NTP-D16 Install STM-N Cards and Connectors

Purpose

This procedure installs the optical cards (STM-1, STM1-8, STM-4, STM4-4, STM-16, STM-64, and 15454_MRC-12). The MRC-12 (multirate), OC192SR1/STM64IO Short Reach (STM64-XFP Short Reach), and OC192/STM64 Any Reach(STM64-XFP Any Reach) cards require Small Form-factor Pluggables (SFPs/XFPs) to provide the fiber interface to the cards. On all other optical cards, the fiber is plugged directly into the card. Install according to site plan, if available.

Tools/Equipment

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 (21 CFR 1040.10 and 1040.11) and Class 1M (IEC 60825-1 2001-01) laser products. Statement 291

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

The following laser activation warning applies only to STM-64 cards with safety keys:


Warning 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 SDH. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the lower-right outside edge of the shelf assembly.


Note To simplify subnetwork connection protection (SNCP) to multiplex section-shared protection ring (MS-SPRing) conversion and node addition, install optical cards according to an east (Slots 12 and 13) to 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, a Locked-enabled, disabled STM-N port will output a line alarm indication signal (AIS-L) to any Unlocked-enabled far-end receivers. See the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide for further information about the AIS-L condition.



Step 1 If you installed XC-VXL-2.5G cards, review Table 2-1 to determine card/slot compatibility. If you installed XC-VXL-10G or XC-VXC-10G cards, review Table 2-2 to determine card/slot compatibility.

Install higher-capacity cards first; for example, install an STM-64 card before installing an STM-12 card. Let each card completely boot before installing the next card.


Note "OC192SR1/STM64IO Short Reach" and "OC192/STM64 Any Reach" are the titles that appear on the faceplates of the STM64-XFP cards. In CTC, the cards are abbreviated as STM64-XFP.


Before installing a MRC-12 card, review Table 2-3 for bandwidth limitations based on the slot where the card is installed and the type of cross-connect card installed in the shelf.

Table 2-3 Maximum Bandwidth by Shelf Slot for the MRC-12 in Different Cross-Connect Configurations 

XC Card Type
Maximum Bandwidth in Slots 1 through 4 and 12 through 17
Maximum Bandwidth in Slots 5, 6, 12, or 13

Refer to the card's reference section in the "Optical Cards" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual for more information about slot and bandwidth restrictions.

Step 2 Open the card latches/ejectors.

Step 3 Use the latches/ejectors to firmly slide the optical card along the guide rails until the card plugs into the receptacle at the back of the slot.

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.



Note If you install the wrong card in a slot, complete the "NTP-D227 Remove and Replace a Card" procedure.


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


Note The booting STM-N card will send an AIS-L to the far-end receiver as long as it is Locked-enabled, disabled.


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 optical card does not boot, open CTC and verify 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 illuminated continuously or the LEDs behave erratically, the card is not installed properly. Remove the card and repeat Steps 2 to 5.

Step 7 The MRC-12 card requires SFPs and the STM64-XFP cards require XFPs to provide a fiber interface. If you installed any of these cards, complete the "DLP-D335 Install GBIC or SFP/XFP Devices" task or preprovision the SFP/XFP using the "DLP-D107 Preprovision an SFP or XFP Device" task.

Step 8 Continue with the "NTP-D19 Install Fiber-Optic Cables on Optical Cards" procedure.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.


NTP-D17 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

Note The E3-12 card can be deployed in a central office or a carrier's exchange.



Note Install higher-capacity cards first; for example, install an E3-12 card before installing an E1-14 card. Let each card boot completely before installing the next card.



Note Cisco recommends installing STM-N, transponder (TXP), and muxponder (MXP) cards before you install electrical cards, as applicable.



Step 1 If you installed XC-VXL-2.5G cards, review Table 2-1 to determine card/slot compatibility. If you installed XC-VXL-10G or XC-VXC-10G 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 "NTP-D227 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.

If the red FAIL LED does not turn on, check the power.

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.


Note If you insert a card into a slot provisioned for a different card, all LEDs turn off.



Note 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.
