NTP-D331 Manage Pluggable Port Modules

Purpose

This procedure provisions, changes, and deletes PPMs for the MRC-12 and STM64-XFP cards. (STM64-XFP cards are single-rate PPMs, and therefore can only be deleted.)

Step 1 Complete the "DLP-D60 Log into CTC" task on page 17-48 at the node where you want to provision, change, or delete PPMs. 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 turned on. See the "DLP-D227 Disable Alarm Filtering" task on page 19-19 as necessary.

b. Verify that no unexplained conditions appear on the network. If unexplained conditions appear, resolve them before continuing. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide.

c. Complete the "DLP-D147 Export CTC Data" task on page 18-39 to export alarm and condition information.

Step 4 As needed, complete the "DLP-D132 Provision a Multirate PPM on the MRC-12 Card" task on page 18-27. Single-rate PPMs do not require provisioning.

Step 5 As needed, complete the "DLP-D133 Provision the Optical Line Rate on the MRC-12 Card" task on page 18-27 to assign an OC-3, OC-12, or OC-48 line rate.

Step 6 As needed, complete the "DLP-D134 Change the Optical Line Rate on the MRC-12 Card" task on page 18-28 to change the line rate on a multirate PPM. You cannot change the optical line rate on single-rate PPMs.
