Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide or the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide for procedures.


Note If OSC terminations are created, there will be two alarms, one for low power on the Optical Booster (OPT-BST) card, and the other an OSC channel alarm.


Step 4 In node view, click the Provisioning > WDM-ANS > Port Status tabs. Verify that all statuses under Link Status are listed as Success - Changed, Success - Unchanged, or Not Applicable. If any are not, complete the "NTP-G37 Run Automatic Node Setup" procedure on page 3-73.

Step 5 Create a physical loopback on the west or terminal OPT-BST amplifier by using a patch cord with 10-dB bulk attenuators to connect the LINE TX port to the LINE RX port.


Note An "SDCC Termination Failure" alarm will appear due to the OSC signal loopback.


Step 6 Verify that the OSC link becomes active on the west Optical Service Channel Module (OSCM) or Optical Service Channel and Combiner/Separator Module (OSC-CSM). (The OSC termination must already be provisioned. If not, complete the "NTP-G38 Provision OSC Terminations and Ring ID" procedure on page 3-74.)

Step 7 Set the tunable laser or the TXP_MR_2.5G card to the first wavelength (1530.33 nm) of the 100-GHz ITU-T grid. Refer to the tunable laser manufacturer's documentation or the "DLP-G268 Provision TXP_MR_2.5G Cards for Acceptance Testing" task.

Step 8 Connect the tunable laser transmitter or TXP_MR_2.5G card DWDM TX port to the CHAN RX 01 port on the west (or terminal) 32-Channel Multiplexer (32MUX-O) card using the available patch panel.

Step 9 Display the west (or terminal) 32MUX-O card in card view.

Step 10 Click the Provisioning > Optical Chn > Parameters tabs.

Step 11 Change the Port 1 Admin State to OOS,MT (ANSI) or Locked,maintenance (ETSI).

Step 12 Verify that the Port 1 power level reaches the provisioned VOA (variable optical attenuator) Power Ref setpoint.


Note The tunable laser minimum output optical power (Pout) must be 6 dBm. If the output power is lower than the specified value, the 32MUX-O card might not reach the provisioned setpoint.


Step 13 If an OPT-BST card is installed, complete the "DLP-G79 Verify the OPT-BST Amplifier Laser and Power" task on the west (or terminal side) OPT-BST to ensure that the amplifier is working properly.

Step 14 Complete the "DLP-G80 Verify the OPT-PRE Amplifier Laser and Power" task on the west (or terminal) OPT-PRE to ensure that the amplifier is working properly.

Step 15 Restore the default IS,AINS (ANSI) or Unlocked,automaticInService (ETSI) admin state to the 32MUX-O port that was changed to OOS,MT (ANSI) or Locked,maintenance (ETSI) in Step 11.

Step 16 Repeat Steps 7 through 15 for the remaining 32 wavelengths of the 100-Ghz grid to verify the correct behavior of all VOAs inside the 32MUX-O card.

Step 17 Remove the loopback created in Step 5.

Step 18 If the node is a hub node, repeat Steps 5 through 17 for the east side cards.

Step 19 Complete the "NTP-G37 Run Automatic Node Setup" procedure on page 3-73 to restore the original configuration.

Note This procedure creates an optical loopback on the OPT-BST line. An optical signal is sent from the 32WSS input (add) to the OPT-BST common RX and back out the OPT-BST TX line. The OPT-BST line receives the looped signal from the OPT-BST TX. It then passes the signal to the OPT-BST common TX and into the OPT-PRE common RX. The OPT-PRE sends the signal to the 32DMX. The optical signal from the tunable laser or TXP_MR_2.5G must pass successfully through the 32WSS and out the 32DMX.



Step 1 Complete the "DLP-G46 Log into CTC" task at the hub or terminal node that you want to test. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.

Step 2 Display the terminal node in node view.

Step 3 Click the Alarms tab.

a. Verify that the alarm filter is not on. See the "DLP-G128 Disable Alarm Filtering" task on page 8-27 as necessary.

b. Verify that no equipment (EQPT) alarms appear indicating equipment failure or other hardware problems. If equipment failure alarms appear, investigate and resolve them before continuing. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide or the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide for procedures.


Note If OSC terminations are created, an OSC channel alarm will appear.


Step 4 In node view, click the Provisioning > WDM-ANS > Port Status tabs. Verify that all statuses under Link Status are listed as Success - Changed, Success - Unchanged, or Not Applicable. If any are not, or if errors (indicated in red) appear, delete the OSC channels and complete the "NTP-G37 Run Automatic Node Setup" procedure on page 3-73. Provision the OSC channels when complete.

Step 5 Create a physical loopback on the OPT-BST or OCSM or OSC-CSM amplifier by using a patch cord with 10-dB bulk attenuators to connect the LINE TX port to the LINE RX port.


Note An "SDCC Termination Failure" alarm will appear due to the OSC signal loopback. This is observed as an alarm on Port 1 of the OSCM or OSC-CSM card.


Step 6 Wait 90 seconds, then verify that the OSC link is active on the west Optical Service Channel Module (OSCM) or Optical Service Channel and Combiner/Separator Module (OSC-CSM) by observing whether or not the LOS alarm on the OSCM or OSC-CSM and the OPT-BST card (if present) clears. (The OSC Termination must already be provisioned. If not, complete the "NTP-G38 Provision OSC Terminations and Ring ID" procedure on page 3-74.)

Step 7 If you are using a tunable laser, follow the manufacturer's instructions to complete the following steps. If you are using a TXP_MR_2.5G card, continue with Step 8.

NTP-G43 Perform the ROADM Node Acceptance Test

Purpose

The ROADM node acceptance test verifies that the node is operating properly before you connect it to the network. The test verifies that each add/drop and pass-through port on the 32WSS and 32DMX card operates properly and verifies the operation of the amplifiers. The test also checks the power levels at each transmit and receive port to ensure that power loss in the cabling is within tolerance.

Tools/Equipment

A tunable laser or eight TXP cards covering the 32 C-band wavelengths (see Table 4-1)

An optical power meter or optical spectrum analyzer

2 bulk attenuators (10 dB) LC

Note Because the node is isolated and no line-side fibers are connected during the test, the power levels going into the line-side components will not be the same as a real network setup. Therefore, if the ROADM shelf does not contain OPT-BST and OPT-PRE amplifiers on both the east and west sides, you must lower the OPT-PRE power thresholds so it turns on properly. At the end of the test, you will run automatic node setup to configure the node with the correct parameters for the network acceptance test.



Step 1 Make a copy of Table 4-2 and place it in a convenient location for reference throughout this procedure. The table shows the 32WSS ports and wavelengths assigned to them. The 32 wavelengths are divided among four physical MPO connectors on the 32WSS card. Each MPO connector is assigned eight wavelengths. In CTC, the MPO connector appears in the card view Provisioning > Optical Connector subtab. Each Optical Connector subtab represents an MPO connector. Ports 1 through 32 are the receive (RX) ports; Ports 33 through 64 are the pass-through (PT) ports.

DLP-G310 Verify ROADM Node Pass-Through Channels

Purpose

This procedure verifies the signal flow through a ROADM node for pass-through channels. Configuring a channel pass-through mode means the channel passes through both 32WSS cards. The channel passes through the first 32WSS from the COM RX port to the EXP TX port. In the second 32WSS, the channel goes from the EXP RX port to the COM TX port. The channel is not terminated inside the node.

Tools/Equipment

A tunable laser or eight TXP_MR_2.5G cards covering the 32 C-band wavelengths (see Table 4-1)

Step 1 Complete the "DLP-G46 Log into CTC" task at the OADM node where you want to perform the acceptance test. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.

Step 2 From the View menu, choose Go to Network View.

Step 3 Click the Alarms tab.

a. Verify that the alarm filter is not on. See the "DLP-G128 Disable Alarm Filtering" task on page 8-27 as necessary.

b. Verify that no equipment (EQPT) alarms appear indicating equipment failure or other hardware problems. If equipment failure alarms appear, investigate and resolve them before continuing. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide or the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide for procedures.

Step 4 In node view, click the Provisioning > WDM-ANS > Port Status tabs. Verify that all statuses under Link Status are Success - Changed, Success - Unchanged, or Not Applicable. If not, complete the "NTP-G37 Run Automatic Node Setup" procedure on page 3-73.

Step 5 Check your Cisco MetroPlanner site configuration file to verify the presence of added and dropped bands (including four channels at 100 GHz) configured in pass-through mode in either direction.


Note Configuring a band in pass-through mode means the band is dropped in one direction by an AD-xB-xx.x card on one side (east or west) of the node, then added by another AD-xB-x.xx card on the opposite side in the same direction. The band is not terminated inside the node.


Step 6 If no bands are configured in pass-through mode, continue with Step 7. If a band is configured in pass-through mode, mark it and skip the related optical test for the express, add, and drop sections. Band pass-through connections are verified separately.

Step 7 Check the site configuration file from Cisco MetroPlanner to verify the presence of dropped or added channels configured in pass-through mode in either direction.


Note Configuring a channel in pass-through mode means the channel is dropped in one direction by an AD-xC-xx.x card on one side (east or west) of the node, then added by another AD-xC x.xx card on the opposite side in the same direction. The channel is not terminated inside the node.


Step 8 If no channels are configured in pass-through mode, continue with Step 9. If a channel is configured in pass-through mode, mark it and skip the related optical test for the express, add, and drop sections. Channel pass-through connections are verified separately.

Step 9 Create a loopback on the west OPT-BST by connecting the LINE TX port to the LINE RX port using a patch cord and 10-dB bulk attenuator.

Step 10 Verify that the OSC link becomes active on the west OSCM card. (The OSC termination must be already provisioned. If not, complete the "NTP-G38 Provision OSC Terminations and Ring ID" procedure on page 3-74.) If the OSC link becomes active, continue with Step 11. If the OSC link does not turn up, complete the following steps:

a. Modify the OSC Fail Low thresholds. Click the Provisioning > Optical Line > Optics Thresholds tabs and change the Port 4 opwrMin (minimum power) to -40 dBm.

b. Modify the COM TX Fail Low Threshold. Change the Port 2 opwrMin (minimum power) to -30 dBm.

c. If the OSC link turns up, continue with Step 11. If the OSC link is still down, disconnect the OSCM card from the OPT-BST.

d. Create a loopback on the OSCM card by connecting patch cable from the OSC TX port to the OSC RX port using a 10-dB bulk attenuator.

e. If the OSC link turns up, replace the OPT-BST card. If the OSC link does not turn up, replace the OSCM card.


Note Due to the OSC signal loopback, an SDCC Termination Failure alarm might be raised.


Step 11 If the node has express bands or channels, complete the "DLP-G85 Verify Express Channel Connections on an OADM Node with OSCM Cards" task. If the node does not have express bands or channels, continue with Step 12.

Step 12 If connections configured in pass-through mode are present (noted inSteps 5 and 7), complete the "DLP-G89 Verify OADM Node Pass-Through Channel Connections" task. If not, continue with Step 13.

Step 13 If connections have add/drop connections, complete the "DLP-G93 Verify Add and Drop Connections on an OADM Node with OSCM Cards" task.
