FC_MR-4 Card Description
Class 1 (21 CFR 1040.10, 1040.11, and IEC 60825-1 2001-01) laser products. Invisible laser radiation may
be emitted from the end of the unterminated fiber cable or connector. Do not stare into the beam or
view directly with optical instruments. Viewing the laser output with certain optical instruments (for

example, eye loupes, magnifiers, and microscopes) within a distance of 100 mm may pose an eye
hazard. Use of controls or adjustments, or performance of procedures other than those specified may
result in hazardous radiation exposure.
The FC_MR-4 (Fibre Channel 4-port) card uses pluggable Gigabit Interface Converters (GBICs) to
transport non-SONET/SDH-framed, block-coded protocols over SONET/SDH in virtually concatenated
or contiguously concatenated payloads. The FC_MR-4 can transport Fibre Channel over SONET/SDH
using Fibre-Channel client interfaces and allows transport of one of the following at a time:
Two contiguously concatenated (CCAT) STS-24c/VC4-8c circuits
One STS-48c/VC4-16c CCAT
Two virtually concatenated (VCAT) circuits (STC3c-8V/VC4-8v) compliant with ITU-T G.7041
GFP-T and Telcordia GR-253-CORE
One STS-24c/VC4-8c CCAT and one STS-24c/VC4-8c VCAT
In Software Release 4.6, only two of the four ports can be active at one time.

FC_MR-4 Card Description
FC_MR-4 Card-Level Indicators
Table 0-1 describes the two card-level LEDs on the FC_MR-4 card.
Table 0-1
FC_MR-4 Card-Level Indicators
Card-Level Indicators
The red FAIL LED indicates that the card’s processor is not ready. Replace the
card if the red FAIL LED persists.
If the ACTV/STBY LED is green, the card is operational and ready to carry
FC_MR-4 Port-Level Indicators
Each FC_MR-4 port has a corresponding ACT/LNK LED. The ACT/LNK LED is solid green if the port
is available to carry traffic, is provisioned as in-service, and in the active mode. The ACT/LNK LED is
flashing green if the port is carrying traffic. The ACT/LNK LED is steady amber if the port is not enabled
and the link is connected, or if the port is enabled and the link is connected but there is a SONET
transport error. The ACT/LNK LED is unlit if there is no link.
You can find the status of the card ports using the LCD screen on the ONS 15454 fan-tray assembly. Use
the LCD to view the status of any port or card slot; the screen displays the number and severity of alarms
for a given port or slot. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide for a complete description
of the alarm messages.

Installation Procedures
Installation Procedures
Use this section if you are installing the FC_MR-4 card for the first time. After you become familiar with
ONS 15454 SONET/SDH card installation and boot up, use this section as a reference. For information
about fiber optic cable installation, see the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual, the Cisco ONS
15454 SDH Procedure Guide, the Cisco ONS 15454 Reference Manual, or the Cisco ONS 15454
Procedure Guide.
Hazardous voltage or energy may be present on the backplane when the system is operating. Use
caution when servicing.
Always use the supplied electrostatic discharge (ESD) wristband when working with an ONS 15454
SONET/SDH. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the lower right outside edge of the
shelf assembly and ensure the shelf assembly is properly grounded.
FC_MR-4 cards have electrical plugs that plug into electrical connectors on the shelf assembly
backplane. When the ejectors are fully closed, the card plugs into the shelf assembly backplane. Figure 2
shows general card installation. The example shows the installation in an ONS 15454. The procedure in
an ONS 15454 SDH is identical.

Procedure: Install the FC_MR-4 Card
Step 1
Open the card ejectors.
Step 2
Slide the card along the guide rails into the correct slot.
Step 3
Close the ejectors.
Procedure: Verify Turn Up of the FC_MR-4 Card
Follow the steps in this section to verify card turn up. If one or more of the Cisco Transport Controller
(CTC) software screen conditions according to this procedure are not met, reinstall the card. Replace the
unit if the faulty state persists.
Step 1
Verify that power is applied to the shelf assembly.
Step 2
Verify the LED activity:
The red FAIL LED turns on for 20 to 30 seconds. The ACT LED is amber for 3 to 5 seconds.
The red FAIL LED blinks for up to 2 minutes.
The FAIL and ACT LEDs blink once and turn off for 1 to 5 seconds.
The ACT LED turns on.
If the red FAIL LED does not turn on, check the power.
If you insert a card into a slot provisioned for a different card, all LEDs turn off.
Step 3
Verify that the ACT or ACT/STBY LED is on. The signal fail (SF) LED can persist until all card ports
connect to their far end counterparts and a signal is present.
Step 4
When you have displayed Cisco Transport Controller (CTC) on your workstation, verify that the card
appears in the correct slot on the CTC node view. See the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual, the
Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide, the Cisco ONS 15454 Reference Manual, or the Cisco ONS
15454 Procedure Guide.

TAC Case Priority Definitions
To ensure that all cases are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established case priority definitions.
Priority 1 (P1)—Your network is “down” or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You
and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.
Priority 2 (P2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your
business operation are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco
will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.
Priority 3 (P3)—Operational performance of your network is impaired, but most business operations
remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service
to satisfactory levels.
Priority 4 (P4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or
configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.
