Note The Cisco OC3 IR/STM1 SH 1310-8, OC12 IR/STM4 SH 1310, and OC48 IR/STM16 SH AS 1310 interface optics, all working on 1310 nm, are optimized for the most widely used SMF-28 fiber, available from many suppliers.

Corning MetroCor fiber is optimized for optical interfaces that transmit at 1550 nm or in the C and L DWDM windows, and targets interfaces with higher dispersion tolerances than those found in OC3 IR/STM1 SH 1310-8, OC12 IR/STM4 SH 1310, and OC48 IR/STM16 SH AS1310 interface optics. If you are using Corning MetroCor fiber, OC3 IR/STM1 SH 1310-8, OC12 IR/STM4 SH 1310, and OC48 IR/STM16 SH AS 1310 interface optics become dispersion limited before they become attenuation limited. In this case, consider using OC12 LR/STM4 LH 1550 and OC48 LR/STM16 LH 1550 AS cards instead of OC12 IR/STM4 SH and OC48 IR/STM16 SH cards.

With all fiber types, network planners/engineers should review the relative fiber type and optics specifications to determine attenuation, dispersion, and other characteristics to ensure appropriate deployment.

4.10  OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz Cards

Eighteen distinct STM-16 ITU 100-GHz DWDM cards comprise the ONS 15454 SDH DWDM channel plan. This plan contains every second wavelength in the ITU grid for 100-GHz-spaced DWDM. Though the ONS 15454 SDH only uses 200-GHz spacing, the cards work in 100-GHz-spaced nodes, as well.

Each OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz card provides one SDH STM-16 port compliant with ITU-T G.692, ITU-T G.707, ITU-T G.957, and ITU-T G.958. The interface operates at 2.488 Gbps over a single-mode fiber span. Each card supports concatenated or nonconcatenated payloads at STM-1, STM-4, or STM-16 signal levels on a per VC-4 basis. Figure 4-15 shows the OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz faceplate.

Figure 4-15 OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz Faceplate

Figure 4-16 shows a block diagram of the card.

Figure 4-16 OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz Block Diagram

4.10.1  OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz Card Functionality

You can install the OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards in Slot 5, 6, 12, or 13. You can provision this card as part of a MS-SPRing or SNCP. In an ADM/TM configuration, you can provision the card as either an access tributary or a transport span interface.

Nine of the cards operate in the blue band with a spacing of 2 * 100 GHz in the ITU grid (1530.33 nm, 1531.90 nm, 1533.47 nm, 1535.04 nm, 1536.61 nm, 1538.19 nm, 1539.77 nm, 1541.35 nm, and 1542.94 nm). The other nine cards operate in the red band with a spacing of 2 * 100 GHz in the ITU grid (1547.72 nm, 1549.32 nm, 1550.92 nm, 1552.52 nm, 1554.13 nm, 1555.75 nm, 1557.36 nm, 1558.98 nm, and 1560.61 nm).

Each OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz card uses extended long-reach optics operating individually within the ITU 100-GHz grid. The OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards are intended to be used in applications with long unregenerated spans of up to 200 km (with mid-span amplification). These transmission distances are achieved through the use of inexpensive optical amplifiers (flat gain amplifiers) such as erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFAs). Using collocated amplification, distances up to 200 km can be achieved for a single channel (160 km for 8 channels).

Maximum system reach in filterless applications is 24 dB, or approximately 80 km, without the use
of optical amplifiers or regenerators. However, system reach also depends on the condition of the facilities, number of splices and connectors, and other performance-affecting factors. The OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards feature wavelength stability of +/- 0.25 nm. Each port contains a transmitter and a receiver.

The OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards are the first in a family of cards meant to support extended long-reach applications in conjunction with optical amplification. Using DFB laser technology, the OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards provide a solution at the lower extended long-reach distances.

The OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz port features a 1550-nm range laser and contains a transmit and receive connector (labeled) on the card faceplate. The card uses SC connectors and supports 1+1 unidirectional and bidirectional protection switching.

The OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards detect LOS, LOF, LOP, MS-AIS, and MS-FERF conditions. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide for a description of these conditions. The cards also count section and line BIP errors.

To enable an MSP-SPRing, the OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards extract the K1 and K2 bytes from the SDH overhead. The GCC bytes are forwarded to the TCC2/TCC2P card; the TCC2/TCC2P terminates the GCC.

If the ACT/STBY LED is green, the card is operational and ready to carry traffic. If the ACT/STBY LED is amber, the card is in standby mode or is part of an active ring switch (BLSR).

Amber SF LED

The amber SF LED indicates a signal failure or condition such as LOS, LOF, or high BERs on one or more of the card's ports. The amber SF LED is also on if the transmit and receive fibers are incorrectly connected. If the fibers are properly connected and the link is working, the light turns off.


4.13.3  OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 Port-Level Indicators

You can find the status of the OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 card ports using the LCD screen on the ONS 15454 SDH fan-tray assembly. Use the LCD to view the status of any port or card slot; the screen displays the number and severity of alarms for a given port or slot. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide for a complete description of the alarm messages.


Note The optical output power of the OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 (+4 dBm to +7 dBm) is 6 dB lower than in L-64.2b of the 10/2000 prepublished unedited version of ITU-T G.691 (+10 dBm to +13 dBm). However, the total attenuation range of the optical path, 22 to 16 dB, is maintained by the optical receiver sensitivity range of the OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 (-7 dBm to -24 dBm). This sensitivity range outperforms the specification in L-64.2b of the 10/2000 prepublished unedited version of ITU-T G.691 as the resulting link budget of the card is 26 dBm.


4.14  OC192 LR/STM64 LH ITU 15xx.xx Card

Sixteen distinct STM-64 ITU 100 GHz DWDM cards comprise the ONS 15454 SDH DWDM channel plan. The OC192 LR/STM64 LH ITU 15xx.xx card provides one long-range SDH STM-64 port per card, compliant with ITU-T G.707 and G.957, and Telcordia GR-253-CORE (except minimum and maximum transmit power, and minimum receive power). The port operates at 9.95328 Gbps over unamplified distances up to 60 km with different types of fiber such as C-SMF or dispersion compensated fiber limited by loss and/or dispersion.


Note Longer distances are possible in an amplified system using dispersion compensation.


The card supports concatenated or nonconcatenated payloads on a VC-4 basis, as well as VC-4, VC-3, and VC-12 payloads. Figure 4-23 shows the OC192 LR/STM64 LH ITU 15xx.xx faceplate.

4.14.1  OC192 LR/STM64 LH ITU 15xx.xx Card Functionality

You can install OC192 LR/STM64 LH ITU 15xx.xx cards in Slot 5, 6, 12, or 13. You can provision this card as part of an MS-SPRing, SNCP, or linear configuration, or as a regenerator for longer span reaches.

Eight of the OC192 LR/STM64 LH ITU 15xx.xx cards operate in the blue band with a spacing of 100 GHz in the ITU grid (1534.25 nm, 1535.04 nm, 1535.82 nm, 1536.61 nm, 1538.19 nm, 1538.98 nm, 1539.77 nm, and 1540.56 nm). The other eight cards operate in the red band with a spacing of 100 GHz in the ITU grid (1550.12 nm, 1550.92 nm, 1551.72 nm, 1552.52 nm, 1554.13 nm, 1554.94 nm, 1555.75 nm, and 1556.55 nm).

The OC192 LR/STM64 LH ITU 15xx.xx port features a laser on a specific wavelength in the 1550-nm range and contains a transmit and receive connector (labeled) on the card faceplate. The card uses a dual SC connector for optical cable termination. The card supports 1+1 unidirectional and bidirectional facility protection. It also supports 1:1 protection in four-fiber BLSR applications where both span switching and ring switching might occur.

The OC192 LR/STM64 LH ITU 15xx.xx card detects SF, LOS, or LOF conditions on the optical facility. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide for a description of these conditions. The card also counts section and line BIP errors from B1 and B2 byte registers in the section and line overhead.
