  13. Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

DETAILED STEPS


Step 1

In the node view, click the Maintenance > DWDM > OTDR tabs.

Step 2

From the OTDR Port drop-down list, choose the port on which you want to perform the scan.

Note 

Only after you perform a scan and raise alarms, you can view the scan related details of an alarm.

CTC can log the data of a maximum of 32 historical OTDR scans. The history is maintained for OTDR scans in the same zone and direction. The values of the Back reflection and Insertion Loss are also listed for each scan along with the date and timestamp. If an OTDR-ABSOLUTE-x-EXCEEDED-xx or OTDR-BASELINE-x-EXCEEDED-xx alarm is raised, the triggering event is highlighted.

Step 3

Click Line Rx or Line Tx tabs.

Step 4

From the Sector drop-down list, choose a sector to perform the scan.

Step 5

Choose Base Scan or Last Scan.

When the last scan and baseline configurations differ, the last scan details are displayed on the graph. Choose Base Scan in the drop-down list to view the baseline scan.

Step 6

Click Hybrid Scan or Fast Scan from the Manual Scan area to start an OTDR scan manually.

Fast scan trace is displayed to the user for quick reference before the composite trace. It is displayed at the end of OTDR training operation and before start of the composite trace. A progress bar is provided to the user for each scan in the sector that displays the percentage of execution of the entire scan operation.

In R10.8, auto sector is substituted with the composite trace. The composite trace is stitched through scans executed on legacy zones (1km, 25km, 80km, 100km). The composite trace is provided only when OTDR training is successfully executed. When you start a fast scan on the RX port, an OTDR-FAST-SCAN-IN-PROGRESS-RX alarm is raised. When you start a fast scan on the TX port, an OTDR-FAST-SCAN-IN-PROGRESS-TX alarm is raised. The fast scan shuts down the OSC channel.

Note 

If an OTDR fast scan is triggered on a span with channels, an LOS-O alarm is raised. This alarm occurs as CTC cannot suppress the alarm on a port that holds traffic channels. An LOS alarm is also raised if all the provided channels are deleted during the scan. The LOS alarms, which are related to channels, are high priority alarms and are not hidden.

When you start a Hybrid scan on the RX port, an OTDR-HYBRID-SCAN-IN-PROGRESS-RX condtion is raised. When you start a Hybrid scan on the TX port, an OTDR-HYBRID-SCAN-IN-PROGRESS-TX condition is raised. Hybrid scan does not shut down the OSC channel and takes longer time to complete.

The alarms are raised at both near-end and far-end if the OSC link is established. If no OSC link is up, then the alarms are raised only at the near-end.
Note 

If no OSC link is up after you click Hybrid Scan, a fast scan is triggered.

In case of EDRA, When you start a Fast scan on the RX port, an OTDR-FAST-SCAN-IN-PROGRESS-TX alarm is raised. When you start Fast scan on the TX port, an OTDR-FAST-SCAN-IN-PROGRESS-RX alarm is raised. Fast scan shuts down the OSC channel. When you start a Hybrid scan on the RX port, an OTDR-HYBRID-SCAN-IN-PROGRESS-TX alarm is raised. When you start a Hybrid scan on the TX port, an OTDR-HYBRID-SCAN-IN-PROGRESS-RX alarm is raised. Hybrid scan does not shut down the OSC channel and takes longer time to complete.

Step 7

Click Yes in the Start Scan dialog box and click OK in the confirmation Start Scan dialog box.

Any ongoing scan operation can be stopped by clicking Cancel.

When the scan is completed, click OK in the Scan Completed dialog box. The OTDR scan results are displayed in the graph having Distance (km or mile) on the x-axis and Loss (dB) on the y-axis. To zoom in or zoom out of a graph, see DLP-G785 Zoom In/Out with Graphs.

Step 8

Click Baseline to set the last scan result as a baseline and click Yes in the Baseline Setting dialog box.

The baseline scan is indicated by blue color and the last scan is indicated by red color on the graph. When a baseline scan is set, you can compare the last scan result with the baseline scan values in the graph.

Step 9

Click Refresh to refresh the scan details.

Step 10

Click Details to display the details of the parameters of the baseline scan and the last scan.

Step 11

Choose File > Export to export the measurement results as an HTML, CSV, TSV or SOR file.

Step 12

Save the HTML, CSV, or SOR file format.

Step 13

Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

  8. Click the ORL tab to view the baseline and last scan values of the measured ORL.
  9. Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

DETAILED STEPS


Step 1

In the node view, click the Maintenance > DWDM > OTDR tabs.

Step 2

From the OTDR Port drop-down list, choose the port on which you want to perform the scan.

Step 3

Click Line Rx or Line Tx tabs.

Step 4

Click Reflection or the Insertion Loss tabs.

Step 5

Right-click Location [km] Accuracy (km) row in the Reflection table or the Insertion Loss table and choose Scan for Event to start an OTDR event scan.

Step 6

Click Yes in the Start Event Scan dialog box.

When the event scan is completed, the OTDR event scan result is displayed on the graph. The value in the Sector drop-down list changes to Event Scan Result. To zoom in or zoom out of a graph, see DLP-G785 Zoom In/Out with Graphs.

Note 
When OTDR measures variation of reflection or insertion loss higher than the threshold values set in the Provisioning > WDM-ANS > OTDR > Side > Baseline Thresholds tab, the corresponding alarms are raised in CTC. This check is performed only on the detected events. The corresponding row in the Last Scan column turns yellow.

Scan on event executes an Expert Scan with a specific set of parameters defined for any kind of fiber plant. Since the set of parameters computed does not take into account the specific characteristics of the fiber plant, it is possible that the event under analysis is not found and reported in the event table associated to the scan on the event panel even if the graph is correctly reported. To overcome the issue, follow this procedure:

  1. Copy the Scan on Event scan parameters from the OTDR details panel.

  2. Configure Expert Scan using copied parameters as the starting point. Execute several Expert Scans by incrementing the following parameters, until the event is correctly identified and the related amplitude is reported in the table.

    • Capture Offset (start point)

    • Capture Length (end point)

    • Pulse Width

    • Resolution

Step 7

Click the Fiber End tab to view the baseline and last scan values of EOF (End of Fiber).

OTDR identifies EOF as a fiber termination event along with reflection or loss event. EOF is checked along the life of the fiber plant to check for possible changes to fiber length. If the fiber length is higher than 20dB or 100 km, it is not guaranteed to find the EOF.

Note 

Fiber end accuracy is not available for legacy scan.

Step 8

Click the ORL tab to view the baseline and last scan values of the measured ORL.

Step 9

Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

DETAILED STEPS


Step 1

In node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Maintenance > DWDM > Side Power Monitoring > Optical Side n tabs, where n = A, B, C,D.

Step 2

On the Side Power Monitoring tab, view the bar charts of the input and output spectrum on each optical side of the node.

The IN bar graph displays the optical spectrum at the input port (LINE-RX) of the side in the direction from the fiber to the node provided the OCM functionality is available on this port else the graph displays the aggregate signal spectral distribution on the first port in the signal flow (indicated in the title of the bar chart) that is downstream of the LINE-RX port where an OCM measurement is available (For example, in node using a booster and 40-SMR1-C card, the measurement is done on the EXP port of the 40-SMR1-C card).

The OUT bar graph displays the optical spectrum at the output port (LINE-TX) of the side in the direction from the node to the fiber provided the OCM functionality is available on this port else the graph displays the aggregate signal spectral distribution on the first port (indicated in the title of the bar chart) that is upstream of the LINE-TX port where an OCM measurement is available.

Note 

Depending on the side layout, the LINE-TX port (output) and the LINE-RX port (input) of the card facing the fiber cannot measure the optical spectrum in a reliable manner if the OCM functionality is not available on these ports.

Note 

The DWDM cards supporting this feature are designed to handle minor differences in output power. The output power does not need to be exactly the same for all wavelengths.

Step 3

If needed, click Refresh to update the display.

  2. Provision the following parameters, as needed:
  3. Click Apply.
  4. Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

DETAILED STEPS


Step 1

In node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > OSI > TARP > Config tabs.

Step 2

Provision the following parameters, as needed:

  • TARP PDUs L1 Propagation—If checked (default), TARP Type 1 PDUs that are received by the node and are not excluded by the LDB are propagated to other NEs within the Level 1 OSI area. (Type 1 PDUs request a protocol address that matches a target identifier [TID] within a Level 1 routing area.) The propagation does not occur if the NE is the target of the Type 1 PDU, and PDUs are not propagated to the NE from which the PDU was received

    Note 

    The TARP PDUs L1 Propagation parameter is not used when the Node Routing Area (Provisioning > OSI > Main Setup tab) is set to End System.

  • TARP PDUs L2 Propagation—If checked (default), TARP Type 2 PDUs received by the node that are not excluded by the LDB are propagated to other NEs within the Level 2 OSI areas. (Type 2 PDUs request a protocol address that matches a TID within a Level 2 routing area.) The propagation does not occur if the NE is the target of the Type 2 PDU, and PDUs are not propagated to the NE from which the PDU was received.

    Note 

    The TARP PDUs L2 Propagation parameter is only used when the Node Routing Area is provisioned to Intermediate System Level 1/Level 2

  • TARP PDUs Origination—If checked (default), the node performs all TARP origination functions including:

    • TID to Network Service Access Point (NSAP) resolution requests (originate TARP Type 1 and Type 2 PDUs)

    • NSAP to TID requests (originate Type 5 PDUs)

    • TARP address changes (originate Type 4 PDUs)

    Note 

    TARP Echo and NSAP to TID are not supported.

  • TARP Data Cache—If checked (default), the node maintains a TARP data cache (TDC). The TDC is a database of TID-to-NSAP pairs created from TARP Type 3 PDUs that are received by the node and modified by TARP Type 4 PDUs (TID-to-NSAP updates or corrections). TARP 3 PDUs are responses to Type 1 and Type 2 PDUs. The TDC can also be populated with static entries entered on the TARP > Static TDC tab.

    Note 

    This parameter is only used when the TARP PDUs Origination parameter is enabled.

  • L2 TARP Data Cache—If checked (default), the TIDs and NSAPs of NEs originating Type 2 requests are added to the TDC before the node propagates the requests to other NEs.

    Note 

    The L2 TARP Data Cache parameter is designed for Intermediate System Level 1/Level 2 nodes that are connected to other Intermediate System Level 1/Level 2 nodes. Enabling the parameter for Intermediate System Level 1 nodes is not recommended.

  • LDB—If checked (default), enables the TARP loop detection buffer. The LDB prevents TARP PDUs from being sent more than once on the same subnet.

    Note 

    The LDB parameter is not used if the Node Routing Mode is provisioned to End System or if the TARP PDUs L1 Propagation parameter is not enabled.

  • LAN TARP Storm Suppression—If checked (default), enables TARP storm suppression. This function prevents redundant TARP PDUs from being unnecessarily propagated across the LAN network.

  • Send Type 4 PDU on Startup—If checked, a TARP Type 4 PDU is originated during the initial ONS 15454 startup. Type 4 PDUs indicate that a TID or NSAP change has occurred at the NE. (The default setting is not enabled.)

  • Type 4 PDU Delay—Sets the amount of time that will pass before the Type 4 PDU is generated when Send Type 4 PDU on Startup is enabled. 60 seconds is the default. The range is 0 to 255 seconds.

    Note 

    The Send Type 4 PDU on Startup and Type 4 PDU Delay parameters are not used if the TARP PDUs Origination parameter is not enabled.

  • LDB Entry—Sets the TARP loop detection buffer timer. The LDB buffer time is assigned to each LDB entry for which the TARP sequence number (tar-seq) is zero. The default is 5 minutes. The range is 1 to 10 minutes.

  • LDB Flush—Sets the frequency period for flushing the LDB. The default is 5 minutes. The range is 0 to 1440 minutes.

  • T1—Sets the amount of time to wait for a response to a Type 1 PDU. Type 1 PDUs seek a specific NE TID within an OSI Level 1 area. The default is 15 seconds. The range is 0 to 3600 seconds.

  • T2—Sets the amount of time to wait for a response to a Type 2 PDU. TARP Type 2 PDUs seek a specific NE TID value within OSI Level 1 and Level 2 areas. The default is 25 seconds. The range is 0 to 3600 seconds.

  • T3—Sets the amount of time to wait for an address resolution request. The default is 40 seconds. The range is 0 to 3600 seconds.

  • T4—Sets the amount of time to wait for an error recovery. This timer begins after the T2 timer expires without finding the requested NE TID. The default is 20 seconds. The range is 0 to 3600 seconds.

Note 

The T1, T2, and T4 timers are not used if TARP PDUs Origination is not enabled.

Step 3

Click Apply.

  2. In node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > OSI > Main Setup tabs.
  3. Choose one of the following node routing modes:
  4. Although Cisco does not recommend changing the LSP buffer sizes, you can adjust the buffers in the following fields:
  5. Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

DETAILED STEPS


Step 1

Verify the following:

  • All L1/L2 virtual routers on the NE must reside in the same area. This means that all neighboring virtual routers must have at least one common area address.

  • For OSI L1/L2 to ES routing mode changes, only one L1/L2 virtual router and no more than one subnet can be configured.

  • For OSI L1 to ES routing mode changes, only one L1 virtual router and no more than one subnet can be configured.

Step 2

In node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > OSI > Main Setup tabs.

Step 3

Choose one of the following node routing modes:

  • End System—The ONS 15454 performs OSI IS functions. It communicates with IS and ES nodes that reside within its OSI area. It depends upon an IS L1/L2 node to communicate with IS and ES nodes that reside outside its OSI area.

  • Intermediate System Level 1—The ONS 15454 performs IS functions. It communicates with IS and ES nodes that reside within its OSI area. It does not communicate with IS nodes that reside in other OSI areas except through an IS L1/L2 node residing in its own area

  • Intermediate System Level 1/Level 2—The ONS 15454 performs IS functions. It communicates with IS and ES nodes that reside within its OSI area. It also communicates with IS L1/L2 nodes that reside in other OSI areas. Before choosing this option, verify the following:

    • The node is connected to another IS Level 1/Level 2 node that resides in a different OSI area.

    • The node is connected to all nodes within its area that are provisioned as IS L1/L2.

Note 

Changing a routing mode should be carefully considered. Additional information about OSI ESs and ISs and the ES-IS and IS-IS protocols are provided in the "Management Network Connectivity" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Configuration Guide.

Step 4

Although Cisco does not recommend changing the LSP buffer sizes, you can adjust the buffers in the following fields:

  • L1 LSP Buffer Size—Adjusts the Level 1 link state PDU buffer size.

  • L2 LSP Buffer Size—Adjusts the Level 2 link state PDU buffer size.

    • GRE—Creates a generic routing encapsulation (GRE). GRE tunnels add the CLNS header and a GRE header to the IP packets.

      The Cisco proprietary tunnel is slightly more efficient than the GRE tunnel because it does not add the GRE header to each IP packet. The two tunnel types are not compatible. Most Cisco routers support the Cisco IP tunnel, while only a few support both GRE and Cisco IP tunnels. You generally should create Cisco IP tunnels if you are tunneling between two Cisco routers or between a Cisco router and an ONS node.

      Caution 

      Always verify that the IP-over-CLNS tunnel type you choose is supported by the equipment at the other end of the tunnel.

  • IP Address—Enter the IP address of the IP-over-CLNS tunnel destination.

  • IP Mask—Enter the IP address subnet mask of the IP-over-CLNS destination.

  • OSPF Metric—Enter the Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) metric for sending packets across the IP-over-CLNS tunnel. The OSPF metric, or cost, is used by OSPF routers to calculate the shortest path. The default is 110. Normally, it is not changed unless you are creating multiple tunnel routes and want to prioritize routing by assigning different metrics.

  • NSAP Address—Enter the destination NE or OSI router NSAP address.

Onsite/Remote

Onsite or remote

Security Level

Superuser only


Caution

Changing the node IP address, subnet mask, or IIOP listener port causes the TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE cards to reboot. If Ethernet circuits using Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) originate or terminate on E-Series Ethernet cards installed in the node, circuit traffic will be lost for several minutes while the spanning trees reconverge. Other circuits are not affected by TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE reboots.



Note

If the node contains TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE cards and is in default (repeater) mode, the node IP address refers to the TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE front-access TCP/IP (LAN) port as well as the backplane LAN port. If the node is in secure mode, this task only changes the front-access port IP address only. If the node is in secure mode and has been locked, the IP address cannot be changed unless the lock is removed by Cisco Technical Support.


SUMMARY STEPS

The idle period time range is 0 and 16 hours, and 0 and 59 minutes. The user is logged out after the idle user timeout period is reached.

Step 3

In the User Lockout area, you can modify the following:

  • Failed Logins Before Lockout—The number of failed login attempts a user can make before the user is locked out from the node. You can choose a value between 0 and 10.

  • Manual Unlock by Superuser—Allows a user with Superuser privileges to manually unlock a user who has been locked out from a node.

  • Lockout Duration—Sets the amount of time the user will be locked out after a failed login. You can choose a value between 0 and 10 minutes, and 0 and 55 seconds (in five-second intervals).

Note 

Manual Unlock by Superuser and Lockout Duration are mutually exclusive.

Step 4

In the Password Change area, you can modify the following:

  • Prevent Reusing Last [ ] Passwords—Choose a value between 1 and 10 to set the number of different passwords that the user must create before they can reuse a password.

  • New Password must Differ from the Old Password—Choose the number of characters that must differ between the old and new password. The default number is 1. The range is 1 to 5.

  • Cannot Change New Password for [ ] days—If checked, prevents users from changing their password for the specified period. The range is 20 to 95 days.

  • Require Password Change on First Login to New Account—If checked, requires users to change their password the first time they log in to their account.

  • Minimum Length—The minimum length can be set to two, four, six, eight, ten, or twelve characters. If two is chosen as the minimum length, the password can contain any two characters.

    In release 9.8.1, for non-FIPS and CC mode node, the minimum password length cannot be configured to 15 characters, even though the option is listed. In FIPS and CC mode node, the minimum password length for newly created users must be 15 characters.

Step 5

To require users to change their password at periodic intervals, check the Enforce Password Aging check box in the Password Aging area. If checked, provision the following parameters:

  • Aging Period—Sets the amount of time that must pass before the user must change his or her password for each security level: RETRIEVE, MAINTENANCE, PROVISIONING, SUPERUSER, SECURITY USER, SECURITY SUPER USER, and ROOT15 USER. The range is 20 to 95 days.

  • Warning Period—Sets the number of days the user will be warned to change his or her password for each security level. The range is 2 to 20 days.

Step 6

In the Other area, you can provision the following:

  • Single Session Per User—If checked, limits users to one login session at one time.

  • Disable Inactive User—If checked, disables users who do not log in to the node for the period of time specified in the Inactive Duration box. The Inactive Duration range is 1 to 99 days.

Step 7

Click Apply. Confirm that the changes appear.
