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.

This chapter describes the Cisco ONS 15454 optical card features and functions. It includes descriptions, hardware specifications, and block diagrams for each optical card. For installation and card turn-up procedures, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide.

See the OC192SR1/STM64IO Short Reach and OC192/STM64 Any Reach Cards.

1. In the Cisco Transport Controller (CTC) GUI, these cards are known as OC192-XFP.

Note: The Cisco OC3 IR/STM1 SH, OC12 IR/STM4 SH, and OC48 IR/STM16 SH interface optics, all working at 1310 nm, are optimized for the most widely used SMF-28 fiber, available from many suppliers.

Corning MetroCor fiber is optimized for optical interfaces that transmit at 1550 nm or in the C and L DWDM windows, and targets interfaces with higher dispersion tolerances than those found in OC3 IR/STM1 SH, OC12 IR/STM4 SH, and OC48 IR/STM16 SH interface optics. If you are using Corning MetroCor fiber, OC3 IR/STM1 SH, OC12 IR/STM4 SH, and OC48 IR/STM16 SH interface optics become dispersion limited before they become attenuation limited. In this case, consider using OC12 LR/STM4 LH and OC48 LR/STM16 LH cards instead of OC12 IR/STM4 SH and OC48 IR/STM16 SH cards.

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.

OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz Cards

Note: For hardware specifications, see the OC48 ELR/STM 16 EH 100 GHz Card Specifications. See Table 4-2 for optical card compatibility.

Thirty-seven distinct OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards provide the ONS 15454 DWDM channel plan. Each OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz card has one SONET OC-48/SDH STM-16 port that complies with Telcordia GR-253-CORE, ITU-T G.692, and ITU-T G.958.

The port operates at 2.49 Gbps over a single-mode fiber span. The card carries VT, concatenated (STS-1), and nonconcatenated (STS-1, STS-3c, STS-6c, STS-12c, or STS-48c) payloads.

Warning! The laser is on when the optical card is booted. The port does not have to be in service for the laser to be on.

Figure 4-11 shows the OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz faceplate and a block diagram of the card.

Figure 4-11: OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz Faceplate and Block Diagram

61613.jpg

Nineteen of the cards operate in the blue band with spacing of 100 GHz on the ITU grid (1528.77 nm, 1530.33 nm, 1531.12 nm, 1531.90 nm, 1532.68 nm, 1533.47 nm, 1534.25 nm, 1535.04 nm, 1535.82 nm, 1536.61 nm, 1538.19 nm, 1538.98 nm, 1539.77 nm, 1540.56 nm, 1541.35 nm, 1542.14 nm, 1542.94 nm, 1543.73 nm, and 1544.53 nm). ITU spacing conforms to ITU-T G.692 and Telcordia GR-2918-CORE, Issue 2.

The other eighteen cards operate in the red band with spacing of 100 GHz on the ITU grid (1546.12 nm, 1546.92 nm, 1547.72 nm, 1548.51 nm,1549.32 nm, 1550.12 nm, 1550.92 nm, 1551.72 nm, 1552.52 nm, 1554.13 nm, 1554.94 nm, 1555.75 nm, 1556.55 nm, 1557.36 nm, 1558.17 nm, 1558.98 nm, 1559.79 nm, and 1560.61 nm). These cards are also designed to interoperate with the Cisco ONS 15216 DWDM solution.

You can install the OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards in Slots 5, 6, 12, and 13 and provision the card as a drop or span card in a two-fiber or four-fiber BLSR, path protection, or ADM (linear) configuration. Each OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz card uses extended long-reach optics operating individually within the ITU-T 100-GHz grid. The OC-48 DWDM cards are intended to be used in applications with long unregenerated spans of up to 300 km (186 miles) (with mid-span amplification). These transmission distances are achieved through the use of inexpensive optical amplifiers (flat gain amplifiers) such as Cisco ONS 15216 erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFAs).

Maximum system reach in filterless applications is 26 dB without the use of optical amplifiers or regenerators. However, system reach also depends on the condition of the facilities, the number of splices and connectors, and other performance-affecting factors. When used in combination with ONS 15216 100-GHz filters, the link budget is reduced by the insertion loss of the filters plus an additional 2-dB power penalty. The wavelength stability of the OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards is +/- 0.12 nm for the life of the product and over the full range of operating temperatures. Each interface contains a transmitter and receiver.

The OC48 ELR/STM16 EH 100 GHz cards detect LOS, LOF, LOP, and AIS-L conditions. The cards also count section and line BIP errors.

Using collocated amplification, distances up to 200 km (124 miles) can be achieved for a single channel, 160 km (99 miles) for 8 channels.

Maximum system reach in filterless applications is 24 dB or approximately 80 km (50 miles) without the use of optical amplifiers or regenerators. However, system reach also depends on the condition of the facilities, the number of splices and connectors, and other performance-affecting factors. The OC48 ELR DWDM cards feature wavelength stability of +/-0.25 nm. Each interface contains a transmitter and receiver.

The OC48 ELR 200 GHz cards support extended long-reach applications in conjunction with optical amplification. Using electro-absorption technology, the OC48 DWDM cards provide a solution at the lower extended long-reach distances.

The OC48 ELR 200 GHz interface features a 1550-nm laser and contains a transmit and receive connector (labeled) on the card faceplate. The card uses SC connectors and supports 1+1 unidirectional and bidirectional protection switching.

1. If the MRC-12 card is initially populated with OC-3/12 on all its 12 ports, you can later add OC-48 SFPs on that card from top port to bottom port or from bottom port to top port. The maximum available bandwidth usage is different for these two cases.

15454_MRC-12 Card-Level Indicators

Table 4-21 describes the three card-level LEDs on the 15454_MRC-12 card.

Table 4-21: 15454_MRC-12 Card-Level Indicators
Card-Level LED Description

Red FAIL LED

The red FAIL LED indicates that the card's processor is not ready. This LED is on during reset. The FAIL LED flashes during the boot process. Replace the card if the red FAIL LED persists.

ACT/STBY LED

Green (Active)

Amber (Standby)

If the ACT/STBY LED is green, the card is operational and ready to carry traffic. If the ACT/STBY LED is amber, the card is operational and in standby (protect) mode or is part of an active ring switch (BLSR).

Amber SF LED

The amber SF LED indicates a signal failure or condition such as LOS, LOF, or high BERs on one or more of the card's ports. The amber SF LED is also on if the transmit and receive fibers are incorrectly connected. If the fibers are properly connected and the link is working, the light turns off.

15454_MRC-12 Port-Level Indicators

Each port has an Rx indicator. The LED flashes green if the port is receiving a signal, and it flashes red if the port is not receiving a signal.

You can also find the status of the 15454_MRC-12 card ports by using the LCD screen on the ONS 15454 fan-tray assembly. Use the LCD to view the status of any port or card slot; the screen displays the number and severity of alarms for a given port or slot. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide for a complete description of the alarm messages.

MRC-2.5G-4 Multirate Card

Note: For hardware specifications, see the 15454_MRC-12 Card Specifications. See Table 4-2 for optical card compatibility.

The MRC-2.5G-4 multirate card provides up to four OC-3/STM-1 ports, four OC-12/STM-4 ports, or one OC-48/STM-16 ports using small form-factor pluggables (SFPs), in various combinations of line rates. All ports are Telcordia GR-253 compliant. The SFP optics can use SR, IR, LR, coarse wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM), and DWDM SFPs to support unrepeated spans. See the Optical Card SFPs and XFPs for more information about SFPs.

The ports operate at up to 2488.320 Mbps over a single-mode fiber. The MRC-2.5G-4 card has four physical connector adapters with two fibers per connector adapter (Tx and Rx). The card supports VT payloads, STS-1 payloads, and concatenated payloads at STS-3c, STS-6c, STS-9c, STS-12c, STS-18c, STS-24c, STS-36c, or STS-48c signal levels. It is fully interoperable with the ONS 15454 G-Series Ethernet cards.

Each MRC-2.5G-4 port contains a transmit and receive connector (labeled) on the card faceplate. The card supports 1+1 unidirectional and bidirectional facility protection. It also supports 1+1 protection in four-fiber BLSR applications where both span switching and ring switching might occur. You can provision this card as part of an BLSR, path protection, or 1+1 linear configuration. The MRC-2.5G-4 card also supports optimized 1+1 protection when used with OC-3 SFPs.

Note: 1+1 protection must be configured between the same equipment type, using the same port number and line rate.

Note: Longer distances are possible in an amplified system using dispersion compensation.

Figure 4-22 shows the MRC-2.5G-4 faceplate and block diagram.

Slot Compatibility by Cross-Connect Card

You can install MRC-2.5G-4 cards in Slots 1 through 6 and 12 through 17 with an XCVT, XC10G, or XC-VXC-10G.

Note: The MRC-2.5G-4 card supports an errorless software-initiated cross-connect card switch when used in a shelf equipped with XC-VXC-10G and TCC2/TCC2P cards.

The maximum bandwidth of the MRC-2.5G-4 card is determined by the cross-connect card, as shown in Table 4-22.

Table 4-22: Maximum Bandwidth by Shelf Slot for the MRC-2.5G-4 in Different Cross-Connect Configurations

Ports and Line Rates

Total MRC-2.5G-4 card bandwidth cannot exceed OC-48/STM-16, so there are some limitations on which SFP ports can be used as OC-3/STM-1, OC-12/STM-4, and OC-48/STM-16.

The following rules apply for port bandwidth allocation:

  • STS-12 maximum backplane bandwidth
    • Port 1 is the only port that is usable as an OC-12/STM-4. If Port 1 is used as an OC-12/STM-4, all other ports are disabled.
    • Each of the four ports can be used as OC-3/STM-1.
  • STS-48 maximum backplane bandwidth
    • Port 1 is the only port that is usable as an OC-48/STM-16. If Port 1 is used as an OC-48/STM-16, all other ports are disabled.
    • Mixed OC-3/STM-1 and OC-12/STM-4 configurations are supported. All possible permutations are not covered in this reference section.

MRC-2.5G-4 Card-Level Indicators

Table 4-23 describes the three card-level LEDs on the MRC-2.5G-4 card.

Table 4-23: MRC-2.5G-4 Card-Level Indicators
Card-Level LED Description

Red FAIL LED

The red FAIL LED indicates that the card's processor is not ready. This LED is on during reset. The FAIL LED flashes during the boot process. Replace the card if the red FAIL LED persists.

ACT/STBY LED

Green (Active)

Amber (Standby)

If the ACT/STBY LED is green, the card is operational and ready to carry traffic. If the ACT/STBY LED is amber, the card is operational and in standby (protect) mode or is part of an active ring switch (BLSR).

Amber SF LED

The amber SF LED indicates a signal failure or condition such as LOS, LOF, or high BERs on one or more of the card's ports. The amber SF LED is also on if the transmit and receive fibers are incorrectly connected. If the fibers are properly connected and the link is working, the light turns off.

MRC-2.5G-4 Port-Level Indicators

Each port has an Rx indicator. The LED flashes green if the port is receiving a signal, and it flashes red if the port is not receiving a signal.

You can also find the status of the MRC-2.5G-4 card ports by using the LCD screen on the ONS 15454 fan-tray assembly. Use the LCD to view the status of any port or card slot; the screen displays the number and severity of alarms for a given port or slot. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide for a complete description of the alarm messages.

OC192SR1/STM64IO Short Reach and OC192/STM64 Any Reach Cards

Note: For hardware specifications, see the OC192SR1/STM64IO Short Reach Card Specifications and the OC192/STM64 Any Reach Card Specifications. See Table 4-2 for optical card compatibility.

The OC192SR1/STM64IO Short Reach and OC192/STM64 Any Reach cards each provide a single OC-192/STM-64 interface, as follows:

  • OC192SR1/STM64IO Short Reach card (SR-1)
  • OC192/STM-64 Any Reach card (SR-1, IR-2, and LR-2)

In CTC, these cards are referred to as "OC192-XFP" cards.

The interface operates at 9.952 Gbps over single-mode fiber spans and can be provisioned for both concatenated and nonconcatenated payloads on a per STS-1/VC-4 basis. Specification references can be found for the OC-192/STM-64 interface in ITU-T G.691, ITU-T G.693, and ITU-T G.959.1, and Telcordia GR-253.

The optical interface uses a 10-Gbps Form-factor Pluggable (XFP) optical transceiver that plugs into a receptacle on the front of the card. The OC192SR1/STM64IO Short Reach card is used only with an SR-1 XFP, while the OC192/STM-64 Any Reach card can be provisioned for use with an SR-1, IR-2, LR-2, or DWDM XFP module. The XFP SR, IR, and LR interfaces each provide one bidirectional OC192/STM64 interface compliant with the recommendations defined by ITU-T G.91. SR-1 is compliant with ITU-T I-64.1, IR-2 is compliant with ITU G.691 S-64.2b, and LR-2 is compliant with ITU G.959.1 P1L1-2D2.

The cards are used only in Slots 5, 6, 12, and 13. and only with 10-Gbps cross-connect cards, such as the XC10G and XC-VXC-10G.

Note: The OC192SR1/STM64IO Short Reach and OC192/STM64 Any Reach cards support an errorless software-initiated cross-connect card switch when used in a shelf equipped with XC-VXC-10G and TCC2/TCC2P cards.

Figure 4-23 shows the faceplates and block diagram for the two cards.

Figure 4-23: OC192SR1/STM64IO Short Reach and OC192/STM64 Any Reach Card Faceplates and Block Diagram

The cards' spans depend on the XFP module that is used:

  • A card using the SR-1 XFP is intended to be used in applications requiring 10-Gbps transport with unregenerated spans of up to 2.0 km.
  • A card using the IR-2 XFP is intended to be used in applications requiring 10-Gbps transport with unregenerated spans of up to 40 km.
  • A card using the LR-2 XFP is intended to be used in applications requiring 10-Gbps transport with unregenerated spans of up to 80 km.

SFP Description

SFPs are integrated fiber optic transceivers that provide high-speed serial links from a port or slot to the network. Various latching mechanisms can be utilized on the modules. There is no correlation between the type of latch to the model type (such as SX or LX/LH) or technology type (such as Gigabit Ethernet). See the label on the SFP for technology type and model. Three latch types are available: mylar (Figure 4-24), actuator/button (Figure 4-25), and bail clasp (Figure 4-26).

Figure 4-24: Mylar Tab SFP

63065.jpg

Figure 4-25: Actuator/Button SFP

63066.jpg

Figure 4-26: Bail Clasp SFP

63067.jpg

SFP dimensions are:

  • Height 0.03 in. (8.5 mm)
  • Width 0.53 in. (13.4 mm)
  • Depth 2.22 in. (56.5 mm)

SFP temperature ranges are:

  • COM-Commercial operating temperature range: 23 to 158 degrees Fahrenheit (-5 to 70 degrees Celsius)
  • EXT-Extended operating temperature range: 23 to185 degrees Fahrenheit (-5to 85 degrees Celsius)
  • IND-Industrial operating temperature range: -40 to 185 degrees Fahrenheit (-40 to 85 degrees Celsius)

XFP Description

The 10-Gbps 1310-nm and 1550-nm XFP transceivers are integrated fiber optic transceivers that provide high-speed serial links at the following signaling rates: 9.95 Gbps, 10.31 Gbps, and 10.51 Gbps. The XFP integrates the receiver and transmit path. The transmit side recovers and retimes the 10-Gbps serial data and passes it to a laser driver. The laser driver biases and modulates a 1310-nm or 1550-nm distributed feedback (DFB) laser, enabling data transmission over single-mode fiber (SMF) through an LC connector. The receive side recovers and retimes the 10-Gbps optical data stream from a positive-intrinsic-negative (PIN) photodetector, transimpedance amplifier and passes it to an output driver.

The XFP module uses the bail clasp latching mechanism, shown unlatched in Figure 4-27 and latched in Figure 4-28. See the label on the XFP for technology type and model.

Figure 4-27: Bail Clasp XFP (Unlatched)

115720.jpg

Figure 4-28: Bail Clasp XFP (Latched)

115719.jpg

XFP dimensions are:

  • Height 0.33 in. (8.5 mm)
  • Width 0.72 in. (18.3 mm)
  • Depth 3.1 in. (78 mm)

XFP temperature ranges are:

  • COM-Commercial operating temperature range: 23 to 158 degrees Fahrenheit (-5 to 70 degrees Celsius)
  • EXT-Extended operating temperature range: 23 to185 degrees Fahrenheit (-5to 85 degrees Celsius)
  • IND-Industrial operating temperature range: -40 to 185 degrees Fahrenheit (-40 to 85 degrees Celsius)

PPM Provisioning

SFPs and XFPs are known as pluggable-port modules (PPMs) in CTC. Multirate PPMs for the 15454_MRC-12 card can be provisioned for different line rates in CTC. For more information about provisioning PPMs, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide.
