5.2 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 5-1 shows the faceplate and a block diagram of the card.

Figure 5-1 E100T-12 faceplate and block diagram

The E100T-12 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-12 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-12 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.


5.2.1 E100T-12 Card-Level Indicators

The E100T-12 card faceplate has two card-level LED indicators.

Table 5-4 E100T-12 Card-Level Indicators  

Card-Level Indicators
Description
Red FAIL LED

The red FAIL LED indicates that the card's processor is not ready or catastrophic software failure occurred on the E100T-12 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-12. When the ACT LED is green it indicates that the E100T-12 card is active and the software is operational.

SF LED

5.2.2 E100T-12 Port-Level Indicators

The E100T-12 card also has 12 pairs of LEDs (one pair for each port) to indicate port conditions. You can find the status of the E100T-12 card port using the LCD screen on the ONS 15454 fan-tray assembly. Use the LCD to view the status of any port or card slot; the screen displays the number and severity of alarms for a given port or slot.

5.4 E1000-2 Card

Do not use the E1000-2 when the XC10G cross-connect card is in use. The ONS 15454 uses E1000-2 cards for Gigabit Ethernet (1000 Mbps). The E1000-2 card provides two IEEE-compliant, 1000 Mbps ports for high-capacity customer LAN interconnections. Each port supports full-duplex operation. Figure 5-3 shows the card faceplate and a block diagram of the card.

The E1000-2 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 Procedure Guide.

You can install the E1000-2 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.

5.6 G1000-4 Card

Use the G1000-4 card when the XC10G card is in use. The ONS 15454 uses G1000-4 cards for Gigabit Ethernet (1000 Mbps). The G1000-4 card provides four ports of IEEE-compliant, 1000 Mbps interfaces. Each port supports full-duplex operation for a maximum bandwidth of OC-48 on each card. The G1000-4 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;

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

an IEEE 1000Base-ZX-complaint, 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 5-5 shows the card faceplate and the block diagram of the card.

Figure 5-5 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 a SONET network. Carrier-class Ethernet transport is achieved by hitless (< 50 msec) performance in the event of any failures or protection switches (such as 1+1 APS, UPSR, or BLSR). Full provisioning support is possible via CTC, TL1, or CTM.

You can install the G1000-4 card into any multispeed slot for a total shelf capacity of 48 Gigabit Ethernet ports.


Note The practical G1000-4 port per shelf limit is 40, because at least 2 slots are typically filled by OC-N cards such as the OC-192.


The circuit sizes supported are STS-1, STS-3c, STS-6c, STS-9c, STS-24c, STS-48c.
