Data Sheet

Cisco ONS 15600 Series 4-Port 10-Gbps Optical Interface Cards

The Cisco® ONS 15600 Series Multiservice Switching Platform (MSSP) offers 40 Gbps of transport bandwidth with two 4-port OC-192/STM-48 interface cards, one short reach/short haul (SR/SH) and one long reach/long haul (LR/LH), providing users the capacity to aggregate and transport mission-critical metropolitan-area (metro) traffic (Figure 1).

Background

Fully Cisco designed and engineered, the Cisco ONS 15600 Series MSSP simplifies and revolutionizes bandwidth management in the metro core by allowing service providers to transparently integrate their metro core and metro edge networks, while dramatically reducing initial turn-up costs. The Cisco ONS 15600 Series MSSP combines the functions of multiple metro systems, including SONET/SDH multiplexers and digital cross-connect network elements, together in one scalable, easy-to-use platform with carrier-class reliability, availability, serviceability, operations, and management.

Product Overview

The OC-192/STM-64 capabilities on the Cisco ONS 15600 Series consist of a LR/LH and a SR/SH optical line card, providing interface specifications that meet the varied application needs of the service provider. Table 1 outlines the new Cisco ONS 15600 Series 4-Port OC-192/STM-64 Short-Reach/Short-Haul Interface Card and the Cisco ONS 15600 Series 4-Port OC-192/STM-64 Long-Reach/Long-Haul Interface Card now available for the Cisco ONS 15600 Series, and the applications they are designed to support.

Component

Application

SR/SH interface card

Suitable for metro regional or interoffice connections between central offices with span lengths of less than 2 km

LR/LH interface card

Suitable for metro regional or interoffice connections between central offices with span lengths between 40 and 80 km

 
Both interface cards provide four transmit and four receive optical interfaces in a single-slot footprint within the Cisco 15600 Series shelf assembly. Each port interface operates at the standard SONET/SDH (Telcordia GR-253-CORE and ITU G.703) 9.95328-Gbps bit rate. The SR/SH and LR/LH OC-192/STM-64 cards use four OGI connectors on the card faceplate that are routed through a cable-routing module to SC, ST, or FC terminations. The cards carry both concatenated payloads of STS-3c/VC-4, STS-12c/VC-4-4c, STS-24c/VC-4-8c, STS-48c/VC-4-16c, and STS-192c/VC-4-64c and nonconcatenated payloads on an STS-1 basis. In SONET mode, each optical port can be provisioned as STM-48 to enable the tunneling of SDH payloads in the form of STS-Nc concatenated payload over a SONET network. This helps enable North American service providers to transport SDH traffic from international cable landing points to customer sites. When operated within the outlined specifications (refer to Table 4) each port interface transports a 10-Gbps signal with a minimum bite error rate (BER) of 10E-12.
The OC-192/STM-64 SR/SH and LR/LH cards are deployable in any of the eight multiservice slots (slots 1-4 or slots 11-14) of the Cisco ONS 15600 Series platform. The cards can be commissioned for use in unidirectional-path switched ring/sub network connection protection (UPSR/SNCP), 2/4-fiber bidirectional line switched ring/multiplex section-shared protection ring (BLSR/MS-SPR), 1 + 1 automatic protection switching/multiplex section protection (APS/MSP), or path-protected mesh network (PPMN) architectures, offering service providers the flexibility to build the type of network required to meet their service demands, traffic patterns, and user needs. This card-provisioning flexibility also helps reduce the cost of inventory and simplifies engineering and deployment.
The OC-192/STM-64 SR/SH and LR/LH cards incorporate faceplate-mounted LEDs to provide a quick visual check of the operational status at the card. Printed on the faceplate is an icon, an orange circle, which indicates the shelf slot where the card can be physically installed. The card is supported by the integrated Cisco ONS 15600 Series Cisco Transport Controller Craft Manager, which provides the user access for operations, administration, maintenance, and provisioning (OAM&P) for the system.
