Note
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.
The Cisco ONS 15454 SDH integrates Ethernet into a SDH time-division multiplexing (TDM) platform.

The E100T-G Ethernet card provides high-throughput, low-latency packet switching of Ethernet traffic
across a SDH network while providing a greater degree of reliability through SDH self-healing
protection services. This Ethernet capability enables network operators to provide multiple
10/100-Mbps access drops for high-capacity customer LAN interconnects, Internet traffic, and cable
modem traffic aggregation. It enables the efficient transport and co-existence of traditional TDM traffic
with packet-switched data traffic.
Each E100T-G card supports standards-based, wire-speed, Layer 2 Ethernet switching between its
Ethernet interfaces. The IEEE 802.1Q tag logically isolates traffic (typically subscribers). IEEE 802.1Q
also supports multiple classes of service.

The G1K-4 Gigabit Ethernet card provides high-throughput, low-latency transport of Ethernet
encapsulated traffic (IP and other Layer 3 protocols) across a SDH network while providing a greater
degree of reliability through SDH self-healing protection services. Carrier-class Ethernet transport is
achieved by hitless (< 50 ms) performance in the event of any failures or protection switches (such as
1+1 APS, path protection, BLSR, or optical equipment protection) and full provisioning and
manageability, as in SDH service. Full provisioning support is possible via CTC or CTM. Each G1K-4
card performs independently of the other cards in the same shelf.
5.5.1 G1K-4 Compatibility
Software R4.0 and later identifies G1K-4 cards as G1K-4s upon physical installation. Software prior to
R4.0 identifies both G1000-4 and G1K-4 cards as G1000-4s upon physical installation.
You can install the G1K-4 card in Slots 1 to 6 and 12 to 17, for a total shelf capacity of 48 Gigabit
Ethernet ports. (The practical limit is 40 ports because at least two slots are typically populated by
optical cards such as the OC-192.)

Card-Level LEDs
Description
FAIL LED (Red)
The red FAIL LED indicates that the card’s processor is not ready or that a
catastrophic software failure occurred on the ML1000-2 card. As part of the
boot sequence, the FAIL LED is turned on until the software deems the card
operational.
ACT LED (Green)
A green ACT LED provides the operational status of the ML1000-2. When
the ACT LED is green, it indicates that the ML1000-2 card is active and the
software is operational.
5.7.2 ML1000-2 Port-Level Indicators
The ML1000-2 card has two LEDs for each of the two Gigabit Ethernet ports. The port-level indicators
are described in Table 5-14.

Port-Level LED State
Description
ACT LED (Amber)
Steady amber LED indicates that a link is detected, but there is an issue
inhibiting traffic.
Blinking amber LED means that traffic is flowing.
LINK LED (Green)
Steady green LED indicates that a link is detected, but there is no traffic.
Blinking green LED flashes at a rate proportional to the level of traffic
being received and transmitted over the port.
Both ACT and LINK LED Unlit green and amber LEDs indicate no traffic.
5.7.3 ML1000-2 Slot Compatibility
The ML1000-2 card works in Slots 1 to 6 or 12 to 17.
5.8 GBICs and SFPs
This section describes the GBICs and SFPs used with the Ethernet cards.
The ONS 15454 SDH Ethernet cards use industry standard small form-factor pluggable connectors
(SFPs) and Gigabit Interface Converter (GBIC) modular receptacles. The ML-Series Gigabit Ethernet
cards use standard Cisco SFPs. The Gigabit E-Series card and the G-Series card use standard Cisco
GBICs. With Software Release 4.1 and later, G-Series cards can also be equipped with dense wavelength
division multiplexing (DWDM) and coarse wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM) GBICs to
function as Gigabit Ethernet transponders.
For all Ethernet cards, the type of GBIC or SFP plugged into the card is displayed in CTC and TL1. Cisco
offers SFPs and GBICs as separate orderable products.

5.8.2 GBIC Description
GBICs are integrated fiber optic transceivers that provide high speed serial links from a port or slot to
the network. Various latching mechanisms can be utilized on the GBIC pluggable modules. There is no
correlation between the type of latch to the model type (such as SX or LX/LH) or technology type (such
as Gigabit Ethernet). See the label on the GBIC for technology type and model. One GBIC model has
two clips (one on each side of the GBIC) that secure the GBIC in the slot on the Ethernet card; the other
has a locking handle. Both types are shown in Figure 5-7.

5.8.2.1 DWDM and CWDM GBICs
DWDM (15454-GBIC-xx.x, 15454E-GBIC-xx.x) and CWDM (15454-GBIC-xxxx,
15454E-GBIC-xxxx) GBICs operate in the ONS 15454 G-Series card when the card is configured in
Gigabit Ethernet Transponding mode or in Ethernet over SDH mode. DWDM and CWDM GBICs are
both wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) technologies and operate over single-mode fibers with SC
connectors. Cisco CWDM GBIC technology uses a 20 nm wavelength grid and Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM
GBIC technology uses a 1 nm wavelength grid. CTC displays the specific wavelengths of the installed
CWDM or DWDM GBICs. DWDM wavelengths are spaced closer together and require more precise lasers
than CWDM. The DWDM spectrum allows for optical signal amplification. For more information on
G-Series card transponding mode, see the Cisco ONS 15454 Reference Manual.
The DWDM and CWDM GBICs receive across the full 1300 nm and 1500 nm bands, which includes all
CWDM, DWDM, LX/LH, ZX wavelengths, but transmit on one specified wavelength. This capability
can be exploited in some of the G-Series transponding modes by receiving wavelengths that do not match
the specific transmission wavelength.
Note
G1000-4 cards support CWDM and DWDM GBICs. G1K-4 cards with the Common Language
Equipment Identification (CLEI) code of WM5IRWPCAA (manufactured after August 2003) support
CWDM and DWDM GBICs. G1K-4 cards manufactured prior to August 2003 do not support CWDM or
DWDM GBICs.
The ONS 15454-supported CWDM GBICs reach up to 100 to 120 km over single-mode fiber and support
eight wavelengths as shown in Table 5-16.

5.8.2.1.1 Placement of CWDM or DWDM GBICs
CWDM or DWDM GBICs for the G-Series card come in set wavelengths and are not provisionable. The
wavelengths are printed on each GBIC, for example, CWDM-GBIC-1490. The user must insert the
specific GBIC transmitting the wavelength required to match the input of the CWDM/DWDM device for
successful operation (Figure 5-8). Follow your site plan or network diagram for the required
wavelengths.
