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



Caution Unused multiservice card slots should be filled with a filler card (Cisco P/N 15454-BLANK) and unused FMEC slots should be covered with a blank faceplate (Cisco P/N 15454E-BLANK-FMEC). The filler cards and blank faceplates ensure proper airflow when operating the ONS 15454 SDH without the front door attached, although Cisco recommends that the front door remain attached.

1.1  Overview

When installed in an equipment rack, the ONS 15454 SDH assembly is typically connected to a fuse and alarm panel to provide centralized alarm connection points and distributed power for the ONS 15454 SDH. 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 SDH allows access to the shelf assembly, fan-tray assembly, and cable-management area. The FMEC cover at the top of the shelf allows access to power connectors, external alarms and controls, timing input and output, and craft interface terminals.

You can mount the ONS 15454 SDH in an ETSI rack. The shelf assembly weighs approximately 26 kg (57 pounds) with no cards installed. The shelf assembly includes a front door and a Front Mount Electrical Connection (FMEC) cover for added security, a fan tray module for cooling, and extensive cable-management space.

All ONS 15454 SDH optical cards have SC connectors on the card faceplate, except the STM-1SH 1310-8 card, which has LC connectors. Fiber-optic cables are routed into the front of the optical and Ethernet cards. Electrical cards (E-1, E-3, DS3i, STM-1E) require FMEC cards to provide the cable connection points for the shelf assembly.

The ONS 15454 ETSI is powered using -48 VDC power. Negative and return power terminals are connected via the MIC-A/P and the MIC-C/T/P FMECs. The ground terminal is connected via the 2-hole grounding lug.


Note In this chapter, the terms "ONS 15454 SDH" 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 SDH refers to the entire system, both hardware and software.


Install the ONS 15454 SDH 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.

Figure 1-1 provides the dimensions of the ONS 15454 SDH.

Figure 1-1 ONS 15454 SDH Dimensions

1.2  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 SDH. These LEDs must be visible so technicians can quickly determine if any alarms are present. You can use the LCD to further isolate alarms.

The ONS 15454 SDH features a locked door to the front compartment. A pinned hex key that unlocks the front door ships with the ONS 15454 SDH. A button on the right side of the shelf assembly releases the door. The front door provides access to the shelf assembly, cable-management tray, fan-tray assembly, and LCD screen (Figure 1-2).

Figure 1-2 The ONS 15454 SDH Front Door

You can remove the front door of the ONS 15454 SDH to provide unrestricted access to the front of the shelf assembly (Figure 1-3).

Figure 1-3 Removing the ONS 15454 SDH Front Door

An erasable label is pasted on the inside of the front door (Figure 1-4). You can use the label to record slot assignments, port assignments, card types, node ID, rack ID, and serial number for the ONS 15454 SDH.

Figure 1-4 Front-Door Erasable Label

The front door label also includes the Class I and Class 1M laser warning (Figure 1-5).

1.4  E1-75/120 Conversion Panel

You need an E1-75/120 conversion panel if you want to convert the balanced 120-ohm interfaces of the E1-42 card and the corresponding FMECs to unbalanced 75-ohm interfaces.

The E1-75/120 contains eighty-four 1.0/2.3 miniature coax connectors (42 for transmit, 42 for receive) to the customer side and two Molex 96-pin LFH connectors to the E1-42 FMEC 120-ohm side. Each of the Molex 96-pin LFH connectors connects 21 inputs and 21 outputs. The E1-75/120 conversion panel is intended to be used in digital distribution frames (DDFs), ETSI racks, and ANSI racks.

You can install the E1-75/120 conversion panel in the rack of your ONS 15454 SDH or in a nearby rack. If you install the E1-75/120 conversion panel in a place where a longer cable is required, make sure that the total cable loss of the balanced 120-ohm cable and the unbalanced 75-ohm cable does not exceed the maximum allowed value. To ensure that the E1-75/120 conversion panel is secure, use one or two M6 mounting screws for each side of the shelf assembly. Figure 1-6 shows the rack-mounting for the E1-75/120 conversion panel.


Note If required, the mounting brackets of the E1-75/120 conversion panel can be uninstalled, rotated 90 degrees, and reinstalled to enable 19-inch (482.6 mm) rack mounting.


Figure 1-6 Mounting the E1-75/120 Conversion Panel in a Rack

1.5  Coaxial Cable


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.

All interfaces that are listed in Table 1-2 with 1.0/2.3 miniature coax connectors (E-1, E-3, DS-3, and STM-1E) must be connected using a 75-ohm coaxial cable.

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

1.6  Twisted-Pair Balanced Cable


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.

All E-1 interfaces that are listed in Table 1-2 with DB-37 or with Molex 96-pin LFH connectors must be connected using a 120-ohm twisted-pair balanced cable. For the interfaces that use Molex 96-pin LFH connectors Cisco offers ready-made cables.

1.7  Ethernet Cables

Ethernet cables use RJ-45 connectors, and are straight-through or crossover, depending on what is connected to them.

Table 1-3 shows 100Base-TX connector pin assignments, used with E100 Ethernet cards in the ONS 15454.

1.8  Cable Routing and Management

The ONS 15454 SDH cable management facilities include the following:

A cable-routing channel (behind the fold-down door) that runs the width of the shelf assembly, Figure 1-10

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 1-11


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 routing channel that enables you to route cables out either side


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


Optional fiber management tray (recommended for DWDM nodes)

Figure 1-10 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 1-10 Managing Cables on the Front Panel

1.9  Fiber Management

The jumper routing fins are 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 1-11 shows fibers routed from cards in the left slots, down through the fins, 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 1-11 Fiber Capacity

Table 1-4 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.

Table 1-4 Fiber Channel Capacity (One Side of the Shelf)

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 (0.07 inch) or smaller fibers.

1.10  Fan-Tray Assembly

The fan-tray assembly is located at the bottom of the ONS 15454 SDH. After you install the fan-tray assembly, you only need to open the drawer if a fan fails, or if you need to replace or clean the fan-tray air filter. Do not operate an ONS 15454 SDH without a fan-tray air filter. Refer to the "Maintain the Node" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide for information about cleaning and maintaining the fan-tray air filter.

The fan-tray assembly is a removable drawer that holds fans and fan-control circuitry for the ONS 15454 SDH. Cisco recommends removing the front door of the chassis when removing or installing the fan-tray assembly. The front of the fan-tray assembly has an LCD screen that provides slot and port-level information for all ONS 15454 SDH card slots, including the number of critical, major, and minor alarms. For STM-N cards, you can use the LCD to determine if a port is in working or protect mode and is active or standby. It also displays whether the software load is SONET or SDH and the software version number.

The temperature measured by the TCC2/TCC2P sensors is displayed on the LCD screen.

See Figure 1-12 for the position of the fan tray assembly.

Figure 1-12 Position of the Fan-Tray Assembly

1.10.1  Fan Speed

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 SDH Troubleshooting Guide. The red Fan Fail LED clears after you install a working fan-tray assembly.

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 card fails, the fans automatically shift to high speed. The temperature measured by the TCC2 sensors is displayed on the LCD screen.

1.10.2  Air Filter

The ONS 15454 SDH contains a reusable air filter that is installed beneath the fan-tray assembly.

The reusable filter is made of a gray, open-cell, polyurethane foam that is specially coated to provide fire and fungi resistance. Spare filters should be kept in stock. 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.


Caution Do not operate an ONS 15454 SDH without a fan-tray air filter. A fan-tray air filter is mandatory.

1.11  Power and Ground Description

Ground the equipment according to standards or local practices.

The ONS 15454 SDH has redundant -48 VDC power connectors on the MIC-A/P and MIC-C/T/P faceplates. To install redundant power feeds, use the two power cables shipped with the ONS 15454 SDH and one ground cable. For details, see the "MIC-A/P FMEC" section and the "MIC-C/T/P FMEC" section.


Caution Only use the power cables shipped with the ONS 15454 SDH.

1.12  Alarm, Timing, LAN, and Craft Pin Connections


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.

The MIC-A/P and the MIC-C/T/P FMECs in the EFCA area at the top of the ONS 15454 SDH shelf are used for enabling external alarms, timing input and output, and craft interface terminals to the ONS 15454 SDH. For details, see the "MIC-A/P FMEC" section and the "MIC-C/T/P FMEC" section.

1.13  Cards and Slots

ONS 15454 SDH 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 1-13 shows card installation.

Figure 1-13 Installing Cards in the ONS 15454 SDH

1.13.1  Card Slot Requirements

The ONS 15454 SDH shelf assembly has 17 card slots numbered sequentially from left to right. Slots 1 through 6 and 12 through 17 are for traffic-bearing cards.

Slots 7 and 11 are dedicated to TCC2/TCC2P cards. Slots 8 and 10 are dedicated to cross-connect (XC-VXL-2.5G, XC-VXL-10G, XC-VXC-10G) cards. Slot 9 is reserved for the optional AIC-I card. Slots 3 and 15 can also host electrical protect cards that are used in 1:N protection.


Caution Do not operate the ONS 15454 SDH with a single TCC2/TCC2P card or a single XC-VXL-2.5G/XC-VXL-10G/XC-VXC-10G card installed. Always operate the shelf assembly with one working and one protect card of the same type.

1.13.2  Card Replacement

To replace an ONS 15454 SDH 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 Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.


Caution Removing any active card from the ONS 15454 SDH 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 Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.


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



Note In a subnetwork connection protection (SNCP), pulling the active cross-connect card without a lockout causes SNCP circuits to switch.
