Power Failure Low (dBm)

Shows the optical power failure low threshold for the port. If the VOA Mode is Constant Attenuation, you can manually change the threshold. The value must be within the optical power range that is specified for the card. (Refer to the “Hardware Specifications” appendix in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual .)

If VOA Mode is Constant Power, you cannot change the threshold manually because it is based on the Power setpoint (VOA Power Ref + VOA Power Calib). To change the threshold, you must change the VOA Power Calib value. This adjusts the Power setpoint. The threshold is automatically set to a value that is 5 dB lower than the Power setpoint.

You can set the threshold manually at the COM-RX and LINE-RX ports.

Numeric (dB). Double-click the table cell, enter a value, then press Enter .

Pwr OSC Degrade Low (dBm)

Shows the power degrade low threshold. This power value applies to the corresponding port and is automatically calculated when ANS is run.

This threshold applies to a port associated to a VOA (OSC-VOA) always active in Constant Power mode.

In this case, the threshold is automatically linked to the Power setpoint (VOA Power Ref + VOA Power Calib) that is provisioned. Changing the setpoint will result in changing the threshold (always 2 dB lower).

Numeric.

Pwr OSC Degrade High (dBm)

Shows the power degrade high threshold. This power value applies to the corresponding port and is automatically calculated when ANS is run.

This threshold applies to a port that is associated to a VOA (OSC-VOA). In Constant Power mode, the port is always active and the threshold is automatically linked to the Power setpoint (VOA Power Ref + VOA Power Calib). To change the threshold, change the Power setpoint. The threshold will always be 2 dB higher than the Power setpoint.

Numeric.

Pwr OSC Failure (dBm)

Shows the optical power failure low threshold for the port. The threshold is calculated automatically when you run ANS. If the VOA Mode is Constant Attenuation, you can manually change the threshold. The value must be within the optical power range that is specified for the card. (Refer to the “Hardware Specifications” appendix in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual .)

If VOA Mode is Constant Power, you cannot change the threshold manually because it is based on the Power setpoint (VOA Power Ref + VOA Power Calib). To change the threshold, you must change the VOA Power Calib value. This adjusts the Power setpoint. The threshold is automatically set to a value that is 5 dB lower than the Power setpoint.

Admin State

(Display only) Displays the port administrative state. For more information about administrative states, see the "Administrative and Service States" appendix in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.

  • IS (ANSI) or Unlocked (ETSI)—Puts the port in service. The port service state changes to IS-NR (ANSI) or Unlocked-enabled (ETSI).
  • IS,AINS (ANSI) or Unlocked,automaticInService (ETSI)—Puts the port in automatic in-service. The port service state changes to OOS-AU,AINS (ANSI) or Unlocked-disabled,automaticInService (ETSI).

Service State

(Display only) Identifies the autonomously generated state that displays the overall condition of the port. Service states appear in these formats: Primary State-Primary State Qualifier, Secondary State. For more information about service states, see "Administrative and Service States" appendix in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.

  • IS-NR (In-Service and Normal [ANSI]) or Unlocked-enabled (ETSI)—The port is fully operational and is performing as provisioned.
  • OOS-AU,AINS (Out-Of-Service and Autonomous, Automatic In-Service [ANSI]) or Unlocked-disabled,automaticInService (ETSI)—The port is out of service, but traffic is carried. Alarm reporting is suppressed. The ONS node monitors the ports for an error-free signal. After an error-free signal is detected, the port stays in the OOS-AU,AINS/Unlocked-disabled,automaticInService state for the duration of the soak period. After the soak period ends, the port service state changes to IS-NR/Unlocked-enabled.
