EX Commands

This chapter provides exercise (EX) commands for Cisco ONS 15454, Cisco ONS 15454 M2, and Cisco ONS 15454 M6.


NoteAll commands supported on the Cisco ONS 15454 platform are also supported on Cisco ONS 15454 M2 and Cisco ONS 15454 M6 platforms.


13.1 EX-SW-<OCN_BLSR>

( Cisco ONS 15454) The Exercise Protection Switch for OC12, OC48, OC192, or OC768 (EX-SW-<OCN_BLSR>) command exercises the algorithm for switching from a working facility to a protection facility without actually performing a switch. It is assumed that the facility being exercised is the working unit. The success or failure of the exercise switching will be indicated by an automatic alarm.

 
Usage Guidelines

See Table 28-1 for supported modifiers by platform.

Exercise switch for the SONET protection line is not supported in this release. If sending this command to the protection unit, an error message will be returned. In addition to all normal INPUT, EQUIPAGE, and PRIVILEGE error codes, the following error codes are also included in this command:

  • SNVS (Status, Not in Valid State)
  • SROF (Status, Requested Operation Failed)
  • SSRD (Status, Switch Request Denied)

Note • If you send the EX-SW-<OCN_BLSR> command to both the east and the west sides/spans of a two-fiber or four-fiber ring within a short time period (less than 30 to 45 seconds) the system will only execute one (WEST) side EXER-RING query, and preempt the other (EAST) side query. There will be no event messages reported for the preempted side, and it will be in APS-CLEAR switching state.Examples of this are:

A single command with both side/span AIDs (in the list AID format) of the same two-fiber or four-fiber ring

Separate queries (through TL1 or Cisco Transport Controller [CTC], or TL1 and CTC) on both sides/spans of the same two-fiber or four-fiber ring

  • DIRN is an optional parameter. A NULL value of this parameter defaults to BTH for a two-fiber or four-fiber BLSR protection group. DIRN follows these rules:

TRMT will always fail for any kind of protection group.

For two-fiber and four-fiber BLSR protection groups, both the RCV and TRMT direction will fail.

Only BTH is a valid parameter. EX-SW-<OCN_TYPE> can be operated only on bidirectional line switched ring (BLSR) protection groups.

Input Format

EX-SW-<OCN_BLSR>:[<TID>]:<AID>:<CTAG>::,[<SWITCHTYPE>],[<DIRECTION>];

Input Example

EX-SW-OC48:CISCO:FAC-12-1:123::,SPAN,BTH;

Input Parameters

<AID>

Access identifier from the “FACILITY” section. Identifies the facility in the NE to which the switch request is directed.

<SWITCHTYPE>

Switch type. Must not be null. The parameter type is SWITCH_TYPE, which is the BLSR switch type. MANWKSWBK, MANWKSWPR, FRCDWKSWBK, FRCDWKSWPR, LOCKOUTOFPR, and LOCKOUTOFWK are retrieve-only values for RTRV-PROTNSW-OCn commands. They are not applicable for the OPR-PROTNSW-OCn commands. RING and SPAN are the only allowed values for BLSR protection.

  • FRCDWKSWBK

Working unit is forced to switch back to working

  • FRCDWKSWPR

Working unit is forced to switch to the protection unit

  • LOCKOUTOFPR

Lock out of protection

  • LOCKOUTOFWK

Lock out of working

  • MANWKSWBK

Manual switch of working unit back to working

  • MANWKSWPR

Manual switch of working unit back to the protection unit

  • RING

BLSR ring switch type

  • SPAN

BLSR span switch type

<DIRECTION>

Direction. A null value defaults to RCV. The parameter type is DIRECTION (transmit and receive direction)

  • BTH

Both transmit and receive directions

  • RCV

Receive direction only

  • TRMT

Transmit direction only
