DS3iN-12 Card

The twelve-port ONS 15454 SDH DS3iN-12 card provides twelve ITU-T G.703, GR-499, ITU-T G.704 compliant DS-3 ports per card. Each port operates at 44.736 MBits/s (Mbps) over a 75 ohms coaxial cable (with FMEC-E3/DS3). The DS3iN-12 can detect several different errored logic bits within a DS-3 frame. This function lets the ONS 15454 SDH identify a degrading DS-3 facility caused by upstream electronics (DS-3 Framer). In addition, DS3 frame format auto detection and J1 path trace are supported. By monitoring additional overhead in the DS-3 frame, subtle network degradations can be detected. Figure 1 shows the DS3iN-12 faceplate and Figure 2 shows a block diagram of the card.

Figure 1 DS3iN-12 faceplate

The following list summarizes the DS3iN-12 card features:

Provisionable framing format M23, C-bit or unframed

Auto recognition and provisioning of incoming framing

VC-3 payload mapping as per ITU-T G.707

Idle signal ("1100") monitoring as per GR-499

P-bit monitoring

C-bit parity monitoring

X-bit monitoring

M-bit monitoring

F-bit monitoring

Far-end block errors (FEBE) monitoring

Far-end alarm and control (FEAC) status and loop code detection

Path trace byte support with TIM-P alarm generation

You can install the DS3iN-12 card in any multispeed or high-speed card slot. Each DS3iN-12 port features DSX-level outputs supporting distances up to 450 feet. With FMEC-E3/DS3 the card supports 1.0/2.3 Miniature Coax nonbalanced connectors.

The DS3iN-12 can operate as the protect card in a 1:N (N<5) DS-3 protection group. It has circuitry that allows it to protect up to five working DS3iN-12 cards.


Note The lowest level cross-connect is STM-1. Lower level signals, such as E-1, DS-3, or E-3, can be dropped. This may leave part of the bandwidth unused.


DS3iN-12 Card-Level Indicators

The DS3iN-12 card faceplate has three LEDs.

Table 1 DS3iN-12 Card-Level Indicators  

Card-Level LEDs
Description

Red FAIL LED

The red FAIL LED indicates the card's processor is not ready. This LED is lit during Reset. The FAIL LED flashes during the boot process. Replace the card if the red FAIL LED persists.

ACT/STBY LED

Green (Active)

Yellow (Standby)

When the ACTV/STBY LED is green, the DS3iN-12 card is operational and ready to carry traffic. When the ACTV/STBY LED is yellow, the DS3iN-12 card is operational and in standby (protect) mode.

Yellow SF LED

The yellow SF LED indicates a signal failure or condition such as LOS or LOF on one or more of the card's ports.


DS3iN-12 Port-Level Indicators

You can find the status of the DS3iN-12 card ports using the LCD screen on the ONS 15454 SDH fan tray assembly. Use the LCD to view the status of any port or card slot; the screen displays the number and severity of alarms for a given port or slot. Refer to Chapter 1, "Alarm Troubleshooting," of the "Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting and Maintenance Guide, R3.3" for a complete description of the alarm messages.

Installation Procedures

Use this section if you are installing or removing the DS3iN-12 card for the first time. After you become familiar with ONS 15454 SDH card installation and boot up, use this section as a reference.


Caution Always use the supplied electrostatic discharge (ESD) wristband when working with an ONS 15454 SDH. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the lower right outside edge of the shelf assembly and ensure the shelf assembly is properly grounded.


Caution Hazardous voltage or energy may be present on the backplane when the system is operating. Use caution when servicing.


Step 1 Open the card ejectors.

Step 2 Carefully insert the card into the guide rails of the desired slot (Figure 3).

Step 3 Push the card into the connector on the back plane by closing the ejectors.

Card Turn Up

Follow the steps in this section to verify card turn up. If one or more of the Cisco Transport Controller (CTC) software screen conditions according to "Verify Successful Turn Up of the DS3iN-12 Card" section are not met, re-install the card. Replace the unit if the faulty state persists.

Verify Successful Turn Up of the DS3iN-12 Card


Step 1 Verify that power is applied to the shelf assembly.

Step 2 Verify that the DS3iN-12 card has been installed in the correct slot.

Step 3 Verify that the card appears in the correct slot on the CTC software screen.

Step 4 Verify that the card is white on the CTC software screen.

Step 5 Verify that the card is shown in Inventory on the CTC software screen.


Removal Procedures

Use this section if you are installing or removing the DS3iN-12 card for the first time. After you become familiar with ONS 15454 SDH card installation and boot up, use this section as a reference.


Caution Always use the supplied electrostatic discharge (ESD) wristband when working with an ONS 15454 SDH. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the lower right outside edge of the shelf assembly and ensure the shelf assembly is properly grounded.


Caution Hazardous voltage or energy may be present on the backplane when the system is operating. Use caution when servicing.


Note Traffic can be interrupted if you pull an active card from the ONS 15454 SDH. Use caution when replacing cards and verify that only inactive or standby cards are being replaced. If an active card needs to be replaced, follow the procedure to switch the electrical card to standby mode before you pull the card from the node.


Reset an Electrical Card (E1-N-14, DS3iN-12, or E3-12)


Note An electrical card reset can cause a linear 1:1 or 1:N protection switch or an MSSPRing protection switch.


The cards should be replaced when the red FAIL LED appears.

Take these precautions before performing an electical card reset to avoid causing a linear 1:1, 1:N or MSSPRing protection switch:


Step 1 Ensure that the working span is active on the local and remote nodes.

Step 2 Ensure that the working span is carrying error-free traffic without SF alarms.

Step 3 Place a lockout on the protection span before initiating an electrical card reset. In an MSSPRing, place a lockout on the East and West cards of the nodes adjacent to the electrical card switch node; for example, to switch the electrical card on Node B, place the lockout on the West card of Node A and on the East card of Node C. No lockout is necessary on Node B. Before the lockout is set, verify that the MSSPRing is not switched. Traffic can be lost if a lockout is set when the MSSPRing is switched, .

<------East [Node A] West------East [Node B] West------East [Node C] West------>

In a 1:1 protection scheme, place a lockout on the protect card and verify that traffic is traveling over the working span before setting the lockout.


Replace an In-Service Electrical Card (E1-N-14, DS3iN-12, or E3-12)


Step 1 Determine which electical card is active. The active card ACT/STBY LED is green. The standby card ACT/STBY LED is yellow.


Note You can determine whether the card is in active mode or standby mode by viewing it in the CTC software and positioning the cursor over the card graphic to display the status.


Step 2 Switch the active card to standby:

a. In the node view, select the Maintenance > E1-N-14, DS3iN-12 and E3-12 tabs.

b. From the menu, choose Switch.

c. Click Yes on the Confirm Switch dialog box.


Note A minor alarm appears on the manually-switched slot. After the active electrical card goes into standby, the original standby slot becomes active. This causes the former standby card ACT/STBY LED to become green.


Step 3 Pull the new standby card from the ONS 15454 SDH.

Step 4 Insert the replacement card into the empty slot. The replacement card boots up and becomes ready for service after approximately one minute. Release the protection lockout.
