ONS 15540 ESPx - 4 Port Variable Optical Attenuator for LCMB

These new ONS 15540 ESPx 1-channel and 2-channel OADM modules with integrated VOA perform both DWDM and variable optical attenuation. These modules insert into a 2.5-Gbps line card motherboard installed in a CiscoONS15540ESPx shelf. The 2.5-Gbps line card motherboards can be installed in slots 2through5 and 8through11. Each 2.5-Gbps line card motherboard can hold up to four OADM modules with integrated VOA.

The new ONS 15540 ESPx 4-port VOA module provides variable optical attenuation for the mux/demux modules supported on the CiscoONS15540ESPx. This module allows you to attenuate up to four separate signals. You can attenuate a data channel generated by a transponder module, the OSC, or the trunk signal. The most common use is equalizing the signal power for four data channels in the same channel band.

The 4-port VOA modules insert into a 2.5-Gbps line card motherboard installed in a CiscoONS15540ESPx shelf. The 2.5-Gbps line card motherboards can be installed in slots 2through5 and 8through11.


Software Support
The Cisco IOS 12.2(22)SV release for the ONS 15500 metro optical DWDM platforms supports the following software features:
Feature
Description
2-Gbps ISC peer mode protocol monitoring on 2.5-Gbps transponder modules

Coupling Facility (CF) links, also known as ISC (InterSystem Channel) links, are used to connect mainframes to a CF. The CF is used by multiple mainframes to share data in a sysplex or Parallel Sysplex environment. This data sharing capability is key to the high availability features of a GDPS. The ONS 15530 and ONS 15540 now support the ISC peer mode coupling links that run over Fibre Channel at data rates of 2.1Gbps on the 2.5-Gbps transponder modules.
