  2. Gently push the cable with the 1.0/2.3 miniature coax connector down until the cable connector slides into the 1.0/2.3 miniature coax connector on the faceplate with a click.
    The MIC-C/T/P provides 1.0/2.3 miniature coax connectors that are used for timing input and output. The top connectors are for "A" (BITS-1) timing, and the bottom connectors are for "B" (BITS-2) timing. In each case, the left connector is the input and the right connector is the output. The input connectors for timing provide a 75-ohm termination. System cables are available that can convert timing clocks from 75 ohms to 100/120 ohms. Table 20-2 shows MIC-C/T/P pin assignments.

A high-impedance option (> 3 kilo-ohms or greater) is possible through a jumper on the MIC-C/T/P FMEC. You can change the top timing input to high impedance by removing the jumper on P3 on the MIC-C/T/P FMEC. You can change the bottom timing input to high impedance by removing the jumper on P2 of the MIC-C/T/P FMEC.
Note: Refer to ITU-T G.813 for rules about provisioning timing references.
  1. Connect the other end of the cable to the external source of the timing signal according to Table 20-2.
  2. Repeat Step 3 for each cable that is required.
  3. Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

Note: Rather than using the LAN connection port on the MIC-C/T/P, you can use the LAN connection port on the TCC2/TCC2P card if preferred. Use either the MIC-C/T/P connection or the TCC2/TCC2P card connection. You cannot use the LAN connection port on the MIC-C/T/P and the LAN connection port on the TCC2/TCC2P card simultaneously; however, it is possible for you to make a direct connection from a computer to the LAN connection port on the TCC2/TCC2P card while the LAN connection port on the MIC-C/T/P is in use as long as the computer connected directly to the TCC2/TCC2P card is not connected to the same LAN.

  1. Using 0.51 mm² or 0.64 mm² (#22 or #24 AWG) wire or CAT-5 UTP Ethernet cable, connect the wires to the RJ-45 connector according to Table 20-3 and crimp the connector to the cable.

DLP-D332 Install the TCC2/TCC2P Cards

Purpose

This task installs redundant TCC2/TCC2P cards. The first card you install in the ONS 15454 SDH must be a TCC2/TCC2P card, and it must initialize before you install any cross-connect or traffic cards.

Tools/Equipment

Two TCC2/TCC2P cards

Prerequisite Procedures

None

Required/As Needed

Required

Onsite/Remote

Onsite

Security Level

None

Note: When installing cards, allow each card to boot completely before installing the next card.

  1. Open the latches/ejectors of the TCC2/TCC2P card that you will install.
  2. Use the latches/ejectors to firmly slide the card along the guide rails until the card plugs into the receptacle at the back of the slot (Slot 7 or 11).
  3. Verify that the card is inserted correctly and close the latches/ejectors on the card.
    Note: It is possible to close the latches/ejectors when the card is not completely plugged into the backplane. Ensure that you cannot insert the card any further.
    If you insert a card into a slot provisioned for a different card, all LEDs turn off.
  4. Go to SubStep 1 to verify the LED activity on the TCC2 card. For the TCC2P card, go to SubStep 2.
    1. For the TCC2 card:
      • All LEDs turn on briefly. The red FAIL LED and the yellow ACT/STBY LED turn on for about 15 seconds.
      • The red FAIL LED and the green ACT/STBY LED turn on for about 40 seconds.
      • The red FAIL LED blinks for about 15 seconds.
      • The red FAIL LED turns on for about 15 seconds. All LEDs turn on for about 3 seconds before turning off for about 3 seconds.
      • Both green PWR LEDs turn on for 10 seconds. The PWR LEDs then turn red for 2 to 3 minutes before going to steady green.
      • While the PWR LEDs are red for two to three minutes, the ACT/STBY, MJ, and MN LEDs turn on, followed by the SNYC LED.
      • The boot up process is complete when the PWR LEDs turn green and the ACT/STBY remains on. (The ACT/STBY LED will be green if this is the first TCC2 card installed, and amber if this is the second TCC2 card installed.)
    Note: It might take up to 4 minutes for the A and B power alarms to clear.
    Note: Alarm LEDs might be on; disregard alarm LEDs until you are logged into CTC and can view the Alarms tab.
    Note: If you are logged into CTC, the SFTWDOWN alarm might appear as many as two times while the TCC2 card initializes. The alarm should clear after the card completely boots.
    Note: If the FAIL LED is on continuously, see the tip below about the TCC2 card automatic upload.
  1. For the TCC2P card:
    • All LEDs turn on briefly. The red FAIL LED, the yellow ACT/STBY LED, the green SYNC LED, and the green ACO LED turn on for about 15 seconds.
    • The red FAIL LED and the green ACT/STBY LED turn on for about 30 seconds.
    • The red FAIL LED blinks for about 3 seconds.
    • The red FAIL LED turns on for about 15 seconds.
    • The red FAIL LED blinks for about 10 seconds and then becomes solid.
    • All LEDs (including the CRIT, MAJ, MIN, REM, SYNC, and ACO LEDs) blink once and turn off for about 5 seconds.
    • Both green PWR LEDs turn on for 10 seconds. The PWR LEDs then turn red for 2 to 3 minutes before going to steady green. During this time, the ACT/STBY, MJ, and MN LEDs might turn on, followed by the SNYC LED briefly.
    • The boot up process is complete when the PWR LEDs turn green and the yellow ACT/STBY remains on. (The ACT/STBY LED will be green if this is the first TCC2 card installed, and yellow if this is the second TCC2 card installed.)
Note: It might take up to 3 minutes for the A and B power alarms to clear.
Note: Alarm LEDs might be on; disregard alarm LEDs until you are logged into CTC and can view the Alarms tab.
Note: If you are logged into CTC, the SFTWDOWN alarm might appear as many as two times while the TCC2P card initializes. The alarm should clear after the card completely boots.
Note: If the FAIL LED is on continuously, see the tip below about the TCC2P card automatic upload.
  1. Verify that the ACT/STBY LED is green for active if this is the first powered-up TCC2/TCC2P card installed, or yellow for standby if this is the second powered-up TCC2/TCC2P. The IP address, temperature of the node, and time of day appear on the LCD. The default time and date is 12:00 AM, January 1, 1970.
  2. The LCD cycles through the IP address (the default is 192.1.0.2), node name, and software version. Verify that the correct software version displays on the LCD. The software text string indicates the node type (SDH or SONET) and software release.(For example: SDH 07.00-05L-20.10 indicates it is an SDH software load, Release 7.00. The numbers following the release number do not have any significance.)
  3. If the LCD shows the correct software version, continue with Step 8. If the LCD does not show the correct software version, upgrade the software or remove the TCC2/TCC2P card and install a replacement card.
  4. Refer to the release-specific software upgrade document to replace the software. To exchange the TCC2/TCC2P card, see the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide.
  5. Repeat Steps 1 through 7 for the redundant TCC2/TCC2P card.
    Tip: If you install a standby TCC2/TCC2P card that has a different software version than the active TCC card, the newly installed standby TCC2/TCC2P card automatically copies the software version from the active TCC2/TCC2P card. You do not need to do anything in this situation, but the loading TCC2/TCC2P card does not boot up in the normal manner. When the standby card is first inserted, the LEDs follow most of the sequence listed in Step 4. However, after the red FAIL LED turns on for about 5 seconds, the FAIL LED and the ACT/STBY LED begin to flash alternately for up to 30 minutes while the new software loads onto the active TCC2/TCC2P card. After loading the new software, the upgraded TCC2/TCC2P card's LEDs repeat the sequence from Step 4, and the amber ACT/STBY LED turns on.
    Note: If you insert a card into a slot provisioned for a different card, all LEDs turn off.
    Note: Alarm LEDs might be on; disregard alarm LEDs until you are logged into CTC and can view the Alarms tab.
  6. Verify that the ACT/STBY LED is amber for standby.
  7. Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

Enable Distance Extension

If checked, allows additional distance by providing a GFP-T based flow control scheme. It enables the node to be a part of a Storage Area Network (SAN) with long-distance, remote nodes. If left unchecked, the remaining options are not available for editing. If Distance Extension is enabled, set the connected Fibre Channel switches to Interop or Open Fabric mode, depending on the Fibre Channel switch. By default, the FC_MR-4 card will interoperate with the Cisco MDS storage products.

-

Auto Detect Credits

If checked, enables the node to detect the transmit credits from a remote node. Credits are used for link flow control and for Extended Link Protocol (ELP) login frames between Fibre Channel/fiber connectivity (FICON) Switch E ports.

-

Credits Available

Sets the number of credits if an ELP login frame setting is missing or if the ELP login frame cannot be detected. Credits Available is editable only if Auto Detect Credits is unchecked.

Note: Longer distances between connected devices need more credits to compensate for the latency introduced by the long-distance link. The value should never be greater than the number of credits supported by the Fibre Channel/FICON port.

Numeric. 2 through 256, multiples of 2 only

Autoadjust GFP Buffer Threshold

If checked, guarantees the best utilization of the SONET/SDH transport in terms of bandwidth and latency.

-

  6. If the RS-DCC termination is to include a non-ONS node, check the Far End is Foreign check box. This automatically sets the far-end node IP address to 0.0.0.0, which means that any address can be specified by the far end. To change the default to a specific the IP address, see the "DLP-D359 Change a Regenerator-Section DCC Termination" task.
  7. In the Layer 3 box, perform one of the following:
    • Check the IP box only-if the RS-DCC is between the ONS 15454 SDH and another ONS node and only ONS nodes reside on the network. The RS-DCC will use Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP).
    • Check the IP and OSI boxes-if the RS-DCC is between the ONS 15454 SDH and another ONS node and third party NEs that use the OSI protocol stack are on the same network. The RS-DCC will use PPP.
    • Check OSI box only-if the RS-DCC is between an ONS node and a third party NE that uses the OSI protocol stack. The RS-DCC will use the LAP-D protocol.
    Note: If OSI is checked and IP is not checked (LAP-D), no network connections will appear in network view.
  8. If you checked OSI, complete the following steps. If you checked IP only, continue with Step 9.
    1. Click Next.
    2. Provision the following fields:
      • Router-Choose the OSI router.
      • ESH-Sets the End System Hello (ESH) propagation frequency. End system NEs transmit ESHs to inform other ESs and ISs about the NSAPs it serves. The default is 10 seconds. The range is 10 to 1000 seconds.
      • ISH-Sets the Intermediate System Hello (ISH) protocol data unit (PDU) propagation frequency. Intermediate system NEs send ISHs to other ESs and ISs to inform them about the IS NETs it serves. The default is 10 seconds. The range is 10 to 1000 seconds.
      • IIH-Sets the Intermediate System to Intermediate System Hello (IIH) PDU propagation frequency. The IS-IS Hello PDUs establish and maintain adjacencies between ISs. The default is 3 seconds. The range is 1 to 600 seconds.
      • Metric-Sets the cost for sending packets on the LAN subnet. The IS-IS protocol uses the cost to calculate the shortest routing path. The default metric cost for LAN subnets is 20. It normally should not be changed.
    3. If the OSI and IP boxes are checked, continue with Step 9. If only the OSI is checked, click Next and provision the following fields:
  • Mode-Choose one of the following:
  • AITS-(Default) Acknowledged Information Transfer Service. Does not exchange data until a logical connection between two LAP-D users is established. This service provides reliable data transfer, flow control, and error control mechanisms.
  • UITS-Unacknowledged Information Transfer Service. Transfers frames containing user data with no acknowledgement. The service does not guarantee that the data presented by one user will be delivered to another user, nor does it inform the user if the delivery attempt fails. It does not provide any flow control or error control mechanisms.
  • Role-Set to the opposite of the mode of the NE at the other end of the RS-DCC.
  • MTU-Maximum transmission unit. Sets the maximum number of octets in a LAP-D information frame. The range is 512 to 1500 octets. The default is 512. You normally should not change it.
  • T200-Sets the time between Set Asynchronous Balanced Mode (SABME) frame retransmissions. The default is 0.2 seconds. The range is 0.2 to 20 seconds.
  • T203-Provisions the maximum time between frame exchanges, that is, the trigger for transmission of the LAP-D "keep-alive" Receive Ready (RR) frames. The default is 10 seconds. The range is 4 to 120 seconds.
  1. Click Finish.
  2. Note: DCC Termination Failure (EOC) and LOS alarms appear until you create all network DCC terminations and put the DCC termination STM-N ports in service.
  3. Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

DLP-D364 Provision Multiplex-Section DCC Terminations

Purpose

This task creates the SDH MS-DCC terminations required for alarms, administration data, signal control information, and messages. MS-DCCs are three times larger than RS-DCCs. In this task, you can also set up the node so that it has direct IP access to a far-end non-ONS node over the DCC network. In addition, you can set up the node so that it has direct IP access to a far-end non-ONS node over the DCC network. In addition, this task can create an OSI subnetwork point of attachment on the DCC to allow the node to be networked with third party NEs that are based on the OSI protocol stack.

DISCOVERED

CTC created a circuit. All components are in place and a complete path exists from the circuit source to the circuit destination.

DELETING

CTC is deleting a circuit.

PARTIAL

A CTC-created circuit is missing a cross-connect or network span, a complete path from source to destination(s) does not exist, or an alarm interface panel (AIP) change occurred on one of the circuit nodes and the circuit is in need of repair. (AIPs store the node MAC address.)

In CTC, circuits are represented using cross-connects and network spans. If a network span is missing from a circuit, the circuit status is PARTIAL. However, a PARTIAL status does not necessarily mean a circuit traffic failure has occurred, because traffic might flow on a protect path.

Network spans are in one of two states: up or down. On CTC circuit and network maps, up spans are shown as green lines, and down spans are shown as gray lines. If a failure occurs on a network span during a CTC session, the span remains on the network map but its color changes to gray to indicate the span is down. If you restart your CTC session while the failure is active, the new CTC session cannot discover the span and its span line will not appear on the network map.

Subsequently, circuits routed on a network span that goes down will appear as DISCOVERED during the current CTC session, but they will appear as PARTIAL to users who log in after the span failure.

DISCOVERED_TL1

A TL1-created circuit or a TL1-like CTC-created circuit is complete. A complete path from source to destination(s) exists.

PARTIAL_TL1

A TL1-created circuit or a TL1-like CTC-created circuit is missing a cross-connect, and a complete path from source to destination(s) does not exist.

CONVERSION_PENDING

An existing circuit in a topology upgrade is set to this state. The circuit returns to the DISCOVERED state once the topology upgrade is complete. For more information about topology upgrades, see the "SDH Topologies and Upgrades" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual.

PENDING_MERGE

Any new circuits created to represent an alternate path in a topology upgrade are set to this status to indicate that it is a temporary circuit. These circuits can be deleted if a topology upgrade fails.For more information about topology upgrades, see the "SDH Topologies and Upgrades" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual.

DROP_PENDING

A circuit is set to this status when a new circuit drop is being added.

  • Source-The circuit source in the format: node/slot/port "port name" virtual_container/tributary_ unit_group/tributary_unit_group/virtual_container. (The port name appears in quotes.) Node and slot always appear; port "port name"/virtual_container/tributary_unit_group/tributary_unit group/virtual_container might appear, depending on the source card, circuit type, and whether a name is assigned to the port. For the STM64-XFP and MRC-12 cards, the port appears as port pluggable module (PPM)-port. If the circuit is a concatenated size (VC4-2c, VC4-4c, VC4-8c, etc.) VCs used in the circuit are indicated by an ellipsis, for example, "VC4-7.9" (VCs 7, 8, and 9) or VC4-10..12 (VC 10, 11, and 12).
  • Destination-The circuit destination in same format (node/slot/port "port name" virtual_container/tributary_unit_group/tributary_unit_group/virtual_container) as the circuit source.
  • # of VLANS-The number of VLANs used by an Ethernet circuit with end points on E-Series Ethernet cards in single card or multicard mode.
  • # of Spans-The number of internode links that compose the circuit. Right-clicking the column shows a shortcut menu from which you can choose Span Details to show or hide circuit span detail.
  • State-The circuit service state, which is an aggregate of its cross-connects. The service states are Unlocked, Locked, or Locked-partial. For more information about circuit service states, refer to the "Administrative and Service States" appendix of the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual.
  • Unlocked-All cross-connects are in service and operational.
  • Locked-All cross-connects are Locked-enabled,maintenance or Locked-enabled,disabled.
  • Locked-partial-At least one cross-connect is Unlocked-enabled and others are in the Locked-enabled,maintenance and/or Locked-enabled,disabled service states.

DLP-D371 View the MS-SPRing Squelch Table

Purpose

This task allows you to view the MS-SPRing squelch table for an ONS 15454 SDH MS-SPRing node. Squelching replaces traffic by the appropriate path AIS; it prevents traffic misconnections when a working channel service contends for access to a protection channel time slot carrying extra traffic. The table shows VC4s in the MS-SPRing squelched for every isolated node.

  1. In node view, click the Provisioning > MS-SPR tabs.
  2. Click Squelch Table. In the MS-SPR Squelch Table window, you can view the following information:
    • VC4 Number-Shows the MS-SPRing VC4 numbers.
    • West-Source-If traffic is received by the node on its west span, the MS-SPRing node ID of the source appears. (To view the MS-SPRing node IDs for all nodes in the ring, click Ring Map.)
    • West-Dest-If traffic is sent on the node's west span, the MS-SPRing node ID of the destination appears.
    • East-Source-If traffic is received by the node on its east span, the MS-SPRing node ID of the source appears.
    • East-Dest-If traffic is sent on the node's east span, the MS-SPRing node ID of the destination appears.
    Note: MS-SPRing squelching is performed on VC4s that carry high-order circuits only. VC4s carrying low-order or stitched Ethernet circuits do not have entries in the squelch table.
