Card Reference


This chapter describes the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH cards. It includes descriptions, hardware specifications, and block diagrams for each card. For installation and card turn-up procedures, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Installation and Operations Guide, R3.3.

3.1 Overview

The cards for the ONS 15454 SDH include front mount electrical connection cards (FMECs), common control cards, electrical cards, optical cards, and Ethernet cards. Each card is marked with a symbol that corresponds to a slot (or slots) on the ONS 15454 SDH shelf assembly. The cards are then installed into slots displaying the same symbols (refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Installation and Operations Guide, R3.3 for a list of slots/symbols). The overview in this section provides a summary of the cards.

3.1.1 Common Control Cards

The common control cards are the Timing Communications and Control International (TCC-I) card, and the Cross Connect 10 GBits/s (Gbps) XC10G card. The TCC-I is the main processing center of the ONS 15454 SDH and provides system initialization, provisioning, alarm reporting, maintenance, and diagnostics. The XC10G card is the central element for switching; it establishes connections and performs time division switching (TDS). Power supply and alarming interfaces are dealt with in the Electrical Cards section of this chapter.

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. Your power distribution network can be designed based on your maximum ONS 15454 SDH system power draw, or use 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, R3.3" 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 30 amps for each A and B power feeder on each ONS 15454 SDH shelf assembly. Feeder lines should be fused at 30 amps. This recommendation is based on the shelf assembly's current rated maximum power draw of 30 amps at -48VDC. The maximum power draw configuration on the ONS 15454 SDH, based on the hardware available with Release 3.3, requires 30 amps at -48VDC.

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, R3.3. 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 may 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 Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Installation and Operations Guide, R3.3.


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, 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, R3.3.

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 Communication and Control (TCC-I) Card

The TCC-I performs system initialization, provisioning, alarm reporting, maintenance, diagnostics, IP address detection/resolution, SDH 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 3 E (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


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 BITS ports for frequency accuracy. The TCC-I selects a recovered clock, a BITS or an internal Stratum 3 E 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 BER counts are not in excess of 1 * 10-3 and completion time is less than 50 ms.

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


Note   Cisco does not support operating 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(s) card has 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.

Table 3-5   TCC-I Card-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-connections, and functions 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 may leave part of the bandwidth unused.


Figure 3-6   XC10G Faceplate


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 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 MBits/s (Mbps) over a 120W twisted-pair copper cable (with FMEC-DS1/E1) or over a 75W unbalanced coaxial cable (with FMEC-E1). Figure 3-9 shows the E1-N-14 faceplate and Figure 3-10 shows a block diagram of the card.


Figure 3-9   E1-N-14 faceplate


Each E1-N-14 port features ITU-T G.703 compliant level 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 (loss of frame, parity errors or CRC errors, for example).


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.

3.8.1 E1-N-14 Card-Level Indicators

Table 3-8   E1-N-14 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 FAIL LED persists.


Caution   Removing a card that currently carries traffic on one or more ports can cause a traffic hit. To avoid this, perform an external switch if a switch has not already occurred. Consult "Maintenance," for information.

ACT/STBY LED

Green (Active)

Yellow (Standby)

The ACT/STBY LED indicates when the E1-N-14 card is operational and ready to carry traffic (green) or when the card is in standby mode (yellow).

Yellow SF LED

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

3.24 OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz Cards

Eighteen distinct STM-16 ITU 100 GHz dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) cards comprise the ONS 15454 SDH DWDM channel plan. This plan contains every second in a series of 100 GHz spacing wavelengths. Though the ONS 15454 SDH only uses 200 GHz spacing, the cards work in 100 GHz spacing nodes, as well. Each OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz card provides one ITU-T G.692, ITU-T G.707, ITU-T G.957, ITU-T G.958-compliant, SDH STM-16 port. The interface operates at 2.488 GBits/s (Gbps) over a single-mode fiber span. Each card supports concatenated or non-concatenated payloads at STM-1, STM-4, or STM-16 signal levels on a per VC-4 basis. Figure 3-39 shows the OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz faceplate and Figure 3-40 shows a block diagram of the card.


Warning Class 1 laser product.


Figure 3-39   OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz faceplate


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, 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, 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 Distributed Feedback (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 "Alarm Troubleshooting," for a description of these conditions. The cards also count section and line BIT 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.

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

3.26 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 MBits/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 3-43 shows the card faceplate and Figure 3-44 shows a block diagram of the card.


Figure 3-43   E100T-G faceplate


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 MBits/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.

3.26.1 E100T-G Card-Level Indicators

The E100T-G card faceplate has three card-level LED indicators.

Table 3-19   E100T-G Card-Level Indicators

Card-Level LEDs  Description 

Red FAIL LED

The red FAIL LED indicates the card's processor is not ready or catastrophic software failure occurred on the E100T-G card. As part of the boot sequence, the FAIL LED is turned on until the software deems the card operational.

Green ACT LED

A green ACT LED provides the operational status of the E100T-G. When the ACT LED is green it indicates that the E100T-G card is active and the software is operational.

3.26.2 E100T-G Port-Level Indicators

The E100T-G card also has twelve pairs of LEDs (one pair for each port) to indicate port conditions. A green LINK LED indicates a link is detected, ON indicates an active connection and OFF indicates an inactive connection or unidirectional traffic.

You can find the status of the E100T-G card port 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 "Alarm Troubleshooting," for a complete description of the alarm messages.

Table 3-20   E100T-G Port-Level Indicators

Port-Level Indicators  Description 

A (Yellow)

The port is active. Data is being received and/or transmitted: By default, the LED marked "A" indicates that the transmitter is active, but could also be changed in this register to indicate link status, duplex status or an active receiver.

L (Green)

Link is established. Also, the LED marked "L" indicates by default that the link for this port is up, but can also be programmed to indicate duplex status, operating speed or collision.

Figure 3-47   G1000-4 faceplate and block diagram


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 TL1, 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, STS-48c.
