1.The TCC3 card is backward compatible with software Release 9.1 and earlier releases. In the Release 9.1 and earlier releases, the TCC3 card boots up as the TCC2P card in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM systems.

2.From releases 9.3 and later, the TNC and TNCE cards can be interchanged on an ONS 15454 M6 shelf without any alarms. However, if you combine both the cards in a single chassis and configure the OC3 OSC, it raises an EOC alarm.

3.1.3 Front Mount Electrical Connections (ETSI only)

The following Front Mount Electrical Connections (FMECs) are needed to support the functions of the DWDM, transponder, and muxponder cards:

  • MIC-A/P
  • MIC-C/T/P

3.2 Safety Labels

For information about safety labels, see the “Safety Labels” section.

3.3 TCC2 Card

(Cisco ONS 15454 only)


Note For TCC2 card specifications, see the “TCC2 Card Specifications” section in the Hardware Specifications document.


The Advanced Timing, Communications, and Control (TCC2) card performs system initialization, provisioning, alarm reporting, maintenance, diagnostics, IP address detection/resolution, SONET section overhead (SOH) data communications channel/generic communications channel (DCC/GCC) termination, optical service channel (OSC) DWDM data communications network (DCN) termination, and system fault detection for the ONS 15454. The TCC2 also ensures that the system maintains Stratum 3 (Telcordia GR-253-CORE) timing requirements. It monitors the supply voltage of the system.


Note The LAN interface of the TCC2 card meets the standard Ethernet specifications by supporting a cable length of 328 ft (100 m) at temperatures from 32 to 149 degrees Fahrenheit (0 to 65 degrees Celsius).


Install TCC2 cards in Slots 7 and 11 for redundancy. If the active TCC2 fails, traffic switches to the protect TCC2.

3.3.3 Related Procedures for TCC2 Card

The following is the list of procedures and tasks related to the configuration of the TCC2 card:

3.4 TCC2P Card

(Cisco ONS 15454 only)


Note For TCC2P card specifications, see the”TCC2P Card Specifications” section in the Hardware Specifications document.


The Advanced Timing, Communications, and Control Plus (TCC2P) card is an enhanced version of the TCC2 card. The primary enhancements are Ethernet security features and 64K composite clock BITS timing.

The TCC2P card performs system initialization, provisioning, alarm reporting, maintenance, diagnostics, IP address detection/resolution, SONET SOH DCC/GCC termination, and system fault detection for the ONS 15454. The TCC2P also ensures that the system maintains Stratum 3 (Telcordia GR-253-CORE) timing requirements. It monitors the supply voltage of the system.

The TCC2P card supports multi-shelf management. The TCC2P card acts as a shelf controller and node controller for the ONS 15454. The TCC2P card supports up to four subtended shelves through the MS-ISC card or external switch. In a multi-shelf configuration, the TCC2P card allows the ONS 15454 node to be a node controller and does not support subtending of ONS 15454 M6 shelves.

The TCC2P card is compliant to the following standards:

  • The LAN interface of the TCC2P card meets the standard Ethernet specifications by supporting a cable length of 328 ft (100 m) at temperatures from 32 to 149 degrees Fahrenheit (0 to 65 degrees Celsius). The interfaces can operate with a cable length of 32.8 ft (10 m) maximum at temperatures from –40 to 32 degrees Fahrenheit (–40 to 0 degrees Celsius).
  • The TCC2P card is Restriction of Use of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) complaint. The RoHS regulations limit or ban the specific substances such as lead, cadmium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB), mercury, hexavalent chromium, and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants in a new electronic and electric equipment.

Install TCC2P cards in Slots 7 and 11 for redundancy. If the active TCC2P card fails, traffic switches to the protect TCC2P card. All TCC2P card protection switches conform to protection switching standards when the bit error rate (BER) counts are not in excess of 1 * 10 exp – 3 and completion time is less than 50 ms.

3.5 TCC3 Card

(Cisco ONS 15454 only)


Note For TCC3 card specifications, see the “TCC3 Card Specifications” section in the Hardware Specifications document.


The Timing Communications Control Three (TCC3) card is an enhanced version of the TCC2P card. The primary enhancements include the increase in memory size and compact flash space. The TCC3 card boots up as TCC2P card in older releases and as TCC3 card from Release 9.2 onwards.

The TCC3 card performs system initialization, provisioning, alarm reporting, maintenance, diagnostics, IP address detection/resolution, SONET SOH DCC/GCC termination, and system fault detection for the ONS 15454. The TCC3 also ensures that the system maintains Stratum 3 (Telcordia GR-253-CORE) timing requirements. It monitors the supply voltage of the system.

The TCC3 card supports multi-shelf management. The TCC3 card acts as a shelf controller and node controller for the ONS 15454. The TCC3 card supports up to 30 subtended shelves through the MSM-ISC card or external switch. In a multi-shelf configuration, the TCC3 card allows the ONS 15454 node to be a node controller if an M6 shelf is subtended to it. We recommend the use of TCC3 card as a node controller when the number of subtended shelves exceeds four.

The TCC3 card is compliant with the following standards:

  • The LAN interface of the TCC3 card meets the standard Ethernet specifications by supporting a cable length of 328 ft (100 m) at temperatures ranging from 32 to 149 degrees Fahrenheit (0 to 65 degrees Celsius). The interfaces can operate with a cable length of 32.8 ft (10 m) maximum at temperatures from –40 to 32 degrees Fahrenheit (–40 to 0 degrees Celsius).
  • The TCC3 card is Restriction of Use of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) compliant. The RoHS regulations limit or ban the specific substances such as lead, cadmium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB), mercury, hexavalent chromium, and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants in a new electronic and electric equipment.

The following is the list of procedures and tasks related to the configuration of the TCC3 card:

3.6 TNC and TNCE Card

(Cisco ONS 15454 M2 and ONS 15454 M6 only)

The TNC and TNCE cards combine the functions of multiple cards such as TCC2P, OSCM, ISC, and AIC-I cards. The card has a similar look and feel to TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 cards.


Note For TNC and TNCE card specifications, see the “TNC and TNCE Card Specifications (Cisco ONS 15454 M2 and Cisco ONS 15454 M6)” section in the Hardware Specifications document.


The TNC and TNCE cards are provisioned as master and slave in the 15454-M6 shelf, and as a stand-alone card in the 15454-M2 shelf. The TNC and TNCE cards serve as the processor card for the node.

On the 15454-M6 shelf, install redundant TNC and TNCE cards in slots 1 and 8. If the active TNC or TNCE card fails, system traffic switches to the redundant TNC or TNCE card. The card supports line cards from slots 2 to 7.

On the 15454-M2 shelf, install the stand-alone TNC and TNCE cards in slot 1. The TNC and TNCE cards support line cards in slots 2 and 3.

The TNC and TNCE cards monitor both the supply voltage inputs on the 15454-M6 shelf. The TNC and TNCE cards raise an alarm if one of the supply voltage inputs has a voltage out of the specified range. The 15454-M2 shelf has dual power supply.

You can insert and remove the TNC and TNCE cards even when the system is online, without impacting the system traffic.

You can upgrade the TSC or TSCE card to a TNC or TNCE card. During the upgrade, the TNC and TNCE cards do not support OSC functions such as UDC, VoIP, DCC, and timing function. However, you can still provision the SFP ports on the TNC and TNCE cards during the upgrade. The TNC/TNCE and TSC/TSCE cards cannot be inserted in the same shelf.

The TNC and TNCE cards support all the alarms supported by the TCC2P and AIC-I cards. The card adjusts the fan speed according to the temperature and reports a fan failure alarm.


Note The LAN interface of the TNC and TNCE cards meet the standard Ethernet specifications by supporting a cable length of 328 ft (100 m) at temperatures from 32 to 149 degrees Fahrenheit (0 to 65 degrees Celsius). The interfaces can operate with a cable length of 32.8 ft (10 m) maximum at temperatures from -40 to 32 degrees Fahrenheit (-40 to 0 degrees Celsius).


3.6.1 Faceplate and Block Diagram

The faceplate design of the TNC and TNCE cards allow sufficient space to insert or remove cables while accessing the Ethernet and SFP ports.

The TNC and TNCE cards can be installed only in slots 1 or 8 of the ONS 15454 M6 shelf and in slot 1 of the ONS 15454 M2 shelf. The TNC and TNCE cards have an identifier on the faceplate that matches with an identifier in the shelf. A key is also provided on the backplane interface connectors as identifier in the shelf.

The TNC and TNCE cards support field-programmable gate array (FPGA) for the backplane interface. The TNC cards have two FPGA: TCCA, SYNTIDE and FRAMPOS

The TNCE cards have one FPGA: VEGA and FRAMPOS

3.7.3 Related Procedures for TSC and TSCE Cards

The following is the list of procedures and tasks related to the configuration of the TSC and TSCE cards:

3.8 Digital Image Signing

(Cisco ONS 15454 M2 and ONS 15454 M6 only)

The DIS feature complies with the new U.S. Government Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-3 to provide security for all software provided on the Cisco ONS 15454 M6 and ONS 15454 M2 platforms. This standard requires software to be digitally signed and verified for authenticity and integrity prior to load and execution.

DIS feature automatically provides increased protection. DIS focuses on software security and provides increased protection from attacks and threats to Cisco ONS 15454 M2 and ONS 15454 M6 products. DIS verifies software integrity and provides assurance that the software has not been tampered with or modified. Digitally signed Cisco software provides counterfeit protection.

New controller cards, such as TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE, provide services that authenticate the origin of the software running on the Cisco ONS 15454 M2 and Cisco ONS 15454 M6 platforms. The signage and verification process is transparent until verification fails.

3.8.1 DIS Identification

Digitally signed software can be identified by the last three characters appended to the working version and protected version field in CTC. The DIS conventions can be viewed under the working version displayed in the Maintenance > Software tab in CTC. For example, 9.2.0 (09.20-X10C-29.09-SDA) and 9.2.0 (09.20-010C-18.18-SPA).

The significance of the three characters appended to the software version is explained in Table:

Table 3-2 DIS Conventions in the Software Version

Character
Meaning

S (first character)

Indicates that the package is signed.

P or D (second character)

Production (P) or Development (D) image. Production image—Software approved for general release. Development image—development software provided under special conditions for limited use.

A (third character)

This third character indicates the version of the key used for signature generation. The version changes when a key is revoked and a new key is used. The values of the version key varies from A to Z.

3.8.2 Related Procedures for DIS

To verify DIS, see G250 Verify Digital Image Signing (DIS) Information.

3.9 AIC-I Card

(Cisco ONS 15454 only)


Note For hardware specifications, see the “AIC-I Card Specifications” section in the Hardware Specifications document.


The optional Alarm Interface Controller–International (AIC-I) card provides customer-defined (environmental) alarms and controls and supports local and express orderwire. It provides 12 customer-defined input and 4 customer-defined input/output contacts. The physical connections are via the backplane wire-wrap pin terminals. If you use the additional alarm expansion panel (AEP), the AIC-I card can support up to 32 inputs and 16 outputs, which are connected on the AEP connectors. The AEP is compatible with ANSI shelves only. A power monitoring function monitors the supply voltage (–48 VDC).

3.9.1 Faceplate and Block Diagram

Figure 3-8 shows the AIC-I faceplate and a block diagram of the card.

Figure 3-8 AIC-I Faceplate and Block Diagram

 

3.9.2 AIC-I Card-Level Indicators

Table G-2 lists the card-level LEDs on the card.

3.9.3 External Alarms and Controls

The AIC-I card provides input/output alarm contact closures. You can define up to 12 external alarm inputs and 4 external alarm inputs/outputs (user configurable). The physical connections are made using the backplane wire-wrap pins or FMEC connections. For information about increasing the number of input/output contacts, see the “ONS 15454 ANSI Alarm Expansion Panel” section in the Cisco CPT and Cisco ONS 15454 Hardware Installation Guide .

LEDs on the front panel of the AIC-I indicate the status of the alarm lines, one LED representing all of the inputs and one LED representing all of the outputs. External alarms (input contacts) are typically used for external sensors such as open doors, temperature sensors, flood sensors, and other environmental conditions. External controls (output contacts) are typically used to drive visual or audible devices such as bells and lights, but they can control other devices such as generators, heaters, and fans.

You can program each of the twelve input alarm contacts separately. You can program each of the sixteen input alarm contacts separately. Choices include:

  • Alarm on Closure or Alarm on Open
  • Alarm severity of any level (Critical, Major, Minor, Not Alarmed, Not Reported)
  • Service Affecting or Non-Service Affecting alarm-service level
  • 63-character alarm description for CTC display in the alarm log

You cannot assign the fan-tray abbreviation for the alarm; the abbreviation reflects the generic name of the input contacts. The alarm condition remains raised until the external input stops driving the contact or you provision the alarm input.

The output contacts can be provisioned to close on a trigger or to close manually. The trigger can be a local alarm severity threshold, a remote alarm severity, or a virtual wire:

  • Local NE alarm severity: A hierarchy of Not Reported, Not Alarmed, Minor, Major, or Critical alarm severities that you set to cause output closure. For example, if the trigger is set to Minor, a Minor alarm or above is the trigger.
  • Remote NE alarm severity: Same as the local NE alarm severity but applies to remote alarms only.
  • Virtual wire entities: You can provision any environmental alarm input to raise a signal on any virtual wire on external outputs 1 through 4 when the alarm input is an event. You can provision a signal on any virtual wire as a trigger for an external control output.

You can also program the output alarm contacts (external controls) separately. In addition to provisionable triggers, you can manually force each external output contact to open or close. Manual operation takes precedence over any provisioned triggers that might be present.


Note For ANSI shelves, the number of inputs and outputs can be increased using the AEP. The AEP is connected to the shelf backplane and requires an external wire-wrap panel.


3.9.4 Orderwire

Orderwire allows a craftsperson to plug a phoneset into an ONS 15454 and communicate with craftspeople working at other ONS 15454s or other facility equipment. The orderwire is a pulse code modulation (PCM) encoded voice channel that uses E1 or E2 bytes in section/line overhead.

The AIC-I allows simultaneous use of both local (section overhead signal) and express (line overhead channel) orderwire channels on a SONET/SDH ring or particular optics facility. Express orderwire also allows communication via regeneration sites when the regenerator is not a Cisco device.

You can provision orderwire functions with CTC similar to the current provisioning model for DCC/GCC channels. In CTC, you provision the orderwire communications network during ring turn-up so that all NEs on the ring can reach one another. Orderwire terminations (that is, the optics facilities that receive and process the orderwire channels) are provisionable. Both express and local orderwire can be configured as on or off on a particular SONET/SDH facility. The ONS 15454 supports up to four orderwire channel terminations per shelf. This allows linear, single ring, dual ring, and small hub-and-spoke configurations. Orderwire is not protected in ring topologies such as bidirectional line switched ring (BLSR), multiplex section-shared protection ring (MS-SPRing), path protection, or subnetwork connection protection (SNCP) ring.


Caution Do not configure orderwire loops. Orderwire loops cause feedback that disables the orderwire channel.

The ONS 15454 implementation of both local and express orderwire is broadcast in nature. The line acts as a party line. Anyone who picks up the orderwire channel can communicate with all other participants on the connected orderwire subnetwork. The local orderwire party line is separate from the express orderwire party line. Up to four OC-N/STM-N facilities for each local and express orderwire are provisionable as orderwire paths.

The AIC-I supports selective dual tone multifrequency (DTMF) dialing for telephony connectivity, which causes one AIC-I card or all ONS 15454 AIC-I cards on the orderwire subnetwork to “ring.” The ringer/buzzer resides on the AIC-I. There is also a “ring” LED that mimics the AIC-I ringer. It flashes when a call is received on the orderwire subnetwork. A party line call is initiated by pressing *0000 on the DTMF pad. Individual dialing is initiated by pressing * and the individual four-digit number on the DTMF pad.

Table 3-3 shows the pins on the orderwire connector that correspond to the tip and ring orderwire assignments.

3.9.5 Power Monitoring

The AIC-I card provides a power monitoring circuit that monitors the supply voltage of –48 VDC for presence, undervoltage, and overvoltage.

3.9.6 User Data Channel

The user data channel (UDC) features a dedicated data channel of 64 kbps (F1 byte) between two nodes in an ONS 15454 network. Each AIC-I card provides two user data channels, UDC-A and UDC-B, through separate RJ-11 connectors on the front of the AIC-I card. Each UDC can be routed to an individual optical interface in the ONS 15454.

The UDC ports are standard RJ-11 receptacles. Table 3-4 lists the UDC pin assignments.

3.10 MS-ISC-100T Card

(Cisco ONS 15454 only)


Note For hardware specifications, see the “MS-ISC-100T Card Specifications” section in the Hardware Specifications document.


The Multishelf Internal Switch Card (MS-ISC-100T) is an Ethernet switch used to implement the multishelf LAN. It connects the node controller shelf to the network and to subtending shelves. The MS-ISC-100T must always be equipped on the node controller shelf; it cannot be provisioned on a subtending controller shelf.

The recommended configuration is to implement LAN redundancy using two MS-ISC-100T cards: one switch is connected to the Ethernet front panel port of the TCC2/TCC2P card in Slot 7, and the other switch is connected to the Ethernet front panel port of the TCC2/TCC2P card in Slot 11. The Ethernet configuration of the MS-ISC-100T card is part of the software package and is automatically loaded. The MS-ISC-100T card operates in Slots 1 to 6 and 12 to 17 on the node controller shelf; the recommended slots are Slot 6 and Slot 12.

Table 3-6 lists the MS-ISC-100T port assignments.

DLP-G33 Install the TCC2, TCC2P, or TCC3 Card

 

Purpose

This task installs redundant TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 cards. The first card you install in the ONS 15454 must be a TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 card, and it must initialize before you install any cross-connect or traffic cards. Cross-connect cards are only required in hybrid nodes.

Tools/Equipment

Two TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 cards

Prerequisite Procedures

None

Required/As Needed

Required

Onsite/Remote

Onsite

Security Level

None


Caution Do not remove a TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 card during the software transfer process, which is indicated by alternate flashing FAIL and ACT/STBY LEDs. Removing a TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 during the software transfer process will corrupt the system memory.


Note Allow each card to boot completely before installing the next card.



Step 1 Open the latches/ejectors of the first TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 card that you will install.

Step 2 Use the latches/ejectors to firmly slide the card along the guide rails until the card plugs into the receptacle at the back of the slot (Slot 7 or 11).


Note In Step 4, you will be instructed to watch the LED activity (sequence) on the front of the TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 card. This activity begins immediately after you close the latches in Step 3.


Step 3 Verify that the card is inserted correctly and close the latches/ejectors on the card.


Note It is possible to close the latches/ejectors when the card is not completely plugged into the back panel of the shelf. Ensure that you cannot insert the card any farther.


If you insert a card into a slot provisioned for a different card, all LEDs turn off.

Step 4 As needed, go to Step a to verify the LED activity on the TCC2 card. For the TCC2P go to Step b . For the TCC3 card go to Step c .

a. For the TCC2 card:

  • All LEDs turn on briefly. The red FAIL LED and the yellow ACT/STBY LED turn on for about 15 seconds. (For TCC3 card it takes around 20 to 25 seconds)
  • The red FAIL LED and the green ACT/STBY LED turn on for about 40 seconds.
  • The red FAIL LED blinks for about 15 seconds.
  • The red FAIL LED turns on for about 15 seconds. All LEDs turn on for about 3 seconds before turning off for about 3 seconds.
  • Both green PWR LEDs turn on for 10 seconds. The PWR LEDs then turn red for 2 to 3 minutes before going to steady green.
  • While the PWR LEDs are red for two to three minutes, the ACT/STBY turn on.
  • The boot-up process is complete when the PWR LEDs turn green and the ACT/STBY remains on. (The ACT/STBY LED will be green if this is the first TCC2 card installed, and amber if this is the second TCC2 card installed.)

Note It might take up to four minutes for the A and B power alarms to clear.



Note Alarm LEDs might be on; disregard alarm LEDs until you are logged into CTC and can view the Alarms tab.



Note If you are logged into CTC, the SFTWDOWN alarm might appear as many as two times while the TCC2 card initializes. The alarm should clear after the card completely boots.



Note If the FAIL LED is on continuously, see the tip in Step 8 about the TCC2 card automatic upload.


b. For the TCC2P card:

  • All LEDs turn on briefly. The red FAIL LED, the yellow ACT/STBY LED, the green SYNC LED, and the green ACO LED turn on for about 15 seconds.
  • The red FAIL LED and the green ACT/STBY LED turn on for about 30 seconds.
  • The red FAIL LED blinks for about 3 seconds.
  • The red FAIL LED turns on for about 15 seconds.
  • The red FAIL LED blinks for about 10 seconds and then becomes solid.
  • All LEDs (including the CRIT, MAJ, MIN, REM, SYNC, and ACO LEDs) blink once and turn off for about 5 seconds.
  • Both green PWR LEDs turn on for 10 seconds. The PWR LEDs then turn red for 2 to 3 minutes before going to steady green. During this time, the ACT/STBY, MJ, and MN LEDs might turn on, followed by the SNYC LED briefly.
  • The boot-up process is complete when the PWR LEDs turn green and the yellow ACT/STBY remains on. (The ACT/STBY LED will be green if this is the first TCC2P card installed, and yellow if this is the second TCC2P card installed.)

Note It might take up to three minutes for the A and B power alarms to clear.



Note Alarm LEDs might be on; disregard alarm LEDs until you are logged into CTC and can view the Alarms tab.



Note If you are logged into CTC, the SFTWDOWN alarm might appear as many as two times while the TCC2P card initializes. The alarm should clear after the card completely boots.



Note If the FAIL LED is on continuously, see the tip in Step 8 about the TCC2P card automatic upload.


c. For the TCC3 card:

  • All LEDs turn on briefly. The red FAIL LED, the yellow ACT/STBY LED, the green SYNC LED, and the green ACO LED turn on for about 25 seconds.
  • The red FAIL LED and the green ACT/STBY LED turn on for about 15 seconds.
  • The red FAIL LED blinks for about 3 seconds.
  • The red FAIL LED turns on for about 60 seconds.
  • The red FAIL LED blinks for about 15 seconds and then becomes solid (the LED is turned on for about 20 seconds).
  • All LEDs (including the CRIT, MAJ, MIN, REM, SYNC, and ACO LEDs) blink once and turn off for about 5 seconds.
  • Both green PWR LEDs turn on for 10 seconds. The PWR LEDs then turn red for 2 to 3 minutes before going to steady green. During this time, the ACT/STBY, MJ, and MN LEDs might turn on, followed by the SNYC LED briefly.
  • The boot-up process is complete when the PWR LEDs turn green and the yellow ACT/STBY remains on. (The ACT/STBY LED will be green if this is the first TCC3 card installed, and yellow if this is the second TCC3 card installed.)

Note It might take up to three minutes for the A and B power alarms to clear.



Note Alarm LEDs might be on; disregard alarm LEDs until you are logged into CTC and can view the Alarms tab.



Note If you are logged into CTC, the SFTWDOWN alarm might appear as many as two times while the TCC3 card initializes. The alarm should clear after the card completely boots.



Note If the FAIL LED is on continuously, see the tip in Step 8 about the TCC3 card automatic upload.


Step 5 Verify that the ACT/STBY LED is green if this is the first powered-up TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 card installed, or yellow for standby if this is the second powered-up TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3. The IP address, temperature of the node, and time of day appear on the LCD. The default time and date is 12:00 AM, January 1, 1970.

Step 6 The LCD cycles through the IP address (the default is 192.1.0.2), node name, and software version. Verify that the correct software version is shown on the LCD. The software text string indicates the node type (SDH or SONET) and software release. (For example: SDH 09.20-05L-20.10 indicates it is an SDH software load, Release 9.2. The numbers following the release number do not have any significance.)

Step 7 If the LCD shows the correct software version, continue with Step 8. If the LCD does not show the correct software version, refer to your next level of technical support, upgrade the software, or remove the TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 card and install a replacement card.

Refer to the release-specific software upgrade document to replace the software. To replace the TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 card, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Troubleshooting Guide.

Step 8 Repeat Steps 1 through 7 for the redundant TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 card. If both TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 cards are already installed, proceed to Step 9 .


Tip If you install a standby TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 card that has a different software version than the active TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 card, the newly installed standby TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 card automatically copies the software version from the active TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 card. You do not need to do anything in this situation. However, the loading TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 card does not boot up in the normal manner. When the standby card is first inserted, the LEDs follow most of the normal boot-up sequence. However, after the red FAIL LED turns on for about 5 seconds, the FAIL LED and the ACT/STBY LED begin to flash alternately for up to 30 minutes while the new software loads onto the active TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 card. After loading the new software, the upgraded TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 card’s LEDs repeat the appropriate bootup sequence, and the amber ACT/STBY LED turns on.



Note If you insert a card into a slot provisioned for a different card, all LEDs turn off.



Note Alarm LEDs might be on; disregard alarm LEDs until you are logged into CTC and can view the Alarms tab.

NTP-G249 Upgrade the TCC2/TCC2P Card to the TCC3 Card

 

Purpose

This procedure upgrades the TCC2/TCC2P card to the TCC3 card.

Tools/Equipment

Two TCC3 cards

Prerequisite Procedures

DLP-G46 Log into CTC

Required/As Needed

As needed

Onsite/Remote

Onsite

Security Level

Maintenance or higher


Note Downgrade procedures from TCC3 cards to TCC2P/TCC2 cards are not supported. Log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/cisco/web/support/index.html for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).



Step 1 Verify that the LAN wires on the backplane are installed properly. The TCC3 card does not autodetect miswired LAN connections. If a LAN connection is miswired, a LAN Connection Polarity Reversed condition appears.

Step 2 Verify that the node you are upgrading has 9.3 installed. The software version is displayed in the upper left corner of the window.

Step 3 Back up the database before beginning the upgrade.

Step 4 Physically replace the standby TCC2/TCC2P card with a TCC3 card.

a. Check the LED on the faceplate. The ACT/STBY LED on the faceplate of the TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 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 standby TCC2/TCC2P card ejectors.

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

d. Open the ejectors on the TCC3 card to be installed.

e. Slide the TCC3 card into the slot along the guide rails.

f. Close the ejectors.

g. In CTC node view, Ldg (loading) appears on the newly installed TCC3.


Note It takes approximately 10 minutes for the active TCC2/TCC2P card to copy the system software and database to the newly installed TCC3 card. During this operation, the LEDs on the TCC3 card flash Fail and then the active/standby LED flashes. When the transfer completes, the TCC3 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 TCC2/TCC2P card resets during the upgrade before the new TCC3 card is in full standby mode, remove the new TCC3 card immediately.

Step 5 When the newly installed TCC3 card is in standby, right-click active TCC2/TCC2P card in CTC.

Step 6 From the pull-down menu, click Reset Card .

Wait for the TCC2/TCC2P card to reboot. The software switches the standby TCC3 card to the active mode. The TCC2/TCC2P card verifies that it has the same database as the TCC3 card and then switches to standby.

Step 7 Verify that the remaining TCC2/TCC2P card is now in standby mode (the ACT/STBY LED changes to amber).

Step 8 Physically replace the remaining TCC2/TCC2P card with the second TCC3 card.

a. Open the TCC2/TCC2P card ejectors.

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

c. Open the ejectors on the TCC3 card.

d. Slide the TCC3 card into the slot along the guide rails.

e. Close the ejectors.


Tip When a newly installed TCC3 card has a different version of the software installed from the version running on the active TCC3 card, the newly installed TCC3 card automatically copies the software version running on the active TCC3 card. You do not need to do anything in this situation. However, loading the TCC3 card does not boot up in the normal manner. When the card is first inserted, the red FAIL LED stays on for a short period. The FAIL LED then blinks normally and all LEDs go dark. After loading the new software for approximately 10 minutes, the TCC3 card becomes the standby card and the amber LED is illuminated.


Step 9 If power-related alarms occur after the second TCC3 card is installed, check the voltage on the backplane.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.

Note The ONS 15454 M2 shelf supports stand-alone control cards such as TNC, TSC, TNCE, or TSCE. During replacement or removal of the control card, ensure that the optical fibers are not disturbed. The fibers must be correctly routed in the retention feature mounted on the front side of the shelf.



Caution Do not remove the TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE cards during the software installation process, which is indicated by alternate flashing FAIL and ACT/STBY LEDs. Removing the TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE cards during the software installation process will corrupt the system memory.


Note Allow each TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card to boot completely before installing the redundant TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card.



Note On the ONS 15454 M6 shelf, install the TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE cards in slots 1 and 8 for redundancy. On the ONS 15454 M2 shelf, install the stand-alone TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card in slot 1. For more information, see the “Card Slot Requirements” section in the Cisco CPT and Cisco ONS 15454 Hardware Installation Guide.



Note You cannot insert the TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE cards in other slots due to mechanical constraints. To identify the card slot, match the symbol placed on the lower side of the card front panel with the symbol in the shelf.



Caution To achieve redundancy, two TNC and TNCE cards or two TSC and TSCE cards must be installed in the ONS 15454 M6 shelf. Do not install one TNC or TNCE card and a redundant TSC or TSCE card in the same shelf.


Step 1 Open the latches/ejectors of the first TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card that you will install.

Step 2 Use the latches/ejectors to firmly slide the card horizontally along the guide rails until the card plugs into the receptacle at the back of the slot (slot 1 or 8 in the ONS 15454 M6 shelf and slot 1 in the ONS 15454 M2 shelf).

Step 3 Verify that the card is inserted correctly, and close the latches/ejectors on the card.

If you insert a card into a slot assigned for a different card, all LEDs turn off.

Step 4 As needed, verify the LED activity on the TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card.

  • The red FAIL LED, PWR LED turn on briefly.
  • The red FAIL LED turns on for about 10 seconds.
  • The red FAIL LED and the amber ACT/STBY LED turn on for about 30 seconds.
  • The red FAIL LED blinks for about 10 seconds.
  • The red FAIL LED turns on for about 15 seconds.
  • All the LEDs including the CRIT, MAJ, MIN, REM, SYNC, and ACO LEDs blink once and turn off for about 10 seconds.
  • ACT/STBY LED blinks for about 1 second.
  • All the LEDs including the CRIT, MAJ, MIN, REM, SYNC, and ACO LEDs turn off for about 10 seconds.
  • The ACT/STBY, ACO, and PWR LEDs turn on.
  • The boot-up process is complete when the PWR LEDs turn green and the amber ACT/STBY remains on. The ACT/STBY LED turns green if this is the first TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card installed, and amber if this is the second TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card installed.

Note It might take up to four minutes for the power alarms to clear.



Note Alarm LEDs might be on. After completing the TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card installation, log in to CTC and click the Alarms tab to display the alarms raised on the card. For procedure to clear the alarm, see the Cisco ONS DWDM Troubleshooting Guide.



Note During the TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card initialization, the SFTWDOWN alarm appears twice. The alarm clears after the TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card boots completely.



Note If the FAIL LED is on continuously, see the tip in Step 8 about the TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card automatic upload.


Figure 3-15 illustrates the installation of TNC and TNCE cards on ONS 15454 M6 shelf.

Step 5 Verify that the ACT/STBY LED is green if this is the first powered-up TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card installed or amber if this is the second powered-up TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE. The IP address, temperature of the node, and time of day appear on the LCD. The default time and date is 12:00 AM, January 1, 1970.

Step 6 The LCD cycles through the IP address (the default is 192.1.0.2), node name, and software version. Verify that the correct software version is shown on the LCD. The software text string indicates the node type (SDH or SONET) and software release. (For example: SDH 09.20-05L-20.10 indicates it is an SDH software load, Release 9.2. The numbers following the release number do not have any significance.)

Step 7 If the LCD shows the correct software version, continue with Step 8. If the LCD does not show the correct software version, refer to your next level of technical support, upgrade the software, or remove the TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card and install a replacement card. Refer to the release-specific software upgrade document to replace the software.

Step 8 (ONS 15454 M6 shelf only) Repeat Steps 1 through 7 for the redundant TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card.


Tip If you install a standby TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card that has a different software version than the active TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card, the standby TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card copies the software version from the active TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card. When the standby card is first inserted, the LEDs follow the normal boot-up sequence. However, after the red FAIL LED turns on for about 5 seconds, the FAIL LED and the ACT/STBY LED begin to flash alternately for up to 30 minutes. After loading the new software, the upgraded TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE cards LEDs repeat the appropriate bootup sequence, and the amber ACT/STBY LED turns on.


Step 9 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

Note Downgrade procedures from TNC or TNCE cards to TSC or TSCE cards are not supported. Log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/cisco/web/support/index.html for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).



Step 1 Verify that the node you are upgrading has 9.3 installed. The software version is displayed in the upper left corner of the window.

Step 2 Back up the database before beginning the upgrade.

Step 3 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 4 When the newly installed TNC card is in standby, right-click active TSC card in CTC.

Step 5 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 6 Verify that the remaining TSC card is now in standby mode (the ACT/STBY LED changes to amber).

Step 7 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.

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 8 If power-related alarms occur after the second TNC card is installed, check the voltage on the RJ-45 LAN port. Refer to the troubleshooting guide for information on clearing the alarms.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.
