Installing the ONS 15454 (ANSI and ETSI) Shelf

This chapter explains how to install the ONS 15454 (ANSI and ETSI) shelf.

3.1 ONS 15454 ANSI Rack Installation

The ONS 15454 ANSI shelf is mounted in a 19- or 23-in. (482.6- or 584.2-mm) equipment rack. The shelf projects five inches (127 mm) from the front of the rack. It mounts in both Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA) standard and Telcordia-standard racks. The shelf is a total of 17 inches (431.8 mm) wide with no mounting ears attached. Ring runs are not provided by Cisco and might hinder side-by-side installation of shelves where space is limited.

The ONS 15454 ANSI assembly measures 18.5 inches (469.9 mm) high, 19 or 23 inches (482.6 or 584.2 mm) wide (depending on which way the mounting ears are attached), and 12 inches (304.8 mm) deep. You can install up to four ONS 15454 ANSIs in a seven-foot (2133.6 mm) equipment rack. The ONS 15454 ANSI must have one inch (25.4 mm) of airspace below the installed shelf to allow air flow to the fan intake. If a second ONS 15454 ANSI is installed underneath the shelf, the air ramp on top of the lower shelf provides the air spacing needed and should not be modified in any way. Figure 3-1 shows the dimensions of the ONS 15454 ANSI.


Note A 10-Gbps-compatible shelf (15454-SA-ANSI or 15454-SA-HD) and fan-tray assembly (15454-FTA3, 15454-FTA3-T, or 15454-CC-FTA) are required if ONS 15454 ANSI 10-Gbps Cross-Connect (XC10G) cards are installed in the shelf.


Figure 3-1 ONS 15454 ANSI Shelf Dimensions

 

3.1.1 Reversible Mounting Bracket


Caution Use only the fastening hardware provided with the ONS 15454 ANSI shelf to prevent loosening, deterioration, and electromechanical corrosion of the hardware and joined material.


Caution When mounting the ONS 15454 ANSI shelf in a frame with a nonconductive coating (such as paint, lacquer, or enamel) either use the thread-forming screws provided with the ONS 15454 ANSI shipping kit, or remove the coating from the threads to ensure electrical continuity.

The shelf comes preset for installation in a 23-inch (584.2 mm) rack, but you can reverse the mounting bracket to fit the smaller 19-inch (482.6 mm) rack.

3.1.2 Mounting a Single Node

Mounting the ONS 15454 ANSI shelf in a rack requires a minimum of 18.5 inches (469.9 mm) of vertical rack space and one additional inch (25.4 mm) for air flow. To ensure the mounting is secure, use two to four #12-24 mounting screws for each side of the shelf. Figure 3-2 shows the rack mounting position for the ONS 15454 ANSI shelf.

Figure 3-2 Mounting an ONS 15454 ANSI Shelf in a Rack

 

Two people should install the shelf; however, one person can install it using the temporary set screws included. The shelf should be empty for easier lifting. The front door can also be removed to lighten the shelf.

3.1.3 Mounting Multiple Nodes

Most standard (Telcordia GR-63-CORE, 19-inch [482.6-mm] or 23-inch [584.2-mm]) seven-foot (2.133-m) racks can hold four ONS 15454 ANSI shelves and a fuse and alarm panel. However, unequal flange racks are limited to three ONS 15454 ANSI shelves and a fuse and alarm panel, or four ONS 15454 ANSI shelves using a fuse and alarm panel from an adjacent rack.

If you are using the external (bottom) brackets to install the fan-tray air filter, you can install three shelf assemblies in a standard seven-foot (2.133-m) rack. If you are not using the external (bottom) brackets, you can install four shelf assemblies in a rack. The advantage of using the bottom brackets is that you can replace the filter without removing the fan-tray.

3.1.4 ONS 15454 ANSI Bay Assembly

The Cisco ONS 15454 ANSI bay assembly simplifies ordering and installing the ONS 15454 ANSI shelf because it allows you to order shelf assemblies preinstalled in a seven-foot (2,133 mm) rack. The bay assembly is available in a three- or four-shelf configuration. The three-shelf configuration includes three ONS 15454 ANSI shelf assemblies, a prewired fuse and alarm panel, and two fiber-storage trays. The four-shelf configuration includes four ONS 15454 ANSI shelf assemblies and a prewired fuse and alarm panel. You can order optional fiber channels with either configuration. Installation procedures are included in the Unpacking and Installing the Cisco ONS 15454 Four-Shelf and Zero-Shelf Bay Assembly document that ships with the bay assembly.

3.2 ONS 15454 ETSI Rack Installation

The ONS 15454 ETSI shelf (15454-SA-ETSI) is mounted in a 600 x 600-mm (23-inch) or 600 x 300-mm (11.8-inch) equipment cabinet/rack. The shelf projects 240 mm (9.45 inches) from the front of the rack. It mounts in ETSI-standard racks. The shelf is a total of 435 mm (17.35 inches) wide with no mounting ears attached. Ring runs are not provided by Cisco and might hinder side-by-side installation of shelves where space is limited.

The ONS 15454 ETSI shelf measures 616.5 mm (24.27 inches) high, 535 mm (21.06 inches) wide, and 280 mm (11.02 inches) deep. You can install up to three ONS 15454 ETSI shelves in a seven-foot (2133.6 mm) equipment rack. The ONS 15454 ETSI must have one inch (25.4 mm) of airspace below the installed shelf to allow air flow to the fan intake. If a second ONS 15454 ETSI is installed below the first shelf, an ETSI air ramp unit must be assembled between the two shelves to ensure adequate air flow.

Figure 3-3 provides the dimensions of the ONS 15454 ETSI shelf.


Caution The standard ETSI racks can hold three ONS 15454 ETSI shelf assemblies and two air ramps. When mounting a shelf in a partially filled rack, load the rack from the bottom to the top with the heaviest component at the bottom of the rack. If the rack is provided with stabilizing devices, install the stabilizers before mounting or servicing the unit in the rack.


Caution The ONS 15454 ETSI must have 1 inch (25.4 mm) of airspace below the installed shelf to allow air flow to the fan intake. The air ramp (the angled piece of sheet metal on top of the shelf) provides this spacing and should not be modified in any way.

Figure 3-3 ONS 15454 ETSI Shelf Dimensions

 

3.2.1 Mounting a Single Node

The ONS 15454 ETSI requires 616.5 mm (24.24 inch) minimum of vertical rack space and 25 mm (1 inch) below the installed shelf to allow air flow to the fan intake. If a second ONS 15454 ETSI is installed above a shelf, the air ramp between the shelves provides space for air flow. To ensure the mounting is secure, use two to four M6 mounting screws for each side of the shelf. A shelf should be mounted at the bottom of the rack if it is the only unit in the rack.

Figure 3-4 shows the rack mounting position for the ONS 15454 ETSI shelf.

Note To install the air filter inside the air ramp unit (15454E-AIR-RAMP or 15454-AIR-RAMP), use the ETSI version of the air filter (15454-FTF2 or 15454E-FTF4).



Caution Although the air filter can work with older fan-trays if it is installed with either side facing up, Cisco recommends that you install it with the metal bracing facing up to preserve the surface of the filter. You must install the air filter with the metal bracing facing up with 15454-CC-FTA.


Note If you choose not to install the brackets, install the air filter by sliding it into the compartment at the bottom of the shelf. Each time you remove and reinstall the air filter in the future, you must first remove the fan-tray assembly. Do not install an air filter in both filter locations on any shelf.



Step 1 With the fan-tray assembly removed, place the ONS 15454 facedown on a flat surface.


Caution Although the air filter can work with older fan-trays if it is installed with either side facing up, Cisco recommends that you install it with the metal bracing facing up to preserve the surface of the filter. You must install the air filter with the metal bracing facing up with 15454-CC-FTA.

Step 2 Locate the three screw holes that run along the left and right sides of the bottom of the shelf.

Step 3 Secure each bracket to the bottom of the shelf using the screws (48-0003) provided in the backplane standoff kit (53-0795-XX).

Each bracket has a filter stopper and a flange on one end. Make sure to attach the brackets with the stoppers and flanges facing the rear of the shelf (the top, if the ONS 15454 is facedown during installation).

Figure 3-7 illustrates bottom bracket installation. If you do not use the brackets, in the future you must remove the fan-tray assembly before removing the air filter. The brackets enable you to clean and replace the air filter without removing the fan-tray assembly.

Step 11 Repeat for the other side of the assembly.

Step 12 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).


 

3.3 Front Door

The Critical, Major, and Minor alarm LEDs visible through the front door indicate whether a critical, major, or minor alarm is present anywhere on the ONS 15454 shelf. These LEDs must be visible so that technicians can quickly determine if any alarms are present on the ONS 15454 shelf or the network. You can use the LCD to further isolate alarms. The front door (Figure 3-14) provides access to the shelf, fiber-storage tray, fan-tray assembly, and LCD screen.

Figure 3-14 The ONS 15454 Front Door

 

The ONS 15454 ANSI ships with a standard door but can also accommodate a deep door and extended fiber clips (15454-DOOR-KIT) to provide additional room for cabling (Figure 3-15). The ONS 15454 ETSI does not support the deep door.

Figure 3-15 Cisco ONS 15454 ANSI Deep Door

 

The ONS 15454 door locks with a pinned hex key that ships with the shelf. A button on the right side of the shelf releases the door. You can remove the front door to provide unrestricted access to the front of the shelf.


Note To mount the air ramp on an ONS 15454 ANSI with a deep door, mounting brackets (Cisco P/N 700-25319-01 for 19" deep door, and 700-25287-01 for 23" deep door) are provided.


Before you remove the ONS 15454 front door, you must remove the ground strap of the front door (Figure 3-16).

Figure 3-16 ONS 15454 ANSI Front Door Ground Strap

 

Figure 3-17 shows how to remove the ONS 15454 ANSI front door.

3.4 ONS 15454 ANSI Backplane Covers

If a backplane does not have an electrical interface assembly (EIA) panel installed, it should have two sheet metal backplane covers (one on each side of the backplane). See Figure 3-23. Each cover is held in place with nine 6-32 x 3/8 inch Phillips screws.

Figure 3-23 Backplane Covers

 

3.4.1 Lower Backplane Cover

The lower section of the ONS 15454 ANSI backplane is covered by either a clear plastic protector (15454-SA-ANSI) or a sheet metal cover (15454-SA-HD), which is held in place by five 6-32 x 1/2 inch screws. Remove the lower backplane cover to access the alarm interface panel (AIP), alarm pin fields, frame ground, and power terminals (Figure 3-24).

Figure 3-24 Removing the Lower Backplane Cover

 

3.4.2 Rear Cover

The ONS 15454 ANSI has an optional clear plastic rear cover. This clear plastic cover provides additional protection for the cables and connectors on the backplane. Figure 3-54 shows the rear cover screw locations.

Figure 3-25 Backplane Attachment for Cover

 

You can also install the optional spacers if more space is needed between the cables and rear cover (Figure 3-26).

Figure 3-26 Installing the Plastic Rear Cover with Spacers

 

3.4.3 Alarm Interface Panel

The AIP is located above the alarm contacts on the lower section of the backplane. The AIP provides surge protection for the ONS 15454 ANSI. It also provides an interface from the backplane to the fan-tray assembly and LCD. The AIP plugs into the backplane using a 96-pin DIN connector and is held in place with two retaining screws. The panel has a nonvolatile memory chip that stores the unique node address (MAC address). The MAC address identifies the nodes that support circuits. It allows Cisco Transport Controller (CTC) to determine circuit sources, destinations, and spans. The TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 cards in the ONS 15454 ANSI also use the MAC address to store the node database.


Note The 5-A AIP (73-7665-XX) is required when installing fan-tray assembly 15454-FTA3 or 15454-CC-FTA, which comes preinstalled on the shelf (15454-SA-ANSI or 15454-SA-HD).



Note A blown fuse on the AIP board can cause the LCD display to go blank.


3.4.4 Alarm Interface Panel Replacement

If the AIP fails, a MAC Fail alarm appears on the CTC Alarms menu and/or the LCD display on the fan-tray assembly goes blank. To perform an in-service replacement of the AIP, you must contact the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (Cisco TAC). For contact information, see the “$paratext>” section.

You can replace the AIP on an in-service system without affecting traffic (except Ethernet traffic on nodes running a release earlier than Software Release 4.0). The circuit repair feature allows you to repair circuits affected by MAC address changes on one node at a time. Circuit repair works when all nodes are running the same software version. Each individual AIP upgrade requires an individual circuit repair; if AIPs are replaced on two nodes, the circuit repair must be performed twice. Always replace an AIP during a maintenance window.


Caution Do not use a 2-A AIP with a 5-A fan-tray assembly; doing so causes a blown fuse on the AIP.


Note Ensure that all nodes in the affected network are running the same software version before replacing the AIP and repairing circuits. If you need to upgrade nodes to the same software version, no hardware should be changed or circuit repair performed until after the software upgrade is complete.

Note The battery return connection is treated as DC-I, as defined in Telcordia GR-1089-CORE Issue 4 and 5.



Note If the system loses power or both TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 cards are reset and the system is not provisioned to get the time from a Network Time Protocol/Simple Network Time Protocol (NTP/SNTP) server, you must reset the ONS 15454 clock. After powering down, the date defaults to January 1, 1970, 00:04:15. To reset the clock, see the “Turn Up a Node” chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Configuration Guide. If you are using the TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 cards, the system clock will run for up to three hours. In this case, no action would be required.



Step 1 Connect the office power according to the fuse panel engineering specifications.

Step 2 Measure and cut the cables as needed to reach the ONS 15454 from the fuse panel. Figure 3-34 shows the ONS 15454 power terminals.

Step 3 Dress the power according to local site practice.

Figure 3-34 Cisco ONS 15454 Power Terminals

 

Step 4 Remove or loosen the #8 power terminal screws on the ONS 15454. To avoid confusion, label the cables connected to the BAT1/RET1 (A) power terminals as 1 and the cables connected to the BAT2/RET2 (B) power terminals as 2.


Note Use only pressure terminal connectors, such as ring and fork types, when terminating the battery, battery return, and frame ground conductors.



Caution Before you make any crimp connections, coat all bare conductors (battery, battery return, and frame ground) with an appropriate antioxidant compound. Bring all unplated connectors, braided strap, and bus bars to a bright finish, then coat with an antioxidant before you connect them. You do not need to prepare tinned, solder-plated, or silver-plated connectors and other plated connection surfaces, but always keep them clean and free of contaminants.


Caution When terminating power, return, and frame ground, do not use soldering lug, screwless (push-in) connectors, quick-connect, or other friction-fit connectors.

Step 5 Strip 1/2 inch (12.7 mm) of insulation from all power cables that you will use.

Step 6 Crimp the lugs onto the ends of all power leads.


Note When terminating battery and battery return connections as shown in Figure 3-34, follow a torque specification of 10 in-lb.


Step 7 Terminate the return 1 lead to the RET1 backplane terminal. Use oxidation-prevention grease to keep the connections noncorrosive.

Step 8 Terminate the negative 1 lead to the negative BAT1 backplane power terminal. Use oxidation prevention grease to keep connections noncorrosive.

Step 9 If you use redundant power leads, terminate the return 2 lead to the positive RET2 terminal on the ONS 15454. Terminate the negative 2 lead to the negative BAT2 terminal on the ONS 15454. Use oxidation-preventative grease to keep connections noncorrosive.


Note The configured ONS 15454 shelf can work with a single power line since the ONS 15454 power configuration offers redundancy. When using the 15454-FTA3 fan-tray, if the ONS15454 shelf is powered by a single power line, the BAT-FAIL alarm appears, the fans run at a maximum speed, and the system does not comply with NEBS GR-63 Issue 3 and GR-1089 Issue 4 and 5 requirements. In order to meet the above mentioned NEBS requirements, the ONS 15454 shelf must be powered by both the DC power lines.


Step 10 Route the cables out below the power terminals using the plastic cable clamp, as shown in Figure 3-34.

3.8 Fan-Tray Assembly

The fan-tray assembly is located at the bottom of the ONS 15454 shelf. The fan-tray is a removable drawer that holds fans and fan-control circuitry for the ONS 15454. The front door can be left in place or removed before installing the fan-tray assembly. After you install the fan-tray, you should only need to access it if a fan failure occurs or if you need to replace or clean the fan-tray air filter. Refer to the “Maintain the Node” chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Configuration Guide to clean and replace the fan-tray assembly.

The front of the fan-tray assembly has an LCD screen that provides slot- and port-level information for all card slots, including the number of Critical, Major, and Minor alarms.

The fan-tray assembly features an air filter at the bottom of the tray that you can install and remove by hand. Remove and visually inspect this filter every 30 days and keep spare filters in stock. Refer to the “Maintain the Node” chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Configuration Guide for information about cleaning and maintaining the fan-tray air filter. Figure 3-35 shows the position of the ONS 15454 ETSI fan-tray assembly. (The fan-tray assembly on the ONS 15454 ANSI is located in a similar position.)


Caution Do not operate an ONS 15454 without the mandatory fan-tray air filter.


Caution Fan-tray assembly 15454E-CC-FTA (ETSI shelf)/15454-CC-FTA (ANSI shelf) is required when any of the following cards are used in an ONS 15454 DWDM application: ADM-10G, GE_XP, 10GE_XP, GE_XPE, 10GE_XPE, ML-MR-10, and CE-MR-10.


Caution The 15454-FTA3-T fan-tray assembly can only be installed in ONS 15454 Release 3.1 and later shelf assemblies (15454-SA-ANSI, P/N: 800-19857; 15454-SA-HD, P/N: 800-24848). The fan-tray assembly includes a pin that prevents it from being installed in ONS 15454 shelf assemblies released before ONS 15454 Release 3.1 (15454-SA-NEBS3E, 15454-SA-NEBS3, and 15454-SA-R1). Equipment damage can result from attempting to install the 15454-FTA3 in an incompatible shelf.


Note 15454-CC-FTA is compatible with Software Release 2.2.2 and greater and shelf assemblies 15454-SA-HD and 15454-SA-ANSI. 15454E-CC-FTA is compatible with Software Release 4.0 and greater and shelf 15454-SA-ETSI.



Note Fan-tray assembly 15454E-CC-FTA (ETSI shelf)/15454-CC-FTA (ANSI shelf) is required when the 80-WXC-C card is placed near MXP or TXP units.

Note The 15454-M2-FTA and 15454-M2-FTA2 are installed in the ONS 15454-M2 shelf assembly. For information on the ONS 15454 M2 fan-tray assembly, see the “Fan-Tray Assembly” section.

The 15454-M6-FTA and 15454-M6-FTA2 are installed in the ONS 15454-M6 shelf assembly.
For information on the ONS 15454 M6 fan-tray assembly, see the “Fan-Tray Assembly” section.


3.8.2 Fan Speed

Fan speed is controlled by the TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 card’s temperature sensors. The sensors measure the input air temperature at the fan-tray assembly. Fan speed options are low, medium, and high. If the TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 card fails, the fans automatically shift to high speed. The temperature measured by the TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 sensors appears on the LCD screen.

3.8.3 Fan Failure

If one or more fans fail on the fan-tray assembly, replace the entire assembly. You cannot replace individual fans. The red Fan Fail LED on the front of the fan-tray illuminates when one or more fans fail. The red Fan Fail LED clears after you install a working fan-tray.


Caution As with the FTA3, the 15454E-CC-FTA (for ETSI) and 15454-CC-FTA (for ANSI) Fan Fail LED on the front of the fan-tray assembly illuminates when one or more fans fail to indicate that a fan-tray assembly or AIP replacement is required. But the Fan Fail LED on the 15454E-CC-FTA and 15454-CC-FTA will also illuminate when only one power source is connected to the chassis, and or any fuse blows. In such conditions, the Fan Alarm is triggered and the fans run at maximum speed.

3.8.4 Air Filter

The ONS 15454 contains a reusable air filter (for ANSI: 15454-FTF2; for ETSI: 15454E-ETSI-FTF) that is installed either below the fan-tray assembly or, for the ONS 15454 ANSI, in the optional external filter brackets.

The reusable filter is made of a gray, open-cell, polyurethane foam that is specially coated to provide fire and fungi resistance. All versions of the ONS 15454 can use the reusable air filter. Spare filters should be kept in stock. Inspect the air filter every 30 days, and clean the filter every three to six months. Replace the air filter every two to three years. Avoid cleaning the air filter with harsh cleaning agents or solvents.

Earlier versions of the ONS 15454 ANSI shelf used a disposable air filter that is installed beneath the fan-tray assembly only. However, the reusable air filter is backward compatible.

Caution Do not operate an ONS 15454 without a fan-tray air filter. A fan-tray air filter is mandatory, except for ONS 15454 ANSI applications in an outside plant cabinet.


Caution You must place the edge of the air filter flush against the front of the fan-tray assembly compartment when installing the fan-tray on top of the filter. Failure to do so could result in damage to the filter, the fan-tray, or both.


Caution Do not force a fan-tray assembly into place. Doing so can damage the connectors on the fan-tray and/or the connectors on the back panel of the shelf.


Note 15454-CC-FTA is compatible with Software Release 2.2.2 and greater and shelf assemblies 15454-SA-HD and 15454-SA-ANSI. 15454E-CC-FTA is compatible with Software Release 4.0 and greater and shelf 15454-SA-ETSI.



Caution If you install the air filter below 15454E-CC-FTA or 15454-CC-FTA, only filters with part numbers 700-23193-01 and 700-23194-01 can be used in this configuration.


Note Error messages appear on the TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 card, the fan-tray LED, and in Cisco Transport Controller (CTC) when the fan-tray assembly is removed from the shelf or when one fan is not working.



Note If you are installing the ONS 15454 in an outside plant cabinet, remove the air filter to provide maximum cooling capabilities and to comply with Telcordia GR-487-CORE.



Note To install the fan-tray assembly, it is not necessary to move any of the fiber-storage facilities.



Note If the fan-tray assembly is removed from the shelf, wait for at least 5 seconds before plugging it back into the shelf. In the event the LCD display in the fan-tray assembly appears blank, remove the unit from the shelf, wait for at least 5 seconds and reinsert the unit into the shelf.



Step 1 Install the air filter. The air filter can be installed internally between the fan-tray and shelf, or externally by mounting the air filter bracket on the bottom of the shelf. Slide the air filter into the bracket.


Caution Although the air filter can work with older fan-trays if it is installed with either side facing up, Cisco recommends that you install it with the metal bracing facing up to preserve the surface of the filter. You must install the air filter with the metal bracing facing up with 15454E-CC-FTA or 15454-CC-FTA.

Step 2 Install the fan-tray assembly. Figure 3-36 shows the fan-tray assembly location on the ONS 15454 ETSI. Figure 3-37 shows the fan-tray assembly location on the ONS 15454 ANSI.

  • For the ONS 15454 ETSI shelf, press and hold the locks on the outer edges as you slide the fan-tray assembly into the shelf.
  • For the ONS 15454 ANSI shelf, press and hold the locks on the outer edges as you slide the fan-tray assembly into the shelf.

The electrical plug at the rear of the tray should plug into the corresponding receptacle on the assembly.


Caution Do not force a fan-tray assembly into place. This can damage the connectors on the fan-tray assembly and/or the connectors on the back panel of the shelf.

Figure 3-36 Installing the Fan-Tray Assembly on the ONS 15454 ETSI

 

Figure 3-37 Installing the Fan-Tray Assembly on the ONS 15454 ANSI

 

Step 3 To verify that the tray has plugged into the assembly, look at the fan-tray and listen to determine that the fans are running.

Step 4 If you want to install an alarm expansion panel on the ONS 15454 ANSI shelf, continue with the G9 Install the Alarm Expansion Panel (ANSI Only). Otherwise, continue with the ONS 15454 ANSI Alarm, Timing, LAN, and Craft Pin Connections.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.


 

3.9 ONS 15454 ANSI Alarm Expansion Panel

The optional ONS 15454 ANSI alarm expansion panel (AEP) can be used with the AIC-I card to provide an additional 48 dry alarm contacts for the ONS 15454 ANSI: 32 inputs and 16 outputs. The AEP is a printed circuit board assembly that is installed on the backplane. Figure 3-38 shows the AEP board; the left connector is the input connector and the right connector is the output connector.

The AIC-I without an AEP already contains direct alarm contacts. These direct AIC-I alarm contacts are routed through the backplane to wire-wrap pins accessible from the back of the shelf. If you install an AEP, you cannot use the alarm contacts on the wire-wrap pins. For more information about the AIC-I, see the “Install the Control Cards” chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Configuration Guide .

Figure 3-38 AEP Printed Circuit Board Assembly

 

Figure 3-39 shows the AEP block diagram.

Figure 3-39 AEP Block Diagram

 

Each AEP alarm input port has a provisionable label and severity. The alarm inputs have optocoupler isolation. They have one common 32-VDC output and a maximum of 2 mA per input. Each opto-metal oxide semiconductor (MOS) alarm output can operate by definable alarm condition, a maximum open circuit voltage of 60 VDC, and a maximum current of 100 mA. See the “External Alarms and Controls” section of the “Install the Control Cards” chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Configuration Guide for further information.

Note The AIC-I card provides direct alarm contacts (external alarm inputs and external control outputs). In the ANSI shelf, these AIC-I alarm contacts are routed through the backplane to wire-wrap pins accessible from the back of the shelf. When you install an AEP, the direct AIC-I alarm contacts cannot be used. Only the AEP alarm contacts can be used.



Step 1 Remove the two backplane screws. Replace the two screws with standoffs. Insert the longer standoff on the left, and the shorter standoff on the right (Figure 3-43).

Figure 3-43 Replace Backplane Screws with Standoffs

 

Step 2 Attach the remaining two standoffs on either side of the backplane (Figure 3-44).

Step 3 Position the AEP board over the standoffs.

Step 6 Continue with the ONS 15454 ANSI Alarm, Timing, LAN, and Craft Pin Connections.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.


 

3.10 ONS 15454 ANSI Alarm, Timing, LAN, and Craft Pin Connections

Pin connections are provided on the ONS 15454 ANSI backplane. For information about ONS 15454 ETSI connections, see the “ONS 15454 ETSI Front Mount Electrical Connection” section.

The ONS 15454 ANSI has a backplane pin field located at the bottom of the backplane. The backplane pin field provides 0.045 inch2 (29 mm2) wire-wrap pins for enabling external alarms, timing input and output, and craft interface terminals. This section describes the backplane pin field and the pin assignments for the field. Figure 3-47 shows the wire-wrap pins on the backplane pin field. Beneath each wire-wrap pin is a frame ground pin. Frame ground pins are labeled FG1, FG2, FG3, etc. Install the ground shield of the cables connected to the backplane to the ground pin that corresponds to the pin field used.


Note The AIC-I requires a shelf running Software R3.4.0 or later. The backplane of the ANSI shelf contains a wire-wrap field with pin assignment according to the layout in Figure 3-46. The shelf might be an existing shelf that has been upgraded to Software R3.4 or later. In this case, the backplane pin labeling appears as indicated in Figure 3-47, but you must use the pin assignments provided by the AIC-I card as shown in Figure 3-46.

3.10.1 Alarm Contact Connections

The alarm pin field supports up to 17 alarm contacts, including four audible alarms, four visual alarms, one alarm cutoff (ACO), and four user-definable alarm input and output contacts.

Audible alarm contacts are in the LOCAL ALARM AUD pin field and visual contacts are in the LOCAL ALARM VIS pin field. Both of these alarms are in the LOCAL ALARMS category. User-definable contacts are in the ENVIR ALARM IN (external alarm) and ENVIR ALARM OUT (external control) pin fields. These alarms are in the ENVIR ALARMS category; you must have the AIC-I card installed to use the ENVIR ALARMS. Alarm contacts are Normally Open (N/O), meaning that the system closes the alarm contacts when the corresponding alarm conditions are present. Each alarm contact consists of two wire-wrap pins on the shelf backplane. Visual and audible alarm contacts are classified as Critical, Major, Minor, and Remote. Figure 3-46 and Figure 3-47 show alarm pin assignments.

Visual and audible alarms are typically wired to trigger an alarm light or bell at a central alarm collection point when the corresponding contacts are closed. You can use the ACO pins to activate a remote ACO for audible alarms. You can also activate the ACO function by pressing the ACO button on the TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 card faceplate. The ACO function clears all audible alarm indications. After clearing the audible alarm indication, the alarm is still present and viewable in the Alarms tab in CTC.

3.10.2 Timing Connections

The ONS 15454 ANSI backplane supports two building integrated timing supply (BITS) clock pin fields. The first four BITS pins, rows 3 and 4, support output and input from the first external timing device. The last four BITS pins, rows 1 and 2, perform the identical functions for the second external timing device. Table 3-7 lists the pin assignments for the BITS timing pin fields.


Note For timing connection, use 100-ohm shielded BITS clock cable pair #22 or #24 AWG (0.51 mm² [0.020 inch] or 0.64 mm² [0.0252 inch]), twisted-pair T1-type.

3.10.3 LAN Connections

Use the LAN pins on the ONS 15454 ANSI backplane to connect the ONS 15454 ANSI to a workstation or Ethernet LAN, or to a LAN modem for remote access to the node. You can also use the LAN port on the TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 faceplate to connect a workstation or to connect the ONS 15454 ANSI to the network. Table 3-8 shows the LAN pin assignments.

Before you can connect an ONS 15454 ANSI to other ONS 15454 ANSI shelves or to a LAN, you must change the default IP address that is shipped with each ONS 15454 ANSI (192.1.0.2).

Step 1 Using coaxial cable with 1.0/2.3 miniature coax connectors, connect the clock cable to the appropriate connector on the faceplate of the MIC-C/T/P.

Step 2 Gently push the cable with the 1.0/2.3 miniature coax connector down until the cable connector slides into the 1.0/2.3 miniature coax connector on the faceplate with a click.

The MIC-C/T/P provides 1.0/2.3 miniature coax connectors that are used for timing input and output. The top connectors are for “A” (BITS-1) timing, and the bottom connectors are for “B” (BITS-2) timing. In each case, the left connector is the input and the right connector is the output. The input connectors for timing provide a 75-ohm termination. System cables are available that can convert timing clocks from 75 ohms to 100/120 ohms. Table 3-11 shows MIC-C/T/P pin assignments.

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.


Step 9 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

3.12 Multishelf Management

The maximum number of shelves that can be aggregated under a single IP address is 30 shelves. It is recommended to use TCC3 card in the node controller if the number of subtended shelves exceed 12 shelves.

3.12.1 Multishelf LAN Topologies

The following sections describe various multishelf LAN topologies in Cisco ONS 15454 shelves.

3.12.1.1 ONS 15454 Multishelf Node and Subtending Shelves

When ONS 15454 node is used as node controller, upto 29 shelves can be subtended using four 24-port Cisco Catalyst 3560 switch or two 48-port Cisco Catalyst 3560 switch. Usage of TCC3 card as the node controller is recommended if the number of subtended shelves is more than 12 shelves. This topology supports both the non-secure and secure mode configuration.

3.12.1.2 ONS 15454 Multishelf Node and Subtending Shelves—Upgrade

Scenario 1: When ONS 15454 is connected to MS-ISC-100T card:

When an ONS 15454 node is connected to an MS-ISC-100T card, connect Port 1 of the Cisco Catalyst 3560 switch to Port 8 of the MS-ISC-100T card to upgrade the number of shelves. When you connect Cisco Catalyst 3560 switch to the MS-ISC-100T card, disconnect the shelves subtended to MS-ISC-100T card and re-connect them to Cisco Catalyst 3560 switch. Usage of TCC3 card as the node controller is recommended if the number of subtended shelves is more than 12 shelves. This topology supports both the non-secure and secure mode configuration.

Scenario 2: When ONS 15454 node is connected to Cisco Catalyst 2950 switch:

When an ONS 15454 node is connected to a Cisco Catalyst 2950 switch, subtend the Cisco Catalyst 3560 switch to Cisco Catalyst 2950 switch to upgrade the number of shelves. Assign VLAN ID as VLANint to Port 21 of the Cisco Catalyst 2950 switch and connect to Port 1 of the Cisco Catalyst 3560 switch. This topology supports both the non-secure and secure mode configuration.

3.12.1.3 ONS 15454 Multishelf Node Controller, ONS 15454 M6 and ONS 15454 Subtending Shelves

When an ONS 15454 is used as the node controller, a mix of ONS 15454 and ONS 15454 M6 shelves can be subtended through the Cisco Catalyst 3560 switch connected to the node controller or the MS-ISC-100T card connected to the node controller. In this topology, ONS 15454 M6 shelves can be diasy chained. Usage of TCC3 card as the node controller is recommended if the number of subtended shelves is more than 12 shelves. This topology supports both the non-secure and secure mode configuration.

The ONS 15454 multishelf node controller cannot be converted to the subtended shelf controller using the LCD. Hence, use CTC to perform the conversion.

3.13 Ethernet Adapter Panel

An ethernet adapter panel (EAP) is required in an ANSI or ETSI equipment rack for multishelf configurations. Two EAPs are required in a multishelf configuration, one for each MS-ISC-100T card. Figure 3-59 shows an example of two installed EAPs and the connection between each EAP and a node controller shelf and a subtending shelf.

An EAP cable is used to connect the MS-ISC-100T card ports to the EAP (Figure 3-63). The nine connector ends plug into Ports 0 through 8 of the MS-ISC-100T card, and the multiport connector plugs into the EAP. Ports 0 and 1 on the MS-ISC-100T card are the DCN ports; Ports 2 through 7 are the SSC ports. A cross-over (CAT-5) LAN cable is used to connect the DCN port on the EAP to the front panel of the TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 cards in the subtending shelves.

Figure 3-62 Connecting the EAP to the Node Controller and Subtending Shelf

 

Figure 3-63 EAP Cable

 

3.14 Filler Card

The filler card is designed to occupy empty multiservice and AIC-I slots in the Cisco ONS 15454 (Slots 1 to 6, 9, and 12 to17). The filler card cannot operate in the cross-connect (XC) slots (Slots 8 and 10) or TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 slots (Slots 7 and 11). The filler card is detected by CTC.

When installed, the filler card aids in maintaining proper air flow and EMI requirements.

Figure 3-64 shows the card faceplate. The filler card has no card-level LED indicators.

Figure 3-64 Filler Card Faceplate

 

3.15 Cable Routing and Management

The ONS 15454 cable management facilities include the following:

  • Fiber patch panels
  • A cable-routing channel (behind the fold-down door) that runs the width of the shelf (Figure 3-65)
  • Plastic horseshoe-shaped fiber guides at each side opening of the cable-routing channel that ensure that the proper bend radius is maintained in the fibers (Figure 3-66)

Note You can remove the fiber guide, if necessary, to create a larger opening (if you need to route CAT-5 Ethernet cables out the side, for example). To remove the fiber guide, take out the three screws that anchor it to the side of the shelf.


  • Cable tie-wrap facilities on EIAs that secure cables to the cover panel (ANSI only)
  • Reversible jumper routing fins that enable you to route cables out either side by positioning the fins as desired
  • Jumper slack storage reels (2) on each side panel that reduce the amount of slack in cables that are connected to other devices

Note To remove the jumper slack storage reels, take out the screw in the center of each reel.


  • Optional fiber-storage tray (recommended for DWDM nodes)
  • Optional tie-down bar (ANSI only)

Figure 3-65 shows the cable management facilities that you can access through the fold-down front door, including the cable-routing channel and the jumper routing fins.

Figure 3-65 Managing Cables on the Front Panel

 

3.15.1 Fiber Management

The jumper routing fins are designed to route fiber jumpers out of both sides of the shelf. Slots 1 to 6 exit to the left, and Slots 12 to 17 exit to the right. Figure 3-66 shows fibers routed from cards in the left slots, down through the fins, then exiting out the fiber channel to the left. The maximum capacity of the fiber routing channel depends on the size of the fiber jumpers.

Figure 3-66 Fiber Capacity

 

Table 3-21 provides the maximum capacity of the fiber channel for one side of an ANSI shelf, depending on fiber size and number of Ethernet cables running through that fiber channel.

Determine your fiber size according to the number of cards/ports installed in each side of the shelf. For example, if your port combination requires 36 fibers, 3-mm (0.11-inch) fiber is adequate. If your port combination requires 68 fibers, you must use 2-mm (0.7-inch) or smaller fibers.

3.15.2 Fiber Management Using the Patch-Panel Trays

The optional patch-panel trays manage the connections between multiplexer/demultiplexer and TXP cards by splitting multiple fiber push-on (MPO) cables into single fiber connections (LC cables). The patch-panel tray consists of a metal shelf, a pull-out drawer, a drop-in patch-panel module, and various cable routing mechanisms.

3.15.2.1 Standard and Deep Patch-Panel Trays (32-Channel)

There are two patch-panel trays intended for use with 32-channel cards, the standard tray (1 RU deep) and the deep tray (2 RUs deep). Both the standard patch-panel tray can host up to eight ribbon cables (with eight fibers each) entering the drawer, or 64 cables (with a maximum outer diameter of 2 mm [0.079 in.]). The deep patch-panel has the bulkheads organized in 8 packs, each housing 8 LC adapters, which allows for more room for internal fiber routing as well as more clearance for ingress and egress of the cables. The deep patch-panel comes with the MPO-LC cables preinstalled.

Because the standard and deep patch-panel tray can each host 64 connections, hub and ROADM nodes will typically require two standard patch-panel modules each, and other DWDM nodes might require one. (Only one standard or deep patch-panel tray is necessary for terminal nodes.) The module fits 19- and 23-inch (482.6-mm and 584.2-mm) ANSI racks and 600 mm (23.6 inch) x 300 mm (11.8 inch) ETSI racks, using reversible brackets.

Figure 3-67 shows a partially fibered standard patch-panel tray.

Figure 3-68 shows a partially fibered deep patch-panel tray.

Figure 3-68 Deep Patch-Panel Tray

 

Figure 3-69 shows the label on the patch panel that identifies the wavelength for each port.

Figure 3-69 Patch-Panel Port Wavelength

 

3.15.2.2 40-Channel Patch-Panel Tray

The 40-channel patch panel tray is 2 RUs deep and comes preinstalled with MPO-LC cables. The 40-channel patch-panel tray can host up to 10 ribbon cables (with eight fibers each), for a total of 80 connections, and is used with expanded ROADM, terminal, hub, and mesh nodes. Expanded hub and ROADM nodes will typically require two 40-channel patch-panel modules each; terminal nodes require one 40-channel patch-panel tray; and one 40-channel patch-panel tray is needed for mesh nodes for each direction.

The module fits 19- and 23-inch (482.6-mm and 584.2-mm) ANSI racks and 600 mm (23.6 inch) x 300 mm (11.8 inch) ETSI racks, using reversible brackets.

Figure 3-70 shows a 40-channel patch-panel tray.

Figure 3-71 shows the 40-channel patch-panel ports and corresponding wavelengths.

Figure 3-71 40-Channel (15454-PP-80) Patch-Panel Port Wavelengths

 

3.15.2.3 Mesh Patch-Panel Tray

There are two mesh patch-panel trays, four-degree (PP-MESH-4) and eight-degree (PP-MESH-8), which are intended for use with mesh nodes. Both trays are 2 RUs deep. The four-degree patch panel allows up to 4 sides to be used per mesh node, while the eight-degree patch panel allows up to 8 sides to be used per mesh node. The 4-degree patch-panel tray can host up to 4 MPO-MPO and 4 LC-LC cables, and the 8-degree patch-panel tray can host up to 8 MPO-MPO and 8 LC-LC cables. The module fits 19- and 23-inch (482.6-mm and 584.2-mm) ANSI racks and 600 mm (23.6 inch) x 300 mm (11.8 inch) ETSI racks, using reversible brackets.

Figure 3-72 shows a four-degree patch-panel tray.

3.15.3 Fiber Management Using the Y-Cable Module Tray

The optional Y-cable module tray manages the connections between TXP cards by splitting patchcords into single connections. The patch-panel tray consists of a metal shelf, a pull-out drawer, and up to eight Y-cable modules.

Figure 3-90 shows a fibered Y-cable module tray.

Figure 3-90 Y-Cable Module Tray

 

To ensure diversity of the fiber coming from different cards in the Y-cable scheme, one pair of fibers (e.g. from the active transponder) should come out on the opposite side from the second pair of fibers (e.g. standby transponder), according to local site practice.

3.15.4 Fiber Management Using the Fiber-Storage Tray

Cisco recommends installing at least one fiber-storage tray in multinode racks to facilitate fiber-optic cable management for DWDM applications. This tray is usually used to store slack cable from cables installed between cards within a single node. Refer to Figure 3-56 for typical mounting locations.

Optical fibers without exposed metallic ferrule must be used with all the products and platforms covered by this document (see Figure 3-91 and Figure 3-92). Electrostatic discharge is more easily coupled into the equipment through exposed metallic ferrules near the fiber connectors.

Figure 3-91 Optical Fiber With Exposed Ferrule

Figure 3-93 shows an example of a fiber-management tray with fiber-optic cables routed through it. You can route cables around the cable rounders, entering and exiting from either side, as necessary. Route fibers as necessary for your site configuration.

Figure 3-93 Fiber-Storage Tray

 

3.15.5 Fiber Management Using the Optional ANSI Tie-Down Bar

You can install a 5-inch (127-mm) tie-down bar on the rear of the ANSI chassis. You can use tie-wraps or other site-specific material to bundle the cabling and attach it to the bar so that you can more easily route the cable away from the rack.

Figure 3-94 shows the tie-down bar, the ONS 15454 ANSI, and the rack.
