Note The ONS 15454 SDH is a flexible metro optical transport system supporting a wide variety of applications. The power consumption of the shelf assembly varies depending upon shelf configuration. Design your power distribution network based on your maximum ONS 15454 SDH system power draw, or the ONS 15454 SDH's maximum rated shelf power draw.

If you select to design your power plant to your maximum planned ONS 15454 SDH system configuration, the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting and Maintenance Guide, R3.4 lists the power consumption for each card that can be used to determine your maximum ONS 15454 SDH system power draw. The general guideline for fuse selection is 20% above the maximum calculated system power draw.

If you design your power system to the ONS 15454 SDH's maximum rated shelf power draw, Cisco recommends that you select a power distribution system supporting a minimum capacity of 30A for each A and B power feeder on each ONS 15454 SDH shelf assembly. Feeder lines should be fused at 30A. This recommendation is based on the shelf assembly's current rated maximum power draw of 30A at -48 VDC. The maximum power draw configuration on the ONS 15454 SDH, based on the hardware available with Release 3.4, requires 30A at -48 VDC.


3.2 Electrical Card Protection

The ONS 15454 SDH provides a variety of electrical card protection methods. This section describes the protection options. Figure 3-1 shows a 1:1 protection scheme and Figure 3-2 shows a 1:N protection scheme.

3.2.1 1:0 Protection

The term 1:0 protection is sometimes used for an unprotected configuration.

3.2.2 1:1 Protection

In 1:1 protection, a working card is paired with a protect card of the same type. If the working card fails, the traffic from the working card switches to the protect card.When the failure on the working card is resolved, traffic automatically reverts to the working card. Figure 3-1 shows the ONS 15454 SDH in a 1:1 protection configuration; Slot 1 is protecting Slot 2, Slot 3 is protecting Slot 4, Slot 17 is protecting Slot 16, and Slot 15 is protecting Slot 14. Each working card is paired with a protect card. Slots 6 and 12 are not used for electrical cards. They have no corresponding FMEC slots.

Figure 3-1 ONS 15454 SDH cards in a 1:1 protection configuration

3.2.3 1:N Protection

1:N protection allows a single card to protect several working cards. An E1-N-14 card protects up to four E1-N-14 cards, and a DS3i-N-12 card protects up to four DS3i-N-12 cards.

Currently, 1:N protection operates only at the E-1 and DS-3 levels. The 1:N protect cards must match the levels of their working cards. For example, an E1-N-14 protects only E1-N-14 cards, and a DS3i-N-12 protects only DS3i-N-12 cards.

The physical E-1 or DS-3 ports on the ONS 15454 SDH FMEC cards use the working card until the working card fails. When the node detects this failure, the protection card takes over the physical E-1 or DS-3 electrical interfaces through the relays and signal bridging on the backplane. Figure 3-2 shows the ONS 15454 SDH in a 1:N protection configuration. Each side of the shelf assembly has only one card protecting all of the cards on that side.

Figure 3-2 ONS 15454 SDH cards in a 1:N protection configuration

3.2.3.1 Revertive Switching

1:N protection supports revertive switching. Revertive switching sends the electrical interfaces back to the original working card after the card comes back online. Detecting an active working card triggers the reversion process. There is a variable time period for the lag between detection and reversion, called the revertive delay, which you can set using Cisco Transport Controller (CTC). For instructions, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Installation and Operations Guide, R3.4. All cards in a protection group share the same reversion settings. 1:N protection groups default to automatic reversion.

3.2.3.2 1:N Protection Guidelines

Several rules apply to 1:N protection groups in the ONS 15454 SDH:

Working and protect card groups must reside in the same card bank (A or B).

The 1:N protect card must reside in Slot 3 for side A and Slot 15 for side B.

Working cards might sit on either or both sides of the protect card.

The ONS 15454 SDH supports 1:N equipment protection for all add/drop multiplexer configurations (ring, linear, and terminal), as specified by ITU-T G.841.

The ONS 15454 SDH automatically detects and identifies a 1:N protection card when the card is installed in Slot 3 or Slot 15. However, the slot containing the 1:N card in a protection group must be manually provisioned as a protect slot because by default, all cards are working cards.

3.2.4 Electrical Card Protection and the FMECs


Note For EIA descriptions and installation, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Installation and Operations Guide, R3.4.



Note When a protection switch moves traffic from the DS3i-N-12 working/active card to the DS3i-N-12 protect/standby card, ports on the new active/standby card cannot be taken out of service. Lost traffic can result when a port is taken out of service even if the DS3i-N-12 active/standby card no longer carries traffic.


3.3 Optical Card Protection

The ONS 15454 SDH currently supports 1+1 span protection to create redundancy for optical cards. Optical cards in any two slots can be paired for protection. 1+1 protection pairs a single working card with a single dedicated protect card. If the working card fails, the protect card takes over.

With non-revertive 1+1 protection, when a failure occurs and the signal switches from the working card to the protect card, the signal stays switched to the protect card until it is manually switched back. Revertive 1+1 protection automatically switches the signal back to the working card when the working card comes back online.

3.4 Multiport Card Protection

For multiport cards such as the E1-N-14, the DS3i-N-12, and the OC3 IR 4/STM1 SH 1310, the ports on the protect card support the corresponding ports on the working card. With 1:1 or 1:N protection (electrical cards), the protect card must protect an entire slot. In other words, all the ports on the protect card will be used in the protection scheme.

With 1+1 protection (optical cards), protection can be assigned on a per-port basis. But the working and protect ports cannot be on the same card. In other words, any number of ports can be assigned as protection ports. On a four-port card, for example, you could assign one port as a protection port (protecting the corresponding port on the working card) and leave three ports unprotected. Conversely, you could assign three ports as protection ports and leave one port unprotected.

You create and modify protection schemes using CTC software. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Installation and Operations Guide, R3.4.

3.5 Unprotected Cards (1:0 Protection)

Unprotected cards are not included in a protection scheme; therefore, a card failure or a signal error results in lost data. An unprotected configuration is sometimes called 1:0 protection. Because no bandwidth is reserved for protection, unprotected schemes maximize the available ONS 15454 SDH bandwidth. Figure 3-3 shows the ONS 15454 SDH in an unprotected configuration. All cards are in a working state.

Figure 3-3 ONS 15454 SDH in an unprotected configuration

3.6 Timing Communications and Control-International (TCC-I) Card

The TCC-I performs system initialization, provisioning, alarm reporting, maintenance, diagnostics, IP address detection/resolution, SDH section overhead (SOH) data communications channel (DCC) termination, and system fault detection for the ONS 15454 SDH. The TCC-I also ensures that the system maintains Stratum 3E (G.813) timing requirements. Figure 3-4 shows the TCC-I faceplate and Figure 3-5 shows a block diagram of the card.

Figure 3-4 TCC-I faceplate

Figure 3-5 TCC-I block diagram

3.6.1 TCC-I Functionality

The TCC-I supports multichannel, high-level data link control (HDLC) processing for the DCC. Up to 48 DCCs can be routed over the TCC-I and up to ten DCCs can be terminated at the TCC-I (subject to available optical digital communication channels). The TCC-I selects and processes ten DCCs to facilitate remote system management interfaces.

The TCC-I also originates and terminates a cell bus carried over the module. The cell bus supports links between any two cards in the node, which is essential for peer-to-peer communication. Peer-to-peer communication accelerates protection switching for redundant cards.

The node database, IP address, and system software are stored in TCC-I non-volatile memory, which allows quick recovery in the event of a power or card failure.

The TCC-I performs all system-timing functions for each ONS 15454 SDH. The TCC-I monitors the recovered clocks from each traffic card and two building integrated timing supply (BITS) ports for frequency accuracy. The TCC-I selects a recovered clock, a BITS or an internal Stratum 3E reference as the system-timing reference. You can provision any of the clock inputs as primary or secondary timing sources. A slow-reference tracking loop allows the TCC-I to synchronize with the recovered clock, which provides holdover if the reference is lost.

Install TCC-I cards in Slots 7 and 11 for redundancy. If the active TCC-I fails, traffic switches to the protect TCC-I. All TCC-I 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.

The TCC-I uses a 10Base-T LAN port for user interfaces, led via the backplane to the port accessible on the front of the MIC-C/T/P FMEC.


Note Cisco does not support operation of the ONS 15454 SDH with only one TCC-I card. For full functionality and to safeguard your system, always operate in a redundant configuration.



Note CTC software does not monitor for the presence or absence of FMECs unless the TCC-I card(s) have reached the active/standby state. During transitional states such as power-up or TCC-I reset, CTC ignores the FMEC inventory displayed in node view.



Note When a second TCC-I card is inserted into a node, it synchronizes its software, its backup software, and its database with the active TCC-I. If the software version of the new TCC-I does not match the version on the active TCC-I, the newly inserted TCC-I copies from the active TCC-I, taking about 15 to 20 minutes to complete. If the backup software version on the new TCC-I does not match the version on the active TCC-I, the newly inserted TCC-I copies the backup software from the active TCC-I again, taking about 15 to 20 minutes. Copying the database from the active TCC-I takes about 3 minutes. Depending on the software version and backup version the new TCC-I started with, the entire process can take between 3 and 40 minutes.


3.6.2 TCC-I Card-Level Indicators

The TCC-I faceplate has eight LEDs. The first two LEDs are card-level indicators. These indicators are described in Table 3-6.

Table 3-6 TCC-I Card-Level Indicators  

Card-Level LEDs
Definition

Red FAIL LED

This LED is lit during reset. The FAIL LED flashes during the boot and write process. Replace the unit if the FAIL LED persists.

ACT/STBY LED

Green (Active)

Yellow (Standby)

The ACT/STBY (Active/Standby) LED indicates the TCC-I is active (green) or in standby (yellow) mode. The ACT/STBY LED also provides the timing reference and shelf control. When the TCC-I is writing to the Active or Standby TCC-I, its Active or Standby LED blinks. To avoid memory corruption, do not remove the TCC-I when the Active or Standby LED is blinking.


3.6.3 Network-Level Indicators

The TCC-I faceplate has eight LEDs. Six LEDs are network-level indicators. These indicators are described in Table 3-7.

Table 3-7 TCC-I System-Level Indicators

3.7 Cross Connect XC10G Card

The XC10G card cross connects STM-1, STM-4, STM-16, and STM-64 signal rates. The XC10G provides a maximum of 384 x 384 VC-4 non-blocking cross connections. Any STM-1 on any port can be connected to any other port, meaning that the STM cross-connections are non-blocking.

The XC10G faceplate, cross-connects, and a block diagram are shown in Figure 3-6, Figure 3-7, and Figure 3-8.


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 might leave part of the bandwidth unused.


Figure 3-6 XC10G faceplate

Figure 3-7 XC10G Cross-Connect matrix

Figure 3-8 XC10G block diagram

The XC10G card manages up to 192 bidirectional STM-1 cross-connects. The TCC-I assigns bandwidth to each slot on a per STM-1 basis. The XC10G card works with the TCC-I card to maintain connections and set up cross-connects within the system. The XC10G is required to operate the ONS 15454 SDH. You can establish cross-connect and provisioning information through the Cisco Transport Controller (CTC). The TCC-I establishes the proper internal cross-connect information and sends the setup information to the XC10G cross-connect card.


Note Cisco does not recommend nor support operating the ONS 15454 SDH with only one XC10G card. To safeguard your system, always operate in a redundant configuration.

3.8 Alarm Interface Controller-International Card

The optional Alarm Interface Controller-International (AIC-I) card provides customer-defined alarm I/O, and supports user data and local and express orderwire. It provides 16 customer-defined input contacts and 4 customer-defined input/output contacts. It requires the MIC-A/P for connection to the alarm contacts. Figure 3-9 shows the AIC-I faceplate and a block diagram of the card.

Figure 3-9 AIC-I faceplate and block diagram

3.8.1 AIC-I Card-Level Indicators

The AIC-I card has eight card-level LED indicators, described in Table 3-9.

Table 3-9 AIC-I Card-Level Indicators  

Card-Level LEDs
Description

Red FAIL LED

The red FAIL LED indicates that 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.

Green ACT LED

The green ACT LED indicates that the AIC-I card is provisioned for operation.

Green/red PWR A LED

The PWR A LED is green when a supply voltage within the specified range has been sensed on supply input A. It is red when the input voltage on supply input A is out of range.

Green/red PWR B LED

The PWR B LED is green when a supply voltage within the specified range has been sensed on supply input B. It is red when the input voltage on supply input B is out of range.

Yellow INPUT LED

The INPUT LED is yellow when there is an alarm condition on at least one of the alarm inputs.

Yellow OUTPUT LED

The OUTPUT LED is yellow when there is an alarm condition on at least one of the alarm outputs.

Green RING LED

The green RING LED on the local orderwire (LOW) side is flashing when a call is received on the LOW.

Green RING LED

The green RING LED on the express orderwire (EOW) side is flashing when a call is received on the EOW.


3.8.2 User-Defined Alarms

The AIC-I card provides input/output alarm contact closures. You can define up to sixteen external alarm inputs and four external alarm inputs/outputs (user configurable). The physical connections are made using the MIC-A/P. The alarms are defined using CTC. For instructions, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Installation and Operations Guide, R3.4.

LEDs on the front panel of the AIC-I indicate the status of the alarm lines: one LED representing all the inputs and one LED representing all 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 sixteen input alarm contacts separately. Choices include Alarm on Closure or Alarm on Open, an alarm severity of any level (Critical, Major, Minor, Not Alarmed, Not Reported), and Service Affecting or Non-Service Affecting alarm-service level, and a 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 de-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, as follows:

Local NE alarm severity: A hierarchy of non-reported, non-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.

3.8.3 Orderwire

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

The AIC-I allows simultaneous use of both local (section overhead signal) and express (line overhead channel) orderwire channels on an 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 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 (i.e., 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 SDH facility. The ONS 15454 SDH supports up to four orderwire channel terminations per shelf. This allows linear, single ring, dual ring, and small hub-and-spoke configurations. Keep in mind that orderwire is not protected in ring topologies such as multiplex section-shared protection ring (MS-SPRing) and subnetwork connection protection (SNCP).


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

The ONS 15454 SDH 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.


Note The OC3 IR 4/STM1 SH 1310 card does not support the EOW channel.


The AIC-I supports selective dual tone multifrequency (DTMF) dialing for telephony connectivity which causes specific or all ONS 15454 SDH AIC-Is 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.

The orderwire ports are standard RJ-11 receptacles. The pins on the orderwire ports correspond to the tip and ring orderwire assignments. Orderwire pin assignments are described in Table 3-10. Figure 3-10 shows the RJ-11 cable.

When provisioning the orderwire subnetwork, make sure that an orderwire loop does not exist. Loops cause oscillation and an unusable orderwire channel.

3.8.4 User Data Channel

The User Data Channel (UDC) features a dedicated data channel of 64 kBit/s (kbps) (F1 byte) between two nodes in an ONS 15454 SDH network. Each AIC-I card provides two UDCs, UDC-A and UDC-B, through separate RJ-11 connectors on the front of the AIC-I. Each UDC can be routed to an individual optical interface in the ONS 15454 SDH system. For instructions, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Installation and Operations Guide, R3.4.

The UDC ports are standard RJ-11 receptacles. The UDC pin assignments are listed in Table 3-11. Figure 3-10 shows the RJ-11 cable connector.

3.9 E1-N-14 Card

The fourteen-port ONS 15454 SDH E1-N-14 card provides fourteen ITU-compliant, G.703 E-1 ports. Each port of the E1-N-14 card operates at 2.048 MBit/s (Mbps) over a 120-ohm, twisted-pair copper cable (with FMEC-DS1/E1) or over a 75-ohm unbalanced coaxial cable (with FMEC-E1). Figure 3-11 shows the E1-N-14 faceplate and Figure 3-12 shows a block diagram of the card.

Figure 3-11 E1-N-14 faceplate

Figure 3-12 E1-N-14 block diagram

Each E1-N-14 port features ITU-T G.703 compliant outputs and inputs supporting cable losses of up to 6 dB at 1024 kHz. The E1-N-14 card supports 1:N (N <= 4) protection. You can also provision the E1-N-14 to monitor line and frame errors in both directions.

The E1-N-14 card can function as a working or protect card in 1:1 or 1:N protection schemes. If you use the E1-N-14 as a standard E-1 card in a 1:1 protection group, you can install the E1-N-14 card in any multispeed or high-speed card slot on the ONS 15454 SDH. If you use the card's 1:N functionality, you must install an E1-N-14 card in Slot 3 (for bank A) or Slot 15 (for bank B).

You can group and map E1-N-14 card traffic in VC-12 as per ITU-T G.707 to any other card in an ONS 15454 SDH node. For performance-monitoring purposes, you can gather bidirectional E-1 frame-level information (for example, loss of frame, parity errors, or CRC errors).


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 might leave part of the bandwidth unused.

3.11 DS3i-N-12 Card

The twelve-port ONS 15454 SDH DS3i-N-12 card provides twelve ITU-T G.703, Telcordia GR-499, and ITU-T G.704 compliant DS-3 ports per card. Each port operates at 44.736 MBit/s (Mbps) over a 75-ohm coaxial cable (with FMEC-E3/DS3). The DS3i-N-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, DS-3 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 3-15 shows the DS3i-N-12 faceplate and Figure 3-16 shows a block diagram of the card.

You can install the OC12 IR/STM4 SH 1310-4 card in any multispeed card slot (Slots 1 to 4 or 14 to 17). The card can be provisioned as part of an SNCP, of an MS-SPR, or in an ADM/TM configuration. Each interface features a 1310-nm laser and contains a transmit and receive connector (labeled) on the card faceplate. The card uses SC connectors.

The OC12 IR/STM4 SH 1310-4 card supports 1+1 unidirectional and bidirectional protection switching. You can provision protection on a per port basis.

The OC12 IR/STM4 SH 1310-4 detects LOS, LOF, LOP, MS-AIS, and MS-FERF conditions. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting and Maintenance Guide, R3.4 for a description of these conditions. The card also counts section and line BIP errors.

Nine of the cards operate in the blue band with a spacing of 2 * 100 GHz in the ITU grid (1530.33 nm, 1531.90 nm, 1533.47 nm, 1535.04 nm, 1536.61 nm, 1538.19 nm, 1539.77 nm, 1541.35 nm, and 1542.94 nm). The other nine cards operate in the red band with a spacing of 2 * 100 GHz in the ITU grid (1547.72 nm, 1549.32 nm, 1550.92 nm, 1552.52 nm, 1554.13 nm, 1555.75 nm, 1557.36 nm, 1558.98 nm, and 1560.61 nm).

You can install the OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards in any high-speed slot. You can provision this card as part of a MS-SPRing or SNCP. In an ADM/TM configuration, you can provision the card as either an access tributary or a transport span interface.


Note Slots 5, 6, 12, and 13 are high-speed slots.


Each OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz card uses extended long-reach optics operating individually within the ITU 100-GHz grid. The OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards are intended to be used in applications with long unregenerated spans of up to 200 km (with mid-span amplification). These transmission distances are achieved through the use of inexpensive optical amplifiers (flat gain amplifiers) such as erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFAs). Using co-located amplification, distances up to 200 km can be achieved for a single channel (160 km for 8 channels).

Maximum system reach in filterless applications is 24 dB or approximately 80 km without the use of optical amplifiers or regenerators. However, system reach also depends on the condition of the facilities, number of splices and connectors, and other performance-affecting factors. The OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards feature wavelength stability of +/- 0.25 nm. Each port contains a transmitter and a receiver.

The OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards are the first in a family of cards meant to support extended long-reach applications in conjunction with optical amplification. Using DFB laser technology, the OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards provide a solution at the lower extended long-reach distances.

The OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz port features a 1550-nm range laser and contains a transmit and receive connector (labeled) on the card faceplate. The card uses SC connectors and supports 1+1 unidirectional and bidirectional protection switching.

The OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards detect LOS, LOF, LOP, MS-AIS, and MS-FERF conditions. Refer to Chapter 1, "Alarm Troubleshooting," for a description of these conditions. The cards also count section and line BIP errors.

To enable MSP, the OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards extract the K1 and K2 bytes from the SDH overhead. The DCC bytes are forwarded to the TCC-I card; the TCC-I terminates the DCC.

3.26.1 OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz Card-Level Indicators

The OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards have three card-level LED indicators, listed in Table 3-23.

3.28 E100T-G Card

The E100T-G card provides twelve ports of IEEE 802.3-compliant, 10/100 interfaces. Each interface supports full-duplex operation for a maximum bandwidth of 200 MBit/s (Mbps) per port and 2.488 GBits/s (Gbps) per card. Each port independently detects the speed of an attached device (auto-senses) and automatically connects at the appropriate speed. The ports auto-configure to operate at either half or full duplex and can determine whether to enable or disable flow control. Figure 3-47 shows the card faceplate and Figure 3-48 shows a block diagram of the card.

Figure 3-47 E100T-G faceplate

Figure 3-48 E100T-G block diagram

The E100T-G Ethernet card provides high-throughput, low-latency packet switching of Ethernet traffic across an SDH/SONET network while providing a greater degree of reliability through SDH/SONET "self-healing" protection services. This Ethernet capability enables network operators to provide multiple 10/100 MBit/s (Mbps) access drops for high-capacity customer LAN interconnects, Internet traffic, and cable modem traffic aggregation. Efficient transport and co-existence of traditional TDM traffic with packet-switched data traffic are provided.

The E100T-G eliminates the need for external aggregation equipment such as Ethernet switches, remote headends or distributed points of presence (POPs).

Each E100T-G card supports standards-based, wire-speed, Layer 2 Ethernet switching between its Ethernet ports. The 802.1Q tag and port-based VLANs logically isolate traffic (typically subscribers). Priority queuing is also supported to provide multiple classes of service.

You can install the E100T-G card in any multispeed slot. Multiple Ethernet cards installed in an ONS 15454 SDH act as a single switch supporting a variety of SDH/SONET port configurations. You can create logical SDH/SONET ports by provisioning a number of VC-4 channels to the packet switch entity within the ADM. Logical ports can be created with a bandwidth granularity of VC-4. The ONS 15454 SDH supports VC-4-1c, VC-4-2c, or VC-4-4c signal levels.

3.28.1 E100T-G Card-Level Indicators

3.29 E1000-2-G Card

The E1000-2-G card provides two ports of IEEE-compliant, 1000 MBit/s (Mbps) interfaces. Each interface supports full-duplex operation for a maximum bandwidth of 2 GBits/s (Gbps) per port and 4 GBits/s (Gbps) per card. Each port auto-configures for full duplex and IEEE 802.3x flow control. The E1000-2-G card uses GBIC modular receptacles for the optical interfaces.

Two GBIC modules are offered as separate orderable products for maximum customer flexibility: an IEEE 1000Base-SX compliant, 850-nm optical module and an IEEE 1000Base-LX-compliant, 1300-nm optical module. The 850-nm SX optics are designed for multimode fiber and distances of up to 220 meters on 62.5 micron fiber and up to 550 meters on 50 micron fiber. The 1300-nm LX optics are designed for single-mode fiber and distances of up to five kilometers. Other GBIC modules for long-reach 1550-nm and twisted-pair copper will be offered for use with the E1000 card in a future release. Figure 3-49 shows the card faceplate and Figure 3-50 shows a block diagram of the card.


Note When using an LX GBIC with 62.5-micron diameter MMF cable, you must install a mode-conditioning patch cord (CAB-GELX-625 or equivalent) between the GBIC and the MMF cable on both the transmit and receive ends of the link. The mode-conditioning patch cord is required for link distances less than 328 feet (100 m) or greater than 984 feet (300 m). The mode-conditioning patch cord prevents overdriving the receiver for short lengths of MMF and reduces differential mode delay for long lengths of MMF.

This enables network operators to provide multiple 1000 MBit/s (Mbps) access drops for high-capacity customer LAN interconnects, Internet traffic, and cable modem traffic aggregation. Efficient transport and co-existence of traditional TDM traffic with packet-switched data traffic is provided.

The E1000-2-G card eliminates the need for external aggregation equipment such as Ethernet or ATM switches at the customer site, remote headends or distributed POPs.

Each E1000-2-G card supports standards-based, Layer 2 Ethernet switching between its Ethernet ports and any other Ethernet or SDH/SONET trunk interfaces on the ONS 15454 SDH. The IEEE 802.1Q tag and port-based VLANS logically isolate traffic (typically subscribers). Priority queuing is also supported to provide multiple classes of service. Two queues are provided on card. Queue level is settable from 0 to 7; 0 to 3 and 4 to 7 map.

You can install the E1000-2-G card into any multispeed slot for a total shelf capacity of 20 Gigabit Ethernet ports. Multiple Ethernet cards installed in an ONS 15454 SDH can act as either a single switching entity or as a single switch supporting a variety of SDH/SONET port configurations.

You can create logical SDH/SONET ports by provisioning VC channels to the packet switch entity within an ADM. Logical ports can be created with a bandwidth granularity of VC-4. In a single or multicard configuration, the ONS 15454 SDH can support 1 VC-4-4c, 2 VC-4-2c, or 4 VC-4-1c unstitched VC signal levels and 2 VC-4-2c or 4 VC-4-1c stitched signal levels.

IEEE 1000Base-LX-compliant, 1300-nm, optical module

IEEE 1000Base-ZX-compliant, 1550-nm, optical module

The 850-nm SX optics are designed for multimode fiber and distances of up to 220 meters on 62.5 micron fiber and up to 550 meters on 50 micron fiber. The 1300-nm LX optics are designed for single-mode fiber and distances of up to ten kilometers. The 1550-nm ZX optics are designed for single-mode fiber and distances of up to eighty kilometers. Figure 3-51 shows the card faceplate and the block diagram of the card.


Note When using an LX GBIC with 62.5-micron diameter MMF, you must install a mode-conditioning patch cord (CAB-GELX-625 or equivalent) between the GBIC and the MMF cable on both the transmit and receive ends of the link. The mode-conditioning patch cord is required for link distances less than 328 feet (100 m) or greater than 984 feet (300 m). The mode-conditioning patch cord prevents overdriving the receiver for short lengths of MMF and reduces differential mode delay for long lengths of MMF.

The G1000-4 Gigabit Ethernet card provides high-throughput, low-latency transport of Ethernet encapsulated traffic (IP and other Layer 2 or Layer 3 protocols) across an SDH/SONET network while providing a greater degree of reliability through SDH/SONET "self-healing" protection services. Carrier-class Ethernet transport is achieved by hitless (< 50 ms) performance in the event of any failures or protection switches (such as 1+1 MSP, SNCP, MS-SPRing, or optical equipment protection) and full provisionability and manageability, as in SONET service. Full provisioning support is possible via CTC or CTM.

You can install the G1000-4 card into any multispeed slot for a total shelf capacity of 48 Gigabit Ethernet ports. (The practical limit is 40 ports because at least two slots are typically populated by optical cards such as STM-64). Each G1000-4 card performs completely independently of the other cards in the same shelf.

You can create logical SDH/SONET ports by provisioning VC channels to the packet switch entity within an ADM. Logical ports can be created with a bandwidth granularity of VC-4. In a single or multicard configuration, the ONS 15454 SDH can support 1 VC-4-4c, 2 VC-4-2c, or 4 VC-4-1c unstitched VC signal levels and 2 VC-4-2c or 4 VC-4-1c stitched signal levels. Each Ethernet port can be mapped to exactly one SONET/SDH circuit creating a logical end-to-end Ethernet link over SONET/SDH. The SONET circuit sizes supported are STS-1, STS-3c, STS-6c, STS-9c, STS-24c, and STS-48c.

3.30.1 G1000-4 Card-Level Indicators

The G1000-4 card faceplate has two card-level LED indicators, listed in Table 3-28.

Table 3-28 G1000-4 Card-Level Indicators  

Card-Level LEDs
Description

FAIL LED (red)

The red FAIL LED indicates that the card's processor is not ready or a catastrophic software failure occurred on the G1000-4 card. As part of the boot sequence, the FAIL LED is turned on, and it goes off when the software is deemed operational.

ACT LED (green)

A green ACT LED provides the operational status of the G1000-4. When the ACT LED is green it indicates that the G1000-4 card is active and the software is operational.


3.30.2 G1000-4 Port-Level Indicators

The G1000-4 card also has one bicolor LED per port. The function of these four LEDs is according to Table 3-29.

Table 3-29 G1000-4 Port-Level Indicators  

Port-Level LED
Description

Off

No link exists to the Ethernet port.

Steady amber

A link exists to the Ethernet port, but traffic flow is inhibited. For example, a lack of circuit setup, an error on the line, or a non-enabled port might inhibit traffic flow.

Solid green

A link exists to the Ethernet port, but no traffic is carried on the port.

Flashing green

A link exists to the Ethernet port, and traffic is carried on the port. The LED flash rate reflects the traffic rate for the port.
