Note The terms "Unidirectional Path Switched Ring" and "UPSR" may appear in Cisco literature. These terms do not refer to using Cisco ONS 15xxx products in a unidirectional path switched ring configuration. Rather, these terms, as well as "Path Protected Mesh Network" and "PPMN," refer generally to Cisco's path protection feature, which may be used in any topological network configuration. Cisco does not recommend using its path protection feature in any particular topological network configuration.


This chapter explains how to install the Cisco ONS 15454 cards and fiber-optic cable (fiber).

1 This identifies 1:N cards that operate as normal DS1 or DS3 cards when installed in certain slots.

2 This DS3 card cannot be used in this slot if used with a high-density EIA or in a 1:N configuration.


Stop. You have completed this procedure.


NTP-A16 Install the OC-N Cards

Purpose

This procedure describes how to install optical (OC-N) cards (OC-3, OC-12, OC-48, and OC-192).

Tools/Equipment

OC-3, OC-12, OC-48, and OC-192 cards (as applicable)

Prerequisite Procedures

A15 Install the Common Control Cards

Required/As Needed

As needed

Onsite/Remote

Onsite

Security Level

None



Warning During this procedure, wear grounding wrist straps to avoid ESD damage to the card. Do not directly touch the backplane with your hand or any metal tool, or you could shock yourself. Statement 94



Warning Class I (CDRH) and Class 1M (IEC) laser products. Statement 1055



Warning Invisible laser radiation could be emitted from the end of the unterminated fiber cable or connector. Do not stare into the beam 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 could pose an eye hazard. Statement 1056



Warning Use of controls, adjustments, or performing procedures other than those specified may result in hazardous radiation exposure. Statement 1057



Warning On all OC-N cards except the OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 card, the laser is on even when the optical port is not in service.



Warning On the OC-192 card, the laser is on when the card is booted and the safety key is in the on position (labeled 1). The port does not have to be in service for the laser to be on. The laser is off when the safety key is off (labeled 0). Statement 293



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 To simplify path protection to bidirectional line switched ring (BLSR) conversion and node addition, install OC-N cards according to a high-speed east (Slots 12 and 13) and west (Slots 5 and 6) configuration. This configuration is not mandatory.



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



Note During the boot process, an out-of-service (OOS) OC-N port will output a Line Alarm Indication Signal (AIS-L) to any in-service (IS) far-end receivers. See the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide for further information about the AIS-L condition.



Step 1 If you installed XC or XCVT cards, review Table 2-1 to determine card/slot compatibility. If you installed XC10G cards, review Table 2-2 to determine card/slot compatibility.

Install higher-capacity cards first; for example, install an OC-192 card before installing an OC-48 card. Let each card completely boot before installing the next card.

Step 2 Open the card latches/ejectors.

Step 3 Use the latches/ejectors to firmly slide the OC-N 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 "A116 Remove and Replace a Card" procedure.


Step 4 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 5 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 becomes amber. The signal fail (SF) LED can persist until all card ports connect to their far end counterparts and a signal is present.

Step 6 If the card does not boot up properly, or the LED activity does not mimic Step 5, 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 an OC-N card does not boot, open CTC and ensure that the slot is not provisioned for a different card type before assuming 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 2 to 5.

Step 7 Continue with the "A247 Install Fiber-Optic Cables on OC-N Cards" procedure.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.


NTP-A17 Install the Electrical Cards

Warning During this procedure, wear grounding wrist straps to avoid ESD damage to the card. Do not directly touch the backplane with your hand or any metal tool, or you could shock yourself. Statement 94



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.


Caution Do not install low-density DS-1 cards in the same side of the shelf as DS3/EC1-48 or DS3XM-12 cards.


Caution Do not install a DS3/EC1-48 in Slots 1 or 2 if you have installed an MXP_2.5G_10G card in Slot 3. Likewise, do not install a DS3/EC1-48 in Slots 16 or 17 if you have installed an MXP_2.5G_10G card in Slot 15. If you do, the cards will interact and cause DS-3 bit errors.


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



Note Install higher-capacity cards first; for example, install a DS-3 card before installing a DS-1 card. Let each card boot completely before installing the next card.



Note If you are installing OC-N, TXP, or MXP cards, Cisco recommends that you install these before you install electrical cards, as applicable.



Step 1 If you installed XC or XCVT cards, review Table 2-1 to determine card/slot compatibility. If you installed XC10G cards, review Table 2-2 to determine card/slot compatibility.

Step 2 Open the card latches/ejectors.

Step 3 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.


Note If you install the wrong card in a slot, complete the "A116 Remove and Replace a Card" procedure.


Step 4 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 5 Verify the LED activity:

The red FAIL LED turns on for 10 to 15 seconds.

The red FAIL LED blinks for 30 to 40 seconds.

All LEDs blink once and turn off for 1 to 5 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 6 If the card does not boot up properly, or the LED activity does not mimic Step 5, check the following:

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 2 to 5.

Step 7 Continue with the "A246 Install Ethernet Cards and Connectors" procedure if necessary.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.


NTP-A246 Install Ethernet Cards and Connectors

Warning Class I (CDRH) and Class 1M (IEC) laser products. Statement 1055



Warning Invisible laser radiation could be emitted from the end of the unterminated fiber cable or connector. Do not stare into the beam 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 could pose an eye hazard. Statement 1056



Warning Use of controls, adjustments, or performing procedures other than those specified may result in hazardous radiation exposure. Statement 1057



Warning On all OC-N cards except someOC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 cards, the laser is on even when the optical port is not in service. If an OC-192 card has a safety key, the laser is on when the card is booted and the safety key is in the on position (labeled 1). The port does not have to be in service for the laser to be on. The laser is off when the safety key is off (labeled 0).



Warning Laser radiation presents an invisible hazard, so personnel should avoid exposure to the laser beam. Personnel must be qualified in laser safety procedures and must use proper eye protection before working on this equipment. Statement 300



Caution Do not use fiber loopbacks with the OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 or OC192 LR/STM64 LH ITU 15xx.xx card unless you are using a 20-dB attentuator. Never connect a direct fiber loopback. Using fiber loopbacks causes irreparable damage to the OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 or OC192 LR/STM64 LH ITU 15xx.xx card.


Caution Do not use fiber loopbacks with the OC192 IR/STM64 SH 1550 card unless you are using a 5-dB attentuator. Never connect a direct, unattenuated fiber loopback. Using unattenuated fiber loopbacks causes irreparable damage to the OC192 IR/STM64 SH 1550 card.


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 Fiber boots are not recommended for OC192 cards or OC48AS cards because of the downward angle of the optical ports.



Note The G1000 port will go into service if you connect a transmit fiber from an OC-48 or OC-192 card to the receive GBIC port on the G1000 card. Any laser light source will cause the port to change states.



Note You can install the fiber immediately after installing the cards, or wait until you are ready to turn up the network. See Chapter 5, "Turn Up Network."
