6.1  Card Overview

The card overview section contains card overview, software compatibility, interface class, and channel allocation information for optical add/drop cards.


Note Each card is marked with a symbol that corresponds to a slot (or slots) on the ONS 15454 shelf assembly. The cards are then installed into slots displaying the same symbols. See the "Card Slot Requirements" section for a list of slots and symbols.


Optical Add/Drop cards are divided into two groups: band optical add/drop multiplexer (OADM) and channel OADM cards. Band OADM cards add and drop one or four bands of adjacent channels. The cards in this chapter, including the 4-Band OADM (AD-4B-xx.x) and the 1-Band OADM (AD-1B-xx.x) are utilized only in the C band. Channel OADM cards add and drop one, two, or four adjacent channels; they include the 4-Channel OADM (AD-4C-xx.x), the 2-Channel OADM (AD-2C-xx.x), and the 1-Channel OADM (AD-1C-xx.x).


Note For information about L band add and drop capability, see Chapter 7 "Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Cards."

6.1.4  DWDM Card Channel Allocation Plan

ONS 15454 DWDM channel OADM and band OADM cards are designed for use with specific channels in the C band. In most cases, the channels for these cards are either numbered (for example, 1 to 32) or delimited (odd or even). Client interfaces must comply with these channel assignments to be compatible with the ONS 15454 system.

Table 6-6 lists the channel IDs and wavelengths assigned to the C-band DWDM channels.


Note In some cases, a card uses only some or all of the channels listed in a band. Also, some cards use channels on the 100-GHz ITU-T grid while others use channels on the 50-GHz ITU-T grid. See specific card descriptions in "Hardware Specifications," for more details.

6.3  AD-1C-xx.x Card


Note See the "AD-1C-xx.x Card Specifications" section for hardware specifications.


The 1-Channel OADM (AD-1C-xx.x) card passively adds or drops one of the 32 channels utilized within the 100-GHz-spacing of the DWDM card system. Thirty-two versions of this card—each designed only for use with one wavelength—are used in the ONS 15454 DWDM system. Each wavelength version of the card has a different part number. The AD-1C-xx.x can be installed in Slots 1 to 6 and 12 to 17.

The AD-1C-xx.x has the following internal features:

Two cascaded passive optical interferential filters perform the channel add and drop functions.

One software-controlled variable optical attenuator (VOA) regulates the optical power of the inserted channel.

Software-controlled VOA regulates the insertion loss of the express optical path.

VOA settings and functions, photodiode detection, and alarm thresholds, are internally controlled.

Virtual photodiodes (firmware calculations of port optical power) at the common DWDM output and input ports are monitored within the software.

Figure 6-6 shows the AD-1C-xx.x faceplate.

Figure 6-6 AD-1C-xx.x Faceplate

The amber SF LED indicates a signal failure. The SF LED also illuminates when the transmitting and receiving fibers are incorrectly connected. When the fibers are properly connected, the LED turns off.


6.3.3  AD-1C-xx.x Port-Level Indicators

You can find the status of the card port 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. The AD-1C-xx.x has six LC-PC-II optical ports: two for add/drop channel client input and output, two for express channel input and output, and two for communication.

6.4  AD-2C-xx.x Card


Note See the "AD-2C-xx.x Card Specifications" section for hardware specifications.


The 2-Channel OADM (AD-2C-xx.x) card passively adds or drops two adjacent 100-GHz channels within the same band. Sixteen versions of this card—each designed for use with one pair of wavelengths—are used in the ONS 15454 DWDM system. The card bidirectionally adds and drops in two different sections on the same card to manage signal flow in both directions. Each version of the card has a different part number.

The AD-2C-xx.x has the following features:

Passive cascade of interferential filters perform the channel add and drop functions.

Two software-controlled VOAs in the add section, one for each add port, regulate the optical power of inserted channels.

Software-controlled VOAs regulate insertion loss on express channels.

VOA settings and functions, photodiode detection, and alarm thresholds are internally controlled.

Virtual photodiodes (firmware calculation of port optical power) at the common DWDM output and input ports are monitored within the software.

Note See the "AD-4C-xx.x Card Specifications" section for hardware specifications.


The 4-Channel OADM (AD-4C-xx.x) card passively adds or drops all four 100-GHz-spaced channels within the same band. Eight versions of this card—each designed for use with one band of wavelengths—are used in the ONS 15454 DWDM system. The card bidirectionally adds and drops in two different sections on the same card to manage signal flow in both directions. There are eight versions of this card with eight part numbers.

The AD-4C-xx.x has the following features:

Passive cascade of interferential filters perform the channel add and drop functions.

Four software-controlled VOAs in the add section, one for each add port, regulate the optical power of inserted channels.

Two software-controlled VOAs regulate insertion loss on express and drop path, respectively.

Internal control of the VOA settings and functions, photodiode detection, and alarm thresholds.

Software-monitored virtual photodiodes (firmware calculation of port optical power) at the common DWDM output and input ports.
