DLP-D325 Install Timing Cables on the MIC-C/T/P

Purpose

This task installs the timing cables on the MIC-C/T/P.

Tools/Equipment

75-ohm coaxial cable with a 1.0/2.3 miniature coax connector on the MIC-C/T/P side

Prerequisite Procedures

NTP-D220 Install the Power and Signal FMECs, page 1-7

Required/As Needed

As needed

Onsite/Remote

Security Level

None



Step 1 Using coaxial cable with 1.0/2.3 miniature coax connectors, connect the clock cable to the appropriate connector on the faceplate of the MIC-C/T/P.

Step 2 Gently push the cable with the 1.0/2.3 miniature coax connector down until the cable connector slides into the 1.0/2.3 miniature coax connector on the faceplate with a click.

The MIC-C/T/P provides 1.0/2.3 miniature coax connectors that are used for timing input and output. The top connectors are for "A" (BITS-1) timing, and the bottom connectors are for "B" (BITS-2) timing. In each case, the left connector is the input and the right connector is the output. The input connectors for timing provide a 75-ohm termination. System cables are available that can convert timing clocks from 75 ohms to 100/120 ohms. Table 20-2 shows MIC-C/T/P pin assignments.

Table 20-2 MIC-C/T/P Clock Connector Pin Assignment

A high-impedance option (> 3 kilo-ohms or greater) is possible through a jumper on the MIC-C/T/P FMEC. You can change the top timing input to high impedance by removing the jumper on P3 on the MIC-C/T/P FMEC. You can change the bottom timing input to high impedance by removing the jumper on P2 of the MIC-C/T/P FMEC.


Note Refer to ITU-T G.813 for rules about provisioning timing references.


Step 3 Connect the other end of the cable to the external source of the timing signal according to Table 20-2.

Step 4 Repeat Step 3 for each cable that is required.

Step 5 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).


DLP-D326 Install LAN Wires on the MIC-C/T/P

Purpose

This task installs the LAN wires on the MIC-C/T/P.

Tools/Equipment

Standard CAT-5 unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) Ethernet cable (straight-through for data terminal equipment [DTE] or cross-over for data circuit-terminating equipment [DCE])

or

RJ-45 connector

Crimping tool for RJ-45 connector

0.51 mm² or 0.64 mm² (#22 or #24 AWG) wire, preferably CAT-5 UTP

Note Rather than using the LAN connection port on the MIC-C/T/P, you can use the LAN connection port on the TCC2/TCC2P card if preferred. Use either the MIC-C/T/P connection or the TCC2/TCC2P card connection. You cannot use the LAN connection port on the MIC-C/T/P and the LAN connection port on the TCC2/TCC2P card simultaneously; however, it is possible for you to make a direct connection from a computer to the LAN connection port on the TCC2/TCC2P card while the LAN connection port on the MIC-C/T/P is in use as long as the computer connected directly to the TCC2/TCC2P card is not connected to a LAN.



Step 1 Using 0.51 mm² or 0.64 mm² (#22 or #24 AWG) wire or CAT-5 UTP Ethernet cable, connect the wires to the RJ-45 connector according to Table 20-3 and crimp the connector to the cable.

DLP-D332 Install the TCC2/TCC2P Cards

Purpose

This task installs redundant TCC2/TCC2P cards. The first card you install in the ONS 15454 SDH must be a TCC2/TCC2P card, and it must initialize before you install any cross-connect or traffic cards.

Tools/Equipment

Two TCC2/TCC2P cards

Prerequisite Procedures

None

Required/As Needed

Required

Onsite/Remote

Onsite

Security Level

None



Note When installing cards, allow each card to boot completely before installing the next card.



Step 1 Open the latches/ejectors of the TCC2/TCC2P card that you will install.

Step 2 Use the latches/ejectors to firmly slide the card along the guide rails until the card plugs into the receptacle at the back of the slot (Slot 7 or 11).

Step 3 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.


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

Step 4 Go to Step a to verify the LED activity on the TCC2 card. For the TCC2P card, go to Step b.

a. For the TCC2 card:

All LEDs turn on briefly.

The red FAIL LED, the yellow ACT/STBY LED, the red REM LED, the green SYNC LED, and the green ACO LED turn on for about 10 seconds.

The red FAIL LED and the green ACT/STBY LED turn on for about 40 seconds.

The red FAIL LED blinks for about 10 seconds.

The red FAIL LED turns on for about 5 seconds.

Both green PWR LEDs turn on for 5 seconds. The PWR LEDs then turn red for 2 to 3 minutes before going to steady green.

All LEDs (including the CRIT, MAJ, MIN, REM, SYNC, and ACO LEDs) blink once and turn off for about 10 seconds.

The yellow ACT/STBY LED turns on. (The ACT/STBY LED might take several minutes to turn on while the DCC processor boots.)


Note It might take up to 3 minutes for the A and B power alarms to clear.



Note Alarm LEDs might be on; disregard alarm LEDs until you are logged into CTC and can view the Alarms tab.



Note If you are logged into CTC, the SFTWDOWN alarm might appear as many as two times while the TCC2 card initializes. The alarm should clear after the card completely boots.



Note If the FAIL LED is on continuously, see the tip below about the TCC2 card automatic upload.


b. For the TCC2P card:

All LEDs turn on briefly.

The red FAIL LED, the yellow ACT/STBY LED, the red REM LED, the green SYNC LED, and the green ACO LED turn on for about 10 seconds.

The red FAIL LED and the green ACT/STBY LED turn on for about 40 seconds.

The red FAIL LED blinks for about 10 seconds.

The red FAIL LED turns on for about 5 seconds.

The red FAIL LED blinks for about 5 seconds and then becomes solid.

All LEDs (including the CRIT, MAJ, MIN, REM, SYNC, and ACO LEDs) blink once and turn off for about 10 seconds.

Both green PWR LEDs turn on for 5 seconds. The PWR LEDs then turn red for 2 to 3 minutes before going to steady green.

The yellow ACT/STBY turns on and the PWR LEDs turn red for 2 to 3 minutes. (The Sync LED may be green at this time.)

The yellow ACT/STBY LED turns on. (The ACT/STBY LED might take several minutes to turn on while the DCC processor boots.)


Note It might take up to 3 minutes for the A and B power alarms to clear.



Note Alarm LEDs might be on; disregard alarm LEDs until you are logged into CTC and can view the Alarms tab.



Note If you are logged into CTC, the SFTWDOWN alarm might appear as many as two times while the TCC2P card initializes. The alarm should clear after the card completely boots.



Note If the FAIL LED is on continuously, see the tip below about the TCC2P card automatic upload.


Step 5 Verify that the ACT/STBY LED is green if this is the powered-up TCC2/TCC2P card installed, or yellow for standby if this is the second powered-up TCC2/TCC2P. The IP address, temperature of the node, and time of day appear on the LCD. The default time and date is 12:00 AM, January 1, 1970.

Step 6 The LCD cycles through the IP address, node name, and software version. Verify that the correct software version displays on the LCD.

Step 7 If the LCD shows the correct software version, continue with Step 8. If the LCD does not show the correct software version, upgrade the software or remove the TCC2/TCC2P card and install a replacement card.

Refer to the release-specific software upgrade document to replace the software. To exchange the TCC2/TCC2P card, see the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide.

Step 8 Repeat Steps 1 through 7 for the redundant TCC2/TCC2P card.


Tip If you install a standby TCC2/TCC2P card that has a different software version than the active TCC card, the newly installed standby TCC2/TCC2P card automatically copies the software version from the active TCC2/TCC2P card. You do not need to do anything in this situation. However, the loading TCC2/TCC2P card does not boot up in the normal manner. When the standby card is first inserted, the LEDs follow most of the sequence listed in Step 4. After the red FAIL LED turns on for about 5 seconds, the FAIL LED and the ACT/STBY LED begin to flash alternately for up to 30 minutes while the new software loads onto the active TCC2/TCC2P card. After loading the new software, the upgraded TCC2/TCC2P card's LEDs repeat the sequence from Step 4, and the amber ACT/STBY LED turns on.

Note To avoid error, connect fiber-optic cable so that the farthest slot to the right represents the east port, and the farthest slot to the left represents the west port. Fiber connected to an east port at one node must plug into the west port on an adjacent node.



Caution Do not provision the SNCP east and west ports on the same STM-N card.


Step 1 Plan your fiber connections. Use the same plan for all SNCP nodes.

Step 2 Plug the fiber into the transmit (Tx) connector of an STM-N card at one node and plug the other end of the fiber into the receive (Rx) connector of an STM-N card at the adjacent node. The card displays an SF LED if the transmit and receive fibers are mismatched (one fiber connects a receive port on one card to a receive port on another card, or the same situation with transmit ports).

Step 3 Repeat Step 2 until you have configured the ring.

Enable Distance Extension

If checked, allows additional distance by providing a GFP-T based flow control scheme. It enables the node to be a part of a Storage Area Network (SAN) with long-distance, remote nodes. If left unchecked, the remaining options are not available for editing. If Distance Extension is enabled, set the connected Fibre Channel switches to Interop or Open Fabric mode, depending on the Fibre Channel switch. By default, the FC_MR-4 card will interoperate with the Cisco MDS storage products.

Auto Detect Credits

If checked, enables the node to detect the transmit credits from a remote node. Credits are used for link flow control and for Extended Link Protocol (ELP) login frames between Fibre Channel/fiber connectivity (FICON) Switch E ports.

Credits Available

Sets the number of credits if a ELP login frame setting is missing or if the ELP login frame cannot be detected. Credits Available is editable only if Auto Detect Credits is unchecked.

Note Longer distances between connected devices need more credits to compensate for the latency introduced by the long-distance link. The value should never be greater than the number of credits supported by the Fibre Channel/FICON port.

Numeric. 2 through 256, multiples of 2 only

Autoadjust GFP Buffer Threshold

If checked, guarantees the best utilization of the SONET/SDH transport in terms of bandwidth and latency.

Ingress Idle Filtering

If checked, prevents removal of excess Fibre Channel/FICON IDLE codes from SONET transport. IDLEs are 8b10b control words that are sent between frames when there is no data to send. Ingress idle filtering applies only to SONET circuit bandwidth sizes that allow full line rate Fibre Channel/FICON transport. It can be used for interoperability with remote Fibre Channel/FICON over third-party SONET equipment.

Maximum Frame Size

Sets the maximum size of a valid frame. This setting prevents oversized performance monitoring accumulation for frame sizes that are above the Fibre Channel maximum. This can occur for Fibre Channel frames with added virtual SAN (VSAN) tags that are generated by the Cisco MDS 9000 switches.

Note If neither port is on a transmit/receive card, you cannot complete this procedure.


Step 4 Choose the VC12 circuit you want to trace, then double-click it (or click Edit).

Step 5 In the Edit Circuit window, click the Show Detailed Map check box at the bottom of the window. A detailed map of the source and destination ports appears.

Step 6 Provision the circuit source transmit string:

a. On the detailed circuit map, right-click the circuit source port (the square on the left or right of the source node icon) and choose Edit J2 Path Trace (port) from the shortcut menu.

b. Click the 16 byte button.

c. In the New Transmit String field, enter the circuit source transmit string. Enter a string that makes the source port easy to identify, such as the node IP address, node name, circuit name, or another string. If the New Transmit String field is left blank, the J2 transmits a string of null characters.

d. Click Apply, then click Close.

Step 7 Provision the circuit destination transmit string:

a. On the detailed circuit map, right-click the circuit destination port and choose Edit Path Trace from the shortcut menu.

b. In the New Transmit String field, enter the string that you want the circuit destination to transmit. Enter a string that makes the destination port easy to identify, such as the node IP address, node name, circuit name, or another string. If the New Transmit String field is left blank, the J2 transmits a string of null characters.

c. Click Apply.

Step 8 Provision the circuit destination expected string:

a. In the Circuit Path Trace window, enable the path trace expected string by choosing Auto or Manual from the Path Trace Mode drop-down list:

Auto—The first string received from the source port is provisioned as the current expected string. An alarm is raised when a string that differs from the baseline is received.

Manual—The string entered in Current Expected String is the baseline. An alarm is raised when a string that differs from the Current Expected String is received.

b. If you set Path Trace Mode to Manual, enter the string that the circuit destination should receive from the circuit source in the New Expected String field. If you set Path Trace Mode to Auto, skip this step.

c. Click the Disable AIS and RDI on J2 TIM check box if you want to suppress the AIS and remote defect indication (RDI) when the LP-TIM alarm appears. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide for descriptions of alarms and conditions.

d. Click the Disable AIS on LO SLM check box if you want to suppress the AIS when the Low-Order Signal Label Mismatch (LO SLM) alarm appears. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide for descriptions of alarms and conditions.

e. (Check box visibility depends on card selection) Click the Disable AIS on C2 Mis-Match check box if you want to suppress the AIS when a C2 mismatch occurs.

f. Click Apply, then click Close.


Note It is not necessary to set the format (16 or 64 bytes) for the circuit destination expected string; the path trace process automatically determines the format.


Step 9 Provision the circuit source expected string:

a. In the Edit Circuit window (with Show Detailed Map chosen), right-click the circuit source port and choose Edit Path Trace from the shortcut menu.

b. In the Circuit Path Trace window, enable the path trace expected string by choosing Auto or Manual from the Path Trace Mode drop-down list:

Auto—Uses the first string received from port at the other end as the current expected string. An alarm is raised when a string that differs from the baseline is received.

Manual—Uses the Current Expected String field as the baseline string. An alarm is raised when a string that differs from the Current Expected String is received.

c. If you set the Path Trace Mode field to Manual, enter the string that the circuit source should receive from the circuit destination in the New Expected String field. If you set the Path Trace Mode field to Auto, skip this step.

d. Click the Disable AIS and RDI on J2 TIM check box if you want to suppress the AIS and RDI when the LP-TIM alarm appears. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide for descriptions of alarms and conditions.

e. Click the Disable AIS on LO SLM check box if you want to suppress the alarm indication signal when the LO SLM alarm appears. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide for descriptions of alarms and conditions.

f. (Check box visibility depends on card selection) Click the Disable AIS on C2 Mis-Match check box if you want to suppress the AIS when a C2 mismatch occurs.

g. Click Apply.


Note It is not necessary to set the format (16 or 64 bytes) for the circuit source expected string; the path trace process automatically determines the format.


Step 10 After you set up the path trace, the received string appears in the Received field on the path trace setup window. The following options are available:

Click Hex Mode to display path trace in hexadecimal format. The button name changes to ASCII Mode. Click it to return the path trace to ASCII format.

Click Reset to reread values from the port.

Click Default to return to the path trace default settings. (Path Trace Mode is set to Off and the New Transmit and New Expected Strings are null.)


Caution Clicking Default generates alarms if the port on the other end is provisioned with a different string.

The Expect and Receive strings are updated every few seconds if the Path Trace Mode field is set to Auto or Manual.

Step 11 Click Close.

When you display the detailed circuit window, path trace is indicated by an M (manual path trace) or an A (automatic path trace) at the circuit source and destination ports.

Step 12 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

High-order VCAT circuits are VC4-nv and VC4-4c-nv and low-order VCAT circuits are VC3-nv, where n is the number of members.

OCHNC Wlen—(DWDM only; refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide for further information.)

Direction—The circuit direction, either two-way or one-way.

OCHNC Dir—For OCHNCs, the direction of the optical channel network connection, either East to West or West to East. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide for further information.

Protection—The type of circuit protection. See Table 20-32 for a list of protection types.

Table 20-32 Circuit Protection Types 

Protection Type
Description

1+1

The circuit is protected by a 1+1 protection group.

2F MS-SPRing

The circuit is protected by a two-fiber MS-SPRing.

4F MS-SPRing

The circuit is protected by a four-fiber MS-SPRing.

2F-PCA

The circuit is routed on a protection channel access (PCA) path on a two-fiber MS-SPRing; PCA circuits are unprotected.

4F-PCA

The circuit is routed on a PCA path on a four-fiber MS-SPRing; PCA circuits are unprotected.

MS-SPRing

The circuit is protected by both a two-fiber and a four-fiber MS-SPRing.

N/A

A circuit with connections on the same node is not protected.

Protected

The circuit is protected by diverse SDH topologies, for example, an MS-SPRing and an SNCP, or an SNCP and a 1+1 protection group.

PCA

The circuit is routed on a PCA path on both two-fiber and four-fiber MS-SPRings; PCA circuits are unprotected.

SNCP

The circuit is protected by an SNCP.

SNCP-DRI

The circuit is protected by an SNCP DRI.

SPLITTER

The circuit is protected by the protect transponder (TXPP_MR_2.5G) splitter protection.

Unknown

A circuit has a source and destination on different nodes and communication is down between the nodes. This protection type appears if not all circuit components are known.

Unprot (black)

A circuit with a source and destination on different nodes is not protected.

Unprot (red)

A circuit created as a fully protected circuit is no longer protected due to a system change, such as removal of a MS-SPRing or 1+1 protection group.

Y-Cable

The circuit is protected by a transponder or muxponder card Y-cable protection group.


Status—The circuit status. Table 20-33 lists the circuit statuses that might appear.

Table 20-33 Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Circuit Status 

Status
Definition/Activity

CREATING

CTC is creating a circuit.

DISCOVERED

CTC created a circuit. All components are in place and a complete path exists from the circuit source to the circuit destination.

DELETING

CTC is deleting a circuit.

PARTIAL

A CTC-created circuit is missing a cross-connect or network span, a complete path from source to destination(s) does not exist, or an alarm interface panel (AIP) change occurred on one of the circuit nodes and the circuit is in need of repair. (AIPs store the node MAC address.)

In CTC, circuits are represented using cross-connects and network spans. If a network span is missing from a circuit, the circuit status is PARTIAL. However, a PARTIAL status does not necessarily mean a circuit traffic failure has occurred, because traffic might flow on a protect path.

Network spans are in one of two states: up or down. On CTC circuit and network maps, up spans are shown as green lines, and down spans are shown as gray lines. If a failure occurs on a network span during a CTC session, the span remains on the network map but its color changes to gray to indicate the span is down. If you restart your CTC session while the failure is active, the new CTC session cannot discover the span and its span line will not appear on the network map.

Subsequently, circuits routed on a network span that goes down will appear as DISCOVERED during the current CTC session, but they will appear as PARTIAL to users who log in after the span failure.

DISCOVERED_TL1

A TL1-created circuit or a TL1-like CTC-created circuit is complete. A complete path from source to destination(s) exists.

PARTIAL_TL1

A TL1-created circuit or a TL1-like CTC-created circuit is missing a cross-connect, and a complete path from source to destination(s) does not exist.


Source—The circuit source in the format: node/slot/port "port name" virtual_container/tributary_ unit_group/tributary_unit_group/virtual_container. (The port name appears in quotes.) Node and slot always appear; port "port name"/virtual_container/tributary_unit_group/tributary_unit group/virtual_container might appear, depending on the source card, circuit type, and whether a name is assigned to the port. If the circuit is a concatenated size (VC4-2c, VC4-4c, VC4-8c, etc.) VCs used in the circuit are indicated by an ellipsis, for example, "VC4-7..9" (VCs 7, 8, and 9) or VC4-10..12 (VC 10, 11, and 12).

Destination—The circuit destination in same format (node/slot/port "port name" virtual_container/tributary_unit_group/tributary_unit_group/virtual_container) as the circuit source.

# of VLANS—The number of VLANs used by an Ethernet circuit with end points on E-Series Ethernet cards in single card or multicard mode.

# of Spans—The number of internode links that compose the circuit. Right-clicking the column displays a shortcut menu from which you can choose to show or hide circuit span detail.

State—The circuit service state, which is an aggregate of its cross-connects. The service states are Unlocked, Locked, or Locked-partial. For more information about circuit service states, refer to the "Administrative and Service States" appendix of the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual.

Unlocked—All cross-connects are in service and operational.

Locked—All cross-connects are Locked-enabled,maintenance or Locked-enabled,disabled.

Locked-partial—At least one cross-connect is Unlocked-enabled and others are in the Locked-enabled,maintenance and/or Locked-enabled,disabled service states.

Step 3 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).


DLP-D371 View the MS-SPRing Squelch Table

Purpose

This task allows you to view the MS-SPRing squelch table for an ONS 15454 SDH MS-SPRing node. Squelching replaces traffic by the appropriate path AIS; it prevents traffic misconnections when a working channel service contends for access to a protection channel time slot carrying extra traffic. The table shows VC4s in the MS-SPRing squelched for every isolated node.
