eSFP cable management

The PSS-4 shelf has an open space of 44 mm between the Card and the standard front
cover (3KC12890AA**) as shown in the following figure:

The RJ-45 boot has a length of 25mm with a space of 44mm between the card and the
standard front cover. This leaves a space of 10 mm which is the space available for
bending the STP cable. This is less than its threshold -4xOD (normal).
Note: There are several thresholds for STP cable, local field support engineer should
check before deployment.
If the Bending radius is less than the threshold, it may have a negative impact on its
functioning.

Equipment Installation

Rack installation of Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-4

....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

The possible solutions to resolve this problem are listed in the following:
1. Use the shortest RJ-45 boot from Tyco (11mm) with standard front cover
(3KC12890AA**); the cable management space increases by 7mm, although the
bending radius is still less than its threshold.
2. Remove the ETSI rack door and the front cover.
3. Use extended cover (3KC13331AAAA) installed on ANSI, EIA or ETSI (without
rack door) rack.
Figure 2-3 eSFP plugged in 112PDM11 with extended cover (3KC13331AAAA)

SDI SFP cable management

The SDI SFP is supported by PSS-4, under this case, extended cover (3KC13331AAAA)
may be used. Local support engineer should pay attention to the space between the card
and the front cover basing the bending radius of the cable. An example picture is shown
below:

Fiber connectors

In general, the type of fiber jumper used with Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-4 depends on the
type of rack (bay or cabinet) the equipment is installed. Commonly, Fiber jumpers used
with ETSI racks need to have a short, straight fiber boot as shown in Figure 2-15, Short
LC fiber boot (p. 2-33)to eliminate any interference between the fiber jumper sand the
ETSI cabinet door. Fiber jumpers used with ANSI or EIA racks need to have angled fiber
boots as shown in Fiber connectors (p. 2-34). It is important that the right fiber jumpers
be ordered based on the type of rack being used.
Figure 2-15 Short LC fiber boot

Straight short boot. 35 mm maximum from tip of fiber to back edge of boot.

....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

ID module replacement
Overview

Unlike the user panel for the 1830 PSS-32, the 1830 PSS-4 ID module can only be
replaced when the unit is powered down. The 1830 PSS-4 ID module has an EPROM that
contains the serial number and information to retain remote access capability in the event
of a database loss, similar to a user panel in the 1830 PSS-32.
ID module replacement procedure

Note: When restarting after replacement of an ID module on an NE that has been


powered down, the new ID module will cause the NE to appear as though it has never
been commissioned. To preserve traffic during the restart, the NE database should
NOT be initialized. Instead, a previously backed up database is restored to the NE
after the restart.
Use the following procedure to replace an ID module on an 1830 PSS-4.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Reprovision the NE Name for the NE. This can be done during the initial connection to
the NE with the WebUI, or using the CLI command: config general name.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Reprovision the loopback IP address for the NE, using the CLI command:
config interface loopback ip.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

On an 1830 PSS, reprovision the user panel OAMP port IP address for this NE, using the
CLI command: config interface 1/1/oamp ip.
Physically replace the 1830PSS-1 FAN (integrated Fan/User Panel).
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Reprovision the static routing (gateway) information for this NE, using the CLI
command: config cn routes static add.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

To bring the database from a remote server to the NE, enter the CLI command:
config database restore force.

Replacing a card
Slot equipage requirement

Blanks are used to cover unused slots to improve cooling air flow. All slots in the shelf
must be occupied with circuit packs or blanks, and all packs must be fully inserted into
the shelf to maintain proper air flow. The shelf must not have an empty slot. Empty slots
or partially inserted cards decrease the air flow across installed circuit packs and leads to
decrease in their cooling. Circuit packs could potentially be subject to failure as their
temperatures increases.
Replacing a card (general)

NOTICE
Service-disruption hazard
A card reseat is service affecting if the card is currently carrying services. To discover if
any services are currently carried over a card, perform the procedure Checking for
services on a port in User Provisioning Guide. If there are services currently carried over
the card, it may be best to wait for a maintenance window before reseating the card.
Cooling airflow is critically important for reliable transmission. Every slot in the subrack
requires a circuit pack (card) or circuit pack blank to ensure proper airflow. Do not
remove old cards until new cards are fully prepared for installation. New cards should be
installed within 5 mins of old card removal to maintain proper airflow and cooling for the
other cards within the subrack.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Ensure that the replacement card is unpacked and prepared for immediate installation
before starting any other work.

...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Verify that you have an unobstructed extraction path. Tie back any adjacent fibers that are
affected by the card extraction.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Unlock the card latch. Place a thumb or finger on the latch release/locking pin located
behind the latch cover and open the latch by lifting and out. This partially unseats the card
from the backplane.
Note: For EC/Power filters, a metal latch is provided on the left; and for SFCs, no
latches are available.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Hold the card by the open latch and slide the card out of the slot, being careful not to pull
on any connected fibers on the NE. You will encounter some resistance while the card is
seated on the backplane. Use a gentle pulling force to unseat the card from the backplane.
Slide the card out of the slot. When the card is almost removed, place a hand under the
card to avoid dropping it when it is fully removed from the shelf.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Place the card in an ESD bag and set it aside nearby so that you can immediately continue
with Step 9.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Hold replacement card with one hand on the faceplate and the other on bottom of the card
PCB.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

10

...................................................................................................................................................................................................

11

Slide the card along the card guides into the slot. When the card is partially inserted,
grasp the card by the latch, with the latch in the open position.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

12

Ensure that no fibers from adjacent cards are in the way, and slide the card into the slot.
You will encounter some resistance when the card contacts the backplane. Use gentle
force to fully seat the card on the backplane.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

13

Lock the card into place by closing the latches. As the latches close, they push against the
latching tabs on the shelf or cross member, further seating the card. Continue to close the
latches until they are flush with the card faceplate, locking the card in place.

Procedure

This procedure describes the steps to install a 4DPA2/4DPA4 card.


...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Place the card in an ESD bag and set it aside nearby so that you can immediately continue
with the next step.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Hold the replacement card with one hand on the faceplate and the other on bottom of the
card PCB.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Align the card PCB with the card guides.


...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Slide the card along the card guides into the slot. When the card is partially inserted,
grasp the card by the latch, with the latch in the open position.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Ensure that no fibers from adjacent cards are in the way, and slide the card into the slot.
You will encounter some resistance when the card contacts the backplane. Use gentle
force to fully seat the card on the backplane.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Lock the card into place by closing the latches. As the latches close, they push against the
latching tabs on the shelf or cross member, further seating the card. Continue to close the
latches until they are flush with the card faceplate, locking the card in place.

Configure GNE for management system access


Background

The NE, if configured as a Gateway Network Element (GNE), can connect to an Element
Management System (EMS) through the OAMP port. The IP address must be provisioned
and the OAMP port enabled to use this port. In addition, an IP route must be established
to route connections to the RNEs.
Purpose

Use this procedure to provision and enable the OAMP port, so that the NE can act as a
Gateway Network Element. The procedure also provisions the IP route information to
allow connection to RNEs. Not all NEs (that is, RNEs) require this provisioning. Refer to
the site documentation.

Example configuration of FTP server

....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Example configuration of FTP server


Background

There are different FTP server software applications available. This procedure provides
detailed configuration instructions using one of the most common platforms, FileZilla.
However, the steps can be used as a reference for configuring other FTP server
applications. Consult the documentation for your specific FTP server software for
detailed instructions.
Note:
1. The FTP server for software download and Database Backup are configured
separately. FTP/SFTP can be provisioned for Software download server, and
TFTP/FTP/TFTP can be provisioned for Database Backup server.
2. Note that TFTP is sensitive to the number of the GCC/OSC spans, but SFTP/FTP
is not. Therefore, for DB back-up case, TFTP is not recommended for multi-span
configuration over GCC/OSC. Generally, SFTP/FTP is recommended for
multi-span download/backup case.
3. FTP and SFTP has a similar transfer speed for both DB backup and Software
download. Generally, FTP is faster than SFTP, as it has a higher overhead
efficiency.
4. However, Note that FTP has Windows/Linux Compatibility issue for Software
download . If the FTP Server is a Windows Server, the download speed will be
reduced by half . The SFTP Sever is generally working fine in both
Windows/Linux for both Software downloading and DB backup.
Purpose

This procedure provides more detail to the steps listed in FTP server preparation
(p. 4-19).
Prerequisites

The FTP server application must be downloaded and installed on the PC. The FileZilla
server software can be downloaded from (http://filezillaproject.org/download.php?type=
server).
Procedure

Disable the firewall on the PC


...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Provision new wavelength service


Overview

This procedure provides the steps required to provision a new wavelength service
between transponders installed at two end-point nodes. The procedure assumes that the
transponders have already been installed and fibered in the nodes, and the Alcatel-Lucent
1354 RM-PhM server is up and connected to the network.
Procedure
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Identify the transponders that have been installed and fibered to carry the wavelength
service.
Note: When a CFP must be installed, remove the OT circuit pack from the shelf and
then replace or insert the CFP. Ensure the CFP is seated securely and seat the OT
circuit pack.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Right-click on one of the nodes at the wavelength end point and select Provision ->
Physical Topology...from the menu. See Figure 5-1, 1354 RM-PhM physical topology
menu (p. 5-2).
Figure 5-1 1354 RM-PhM physical topology menu

...................................................................................................................................................................................................

The Physical Topology window will display as shown in Figure 5-2, Alcatel-Lucent
1354 RM-PhM physical topology window (p. 5-3).

Click the Line (L1) port of the transponder card.

If a B-end Point connection is displayed at the bottom of the screen and matches how
the transponder is physically fibered, skip to Step 7.

If a B-end Point is not displayed, the topological link needs to be provisioned.


Continue to the next step.
Note: Typically the topological link for the transponder will only be present if it was
part of the EPT plan.

...................................................................................................................................................................................................

With the transponder Line (L1) port still highlighted, select the port where the other end
of the fiber is connected (CWR8, CWR8-88, or filter).
Note: If the other port is on a different shelf, first select the appropriate shelf on the
equipment tree on the left.

Perform power adjustments


Overview

If the path through the network the new service takes crosses lines whose optical power
management type is set to Manual, the system will create expected powers and default
power deviations at only two key points per line, the ingress line's ingress LD Sig Out
port and the egress line's LD Line Out port. The goal of the service turn-up procedure is
to modify the light path's power using a combination of add target power setpoint
adjustment, LD gain adjustment, and manual pad placement to try to reach the expected
powers set up by the system.
Note: Lines of FOADM nodes and lines following FOADM lines, services in
existence before the new service is added may deviate from their initial target powers.
This is normal and the deviation thresholds around the expected power have been
calculated to take into account this shift in per channel powers.
Procedure
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Wait for 2 mins for the power to ramp up after creating the service before continuing.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Click the Power (A-Z) button on the wavelength service completion window (See Figure
5-13, Alcatel-Lucent 1354 RM-PhM provision wavelength service step 5 (p. 5-12))

Provision transponder for connection to an unmanaged


network element
Background

The line interface of the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-4 transponders can be fibered directly
to another network element, unmanaged by the Alcatel-Lucent 1354 RM-PhM for
transport. For this application, the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-4 transponder provides a
signal (without WaveTracker encoding) to the unmanaged network. The transponder itself
is installed in an Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-4 shelf and is managed by the Alcatel-Lucent
1830 PSS-4 node. This interworking application is sometimes called the Dangling OT
Feature.
A dangling OT, or a group of dangling OTs, are Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-4 optical
transponders which are plugged into an Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-4 shelf and managed by
the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-4 node. However, the dangling OT line side optical ports
(transmit and receive) are not fiber-connected to a CWR or OMD pack in the
Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-4 NE.
Overview

This procedure provides the steps required to provision an Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-4
transponder to transmit to an unmanaged NE. The procedure assumes that the
Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-4 network has been installed and commissioned, and the
Alcatel-Lucent 1354 RM-PhM server is up and connected to the network.
Procedure
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Install the transponder in the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-4 shelf that will be connected to
the unmanaged NE, if not installed.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

5-min timer during service turn-up

....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

5-min timer during service turn-up


Overview

A network service created by OS (for example, PhM), is comprised of a number of


Photonic Cross-connects on each of the nodes between the service end-points. The
following figure shows a service (red line) created from Node A to Node Z through Node
C. In regard to this service, the Node A is the add node, Node C is the thru node and
Node Z is the drop node.
Figure 5-43 An example of network service

When a service is created, the related optical channel can be provisioned to be modulated
by keys based on proprietary Wavelength Tracker technology, and we call such service is
keyed service. Similarly for service without the channel modulated, we call it un-keyed
service.
The keys are actually the identification for each channel in the optical network. During
photonic cross-connect creation, the keys are assigned by the system/network
automatically (that is, auto-keyed) or by user manually (that is, manual-keyed). With the
assistance of keys, the network can easily support wavelength routes tracking, power
management, performance monitoring and fault location and so on. From a power
management perspective, the Software Controlled Optical Transmission (SCOT)
algorithm can automatically adjust the optical channel power in the network, based on
retrieved optical channel power information for keyed service, this is also called
auto-power management.

....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

During the service creation or deletion, some transmission defects could exist for a while.
However, it is not necessary to raise the transient condition during service turn-up. For
instance, from optical power management perspective, the channel power ramps towards
the goal, there is no need to raise Optical Channel Optical Power Out of Range (OCH
OPR), since this is an expected behavior at service turn-up. When the wavelength is being
turned up, there is no need to report any OCH layer defects for the service, since we know
the wavelength is in a transitory state. The timer length has been chosen to be consistent
with the worst case time for power levels to completely settle, when all the lines along the
lightpath are auto-power managed.
Turn-up process for auto-power managed and auto-keyed service

When a service is created by the OS (PhM), then the photonic cross-connections are also
created along the path including add node, drop node and thru node (if present). Upon the
creation of photonic cross-connection, the Optical Channel Payload Defect Indication
(OCH PDI) condition is immediately raised on add node (at the point of Wavelength key
encoder, for example, SVAC or OT line port). Upon the creation of the photonic
cross-connection, the Optical Channel Forward Defect Indication (OCH FDI) condition is
immediately raised on the through and drop nodes at the node ingress point (ingress OA
port). While OCH PDI or OCH FDI is raised, other OCH conditions are masked (for
example, OCH OPR, OCH LOS, and so on) on the node along the path of the channel.
Note that OCH PDI and OCH FDI are not reported conditions, meaning that they are not
issued off node to an NMS or alarm monitoring system; they are used only to suppress the
reporting of other conditions by degrading their severity to not reported. For example, at
the drop node the OT line port may see LOS-P during turn-up (normally critical service
affecting), and this is degraded to not reported.

Figure 5-44 An example of turn-up process for an auto-power managed and


auto-keyed service

The add node will send information indicating whether or not the channel for the photonic
cross-connection at the add node is leaving the node with appropriate power. Initially
when the add photonic cross-connection is created the node advertises that the channel is
not at appropriate power.
The Software Controlled Optical Transmission (SCOT) algorithm on add node will ramp
the optical channel power towards the target power at the node egress. When the egress
target power is reached within a defined tolerance, the node emits a Link State
Advertisement (LSA, distribute key information) informing downstream nodes that it is
launching power and starts a 5-minute timer to clear its OCH PDI. When downstream
nodes (thru node and drop node) receive the LSA, they also begin 5-minute timers to
clear their own OCH FDI condition. When the timers expire, the PDI/FDI conditions are
lowered, and any other OCH-related conditions will be visible if present, for example the
LOS-P condition at the OT line port at drop node will be reported with original severity of
Critical.

....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Note:

The timer period is 10-minute in the case the node is designed and deployed in a
long haul optical transmission context.
The PSS32/16 DWDM application always requires OA at the NE boundary. If the
ingress OA is not provisioned, then there will be no place to report OCH FDI.
However, the user would still be able to see OCH FDI information in Photonic
cross-connection secondary state.
Above example Figure 5-44, An example of turn-up process for an auto-power
managed and auto-keyed service (p. 5-43) is only for A-to-Z direction. A
bi-directional service will have similar conditions/processes raised/ongoing in the
other direction.

Turn-up process for auto-power managed and manual-keyed service

For auto-power managed and manual-keyed service, the service turn-up process is similar
to the auto-power managed and auto-keyed case. The difference is that for the auto-power
managed and auto-keyed case, the 5-minute timer is started once the thru node and drop
node receives the LSA message carrying key info emitted from add node, while for
auto-power managed and manual-keyed service the 5-minute timer is started once the
local Photonic cross-connection is provisioned (during this process the keys for ingress
direction and egress direction are manually assigned by user). This is actually the
difference between auto-keyed and manual-keyed cases, irrelevant of auto-power
managed or manual-power managed.
For manual-power managed and keyed service, irrespective of auto-keyed or
manual-keyed, the system/network will not automatically adjust the optical power. The
user needs to set the power/attenuation/gain manually along the service path. This
includes the OT line port, MVAC/SVAC, fast eVOA, CWR, OA and so on. The 5-minute
timer is supported for this case. However, since this procedure may take longer than
5-minutes blackout period, it is possible that alarms (LOS-P severity transitions from Not
Reported to Critical) will be seen during manual power adjustment.
One exceptional behavior of manual-keyed case compared with auto-keyed case,
irrespective of auto-power managed or manual-power managed, is that the OCH FDI or
OCH PDI condition will not be raised. Therefore, it is invisible to user, although the
minute timer to suppress OT alarm (for example, LOS-P reported as Not Reported) is still
supported.
For manual-power managed and unkeyed service, there is no OCH FDI or OCH PDI
suppression mechanism or 5-minutes timer, therefore the OT alarm will be normally
reported (for example, LOS-P reported with severity as Critical).
Above behaviors are normal for Optical Supervisory Channel (OSC) being ready.
Although Generic Communication Channel (GCC) is also able to distribute the LSA
message carrying key info, the SCOT auto-power management is only supported when
OSC channel is ready.

5-min timer during service turn-up

....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

In case of both OSC and GCC not ready, there is no channel to communicate LSA in the
network. For this case, the photonic cross-connects must be created as manually keyed.
When a manually keyed connection is created (whether auto-power managed or
manual-power managed), the OCH FDI and OCH PDI countdown timers begin
immediately after photonic cross-connect creation. As described above, OCH layer
conditions will be degraded to not reported until the timer expires, after which they will
be reported with their normal severity.
If though wrong provisioning, some of the photonic cross-connects were created as auto
keyed when there is no OSC or GCC ready to communicate LSAs in the network, then
the nodes would raise OCH FDI or OCH PDI as normal. The add node could clear its
OCH PDI since the information of power achieved is local, and it can begin its
countdown timer. However, through or drop node cross-connects would not receive the
LSA for power achieved from the add node; therefore the cross-connects would remain in
OCH FDI and would cause the other OCH layer defects to be not reported. This case of
wrong provisioning.

Network commissioning background


Network planning overview

The first stage before deploying the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-4 is network planning using
the Engineering Planning Tool (EPT). Refer to the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 Photonic Service
Switch 36/32/16 (PSS-36/PSS-32/PSS-16) Release 6.0 Engineering and Planning Tool
User Guide for the procedures used to plan the network. During the planning stage the
equipment required to meet the demands of the network is defined. The network can be
planned to support demands in the future that are not required in the first phase of
deployment. A network is comprised of one or more systems planned in the EPT.
Generally the nodes and fiber spans between nodes will comprise a linear or ring
topology for each system. In a static OADM system, an obvious ring or linear topology
may not be apparent; in this case the topology is referred to as a mesh topology.
When the network is planned and validated the EPT will produce separate commissioning
files for each of the systems that comprise the network (see the following). These files are
used by the Commissioning and Power Balancing (CPB) tool when commissioning the
systems. For more details on the commissioning file format and contents, refer to the
Alcatel-Lucent 1830 Photonic Service Switch 36/32/16 (PSS-36/PSS-32/PSS-16) Release
6.0 Engineering and Planning Tool User Guide.
Decomposing networks into constituent systems

The EPT segments networks into systems. The CPB tool is designed to operate on one
system at a time. Terminal points in the network and colorless add/drop ports of CWR8 or
CWR8-88 cards demarcate one system from another. Figure 6-1, Decomposition of
mesh network into constituent systems (p. 6-3) illustrates a mesh network. System (1) is
a TOADM ring system, system (2) is a TOADM linear system, system (3) is a TOADM
linear system and systems (4), (5) and (6) are linear FOADM systems. Notice that
systems (4), (5) and (6) are separate FOADM systems due to the fact there is no express
path between them, and they are joined at a multi-degree FOADM NE using loop
connections (channel routing). Also notice that some lines can be auto power managed
and other lines must be manually power managed. All lines connected intranode to create
a FOADM node with line count higher than two must be manually power managed. The
topology and the power management settings of the lines that make up the topology of a
system determine the level of support provided by the Alcatel-Lucent 1354 RM-PhM and
CPB for maintaining optical power levels, upgrading equipment and commissioning each
system. The EPT will produce a commissioning file in .xml format that can be used by
the CPB tool to commission the systems. The content of the file will depend on the type
of equipment found on each line of a system.

Use of the CPB tool

The CPB tool can be used in conjunction with Alcatel-Lucent 1354 RM-PhM or can also
be installed and used as a stand-alone tool. The Provisioning, Commissioning, and Power
Balancing menus and respective functionality of the CPB tool integrated in
Alcatel-Lucent 1354 RM-PhM and the stand-alone CPB are the same. However, the
stand-alone CPB tool requires the user to have access to another Network Management
System (for example, OMS, INC, and so on) or utilize the NE built in user interfaces

Commissioning, and Power Balancing the Network Element that would have otherwise
been performed by utilizing the Alcatel-Lucent 1354 RM-PhM.
Keyed versus unkeyed OCh

There are two distinct types of optical cross-connections, or OCh, that are supported by
the system.
These are:

Keyed OCh: The optical channel is Wavelength Tracker (WT) encoded with Wave
Keys, and can be decoded at WT decode points throughout the network. WT decoders
can raise WT-related alarms for keyed OCh, and will show per channel power levels.
Keyed OCh can be supported on TOADM or FOADM network elements. Keyed OCh
can be transported on lines whose power management settings are Auto or Manual.
Unkeyed OCh: The optical channel is not Wavelength Tracker encoded with Wave
Keys. At WT decoder locations no per channel power levels are reported for unkeyed
OCh, and WT-related alarms are not raised. Unkeyed OCh are only supported on
FOADM network elements. Unkeyed OCh can only be transported on lines whose
power management settings are Manual.

Keyed and unkeyed OCh are not permitted to be mixed on the same network element.
Network designs must be keyed or unkeyed.
Note: Due to the restriction that unkeyed OCh cannot be transported on Auto SCOT
lines, all NE optical lines in the network must be set to SCOT type Manual.

Preconditioning procedure
Purpose

Use this procedure to ensure that the network and PC is ready for Greenfield
commissioning. This procedure should be completed on all constituent systems as
described in Decomposing networks into constituent systems (p. 6-2) and all network
elements that will be commissioned.
Background

The procedures in the following sections relate to commissioning of a Greenfield system.


A Greenfield system is one that has never been commissioned previously and does not
carry services. These procedures can also be used if all services are removed from a
system to recommission a system. Refer to the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 1354 RM-PhM
Photonic Manager Release 9.1 EMS Reference Guide for information on maintaining
existing systems.
The procedures in this chapter assume that the customer data communications network
has not been established yet. Therefore, the procedures have been written assuming that
the integration will be completed using a PC directly connected to one of the network
elements in the system to be commissioned.

Commission a FOADM system


Background

A FOADM system may be a ring, linear, or mesh system. The lines on FOADM nodes
with degree 2 or greater are manually power managed. Because of this, OTs must be
installed and wavelength services provisioned to complete commissioning on a FOADM
system.
The following requirements must be met regarding the wavelength/commissioning
services:
1. A commissioning service must cross an express path that will be used in the system at
least once during commissioning to allow the calculation and placement of
attenuating pads (if necessary) in FOADM nodes.
2. A commissioning service must cross every ingress LD in the system at least once
during commissioning to allow the user to adjust the gain of the LD.
3. A commissioning service must cross every line in the system that is Automatically
optical power managed at least once during commissioning to allow the user to trigger
the ingress and egress adjustment functions.
The optimal commissioning routes to provision may have been predetermined during
network planning. If there are no predetermined routes, the user should determine which
paths have not been commissioned and create services over one those paths following the
guidelines above. (Generally it is advantageous to determine the longest routes possible to
minimize the number of transponder deployments or redeployments necessary during the
commissioning phase). When choosing a channel to use for the commissioning service it
is always best to choose one near the middle of the C-band. For example, if bands A and F
of the SFD5 channel plan are dropped along the path, bands B through E are free; choose
the channel at frequency 193.8 THz or 194.1 THz because these channels are nearest the
center of the frequency band.
Figure 6-16, Commissioning service for a FOADM system (p. 6-24) shows a FOADM
linear network with a commissioning service that adds and drops at each of the terminal
NEs of the linear system. This service must not use a channel from bands A, B, C, or G of
the five-channel filter channel plan. In this case a channel at frequency 193.8 THz or
194.1 THz could be used. This commissioning service satisfies the three goals listed
above. Note that cases will exist where a single service cannot be used due to the planned
channel add/drop at each network element. In that case two services will be required that
overlap at least one of the FOADM node express paths.

Procedure

The following is the procedure to Commission a FOADM system:


...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Commissioning a FOADM system requires the availability of field personnel physically


present at optical add/drop nodes to provide attenuating pad changes if required. Ensure
that field personnel are present as stated in the Preconditioning procedure (p. 6-5).
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Ensure that the provision system with plan wizard has been run and that the nodes that
make up the system to be commissioned have been provisioned, as stated in Provision
the system (p. 6-14).
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Ensure that the transponder cards are installed as described in the Preconditioning
procedure (p. 6-5).
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Identify the wavelength service to be created.

...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Identify the two transponders at the end points of the service to be created. Determine the
service type that will be provisioned between the transponders.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Follow the procedure, Provision new wavelength service (p. 5-2), to provision the
commissioning service.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Wait for 2 mins after the service creation for the power to ramp up before continuing.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

If the wavelength service provisioning completion window is still open as shown in


Figure 6-17, Alcatel-Lucent 1354 RM-PhM wavelength service provisioning
completion (p. 6-25), skip to Step 11 . Otherwise continue to the next step.

Commission a system with unkeyed FOADM lines


Background

Refer to Keyed versus unkeyed OCh (p. 6-4) for more information about unkeyed
networks. Note that the EPT design will explicitly state that the network design is
unkeyed.
An unkeyed system must be commissioned using wavelength (or commissioning)
services using the following guidelines.
1. A commissioning service must cross an express path that will be used in the system at
least once during commissioning to allow the calculation and placement of
attenuating pads (if necessary) in FOADM nodes.
2. A commissioning service must cross every ingress LD in the system at least once
during commissioning to allow the user to adjust the gain of the LD.
3. A commissioning service must be added at every FOADM-1 (terminal) egress line in
the system at least once during commissioning to verify that the equipment is installed
correctly.
The optimal commissioning routes to provision may have been pre-determined during
network planning. If there are no pre-determined routes then the user must determine
which paths have not been commissioned yet and create a service over one of those paths.
Generally it is advantageous to determine the longest routes possible to minimize the
number of transponder deployments or redeployments necessary during the
commissioning phase. When choosing a channel to use for the commissioning service it is
best to choose one near the middle of the C-band. For example, if bands A and F of the
SFD5 channel plan are dropped along the path, bands B through E are free; choose the
channel at frequency 193.8 THz or 194.1 THz because these channels are nearest to the
center of the frequency band.
Figure 6-16, Commissioning service for a FOADM system (p. 6-24) shows a FOADM
linear network with a commissioning service that adds and drops at each of the terminal
NEs of the linear system. This service must not use a channel from bands A, B, C, or G of
the five-channel filter channel plan. In this case a channel at frequency 193.8 THz or
194.1 THz could be used. This commissioning service satisfies the three goals listed
above. Note that cases will exist where a single service cannot be used due to the planned
channel add/drop at each network element. In this case two services will be required that
overlap at least one of the FOADM node express paths.

Figure 6-31 Commissioning service for a FOADM system

Procedure

The following is the procedure to Commission a system with unkeyed FOADM lines:
Important! When following this procedure, note that the ALPFGT has a small gain
setting range in which the gain profile across the C-band is flat. Therefore, Alcatel-Lucent
strongly recommends operating the ALPFGT LD within the Gmin to Gmax parameters from
the EPT. If the gain setting required to eliminate the power error calculated in the
procedure would be outside the gain range it is better to accept the power error and set the
gain setting to the nearest boundary of the gain range (Gmin or Gmax).
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Commissioning a FOADM system requires the availability of field personnel physically


present at optical add/drop nodes to provide attenuating pad changes if required. Ensure
that they are present as stated in the Preconditioning procedure (p. 6-5).
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Ensure that the provision system with plan wizard available in CPB has been run and that
the nodes that make up the system to be commissioned have been provisioned, as stated
in Provision the system (p. 6-14).

Obtain new values for Poutdownstream and Poutupstream and recalculate the delta value using
the formula in Step 26. If the absolute delta value is greater than 0.5 dB wait five secs,
and then change the power gain value again. Continue the iterations until the delta is less
than 0.5 dB waiting five secs between changes.
Note: If the gain setting is outside the limits of Maximum Gain and Minimum Gain
there is likely to be an upstream loss problem that must be identified and corrected.
Possible reasons for the problem could be one of the following.

The Poutupstream reading changed due to a disruption at the upstream NE.

Failure to place an input fixed attenuating pad after a short span. Check the EPT
design.

The upstream span loss is too high or too low.


The patch panel connection loss between the fiber span and Line In port of the
receiving network element is too high.

For topologies where the receive direction amplification is provided by an


ALPFGT pack, the loss between the receiving network element Line In port and
the ALPFGT Sig In port may be too high.

Prepare unkeyed FOADM system for additional services


Background

After completing the procedureCommission a system with unkeyed FOADM lines


(p. 6-42), through path of the system has been commissioned. This is sufficient to set the
gain settings of the amplifiers in the system and determine the value of any fixed
attenuators required on through transmission path. Every service addition at a FOADM
node in an unkeyed network would require a remeasurement of the output power using an
OSA or wavelength meter to determine the correct add path power to reach the egress
Line Out target power. An optional additional step in commissioning is to determine the
required add path power from each SFD filter to achieve the Line Out target power. The
values determined cannot be stored in the network element, however the operator may
wish to record the values for reference so that when additional services are added using
the SFDs already installed, the required target power for the add path can be set directly.
Transponders are fibered to the SFDs that require the target power. Wavelength services
will be created across the SFDs to determine the values.
Procedure

The following is the procedure to prepare unkeyed FOADM system for additional
services.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Determine the transponder fibered to the SFD for the degree of interest. Create a
wavelength service terminated at that transponder using the procedure Provision new
wavelength service (p. 5-2).
Note: Use a channel from the middle of the channel set supported by the filter.

Set opposite port of Unidirectional Amplifier

....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Set opposite port of Unidirectional Amplifier


Overview

The opposite direction port parameter will define the association between two
unidirectional ports. So a Bidirectional cross-connection can be used with different
unidirectional topology connections.
The following are the unidirectional LD packs:

AM2125A - LINEIN, LINEOUT

AM2125B - LINEIN, LINEOUT


AM2318A - LINEIN, LINEOUT
Note: The opposite direction port parameter can only be provisioned on ports that
have an external topology connection. If the port is not externally connected, then the
NE software denies any attempt to provision the associated port.

Steps to provision/delete opposite direction port


...................................................................................................................................................................................................

The opposite direction port parameter for each direction of the topology connection can
be provisioned from either port.
For example, either of the following CLI commands will configure the opposite direction
port for both ports.
config interface card shelf/slot/LINEIN oppdirection shelf/slot/
LINEOUT
config interface card shelf/slot/LINEOUT oppdirection shelf/slot/
LINEIN
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

The opposite direction port parameter for each direction of the topology connection can
be deleted from either port.
For example, either of the following CLI commands will delete the opposite direction
port for both ports.
config interface card shelf/slot/LINEIN oppdirection delete
config interface card shelf/slot/LINEOUT oppdirection delete

Disconnect PC from the Network


Overview

The CIT provisioning was changed to allow discovery of all the network elements. See
Establish connection to the network. Once the commissioning is completed, the NE CIT
provisioning must be returned to the original settings.
Procedure

The following is the procedure to disconnect the PC from the network:


...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Telnet to the temporary CIT port address and log in to CLI following the procedure
described in Connect to the NE for CLI access (p. 4-16).
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Type config interface ec 1/1/cit red disable and <Enter>


Result: This turns off route redistribution.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Type config interface ec 1/1/cit ip <ip> and <Enter>


Where <ip> is the original IP address of the CIT port before it was changed.
Note: Typically this is the default IP address, 172.16.0.1.
Sample output is as shown in the following:
WARNING: Changing the local ethernet port IP address may result
in a loss of IP connectivity to this network element
from the local ethernet port only. DCN connectivity will
not be affected.

Enter yes to confirm, no to cancel.


...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Type yes and <Enter>


Result: Communication to the NE is lost. Close the telnet session.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Open a Windows command window and type ipconfig /release and <Enter>.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Understanding the loss report


Background

The loss report is generated in the following circumstances:

When the network commissioning wizard completes, regardless of whether it


completes successfully.
After adding, removing, or upgrading an NE.
After performing a network power balance.

On demand by the user.

The loss report is only fully supported for systems comprised of Auto managed lines. The
PhM only includes the ingress LD of a FOADM through node and excludes through path
of a FOADM through node.
Overview

The report is generated as an HTML file. Errors are highlighted in red. Warnings are
highlighted in yellow.

Report content

A summary is provided for each NE in the ring, indicating the status of the last ingress
and egress adjust. The summary is colored red if the NE has an error condition, or yellow
if the NE has a warning condition. The Last ingress result and Last egress result fields
indicate the cause of the error or warning, if applicable. The possible errors and warnings
are detailed in Troubleshooting failed adjustments (p. 6-74).
The following information is reported for each span in the path.

The actual loss (or gain) for the span, in dB


The minimum allowable loss (or gain) for the span, in dB, from the EPT
The maximum allowable loss (or gain) for the span, in dB, from the EPT
The loss value (commission or real time)

NE loss trace Z to A

The direction of the commissioning signal.

Actual Loss (Gain) (dB)

The Actual loss is the measured loss between two consecutive


Wavelength Tracker detect points. In the case of an amplifier,
the Actual Gain is the current gain setting of the amplifier.
The actual loss must fall between the values specified for the
LPT Min and Max losses. If the adjusts for the node are
successful then no highlighting is applied to the components in
the node and losses outside the range are noted as Loss
accommodated. If at least one of the adjusts for the node in a
given direction has failed recently then highlighting is applied
and action by the user is required. See the following for
highlighting rules.
Note: In the case of a loss report generated after the Greenfield
commissioning wizard has run, some lines may not have been
completed, either due to upstream failures or because lines were
excluded by the wizard. In this case the Actual loss field
indicates n/a for the loss measurements because losses have not
been calculated yet for those lines of the system.

Explanation

LPT Max Loss (Gain) (dB)

The maximum expected card or span loss that is used to plan


the network.
The maximum span loss is obtained by the sum of the nominal
span loss and user-defined patch-panel and fiber loss margin.
Maximum card loss is defined by considering the loss of the
specific component and appropriate connector losses within and
between cards. The component loss is obtained from a
statistical analysis of the component loss data. Total losses
within an NE are derived by a statistical RMS addition of all
the individual cards along through path of the NE.

LPT Nominal Loss (Gain)


(dB)

The nominal card or span loss used to plan the network. Total
nominal loss within an NE is derived by the linear addition of
the nominal card losses.

LPT Min Loss (Gain) (dB)

The minimum expected card or span loss used to plan the


network.
Loss value indicates how the loss value reported was obtained:

Provides additional information, as described in Notes field of


loss report (p. 6-64).

Loss value field of loss report

The loss value field indicates how the displayed loss was calculated. Amplifier gains

Commission

Commission is displayed when there are no wavelength


services with WT readings available when the report is
generated. The displayed loss is the loss that was calculated
during the last commissioning adjustment.
Commissioning adjustments are defined as:
1. Kitless commissioning adjustments used to commission a
system.
2. Or, WT-based power adjustments when the line has not
been commissioned.

Note

Explanation

Warning: Loss x.x dB too


high.

The measured loss is x.x dB higher than the maximum loss.

Warning: Loss x.x dB too low

The measured loss is x.x dB lower than the minimum loss.

Error: Loss x.x dB too high

The measured loss is x.x dB higher than the maximum loss and
is associated with a failed power management adjustment.

Note: The level Warning or Error is based on whether the


loss is just outside the PT range within 1 dB, or whether the
loss is outside of the PT range + 1 dB. However, if the adjust
succeeds the Error is changed to a Warning .

If the power management adjustment succeeded, this would be


a Warning instead of an error.
Error: Loss x.x dB too low

The measured loss is x.x dB lower than the minimum loss and
is associated with a failed power management adjustment.
If the power management adjustment succeeded, this would be
a Warning instead of an error.

Loss Accommodated.

The loss is outside the planned range, but the loss was
accommodated by the auto power management adjustment.

Average attenuation of x.x dB


applied to range

For a CWR8 thru, WSS thru or ROADM thru path x.x dB was
applied to the planned loss range. This equals the applied
attenuation of the optical device in the path.

Explanation

Power not found

No optical power was found that could be used to calculate a


loss.

Error: unable to read loss


value

A measured loss could not be calculated and a commissioning


loss was not available on the network element.

(Target gain = xx.x dB)

The adjustment function calculated a gain of xx.x dB which did


not fall within the planned gain range.

Loss within 10% of max

The measured loss is within 10% of the maximum planned


value. Several components within 10% of the max may cause
an auto power management adjustment to fail.

Upstream loss too high

The ingress adjustment has failed and the loss preceding the
ingress LD is too high.

x dB of y dB repair margin
consumed

Indicates that the ingress adjustment has set the gain of the
ingress LD within the repair margin allocated for this LD. The
gain is approaching the maximum gain planned for this
amplifier.

DCM present

Indicates that a dispersion compensation device is between the


two detect points used to calculate the loss.

Highlighting in the loss report

If errors or warnings are generated during commissioning or during an in-service power


adjustment, the relevant cells within the loss report are highlighted to help identify the
source of the problems. Warnings are highlighted yellow. Errors are highlighted red.
Highlighting is conditional on whether the report was generated during commissioning or
during an in-service operation, and based on the last adjust results for each NE.
In the following table, the rule applies for the combination of ingress line to egress line,
that is the egress line is on different degree of the node from the ingress line.

Overview

The System Loss Report of the CPB tool displays the loss per channel through a network
element from ingress degree to egress degree. There are two-target applications for this
NE loss report. One use is to check the pad values selected during commissioning of the
FOADM network elements. The second use is to quickly audit a FOADM node in-service
to discover if any excess loss exists within the node if optical power out of range alarms
are observed on one or more channels.
Prerequisites

Prior to creating a System Loss Report, the user should complete provisioning of the EPT
parameters for the target system. If the system has been commissioned, this prerequisite is
met.
If these parameters are not provisioned, the System Loss Report will not display a target
loss range for the loop or express channels and the expected gain range for the LDs will
also be missing. The user must run the Provision System using plan wizard to provision
the required planning tool parameters prior to creating a System Loss Report. The
parameters in Table 6-5, Minimum EPT parameters for network element (p. 6-67) are
the minimum set of parameters that must be provisioned.

Measured Loss (dB)

The measured loss for each ITU channel provisioned between


the ingress line and egress line.

ITU <channel number>

There are three sections of the table. The first section is the Target Loss Comparison
section. In this section, the loss between the target power per channel at the ingress LD
Sig Out for the ingress line and the egress line LD Line Out is measured. The valid loss
range includes the expected power deviation from the target values.
The second section is the WTD detect point to detect point losses section. In this
section, each row contains the measured loss between two Wavelength Tracker detect
points.
The third section is the Per channel status. In this section, below each ITU channel
column, the status for each channel is reported.

If the loss is measured and in range the status is OK.


If the loss is measured and is too high the status is Too high.

If the loss is measured and is too low the status is Too low.
If the loss was not measured the status is n/a.

The PT Min Loss and PT Max Loss fields show n/a if the planned loss is not set on the
network element, or cannot be calculated, for WTD to WTD losses and the target loss
range, respectively.n/a indicatesnot available.

System report highlighting

If the measured loss reported is outside the planned range by less than or equal to 1 dB
the loss is highlighted yellow. If the measured loss is outside the planned range by more
than 1 dB the loss is highlighted red. If the measured loss is within the planned range the
loss is not highlighted. The WTD to WTD losses are not highlighted if the measured loss
in the Target Loss Comparison is not highlighted.
If a measured loss cannot be calculated no highlighting is applied to the measured loss. If
the planned or target loss range is not available no highlighting is applied.
Troubleshooting using the loss report

Losses that are highlighted Yellow indicate a potential problem. Losses that are
highlighted Red indicate a problem that should be corrected. For a path from an ingress
line that is Manually power managed to an egress line that is Manually power managed
on a FOADM node, the most likely problem is an incorrect pad selection for the optical
connection between the drop side and add side of the path. As removal of an attenuating
pad will break the optical path of the signal, attenuating pad changes should be done
during a maintenance time window.
During service turn-up, the loss report can be used as an aide to ensure that the selected
pad for the new service is correct. After adding the attenuating pad for the new service,
run the loss report to compare the measured loss for the channel to the target loss range.

Appendix A: Fiber cleaning

Overview
Purpose

This chapter describes the Alcatel-Lucent recommended method for the cleaning and
inspection of optical connectors using specific tools and materials that have been proven
to be effective in the assembly and testing of optical transmission equipment. It is critical
that the connector endfaces, optical ports, and bulkheads are clean and free from
particular contamination to assure proper performance and reliability of lightwave
systems. With the modern high speed, high power, and wider bandwidth optical
transmission systems, clean connectors along the optical path are absolutely essential for
successful operation.
Before making any optical connections, perform the Inspect, Clean, Inspect, Connect
(ICIC) process on every jumper connector endface, optical port, and optical bulkhead.
Note: The information in this appendix is applicable to all Alcatel-Lucent optical
products, not just Alcatel-Lucent 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS). There may be
tools and connector types listed that are not applicable to Alcatel-Lucent 1830
PSS-32/PSS-16.

Note: The equipment and material previously listed has been tested and is proven
effective when used in conjunction with this procedure. Substitution of equipment or
materials is at the discretion of the user and is not recommended by Alcatel-Lucent.
Fiber cleaning considerations

Observe the following precautions when handling fibers to prevent contaminates from
adhering to the fibers and creating potential errors and unnecessary losses:

Assume that all fibers are dirty and must be inspected and cleaned before connection
to equipment.
Always inspect fibers for contaminants and clean where required.
Do not remove the protective end caps on fibers or fiber ports until ready to connect.
If it is suspected that a fiber or port was contaminated during test or turn up
procedures, reinspect and clean as necessary.

Cleaning process

The following cleaning procedure is acceptable for field service/installation activities:


...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Remove the dust cap from the connector ferrule exposing the connector end-face.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Open an individual foil packet of a pre-saturated isopropyl alcohol (99% pure) wipe.
Grasp the connector housing and place the connector ferrule end-face perpendicular to the
alcohol wipe.
Drag it against the wipe three times in a figure 8 pattern. This action applies the alcohol
solvent to the end-face and initially loosens and scrubs away organic/solid contaminates.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

If a CLETOP cassette cleaner is not available, proceed with Step 7. Otherwise, hold the
CLETOP cassette cleaner in the palm of your hand with the cassette shutter door facing
up.

Fiber cleaning

Cleaning optical connectors

....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Rotate the cassette lever all the way down with your thumb. Do not release the lever. The
lever advances the dry Luminex cleaning cloth inside the case and simultaneously
opens the shutter. The CLETOP cassette shutter door is now open and ready for cleaning
the connector.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Insert and press the connector ferrule end-face perpendicular against the cleaning cloth in
the first of two slots of the cleaner.
Drag it down in the direction indicated by the arrows on the cleaner. Do not release the
lever of the cassette.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Lift the connector from the first slot and rotate it 90 degrees and repeat the wiping
procedure using the second slot. Be sure that the ferrule is pressed snug against the
cleaning cloth while dragging the ferrule to assure the proper cleaning action.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Release the cassette lever allowing the shutter door to close to its initial position.
Continue with Step 8.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Wrap a Luminex cleaning cloth around the ferrule and rotate the connector housing,
cleaning the outside periphery of ferrule.
Follow this by folding an unused portion of the cloth over the end of the ferrule end-face
and then with light pressure from the thumb, slightly drag the cloth from the center of the
ferrule to the edge while rotating the connector 360 degrees. If the Luminex cleaning
cloth is not available, a lint-free clean room optic wipe can be used. The Luminex
cleaning cloth is washable and can be used multiple times. The optic wipes are single use
and disposable.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Inspect the connector for cleanliness. If necessary, repeat the cleaning process.

Inspecting optical connectors


Connector inspection
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Follow the instructions in the manual provided with the Optical Fiber Scope to view the
ferrule end-face of the fiber under inspection.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

The visual area of the ferrule end-face (ferrule and fiber) as observed by the inspection
system/scope should be free of any contaminates. Repeat the Cleaning Procedure if the
fiber end-face does not meet the following requirements:
Requirement:

No fixed type of contamination (contaminates that remain at the same location after three
wet-dry cleaning cycles), regardless of size, is allowed in the restricted area of the glass
fiber end-face.
Note: The restricted area is defined as ~66 micron () diameter for both single mode
and multi-mode fibers.
Requirement:

No chips, cracks, or scratches are allowed near the core of the glass fiber end-face.
Requirement:

No large floating (loose) contaminates are allowed on the glass fiber and ceramic ferrule
end-face.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

After the connector has been verified to be cleaned, it is immediately inserted into the
adapter buildout of the optical component. This assures maximum cleanliness and
effectiveness of the connector.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

If the cleaned connector cannot be connectorized with a corresponding adapter, the


connector ferrule must be protected with a connector dust cap. Before placing the cap on
the ferrule, ensure that the cap is clean. This can be accomplished by inserting a CLETOP
stick cleaner (swab) of the same inside diameter as the cap (either 2.5 mm or 1.25 mm)
and rotate the stick 360 degrees three times. Following this procedure, carefully place the
cap over the ferrule. When the cleaned connector is ready for assembly, it should be
reinspected for cleanliness prior to connectorization.

Cleaning other optical components


Fiber adapters or circuit pack connectors

During testing and/or troubleshooting activities, it is necessary to clean the optical


buildout adapter or the circuit pack connector. The following procedure is recommended.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Using the appropriate CLETOP stick cleaner (2.5 mm for SC, ST, and FC connectors,
1.25 mm for LC connectors) dampen the stick cleaner with Ethyl alcohol using the
alcohol wipe. Insert the stick cleaner into the adapter rotating the stick 360 degrees while
inserting. Push/rotate the stick until the stick cleaner is in contact with the connector.
Apply slight pressure upon contact and rotate the stick 360 degrees at least three times.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Remove the stick cleaner, rotating it upon removal.


...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Using a dry CLETOP stick cleaner of appropriate diameter, repeat Step 1. This procedure
cleans the side walls of the adapter and the end-face of the circuit pack connector.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Gently insert the Video Fiber Scope probe into the port until the fiber ferrule comes into
view.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

Verify that the fiber ferrule is clean. Repeat the process in Steps 1 - 3 if the fiber does not
meet the requirements specified in Inspecting optical connectors (p. A-6)

PMD is an inherent property of all optical media. It is caused by the difference in the propagation
velocities of light in the orthogonal principal polarization states of the transmission medium. The
net effect is that if an optical pulse contains both polarization components, then the different
polarization components will travel at different speeds and arrive at different times, smearing the
received optical signal.
