Note The ONS 15310MA-SDH can be networked with ONS 15454 nodes running Software Release 9.0 or later. You can log into the ONS 15454 nodes to manage the ONS 15310-MA SDH nodes. However, you must complete the "DLP-H21 Run the CTC Installation Wizard for Windows" task or the "DLP-H22 Run the CTC Installation Wizard for UNIX" task. These tasks install the Release 9.0 software JAR files on your computer. The tasks must be repeated anytime you delete the CTC cache.



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



Step 1 From the computer connected to the ONS 15310-MA SDH, start Mozilla Firefox (PC or UNIX) or Netscape (PC only) to access IPv6 and start Netscape or Internet Explorer to access IPv4.

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

If you are using UNIX, launch Netscape or Mozilla Firefox 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 Netscape or Internet Explorer can be used for IPv4 and Mozilla Firefox or Netscape browser can be used for IPv6.



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 and -ncols 32 command line options limit the number of colors that Netscape uses.


Step 2 In the Netscape or Mozilla Firefox web address (URL) field, enter the ONS 15310-MA SDH IP address. For initial setup, this is the default address, 192.1.0.2. Press Enter.

To log into CTC using an IPv6 address, you must first log into CTC using an IPv4 address and assign an IPv6 address for the node. Then, use the IPv6 address that you assigned to the node to log into CTC. For more information about configuring IPv6 address, see "H39 Provision IP Settings" section. Enter the IPv6 address in the address bar of the browser, enclosed in square brackets.


Note If you are logging into ONS 15310-MA SDH 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 15310-MA SDH software version for each node visible on the network view. To resolve an alarm, refer to the Cisco ONS 15310-MA SDH Troubleshooting Guide.


If a Java Plug-in Security Warning dialog box appears, complete the "DLP-H30 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 15310-MA SDH, this process can take several minutes. After the download, a warning message window appears (Figure 16-20).

Figure 16-19 Warning Message Window

Step 3 Click OK. The CTC Login dialog box appears (Figure 16-20).

Figure 16-20 Logging into CTC

Step 4 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 15310-MA SDH. 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 15310-MA SDH users and assign security, go to the "NTP-H19 Create Users and Assign Security" procedure. Additional information about security is provided in the Cisco ONS 15310-MA SDH Reference Manual.


Step 5 Each time you log into an ONS 15310-MA SDH, you can select the following login options:

Additional Nodes—Displays a list of current login node groups. To create a login node group or to add additional groups, see the "DLP-H31 Create Login Node Groups" task).

Disable Network Discovery—Check this box to view only the ONS 15310-MA SDH (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 start-up time in networks with many DCC-connected nodes and reduces 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 reduces memory consumption. This option does not prevent the creation and management of new circuits.

Step 6 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 7 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 15310-MA SDH. If you need to turn up the shelf for the first time, see Chapter 3 "Turn Up a Node." If login problems occur, refer to the Cisco ONS 15310-MA SDH Troubleshooting Guide.

Caution All network changes should be approved by your network (or LAN) administrator.


Caution Verify that any IPv4 or IPv6 addresses assigned to the node are unique in the network. Duplicate IP addresses in the same network cause loss of visibility.


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

Step 2 Complete the following information in the fields listed:

Node Address—Type the IP address assigned to the ONS 15310-MA SDH node.

Net/Subnet Mask Length—Type the subnet mask length (decimal number representing the subnet mask length in bits) or click the arrows to adjust the subnet mask length. The subnet mask length is the same for all ONS 15310-MA SDH nodes in the same subnet.

MAC Address—(Display only) Displays the ONS 15310-MA SDH IEEE 802 MAC address.

Default Router— If the ONS 15310-MA SDH is connected to a LAN, enter the IP address of the default router. The default router forwards packets to network devices that the ONS 15310-MA SDH cannot directly access. This field is ignored if any of the following are true:

The ONS 15310 is not connected to a LAN.

SOCKS proxy server is enabled and the ONS 15310 is provisioned as an ENE.

OSPF is enabled on both the ONS 15310 and the LAN where the ONS 15310 is connected.

Suppress CTC IP Display—Check this check box if you want to prevent the node IPv4 address and IPv6 address (if enabled) from being displayed in CTC (IP Address field, information area) to users with Provisioning, Maintenance, or Retrieve security levels. If the IP address is not suppressed, both the IPv4 address and IPv6 addresses are shown in the IP Address field.

IPv6 Configuration—Allows provisioning of IPv6 addresses. After you provision an IPv6 address, you can access the device using the IPv6 address. Configure these settings only if you want to enable IPv6 on the node. IPv6 cannot be configured using the LCD push buttons.

Enable IPv6—Select this check box to assign an IPv6 address to the node. The IPv6 Address, Prefix Length, and IPv6 Default Router fields are enabled only if this check box is selected. The check box is disabled by default.


Note ONS 15310MA node can be configured in either normal mode or secure mode. Dual IP addressing through secure mode is available for IPv4 only.If IPv6 is enabled on ONS 15310MA in secure mode, the IPv6 address support applies to the backplane LAN port only. There is no IPv6 address for the front 15310E-CTX-K9 TCP/IP (LAN) port. However, when the 15310E-CTX-K9 card is in normal mode (repeater mode), the IPv6 address support applies to both the backplane LAN port as well as the TCC2P TCP/IP (LAN) port.



Note If TCC2P cards are installed, dual IPv4 addressing through secure mode is available for IPv4 only. If IPv6 is enabled on ONS 15310 with TCC2P in secure mode, IPv6 address support applies to the backplane LAN port only. There is no IPv6 address for the front TCC2P TCP/IP (LAN) port. However, when the TCC2P card is in normal mode (repeater mode), the IPv6 address support applies to both the backplane LAN port as well as the TCC2P TCP/IP (LAN) port.



Note IPv6 address can be enabled only when 'Enable SOCKS Proxy on Port' checkbox is enabled. For IPv6 connectivity, once the SOCKS Proxy is enabled, the ONS 15454 node can be configured as'External Network Element(ENE)' or 'Gateway Network Element(GNE)' or 'SOCKS proxy only' by enabling the suitable radio button.



Note By default, when IPv6 is enabled, the node processes both IPv4 and IPv6 packets on the LAN interface. If you want the node to process only IPv6 packets, you need to disable IPv4 on the node. For more information, see H143 Change Node Access and PM Clearing Privilege


IPv6 Address—Enter the IPv6 address that you want to assign to the node. This IP address is the global unicast IPv6 address. This field is disabled if the Enable IPv6 check box is not selected.

Prefix Length—Enter the prefix length of the IPv6 address. This field is disabled if the Enable IPv6 check box is not selected. The valid range for Prefix Length is 0 - 128.

IPv6 Default Router—Enter the IPv6 address of the default router of the IPv6 NE. This field is disabled if the Enable IPv6 check box is not selected. This field can be set to 0 or 0::0 or 0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0 if any of the following are true:

The ONS 15310 is not connected to a LAN.

The ONS 15310 is provisioned as an end network element (ENE).


Note The ONS 15310 uses NAT-PT internally to support native IPv6. NAT-PT uses the IPv4 address range 128.x.x.x for packet translation. Do not use this address range when you enable IPv6 feature.=



Note You can provision IPv6 in secure or nonsecure mode. To enable secure mode, see "H177 Set Up the ONS 15310-MA SDH in EMS Secure Access" section.


Forward DHCP Request ToCheck this check box to enable Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). Also, enter the DHCP server IP address in the Request To field. The check box is unchecked by default. If you will enable any of the gateway settings to implement the ONS 15310-MA SDH SOCKS proxy server features, leave this field blank.


Note If you enable DHCP, computers connected to an ONS 15310-MA SDH node can obtain temporary IP addresses from an external DHCP server. The ONS 15310 only forwards DHCP requests; it does not act as a DHCP server.


CTX CORBA (IIOP) Listener Port—Sets the ONS 15310 IIOP (Internet Inter-Orb Protocol) listener port used for communication between the ONS 15310 and CTC computers. This field is generally not changed unless the ONS 15310 resides behind a firewall that requires a different port. See the "NTP-H22 Set Up the ONS 15310-MA SDH for Firewall Access" procedure for more information.

Gateway Settings—Provisions the ONS 15310-MA SDH SOCKS proxy server features. Do not select any of these options until you review the SOCKS proxy server scenario in the "Management Network Connectivity" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15310-MA SDH Reference Manual. In SOCKS proxy server networks, the ONS 15310 is either an external network element (ENE), a gateway network element (GNE), or a proxy-only server. Provisioning must be consistent for each NE type.

Enable SOCKS proxy server on port—If checked, the ONS 15310-MA SDH serves as a proxy for connections between CTC clients and ONS 15310 nodes that are DCC-connected to the proxy ONS 15310. The CTC client establishes connections to data communications channel (DCC)-connected nodes through the proxy node. The CTC client does not require IP connectivity to the DCC-connected nodes, only to the proxy ONS 15310. If Enable SOCKS proxy server on port is off, the node does not proxy for any CTC clients. When this box is checked, you can set the node as an ENE or a GNE:

External Network Element (ENE)—Choose this option when the ONS 15310 is not connected to a LAN but has DCC connections to other ONS nodes. A CTC computer connected to the ENE through the CRAFT or LAN port can manage nodes that have DCC connections to the ENE. However, the CTC computer does not have direct IP connectivity to these nodes or to any LAN/WAN that those nodes might be connected to.

Gateway Network Element (GNE)—Choose this option when the ONS 15310 is connected to a LAN and has DCC connections to other nodes. A CTC computer connected to the LAN can manage all nodes that have DCC connections to the GNE, but the CTC computer does not have direct IP connectivity to them. The GNE option isolates the LAN from the DCC network so that IP traffic originating from the DCC-connected nodes and any CTC computers connected to them is prevented from reaching the LAN.

SOCKS Proxy-Only—Choose this option when the ONS 15310 is connected to a LAN and the LAN is separated from the node by a firewall. The SOCKS Proxy Only is the same as the GNE option, except the SOCKS Proxy Only option does not isolate the DCC network from the LAN. Click Apply.

Step 3 Click Yes in the confirmation dialog box.

The 15310E-CTX-K9 reboots, which takes 4 to 6 minutes. Eventually, a "Lost node connection, switching to network view" message appears.

Step 4 Click OK. The network view appears. The node icon is displayed in gray, during which time you cannot access the node.

Step 5 Double-click the node icon when it becomes green.

Step 6 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

Step 1 In node view, click the Provisioning > Network > Static Routing tabs.

Step 2 Click Create.

Step 3 In the Create Static Route dialog box, enter the following:

Destination—Enter the IP address of the computer running CTC. To limit access to one computer, enter the full IP address and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.255. To allow access to all computers on the 192.168.1.0 subnet, enter 192.168.1.0 and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. You can enter a destination of 0.0.0.0 to allow access to all CTC computers that connect to the router.

Mask—Enter a subnet mask. If the destination is a host route (that is, one CTC computer), enter a 32-bit subnet mask (255.255.255.255). If the destination is a subnet, adjust the subnet mask accordingly, for example, 255.255.255.0. If the destination is 0.0.0.0, CTC automatically enters a subnet mask of 0.0.0.0 to provide access to all CTC computers. You cannot change this value.

Next Hop—Enter the IP address of the router port or the node IP address if the CTC computer is connected to the node directly.

Cost—Enter the number of hops between the ONS 15310-MA SDH and the computer.

Step 4 Click OK. Verify that the static route appears in the Static Route window.


Note Static route networking examples are provided in the "Management Network Connectivity" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15310-MA SDH Reference Manual.

Security Level

Provisioning or higher



Step 1 From node view, click the Provisioning > Network > OSPF tabs.

Step 2 On the top left side of the OSPF pane, complete the following:

DCC/GCC OSPF Area ID Table—In dotted decimal format, enter the number that identifies the ONS 15310 nodes as a unique OSPF area ID. It can be any number between 000.000.000.000 and 255.255.255.255. The number must be unique to the LAN OSPF area.

RS-DCC Metric—This value is normally unchanged. It sets a cost for sending packets across the DCC, which is used by OSPF routers to calculate the shortest path. This value should always be higher than the LAN metric. The default RS-DCC metric is 100.

MS-DCC Metric—Sets a cost for sending packets across the Line DCC. This value should always be lower than the RS-DCC metric. The default MS-DCC metric is 33. It is usually not changed.

Step 3 In the OSPF on LAN area, complete the following:

OSPF active on LAN—When checked, enables the ONS 15310-MA SDH OSPF topology to be advertised to OSPF routers on the LAN. Enable this field on ONS 15310 nodes that directly connect to OSPF routers.

LAN Port Area ID—Enter the OSPF area ID (dotted decimal format) for the router port where the ONS 15310-MA SDH is connected. (This number is different from the DCC OSPF Area ID.)

Step 4 By default, OSPF is set to No Authentication. If the OSPF router requires authentication, complete the following steps. If not, continue with Step 5.

a. Click the No Authentication button.

b. In the Edit Authentication Key dialog box, complete the following:

TypeChoose Simple Password.

Enter Authentication Key—Enter the password.

Confirm Authentication Key—Enter the same password to confirm it.

c. Click OK.

The authentication button label changes to Simple Password.

Step 5 Verify that the OSPF priority and intervals settings match the priority and interval settings used by the OSPF router where the ONS 15310-MA SDH is connected. If not, change the settings, as needed.

Router Priority—Selects the designated router for a subnet.

Hello Interval (sec)—Sets the number of seconds between OSPF hello packet advertisements sent by OSPF routers. Ten seconds is the default.

Dead Interval—Sets the number of seconds that will pass while an OSPF router's packets are not visible before its neighbors declare the router down. Forty seconds is the default.

Transit Delay (sec)—Indicates the service speed. One second is the default.

Retransmit Interval (sec)—Sets the time that will elapse before a packet is resent. Five seconds is the default.

LAN Metric—Sets a cost for sending packets across the LAN. This value should always be lower than the DCC metric. Ten is the default.

Step 6 Under OSPF Area Range Table, create an area range table if one is needed:


Note Area range tables consolidate the information that is outside an OSPF area border. One ONS 15310 in the ONS 15310 OSPF area is connected to the OSPF router. An area range table on this node points the router to the other nodes that reside within the ONS 15310 OSPF area.


a. Under OSPF Area Range Table, click Create.

b. In the Create Area Range dialog box, enter the following:

Range Address—Enter the area IP address for the ONS 15310-MA SDH nodes that reside within the OSPF area. For example, if the ONS 15310 OSPF area includes nodes with IP addresses 10.10.20.100, 10.10.30.150, 10.10.40.200, and 10.10.50.250, the range address would be 10.10.0.0.

Range Area ID—Enter the OSPF area ID for the ONS 15310-MA SDH nodes. This is either the ID in the DCC OSPF Area ID field or the ID in the Area ID for LAN Port field.

Mask Length—Enter the subnet mask length. In the Range Address example, this is 16.

Mask—The static route subnet mask value.

Advertise—Check if you want to advertise the OSPF range table.

c. Click OK.

Step 7 If the ONS 15310-MA SDH OSPF area is not physically connected to Area 0, use the following steps to create a virtual link table that will provide the disconnected area with a logical path to Area 0:

a. Under OSPF Virtual Link Table, click Create.

b. In the Create Virtual Link dialog box, complete the following fields (OSPF settings must match OSPF settings for the ONS 15310 OSPF area):

Neighbor—The router ID of the Area 0 router.

Transmit Delay (sec)—The service speed. One second is the default.

Retransmit Int (sec)—Sets the time that will elapse before a packet is resent. Five seconds is the default.

Hello Int (sec)—The number of seconds between OSPF hello packet advertisements sent by OSPF routers. Ten seconds is the default.

Dead Int (sec)—Sets the number of seconds that will pass while an OSPF router's packets are not visible before its neighbors declare the router down. Forty seconds is the default.

Auth Type—If the router where the ONS 15310-MA SDH is connected uses authentication, choose Simple Password. Otherwise, choose No Authentication.

Auth Key—If authentication type is set to Simple Password, the authentication key (password) is listed here.

c. Click OK.

Step 8 After entering ONS 15310-MA SDH OSPF area data, click Apply.

Step 9 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

Onsite or remote

Security Level

Provisioning or higher



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

Step 2 In the General Timing area, complete the following information:

Timing Mode—Choose External if the ONS 15310-MA SDH derives its timing from a BITS source wired to the port on the 15310; choose Line if timing is derived from the STM-M, E1-28, or E1-84 port. A third option, Mixed, allows you to set external and line timing references.


Note Because Mixed timing can 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 15310-MA SDH nodes can translate Generation 2 message sets, so choose Generation 2 if the ONS 15310 is connected to other ONS 15310 nodes. Choose Generation 1 only when the ONS 15310 is connected to equipment that does not support Generation 2. If a node that has its SSM Message Set 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 become an ST3.

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 in the Cisco ONS 15310-MA SDH Reference Manual for more information about SSM, including definitions of the SDH timing levels.

Revertive—Check this check box if you want the ONS 15310-MA SDH to revert to a primary reference source after the conditions that caused it to switch to a secondary timing reference are corrected.

Reversion Time—If Revertive is checked, choose the amount of time the ONS 15310-MA SDH will wait before reverting to its primary timing source. Five minutes is the default.

Step 3 In the Reference Lists area, complete the following information:


Note You can define up to three timing references for the node and up to three BITS-1 Out references. BITS-1 Out reference defines the timing reference used by equipment that can be attached to the node's BITS Out connection. If you attach equipment to the BITS Out connection, 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 15310E-CTX-K9. The options displayed depend on the Timing Mode setting.

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

If the Timing Mode is set to Line, your options are the 15310E-CTX-K9 and Internal Clock. Choose the port that is directly or indirectly connected to the node wired to the BITS source, that is, the BITS port on the ONS 15310-MA SDH. Set Reference 1 to the port that is closest to the BITS source. For example, if the E1 port is connected to the node wired to the BITS source, choose Slot 2 (CTX), Port 1 (E1) as Reference 1.

If the Timing Mode is set to Mixed, both BITS and the 15310E-CTX-K9 are available, allowing you to set a mixture of external BITS and the CTX as timing references.

BITS-1 Out—Define the timing references for equipment wired to the BITS Out connection on the 15310E-CTX-K9. BITS-1 Out is enabled when BITS-1 facilities are put in service. If Timing Mode is set to external, choose the port used to set the timing. If Timing Mode is set to Line, you can choose a port or choose NE Reference to have the BITS-1 Out follow the same timing references as the NE.

Step 4 Click Apply.


Note Refer to the Cisco ONS 15310-MA SDH Troubleshooting Guide for timing-related alarms.


Step 5 In the node view, click the Provisioning > Timing > BITS Facilities tabs.

Step 6 In the BITS Facilities area, complete the following information:


Note The BITS Facilities section sets the parameters for your BITS1 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.


BITS In Facility Type—Provisions the BITS In facility type (E1).

BITS In State—If Timing Mode is set to External or Mixed, set the BITS In State for BITS-1 to unlocked (in service) if the BITS input port is connected to the external timing source. If Timing Mode is set to Line, set the BITS In State to OOS (out of service).

BITS Out Facility Type—Provisions the BITS Out facility type (E1).

BITS Out State—If equipment is connected to the node's BITS output pins and you want to time the equipment from a node reference, set the BITS Out State for BITS-1 to unlocked, if the BITS Out connection is used for the external equipment. If equipment is not attached to the BITS output connector, set the BITS Out State to OOS.

Step 7 If the state is set to OOS, continue with Step 8. If the state is set to unlocked, 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.

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 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 15310-MA SDH. 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 To set up a provisionable patchcord between an optical port and an ONS node transponder/muxponder, an add/drop multiplexer, or multiplexer/demultiplexer port, the optical port must have an RS-DCC/MS-DCC termination provisioned. If the port is the protection port in a 1+1 group, the working port must have an RS-DCC/MS-DCC termination provisioned. As needed, complete the "DLP-H52 Provision Section DCC Terminations" task.



Note An optical port requires two patchcords when the remote end is Y-cable protected or is an add/drop multiplexer or multiplexer/demultiplexer port.



Step 1 In node view, click the Provisioning > Comm Channels > PPCs tabs. If you are in network view, click the Provisioning > Provisionable Patchcords (PPC) tabs.

Step 2 Click Create. The Provisionable Patchcord dialog box appears.

Step 3 In the Origination Node area, complete the following:

a. If you are in node view, the Origination Node defaults to the current node. If you are in network view, click the desired origination node from the drop-down list.

b. Type a patchcord identifier (0 through 32767) in the TX/RX ID field.

c. Click the desired origination slot/port from the list of available slots/ports.

Step 4 In the Termination Node area, complete the following:

a. Click the desired termination node from the drop-down list. If the remote node has not previously been discovered by CTC but is accessible by CTC, type the name of the remote node.

b. Type a patchcord identifier (0 through 32767) in the TX/RX ID field. The origination and termination IDs must be different if the patchcord is set up between two cards on the same node.

c. Click the desired termination slot/port from the list of available slots/ports. The origination port and the termination port must be different.

Step 5 If you need to provision Tx and Rx separately for multiplexer/demultiplexer cards, check the Separate Tx/Rx check box. If not, continue with Step 6. The origination and termination TX ports are already provisioned. Complete the following to provision the RX ports:

a. In the Origination Node area, type a patchcord identifier (0 through 32767) in the RX ID field. The origination Tx and Rx and termination Tx and Rx IDs must be different.

b. Click the desired origination slot/port from the list of available slots/ports.

c. In the Termination Node area, type a patchcord identifier (0 through 32767) in the RX ID field. The origination Tx and Rx and termination Tx and Rx IDs must be different.

d. Click the desired termination slot/port from the list of available slots/ports.

Step 6 Click OK.

Step 1 On the node view shelf graphic, double-click the card that contains the ports that you want to put in or out of service. The card view appears.

Step 2 Click the Provisioning > E1, DS3, E3, or Optical tabs.

Step 3 In the Admin State column for the target port, choose one of the following from the drop-down list:

unlocked—Puts the port in the In-Service and Normal (unlocked-enabled) service state.

locked, outOfGroup—Puts the port in the Out-of-Service and Management, Disabled (locked-enabled,disabled) service state. In this service state, traffic is not passed on the port until the service state is changed to unlocked-enabled; Out-of-Service and Management, Maintenance (locked-enabled,maintenance); or Out-of-Service and Autonomous, Automatic In-Service (unlocked-disabled,automaticInService).

locked, maintenance—Puts the port in the locked-enabled,maintenance service state. This service state does not interrupt traffic flow and loopbacks are allowed, but alarm reporting is suppressed. Raised fault conditions, whether or not their alarms are reported, can be retrieved on the CTC Conditions tab or by using the TL1 RTRV-COND command. Use the locked-enabled,maintenance service state for testing or to suppress alarms temporarily. Change to the unlocked-enabled or unlocked-disabled,automaticInService service states when testing is complete.

Automatic In Service—Puts the port in the unlocked-disabled,automaticInService service state. In this service state, alarm reporting is suppressed, but traffic is carried and loopbacks are allowed. After the soak period passes, the port changes to unlocked-enabled. Raised fault conditions, whether their alarms are reported or not, can be retrieved on the CTC Conditions tab or by using the TL1 RTRV-COND command.


Note CTC will not allow you to change a port service state from unlocked-enabled to locked-enabled,disabled. You must first change a port to the locked-enabled,maintenance service state before putting it in the locked-enabled,disabled service state.


For more information about port service states, refer to the "Administrative and Service States" appendix of the Cisco ONS 15310-MA SDH Reference Manual.

Step 4 If the port is in loopback (locked-enabled,loopback & maintenance) and you set the Admin State to unlocked, a confirmation window displays indicating that the loopback will be released and that the action could be service affecting. To continue, click Yes.

Step 5 If you set the Admin State to Automatic In Service, set the soak period time in the automaticInService Soak field. This is the amount of time that the port will stay in the unlocked-disabled,automaticInService service state after a signal is continuously received. When the soak period elapses, the port changes to the unlocked-enabled service state.


Note A continuously valid signal must be received for the duration of the soak period before the unlocked-disabled,automaticInService port makes a transition to the unlocked-enabled state. For example, if the soak timer is set for eight hours, and you receive an error after two hours, the timer is reset for another eight-hour period. This cycle continues until an error-free signal is received for an eight-hour period.


Step 6 Click Apply.

Step 7 As needed, repeat this task for each port.

Step 8 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).


DLP-H52 Provision Section DCC Terminations

Purpose

This task creates the SDH Data Communications Channel (DCC) terminations required for alarms, administration, data, signal control information, and messages. In this task, you can also set up the node so that it has direct IP access to a far-end non-ONS node over the DCC network.

Note The RS-DCCs and MS-DCCs should not be provisioned between SONET (ANSI) and SDH (ETSI) nodes using CTC or TL1 because they cannot operate between SONET and SDH nodes. These communication channels should be provisioned on similar nodes, such as SONET-to-SONET or SDH-to-SDH. To establish communication channels between SONET and SDH nodes, create a DCC tunnel. See the "DLP-H67 Create a DCC Tunnel" task to create a DCC tunnel.



Note When RS-DCC is provisioned, an MS-DCC termination is allowed on the same port, but is not recommended. Using RS-DCC and MS-DCC on the same port is only needed during a software upgrade if the software version does not support MS-DCC. You can provision RS-DCCs and MS-DCCs on different ports in the same node.



Step 1 In node view click the Provisioning > Comm Channels > RS-DCC tabs.

Step 2 Click Create.

Step 3 In the Create RS-DCC Terminations dialog box click the ports where you want to create the DCC termination. To select more than one port, press the Shift key or the Ctrl key.


Note RS-DCC refers to the Section DCC, which is used for ONS 15310-MA SDH DCC terminations. The SDH Line DCCs and the Section DCC (when not used as a DCC termination by the ONS 15310-MA SDH) can be provisioned as DCC tunnels. See the "DLP-H67 Create a DCC Tunnel" task.


Step 4 In the Port Admin State area, click the Set to unlocked radio button.

Step 5 Verify that the Disable OSPF on Link check box is unchecked.

Step 6 If the RS-DCC termination is to include a non-ONS node, check the Far End is Foreign check box. This automatically sets the far-end node IP address to 0.0.0.0, which means that any address can be specified by the far end. To change the default to a specific the IP address, see the "DLP-H152 Change a Section DCC Termination" task.

Step 7 In the Layer 3 box, perform one of the following:

Check the IP box only—if the RS-DCC is between the ONS 15310-MA SDH and another ONS node and only ONS nodes reside on the network. The RS-DCC will use PPP (point-to-point protocol).

Check the IP and OSI boxes—if the RS-DCC is between the ONS 15310-MA SDH and another ONS node and third party NEs that use the OSI protocol stack are on the same network. The RS-DCC will use PPP.

Check OSI box only—if the RS-DCC is between an ONS node and a third party NE that uses the OSI protocol stack. The RS-DCC will use the LAP-D protocol.


Note If OSI is checked and IP is not checked (LAP-D), no network connections will appear in network view.


Step 8 If you checked OSI, complete the following steps. If you checked IP only, continue with Step 9.

a. Click Next.

b. Provision the following fields:

Router—Choose the OSI router

ESH—Sets the End System Hello (ESH) propagation frequency. End system NEs transmit ESHs to inform other ESs and ISs about the NSAPs it serves. The default is 10 seconds. The range is 10 to 1000 seconds.

ISH—Sets the Intermediate System Hello PDU propagation frequency. Intermediate system NEs send ISHs to other ESs and ISs to inform them about the unlocked NETs it serves. The default is 10 seconds. The range is 10 to 1000 seconds.

IIH—Sets the Intermediate System to Intermediate System Hello PDU propagation frequency. The IS-IS Hello PDUs establish and maintain adjacencies between ISs. The default is 3 seconds. The range is 1 to 600 seconds.

IS-IS Cost—Sets the cost for sending packets on the LAN subnet. The IS-IS protocol uses the cost to calculate the shortest routing path. The default metric cost for LAN subnets is 20. It normally should not be changed.

c. If the OSI and IP boxes are checked, continue with Step 9. If only the OSI is checked, click Next and provision the following fields:

Mode

AITS—(Default) Acknowledged Information Transfer Service. Does not exchange data until a logical connection between two LAP-D users is established. This service provides reliable data transfer, flow control, and error control mechanisms.

UITS—Unacknowledged Information Transfer Service. Transfers frames containing user data with no acknowledgement. The service does not guarantee that the data presented by one user will be delivered to another user, nor does it inform the user if the delivery attempt fails. It does not provide any flow control or error control mechanisms.

Role—Set to the opposite of the mode of the NE at the other end of the RS-DCC.

MTU—Maximum transmission unit. Sets the maximum number of octets in a LAP-D information frame. The range is 512 to 1500 octets. The default is 512. You normally should not change it.

T200—Sets the time between Set Asynchronous Balanced Mode (SABME) frame retransmissions. The default is 0.2 seconds. The range is 0.2 to 20 seconds.

T203—Provisions the maximum time between frame exchanges, that is, the trigger for transmission of the LAP-D "keep-alive" Receive Ready (RR) frames. The default is 10 seconds. The range is 4 to 120 seconds.

Step 9 Click Finish.


Note EOC (DCC Termination Failure) and LOS (Loss of Signal) alarms are present until you create all network DCC terminations and put the DCC termination optical ports in service.



Note There are four possibilities for the appearance of DCCs: green/solid, green/dashed, gray/solid, gray/dashed. DCC appearance corresponds to the following states: active/routable, active/nonroutable, failed/routable, or failed/nonroutable. Circuit provisioning uses active/routable links. Selecting a node or span in the graphic area displays information about the node and span in the status area.

Step 1 In the Select Optimization area of the VC low-order path Matrix Optimization page, choose one of the following:

Create VC low-order path tunnel on transit nodes—This option is available if the circuit passes through a node that does not have a VC low-order path tunnel or if an existing VC low-order path tunnel is full. VC low-order path tunnels allow VC low-order path circuits to pass through ONS nodes without consuming cross-connect card resources. VC low-order path tunnels can carry 28 VC-12 circuits. In general, creating VC low-order path tunnels is a good idea if you are creating many VC low-order path circuits from the same source and destination. Refer to the "Circuits and Tunnels" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15310-MA SDH Reference Manual for more information.

Create VC low-order path aggregation point—This option is available if the circuit source or destination is on an STM-M port on a 1+1 or unprotected node. VAPs aggregate circuits onto an VC high-order path for handoff to non-ONS networks or equipment, such as an IOF, switch, or digital access and cross-connect system (DACS). It allows VC-12 circuits to be routed through the node using one VC high-order path connection on the 15310-MA-CTX (cross-connect) card matrix rather than multiple VC low-order path connections on the 15310-MA-CTX card VC low-order path matrix. If you want to aggregate the circuit you are creating with others onto an VC high-order path for transport outside the ONS network, choose one of the following:

Note When a port is placed in the Out-of-Service and Management, Maintenance (locked-enabled,maintenance) service state, it raises an Alarms Suppressed for Maintenance (AS-MT) condition. For information about alarm and condition troubleshooting, refer to the Cisco ONS 15310-MA SDH Troubleshooting Guide.



Note When a port is placed in the Out-of-Service and Autonomous, Automatic In-Service (unlocked-disabled,automaticInService) service state but is not connected to a valid signal, it generates a loss of signal (LOS) alarm.


Step 3 If you want to apply exclusion rules, check the Exclude Same Root Cause check box at the node or network view, but do not check the Exclude Same Root Cause check box in card view.

An exclusion rule eliminates all lower-level alarms or conditions that originate from the same cause. For example, a fiber break may cause an LOS alarm, an AIS condition, and an SF condition. If you check the Exclude Same Root Cause check box, only the LOS alarm will appear. According to Telcordia, exclusion rules apply to a query of all conditions from a node.

Step 4 If you want to create a profile using an existing profile located on the node, click Load and From Node in the Load Profile(s) dialog box.

a. Click the node name you are logged into in the Node Names list.

b. Click the name of an existing profile in the Profile Names list, such as Default. Then go to Step 6.

Step 5 If you want to create a profile using an existing profile located in a file that is stored locally or on a network drive, click From File in the Load Profile(s) dialog box.

a. Click Browse.

b. Navigate to the file location in the Open dialog box.

c. Click Open.


Note All default or user-defined severity settings that are Critical (CR) or Major (MJ) are demoted to Minor (MN) in Non-Service-Affecting (NSA) situations as defined in Telcordia GR-474.


Step 6 Click OK.

The alarm severity profile appears in the Alarm Profiles window.

Step 7 Right-click anywhere in the profile column to display the profile editing shortcut menu. (Refer to Step 11 for further information about the Default profile.)

Step 8 Click Clone in the shortcut menu.


Tip To see the full list of profiles, including those available for loading or cloning, click Available. You must load a profile before you can clone it.


Step 9 In the New Profile or Clone Profile dialog box, enter a name in the New Profile Name field.

Profile names must be unique. If you try to import or name a profile that has the same name as another profile, CTC adds a suffix to create a new name. Long file names are supported.

Step 10 Click OK.

A new alarm profile (named in Step 9) is created. This profile duplicates the default profile severities and appears at the right of the previous profile column in the Alarm Profiles window. You can select it and drag it to a different position.


Note Up to 10 profiles, including the two reserved profiles, Inherited and Default, can be stored in CTC.


The Default profile sets severities to standard Telcordia GR-474-CORE settings. If an alarm has an Inherited profile, it inherits (copies) its severity from the same alarm's severity at the higher level. For example, if you choose the Inherited profile from the network view, the severities at the lower levels (node, card, and port) will be copied from this selection. A card with an Inherited alarm profile copies the severities used by the node that contains the card. (If you are creating profiles, you can apply these separately at any level. To do this, refer to the "DLP-H82 Apply Alarm Profiles to Cards and Nodes" task.)

Step 11 Modify (customize) the new alarm profile:

a. In the new alarm profile column, click the alarm severity you want to change in the custom profile.

b. Choose a severity from the drop-down list.

c. Repeat Steps a and b for each severity you want to customize. Refer to the following guidelines when you view the alarms or conditions after making modifications:

All Critical (CR) or Major (MJ) default or user-defined severity settings are demoted to Minor (MN) in Non-Service-Affecting (NSA) situations as defined in Telcordia GR-474.

Default severities are used for all alarms and conditions until you create and apply a new profile.

Changing a severity to inherited (I) or unset (U) does not change the severity of the alarm.

Step 12 After you have customized the new alarm profile, right-click the profile column to highlight it.

Step 13 Click Store.

Step 14 In the Store Profile(s) dialog box, click To Node(s) and go to Step a or click To File and go to Step b (Figure 16-23).

Caution If multiple CTC/TL1 sessions are open, suppressing alarms in one session suppresses the alarms in all other open sessions.


Note Alarm suppression at the node level does not supersede alarm suppression at the card or port level. Suppression can exist independently for all three entities, and each entity will raise separate alarms suppressed by the user command (AS-CMD) alarm.



Step 1 If you are in node view, click the Provisioning > Alarm Profiles > Alarm Behavior tabs.

Step 2 To suppress alarms for the entire node:

a. Check the Suppress Alarms check box.

b. Click Apply.

All raised alarms for the node will change color to white in the Alarms window and their status will change to cleared. After suppressing alarms, clicking Synchronize in the Alarms window will remove cleared alarms from the window. However, an AS-CMD alarm will show in node or card view to indicate that node-level alarms were suppressed; this alarm will show System in the Object column.


Note The only way to suppress BITS, power source, or system alarms is to suppress alarms for the entire node. These cannot be suppressed separately, but the shelf backplane can be.


Step 3 To suppress alarms for individual cards:

a. Locate the card row (using the Location column for the slot number or the Eqpt Type column for the equipment name).

b. Check the Suppress Alarms column check box on that row.

Alarms that directly apply to this card will change appearance as described in Step 2. For example, if you suppressed raised alarms for a CE 100T-8 card in Slot 2, raised alarms for this card will change in node or card view. The AS-CMD alarm will show the slot number in the Object number (i.e., the AS-CMD object will be "SLOT-2."

Step 4 Click Apply.

Step 5 To suppress alarms for individual card ports double-click the card in node view.

Step 6 Click the Provisioning > Alarm Profiles > Alarm Behavior tabs.

Step 7 Check the Suppress Alarms column check box for the port row where you want to suppress alarms.

Step 8 Click Apply.

Alarms that apply directly to this port will change appearance as described in Step 2. (However, alarms raised on the card will remain raised.) A raised AS-CMD alarm that shows the port as its object will appear in either alarm window. For example, if you suppressed alarms for Port 1 on the Slot 2 CE 100T-8 card, the alarm object will show "FAC-2-1."

Step 3 Click Clear.

Step 4 On the Clear Statistics dialog box, choose one of three options:

Displayed statistics: Clearing displayed statistics erases from the card and the window all PM counts associated with the current combination of statistics on the selected port. This means that the selected time interval, direction, and signal type counts are erased from the card and the window.


Note This option is available only for electrical and optical ports.


All statistics for port x: Clearing all of the statistics for port x erases from the card and the window all PM counts associated with all combinations of the statistics on the selected port. This means that all time intervals, directions, and signal type counts are erased from the card and the window.

All statistics for card: Clearing all of the statistics for the card erases from the card and the window display all PM counts for all ports.

Step 5 Click Ok. In the confirmation dialog box, click Yes to clear the selected statistics.

Step 6 View the displayed columns to verify that the selected PM counts have been cleared.

Step 7 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).
