite Procedures

DLP-G46 Log into CTC, page 2-25

You will need the OSPF Area ID, Hello and Dead intervals, and authentication key (if OSPF authentication is enabled) provisioned on the router to which the ONS 15454 is connected.

Security Level

Provisioning or higher



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

Step 2 On the top left side of the OSPF pane, complete the following:

DCC/GCC OSPF Area ID Table—In dotted decimal format, enter the number that identifies the ONS 15454s as a unique OSPF area ID. The Area ID can be any number between 000.000.000.000 and 255.255.255.255, but must be unique to the LAN OSPF area.

SDCC Metric—This value is normally unchanged. It sets a cost for sending packets across the Section DCC, which is used by OSPF routers to calculate the shortest path. This value should always be higher than the LAN metric. The default SDCC metric is 100.

LDCC Metric—Sets a cost for sending packets across the Line DCC. This value should always be lower than the SDCC metric. The default LDCC metric is 33. It is usually not changed.

Step 3 In the OSPF on LAN area, complete the following:

OSPF active on LAN—When checked, enables the ONS 15454 OSPF topology to be advertised to OSPF routers on the LAN. Enable this field on ONS 15454s that directly connect to OSPF routers.

LAN Port Area ID—Enter the OSPF area ID (dotted decimal format) for the router port where the ONS 15454 is connected. (This number is different from the DCC/GCC OSPF Area ID.)

Step 4 By default, OSPF is set to No Authentication. If the OSPF router requires authentication, complete the following steps. If not, continue with Step 5.

a. Click the No Authentication button.

b. In the Edit Authentication Key dialog box, complete the following:

Type—Choose Simple Password.

Enter Authentication Key—Enter the password.

Confirm Authentication Key—Enter the same password to confirm it.

c. Click OK.

The authentication button label changes to Simple Password.

Step 5 Provision the OSPF priority and interval settings.

The OSPF priority and interval defaults are ones most commonly used by OSPF routers. Verify that these defaults match the ones used by the OSPF router where the ONS 15454 is connected.

Router Priority—Selects the designated router for a subnet.

Hello Interval (sec)—Sets the number of seconds between OSPF hello packet advertisements sent by OSPF routers. Ten seconds is the default.

Dead Interval—Sets the number of seconds that will pass while an OSPF router's packets are not visible before its neighbors declare the router down. Forty seconds is the default.

Transit Delay (sec)—Indicates the service speed. One second is the default.

Retransmit Interval (sec)—Sets the time that will elapse before a packet is resent. Five seconds is the default.

LAN Metric—Sets a cost for sending packets across the LAN. This value should always be lower than the SDCC metric. Ten is the default.

Step 6 Under OSPF Area Range Table, create an area range table if one is needed:


Note Area range tables consolidate the information that is outside an OSPF area border. One ONS 15454 in the ONS 15454 OSPF area is connected to the OSPF router. An area range table on this node points the router to the other nodes that reside within the ONS 15454 OSPF area.


a. Under OSPF Area Range Table, click Create.

b. In the Create Area Range dialog box, enter the following:

Range Address—Enter the area IP address for the ONS 15454s that reside within the OSPF area. For example, if the ONS 15454 OSPF area includes nodes with IP addresses 10.10.20.100, 10.10.30.150, 10.10.40.200, and 10.10.50.250, the range address would be 10.10.0.0.

Range Area ID—Enter the OSPF area ID for the ONS 15454s. This is either the ID in the DCC OSPF Area ID field or the ID in the Area ID for LAN Port field.

Mask Length—Enter the subnet mask length. In the Range Address example, this is 16.

Advertise—Check if you want to advertise the OSPF range table.

c. Click OK.

Step 7 All OSPF areas must be connected to Area 0. If the ONS 15454 OSPF area is not physically connected to Area 0, use the following steps to create a virtual link table that will provide the disconnected area with a logical path to Area 0:

a. Under OSPF Virtual Link Table, click Create.

b. In the Create Virtual Link dialog box, complete the following fields. OSPF settings must match OSPF settings for the ONS 15454 OSPF area:

Neighbor—The router ID of the Area 0 router.

Transit Delay (sec)—The service speed. One second is the default.

Hello Int (sec)—The number of seconds between OSPF hello packet advertisements sent by OSPF routers. Ten seconds is the default.

Auth Type—If the router where the ONS 15454 is connected uses authentication, choose Simple Password. Otherwise, choose No Authentication.

Retransmit Int (sec)—Sets the time that will elapse before a packet is resent. Five seconds is the default.

Dead Int (sec)—Sets the number of seconds that will pass while an OSPF router's packets are not visible before its neighbors declare the router down. Forty seconds is the default.

c. Click OK.

Step 8 After entering ONS 15454 OSPF area data, click Apply.

If you changed the Area ID, the TCC2 cards reset, one at a time. The reset takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Table 3-1 shows the LED behavior during the TCC2 reset.

Step 9 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

Warning During this procedure, wear grounding wrist straps to avoid damaging the card. Do not directly touch the backplane with your hand or any metal tool due to electrical hazard.



Warning Complies with 21 CFR 1040.10 and 1040.11 except for deviations pursuant to Laser Notice No. 50, dated July 26, 2001.



Warning Class 1M Laser Product.



Warning Invisible laser radiation may be emitted from the end of the unterminated fiber cable or connector. Do not stare into the beam or view directly with optical instruments. Viewing the laser output with certain optical instruments (for example, eye loupes, magnifiers, and microscopes) within a distance of 100 mm may pose an eye hazard. Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than those specified may result in hazardous radiation exposure.



Caution Always use the supplied ESD wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the lower-right outside edge of the shelf assembly.


Note If protective clips are installed on the backplane connectors of the cards, remove the clips before installing the cards.



Note If you install a card incorrectly, the FAIL LED flashes continuously.



Step 1 Display the card installation plan for the node using one of the following sources:

The Cisco MetroPlanner Site Dialog window (Figure 3-8) for the node you are provisioning.

CTC node view with slots preprovisioned based on the Cisco MetroPlanner Site Dialog window.

Written slot plan. The plan must be based on the Cisco MetroPlanner Site Dialog window for your installation.

Step 2 Double check that the card placement fits within the following installation guidelines:

OPT-BST—Any open east and west pair of slots but usually installed in Slots 1 and 17

OPT-PRE—Any open east and west pair of slots but usually installed in Slots 2 and 16

OSCM—Slots 8 and 10

OSC-CSM—Any open east and west pair of slots

32MUX-O, 32DMX-O, 32DMX, 32WSS—Double-slot card; any two open slots.

AD-xB-xx.x, AD-xC-xx.x, and 4MD-xx.x—Any open slots

Step 3 Remove the DWDM card from its packaging, then remove the protective caps from the backplane connectors.

Step 4 Open the card latches/ejectors.

Step 5 Use the latches/ejectors to firmly slide the card along the slot guide rails until the card plugs into the receptacle at the back of the slot.

Step 6 Verify that the card is inserted correctly and close the latches/ejectors on the card.


Note It is possible to close the latches/ejectors when the card is not completely plugged into the backplane. Ensure that you cannot insert the card any further.


Step 7 Verify the LED activity:

The FAIL LED turns on for approximately 35 seconds.

The FAIL LED blinks for approximately 40 seconds.

All LEDs turn on and then turn off within 5 seconds.

If new software is being downloaded to the card, the ACT and SF LEDs blink for 20 seconds to 3.5 minutes, depending on the card type.

The ACT LED turns on.

The signal fail (SF) LED stays on until all card ports connect to their far-end counterparts and a signal is present.

Step 8 If the card does not boot up properly, or the LED activity does not mimic Step 7, check the following:

When a physical card type does not match the type of card provisioned for that slot in CTC, the card might not boot. If a DWDM card does not boot, open CTC and ensure that the slot is not provisioned for a different card type before assuming that the card is faulty.

If the red FAIL LED does not turn on, check the power.

If you insert a card into a slot provisioned for a different card, all LEDs turn off.

If the red FAIL LED is on continuously or the LEDs behave erratically, the card is not installed. Remove the card and repeat Steps 3 to 7. If the card does not boot up properly the second time, it may be defective. Contact your next level of support.


Note The DWDM node type is determined by the cards that are installed. For example, if two 32DMX-O and two 32MUX-O cards are installed but no AD-xC or AD-xB cards are installed, CTC considers the node a hub node. However, if one 32DMX-O and one 32MUX-O card are installed with no AD-xC or AD-xB cards, CTC considers the node a terminal node. For more information, refer to Chapter 14, "Card Reference."


Step 9 Repeat Steps 3 through 8 until all the DWDM cards are installed in the node.

Step 10 If you installed OPT-PRE cards, complete one of the following based upon your MetroPlanner site plan. If an OPT-PRE card is not installed, continue with Step 11.

If the site plan includes DCUs, complete the "G31 Install the DWDM Dispersion Compensating Units" procedure.

If the site plan does not include DCUs, install a 5 dB attenuator between the OPT-PRE DC TX and RX ports.

Step 11 Continue with the "G32 Install the Transponder and Muxponder Cards" procedure.

CTC node view with slots preprovisioned based on the Cisco MetroPlanner Site Dialog window.

Written slot plan. The plan must be based on the Cisco MetroPlanner Site Dialog window for your installation.

Step 2 Remove the TXP or MXP card from its packaging, then remove the protective clips from the backplane connectors.

Step 3 Open the card latches/ejectors.

Step 4 Use the latches/ejectors to firmly slide the TXP or MXP card along the guide rails until the card plugs into the receptacle at the back of the slot.


Note If you install the wrong card in a slot, complete the "NTP-G107 Remove and Replace DWDM Cards" procedure on page 11-12.


Step 5 Verify that the card is inserted correctly and close the latches/ejectors on the card.


Note It is possible to close the latches and ejectors when the card is not completely plugged into the backplane. Ensure that you cannot insert the card any further.


Step 6 Verify the LED activity:

The red FAIL LED turns on for 20 to 30 seconds.

The red FAIL LED blinks for 35 to 45 seconds.

All LEDs blink once and turn off for 5 to 10 seconds.

The ACT or ACT/STBY LED turns on. The SF LED can persist until all card ports connect to their far-end counterparts and a signal is present.

Step 7 If the card does not boot up properly, or the LED activity does not mirror Step 6, check the following:

When a physical card type does not match the type of card provisioned for that slot in CTC, the card might not boot. If a TXP or MXP card does not boot, open CTC and ensure that the slot is not provisioned for a different card type before assuming that the card is faulty.

If the red FAIL LED does not turn on, check the power.

If you insert a card into a slot provisioned for a different card, all LEDs turn off.

If the red FAIL LED is on continuously or the LEDs behave erratically, the card is not installed properly. Remove the card and repeat Steps 3 to 6.

Step 8 If the TXP or MXP requires a small-form pluggable (SFP), complete the "DLP-G63 Install an SFP" task. To remove an SFP, complete the "DLP-G64 Remove an SFP" task.


Note SFPs must be provisioned in CTC. You will be directed to the "NTP-G94 Provision Pluggable Port Modules" procedure on page 10-29 during network turn up. For more information about SFPs, see the "14.13  SFP Modules" section on page 14-123.

Step 1 Refer to the Cisco MetroPlanner internal connections table for your site when completing OSC connections. Before you begin the OSC connections, read the following rules:

The OPT-BST and the OSC-CSM are the only cards that directly interface with the line (span) fiber.

The OSCM only carries optical service channels, not DWDM channels.

The OSCM and the OSC-CSM cannot both be installed on the same side of the shelf (east or west). You can have different cards on each side, for example an OSCM on the west side and an OSC-CSM on the east side.

When an OPT-BST and an OSC-CSM are both used on the same side of the node, the OPT-BST combines the supervision channel with the DWDM channels and the OSC-CSM acts as an OSCM; it does not carry DWDM traffic.

If an OPT-BST and OSCM card are installed on the east side, the east OPT-BST OSC RX port is connected to the east OSCM TX port, and the east OPT-BST OSC TX port is connected to the east OSCM RX port.

If you have an OPT-BST and OSC-CSM card are installed on the east side, the east OPT-BST OSC RX port is connected to the east OSC-CSM LINE TX port, and the east OPT-BST OSC TX port is connected to the east OSC-CSM LINE RX port.

If an OPT-BST and OSCM card are installed on the west side, The west OPT-BST OSC TX port is connected to the west OSCM RX port, and the west OPT-BST OSC RX port is connected to the west OSCM TX port.

If you have an OPT-BST and OSC-CSM card are installed on the west side, the west OPT-BST OSC TX port is connected to the west OSC-CSM LINE RX port, and the west OPT-BST OSC RX port is connected to the west OSC-CSM LINE TX port.

Figure 3-11 shows an example of OSC fibering for a hub node with OSCM cards installed.

Step 2 Plug one end of a fiber into the west OPT-BST or OSC-CSM LINE TX connector and the other end into the adjacent node east OPT-BST or OSC-CSM LINE RX connector. Repeat in the other direction (east to west, TX to RX). Always connect the west line ports to the adjacent node east line ports.


Note Cards display an SF LED after the OSC terminations are created (see the "G38 Provision Terminations and Ring ID" procedure) and transmit and receive fibers are not connected correctly. For example, an RX port is connected to another RX port or a TX port is connected to another TX port.


Step 3 If OSCM cards are not installed, continue with Step 4. If OSCM cards are installed.

a. Plug one end of a fiber into the west OPT-BST OSC RX connector and the other end into west OSCM OSC TX connector.

b. Plug another fiber into the west OSCM OSC RX connector and the other end to the west OPT-BST OSC TX connector.

c. plug one end of a fiber into the east OPT-BST OSC RX connector and the other end into east OSCM TX connector.

d. Plug another fiber into the east OSCM OSC RX connector and the other end to the east OPT-BST OSC TX connector.

Note Amplified OADM nodes contain OPT-PRE cards and/or OPT-BST cards. Passive OADM nodes do not. Both contain add/drop channel or band cards.



Step 1 Refer to the Cisco MetroPlanner internal connections table for your site when completing connections. Before you begin connecting fiber-optic cabling for amplified or passive OADM nodes, read the following rules for all OADM connections:

The two sides of the OADM node do not need to be symmetrical. On each side, Cisco MetroPlanner can create one of the following four configurations:

OPT-BST and OPT-PRE

OSC-CSM and OPT-PRE

Only OSC-CSM

Only OPT-BST

Step 2 Consult the following rules for OADM node express path cabled connections:

TX ports should only be connected to RX ports.

EXP ports are connected only to COM ports in between AD-xC or AD-xB cards that all belong to the east side (that is, they are daisy-chained).

EXP ports are connected only to COM ports in between AD-xC or AD-xB cards that all belong to the west side (that is, they are daisy-chained).

The EXP port of the last AD-xC or AD-xB card on the west side is connected to the EXP port of the first AD-xC or AD-xB card on the east side.

The OPT-BST COM RX port is connected to the nearest (in slot position) AD-xC or AD-xB COM TX port.

The OPT-PRE COM TX port is connected to the nearest (in slot position) AD-xC or AD-xB COM RX port.

If OADM cards are located in adjacent slots, the TCC2 card assumes they are connected in a daisy-chain between the EXP ports and COM ports as noted previously.

The first west AD-xC or AD-xB card COM RX port is connected to the west OPT-PRE or OSC-CSM COM TX port.

The first west AD-xC or AD-xB card COM TX port is connected to the west OPT-BST or OSC-CSM COM RX port.

The first east AD-xC or AD-xB card COM RX port is connected to the east OPT-PRE or OSC-CSM COM TX port.

The first east AD-xC or AD-xB card COM TX port is connected to the east OPT-BST or OSC-CSM RX port.

If a west OPT-PRE is present, the west OPT-BST or OSC-CSM COM TX port is connected to the west OPT-PRE COM RX port.

If an east OPT-PRE is present, the east OPT-BST or OSC-CSM COM TX port is connected to the east OPT-PRE COM RX port.

Step 3 Consult the following rules for OADM node add/drop path cabled connections:

AD-xB add/drop (RX or TX) ports are only connected to the following ports:

4MD COM TX or 4MD COM RX ports

Another AD-xB add/drop port (a pass-through configuration)

An AD-xB add/drop band port is only connected to a 4MD card belonging to the same band.

For each specific AD-xB, the add and drop ports for that band card are connected to the COM TX and COM RX ports of the same 4MD card.

The AD-xB and 4MD cards are located in the same side (the connected ports will all have the same line direction).

Step 4 Consult the following rules for OADM node pass-through path cabled connections:

Pass-through connections are only established between add and drop ports on the same band or channel and same line direction.

Only connect AD-xC or AD-xB add/drop ports to other AD-xC or AD-xB add/drop ports (as pass-through configurations).

An add (RX) port is only connected to a drop (TX) port.

Only connect 4MD client input/output ports to other 4MD client input/output ports.

Step 1 Complete the "DLP-G46 Log into CTC" task on page 2-25 at the node where you want to provision the DWDM cable connections. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.

Step 2 Click the Alarms tab.

a. Verify that the alarm filter is not on. See the "DLP-G128 Disable Alarm Filtering" task on page 7-32 as necessary.

b. Verify that no unexplained equipment alarms appear on the node. If alarms appear, investigate and resolve them before continuing. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SONET and DWDM Troubleshooting Guide for procedures.

Step 3 Click the Provisioning > WDM-ANS > Connections tabs.

Step 4 Click the Calculate Connections button.

CTC verifies that the cards installed in the ONS 15454 shelf are compatible and that all cards required for the DWDM node type are installed. If so, CTC calculates the fiber connections that should be provisioned. If the cards are not compatible or missing, for example, if an OPT-BST is installed but an OSCM card is not installed, the calculate connections function generates an error.


Note The connections calculation is not based on the Cisco MetroPlanner site plan. Calculations are based on the cards that are physically installed. If the site plan calls for a hub node but OADM cards are installed, CTC calculates connections based on the cards expected for an OADM node.


Step 5 If no errors were generated, continue with Step 6. If errors appear, verify that the cards installed in the shelf match the shelf plan calculated by Cisco MetroPlanner. If cards are installed incorrectly or are missing, remove the cards and install them in the correct slots following the "G30 Install the DWDM Cards" procedure.

Step 6 Verify that the connections in the CTC Connections tab match the connections in the Cisco MetroPlanner internal connections file. (The CTC Connections tab will not show OPT-PRE dispersion connections, span connections, or connections between TXP and MXP cards and the DWDM cards.)

Step 7 Complete the "DLP-G72 Create a DWDM Connection" task for any connections that require manual provisioning. (Connections that require manual creation are indicated by a "Yes" in the Cisco MetroPlanner connections file Manually Set column.) If you need to delete a connection, complete the "DLP-G73 Delete a DWDM Connection" task

Step 8 Continue with the "G37 Run Automatic Node Setup" procedure.
