When working on a shelf at the top of an equipment rack, a dropped object that
falls into a lower shelf can cause physical damage and electrical short circuits.
To prevent this, place a piece of paper or other cover over the lower shelf to
catch fallen objects. Remove the paper or other cover when work is complete.
DANGER Possibility of personal injury. Install the Alcatel-Lucent 9500 MPR-A in a
restricted-access area only. Entrance to a restricted-access area is intended
for qualified or trained personnel and access to it is controlled by a locked
barrier.
DANGER Possibility of personal injury. The MSS-1/4/8 shelf does not contain main
overcurrent protection devices. The user must provide circuit breakers or
fuses and disconnects between the power source and the Alcatel-Lucent
9500 MPR-A. Each power feed from a source (-48 V dc and Return) requires
a dc-rated fast-trip circuit breaker or fuse and disconnect. Circuit breakers or
fuses must meet applicable local and national electrical safety codes and be
approved for the intended application. Circuit breaker or fuse size is
dependent upon site configuration. Refer to site engineering documentation
for the correct Circuit breaker or fuse size.
DANGER Possibility of personal injury. The MPT-HL shelf does not contain main
overcurrent protection devices. The user must provide circuit breakers or

60825-1 (par. 5).
2.46 The laser source is placed in the optional SFP plug-in, which is
installed in the Core-E card and P8ETH card. The laser source is placed in the
left side of the SFP plug-in.
2.47 Verify that laser labels on equipment state that the system conforms
to all applicable standards of 21 CFR 1040.10. If there are no danger labels, call
the Alcatel-Lucent Technical Support Center (TSC).
2.48 The invisible infrared radiation emitted by the fiber-optic transmitter
can cause eye damage. Observe local office procedures and the following
dangers:
DANGER Possibility of personal injury. The use of controls and/or adjustments, or the
performance of procedures other than those specified herein may result in
hazardous infrared radiation exposure.
CLASS 1 LASER PRODUCT
3EM23955AL
Issue 01, November 2012
Introduction 1-18
DANGER Possibility of personal injury. Laser infrared radiation is not in the visible
spectrum; therefore, it is not visible to the naked eye or with laser safety
glasses. Although it cannot be seen, laser radiation may be present.
DANGER Possibility of personal injury. Never look directly into an unterminated
fiber-optic connector unless it is absolutely known that no optical power is
being emitted by the connector.
DANGER Possibility of personal injury. Never look into a broken optical fiber cable
unless it is absolutely known that no laser radiation is present.
DANGER Possibility of personal injury. Never look at an optical fiber splice, cable, or
connector unless it is absolutely known that no laser radiation is present in
the fiber. Laser radiation can come from a fiber-optic transmitter, an Optical
Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR), or other optical test equipment.
DANGER Possibility of personal injury. Never look directly into an unterminated
optical connector or cable with a magnifier/microscope unless it is
absolutely known that no laser radiation is being emitted from the connector
or cable. A magnifier or microscope greatly increases the laser radiation
hazard to the eyes.
DANGER Possibility of personal injury. This system normally operates as a Class I
Laser Product (no hazard). However, during servicing operations, when
optical connectors are being connected, disconnected, or handled without
dust covers, it is possible to be exposed to Class IIIb laser radiation, which
can cause eye damage.
DANGER Possibility of personal injury. Everyone within a 10-foot radius of an
unterminated optical fiber or connector that is connected to a powered
transmitter must wear laser safety goggles or eye shields.
2.49 Laser safety goggles or eye shields are not required if the following
work rules are strictly followed:
1. Always remove electrical power from fiber-optic transmitters before
disconnecting fiber-optic connectors in the path between the
transmitter and the receiver.
2. Never connect an unterminated optical cable to a fiber-optic
transmitter. Always connect fiber-optic cables to fiber-optic receivers,
test sets, or some other termination first.

3. Electrostatic-sensitive devices
Electrostatic-sensitivity
3.1 An Electrostatic-Sensitive Device (ESD) can withstand voltage spikes
of only 10 to 100 volts and can be damaged or effectively destroyed by a
discharge that might go unnoticed by a technician. Some devices have built-in
protection. However, because this protection is effective only against the lower
levels of electrostatic charges, a false sense of security often prevails.
WARNING Possibility of equipment damage. Common plastic, white foam,
cellophane, and masking adhesive tapes must not come in contact with
ESDs or their packaging.
3.2 Common plastics (synthetic insulating materials), clothing, and paper
or cardboard are the most common sources of static charges.
3.3 Observe special precautions when the ESD sign is displayed. See
figure 3-1.
3.4 The following items are examples of ESDs:
" MOS (Metal Oxide Semiconductor) capacitors, transistors, Integrated
Circuits (ICs)
" CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) transistors, ICs
" JFET (Junction Field Effect Transistors)
" IGFET (Insulated Gate Field Effect Transistors)

Handling cards
3.5 Although the risk of damage to an ESD is reduced considerably after
it is assembled into a circuit designed to protect sensitive components, take the
following precautions to reduce static charges to harmless levels:
" Handle all cards as ESDs unless they are known not to contain
electrostatic-sensitive parts.
" Wear wrist ground strap, connected to grounded coiled cord before and
while touching or handling cards containing ESS devices. See
figure 3-2 for an illustration of the wrist strap with cord. The wrist
strap (PN 1AD 01247 0001) is an elasticized band connected to the
coiled cord connected to the rack frame ground.
" Store (even temporarily), pack, and ship cards in antistatic bags or
containers.
" Do not handle printed circuit board or components unnecessarily. Use
plastic handle.
" Do not use synthetic bristled brushes or acid brushes to clean cards.
" Handle failed cards with same precautions as good cards.
3.6 ESD components are protected when properly packaged in conductive
or antistatic packaging. Acceptable packaging is marked as either conductive
or antistatic.

Tributary functionality test
Purpose
This procedure is used to verify tributary continuity on all wired and fibered DS1s, DS3s, OC-3s,
and/or Ethernet tributary quality from the DSX/fiber demarcation panel to the 9500 MPR-A.
General
For all wired DS1s, DS3s, and fibered OC-3s tributaries verifies continuity from the DSX/fiber
demarcation panel to the 9500 MPR-A by using an AIS signal.
An optional test for all wired DS1s and DS3s is to use a TDM BER test set connected to the
demarcation panel and activate a line facing PDH loopback and verify error-free operation between
the DS1/DS3 port to/from the local demarcation panel.
For all Ethernet ports, MSS-4/MSS-8 shelf Core-E and P8ETH cards and MSS-1 MSS/CORE, an end
to end test is performed on all Ethernet ports.
Continuity test using AIS
Perform a continuity test on ALL wired/fibered DS1s, DS3s, OC-3s, and/or Ethernet tributaries.
Each port will be individually provisioned. The port alarm will be registered and cleared using a
looping plug at the A-side DSX-1 panel or DSX-3 panel or fiber panel.
A copy of the alarm log will be captured during the testing period. A sample of this test is listed
below:
Refer to the 9500 MPR-A Operation and Administration manual (PN 3EM23954AL) for detailed
instructions on provisioning cross connections.
Refer to the 9500 MPR-A Product Information manual (PN 3EM23952AL) for detailed information

Radio interference and fade margin test - ODU300/MPT ODU
Purpose
This procedure is used to verify radio interference and fade margin for systems configured with
MOD300 cards/ODU300s, MPT-HC/MPT-XP/9558HC (MPT ODU).
General
Due to the nature of the Split Architecture of the 9500 MPR-A radio design, the remote fade margin
test is typically performed by provisioning the far end Tx to minimum power and observing both the
local RSL and BER. In many cases, the Tx power control is not enough to bring the Rx to threshold.
In these cases where the Thermal Fade Margin exceeds the TX power control range, reducing the far
end TX power to minimum and confirming error-free operation should still provide an acceptable
level of confidence. It can HELP to identify if a path is suffering from external interference. For
further details, refer to the 9500 MPR-A Operation and Administration manual (PN 3EM23954AL).
Expected fade margin is unique to each radio path design and the receive threshold associated with
the modem profile for the radio channel. Refer to the 9500 MPR-A Engineering Support
Documentation manual (PN 3EM23957AL), System Application Rules (PN 3EM 22784 0000
BGZZA) for receiver thresholds associated with modem profiles. Consult site engineering
documentation for expected value for fade margin.
Lower than expected fade margin results
If the measured fade margin is significantly less than the expected margin, reasons can include:
" Accuracy of measurement not taken into account. For 9500 MPR-A, the margin
for error can be up to 3 to 4 dBm, given the limitations of software-set power
control, RSL measurement and error capture method.
" The margin for error for a receive threshold check can also be up to 4 dB given the
limitations of internal RSL and BER alarm measurement. Measurement accuracy
can be improved with the use of an external BER tester.
" Equipment performance outside specification
" Path loss higher than expected
" Antenna misalignment
" Interference from other transmitters
Refer to the 9500 MPR-A Operation and Administration manual (PN 3EM23954AL) for detailed
instructions Craft Terminal operations.

Radio interference and fade margin test - MPT-HL
Purpose
This procedure is used to verify radio interference and fade margin for systems configured with
MSS-4/8 shelf P8ETH card and MPT-HL Transceivers.
General
Radio interference and fade margin tests receiver sensitivity and identifies possible radio
interferences with the radio channel under test.
Attenuation
The test requires attenuating the transmit signal at the far end transmitter. If using fixed
attenuators, use the following formula to calculate the required attenuation value:
Fixed attenuation = 12 + r - mRSL
where:
r= Rx 10
-6
Threshold specification for the channel under test
mRSL= measured receiver RSL
Example: Channel under test characteristics: upper 6 GHz, 30 MHz bandwidth, 256 QAM
modulation, 1+0 configuration (-66.0 dBm Rx 10
-6
threshold). The measure RSL is -45 dBm.
Minimum Fixed attenuation equals: 12 + -66.0 dBm - -45 dBm, which equals a minimum of 9 dB of
fixed attenuation. Thus the tester could use either one 10 db fixed attenuator, or one 6 dB and one 3
dB fixed attenuator.
Lower than expected fade margin results
If the measured fade margin is significantly less than the expected margin, reasons can include:
" Equipment performance outside specification
" Path loss higher than expected
" Antenna misalignment
" Interference from other transmitters
