Note If the system loses power or both TCC2/TCC2P cards are reset and the system is not provisioned to get the time from a Network Time Protocol/Simple Network Time Protocol (NTP/SNTP) server, you must reset the ONS 15454 clock. After powering down, the date defaults to January 1, 1970, 00:04:15. To reset the clock, see the "NTP-A25 Set Up Name, Date, Time, and Contact Information" procedure. If you are using the TCC2/TCC2P cards, the system clock will be kept running for up to three hours. In this case, no action would be required.



Note If you encounter problems with the power supply, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide.



Step 1 Connect the office power according to the fuse panel engineering specifications.

Step 2 Measure and cut the cables as needed to reach the ONS 15454 from the fuse panel. Figure 17-10 shows the ONS 15454 power terminals.

Step 3 Dress the power cabling according to local site practice.

Figure 17-10 Cisco ONS 15454 Power Terminals

Step 4 Remove or loosen the #8 power terminal screws on the ONS 15454. To avoid confusion, label the cables connected to the BAT1/RET1 (A) power terminals as 1, and the cables connected to the BAT2/RET2 (B) power terminals as 2.


Note Use only pressure terminal connectors, including ring, fork, and dual-lug types, when terminating the battery, battery return, and frame ground conductors.



Caution Before you make any crimp connections, coat all bare conductors (battery, battery return, and frame ground) with an appropriate antioxidant compound. Bring all unplated connectors, braided strap, and bus bars to a bright finish, then coat with an antioxidant before you connect them. You do not need to prepare tinned, solder-plated, or silver-plated connectors and other plated connection surfaces, but always keep them clean and free of contaminants.


Caution When terminating power, return, and frame ground, do not use soldering lug, screwless (push-in) connectors, quick-connect, or other friction-fit connectors.

Step 5 Strip 1/2 inch (12.7 mm) of insulation from all power cables that you will use.

Step 6 Crimp the lugs onto the ends of all power leads.


Note When terminating battery and battery return connections as shown in Figure 17-10, follow a torque specification of 10 in-lb.


Step 7 Terminate the return 1 lead to the RET1 backplane terminal. Use oxidation-prevention grease to keep connections noncorrosive.

Step 8 Terminate the negative 1 lead to the negative BAT1 backplane power terminal. Use oxidation prevention grease to keep connections noncorrosive.

Step 9 If you use redundant power leads, terminate the return 2 lead to the positive RET2 terminal on the ONS 15454. Terminate the negative 2 lead to the negative BAT2 terminal on the ONS 15454. Use oxidation-preventative grease to keep connections noncorrosive.


Note The configured ONS 15454 shelf can work with a single power line since the ONS 15454 power configuration offers redundancy. When using the 15454-FTA3 fan tray, if the ONS15454 shelf is powered by a single power line, the BAT-FAIL alarm appears, the fans run at a maximum speed, and the system does not comply with NEBS GR-63 Issue 3 and GR-1089 Issue 4 and 5 requirements. In order to meet the above mentioned NEBS requirements, the ONS 15454 shelf must be powered by both the DC power lines.


Step 10 Route the cables out below the power terminals using the plastic cable clamp, as shown in Figure 17-10.

Step 11 Connect the return cables to earth ground at power supply side.

Note Rather than using the LAN wires, you can use the LAN connection port on the TCC2/TCC2P if preferred. Use either the backplane connection or the TCC2/TCC2P front connection. You cannot use the LAN backplane pins and the LAN connection port on the TCC2/TCC2P simultaneously; however, it is possible for you to make a direct connection from a computer to the LAN connection port on the TCC2/TCC2P while the LAN backplane pins are in use, as long as the computer that is connected directly to the TCC2/TCC2P is not connected to the same LAN.
The LAN ports of the ONS15454 are suitable for connection only to shielded intra-building cabling grounded at both ends (STP cables).



Step 1 Using #22 or #24 AWG (0.51 mm² or 0.64 mm²) wire or CAT-5 STP Ethernet cable, wrap the wires on the appropriate wire-wrap pins according to local site practice.


Caution Crosstalk might result if both receive (Rx) and transmit (Tx) pins connect on the same twisted pair of wires from the CAT-5 cable. The two Tx pins need to be on one twisted pair, and the two Rx pins need to be on another twisted pair.

A frame ground pin is located beneath each pin field (FG2 for the LAN pin field). Wrap the ground shield of the LAN interface cable to the frame ground pin. Table 17-2 shows the LAN pin assignments.

Note The TCC2/TCC2P does not support Ethernet polarity detection. If your Ethernet connection has incorrect polarity (this can only occur with cables that have the receive wire pairs flipped), a "Lan Connection Polarity Reversed" condition is raised. This condition usually occurs during an upgrade or initial node deployment. To correct the situation, ensure that your Ethernet cable has the correct mapping of the wire-wrap pins.

Step 1 Tie wrap or lace the coaxial cables according to local site practice and route the cables through the side cutouts on either side of the ONS 15454. The rubber coated edges of the side cutouts prevent the cables from chafing.

Step 2 Use short lengths of pigtail RG179 to terminate the shelf assembly.

Step 3 Use standard RG59 (735A) cable connected to the RG179 for the remainder of the cable run. When using a 10-foot (3.05-m) section of the RG179, you can attach a maximum length of 437 feet (133 m) of RG59 (735A). When using a 30-foot (9.1-m) section of RG179, you can attach a maximum length of 311 feet (94.8 m) of RG59 (735A).

When using the RG179 cable, the maximum distance available (122 feet, 37.2 m) is less than the maximum distance available with standard RG59 (735A) cable (306 feet, 93.3 m). The maximum distance when using the RG59 (734A) cable is 450 feet (137.2 m). The shorter maximum distance available with the RG179 is due to a higher attenuation rate for the thinner cable. Attenuation rates are calculated using a DS-3 signal:

For RG179, the attenuation rate is 59 dB/kft (dB per kilo-foot) at 22 MHz.

For RG59 (735A), the attenuation rate is 23 dB/kft at 22 MHz.

Use a figure of 5.0 for total cable loss when making calculations. Figure 17-17 shows an example of proper coaxial cable routing.

DLP-A36 Install the TCC2/TCC2P Cards

Purpose

This task installs redundant TCC2/TCC2P cards. The first card you install in the ONS 15454 must be a TCC2/TCC2P card, and it must initialize before you install any cross-connect or traffic cards.

Tools/Equipment

Two TCC2/TCC2P cards

Prerequisite Procedures

Note When installing cards, allow each card to boot completely before installing the next card.



Step 1 Open the latches/ejectors of the TCC2/TCC2P card that you will install.

Step 2 Use the latches/ejectors to firmly slide the card along the guide rails until the card plugs into the receptacle at the back of the slot (Slot 7 or 11).

Step 3 Verify that the card is inserted correctly and close the latches/ejectors on the card.


Note It is possible to close the latches/ejectors when the card is not completely plugged into the backplane. Ensure that you cannot insert the card any further.


If you insert a card into a slot provisioned for a different card, all LEDs turn off.

Step 4 Go to Step a to verify the LED activity on the TCC2 card. For the TCC2P card, go to Step b.

a. For the TCC2 card:

All LEDs turn on briefly. The red FAIL LED and the yellow ACT/STBY LED turn on for about 15 seconds.

The red FAIL LED and the green ACT/STBY LED turn on for about 40 seconds.

The red FAIL LED blinks for about 15 seconds.

The red FAIL LED turns on for about 15 seconds. All LEDs turn on for about 3 seconds before turning off for about 3 seconds.

Both green PWR LEDs turn on for 10 seconds. The PWR LEDs then turn red for 2 to 3 minutes before going to steady green.

While the PWR LEDs are red for two to three minutes, the ACT/STBY, MJ, and MN LEDs turn on, followed by the SNYC LED.

The boot up process is complete when the PWR LEDs turn green and the ACT/STBY remains on. (The ACT/STBY LED will be green if this is the first TCC2 card installed, and amber if this is the second TCC2 card installed.)


Note It might take up to 4 minutes for the A and B power alarms to clear.



Note Alarm LEDs might be on; disregard alarm LEDs until you are logged into Cisco Transport Controller (CTC) and can view the Alarms tab.



Note If you are logged into CTC, the SFTWDOWN alarm might appear as many as two times while the TCC2 card initializes. The alarm should clear after the card completely boots.



Note If the FAIL LED is on continuously, see the tip in Step 8 about the TCC2 card automatic upload.


b. For the TCC2P card:

All LEDs turn on briefly. The red FAIL LED, the yellow ACT/STBY LED, the green SYNC LED, and the green ACO LED turn on for about 15 seconds.

The red FAIL LED and the green ACT/STBY LED turn on for about 30 seconds.

The red FAIL LED blinks for about 3 seconds.

The red FAIL LED turns on for about 15 seconds.

The red FAIL LED blinks for about 10 seconds and then becomes solid.

All LEDs (including the CRIT, MAJ, MIN, REM, SYNC, and ACO LEDs) blink once and turn off for about 5 seconds.

Both green PWR LEDs turn on for 10 seconds. The PWR LEDs then turn red for 2 to 3 minutes before going to steady green. During this time, the ACT/STBY, MJ, and MN LEDs might turn on, followed by the SNYC LED briefly.

The boot up process is complete when the PWR LEDs turn green and the yellow ACT/STBY remains on. (The ACT/STBY LED will be green if this is the first TCC2 card installed, and yellow if this is the second TCC2 card installed.)


Note It might take up to 3 minutes for the A and B power alarms to clear.



Note Alarm LEDs might be on; disregard alarm LEDs until you are logged into CTC and can view the Alarms tab.



Note If you are logged into CTC, the SFTWDOWN alarm might appear as many as two times while the TCC2P card initializes. The alarm should clear after the card completely boots.



Note If the FAIL LED is on continuously, see the tip in Step 8 about the TCC2P card automatic upload.


Step 5 Verify that the ACT/STBY LED is green if this is the first powered-up TCC2/TCC2P card being installed, or yellow for standby if this is the second powered-up TCC2/TCC2P. The IP address, temperature of the node, and time of day appear on the LCD. The default time and date is 12:00 AM, January 1, 1970.

Step 6 The LCD cycles through the IP address (the default is 192.1.0.2), node name, and software version. Verify that the correct software version displays on the LCD. The software text string indicates the node type (SDH or SONET) and software release.(For example: SDH 08.50-05L-20.10 indicates it is an SDH software load, Release 8.50. The numbers following the release number do not have any significance.)

Step 7 If the LCD shows the correct software version, continue with Step 8. If the LCD does not show the correct software version, upgrade the software or remove the TCC2/TCC2P card and install a replacement card.

Refer to the release-specific software upgrade document to replace the software. To exchange the TCC2/TCC2P card, see the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide.

Step 8 Repeat Steps 1 through 7 for the redundant TCC2/TCC2P card.


Tip If you install a standby TCC2/TCC2P card that has a different software version than the active card, the newly installed standby TCC2/TCC2P card automatically copies the software version from the active TCC2/TCC2P card. You do not need to do anything in this situation, but the loading TCC2/TCC2P card does not boot up in the normal manner. When the standby card is first inserted, the LEDs follow most of the sequence listed in Step 4. However, after the red FAIL LED turns on for about 5 seconds, the FAIL LED and the ACT/STBY LED begin to flash alternately for up to 30 minutes while the new software loads onto the active TCC2/TCC2P card. After loading the new software, the upgraded TCC2/TCC2P card's LEDs repeat the sequence from Step 4, and the amber ACT/STBY LED turns on.



Note If you insert a card into a slot provisioned for a different card, all LEDs turn off.



Note Alarm LEDs might be on; disregard alarm LEDs until you are logged into CTC and can view the Alarms tab.


Step 9 Verify that the ACT/STBY LED is amber for standby.

Step 10 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

Note For information about CTC views and navigation, see "CTC Information and Shortcuts."



Step 1 From the computer connected to the ONS 15454, start Netscape (PC or UNIX) or Internet Explorer (PC only):

If you are using a PC, launch Netscape or Internet Explorer from the Windows Start menu or a shortcut icon.

If you are using UNIX, launch Netscape from the command line by typing:

To install Netscape colors for Netscape use, type:

# netscape -install
 
   

To limit Netscape to 32 colors so that if the requested color is not available, Netscape chooses the closest color option, type:

netscape -ncols 32
 
   

Note CTC requires a full 24-color palette to run properly. When using color-intensive applications such as Netscape in UNIX, it is possible that UNIX might run out of colors to use for CTC. The -install or the -ncols 32 command line options limit the number of colors that Netscape uses.


Step 2 In the Netscape or Internet Explorer web address (URL) field, enter the ONS 15454 IP address. For initial setup, the default IP address is 192.1.0.2. (This IP address can appear on the LCD. You can suppress the LCD IP address display using CTC. For more information, see the "DLP-A266 Change IP Settings" task.) Press Enter.


Note If you are logging into ONS 15454 nodes running different releases of CTC software, log into the node running the most recent release. If you log into a node running an older release, you will receive an INCOMPATIBLE-SW alarm for each node in the network running a new release, and CTC will not be able to manage these nodes. To check the software version of a node, select About CTC from the CTC Help menu. This will display the ONS 15454 software version for each node visible on the network view. If the node is not visible, the software version can be read from the LCD display. To resolve an alarm, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide.


If a Java Plug-in Security Warning dialog box appears, complete the "DLP-A418 Install Public-Key Security Certificate" task to install the public-key security certificate required by Software Release 4.1 and later.

After you complete the security certificate dialog box (or if the certificate is already installed), a Java Console window displays the CTC file download status. The web browser displays information about your Java and system environments. If this is the first login, CTC caching messages appear while CTC files are downloaded to your computer. The first time you connect to an ONS 15454, this process can take several minutes. After the download, the CTC Login dialog box appears (Figure 17-24).

Figure 17-24 Logging into CTC

Step 3 In the Login dialog box, type a user name and password (both are case sensitive). For initial setup, type the user name CISCO15 and the password otbu+1.


Note The CISCO15 user is provided with every ONS 15454. CISCO15 has superuser privileges, so you can create other users. You must create another superuser before you can delete the CISCO15 user. CISCO15 is delivered with the otbu+1 password. To change the password for CISCO15, click the Provisioning > Security tabs after you log in and change the password. To set up ONS 15454 users and assign security, go to the "NTP-A30 Create Users and Assign Security" procedure. Additional information about security is provided in the "Security" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 Reference Manual.


Step 4 Each time you log into an ONS 15454, you can make selections on the following login options:

Node Name—Displays the IP address entered in the web browser and a drop-down list of previously entered ONS 15454 IP addresses. You can select any ONS 15454 on the list for the login, or you can enter the IP address (or node name) of any new node where you want to log in.

Additional Nodes—Displays a list of current login node groups. To create a login node group or add additional groups, see the "DLP-A61 Create Login Node Groups" task.

Disable Network Discovery—Check this box to view only the ONS 15454 (and login node group members, if any) entered in the Node Name field. Nodes linked to this node through DCCs are not discovered and will not appear in CTC network view. Using this option can decrease the CTC startup time in networks with many DCC-connected nodes, and reduce memory consumption.

Disable Circuit Management—Check this box to disable discovery of existing circuits. Using this option can decrease the CTC initialization time in networks with many existing circuits and reduce memory consumption. This option does not prevent the creation and management of new circuits.

Step 5 If you keep Disable Network Discovery unchecked, CTC attempts to upgrade the CTC software by downloading more recent versions of the JAR files it finds during the network discovery. Click Yes to allow CTC to download the newer JAR files, or No to prevent CTC from downloading the JAR files.


Note Upgrading the CTC software will overwrite your existing software. You must restart CTC after the upgrade is complete.


Step 6 Click Login.

If the login is successful, the CTC window appears. From here, you can navigate to other CTC views to provision and manage the ONS 15454. If you need to turn up the shelf for the first time, see Chapter 4 "Turn Up a Node." If login problems occur, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide.

Step 1 In node view, click the Provisioning > Timing > General tabs.

Step 2 In the Timing Standard area, make sure that the Current Timing Standard is SONET. If it is not, continue with Step 3. If the Current Timing Standard is SONET, skip to Step 4.

Step 3 Click Change to switch the timing from SDH to SONET.


Note Changing the timing standard reinitializes the node and might affect traffic.


Step 4 In the General Timing area, complete the following information:

Timing Mode—Choose External if the ONS 15454 derives its timing from a BITS source wired to the backplane pins; choose Line if timing is derived from an OC-N card that is optically connected to the timing node. A third option, Mixed, allows you to set both external and line timing references.


Note Because Mixed timing might cause timing loops, Cisco does not recommend its use. Use this mode with care.


SSM Message Set—Choose a synchronization status messaging (SSM) message set. All ONS 15454s can translate Generation 2 message sets, so choose Generation 2 if the ONS 15454 is connected to other ONS 15454s. Choose Generation 1 only when the ONS 15454 is connected to equipment that does not support Generation 2. If a node that has its SSM message set to Generation 1 receives a Generation 2 message, it maps the message down to the next available Generation 1 message. The transit node clock (TNC) and ST3E (Stratum 3E) will become an ST3 (Stratum 3) clock.

Quality of RES—If your timing source supports the reserved S1 byte, set the timing quality here. (Most timing sources do not use RES.) Qualities are displayed in descending quality order as ranges. For example, ST3<RES<ST2 means the timing reference is higher than a Stratum 3 and lower than a Stratum 2. Refer to the "Timing" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 Reference Manual for more information about SSM, including definitions of the SONET timing levels.

Revertive—Select this check box if you want the ONS 15454 to revert to a primary reference source after the conditions that caused it to switch to a secondary timing reference are corrected.

Revertive Time—If Revertive is checked, choose the amount of time the ONS 15454 will wait before reverting to its primary timing source. Five minutes is the default.

Step 5 In the Reference Lists area, complete the following information:


Note You can define up to three timing references for the node and up to six BITS Out references. BITS Out references define the timing references used by equipment that can be attached to the node's BITS Out pins on the backplane. If you attach equipment to BITS Out pins, you normally attach it to a node with Line mode because equipment near the external timing reference can be directly wired to the reference.


NE Reference—Allows you to define three timing references (Ref 1, Ref 2, Ref 3). The node uses Reference 1 unless a failure occurs to that reference, in which case the node uses Reference 2. If Reference 2 fails, the node uses Reference 3, which is typically set to Internal Clock. The internal clock is the Stratum 3 clock provided on the TCC/TCC2P. The options displayed depend on the Timing Mode setting.

If the Timing Mode is set to External, your options are BITS1, BITS2, and Internal Clock.

If the Timing Mode is set to Line, your options are the node's working OC-N cards and Internal Clock. Choose the cards/ports that are directly or indirectly connected to the node wired to the BITS source, that is, the node's trunk (span) cards. Set Reference 1 to the trunk card that is closest to the BITS source. For example, if Slot 5 is connected to the node wired to the BITS source, choose Slot 5 as Reference 1.

If the Timing Mode is set to Mixed, both BITS and OC-N cards are available, allowing you to set a mixture of external BITS and OC-N trunk (span) cards as timing references.

BITS-1 Out/BITS-2 Out—Define the timing references for equipment wired to the BITS Out pins on the backplane. BITS-1 Out and BITS-2 Out are enabled when BITS-1 and BITS-2 facilities are put in service. If Timing Mode is set to External, choose the OC-N card used to set the timing. If Timing Mode is set to Line, you can choose an OC-N card or choose NE Reference to have the BITS-1 Out and/or BITS-2 Out follow the same timing references as the NE.

Step 6 Click the BITS Facilities subtab.

The BITS Facilities section sets the parameters for your BITS1 and BITS2 timing references. Many of these settings are determined by the timing source manufacturer. If equipment is timed through BITS Out, you can set timing parameters to meet the requirements of the equipment.

Step 7 In the BITS In area, complete the following information:

Facility Type—(TCC2P card only) Choose the BITS signal type supported by your BITS clock, either DS1 or 64Khz+8Khz.

BITS In State—If Timing Mode is set to External or Mixed, set the BITS In State for BITS-1 and/or BITS-2 to IS (in service) depending whether one or both BITS input pin pairs on the MIC are connected to the external timing source. If Timing Mode is set to Line, set the BITS In State to OOS (out of service).

Step 8 If BITS In State is set to OOS, continue with Step 9. If the BITS In State is set to IS, complete the following information:

Coding—Choose the coding used by your BITS reference, either B8ZS (binary 8-zero substitution) or AMI (alternate mark inversion).

Framing—Choose the framing used by your BITS reference, either ESF (Extended Super Frame) or SF (D4) (Super Frame).

Sync Messaging—Check this check box to enable SSM. SSM is not available if Framing is set to Super Frame.

Admin SSM—If the Sync Messaging check box is not checked, you can choose the SSM Generation 2 type from the drop-down list.

Step 9 In the BITS Out area, complete the following information, as needed:

Facility Type—Choose the BITS Out signal type, either DS1 or 64 Khz.

BITS Out State—If equipment is connected to the node's BITS output pins on the backplane and you want to time the equipment from a node reference, set the BITS Out State for BITS-1 and/or BITS-2 to IS, depending on which BITS Out pins are used for the external equipment. If equipment is not attached to the BITS output pins, set the BITS Out State to OOS.

Step 10 If the BITS Out State is set to OOS, continue with Step 11. If BITS Out State is set to IS, complete the following information:

Coding—Choose the coding used by your BITS reference, either B8ZS or AMI.

Framing—Choose the framing used by your BITS reference, either ESF or SF (D4).

AIS Threshold—If SSM is disabled or Super Frame is used, choose the quality level where a node sends an alarm indication signal (AIS) from the BITS 1 Out and BITS 2 Out backplane pins. An AIS alarm is raised when the optical source for the BITS reference falls to or below the SSM quality level defined in this field.

LBO—If you are timing an external device connected to the BITS Out pins, choose the distance between the device and the ONS 15454. Options are: 0-133 ft. (default), 124-266 ft., 267-399 ft., 400-533 ft., and 534-655 ft. Line build out (LBO) relates to the BITS cable length.

Note After you have selected the circuit properties in the Circuit Source dialog box according to the specific circuit creation procedure, you are ready to provision the circuit source.



Step 1 From the Node drop-down list, choose the node where the source will originate.

Step 2 From the Slot drop-down list, choose the slot containing the DS1-14, DS1N-14, DS1/E1-56, DS3XM-6, or DS3XM-12 card where the circuit will originate.


Note A VT circuit source or destination can be on the STS grooming endpoint of a portless aggregation circuit.


Step 3 If you chose DS3XM-6 or DS3XM-12 as the card, choose the port from the Port drop-down list.

Step 4 From the DS-1 drop-down list, choose the source DS-1.

Step 5 If you need to create a secondary source, for example, a path protection bridge/selector circuit entry point in a multivendor path protection configuration, click Use Secondary Source and repeat Steps 1 through 4 to define the secondary source. If you do not need to create a secondary source, continue with Step 6.

Step 6 Click Next.

Step 7 From the Node drop-down list, choose the destination (termination) node.

Step 8 From the Slot drop-down list, choose the slot containing the destination card. The destination is typically a DS-1 card. You can also choose an OC-N card to map the DS-1 to a VT1.5 for OC-N transport.

Step 9 Depending on the destination card, choose the destination port, STS, VT, or DS1 from the drop-down lists that appear based on the card selected in Step 8. See Table 6-2 for a list of valid options. CTC does not display ports, STSs, VTs, or DS1s already used by other circuits. If you and another user who is working on the same network choose the same port, STS, VT, port, or DS1 simultaneously, one of you receives a Path in Use error and is unable to complete the circuit. The user with the partial circuit needs to choose new destination parameters.

Step 10 If you need to create a secondary destination, for example, a path protection bridge/selector circuit exit point in a multivendor path protection configuration, click Use Secondary Destination and repeat Steps 7 through 9 to define the secondary destination.

Step 11 Click Next.

Step 12 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

Step 1 In the Route Review/Edit area of the Circuit Creation wizard, click the source node icon if it is not already selected.

Step 2 Starting with a span on the source node, click the arrow of the span you want the circuit to travel. The arrow turns yellow. In the Selected Span area, the From and To fields provide span information. The source STS and VT (DS-1 circuit only) appear.

Step 3 If you want to change the source STS, adjust the Source STS field; otherwise, continue with Step 4.

Step 4 If you want to change the source VT for DS-1 circuits, adjust the Source VT field; otherwise, continue with Step 5.


Note VT is gray (unavailable) for DS-3 circuits.


Step 5 Click Add Span. The span is added to the Included Spans list and the span arrow turns blue.

Step 6 If the Fully Protect Path check box is checked in the Circuit Routing Preferences panel, you must:

Add two spans for all path protection or unprotected portions of the circuit route from the source to the destination.

Add one span for all BLSR or 1+1 portions of route from the source to the destination.

For circuits routed on path protection DRI topologies, provision the working and protect paths as well as spans between the DRI nodes.

Step 7 Repeat Steps 2 through 6 until the circuit is provisioned from the source to the destination node through all intermediary nodes.

Step 1 From the Node drop-down list, choose the node where the circuit will originate.

Step 2 From the Slot drop-down list, choose the slot containing the OC-N card where the circuit originates. (If card capacity is fully utilized, it does not appear in the list.)

Step 3 Depending on the circuit origination card, choose the source port and/or STS from the Port and STS lists. The Port list is only available if the card has multiple ports. STSs do not appear if they are already in use by other circuits.


Note The STSs that appear depend on the card, circuit size, and protection scheme. For example, if you create an STS-3c circuit on an OC-12 card in a path protection configuration, only four STSs are available. If you create an STS-3c circuit on an OC-12 card in a BLSR, two STSs are available because of the BLSR protection characteristics.


Step 4 If you need to create a secondary source, for example, a path protection bridge/selector circuit entry point in a multivendor path protection configuration, click Use Secondary Source and repeat Steps 1 through 3 to define the secondary source.

Step 5 Click Next.

Step 6 From the Node drop-down list, choose the destination node.

Step 7 From the Slot drop-down list, choose the slot containing the OC-N card where the circuit will terminate (destination card). (If a card's capacity is fully utilized, the card does not appear in the list.)

Step 8 Depending on the card selected in Step 2, choose the destination port and/or STS from the Port and STS drop-down lists. The Port drop-down list is available only if the card has multiple ports. The STSs that appear depend on the card, circuit size, and protection scheme.
