5.2  E100T-G Card


Note For specifications, see the "E100T-G Card Specifications" section.


The ONS 15454 SDH uses E100T-G cards for Ethernet (10 Mbps) and Fast Ethernet (100 Mbps). Each card provides 12 switched, IEEE 802.3-compliant, 10/100BaseT Ethernet ports that can independently detect the speed of an attached device (autosense) and automatically connect at the appropriate speed. The ports autoconfigure to operate at either half or full duplex and determine whether to enable or disable flow control. You can also configure Ethernet ports manually. Figure 5-1 shows the faceplate and a block diagram of the card.

Figure 5-1 E100T-G Faceplate and Block Diagram

The E100T-G Ethernet card provides high-throughput, low-latency packet switching of Ethernet traffic across a SDH network while providing a greater degree of reliability through SDH self-healing protection services. This Ethernet capability enables network operators to provide multiple 10/100-Mbps access drops for high-capacity customer LAN interconnects, Internet traffic, and cable modem traffic aggregation. It enables the efficient transport and co-existence of traditional TDM traffic with packet-switched data traffic.

Each E100T-G card supports standards-based, wire-speed, Layer 2 Ethernet switching between its Ethernet interfaces. The IEEE 802.1Q tag logically isolates traffic (typically subscribers). IEEE 802.1Q also supports multiple classes of service.

5.2.1  E100T-G Slot Compatibility

You can install the E100T-G card in Slots 1 to 6 and 12 to 17. Multiple E-Series Ethernet cards installed in an ONS 15454 SDH can act independently or as a single Ethernet switch. You can create logical SDH ports by provisioning a number of SDH channels to the packet switch entity within the ONS 15454 SDH. Logical ports can be created with a bandwidth granularity of VC-4.

5.2.2  E100T-G Card-Level Indicators

The E100T-G card faceplate has three card-level LED indicators (Table 5-3).

Table 5-3 E100T-G Card-Level Indicators 

Card-Level Indicators
Description

Red FAIL LED

The red FAIL LED indicates that the card processor is not ready or that a catastrophic software failure occurred on the E100T-G card. As part of the boot sequence, the FAIL LED is turned on until the software deems the card operational.

Green ACT LED

The green ACT LED provides the operational status of the E100T-G. If the ACT LED is green, it indicates that the E100T-G card is active and the software is operational.

SF LED

Not used.


5.2.3  E100T-G Port-Level Indicators

The E100T-G card also has 12 pairs of LEDs (one pair for each port) to indicate port conditions (Table 5-4). You can find the status of the E100T-G card port using the LCD screen on the ONS 15454 SDH 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.

Table 5-4 E100T-G Port-Level Indicators 

LED State
Description

Amber

Port is active (transmitting and/or receiving data). By default, indicates the transmitter is active but can be software controlled to indicate link status, duplex status, or receiver active.

Solid Green

Link is established. By default, indicates the link for this port is up, but can be software controlled to indicate duplex status, operating speed, or collision.


5.2.4  E100T-G Compatibility

The E100T-G card is compatible with the XC-VXL-2.5G, XC-VXL-10G, and XC-VXC-10G cards.

5.3  E1000-2-G Card


Note For specifications, see the "E1000-2-G Card Specifications" section.


The ONS 15454 SDH uses E1000-2-G cards for Gigabit Ethernet (1000 Mbps). The E1000-2-G card provides two IEEE-compliant, 1000-Mbps ports for high-capacity customer LAN interconnections. Each port supports full-duplex operation.

The E1000-2-G card uses GBIC modular receptacles for the optical interfaces. For details, see the "Ethernet Card GBICs and SFPs" section.

Figure 5-2 shows the card faceplate and a block diagram of the card.

Figure 5-2 E1000-2-G Faceplate and Block Diagram

The E1000-2-G Gigabit Ethernet card provides high-throughput, low-latency packet switching of Ethernet traffic across a SDH network while providing a greater degree of reliability through SDH self-healing protection services. This enables network operators to provide multiple 1000-Mbps access drops for high-capacity customer LAN interconnects. It enables efficient transport and co-existence of traditional TDM traffic with packet-switched data traffic.

Each E1000-2-G card supports standards-based, Layer 2 Ethernet switching between its Ethernet interfaces and SDH interfaces on the ONS 15454 SDH. The IEEE 802.1Q VLAN tag logically isolates traffic (typically subscribers).

Multiple E-Series Ethernet cards installed in an ONS 15454 SDH can act together as a single switching entity or as independent single switches supporting a variety of SDH port configurations.

You can create logical SDH ports by provisioning a number of SDH channels to the packet switch entity within the ONS 15454 SDH. Logical ports can be created with a bandwidth granularity of VC-4.

5.3.1  E1000-2-G Card-Level Indicators

Not used in this release.


5.3.2  E1000-2-G Port-Level Indicators

The E1000-2-G card also has one bicolor LED per port (Table 5-6). When the LINK LED is illuminated green, carrier is detected, meaning an active network cable is installed. When the LINK LED is not illuminated green, an active network cable is not plugged into the port, or the card is carrying unidirectional traffic. The port ACT LED flashes amber at a rate proportional to the level of traffic being received and transmitted over the port.

Table 5-6 E1000-2-G Port-Level Indicators 

LED State
Description

Amber

The port is active (transmitting and receiving data).

Solid green

The link is established.

Green light off

The connection is inactive, or traffic is unidirectional.


5.3.3  E1000-2-G Compatibility

The E1000-2-G is compatible with any traffic card slots (Slots 1 to 6 and 12 to 17) and with the XC-VXL-2.5G, XC-VXL-10G, and XC-VXC-10G cards.

5.4  G1K-4 Card


Note For specifications, see the "G1K-4 Card Specifications" section.



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


The G1K-4 card is the functional equivalent of the earlier G1000-4 card and provides four ports of IEEE-compliant, 1000-Mbps interfaces. Each interface supports full-duplex operation for a maximum bandwidth of 1 Gbps or 2 Gbps bidirectional per port, and 2.5 Gbps or 5 Gbps bidirectional per card. Each port autonegotiates for full duplex and IEEE 802.3x flow control. The G1K-4 card uses GBIC modular receptacles for the optical interfaces. For details, see the "Ethernet Card GBICs and SFPs" section.

Figure 5-3 shows the card faceplate and the block diagram of the card.

Figure 5-3 G1K-4 Faceplate and Block Diagram

The G1K-4 Gigabit Ethernet card provides high-throughput, low-latency transport of Ethernet encapsulated traffic (IP and other Layer 3 protocols) across a SDH network while providing a greater degree of reliability through SDH self-healing protection services. Carrier-class Ethernet transport is achieved by hitless (< 50 ms) performance in the event of any failures or protection switches (such as 1+1 APS, SNCP, MS-SPRing, or optical equipment protection) and full provisioning and manageability, as in SDH service. Full provisioning support is possible via CTC or CTM. Each G1K-4 card performs independently of the other cards in the same shelf.

5.4.1  G1K-4 Card-Level Indicators

The G1K-4 card faceplate has two card-level LED indicators, described in Table 5-7.

Table 5-7 G1K-4 Card-Level Indicators

5.7.3  ML1000-2 Slot Compatibility

The ML1000-2 card operates in Slots 1 to 6 or 12 to 17 and operates with the XC-VXL-2.5G, XC-VXL-10G, or XC-VXC-10G cards.

5.8  ML-MR-10 Card


Note For specifications, see the "ML-MR-10 Card Specifications" section.


The ML-MR-10 card is a ten-port multilayer Ethernet card for the ONS 15454 SDH. The Ethernet ports support speeds of 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, or 1000 Mbps through pluggable SFPs. SFP modules are offered as separate orderable products for flexibility. For details, see the "Ethernet Card GBICs and SFPs" section.

The ML-MR-10 card supports a resilient packet ring (RPR) interface. RPR uses two POS like interfaces to terminate the SDH circuits. The circuit sizes supported on the RPR interfaces are VC4-4c, VC4-8c, VC4-16c, VC4-32c. A maximum aggregate of STM-64 of bandwidth can terminate on a single card. The RPR interface on ML-MR-10 supports only framed generic framing procedure (GFP-F) encapsulation for SDH.

To configure a ML-MR-10 card SDH STM circuit, refer to the "Create Circuits and Tunnels" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.

Cisco IOS is used to provision the Layer 2 functions of the card. The ML-MR-10 card provides management for Layer 1 operations through CTC. You can use CTM for Layer 1 and Layer 2 monitoring and fault detection, and TL1 supports card inventory and equipment alarming.

Figure 5-7 shows the ML-MR-10 card faceplate and block diagram.

Figure 5-7 ML-MR-10 Faceplate and Block Diagram

The ML-MR-10 card supports 1:1 protection at the port level. It also supports 1:1 card protection with redundant cards installed. For more information on ML-MR-10 protection, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 and Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Ethernet Card Software Feature and Configuration Guide.

The ML-MR-10 card supports the Version Up feature, which allows a user to independently upgrade ML-MR-10 cards as part of an overall software upgrade process. With this feature enabled, the user first upgrades all the cards in the node that are not ML-MR-10 cards, then in a second pass updates the ML-MR-10 cards. For more information on the Version Up feature, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 and Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Ethernet Card Software Feature and Configuration Guide.

The ML-MR-10 card supports an Ethernet Virtual Connection (EVC), which is an instance of an association of two or more user network interfaces (UNI) for Ethernet services. For more information on EVC, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 and Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Ethernet Card Software Feature and Configuration Guide.

5.8.1  ML-MR-10 Card-Level Indicators

The ML-MR-10 card operates in Slots 1 to 6 or 12 to 17 and operates with the XC-VXL-2.5G, XC-VXL-10G, or XC-VXC-10G cards.

5.9  CE-100T-8 Card


Note For specifications, see the "CE-100T-8 Card Specifications" section.


The CE-100T-8 card provides eight RJ-45 10/100 Mbps Ethernet ports accessible on the faceplate. The ports are numbered 1 through 8. The 10/100 Mbps Ethernet traffic on these ports map into SDH payloads for transport over the SDH infrastructure.

The SDH circuit sizes and types supported are:

CCAT sizes of VC-3 and VC-4

Low order (LO) VCAT VC-3 circuit sizes of up to three members: VC-3-1v, VC-3-2v, or VC-3-3v

Low order (LO) VCAT VC-12 circuit sizes of up to 63 members: VC-12-Nv (where N=1 to 63)

VC-3 VCAT circuits map administrative unit 4 (AU-4), and VC-12 VCAT circuits map tributary unit 12 (TU-12).

In addition, the CE-100T-8 card supports GFP-F and point-to-point protocol/high-level data link control (PPP/HDLC) framing protocols. It also supports the link capacity adjustment scheme (LCAS), which allows dynamic reconfiguration of the VC groups.

The CE-100T8 card also supports the link capacity adjustment scheme (LCAS), which allows hitless dynamic adjustment of SDH link bandwidth. The CE-100T-8 card's LCAS is hardware-based, but the CE-100T-8 also supports SW-LCAS. This makes it compatible with the ONS 15454 SDH ML-Series card, which supports only SW-LCAS and does not support the standard hardware-based LCAS. SW-LCAS is supported when a circuit from the CE-100T-8 terminates on the ONS 15454 SDH ML-Series card.

Figure 5-8 shows the CE-100T-8 card faceplate and block diagram.

Figure 5-8 CE-100T-8 Faceplate and Block Diagram

The following paragraphs describe the general functions of the CE-100T-8 card and relate to the block diagram. In the ingress direction, (Ethernet-to-SDH), the PHY, which performs all of the physical layer interface functions for 10/100 Mbps Ethernet, sends the frame to the network processor for queuing in the respective packet buffer memory. The network processor performs packet processing, packet switching, and classification. The Ethernet frames are then passed to the Ethermap where Ethernet traffic is terminated and is encapsulated using HDLC or GFP-F framing on a per port basis.

The encapsulated Ethernet frames are then mapped into a configurable number of concatenated or virtual concatenated payloads.

The SDH SPEs carrying encapsulated Ethernet frames are passed onto the qMDM FPGA, where the STM-1 frames are multiplexed to form an STM-4 frame. The STM-4 frame is transported over the SDH network by means of the Bridging Convergence Transmission (BTC) ASIC.

In the Egress direction (SDH-to-Ethernet), the FPGA extracts four STM-1 frames from the STM-4 frame it receives from the BTC and sends each of the STM-1s to the ET3 mappers. The STM-1 SPE carrying GFP-F or PPP/HDLC encapsulated Ethernet frames is then extracted and buffered in Ethermap's external memory. This memory is used for providing alignment and differential delay compensation for the received virtual concatenated payloads. After alignment and delay compensation have been done, the Ethernet frames are decapsulated with one of the framing protocols (GFP-F or HDLC). Decapsulated Ethernet frames are then passed onto the network processor for QoS queuing and traffic scheduling. The network processor switches the frame to one of the corresponding PHY channels and then to the Ethernet port for external transmission.

For information on the CE-100T-8 QoS features, see the Cisco ONS 15454 and Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Ethernet Card Software Feature and Configuration Guide.

5.9.1  CE-100T-8 Card-Level Indicators

5.9.3  CE-100T-8 Compatibility

The CE-100T-8 card operates in Slots 1 to 6 or 12 to 17 and operates with the XC-VXL-2.5G, XC-VXL-10G, or XC-VXC-10G cards.

5.10  CE-1000-4 Card


Note For hardware specifications, see the "CE-1000-4 Card Specifications" section.


The CE-1000-4 card uses pluggable Gigabit Interface Converters (GBICs) to transport Ethernet traffic over a SDH network. The CE-1000-4 provides four IEEE 802.3-compliant, 1000-Mbps Gigabit Ethernet ports at the ingress. At the egress, the CE-1000-4 card provides an integrated Ethernet over SDH mapper with four virtual ports to transfer Ethernet packets over a SDH network.

The Ethernet ports automatically configure to operate at either half or full duplex and can determine whether to enable or disable flow control. The Ethernet ports can also be oversubscribed using flow control.

The Ethernet frames are encapsulated using the ITU-T generic framing procedure (GFP) (with or without CRC) or LEX, the point-to-point protocol (PPP) with high-level data link control (HDLC). The CE-1000-4 card can interoperate with G1K-4 cards (using LEX encapsulation), CE-100T-8 cards (using LEX or GFP-F), and ML-Series cards (using LEX or GFP-F).

The Ethernet frames can be mapped into:

Virtual concatenated (VCAT) payloads: VC-4-nv where n is 1 to 7.


Note The CE-1000-4 card does not support VC-3 member sizes.


Contiguously concatenated (CCAT) SDH payloads: VC-4, VC-4-2c, VC-4-3c, VC-4-4c, VC-4-6c, VC-4-8c, and VC-4-16c.

To configure a CE-1000-4 card SDH circuit, refer to the "Create Circuits and Low-Order Tunnels" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.

The CE-1000-4 card provides multiple management options through CTC, CTM, TL1, and SNMP.

The CE-1000-4 card supports SW-LCAS. This makes it compatible with the ONS 15454 ML-Series cards. The CE-1000-4 card supports VCAT groups (VCGs) that are reconfigurable when SW-LCAS is enabled (flexible VCGs). The CE-1000-4 card does not support the standard hardware-based LCAS.

The following guidelines apply to flexible VCGs:

Members can be added or removed from VCGs.

Members can be put into or out of service.

Cross-connects can be added or removed from VCGs.

Errored members will be automatically removed from VCGs.

Adding or removing members from the VCG is service affecting.

Adding or removing cross connects from the VCG is not service affecting if the associated members are not in group.

The CE-1000-4 card supports a non link capacity adjustment scheme (no-LCAS). This also makes it compatible with the ONS 15454 ML-Series cards. The CE-1000-4 card supports VCAT groups (VCGs) that are fixed and not reconfigurable when no-LCAS is enabled (fixed VCGs).

The following guidelines apply to fixed VCGs:

Members can be added or removed from VCGs using CTC or TL1.

Members cannot be put into or out of service unless the force command mode is instantiated.


Note This is possible with CTC as it assumes the force command mode by default. However, to put members into or out of service using TL1, the force command mode must be set.


Cross-connects can be added or removed from VCGs using CTC or TL1. This is service affecting as long as the VCG size (TXCOUNT) is not realigned with the loss of connections.

The CE-1000-4 card supports VCAT differential delay and provides these associated features:

Supports a maximum VCG differential delay of 122 ms in each direction.

Supports all protection schemes (SNCP, two-fiber MS-SPRing, four-fiber MS-SPRing) on VCAT circuits that are split-fiber routed.

Supports two-fiber MS-SPRing on VCAT circuits that are common-fiber routed.

Differential delay compensation is automatically enabled on VCAT circuits that are diverse (split fiber) routed, and disabled on VCAT circuits that are common fiber routed.

5.12.3  GBIC Description

GBICs are integrated fiber-optic transceivers that provide high-speed serial links from a port or slot to the network. Various latching mechanisms can be used on the GBIC modules. There is no correlation between the type of latch and the model type (such as SX or LX/LH) or technology type (such as Gigabit Ethernet). See the label on the GBIC for technology type and model. One GBIC model has two clips (one on each side of the GBIC) that secure the GBIC in the slot on the Ethernet card; the other has a locking handle. Both types are shown in Figure 5-11.

5.12.4  DWDM and CWDM GBICs

DWDM (15454-GBIC-xx.x, 15454E-GBIC-xx.x) and CWDM (15454-GBIC-xxxx, 15454E-GBIC-xxxx) GBICs operate in the G1K-4 card when the card is configured in Gigabit Ethernet Transponding mode or in Ethernet-over-SDH mode. DWDM and CWDM GBICs are both wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) technologies and operate over single-mode fibers with SC connectors. Cisco CWDM GBIC technology uses a 20 nm wavelength grid and Cisco ONS 15454 SDH DWDM GBIC technology uses a 1 nm wavelength grid. CTC displays the specific wavelengths of the installed CWDM or DWDM GBICs. DWDM wavelengths are spaced closer together and require more precise lasers than CWDM. The DWDM spectrum allows for optical signal amplification. For more information on G1K-4 card transponding mode, see the Cisco ONS 15454 and Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Ethernet Card Software Feature and Configuration Guide.

The DWDM and CWDM GBICs receive across the full 1300-nm and 1500-nm bands, which includes all CWDM, DWDM, LX/LH, ZX wavelengths, but transmit on one specified wavelength. This capability can be exploited in some of the G1K-4 transponding modes by receiving wavelengths that do not match the specific transmission wavelength.


Note G1K-4 cards with the Common Language Equipment Identification (CLEI) code of WM5IRWPCAA (manufactured after August 2003) support CWDM and DWDM GBICs. G1K-4 cards manufactured prior to August 2003 do not support CWDM or DWDM GBICs.


The ONS 15454 SDH-supported CWDM GBICs reach up to 100 to 120 km over single-mode fiber and support eight wavelengths as shown in Table 5-28.

CWDM or DWDM GBICs for the G1K-4 card come in set wavelengths and are not provisionable. The wavelengths are printed on each GBIC, for example, CWDM-GBIC-1490. The user must insert the specific GBIC transmitting the wavelength required to match the input of the CWDM/DWDM device for successful operation (Figure 5-12). Follow your site plan or network diagram for the required wavelengths.

5.12.5  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 can be utilized on the SFP modules. There is no correlation between the type of latch to the model type (such as SX or LX/LH) or 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 5-14), a second type of latch available is an actuator/button (Figure 5-15), and a third type of latch is a bail clasp (Figure 5-16).

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 temperature ranges for are:

COM—Commercial operating temperature range, -5 degrees C to 70 degrees C (23 degrees F to 158 degrees F)

EXT—Extended operating temperature range, -5 degrees C to 85 degrees C (23 degrees F to 185 degrees F)

IND—Industrial operating temperature range, -40 degrees C to 85 degrees C (-40 degrees F to 185 degrees F)
