Admin State

Sets the port service state unless network conditions prevent the change. For more information about administrative states, see Appendix C, "DWDM Enhanced State Model."

IS (ANSI) or Unlocked (ETSI)—Puts the port in-service. The port service state changes to IS-NR (ANSI) or Unlocked-enabled (ETSI).

IS,AINS (ANSI) or Unlocked,automaticInService (ETSI)—Puts the port in automatic in-service. The port service state changes to OOS-AU,AINS (ANSI) or Unlocked-disabled,automaticInService (ETSI).

OOS,DSBLD (ANSI) or Locked,disabled (ETSI)—Removes the port from service and disables it. The port service state changes to OOS-MA,DSBLD (ANSI) or Locked-enabled,disabled (ETSI).

OOS,MT (ANSI) or Locked,maintenance (ETSI)—Removes the port from service for maintenance. The port service state changes to OOS-MA,MT (ANSI) or Locked-enabled,maintenance (ETSI).

Service State

Identifies the autonomously generated state that gives the overall condition of the port. Service states appear in the format: Primary State-Primary State Qualifier, Secondary State. For more information about service states, see Appendix C, "DWDM Enhanced State Model."

IS-NR (In-Service and Normal [ANSI]) or Unlocked-enabled (ETSI)— The port is fully operational and performing as provisioned.

OOS-AU,AINS (Out-Of-Service and Autonomous, Automatic In-Service [ANSI]) or Unlocked-disabled,automaticInService (ETSI)— The port is out-of-service, but traffic is carried. Alarm reporting is suppressed. The ONS node monitors the ports for an error-free signal. After an error-free signal is detected, the port stays in the OOS-AU,AINS/Unlocked-disabled,automaticInService state for the duration of the soak period. After the soak period ends, the port service state changes to IS-NR/Unlocked-enabled.

OOS-MA,DSBLD (Out-of-Service and Management, Disabled [ANSI]) or Locked-enabled,disabled (ETSI)— The port is out-of-service and unable to carry traffic.

OOS-MA,MT (Out-of-Service and Management, Maintenance [ANSI]) or Locked-enabled,maintenance (ETSI)— The port is out-of-service for maintenance. Alarm reporting is suppressed, but traffic is carried and loopbacks are allowed.

AINS Soak

Sets the automatic in-service soak period.

Duration of valid input signal, in hh.mm format, after which the card becomes in service (IS) automatically

0 to 48 hours, 15-minute increments

Type

Defines the port as SONET or SDH. The Enable Sync Msg field and the Send Do Not Use field must be disabled before the port can be set to SDH.

ALS Mode

Sets the automatic laser shutdown function mode. The DWDM transmitter supports ALS according to ITU-T G.644 (06/99). ALS can be disabled or be set for three mode options.

Disable: ALS is off; the laser is not automatically shut down when traffic outages (LOS) occur.

Auto Restart: ALS is on; the laser automatically shuts down when traffic outages (LOS) occur. It automatically restarts when the conditions that caused the outage are resolved.

Manual Restart: ALS is on; the laser automatically shuts down when traffic outages (LOS) occur. However, the laser must be manually restarted when conditions that caused the outage are resolved.

Manual Restart for Test: Manually restarts the laser for testing.

Caution When provisioning orderwire for ONS 15454s residing in a ring, do not provision a complete orderwire loop. For example, a four-node ring typically has east and west ports provisioned at all four nodes. However, to prevent orderwire loops, provision two orderwire ports (east and west) at all but one of the ring nodes.


Tip Before you begin, make a list of the ONS 15454 slots and ports that require orderwire communication.



Step 1 In node view, double-click the AIC card to display it in card view.

Step 2 Click the Provisioning > Local Orderwire tabs or Provisioning > Express Orderwire tabs, depending on the orderwire path that you want to create.

Step 1 Confirm that external-device relays are wired to the ENVIR ALARMS IN pins. See the "DLP-G20 Install Alarm Wires on the MIC-A/P (ETSI Only)" task on page 1-48 (ETSI) or "DLP-G23 Install Alarm Wires on the Backplane (ANSI Only)" task on page 1-53 (ANSI) for more information.

Step 2 Double-click the AIC-I card to display it in card view.

Step 3 Click the Provisioning > External Alarms tabs.

Step 4 Modify any of the following fields for each external device wired to the ONS 15454 backplane. For definitions of these fields, see the "NTP-G72 Provision External Alarms and Controls on the Alarm Interface Controller-International" procedure on page 7-38.

DLP-G247 Change AIC-I Card Orderwire Settings

Caution When provisioning orderwire for ONS 15454s residing in a ring, do not provision a complete orderwire loop. For example, a four-node ring typically has east and west ports provisioned at all four nodes. However, to prevent orderwire loops, provision two orderwire ports (east and west) at all but one of the ring nodes.


Tip Before you begin, make a list of the ONS 15454 slots and ports that require orderwire communication.



Step 1 In node view, double-click the AIC-I card to display it in card view.

Step 2 Click the Provisioning > Local Orderwire tabs or the Provisioning > Express Orderwire tabs, depending on the orderwire path that you want to change. Provisioning steps are the same for both types of orderwire.

Step 3 If needed, adjust the Tx and Rx dBm values by moving the slider to the right or left for the headset type (four-wire or two-wire) that you will use. In general, you should not need to adjust the dBm values.

Step 4 If you want to turn on the audible alert (buzzer) for the orderwire, check the Buzzer On check box.

Step 5 Click Apply.

Step 6 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).
