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.

    • Protection-The type of circuit protection. See Table 21-1 for a list of protection types.
Table 21-1: Circuit Protection Types
Protection Type Description

1+1

The circuit is protected by a 1+1 protection group.

2F BLSR

The circuit is protected by a two-fiber bidirectional line switched ring (BLSR).

4F BLSR

The circuit is protected by a four-fiber BLSR.

2F-PCA

The circuit is routed on a protection channel access (PCA) path on a two-fiber BLSR. PCA circuits are unprotected.

4F-PCA

The circuit is routed on a PCA path on a four-fiber BLSR. PCA circuits are unprotected.

BLSR

The circuit is protected by a both a two-fiber and a four-fiber BLSR.

DRI

The circuit is protected by a dual-ring interconnect (both path protection and BLSR).

N/A

A circuit with connections on the same node is not protected.

PCA

The circuit is routed on a PCA path on both two-fiber and four-fiber BLSRs. PCA circuits are unprotected.

Protected

The circuit is protected by diverse SONET topologies, for example, a BLSR and a path protection configuration, or a path protection and 1+1 configuration.

Splitter

The circuit is protected by the protect transponder (TXPP_MR_2.5G) splitter protection. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.

Unknown

A circuit has a source and destination on different nodes and communication is down between the nodes. This protection type appears if not all circuit components are known.

Unprot (black)

A circuit with a source and destination on different nodes is not protected.

Unprot (red)

A circuit created as a fully protected circuit is no longer protected due to a system change, such as removal of a BLSR or 1+1 protection group.

Path Protection

The circuit is protected by a path protection configuration.

Y-Cable

The circuit is protected by a transponder or muxponder card Y-cable protection group. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.

  • Status-The circuit status. Table 21-2 lists the circuit statuses that can appear.
Table 21-2: Cisco ONS 15454 Circuit Status
Status Definition/Activity

CREATING

CTC is creating a circuit.

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, an 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, refer to the "SONET Topologies and Upgrades" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 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, refer to the "SONET Topologies and Upgrades" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 Reference Manual.

DROP_PENDING

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

ROLL_PENDING

A circuit roll is awaiting completion or cancellation.

  • Source-The circuit source in the format: node/slot(card type)/port "port name"/STS/VT. (The port name will appear in quotes.) Node and slot will always appear; port "port name"/STS/VT might appear, depending on the source card, circuit type, and whether a name is assigned to the port. If the port is on a MRC-12 or MRC-2.5G-4 card, the port format is PPM-port_number. If the circuit size is a concatenated size (3c, 6c, 12c, etc.), synchronous transport signals (STSs) used in the circuit are indicated by an ellipsis, for example, "S7..9," (STSs 7, 8, and 9) or S10..12 (STS 10, 11, and 12).
  • Destination-The circuit destination in same format (node/slot[card type]/port "port name"/STS/VT) as the circuit source.
  • # of VLANS-The number of VLANs used by an Ethernet circuit.
  • # of Spans-The number of internode links that constitute the circuit. Right-clicking the column shows a shortcut menu from which you can choose Span Details to show or hide circuit span detail. For each node in the span, the span detail shows the node/slot (card type)/port/STS/VT.
  • State-The circuit service state, IS, OOS, or OOS-PARTIAL. The circuit service state is an aggregate of the service states of its cross-connects:
  • IS-All cross-connects are in the In-Service and Normal (IS-NR) service state.
  • OOS-All cross-connects are in the Out-of-Service and Management, Disabled (OOS-MA,DSBLD) and/or Out-of-Service and Management, Maintenance (OOS-MA,MT) service state.
  • OOS-PARTIAL-At least one cross-connect is IS-NR and others are OOS-MA,DSBLD and/or OOS-MA,MT.

    • Always (Grant Always)-Installs the public-key certificate and does not delete it after the session is over. Cisco recommends this option.
    • More Details (View Certificate)-Allows you to view the public-key security certificate.
  2. If the Login dialog box appears, continue with Step 3. If the Change Java Policy File dialog box appears, complete this step. The Change Java Policy File dialog box appears if CTC finds a modified Java policy file (.java.policy) on your PC. In Software Release 4.0 and earlier, the Java policy file was modified to allow CTC software files to be downloaded to your PC. The modified Java policy file is not needed in Software R4.1 and later, so you can remove it unless you will log into ONS 15454s running software earlier than R4.1. Choose one of the following options:
    • Yes-Removes the modified Java policy file from your PC. Choose this option only if you will log into ONS 15454s running Software R4.1 software or later.
    • No-Does not remove the modified Java policy file from your PC. Choose this option if you will log into ONS 15454s running Software R4.0 or earlier. If you choose No, this dialog box will appear every time you log into the ONS 15454. If you do not want it to appear, check the Do not show the message again check box.

Caution! If you delete the Java policy file, you cannot log into nodes running Software R4.0 and earlier. If you delete the file and want to log into an ONS 15454 running an earlier release, insert the software CD for the release into your PC CD-ROM and run the CTC setup wizard to reinstall the Java policy file.

      This value sets the flow control threshold for sending the signal to the attached Ethernet device to resume transmission.
    4. In the Flow Ctrl Hi column, click the cell in the row for the appropriate port.
    5. Enter a value in the cell. The Flow Ctrl Hi value has a valid range from 2 to 511 and must be higher than the Flow Ctrl Lo value.
      This value sets the flow control threshold for sending the signal to the attached Ethernet device to pause transmission.
    6. Click Apply.
      Note: Low watermarks are optimum for low latency subrate applications, such as voice-over-IP (VoIP) using an STS-1. High watermarks are optimum when the attached Ethernet device has insufficient buffering, best effort traffic, or long access line lengths.
  6. Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

DLP-A422 Verify BLSR Extension Byte Mapping

Purpose

This task verifies that the extension byte mapping is the same on BLSR trunk (span) cards that will be connected after a node is removed from a BLSR.

Security Level

None

Note: The Cisco OC-3 IR/STM-1 SH, OC-12 IR/STM-4 SH, and OC-48 IR/STM-16 SH interface optics, all working at 1310 nm, are optimized for the most widely used SMF-28 fiber-optic cable, available from many suppliers.

Note: Corning MetroCor fiber-optic cable is optimized for optical interfaces that transmit at 1550 nm or in the C and L DWDM windows. This fiber-optic cable targets interfaces with higher dispersion tolerances than those found in OC-3 IR/STM-1 SH, OC-12 IR/STM-4 SH, and OC-48 IR/STM-16 SH interface optics. If you are using Corning MetroCor fiber-optic cable, OC-3 IR/STM-1 SH, OC-12 IR/STM-4 SH, and OC-48 IR/STM-16 SH interface optics will become dispersion limited before they will become attenuation limited. In this case, consider using OC-3 LR/STM-1 LH, OC-12 LR/STM-4 LH, and OC-48 LR/STM-16 LH cards instead of OC-3 IR/STM-1 SH, OC-12 IR/STM-4 SH, and OC-48 IR/STM-16 SH cards.

Note: With all fiber types, network planners/engineers should review the relative fiber type and optics specifications to determine attenuation, dispersion, and other characteristics to ensure appropriate deployment.

  1. Plan your fiber connections. Use the same plan for all 1+1 nodes.
  2. Align the keyed ridge of the cable connector with the transmit (Tx) connector of a working OC-N card at one node and plug the other end of the fiber-optic cable into the receive (Rx) connector of a working OC-N card at the adjacent node. The card displays an SF LED if the transmit and receive fiber-optic cables are mismatched (one fiber-optic cable connects a receive port on one card to a receive port on another card, or the same situation with transmit ports). Figure 19-1 shows the cable location.
  3. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 for the corresponding protect ports on the two nodes and for all other working/protect port pairs that you want to place in a 1+1 configuration.
  4. Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

Caution! The IP address assigned to the TCC2P TCP/IP (LAN) port must reside on a different subnet from the backplane LAN port and the ONS 15454 default router. Verify that the new TCC2P IP address meets this requirement and is compatible with the ONS 15454 network IP addresses.

Note: The node will reboot after you complete this task, causing a temporary disconnection between the CTC computer and the node.

  1. In node view, click the Provisioning > Security > Data Comm tabs.
  2. Click Change Mode.
  3. Review the information on the Change Secure Mode wizard page, then click Next.
  4. On the TCC Ethernet Port page, enter the IP address and subnet mask for the TCC2P LAN (TCP/IP) port. The IP address cannot reside on the same subnet as the backplane LAN port or the ONS 15454 default router.
  5. Click Next.
  6. On the Backplane Ethernet Port page, modify the backplane IP address, subnet mask, and default router, if needed. (Normally, you do not need to modify these fields if no ONS 15454 network changes have occurred.)
  7. Click Next.
  8. On the SOCKS Proxy Server Settings page, choose one of the following options:
    • External Network Element (ENE)-If selected, the CTC computer is only visible to the ONS 15454 where the CTC computer is connected. The computer is not visible to the data communications channel (DCC)-connected nodes. By default, SOCKS proxy is not enabled for an ENE. If SOCKS proxy is disabled, the NE cannot communicate with other secure mode NEs behind the firewall.
    • Gateway Network Element (GNE)-If selected, the CTC computer is visible to other DCC-connected nodes. The node prevents IP traffic from being routed between the DCC and the LAN port. By default, configuring the secure node as a GNE also enables SOCKS proxy for communication with other secure NEs.
  9. Click Finish.
    Within the next 30 to 40 seconds, the TCC2P cards reboot. CTC switches to network view, and the CTC Alerts dialog box appears. In network view, the node changes to gray and a DISCONNECTED condition appears.
  10. In the CTC Alerts dialog box, click Close. Wait for the reboot to finish. (This might take several minutes.)
  11. After the DISCONNECTED condition clears, complete the following steps to suppress the backplane IP address from display in CTC and the LCD. If you do not want to suppress the backplane IP address display, continue with Step 12.
    1. Display the node in node view.
    2. Click the Provisioning > Security > Data Comm tabs.
    3. If you do not want the IP address to appear on the LCD, in the LCD IP Setting field, choose Suppress Display.

Note: CTC only permits you to change the state of a member that does not use the link capacity adjustment scheme (LCAS) if the new state matches the In Group VCAT state of the other members, or the new state is an Out of Group VCAT state. The In Group VCAT state indicates that a member has cross-connects in the IS-NR; OOS-MA,AINS; or OOS-AU,MT service states. For non-LCAS VCAT members, the Out of Group VCAT state is the OOS-MA,DSBLD service state.

  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. Select the member that you want to change. To choose multiple members, press Ctrl and click each member.
  5. From the Tools menu, choose Set Circuit State.
    Note: You can also change the state for all members listed in the Edit Circuit window using the State tab. Another alternative is to click the Edit Member button to access the Edit Member Circuit window for the selected member, and click the State tab.
  6. From the Target Circuit Admin State drop-down list, choose the administrative 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.
    • OOS,OOG-(LCAS and Sw-LCAS VCAT 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.
    Note the following behavior of the two VCAT members on ML-Series cards (both SW-LCAS and non-LCAS members):
    • When changing a member from the IS-NR to the OOS-MT, MT or the OOS-MA,DSBLD service state, changing the service state of the first member causes both members to change service state autonomously.
    • When changing a member from the OOS-MA,DSBLD to the OOS-MT, MT or the IS-NR service state, you must begin with the second VCAT member. For example, change the service state of the second member first, and then the first member. You cannot change the service state of the first member if the second member is in another service state.
  7. Click Apply.
  8. To close the Edit Circuit window, choose Close from the File menu.

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.

-

  1. If the SNMP "Get" (or other operation) is enabled on the ONS 15454 configured as a GNE, enter the community name assigned to the GNE in community name field on the MIB browser.
    Note: The community name is a form of authentication and access control. The community name of the NMS must match the community name assigned to the ONS 15454.
  2. If the SNMP "Get" (or other operation) is enabled for the ENE through a SOCKS proxy-enabled GNE, create a formatted string to enter in the MIB browser community name field. Refer to the following examples when constructing this string for your browser:
  • Formatted community string input example 1:
allviews{192.168.7.4,,,net7node4}
If "allviews" is a valid community name value at the proxy-enabled SNMP agent (the GNE), the GNE is expected to forward the PDU to 192.168.7.4 at Port 161. The outgoing PDU will have "net7node4" as the community name. This is the valid community name for the ENE with address 192.168.7.4.

DLP-A454 View the BLSR STS Squelch Table

Purpose

This task allows you to view the BLSR STS squelch table for an ONS 15454 BLSR node. For example, if a fiber cut occurs, the BLSR STS squelch tables show STSs that will be squelched for every isolated node. Squelching replaces traffic by inserting the appropriate alarm indication signal path (AIS-P); it prevents traffic misconnections. For an STS with a VT-access check mark, the AIS-P will be removed after 100 ms. For more information about BLSR squelching, refer to Telcordia GR-1230.

DLP-A455 View the BLSR VT Squelch Table

Purpose

BLSR VT squelch tables only appear on the node dropping VTs from a BLSR and are used to perform VT-level squelching when a node is isolated. VT squelching is supported on the ONS 15454 and the ONS 15327 platforms.

The ONS 15600 platform does not support VT squelching; however, when an ONS 15454 and an ONS 15600 are in the same network, the ONS 15600 node allows the ONS 15454 node to carry VT circuits in a VT tunnel. The ONS 15600 performs 100-ms STS-level squelching for each VT-access STS at the switching node in case of a node failure. For more information about BLSR squelching, refer to Telcordia GR-1230.

Caution! Do not configure a node for RADIUS authentication until after you have added that node to the RADIUS server and added the RADIUS server to the list of authenticators. If you do not add the node to a RADIUS server prior to activating RADIUS authentication, no user will be able to access the node. Refer to the User Guide for Cisco Secure ACS for Windows Server for more information about adding a node to a RADIUS server.

Note: The following Cisco vendor-specific attribute (VSA) needs to be specified when adding users to the RADIUS server: shell:priv-lvl=N, where N is: 0 for Retrieve User 1 for Maintenance User 2 for Provisioning User 3 for Super User.

  1. In node view, click the Provisioning > Security > RADIUS Server tabs (Figure 21-4).

    Figure 21-5: Create RADIUS Server Entry Window

    134290.jpg

  2. Enter the RADIUS server IP address in the IP Address field. If the node is an end network element (ENE), enter the IP address of the gateway network element (GNE) in this field. The GNE passes authentication requests from the ENEs in its network to the RADIUS server, which grants authentication if the GNE is listed as a client on the server. Caution! Because the ENE nodes use the GNE to pass authentication requests to the RADIUS server, you must add the ENEs to the RADIUS server individually for authentication. If you do not add the ENE node to a RADIUS server prior to activating RADIUS authentication, no user will be able to access the node. Refer to the User Guide for Cisco Secure ACS for Windows Server for more information about adding a node to a RADIUS server.
  3. Enter the shared secret in the Shared Secret field. A shared secret is a text string that serves as a password between a RADIUS client and RADIUS server.
  4. Enter the RADIUS authentication port number in the Authentication Port field. The default port is 1812. If the node is an ENE, set the authentication port to a number within the range of 1860 to 1869.
  5. Enter the RADIUS accounting port in the Accounting Port field. The default port is 1813. If the node is an ENE, set the accounting port to a number within the range of 1870 to 1879.
  6. Click OK. The RADIUS server is added to the list of RADIUS authenticators.
  7. Note: You can add up to 10 RADIUS servers to a node's list of authenticators.
  8. Click Edit to make changes to an existing RADIUS server. You can change the IP address, the shared secret, the authentication port, and the accounting port.
  9. Click Delete to delete the selected RADIUS server.
  10. Click Move Up or Move Down to reorder the list of RADIUS authenticators. The node requests authentication from the servers sequentially from top to bottom. If one server is unreachable, the node will request authentication from the next RADIUS server on the list.
  11. Click the Enable RADIUS Authentication check box to activate remote-server authentication for the node.
  12. Click the Enable RADIUS Accounting check box if you want to show RADIUS authentication information in the audit trail.
  13. Click the Enable the Node as the Final Authenticator check box if you want the node to be the final autheticator. This means that if every RADIUS authenticator is unavailable, the node will authenticate the login rather than locking the user out.

  6. In the Pivot/Fixed Point 2 window, click the square that represents the fixed path of the second connection to be rolled.
  7. The path that is not selected is the Roll From path. The Roll From path is deleted after the roll is completed. The path identifier appears in the text box below the graphic image.
  8. Click Next.
  9. In the Circuit Routing Preferences area, check Route Automatically to allow CTC to find the route (Figure 21-12). If you check Route Automatically, the following options are available:
    • Using Required Nodes/Spans-If checked, you can specify nodes and spans to include or exclude in the CTC-generated circuit route in Step 15.
    • Review Route Before Creation-If checked, you can review and edit the circuit route before the circuit is created.
    Figure 21-12: Setting Roll Routing Preferences

    124240.jpg

  10. To route the circuit over a protected path, check Fully Protected Path. (If you do not want to route the circuit on a protected path, continue with Step 14.) CTC creates a primary and alternate circuit route (virtual path protection) based on the following nodal diversity options. Select one of the following choices and follow subsequent window prompts to complete the routing:
    • Nodal Diversity Required-Ensures that the primary and alternate paths within path-protected mesh network (PPMN) portions of the complete circuit path are nodally diverse.
    • Nodal Diversity Desired-Specifies that node diversity should be attempted, but if node diversity is not possible, CTC creates link diverse paths for the PPMN portion of the complete circuit path.
    • Link Diversity Only-Specifies that only link-diverse primary and alternate paths for PPMN portions of the complete circuit path are needed. The paths might be node-diverse, but CTC does not check for node diversity.
  11. If you checked Route Automatically in Step 12:
    • If you checked Using Required Nodes/Spans, continue with Step 15.
    • If you checked only Review Route Before Creation, continue with Step 16.
    • If you did not check Using Required Nodes/Spans or Review Route Before Creation, continue with Step 17.
  12. If you checked Using Required Nodes/Spans in Step 12:
    1. In the Roll Route Constraints area, click a node or span on the circuit map.
    2. Click Include to include the node or span in the circuit. Click Exclude to exclude the node/span from the circuit. The order in which you select included nodes and spans sets the circuit sequence. Click spans twice to change the circuit direction.
    3. Repeat Substep 2 for each node or span you wish to include or exclude.
    4. Review the circuit route. To change the circuit routing order, select a node in the Required Nodes/Lines or Excluded Nodes Links lists, then click the Up or Down buttons to change the circuit routing order. Click Remove to remove a node or span.
  13. If you checked Review Route Before Creation in Step 12:
    1. In the Roll Route Review and Edit area, review the circuit route. To add or delete a circuit span, select 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.
    2. If the provisioned circuit does not reflect the routing and configuration you want, click Back to verify and change circuit information.

    Caution! The following is only seen with DUAL roll mode when both ends of the circuit use the card(s) mentioned in this statement. If the termination card is a DS1/E1-56, DS1-14, DS1-N-14, DS3XM-6, or DS3XM-12 card, a roll will occur even if a valid signal is not detected on the Roll To port. The absence of path payload defect indication (PDI-P) downstream for loss of signal (LOS), loss of frame alignment (LOF), and AIS line defects causes the roll to continue without a valid signal. On the DS1/E1-56, DS1-14, and DS1-N-14 cards, it is possible to check the Send AIS-V For Ds1 AIS check box to properly generate PDI-P downstream for the LOS and LOF AIS line defects. This check box is selected from the card view Provisioning > Line tab. On the DS1-14 and DS1-N-14 cards, Send AIS-V for Ds1 AIS only works for VT circuits. On DS1/E1-56 cards, Send AIS-V for Ds1 AIS works for both STS and VT circuits.

  14. Click Finish.
  15. In the Circuits tab, verify that a new circuit appears. This circuit is the Roll To circuit. It is designated with the Roll From circuit name appended with ROLL**.
  16. Click the Rolls tab. Two new rolls now appear. For each pending roll, view the Roll Valid Signal status. When one of the following requirements is met, continue with Step 19.
    • If the Roll Valid Signal status is true, a valid signal was found on the new port.
    • If the Roll Valid Signal status is false, a valid signal was not found. Wait until the signal is found before continuing with the next step. If a valid signal is not found, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide. To cancel the roll, see the "DLP-A489 Cancel a Roll" task.
    • The roll is a one-way destination roll and the Roll Valid signal status is false. It is not possible to get a Roll Valid Signal status of true for a one-way destination roll.
    Note: If you have completed a roll, you cannot cancel the sibling roll. You must cancel the two rolls together.
    Note: You cannot cancel an automatic roll after a valid signal is found.
    • A roll can be forced onto the Roll To Circuit destination without a valid signal by using the Force Valid Signal button. If you choose Force Valid Signal, traffic on the circuit that is involved in the roll will be dropped when the roll is completed.
  17. If you selected Manual in Step 5, click both rolls on the Rolls tab and click Complete to route the traffic to the new port. If you selected Auto, continue with Step 20.
  18. Note: You cannot complete a roll if you cancelled the sibling roll. You must complete the two rolls together.

Warning! Class 1 laser product. Statement 1008

Warning! Invisible laser radiation could be emitted from the end of the unterminated fiber cable or connector. Do not stare into the beam directly with optical instruments. Viewing the laser output with certain optical instruments (for example, eye loupes, magnifiers, and microscopes) within a distance of 100 mm could pose an eye hazard. Statement 1056

Note: G-Series cards manufactured before August 2003 do not support DWDM GBICs. G1K-4 cards compatible with DWDM GBICs have a Common Language Equipment Identification (CLEI) code of WM5IRWPCAA.

Note: All versions of G1K-4 cards support coarse wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM) GBICs.

Note: GBICs, SFPs, and XFPs are hot-swappable and can therefore be installed/removed while the card/shelf assembly is powered and running.

  1. Remove the GBIC, SFP, or XFP from its protective packaging.
  2. Check the label to verify that the GBIC, SFP, or XFP is the correct type for your network. Refer to the "Optical Cards" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 Reference Manual for a list of card and SFP/XFP compatibility.
    Note: The GBICs are very similar in appearance. Check the GBIC label carefully before installing it.
    Note: Before you install SFPs on the MRC-12 or MRC-2.5G-4 card, refer to the MRC-12 or MRC-2.5G-4 card information in the Cisco ONS 15454 Reference Manual for bandwidth restrictions based on the port where you install the SFP and the cross-connect card being used.
  3. Verify the type of GBIC, SFP, or XFP you are using:
    • If you are using a GBIC with clips, go to Step 4.
    • If you are using a GBIC with a handle, go to Step 5.
    • If you are using an SFP or XFP, go to Step 6.
  4. For GBICs with clips:
    1. Grip the sides of the GBIC with your thumb and forefinger and insert the GBIC into the slot on the card.
      Note: GBICs are keyed to prevent incorrect installation.
    2. Slide the GBIC through the flap that covers the opening until you hear a click. The click indicates the GBIC is locked into the slot.
    3. When you are ready to attach the network fiber-optic cable, remove the protective plug from the GBIC, save the plug for future use, then plug the fiber connector into the GBIC.
    4. Continue with Step 7.
  5. For GBICs with a handle:
    1. Remove the protective plug from the SC-type connector.
    2. Grip the sides of the GBIC with your thumb and forefinger and insert the GBIC into the slot on the card.
    3. Lock the GBIC into place by closing the handle down. The handle is in the correct closed position when it does not obstruct access to an SC-type connector.
    4. Slide the GBIC through the cover flap until you hear a click.
      The click indicates that the GBIC is locked into the slot.
    5. When you are ready to attach the network fiber-optic cable, remove the protective plug from the GBIC, save the plug for future use, then plug the fiber connector into the GBIC.
    6. Continue with Step 7.
  6. For SFPs and XFPs:
    1. Plug the LC duplex connector of the fiber into a Cisco-supported SFP or XFP.
    2. If the new SFP or XFP has a latch, close the latch over the cable to secure it.
    3. Plug the cabled SFP or XFP into the card port until it clicks.

SFPs and XFPs must be provisioned in CTC. If you installed a multirate PPM, complete the "DLP-A574 Provision a PPM on the MRC-12 or MRC-2.5G-4 Card" task. (Single-rate XFPs do not need to be provisioned in CTC.)

  • To consolidate a link or links between two nodes, go to Step 5.
  • To view information about a consolidated link, go to Step 6.
  • To access an individual link within a consolidated link, go to Step 7.
  • To expand consolidated links, go to Step 8.
  • To filter the links by class, go to Step 9.
  1. Right-click on the network map and choose Show Link Icons to toggle the link icons on and off.
  2. To consolidate all the links on the network map (global consolidation):
    1. Right-click anywhere on the network map.
    2. Choose Collapse/Expand Links from the shortcut menu. The Collapse/Expand Links dialog window appears.
    3. Select the check boxes for the link classes you want to consolidate.
    4. Click OK. The selected link classes are consolidated throughout the network map.
  3. To consolidate a link or links between two nodes (local consolidation):
    1. Right-click the link on the network map.
    2. Choose Collapse Link from the shortcut menu. The selected link type consolidates to show only one link.
    Note: The links consolidate by class. For example, if you select a DCC link for consolidation only the DCC links will consolidate, leaving any other link classes expanded.

  4. To view information about a consolidated link, either move your mouse over the link (the tooltip displays the number of links and the link class) or single-click the link to display detailed information on the left side of the window.
  5. To access an individual link within a consolidated link (for example, if you need to perform a span upgrades):
    1. Right-click the consolidated link. A shortcut menu appears with a list of the individual links.
    2. Hover the mouse over the selected link. A cascading menu appears where you can select an action for the individual link or navigate to one of the nodes where the link is attached.
  6. To expand locally consolidated links, right-click the consolidated link and choose Expand [link class] Links from the shortcut menu, where "link class" is DCC, GCC, OTS, PPC, or Server Trail.
  7. To filter the links by class:
    1. Click the Link Filter button in the upper right area of the window. The Link Filter dialog appears.
    2. The link classes that appear in the Link Filter dialog are determined by the Network Scope you choose in the network view (Table 21-7).
      Table 21-7: Link Classes By Network Scope
      Network Scope Displayed Link Classes
