Turn Up a Node


This chapter explains how to provision a single Cisco ONS 15454 dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) node and turn it up for service, including node name, date and time, timing references, network attributes such as IP address and default router, users and user security, card installation, and DWDM connections.


Note Procedures in this chapter require that you have a network plan calculated for your DWDM network with Cisco MetroPlanner, Release 2.5. Cisco MetroPlanner is a DWDM planning tool that is available from your Cisco account representative. Cisco MetroPlanner prepares a shelf plan for each network node and calculates the power and attenuation levels for the DWDM cards installed in the node. For information about Cisco MetroPlanner, contact your Cisco account representative. For more information about MetroPlanner, refer to the Cisco MetroPlanner DWDM Installation and Operations Guide, Release 2.5.



Note Unless otherwise specified, "ONS 15454" refers to both ANSI (ONS 15454) and ETSI (ONS 15454 SDH) shelf assemblies.



Note Procedures in the chapter must be completed at every shelf (node) at your site.

Step 1 Complete the "DLP-G46 Log into CTC" task for the node you will turn up. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.

Step 2 In node view, click the Provisioning > General tabs.

Step 3 Enter the following information in the fields listed:

Node Name—Type a name for the node. For TL1 compliance, names must begin with an alpha character and have no more than 20 alphanumeric (a-z, A-Z, 0-9) characters.


Note To avoid errors when you import the Cisco MetroPlanner configuration file in the "G138 Import a Cisco MetroPlanner Configuration File" procedure, the CTC node name and the MetroPlanner site name should be the same or at least easy to identify.


Contact—Type the name of the node contact person and the phone number, up to 255 characters (optional).

Latitude—Enter the node latitude: N (north) or S (south), degrees, and minutes (optional).

Longitude—Enter the node longitude: E (east) or W (west), degrees, and minutes (optional).

CTC uses the latitude and longitude to position ONS 15454 icons on the network view map. To convert a coordinate in degrees to degrees and minutes, multiply the number after the decimal by 60. For example, the latitude 38.250739 converts to 38 degrees, 15 minutes (0.250739 x 60 = 15.0443, rounded to the nearest whole number).

Description—Type a description of the node. The description can be a maximum of 255 characters.

Use NTP/SNTP Server—When checked, CTC uses a Network Time Protocol (NTP) or Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) server to set the date and time of the node.

If you do not use an SNTP or NTP server, complete the Date and Time fields. The ONS 15454 will use these fields for alarm dates and times. By default, CTC displays all alarms in the CTC computer time zone for consistency. To change the display to the node time zone, complete the "DLP-G118 Display Alarms and Conditions Using Time Zone" task on page 8-10


Note Using an NTP or SNTP server ensures that all ONS 15454 network nodes use the same date and time reference. The server synchronizes the node's time after power outages or software upgrades.


If you check the Use NTP/SNTP Server check box, type the IP address of one of the following:

An NTP/SNTP server connected to the ONS 15454

Another ONS 15454 with NTP/SNTP enabled that is connected to the ONS 15454

If you check gateway network element (GNE) for the ONS 15454 SOCKS proxy server (see "DLP-G56 Provision IP Settings" task), external ONS 15454 nodes must reference the gateway ONS 15454 for NTP/SNTP timing. For more information about the ONS 15454 gateway settings, see Chapter 20, "CTC Connectivity Reference."


Caution If you reference another ONS 15454 for the NTP/SNTP server, make sure the second ONS 15454 references an NTP/SNTP server and not the first ONS 15454 (that is, do not create an NTP/SNTP timing loop by having two ONS 15454 nodes reference each other).

Date—If Use NTP/SNTP Server is not checked, type the current date in the format m/d/yyyy, for example, September 24, 2002 is 9/24/2002.

Time—If Use NTP/SNTP Server is not checked, type the current time in the format hh:mm:ss, for example, 11:24:58. The ONS 15454 uses a 24-hour clock, so 10:00 PM is entered as 22:00:00.

Time Zone—Click the field and choose a city within your time zone from the drop-down list. The menu displays the 80 World Time Zones from -11 through 0 (GMT) to +14. Continental United States time zones are GMT-05:00 (Eastern), GMT-06:00 (Central), GMT-07:00 (Mountain), and GMT-08:00 (Pacific).

Use Daylight Savings Time—Check this check box if the time zone that you chose is using Daylight Savings Time.

Insert AIS-V on STS-1 SD-P—Not used in DWDM networks.

SD-P BER—Not used in DWDM networks.

Step 4 Click Apply.

Step 5 In the confirmation dialog box, click Yes.

Step 6 Review the node information. If you need to make corrections, repeat Steps 3 through 5 to enter the corrections. If the information is correct, continue with the "G25 Set Power Monitor Thresholds" procedure.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.


NTP-G25 Set Power Monitor Thresholds

Purpose

This procedure provisions extreme high, extreme low, and low input battery power thresholds within a -48 volts direct current (VDC) environment. When the thresholds are crossed, the TCC2/TCC2P generates warning alarms in CTC. For ONS 15454 power specifications, see Appendix B, "Hardware Specifications."

Step 1 Complete the "DLP-G46 Log into CTC" task. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.

Step 2 Complete the "DLP-G56 Provision IP Settings" task to provision the ONS 15454 IP address, subnet mask, default router, DHCP server, IIOP listener port, and SOCKS proxy server settings.


Tip If you cannot log into the node, you can change its IP address, default router, and network mask by using the LCD on the ONS 15454 fan-tray assembly (unless LCD provisioning is suppressed). See the "DLP-G57 Set the IP Address, Default Router, and Network Mask Using the LCD" task for instructions. However, you cannot use the LCD to provision any other network settings.


Step 3 If TCC2P cards are installed and you want to turn on the ONS 15454 secure mode, which allows two IP addresses to be provisioned for the node, complete the "DLP-G264 Enable Node Security Mode" task.


Note Secure mode is not available if TCC2 cards are installed.


Step 4 If static routes are needed, complete the "DLP-G58 Create a Static Route" task. For more information about static routes, see Chapter 20, "CTC Connectivity Reference."

Step 5 If the ONS 15454 is connected to a LAN or WAN that uses OSPF and you want to share routing information between the LAN/WAN and the ONS network, complete the "DLP-G59 Set Up or Change Open Shortest Path First Protocol" task.

Step 6 If the ONS 15454 is connected to a LAN or WAN that uses RIP, complete the "DLP-G60 Set Up or Change Routing Information Protocol" task.

Caution All network changes should be approved by your network (or LAN) administrator.


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

Step 2 Complete the following information in the fields listed:

IP Address—Type the IP address assigned to the ONS 15454 node.

Suppress CTC IP Display—Check this check box if you want to prevent the node IP address from being displayed in CTC to users with Provisioning, Maintenance, or Retrieve security levels. (The IP address suppression is not applied to users with Superuser security level.)

LCD IP Display—Choose one of the following:

Allow Configuration—Displays the node IP address on the LCD and allows users to change the IP settings using the LCD. This option enables the "DLP-G57 Set the IP Address, Default Router, and Network Mask Using the LCD" task.

Display Only—Displays the node IP address on the LCD but does not allow users to change the IP address using the LCD.

Suppress Display—Suppresses the node IP address display on the LCD.

Default Router—If the ONS 15454 is connected to a LAN, enter the IP address of the default router. The default router forwards packets to network devices that the ONS 15454 cannot directly access. This field is ignored if any of the following are true:

The ONS 15454 is not connected to a LAN.

SOCKS proxy server is enabled and the ONS 15454 is provisioned as an ENE.

OSPF is enabled on both the ONS 15454 and the LAN where the ONS 15454 is connected.

Forward DHCP Request To—Check this check box to enable DHCP. Also, enter the DHCP server IP address in the Request To field. Unchecked is the default. If you will enable any of the gateway settings to implement the ONS 15454 SOCKS proxy server features, leave this field blank.


Note If you enable DHCP, computers connected to an ONS 15454 node can obtain temporary IP addresses from an external DHCP server. The ONS 15454 only forwards DHCP requests; it does not act as a DHCP server.


MAC Address—(Display only) Displays the ONS 15454 IEEE 802 MAC address.

Net/Subnet Mask Length—Type the subnet mask length (decimal number representing the subnet mask length in bits) or click the arrows to adjust the subnet mask length. The subnet mask length is the same for all ONS 15454 nodes in the same subnet.

TCC CORBA (IIOP) Listener Port—Sets the ONS 15454 IIOP (Internet Inter-Orb Protocol) listener port used for communication between the ONS 15454 and CTC computers. This field is generally not changed unless the ONS 15454 resides behind a firewall that requires a different port. See the "G27 Set Up the ONS 15454 for Firewall Access" procedure for more information.

Gateway Settings—Provisions the ONS 15454 SOCKS proxy server features. (SOCKS is a standard proxy protocol for IP-based applications.) Do not change these options until you review the "20.2.7  Scenario 7: Provisioning the ONS 15454 Proxy Server" section on page 20-12. In SOCKS proxy server networks, the ONS 15454 is either an external network element (ENE), a gateway network element (GNE), or a proxy-only server. Provisioning must be consistent for each NE type.

Enable SOCKS proxy server on port—If checked, the ONS 15454 serves as a proxy for connections between CTC clients and ONS 15454 nodes that are connected by data communications channels (DCCs) to the proxy ONS 15454. The CTC client establishes connections to DCC-connected nodes through the proxy node. The CTC client does not require IP connectivity to the DCC-connected nodes, only to the proxy ONS 15454. If Enable SOCKS proxy server on port is off, the node does not proxy for any CTC clients. When this box is checked, you can provision one of the following options:

External Network Element (ENE)—Choose this option when the ONS 15454 is not connected to a LAN but has DCC connections to other ONS nodes. A CTC computer connected to the ENE through the TCC2/TCC2P TCP/IP (craft) port can manage nodes that have DCC connections to the ENE. However, the CTC computer does not have direct IP connectivity to these nodes or to any LAN/WAN that those nodes might be connected to.

Gateway Network Element (GNE)—Choose this option when the ONS 15454 is connected to a LAN and has DCC connections to other nodes. A CTC computer connected to the LAN can manage all nodes that have DCC connections to the GNE, but the CTC computer does not have direct IP connectivity to them. The GNE option isolates the LAN from the DCC network so that IP traffic originating from the DCC-connected nodes and any CTC computers connected to them is prevented from reaching the LAN.

SOCKS Proxy-Only—Choose this option when the ONS 15454 is connected to a LAN and the LAN is separated from the node by a firewall. The SOCKS Proxy Only is the same as the GNE option, except the SOCKS Proxy Only option does not isolate the DCC network from the LAN.

Step 3 Click Apply.

Step 4 Click Yes in the confirmation dialog box.

Both TCC2/TCC2P cards reboot, one at a time. During this time (approximately 5 minutes), the active and standby TCC2/TCC2P card LEDs go through the cycle shown in Table 3-2. Eventually, a "Lost node connection, switching to network view" message appears.

Note This task requires TCC2P cards. The security mode options described in this task will not appear in CTC if TCC2 cards are installed.



Caution The IP address assigned to the TCC2P LAN port must reside on a different subnet from the backplane LAN port and the ONS 15454 default router. Verify that the new TCC2P IP address meets this requirement and is compatible with ONE 15454 network IP addresses.


Note The node will reboot after you complete this task, causing a temporary disconnection between the CTC computer and the node.



Step 1 Click the Provisioning > Security > Data Comm tabs.

Step 2 Click Change Mode.

Step 3 Review the information on the Change Secure Mode wizard page, then click Next.

Step 4 On the TCC Ethernet Port page, enter the IP address and subnet mask for the TCC2P LAN (TCP/IP) port. The IP address cannot reside on the same subnet as the backplane LAN port, nor the ONS 15454 default router.

Step 5 Click Next.

Step 6 On the Backplane Ethernet Port page, modify the backplane IP address, subnet mask, and default router, if needed. (You normally do not modify these fields if no ONS 15454 network changes have occurred.)

Step 7 Click Next.

Step 8 On the SOCKS Proxy Server Settings page, choose one of the following options:

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 30-40 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 10 On the CTC Alerts dialog box, click Close. Wait for the reboot to finish. (This may 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. On the LCD IP Setting field, choose Suppress Display. This removes the IP address from display on the ONS 15454 LCD.

d. Check the Suppress CTC IP Address check box. This removes the IP address from display in the CTC information area and from the Provisioning > Security > Data Comm tab.

e. Click Apply.


Note After you turn on secure mode, the TCC2P IP address becomes the node IP address.


Step 12 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).


DLP-G58 Create a Static Route

Purpose

This task creates a static route to establish CTC connectivity to a computer on another network. This task is performed when:

CTC computers on one subnet need to connect to ONS 15454 nodes that are connected by a router to ONS 15454 nodes residing on another subnet. OSPF is not enabled and the External Network Element gateway setting is not checked.

You need to enable multiple CTC sessions among ONS 15454 nodes residing on the same subnet and the External Network Element gateway setting is not enabled.

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

Step 2 Click the Static Routing tab. Click Create.

Step 3 In the Create Static Route dialog box, enter the following:

Destination—Enter the IP address of the computer running CTC. To limit access to one computer, enter the full IP address and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.255. To allow access to all computers on the 192.168.1.0 subnet, enter 192.168.1.0 and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. You can enter a destination of 0.0.0.0 to allow access to all CTC computers that connect to the router.

Mask—Enter a subnet mask. If the destination is a host route (that is, one CTC computer), enter a 32-bit subnet mask (255.255.255.255). If the destination is a subnet, adjust the subnet mask accordingly, for example, 255.255.255.0. If the destination is 0.0.0.0, CTC automatically enters a subnet mask of 0.0.0.0 to provide access to all CTC computers. You cannot change this value.

Next Hop—Enter the IP address of the router port or the node IP address if the CTC computer is connected to the node directly.

Cost—Enter the number of hops between the ONS 15454 and the computer.

Step 4 Click OK. Verify that the static route appears in the Static Route window.

Required/As Needed

As needed

Onsite/Remote

Onsite or remote

Security Level

Provisioning or higher



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

Step 2 On the top left side of the OSPF pane, complete the following:

DCC/GCC OSPF Area ID Table—In dotted decimal format, enter the number that identifies the ONS 15454 nodes as a unique OSPF area ID. The Area ID can be any number between 000.000.000.000 and 255.255.255.255, but must be unique to the LAN OSPF area.

SDCC Metric—This value is normally unchanged. It sets a cost for sending packets across the Section DCC, which is used by OSPF routers to calculate the shortest path. This value should always be higher than the LAN metric. The default SDCC metric is 100.

LDCC Metric—Sets a cost for sending packets across the Line DCC. This value should always be lower than the SDCC metric. The default LDCC metric is 33. It is usually not changed.

Step 3 In the OSPF on LAN area, complete the following:

OSPF active on LAN—When checked, enables the ONS 15454 OSPF topology to be advertised to OSPF routers on the LAN. Enable this field on ONS 15454 nodes that directly connect to OSPF routers.

LAN Port Area ID—Enter the OSPF area ID (dotted decimal format) for the router port where the ONS 15454 is connected. (This number is different from the DCC/GCC OSPF Area ID.)

Step 4 By default, OSPF is set to No Authentication. If the OSPF router requires authentication, complete the following steps. If not, continue with Step 5.

a. Click the No Authentication button.

b. In the Edit Authentication Key dialog box, complete the following:

Type—Choose Simple Password.

Enter Authentication Key—Enter the password.

Confirm Authentication Key—Enter the same password to confirm it.

c. Click OK.

The authentication button label changes to Simple Password.

Step 5 Provision the OSPF priority and interval settings.

The OSPF priority and interval defaults are the defaults most commonly used by OSPF routers. Verify that these defaults match the ones used by the OSPF router where the ONS 15454 is connected.

Router Priority—Selects the designated router for a subnet.

Hello Interval (sec)—Sets the number of seconds between OSPF hello packet advertisements sent by OSPF routers. Ten seconds is the default.

Dead Interval—Sets the number of seconds that will pass while an OSPF router's packets are not visible before its neighbors declare the router down. Forty seconds is the default.

Transit Delay (sec)—Indicates the service speed. One second is the default.

Retransmit Interval (sec)—Sets the time that will elapse before a packet is resent. Five seconds is the default.

LAN Metric—Sets a cost for sending packets across the LAN. This value should always be lower than the SDCC metric. Ten is the default.

Step 6 Under OSPF Area Range Table, create an area range table if one is needed:


Note Area range tables consolidate the information that is outside an OSPF area border. One ONS 15454 in the ONS 15454 OSPF area is connected to the OSPF router. An area range table on this node points the router to the other nodes that reside within the ONS 15454 OSPF area.


a. Under OSPF Area Range Table, click Create.

b. In the Create Area Range dialog box, enter the following:

Range Address—Enter the area IP address for the ONS 15454 nodes that reside within the OSPF area. For example, if the ONS 15454 OSPF area includes nodes with IP addresses 10.10.20.100, 10.10.30.150, 10.10.40.200, and 10.10.50.250, the range address would be 10.10.0.0.

Range Area ID—Enter the OSPF area ID for the ONS 15454 nodes. This is either the ID in the DCC OSPF Area ID field or the ID in the Area ID for LAN Port field.

Mask Length—Enter the subnet mask length. In the Range Address example, this is 16.

Advertise—Check if you want to advertise the OSPF range table.

c. Click OK.

Step 7 All OSPF areas must be connected to Area 0. If the ONS 15454 OSPF area is not physically connected to Area 0, use the following steps to create a virtual link table that will provide the disconnected area with a logical path to Area 0:

a. Under OSPF Virtual Link Table, click Create.

b. In the Create Virtual Link dialog box, complete the following fields. OSPF settings must match OSPF settings for the ONS 15454 OSPF area:

Neighbor—The router ID of the Area 0 router.

Transit Delay (sec)—The service speed. One second is the default.

Hello Int (sec)—The number of seconds between OSPF hello packet advertisements sent by OSPF routers. Ten seconds is the default.

Auth Type—If the router where the ONS 15454 is connected uses authentication, choose Simple Password. Otherwise, choose No Authentication.

Retransmit Int (sec)—Sets the time that will elapse before a packet is resent. Five seconds is the default.

Dead Int (sec)—Sets the number of seconds that will pass while an OSPF router's packets are not visible before its neighbors declare the router down. Forty seconds is the default.

c. Click OK.

Step 8 After entering ONS 15454 OSPF area data, click Apply.

If you changed the Area ID, the TCC2/TCC2P cards reset, one at a time. The reset takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Table 3-2 shows the LED behavior during the TCC2/TCC2P reset.

Step 9 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

Step 4 Open the card latches/ejectors.

Step 5 Use the latches/ejectors to firmly slide the card along the slot guide rails until the card plugs into the receptacle at the back of the slot.

Step 6 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.


The following LED activity will occur:

The FAIL LED turns on for approximately 35 seconds. During this time, the ACT LED will cycle through various states, and then extinguish.

The FAIL LED blinks for approximately 40 seconds.

All LEDs turn on and then turn off within 5 seconds.

If new software is being downloaded to the card, the ACT and SF LEDs blink for 20 seconds to 3 to 5 minutes, depending on the card type.

The ACT LED turns on.

The signal fail (SF) LED might persist until all card ports connect to their far-end counterparts and a signal is present.

Step 7 If the card does not boot up properly, or the LED activity does not mirror the activity in Step 6, 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 a DWDM card does not boot, open CTC and ensure that the slot is not provisioned for a different card type before assuming that 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. Remove the card and repeat Steps 3 to 6. If the card does not boot up properly the second time, it may be defective. Contact your next level of support.


Note The DWDM node type is determined by the cards that are installed. For example, if two 32DMX-O and two 32MUX-O cards are installed but no AD-xC or AD-xB cards are installed, CTC considers the node a hub node. However, if one 32DMX-O and one 32MUX-O card are installed with no AD-xC or AD-xB cards, CTC considers the node a terminal node. For more information, refer to Chapter 15, "Card Reference."


Step 8 Repeat Steps 3 through 7 until all the DWDM cards are installed in the node.

Step 9 If OPT-PRE cards are installed, complete one of the following steps for each OPT-PRE card based upon the Cisco MetroPlanner shelf layout. If OPT-PRE cards are not installed, you have completed this procedure.

If the Cisco MetroPlanner shelf layout does not include DCUs, install a 4-dB attenuator with a tolerance of +/- 1 dB between the OPT-PRE DC TX and RX ports for each OPT-PRE installed in the shelf.

If the shelf layout includes DCUs, complete the "G31 Install the DWDM Dispersion Compensating Units" procedure for each side of the shelf that requires a DCU.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.

MXP_MR_2.5G

Pairs a working transponder or muxponder card/port with a protect transponder or muxponder card/port. The protect port must be on a different card than the working port and it must be the same card type as the working port. The working and protect port numbers must be the same, that is, Port 1 can only protect Port 1, Port 2 can only protect Port 2, etc.

Splitter

TXPP_MR_2.5G

MXPP_MR_2.5G

A splitter protection group is automatically created when a TXPP_MR_2.5G or MXPP_MR_2.5G card is installed. You can edit the splitter protection group name.


Step 3 Verify that pluggable port modules (PPM) are provisioned for the same payload and payload rate on the TXP and MXP cards where you will create the Y-cable protection group. You can use either of the following methods:

In node view, move your mouse over the TXP or MXP client port. If a PPM is provisioned, two dots appear in the port graphic, and the port and PPM payload and rate appear when you move the mouse over the port.

Display the TXP or MXP card in card view. Click the Provisioning > Pluggable Port Module tabs. Verify that a PPM is provisioned in the Pluggable Port Module area, and the payload type and rate is provisioned for it in the Selected PPM area.

The PPM payload and payload rate must be the same for both TXP or MXP cards. If they are not the same, for example, if the PPM payload and payload rate are not the same, you must either change the provisioned payload rate to match, or replace the PPM (SFP or XFP).

Step 4 In node view, click the Provisioning > Protection tabs.

Step 5 In the Protection Groups area, click Create.

Step 6 In the Create Protection Group dialog box, enter the following:

Name—Type a name for the protection group. The name can have up to 32 alphanumeric (a-z, A-Z, 0-9) characters. Special characters are permitted. For TL1 compatibility, do not use question mark (?), backslash (\), or double quote (") characters.

Type—Choose Y Cable from the drop-down list.

Protect Port—From the drop-down list, choose the port that will be the standby or protection port to the active port. The menu displays the available transponder or muxponder ports. If transponder or muxponder cards are not installed, no ports appear in the drop-down list.

After you choose the protect port, a list of available working ports appear in the Available Ports list, as shown in Figure 3-9. If no cards are available, no ports appear. If this occurs, you can not complete this task until you install the physical cards or preprovision the ONS 15454 slots using the "G29 Preprovision a Slot" procedure.

Figure 3-9 Creating a Y-Cable Protection Group

Step 7 From the Available Ports list, choose the port that will be protected by the port you selected in Protect Ports. Click the top arrow button to move the port to the Working Ports list.

Step 8 Complete the remaining fields:

Revertive—Check this check box if you want traffic to revert to the working port after failure conditions remain corrected for the amount of time entered in the Reversion Time field.

Reversion time—If Revertive is checked, select a reversion time from the drop-down list. The range is 0.5 to 12.0 minutes. The default is 5.0 minutes. Reversion time is the amount of time that will elapse before the traffic reverts to the working card. The reversion timer starts after conditions causing the switch are cleared.

Step 9 Click OK.

Step 10 Repeat this procedure for every protection indicated in the Cisco MetroPlanner Traffic Matrix.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.

Note In this procedure, you will generally connect fibers in an east-to-west or west-to-east pattern. "West" refers to cards and ports in Slots 1 through 8. "East" refers to cards and ports installed in Slots 10 through 17.



Step 1 View the Cisco MetroPlanner Internal Connections table. Figure 3-10 shows an example.

Figure 3-10 Cisco MetroPlanner Internal Connections Table

Step 2 Review the Cisco MetroPlanner Internal Connections table for the node you are provisioning. The table identifies the patch cord that you must cable by their end points. Position 1 identifies the fiber start point; Position 2 indicates the fiber end point. The patch cord end points are identified by site, slot, and port. Information provided by the Internal Connections table includes:

Site—The DWDM network site number for the node where you are provisioning the internal connections.

IP Address—The node IP address.

Position-1—The first position rack, shelf, and slot. For example, Rack#1.Main Shelf.02 refers to Slot 2 in the Main Shelf of Rack #1. Refer to the Cisco MetroPlanner Site Dialog window for rack and shelf names and locations.

Unit-1—The ONS 15454 DWDM card (unit) that is installed in the first position slot.

Port#-1—The port identifier shown in the CTC for the first Position-1 connection.

Port ID-1—The port identifier shown in TL1 for the Position-1 connection.

Port Label-1—The name of the physical port printed on the card's front plate and shown in CTC card view for the Position-1 connection.

Attenuator—Indicates whether attenuation is required.

Patchcord Type—Indicates the level of attenuation that is required, if needed.

Position-2—The second position rack, shelf, and slot. For example, Rack#1.Main Shelf.02 refers to Slot 2 in the Main Shelf of Rack #1. Refer to the Cisco MetroPlanner Site Dialog window for rack and shelf names and locations.

Unit-2—The ONS 15454 DWDM card (unit) that is installed in the Position-2 slot.

Port #2—The port identifier shown in CTC for the first Position-2 connection.

Port ID-2—The port identifier shown in TL1 for the Position-2 connection.

Port Label-2—The name of the physical port printed on the card's front plate and shown in CTC card view for the Position-2 connection.

Manually Set—Indicates whether you must create the connection manually in CTC. A Yes appearing in this column means you must create the connection manually.


Caution Failure to create the required manual connections will prevent the node from turning up properly.

Step 3 Verify that fibers are available to complete the connections shown in the Internal Connections table.

Step 4 Complete the "NTP-G115 Clean Fiber Connectors" procedure on page 12-22 for all fiber connections, even new fiber. Dust particles can degrade performance. Put caps on any fiber connectors that are not used.

Step 5 If you will not perform node acceptance tests for this site, complete the "DLP-G65 Install Fiber-Optic Cables for OSC Link Terminations Between Two Adjacent Nodes" task. Otherwise, continue with Step 6.

Step 6 On the front of the fiber-storage tray (usually installed below the node you are fibering), push the tabs on the left and right sides inward to release the lock on the tray.

Step 7 Pull the fiber-storage tray away from the shelf until it is fully opened.

Step 8 Open the fold-down door that at the bottom of the shelf assembly to expose the cable-routing channel (Figure 14-35 on page 14-37).

Note If you are performing the node acceptance tests in "Perform Node Acceptance Tests," you can perform this task after node acceptance testing is complete.



Note Throughout this task, west refers to Slots 1 through 8, and east refers to Slots 10 through 17.



Step 1 Refer to the Cisco MetroPlanner Internal Connections table (see Table 3-1) for your site when completing OSC connections. Before you begin the OSC connections, read the following rules:

The OPT-BST and the OSC-CSM are the only cards that directly interface with the line (span) fiber.

The OSCM only carries optical service channels, not DWDM channels.

The OSCM and the OSC-CSM cannot both be installed on the same side of the shelf (east or west). You can have different cards on each side, for example an OSCM on the west side and an OSC-CSM on the east side.

When an OPT-BST and an OSC-CSM are both used on the same side of the node, the OPT-BST combines the supervision channel with the DWDM channels and the OSC-CSM acts as an OSCM; it does not carry DWDM traffic.

If an OPT-BST and OSCM card are installed on the east side, the east OPT-BST OSC RX port is connected to the east OSCM TX port, and the east OPT-BST OSC TX port is connected to the east OSCM RX port.

If you have an OPT-BST and OSC-CSM card are installed on the east side, the east OPT-BST OSC RX port is connected to the east OSC-CSM LINE TX port, and the east OPT-BST OSC TX port is connected to the east OSC-CSM LINE RX port.

If an OPT-BST and OSCM card are installed on the west side, The west OPT-BST OSC TX port is connected to the west OSCM RX port, and the west OPT-BST OSC RX port is connected to the west OSCM TX port.

If you have an OPT-BST and OSC-CSM card are installed on the west side, the west OPT-BST OSC TX port is connected to the west OSC-CSM LINE RX port, and the west OPT-BST OSC RX port is connected to the west OSC-CSM LINE TX port.

Figure 3-11 shows an example of OSC fibering for a hub node with OSCM cards installed.


Note Install fiber-optic cables based on the Cisco MetroPlanner Internal Connections table for your site.

Step 2 Plug one end of a fiber into the west OPT-BST or OSC-CSM LINE TX connector.

Step 3 Route the fiber cable on the card faceplate through the fiber clip on the faceplate, if provided. (Fiber clips are factory-attached to the faceplates of 32MUX-O, 32DMX-O, OSCM, OPT-PRE, and OPT-BST cards.)

Step 4 Route the fiber cable through the cable-routing channel and cutout on the appropriate side of the shelf assembly, as necessary (Figure 14-35 on page 14-37).


Caution When you close the fiber-storage tray, the cables must not be pinched, and the cable bend radius must be equal to or greater than the minimum radius that is recommended in your site specifications. As you route each cable through the fiber-storage tray, make sure adequate cable slack remains.

Step 5 Plug the other end of the fiber cable into the adjacent node east OPT-BST or OSC-CSM LINE RX connector. Repeat in the other direction (east to west, TX to RX). Always connect the west line ports to the adjacent node east line ports.


Note Cards display an SF LED after the OSC terminations are created (see the "G38 Provision OSC Terminations and Ring ID" procedure) and transmit and receive fibers are not connected correctly. For example, an RX port is connected to another RX port or a TX port is connected to another TX port.


Step 6 If OSCM cards are not installed, continue with Step 7. If OSCM cards are installed on both sides of the shelf, complete Steps a through d. If an OSCM is installed on the west side of the shelf, but not the east side, complete Steps a and b only. If the OSCM is installed on the east side of the shelf but not the west, complete Steps c and d only.

a. Plug one end of a fiber into the west OPT-BST OSC RX connector and the other end into west OSCM OSC TX connector.

b. Plug another fiber into the west OSCM OSC RX connector and the other end to the west OPT-BST OSC TX connector.

c. plug one end of a fiber into the east OPT-BST OSC RX connector and the other end into the east OSCM TX connector.

Note Throughout this task, west refers to Slots 1 through 8, and east refers to Slots 10 through 17.



Note Amplified OADM nodes contain OPT-PRE cards and/or OPT-BST cards. Passive OADM nodes do not. Both contain add/drop channel or band cards.



Step 1 Refer to the Cisco MetroPlanner Internal Connections table (see Table 3-1) for your site when completing connections. Before you begin connecting fiber-optic cabling for amplified or passive OADM nodes, read the following rules for all OADM connections:

The two sides of the OADM node do not need to be symmetrical. On each side, Cisco MetroPlanner can create one of the following four configurations:

OPT-BST and OPT-PRE

OSC-CSM and OPT-PRE

Only OSC-CSM

Only OPT-BST

Step 2 Consult the following rules for OADM node express path cabled connections:

TX ports should only be connected to RX ports.

EXP ports are connected only to COM ports in between AD-xC or AD-xB cards that all belong to the east side (that is, they are daisy-chained).

EXP ports are connected only to COM ports in between AD-xC or AD-xB cards that all belong to the west side (that is, they are daisy-chained).

The EXP port of the last AD-xC or AD-xB card on the west side is connected to the EXP port of the first AD-xC or AD-xB card on the east side.

The OPT-BST COM RX port is connected to the nearest (in slot position) AD-xC or AD-xB COM TX port.

The OPT-PRE COM TX port is connected to the nearest (in slot position) AD-xC or AD-xB COM RX port.

If OADM cards are located in adjacent slots, the TCC2/TCC2P card assumes they are connected in a daisy-chain between the EXP ports and COM ports as noted previously.

The first west AD-xC or AD-xB card COM RX port is connected to the west OPT-PRE or OSC-CSM COM TX port.

The first west AD-xC or AD-xB card COM TX port is connected to the west OPT-BST or OSC-CSM COM RX port.

The first east AD-xC or AD-xB card COM RX port is connected to the east OPT-PRE or OSC-CSM COM TX port.

The first east AD-xC or AD-xB card COM TX port is connected to the east OPT-BST or OSC-CSM RX port.

If a west OPT-PRE is present, the west OPT-BST or OSC-CSM COM TX port is connected to the west OPT-PRE COM RX port.

If an east OPT-PRE is present, the east OPT-BST or OSC-CSM COM TX port is connected to the east OPT-PRE COM RX port.

Step 3 Consult the following rules for OADM node add/drop path cabled connections:

AD-xB add/drop (RX or TX) ports are only connected to the following ports:

4MD COM TX or 4MD COM RX ports

Another AD-xB add/drop port (a pass-through configuration)

An AD-xB add/drop band port is only connected to a 4MD card belonging to the same band.

For each specific AD-xB, the add and drop ports for that band card are connected to the COM TX and COM RX ports of the same 4MD card.

The AD-xB and 4MD cards are located in the same side (the connected ports will all have the same line direction).

Step 4 Consult the following rules for OADM node pass-through path cabled connections:

Pass-through connections are only established between add and drop ports on the same band or channel and same line direction.

Only connect AD-xC or AD-xB add/drop ports to other AD-xC or AD-xB add/drop ports (as pass-through configurations).

An add (RX) port is only connected to a drop (TX) port.

Only connect 4MD client input/output ports to other 4MD client input/output ports.

A west AD-xB drop (TX) port is connected to the corresponding west 4MD COM RX port.

A west AD-xB add (RX) port is connected to the corresponding west 4MD COM TX port.

An east AD-xB drop (TX) port is connected to the corresponding east 4MD COM RX port.

An east AD-xB add (RX) port is connected to the corresponding east 4MD COM TX port.

Step 5 Plug one end of the fiber cable into the RX port.

Step 6 Route the fiber cable on the card faceplate through the fiber clip on the faceplate, if provided. (Fiber clips are factory-attached to the faceplates of 32MUX-O, 32DMX-O, OSCM, OPT-PRE, and OPT-BST cards.)

Step 7 Route the fiber cable through the cable-routing channel and cutout on the appropriate side of the shelf assembly, as necessary (Figure 14-35 on page 14-37).

Step 8 As needed, route slack fiber-optic cable around the round cable retainers in the fiber-storage tray (Figure 14-38 on page 14-40).


Caution When you close the fiber-storage tray, the cables must not be pinched, and the cable bend radius must be equal to or greater than the minimum radius that is recommended in your site specifications. As you route each cable through the fiber-storage tray, make sure adequate cable slack remains.

Step 9 Route the fiber cable out either side of the fiber-storage tray as necessary.

Step 10 Plug the other end of the cable into the TX port.


Note Cards display an SF LED after the OSC terminations are created (see the "G38 Provision OSC Terminations and Ring ID" procedure) and transmit and receive fibers are not connected correctly. For example, an RX port is connected to another RX port or a TX port is connected to another TX port.

.

Step 7 Route the MPO cable slack through the patch-panel tray as necessary.


Caution When you close the patch-panel tray, the cables must not be pinched, and the cable bend radius must be equal to or greater than the minimum radius that is recommended in your site specifications. As you route each cable through the patch-panel tray, make sure adequate cable slack remains.

Step 8 While facing the front of the patch panel, at the rear of the patch panel plug the eight LC-connector fan-out cables on the MPO cable into their corresponding connectors on the bottom row of the patch panel. You should plug the fan-out cables from left to right (as you face the patch panel), following the numbers tagged (1 through 8) on the cables.

Figure 3-20 shows the patch-panel connectors from the rear of the patch-panel tray. Figure 3-21 shows the assigned wavelengths for each port on the patch panel, as indicated at the top of the patch-panel bar. The numbers on the patch-panel bar correspond to a 15xx.xx wavelength on the ITU grid.

Step 9 As necessary, repeat Steps 6 through 8 for the remaining three Add Rx ports on the 32WSS or MUX-O card, until all 32 connectors on the bottom row of the rear of the patch panel are connected.

Step 10 At the adjacent 32DMX or DMX-O card in that side of the shelf, plug the MPO connector of an MPO cable into the top ADD RX port (30.3 -36.6) of the 32DMX or DMX-O card. If you are connecting to the next MPO cable, plug it into the MPO connector below the previous MPO cable.

Step 11 Route the MPO cable slack through the patch-panel tray as necessary.


Caution When you close the patch-panel tray, the cables must not be pinched, and the cable bend radius must be equal to or greater than the minimum radius that is recommended in your site specifications. As you route each cable through the patch-panel tray, make sure adequate cable slack remains.

Step 12 While facing the front of the patch panel, at the rear of the patch panel plug the eight LC-connector fan-out cables on the MPO cable into their corresponding connectors on the top row of the patch panel. You should plug the fan-out cables from left to right (as you face the patch panel), following the numbers tagged (1 through 8) on the cables.

Step 13 As necessary, repeat Steps 10 through 12 for the remaining three Add Rx ports on the 32DMX card, until all 24 connectors on the top row of the rear of the patch panel are connected.

Step 14 For a hub or ROADM node, repeat Steps 6 through 13 to cable the other side of the shelf to the second patch panel. For a terminal node, go to Step 15.

Step 1 Complete the "DLP-G46 Log into CTC" task at the node where you want to provision the DWDM cable connections. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.

Step 2 Click the Provisioning > WDM-ANS > Connections tabs.

Step 3 Click Calculate Connections.

CTC verifies that the cards installed in the ONS 15454 shelf are compatible and will operate together as a valid DWDM node configuration. Furthermore, based on the cards installed or pre-provisioned, CTC calculates the intra-shelf patch cords that are expected to be installed. If the cards are not compatible or missing, for example, if an OPT-BST is installed but an OSCM card is not installed, the calculate connections function generates an error.


Note The connections calculation is not based on the Cisco MetroPlanner shelf layout. Calculations are based on the cards that are physically installed. If the Cisco MetroPlanner shelf layout calls for a hub node but OADM cards are installed, CTC calculates connections based on the cards expected for an OADM node.


Step 4 If no errors were generated, continue with Step 5. If errors appear, verify that the cards installed in the shelf match the Cisco MetroPlanner shelf layout. If the wrong cards are installed or are missing, install the correct cards following the "G30 Install the DWDM Cards" procedure.

Step 5 Verify that the connections in the CTC Connections tab match the connections in the Cisco MetroPlanner Internal Connections table. The CTC Connections tab will not show OPT-PRE dispersion compensation units (DCUs), connections, span connections, or connections between TXP and MXP cards and the DWDM cards.

Step 6 Complete the "DLP-G72 Create a DWDM Connection" task for any connections that require manual provisioning. (Connections that require manual creation are indicated by a "Yes" in the Cisco MetroPlanner Internal Connections table Manually Set column.) If you need to delete a connection, complete the "DLP-G73 Delete a DWDM Connection" task.


Note Although CTC calculates most DWDM connections automatically, some connections cannot be calculated because of the DWDM card type and position. You must create these connections manually. For example, connections related to optical bypass circuits must be manually provisioned.


Stop. You have completed this procedure.
