Upgrade, Add, and Remove Cards and Nodes


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 provides procedures for adding and removing dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) cards and nodes.

Step 1 Complete the G46 Log into CTC.


Note If you cannot log into Cisco Transport Controller (CTC) and you need to remove a card, remove the card as described in Step 6. After you log into CTC, troubleshoot the mismatched equipment alarm (MEA) with the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Troubleshooting Guide.


Step 2 Click the Alarms tab.

a. Verify that the alarm filter is not on. See the G128 Disable Alarm Filtering as necessary.

b. Verify that no unexplained alarms appear on the network. If alarms appear, investigate and resolve them before continuing. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Troubleshooting Guide for procedures.

Step 3 If you are removing and replacing a card, go to Step 5.

Step 4 If you are permanently removing a card, go to Step 11.

Step 5 To remove and replace a card, complete the following tasks, as needed:

    • The circuits traversing through the card that needs to be replaced (for example, an amplifier) need to be protection switched. For instance, if the card you want to replace is an active transponder (TXP) or muxponder (MXP) in a Y-cable protection group, complete the G179 Apply a Force Y-Cable or Splitter Protection Switch to force traffic away from the TXP or MXP that you will remove. If the card you want to replace is the standby TXP or MXP in a Y-cable protection group, complete the G182 Apply a Lockout to prevent traffic from switching to the TXP or MXP that you will remove. See the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide or the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide for other types of protection switching (path protection, BLSR, optical, and electrical).
    • If the card is used as a node timing reference, complete the G112 Change the Node Timing Reference to change the timing reference to a card that will not be removed.
    • If the card is an OSCM or OSC-CSM with an optical service channel (OSC) or TXP, MXP, GE_XP, 10GE_XP, GE_XPE, 10GE_XPE, ADM-10G, and OTU2_XP cards with generic communications channel (GCC) termination, complete the G85 Modify or Delete OSC Terminations, DCC/GCC Terminations, and Provisionable Patchcords to delete the termination and recreate it on a card that will not be removed.

Step 6 Physically remove the card:

a. Disconnect any cables.

b. Open the card latches/ejectors.

c. Use the latches/ejectors to pull the card forward and away from the shelf.

Step 7 Insert the new card using one of the following procedures as applicable:

Step 8 Complete the G34 Install Fiber-Optic Cables on DWDM Cards and DCUs.

Step 9 Complete the following tasks or procedures, as needed:

Step 1 Complete the G46 Log into CTC task at the node where you want to change the TDC-CC or TDC-FC card settings. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.

Step 2 Complete the G103 Back Up the Database.


Note Changing the CD value of the T-DCU can severely affect the performance of the channels travelling through the T-DCU. As a general rule the new value is provided through an additional analysis performed by the CTP. In this case, complete G177 Upgrade ANS Parameters on a DWDM Node procedure. If for some reason, the G177 Upgrade ANS Parameters on a DWDM Node procedure cannot be applied, then a skilled operator can directly change the CD value according to the CTP findings. To modify the CD setting of the TDC-CC or TDC-FC card proceed to Step 3.


Step 3 To modify the CD setting of the TDC-CC or TDC-FC card, perform any of the following tasks as needed:


Note As the operation is traffic affecting, change the CD value during a maintenance window.


Step 4 Complete the G103 Back Up the Database.

Step 1 Before you modify the CD value of the TDC-CC or TDC-FC card, run the APC. To run the APC, complete the “G430 Run Automatic Power Control” section.

Step 2 Modify the CD value for the TDC-CC or TDC-FC Card. To modify the CD value, Complete the “G545 Modify the Chromatic Dispersion Value for the TDC-CC and TDC-FC Cards” section.


Note Do not change the compensation value directly in one instance. In order to avoid traffic drops and alarms, it is required to change the CD value in steps not too large. For example, if you want to change the CD value of a TDC-CC from -880 to -1320 ps/nm, do not change the CD value in a single step, but in a couple of steps. Change the CD value to an intermediate value of -1100 ps/nm and then to -1320 ps/nm. Change the CD value of the TDC-CC by steps no larger than 330 ps/nm and the CD value of the TDC-FC by steps no larger than 270 ps/nm. This approach of changing the CD value avoids misleading alarms and traffic drops.


Step 3 Run the APC. To run the APC, complete the “G430 Run Automatic Power Control” section.

Step 4 If the APC correction skipped alarm appears, then force the APC correction. Do the following:

a. Click the alarmed port.

b. Click the Maintenance tab.

c. Click the Force APC correction button.

Step 5 Repeat steps 2 to 4 until the CD target value is set.

Step 6 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).


 

NTP-G278 Upgrade the TSC Card to the TNC Card

Purpose

This procedure upgrades the TSC card to the TNC card on the Cisco ONS 15454 M6 shelf.

Tools/Equipment

Two TNC cards

Prerequisite Procedures

None

Required/As Needed

As needed

Onsite/Remote

Onsite

Security Level

Maintenance or higher


Note Downgrade procedures from TNC cards to TSC cards are not supported. Contact Cisco TAC for more information. See the “$paratext>” section for contact information.



Step 1 Complete the G46 Log into CTC.

Step 2 Verify that the LAN wires on the RJ-45 LAN port are installed properly. The TNC card does not autodetect miswired LAN connections. If a LAN connection is miswired, a LAN Connection Polarity Reversed condition appears. For information on installing LAN wires, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide .

Step 3 Verify that the node you are upgrading has ONS 15454 M6 Software R9.2 installed. The software version is displayed in the upper left corner of the window.

Step 4 Complete the NTP-U214 Back Up the Software Database procedure before beginning the upgrade.

Step 5 Physically replace the standby TSC card with a TNC card.

a. Check the LED on the faceplate. The ACT/STBY LED on the faceplate of the TNC/TSC card indicates whether the card is in active or standby mode. A green ACT/STBY LED indicates an active card and an amber light indicates a standby card.

b. Open the ejectors on the standby TSC card.

c. Slide the card out of the slot. This raises the IMPROPRMVL alarm, which clears when the upgrade is complete.

d. Right-click the slot from which the TSC card was ejected out.

e. Click Delete Card to delete TSC from CTC.


Note If the TSC card is not deleted from the CTC shelf view before inserting the TNC card, the MEA (card mismatch) alarm appears on that slot.


f. Open the ejectors on the TNC card to be installed.

g. Slide the TNC card into the slot along the guide rails.

h. Close the ejectors.

i. In CTC node view, Ldg (loading) appears on the newly installed TNC card.


Note It takes approximately 10 minutes for the active TSC card to copy the system software and database to the newly installed TNC card. During this operation, the LEDs on the TNC card flash Fail and then the active/standby LED flashes. When the transfer completes, the TNC card reboots and goes into standby mode after approximately three minutes. Do not remove the card from the shelf during a database transfer.



Caution If your active TSC card resets during the upgrade before the new TNC card is in full standby mode, remove the new TNC card immediately.

Step 6 When the newly installed TNC card is in standby, right-click the active TSC card in CTC.

Step 7 From the pull-down menu, click Reset Card .

Wait for the TSC card to reboot. The standby TNC card is switched to active mode. The TSC card verifies that it has the same database as the TNC card and then switches to standby.

Step 8 Verify that the remaining TSC card is now in standby mode (the ACT/STBY LED changes to amber).

Step 9 Physically replace the remaining TSC card with the second TNC card.

a. Open the ejectors on the TSC card.

b. Slide the card out of the slot. This raises the IMPROPRMVL alarm, which clears when the upgrade is complete.

c. Right-click the slot from which the TSC card was ejected out.

d. Click Delete Card to delete TSC from CTC.


Note If the TSC card is not deleted from the CTC shelf view before inserting the TNC card, the MEA (card mismatch) alarm appears on that slot.


e. Open the ejectors on the TNC card.

f. Slide the TNC card into the slot along the guide rails.

g. Close the ejectors.

The second TNC card boots up. The second TNC card must also copy the database. Do not remove the card from the shelf during a database transfer.

Step 10 If power-related alarms occur after the second TNC card is installed, check the voltage on the RJ-45 LAN port. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide for information on clearing the alarms.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.
