Table 1. New and Changed Features - R6.5.1
Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) is a line card supported in NCS 1001. The line card contains 2x bidirectional OTDRs
and 2x filter that combines C-band, OSC, and OTDR filters and splits OSC and OTDR. Each internal OTDR can perform measurements
on both TX and RX fiber by using an internal optical switch. OTDR line card is connected to the OSC port on the optical amplifier.
The OTDR measurement is available in a .SOR file and it can be exported from NCS 1001 using SCP, TFTP, and SFTP. The OTDR
line card can be inserted in any slot of NCS 1001.
The Span Loss Calculation is an automatic calculation of span losses between NCS 1001 systems. This feature applies to each
topology such as protected or non-protected,linear with or without ILA nodes in the middle.
The Span Loss Calculation is a software functionality available for OTS controller so it can be statically enabled or disabled
through hw-module configuration.Span loss calculation is made using the TX and RX total power on EDFA ports.
USB Automount feature allows the user to read from or write files and folders onto the USB device. The user can mount and
unmount the USB device both in sysadmin-vm and XR. The mounted USB device can be accessed as disk2: file system.
There are passive units that are part of NCS1001 hardware configuration. It is possible to have information about these passive
units as soon as they are connected with a proper USB cable through one of the four available USB ports on the controller
card of the box itself.
In this case their basic parameters are displayed in the output of “show inventory” command by XR or admin session.
