Power Failure Low (dBm)

Shows the optical power failure low threshold for the port. The threshold is calculated automatically when you run ANS. If the VOA Mode is Constant Attenuation, you can manually change the threshold. The value must be within the optical power range that is specified for the card. (Refer to the "Hardware Specifications" appendix in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.)

If VOA Mode is Constant Power, you cannot change the threshold manually because it is based on the Power setpoint (VOA Power Ref + VOA Power Calib). To change the threshold, you must change the VOA Power Calib value. This adjusts the Power setpoint. The threshold is automatically set to a value that is 5 dB lower than the Power setpoint.

Numeric (dB). Double-click the table cell, enter a value, then press Enter.

Power Degrade High (dBm)

Shows the power degrade high threshold. This power value applies to the corresponding port and is automatically calculated when ANS is run.

This threshold applies to a port that is associated to a VOA (OSC-VOA). In Constant Power mode, the port is always active and the threshold is automatically linked to the Power setpoint (VOA Power Ref + VOA Power Calib). To change the threshold, change the Power setpoint. The threshold will always be 2 dB higher than the Power setpoint.

Numeric.

Power Degrade Low (dBm)

Shows the power degrade low threshold. This power value applies to the corresponding port and is automatically calculated when ANS is run.

This threshold applies to a port associated to a VOA (OSC-VOA) always active in Constant Power mode.

In this case, the threshold is automatically linked to the Power setpoint (VOA Power Ref + VOA Power Calib) that is provisioned. Changing the setpoint will result in changing the threshold (always 2 dB lower).

Numeric.

VOA Degrade High (dBm)

Does not apply to OSCM and OSC-CSM cards.

VOA Degrade Low (dBm)

Does not apply to OSCM and OSC-CSM cards.

Power Degrade High refers to the port's Signal Output Power value and is automatically calculated by the TCC2/TCC2P when the amplifier is turned up.

The Power Degrade High threshold is linked to the Output Power Setpoint on the Parameters tab. Changing the setpoint changes the Power Degrade High threshold. The threshold value is always 2 dB higher than the Output Power Setpoint value.

APC can modify this value based on the number of OCHNC circuits that the amplifier is managing. Refer to the "Network Reference" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual for more information.

Power Degrade Low (dBm)

(Display only) Shows the current value of the optical power degrade high threshold configured in the card. This threshold applies only when the amplifier is active and in constant power mode.

Power Degrade Low refers to the port's Signal Output Power value and is automatically calculated by the TCC2/TCC2P when the amplifier is turned up.

The Power Degrade Low threshold is automatically linked to the Output Power Setpoint on the Parameters tab. Changing the setpoint changes the Power Degrade Low threshold. The threshold value is always 2 dB lower than the Output Power Setpoint.

APC can modify this value based on the number of OCHNC circuits that the amplifier is managing.

Gain Degrade High (dBm)

(Display only) Shows the current value of the gain degrade high threshold configured in the card. This threshold applies only when the amplifier is active and in constant gain mode.

Gain Degrade High refers to the port's Gain value and is automatically calculated by the TCC2/TCC2P and when the amplifier is turned up.

The Gain Degrade High threshold is linked to the Gain setpoint. Changing the setpoint changes the Gain Degrade High threshold. The threshold value is always 2 dB higher than the Gain Setpoint value.

APC can modify this value based on the number of OCHNC circuits that the amplifier is managing and to compensate for insertion loss due to fiber aging.

Gain Degrade Low (dBm)

(Display only) Shows the current value of the gain degrade low threshold configured in the card. This threshold applies only when the amplifier is active and in constant gain mode.

Gain Degrade Low refers to the port's Gain value and is automatically calculated by the TCC2/TCC2P and when the amplifier is turned up.

The Gain Degrade Low threshold is automatically linked to the Gain Setpoint that is provisioned. Changing the setpoint changes the Gain Degrade Low threshold. The threshold value is always 2 dB lower than the Gain Setpoint value.

APC can also modify this value based on the number of OCHNC circuits that the amplifier is managing.

Note The automatic laser shutdown (ALS) function should only be disabled temporarily for installation or maintenance reasons. Activate ALS immediately after maintenance or installation.



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

Table 11-30 32WSS and 32WSS-L Optical Channel Alarm Threshold Settings 

Parameter
Description
Options

Port

(Display only) Displays the port number, port type, and direction (RX or TX). For each optical channel (wavelength), two logical ports are associated. Only one port can be active at a time, depending on the port's operating mode. The operating mode, provisioned on the card view Maintenance tab, is either CHAN RX or PASS-THROUGH.

Ports 1 through 32 (CHAN-RX) are associated to optical channels configured as Add Drop channels. Ports 33 through 64 (PASS-THROUGH) are associated to optical channels configured as Pass-Through channels.

Power Failure Low (dBm)

Shows the power failure low threshold. This power value applies to the corresponding port and is automatically calculated when ANS is run.

This threshold applies to a port associated to a VOA (OSC-VOA) always active in Constant Power mode.

The threshold is automatically linked to the Power Setpoint (VOA Power Ref + VOA Power Calib) that is provisioned. Changing the setpoint results in changing the threshold (always 5 dB lower).

The threshold is calculated automatically when you run ANS. (Refer to the "Hardware Specifications" appendix in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.)

Numeric. CTC does not allow it to be changed.

Power Degrade High (dBm)

(Display only) Shows the power degrade high threshold. This power value applies to the corresponding port and is automatically calculated when ANS is run.

This threshold applies to a port associated to a VOA (OSC-VOA) always active in Constant Power mode.

The threshold is automatically linked to the Power Setpoint (VOA Power Ref + VOA Power Calib) that is provisioned. Changing the setpoint results in changing the threshold (always 3 dB higher).

Power Degrade Low (dBm)

(Display only) Shows the power degrade low threshold. This power value applies to the corresponding port and is automatically calculated when ANS is run.

This threshold applies to a port associated to a VOA (OSC-VOA) always active in Constant Power mode.

The threshold is automatically linked to the Power Setpoint (VOA Power Ref + VOA Power Calib) that is provisioned. Changing the setpoint results in changing the threshold (always 2 dB lower).

Numeric

Power ADD Failure Low (dBm)

Shows the power add failure low threshold. This power value applies to the corresponding port and is automatically calculated when ANS is run.

This threshold applies to the actual measurement of the optical power on the ADD RX port, reported as CHAN RX, that is, the power transmitted by the Trunk-Tx laser of the TXP/MXP card connected to the 32WSS or 32WSS-L card.

Numeric. CTC does not allow it to be changed.

Caution When provisioning orderwire for ONS 15454s residing in a ring, do not provision a complete orderwire loop. For example, a four-node ring typically has east and west ports provisioned at all four nodes. However, to prevent orderwire loops, provision two orderwire ports (east and west) at all but one of the ring nodes.


Tip Before you begin, make a list of the ONS 15454 slots and ports that require orderwire communication.
