Caution Unused card slots should be filled with a detectable filler card (Cisco P/N 15454-FILLER) or a non-detectable filler card (Cisco P/N 15454-BLANK). The filler card ensures proper airflow when operating the ONS 15454 without the front door attached, although Cisco recommends that the front door remain attached.


Note The ONS 15454 is designed to comply with Telcordia GR-1089-CORE Type 2 and Type 4. Install and operate the ONS 15454 only in environments that do not expose wiring or cabling to the outside plant. Acceptable applications include Central Office Environments (COEs), Electronic Equipment Enclosures (EEEs), Controlled Environment Vaults (CEVs), huts, and Customer Premise Environments (CPEs).



Note The Cisco ONS 15454 assembly is intended for use with telecommunications equipment only.



Note You can search for cross-referenced Cisco part numbers and CLEI (Common Language Equipment Identification) codes at the following link: http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/front.x/clei/code_search.cgi.


1.1  Overview

When installed in an equipment rack, the ONS 15454 assembly is typically connected to a fuse and alarm panel to provide centralized alarm connection points and distributed power for the ONS 15454. Fuse and alarm panels are third-party equipment and are not described in this documentation. If you are unsure about the requirements or specifications for a fuse and alarm panel, consult the user documentation for the related equipment. The front door of the ONS 15454 allows access to the shelf assembly, fan-tray assembly, and cable-management area. The backplanes provide access to alarm contacts, external interface contacts, power terminals, and BNC/SMB connectors.

You can mount the ONS 15454 in a 19- or 23-inch rack (482.6 or 584.2 mm). The shelf assembly weighs approximately 55 pounds (24.94 kg) with no cards installed. The shelf assembly includes a front door for added security, a fan tray module for cooling, and extensive cable-management space.

ONS 15454 optical cards have SC and LC connectors on the card faceplate. Fiber-optic cables are routed into the front of the destination cards. Electrical cards (DS-1, DS-3, DS3XM, and EC-1) require electrical interface assemblies (EIAs) to provide the cable connection points for the shelf assembly. In most cases, EIAs are ordered with the ONS 15454 and come preinstalled on the backplane. See the "Electrical Interface Assemblies" section for more information about the EIAs.

The ONS 15454 is powered using -48 VDC power. Negative, return, and ground power terminals are accessible on the backplane.


Note In this chapter, the terms "ONS 15454" and "shelf assembly" are used interchangeably. In the installation context, these terms have the same meaning. Otherwise, shelf assembly refers to the physical steel enclosure that holds cards and connects power, and ONS 15454 refers to the entire system, both hardware and software.


Install the ONS 15454 in compliance with your local and national electrical codes:

United States: National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 70; United States National Electrical Code

Canada: Canadian Electrical Code, Part I, CSA C22.1

Other countries: If local and national electrical codes are not available refer to IEC 364, Part 1 through Part 7

1.2  Rack Installation

The ONS 15454 is mounted in a 19- or 23-in. (482.6- or 584.2-mm) equipment rack. The shelf assembly projects five inches (127 mm) from the front of the rack. It mounts in both Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA) standard and Telcordia-standard racks. The shelf assembly is a total of 17 inches (431.8 mm) wide with no mounting ears attached. Ring runs are not provided by Cisco and might hinder side-by-side installation of shelves where space is limited.

The ONS 15454 measures 18.5 inches (469.9 mm) high, 19 or 23 inches (482.6 or 584.2 mm) wide (depending on which way the mounting ears are attached), and 12 inches (304.8 mm) deep. You can install up to four ONS 15454 shelves in a seven-foot (2133.6 mm) equipment rack. The ONS 15454 must have one inch (25.4 mm) of airspace below the installed shelf assembly to allow air flow to the fan intake. If a second ONS 15454 is installed underneath the shelf assembly, the air ramp on top of the lower shelf assembly provides the air spacing needed and should not be modified in any way. Figure 1-1 shows the dimensions of the ONS 15454.


Note A 10-Gbps-compatible shelf assembly (15454-SA-ANSI or 15454-SA-HD) and fan-tray assembly (15454-FTA3 or 15454-FTA3-T) are required if ONS 15454 XC10G and ONS 15454 XC-VXC-10G cards are installed in the shelf.


Figure 1-1 Cisco ONS 15454 ANSI Dimensions

1.2.1  Reversible Mounting Bracket


Caution Use only the fastening hardware provided with the ONS 15454 to prevent loosening, deterioration, and electromechanical corrosion of the hardware and joined material.


Caution When mounting the ONS 15454 in a frame with a nonconductive coating (such as paint, lacquer, or enamel) either use the thread-forming screws provided with the ONS 15454 shipping kit, or remove the coating from the threads to ensure electrical continuity.

The shelf assembly comes preset for installation in a 23-inch (584.2 mm) rack, but you can reverse the mounting bracket to fit the smaller 19-inch (482.6 mm) rack.

1.2.2  Mounting a Single Node

Mounting the ONS 15454 in a rack requires a minimum of 18.5 inches (469.9 mm) of vertical rack space and one additional inch (25.4 mm) for air flow. To ensure the mounting is secure, use two to four #12-24 mounting screws for each side of the shelf assembly. Figure 1-2 shows the rack mounting position for the ONS 15454.

Figure 1-2 Mounting an ONS 15454 in a Rack

Two people should install the shelf assembly; however, one person can install it using the temporary set screws included. The shelf assembly should be empty for easier lifting. The front door can also be removed to lighten the shelf assembly.

If you are installing the fan-tray air filter using the bottom (external) brackets provided, mount the brackets on the bottom of the shelf assembly before installing the ONS 15454 in a rack.

1.2.3  Mounting Multiple Nodes

Most standard (Telcordia GR-63-CORE, 19-inch [482.6 mm] or 23-inch [584.2 mm]) seven-foot (2,133 mm) racks can hold four ONS 15454 shelves and a fuse and alarm panel. However, unequal flange racks are limited to three ONS 15454 shelves and a fuse and alarm panel or four ONS 15454 shelves and a fuse and alarm panel from an adjacent rack.

If you are using the external (bottom) brackets to install the fan-tray air filter, you can install three shelf assemblies in a standard seven-foot (2.133 m) rack. If you are not using the external (bottom) brackets, you can install four shelf assemblies in a rack. The advantage to using the bottom brackets is that you can replace the filter without removing the fan tray.

1.2.4  ONS 15454 Bay Assembly

The Cisco ONS 15454 Bay Assembly simplifies ordering and installing the ONS 15454 because it allows you to order shelf assemblies preinstalled in a seven-foot (2.133 m) rack. The Bay Assembly is available in a three- or four-shelf configuration. The three-shelf configuration includes three ONS 15454 shelf assemblies, a prewired fuse and alarm panel, and two cable-management trays. The four-shelf configuration includes four ONS 15454 shelf assemblies and a prewired fuse and alarm panel. You can order optional fiber channels with either configuration. Installation procedures are included in the Unpacking and Installing the Cisco ONS 15454 Four-Shelf and Zero-Shelf Bay Assembly document that ships with the Bay Assembly,

1.3  Front Door

The Critical, Major, and Minor alarm LEDs visible through the front door indicate whether a critical, major, or minor alarm is present anywhere on the ONS 15454. These LEDs must be visible so technicians can quickly determine if any alarms are present on the ONS 15454 shelf or the network. You can use the LCD to further isolate alarms. The front door (Figure 1-3) provides access to the shelf assembly, cable-management tray, fan-tray assembly, and LCD screen.

Figure 1-3 The ONS 15454 Front Door

The ONS 15454 ships with a standard door but can also accommodate a deep door and extended fiber clips (15454-DOOR-KIT) to provide additional room for cabling (Figure 1-4).

Figure 1-4 Cisco ONS 15454 Deep Door

.

The ONS 15454 door locks with a pinned hex key that ships with the ONS 15454. A button on the right side of the shelf assembly releases the door. You can remove the front door of the ONS 15454 to provide unrestricted access to the front of the shelf assembly. Before you remove the front door, you have to remove the ground strap of the front door (Figure 1-5).

Figure 1-5 ONS 15454 Front Door Ground Strap

Figure 1-6 shows how to remove the front door.

Figure 1-6 Removing the ONS 15454 Front Door

An erasable label is pasted on the inside of the front door (Figure 1-7). You can use the label to record slot assignments, port assignments, card types, node ID, rack ID, and serial number for the ONS 15454.

Figure 1-7 Front-Door Erasable Label


Note The front door label also includes the Class I and Class 1M laser warning (Figure 1-8).


Figure 1-8 Laser Warning on the Front-Door Label

1.4  Backplane Covers

If a backplane does not have an EIA panel installed, it should have two sheet metal backplane covers (one on each side of the backplane) as shown in Figure 1-9. Each cover is held in place with nine 6-32 x 3/8 inch Phillips screws.


Note See the "Electrical Interface Assemblies" section for information on EIAs.


Figure 1-9 Backplane Covers

1.4.1  Lower Backplane Cover

The lower section of the ONS 15454 backplane is covered by either a clear plastic protector (15454-SA-ANSI) or a sheet metal cover (15454-SA-HD), which is held in place by five 6-32 x 1/2 inch screws. Remove the lower backplane cover to access the alarm interface panel (AIP), alarm pin fields, frame ground, and power terminals (Figure 1-10).

Figure 1-10 Removing the Lower Backplane Cover

1.4.2  Rear Cover

The ONS 15454 has an optional clear plastic rear cover. This clear plastic cover provides additional protection for the cables and connectors on the backplane. Figure 1-11 shows the rear cover screw locations.

Figure 1-11 Backplane Attachment for Cover

You can also install the optional spacers if more space is needed between the cables and rear cover (Figure 1-12).

Figure 1-12 Installing the Plastic Rear Cover with Spacers

1.4.3  Alarm Interface Panel

The AIP is located above the alarm contacts on the lower section of the backplane. The AIP provides surge protection for the ONS 15454. It also provides an interface from the backplane to the fan-tray assembly and LCD. The AIP plugs into the backplane using a 96-pin DIN connector and is held in place with two retaining screws. The panel has a nonvolatile memory chip that stores the unique node address (MAC address).


Note The MAC address identifies the nodes that support circuits. It allows Cisco Transport Controller (CTC) to determine circuit sources, destinations, and spans. The TCC2/TCC2P cards in the ONS 15454 also use the MAC address to store the node database.


The 5-A AIP (73-7665-XX) is required when installing the new fan-tray assembly (15454-FTA3), which comes preinstalled on the shelf assembly (15454-SA-ANSI or 15454-SA-HD).


Note A blown fuse on the AIP board can cause the LCD display to go blank.


1.4.4  Alarm Interface Panel Replacement

If the alarm interface panel (AIP) fails, a MAC Fail alarm appears on the CTC Alarms menu and/or the LCD display on the fan-tray assembly goes blank. To perform an in-service replacement of the AIP, you must contact Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC). For contact information, go to the TAC website at http://www.cisco.com/tac.

You can replace the AIP on an in-service system without affecting traffic (except Ethernet traffic on nodes running a software release earlier than Release 4.0). The circuit repair feature allows you to repair circuits affected by MAC address changes on one node at a time. Circuit repair works when all nodes are running the same software version. Each individual AIP upgrade requires an individual circuit repair; if AIPs are replaced on two nodes, the circuit repair must be performed twice.


Caution Do not use a 2-A AIP with a 5-A fan-tray assembly; doing so causes a blown fuse on the AIP.


Note Ensure that all nodes in the affected network are running the same software version before replacing the AIP and repairing circuits. If you need to upgrade nodes to the same software version, do not change any hardware or repair circuits until after the software upgrade is complete. Replace an AIP during a maintenance window. Resetting the active TCC2/TCC2P card can cause a service disruption of less then 50 ms to optical or electrical traffic. Resetting the active TCC2/TCC2P card causes a service disruption of three to five minutes on all E-Series Ethernet traffic due to spanning tree reconvergence. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide for an AIP replacement procedure.


1.5  Electrical Interface Assemblies

Optional EIA backplane covers are typically preinstalled when ordered with the ONS 15454. EIAs must be ordered when using DS-1, DS-3, DS3XM, or EC-1 cards. This section describes each EIA.

Six different EIA backplane covers are available for the ONS 15454: BNC, High-Density BNC, MiniBNC, SMB, AMP Champ, UBIC-H (Universal Backplane Interface Connector-Horizontal), and UBIC-V (Vertical). If the shelf was not shipped with the correct EIA interface, you must order and install the correct EIA.

EIAs are attached to the shelf assembly backplane to provide electrical interface cable connections. EIAs are available with SMB and BNC connectors for DS-3 or EC-1 cards. EIAs are available with AMP Champ connectors for DS-1 cards. You must use SMB EIAs for DS-1 twisted-pair cable installation. UBIC-V EIAs have SCSI connectors. They are available for use with any DS-1, DS-3, or EC-1 card, but are intended for use with high-density electrical cards.


Note The MiniBNC EIAs only support cables using the Trompetor connectors for termination.


You can install EIAs on one or both sides of the ONS 15454 backplane in any combination (in other words, AMP Champ on Side A and BNC on Side B or High-Density BNC on Side A and SMB on Side B, and so forth). As you face the rear of the ONS 15454 shelf assembly, the right side is the A side and the left side is the B side. The top of the EIA connector columns are labeled with the corresponding slot number, and EIA connector pairs are marked transmit (Tx) and receive (Rx) to correspond to transmit and receive cables.


Note For information about EIA types, protection schemes, and card slots, see Chapter 7 "Card Protection."


1.5.1  EIA Installation

Optional EIA backplane covers are typically preinstalled when ordered with the ONS 15454. A minimal amount of assembly might be required when EIAs are ordered separately from the ONS 15454. If you are installing EIAs after the shelf assembly is installed, plug the EIA into the backplane. The EIA has six electrical connectors that plug into six corresponding backplane connectors. The EIA backplane must replace the standard sheet metal cover to provide access to the coaxial cable connectors. The EIA sheet metal covers use the same screw holes as the solid backplane panels, but they have 12 additional 6-32 x 1/2 inch Phillips screw holes so you can screw down the cover and the board using standoffs on the EIA board.

When using the RG-179 coaxial cable on an EIA, the maximum distance available (122 feet [37 meters]) is less than the maximum distance available with standard RG-59 (734A) cable (306 feet [93 meters]). The maximum distance when using the RG-59 (734A) cable is 450 feet (137 meters). The shorter maximum distance available with the RG179 is due to a higher attenuation rate for the thinner cable. Attenuation rates are calculated using a DS-3 signal:

For RG-179, the attenuation rate is 59 dB/kft at 22 MHz.

For RG-59 (734A) the attenuation rate is 11.6 dB/kft at 22 MHz.

1.5.3  BNC EIA

The ONS 15454 BNC EIA supports 24 DS-3 circuits on each side of the ONS 15454 (24 transmit and 24 receive connectors). If you install BNC EIAs on both sides of the shelf assembly, the ONS 15454 hosts up to 48 circuits. The BNC connectors on the EIA supports Trompeter UCBJ224 (75-ohm) 4-leg connectors (King or ITT are also compatible). Right-angle mating connectors for the connecting cable are AMP 413588-2 (75-ohm) connectors. If preferred, you can also use a straight connector of the same type. Use RG-59/U cable to connect to the ONS 15454 BNC EIA. These cables are recommended to connect to a patch panel and are designed for long runs. You can use BNC EIAs for DS-3 (including the DS3XM-6 and DS3XM-12) or EC-1 cards.

Figure 1-13 shows the ONS 15454 with preinstalled BNC EIAs.

To install coaxial cable with BNC connectors, refer to the "Install Shelf and Backplane Hardware" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide.

Figure 1-13 BNC Backplane for Use in 1:1 Protection Schemes

1.5.3.1  BNC Connectors

The EIA side marked "A" has 24 pairs of BNC connectors. The first 12 pairs of BNC connectors correspond to Ports 1 to 12 for a 12-port card and map to Slot 2 on the shelf assembly. The BNC connector pairs are marked "Tx" and "Rx" to indicate transmit and receive cables for each port. You can install an additional card in Slot 1 as a protect card for the card in Slot 2. The second 12 BNC connector pairs correspond to Ports 1 to 12 for a 12-port card and map to Slot 4 on the shelf assembly. You can install an additional card in Slot 3 as a protect card for the card in Slot 4. Slots 5 and 6 do not support DS-3 cards when the standard BNC EIA panel connectors are used.

The EIA side marked "B" provides an additional 24 pairs of BNC connectors. The first 12 BNC connector pairs correspond to Ports 1 to 12 for a 12-port card and map to Slot 14 on the shelf assembly. The BNC connector pairs are marked "Tx" and "Rx" to indicate transmit and receive cables for each port. You can install an additional card in Slot 15 as a protect card for the card in Slot 14. The second 12 BNC connector pairs correspond to Ports 1 to 12 for a 12-port card and map to Slot 16 on the shelf assembly. You can install an additional card in Slot 17 as a protect card for the card in Slot 16. Slots 12 and 13 do not support DS-3 cards when the standard BNC EIA panel connectors are used.

When BNC connectors are used with a DS3N-12 card in Slot 3 or 15, the 1:N card protection extends only to the two slots adjacent to the 1:N card due to BNC wiring constraints.

1.5.3.2  BNC Insertion and Removal Tool

Due to the large number of BNC connectors on the high-density BNC EIA, you might require a special tool for inserting and removing BNC EIAs (Figure 1-14). This tool also helps with ONS 15454 patch panel connections.

1.5.4  High-Density BNC EIA

The ONS 15454 high-density BNC EIA supports 48 DS-3 circuits on each side of the ONS 15454 (48 transmit and 48 receive connectors). If you install BNC EIAs on both sides of the unit, the ONS 15454 hosts up to 96 circuits. The high-density BNC EIA supports Trompeter UCBJ224 (75-ohm) 4-leg connectors (King or ITT are also compatible). Use straight connectors on RG-59/U cable to connect to the high-density BNC EIA. Cisco recommends these cables for connection to a patch panel; they are designed for long runs. You can use high-density BNC EIAs for DS-3 (including the DS3XM-6 and DS3XM-12) or EC-1 cards. Figure 1-15 shows the ONS 15454 with preinstalled high-density BNC EIAs.

To install coaxial cable with high-density BNC connectors, refer to the "Install Shelf and Backplane Cable" in the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide.

Figure 1-15 High-Density BNC Backplane for Use in 1:N Protection Schemes

The EIA side marked "A" hosts 48 pairs of BNC connectors. Each column of connector pairs is numbered and corresponds to the slot of the same number. The first column (12 pairs) of BNC connectors corresponds to Slot 1 on the shelf assembly, the second column to Slot 2, the third column to Slot 4, and the fourth column to Slot 5. The rows of connectors correspond to Ports 1 to 12 of a 12-port card.

The EIA side marked "B" provides an additional 48 pairs of BNC connectors. The first column (12 pairs) of BNC connectors corresponds to Slot 13 on the shelf assembly, the second column to Slot 14, the third column to Slot 16, and the fourth column to Slot 17. The rows of connectors correspond to Ports 1 to 12 of a 12-port card. The BNC connector pairs are marked "Tx" and "Rx" to indicate transmit and receive cables for each port. The High-Density BNC EIA supports both 1:1 and 1:N protection across all slots except Slots 6 and 12.

1.5.5  MiniBNC EIA

The ONS 15454 MiniBNC EIA supports a maximum of 192 transmit and receive DS-3 connections, 96 per side (A and B) through 192 miniBNC connectors on each side. If you install BNC EIAs on both sides of the unit, the ONS 15454 hosts up to 192 circuits. The MiniBNC EIAs are designed to support DS-3 and EC-1 signals.

The MiniBNC EIA supports the following cards:

DS3-12, DS3N-12

DS3i-N-12

DS3-12E, DS3N-12E

EC1-12

DS3XM-6

DS3XM-12

DS3/EC1-48

MiniBNCs support available high-density cards in unprotected and 1:N protection (where N < 2) protection groups.

1.5.5.1  MiniBNC Connectors

You can install MiniBNCs on one or both sides of the ONS 15454. As you face the rear of the ONS 15454 shelf assembly, the right side is the A side (15454-EIA-BNC-A96) and the left side is the B side (15454-EIA-BNC-A96). The diagrams adjacent to each row of connectors indicate the slots and ports that correspond with each connector in that row, depending on whether you are using a high density (HD) or low density (LD) configuration. The MiniBNC connector pairs are marked Tx and Rx to indicate transmit and receive cables for each port.

Figure 1-16 shows the ONS 15454 with preinstalled MiniBNC EIAs.

To install coaxial cable with MiniBNC connectors, refer to the "Install the Shelf and Backplane Cable" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide.

1.5.5.2  MiniBNC Insertion and Removal Tool

Due to the large number of MiniBNC connectors on the MiniBNC EIA, you might require a special tool for inserting and removing MiniBNC EIAs (Figure 1-17). This tool also helps with ONS 15454 patch panel connections.

1.5.6  SMB EIA

The ONS 15454 SMB EIA supports AMP 415484-1 75-ohm 4-leg connectors. Right-angle mating connectors for the connecting cable are AMP 415484-2 (75-ohm) connectors. Use RG-179/U cable to connect to the ONS 15454 EIA. Cisco recommends these cables for connection to a patch panel; they are not designed for long runs. Range does not affect loopback testing.

You can use SMB EIAs with DS-1, DS-3 (including the DS3XM-6 and DS3XM-12), and EC-1 cards. If you use DS-1 cards, use the DS-1 electrical interface adapter (balun) to terminate the twisted pair DS-1 cable to the SMB EIA (see the "Electrical Interface Adapters" section). SMB EIAs support 14 ports per slot when used with a DS-1 card, 12 ports per slot when used with a DS-3 or EC-1 card, and 6 ports per slot when used with a DS3XM-6 card.

Figure 1-18 shows the ONS 15454 with preinstalled SMB EIAs and the sheet metal cover and screw locations for the EIA. The SMB connectors on the EIA are AMP 415504-3 (75-ohm) 4-leg connectors.

To install SMB connectors, refer to the "Install Shelf and Backplane Cable" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide.

Figure 1-18 SMB EIA Backplane

The SMB EIA has 84 transmit and 84 receive connectors on each side of the ONS 15454 for a total of 168 SMB connectors (84 circuits).

The EIA side marked "A" hosts 84 SMB connectors in six columns of 14 connectors. The "A" side columns are numbered 1 to 6 and correspond to Slots 1 to 6 on the shelf assembly. The EIA side marked "B" hosts an additional 84 SMB connectors in six columns of 14 connectors. The "B" side columns are numbered 12 to 17 and correspond to Slots 12 to 17 on the shelf assembly. The connector rows are numbered 1 to 14 and correspond to the 14 ports on a DS-1 card.

For DS-3 or EC-1 cards, the EIA supports 72 transmit and 72 receive connectors, for a total of 144 SMB connectors (72 circuits). If you use a DS-3 or EC-1 card, only Ports 1 to 12 are active. If you use a DS3XM-6 card, only Ports 1 to 6 are active. The SMB connector pairs are marked "Tx" and "Rx" to identify transmit and receive cables for each port. If you use SMB connectors, you can install DS-1, DS-3, or EC-1 cards in Slots 1 to 4 or 14 to 17.

1.5.7  AMP Champ EIA

The ONS 15454 AMP Champ EIA supports 64-pin (32 pair) AMP Champ connectors for each slot on both sides of the shelf assembly where the EIA is installed. Cisco AMP Champ connectors are female AMP # 552246-1 with AMP # 552562-2 bail locks. Each AMP Champ connector supports 14 DS-1 ports. You can use AMP Champ EIAs with DS-1 cards only. Figure 1-19 shows the ONS 15454 with preinstalled AMP Champ EIAs and the corresponding sheet metal cover and screw locations for the EIA.

To install AMP Champ connector DS-1 cables, you must use 64-pin bundled cable connectors with a 64-pin male AMP Champ connector. You need an AMP Champ connector #552276-1 for the receptacle side and #1-552496-1 (for cable diameter 0.475 in. to 0.540 in.) or #2-552496-1 (for cable diameter 0.540 in. to 0.605 in.) for the right-angle shell housing (or their functional equivalent). The corresponding 64-pin female AMP Champ connector on the AMP Champ EIA supports one receive and one transmit for each DS-1 port for the corresponding card slot.

Because each DS1-14 card supports 14 DS-1 ports, only 56 pins (28 pairs) of the 64-pin connector are used. Prepare one 56-wire cable for each DS-1 facility installed.

Figure 1-19 AMP Champ EIA Backplane

Table 1-8 shows the pin assignments for the AMP Champ connectors on the ONS 15454 AMP Champ EIA. The EIA side marked "A" hosts six AMP Champ connectors. The connectors are numbered 1 to 6 for the corresponding slots on the shelf assembly. Each AMP Champ connector on the backplane supports 14 DS-1 ports for a DS1-14 card, and each connector features 28 live pairs—one transmit pair and one receive pair—for each DS-1 port.

The EIA side marked "B" hosts six AMP Champ connectors. The connectors are labeled 12 to 17 for the corresponding slots on the shelf assembly. Each AMP Champ connector on the backplane supports 14 DS-1 ports for a DS1-14 card, and each connector features 28 live pairs—one transmit pair and one receive pair—for each DS-1 port.


Note EIAs are hot-swappable. You do not need to disconnect power to install or remove EIAs.



Caution Always use an electrostatic discharge (ESD) wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the lower-right outside edge of the shelf assembly.

When using DS-1 AMP Champ cables, you must equip the ONS 15454 with an AMP Champ connector EIA on each side of the backplane where DS-1 cables will terminate. Each AMP Champ connector on the EIA corresponds to a slot in the shelf assembly and is numbered accordingly. The AMP Champ connectors have screw-down tooling at each end of the connector.

When the DS1N-14 card is installed in an ONS 15454 shelf that has an AMP Champ EIA, the cable that connects the AMP Champ connector with the traffic source must be connected to the ground on both the sides to meet the EMC standard.

1.5.8  UBIC-V EIA

UBIC-V EIAs are attached to the shelf assembly backplane to provide up to 112 transmit and receive connections through 16 SCSI connectors per side (A and B). The UBIC-V EIAs are designed to support DS-1, DS-3, and EC-1 signals. The appropriate cable assembly is required depending on the type of signal.

You can install UBIC-Vs on one or both sides of the ONS 15454. As you face the rear of the ONS 15454 shelf assembly, the right side is the A side (15454-EIA-UBICV-A) and the left side is the B side (15454-EIA-UBICV-B). The diagrams adjacent to each row of SCSI connectors indicate the slots and ports that correspond with each SCSI connector in that row, depending on whether you are using a high-density (HD) or low-density (LD) configuration.

UBIC-V EIAs will support high-density electrical cards (DS3/EC1-48, DS1/E1-56), as well as low-density electrical cards.

Figure 1-20 shows the A- and B-side slot assignments.

Figure 1-20 UBIC-V Slot Designations

The UBIC-V sheet metal covers use the same screw holes as the standard sheet metal covers, but they have 12 additional holes for pan-head screws and three holes for jack screws, so you can screw down the cover and the board using standoffs on the UBIC-V board.

When installed with the standard door and cabling on the backplane, the ONS 15454 shelf measures approximately 15.7 inches (399 mm) deep when partially populated with backplane cables, 16.1 inches (409 mm) deep when fully populated, and 16.75 inches (425 mm) deep with the rear cover installed. When installed with the deep door and cabling on the backplane, the ONS 15454 shelf measures approximately 17.5 inches (445 mm) deep when partially populated with backplane cables, 17.9 inches (455 mm) deep when fully populated, and 18.55 inches (471 mm) deep with the rear cover installed.

The UBIC-V EIA supports the following cards:

DS1-14, DS1N-14

DS3-12, DS3N-12

DS3i-N-12

DS3-12E, DS3N-12E

EC1-12

DS3XM-6

DS3XM-12

DS3/EC1-48

DS1/E1-56

The A and B sides each host 16 high-density, 50-pin SCSI connectors. The A-side maps to Slots 1 through 6 and the B-side maps to Slots 12 through 17.

In Software Releases 4.1.x and 4.6, UBIC-Vs support unprotected, 1:1, and 1:N (N < 5) protection groups. In Software R5.0 and later, UBIC-Vs also support available high-density cards in unprotected and 1:N (N < 2) protection groups.

Table 1-10 shows the UBIC-V protection types and their applicable slot assignments.

1.5.9  UBIC-H EIA

UBIC-H EIAs are attached to the shelf assembly backplane to provide up to 112 transmit and receive DS-1 connections through 16 SCSI connectors per side (A and B) or 96 transmit and receive DS-3 connections. The UBIC-H EIAs are designed to support DS-1, DS-3, and EC-1 signals. The appropriate cable assembly is required depending on the type of signal.

You can install UBIC-Hs on one or both sides of the ONS 15454. As you face the rear of the ONS 15454 shelf assembly, the right side is the A side (15454-EIA-UBICH-A) and the left side is the B side (15454-EIA-UBICH-B). The diagrams adjacent to each row of SCSI connectors indicate the slots and ports that correspond with each SCSI connector in that row, depending on whether you are using a high density (HD) or low density (LD) configuration.


Note UBIC-H EIAs will support use with the high-density (DS3/EC1-48, DS1/E1-56, and DS3XM-12) electrical cards, as well as existing low-density electrical cards.

If you are installing UBIC-H EIAs after the shelf assembly is installed, plug the UBIC-H EIA into the backplane. The UBIC-H backplane must replace the standard sheet metal cover to provide access to the cable connectors. The UBIC-H sheet metal covers use the same screw holes as the standard sheet metal covers, but they have 12 additional holes for panhead screws and three holes for jack screws so you can screw down the cover and the board using standoffs on the UBIC-H board.

When installed with the standard door and cabling on the backplane, the ONS 15454 shelf measures approximately 14.5 inches deep when fully populated with backplane cables, and 15.0 inches deep with the rear cover installed. When installed with the deep door and cabling on the backplane, the ONS 15454 shelf measures approximately 16.5 inches deep when fully populated with backplane cables, and 17.0 inches deep with the rear cover installed.

The UBIC-H EIA supports the following cards:

DS1-14, DS1N-14

DS3-12, DS3N-12

DS3-12E, DS3N-12E

EC1-12

DS3XM-6

DS3XM-12

DS3/EC1-48

DS1/E1-56

The A and B sides each host 16 high-density, 50-pin SCSI connectors. The A-side maps to Slots 1 through 6 and the B-side maps to Slots 12 through 17.

In Software Releases prior to Release 5.0, UBIC-Hs support unprotected, 1:1, and 1:N (where N < 5) protection groups. In Software R5.0 and greater, UBIC-Hs additionally support available high-density cards in unprotected and 1:N protection (where N < 2) protection groups.

1.5.10  EIA Replacement

Before you attach a new EIA, you must remove the backplane cover or EIA already installed on the ONS 15454. Refer to the spare document(s) for the EIA type(s) you are removing and replacing for specific information.

1.6  Coaxial Cable


Caution Always use the supplied ESD wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the lower-right outside edge of the shelf assembly.

When using ONS 15454 DS-3 electrical cables, the cables must terminate on an EIA installed on the ONS 15454 backplane. All DS-3 cables connected to the ONS 15454 DS-3 card must terminate with coaxial cables using the desired connector type to connect to the specified EIA.

The electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) performance of the node depends on good-quality DS-3 coaxial cables, such as Shuner Type G 03233 D, or the equivalent.

1.7  DS-1 Cable

DS-1 cables support AMP Champ connectors and twisted-pair wire-wrap cabling. Twisted-pair wire-wrap cables require SMB EIAs.

1.7.1  Twisted Pair Wire-Wrap Cables

Installing twisted-pair, wire-wrap DS-1 cables requires separate pairs of grounded twisted-pair cables for receive (in) and transmit (out). Prepare four cables, two for receive and two for transmit, for each DS-1 facility to be installed.


Caution Always use the supplied ESD wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the lower-right outside edge of the shelf assembly.

If you use DS-1 electrical twisted-pair cables, equip the ONS 15454 with an SMB EIA on each side of the backplane where DS-1 cables will terminate. You must install special DS-1 electrical interface adapters, commonly referred to as a balun, on every transmit and receive connector for each DS-1 termination.

1.7.2  Electrical Interface Adapters


Note DS-1 electrical interface adapters project an additional 1.72 inches (43.7 mm) from the ONS 15454 backplane.


If you install DS-1 cards in the ONS 15454, you must fit the corresponding transmit and receive SMB connectors on the EIA with a DS-1 electrical interface adapter. You can install the adapter on the SMB connector for the port. The adapter has wire-wrap posts for DS-1 transmit and receive cables. Figure 1-22 shows the DS-1 electrical interface adapter.


Note "EIA" refers to electrical interface assemblies and not electrical interface adapters. Electrical interface adapters are also known as baluns.


Figure 1-22 DS-1 Electrical Interface Adapter (Balun)

Each DS-1 electrical interface adapter has a female SMB connector on one end and a pair of 0.045 inch (1.14 mm) square wire-wrap posts on the other end. The wire-wrap posts are 0.200 inches (5.08 mm) apart.


Caution Always use the supplied ESD wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the lower-right outside edge of the shelf assembly.

1.8  UBIC-V Cables


Note Cisco Systems announced the end-of-sale and end-of-life dates for the Cisco ONS 15454 MSPP Universal BackPlane Interface Adapter, Vertical Orientation (UBIC-V), and its DS1 and DS3 Cables. For further details, refer to Product Bulletin No. EOL5039 at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/optical/ps5724/ps2006/prod_end-of-life_notice0900aecd8052a481.html.


The UBIC-V EIA is designed to support DS-1, DS-3, or EC-1 signals. The type of signal supported is determined by the respective UBIC-V cable assembly.

DS-1 cables for the UBIC-V have a maximum supported distance of 655 feet (199.6 m). DS-1 cables arrive with unterminated #24 AWG twisted pairs on the far end and are color coded as identified in Table 1-17.

The following DS-1 cables are no longer available from Cisco Systems for use with the UBIC-V EIA:

DS-1 cable, 150 feet: 15454-CADS1-SD

DS-1 cable, 250 feet: 15454-CADS1-ID

DS-1 cable, 655 feet: 15454-CADS1-LD

DS-3/EC-1 cables for the UBIC-V have a maximum supported distance of 450 feet (137.2 m). DS-3/EC-1 cables arrive with unterminated coaxial cable at the far end and labeled with the respective port number. 75-ohm BNC connectors for each port (qty. 12) are supplied and require that they be crimped on.

The following DS-3/EC-1 cables are no longer available from Cisco Systems for use with the UBIC-V EIA:

DS-3/EC-1 cable, 75 feet: 15454-CADS3-SD

DS-3/EC-1 cable, 225 feet: 15454-CADS3-ID

DS-3/EC-1 cable, 450 feet: 15454-CADS3-LD

Figure 1-23 identifies the pin numbers for the DS-1 and DS-3/EC-1 cables as referenced from the SCSI connector.

Figure 1-23 Cable Connector Pins

Table 1-16 identifies the UBIC-V SCSI connector pin assignments for the DS-1 cables as referenced from the EIA backplane to the SCSI connector.


Note Conversion from the back plane's single ended (unbalanced) 75-ohm signal to a differential (balanced) 100-ohm signal happens through the embedded transformer within the SCSI connector. The cable's shield is connected to the connector shell. This conversion is illustrated in Figure 1-24.

1.9  UBIC-H Cables

The UBIC-H EIA is designed to support DS-1, DS-3, or EC-1 signals. The type of signal supported is determined by the UBIC-H cable assembly that you order.

To support DS-1 signals, select the DS-1 UBIC-H cable assembly (part number 15454-CADS1-H-<length>).

To support DS-3 or EC-1 signals, select the DS-3/EC-1 UBIC-H cable assembly (part number 15454-CADS3-H-<length>).

DS-1 cables for the UBIC-H have a maximum supported distance of 655 feet (199.6 m). DS-1 cables arrive with unterminated #24 AWG twisted pairs on the far end and are color coded as identified in Table 1-20.

The following DS-1 cables are available from Cisco Systems for use with the UBIC-H EIA:

25 feet: 15454-CADS1-H-25

50 feet: 15454-CADS1-H-50

75 feet: 15454-CADS1-H-75

Figure 1-31 shows the crossover Ethernet cable schematic. Use a crossover cable when connecting to a switch or hub.

Figure 1-31 Crossover Cable

1.11  Cable Routing and Management

The ONS 15454 cable management facilities include the following:

A cable-routing channel (behind the fold-down door) that runs the width of the shelf assembly (Figure 1-32)

Plastic horseshoe-shaped fiber guides at each side opening of the cable-routing channel that ensure the proper bend radius is maintained in the fibers (Figure 1-33)


Note You can remove the fiber guide if necessary to create a larger opening (if you need to route CAT-5 Ethernet cables out the side, for example). To remove the fiber guide, take out the three screws that anchor it to the side of the shelf assembly.


A fold-down door that provides access to the cable-management tray

Cable tie-wrap facilities on EIAs that secure cables to the cover panel

A cable routing channel that enables you to route cables out either side

Jumper slack storage reels (2) on each side panel that reduce the amount of slack in cables that are connected to other devices


Note To remove the jumper slack storage reels, take out the screw in the center of each reel.


Optional tie-down bar

Figure 1-32 shows the cable management facilities that you can access through the fold-down front door, including the cable-routing channel and cable-routing channel posts.

Figure 1-32 Managing Cables on the Front Panel

1.11.1  Fiber Management

The universal cable router is designed to route fiber jumpers out of both sides of the shelf. Slots 1 to 6 exit to the left, and Slots 12 to 17 exit to the right. Figure 1-33 shows fibers routed from cards in the left slots, down through the posts, then exiting out the fiber channel to the left. The maximum capacity of the fiber routing channel depends on the size of the fiber jumpers.

Figure 1-33 Fiber Capacity

Table 1-23 provides the maximum capacity of the fiber channel for one side of a shelf, depending on fiber size and number of Ethernet cables running through that fiber channel.

Plan your fiber size according to the number of cards/ports installed in each side of the shelf. For example, if your port combination requires 36 fibers, 3 mm (0.11 inch) fiber is adequate. If your port combination requires 68 fibers, you must use 2 mm(0.7 inch) or smaller fibers.

1.11.2  Fiber Management Using the Tie-Down Bar

You can install an optional 5-inch (127 mm) tie-down bar on the rear of the ANSI chassis. You can use tie-wraps or other site-specific material to bundle the cabling and attach it to the bar so that you can more easily route the cable away from the rack.

Figure 1-34 shows the tie-down bar, the ONS 15454, and the rack.

Figure 1-34 Tie-Down Bar

1.11.3  Coaxial Cable Management

Coaxial cables connect to EIAs on the ONS 15454 backplane using cable connectors. EIAs feature cable-management eyelets for tie wrapping or lacing cables to the cover panel.

1.11.4  DS-1 Twisted-Pair Cable Management

Connect twisted pair/DS-1 cables to SMB EIAs on the ONS 15454 backplane using cable connectors and DS-1 EIAs (baluns).

1.11.5  AMP Champ Cable Management

EIAs have cable management eyelets to tiewrap or lace cables to the cover panel. Tie wrap or lace the AMP Champ cables according to local site practice and route the cables. If you configure the ONS 15454 for a 23-inch (584.2 mm) rack, two additional inches (50.8 mm) of cable management area is available on each side of the shelf assembly.

1.12  Alarm Expansion Panel

The optional ONS 15454 alarm expansion panel (AEP) can be used with the Alarm Interface Controller—International card (AIC-I) card to provide an additional 48 dry alarm contacts for the ONS 15454, 32 of which are inputs and 16 are outputs. The AEP is a printed circuit board assembly that is installed on the backplane. Figure 1-35 shows the AEP board; the left connector is the input connector and the right connector is the output connector.

The AIC-I without an AEP already contains direct alarm contacts. These direct AIC-I alarm contacts are routed through the backplane to wire-wrap pins accessible from the back of the shelf. If you install an AEP, you cannot use the alarm contacts on the wire-wrap pins. For further information about the AIC-I, see the "AIC-I Card" section.

Figure 1-35 AEP Printed Circuit Board Assembly

Figure 1-36 shows the AEP block diagram.

Figure 1-36 AEP Block Diagram

Each AEP alarm input port has provisionable label and severity. The alarm inputs have optocoupler isolation. They have one common 48-VDC output and a maximum of 2 mA per input. Each opto metal oxide semiconductor (MOS) alarm output can operate by definable alarm condition, a maximum open circuit voltage of 60 VDC, anda maximum current of 100 mA. See the "External Alarms and Controls" section for further information.

1.12.1  Wire-Wrap and Pin Connections

1.13  Filler Card

Filler cards are designed to occupy empty multiservice and AIC-I slots in the Cisco ONS 15454 (Slots 1 - 6, 9, and 12 - 17). The filler card cannot operate in the XC slots (Slots 8 and 10) or TCC slots (7 and 11). When installed, the filler card aids in maintaining proper air flow and EMI requirements.


Note There are two types of filler cards, a detectable version (Cisco P/N 15454-FILLER) and a non-detectable version (Cisco P/N 15454-BLANK). The detectable card has the label FILLER on the faceplate. The non-detectable card has no faceplate label. In Software Release 6.0 and greater, the former card is detectable through CTC when installed in the ONS 15454 shelf.


Figure 1-40 shows the faceplate of the detectable filler card. The filler cards have no card-level LED indicators.

Figure 1-40 Detectable Filler Card Faceplate

1.14  Fan-Tray Assembly

The fan-tray assembly is located at the bottom of the ONS 15454 bay assembly. The fan tray is a removable drawer that holds fans and fan-control circuitry for the ONS 15454. The front door can be left in place or removed before installing the fan-tray assembly. After you install the fan tray, you should only need to access it if a fan failure occurs or if you need to replace or clean the fan-tray air filter.

The front of the fan-tray assembly has an LCD screen that provides slot- and port-level information for all ONS 15454 card slots, including the number of Critical, Major, and Minor alarms. For optical cards, you can use the LCD to determine if a port is in working or protect mode and is active or standby. The LCD also tells you whether the software load is SONET or SDH and the software version number.


Note The 15454-SA-ANSI or 15454-SA-HD shelf assembly and 15454-FTA3 fan-tray assembly are required with any ONS 15454 that has XC10G or XC-VXC-10G cards.



Caution The 15454-FTA3-T fan-tray assembly can only be installed in ONS 15454 Release 3.1 and later shelf assemblies (15454-SA-ANSI, P/N: 800-19857; 15454-SA-HD, P/N: 800-24848). The fan-tray assembly has a pin that prevents it from being installed in ONS 15454 shelf assemblies released before ONS 15454 Release 3.1 (15454-SA-NEBS3E, 15454-SA-NEBS3, and 15454-SA-R1, P/N: 800-07149). Equipment damage can result from attempting to install the 15454-FTA3 in a noncompatible shelf assembly.


Note The 15454-FTA3 is not I-temp compliant. To obtain an I-temp fan tray, install the 15454-FTA3-T fan-tray assembly in an ONS 15454 Release 3.1 shelf assembly (15454-SA-ANSI or 15454-SA-HD). However, do not install the ONS 15454 XC10G cross-connect cards with the 15454-FTA2 fan-tray assembly.


1.14.1  Fan Speed and Power Requirements

Fan speed is controlled by TCC2/TCC2P card temperature sensors. The sensors measure the input air temperature at the fan-tray assembly. Fan speed options are low, medium, and high. If the TCC2/TCC2P card fails, the fans automatically shift to high speed. The temperature measured by the TCC/TCC2P2 sensors is displayed on the LCD screen.

Table 1-27 lists power requirements for the fan-tray assembly.

1.14.2  Fan Failure

If one or more fans fail on the fan-tray assembly, replace the entire assembly. You cannot replace individual fans. The red Fan Fail LED on the front of the fan tray illuminates when one or more fans fail. For fan tray replacement instructions, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide. The red Fan Fail LED clears after you install a working fan tray.

1.14.3  Air Filter

The ONS 15454 contains a reusable air filter; Model 15454-FTF2, that is installed either beneath the fan-tray assembly or in the optional external filter brackets. Earlier versions of the ONS 15454 used a disposable air filter that is installed beneath the fan-tray assembly only. However, the reusable air filter is backward compatible.

The reusable filter is made of a gray, open-cell, polyurethane foam that is specially coated to provide fire and fungi resistance. All versions of the ONS 15454 can use the reusable air filter. Spare filters should be kept in stock.


Caution Do not operate an ONS 15454 without the mandatory fan-tray air filter.


Caution Inspect the air filter every 30 days, and clean the filter every three to six months. Replace the air filter every two to three years. Avoid cleaning the air filter with harsh cleaning agents or solvents. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide for information about cleaning and maintaining the fan-tray air filter.

1.15  Power and Ground Description

Ground the equipment according to Telcordia standards or local practices.

Cisco recommends the following wiring conventions, but customer conventions prevail:

Red wire for battery connections (-48 VDC)

Black wire for battery return connections (0 VDC)

The battery return connection is treated as DC-I, as defined in GR-1089-CORE, issue 3.

The ONS 15454 has redundant -48 VDC #8 power terminals on the shelf-assembly backplane. The terminals are labeled BAT1, RET1, BAT2, and RET2 and are located on the lower section of the backplane behind a clear plastic cover.

To install redundant power feeds, use four power cables and one ground cable. For a single power feed, only two power cables (#10 AWG, 2.588 mm² [0.1018 inch], copper conductor, 194°F [90°C]) and one ground cable (#6 AWG, 4.115 mm² [0.162 inch]) are required. Use a conductor with low impedance to ensure circuit overcurrent protection. However, the conductor must have the capability to safely conduct any faulty current that might be imposed.

The existing ground post is a #10-32 bolt. The nut provided for a field connection is also a #10 AWG (2.588 mm² [0.1018 inch]), with an integral lock washer. The lug must be a dual-hole type and rated to accept the #6 AWG (4.115 mm² [0.162 inch]) cable. Two posts are provided on the Cisco ONS 15454 to accommodate the dual-hole lug. Figure 1-41 shows the location of the ground posts.

Figure 1-41 Ground Posts on the ONS 15454 Backplane

1.16  Alarm, Timing, LAN, and Craft Pin Connections


Caution Always use the supplied ESD wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the lower-right outside edge of the shelf assembly.

The ONS 15454 has a backplane pin field located at the bottom of the backplane. The backplane pin field provides 0.045 square inch (29 mm2) wire-wrap pins for enabling external alarms, timing input and output, and craft interface terminals. This section describes the backplane pin field and the pin assignments for the field. Figure 1-42 shows the wire-wrap pins on the backplane pin field. Beneath each wire-wrap pin is a frame ground pin. Frame ground pins are labeled FG1, FG2, FG3, etc. Install the ground shield of the cables connected to the backplane to the ground pin that corresponds to the pin field used.


Note The AIC-I requires a shelf assembly running Software Release 3.4.0 or later. The backplane of the ANSI shelf contains a wire-wrap field with pin assignment according to the layout in Figure 1-42. The shelf assembly might be an existing shelf that has been upgraded to R3.4 or later. In this case the backplane pin labelling appears as indicated in Figure 1-43. But you must use the pin assignments provided by the AIC-I as shown in Figure 1-42.


Figure 1-42 ONS 15454 Backplane Pinouts (Release 3.4 or Later)

Figure 1-43 ONS 15454 Backplane Pinouts

1.16.1  Alarm Contact Connections

The alarm pin field supports up to 17 alarm contacts, including four audible alarms, four visual alarms, one alarm cutoff (ACO), and four user-definable alarm input and output contacts.

Audible alarm contacts are in the LOCAL ALARM AUD pin field and visual contacts are in the LOCAL ALARM VIS pin field. Both of these alarms are in the LOCAL ALARMS category. User-definable contacts are in the ENVIR ALARM IN (external alarm) and ENVIR ALARM OUT (external control) pin fields. These alarms are in the ENVIR ALARMS category; you must have the AIC-I card installed to use the ENVIR ALARMS. Alarm contacts are Normally Open (N/O), meaning that the system closes the alarm contacts when the corresponding alarm conditions are present. Each alarm contact consists of two wire-wrap pins on the shelf assembly backplane. Visual and audible alarm contacts are classified as critical, major, minor, and remote. Figure 1-43 shows alarm pin assignments.

Visual and audible alarms are typically wired to trigger an alarm light or bell at a central alarm collection point when the corresponding contacts are closed. You can use the Alarm Cutoff pins to activate a remote ACO for audible alarms. You can also activate the ACO function by pressing the ACO button on the TCC2/TCC2P card faceplate. The ACO function clears all audible alarm indications. After clearing the audible alarm indication, the alarm is still present and viewable in the Alarms tab in CTC. For more information, see the "External Alarms and Controls" section.

1.16.2  Timing Connections

The ONS 15454 backplane supports two building integrated timing supply (BITS) clock pin fields. The first four BITS pins, rows 3 and 4, support output and input from the first external timing device. The last four BITS pins, rows 1 and 2, perform the identical functions for the second external timing device. Table 1-28 lists the pin assignments for the BITS timing pin fields.


Note For timing connection, use 100-ohm shielded BITS clock cable pair #22 or #24 AWG (0.51 mm² [0.020 inch] or 0.64 mm² [0.0252 inch]), twisted-pair T1-type.

1.16.3  LAN Connections

Use the LAN pins on the ONS 15454 backplane to connect the ONS 15454 to a workstation or Ethernet LAN, or to a LAN modem for remote access to the node. You can also use the LAN port on the TCC2/TCC2P card faceplate to connect a workstation or to connect the ONS 15454 to the network. Table 1-29 shows the LAN pin assignments.

Before you can connect an ONS 15454 to other ONS 15454s or to a LAN, you must change the default IP address that is shipped with each ONS 15454 (192.1.0.2).

1.16.4  TL1 Craft Interface Installation

You can use the craft pins on the ONS 15454 backplane or the EIA/TIA-232 port on the TCC2/TCC2P card faceplate to create a VT100 emulation window to serve as a TL1 craft interface to the ONS 15454. Use a straight-through cable to connect to the EIA/TIA-232 port. Table 1-30 shows the pin assignments for the CRAFT pin field.


Note You cannot use the craft backplane pins and the EIA/TIA-232 port on the TCC2/TCC2P card simultaneously.



Note To use the serial port craft interface wire-wrap pins on the backplane, the DTR signal line on the backplane port wire-wrap pin must be connected and active.

1.17  Cards and Slots

ONS 15454 cards have electrical plugs at the back that plug into electrical connectors on the shelf- assembly backplane. When the ejectors are fully closed, the card plugs into the assembly backplane. Figure 1-44 shows card installation.

Figure 1-44 Installing Cards in the ONS 15454

1.17.1  Card Slot Requirements

The ONS 15454 shelf assembly has 17 card slots numbered sequentially from left to right. Slots 1 to 6 and 12 to 17 are multiservice slots that are used for electrical, optical, and Ethernet cards (traffic cards). Card compatibility depends on the EIA, protection scheme, and cross-connect card type used in the shelf. Refer to the "Card Compatibility" section for more detailed compatibility information.

Slots 7 and 11 are dedicated to TCC2/TCC2P cards. Slots 8 and 10 are dedicated to cross-connect (XCVT, XC10G, and XC-VXC-10G) cards. Slot 9 is reserved for the optional AIC-I card. Slots 3 and 15 can also host electrical cards that are used for 1:N protection. (See the "Electrical Card Protection" section for a list of electrical cards that can operate as protect cards.)


Caution Do not operate the ONS 15454 with a single TCC2/TCC2P card or a single XCVT/XC10G/XC-VXC-10G card installed. Always operate the shelf assembly with one working and one protect card of the same type.

Shelf assembly slots have symbols indicating the type of cards that you can install in them. Each ONS 15454 card has a corresponding symbol. The symbol on the card must match the symbol on the slot.

Table 1-31 shows the slot and card symbol definitions.


Note Protection schemes and EIA types can affect slot compatibility.

1 When used as a protect card, the card does not have a physical external connection. The protect card connects to the working card(s) through the backplane and becomes active when the working card fails. The protect card then uses the physical connection of the failed card.

2 When used as a protect card, the card does not have a physical external connection. The protect card connects to the working card(s) through the backplane and becomes active when the working card fails. The protect card then uses the physical connection of the failed card.

3 These cards are designated as OC192-XFP in CTC.


1.17.2  Card Replacement

To replace an ONS 15454 card with another card of the same type, you do not need to make any changes to the database; remove the old card and replace it with a new card. To replace a card with a card of a different type, physically remove the card and replace it with the new card, then delete the original card from CTC. For specifics, refer to the "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide.


Caution Removing any active card from the ONS 15454 can result in traffic interruption. Use caution when replacing cards and verify that only inactive or standby cards are being replaced. If the active card needs to be replaced, switch it to standby prior to removing the card from the node. For traffic switching procedures, refer to the "Maintain the Node" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide.


Note An improper removal (IMPROPRMVL) alarm is raised whenever a card is removed and reinserted (reseated) is performed, unless the card is deleted in CTC first. The alarm clears after the card replacement is complete.



Note In a path protection, pulling the active XCVT/XC10G without a lockout causes path protection circuits to switch.


1.17.3  Ferrites

Place third-party ferrites on certain cables to dampen electromagnetic interference (EMI) from the ONS 15454. Ferrites must be added to meet the requirements of Telcordia GR-1089-CORE. Refer to the ferrite manufacturer documentation for proper use and installation of the ferrites. Ferrite placements on the ONS 15454 can include power cables, AMP Champ connectors, baluns, BNC/SMB connectors, and the wire-wrap pin field.

1.18  Software and Hardware Compatibility

Table 1-33 shows ONS 15454 software and hardware compatibility for nodes configured with XC or XCVT cards for Releases 4.6, 4.7, 5.0, 6.0, and 7.0.
