4.2 Electrical Card Protection

The ONS 15454 provides a variety of electrical card protection methods. This section describes the protection options. Figure 4-1 shows a 1:1 protection scheme and Figure 4-2 shows a 1:N protection scheme.

4.2.1 Protection, 1:1

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 4-1 shows the ONS 15454 in a 1:1 protection configuration. Each working card in an odd-numbered slot is paired with a protect card in an even-numbered slot: Slot 1 is protecting Slot 2, Slot 3 is protecting Slot 4, Slot 5 is protecting Slot 6, Slot 17 is protecting Slot 16, Slot 15 is protecting Slot 14, and Slot 13 is protecting Slot 12. The following electrical cards use a 1:1 protection scheme: EC1-12, DS1-14, DS3-12 and DS3-12E.

Figure 4-1 ONS 15454 cards in a 1:1 protection configuration

4.2.2 Protection, 1:N

1:N protection allows a single card to protect up to five working cards of the same DS-N level. A DS1N-14 card protects DS1-14 cards, a DS3N-12 card protects DS3-12 cards, and DS3N-12E cards protect DS3-12E cards. The standard DS1-14, DS3-12, and DS3-12E cards provide 1:1 protection only. Currently, 1:N protection operates only at the DS-1 and DS-3 levels. 1:N cards have added circuitry to act as the protection card in a 1:N protection group. Otherwise, the card is identical to the standard card and can serve as a normal working card.

The physical DS-1 or DS-3 interfaces on the ONS 15454 backplane use the working card until the working card fails. When the node detects this failure, the protection card takes over the physical DS-1 or DS-3 electrical interfaces through the relays and signal bridging on the backplane. Figure 4-2 shows the ONS 15454 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 4-2 ONS 15454 cards in a 1:N protection configuration

4.2.2.1 Revertive Switching

1:N protection supports revertive switching. Revertive switching sends the electrical interfaces (traffic) 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 the ONS 15454 software, Cisco Transport Controller (CTC). To set the revertive delay, see the Cisco ONS 15454 Installation and Operations Guide. All cards in a protection group share the same reversion settings. 1:N protection groups default to automatic reversion.

4.2.2.2 Protection Guidelines, 1:N

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

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 supports 1:N equipment protection for all add-drop multiplexer configurations (ring, linear, and terminal), as specified by Telcordia GR-253-CORE.

The ONS 15454 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.

For detailed procedures on setting up DS-1 and DS-3 protection groups, see the protection information in the Cisco ONS 15454 Installation and Operations Guide.

4.3 Electrical Card Protection and the Backplane

Protection schemes for electrical cards differ slightly depending on the Electrical Interface Assembly (EIA) type used on the ONS 15454 backplane. The difference is due to the varying connector size. For example, because BNC connectors are larger, fewer DS3-12 cards can be supported when using a BNC connector.


Note For EIA descriptions and installation, see the Cisco ONS 15454 Installation and Operations Guide.



Caution When a protection switch moves traffic from the DS3-12 working/active card to the DS3-12 protect/standby card, ports on the new active/standby card cannot be taken out of service as long as traffic is switched. Lost traffic can result when a port is taken out of service even if the DS3-12 standby card no longer carries traffic.

4.3.1 Standard BNC Protection

When you use BNC connectors, the ONS 15454 supports 1:1 protection or 1:N protection for a total of four working DS-3 electrical cards. If you are using EC-1 electrical cards with the BNC EIA, the ONS 15454 supports 1:1 protection and a total of four working cards. Slots 2, 4, 14 and 16 are designated working slots. These slots are mapped to a set of 12 BNC connectors on the EIA. These slots can be used without protection for unprotected DS-3 access.

With 1:N or 1:1 protection, Slots 1, 3, 15 and 17 are designated for protection when BNC connectors are used. With 1:N protection, Slots 3 and 15 are also designated for protection when BNC connectors are used. Slots 5, 6, 12, and 13 do not support DS3-12 cards when you use the regular BNC EIA.

4.3.2 High-Density BNC Protection

When you use the High-Density BNC EIA, the ONS 15454 supports 1:1 protection or 1:N protection for eight total working DS-3 electrical cards. If you are using EC-1 electrical cards with the High-Density BNC EIA, the ONS 15454 supports 1:1 protection and a total of eight working cards. Slots 1, 2, 4, 5, 13, 14, 16, and 17 are designated working slots.

These slots are mapped to a set of 12 BNC type connectors on the EIA. You can use these slots without protection for unprotected DS-3 or EC-1 access. Slots 3 and 15 are designated for 1:N protection slots when you use BNC connectors with the High-Density BNC EIA. Slots 6 and 12 do not support DS-3 or EC-1 cards when you use the High-Density BNC EIA.

4.3.3 SMB Protection

When you use SMB connectors, the ONS 15454 supports 1:1 or 1:N protection for the DS-1 and the DS-3 electrical cards. If you are using EC-1 cards with the SMB EIA, the ONS 15454 supports 1:1 protection. Working and protection electrical cards are defined by card slot pairs (the same card type is used for working and protect modules; the protection of the card is defined by the slot where it is housed). Each slot maps to a set of 12 or 14 SMB connectors on the EIA depending on the number of ports on the corresponding card. Any slot can be used without protection for unprotected DS-1, DS-3, or EC-1 access.

The DS1N-14 card can be a working or protect card in 1:1 or 1:N protection schemes. When used with 1:N protection, the DS1N-14 card can protect up to five DS1-14 plug-ins using the SMB connectors with the DS-1 electrical interface adapters (baluns).

4.3.4 AMP Champ Protection

When you use AMP Champ connectors, the ONS 15454 supports 1:1 or 1:N protection for the DS-1 cards. The DS1N-14 card can be a working or protect card in 1:1 or 1:N protection schemes. When used with 1:N protection, the DS1N-14 card can protect up to five DS1-14 plug-ins using the AMP Champ EIA.

4.4 Optical Card Protection

With 1+1 port-to-port protection, any number of ports on the protect card can be assigned to protect the corresponding ports on the working card. The working and protect cards do not have to be placed side by side in the node. A working card must be paired with a protect card of the same type, for example, an OC-3 card should be paired with another OC-3 card. The protection takes place on the port level, any number of ports on the protect card can be assigned to protect the corresponding ports on the working card.

For example, on a four-port card, you can assign one port as a protection port on the protect card (protecting the corresponding port on the working card) and leave three ports unprotected. Conversely, you can assign three ports as protection ports and leave one port unprotected.


Note Currently, the OC-3 card is the only multiple port optical card. You cannot make protection groups on the same multiport 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.

1+1 span protection can be either revertive or non-revertive. 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.

You create and modify protection schemes using CTC software. For more information, see the Cisco ONS 15454 Installation and Operations Guide.

4.5 Unprotected Cards

Unprotected cards are not included in a protection scheme; therefore, a card failure or a signal error results in lost data. Because no bandwidth lies in reserve for protection, unprotected schemes maximize the available ONS 15454 bandwidth. Figure 4-3 shows the ONS 15454 in an unprotected configuration. All cards are in a working state.

Figure 4-3 ONS 15454 in an unprotected configuration

4.6 Timing Communication and Control (TCC+) Card

The TCC+ performs system initialization, provisioning, alarm reporting, maintenance, diagnostics, IP address detection/resolution, SONET Data Communications Channel (DCC) termination, and system fault detection for the ONS 15454. The TCC+ also ensures that the system maintains Telcordia timing requirements. Figure 4-4 shows the TCC+ faceplate and a block diagram of the card.

Figure 4-4 TCC+ faceplate and block diagram

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

The TCC+ supports multichannel, high-level data link control (HDLC) processing for the DCC. Up to 48 DCCs can be routed over the Serial Communication Interface (SCI) and terminated at the TCC+. The TCC+ selects and processes ten DCCs to facilitate remote system management interfaces.

The TCC+ performs all system-timing functions for each ONS 15454. The TCC+ monitors the recovered clocks from each traffic card and two DS-1 (BITS) interfaces for frequency accuracy. The TCC+ selects a recovered clock, a BITS, or an internal Stratum 3 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+ to synchronize with the recovered clock, which provides holdover if the reference is lost.

Install TCC+ cards in Slots 7 and 11 for redundancy. If the active TCC+ fails, traffic switches to the protect TCC+. All TCC+ protection switches conform to protection switching standards of less than 50 ms.

The TCC+ features an RJ-45 10Base-T LAN port and an RS-232 DB9 type craft interface for user interfaces. The TL1 craft port runs at 9600 bps.


Caution Cisco does not recommend operating the ONS 15454 with only one TCC+ card. To safeguard your system, always operate in a redundant configuration.

4.6.1 TCC+ Card-Level Indicators

The TCC+ faceplate has eight LEDs. The first two LEDs are card-level indicators.

4.7 XC Cross-Connect Card

The cross-connect card is the central element for ONS 15454 switching. Available cross-connects are the XC, XCVT, and XC10G. The XC establishes connections and performs time division switching (TDS) at the STS-1 level between ONS 15454 traffic cards. The XC card faceplate and block diagram are shown in Figure 4-5. The cross-connect matrix is shown in Figure 4-6.

Figure 4-5 XC card faceplate and block diagram

The switch matrix on the XC card consists of 288 bidirectional ports. When creating bidirectional STS-1 cross-connects, each cross-connect uses two STS-1 ports. This results in 144 bidirectional STS-1 cross-connects. The switch matrix is fully crosspoint, non-blocking, and broadcast supporting. (Any STS-1 on any port can be connected to any other port, meaning that the STS cross-connections are non blocking.) This allows network operators to concentrate or groom low-speed traffic from line cards onto high-speed transport spans and to drop low-speed traffic from transport spans onto line cards.

Figure 4-6 XC cross-connect matrix

The XC card has 12 input ports and 12 output ports. Four input and output ports operate at either STS-12 or STS-48 rates. The remaining eight input and output ports operate at the STS-12 rate. An STS-1 on any of the input ports can be mapped to an STS-1 output port, thus providing full STS-1 time slot assignments (TSA).

The XC card works with the TCC+ card to maintain connections and set up cross-connects within the ONS 15454. Either the XC, XCVT, or XC10G is required to operate the ONS 15454. You establish cross-connect and provisioning information through CTC. The TCC+ establishes the proper internal cross-connect information and relays the setup information to the cross-connect card.


Caution Do not operate the ONS 15454 with a single TCC+ card or a single XC/XCVT/XC10G card installed. Always operate the shelf with one working and one protect card of each type.

For simplex operation, you can install a single XC card in Slots 8 or 10. A second XC should be added for redundancy. The card has no external interfaces. All cross-connect card interfaces are provided through the ONS 15454 backplane.

4.8 XCVT Cross-Connect Card

The XCVT card provides the same STS capability as a standard XC card and also provides VT cross-connection. The XCVT provides non-blocking STS-48 capacity to all of the high-speed slots and non-bidirectional blocking STS-12 capacity to all multispeed slots. Any STS-1 on any port can be connected to any other port, meaning that the STS cross-connections are non blocking.

Figure 4-7 shows the XCVT faceplate and block diagram. Figure 4-8 shows the cross-connect matrix.

Figure 4-7 XCVT faceplate and block diagram

The STS-1 switch matrix on the XCVT card consists of 288 bidirectional ports and adds a VT matrix that can manage up to 336 bidirectional VT1.5 ports or the equivalent of a bidirectional STS-12. The VT1.5-level signals can be cross connected, dropped, or rearranged. The TCC+ assigns bandwidth to each slot on a per STS-1 or per VT1.5 basis. The switch matrices are fully crosspoint and broadcast supporting.

The XCVT card works with the TCC+ card to maintain connections and set up cross-connects within the node. Either the XCVT, XC10G, or XC is required to operate the ONS 15454. You can establish cross-connect (circuit) information through CTC. The TCC+ establishes the proper internal cross-connect information and relays the setup information to the XCVT card.


Caution Do not operate the ONS 15454 with a single TCC+ card or a single XCVT/XC10G/XC card installed. Always operate the shelf with one working card and one protect card. Duplex cards must be the same type.

Figure 4-8 XCVT cross-connect matrix

4.8.1 VT Mapping

The VT structure is designed to transport and switch payloads below the DS-3 rate. The Cisco ONS 15454 performs Virtual Tributary (VT) mapping according to Telcordia GR-253 standards. Table 4-17 shows the VT numbering scheme for the ONS 15454 as it relates to the Telcordia standard.

4.8.2 XCVT Hosting DS3XM-6

The XCVT card works with DS3XM-6 (transmux) cards. A single DS3XM-6 can demultiplex (map down to a lower rate) six DS-3 signals into 168 VT1.5s that the XCVT card manages and cross connects. XCVT cards host a maximum of 336 bidirectional VT1.5s. In most network configurations, two DS3XM-6 cards are paired as working and protect cards.

ACT/STBY LED
Green (Active)
Amber (Standby)

The ACT/STBY (Active/Standby) LED indicates whether the XCVT is active and carrying traffic (green) or in standby mode to the active XCVT card (amber).


4.8.4 XC/XCVT Compatibility

The XCVT card is compatible with the XC cards. The XCVT supports run-time compatibility with the XC cross-connect both within a single node and within a ring of mixed XCVT and XC nodes. However, working and protect cards within a single ONS 15454 must be either two XC cards or two XCVT cards. If an XC card or an XCVT card are used together as a working and protect pair, the XCVT acts as an XC card.

The XC and XCVT are supported in unidirectional path switched ring (UPSR) and bidirectional line switched ring (BLSR) configurations. VT and STS-level cross-connect and protection management are also supported in either type of ring. Nodes that rearrange or drop VTs must use an XCVT. Nodes that only rearrange or drop STSs can use an XC. You do not need to upgrade STS-only nodes to XCVT in a ring that can handle both VT and STS drop/rearrangement. In this scenario, however, the XC must run Software R2.0 or higher.

When upgrading from XC to XCVT cards, the first XCVT card installed acts as an XC card until the second XCVT card is installed. For more information, see Chapter 3, "Maintenance."

To create an STS-capable ring that allows VT drops at some nodes, all of the nodes in the ring must first run Software R2.0 or higher. The nodes that allow VT drops must use XCVT, but the nodes that do not allow VT drops can use the XC or XCVT card.

4.9 XC10G Cross-Connect Card

New to Software R3.1 is the XC10G card ( Figure 4-9), which cross-connects STS-12, STS-48, and STS-192 signal rates. The XC10G allows up to four times the bandwidth of current XC and XCVT cards. The XC10G provides a maximum of 1152 STS-1 cross-connections. Any STS-1 on any port can be connected to any other port, meaning that the STS cross-connections are non blocking.

Figure 4-9 shows the XC10G faceplate and block diagram. Figure 4-10 shows the cross-connect matrix.

Figure 4-9 XC10G faceplate and block diagram

The XC10G card manages up to 336 bidirectional VT1.5 ports and 576 bidirectional STS-1 ports. The TCC+ assigns bandwidth to each slot on a per STS-1 or per VT1.5 basis.

Either the XC10G, XCVT, or XC is required to operate the ONS 15454. You can establish cross-connect (circuit) information through the Cisco Transport Controller (CTC). The TCC+ establishes the proper internal cross-connect information and sends the setup information to the cross-connect card.


Caution Do not operate the ONS 15454 with a single TCC+ card or a single XC10G/XCVT/XC card installed. Always operate the shelf with one working and one protect card. Duplex cards must be the same type.

4.9.4 XC/XCVT/XC10G Compatibility

The XC10G supports the same features as the XC and XCVT cross-connects. The XC10G card is required for OC-192 and OC-48 any-slot operation. Do not use the XCVT or XC cards if you are using the OC-192 card, or if you placed one of the OC-48 any slot cards in a multispeed slot.


Note A configuration mismatch alarm occurs when a XC or XCVT cross-connect card coexists with an OC-192 card placed in the high-speed slot, or with an OC-48 card placed in the multispeed slot.


The TCC+ card, Software R3.1 or higher and the new 15454-SA-ANSI shelf assembly are required for the operation of the XC10G. If you are using Ethernet cards, the E1000-2-G or the E100T-G must be used when the XC10G cross-connect card is in use. Do not pair an XC or XCVT with an XC10G. When upgrading from XC or XCVT to the XC10G card, see the Cisco ONS 15454 Installation and Operations Guide for more information.

4.10 Alarm Interface Controller Card

The optional Alarm Interface Controller (AIC) card provides customer-defined alarm input/output (I/O) and supports local and express orderwire. Figure 4-11 shows the AIC faceplate and a block diagram of the card. Figure 4-12 shows the RJ-11 cable.

Figure 4-11 AIC faceplate and block diagram

4.10.1 User-Defined Alarms

The AIC card provides input/output alarm contact closures. You can define up to four external alarms and four external controls. The physical connections are made using the backplane wire-wrap pins. The alarms are defined using CTC and TL1. For instructions, see the Cisco ONS 15454 Installation and Operations Guide.

Each alarm contact has a corresponding LED on the front panel of the AIC that indicates that the status of the alarm. 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 four 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), a 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 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:

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.

4.10.2 Orderwire

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

The AIC allows simultaneous use of both local (section overhead signal) and express (line overhead channel) orderwire channels on a SONET ring or particular optics facility. Local orderwire also allows communication at 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 SONET facility. The ONS 15454 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 BLSR and UPSR.


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

The ONS 15454 implementation of both local and express orderwire is broadcast in nature. The line acts as a party line. There is no signalling for private point-to-point connections. 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 facilities for each local and express orderwire are provisionable as orderwire paths.

The AIC supports a "call" button on the module front panel which, when pressed, causes all ONS 15454 AICs on the orderwire subnetwork to "ring." The ringer/buzzer resides on the AIC. There is also a "ring" LED that mimics the AIC ringer. It flashes when any "call" button is pressed on the orderwire subnetwork. The "call" button and ringer/LED allow a remote craftsperson to get the attention of craftspeople across the network.

The orderwire ports are standard RJ-11 receptacles. The pins on the orderwire ports correspond to the tip and ring orderwire assignments.

4.11 EC1-12 Card

The EC1-12 card provides 12 Telcordia-compliant, GR-253 STS-1 electrical ports per card. Each port operates at 51.840 Mbps over a single 75 ohm 728A or equivalent coaxial span. Figure 4-13 shows the EC1-12 faceplate and a block diagram of the card.

Figure 4-13 EC1-12 faceplate and block diagram

STS path selection for UNEQ-P, AIS-P, and bit error rate (BER) thresholds is done on the SONET ring interfaces (optical cards) in conjunction with the STS cross-connect. The EC1-12 terminates but does not select the 12 working STS-1 signals from the backplane. The EC1-12 maps each of the 12 received EC1 signals into 12 STS-1s with visibility into the SONET path overhead.

You can install the EC1-12 card in any multispeed or high-speed card slot on the ONS 15454. Each EC1-12 interface features DSX-level (digital signal cross-connect frame) outputs supporting distances up to 450 feet depending on facility conditions.

An EC1-12 card can be 1:1 protected with another EC1-12 card but cannot protect more than one EC1-12 card. You must install the EC1-12 in an even-numbered slot to serve as a working card and in an odd-numbered slot to serve as a protect card.

4.11.1 EC1-12 Hosted by XCVT

All 14 VT1.5 payloads from a EC1-12 card are carried in a single STS-1 to the XC or XCVT card where the payload is further aggregated for efficient STS-1 transport. XCVT cards host a maximum of 336 bidirectional VT1.5s.

The DS1-14 card can function as a working or protect card in 1:1 protection schemes and as a working card in 1:N protection schemes. Figure 4-14 shows the DS1-14 faceplate and a block diagram of the card.

Figure 4-14 DS1-14 faceplate and block diagram

You can install the DS1-14 card in any multispeed or high-speed card slot on the ONS 15454. Each DS1-14 port has DSX-level (digital signal cross-connect frame) outputs supporting distances up to 655 feet.

The DS1-14 card supports 1:1 protection. The DS1-14 can be a working card in a 1:N protection scheme with the proper backplane EIA and wire-wrap or AMP Champ connectors. You can also provision the DS1-14 to monitor for line and frame errors in both directions.

You can group and map DS1-14 card traffic in STS-1 increments to any other card in an ONS 15454 except DS-3 cards. Each DS-1 is asynchronously mapped into a SONET VT1.5 payload and the card carries a DS-1 payload intact in a VT1.5. For performance monitoring purposes, you can gather bidirectional DS-1 frame-level information (loss of frame, parity errors, cyclic redundancy check [CRC] errors, etc.).

4.27 OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz Cards

Thirty-seven distinct OC48 ITU 100GHz dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) cards provide the ONS 15454 DWDM channel plan. Each OC-48 DWDM card has one SONET OC-48/SDH STM-16 port that complies with Telcordia, GR-253 SONET, and the International Telecommunication Union's ITU-T G.692, and ITU-T G.958.

The port operates at 2.49 Gbps over a single-mode fiber span. The card carries VT, concatenated, and non-concatenated payloads at STS-1, STS-3c, STS-6c, STS-12c, or STS-48c signal levels. Figure 4-29 shows the OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz faceplate and a block diagram of the card.

Figure 4-29 OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz faceplate and block diagram

Nineteen of the cards operate in the blue band with spacing of 100 GHz on the ITU grid standard G.692 and Telcordia GR-2918-CORE, issue 2 (1528.77 nm, 1530.33 nm, 1531.12 nm, 1531.90 nm, 1532.68 nm, 1533.47 nm, 1534.25 nm, 1535.04 nm, 1535.82 nm, 1536.61 nm, 1538.19 nm, 1538.98 nm, 1539.77 nm, 1540.56 nm, 1541.35 nm, 1542.14 nm, 1542.94 nm, 1543.73 nm, 1544.53 nm).

The other eighteen cards operate in the red band with spacing of 100 GHz on the ITU grid (1546.12 nm, 1546.92 nm, 1547.72 nm, 1548.51 nm,1549.32 nm, 1550.12 nm, 1550.92 nm, 1551.72 nm, 1552.52 nm, 1554.13 nm, 1554.94 nm, 1555.75 nm, 1556.55 nm, 1557.36 nm, 1558.17 nm, 1558.98 nm, 1559.79 nm, 1560.61 nm). These cards are also designed to interoperate with the Cisco ONS 15216 DWDM solution.

You can install the OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards in any high-speed slot and provision the card as a drop or span card in a two-fiber or four-fiber BLSR, UPSR, or in an ADM (linear) configuration. Each OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz card uses extended long reach optics operating individually within the ITU-T 100 GHz grid. The OC-48 DWDM 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 Cisco ONS 15216 erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFAs).

Maximum system reach in filterless applications is 26 dB 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. When used in combination with ONS 15216 100 GHz filters, the link budget is reduced by the insertion loss of the filters plus an additional 2dB power penalty. The OC-48 ELR DWDM cards wavelength stability is +/- 0.12 nm for the life of the product and over the full range of operating temperatures. Each interface contains a transmitter and receiver.

The OC-48 ELR cards detect loss of signal (LOS), loss of frame (LOF), loss of pointer (LOP), and line-layer alarm indication signal (AIS-L) conditions. See Chapter 1, "Alarm Troubleshooting" for a description of these conditions. The cards also count section and line BIT errors.

4.28 OC48 ELR 200 GHz Cards

Eighteen distinct OC48 ITU 200GHz dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) cards provide the ONS 15454 DWDM channel plan. Each OC-48 DWDM card provides one Telcordia-compliant, GR-253 SONET OC-48 port. The port operates at 2.49 Gbps over a single-mode fiber span. The card carries VT, concatenated, and non-concatenated payloads at STS-1, STS-3c, STS-6c, STS-12c, or STS-48c signal levels. Figure 4-29 shows the OC48 ELR DWDM faceplate and a block diagram of the card.

Figure 4-30 OC48 ELR 200 GHz faceplate and block diagram

Nine of the cards operate in the blue band with spacing of 200 GHz on 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 spacing of 200 GHz on 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). These cards are also designed to interoperate with the Cisco ONS 15216 DWDM solution.

You can install the OC48 ELR 200 GHz cards in any high-speed slot and provision the card as a drop or span card in a two-fiber or four-fiber BLSR, UPSR, or in an ADM (linear) configuration. Each OC48 ELR DWDM card uses extended long reach optics operating individually within the ITU-T 200 GHz grid. The OC48 DWDM 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 or other performance-affecting factors. The OC48 ELR DWDM cards feature wavelength stability of +/- 0.25 nm. Each interface contains a transmitter and receiver.

The OC48 ELR DWDM cards are the first in a family of cards meant to support extended long reach applications in conjunction with optical amplification. Using electro-absorption technology, the OC48 DWDM cards provide a solution at the lower-extended long reach distances.

The OC48 LR 1550 interface features a 1550 nm 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 cards detect LOS, LOF, LOP, AIS-L, and RDI-L conditions. See Chapter 1, "Alarm Troubleshooting" for a description of these conditions. The cards also count section and line BIT errors.

To enable APS, the OC48 ELR cards extract the K1 and K2 bytes from the SONET overhead. The DCC bytes are forwarded to the TCC+ card; the TCC+ terminates the DCC.

4.30 E100T-G Card

Use the E100T-G when the XC10G cross-connect card is in use. The ONS 15454 uses E100T-G cards for Ethernet (10 Mbps) and Fast Ethernet (100 Mbps). Each card provides 12 switched, IEEE 802.3-compliant, 10/100 Base-T Ethernet ports that can independently detect the speed of an attached device (auto-sense) and automatically connect at the appropriate speed. The ports auto-configure to operate at either half or full duplex and determine whether to enable or disable flow control. You can also configure Ethernet ports manually. Figure 4-33 shows the faceplate and a block diagram of the card.

Figure 4-33 E100T-G faceplate and block diagram

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

Each E100T-G card supports standards-based, wire-speed, layer 2 Ethernet switching between its Ethernet interfaces. The 802.1Q tag logically isolates traffic (typically subscribers). 802.1Q also supports multiple classes of service.

You can install the E100T-G card in any multispeed slot. Multiple Ethernet cards installed in an ONS 15454 can act independently or as a single Ethernet switch. You can create logical SONET ports by provisioning a number of STS channels to the packet switch entity within the ONS 15454. Logical ports can be created with a bandwidth granularity of STS-1. The ONS 15454 supports STS-1, STS-3c, STS-6c, or STS-12c circuit sizes.


Note When making an STS-12c Ethernet circuit, the E100 or E1000 cards must be configured as single-card EtherSwitch.

4.31 E1000-2-G Card

Use the E1000-2-G when the XC10G cross-connect card is in use. The ONS 15454 uses E1000-2-G cards for Gigabit Ethernet (1000 Mbps). The E1000-2-G card provides two IEEE-compliant, 1000 Mbps ports for high-capacity customer LAN interconnections. Each port supports full-duplex operation. Figure 4-34 shows the card faceplate and a block diagram of the card.

The E1000-2-G card uses standard Cisco gigabit interface converter (GBIC) modular receptacles for the optical ports. GBICs are hot-swappable input/output devices that plug into a Gigabit Ethernet port to link the port to the fiber-optic network. Cisco provides two GBIC models: one for short-reach applications and one for long-reach applications. The short-reach model connects to multimode fiber and the long-reach model requires single-mode fiber.

For Software R2.2.0 and later, both GBIC modules are offered as separate orderable products: 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. For more information see the Cisco ONS 15454 Installation and Operations Guide.

Figure 4-34 E1000-2-G faceplate and block diagram

The E1000-2-G Gigabit Ethernet card provides high-throughput, low-latency packet switching of Ethernet traffic across a SONET network while providing a greater degree of reliability through SONET "self-healing" protection services. This enables network operators to provide multiple 1000 Mbps access drops for high-capacity customer LAN interconnects. It enables efficient transport and co-existence of traditional TDM traffic with packet-switched data traffic.

Each E1000-2-G card supports standards-based, layer 2 Ethernet switching between its Ethernet interfaces and SONET interfaces on the ONS 15454. The 802.1Q VLAN tag logically isolates traffic (typically subscribers). The E1000-2-G supports two 802.1Q.

You can install the E1000-2-G card into any multispeed slot. Multiple Ethernet cards installed in an ONS 15454 can act together as a single switching entity or as an independent single switch supporting a variety of SONET port configurations.

You can create logical SONET ports by provisioning STS channels to the packet switch entity within the ONS 15454. Logical ports can be created with a bandwidth granularity of STS-1. The ONS 15454 supports STS-1, STS-3c, STS-6c, or STS-12c circuit sizes.


Note When making an STS-12c Ethernet circuit, the E100 or E1000 cards must be configured as single-card EtherSwitch.

4.31.2 E1000-2-G Port-Level Indicators

The E1000-2-G card also has one bicolor LED per port. When the green LINK LED is on, carrier is detected, meaning an active network cable is installed. When the green LINK LED is off, an active network cable is not plugged into the port, or the card is carrying unidirectional traffic. The amber port ACT LED flashes at a rate proportional to the level of traffic being received and transmitted over the port.

4.32 E100T-12 Card

Do not use the E100T-12 when the XC10G cross-connect card is in use. The ONS 15454 uses E100T-12 cards for Ethernet (10 Mbps) and Fast Ethernet (100 Mbps). Each card provides 12 switched, IEEE 802.3-compliant, 10/100 Base-T Ethernet ports that can independently detect the speed of an attached device (auto-sense) and automatically connect at the appropriate speed. The ports auto-configure to operate at either half or full duplex and determine whether to enable or disable flow control. You can also configure Ethernet ports manually. Figure 4-35 shows the faceplate and a block diagram of the card.
