NTP- C20 Set Up Name, Date, Time, and Contact Information
Step 2
Click the Provisioning > General tabs.
Step 3
Enter the following information in the fields listed:
•
Node Name/TID—Type a name for the node. For TL1 compliance, names must begin with an alpha
character and have no more than 20 alphanumeric characters.
•
Contact—Type the name of the node contact person and the contact phone number up to
255 characters (optional).
•
Latitude—Enter the node latitude: N (North) or S (South), degrees, and minutes (optional).
•
Longitude—Enter the node longitude: E (East) or W (West), degrees, and minutes (optional).
Tip
You can also position nodes manually on the network view map. Press Ctrl while you drag and
drop the node icon to the desired location. To create a network map that is visible to all
ONS 15310-CL and ONS 15310-MA users, complete the “NTP-C35 Create a Logical Network
Map” procedure on page 5-26. This procedure requires a Superuser security level.
Note
The latitude and longitude values only indicate the geographical position of the nodes in the
actual network and not the CTC node position.
•
Description—Type a description of the node. The description can have a maximum of
255 characters.
•
Use NTP/SNTP Server—When checked, CTC uses a Network Time Protocol (NTP) or Simple
Network Time Protocol (SNTP) server to set the date and time of the node.
If you do not use an SNTP or NTP server, complete the Date and Time fields. The ONS 15310-CL
or ONS 15310-MA will use these fields for alarm dates and times. By default, CTC displays all
alarms in the CTC computer time zone for consistency. To change the display to the node time zone,
complete the “DLP-C75 Display Alarms and Conditions Using Time Zone” task on page 17-93.
Note
Using an NTP or SNTP server ensures that all ONS 15310-CL or ONS 15310-MA network
nodes use the same date and time reference. The server synchronizes the node’s time after
power outages or software upgrades.
If you check the Use NTP/SNTP Server check box, type the IP address of one of the following:
– An NTP/SNTP server connected to the ONS 15310-CL or ONS 15310-MA
– Another ONS 15310-CL or ONS 15310-MA with NTP/SNTP enabled that is connected to the
ONS 15310-CL or ONS 15310-MA
If you check the gateway network element (GNE) for the ONS 15310-CL or ONS 15310-MA proxy
server, end ONS 15310 network elements (ENEs) must reference the gateway ONS 15310 for
NTP/SNTP timing. For more information about the proxy server feature, refer to the “Management
Network Connectivity” chapter of the Cisco ONS 15310-CL and Cisco ONS 15310-MA Reference
Manual.
Caution
If you reference another ONS 15310-CL or ONS 15310-MA for the NTP/SNTP server, make sure the
second ONS 15310 references an NTP/SNTP server and not the first ONS 15310 (that is, do not create
an NTP/SNTP timing loop by having two ONS 15310s reference each other).

Step 1
Complete the “DLP-C29 Log into CTC” task on page 17-44 at the node where you want to create the
protection group. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.
Step 2
Verify that pluggable port modules (PPM) are provisioned for the same port and port rate on the
15310-CL-CTX where you will create the optical protection group.
Note
PPMs are referred to as small-form factor pluggables (SFPs) in the hardware chapters.
You can use either of the following methods:
•
In node view, move your mouse over the 15310-CL-CTX client port. If a PPM is provisioned, two
dots appear in the port graphic, and the port and PPM port and rate appear when you move the mouse
over the port.
•
Display the 15310-CL-CTX in card view. Click the Provisioning > Pluggable Port Module tabs.
Verify that a PPM is provisioned in the Pluggable Port Module area, and the port type and rate is
provisioned for it in the Selected PPM area.
The PPM port and port rate must be the same for both 15310-CTX-CL ports. As necessary, complete the
“NTP-C130 Manage Pluggable Port Modules” procedure on page 10-3 to make PPM changes.
Step 3
From node view, click the Provisioning > Protection tabs.
Step 4
In the Protection Groups area, click Create.
Step 5
In the Create Protection Group dialog box, enter the following:
•
Name—Type a name for the protection group. The name can have up to 32 alphanumeric (a-z, A-Z,
0-9) characters. Special characters are permitted. For TL1 compatibility, do not use question marks
(?), backslash (\), or double quote (“) characters.
•
Type—Choose 1+1 from the drop-down list.
•
Protect Port—Choose the protect port from the drop-down list. The menu displays the available
optical ports on the 15310-CL-CTX.
•
After you choose the protect port, a list of ports available for protection is displayed under Available
Ports.
Step 6
From the Available Ports list, choose the port that will be protected by the port you selected in the Protect
Port field. Click the top arrow button to move the port to the Working Ports list.
Step 7

Step 8
•
Bidirectional switching—Check this check box if you want both Tx and Rx signals to switch to the
protect port when a failure occurs to one signal. Leave it unchecked if you want only the failed signal
to switch to the protect port.
•
Revertive—Check this check box if you want traffic to revert to the working port after failure
conditions stay corrected for the amount of time entered in the Reversion Time field.
•
Reversion time—If Revertive is checked, choose the reversion time from the drop-down list. The
range is 0.5 to 12.0 minutes. The default is 5.0 minutes. Reversion time is the amount of time that
will elapse before the traffic reverts to the working port. The reversion timer starts after conditions
causing the switch are cleared.
Click OK.
Stop. You have completed this procedure.

Table 4-1
Protection Types
Type
Cards
1:1
DS1-28/DS3-EC1-3 Pairs one working card with one protect card. 1:1 protection
groups are created automatically and do not require
DS1-84/DS3-EC1-3
provisioning. There are two sets of paired expansion slots for the
electrical cards. Card slots 1 and 2 are a pair and slots 5 and 6 are
a pair. The pairing is due to the configuration of the backplane
connectors. When two electrical cards are plugged into either of
the card slot pairs, a 1:1 protection group is automatically
created for the two cards, if possible. If a protection group
cannot be created, one of the cards goes into the Mismatched
Equipment Alarm (MEA) state, because the 15310-MA cannot
support two unprotected electrical cards in the 1–2 or 5–6 card
slot pairs. The 1:1 automatic protection group is created when
the second electrical card of a pair is either plugged in or is
preprovisioned. All ONS 15310-MA electrical cards, by default,
are made part of a 1:1 protection group. The 1:1 protection group
cannot be deleted. For more information, refer to the “Card
Protection” chapter and the card reference material specific to
the card in the Cisco ONS 15310-CL and Cisco ONS 15310-MA
Reference Manual.
1+1
CTX2500
Pairs a working OC-N port with a protect OC-N port. 1+1
protection can be created between any of the four total optical
ports in any combination. For example, 1+1 can created between
two ports on the same CTX 2500 card, or it can be created
between port 2-1 on one CTX2500 and port 1-1 on the second
CTX 2500. You can create a maximum of two 1+1 protection
groups, one with the working port on slot 3 and one with the
working port on slot 4. The same card can have both working and
protect ports on it. 1+1 protection can be revertive or
nonrevertive, bidirectional or unidirectional.
Optimized
1+1
CTX2500
Ports must be provisioned to SDH. Optimized 1+1 protection is
mainly used in networks that have linear 1+1 bidirectional
protection schemes. Optimized 1+1 is a line-level protection
scheme that includes two lines, working and protect. One of the
two lines assumes the role of the primary channel, from which
traffic gets selected, and the other port assumes the role of the
secondary channel, which protects the primary channel. Traffic
switches from the primary to the secondary channel based on
either an external switching command or line conditions. After
the line condition or the external switching command that was
responsible for a switch clears, the roles of the two sides are
reversed.
Unprotected
Any
Unprotected cards can cause signal loss if a card fails or incurs
a signal error. Unprotected is the default for Ethernet cards and
for the first electrical card plugged into any of the IO slots. For
more information about electrical cards, see 1:1 in this table.
