2.13 Simulation Package Loading and Simulation Package


Diffusion
The OptiX OSN equipment provides the functions of simulation package loading and
simulation package diffusion.

Simulation Package Loading


When you need to upload the whole set of the software to an NE, and the mapping between
the board and software is defined according to the format of the simulation software package,
you can use the simulation software package to improve the loading efficiency and upgrade
security, and reduce the operation complexity.
The simulation software package includes:
 All the necessary software to be loaded to the NE
 Package description document that specifies the loading attributes of each software
The simulation software package loading has the following features:
 The user loads the software on an NE basis and through a uniform operation interface.
 The status of the NE does not affect the loading.
 A version rollback is supported for an upgrade failure.

Simulation Package Diffusion


When you use the simulation package simulation method, the simulation software package is
diffused and loaded to all NEs on a network. The diffusion protocol running on the NEs
ensures that the loading process is almost synchronous. As a result, package loading is more
efficient and less manual operations are required.
Simulation package diffusion has the following features:
 Level-by-level package diffusion and synchronous package loading on multiple NEs
 Load sharing
 Balanced utilization of network bandwidths

2.14 Hot Patch

OptiX OSN 3500 Intelligent Optical Transmission
System
Product Overview FunctionFunction

Some equipment requires long-term uninterrupted operation. When a defect is located or a


new requirement needs to be applied to the equipment software, a process of replacing old
codes with new codes should be performed to rectify the defect or realize the new
requirement, without any service interruption. These new codes are referred to as a hot patch.
The hot patch technology has the following features:
 The hot patch solves most of the software problems without affecting services.
 The hot patch effectively decreases the number of software versions and prevents
frequent software version upgrade.
 The hot patch operation does not affect services and can be performed remotely. The hot
patch also provides a rollback function. This helps to avoid upgrade risks.
 The hot patch can be used as an effective method for locating faults, and thus improves
the efficiency of solving problems.

2.15 Inter-Board Alarm Suppression


The OptiX OSN 3500 supports the suppression of tributary/data board alarms that are raised
as a result of the alarms on the line board.

When there are cross-connections between a line board and a tributary/data board, many
alarms are raised on the tributary/data board if alarms are raised on the line board. These
alarms are all reported to the T2000. Such a large number of alarms can disturb the
troubleshooting and affect the problem solution efficiency. Therefore, the inter-board alarm
suppression function is used to solve this problem.

2.16 PRBS Function


The OptiX OSN 3500 supports the pseudo-random binary sequence (PRBS) test function.

The PRBS function is mainly used for network self-test and maintenance. An NE that
provides the PRBS function can work as a simple device used to analyze if a service path is
faulty. Such analysis can be performed for the NE and the entire network. During deployment
or troubleshooting, the PRBS function realizes the test without a real test device.

2.17 NSF Function


The non-interrupted service forwarding (NSF) function is supported by the Ethernet boards.
With the NSF function, services are not interrupted during an upgrade of the board software
and network processor (NP) software.

A.1 Numerics
1+1 protection An architecture that has one normal traffic signal, one working
SNC/trail, one protection SNC/trail and a permanent bridge. At the
source end, the normal traffic signal is permanently bridged to both
the working and protection SNC/trail. At the sink end, the normal
traffic signal is selected from the better of the two SNCs/trails. Due to
the permanent bridging, the 1+1 architecture does not allow an extra
unprotected traffic signal to be provided.
100BASE-T IEEE 802.3 Physical Layer specification for a 100 Mb/s CSMA/CD
local area network.
100BASE-TX IEEE 802.3 Physical Layer specification for a 100 Mb/s CSMA/CD
local area network over two pairs of Category 5 unshielded twisted-
pair (UTP) or shielded twisted-pair (STP) wire.
10BASE-T Defined in IEEE 802.3, it is an Ethernet specification that uses the
twist pair with the maximum length of 100 meters at 10 Mbit/s for
each network segment.
1:N protection A 1:N protection architecture has N normal service signals, N
working SNCs/trails and one protection SNC/trail. It may have one
extra service signal.
1PPS Pulse per second, which, strictly speaking, is not a time
synchronization signal. This is because 1PPS provides only the
"gauge" corresponding to the UTC second, but does not provide the
information about the day, month, or year. Therefore, 1PPS is used as
the reference for frequency synchronization. On certain occasions,
1PPS can also be used on other interfaces for high precision timing.

display and save the alarms according to the filtering states of the
alarms. The filtered alarms are not displayed and saved on the N2000
BMS, but still monitored.
alarm indication On the cabinet of an NE, there are four indicators in different colors
indicating the current status of the NE. When the green indicator is
on, it indicates that the NE is powered on. When the red indicator is
on, it indicates that a critical alarm is generated. When the orange
indicator is on, it indicates that a major alarm is generated. When the
yellow indicator is on, it indicates that a minor alarm is generated.

Alarm inversion For the port that has already been configured but has no service, this
function can be used to avoid generating relevant alarm information,
thus preventing alarm interference. The alarm report condition of the
NE port is related to the alarm inverse mode (not inverse, automatic
recovery and manual recovery) setting of the NE and the alarm
inversion status (Enable and Disable) setting of the port. When the
alarm inversion mode of NE is set to no inversion, alarms of the port

the port is. When the alarm inversion mode of the NE is set to
automatic recovery, and the alarm inversion state of the port is set to
Enabled, then the alarm of the port will be suppressed. The alarm
inversion status of the port will automatically recover to "not inverse"
after the alarm ends. For the port that has already been configured but
not actually loaded with services, this function can be used to avoid
generating relevant alarm information, thus preventing alarm
interference. When the alarm inverse mode of the NE is set as "not
automatic recovery", if the alarm inversion status of the port is set as
Enable, the alarm of the port will be reported.
Alarm Masking Alarms are detected and reported to the N2000 UMS, and whether the
alarm information is displayed and stored is decided by the function
of alarm masking. These alarms masked are not displayed and stored
on the N2000 UMS.
Alarm Severity Alarm severity is used to identify the impact of a fault on services.
According to ITU-T recommendations, the alarm is classified into
four severities: Critical, Major, Minor, Warning.
Alarm When alarms of various levels occur at the same time, certain lower-
suppression level alarms are suppressed by higher-level alarms, and thus will not
be reported.

T2000 The T2000 is a subnet management system (SNMS). In the
telecommunication management network architecture, the T2000 is
located between the NE level and network level, which can support
all NE level functions and part of the network level management
functions. See also NM.
T2000 LCT A lite version of T2000. It is an element level management system for
the optical transmission network. It can manage SDH, DWDM and
Metro optical transmission equipment. See also LCT.
Tandem In the SDH transport hierarchy, the TCM is located between the
Connection AU/TU management layer and HP/LP layer. It uses the N1/N2 byte of

Trail A network level management function of the network management
management system. Through trail management, you can configure end-to-end
function services, view graphic interface and visual routes of a trail, query
detailed information of a trail, filter, search and locate a trail quickly,
manage and maintain trails in a centralized manner, manage alarms
and performance data by trail, and print a trail report.
Transceiver A transmitter and receiver housed together in a single unit and having
some circuits in common, often for portable or mobile use.

Tray A component that can be installed in the cabinet for holding chassis or
other devices.
Tributary A fault can be located for each service path by performing loopback
loopback to each path of the tributary board. There are three kinds of loopback
modes. 1. No loopback: It is the normal status. No loopback is needed
when the equipment runs efficiently; 2. Outloop: When arriving at the
line board after passing the input port in the local NE, the input signal
is directly looped back to the service output end; 3. Inloop: The input
signal is returned along the original trail from the tributary board of
the target NE.
Tributary Tributary protection switching, a function provided by the equipment,
Protection Switch is intended to protect N tributary processing boards through a standby
tributary processing board.
Tributary unit An information structure which provides adaptation between the
lower order path layer and the higher order path layer. It consists of
an information payload (the lower order VC) and a TU pointer which
indicates the offset of the payload frame start relative to the higher
order VC frame start.
Tributary Unit One or more Tributary Units, occupying fixed, defined positions in a
Group higher order VC-n payload is termed a Tributary Unit Group (TUG).
TUGs are defined in such a way that mixed capacity payloads made
up of different size Tributary Units can be constructed to increase
flexibility of the transport network

Unprotected Pertaining to the transmission of the services that are not protected,
the services cannot be switched to the protection channel if the
working channel is faulty or the service is interrupted, because
protection mechanism is not configured.
Unprotected sub- It refers to a sub-network without any protection mechanism. The
network purpose of such configuration is to provide the basic data of trail
protection for the subsequent trail management.
