Turn Up a Network


This chapter explains how to turn up and test a Cisco ONS 15454 dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) network. For DWDM topology reference information and span loss tables, see the "Network Reference" chapter in Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.

There are two main DWDM network types: metro core, where the channel power is equalized and dispersion compensation is applied, and metro access, where the channels are not equalized and dispersion compensation is not applied. The DWDM network topologies supported are hubbed rings, multihubbed rings, meshed rings, linear configurations, and single-span links. The DWDM node types supported are hub, terminal, optical add/drop multiplexing (OADM), reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexing (ROADM), anti-amplified spontaneous emissions (anti-ASE), and line amplifier. For DWDM and hybrid node turn-up procedures, see Chapter 3 "Turn Up a Node."


Note Unless otherwise specified, "ONS 15454" refers to both ANSI and ETSI shelf assemblies.

Note In this procedure, Side A refers to Slots 1 through 6, and Side B refers to Slots 12 through 17.



Step 1 Check to see if the fibers coming from the adjacent nodes are connected to the OPT-BST, OPT-BST-E, OPT-AMP-17-C (operating in the booster amplifier mode), or OSC-CSM card LINE RX and TX ports. If yes, continue with Step 2. If adjacent node fibers are not connected to the LINE RX and TX ports, do not continue. Install the cabling to the adjacent nodes using the "NTP-G34 Install Fiber-Optic Cables on DWDM Cards and DCUs" procedure.

Step 2 Verify the following network fiber connections:

The node's Side A ports (LINE TX and RX) are connected to the Side B ports (LINE RX and TX) of the adjacent node.

The node's Side B ports (LINE RX and TX) are connected to the Side A ports (LINE TX and RX) of the adjacent node.

Step 3 Complete the "DLP-G46 Log into CTC" task at the network node that you want to verify.

Step 4 Click the Provisioning > Comm Channels > OSC tabs. Verify that OSC terminations appear under the OSC Terminations area for the Side B and Side A OSC-CSM or OSCM cards and that the port state is In-Service and Normal (IS-NR [ANSI]/Unlocked-enabled [ETSI]). If so, continue with Step 5. If OSC terminations are not created, complete the "NTP-G38 Provision OSC Terminations" procedure.

Step 5 Complete the "NTP-G76 Verify Optical Span Loss Using CTC" procedure for all OSC-CSM cards. If the measured span loss is within the minimum and maximum expected span loss values, continue with Step 6. If not, clean the fiber connected to the OPT-BST, OPT-BST-E, OPT-AMP-17-C (operating in the booster amplifier mode), or OSC-CSM cards on both ends of the span, then repeat the "NTP-G76 Verify Optical Span Loss Using CTC" procedure. If the span loss is within the minimum and maximum expected span loss values, continue with Step 6. If not, contact your next level of support.

Step 6 Repeat Steps 2 through 5 at each network node.

Note The installation wizard performs optical measurements and data exchange between the nodes. Make sure that the data communications network (DCN) is stable.



Note Running the installation wizard without setting the automatic node setup (ANS) parameters causes the wizard to fail. Complete the "NTP-G37 Run Automatic Node Setup" procedure.



Note Running the installation wizard can impact traffic. Make sure that nobody is working on the nodes before continuing with this procedure.



Caution To perform optical measurements, the installation wizard automatically turns on hardware resources installed on the nodes. Alarms can occur during the installation process. Following the recommendations is critical to the success of installation.


Note Make sure that a Muxponder, a WSS, or a tunable transponder is present before you run the Raman installation wizard.



Note When the span is longer than 42 dB, do not use the Raman installation wizard.



Step 1 From the CTC View menu, choose Go to Network View.

Step 2 Figure 6-1 shows a sample network view of nodes (terminal or ROADM) connected in the network.

Figure 6-1 Network View of Nodes (Terminal or ROADM)

The Raman pump on the OPT-RAMP-C or OPT-RAMP-CE card can be configured on a single span or multiple spans.

Step 3 To start the Raman installation wizard, complete one of the following steps:

To configure Raman amplification on a single span, go to Network view, right-click on a single node or span and choose Raman Installation Day0 from the shortcut menu. (Figure 6-2). Go to Step 5.

To configure Raman amplification on multispans, go to Network view, right-click on a specific span, and choose Raman Installation Day0 Multi-span from the shortcut menu (Figure 6-3).

Figure 6-2 Installing the Raman Pump on a Single Span

Figure 6-3 Installing the Raman Pump on Multiple Spans

The Routing page is displayed (Figure 6-4).

Figure 6-4 Selecting Spans for Raman Amplification

The Included Span list box lists all spans in the network.

Step 4 Select a span from the network to add a span.

If you are setting up multispans, make sure that the span selection is made in a sequence; otherwise, an error message is displayed. For example, in Figure 6-4, begin with the span between the nodes WXC_BSTE_Chica-155 and OLA2_CrownP-154, and then the span between OLA2_CrownP-154 and OLAasym_Batavia-157, and so on.

Step 5 When you have selected the span or spans, click Next.

The Setting Parameters page is displayed (see Figure 6-5).

Figure 6-5 Setting Raman Calibration Parameter


Note The Hints area displays the status of internal operations.



Note If multiple spans are selected, the applicable nodes are displayed on the left side of the page.


Step 6 Select one or more checkboxes as applicable:

Autorun wizard—The Installation wizard tunes the selected span automatically, requiring no user intervention. However, if the wizard displays errors, the wizard requests for user acknowledgements.

Even Band—This option is used for optical networks that support only even band channels. If the network supports odd and even channels, the Raman Installation wizard tunes the transponder to the first tunable odd band channel.

Auto Skip Tune Path—The Raman Installation wizard skips spans that have been previously tuned by the wizard.

Bidirectional Path—This configures the OPT-RAMP-C or OPT-RAMP-CE cards in both directions (source to destination and destination to source)

MUX/DMUX Present—This option is used if the optical network has transponders connected to the A/D stage (MUX or WSS).

Several scenarios are discussed in the following section. Select as applicable:

Check box Bidirectional Path is unchecked and check box MUX/DMUX Present is checked. See Figure 6-6 and Step 7a.

Check box Bidirectional Path is unchecked and check box MUX/DMUX Present is unchecked. See Figure 6-7 and Step 7b.

Check box Bidirectional Path is checked and check box MUX/DMUX Present is checked. See Figure 6-8 and Step 7c.

Check box Bidirectional Path is checked and check box MUX/DMUX Present is unchecked. See Figure 6-9 and Step 7d.


Note Before you check the MUX/DMUX Present check box, ensure that the following prerequisites are completed:

At least one source node is a terminal node or a ROADM node.

Two transponders/muxponders supporting wavelength of 1530.33 nm and 1560.61 nm, used as probe signals, are available on the source node for odd channels or wavelengths of 1530.72 nm and 1561.01 nm for even channels.

Trunk ports are connected to the correct ADD ports.



Note The Raman Wizard does not verify if the selected TXP connections are properly connected. The calibration process is terminated if a LOS-P alarm is detected on the MUX input port when the trunk port is turned on.



Note If you do not use the MUX/DMUX Present check box, ensure that the following prerequisites are completed:

Connect a UT2-based trunk port (from a transponder/muxponder card) to the COM-RX port of the booster amplifier connected to the OPT-RAMP-C or OPT-RAMP-CE card on the source node.

A full-spectrum, tunable interface allows the system to tune the signal on two required wavelengths without any human intervention.

A 10-dB bulk attenuator must be connected between the TXP trunk port and the COM-RX port of the booster amplifier.



Caution Make sure that the bulk attenuator is removed as soon as installation finishes and the correct fiber is reconnected to the COM-RX port of the booster amplifier.

Step 7 Perform any one of the following steps, based on your selection in Step 6.

a. Select the two transponders on the source node from the Slot drop-down list. The installation wizard tunes the transponders to the required wavelengths. (Figure 6-6).

Figure 6-6 Bidirectional Path Is Unchecked and MUX/DMUX Present Is Checked

b. Select one transponder on the source node from the Slot drop-down list. The installation wizard verifies if the transponder can tune on the first tunable wavelength. Make sure that the card used is a tunable C-band transponder and set the transponder to the "first tunable wavelength". Otherwise, the wizard fails and the installation must be repeated using a correctly configured tunable transponder (Figure 6-7).


Note The wizard uses a pre-installed UT-2 based transponder.


Figure 6-7 Bidirectional Path Is Unchecked and MUX/DMUX Present Is Unchecked

c. Select the two transponders on the source and destination nodes from the Slot drop-down list. The installation wizard verifies if the transponders are tuned to the expected wavelengths or on the first tunable wavelength. Otherwise, the wizard fails and the installation must be repeated (Figure 6-8).

Figure 6-8 Bidirectional Path Is Checked and MUX/DMUX Present Is Checked

d. Select a transponder on the source and destination nodes from the Slot drop-down list. The installation wizard verifies if the transponder can be tuned on the first tunable wavelength. Make sure that the transponder is a tunable C-band transponder. Otherwise, the wizard fails and the installation must be repeated (Figure 6-9).

Figure 6-9 Bidirectional Path Is Checked and MUX/DMUX Present Is Unchecked

Step 8 Click Next. The Calibrate Raman Page is displayed (Figure 6-10).

Figure 6-10 Calibrating Raman Amplification

The installation wizard changes the trunk port to the In-Service (IS) state and turns on all the amplifiers. All the OTS and optical channel (OCH) ports in the span are changed to IS state.

Step 9 As soon as the Raman calibrations are complete, the Next button is enabled. Click Next.

Figure 6-11 Calibrating Raman Amplification

Step 10 The power received on the destination node when wavelength on the source is turned on is shown. If you installed Raman amplification on multiple spans, click Next to view results of other spans.

Step 11 If the installation wizard fails, click the Repeat button. The Raman installation wizard recalibrates the values on the destination node.


Note If you have repeated the calibration several times and the wizard fails, press Cancel to abort the installation process. Log in to the Cisco Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/cisco/web/support/index.html for more information or call Cisco Technical Support at (800) 553-2447.


Step 12 Click Next. The Accept Results page is displayed (Figure 6-12).

Figure 6-12 Raman Amplification Results

The calculated Raman power and Raman gain are displayed. (Figure 6-12.)

Step 13 The wizard compares the calculated Raman gain value with the expected results. Your action depends on the Raman gain values.

Expected gain (Gt) - 0.5 dB <= (gain) <= (expected gain) + 0.5 dB—If the Raman gain is within this range, it means that the setup procedure was successful (Figure 6-13). Click Next and Finish.

3.0 dB <= (gain) <= (expected gain) - 0.5 dB—If the Raman gain is within this range, it means that the values are slightly outside the range. The wizard recommends that you verify the span length and cabling, and repeat the installation wizard procedure. If the Raman gain values are still not within the expected value range even after repeating the installation process, you can choose to forcibly apply these values by clicking Force Calibration. However, we recommend that you log in to the Cisco Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/cisco/web/support/index.html for more information or call Cisco Technical Support at (800) 553-2447.

(gain) < (expected gain) - 3.0 dB or if (gain) < (expected gain) + 0.5 dBIf the Raman gain is within this range and the values calculated are far from the targeted results, the installation fails and the wizard recommends repeating the installation. If the results do not improve, it means that the installation process has failed. The Force Calibration option is not available. Click Cancel to abort the installation and log in to the Cisco Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/cisco/web/support/index.html for more information or call Cisco Technical Support at (800) 553-2447.


Note The reason that the calculated values are not within the range may be due to installation issues (for example, the actual fiber type is different than the one used by Cisco Transport Planner to design the link) or procedural issues.


Step 14 Click Exports Data to export the Raman setup tuning data in text format.

Step 15 Click Finish.


Note When an error occurs during calibration of multiple spans, the calibration process stops and the Force Calibration button becomes visible (Figure 6-13).



Note If an error occurs during calibration of multiple spans when using the AutoRun wizard, the calibration stops and the Force Calibration button becomes visible. (Figure 6-13). Click Force Calibration to force the results.

Step 1 In node view (single-node mode) or shelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > Timing > General tabs.

Step 2 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 (ANSI) or a MIC-C/T/P front-mount electrical connection (FMEC) (ETSI); choose Line if timing is derived from an OSC-CSM or OSCM card that is optically connected to the timing node. A third option, Mixed, allows you to set both external and line timing references. Because Mixed timing might cause timing loops, we do not recommend its use. Use this mode with care.

SSM Message Set—Choose the Generation 2 synchronization status messaging (SSM) option. See the "Timing Reference" chapter in Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual for more information about SSM, including definitions of the SONET timing levels.


Note Generation 1 is used only by SONET or SDH ONS 15454 nodes that are connected to equipment that does not support Generation 2.


Quality of RES—Sets the timing quality for the user-defined, reserved (RES) S1 byte if your timing sources supports RES. Most timing sources do not use RES. If it does not support RES, choose RES=DUS (do not use for timing reference). Qualities are displayed in descending quality order as ranges. For example, in Generation 1 SSM, ST3<RES<ST2 means that the timing reference RES is higher than a Stratum 3 (ST3) and lower than a Stratum 2 (ST2).

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.

Reversion Time—If Revertive is checked, choose the amount of time that the ONS 15454 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 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 (ANSI) or the MIC-C/T/P FMEC (ETSI). 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. Reference 3 is the Stratum 3 clock provided on the TCC2/TCC2P card. The options that appear depend on the Timing Mode setting.

If the Timing Mode is set to External, your options are BITS-1, BITS-2, and Internal Clock.

If the Timing Mode is set to Line, your options are the node's working OSCM cards, OSC-CSM cards, transponder (TXP) cards, muxponder (MXP) cards, and Internal Clock. Choose the cards or ports that are directly or indirectly connected to the node wired to the BITS source. Set Reference 1 to the 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 references and the OSCM, OSC-CSM, TXP, or MXP cards are available, allowing you to set a mixture of external BITS clocks and OSCM, OSC-CSM, TXP, or MXP cards as timing references.

BITS-1 Out/BITS-2 Out—Sets the timing references for equipment wired to the BITS Out backplane (ANSI) or MIC-C/T/P FMEC (ETSI) pins. BITS-1 Out and BITS-2 Out are enabled when BITS-1 Out and BITS-2 Out facilities are put in service. If Timing Mode is set to external, choose the OSCM, OSC-CSM, TXP, or MXP card used to set the timing. If Timing Mode is set to Line, you can choose an OSCM, OSC-CSM, TXP, or MXP card or choose NE Reference to have the BITS-1 Out, BITS-2 Out, or both, follow the same timing references as the network element (NE).


Note All TXP or MXP card client ports are available for timing regardless of the card's termination mode. TXP or MXP trunk ports can be a timing reference when ITU-T G.709 is set to OFF and the Termination Mode is set to LINE. You cannot choose TXP_MR_2.5G and OTU2_XP card client ports as a timing reference.



Note The system prevents BITS In and BITS Out timing to be set on the same node.


Step 4 Click Apply.

Step 5 Click the BITS Facilities tab.


Note The BITS Facilities section sets the parameters for your BITS-1 and BITS-2 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 6 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, BITS-2, or both, to IS (in service) depending on whether one or both BITS input pin pairs 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 7 If the BITS In state is set to OOS, continue with Step 8. 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. Choices are PRS (Primary reference source; Stratum 1), ST2 (Stratum 2), TNC (Transit Node Clock), ST3E (Stratum 3E), ST3 (Stratum 3), SMC (SONET minimum clock), and ST4 (Stratum 4).

Step 8 In the BITS Out area, complete the following information, as needed:

Facility Type—(TCC2P only) Choose the BITS Out signal type, either DS1 or 64Khz+8Khz.

BITS Out state—If equipment is connected to the node's BITS output pins on the backplane (ANSI) or MIC-C/T/P FMEC (ETSI) and you want to time the equipment from a node reference, set the BITS Out state for BITS-1, BITS-2, or both, 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 9 If the BITS Out state is set to OOS, continue with Step 10. If the 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 (ANSI) or MIC-C/T/P FMEC (ETSI). 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 an external device is connected to the BITS Out pins, set the line build-out (LBO) distance between the ONS 15454 and an external device. If an external device is connected to BITS Out, choose the distance between the device and the ONS 15454. Options are: 0-133 ft (default), 134-266 ft, 267-399 ft, 400-533 ft, and 534-655 ft. Line build out (LBO) relates to the BITS cable length. If an external device is not connected to BITS Out, leave this field set to the default.

Step 10 Click Apply.

Step 1 Complete the "DLP-G46 Log into CTC" task to log in to an ONS 15454 node on the network.

Step 2 Click the Alarms tab:

a. Verify that the alarm filter is not turned on. See the "DLP-G128 Disable Alarm Filtering" task, as necessary.

b. Verify that no equipment (EQPT) alarms appear. If equipment failure alarms appear, investigate and resolve them before continuing. Refer to Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Troubleshooting Guide for procedures.

Step 3 Using the Cisco Transport Planner Traffic Matrix (see Table 3-1) for your site, identify the first channel (ITU wavelength) to be provisioned. Use the TXP, MXP, or line card that corresponds to the selected wavelength.

Step 4 For the ITU wavelength identified in Step 3, create an optical channel client connection (OCHCC) circuit or optical channel network connection (OCHNC) circuit using one of the following tasks:

G346 Provision Optical Channel Client Connections.

G105 Provision Optical Channel Network Connections.

.After creating the OCHCC or OCHNC circuit, return to this procedure and continue with Step 5.


Note Every time a channel is created in the DWDM network, the amplifiers automatically calculate the optical output power needed to maintain a constant power level on each channel. Automatic power control (APC) also starts every 60 minutes. If the span length changes, APC modifies amplifier gains and modifies express variable optical attenuation (VOA). For more information about APC, see the "Network Reference" chapter in Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.


Step 5 In node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Circuits tab. Verify that the OCHCC or OCHNC created in Step 4 has a DISCOVERED status and an IS state.

Step 1 Complete the "DLP-G46 Log into CTC" task at an ONS 15454 on the network.

Step 2 Using an optical spectrum analyzer, check the received OSNR for each transmitted channel on both ends of the span. Identify the last OSC-CSM, OPT-PRE, or OPT-BST MON port that the channel passes through before it is dropped.


Note The OPT-PRE reference also applies to the OPT-AMP-17-C card operating in OPT-PRE mode and the OPT-BST reference also applies to the OPT-AMP-17-C card operating in OPT-LINE mode.


Step 3 If OPT-PRE cards are installed with an OPT-BST, OPT-BST-E, or OSC-CSM card, use the OPT-PRE MON port.


Note For OSNR values for each card class, see Chapter 4, "Optical Amplifier Cards."


Step 4 If the OSNR is too low, check the following, depending on your node configuration:


Note The purpose of this step is not to improve the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), but to match the per-channel power level within the RX port power range.


Check the fiber connections between the OPT-BST, OPT-BST-E, or OSC-CSM card and the OPT-PRE amplifier. If needed, clean the connectors. See the "NTP-G115 Clean Fiber Connectors" procedure.

On the near-end OPT-BST amplifier, check the equalization of the added channels at the monitor output.

On the OPT-PRE amplifier, check the output power on both COM TX and DC TX ports.

Note This procedure is normally required only when the Cisco ONS 15454 must run traffic to and from a Calient PXC or a Cisco CRS-1 router.



Note Cisco ONS Software Release 9.1 supports only Cisco CRS-1 router using Cisco IOS XR Software Release 3.9.0. If you have an earlier version of the Cisco IOS XR software, you cannot configure LMP on the Cisco CRS-1 router, and the router will be visible as an unknown node in the CTC network view.



Step 1 Complete the "DLP-G46 Log into CTC" task to log in to the ONS 15454 on the network.

Step 2 To enable LMP, complete the "DLP-G372 Enable LMP" task.

Step 3 To set up one or more control channels, complete the "DLP-G373 Create, Edit, and Delete LMP Control Channels" task.

Step 4 To set up one or more traffic engineering (TE) links, complete the "DLP-G374 Create, Edit, and Delete LMP TE Links" task.

Step 5 To set up one or more data links, complete the "DLP-G378 Create, Edit, and Delete LMP Data Links" task.

Step 1 In node view, click the Provisioning > Comm Channels > LMP > General tabs.

Step 2 In the Configuration area, click the Enable LMP check box to enable the LMP function.

Step 3 In the Local Node Id text entry box, enter the local node ID in the form of an IP address.


Note Do not set the LMP Local Node ID to another IP address in use on the network. This introduces a duplicate IP address in the network for traffic going to the IP address that is used as the LMP Local Node ID. We recommended to you set the LMP Local Node ID to the node's IP address, because this does not introduce a duplicate IP address in the network.


Step 4 If you are going to use LMP to manage a control channel between a Calient PXC node and a
Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM node or between a Cisco CRS-1 router and Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM node, ensure that the LMP-WDM check box is unchecked.

Step 5 If you are going to use LMP to manage a control channel between the ONS 15454 nodes, check the LMP-WDM check box and use the Role field to choose one of the following roles:

PEER, to use LMP to manage links between two nodes where the other node is configured as OLS.

OLS, to use LMP to manage links between two nodes where the other node is configured as PEER.

The role selection is available only when LMP-WDM is enabled on the local node. Both the local and remote nodes must be configured with LMP-WDM enabled.

Step 6 Click Apply.

Step 7 In the Status area, verify that the Operational State is Up. This indicates that LMP is enabled and the link is active.

Step 1 In node view, click the Provisioning > Comm Channels > LMP > Control Channels tabs.

Step 2 To create a control channel, click Create. The Create LMP Control Channel dialog box appears.


Note The values of the Admin State, Requested Hello Interval, Min Hello Interval, Max Hello Interval, Requested Hello Dead Interval, Min Hello Dead Interval, and Max Hello Dead Interval fields correspond to the values specified for these fields in the NODE > lmp section of the node view Provisioning > Defaults tabs. If you change the NODE > lmp values, those values are reflected as defaults in the Create LMP Control Channel dialog box. You can change the default values using the dialog box. However, the NODE > lmp values are always used as the initial defaults.


Step 3 In the Create LMP Control Channel dialog box, complete the following:

Admin State—Select unlocked (if you are using an ETSI shelf) or IS (if you are using an ANSI shelf) to establish the control channel; otherwise, select locked, disabled (ETSI) or OOS-DSBLD (ANSI) to set the control channel to out of service.

Local Port—Select Routed if the control channel is to be sent over the control plane or management network; otherwise, if the control channel is to be sent over the same fiber as the traffic (either in the payload or in the overhead), select one of the available traffic ports.

Local Port Id—(Display only) Displays the local port identifier assigned by the node.

Remote Node Type—Select 15454 or non-CRS1 if you are creating a control channel between two Cisco ONS 15454 nodes or between a Calient PXC and a Cisco ONS 15454 node; otherwise, select CRS-1 if you are creating a control channel between a Cisco CRS-1 router and a Cisco ONS 15454 node.

Remote Node Address—In dotted-decimal format, enter the number that identifies the IP address of the remote node (either a Calient PXC peer node, a Cisco CRS-1 router, or a Cisco ONS 15454 node) where the control channel will be established.

Remote Node ID—Initially, CTC autopopulates this value to the remote node IP address that you just assigned. However, you can change the identifier to any nonzero 32-bit integer in dotted decimal format (for example, 10.92.29.10).

Requested Hello Interval—Enter the Requested Hello Interval in milliseconds (ms). Before sending Hello messages, the Hello Interval and Hello Dead Interval parameters must be established by the local and remote nodes. These parameters are exchanged in the Config message. The Hello Interval indicates how frequently LMP Hello messages will be sent; the interval must be in the 300 ms to 5000 ms range. The Min Hello Interval must be less than or equal to the Requested Hello Interval, and the Requested Hello Interval must be less than or equal to the Max Hello Interval.

Min Hello Interval—Enter the minimum Hello Interval in milliseconds. When the two nodes negotiate for the Hello Interval, the value that you enter here will be the minimum Hello Interval acceptable for the local node. The Min Hello Interval must be in the 300 ms to 5000 ms range. The Min Hello Interval must be less than or equal to the Requested Hello Interval and the Requested Hello Interval must be less than or equal to the Max Hello Interval.

Max Hello Interval—Enter the maximum Hello Interval in milliseconds. When the two nodes negotiate for the Hello Interval, the value that you enter here will be the maximum Hello Interval acceptable for the local node. The Max Hello Interval must be in the 300 ms to 5000 ms range. The Min Hello Interval must be less than or equal to the Requested Hello Interval and the Requested Hello Interval must be less than or equal to the Max Hello Interval.

Requested Hello Dead Interval—Enter the Requested Hello Dead Interval in milliseconds. The Requested Hello Dead Interval indicates how long a device should wait to receive a Hello message before declaring a control channel dead. The Requested Hello Dead interval must be in the 2000 ms to 20000 ms range. The Min Hello Dead Interval must be less than or equal to the Requested Hello Dead Interval and the Requested Hello Dead Interval must be less than or equal to the Max Hello Dead Interval.


Note The Requested Hello Dead Interval must be at least three times greater than the Requested Hello Interval.


Min Hello Dead Interval—Enter the minimum Hello Dead Interval in milliseconds. The minimum Hello Dead Interval must be in the 2000 ms to 20000 ms range. The minimum Hello Dead Interval must be less than or equal to the Requested Hello Dead Interval and the Requested Hello Dead Interval must be less than or equal to the Max Hello Dead Interval. When the two nodes negotiate for the Hello Dead Interval, the value that you enter here will be the minimum Hello Dead Interval acceptable for the local node.


Note The value of the Min Hello Dead Interval must be greater than the Min Hello Interval.


Max Hello Dead Interval—Enter the maximum Hello Dead Interval in milliseconds. This interval must be in the 2000 ms to 20000 ms range. The Min Hello Dead Interval must be less than or equal to the Requested Hello Dead Interval and the Requested Hello Dead Interval must be less than or equal to the Max Hello Dead Interval. When the two nodes negotiate for the Hello Dead Interval, the value that you enter here will be the maximum Hello Dead Interval acceptable for the local node.


Note The Max Hello Dead Interval must be greater than the Max Hello Interval.


Step 4 Click OK to accept the parameters that you have entered, or click Cancel to return to the Control Channels tab without creating a control channel.

Step 5 If you have chosen the Remote Node Type as CRS-1 in Step 3 and if you have chosen that automatic LMP configuration in the "DLP-G508 Configure the Cisco CRS-1 Router Parameters" task, a confirmation dialog box is displayed to indicate that this operation will also change the configuration of the Cisco CRS-1 router. Click Yes.

Step 6 If you created a control channel, verify that the parameters for the new Control Channel appear properly in the Control Channels tab.


Note The Actual Hello Interval and Actual Hello Dead Interval parameters reflect the values of these parameters as a result of the negotiated agreement of the local and remote nodes. They may be different than the requested values.


Step 7 After the LMP control channel has been created, observe the status of the channel in the Operational State column of the Control Channels tab, and take the appropriate action as shown in the following list:

Up—The control channel contacted the far-end node and successfully negotiated a control channel.

Down—LMP is enabled and the link is inactive. Ensure that the Admin State of the control channel is unlocked (ETSI) or IS (ANSI) and not disabled (ETSI) or OOS-DSBLD (ANSI). If the state still does not transition to Up, the far-end control channel might have disjointed Hello negotiation times that prevent a control channel from transitioning to the Up state. For example, the local ONS 15454 Min Hello Interval and Max Hello Interval might be 900 to 1000, while the remote Min Hello Interval and Max Hello Interval is 1100 to 1200.

Config Send—The connection could not be made to the remote node. Check to make sure that the remote node address and remote node ID addresses are correct.

Config Received—The local node sent a configuration request to the remote node and received a response of either ConfigNack or ConfigAck.

Unknown

Step 8 To delete a control channel, click the channel row to highlight it and click Delete. A confirmation dialog box appears that allows you to click OK or Cancel.

Step 9 To edit a control channel, click the channel row to highlight it and click Edit. A dialog box appears that allows you to change the control channel parameters. You can then click OK or Cancel.
