The terms "Unidirectional Path Switched Ring" and "UPSR" may appear in Cisco literature. These terms
do not refer to using Cisco ONS 15xxx products in a unidirectional path switched ring configuration.
Rather, these terms, as well as "Path Protected Mesh Network" and "PPMN," refer generally to Cisco's
path protection feature, which may be used in any topological network configuration. Cisco does not
recommend using its path protection feature in any particular topological network configuration.

Step 2
In the Protection Group area, select the protection group with the port you want to switch.
In the Selected Group area, each port is identified as Working or Protect. Each port also has a status:
•
Active—The port is carrying traffic.
•
Standby—The port is not carrying traffic.
•
[MANUAL TO WORKING]—A Manual switch has moved traffic to the working port.
•
[MANUAL TO PROTECT]—A Manual switch has moved traffic to the protect port.
•
[FORCE TO WORKING]—A Force switch has moved traffic to the working port.
•
[FORCE TO PROTECT]—A Force switch has moved traffic to the protect port.
The normal status is for one port to be Working/Active and the other to be Protect/Standby.
Step 3
In the Selected Group area, select the port that you want to switch. For example, if you want to switch
traffic from the working port to the protect port, click the working port.

DLP- E101 Apply a Lock On in a 1+1 Group
If the Force switch is successful, CTC shows both ports as [FORCE TO PROTECT] (or
[FORCE TO WORKING]). This indication is shown whether or not the ONS 15600 system has been
able to move traffic from one port to the other.
If the Bidirectional switching check box is checked, both the near-end and far-end nodes switch to the
designated protection ports. For example, if the near-end node has a loss of signal (LOS), it switches to
the protection port and transmits a switch request to the far-end node to switch to the protection port also.
This ensures that both nodes process traffic from the same span.
If the Bidirectional switching check box is not selected, the near-end and far-end nodes switch
independently of each other. For example, if the near-end node has an LOS on its working port, it
switches to the protection port. If the far-end node does not have a LOS, traffic remains on the working
port.
If the Force switch is unsuccessful, clear the switch immediately using the “DLP-E167 Clear a Manual
or Force Switch in a 1+1 Protection Group” task on page 17-53, and then troubleshoot the problems
preventing the switch by referring to the Cisco ONS 15600 Troubleshooting Guide.

In the SDCC Terminations area, click Create.
Step 3
In the Create SDCC Terminations dialog box, click the ports where you want to create the DCC
termination. To select more than one port, press the Shift key or the Ctrl key.
Note
SDCC refers to the Section DCC, which is used for ONS 15600 DCC terminations. You can
provision the SONET Line DCCs and SDCCs (when not used as a DCC termination by the
ONS 15600) as DCC tunnels. See the “DLP-E105 Create a DCC Tunnel” task on page 17-5. You
can provision SDCC and Line DCC on the same port but it is not recommend. SDCC and Line
DCC are only needed on the same port during a software upgrade if the software version does
not support SDCC. Provision Line DCC termination on the port that already has SDCC see
“DLP-E189 Provision Line DCC Terminations” task on page 17-70. Delete SDCC provisioned
on that port, see “DLP-E198 Delete a Section DCC Termination” task on page 17-76. Enable
OSPF on the Line DCC termination if not enabled see “DLP-E197 Change a Line DCC
Termination” task on page 17-75.
Step 4
In the Port Admin State area, click Set to IS to put the port in service.
Step 5
Verify that the Disable OSPF on SDCC Link is unchecked.
Step 6
If the SDCC termination is to include a non-ONS node, check the Far End is Foreign check box. This
automatically sets the far-end node IP address to 0.0.0.0, which means that any address can be specified
by the far end. To change the default to a specific the IP address, see the “DLP-E196 Change a Section
DCC Termination” task on page 17-75.
Step 7
In the Layer 3 box, perform one of the following:
•
Check the IP box only—if the SDCC is between the ONS 15600 and another ONS node and only
ONS nodes reside on the network. The SDCC will use PPP (point-to-point protocol).
•
Check the IP and OSI boxes—if the SDCC is between the ONS 15600 and another ONS node and
third party NEs that use the Open System Interconnection (OSI) protocol stack are on the same
network. The SDCC will use PPP.
•
Check OSI box only—if the SDCC is between an ONS node and a third party NE that uses the OSI
protocol stack. The SDCC will use the LAP-D protocol.
Note
If OSI is checked and IP is not checked (LAP-D), no network connections will appear in
network view.

Step 8
If you checked OSI, complete the following steps. If you checked IP only, continue with Step 9.
a.
Click Next.
b.
Provision the following fields:
– Router—Choose the OSI router.
– ESH—Sets the End System Hello (ESH) propagation frequency. End system NEs transmit
ESHs to inform other ESs and ISs about the NSAPs it serves. The default is 10 seconds. The
range is 10 to 1000 seconds.
– ISH—Sets the Intermediate System Hello (ISH) PDU propagation frequency. Intermediate
system NEs send ISHs to other ESs and ISs to inform them about the IS NETs it serves. The
default is 10 seconds. The range is 10 to 1000 seconds.
– IIH—Sets the Intermediate System to Intermediate System Hello (IIH) PDU propagation
frequency. The IS-IS Hello PDUs establish and maintain adjacencies between ISs. The default
is 3 seconds. The range is 1 to 600 seconds.
– IS-IS Cost—Sets the cost for sending packets on the LAN subnet. The IS-IS protocol uses the
cost to calculate the shortest routing path. The default metric cost for LAN subnets is 20. It
normally should not be changed.
– Default button—If clicked, sets the default values for the Router, ESH, ISH, IIH, and IS-IS Cost
fields.
c.
If the OSI and IP boxes are checked, continue with Step 9. If only the OSI is checked, click Next
and provision the following fields:
– Mode
AITS—(Acknowledged Information Transfer Service) (Default) Does not exchange data until
a logical connection between two LAP-D users is established. This service provides reliable
data transfer, flow control, and error control mechanisms.
UITS—(Unacknowledged Information Transfer Service) Transfers frames containing user data
with no acknowledgement. The service does not guarantee that the data presented by one user
will be delivered to another user, nor does it inform the user if the delivery attempt fails. It does
not provide any flow control or error control mechanisms.
– Role—Set to the opposite of the mode of the NE at the other end of the SDCC.
– MTU (Maximum transmission unit)—Sets the maximum number of octets in a LAP-D
information frame. The range is 512 to 1500 octets. The default is 512. You normally should not
change it.
– T200— Sets the time between Set Asynchronous Balanced Mode (SABME) frame
retransmissions. The default is 0.2 seconds. The range is 0.2 to 20 seconds.
– T203—Provisions the maximum time between frame exchanges, that is, the trigger for
transmission of the LAP-D “keep-alive” Receive Ready (RR) frames. The default is 10 seconds.
The range is 4 to 120 seconds.

Step 2
Click the Provisioning > Line tabs.
Step 3
In the Admin State column for the target port, choose one of the following from the drop-down list:
•
IS—Puts the port in the In-Service and Normal (IS-NR) service state.
•
OOS, DSBLD—Puts the port in the Out-of-Service and Management, Disabled (OOS-MA,DSBLD)
service state. In this service state, traffic is not passed on the port until the service state is changed
to IS-NR; Out-of-Service and Management, Maintenance (OOS-MA,MT); or Out-of-Service and
Autonomous, Automatic In-Service (OOS-AU,AINS).
•
OOS, MT—Puts the port in the OOS-MA,MT service state. This service state does not interrupt
traffic flow and loopbacks are allowed, but alarm reporting is suppressed. Raised fault conditions,
whether or not their alarms are reported, can be retrieved on the CTC Conditions tab or by using the
TL1 RTRV-COND command. Use the OOS-MA,MT service state for testing or to suppress alarms
temporarily. Change to the IS-NR or OOS-AU,AINS service states when testing is complete.
•
IS, AINS—Puts the port in the OOS-AU,AINS service state. In this service state, alarm reporting is
suppressed, but traffic is carried and loopbacks are allowed. After the soak period passes, the port
changes to IS-NR. Raised fault conditions, whether their alarms are reported or not, can be retrieved
on the CTC Conditions tab or by using the TL1 RTRV-COND command.
Note
CTC will not allow you to change a port service state from IS-NR to OOS-MA,DSBLD. You
must first change a port to the OOS-MA,MT service state before putting it in the
OOS-MA,DSBLD service state.
For more information about service states, refer to the “Administrative and Service States” appendix of
the Cisco ONS 15600 Reference Manual.
Step 4
If the port is in loopback (OOS-MA,LPBK & MT) and you set the Admin State to IS, a confirmation
window appears indicating that the loopback will be released and that the action could be service
affecting. To continue, click Yes.
Step 5
If you set the Admin State to IS,AINS, set the soak period time in the AINS Soak field. This is the
amount of time that the port will stay in the OOS-AU,AINS service state after a signal is continuously
received. When the soak period elapses, the port changes to the IS-NR service state.
Step 6
Click Apply.

For additional information about circuit service states, refer to the “Circuits and Tunnels” chapter in the
Cisco ONS 15600 Reference Manual.
Step 6
If you want to apply the state to the circuit source and destination ports, check the Apply to Drop Ports
check box.
Note
CTC will not allow you to change a drop port service state from IS-NR to OOS-MA,DSBLD.

CTC will not change the service state of the circuit source and destination port in certain circumstances.
For example, if a port is in loopback (OOS-MA,LPBK & MT), CTC will not change the port to IS-NR.
In another example, if the circuit size is smaller than the port, CTC will not change the port service state
from IS-NR to OOS-MA,DSBLD. If CTC cannot change the port service state, you must change the port
service state manually. For more information, see the “DLP-E115 Change the Service State for a Port”

Note
User can provision SDCCs and LDCCs (Line DCC) on different ports . User can provision the
SONET Line DCCs and SDCCs (when not used as a DCC termination by the ONS 15600) as
DCC tunnels. See the “DLP-E105 Create a DCC Tunnel” task on page 17-5. When LDCC is
provisioned, an SDCC termination is allowed on the same port, but is not recommended. SDCC
and LDCC are only needed on the same port during a software upgrade if the software version
does not support LDCC. Provision Section DCC termination on the port that already has LDCC
see “DLP-E114 Provision Section DCC Terminations” task on page 17-14. Delete LDCC
provisioned on that port, see “DLP-E199 Delete a Line DCC Termination” task on page 17-76.

Line DCCs and the Section DCC (when not used as a DCC termination by the ONS 15600) can
be provisioned as DCC tunnels. See the “DLP-E105 Create a DCC Tunnel” task on page 17-5.
Step 4
In the Port Admin State area, click Set to IS to put the port in service.
Step 5
Verify that the Disable OSPF on DCC Link check box is unchecked.
Step 6
If the SDCC termination is to include a non-ONS node, check the Far End is Foreign check box. This
automatically sets the far-end node IP address to 0.0.0.0, which means that any address can be specified
by the far end. To change the default to a specific the IP address, see the “DLP-E197 Change a Line DCC
Termination” task on page 17-75.
Step 7
In the Layer 3 box, perform one of the following:
•
Check the IP box only—if the LDCC is between the ONS 15600 and another ONS node and only
ONS nodes reside on the network. The LDCC will use PPP (point-to-point protocol).
•
Check the IP and OSI boxes—if the LDCC is between the ONS 15600 and another ONS node and
third party NEs that use the OSI protocol stack are on the same network. The LDCC will use PPP.

Provision the following fields:
– Router—Choose the OSI router.
– ESH—Sets the End System Hello propagation frequency. End system NEs transmit ESHs to
inform other ESs and ISs about the NSAPs it serves. The default is 10 seconds. The range is 10
to 1000 seconds.
– ISH—Sets the Intermediate System Hello PDU propagation frequency. Intermediate system
NEs send ISHs to other ESs and ISs to inform them about the IS NETs it serves. The default is
10 seconds. The range is 10 to 1000 seconds.

– IIH—Sets the Intermediate System to Intermediate System Hello PDU propagation frequency.
The IS-IS Hello PDUs establish and maintain adjacencies between ISs. The default is 3 seconds.
The range is 1 to 600 seconds.
– IS-IS Cost—Sets the cost for sending packets on the LAN subnet. The IS-IS protocol uses the
cost to calculate the shortest routing path. The default metric cost for LAN subnets is 20. It
normally should not be changed.
