Note The terms "Unidirectional Path Switched Ring" and "UPSR" may appear in Cisco literature. These terms do not refer to using Cisco ONS 15xxx products in a unidirectional path switched ring configuration. Rather, these terms, as well as "Path Protected Mesh Network" and "PPMN," refer generally to Cisco's path protection feature, which maybe used in any topological network configuration. Cisco does not recommend using its path protection feature in any particular topological network configuration.


This chapter explains how to install the Cisco ONS 15454 cards and fiber-optic cable.

Before You Begin

This section lists the chapter procedures (NTPs). Turn to a procedure for applicable tasks (DLPs).

6. A316 Install the Filler Cards—Complete as needed.

7. A247 Install Fiber-Optic Cables—Complete this procedure to install fiber-optic cable on optical cards.

8. A245 Route Fiber-Optic Cables—Complete as needed.

9. A116 Remove and Replace a Card—Complete this procedure as needed to remove and replace a card, including deleting the card from Cisco Transport Controller (CTC) and changing an OC-N card without losing the card's provisioning.

10. A20 Replace the Front Door—If the front door was removed, complete this procedure to replace the front door and ground strap after installing cards and fiber-optic cable.


Warning Only trained and qualified personnel should be allowed to install, replace, or service this equipment. Statement 1030

Warning Filler cards serve three important functions: they prevent exposure to hazardous voltages and currents inside the chassis; they contain electromagnetic interference (EMI) that might disrupt other equipment; and they direct the flow of cooling air through the chassis. Do not operate the system unless all cards and faceplates are in place. Statement 156

NTP-A15 Install the Common Control Cards

Purpose

This procedure describes how to install the common control cards.

Tools/Equipment

Warning During this procedure, wear grounding wrist straps to avoid electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage to the card. Do not directly touch the backplane with your hand or any metal tool, or you could shock yourself. Statement 94

Warning The intra-building ports of the equipment or subassembly is suitable for connection to intra-building or unexposed wiring or cabling only. The intra-building port(s) of the equipment or subassembly must not be metallically connected to interfaces that connect to the OSP or its wiring. These interfaces are designed for use as intra-building interfaces only (Type 2 or Type 4 ports as described in GR-1089-CORE, Issue 4) and require isolation from the exposed OSP cabling. The addition of Primary Protectors is not sufficient protection in order to connect these interfaces metallically to OSP wiring.

Warning The intra-building ports of this card are suitable for connection only to shielded intra-building cabling grounded at both ends.

Caution Always use the supplied ESD wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the lower-right outside edge of the shelf assembly.


Caution If protective clips are installed on the backplane connectors of the cards, remove the clips before installing the cards.


Note If you install a card incorrectly, the FAIL LED flashes continuously.



Step 1 If you plan to install XCVT cards, review Table 2-1 to determine card/slot compatibility. If you plan to install XC10G or XC-VXC-10G cards, review Table 2-2 to determine card/slot compatibility.

Step 2 Complete the "DLP-A36 Install the TCC2/TCC2P Cards" task.

Step 3 Complete the "DLP-A37 Install the XCVT, XC10G, or XC-VXC-10G Cards" task.

Step 4 Complete the "DLP-A41 Install the Alarm Interface Controller-International Card" task, as needed.


Note If you install the wrong card in a slot, see the "NTP-A116 Remove and Replace a Card" procedure.


Step 5 Install the traffic cards. To determine the appropriate procedure for a particular card, see the NTP list in the "Before You Begin" section.

In Table 2-1, X indicates that a card is supported in the slot. The multiservice (traffic) slots, Slots 1 to 6 and 12 to 17, include four slots (Slots 5, 6, 12, and 13) that have four times the bandwidth of the other multiservice slots.


Note The XC card is compatible with most cards but does not support features new to Release 5.0 and greater. See the Cisco ONS 15454 Reference Manual for more information about XC card compatibility.



Note For specific slot restrictions for a particular card, consult the card reference section for that card in the Cisco ONS 15454 Reference Manual.

NTP-A16 Install Optical Cards and Connectors

Purpose

This procedure describes how to install optical cards (OC-3, OC-12, OC-48, OC-192, MRC-12, and MRC-2.5G-4). The 15454_MRC-12 (multirate), MRC-2.5G-4, OC192SR1/STM64IO Short Reach, and OC192/STM64 Any Reach (known in CTC as OC192-XFP) cards require small form-factor pluggables (SFPs/XFPs) to provide the fiber interface to the cards. On all other optical cards, the fiber is plugged directly into the card. Install according to site plan, if available.

Tools/Equipment

OC-3, OC-12, OC-48, OC-192, MRC-2.5G-4, and MRC-12 cards (as applicable)

Prerequisite Procedures

A15 Install the Common Control Cards

Required/As Needed

As needed

Onsite/Remote

Onsite

Security Level

None



Warning During this procedure, wear grounding wrist straps to avoid ESD damage to the card. Do not directly touch the backplane with your hand or any metal tool, or you could shock yourself. Statement 94

Warning Class I (CDRH) and Class 1M (IEC) laser products. Statement 1055

Warning Invisible laser radiation could be emitted from the end of the unterminated fiber cable or connector. Do not stare into the beam directly with optical instruments. Viewing the laser output with certain optical instruments (for example, eye loupes, magnifiers, and microscopes) within a distance of 100 mm could pose an eye hazard. Statement 1056

Warning Use of controls, adjustments, or performing procedures other than those specified may result in hazardous radiation exposure. Statement 1057

The following warning only applies to OC-192 cards with safety keys.


Warning The laser is on when the card is booted and the safety key is in the on position (labeled 1). The port does not have to be in service for the laser to be on. The laser is off when the safety key is off (labeled 0). Statement 293

Caution Always use the supplied ESD wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the lower-right outside edge of the shelf assembly.


Caution When TCC is rebooted after running the VxWorks command to delete database, perform the following steps:

1) I/O cards, OC3-8, OC12-4, OC48-AS (in low-speed slots),OC192, and MRC-12, need to be plugged out after running the VxWorks command to delete database and before rebooting TCC.

2) I/O cards, OC3-8, OC12-4, OC48-AS (in low-speed slots),OC192, and MRC-12, need to be plugged in after TCC comes to ACTIVE.

The above steps are applicable even in the power cycle of the NODE after running the VxWorks command to delete database on the TCC.


Note If protective clips are installed on the backplane connectors of the cards, remove the clips before installing the cards.



Note To simplify path protection to bidirectional line switched ring (BLSR) conversion and node addition, install optical cards according to a high-speed east (Slots 12 and 13) and west (Slots 5 and 6) configuration. This configuration is not mandatory.



Note During the boot process, an Out-of-Service (OOS) OC-N port will output a Line Alarm Indication Signal (AIS-L) to any In-Service (IS) far-end receivers. See the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide for further information about the AIS-L condition.



Step 1 If you installed XCVT cards, review Table 2-1 to determine card/slot compatibility. If you installed XC10G or XC-VXC-10G cards, review Table 2-2 to determine card/slot compatibility.

Install higher-capacity cards first; for example, install an OC-192 card before installing an OC-48 card. Let each card completely boot before installing the next card.


Note "OC192SR1/STM64IO Short Reach" and "OC192/STM64 Any Reach" are the titles that appear on the faceplates of the OC192-XFP cards. In CTC, the cards are abbreviated as "OC192-XFP."


Before installing a MRC-12 card, review Table 2-3 for bandwidth limitations based on the slot where the card is installed and the type of cross-connect card installed in the shelf.

Table 2-3 Maximum Bandwidth by Shelf Slot for the MRC-12 in Different XC Configurations

Refer to the card's reference section in the "Optical Cards" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 Reference Manual for more information about slot and bandwidth restrictions.

Step 2 Open the card latches/ejectors.

Step 3 Use the latches/ejectors to firmly slide the optical card along the guide rails until the card plugs into the receptacle at the back of the slot. If you install a card incorrectly, the FAIL LED flashes continuously.


Note If you install the wrong card in a slot, complete the "NTP-A116 Remove and Replace a Card" procedure.


Step 4 Verify that the card is inserted correctly and close the latches/ejectors on the card. 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.

Step 5 Verify the LED activity:

The red FAIL LED turns on for 20 to 30 seconds.

The red FAIL LED blinks for 35 to 45 seconds.

All LEDs blink once and turn off for 5 to 10 seconds.

The ACT or ACT/STBY LED becomes amber. The signal fail (SF) LED can persist until all card ports connect to their far-end counterparts and a signal is present.

Step 6 If the card does not boot up properly, or the LED activity does not mimic Step 5, check the following:

When a physical card type does not match the type of card provisioned for that slot in CTC, the card might not boot. If an optical card does not boot, open CTC and ensure that the slot is not provisioned for a different card type before assuming the card is faulty.

If the red FAIL LED does not turn on, check the power.

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

If the red FAIL LED is on continuously or the LEDs behave erratically, the card is not installed properly. Remove the card and repeat Steps 2 to 5.

Step 7 The MRC-12 card requires SFPs and the OC192SR1/STM64IO Short Reach and OC192/STM64 Any Reach (OC192-XFP) cards require XFPs to provide a fiber interface. If you installed any of these cards, complete the "DLP-A469 Install a GBIC or SFP/XFP Device" task. If you want to preprovision the SFPs or XFPs before installing them, complete the "DLP-A461 Preprovision an SFP or XFP Device" task.

Step 8 When you are ready to install fiber, continue with the "NTP-A247 Install Fiber-Optic Cables" procedure.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.

Warning During this procedure, wear grounding wrist straps to avoid ESD damage to the card. Do not directly touch the backplane with your hand or any metal tool, or you could shock yourself. Statement 94

Warning The intra-building ports of the equipment or subassembly is suitable for connection to intra-building or unexposed wiring or cabling only. The intra-building port(s) of the equipment or subassembly must not be metallically connected to interfaces that connect to the OSP or its wiring. These interfaces are designed for use as intra-building interfaces only (Type 2 or Type 4 ports as described in GR-1089-CORE, Issue 4) and require isolation from the exposed OSP cabling. The addition of Primary Protectors is not sufficient protection in order to connect these interfaces metallically to OSP wiring.

Warning The intra-building ports of this card are suitable for connection only to shielded intra-building cabling grounded at both ends.

Caution Always use the supplied ESD wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the lower-right outside edge of the shelf assembly.


Caution Do not install low-density DS-1 cards in the same side of the shelf as DS3/EC1-48 cards.


Caution Do not install a DS3/EC1-48 card in Slots 1 or 2 if you have installed an MXP_2.5G_10G card in Slot 3. Likewise, do not install a DS3/EC1-48 in Slots 16 or 17 if you have installed an MXP_2.5G_10G card in Slot 15. If you do, the cards will interact and cause DS-3 bit errors.


Caution When TCC is rebooted after running the VxWorks command to delete database, perform the following steps:

1) I/O card, DS3/EC1, need to be plugged out after running the VxWorks command to delete database and before rebooting TCC.

2) I/O card, DS3/EC1, need to be plugged in after TCC comes to ACTIVE.

The above steps are applicable even in the power cycle of the NODE after running the VxWorks command to delete database on the TCC.


Note If protective clips are installed on the backplane connectors of the cards, remove the clips before installing the cards.



Note Install higher-capacity cards first; for example, install a DS-3 card before installing a DS-1 card. Let each card boot completely before installing the next card.



Note If you are installing OC-N, transponder (TXP), or muxponder (MXP) cards, Cisco recommends that you install these before you install electrical cards, as applicable.



Step 1 If you installed XC or XCVT cards, review Table 2-1 to determine card/slot compatibility. If you installed XC10G or XC-VXC-10G cards, review Table 2-2 to determine card/slot compatibility.

Step 2 Open the card latches/ejectors.

Step 3 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.


Note If you install the wrong card in a slot, complete the "NTP-A116 Remove and Replace a Card" procedure.


Step 4 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.


Step 5 Verify the LED activity:

The red FAIL LED turns on for 10 to 15 seconds.

The red FAIL LED blinks for 30 to 40 seconds.

All LEDs blink once and turn off for 1 to 5 seconds.

The ACT or ACT/STBY LED turns on. The SF LED can persist until all card ports connect to their far-end counterparts and a signal is present.

Step 6 If the card does not boot up properly, or the LED activity does not mimic Step 5, check the following:

If the red FAIL LED does not turn on, check the power.

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

If the red FAIL LED is on continuously or the LEDs behave erratically, the card is not installed properly. Remove the card and repeat Steps 2 to 5.
