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 may be 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 modify node provisioning for the Cisco ONS 15454. To provision a new node, see Chapter 4 "Turn Up a Node." To change default network element settings and to view a list of those settings, refer to the "Network Element Defaults" appendix in the Cisco ONS 15454 Reference Manual.
