15454_MRC-12 Card Description

The 15454_MRC-12 multirate card provides up to twelve OC-3/STM-1 ports, twelve OC-12/STM-4 ports, or four OC-48/STM-16 ports using small form-factor pluggables (SFPs), in various combinations of line rates depending on the card slot, port, and cross-connect cards used. (See the "Slot Compatibility by Cross-Connect Card" section and the "Ports and Line Rates" section for more information.) All ports are Telcordia GR-253 compliant. The 15454_MRC-12 card can use the following SFP optics: SR, IR, LR, coarse wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM), and DWDM. See the "Optical Card SFPs and XFPs" section for more information about SFPs.

The ports operate at up to 2488.320 Mbps over a single-mode fiber. The 15454_MRC-12 card has twelve physical connector adapters with two fibers per connector adapter (Tx and Rx). The card supports VT payloads, STS-1 payloads, and concatenated payloads at STS-3c, STS-6c, STS-9c, STS-12c, STS-18c, STS-24c, STS-36c, or STS-48c signal levels. It is fully interoperable with the ONS 15454 G-Series Ethernet cards.

The card supports 1+1 unidirectional and bidirectional facility protection. It also supports 1+1 protection in four-fiber BLSR applications where both span switching and ring switching might occur. You can provision this card as part of a BLSR/MS-SPRing, UPSR/SNCP, or a 1+1 linear configuration.


Note Longer distances are possible in an amplified system using dispersion compensation.

Slot Compatibility by Cross-Connect Card

You can install 15454_MRC-12 cards in Slots 1 through 6 and 12 through 17 with the following cross-connect cards in SONET (ANSI) and SDH (ETSI) applications:

SONET: XCVT, XC10G, or XC-VXC-10G

SDH: XC-VXL-2.5G, XC-VXL-10G, or XC-VXC-10G


Note The 15454_MRC-12 card supports an errorless software-initiated cross-connect card switch when used in a shelf equipped with XC-VXC-10G and TCC2/TCC2P cards.


The maximum bandwidth of the 15454_MRC-12 card is determined by the cross-connect card. Table 1 shows the maximum bandwidth for different cross-connect configurations in an ANSI shelf. Table 2 shows the maximum bandwidth for different cross-connect configurations in an ETSI shelf.

Ports and Line Rates

Each port on the 15454_MRC-12 card can be configured as OC-3/STM-1, OC-12/STM-4, or OC-48/STM-16, depending on the available bandwidth and existing provisioned ports. Based on the cross-connect card and slot limitations shown in Table 1, the following rules apply for various synchronous transport signal (STS) available bandwidths. (Table 3 shows the same information in tabular format.)

STS-12

Port 1 is the only port that is usable as an OC-12/STM-4. If Port 1 is used as an OC-12/STM-4, all other ports are disabled.

Ports 1, 4, 7, and 10 are the only ports usable as OC-3/STM-1. If any of these ports is used as an OC-3/STM-1, Ports 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 11, and 12 are disabled.

STS-48

Port 1 is the only port usable as an OC-48. If Port 1 is used as an OC-48, all other ports are disabled.

Ports 1, 4, 7, and 10 are the only ports usable as OC-12/STM-4.

If Port 4 is used as an OC-12/STM-4, Ports 2 and 3 are disabled.

If Port 7 is used as an OC-12/STM-4, Ports 5, 6, and 8 are disabled.

If Port 10 is used as an OC-12/STM-4, Ports 9, 11, and 12 are disabled.

Any port can be used as an OC-3/STM-1 as long as all of the above rules are followed.

STS-192

Ports 1, 4, 7, and 10 are the only ports usable as OC-48.

If Port 4 is used as an OC-48, Ports 2 and 3 are disabled.

If Port 7 is used as an OC-48, Ports 5, 6, and 8 are disabled.

If Port 10 is used as an OC-48, Ports 9, 11, and 12 are disabled.

If Port 4 is used as an OC-12/STM-4, Ports 2 and 3 can be used as an OC-12/STM-4 or OC-3/STM-1.

If Port 7 is used as an OC-12/STM-4, Ports 5, 6, and 8 can be used as an OC-12/STM-4 or OC-3/STM-1.

If Port 10 is as used as an OC-12/STM-4, Ports 9, 11, and 12 can be used as an OC-12/STM-4 or OC-3/STM-1.

If Port 4 is used as an OC-3/STM-1, Ports 2 and 3 can be used as an OC-3/STM-1 or OC-12/STM-4.

If Port 7 is used as an OC-3/STM-1, Ports 5, 6, and 8 can be used as an OC-3/STM-1 or OC-12/STM-4.

If Port 10 is used as an OC-3/STM-1, Ports 9, 11, and 12 can be used as an OC-3/STM-1 or OC-12/STM-4.

Any port can be used as an OC-12/STM-4 or OC-3/STM-1, as long as all of the above rules are followed.

Table 3 shows the 15454_MRC-12 port availability and OC-N line rate for each port, based on total available bandwidth. To use the table, go to the rows for the bandwidth that you have available, as determined in Table 1. Each row indicates what line rate can be provisioned for each port (identified in the MCR-12 Port Number row). The Ports Used column shows the total number of ports that can be used with each bandwidth scheme.

1 If the MRC-12 card is initially populated with OC-3/12 on all its 12 ports, you can later add OC-48 SFPs on that card from top port to bottom port or from bottom port to top port. The maximum available bandwidth usage is different for these two cases.


Table 4 shows the 15454_MRC-12 port availability and STM-N line rate for each port, based on total available bandwidth. To use the table, go to the rows for the bandwidth that you have available, as determined in Table 2. Each row indicates what line rate can be provisioned for each port (identified in the MCR-12 Port Number row). The Ports Used column shows the total number of ports that can be used with each bandwidth scheme.

1 If the MRC-12 card is initially populated with STM-1/STM-4 on all its 12 ports, you can later add STM-16 SFPs on that card from top port to bottom port or from bottom port to top port. The maximum available bandwidth usage is different for these two cases.


15454_MRC-12 Card-Level Indicators

Table 5 describes the three card-level LEDs on the 15454_MRC-12 card.

Table 5 15454_MRC-12 Card-Level Indicators  

Card-Level LED
Description

Red FAIL LED

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

ACT/STBY LED

Green (Active)

Amber (Standby)

If the ACT/STBY LED is green, the card is operational and ready to carry traffic. If the ACT/STBY LED is amber, the card is operational and in standby (protect) mode or is part of an active ring switch (BLSR).

Amber SF LED

The amber SF LED indicates a signal failure or condition such as LOS, LOF, or high BERs on one or more of the card's ports. The amber SF LED is also on if the transmit and receive fibers are incorrectly connected. If the fibers are properly connected and the link is working, the light turns off.


15454_MRC-12 Port-Level Indicators

Each port has a port-level LED. The LED flashes green if the port is transmitting or receiving a signal, and it flashes red when there is a signal failure.

You can also find the status of the 15454_MRC-12 card ports by using the LCD screen on the ONS 15454 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 the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide or Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide for a complete description of the alarm messages.

Optical Card SFPs and XFPs

The ONS 15454 and ONS 15454 SDH optical cards use industry-standard SFPs and XFP modular receptacles.

Currently, the only optical cards that use SFPs and XFPs are the 15454_MRC-12, OC192SR1/STM64IO Short Reach, and OC192/STM64 Any Reach cards.

For all optical cards, the type of SFP or XFP plugged into the card is displayed in CTC and TL1. Cisco offers SFPs and XFPs as separate orderable products.

Compatibility by Card

Table 6 lists the compatible SFPs for the 15454_MRC-12 card.


Caution Only use SFPs and XFPs certified for use in Cisco Optical Networking Systems (ONSs). The qualified Cisco SFP pluggable module's top assembly numbers (TANs) are provided in Table 6.

Install the 15454_MRC-12 Card

Use this section if you are installing the 15454_MRC-12 card for the first time. After you become familiar with ONS 15454 card installation and boot up, use this section as a reference. For more information, see the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide or the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.


Warning During this procedure, wear grounding wrist straps to avoid ESD damage to the card. Do not directly touch the backplane with your hand or any metal tool, or you could shock yourself. Statement 94

Warning Class I (21 CFR 1040.10 and 1040.11) and Class 1M (IEC 60825-1 2001-01) laser products. Statement 291

Warning Invisible laser radiation may be emitted from the end of the unterminated fiber cable or connector. Do not view directly with optical instruments. Viewing the laser output with certain optical instruments (for example, eye loupes, magnifiers, and microscopes) within a distance of 100 mm may pose an eye hazard. Statement 1056

Caution Always use the supplied ESD wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454 SDH. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the lower-right outside edge of the shelf assembly.


Note To simplify subnetwork connection protection (SNCP) to multiplex section-shared protection ring (MS-SPRing) conversion and node addition, install optical cards according to an east (Slots 12 and 13) and west (Slots 5 and 6) configuration. This configuration is not mandatory.



Note If you install a card incorrectly, the FAIL LED flashes continuously.



Note If you are installing optical cards, Cisco recommends that you install these before you install electrical cards, as applicable.



Note To simplify unidirectional path switched ring (UPSR) to bidirectional line switched ring (BLSR) conversion and node addition, install optical cards according to a high-speed east (Slots 12 and 13) and west (Slots 5 and 6) configuration. This configuration is not mandatory.



Note During the boot process, an Out-of-Service (OOS) OC-N/STM-N port will output a Line Alarm Indication Signal (AIS-L) to any In-Service (IS) far-end receivers. See the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide or Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide for further information about the AIS-L condition.



Note Install higher-capacity cards first; for example, install an OC-192/STM-64 card before installing an OC-48/STM-12 card. Let each card completely boot before installing the next card.


15454_MRC-12 cards have electrical plugs that plug into electrical connectors on the shelf assembly backplane. When the ejectors are fully closed, the card plugs into the shelf assembly backplane. Figure 2 shows general card installation in an ONS 15454 SONET shelf. (Installation is similar in an ONS 15454 SDH shelf.)

Figure 2 Installing an ONS 15454 Card in a SONET Shelf


Caution Because all other cards boot from the active TCC2/TCC2P card, at least one TCC2/TCC2P card must be installed in order to boot the 15454_MRC-12 card. Cisco strongly recommends that you always install and boot two TCC2/TCC2P cards before running any live traffic over an ONS 15454 node.


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

Step 2 Open the card latches/ejectors.

Step 3 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.

Step 4 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 backplane. Ensure that you cannot insert the card any further.


Step 5 Verify the LED activity:

The red FAIL LED turns on for 10 to 15 seconds.

The red FAIL LED blinks for 30 to 40 seconds.

All LEDs blink once and turn off for 1 to 5 seconds.

The ACT or ACT/STBY LED turns on. The SF LED can persist until all card ports connect to their far end counterparts and a signal is present.


Note The booting OC-N/STM-N card will send an AIS-L to the far-end receiver as long as it is Locked-enabled, disabled.


Step 6 If the card does not boot up properly, or the LED activity does not mimic Step 5, check the following:

If the red FAIL LED does not turn on, check the power.

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

If the red FAIL LED is on continuously or the LEDs behave erratically, the card is not installed properly. Remove the card and repeat Steps 1 to 5.

Step 7 When you have displayed Cisco Transport Controller (CTC) on your workstation, verify that the card appears in the correct slot on the CTC node view. See the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide for CTC information and provisioning instructions.
