Note In node or card view, you can change the scope of the circuits that appear by choosing Card (in card view), Node, or Network from the Scope drop-down list in the bottom right corner of the Circuits window.


Step 2 Click the Circuits tab. The Circuits tab shows the following information:

Name—Name of the circuit. The circuit name can be manually assigned or automatically generated.

Type—Circuit types are STS (STS circuit), VT (VT circuit), VTT (VT tunnel), VAP (VT aggregation point), OCHNC (dense wavelength division multiplexing [DWDM] optical channel network connection), STS-v (STS virtual concatenated [VCAT] circuit), and VT-v (VT VCAT circuit).

Size—Circuit size. VT circuit size is 1.5. STS circuit sizes are 1, 3c, 6c, 9c, 12c,18c, 24c, 36c, 48c, and 192c. OCHNC circuit sizes are Equipped not specific, Multi-rate, 2.5 Gbps No FEC (forward error correction), 2.5 Gbps FEC, 10 Gbps No FEC, and 10 Gbps FEC (DWDM only; refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide). VCAT circuit sizes are VT1.5-nv, STS-1-nv, STS-3c-nv, and STS-12c-nv, where n is the number of members.

OCHNC Wlen—For OCHNCs, the wavelength provisioned for the optical channel network connection. (DWDM only; refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide.)

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

OCHNC Dir—The direction of the OCHNC, either East to West or West to East. (DWDM only; refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide.)

Protection—The type of circuit protection. See Table 21-1 for a list of protection types.

Table 21-1 Circuit Protection Types 

Protection Type
Description

1+1

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

2F BLSR

The circuit is protected by a two-fiber bidirectional line switched ring (BLSR).

4F BLSR

The circuit is protected by a four-fiber BLSR.

2F-PCA

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

4F-PCA

The circuit is routed on a PCA path on a four-fiber BLSR. PCA circuits are unprotected.

BLSR

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

DRI

The circuit is protected by a dual-ring interconnect (DRI). This is used for both path protection and BLSR DRIs.

N/A

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

PCA

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

Protected

The circuit is protected by diverse SONET topologies, for example, a BLSR and a path protection, or a path protection and 1+1.

Splitter

The circuit is protected by the protect transponder (TXPP_MR_2.5G) splitter protection. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide.

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 BLSR or 1+1 protection group.

Path protection

The circuit is protected by a path protection.

Y-Cable

The circuit is protected by a transponder or muxponder card Y-cable protection group. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide.


Status—The circuit status. Table 21-2 lists the circuit statuses that can appear.

Table 21-2 Cisco ONS 15454 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, an 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"/STS/VT. (The port name will appear in quotes.) Node and slot will always appear; port "port name"/STS/VT 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 (3c, 6c, 12c, etc.), STSs used in the circuit are indicated by an ellipsis, for example, "S7..9," (STSs 7, 8, and 9) or S10..12 (STS 10, 11, and 12).

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

# of VLANS—The number of VLANs used by an Ethernet circuit.

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

State—The circuit service state, IS, OOS, or OOS-PARTIAL. The circuit service state is an aggregate of the service states of its cross-connects:

IS—All cross-connects are in the In-Service and Normal (IS-NR) service state.

OOS—All cross-connects are in the Out-of-Service and Management, Disabled (OOS-MA,DSBLD) and/or Out-of-Service and Management, Maintenance (OOS-MA,MT) service state.

OOS-PARTIAL—At least one cross-connect is IS-NR and others are OOS-MA,DSBLD and/or OOS-MA,MT.

Step 3 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).


DLP-A417 View the BLSR Squelch Table

Purpose

This task allows you to view the BLSR squelch table for an ONS 15454 BLSR node. The table shows STSs that will be squelched for every isolated node. Squelching replaces traffic by the appropriate path alarm indication signal (AIS); it prevents traffic misconnections when a working channel service contends for access to a protection channel time slot carrying extra traffic. For more information about BLSR squelching, refer to Telcordia GR-1230.

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

Step 2 Click the BLSR whose squelch table you want to view.

Step 3 Click Squelch Table. In the BLSR Squelch Table window you can view the following information:

STS Number—Shows the BLSR STS numbers. For two-fiber BLSRs, the number of STSs is half the BLSR OC-N, for example, an OC-48 BLSR squelch table will show 24 STSs. For four-fiber BLSRs, the number of STSs in the table is the same as the BLSR OC-N.

West Source—If traffic is received by the node on its west span, the BLSR node ID of the source appears. (To view the BLSR node IDs for all nodes in the ring, click the Ring Map button.)

West Dest—If traffic is sent on the node's west span, the BLSR node ID of the destination appears.

East Source—If traffic is received by the node on its east span, the BLSR node ID of the source appears.

East Dest—If traffic is sent on the node's east span, the BLSR node ID of the destination appears.


Note BLSR squelching is performed on STSs that carry STS circuits only. Squelch table entries will not appear for STSs carrying VT circuits or Ethernet circuits to or from E-Series Ethernet cards provisioned in a multicard Ethergroup.


Step 4 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

Always (Grant Always)—Installs the public-key certificate and does not delete it after the session is over. Cisco recommends this option.

More Details (View Certificate)—Allows you to view the public-key security certificate.

Step 2 If the Login dialog box appears, continue with Step 3. If the Change Java Policy File dialog box appears, complete this step. The Change Java Policy File dialog box appears if CTC finds a modified Java policy file (.java.policy) on your PC. In Software Release 4.0 and earlier, the Java policy file was modified to allow CTC software files to be downloaded to your PC. The modified Java policy file is not needed in Software R4.1 and later, so you can remove it unless you will log into ONS 15454s running software earlier than R4.1. Choose one of the following options:

Yes—Removes the modified Java policy file from your PC. Choose this option if you will only log into ONS 15454s running Software R4.1 software or later.

No—Does not remove the modified Java policy file from your PC. Choose this option if you will log into ONS 15454s running Software R4.0 or earlier. If you choose No, this dialog box will appear every time you log into the ONS 15454. If you do not want it to appear, check the Do not show the message again check box.


Caution If you delete the Java policy file, you cannot log into nodes running Software R4.0 and earlier. If you delete the file and want to log into an ONS 15454 running an earlier release, insert the software CD for the release into your PC CD-ROM and run the CTC setup wizard to reinstall the Java policy file.

Step 5 To provision a Custom flow control watermark:

a. Choose Custom from the drop-down list.

b. In the Flow Ctrl Lo column, click the cell in the row for the appropriate port.

c. Enter a value in the cell. The Flow Ctrl Lo value has a valid range from 1 to 510 and must be lower than the Flow Ctrl Hi value.

This value sets the flow control threshold for sending the signal to the attached Ethernet device to resume transmission.

d. In the Flow Ctrl Hi column, click the cell in the row for the appropriate port.

e. Enter a value in the cell. The Flow Ctrl Hi value has a valid range from 2 to 511 and must be higher than the Flow Ctrl Lo value.

This value sets the flow control threshold for sending the signal to the attached Ethernet device to pause transmission.

f. Click Apply.


Note Low watermarks are optimum for low latency subrate applications, such as voice-over-IP (VoIP) using an STS-1. High watermarks are optimum when the attached Ethernet device has insufficient buffering, best effort traffic, or long access line lengths.

Step 3 Click the Provisioning > Line tabs.

Step 4 Record on paper the byte in the BLSR Ext Byte column.

Step 5 Repeat Steps 2 through 4 for the second OC-48 AS trunk card.

Step 6 If the node at the other end of the new span contains OC-48 AS trunk cards, repeat Steps 1 through 5 at the node. If it does not have OC-48 AS cards, their trunk cards are mapped to the K3 extension byte. Continue with Step 7.

Step 7 If the trunk cards on each end of the new span are mapped to the same BLSR extension byte, continue with Step 8. If they are not the same, remap the extension byte of the trunk cards at one of the nodes. See the "DLP-A89 Remap the K3 Byte" task.

Step 8 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

Note The Cisco OC-3 IR/STM-1 SH, OC-12 IR/STM-4 SH, and OC-48 IR/STM-16 SH interface optics, all working at 1310 nm, are optimized for the most widely used SMF-28 fiber, available from many suppliers.



Note Corning MetroCor fiber is optimized for optical interfaces that transmit at 1550 nm or in the C and L DWDM windows. This fiber targets interfaces with higher dispersion tolerances than those found in OC-3 IR/STM-1 SH, OC-12 IR/STM-4 SH, and OC-48 IR/STM-16 SH interface optics. If you are using Corning MetroCor fiber, the interface optics for these cards will become dispersion limited before they will become attenuation limited. In this case, consider using OC-3 LR/STM-1 LH, OC-12 LR/STM-4 LH, and OC-48 LR/STM-16 LH cards instead of OC-3 IR/STM-1 SH, OC-12 IR/STM-4 SH, and OC-48 IR/STM-16 SH cards.



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



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

Step 2 Align the keyed ridge of the cable connector with the transmit (Tx) connector of a working OC-N card at one node and plug the other end of the fiber into the receive (Rx) connector of a working OC-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). Figure 19-1 shows the cable location.

Step 3 Repeat Steps 1 and 2 for the corresponding protect ports on the two nodes and all other working/protect port pairs that you want to place in a 1+1 configuration.

Step 4 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

External 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 the 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.


Note The SOCKS proxy server is automatically enabled when you enable secure mode.


Step 9 Click Finish.

Within the next 30 to 40 seconds, the TCC2P cards reboot. CTC switches to network view, and the CTC Alerts dialog box appears. In network view, the node color changes to grey and a DISCONNECTED condition appears.

Step 10 In the CTC Alerts dialog box, click Close. Wait for the reboot to finish (this might take several minutes).

Step 11 After the DISCONNECTED condition clears, complete the following steps to suppress the backplane IP address from display in CTC and the LCD. If you do not want to suppress the backplane IP address display, continue with Step 12.

a. Display the node in node view.

b. Click the Provisioning > Security > Data Comm tabs.

c. In the LCD IP Setting field, choose Suppress Display. This removes the IP address from display on the ONS 15454 LCD.

Note CTC only permits you to change the state of a non-Link Capacity Adjustment Scheme (LCAS) member if the new state matches the In Group VCAT state of the other members, or if the new state is an Out of Group VCAT state. The In Group VCAT state indicates that a member has cross-connects in the IS-NR; OOS-MA,AINS; or OOS-AU,MT service states. For non-LCAS VCAT members, the Out of Group VCAT state is the OOS-MA,DSBLD service state.



Step 1 In node or network view, click the Circuits tab.

Step 2 Click the VCAT circuit that you want to edit, then click Edit.

Step 3 Click the Members tab.

Step 4 Select the member that you want to change. To choose multiple members, press Ctrl and click each member.

Step 5 From the Tools menu, choose Set Circuit State.


Note You can also change the state for all members listed in the Edit Circuit window using the State tab. Another alternative is to click the Edit Member button to access the Edit Member Circuit window for the selected member, and click the State tab.


Step 6 From the Target Circuit Admin State drop-down list, choose the administrative state:

IS—Puts the member cross-connects in the IS-NR service state.

OOS,DSBLD—Puts the member cross-connects in the OOS-MA,DSBLD service state. Traffic is not passed on the circuit.

IS,AINS—Puts the member cross-connects in the OOS-AU,AINS service state and suppresses alarms and conditions. When the connections receive a valid signal, the service state automatically changes to IS-NR.

OOS,MT—Puts the member cross-connects in the OOS-MA,MT service state. The maintenance state does not interrupt traffic flow; it suppresses alarms and conditions and allows loopbacks to be performed on the circuit. Use OOS,MT for circuit testing or to suppress circuit alarms temporarily. Change the administrative state to IS; IS,AINS; or OOS,DSBLD when testing is complete.

OOS,OOG—(LCAS and Software-Link Capacity Adjustment Scheme [Sw-LCAS] VCAT only.) Puts VCAT member cross-connects in the Out-of-Service and Management, Out-of-Group (OOS-MA,OOG) service state. This administrative state is used to put a member circuit out of the group and to stop sending traffic.

Step 7 Click Apply.

Step 8 To close the Edit Circuit window, choose Close from the File menu.

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 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 (FC/FICON) Switch E ports.

Credits Available

Sets the number of credits if an 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 FC/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.

GFP Buffers Available

Sets the GFP buffer depth. GFP Buffers Available is editable if Autoadjust GFP Buffer Threshold is unchecked. For shorter SONET transport distances, Cisco recommends lower values to decrease latency. For longer SONET transport distances, Cisco recommends higher values to provide higher bandwidth.
