1 CTC refers to these cards as STM64-XFP



Note The Cisco OC3 IR/STM1 SH 1310-8, OC12 IR/STM4 SH 1310, and OC48 IR/STM16 SH AS 1310 interface optics, all working at 1310 nm, are optimized for the most widely used SMF-28 fiber, available from many suppliers.

Corning MetroCor fiber is optimized for optical interfaces that transmit at 1550 nm or in the C and L DWDM windows, and targets interfaces with higher dispersion tolerances than those found in OC3 IR/STM1 SH 1310-8, OC12 IR/STM4 SH 1310, and OC48 IR/STM16 SH AS1310 interface optics. If you are using Corning MetroCor fiber, OC3 IR/STM1 SH 1310-8, OC12 IR/STM4 SH 1310, and OC48 IR/STM16 SH AS 1310 interface optics become dispersion limited before they become attenuation limited. In this case, consider using OC12 LR/STM4 LH 1550 and OC48 LR/STM16 LH 1550 AS cards instead of OC12 IR/STM4 SH and OC48 IR/STM16 SH cards.

With all fiber types, network planners/engineers should review the relative fiber type and optics specifications to determine attenuation, dispersion, and other characteristics to ensure appropriate deployment.

4.10  OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz Cards


Note For specifications, see the "OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz Card Specifications" section.


Eighteen distinct STM-16 ITU 100-GHz DWDM cards comprise the ONS 15454 SDH DWDM channel plan. This plan contains every second wavelength in the ITU grid for 100-GHz-spaced DWDM. Though the ONS 15454 SDH only uses 200-GHz spacing, the cards work in 100-GHz-spaced nodes, as well.

Each OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz card provides one SDH STM-16 port compliant with ITU-T G.692, ITU-T G.707, ITU-T G.957, and ITU-T G.958. The interface operates at 2.488 Gbps over a single-mode fiber span. Each card supports concatenated or nonconcatenated payloads at STM-1, STM-4, or STM-16 signal levels on a per VC-4 basis.


Warning The laser is on when the optical card is booted. The port does not have to be in service for the laser to be on.

Figure 4-9 shows the OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz faceplate and block diagram.

Figure 4-9 OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz Faceplate and Block Diagram

4.10.1  OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz Card Functionality

You can install OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards in Slot 5, 6, 12, and 13. You can provision this card as part of a MS-SPRing or SNCP. In an ADM/TM configuration, you can provision the card as either an access tributary or a transport span interface.

Nine of the 18 available cards operate in the blue band with a spacing of 2 * 100 GHz in the ITU grid (1530.33 nm, 1531.90 nm, 1533.47 nm, 1535.04 nm, 1536.61 nm, 1538.19 nm, 1539.77 nm, 1541.35 nm, and 1542.94 nm). The other nine cards operate in the red band with a spacing of 2 * 100 GHz in the ITU grid (1547.72 nm, 1549.32 nm, 1550.92 nm, 1552.52 nm, 1554.13 nm, 1555.75 nm, 1557.36 nm, 1558.98 nm, and 1560.61 nm).

Each OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz card uses extended long-reach optics operating individually within the ITU 100-GHz grid. The OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards are intended to be used in applications with long unregenerated spans of up to 200 km (with mid-span amplification). These transmission distances are achieved through the use of inexpensive optical amplifiers (flat gain amplifiers) such as erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFAs). Using collocated amplification, distances up to 200 km can be achieved for a single channel (160 km for 8 channels).

Maximum system reach in filterless applications is 24 dB, or approximately 80 km, without the use
of optical amplifiers or regenerators. However, system reach also depends on the condition of the facilities, number of splices and connectors, and other performance-affecting factors. The OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards feature wavelength stability of +/- 0.25 nm. Each port contains a transmitter and a receiver.

The OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards are the first in a family of cards meant to support extended long-reach applications in conjunction with optical amplification. Using DFB laser technology, the OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards provide a solution at the lower extended long-reach distances.

The OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz port features a 1550-nm range laser and contains a transmit and receive connector (labeled) on the card faceplate. The card uses SC connectors and supports 1+1 unidirectional and bidirectional protection switching.

The OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards detect LOS, LOF, LOP, MS-AIS, and MS-FERF conditions. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide for a description of these conditions. The cards also count section and line BIP errors.

To enable an MS-SPRing, the OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards extract the K1 and K2 bytes from the SDH overhead. The GCC bytes are forwarded to the TCC2/TCC2P card; the TCC2/TCC2P terminates the GCC.

4.13  OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 Card


Note For specifications, see the "OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 Card Specifications" section.



Note Any new features that are available as part of this software release are not enabled for this card.


The OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 card provides one long-range SDH STM-64 port per card, compliant with ITU-T G.707 and G.957, and Telcordia GR-253-CORE (except minimum and maximum transmit power, and minimum receive power). Also, the port is compliant to ITU-T G.691 (prepublished unedited version 10/2000) L-64.2, except for optical output power and receiver sensitivity.


Note The optical output power of the OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 (+4 dBm to +7 dBm) is 6 dB lower than in L-64.2b of the 10/2000 prepublished unedited version of ITU-T G.691 (+10 dBm to +13 dBm). However, the total attenuation range of the optical path, 22 to 16 dB, is maintained by the optical receiver sensitivity range of the OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 (-7 dBm to -24 dBm). This sensitivity range outperforms the specification in L-64.2b of the 10/2000 prepublished unedited version of ITU-T G.691 as the resulting link budget of the card is 26 dBm.


The port operates at 9.95328 Gbps over unamplified distances up to 80 km with different types of fiber such as C-SMF or dispersion compensated fiber limited by loss and/or dispersion. The card supports concatenated or nonconcatenated payloads on a VC-4 basis, as well as VC-4, VC-3, and VC-12 payloads.

Figure 4-12 shows the OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 faceplate and a block diagram of the card. Figure 4-13 shows an enlarged view of the faceplate warning.


Note You can differentiate this OC-192/STM-64 card (15454E-L64.2-1) from the OC-192/STM-64 card with the product ID 15454-OC192LR1550 by looking at the faceplate. This card does not have a laser on/off switch.



Warning The laser is on when the optical card is booted. The port does not have to be in service for the laser to be on.

4.13.1  OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 Card Functionality

You can install OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 cards in Slot 5, 6, 12, or 13. You can provision this card as part of an MS-SPRing, SNCP, or linear configuration, or also as a regenerator for longer span reaches.

The OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 port features a 1550-nm laser and contains a transmit and receive connector (labeled) on the card faceplate. The card uses a dual SC connector for optical cable termination. The card supports 1+1 unidirectional and bidirectional facility protection. It also supports 1:1 protection in four-fiber bidirectional line switched ring applications where both span switching and ring switching might occur.

The OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 card detects SF, LOS, or LOF conditions on the optical facility. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide for a description of these conditions. The card also counts section and line BIP errors from B1 and B2 byte registers in the section and line overhead.


Caution You must use a 20-dB fiber attenuator (19 to 24 dB) when working with the OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 card in a loopback. Do not use fiber loopbacks with the OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 card. Using fiber loopbacks causes irreparable damage to the OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 card.

4.16  OC192SR1/STM64IO Short Reach and OC192/STM64 Any Reach Cards


Note For specifications, see the "OC192SR1/STM64IO Short Reach Card Specifications" section.


The OC192SR1/STM64IO Short Reach and OC192/STM64 Any Reach cards (also known in CTC as STM64-XFP) each provide a single OC-192/STM-64 interface, as follows:

OC192SR1/STM64IO Short Reach card (SR-1)

OC192/STM64 Any Reach card (SR-1, IR-2, and LR-2)

The interface operates at 9.952 Gbps over single-mode fiber spans and may be provisioned for both concatenated and non-concatenated payloads on a per VC-4/STS-1 basis. Specifications references can be found for the OC-192/STM-64 interface in ITU-T G.691, G.693, and G.959.1 as well as Telcordia GR-253.

The optical interface uses a 10 Gbps Form Factor Pluggable (XFP) optical transceiver that plugs into a receptacle on the front of the card. The OC192/STM-64 SR-1 Short Reach card is used only with an SR-1 XFP, while the OC192/STM-64 Any Reach card can be provisioned for use with an SR-1, IR-2, or LR-2 XFP module. The XFP SR, IR, and LR interfaces each provide one bidirectional OC192/STM64 interface compliant with the recommendations defined by ITU-T G6.91.SR-1 is compliant with I-64.1, IR-2 is compliant with S-64.2b, and LR-2 is compliant with P1L1-2D2.

The cards are used in Slots 5, 6, 12, and 13 and only with 10 Gbps cross-connect cards, such as the XC-VXL-10G and XC-VXC-10G. The cards also must be supported with the TCC2 or TCC2P cards. Figure 4-17 shows the faceplates and block diagram for the two cards.

Figure 4-17 OC192SR1/STM64IO Short Reach and OC192/STM64 Any Reach Card Faceplates and Block Diagram

The cards have spans according to the XFP module used:

A card using the SR-1 XFP is intended to be used in applications requiring 10 Gbps transport with unregenerated spans of up to 2.0 km.

A card using the IR-2 XFP is intended to be used in applications requiring 10 Gbps transport with unregenerated spans of up to 40 km.

A card using the LR-2 XFP is intended to be used in applications requiring 10 Gbps transport with unregenerated spans of up to 80 km.

You can find the status of the OC192SR1/STM64IO Short Reach and OC192/STM64 Any Reach card ports using the LCD screen on the ONS 15454 fan-tray assembly. Use the LCD to view the status of any port or card slot; the screen displays the number and severity of alarms for a given port or slot. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide for a complete description of the alarm messages.

4.17  SFPs and XFPs


Note For specifications, see the "SFP and XFP Specifications" section.


The ONS 15454 Optical cards use industry standard small form-factor pluggable connectors (SFPs) and 10 Gbps (XFP) modular receptacles. This section describes SFPs and XFPs used with optical cards. Currently, the only optical cards that use SFPs and XFPs are the 15454_MRC-12, OC192SR1/STM64IO Short Reach, and OC192/STM64 Any Reach cards.

The type of SFP or XFP plugged into the card appears in CTC and TL1. Cisco offers SFPs as separate orderable products.

4.17.2  SFP Description

SFPs are integrated fiber optic transceivers that provide high speed serial links from a port or slot to the network. Various latching mechanisms are used on the modules. There is no correlation between the type of latch to the model type (such as SX or LX/LH) and the technology type (such as Gigabit Ethernet). See the label on the SFP for technology type and model. One type of latch available is a mylar tab (Figure 4-18), a second type of latch available is an actuator/button (Figure 4-19), and a third type of latch is a bail clasp (Figure 4-20).

SFP dimensions are:

Height 0.03 in. (8.5 mm)

Width 0.53 in. (13.4 mm)

Depth 2.22 in. (56.5 mm)

SFP and XFP temperature ranges for are:

COM—commercial operating temperature range -5°C to 70°C

EXT—extended operating temperature range -5°C to 85°C

IND—industrial operating temperature range -40°C to 85°C

4.17.3  XFP Description

The 10 Gbps 1310  nm and 1550 nm XFP transceivers are integrated fiber optic transceivers that provide high-speed serial links at the following signaling rates: 9.95 Gbps, 10.31 Gbps, and 10.51 Gbps. The XFP integrates the receiver and transmit path. The transmit side recovers and retimes the 10 Gbps serial data and passes it to a laser driver. The laser driver biases and modulates a 1310 nm or 1550 nm distributed feedback (DFB), enabling data transmission over SMF through an LC connector. The receive side recovers and retimes the 10 Gbps optical data stream from a PIN photo detector, transimpedance amplifier and passes it to an output driver.

The XFP module uses the bail clasp latching mechanism as shown unlatched in Figure 4-21 and latched in Figure 4-22. See the label on the XFP for technology type and model.

XFP dimensions are:

Height 0.33 in. (8.5 mm)

Width 0.72 in. (18.3 mm)

Depth 3.1 in. (78 mm)

XFP temperature ranges are:

COM—commercial operating temperature range -5°C to 70°C

EXT—extended operating temperature range -5°C to 85°C

IND—industrial operating temperature range -40°C to 85°C

4.17.4  PPM Provisioning

SFPs and XFPs are known as pluggable-port modules (PPMs) in the ONS 15454 SDH graphical user interface (GUI), CTC. Multirate PPMs for the 15454_MRC-12 card can be provisioned for different line rates in CTC. For more information about provisioning PPMs, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.
