Notes
OneControl provides a single solution for network and service management capabilities across the entire portfolio of
Ciena’s Ethernet, transport, and switching services.

With this single platform, OneControl provides a consistent look and feel for monitoring and managing faults,
performance management, service management, and provisioning across the Layer 0, Layer 1, and Layer 2 network
services. OneControl operators can use a common interface to view and respond to alarms raised by any managed NE
in the network, any of the supported or integrated Element Management Systems (EMSs), and OneControl itself.

OneControl is an evolution of ON-Center, OMEA, and ESM platform and covers Switching, Transport, and CESD
services. OneControl extends to partner products and provides a converged Optical Ethernet solution with the
management of Layer 0, Layer 1, and Layer 2 services.

OneControl supports the Network Elements (NEs) listed in the graphic.

Notes
The network map displays topology in a way that facilitates viewing, configuring, and troubleshooting NEs and
connections throughout the managed network.

The search tool allows the user to search for an NE, group, or link on the network map by name.

The network navigator area lists all groups on the network map, which includes the name of the group and the aggregate
alarm counts for all member NEs.

The network-wide alarm banner displays a summary of all alarms of each severity (critical, major, minor, and warning)
for the entire network. The display further breaks alarms into two groups: new unacknowledged alarms and outstanding
alarms (both acknowledged and unacknowledged).


Security alarms

Audit log

Copyright © 2013 - 2016 Ciena Corporation. All rights reserved. 1C_DB_MAP_Oview - 57

Notes
NE alarms are generated by NEs:

• An NE alarm is either a raise alarm or a clear alarm.


• NE alarms have severity levels of critical, major, minor, and warning.
• Once an alarm is cleared, the alarm becomes an historical alarm; a not-yet-cleared alarm is an active alarm.

Element Management System (EMS) alarms are similar to NE alarms, but they are generated by supported EMSs.

Security alarms provides the end user with current and historical security alarms.

The audit log maintains a chronological record of user-initiated operations and user-related security events, enabling an
operator to determine which user performed a given action, when, and from what IP address. The log also records the
result of the action as reported by the server in response to the client request.

a different server.

With the Manager for 6k, 5k, and CPL, the OneControl server can access:

• Discovery data for the OneControl server:


• Display nodes
• Transport-switched SONET/SDH/OTN services
• Packet services
• Alarms:
• The OneControl server can display alarms that the enrolled NE manager receives

Notes
The enrolled NEs are managed by one Manager for a 6k, 5k, and CPL server or by a pair of managers in a resilient
configuration, with the information reported to OneControl application.

To present a complete picture of the optical transport network on startup, the Manager:

• Detects and synchronizes enrolled NEs


• Detects and stitches provisioned photonic paths among NEs
• Stitches (as OTN services) the services identified to be complete end-to-end paths on broadband network cards

The supported nodes for the Manager for 6k, 5k, and CPL server include: 565/5100/5200, 6200, 6500, 6110/6130/6150,
and Common Photonic Layer (CPL).

The slide shows the NE List tab used to enroll the NEs in the Manager.

Notes
When the NE manager is reporting to OneControl and the NEs are reporting to the NE manager, then OneControl
provides a consistent look and feel for monitoring and managing fault, performance management, service management,
and provisioning across the Layer 0, Layer 1, and Layer 2 network services.

The Manager server collects the fault information from all NEs managed by its spans. The Manager displays the events
from its server and from NEs.

The fault management applications allow:

• Monitoring the health of the 6k, 5k, and CPL network


• Performing the following event management tasks for a span:
• Displaying active and cleared events
• Sorting and filtering events
• Accessing NEs to resolve problems
• Accessing other manager applications in context of the selected event
• Access other network management applications (such as OneControl L1 NSV and OneControl OSP)

Copyright © 2013 - 2016 Ciena Corporation. All rights reserved. 1C_EMS_Oview_65 - 47

Notes
The Manager for 6k, 5k, and CPL collects PMs to monitor the health of the system.

Performance monitoring refers to continuous collection, analysis, and reporting of NE Performance Measurements
(PMs) and Operational Measurements (OMs). Data analysis enables early detection of service degradations and
facilitates preventive maintenance without service interruption.

There are 15-minute, 1-day, and untimed PMs that can be collected. Collected PMs are available for viewing from the
Historical PMs tab.

PM collection must be enabled for an NE in order for the Manager for 6k, 5k, and CPL to collect and report PM statistics
for the NE. The manager administrator configures the maximum number of NEs for which the Manager for 6k, 5k, and
CPL can collect PM data. The manager administrator also configures the Manager to retain NE PM data for a period of
time ranging between 1 day and 31 days. A major factor in deciding this time interval is the availability of free disk space
on the Manager server.

Notes
OneControl’s wavelength provisioning interface can be used to specify the entire photonic service path, including
intermediate nodes traversed by the wavelength service (explicit provisioning). OneControl can also calculate the
optimum service path between selected start and end nodes (implicit provisioning).

OneControl Wavelength Service Management (WSM) supports management of the following service types:

• Line-Line
• CMD-Line
• CMD-CMD

The wavelength services can run over Non-control plane, control plane, colored, colorless, Coherent Select, or
submarine networks.

Copyright © 2013 - 2016 Ciena Corporation. All rights reserved. 1C_WSM_QueryProv_65.fm - 63

Notes
The topology provides the view of the connectivity of the network at a given layer and is built using adjacency
information at that layer. The 6500 supports various mechanisms that discover and provide information on how the
components in the network are connected at different layers (layer 0, layer 1 and layer 2).

There are two mechanisms to discover adjacencies at Layer 0:

• Line adjacencies
• Service-photonic layer interoperability (SPLI)

There are two mechanisms for auto-discovery at layer 1:

• Neighbor Discovery Protocol (NDP)


• ISIS-based auto-discovery (IIH)

There are two mechanisms for auto-discovery at layer 2:

• SynOptics Network Management Protocol (SONMP) topology discovery


• 802.1ab Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) topology discovery.

Refer to the Planning Guide part 1 (NTRN10DJ) and do a search on “Autodiscovery” for more information.

Colored Network
Colored Network

Copyright © 2013 - 2016 Ciena Corporation. All rights reserved. 1C_WSM_QueryProv_65.fm - 69

Notes
In a colored network, a wide variety of client signals are transported over SONET/SDH or OTN protocols. The OTN
technology is used to transport higher rates (10, 40, 100G and 200G), which can also increase the capacity on a
network and adapt a foreign wavelength to a DWDM network. Similar to SONET and SDH protocols, the client signal is
added to the overhead framing that allows the 6500 to manage the signal as the signal travels from the originating site to
the destination site.

In this example, the 6500 OTN interfaces use the same concept. The OTN interface has a wrapper feature that is added
to the client signal and then sent on the line side of the OTN interface. This wrapping feature complies with the
International Telecommunications Union - Telecommunications (ITU-T) G.709 OTN standard and allows different types
of rates to be transparently mapped.

These signals are mapped into a series of mux/demux and optical switch components at a specific wavelength.

Amplifiers are required to transport these signals over a long distance. One of the mechanisms used to transport several
wavelengths over an amplified link is the Domain Optical Controller (DOC). DOC algorithms perform automatic per-
channel power control and optimization. If the DOC is not used, per-channel power is equalized manually using
attenuator pads.

In the graphic, an example of a 100G MUX and an 100G OCLD is used. Each wavelength reaching the CMD are
different. To see the list of all circuit packs supported with WSM refer to the product documentation.
Lesson 3: Wavelength Service Management

Colorless Network
Colorless Network

Copyright © 2013 - 2016 Ciena Corporation. All rights reserved. 1C_WSM_QueryProv_65.fm - 71

Notes
In colorless network, Colorless (wavelength selective) Optical Add-Drop Multiplexer (OADM) applications consist of
configurations that can be appended to Domain Optical Controller (DOC)-controlled 6500 DIA hardware setup in a
backbone ROADM node.

The COADM Optical Transport Section (OTS) uses the following hardware:

• 12-Channel Colorless Mux/Demux (CCMD12 C-Band) Circuit Pack


• Selective Mux/Demux (SMD) 50 GHz C-Band 8x1 Circuit Pack
• 40G and 100G OCLD
The CCMD12 functions as a power combiner/splitter with an embedded Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifier (EDFA) in the
ingress and egress direction. The CCMD12 circuit pack provides up to 12 channel mux/demux ports without a filter
function. The demux-filter function normally provided in the egress direction is now transferred to the C-Band tunable
wavelength-selective interface, who has the ability to select one of up to 12 different wavelengths incident on the
balanced-PIN receiver.

The SMD provides two independently controlled Wavelength Selective Switches (WSS) which can select each of the 88
channels in the 6500 50 GHz C-band plan from any of its 8 ports that are connected to individual CCMD12 modules. The
SMD can therefore provide blocking of channels on unselected ports of either the mux or demux path, or per-channel
power adjustment (attenuation) of all DOC-managed channels in either the mux or demux path whose pixels are
unblocked.

The deployment of the COADM is advantageous in scenarios where, due to wavelength contention in a network, an
operator decides to remove an existing wavelength and reuse another wavelength. The benefit is that the change can all
be done remotely. With fibering already setup in advance between colorless OCLD interfaces and their associated
CCMD12 ports, an operator no longer needs to re-visit a site to reconnect a colorless OCLD Tx/Rx interface to a new
mux/demux coupler port. Along with the partner DIA OTS, the COADM OTS allows the operator to direct the new
wavelength towards any backbone direction.

Colorless, Directionless, Contentionless Network


Colorless, Directionless, Contentionless Network

Copyright © 2013 - 2016 Ciena Corporation. All rights reserved. 1C_WSM_QueryProv_65.fm - 73

Notes
In a colorless network, it is not possible to reuse the same wavelength on a CCMD12. To reuse the same wavelength,
another CCMD12, WSS, and amplifier are required to transport the wavelength on a different degree.

The Colorless, Directionless, Contentionless solution (middle node) provides a cost-effective way to reuse the same
wavelength. The introduction of the 16 channels colorless mux/demux with an internal multi-cast switch and EDFA array
provides the ability to reuse same wavelengths on the module. An internal selector switch maps each wavelength to a
specific degree.

A Colorless, Directionless, Contentionless (CDC) configuration provides the ability to:

• Remotely route wavelengths across any viable path in the network, that is, any wavelength can be connected to
any CCMD8x16 port (colorless).
• Receive any wavelength on any port, that is, any channel can be switched to any degree/direction (directionless).
• Add/drop the same wavelength on the same CCMD8x16, providing increased flexibility in which wavelengths can
be used (contentionless).
Lesson 3: Wavelength Service Management

Coherent Select Network


Coherent Select Network

Copyright © 2013 - 2016 Ciena Corporation. All rights reserved. 1C_WSM_QueryProv_65.fm - 75

Notes
The WaveLogic 3 technology provides better performance and Lambda filtering on the receiver. Due to this functionality,
it is now possible to replace the Wavelength Selective Switch (WSS) and optical filter with the WaveLogic Coherent
Optic ability.

The WaveLogic Coherent optic is linked to the Optical Broadband Mux/Demux (OBMD). The OBMD is connected to the
Optical Bridge and Broadcast (OBB). The two available OBB variants are the Directionless and Directional variants.

With the filtering capability, the provisioned wavelength is broadcasted over the Coherent Select network and a
wavelength service is created between the two sites using this wavelength. Obviously, the provisioned wavelength
cannot be used again on the same span.

WSM supports:

• Provisioning, Visualization and Troubleshooting of CS services


• CS service as a L0 Permanent-Sub-Network Connection (PSNC) service
• Line-to-line CS service provisioning, but depends on Service and photonic layer interoperability (SPLI) function at
a 6500 node to set the line side information properly
• CMD-CMD and Line-Line
• Deletion, activation and deactivation also supported
• Display alarms and power values related to a CS service

Control Plane Network


Control Plane Network

Copyright © 2013 - 2016 Ciena Corporation. All rights reserved. 1C_WSM_QueryProv_65.fm - 87

Notes
Control Plane network

Control Plane is a software that enables the users to provision end-to-end connections using a list of possible paths.
These connections are auto-protected as long as other Layer 0 paths exist in the network between the original end
points.

Control Plane provides autonomous network control by automating multiple manual functions such as topology
discovery, end to end circuit activation and restoration.

The four broad applications areas that benefit from Control Plane are:

• Automated Self-Inventory
• Automated Service Provisioning
• Efficient Operations and
• Self-Healing Network
Lesson 3: Wavelength Service Management

Control Plane Network


The Control Plane architecture is made up of
several building blocks:

OSRP Instance

OSRP Line

OSRP Link

Routes / Route List

Sub-Network Connection (SNC)

Copyright © 2013 - 2016 Ciena Corporation. All rights reserved. 1C_WSM_QueryProv_65.fm - 89

Notes
There are several building blocks that make up the Control Plane architecture:
• Optical Signaling and Routing Protocol (OSRP) instance;
created on each node within the network to provision the nodes for Control Plane mode.
• OSRP line;
created between the OSRP instance to provide In-Band or Out-Of-Band (OOB) communication channel.
• OSRP link;
logical entities used in the OSRP routing mechanism for advertising. In the Control Plane Layer 0 only one OSRP
line can be aggregated in a OSRP link.
• Routes;
referred as Designated Transit Lists (DTLs) and Routing Lists (DTL Sets). The route defines the possible paths
between two end points and the routing list grouped multiple routes (up to 19) together (optional provisioning).
• Sub-Network Connection (SNC);
SNC is the photonic channel connection across the optical domain. SNCs can be permanent (unprotected),
protected or mesh-restorable.

Use OneControl to provision photonic (Layer 0) control plane subnetwork connections (SNCs) in a photonic control
plane-enabled network. Ciena’s Optical Signalling and Routing Protocol (OSRP) ensures photonic path availability for
restoration and protection.

Notes
In the event of a failure on a non-Control Plane network, OneControl should be used to manually restore wavelength
services from failed links (Home path) to alternate paths (Restore path) and later to revert the wavelength service back
to the original home path.

Wavelength service restoration includes the following key features:

• Manual restoration of one, some, or all non-control plane services on a link


• View restore (target) paths proposed by WSM and modify these paths prior to restoration
• A home path data, stored for restoration purposes, that is included in the OneControl server backups and is shared
among resilient OneControl servers configured in a redundant pair
• Support for CPL and 6500 Direction Independent Access (DIA)
• Support for services that span regens
• Service restoration that can be performed for a failed link or for traffic grooming
• Specification of photonic link exclusions
Lesson 3: Wavelength Service Management

Restoration

Copyright © 2013 - 2016 Ciena Corporation. All rights reserved. 1C_WSM_QueryProv_65.fm - 97

Notes
The service restoration is applicable on a Direction Independent Access (DIA) site. During wavelength service
restoration/reversion, OneControl performs the following tasks. Each task is a prerequisite for successful completion of
the next task.

To perform wavelength service restoration/reversion:

1. Retrieve all services on the selected photonic link


2. For each wavelength on the link, perform the following steps:
• Calculate the optimum target path
• Request DOC to unmanage the channels on the current traffic link
• Delete the current path cross connects at DIA and inter-domain nodes
• If a Next Generation Modulation (NGM) card is linked to a CMD, initiate a reset of the dispersion scan
• Provision the new path cross connects at DIA and inter-domain nodes
• Request DOC to manage the channels on the new photonic links

Network and Service Viewer


Network and Service Viewer

Copyright © 2013 - 2016 Ciena Corporation. All rights reserved. 1C_NSV_Oview - 171

Notes
The NSV provides a highly flexible visualization and navigation capability to assist in the fault management of complex
networks. The NSV is an optional application that simplifies troubleshooting at the subsystem, DWDM, and service
levels. The NSV enables a user to browse configurations and Layer 1 services in which an NE participates and
graphically displays them.

The Configurations view provides subsystem level visualization, and the Layer 1 services allow retrieval of the services
being carried by the NEs.

Alarm summaries, NE states, and the traffic link status information can be overlaid on the graphical display; an
applications subset of the components can also be launched.

The NSV provides a single point of access for troubleshooting and browsing optical entities / functional components and
end-to-end connections within a network.

The NSV is designed to serve networks of various sizes for either existing or new deployments. The NSV can be
installed in the following configurations:

• NSV deployment for OneControl NE types


• NSV deployment for all NE types
Lesson 6: Layer 1 Network and Service Viewer (NSV)

Network and Service Viewer

Copyright © 2013 - 2016 Ciena Corporation. All rights reserved. 1C_NSV_Oview - 173

Notes
The NSV supports the display of all NE alarms in the Configurations view, which allows NSV user-defined configurations
to be used as a “first alert” network map for networks or subnetworks up to 100 nodes in size.

The Network view (All Alarms) preference setting is used to select how alarms are displayed in the Configurations view:

• When the Network view (All Alarms) option is enabled, all alarms at a selected NE in a configuration are included
in the Details area tabs and indicated in the display area. As well, the Alarm Details table includes an NE Name
column, which displays the NE Target Identifier (TID) for the NE on which the alarm is raised.
• When the Network view (All Alarms) option is disabled, only the alarms associated with the facilities on the NE that
participate in the selected configuration are included in the Details area tabs and indicated in the display area.

Key features:

• Allows the retrieval and sorting of configurations and Layer 1 services associated with a specific NE
• Provides a graphical presentation of configurations and Layer 1 services associated with a selected context, with
overlays of alarm summaries and NE states
• Provides link status details for 2-fiber and 4-fiber BLSRs/MS-SPRings and some 1+1 linear / 1+1 MSP
configurations, including protection information, traffic activity, and health of traffic links
• Provides a mechanism to retrieve and receive notifications for updates in alarm summaries, link status, and NE
states
• Allows the customizing and saving of the layout of NEs for configurations
• Provides autodiscovery of topology for supported configurations
• Provides custom topology support to add topological links that cannot be autodiscovered and the ability for the
user to create his/her own set of configurations for troubleshooting in context

Notes
The NDS server’s ability to provide certain functionality depends on its knowledge of how NEs in the network are
physically connected to each other. This is referred to as topology.

Topology can be broken down into three categories:

• Configurations defined by the user (stored on a controller, network processor, or NE):


• This category includes BLSR/MS-SPRing, 10G linear, 2.5G linear, all wavelengths from a CPL, 6500 photonics,
and supported subtending NEs.
• In general, this type of topology can be successfully consolidated by the NSV (subject to certain requirements
and limitations).
• Adjacency information:
• This category includes all other physical connectivity among the NEs not defined by the user (that is, all other
linear connectivity).
• The NSV’s ability to consolidate adjacency information depends on functionality available at the NE level and at
the controller level. Therefore, this type of topology is only consolidated by the NSV for certain NE types.
• Custom topology:
• This category includes physical connectivity data that can be manually entered and maintained by an
administrator.
• Custom topology can be used to manually define topology that cannot be autodiscovered by the NDS server.

Configurations View
Configurations View

Copyright © 2013 - 2016 Ciena Corporation. All rights reserved. 1C_NSV_Oview - 181

Notes
A configuration refers to a group of connected NEs, usually provisioned with a protection scheme.

The three available types of configuration data in the Configurations view are:

• Protection-based configurations, such as 2F or 4F BLSRs/MS-SPRings (this configuration type is network


discovered).
• OSID-based configurations that mainly contain photonic NEs. This configuration type is also network discovered.
• User-defined configurations that contain network-discovered topology and/or custom topology. This configuration
type is manually grouped by the user(s).

The Configurations view provides link status information on supported configurations. The link status indicates if a
protection switch has occurred and whether or not traffic has switched. In addition to this switching indication, protection
icons displayed on the links indicate the status of the protection.

The NSV supports the display of custom topologies created with the Custom Topology tool, which can be used to create
groupings of NEs and links called User-Defined Configurations (UDCs). These UDCs can then be viewed in the
Configurations view and used to troubleshoot in the desired context.
Lesson 6: Layer 1 Network and Service Viewer (NSV)

Configuration Tab
Configuration Tab

Copyright © 2013 - 2016 Ciena Corporation. All rights reserved. 1C_NSV_Oview - 183

Notes
When the NSV window opens, the Configurations tab is selected. Each configuration in which the NE participates is
listed as a record in the Results table. Each record lists the ID, Alarms, Type, and Status columns.

UDCs are used to logically group nodes and links into a viewable entity. A UDC has the following properties:

• A UDC consists of a user-defined set of topological links that are either auto-discovered from the network or
created using the Custom Topology tool.
• A UDC is identified by a user-defined name. The UDC name is restricted to 255 characters. (The Custom
Topology tool supports up to 255 characters for the UDC name.)
• A UDC has a user-defined type, which can be either a free-form or pre-defined type (for example, UPSR/SNCP).
The UDC type is restricted to 255 characters. (The Custom Topology tool supports up to 255 characters for the
UDC type).
• A UDC can contain either portions of or entire defined configurations. These defined configurations can be other
UDCs or network-discovered configurations (for example, BLSR/MS-SPRing). As such, a topological link can be a
part of more than one configuration.

Note: Links in a UDC do not report traffic link status, which is applicable to both network-learned configurations and
user-defined links within a UDC.

UDC creation and visualization: To create a UDC, the user must use the Custom Topology command line tool
(topology_provisioner) to create the configuration, which is then stored in the Custom Topology component of the NDS.
For information on using the Custom Topology tool, reference should be made to the One Control OSP and NSV
Custom Topology User Guide, 450-3261-089.

Layer 1 Services
Layer 1 Services

Copyright © 2013 - 2016 Ciena Corporation. All rights reserved. 1C_NSV_Oview - 185

Notes
To provide service visualization and troubleshooting, the NSV supports a Layer 1 services view that allows:

• Retrieval of the services being carried by an NE (with the alarm status of each of the services)
• Ability to show the sequential list of connections that form the service

A service path refers to the traffic that flows from the head end (NE A) to the tail end (NE Z). The Layer 1 Services view
provides visualization of the explored path for a selected nodal connection.

Specifically, the Layer 1 Services view lists all nodal connections for an NE. When a nodal connection is selected from
the displayed list of connections, the entire path that includes the connection is visualized.

The Layer 1 Services view in the NSV:

• Lists all the cross connects on an NE and all the NEs in any retrieved service path
• Provides a graphical representation of a service, the NEs in the service, and the links carrying traffic among the
NEs
• Provides both logical and physical views of the links in a service path
• Provides alarm data for all NE port facilities in the service path
