Step 6 On the SOCKS Proxy Server Settings page, choose one of the following:

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 data communications channel (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.

Proxy-only—If selected, the ONS 15454 responds to CTC requests with a list of DCC-connected nodes for which the node serves as a proxy. The CTC computer is visible to other DCC-connected nodes. The node does not prevent traffic from being routed between the DCC and LAN port.

Step 7 Click Finish.

Within the next 30 to 40 seconds, the TCC2Ps reboot. CTC switches to network view, and the CTC Alerts dialog box appears. In network view, the node changes to grey and a DISCONNECTED condition appears.

Step 3 Remove the physical pass-through cabling. Click the Provisioning > WDM-ANS > Connections tabs to identify the card ports to be removed. The pass-through connection that you are removing can be connected in both OADM and hub nodes.

For a hub node—Connect the 32DMX-O or 32DMX output port to the 32MUX-O input port.

For an OADM node—Connect the AD-xC-xx.x drop (TX) port to the AD-xC-xx.x add (RX) port.

Step 4 Physically connect the proper client interface to the correct add and drop ports.

Step 5 Delete the filter connections related to the pass-through connection that is being converted to an add/drop connection:

a. In node view, click the Provisioning > WDM-ANS > Port Status tabs.

b. Highlight the pass-through connections between ITU channel add and drop ports filters.

c. Click Delete.

Step 6 Create two new unidirectional OCHNCs (one heading east, the other heading west) to support the new add/drop channels. See the "DLP-G105 Provision DWDM Optical Channel Network Connections" task.

Step 7 As necessary, complete the "DLP-G99 Create a Provisionable Patchcord" task on page 6-10.

Step 8 As necessary, add an optical attenuator between the channel TX port of the OADM, 4MD-xx.x, or 32DMX-O card and the DWDM RX port on the TXP, MXP, or OC-N line card.


Note If the channel is coming from a 32DMX-O, the optical power can be adjusted in CTC by modifying the value of the internal per-channel VOA.


Step 9 (Optional) The following verification steps might be needed for an intermediate node when a pass-through connection is converted:

a. Verify that the received channels are at the specified power level. See the "G76 Verify Span Loss" procedure for instructions.

b. Verify that the added channels are equalized with the express channels within +/-1 dB.

c. If the channels are not equalized with the express channels within +/-1 dB, check the attenuation of the VOAs.
