Overview
Metropolitan networks differ from long-haul systems in that they typically contain
nodes of significantly different sizes and degrees and often face unpredictable traffic
growth.
The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 is designed as a highly modular metro wavelength
division multiplexing (WDM) platform to cost-effectively meet the requirements of
initial network demands while simultaneously ready for upgrade to meet future
demands. At the same time, it employs advanced Zero Touch Photonics management
and control features, simplifying WDM system management so that it approaches the
ease-of-use usually associated only with SDH/SONET technology.

DWDM filter architectures


Overview

The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 R1.0 supports up to 44 DWDM wavelength channels


in the C-band from the standardized optical grid specified by the ITU-T G.692
recommendation. Channel spacing is 100 GHz.
A future release of Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 will support 88 channels on a 50-GHz
grid.

Transmission is over a fiber pair, i.e., one direction of transmission in each fiber.
The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 supports a wide range of DWDM filter architectures
that allow the operator to optimize for lowest first equipment cost (capex) or lowest
operating cost (opex). In fact, nodes with different types of filters can be mixed in the
same network to allow even more granular optimization, if desired.
The different filter architectures are characterized by the optical technologies employed
in the multiplexing/demultiplexing and, in some cases, switching of optical channel
wavelengths.
The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 supports multi-degree nodes up to 4 degrees, i.e.,
transparent transponderless interconnection of wavelengths between four line systems.
Multiple 4-degree instantiations (i.e., disjoint optical domains) can be supported in a
single NE.
A future release of Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 will support 8 degrees.
FOADM

Fixed OADM (FOADM) optimizes for lowest first cost by using static optical filters
for multiplexing/demultiplexing. Further optimization is obtained by offering two
FOADM filter choices: a full-band 44-channel architecture and a scalable 5-channel
filter architecture.
Static filters require that optical transponders need to be fibered to the correct
wavelength ports on the filter faceplates, and any reconfigurability requires manual
re-arrangement of the fibers.
44-channel static filter (SFD44)

Each SFD44 filter card has a 44-channel optical multiplexer and 44-channel
demultiplexer. An SFD44 gives local access to all 44 channels from day 1. This gives
the greatest flexibility and simplifies planning, but at a slightly higher first cost than a
single 5-channel filter. Each of the 44 channels can be locally add-dropped,
transparently passed through, or regenerated if necessary. No expansion port is required
as all channels are available.
Refer to Figure 2-1, FOADM 44-channel static filter architecture (2-degree) (p. 2-4).

DWDM filter architectures

Figure 2-2 FOADM 5-channel static-filter architecture (2-degree)

Expansion ports are used to cascade up to 3 filters in any combination, allowing for a
total of maximum 15 individually demultiplexed/multiplexed channels. Each of these
15 locally accessible channels can be either locally add-dropped, transparently passed
through, or regenerated if necessary. All other channels are band-passed through.
For lowest start-up cost, a node would start with a single SFD5x filter (with x being
any of the 8 variants). As more local add/drop channels are required, a second or third
SFD5 can be cascaded. Alternatively, a 44-channel SFD44 filter can be cascaded to the
expansion port of the SFD5 start-up filter to gain access to all 44 channels if necessary.
This upgrade path merges the lowest start-up cost with the capability to later expand to
maximum capacity.
ROADM

A reconfigurable OADM (ROADM) uses the 8-channel wavelength router (CWR8),


with a static filter (or cascade of static filters) connected to its expansion port.
Refer to Figure 2-3, ROADM filter architecture (2-degree) (p. 2-6).

Figure 2-3 ROADM filter architecture (2-degree)

The static filter(s) are used only for local add-drop or regeneration (if required). Like
the FOADM, transponders must be connected to the correct wavelength port on the
filters. However, unlike FOADMs, the through channels can be reconfigured to
add-drop (and vice versa) by the wavelength router remotely via software. Software
also automatically prevents channel collisions that might result from mis-fibered
transponders.
TOADM

The tunable ROADM (TOADM) is a refinement to the ROADM that yields the
ultimate in operational flexibility, especially when used in conjunction with
transponders with tunable wavelength lasers (all Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 R1.0
transponders support tunable lasers).
Refer to Figure 2-4, TOADM filter architecture (2-degree) (p. 2-7).

Figure 2-4 TOADM filter architecture (2-degree)

In a 2-degree TOADM, transponders can be connected to any of the 8 colorless ports


on the same CWR8 regardless of transmission wavelengthsimplifying wavelength
adds. During reconfiguration, tunable transponders can tune to a new wavelength
without the need for any manual re-fibering. This combination of wavelength
switching, colorless add/drop, and tunable transponders yields a fully remotely
reconfigurable optical node, of which the ROADM was only a first step.
Additionally, the start-up cost of the TOADM is less than the ROADM because no
static filters are required; colorless add-drop ports are inherently part of the
Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 CWR8 wavelength router architecture.
For R1.0, it is only for large nodes with the addition of the 9th add-drop wavelength
that static (colored) filters need be added. In this case, up to 44 channels can be locally
add-dropped, although only the first 8 channels will support colorless add-drop.
Refer to Figure 2-5, TOADM filter architecture w/growth beyond 8 add-drop
channels (p. 2-8)

Colorless ports are also used for interconnection of additional CWR8 packs for higher
degree TOADM nodes. Therefore, for a 3-degree TOADM, there is one less colorless
port for transponders: seven; for 4-degree TOADM, six.
In future releases of Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32, CWR8 wavelength routers can be
optionally cascaded for up to a 44-colorless-channel TOADM.
Also in a future release, a CWR8 cascade will be able to effect a directionless
TOADM. In the standard TOADM of Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 R1.0, each CWR8
is associated with a particular WDM line (degree), and a transponder connected to that
CWR8 is also associated with that line. In a directionless TOADM, a transponder can
be switched to different optical lines without any re-fibering.

Optical amplification and dispersion compensation

Chromatic dispersion compensation

For long all-optical routes, the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 uses dispersion
compensating modules (DCMs) to compensate for chromatic dispersion on the line
fiber. The granularity of the DCM lengths ensures that proper compensation can be
achieved flexibly. DCMs for standard single-mode (ITU-T G.652) fiber routes are
available for compensating 10, 20, 30, 50, 50, 60, 70, and 80 km.
DCMs are installed at the mid-stage of optical amplifiers and compensate for the line
associated with the amplifier.
In future releases, DCMs to support longer distances of SMF and to support NZ-DSF
(ITU-T G.655) fiber will be available.
In-line amplifier (ILA) node

In some physically larger networks, the distance between two add/drop nodes may
exceed the systems single span optical reach. In such a case, an ILA can be installed
at a mid-point, thereby creating two shorter spans and boosting the signal strength
before it gets too close to the noise floor.
Like an Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 add/drop node, an ILA node is an individually
managed network element, but without channel add/drop capabilities. It uses a subset
of the same hardware to provide bidirectional line amplification and dispersion
compensation only.
In very long distance applications, multiple ILAs can be installed at multiple points
along the line.

Optical transponders
Overview

The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 includes a small family of highly flexible


transponders that cover a wide range of client signals and support high levels of
multiplexing to achieve maximum optical efficiency.
These transponders share many common features.

Line-side ITU-T G.709 OTU2 standards-compliant digital wrapper (10.709 Gb/s).


Supports transparent transport, optical channel level performance monitoring and
fault management, and standardized FEC for increased optical reach. (In some
special cases, described below, extended OTU2 at approximately 11 Gb/s is
supported).

Industry-leading FEC option, providing 8.5-dB OSNR coding gain, higher than
provided by the standard, is available on all transponders.

Tunable line wavelength. Each transponder is able to tune to any of the 44


wavelengths (in a future release, 88 wavelengths) that Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32
supports. This drastically improves operations and inventory.

On-board variable optical attenuator to control optical line transmit power and
allow automatic channel power balancing.

Wavelength Tracker encoder. Adds a unique WaveKey to the line transmit


wavelength for network-wide monitoring.
Optical 1+1 protection for services requiring high availability.

Pluggable client optics. All client ports use SFPs or XFPs for maximum flexibility
of service and reach, and for lowest cost.

Facility and terminal loopbacks, provisionable error handling, client side digital
performance monitoring.

Performance monitoring available on all optical ports.

LC connectors are used on all optical connections in the Alcatel-Lucent 1830


PSS-32, for low cost and high density.

A future Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 release will introduce an additional variant of


each of the R1.0 transponders with the single tunable line interface replaced with two
pluggable XFP line interfaces. Although on-the-fly wavelength tunability is
sacrificed, lower first costs can be achieved, and integrated single-transponder
protection is supported.
A future Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 release will also provide transponders with
2.5/4G and 40G line interfaces. The former will be optimized for nodes with very
small amounts of add/drop traffic; the latter will be optimized for nodes with very
large amounts of add/drop traffic and/or 40G services.
11G Single Port Tunable AnyRate Transponder (11STAR1)

The 11STAR1 transponder accepts one of several types of 10G client signals via XFP
optics and wraps them into the 11G DWDM line signal.

signals can be mixed on any combination of client ports, as long as the aggregate
client bandwidth does not exceed the payload of the G.709 line signal.
As an example, when uniform clients are offered, the maximum capacity of the

The future dual-line version of this card will support ADM-on-a-blade functionality,
whereby individual clients may be add-dropped at a node.
11G Single Port Tunable GbE Muxing Transponder (11STGE12)

The 11STGE12 transponder accepts up to ten Gigabit Ethernet client signals via SFP
optics and performs non-blocking multiplexing into the 11G DWDM line signal (there
are 12 physical client SFP cages, but in R1.0 only ten are usable. In a future software
release, all 12 will be usable with statistical multiplexing).
Although the 11STMM10 card also multiplexes Gigabit Ethernet signals into an 11G
line signal, the 11STGE12 card is cost-optimized specifically for Gigabit Ethernet, and
allows for muxing of up to 10 (vs. 9) non-blocking signals. Instead of muxing
GFP-framed Gigabit Ethernets, the 11STGE12 uses an Ethernet switch. The switch
terminates the Ethernet physical layer and so is not fully transparent (the switch drops,
pauses, and terminates auto-negotiation but is otherwise transparent). On the other
hand, the 11STMM10 card has the option of GFP-T mapping for transparent Gigabit
Ethernet transport.

Wavelength Tracker
Overview

Carriers need tools for managing the WDM layer that are similar in effectiveness to
those at the SDH/SONET layer. The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 has been designed
with a unique Wavelength Tracker capability, which enables every wavelength to be
traced as it passes through the WDM network.
How Wavelength Tracker works

Wavelength Tracker architecture is based on the principle of encode once, decode


many times. First, a unique optical signature known as a WaveKey is encoded into
each service wavelength at the transponders transmitter, before it enters the WDM
layer. Second, optical taps and DSP-based WaveKey decoders are present in optical
modules throughout the optical network. This circuitry reads the WaveKey and
optical power level of each wavelength, providing complete optical layer visibility for
network fiber connectivity and faults, at multiple points in each NE, regardless of
whether the wavelengths are add/dropped or simply passed through.
Refer to Figure 2-10, Wavelength Tracker coding and encoding points (p. 2-16).

Wavelength Tracker

Figure 2-10 Wavelength Tracker coding and encoding points

The key to Wavelength Trackers cost-effectiveness is that it accomplishes all this


totally within the optical domain. Therefore, no expensive O-E-O conversions or
optical spectrum analyzers are needed, reducing overall system cost.
The assignment of WaveKeys is managed by the network elements (NEs), which
maintain a database of the WaveKeys used in the network.
Applications

Wavelength Tracker includes several applications.


Wavelength path trace

The WaveKey acts as an Optical J0 Trace Identifier. Wavelength Tracker traces the
end-to-end path of each wavelength, distinguishing each from all other
wavelengthseven multiple instances of the same wavelength when wavelength re-use
is employed on a network.
Optical power management

In ROADM/TOADM systems, power management is fully automated. Target optical


power levels are calculated for critical points in the system. Actual per-channel optical
power is measured by Wavelength Tracker. Algorithms then feed back to control power
at the transponder transmitter and at the CWR8 wavelength router. (On the former, a
variable optical attenuator [VOA] is used; on the latter. the power control is built-in to
the optical switching fabric).

Wavelength Tracker

This is a process that operates continuously to keep optical levels at ideal set points
and minimize optical power divergence throughout the life of the system. The result is
zero-touch power management at node commission and when adding or removing
wavelengths, and optimization of engineering rules.
Fault isolation

Whenever one or more optical powers fall outside their target zones, the occurrence is
alarmed and provides a highly effective GUI that aids in troubleshooting. The data can
be viewed in two different dimensions. One is the optical path view, which allows the
operator to trace the power of a single wavelength from the point it enters the network
until when it leaves. The other view is the optical fiber view, which shows the power
of all wavelengths at a single point.
Refer to Figure 2-11, Wavelength Tracker fault isolation (p. 2-17).
Figure 2-11 Wavelength Tracker fault isolation

The first example shows the power trace of a wavelength through two nodes
(horizontal scrolling allows viewing of the entire wavelength path), and the point in the
first node where the power falls out of the target zone. The second example shows a
point at which all but one of the wavelengths are within their target power range.
With this data, fiber bends, dirty connectors, incorrectly fibered fibers, etc., can be
isolated to a specific node and also to particular interconnect points within that node.

Alien wavelengths
Overview

The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32, as is typical with all WDM systems, accepts black
and white (B&W) client optical signals and converts them into ITU-T grid-compliant
DWDM line signals. The line card that performs this function is the optical
transponder. Among other functions, it performs optical-to-electrical-to-optical (O-E-O)
conversion and provides a manageable demarcation between the Alcatel-Lucent 1830
PSS-32 (transport) and client switching equipment.
However, if the client equipment is capable of supporting native ITU-T grid-compliant
DWDM interfaces, it may not be necessary to use an Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32
optical transponder: the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 can accept such alien
wavelengths without any O-E-O conversion. Even in this case, there are many
advantages to using optical transponders, but sometimes there is a prevailing advantage
in the economics of alien wavelengths.
In some systems, alien wavelengths are directly launched into the DWDM filters. With
no demarcation, this practice is fraught with operational problems.
Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 offers a mediating card creating a demarcation point
between the client and DWDM system. The card establishes a monitoring point and
has a VOA to control launch power. Uniquely, the card also has a WaveKey encoder
that enables optical performance monitoring and wavelength tracing of the alien
wavelength as it traverses the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 domainproviding for
unrivalled management of alien wavelengths. In R1.0 this card is the single port
variable attenuator card (SVAC); a multi-port card will be available in a future release.

Optical protection
Overview

The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 supports optical 1+1 protection on a per-wavelength


basis over any network topology where diverse routes are available. Alcatel-Lucent
1830 PSS-32 provides a choice of 1+1 architectures that allow the network operator to
make capex vs. service availability trade-offs. In other words, the amount of line and
transmission equipment redundancy can be adjusted to restrict the number of single
points of failure commensurate with a targeted availability requirement.
The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 protection options share several common features.

Channels are protected on an individual basis

Protected and unprotected channels can be mixed in nodes and in fiber paths.

Protection switching is performed in less than 50 ms.


Lockout, forced, and manual switching are supported.

Examples include: full digital PMs on client and line side, facility and terminal
loopbacks, muxing of lower speed clients into single wavelength, wider range of
optical 1+1 protection options, better support of remote clients, guaranteed engineering
rules under all operating conditions and over the lifetime of the equipment.
Future releases of Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 will support additional protection
architectures, sharing the common features above, but each with their own advantages
and trade-offs.
Per-channel optical line protection (with OPS)

This option 1+1 protects the optical line only. However, because the optical
transponder is not duplicated, it is the lowest cost option.
Refer to Figure 2-12, Per-channel optical line protection (p. 2-19)

Optical protection

Following the left to right signal path, an unprotected client signal is converted to a
WDM line signal by a transponder. An Optical Protection Switch (OPS) pack is
inserted between the transponder and WDM filter. The OPS head-end bridges (passive
optical splitting) the line signal to a pair of diversely routed fibers. At the far end of
the network, the two line signals are received by the far-side OPS. The OPS switches
(optically) a valid line signal to the far-end transponder, which forwards the signal to
the far-end client. In the event of a line fiber cut on the working path, the far-end OPS
switches to the alternate signal. The switching criteria is based on loss of optical
power. The OPS also monitors the health of the protect path so that if there is a fiber
cut, the signal will be switched to a known good path. The reverse path operates in the
same but independent manner, i.e., the OPS supports uni-directional switching.
Only non-revertive mode is supported by the OPS in Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32
R1.0. Revertive switching is planned to be supported in a future release of
Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32.
OPS protection configurations

For protection configurations, the working and protection lines may be both auto-power
managed, both manual-power managed, or one auto-power and one manual-power
managed.
The following combinations will be supported in R1.1.

OT OPS protection: TOADM auto-auto paths with and without SFDs (see Figure

Optical protection

Optical sub-block network connection protection (O-SCNP)

This option 1+1 protects both the optical line and the transponders for higher service
availability.
Refer to Figure 2-18, Optical sub-network connection protection (O-SCNP) (p. 2-23)
Figure 2-18 Optical sub-network connection protection (O-SCNP)

Following the left to right signal path, an unprotected client signal is passively
head-end bridged by the Y-cable to a pair of redundant transponders. Each transponder
transmits a WDM line signal onto a diversely routed fiber. One signal is the primary,
and one signal is the secondary. At the far end, the primary and secondary signals are
received by another pair of redundant transponders. The transponder receiving the
primary line signal converts it to a client signal and passes it through the Y-cable to the
client equipment. The secondary transponder has its client interface turned off. In the
event of a primary line fiber cut, primary transponder failure, or primary signal
degrade, the primary transponder in the failed path will disable client signal
transmission and the secondary transponder will turn on its client signal transmission.
A major advantage to O-SNCP vs. using an OPS card is that the transponders perform
the switching. Because the transponders are O-E-O devices, protection switching can
be triggered by digital performance monitoring. Excessive BER is monitored by a
provisionable parameter, sfth, that the user can set to BER=10-3, or 10-4, or 10-5,
when an 11STAR1 or 11STMM10 client port is provisioned to SONET/SDH. (See the
Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 User Provisioning Guide for complete parameter details.)
Defects that contribute to a switch of 10G LAN clients are Loss of Signal, Loss of
Synchronization, HIBER, and line-side OTN defects (LOS, LOF, LOM, etc.). The
HIBER threshold is not a provisionable parameter. The secondary path is monitored in
an identical manner.
Switching can be provisioned as uni-directional or bi-directional, the latter required to
support Gigabit Ethernet auto-negotiation with client switches/routers. Revertive and
non-revertive switching are supported.

Optical protection

Although the Y-cable is a single point of failure, it is only a passive component with a
very low failure rate. Note that there are three versions of the Y-cable: one supports
single-mode fiber connections (YSMF), and two support multi-mode client fiber:
50/125 (YMMF50) and 62.5/125 (YMMF62).
One restriction that applies to O-SNCP is that the transponder pair in each node must
reside in the same shelf, as they communicate over the shelf backplane for the
protection switching protocol.
Protection of alien wavelengths

Alien wavelengths are admitted into the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 at the SVAC
card. To support 1+1 optical layer protection for alien wavelengths, the OPS card is
used on the client side of a pair of redundant SVAC cards.
Refer to Figure 2-19, Protection of alien wavelengths (p. 2-24)
Figure 2-19 Protection of alien wavelengths

The OPS card operates in the same manner with the same features as in optical line
protection, but since it is on the client side of redundant SVAC cards.
Protection above the optical layer

The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 optical 1+1 protection architectures include a tool kit
that provides an alternative to protection above the optical layer by the client
equipment. For protection above the optical layer, SDH/SONET ADMs and XCs,
Ethernet switches, and IP routers can offer the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 redundant
client interfaces and perform protection switching at their respective higher layers.
For protection at the optical layer, the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 treats the two
interfaces independently and routes them diversely.
Although protection above the optical layer can often provide the highest availability, it
will also be the most expensive to deploy.

DWDM engineering rules


Overview

Every network is unique, and except for very simple networks each will require an
individual optical design. The generalized engineering rules described in this section
apply to networks with uniform span losses. These engineering rules can give an
indication as to the optical reach capabilities of the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32.
Figure 2-20, ERules - TOADM w/ingress amplification only (p. 2-26) shows the
maximum span loss that can be supported as a function of the number of spans and the
number of DWDM channels, when only ingress amplification is used. The span loss is
assumed to be equal to the span length (km) multiplied by 0.22 dB/km, plus 1 dB for
connectors. It is also assumed that all nodes are TOADM nodes (no FOADM nodes or
ILAs).

CWDM

CWDM
Overview

Compared to DWDM networks, CWDM networks have lower capacity and shorter
optical reach; however they are also lower in cost for certain applications where they
are suitable. Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 support for CWDM is another instance of the
products flexibility to cost-optimize for any Metro application, in this case usually for
Metro Access.
The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 supports up to eight CWDM wavelength channels
from the standardized optical grid specified by the ITU-T G.694.2 recommendation.
Channel spacing is 20 nm. The 8 channels are 1471, 1491, 1511, 1531, 1551, 1571,
1591, and 1611 nm.
When Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 is configured to support CWDM, it shares all the
same hardware as DWDM and is supported out of the same shelf. That is, a node can
be on a DWDM ring with a CWDM spur. The major hardware differences are that a
CWDM line uses CWDM filters, is not amplified, and uses an embedded GCC channel
instead of an OSC for supervisory communications.
CWDM filters

Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 R.1 includes three filter types.

SFC8: 8 add/drop channels; no pass-through channels. 1 variant.

SFC4x: 4 add/drop channels; 4 pass-through channels. 2 variants: x=A, B

SFC2x: 2 add/drop channels; 6 pass-through channels. 4 variants: x=A, B, C, D.

These filters do not support an OSC channel. Management information is


communicated node-to-node using the embedded GCC channel.
In a future release of Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32, an SFC1x will become available
with one add/drop channel and seven pass-through channels.
CWDM optical interface

In Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 R1.0, a CWDM spur off of a DWDM ring can be
realized by plugging a CWDM SFP or XFP into a client port of an Alcatel-Lucent
1830 PSS-32 optical transponder, which can connect to CWDM subtending equipment
on the spurs far end.
Two cases can be considered:

A CWDM XFP can be used on the client side of the 11STAR1 transponder. Two
reaches are available: 40 and 80 km. In this case, if the subtending device is an
Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-1 GBE edge device, then the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS
management domain can be extended via the embedded GCC channel.
A CWDM SFP can be used on the client side of the 11STGE12 and 11STMM10
transponders. 80-km reach is available.

In Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 R1.0, CWDM is not supported on the line-side of the
Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 optical transponders (only tunable DWDM lasers).
However, in a future release, new versions of the optical transponders will be available
where the tunable line side DWDM laser is replaced with one or two pluggable
line-side XFPs. At that time, it will be possible to plug CWDM XFPs into the line-side
of transponders to enable full CWDM networking.

Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 Hardware


Wired equipment

The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 hardware includes the wired equipment discussed in
this section.
Central office shelf (COSHF)/Universal shelf

The CO shelf is a 300mm/12-inch deep shelf (including all cabling, fibers, and shelf
cover), installable in 19-, 21-, and 23-inch racks. It is 14 RU (rack unit) high and up to
three shelves can be physically and thermally supported in a rack with 2000-mm
stacking space. All fibering is front access. Back-to-back racking is supported in an
ETSI frame.
Note: The terms COSHF and universal shelf are used interchangeably.

The 32 universal slots are arranged in two rows of 16, one above the other and
numbered 2 through 17 and 20 through 35 (shown in blue in Figure 2-23, CO shelf
slot numbering (p. 2-31)).
Figure 2-23 CO shelf slot numbering

Individual universal slots or combinations of universal slots are used to house cards of
varying height and width, enabling great flexibility and future-proofing the shelf. In
Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 R1.0, universal slots support amplifier cards, filter cards,
transponders, SVACs and OPSs.
Each vertically adjacent pair of universal slots is separated by a user-installable/
removable Half Slot Adaptor (HSALD). The HSALD provides mechanical support to
the top of the pack in the lower universal slot and to the bottom of the pack in the top
universal slot.

With an HSALD installed, an individual universal slot can house a half-height,


single-wide circuit pack. Without an HSALD to separate them, two vertically adjacent
universal slots can be combined to form a single full-height, single-wide slot. Then two
adjacent full-height single-wide slots can be combined to form a single full-height
double wide slot.
There are also dedicated slots for duplex ECs (1 and 18), duplex power filters (19 and
36), fan (37), and user interface panel (40). Slots 38 and 39 are for future use.
Blanks are used to cover unused slots to improve cooling air flow.
Equipment controller (EC)

The Equipment Controller provides all node and shelf control and management
functions. The functions performed by the EC depend in which shelf it resides.
In Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 R1.0, up to eight shelves can be managed as a single
NE. (In future software releases, R1.0 systems can be upgraded to support a larger
number, ultimately supporting up to 24 shelves as a single NE.) The first CO shelf is
the master shelf. The EC in the master shelf is the master EC, and it provides the
LAN interfaces to external management systems and subtending shelves. The EC
maintains the persistent database and configures all shelves and packs in the NE
accordingly, and it also monitors their health.
An EC in a subtending shelf is called a subtending EC, which coordinates all
communication within its shelf and communicates fault and performance data back to
the master EC.
Management connectivity between shelves is done via Ethernet ports on the ECs. Refer
to Figure 2-24, Sample multi-shelf NE connectivity (p. 2-33).

The shelf supports optionally redundant DC power filters, which terminate the -48VDC
/ -60VDC power feeders from the office power supply and provides the requisite
DC/DC conversion and power filtering for the shelf. Each PF is capable of sustaining
the entire load of the system. The shelf power and ground connectors are located at the
rear of the shelf. The power filters come in 30A, 50A, and 70A sizes (PFDC30,
PFDC50, and PFDC70, respectively).
User interface panel (USRPNL)

The User Interface Panel provides craft access, extra LAN connections, the VoIP
orderwire, housekeeping inputs/outputs, rack alarm/lamp outputs, system status
indicators, lamp test, and audible alarm cut-off push buttons. It mounts into the master
COSHF, but it is not used by the subtending shelves (if any).
Fan (FAN)

The shelf is cooled by an in-service, field-replaceable fan tray. The FAN houses two
variable-speed fans and a controller, which communicates with the EC to control the
FAN speed.
Fiber storage tray (FST)

The Fiber Storage Tray is rack-mountable and is used for managing excess cable
lengths within the boundaries of the rack.
DCM shelf (DCMSHFxx)

The DCM shelf is a rack-mountable tray used for holding multiple DCM modules.
There is one version that is mountable in 19-inch racks (DCMSHF19) and one in ETSI
and ANSI (23-inch) racks (DCMSHF23). The number of DCMs that a shelf can house
depends on the rack type and DCM type (length).
Attenuator drawer (ATTNDRW)

The attenuator drawer is a 1 RU-high rack-mountable tray for storage of up to 24


attenuators of any size, if/when attenuators are needed for FOADM nodes.
Flex shelf (FLEXxxxx)

The Flex Shelf is a 6 RU-high mounting kit with cover that accepts the rack-mountable
SFD44, DCMSHFxx, ATTNHDRW, and FST. It comes in three variants: FLEX19 for
19-inch racks, FLEX23 for 23-inch racks, and FLEXETSI for 300-mm ETSI racks.

Figure 2-25 Example TOADM shelf configuration

A ROADM starts with the TOADM configuration and adds static filters, either SFD5
filters into the shelf and/or SFD44 filters miscellaneously mounted in the rack.
A FOADM would not have any CWR8 cards. It would only have either SFD5 filters in
the shelf and/or SFD44 filters miscellaneously mounted in the rack.
In all cases, once the first shelf is filled, additional subtending shelves are added as
needed.
A special case is a transponder-only node that does not have any optical amplifiers or
filters. This configuration is used when Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 transponders are
used in conjunction with an existing and compatible DWDM line system, e.g., the
Alcatel-Lucent 1696 Metrospan and 1696ROADM.

Operation, administration, and maintenance

Web GUI interface

The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 network element (NE) includes a web server so that
craft can manage an NE from any Windows-based PC with a web browser, without the
need for any other special software.
Command line interface (CLI)

A CLI supports all 1830 PSS-32 system functionality.


Gateway network element (GNE)

The network management system can manage an 1830 PSS-32 network while only
connecting to a single 1830 PSS-32 NE. That NE is called a GNE and provides the
management connectivity to all other 1830 PSS-32 NEs in the network.
Inter-node communication
Optical supervisory channel (OSC)

The OSC is a separate optical channel, operating at the STM-1/OC-3 rate of 155 Mb/s,
that transfers management and control information between the ECs of two adjacent
nodes, regardless of whether any of the DWDM payload channels are terminated
between those two nodes. The channel is capable of transporting both IP and OSI
PDUs.
General communications channel (GCC)

No OSC available in CWDM transmission, so the GCC0 bytes in the G.709 overhead
are used for inter-node communication.
Management resiliency
Duplex equipment controllers

A node can be provisioned with a single EC or with duplex EC for 1+1 redundancy. In
the latter case, an EC failure will cause an automatic protection switch to the backup
EC. In either case, an EC failure does not affect transmission or service availability.
Multiple gateway NEs

More than one NE in an Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 network can be designated to be


a GNE. In this way, management connectivity can be maintained in the event of DCN
and/or Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 NE failures.
Redundant optical supervisory channel

For ring and collapsed ring topologies, OSC communications to all nodes will be
maintained in the event of a fiber break on any single span.

Fault management

The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 is provisionable on a per-port basis to detect/process,


and report faults, failures, and performance. It is able to diagnosis equipment faults
down to a field replaceable unit (FRU) or interface. Transport fault processing is
performed as defined in G.783 and EN 300 417. The system allows provisioning for
the SONET-specific LOS/LOF handling to satisfy Telcordia GR-253 issue 3 (2000) and
ANSI T1.231.
There is one system default alarm profile that contains all alarms/conditions supported
in the system and their severity: Critical, Major, Minor. The user can change the
severity of alarms on each port/facility independently or point to the system profile.
The system profile can be modified or reset to factory defaults
Optical line

Optical line fault processing is supported.


OTN

The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 complies to G.709 for defect/fault processing of


OTUk/ODUk overhead at all OTUk/ODUk interfaces.
The following is a short summary of the main functions.

Metro DWDM topologies


Overview

The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS supports an almost unlimited number of DWDM


network configurations and combined network configurations. Some of these
configurations are listed below. For more detailed information, refer to Chapter 3,
Topologies and configurations.

Simple point-to-point and linear topology with optical add-drop

Ring topology with optical add-drop


Transparent ring interconnection using multi-degree nodes with local add-drop

Additional mesh networking, e.g., in dual-node ring interconnection.

In these networks, each of the nodes can be FOADM, ROADM, or TOADM, although
the 4-degree nodes that perform ring interconnection would normally be ROADM or
TOADM.
Examples of these topologies are shown in Figure 2-26, Example: DWDM networks
for FOADM, ROADM, and TOADM (p. 2-44).

Networking overview
Introduction

The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 network consists of single, standalone network


element (NE), or two or more interconnected network elements that provide
SDH/SONET/GigE aggregation and transport, 10G, FC (R1.1), or transponderless
wavelength services in a metropolitan or regional networking environment.
Linear configuration

Figure 3-1, Linear network configuration (p. 3-2) shows network elements connected
in a linear fashion. While protection may be added by providing working and
protection fiber pairs between network elements, a cut in the fiber conduit used to
connect two network elements (assuming the working and protection fibers share the
same conduit) would isolate one or more network elements. This configuration is also
bandwidth limiting, since intermediate network elements must carry extensive
pass-through traffic.
Figure 3-1 Linear network configuration

Ring configuration

Figure 3-2, Ring network configuration (p. 3-3) shows network elements connected
in a ring. This configuration assures that in the case of a fiber cut, traffic can be safely
rerouted. However, in the case of a fiber cut, the ring configuration effectively
becomes a point-to-point linear configuration, with all of its inherent limitations.

Mesh configuration

A mesh network contains at least one network element that provides more than two
degrees of connectivity to other NEs in the network. For example, in the network
illustrated in Figure 3-4, Mesh network configuration (p. 3-5), NEs 2, 3, 5, and 6 ,
each connect to four different network fibers, and provide four degrees of network
connectivity. Because they provide multiple links and data paths between NEs, mesh
networks are highly resilient.

Network elements
Introduction

The network element (NE) is the basic building block for a network. Networks can
comprise hundreds of network elements
Each NE consists of a single shelf, or two or more interconnected shelves that are
equipped with the service cards required to provide network services. An NE, whether
it consists of one or more Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 shelves, is viewed as a single
entity by the network management system.
Transmission between NEs

Within the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 network, data is carried between the NEs over
optical fiber pairs as a single wavelength, or as multiple wavelengths, using
wavelength division multiplexing (WDM). Because WDM allows you to transmit
several signals over a single fiber pair, efficient use of the optical fiber plant is
ensured.
The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 supports dense wavelength division multiplexing
(DWDM) which allows you to carry up to 44 channels over a single fiber pair, as
described in Table 3-1, DWDM wavelength transmission (p. 3-6). Coarse wavelength
division multiplexing (CWDM) is also supported, which allows you to carry up to
eight channels over a single fiber pair, as described in Table 3-2, CWDM wavelength
transmission (p. 3-7).

TOADM configurations
Degree-2 TOADM

The basic configuration for an 8-channel, degree-2 TOADM is capable of adding and
dropping up to eight colorless CWR8 (non-WDM-specific) channels per optical line.
The node can be upgraded while in-service to 44-channel colored (WDM-specific) A/D
and mesh.
Refer to Figure 3-5, Degree-2 TOADM block diagram (p. 3-8) for an example that
depicts both directions of transmission with one and two OAs. Note that in the egress
direction, the OA is optional.
Figure 3-5 Degree-2 TOADM block diagram

Degree-3 TOADM mesh

Mesh TOADM connections are between CWR8 colorless-drop outputs and


colorless-add inputs. Additional through paths are established so that a channel entering
on one optical line can exit on any of the other CWR8 optical lines. Channels that are
added and dropped must be fibered to the correct optical line and connect only to OTs.
Refer to Figure 3-6, Degree-3 TOADM block diagram (p. 3-9) for an example.

FOADM Hub

A FOADM hub is a configuration of two lines in a ring where OTs terminate all
wavelengths. No channels cross transparently between these two lines. A FOADM hub
can be viewed as an East line terminal and a West line terminal in a single NE.
Refer to Figure 3-9, FOADM Hub block diagram (p. 3-11) for an example of a Hub
node that uses dual line terminals. Either end terminal can have one or two LDs, and
the egress LD is optional.
Figure 3-9 FOADM Hub block diagram

Degree-2 FOADM

The FOADM configuration faces both east and west directions. Traffic from the optical
lines can be added or dropped, and at least one single wavelength transits transparently
as permitted by the engineering rules (see the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 Engineering
and Planning Tool User Guide.
Refer to Figure 3-10, Degree-2 FOADM block diagram (p. 3-12) for an example
showing both directions of transmission in a FOADM with one or two OAs. Static
filter DWDMs (SFDs) can be SFD44 or SFD5.

DCMs, power, and control packs for a standard shelf.
Either the high-power, high-gain DWDM amplifier (AHPHG) or the low-power,
high-gain DWDM amplifier (ALPHG) LD can be used in an ILA configuration.
ALPHG is used for span losses up to 29 dB.
AHPHG provides 4 dB higher gain and output power than ALPHG and is used for
span losses up to 33 dB.
See the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 Engineering and Planning Tool User Guide for

TOADM networks
Introduction

Tunable OADM (TOADM) networks are designed such that any wavelength can be
added or dropped at any site, and the network can also be reconfigured in-service to
alter the wavelength routings. Because final wavelength routings are unknown at the
time of network design and deployment, this network design approach requires an
any-network-element- to-any-network-element analysis for all possible wavelength
routings.
In particular,

Lightpath link budget analysis must be pre-calculated to ensure that receive powers
and OSNR sensitivities are satisfied for all possible transponder types and all
possible wavelength routings
Dispersion compensation must be allocated in such a way that no matter where
wavelengths are added and dropped, the residual dispersion after compensation
remains within the dispersion tolerances for all possible transponder types

The Alcatel-Lucent Engineering and Planning Tool provides a simple way to both
specify a TOADM network design and to perform full network synthesis and analysis
of these constraints. Refer to the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 Engineering and
Planning Tool User Guide for information.

TOADM networks

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

The primary advantage of the TOADM design philosophy is to allow a design once,
provision forever model, in which:

No engineering analysis is required at lightpath turn-up, as all connectivity is


pre-verified
No service disruptions occur as new services are commissioned, or as capacity is
added.
No service disruptions occur for moves, adds, and changes to wavelength routings.

In order to accomplish this, it is important that the entire network element through-path
be installed during ring commissioning, so that through-wavelengths are not disturbed
during network element and network growth.
The secondary advantage of the TOADM model is the automated adaptation to
physical variations in the network; either variations in fiber plant losses from planned
values, or the natural variation of the various optical elements themselves.
TOADM rings

The typical TOADM topology is a ring in which lightpaths all begin and end on
TOADM network elements. The lightpaths may be created using either 1830 TOADM
transponders, or directly connected third-party ITU transponders. A TOADM ring
consists of two-degree TOADM NEs and, optionally, in-line amplifier.
In order to support any-to-any connectivity in the ring, the through path around the
ring is automatically balanced during network commissioning. The automatic balancing
adjusts amplifier gains around the ring through-path to ensure all channels leaving a
given node do so at the designed power level. After the ring has been commissioned,
automatic power management adapts to changes in the network to keep a given
channel within provisioned ranges, as described in the Automatic power management
section in Chapter 5, Operations, administration, maintenance, and provisioning.
Figure 3-13, TOADM ring network topology (p. 3-16) is an illustration of TOADM
ring network topology.

Linear TOADM networks

A linear TOADM network consists of a chain of two-degree TOADM NEs and,


optionally, an in-line amplifier and NEs that are terminated by single-degree NEs at
either end of the network, as shown in Figure 3-16, Two-degree TOADM NE linear
network (p. 3-19). The single-degree FOADM terminal NEs typically employ SFD
filtering, since they contain no through path and add/drop all of the wavelengths at the
site.

FOADM networks
Introduction

FOADM networks consist of one or more interconnected FOADM NEs. The possible
configurations are limited only by the number of channels allowed at an NE or allowed
on a network fiber.
The general rule for configuring FOADM networks is if a network can be connected, it
can be built. Therefore, FOADM networks can assume almost any configuration, such
as ring, linear, hub and spoke, or mesh. The limiting factor when designing FOADM
networks is the finite number of wavelengths that can be carried on a fiber.
A network fiber can carry a maximum of 44 wavelengths (using the SFD44 to provide
channel filtering) or 40 DWDM wavelengths (using SFD5 to provide channel filtering)
or 8 CWDM wavelengths (using SFC2, 4, 8). Only one instance of a particular channel
is allowed on a fiber. Multiple instances of the same channel may be re-used in the
network, provided they are on different fibers. Signal amplification is performed for all
DWDM channels on the fiber, but not for CWDM.
A FOADM ring is shown in Figure 3-17, FOADM HUB ring (p. 3-20). Note that a
FOADM HUB is needed in the ring to terminate each wavelength at least once to
prevent lasing.

Introduction

An interconnected Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 and Alcatel-Lucent PSS-1 GBE


network configuration provides a total flexible and cost-effective metro edge optical
network. This mixed network configuration can be accomplished by extending one or

Dangling OT configuration
Introduction

Beginning in Release 1.1, the line interface of Alcatel-Lucent 1830 OTs can be fibered
directly to a 1696R node for transport in a 1696-based network. For this application,
the 1830 OT provides a signal, with WaveTracker encoding and power management,
to the 1696R node. The OT itself is installed in an Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 shelf,
and is managed by the 1830 node.
Description

A dangling OT is an Alcatel-Lucent 1830 optical transponder, plugged into an


Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 shelf, and managed by the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 node, but
connected on the line side to a 1696R node. Because the line side optical ports
(transmit and receive) are not fiber-connected to a CWR or OMD pack in the 1830
PSS NE, this OT is characterized as a dangling OT on the 1696 network.

Overview
Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 shelves

The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 system supports three types of shelves: universal,
DCM, and OMD.
Universal shelf

The universal shelf is the basic building block for the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32
network element (NE). It provides a framework for all active modules in a system
(such as controller, interface cards, etc.).
DCM and OMD shelves

DCM and OMD shelves are passive module shelves that hold DCM and SFD44
modules. These modules provide dispersion compensation and optical mux/demux
function associated with core optics modules (line drivers and CWR8, respectively)
that are present in the universal shelf. Each Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 Network
Element (NE) includes up to 8 universal shelves and up to 24 DCM/OMD shelves.

Universal shelf
Overview
Overview

The universal shelf provides the framework upon which all configurations of the
Alcatel-Lucent 1830 Photonic Service Switch-32 (1830 PSS-32) NEs are constructed.
The universal shelf provides card slots, fiber management trays, backplane, power
distribution, and cooling for the NE. Network elements can be deployed in a single
shelf or expanded as the need arises to multiple interconnected universal shelves.
The first universal shelf of an NE becomes the master shelf and provides the
management and control connections to the operations systems for the cluster of
shelves in a multi-shelf NE. Expansion shelves connect to the master self via protected
internal LAN communication links and provide extended slot capacity managed by the
single database that resides in the master shelf.
Refer to Figure 4-1, Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 Universal Shelf (p. 4-4) .

Universal shelf
Overview

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

Each universal shelf has a shelf ID Number that can be configured via a physical
mechanism (rotary dial) on the backplane. Up to eight bits of information can be set.
Shelf ID determines identity of each universal shelf in the cluster, while the most
significant bit of the rotary dial determines its role (that is, main or extension shelf).
The rotary dial for each shelf must be set to a valid value; this value must be unique
within the same NE. The values of the rotary dial shall be interpreted as follows.
Bits 4-3-2-1-0 code the Shelf ID Number, an integer in the range 1-8.

Bit 7 = zero >> Shelf role = not-Main Shelf


Bit 7 = one >> Shelf role = Main Shelf

Bits 6-5 of the rotary dial must be set to 0 (zero).


Single-shelf layout

A single-shelf network element (NE) consists of one universal shelf acting as a main
shelf. One shelf in each NE has the role of main shelf. This designation is by a
backplane rotary dial setting of 0x81 (Shelf Role = Main Shelf, Shelf ID = 1). When a
new universal shelf boots up and finds that its rotary dial is set to 0x81, it
automatically provisions itself with AID = SHELF-1 and TYPEID = UNV. The shelf
then begins to perform the role of the main shelf, relative to control and
communication functions within an NE.
Note: Two main shelves (i.e., two NEs) can not be connected by internal LAN
cable as if they belonged to a single NE (that is, as if one was subordinate to the
other).
Mandatory equipment

Each shelf contains mandatory modules equipped; some of the shelves can also have
optional modules equipped.
Mandatory equipment must be automatically provisioned whether present or not. Each
shelf includes the following mandatory equipment.

One shelf controller (EC) in either slot 1 or slot 18

Two power modules (PF)


A fan module (FAN)

The user interface panel (USRPNL) is mandatory on the main shelf only; it is not
allowed on other shelves. Mandatory equipment is provisioned without AINS state.
(AINS = Automatic In Service, which allows newly provisioned entities to be inserted
at the later time without generating alarms). Therefore, if mandatory equipment is not
present, it will be alarmed (assuming its absence is detected).

Note: Automatic provisioning of mandatory equipment is differs from the


auto-provisioning defined for non-mandatory equipment. Mandatory equipment is
provisioned regardless of module presence detection. Non-mandatory equipment is
auto-provisioned only upon equipment detection and validation.
For non-mandatory equipment, the following modes must be defined for provisioning:

Auto-provisioning, also referred to as Plug & Play, where the EC provisions a card
upon discovering the card
Pre-provisioning, where the slot is provisioned in advance of a card being inserted

Mandatory modules
Overview

Mandatory equipment in a shelf includes the Equipment Controller (EC), Power Filter
(PF) module, Fan (FAN) module, and the user interface panel (USRPNL) (on the main
shelf only).
Equipment controller (EC)

The Equipment Controller (EC) module provides main processing and communication
function in a universal shelf and provides system storage resource when the EC is
located in the main shelf. Figure 4-3, EC faceplate (p. 4-9) illustrates the faceplate of
an EC.

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

Each universal shelf contains at least one active EC. A standby EC can be configured
(and equipped) to provide controller redundancy. The NE can operate normally
(without alarms) with a single EC in each universal shelf.
Active and standby controllers operate in non-revertive protection arrangement. In this
context, non-revertive switching means that if an EC switchover occurs for any reason,
including a fault, the system will not switch back to the original EC after the fault is
cleared.
EC protection provides both automatic switch and user-initiated switch capability.
When both EC modules are present in universal shelf and they take Active or Stand-by
relationship:

Active EC: This EC is responsible for all run-time EC operations in the system.
Standby EC (when present): This EC is responsible for monitoring the operation of
the Active

Shelf ID

If the shelf ID is one (1), that shelf is designated as the main shelf. The Active and
Standby ECs in the main shelf are designated as Master ECs. There is always one (and
only one) main shelf per node. This shelf will always contain an Active Master EC and
connectivity to the USRPNL panel. If the node has only one shelf, the Active Master
EC performs the functionality of both the Master and the Subtending EC. If the node
consists of multiple shelves, the Master shelf contains the Master EC, and all
subsequent shelves contain Subtending ECs.
Note: The circuit pack hardware is identical for both the Master and Subtending
EC. Only the behavior of the pack changes based on the slot position and the shelf
ID.
Active Master EC

The Active Master EC performs the following functions.

Maintains a heartbeat mechanism with its companion EC

Provides the external LAN interface for management of all shelves in a multi-shelf
node

Terminates and or generates all communications with the management system. This
includes communications intended to/from the Subtending shelves. It forwards
information intended for a Subtending shelf to the proper EC.

Maintains persistent database and configures all shelves and packs in the node
using data in the persistent database.
Maintains the power state of all cards in the local universal shelf and monitors
voltage from the power filters in the same shelf.

and updates its own persistent storage

Subtending EC

The Subtending EC performs the following functions.

Provides protected communication with the EC in the main shelf (Master EC for a
node)
The Active Subtending EC maintains the power state of all local cards in the
universal shelf and monitors the voltage output from the power filters in the that
shelf.

The Active Subtending EC monitors the health of all packs in the local shelf and
forwards fault, and performance information to the Active Master EC.

The Active Subtending EC monitors all services performed by a shelf and forwards
fault, and performance information to the Active Master EC.

The Active Subtending EC coordinates all communication within a shelf and


communication to the master shelf.

The Active Subtending EC stores LC application images in its local mass storage
and provides the application images from its mass storage unit to the LC cards in
the same shelf at boot time (when an LC card is reset or on request from the
Master EC).

The Standby Subtending EC monitors the operation of the Active EC, provides
access to all shared resources, and updates its own persistent storage.

Power filter

Power Filter cards condition the DC power feeds that power the network element (NE)
and protect against surge currents, low supply voltage, and other electromagnetic
interference.
Refer Figure 4-4, Power filter faceplate (p. 4-11)to for an illustration.

Power filter modules

Battery plant redundant feeds are brought into the system through the power filter (PF)
modules and distributed to each slot through the backplane pins. External (typically,
battery generated) DC voltages are filtered by the two PFs and distributed within the
shelf by a copper power plane. Each PF provides the 3.6V service voltage that is
distributed by the backplane. PFs also provide power to the USRPNL panel in the
main shelf.
The PF contains a resettable circuit breaker at its faceplate that protects the battery
feed. The PF module is also the source of a shared (Stratum 3 accuracy, +4.6 ppm)
precision clock source that is used to generate the Wavelength Tracker modulation and
serve as a high precision clock source for other transmission-related services.
Point-to-point connections from each PF slot to all function slots, as well as the
controller slots, carry this clock signal. Providing these clock sources on the PF
eliminates the need to add highly stable 4.6-ppm oscillators on every circuit card that
provides a Wavelength Tracker encode or decode function. The PF module also
contains a temperature sensor that measures inlet air temperature which is then used to
provide input into FAN control algorithm (adjusting FAN speed based on inlet
temperature).
There are three types of PF modules (based on the maximum current supported by
embedded circuit breaker): 30A, 50A and 70A. The required PF module types depends
on equipage in the shelf (refer to the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 Installation and
System Turn-Up Guide). Typical implementation is that the 30A module is used for
ILA (in-line amplifier, optical regeneration sites) configurations; 50A module used for
most universal shelves; 70A module is used for shelf densely equipped with high
power consumption packs such as 11STMM10 OTs. The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32
Engineering and Planning Tool provides information about the required PF module
type to be used in the specific shelf (according to the entered services to be supported
by the shelf).
FAN module

The fan tray plugs directly into the backplane and connects to the power, control, and
monitoring leads. It is located directly above the function card slots. The fan tray
contains three powerful FAN modules, each individually monitored and
speed-controlled by network element (NE) software.
Refer to Figure 4-5, Fan tray faceplate (p. 4-13) for an illustration.

A temperature sensor that is located within each PF measures the inlet temperature.
During operation of the fan unit, the EC adjusts the speed of each fan according to the
algorithm that optimizes airflow and noise level to maintain required thermal profile in
the shelf. The EC also monitors the status of FANs in the FAN module and provides
Alarmed condition to inform users of a possible malfunction.

Management and communication access points consist of the following interfaces.

Four general-purpose switched auto-sensing LAN ports (10/100BaseTX), for


connection to EMS/NMS, VoIP, and externally managed devices.
The OAMP port connect NE to the External Management System (EMS). The VoIP
port connect an IP phone to an IP managed DCN within Alcatel-Lucent 1830
PSS-32 domain. The two external LAN ports connect to externally managed
devices. These ports are auto-sensing, so either a cross-over or straight-thru
Ethernet cable can be used.

Two craft ports. One is designed as a female (DB9) and the other a USB-B port.
Both support local RS-232C serial interface (support setting: 9600 baud, 1 stop bit,
no parity) for connection to craft terminal via a serial link. When USB-B port and
DB9 ports are simultaneously connected, preference is given to the USB-B port.
The USB-B port becomes active, and the DB9 port is rendered inactive.

External input/output access points are implemented as DB-9, DB-15, and DB-25
connectors. They are dedicated to rack lamps (RL), rack alarm (RA), and housekeeping
(HKP) interfaces. Rack lamps and Rack alarms are implemented as relay contacts
controlled by network element software (NE SW) to indicate presence of conditions of
specified severity in the NE. Housekeeping interface represents four relay contacts used
as controlled outputs and eight miscellaneous external inputs.

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

Non-mandatory modules
Overview

Non-mandatory modules can be grouped in the following three categories: Core optics
modules, optical transponder modules, and miscellaneous modules.
Core optics modules

Core optics modules include the following modules.


Line driver module functionality

Line driver modules provide several important functions that comprise optical transport
section of a DWDM optical line

Unidirectional optical amplification

Optical supervisory channel (OSC) generation/termination

Dispersion compensation access points


Optical line and individual optical channel monitoring points

Optical monitoring access point (OSA access point for non-intrusive monitoring
with external equipment)

Electrical access point for remote passive module inventory monitoring (DCM
and/or SFD44 modules)

Line driver modules (as optical amplifiers)

Optical amplification function is performed via a multi-stage EDFA amplifier with


mid-stage DCM access. Amplifier is implemented as integrated variable gain optical
amplifier module (VGOAM) that includes fast feedback for transient control.
Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 includes two types of VGOAMs: High Power High Gain
(AHPHG) and Low Power High Gain (ALPHG).
High gain indicates that amplifier gain can be 20 dB and higher; low gain indicates
that the gain of the amplifier is less then 20 dB. High power indicates that the
maximum total output power of the amplifier can be 20 dBm and higher. Low power
indicates that the maximum total output power is less than 20 dBm
This results in two line driver/optical amplifier (LD/OA) types (AHPHG and ALPHG)
that are used in various configurations, depending on target power and OSNR values in
the network. The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 Engineering and Planning Tool is used
to design the DWDM network and select type and number of LD modules on each
optical transport section (OTS) line. Each OTS line has at least an ingress (receive)
amplification module while some lines may have both ingress and egress (transmit)
amplification modules.

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

Each ingress LD module provides an optical supervisory channel (OSC) access point.
OSC provides high-speed data communication channel between adjacent OTS lines as
well as maintenance, monitoring, and customer clear channel communication function.
OSC is implemented as OC3 compliant digital structure with ~149 Mb/s payload
capacity for data communication and clear-channel transport. Physical layer of OSC
channel is implemented as 1510-nm OC3 SFP.
Optical monitoring is performed using the Wavelength Tracker (WT) technology. WT
uses power detector, A/D & D/A and Wavelength Tracker Decoder (WTD). The WT
and the DSP algorithm provides the power and wavelength, residual chromatic
dispersion, and OSNR information of the DWDM channels at the input and outputs of
the amplifier and before the launch to the span.
Each LD also contains two MON ports that can be connected to customer monitoring
equipment for monitoring the optical signal after the amplifier and output to the span.
Optional dispersion compensation modules (DCMs) are fibered to the mid-stage access
ports of LD. Number and type of DCM modules needed in particular points in an
Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 network is determined by the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32
Engineering and Planning Tool, based on target dispersion map required to support
10G services between any two points in the DWDM network. When DCM is not used,
a 10-dB pad is placed instead.
Refer to Figure 4-7, Line driver (p. 4-16) for an illustration.
Figure 4-7 Line driver

Colorless wavelength router (CWR8)

The Colorless Wavelength Router (CWR8) module provides one of the major functions
among the core optics packs which involves routing of optical channels (single
configurable wavelength or a set of configurable wavelengths) between OTS lines and
Colorless Add/Drop points. CWR8 module provides essential function for tunable
optical add/drop (TOADM) architecture. The main sub-module of the CWR8 is 1x9
Wavelength Selective Switch (WSS), which allows configurable add/drop of selected
wavelength(s).
As shown in Figure 4-8, Functional diagram of CWR8 module within an optical line
(p. 4-17), WSS is positioned in the ingress optical flow of the CWR8 module, while
egress optical flow consists of combiners and EDFA.

Areas indicated by dashed lines represent logical layers (OTS, OMS and OCh) aligned
with ITU-T G.709 and G.798 equipment functional models.
Colorless 8-channel Wavelength Router (CWR8) packs support drop, through, and add
path.

Incoming channels go through the first coupler, and part of the signal goes to
broadband drop port that connects to the demux port of the SFD44/10/5 for colored
drop.

Signal can connect to a test port at the input to verify the connectivity during
commission.

Up to eight (8) colorless drops are routed to service ports 1-8 of the 1x9 WSS.
When mesh is supported, one or more of these ports become mesh output ports. No
limitation exists on which of colorless ports are being used as mesh from optical
architecture point of view.

Through channels are routed to through port 9 of the 1x9 WSS.


The WSS has adjustable per-channel attenuation for equalizing drop and thru
channels.

Colorless add channel comes into the CWR8 from the OT via an 8x1 combiner and
are coupled with the colored add channel that comes from the SFD before the
add-amplifier.

The add-amplifier is a fixed gain C-band EDFA. The output of this amplifier goes
through a VOA and is then combined with the through channel on a single fiber to
feed into the LD.

CWR8 also contains three IPDs (shown as monitor points 3, 4 & 5 in Figure 4-9,
CWR8 (p. 4-18)) that are integrated with WTD for optical channel monitoring.

Figure 4-9 CWR8

In addition to optical ports, the CWR8 module includes an electrical port that is used
to monitor remote passive module inventory (SFD44 modules). For additional optical
port information see Table 9-13, CWR8 specifications (p. 9-17).
Static filter DWDM modules (SFD5, SFD44)

Static Filter DWDM modules perform the following functions.

Optical multiplexer function: receives colored optical signal from the transponder
sub-system, multiplexes the signal (together with other bands) into a WDM signal,
and launches the WDM signal to the OTS line directly (with or without an
amplification) or to the colorless port of CWR8 module.

Optical demultiplexer function: receives the WDM line signal, demultiplexes this
signal, and sends the individual optical channels to the transponder subsystem.

Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 supports two types of Static Filter DWDM modules.

Static Filter DWDM 5 channel (SFD5) module which can be inserted in one
half-height, single-width slot of the universal shelf.
Static Filter DWDM 44 channel (SFD44) module that is implemented as a passive
module mounted in a rack outside the universal shelf. Inventory monitoring for
SFD44 is accomplished via CWR8 or LD electrical inventory access points.

SFD5 module

SFD5 modules support set of five DWDM wavelengths from C-band. To cover the
whole C-band spectrum, eight types of SFD5 modules are supported: SFD5A, SFD5B,
SFD5C, SFD5D, SFD5E, SFD5F, SFD5G, and SDF5H.

The SFD5 card performs optical wavelength multiplex/demultiplex operations for five
consecutive ITU channels to/from an optical band. In addition, the SFD5 performs a
pass-through of all other bands from the SFD ingress port to the SFD egress port.
Refer to Figure 4-10, SFD5 functional diagram (p. 4-19)for an illustration

SFD44 module

The SFD44 shelf is a unit which mux/demuxes up to 44 C-band DWDM channels onto
a single fiber. SFD44 is a passive device mounted externally to the Alcatel-Lucent
1830 PSS-32 shelf in its own 1RU (one rack unit height) shelf.
Remote inventory information (EEPROM data such as module name, part number,
serial number) is monitored by CWR8 or LD module that belongs to DWDM optical
line to which SFD44 is connected. Presence of SFD44 passive module is monitored by
electrical inventory connection to CWR8/LD module.

Optical transponder (OT) modules

The traditional function of optical transponder (OT) modules is to provide


optical-electrical-optical (O-E-O) signal processing and adaptation of a colorless signal
to a specific optical channel wavelength within a DWDM/CWDM domain. In addition
to O-E-O signal regeneration, OTs perform various other functions in an electrical
domain, such as adaptation of client information structure to a carrier information
structure, multiplexing of client signals onto a carrier, cross-connection or protection
function, maintenance/monitoring function, data communication function, etc.
Generic OT model can be described through an interaction with other sub-systems
(through a backplane electrical connections) and external world (through a front
faceplate access).
Typical OT function provides O-E-O conversion. All transmission interface is through
a front access via optical transceivers. Some OT applications such as ADM on a
blade might require some type of switching sub-function and transmission interface in
the backplane towards a companion ADM OT. Furthermore, hybrid OT/TDM/IO
implementation might require transmission interfaces on the backplane side. Besides
transmission interfaces, ADM on a blade might require protection control signals
between the ADM and companion OTs.
Front side of the OT also provides status indication via a set of LEDs and possible
other indicators.
OT function also requires control, power, communicationand in some
applicationstiming interfaces in the backplane (note that COM indicates
communication interface to the system control infrastructure).
Refer to Figure 4-14, Generic OT functional model (p. 4-23) for an illustration.

Specific OT module description

This section provides a functional view of all OT functions supported by


Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 Release 1.0. Internal hardware architecture for specific
OTs, their transmission interfaces, signal processing, protection capability, status
indication, and to a certain extent, control and timing interface are also described.
Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 supports the following optical transponder modules.

10 client port multi-service module with 11G tunable line side (11STMM10)

12 client Ethernet port with 11G tunable line side (11STGE12)


1 client port multi-service module with 11G tunable line side (11STAR1)

All the aforementioned OT modules support the following basic functionality.


Transmission

OTs provide multi-rate and multi-protocol interfaces. Signal types, rates, or protocol
types configurable through a user interface.

OT physical interfaces are implemented as either tunable transceiver modules or as


pluggable modules SFPs/XFPs.

OTs provide inventory, monitoring, and digital diagnostics for XFP and SFP
modules. [In order to provide this function pluggable, modules must be qualified,
and their EEPROM format/content and monitoring capability must comply to
appropriate mid-stage access amplifier (MSA)]

Line-side signal digital structures are compliant with pertinent ITU-T G.709
structures.

Line-side FEC is provisionable for standard G.709 FEC [(Reed-Solomon (255,239)


codec] and EFEC, for higher coding gain.

Line-side tunability: All 44 channels. Optical frequency can be configured by


network element software (NE SW).

Faults and maintenance

Fault processing is performed consistent with ITU-T functional models pertinent to


OT implementation (fault processing includes defect detection/clearing, correlation,
and consequent actions).

Fault processing not explicitly defined in standard documents (such as


provisionable consequent action type towards the client, Laser_off, and
Unframed_AIS).

Ethernet services support all PDU sizes, including jumbo frames.


Transport of Ethernet services support link fault propagation for Remote Fault
Indication as well as loss of signal and loss of character/block synchronization.
GFP transport modes use Client Management frames to transfer fault indication to
the far-end. As a result of detecting client management frame with fault indication,
associated transmitter will be turned off or maintenance signal generated.

Loopbacks: Each OT supports terminal and line loopback type on each of the ports.
Facility loopback is defined as ability for the received optical/electrical external
transmission signal of being looped back from the port function input back toward
the port function output. Terminal loopback is defined as ability for the electrical
transmission signal (on optical interface port functions) of being looped back from
the port function output back toward the port function input
Each of the OT ports that can be configured as a DWDM line port and provides
ability to encode Wavelength Tracker label.
Status indicators are implemented as LEDs. There is a dedicated OT pack status
and individual port status indicators (LEDs).
OTs are architectured to support software upgrades that can be implemented in
non-traffic affecting manner.

Firmware upgrade capability.

11STAR1 OT module

The 11STAR1 module is implemented as a half-half slot multi-rate and multi-protocol


interface blade capable of supporting Tunable Transponder on the line side. It supports
the following client signals: OC-192, STM-64, 10GbE WAN PHY, 10GbE LAN PHY,
OTU-2 with G.709 FEC, and 10G Fibre Channel. Client signals are transported as
constant bit rate (CBR) signals, in which case transport is transparent to the client bit
stream and timing or encapsulated (using GFP encapsulation method).
When GFP encapsulated transport method is used, the pack is transparent for client
signal characteristic information, (Ethernet PDUs, preamble and semi-transparent for
sequence ordered sets.)

11STAR1 pack allows user-configurable consequent action to the fault indication


detected on the line side signal. The consequent actions are Laser_OFF, Framed AIS
(LFI ordered set for 10GbE LAN), and Unframed AIS (Generic-AIS). Software and
firmware upgrade are non-service affecting. Latency through this OT is outside of FEC
processing and is negligible.

Takes the clock signals onto parallel data path to next module
Implements the tunable (44/88-channel tunable) line-side interface

OT protection

11STAR1, 11STMM10, and 11STGE12 OTs support several protection configurations.

Per-channel optical line protection (with OPS) (1+1 optical path)

Optical sub-block network connection protection (O-SCNP) [O-SNCP, 1+1 Optical


Path & Equipment protection configuration (Y-cable splitter/coupler between the
pair of OTs and client equipment)]

Diverse route
Note: Y-cable protection cannot currently be used with OTM0.2 client on 11STAR1
OT. ODU2 is handled transparently, so APS/PCC bytes are not available for
protection signaling.

Protection configurations

In optical Path protected configuration OT modules, colored line interface is connected


to two OTS lines via an OPS pack (Optical Protection Switching pack). Optical signal
is bridged in the source direction and transported via diverse optical paths through a
DWDM domain. In sink direction, one of the two received signals is selected by a 2:1
optical switch. This type of protection is 1+1 unidirectional type, where autonomous
switch decision can be made based on monitoring optical power on the received
signals
O-SNCP configuration relies on client transmitter arbitration between the peer
protected entities (OT packs in adjacent slots). Using so called Y-cable client input is
split and fed to both OT client port inputs while OT client port outputs are run through
a 2:1 coupler. Protection manager (implemented in OT HW) on each of the OTs
collects tributary status signals from local tributary (by reading local HW registers or
via SW interrupt service routine processing) and from the adjacent companion OT (via
backplane link). Status of both tributaries is input to a state machine which determines
the state of associated transponder.
This implementation allows 1+1 protection applications, either unidirectional or
bidirectional. One protected instance can be supported per each client adaptation
function. In the case of 11STMM10 and 11STGE12 packs, there could be up to ten
client adaptation functions while in 11STAR1 there is one client adaptation function.
As shown in Figure 4-21, 1+1 Protection using Y-cable (p. 4-41) , a pair of OT
packs in adjacent slots (horizontal adjacency is supported for full height packs and
vertical adjacency for half height modules) are configured for 1+1 protection using
Y-cable. Protection manager manages one instance of protection state machine which
takes inputs such as Signal Fail (SF[n] where n=1,..,10) or Signal Degrade (SD[n]
where n=1,..,10) from both local and companion pack. Based on these inputs and

additional SW controls (to implement Manual, Forced and Inhibit switch requests)
protection manager determines the ON/OFF state of the associated client transmitter.
Protection on one client port shall be done independently from protection on the other
ports.
This implementation ensures fast protection switching based on autonomous failures of
either transmission path or supporting equipment entities. Switching is accomplished in
period shorter then 10 ms (detection, except SD) + 50 ms (switch completion) for
failures such as dLOS, dLOF, or equipment failures.
Note: Protection switching time may exceed 60ms, if the active pack (the pack that
is carrying transmission) is removed or reset cold.
Follow the procedure below, before removing or performing a cold reboot on a
pack that is a member of an APS y-cable group.
1. Check APS status to determine which is the active pack.
2. If the pack you plan to remove or reset is the active pack, perform a force
switch to standby.
3. Check the APS status again and make sure the pack you intend to remove or
reset cold is the standby pack.
4. Perform cold reset or remove the pack.

Pluggable modules

Each client port on OTs is implemented with pluggable modules to provide flexibility
in supporting various physical layer requirements associated with configured signal
type.
The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 system allows user to configure expected pluggable
modules to the following types.

Specific module type from the list of acceptable modules of that entity (see Table
2-7, SFP list (p. 2-36) and Table 2-8, XFP list (p. 2-37)).
Automatic module type detection and configuration
User-specific module type

For the first two options, Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 system provides monitoring of
mismatch between the expected and actual inserted pluggable module in the configured
slot. The third option is intended for users that prefer to use pluggable modules outside
of the set approved by ALU. In that case, module mismatch monitoring is not
supported.

Refer to Table 2-7, SFP list (p. 2-36) and Table 2-8, XFP list (p. 2-37) for a listing
of Alcatel-Lucent approved pluggable module types that allow explicit expected
module provisioning (user configures one of the modules in the list explicitly) or
provides automatic detection and provisioning of the module upon insertion.
Automatic module detection

Automatic module type detection and configuration is accomplished by configuring


desired interface MODULETYPE on associated port entity to AUTO.
When MODULETYPE is set to AUTO, upon port provisioning, the NE SW performs
the following steps:
1. Monitors for pluggable module insertion
2. When pluggable module insertion (module presence if attribute change has been
performed) is detected, read the module EEPROM and compare content to find a
match to a module in acceptable module list for that port.
3. If a match to a module in an ALU acceptable type list is found, automatically
configure MODULETYPE attribute to the matched type.
4. Generate autonomous message to indicate MODULETYPE change.
5. If EEPROM content doe not match any of the modules in an acceptable types for
that port, declare UNKNOWN condition on the port and retain MODULETYPE
value of AUTO.
This process allows user to configure and monitor consistency between expected and
actual pluggable modules in an easy manner. Refer to the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32
User Provisioning Guide for more information.
Miscellaneous non-mandatory modules

In addition to core optics and OT modules, Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 also supports
the following modules

Optical Protection Switch (OPS) module

Single Variable Attenuator Card (SVAC) module

OPS module is used to provide optical layer protection functionality. SVAC serves as
demarcation point for Alien optics input to the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 DWDM
domain. These modules are logically positioned between the OT modules and core
optics modules hence they are listed in this document in a separate group.
OPS module

The OPS card provides photonic protection switching in DWDM configurations for
any supported channel in the C-band, allowing user to provide 1+1 dedicated OCh
protection for any optical signal carried in the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 DWDM
domain.

Refer to Figure 4-22, OPS functional diagram (p. 4-43) for an illustration.
Figure 4-22 OPS functional diagram

As shown in Figure 4-22, OPS functional diagram (p. 4-43), the OPS card performs
head-end bridging and tail-end switching of an optical signal.

At the head end of the protected link, an optical signal is split into two identical
signals and sent over a specified OCh path to another OPS card at the tail end of
the protected link. There are also electronic variable optical attenuators (eVOAs)
controlling the A and B port transmit power.

At the tail end, the total optical power of each of the received signals is monitored.
A switch is initiated if the total optical power of one of the signals falls below a
defined threshold (according to the rules associated with OPS protection state
machine).

The threshold level at which a switch is initiated, is calculated automatically by the


system on a per-port basis on port A and port B only. When the total optical power of
an input signal falls below a threshold, the OPS card performs a protection switch with
signal disturbance of less then 50 ms due to protection switching execution.
Note: LOS switch thresholds and tolerance can be also be provisioned manually,
but only an expert user should manually provision the thresholds. The commands
used to accomplish this are only available at the Admin or Service security level.
(See the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS User Provisioning Guide, and Command Line
Interface Commands Guide (Vol.I) for details.)
In addition to autonomous switching based on monitoring of input LOS, OPS provides
user protection management by supporting Manual, Forced and Lockout protection
requests. OPS protection state machine supports 1+1 unidirectional, non-revertive
protection.
The optical protection switch (OPS) pack is implemented as a half-height module that
can be configured in any of the universal slots in the universal shelves.
Refer to Figure 4-23, OPS module faceplate (p. 4-44) for an illustration.

The following are the basic functions provided by SVAC as demarcation and
adaptation for so-called alien (foreign wavelength) channel.

Encodes the Wavelength Tracker wave keys onto the optical channel.
Automatically adjusts a variable optical attenuator (VOA) on each channel to set
the channel output optical power to the target level determined by NE SW
Monitors incoming alien wavelength optical power level and appropriate alarming.

SVAC is implemented as a half-height module that can be configured in any of the


universal slots in the universal shelves.
Multi-shelf arrangement

Multiple Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 shelves can be configured as a single NE. Refer
to Figure 2-24, Sample multi-shelf NE connectivity (p. 2-33) for an illustration that
shows an example TOADM NE with three universal shelves, one DCM shelf with one
DCM module, and one OMD shelf. The positions of the connections on the individual
cards and modules are for illustration purposes only.

DCM shelf
Overview
Overview

A DCM enclosure can hold a maximum of 16 DCM modules. The system models each
DCM module as a separate shelf. The inventory port of a DCM module can be
connected to an inventory port on an LD card (shown as a green line in Figure 2-24,
Sample multi-shelf NE connectivity (p. 2-33)). If connected, the inventory port must
be connected to the same LD as the Line to which it is connected. The DCM shelf can
be user-provisioned or auto-detected.
Note: The distance limit of the serial electrical inventory wire is short enough that
some customers will need to locate the DCM beyond the distance limit. In order to
accommodate a users need to mount the DCM shelf outside the range of electrical
inventory monitoring cable, Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 supports non-managed
DCM shelves.

Fault detection and alarm management
Overview

Fault management is a set of functions that enable detection, isolation, and correction
of abnormal operation of the telecommunication network and its environment.
Alarm reporting is the notification to external management systems of the internally
detected faults.
The fault processing and alarm reporting functions are part of the supervision function
of the NE that monitors and manages the NE transmission resources (logical/physical
facilities and associated equipment modules).
Fault management functions

The fault management function consists of the following supervision categories:


transmission, equipment, processing, and correlation. The primary goal of this function
is to monitor and report any failure within the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 system by
identifying the probable cause of abnormal operation of transmission resource
supported by the NE.
Transmission supervision

Transmission supervision consists of the following functions.

Continuity supervision (monitoring of LOS, UNEQP, OCI, etc.)


Connectivity supervision (monitoring of TIM)

Quality supervision (monitoring of DEG and EXC)

Payload type supervision (monitoring of PLM)


Multiplex structure supervision (monitoring of payload structure mismatch, PSM)

Alignment supervision (monitoring of LOF, LOM, and Loss of alignment in VCAT


or GFP frame stream)

Protocol supervision (monitoring of FOP in protection configurations)

Backward indication supervision (monitoring for BDI, BIAE, and RDI)


Alarm correlation and suppression (generation and monitoring of AIS, FDI, and
SSF)

Transmission supervision is implemented according to the specific functional model of


the facility being supervised. Details on set of monitored points, detection criteria, and
condition types are provided in the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 Maintenance and
Trouble-Clearing Guide.

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

Equipment supervision

Equipment supervision provides monitoring, detection, and isolation of


equipment-related problems and abnormal behavior. In general, equipment supervision
comprises the supervision of interchangeable and non-interchangeable units and cables.
Probable causes in this category include power, timing, temperature, and other
equipment specific abnormalities.
Processing supervision

Processing supervision is generally associated with a software or software processing


fault. Probable causes in this category include: software errors, communication errors,
version mismatches, DB consistency errors, etc.
Correlation and suppression

A correlation and suppression function is performed in order to isolate the root cause
of the abnormal system operation. It also suppresses alarming in downstream NEs that
are involved in providing end-to-end service.
Alarm reporting

The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 system provides defect processing, correlation, and
probable cause declaration for each piece of equipment and facility and generates
autonomous message towards the management system (alarm or event) based on the
provisioned alarm severity.
The NE supports four levels of NE condition reporting: CR, MJ, MN, and No Alarm.
A No Report condition is supported for conditions not reported.

Conditions with a notification code CR (critical), MJ (major), MN (minor) are


reported as alarms.

Conditions with a notification code NA (Non Alarmed) are reported as events


(standing conditions).
Conditions with a notification code NR (Not Reported) are autonomously reported
but can be retrieved by user.

All alarms and conditions are available to the management systems as follows:

Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 supports autonomous reporting and logging of all


alarms and conditions via WebUI or SNMP interfaces.

Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 supports retrieval of all alarms and conditions via CLI,
WebUI or SNMP interfaces.

Management and retrieval of alarm logs is available via CLI, WebUI, and SNMP.

Fault detection and alarm management

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

All alarms that are reported by the system shall be time-stamped at the source.
All standing conditions are retrievable regardless of whether these conditions are
reported or not. GR-474-CORE defines a standing condition as follows: A
standing condition is a state of the NE that can be determined by inspection (e.g.,
examining a light display) or by interrogating the NE (e.g., sending a request for
status information through an OS).

A user can define and modify the severity designated to a particular condition by
configuring a specified alarm severity.
The following are the three levels of severity provisioning in the system.

Each condition type in the system has a factory default severity.

Each condition type in the system has a provisionable, system-wide factory


override severity with a higher priority than the factory default for the condition
type.

Each specific entity (AID) in the system has a provisionable severity with a higher
priority than the factory override or factory default for the condition type.

The system-wide factory override severity and specific entity severity are provisionable
via CLI, TL1, and SNMP.
Effect on service declaration

The NE supports the capability of reporting Service Affecting (SA) alarms and
Non-Service Affecting (NSA) alarms. In general, failures impacting any traffic are
Service Affecting when no protection exists or when protection is not operational, and
the alarms impacting no traffic are Non-Service Affecting.
Typically, NSA alarms have a default severity of Minor or below, and SA alarms have
a default severity of Major or Critical. The conditions report and retrieval processing
include the alarm effect on service parameter (SA/NSA).
Changing the alarm severity while some conditions on the facility are present might
not impact the exiting conditions until they clear and get declared again.
For purposes of generating alarm and event reports, time-hysteresis filtering is applied
to all signal conditions as described in GR-253. A condition must be present
continuously for 2.5 seconds before an alarm report is generated, and it must be absent
for 10 seconds before a CLEAR is generated. Some OTS and OCH layer transmission
conditions that are based on analog power monitoring are integrated over longer time
periods to avoid reporting network transient events.
Reported facility conditions correctly identify the underlying equipment source of the
problem. That is, the bay-shelf-slot part of the facility ID refers to the equipment on
which the fault exists.
Reports of alarms and conditions originating from facilities on non-failed equipment as
a result of secondary facility effects are suppressed.

Audible alarm indications

The NE provides audible alarm dry contacts and alarm cut-off capability per GR-833.
The alarm cut-off function (OPR-ACO) removes the signal from the dry contacts, but
it does not change the internal state of the NE, nor affect any of the visual indicators.
The NE provides a visual alarm summary display on the user panel via one LED for
each alarm severity (see LED).

Performance monitoring
General performance monitoring (PM) processing

Performance Monitoring processing in the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 provides the


following functions.

Monitors and accumulates digital and analog parameters pertinent to a specific


physical or logical access point (see further detailed description of monitoring types
on specific Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 NE entities)
Stores and manages history accumulation data (up to thirty-three 15-minute and
seven 1-day accumulation registers can be stored)
Validation and threshold crossing processing

Manages threshold values through profile assignment to individual port entities

Free-running counters for all monitored points

Performance Monitoring functions are performed on physical and logical points within
the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 NE representing the boundary with other NEs or an
external system. A user can define and monitor Quality Of Service at individual points
in which local NE interacts with other network entities.
Refer to Figure 5-1, Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 PM points (p. 5-6) for an
illustration of performance monitoring points.

Whereas digital monitoring types provide progressive accumulation of monitored


performance event counts, analog monitoring types provide watermark points (high and
low watermarks), as well as average value of analog monitored parameter over an
accumulation period.
In addition to physical and logical (OCh) facility-related PM support, the
Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 NE supports monitoring of the equipment controller (EC)
processing use of resources.
The controller card provides monitoring as well as 15-minute and 1-day register
accumulation and provides storage of the following resource utilization statistics.

Average CPU use

Peak Heap use


Peak Memory Pool use

Threshold crossing alert management

Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 provides users with the ability to configure and manage
threshold crossing alert message generation for every PM monitoring entity. Designated
threshold for the monitored type is considered crossed when the value in the current
register is equal to or exceeds the value in the corresponding threshold register.
Threshold Crossing Alert (TCA) occurrence is reported via REPT^EVT messages or
SNMP traps upon recognition of the threshold crossings. A TCA is considered a
transient condition (implicitly cleared at the end of associated accumulation period).
Users can manage threshold values (change the threshold or disable threshold alert
generation) by modifying threshold attributes in the TCA profile assigned to an
Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 NE port entity.
Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 supports the following TCA profile types.

OC_N (SONET port section monitoring)

STM_N (SDH port section monitoring)


DW (OTU2 and ODU2 layer PM parameters)

ETH (Ethernet group, RMON statistic)

Nine instances of each profile type are supported. Profile instance 0 is used to disable
TCAs for the group. Profiles with index 7 contain factory default data with 15-minute
defaults preloaded, while profile with index 8 contains 1-day defaults preloaded.
Instances 1-6 are initialized with all 0 values and can be customized by user.
Each port can be assigned one or more profile instances. (Only one instance of each
profile type can be assigned to a port/tmper combination. That is, one instance of a
profile type can be assigned to a port A, 15-minute time period, while another instance
of the same profile type can be assigned to same port A but 1-day time period.)
When a port is created, the system automatically assigns profile instance #7 (preloaded
with 15-minute defaults) and #8 (preloaded with 1-day defaults).
Analog parameter TCAs

Performance parameter thresholds are set to show degraded performance. A threshold is


the mechanism for generating a defined notification resulting from changes in
parameter values.
Two types of thresholds exist.

Counter-threshold: associated with digital parameters

Gauge-threshold: associated with analog parameters

Unlike the value of a counter parameter that can only increase in value unless its
value is reset, the value for a gauge parameter can increase or decrease continuously
over time. Analog parameters have two user configurable thresholds (notifyHigh and
notifyLow) as a high threshold and low threshold associated with the parameter,
respectively
These threshold values are checked against the appropriate tidemark low and tidemark
high monitors. TCA notification is raised when tidemark high exceeds the defined
notifyHigh value for the parameter and time period or when tidemark low drops below
the defined notifyLow value for the parameter and time period.
Refer to Figure 5-2, Analog parameter TCAs (p. 5-9) for an illustration.

Figure 5-2 Analog parameter TCAs

Note that term exceed used with tidemark low/high monitored parameters indicates that
tidemark high value is greater than the corresponding threshold or that tidemark low is
below the corresponding threshold.
For OT physical layer OPR, OPT parameters TCA profiles contain values for positive
and negative deviation relative to established baselined analog value for that port.
Baselining of OPR/OPT values can be established automatically (at the point the input
signal is applied to the port initially or laser initially enabled) or manually by user
command.
Baselining applies to OT and OSC ports but does not apply to OCh and OTS ports.
OCh and OTS port thresholds are established during the commissioning phase.

Automatic power adjustments


Automated optical power management system

Automated optical power management is a software system that controls variable


optical attenuators in the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 to control the optical power
levels on a per-wavelength basis.
Several sub-systems comprise the power management system:

Stored target powers and amplifier gain ranges

Pack level control loops

Add wavelength power adjustment loop


Amplifier gain and setpoint adjustment functions

When a system is commissioned, data is transferred to the network elements (NEs) in


the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32. This data includes the target powers per-channel at
key locations in the NE and the expected minimum and maximum gains for amplifiers
in the system. The latter provides operational bounds on the gains of the amplifiers in
the system and ties their gain ranges to the planning of the network.
When an amplifier gain must be set outside the planned range, a potential optical
signal-to-noise ration (OSNR) problem is indicated within the network: The OSNR of
lightpaths travelling through this amplifier can experience more OSNR degradation
than planned. The planning data can be transferred to the NEs either manually by
entering the data using one of the user interfaces or by using the commissioning tools
provided by the Photonic Manager to automatically provision the planning data from a
commissioning file produced by the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 Engineering and
Planning Tool (EPT).
Figure 5-3, EPT parameters for a TOADM node (p. 5-21) illustrates an automatically
managed tunable optical add-drop multiplexer (TOADM) node with the power targets
and gain ranges from the planning tool labeled. The small green circles indicate
Wavelength Tracker monitoring points that are used to retrieve power readings used by
the power management system.

Pack levels

Pack level loops maintain target output powers that have been calculated and set by the
power management system. There are two types of pack level control loop.
In one version, the decoded Wavelength Tracker power levels at the output ports of the
wavelength selective switch pack (CWR8) are used to continuously update per channel
VOA settings to adjust the power level per wavelength to a target output power. The
VOAs are adjusted using an algorithm that guarantees stability of the system when
many CWR8 packs are traversed by a lightpath.
In another version, the VOA used to control the output power of a wavelength at the
point it is added onto the system and is continuously adjusted using the power reading
available on the pack where the VOA is located. In both cases, the target per
wavelength power that the loops try to achieve has been calculated by the power
management system to achieve the power levels designed for the system.
Figure 5-4, Per-channel power control points within a TOADM node (p. 5-22)
illustrates the location of some local pack target points for a TOADM network element.

Figure 5-4 Per-channel power control points within a TOADM node

The add wavelength power adjustment loop periodically checks the output power of
added wavelengths at their egress point onto the optical fiber at the node at which they
are launched. It then adjusts the setpoints that control the add path wavelengths to
achieve the target powers at the output of the node. These adjustments compensate for
changes in output power at the egress point of the node as wavelengths are added and
dropped from the system and for minor changes in loss in the add path components.
Adjustment functions

Two functions are provided that adjust amplifier gains, recalculate setpoints, and reset
Wavelength Tracker expected powers.
Ingress adjustment

The ingress adjustment function adjusts the gain of the optical amplifier on an
incoming line [referred to as the ingress line driver (ingress LD)] to compensate the
loss from the preceding nodes egress point to the output of the ingress LD. Target
powers at both the upstream node and the local node define the required loss.

Egress adjustment

The egress adjustment function adjusts the gain of the optional optical amplifier on an
outgoing line [referred to as the egress line driver (egress LD)] to compensate the loss
of the network elements through path components between the ingress LD output and
the egress line output. The target power at the egress line and the ingress LD define
the target loss. Additionally, the egress adjustment function recalculates the drop path
CWR8 setpoints for the through channels and the output power required for the add
path CWR8 to coincide with the egress amplifiers gain and the egress line target
output power.
The adjustment of the egress amplifier gain is done in such a way that the minimum
required gain is selected to compensate the nodes through loss. This minimizes the
amplifiers contribution to the transmitted signals OSNR degradation. If there is no
egress amplifier the egress adjustment function only adjusts the setpoints to meet the
egress lines target output power. After an adjustment function completes the
Wavelength Tracker monitoring point expected powers are updated to reflect the
changes in setpoints and gains within the node
The power management systems adjustments are coordinated to prevent control loops
from changing VOA settings too far from estimated required values. Inter-node
communication provides a way to monitor for large loss changes in the network to
prevent downstream network elements from compensating loss that should be
compensated by a more upstream network element. The adjustments to setpoints and
gains are made in small controlled steps to prevent any impact on other wavelengths or
other parts of the system
Automatic power management features

The automatic power management system enables the following features.

Automatic compensation for loss changes in the network up to a limit, (after which
the adjustment functions must be used by the user to adjust optical amplifier gains
or setpoints).

Automated service turn-up.

One-touch commissioning using the 1354RM-PhMPhotonic Manager.


System power re-balancing using the 1354RM-PhM Photonic Manager.

Automated network equipment upgrade tools using the 1354RM-PhM Photonic


Manager.

Alarms indicate when network events require the user to invoke a power
adjustment function. Alarms also indicate if adjustments have failed and when a
local pack control loop cannot maintain a target power.

Finally, automated power management can be disabled on a line-by-line basis to allow


mixing static OADM network elements with re-configurable OADM network elements
within the same system. The ability to disable automated power management and use
manual power management also allows Alcatel-Lucent to be flexible when solving
network problems presented by the customer.

Wavelength Tracker monitoring capability


Overview

The key differentiating characteristic that separates open photonic layer services from
more primitive services offered by passive WDM equipment is that open photonic
layer services provide management capabilities through the Wavelength Tracker
monitoring capability feature. Wavelength Tracker monitoring capability allows a
network operator to remotely trace a lightpath and to monitor power levels without
disrupting service. This is invaluable during installation, commissioning, and ongoing
management of the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 network.
Wavelength Tracker monitoring capability is more than an integrated power
measurement feature. It has the capability to uniquely identify and track each
wavelength throughout the network. This is especially valuable in WDM and OADM
networks where multiple instances of the same wavelength may occur.
Wavelength Tracker monitoring capability is a technique to tag a wavelength so that
the wavelength can be traced through the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 network.
Wavelength Tracker also allows the optical power levels to be measured along the
path.
WaveKeys

To make use of the Wavelength Tracker monitoring capability, certain optical


components are equipped with detection points that can detect the presence of
Wavelength Tracker keys and measure the optical power of each wavelength. Each
Wavelength Tracker detection point can be programmed to expect particular channels
and raise an alarm if the channels are not detected. The Wavelength Tracker detection
points can also measure the optical power of individual wavelength services. Alarms
can be raised if the optical power is too high or too low. The alarm threshold is
provisionable by the user.
The WaveKeys are detected on the following cards.

LD - LINE IN and SIG OUT

CWR - SIG IN and THRU OUT and Add VOA out

the WebUI via a personal computer (using a CD-ROM that contains the system
software load provided with the system).
Installation

The software installation service provides the control mechanism for nodal, shelf, and
line-card level software downloads, installations, upgrades, and backouts. The service
performs an audit of those assets that require upgrade, and uses the software load
transfer mechanism to retrieve the software from a target server. Card software
installations affect only the specified card, whereas nodal software installations affect
the entire network element.

Upgrades

Upgrades and backouts are treated as software installations. The software upgrade
feature consists of software load distribution, card restarts, and activity switches. The
feature performs the upgrade with minimal data loss and card down time. Mechanisms
are provided to minimize traffic over the control network when multiple cards require
upgrade to the same revision level. Future releases will enable control of line card
upgrades that can be coordinated with maintenance and/or protection switching
activities.
Backouts

The upgrade feature also offers the ability to back out of an upgrade that is in
progress. When a nodal installation completes, all cards are running the target load
with the exception of inactive mate cards. The inactive mate cards retain the previous
load. You can then either issue a backout command or commit the network element to
the newly installed load. The backout reverts to the original load, but in this case you
must restore the database from backup. Once committed, the network element installs
the target load on all inactive mate cards, and the inactive master control cards
database is synchronized to the active master control card. A backout causes the
inactive mate cards to become active and reinstalls the previous load on the previously
active card. For complete installation information, refer to the Alcatel-Lucent 1830
PSS-32 Installation and System Turn-Up Guide.

Alcatel-Lucent Engineering and Planning Tool


Overview

The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS Engineering Tool (EPT) is used to design the networks
composed of Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 and 1830 PSS-1 GBE network elements
(NEs). It supports initial designs as well as incremental additions to existing networks.
Through its interface with the Network Management System, design information
produced by the EPT is downloaded to individual NEs to facilitate system turn-up.
The EPT is a stand-alone Windows application with a Graphical User Interface
(GUI) capable of capturing network requirements and synthesizing network solutions.
A built-in design optimizer produces the lowest cost network requirements.
Given the complex nature of capturing network requirements, the EPT is capable of
operating in the following ways:

Fully manual design synthesis


Phased design that enforces in-service upgrades from one phase to another

What-if scenarios to quantify how future traffic patterns operate in the design

The EPT examines thousands of network alternatives, taking into account various
optical parameters including fiber attenuation, end- of-life attenuation margin,
connector losses, chromatic dispersion, and polarization mode dispersion. It calculates
transmission characteristics including typical and worst-case optical signal-to-noise
ratio (OSNR), residual dispersion, and non-linear phase shift. The EPT also takes into
account optical penalties due to PMD, PDL, filter penalty, cross talk penalty, and
non-linear transmission penalty.
The EPT is able to model Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32, Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-1
GBE, and combinations of Alcatel-Lucent PSS-32/PSS-1 GBE networks. Tunable
OADM (TOADM), fixed OADM (FOADM), and CWDM configurations can be
modeled in the EPT according to the NE configuration capabilities. Maximum channel
counts can be specified in the EPT to accommodate cost/performance trade-offs as
well.
The EPT produces a set of reports that can be used to order, install, and configure
Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS networks. These reports include Bill of Materials, Amplifier
and DCM Placement, Optical Transmission Characteristics, Card Placement (both
tabular and graphical Bay Layout), Fiber Characteristics, and general network
assumptions. The EPT also produces a design file for the Network Management
System that works in conjunction with WaveTracker to define alarm thresholds
specific to each design for preventive network maintenance.

Power and grounding


Overview

Each shelf has independent power connections and is powered independently from the
other shelves in the network element. Power is provided to the front of the shelf via
two power filter modules: one on the right side of the shelf and one on the left. The
shelf is designed for redundant power it will fully operate with only one power
filter/supply although two are always recommended.
Each shelf can be grounded two separate ways. Grounding can be accomplished
through the screws that mount the shelf to the rack or through specific grounding lugs.
The grounding lug connection point is located in the bottom right corner of the shelf.

Power redundancy and reliability

Shelf power distribution is fully redundant, with two circuits, A and B, able to supply
power to the shelf. Redundant power feeds (A and B) are connected to the power
modules in slots 19 and 36. Power is fed into the shelf over two redundant power rails
(A and B) that feed all components in the shelf.
Power filters are available in 30A, 50A, and 70A capacity.
Power sources

Shelves operates fault-free in a voltage range of -40V DC to -72V DC (-48V DC or


-60 V DC nominal). You can supply power from standard -48V DC or -60 V DC
battery feeds, as is typical in a central office, or you can use an AC rectifier with
battery backup.
DC power system requirements

The DC source for the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 must meet the requirements of a
safety extra low voltage (SELV) source.
In order to avoid oscillation in the system, maximum source inductance to the DC
power source is 15uH, with a nominal value of 8uH, assuming a maximum loop of
100 meters (50 m feed and 50 m return).

Battery feeds

In a typical deployment, the shelves are installed in a central office (CO) or similar
environment that is equipped with its own power distribution center. In this
environment, power is distributed to the shelves from standard 48V DC battery feeds
that are equipped with fuses or circuit breakers.
AC rectifier feeds

In remote or controlled vault deployments, where the primary power source is an AC


utility line, a rectifier is required to convert the power from AC to DC, with a nominal
output voltage of 48 V DC. The rectifier must be capable of generating output power
that equals or exceeds the maximum input DC power requirement from the system,
plus 20 percent for battery charging.
To ensure that the shelf has a reliable power source, it is recommended that the
rectifier be N + 1 redundant and have battery backup. The power system in this
environment typically consists of a power rack to hold the rectifier, batteries, and
power distribution panel, and cable feeds that provide DC power to each shelf.
Power monitoring

The shelf controller monitors the status of the A and/or B direct current (DC) input
voltages. When a battery voltage decreases below 45V 1.5V, the Low Battery Voltage
alarm for that feed is triggered. When both power feeds are present and the A and B
Low Battery Alarms are raised, traffic may soon become interrupted. When both the A
and B power modules agree that their input power feeds have decreased below 40.5V
1.5V, they will turn power OFF to all circuit cards on the shelf, with the exception
of the EC and the SFC/Dx filters.

Operating environment
Introduction

Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 shelves are designed to operate in environmentally


controlled locations or enclosures, such as central offices, commercial buildings, and
controlled environment vaults. The environmental operational limits for the
Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 are listed in Table 6-2, Ambient temperature and
humidity limits (p. 6-6).

2.

Short-term operation is a period of not more than 96 consecutive hours and a total of not
more than 15 days in one year. (This refers to a total of 360 hours in any given year, but
no more than 15 occurrences during that one-year period.)

Cooling
Introduction

The shelf is cooled by a fan that houses three variable-speed fans. The fan tray is
hot-swappable in the event of a failure in the unit. If a single fan fails, the remaining
two fans will increase speed to compensate, allowing for the fan tray to be replaced
within a reasonable maintenance window. Note that the time frame to replace a failed
fan is 24 hours.
The fan tray is inserted near the top of the shelf, as illustrated in Figure 6-2, Airflow
through shelf (p. 6-8). The fan draws cool air up through the bottom of the shelf and
exhausts the heated air through the top of the shelf. Incoming air is filtered through a
replaceable air filter.

Fan operation

In order to ensure the quietest possible operation, the speed of the fans is adjusted
automatically. Fan speed is increased to maximum in case of fault or fan tray removal.
Air filtering

The air is drawn through an air filter as it enters the bottom of the shelf. The air filter
is located below the fiber tray and is replaceable from the front of the shelf.

Technicians, installers, maintenance engineers, technical support personnel, product
evaluators, and anyone who has a working knowledge of the products involved and is
interested in a hands-on workshop covering advanced troubleshooting issues.
Description:
The same engineers that resolve the Assistance Requests (ARs) have developed a series
of advanced, hands-on workshops that can be customized to the unique network
applications. Individual product modules will provide the knowledge and skills to
perform troubleshooting and fault-finding activities at the equipment site or from a
remote operations center. There are lab exercises using Alcatel-Lucent network
management systems to simulate real-world provisioning and troubleshooting scenarios.
In addition, general technology modules will round out the understanding of the
network element (NE) troubleshooting performed.
Objectives
Each module has specific objectives. Some overall series objectives are listed below:

Understand advanced network element security features.

Set up and understand interworking between Alcatel-Lucent network elements


Perform provisioning operations and remote trouble-shooting using CIT, EMS, and
TL1 interfaces.

Design and development


Overview

During the design and development stage, built-in reliability is ensured through the
following activities: reliability predictions, qualification and selection of components,
definition of quality assurance audit standards, and prototyping of critical areas.

Manufacturing and field deployment


Overview

During manufacturing and field deployment, techniques such as environmental stress


testing, production quality audits, field-return tracking, failure-mode analysis, feedback,
and corrective-action further enhance the ongoing reliability improvement efforts.

Failure rates
Overview

This section provides reliability figures of Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 orderable items
with non-zero failure rates per Telcordia SR-332 [1], Method I-D. For reliability
figures that pertain to the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-1 GBE, refer to the Alcatel-Lucent
1830 PSS-1 GBE Edge Device User Guide.
Failure rates are expressed in FITs, where one FIT is one failure in 109 operating
hours. The mean time to failure (MTTF) in years is given by the following expression:

where is the steady-state failure rate per SR-332, Issue 2; Method I-D. The mean
time between failures (MTBF) is defined by the following expression:

where MTTR is the mean time to repair. Because MTTF >> MTTR, MTBF is very
close to MTTF. Therefore, the two terms MTBF and MTTF are often used
interchangeably.

Sparing Tables for Field-Replaceable Units (FRUs)


Overview

The circuit pack sparing levels in Figure 8-1, Recommended Alcatel-Lucent 1830
PSS-32 circuit pack and unit sparing levels: 30-day lead time (p. 8-15), Figure 8-2,
Recommended Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 circuit pack and unit sparing levels:
60-day lead time (p. 8-17), and Figure 8-3, Recommended Alcatel-Lucent 1830
PSS-32 circuit pack and unit sparing levels: 90-day lead time (p. 8-18) were
determined using the methodology in Bell Communications Research SR-TSY-000385
[2].
In the context of sparing calculations, lead time is the time to replenish the sparing
pool with a new or repaired pack. The sparing levels are based on circuit pack
steady-state FIT rates given in Table 8-1, Failure rates and MTBFs for Alcatel-Lucent
1830 PSS-32 (p. 8-3), with a service continuity objective of 99.999 percent.

pack or unit is known to fail in service to when a spare circuit pack or unit is placed
in service to replace the failed item. It is the customers responsibility to maintain the
recommended sparing levels at all times.
The need to maintain recommended sparing levels implies that a replacement spare
must be ordered immediately upon the detection of a pack failing in service. In
addition, lead times and FIT rates specified here are assumptions for purposes of
maintaining adequate sparing levels only, and they do not change the terms of any
applicable contracts, including ordering terms, lead times, delivery provisions, or any
applicable warranties that may be in effect.

Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 shelf


Overview

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

Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 shelf


Overview
Installation environment

The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 shelf is designed to operate in environmentally


controlled locations or enclosures, such as central offices, commercial buildings, and
controlled environment vaults; 1830 PSS 32 is not intended for outdoor deployments.
The 1830 PSS 32 is compatible with standard equipment frames and overhead
rack/raised floor office practices commonly found in such environments.
The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 shelf is mounted in a standard 19-inch, 23-inch, or
ETSI rack. Three shelves can be mounted in a standard 7-foot rack. Provided adequate
clearance, the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 shelf can be installed in any environment
that is able to house a standard rack.
The fan trays that are part of the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 shelf common equipment
provide all of the cooling for the shelf. In order for the fan trays to provide adequate
shelf cooling, however, the following conditions must be met:

Number to ensure long term reliability of the shelf, the ambient temperature of the
facility should not exceed 40C. In the event that the ambient temperature does
exceed 40C, the shelf can operate at temperature up to 50C for short periods of
time. These periods are defined in Telcordia GR-63-CORE as lasting no more than
a total of 96 consecutive hours, for not more than 15 days in a year.

The facility must provide adequate ventilation for the shelf and remain free of
obstructions that may affect fan efficiency. Since air is drawn in from the front of
the shelf, the shelves cannot be installed in frames with doors, since the doors may
impede air flow into the shelf.

Dimensions and weight

The dimensions and weight for the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32 shelf are 621.8 mm
(Height) X 438.9 mm (Width) X 289.5 mm (Depth). See Figure 9-1, Alcatel-Lucent
1830 PSS-32 Shelf Dimensions (p. 9-3).

attenuation

The decrease in signal strength along a fiber optic waveguide caused by absorption and
scattering. Attenuation is usually expressed as dB/km.
attenuator

A passive device that reduces the amplitude of a signal without distorting the waveform.
automatic power shutdown (APSD)

A technique (procedure) to automatically shutdown the output power of optical


amplifiers to avoid exposure to hazardous levels.
automatic protection switching (APS)

A network survivability method in which traffic is automatically switched to a protection


route when a failure is detected on a working route.
autonomous message

Message sent by the system to the CIT to notify it of any state change in the system.
Autonomous messages are not responses to a CIT-initiated command. Examples of these
messages include alarms, events (non-alarmed condition), notification of connections that
are added or deleted, and changes in the system database.
avalanche photodiode (APD)

A photodetector that can be regarded as the semiconductor analog to photomultipliers.


By applying a high reverse bias voltage (typically 100-200 V in silicon), an APD shows
an internal current gain effect (around 100) due to impact ionization (avalanche effect).

bidirectional line switched ring (BLSR)

A survivable SONET transport architecture that protects against cable cuts and node
failures by providing duplicate, geographically diverse paths for each service. Network
elements are interconnected in a closed fiber loop (four fibers for a four-fiber BLSR
architecture or two fibers for a two-fiber BLSR). A service can reach its destination by
traveling in either direction around the ring. Exactly one-half of the bandwidth available
between adjacent nodes in each direction is used for working traffic, with the remaining
bandwidth available for protection.
bit error rate (BER)

BER measures how accurately a bitstream is transmitted through a system. It measures


how many bits are received in error, compared to how many bits are sent.

channel optical filter (COF)

COF cards facilitate the WaveKey encoding function, employed at service endpoints.
chromatic dispersion

The effect describing the velocity dependence of light travelling through a medium,
depending on its wavelength. For optical telecommunication signals, this effect causes
the light pulses to spread out and the resulting distortion in pulse shape degrades the
signal quality.

cladding

Material that surrounds the core of an optical fiber that has a lower index of refraction
compared to that of the core. The lower index of refraction causes the transmitted light
to travel down the core.
classless inter-domain routing (CIDR)

Routing for networks of variable sizes, defined by a variable-length subnet mask. By


using subnet mask values other than 255 (all ones) for a particular octet, the bits in the
network address that are not covered by the subnet mask can be sized to create
networks that do not conform to the original Class A, B, and C subnet definitions.

unidirectional path-switched ring (UPSR)

A survivable, closed loop transport architecture that protects against cable cuts and node
failures by providing duplicate, geographically diverse paths for each service. Adjacent
nodes on the ring are interconnected using a single pair of optical fibers. One fiber
transports traffic in one direction (for example, clockwise), while the second fiber
transports traffic in the opposite direction (for example, counterclockwise). In a UPSR,
the source node bridges its outgoing traffic along opposite directions around the ring (on
paths provided by SONET synchronous transport channels). In contrast to BLSR, a
UPSR:

is path-specific as opposed to line specific

does not allow extra traffic (because traffic is bridged)

requires less coordination from source to destination (because the destination network
element can make all its decisions without involving the source)

UPSR

user datagram protocol (UDP)

A minimal, datagram-oriented, transport network protocol above the IP network layer


that does not guarantee data ordering or delivery. Because it is datagram-oriented, each
send operation by the application results in the transmission of a single IP datagram.
This contrasts with the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) which is byte stream
oriented and guarantees the delivery and ordering of the bytes sent. Because it is a byte
stream oriented, a single send operation may result in a no IP datagrams (buffering), a
single IP datagram, or multiple IP datagrams.
