Note: The terms "Unidirectional Path Switched Ring" and "UPSR" may appear in Cisco literature. These terms do not refer to using Cisco ONS 15xxx products in a unidirectional path switched ring configuration. Rather, these terms, as well as "Path Protected Mesh Network" and "PPMN," refer generally to Cisco's path protection feature, which may be used in any topological network configuration. Cisco does not recommend using its path protection feature in any particular topological network configuration.

  5. Click the Circuits tab.
  6. Choose the circuits you want to delete, then click Delete.
  7. In the Delete Circuits confirmation dialog box, check one or both of the following, as needed:
    • Change drop port admin state-Choose the administrative state for the drop ports:
      • IS-Puts the circuit cross-connects in the In-Service and Normal (IS-NR) service state.
      • OOS,DSBLD-Puts the circuit cross-connects in the Out-of-Service and Management, Disabled (OOS-MA,DSBLD) service state. Traffic is not passed on the circuit. If the circuit is not the same size as the port or the only circuit using the port, CTC will not change the port service state.
      • IS,AINS-Puts the circuit cross-connects in the Out-of-Service and Autonomous, Automatic In-Service (OOS-AU,AINS) service state. When the connections receive a valid signal, the cross-connect service states automatically change to IS-NR.
      • OOS,MT-Puts the circuit cross-connects in the Out-of-Service and Management, Maintenance (OOS-MA,MT) service state. This service state does not interrupt traffic flow and allows loopbacks to be performed on the circuit, but suppresses alarms and conditions. Use the OOS,MT administrative state for circuit testing or to suppress circuit alarms temporarily. Change the administrative state to IS; OOS; or IS,AINS when testing is complete.
    Note: CTC will not allow you to change a drop port service state from IS-NR to OOS-MA,DSBLD. You must first change a port to the OOS-MA,MT service state before putting it in the OOS-MA,DSBLD service state.
    • Notify when completed-If checked, the CTC Alerts confirmation dialog box indicates when all circuit source/destination ports are out of service (OOS) and the circuit is deleted. During this time, you cannot perform other CTC functions. If you are deleting many circuits, you might need to wait a few minutes for confirmation. Circuits are deleted whether or not this check box is checked.
    Note: The CTC Alerts dialog box will not automatically open to show a deletion error unless you checked All alerts or Error alerts only in the CTC Alerts check box. For more information, see the "DLP-A327 Configure the CTC Alerts Dialog Box for Automatic Popup" task. If the CTC Alerts dialog box is not set to open automatically with a notification, the red triangle inside the CTC Alerts toolbar icon indicates that a notification exists.

    4. Click Refresh. Performance monitoring appears in the interval selected synchronized with the time of day.
    5. View the Prev column to find PM counts for the latest selected interval.
      Each monitored performance parameter has corresponding threshold values for the latest time period. If the value of the counter exceeds the threshold value for a particular selected interval, a threshold crossing alert (TCA) is raised. The number represents the counter value for each specific performance monitoring parameter.
    6. View the Prev-n columns to find PM counts for the previous intervals.
      If a complete count over the selected interval is not possible, the value appears with a yellow background. For example, if you selected the 1-day interval, an incomplete or incorrect count can be caused by monitoring for less than 24 hours after the counter started, changing node timing settings, changing the time zone settings, replacing a card, resetting a card, or changing port service states. When the problem is corrected, the subsequent 1-day interval appears with a white background.

    1. From the Alarm Type drop-down list, indicate whether the event will be triggered by the rising threshold, falling threshold, or both the rising and falling thresholds.
    2. From the Sample Type drop-down list, choose either Relative or Absolute. Relative restricts the threshold to use the number of occurrences in the user-set sample period. Absolute sets the threshold to use the total number of occurrences, regardless of time period.
    3. Type in an appropriate number of seconds for the Sample Period field.
    4. Type in the appropriate number of occurrences for the Rising Threshold field.
      For a rising type of alarm, the measured value must move from below the falling threshold to above the rising threshold. For example, if a network is running below a rising threshold of 1000 collisions every 15 minutes and a problem causes 1001 collisions in 15 minutes, the excess occurrences trigger an alarm.
    5. Enter the appropriate number of occurrences in the Falling Threshold field. In most cases a falling threshold is set lower than the rising threshold.
      A falling threshold is the counterpart to a rising threshold. When the number of occurrences is above the rising threshold and then drops below a falling threshold, it resets the rising threshold. For example, when the network problem that caused 1001 collisions in 15 minutes subsides and creates only 799 collisions in 15 minutes, occurrences fall below a falling threshold of 800 collisions. This resets the rising threshold so that if network collisions again spike over a 1000 per 15-minute period, an event again triggers when the rising threshold is crossed. An event is triggered only the first time a rising threshold is exceeded (otherwise, a single network problem might cause a rising threshold to be exceeded multiple times and cause a flood of events).
    6. Click OK.
    7. Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

    2. Click Create.
    3. In the Suggestion dialog box, click OK.
    4. In the Create BLSR dialog box, set the BLSR properties:
    • Ring Type-Choose four-fiber.
    • Ring Name-Assign a ring name. You must use the same ring name for each node in the BLSR. Any alphanumeric character string is permissible, and upper and lower case letters can be combined. Do not use the character string "All" in either upper or lower case letters; this is a TL1 keyword and will be rejected. Do not choose a name that is already assigned to another BLSR.
    • Node ID-Choose a Node ID from the drop-down list (0 through 31). The Node ID identifies the node to the BLSR. Nodes in the same BLSR must have unique Node IDs.
    • Reversion time-Set the amount of time that will pass before the traffic reverts to the original working path. The default is 5 minutes. All nodes in a BLSR must have the same reversion time setting.
    • West Line-Assign the west BLSR port for the node from the drop-down list.
    The east and west ports must match the fiber connections and DCC terminations set up in the NTP-A40 Provision BLSR Nodes.
    • East Line-Assign the east BLSR port for the node from the drop-down list.
    • Span Reversion-Set the amount of time that will pass before the traffic reverts to the original working path following a span reversion. The default is 5 minutes. Span reversion can be set to Never. If you set a reversion time, the times must be the same for both ends of the span. That is, if Node A's west fiber is connected to Node B's east port, the Node A west span reversion time must be the same as the Node B east span reversion time. To avoid reversion time mismatches, Cisco recommends that you use the same span reversion time throughout the ring.
    • West Protect-Assign the west BLSR port that will connect to the west protect fiber from the drop-down list.
    • East Protect-Assign the east BLSR port that will connect to the east protect fiber from the drop-down list.
    1. Click OK.
    2. Note: Some or all of the following alarms will appear until all the BLSR nodes are provisioned: E-W-MISMATCH, RING-MISMATCH, APSCIMP, APSCDFLTK, and BLSROSYNC. The alarms will clear after you configure all the nodes in the BLSR.
    3. From the View menu, choose Go to Other Node.
    4. In the Select Node dialog box, choose the next node that you want to add to the BLSR.
    5. Repeat Steps 1 through 7 at each node that you want to add to the BLSR. When all nodes have been added, continue with Step 9.
    6. From the View menu, choose Go to Network View. After 10 to 15 seconds, verify the following:

    Note: CTC will not allow you to change a port service state from IS-NR to OOS-MA,DSBLD. You must first change a port to the OOS-MA,MT service state before putting it in the OOS-MA,DSBLD service state.

    Service State

    (Display only) Identifies the autonomously generated state that gives the overall condition of the port. Service states appear in the format: Primary State-Primary State Qualifier, Secondary State.

    • IS-NR-The port is fully operational and performing as provisioned.
    • OOS-AU,AINS-The port is out-of-service, but traffic is carried. Alarm reporting is suppressed. The ONS node monitors the ports for an error-free signal. After an error-free signal is detected, the port stays in OOS-AU,AINS state for the duration of the soak period. After the soak period ends, the port service state changes to IS-NR.
    • OOS-MA,DSBLD-The port is out-of-service and unable to carry traffic.
    • OOS-MA,MT-The port is out-of-service for maintenance. Alarm reporting is suppressed, but traffic is carried and loopbacks are allowed.

    Parameter Description Options

    Transport Mode

    Sets the encapsulation mode.

    • SONET: (Default for DS1) Transports DS1s in VT1.5s and E1s in VT2s. In AU4 mode, only one STS-3c circuit shall be allowed.
    • AU4: (Default for E1) Transports DS1s and E1s in a structured VC4 payload (STS-3c).

    Note: Switching from one transport mode to another is not allowed if a port is in a circuit, in service, or selected as a timing reference for the NE.

    Operating Mode

    Sets the port usage. The restrictions on switching between these selections is based on existing circuits, ports being in service, and port usage as an NE reference source.

    • All DS1: (Default) All 56 ports are used as DS1 ports. Ports 1 to 28 have retiming capability. Any of the 56 ports can be selected to provide timing reference to the NE.
    • All E1: All 56 ports are used as E1 ports. Ports 1 to 21 have retiming capability. Any of the 56 ports can be selected to provide a timing reference to the NE.

    Retiming Enabled

    When checked, retimes the transmit clock to the clock reference of the NE, removing the asynchronous relationship between electrical line and SONET transport time domains for the electrical path. If the Operating Mode is All DS1, Retiming Enabled is checked and cannot be changed.

    When not checked for E1 mode, leaves the port as "through-timed," which means that the transmit clock is extracted from the DS1/E1 data from the SONET payload coming from the backplane.

    • On (checked, default)
    • Off (unchecked)

    Port to VT Mapping

    Selects the sequence in which DS1 ports are mapped into the VT1.5s within an STS-1. This setting applies to a group of DS1 ports associated with the same STS-1.

    • GR 253 interleaves the DS1 ports into the VT1.5 (DS1-14 compatible). In this mapping, sequential DS1 port numbers are mapped to interleave the 7 VT groups of VT1.5s. Interleaving by VT group essentially means that the DS1 ports follow the order of transmission of the VT1.5s, as indicated in Telcordia GR-253.
    • INDUSTRY maps sequential DS1 port numbers to fill each VT group in order. In this mapping, ports in sequential progression are packed into VTs filling an entire VT group before moving on to the next VT group.
    Note: The threshold value appears after the circuit is created.

    DLP-A377 Provision Section DCC Terminations

    Purpose

    This task creates the SONET data communications channel (DCC) terminations required for alarms, administration data, signal control information, and messages. 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, 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.

    Provisioning or higher

    Caution! If the ONS 15454 is configured as an OSI IS Level 1 or IS Level 1/Level 2 node and you are provisioning an OSI-only (LAP-D) SDCC to a third party NE, verify that the maximum area routing parameter on the vender NE is set to 3 before you start this task.

    Note: When SDCC is provisioned, an LDCC termination is allowed on the same port, but is not recommended. Using SDCC and LDCC on the same port is only needed during a software upgrade if the software version does not support LDCC. You can provision SDCCs and LDCCs on different ports in the same node.

    1. In node view, click the Provisioning > Comm Channels > SDCC tabs.
    2. Click Create.
    3. In the Create SDCC Terminations dialog box, click the ports where you want to create the SDCC termination. To select more than one port, press the Shift key or the Ctrl key.
      Note: SDCC refers to the Section DCC, which is used for ONS 15454 DCC terminations. The SONET Line DCCs and the Section DCC (when not used as a DCC termination by the ONS 15454) can be provisioned as DCC tunnels. See the "DLP-A313 Create a DCC Tunnel" task.
    4. In the Port Admin State area, click Set to IS to put the port in service.
    5. Verify that the Disable OSPF on SDCC Link is unchecked.
    6. If the SDCC 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-A374 Change a Section DCC Termination" task.
    7. In the Layer 3 box, perform one of the following:
      • Check the IP box only-if the SDCC is between the ONS 15454 and another ONS node and only ONS nodes reside on the network. The SDCC will use PPP (point-to-point protocol).
      • Check the IP and OSI boxes-if the SDCC is between the ONS 15454 and another ONS node and third party NEs that use the OSI protocol stack are on the same network. The SDCC will use PPP.
      • Check OSI box only-if the SDCC is between an ONS node and a third party NE that uses the OSI protocol stack. The SDCC 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.
  • 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 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 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.
    • IS-IS Cost-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.
  • 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
    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 SDCC.
    • 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: EOC (DCC Termination Failure) and LOS (Loss of Signal) alarms appear until you create all network DCC terminations and put the DCC termination OC-N ports in service.
    3. Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

    DLP-A378 Provision Line DCC Terminations

    Purpose

    This task creates the line data communications channel (LDCC) terminations required for alarms, administration data, signal control information, and messages. LDCCs are three-times larger than SDCCs. 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, 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.

    DLP-A384 Add a Member to a VCAT Circuit

    Purpose

    This task adds a member to one of the following VCAT circuits:

    • Software link capacity adjustment scheme (SW-LCAS) VCAT circuits on FC_MR-4 (enhanced mode) or CE-1000-4 cards
    • Non-LCAS and LCAS circuits on CE-100T-8 cards

    Adding a member to a VCAT circuit changes the size of the circuit. The new members use the VCAT member source, destination, and routing preference (common fiber or split routing) specified during the VCAT circuit creation procedure.

    Tools/Equipment

    FC_MR-4 card (enhanced mode) or CE-Series card.

    Prerequisite Procedures

    DLP-A60 Log into CTC

    VCAT circuits must exist on the network. See the NTP-A264 Create an Automatically Routed VCAT Circuit or the NTP-A265 Create a Manually Routed VCAT Circuit.

    Required/As Needed

    As needed

    Onsite/Remote

    Onsite or remote

    Security Level

    Provisioning or higher

    Note: This task optionally uses automatic routing. Automatic routing is not available if both the Automatic Circuit Routing NE default and the Network Circuit Automatic Routing Overridable NE default are set to FALSE. For a full description of these defaults see the "Network Element Defaults" appendix in the Cisco ONS 15454 Reference Manual.

    Note: Adding a member to a non-LCAS VCAT circuit can be service affecting.

    Note: Adding a member to SW-LCAS or LCAS VCAT circuits in the IS-NR, OOS-AU,AINS, or OOS-MA,MT service state could be service affecting. Cisco recommends using the OOS-MA,OOG service state when adding new members. You can put the member in the desired state after adding the member.

    Note: You cannot add members to VCAT circuits that have a source or destination on an ML-Series or FC_MR-4 (line rate mode) card.

    1. In node or network view, click the Circuits tab.
    2. Click the VCAT circuit that you want to edit, then click Edit.
    3. Click the Members tab.
    4. If you want to add a member to a non-LCAS VCAT circuit, complete the following substeps. If you want to add a member to a SW-LCAS or LCAS VCAT circuit, skip this step and continue with Step 5.
      1. Select a member with a VCAT State of In Group. The In Group state indicates that a member has cross-connects in the IS-NR; OOS-MA,AINS; or OOS-MA,MT service states.
      2. Click Edit Member.
      3. In the Edit Member Circuit window, click the State tab.
      4. View the cross-connect service state in the CRS Service State column. You will need this information when choosing the new member state.
        Cross-connects of all In Group non-LCAS members must be in the same service state. If all existing members are in the Out of Group VCAT state, which for non-LCAS members is the OOS-MA,DSBLD service state, you can choose any service state for the new member.
      5. From the File menu, choose Close to return to the Edit Circuit window.
    5. Click Add Member. The Add Member button is enabled if the VCAT circuit has sufficient bandwidth for an added member.
    6. Define the number of members and member attributes:
      • Number of members to add-Choose the number of members to add from the drop-down list. If the drop-down list does not show a number, the VCAT circuit has the maximum number of members allowed. The number of members allowed depends on the source and destination card and the existing size of the circuit. For more information on the number of members allowed for a card, refer to the "Circuits and Tunnels" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 Reference Manual.
      • New Circuit Size-(Display only) Automatically updates based on the number of added members.
      • Create cross-connects only (TL1-like)-Check this box if you want to create one or more cross-connects to complete a signal path for TL1-generated circuits. If this box is checked, you cannot assign a name to the circuit.
      • State-To add a non-LCAS member to a VCAT with In Group members, choose the state you viewed in Step 4. To add a non-LCAS member to a VCAT with only Out of Group members, choose any of the following states. To add SW-LCAS or LCAS members, Cisco recommends the OOS,OOG state.
        • IS-Puts the member cross-connects in the IS-NR service state.
        • OOS,DSBLD-Puts the member cross-connects in the OOS-MA,DSBLD service state. Traffic is not passed on the circuit.
        • IS,AINS-Puts the member cross-connects in the OOS-AU,AINS service state and suppresses alarms and conditions. When the connections receive a valid signal, the service state automatically changes to IS-NR.
        • OOS,MT-Puts the member cross-connects in the OOS-MA,MT service state. The maintenance state does not interrupt traffic flow; it suppresses alarms and conditions and allows loopbacks to be performed on the circuit. Use OOS,MT for circuit testing or to suppress circuit alarms temporarily. Change the administrative state to IS; IS,AINS; or OOS,DSBLD when testing is complete. See the "DLP-A437 Change a VCAT Member Service State" task.
        • OOS,OOG-(LCAS and SW-LCAS VCAT circuits only) Puts VCAT member cross-connects in the Out-of-Service and Management, Out-of-Group (OOS-MA,OOG) service state. This administrative state is used to put a member circuit out of the group and to stop sending traffic.
        For additional information about circuit service states, refer to the "Circuits and Tunnels" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 Reference Manual.
    7. Click Next.
    8. To route the member(s) automatically, check Route Automatically. To manually route the members, leave Route Automatically unchecked.
    9. If you want to set preferences for individual members, complete the following in the Member Preferences area. To set identical preferences for all added members, skip this step and continue with Step 10.
      Note: Common fiber or split routing cannot be changed.
      • Number-Choose a number (between 1 and 256) from the drop-down list to identify the member.
      • Name-Type a unique name to identify the member. The name can be alphanumeric and up to 48 characters (including spaces). If you leave the field blank, CTC assigns a default name to the circuit.
      • Protection-Choose the member protection type:
        • Fully Protected-Routes the circuit on a protected path.
        • Unprotected-Creates an unprotected circuit.
        • PCA-Routes the member on a BLSR protection channel.
        • DRI-(Split routing only) Routes the member on a dual-ring interconnect circuit.
      • Node-Diverse Path-(Split routing only) Available for each member when Fully Protected is chosen.
    10. To set preferences for all members, complete the following in the Set Preferences for All Members area:
      • Protection-Choose the member protection type:
        • Fully Protected-Routes the circuit on a protected path.
        • Unprotected-Creates an unprotected circuit.
        • PCA-Routes the member on a BLSR protection channel.
        • DRI-(Split routing only) Routes the member on a dual-ring interconnect circuit.
      • Node-Diverse Path-(Split routing only) Available when Fully Protected is chosen.
    11. If you left Route Automatically unchecked in Step 8, click Next and complete the following substeps. If you checked Route Automatically in Step 8, continue with Step 12.
      1. In the Route Review/Edit area of the Circuit Creation wizard, choose the member to route from the Route Member number drop-down list.
      2. Click the source node icon if it is not already selected.
      3. Starting with a span on the source node, click the arrow of the span you want the member to travel. The arrow turns white. In the Selected Span area, the From and To fields provide span information.
      4. If you want to change the source, adjust the Source STS field; otherwise, continue with Substep 5.
      5. Click Add Span. The span is added to the Included Spans list and the span arrow turns blue.
      6. Repeat Substeps 3 through 5 until the member is provisioned from the source to the destination node through all intermediary nodes. If you selected Fully Protect Path, you must:
        • Add two spans for all path protection ring or unprotected portions of the member route from the source to the destination
        • Add one span for all BLSR or 1+1 portions of route from the source to the destination
        • For members routed on path protection dual-ring interconnect topologies, provision the working and protect paths as well as spans between the DRI nodes
      7. Repeat Substeps 1 through 6 for each member.
    12. If you checked Route Automatically in Step 8 and checked Review Route Before Creation, complete the following substeps. If not, continue with Step 13.
      1. Click Next.
      2. Review the circuit route. To add or delete a circuit span, choose a node on the circuit route. Blue arrows show the circuit route. Green arrows indicate spans that you can add. Click a span arrowhead, then click Include to include the span or Remove to remove the span.
      3. If the provisioned circuit does not reflect the routing and configuration you want, click Back to verify and change circuit information.
    13. Click Finish.
      Note: Adding members to a VCAT circuit may take several minutes depending on the complexity of the network and the number of members to be added.
    14. If you added an LCAS member, complete the following substeps:
      1. Click the Alarms tab and see if the VCAT Group Degraded (VCG-DEG) alarm appears. If it does appear, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide for the procedure to clear the alarm. If it does not, continue with Substep 2.
      2. Complete the "DLP-A437 Change a VCAT Member Service State" task to put the member in the IS service state.
    15. Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

    See the "DLP-A314 Assign a Name to a Port" task.

    Admin State

    Sets the port service state unless network conditions prevent the change.

    • IS-Puts the port in-service. The port service state changes to IS-NR.
    • IS,AINS-Puts the port in automatic in-service. The port service state changes to OOS-AU,AINS.
    • OOS,DSBLD-Removes the port from service and disables it. The port service state changes to OOS-MA,DSBLD.
    • OOS,MT-Removes the port from service for maintenance. The port service state changes to OOS-MA,MT.

    Note: CTC will not allow you to change a port service state from IS-NR to OOS-MA,DSBLD. You must first change a port to the OOS-MA,MT service state before putting it in the OOS-MA,DSBLD service state.

    Service State

    (Display only) Identifies the autonomously generated state that gives the overall condition of the port. Service states appear in the format: Primary State-Primary State Qualifier, Secondary State.

    • IS-NR-The port is fully operational and performing as provisioned.
    • OOS-AU,AINS-The port is out-of-service, but traffic is carried. Alarm reporting is suppressed. The ONS node monitors the ports for an error-free signal. After an error-free signal is detected, the port stays in OOS-AU,AINS state for the duration of the soak period. After the soak period ends, the port service state changes to IS-NR.
    • OOS-MA,DSBLD-The port is out-of-service and unable to carry traffic.
    • OOS-MA,MT-The port is out-of-service for maintenance. Alarm reporting is suppressed, but traffic is carried and loopbacks are allowed.

      Caution! Do not force the UBIC-H EIA onto the shelf if you feel strong resistance.

    3. Locate the three jack screws on the UBIC-H (Figure 20-24). Starting with any jack screw, tighten the thumb screw a few turns and move to the next one, turning each thumb screw a few turns at a time until all three screws are hand tight (Figure 20-25).
    4. Caution! Tightening the jack screws unevenly could cause damage to the UBIC-H connectors.
