The opposite situation is also possible. Figure 4-21 on page 4-32 describes an
OC-192/TN-64X span of control overlay onto an OPTera LH system. This
example shows 10-Gb/s signal feeds from OC-192/TN-64X bays being
directly multiplexed with the OPTera LH Repeater signals.
In Figure 4-22 on page 4-33, only one wavelength is shown for illustration
purposes. In this figure, the router uses the OPTera LH network to
communicate to the other router. The router generates a 1310 nm signal that is
received by the Wavelength Translator (WT). The WT converts the 1310 nm
signal into the ITU-T grid so that it can be used by the OPTera LH network
elements. The wavelength undergoes amplification and regeneration before it
arrives at the far-end WT, where the wavelength is then translated and
transmitted to the router on the opposite end of the network. The same optical
path configuration can be achieved in 10-Gb/s applications using the 10-Gb/s
WT.
OPTera LH Wavelength Translators help carriers extend the economic and
capacity advantages of DWDM technology to a highly varied mix of network
element types and services.

Typical bay configurations
Examples of system configurations using OPTera LH bays as repeaters
System configurations using bays configured as repeaters include the
following:
• 32-wavelength open interface configuration using 4 bays with 10G WT
• 32-wavelength regenerator configuration using 4 bays with 10G XR as
regenerator
• 8-wavelength bidirectional configuration with 3 bays over a single
fiber-optic link carrying unprotected traffic
• 8-wavelength bidirectional configurations with 3 bays over two fiber-optic
links carrying protected traffic

32-wavelength open interface using 4 OPTera LH bays with 10G WT as a
wavelength translator
Figure 4-24 on page 4-36 represents fiber interconnection in a west facing
open interface site. In this scenario, the 10G wavelengths are interfacing to a
router hub. Data is received on blue wavelengths, translated, routed, translated,
and then transmitted on red wavelengths.
The 4-bay layout in Figure 4-23 on page 4-35 shows the fiber routing in the
open interface configuration. Line fiber arrives into bay 1 through the MOR
Plus and then is routed to the optical DEMUX modules. The wavelengths are
separated and routed to the 10G translators (WT) on bay 1. The wavelengths
whose translators are on bays 2, 3, or 4 are routed through DWDM upgrade
fibers. After the data is translated, it is routed over fiber to the routers. The data
is then returned to the adjacent circuit pack where it is translated and then
transmitted over a new wavelength to the optical MUX modules. The
wavelengths are then recombined onto one fiber and then routed through the
MOR Plus and onto the line fiber. There is minimal bay-to-bay fiber routing in
this configuration. The majority of the fiber interconnections have been
contained within the bay.

32-wavelength regenerator configuration using 4 OPTera LH bays with
10G XR as a regenerator
The schematic Figure 4-26 on page 4-39 represents fiber interconnection in a
32-wavelength regenerator site. Blue wavelengths are travelling westbound,
while red wavelengths are travelling eastbound.
The 4-bay layout Figure 4-25 on page 4-38 shows the bay layout in the
regenerator configuration. Line fiber arrives into bay 1 through the MOR Plus
and is routed to the optical DEMUX modules where the wavelengths are
separated and routed to the 10G regenerators (XR) on bay 1. The data is
electrically regenerated and then optically transmitted to the optical MUX
modules, where the wavelengths are recombined onto one fiber and then
routed through the MOR Plus and onto the optical line. Again, there is minimal
bay-to-bay fiber routing. The majority of the fiber interconnections have been
contained within the bay.

8-wavelength bidirectional configuration using 3 OPTera LH bays over a
single fiber-optic link carrying unprotected traffic
See Figure 4-27, “Overall view: Single fiber system with 16 wavelengths
bidirectional and 1625/1510 nm OSC” on page 4-41.
This figure captures all the networking applications provided by OPTera LH
Release 1.2 and 1.5. Network element 1 (NE1) and NE3 are terminal sites
where incoming signals from the subtending equipment are multiplexed and
sent down the line, and where outgoing signals from the optical link are
demultiplexed and sent to the subtending equipment. This configuration
includes 16 bidirectional wavelengths but the release supports a maximum of
32 wavelengths. All amplifier stages are described and NE2 acts as a line
amplifier site. OPTera LH supports all fiber types. If required, the signal
propagating in a link can be regenerated at a regenerator site: the thin
SONET/SDH regenerator site.
All of these sites are described in the following figures, with respective circuit
packs slot allocation:
• Figure 4-28, “NE1 Red Post Site: Single fiber configuration with 8
wavelengths, bidirectional” on page 4-42
• Figure 4-29, “NE2 line amplifier site using mid-stage access (MSA) MOR
Plus” on page 4-43
• Figure 4-30, “NE2: Thin SONET/SDH regenerator site” on page 4-44.
• Figure 4-31, “NE3 Blue Post Site: Single fiber configuration with 16
wavelengths” on page 4-45.
Note: To achieve bidirectional OSC communication in a single fiber
system, a 1625 nm OSC circuit pack is required to provide a 1625 nm
communication channel propagating in the opposite direction of the 1510
nm OSC built into the MOR Plus circuit pack.
For full SONET/SDH signal regeneration, the Repeater bay can be configured
as a regenerator using the OC-192/STM-64 XR circuit packs. This
configuration is very useful for high-capacity regeneration of up to 8 10 Gb/s
bidirectional signals in one single bay. See Figure 4-32, “10 Gb/s regenerator
site using the OPTera LH Repeater bay” on page 4-46.
Note: The OC-192/STM-64 XR circuit pack is only supported in OPTera
LH Release 1.5.

8-wavelength bidirectional configuration using 3 OPTera LH bays over
two fiber-optic links carrying protected traffic
See the following figures:
• Figure 4-33, “Overall view of an 8-wavelength bidirectional system
carrying working traffic” on page 4-49
• Figure 4-34, “Overall view of an 8-wavelength bidirectional system
carrying protected traffic” on page 4-50
These figures introduce a protected model of the preceding configuration
example (Figure 4-27 on page 4-41), using 8 bidirectional wavelengths
carrying the working signals and 8 other bidirectional wavelengths carrying
the protected signals. The Red wavelengths are propagating in the East
direction in the working system and in the West direction in the protected
system. The opposite is valid for the Blue wavelengths. This protected system
requires the same equipment as the unprotected one but with less capacity for
each fiber. All the NEs described in Figure 4-33 and Figure 4-34 are detailed
in the following figures:
• Figure 4-35, “NE1 Red Post Site for working fiber and Blue Post site for
protection fiber” on page 4-51
• Figure 4-36, “NE2 line amplifier site using MSA MOR Plus for working
and protection fibers” on page 4-52
• Figure 4-37, “NE2 Thin SONET/SDH regeneration working and
protection site as an alternative” on page 4-53
• Figure 4-35, “NE1 Red Post Site for working fiber and Blue Post site for
protection fiber” on page 4-51.
• Figure 4-36, “NE2 line amplifier site using MSA MOR Plus for working
and protection fibers” on page 4-52.
• Figure 4-37, “NE2 Thin SONET/SDH regeneration working and
protection site as an alternative” on page 4-53
• Figure 4-39, “NE3 Blue Post Site for working fiber and Red Post Site for
protection fiber” on page 4-55
The conventional way to provide protection in an OPTera LH system is to
duplicate the circuit packs and wavelength allocation plan deployed in the
working system. One fiber carries the working channels. The other fiber
carries the protected channels. To provide bidirectionality, the direction of
propagation of the working bands must be reversed in the protection fiber. See
Figure 4-38, “Working fiber and Protection fiber: wavelengths and signals” on
page 4-54.
In a bidirectional fully protected system it is recommended to use the same
wavelengths for both working and protection fibers. To achieve
bidirectionality, it is required to reverse the direction of propagation of each
wavelength in the protection fiber only.
Repeater Network Application Guide NTY311AX Rel 1.2 and 1.5 Issue 3
4-48 Engineering rules
Therefore, at a regenerator site, DWDM couplers must be the same for the
working fiber and the protection fiber. This requirement explains the
duplication of the PBA couplers in Figure 4-37, “NE2 Thin SONET/SDH
regeneration working and protection site as an alternative” on page 4-53.
Note: The 1625 nm OSC channel is not required in a 2-fiber configuration
when 1 fiber carries working traffic and the other carries protection traffic.
The 1510 nm built-in OSC is sufficient to achieve bidirectional service
communication since one 1510 nm travels in the working fiber and the
other 1510 nm travels in the protection fiber. The 1510 nm OSCs do not
interfere with one another.

Relative humidity
This section provides information on the maximum and minimum relative
humidity specifications for the OPTera LH product.
Continuous operation
10 to 85% relative humidity.
Short-term operation
5 to 95% relative humidity but not greater than 0.024 kg water/kg dry air.
This is fully compliant with Bellcore GR-63-CORE, Issue 1, October 1995,
Section 4.1.2, “Operating Temperature and Humidity Criteria”.
Shipping/storage
Up to 95% relative humidity at 40°C for 96 hrs.
This is fully compliant with Bellcore GR-63-CORE, Issue 1, October 1995,
Section 4.1.1, “Transportation and Storage Environmental Criteria”.
Altitude
The OPTera LH network element is quoted to operate up to 4000 m (13 000
ft.) above sea level.
Note: For altitudes above 1830 m (6000 ft.), the specified operating
temperature range must be derated by a factor of 2°C (3.6°F) for every
305 m (1000 ft.) up to 4000 m (13 000 ft.).
Atmospheric dust
The OPTera LH shelves do not require any air filters. The enclosed
construction of circuit packs equipped in the main transport shelf permits
forced air cooling operation without air filters and associated maintenance,
eliminating the risk of airborne contaminants ending up on the electronic
components of the circuit packs. The dust contaminants, if allowed in quantity
on the electronic components, would otherwise reduce cooling and potentially
induce hardware/intermittent faults.
The equipment remains operational and is subject to the requirements of
Bellcore TR-NWT-000063, Issue 5, September 1993, Section 4.6, “Airborne
Contaminants”.
Mechanical shock and vibration
The OPTera LH network element meets mechanical robustness requirements

of an OPTera LH network element.
Battery voltage requirements
Range
−39 V dc to −75 V dc
Battery step change during end wall
switching
5 V step @ ≥ 5 V/ms
Power distribution
The OPTera LH system is powered by redundant feeds. Failure of one of the
power feeds due to an open or short circuit does not affect the system. Two
breaker/filter modules provide power for the OPTera LH shelves.
OPTera LH NTY311AX Rel 1.2 and 1.5 Issue 3
Technical specifications 5-11
The A side and the B side can have separate power supplies. See the following
table for the acceptable voltage difference between the two power supplies.
Measured voltage across
Acceptable range
A (-48) and A (RET)

B (-48) and B (RET)
-39 V to -75 V
A (-48) and B (-48)
0±5V
A (RET) and B (RET)
0 ± 0.1 V
Power installation requirements
The recommended power cable gauge to be used between the fused power
panel and the OPTera LH bay is no. 6 AWG, depending on the distance to the
battery distribution fuse bay (BDFB).
Six power feeds
The fuse/breaker for each power lead from the BDFB must be 40 amperes.
Two power feeds
The fuse/breaker for each power lead from the BDFB must be 100 amperes.
Note 1: Various types of fuses/breakers can be used to protect the wiring
between the battery distribution fuse bay (BDFB) and the bay. The given
amperage values are independent of the fuse or breaker used.
Note 2: A network element configured as an MOR Plus stand-alone can
be powered by the two power feed configuration with 100-ampere
fuses/breakers. If the six power feed configuration is used, the 40 ampere
fuses/breakers should still be used.
Grounding and isolation
OPTera LH equipment uses an integrated frame and logic grounding system.
For example, the −4.5 and −12 V dc logic ground from the point-of-use power
supply (PUPS) of each circuit pack is connected to the frame of the shelf
through the backplane. The battery return is separated from the frame ground
in accordance with Bellcore GR-63-CORE, Issue 1, October 1995.
Note: RS-232, parallel telemetry and Ethernet grounding pins are
connected to the shelf ground.

Networks has defined “Building Blocks” (BB) that can be combined using
engineering rules to create the required applications.
The building blocks are described in the context of a 100 GHz-spaced DWDM
system that supports a maximum of 32 wavelengths. The MOR Plus amplifier
supports 100 GHz-spaced DWDM system that enables the multiplexing of up
to 32 wavelengths. When used in a 200 GHz-channel spacing mixed
applications with MOR Plus circuit packs, the maximum capacity is 16
wavelengths.
The OPTera LH Release 1.2 and 1.5 Repeater consists of the following
building blocks that you can combine in several ways to create a variety of
optical network applications:
• MOR Plus amplifier and 1625 nm OSC module
• 2.5G WT circuit pack for 2.5 Gb/s open optical interfaces
• 10G WT circuit pack for 10 Gb/s open optical interfaces
• OC-192/STM-64 XR circuit pack for 10 Gb/s regenerator applications
• DWDM couplers
• DCM modules
You require a variety of these optical building blocks to create the different
sites of a network configuration.
MOR Plus amplifier circuit pack
This circuit pack is an evolution of the MOR amplifier. The MOR Plus
amplifier can amplify up to 32 bidirectional optical channels for the OPTera
LH Repeater system offering. This amplifier is the baseline amplifier for 32-λ
applications. The MOR Plus amplifier improves deployment flexibility by
providing a per-band access (PBA) functionality where components such as
DCM or add/drop couplers can be inserted. MOR Plus is also available with a
built-in 1510 nm optical service channel (OSC) channel, which travels with the
RED band. For detailed specifications, see Table 5-2, Circuit pack

Functional description
MOR Plus amplifier circuit packs optically amplify a maximum of up to 32 optical channels that are
symmetrically allocated in two wavelength bands: the RED (1547.5 nm to 1561.0 nm) and BLUE
(1528.4 nm to 1542.5 nm) bands. A maximum of up to 16 wavelengths are co-propagating in each
band. The two bands are travelling in opposite directions to provide full bidirectionality in a single
optical fiber. The MOR Plus provides access to each optical band. The MOR Plus, configured as a line
amplifier, enables the insertion of components at its mid stage. When correct engineering rules are
followed (see OPTera LH NTPs for engineering rules), the loss of the component inserted in an MOR
Plus line amplifier cannot decrease the reach of the optical link.

Hardware description
The MOR Plus amplifier circuit pack is designed to be installed in the OPTera LH equipment bay.
There are two MOR Plus amplifier modules: the RED Pre/BLUE Post and the BLUE Pre/RED Post.
Both amplifier circuit packs are designed to be installed in the OPTera LH equipment bay. One of each
module is used at MUX/DEMUX sites (optical multiplex section site). The two modules are combined
to form a line amplifier with mid-stage component insertion capability. Each direction of transmission
is routed through separate amplifier gain regions. Amplification in each direction of transmission
occurs because the input optical signals acquire energy from a dedicated 980 nm pump laser. Each
optical path includes WDM splitters and combiners for the pump laser and signal, optical isolators and
optical gain flattening filters. Power monitoring is performed by means of four PIN photodetectors that
are positioned at the input/output ports of the EDFA gain block modules. Three connectors are located
on the module faceplate. For the RED Pre/BLUE Post amplifier, they are designated as RED out,
BLUE in, and RED in/BLUE out. For the BLUE Pre/RED Post amplifier, they are designated as BLUE
out, RED in, and BLUE in/RED out. FC, ST, or SC type adapters can be ordered to match the fiber
plant connector types.
Two loss of signal (LOS) LEDs are located on the upper part of the faceplate, allowing the separate
identification of signal loss for each transmission direction (RED band or BLUE band directions).
Another two LEDs are located on the faceplate to identify if the circuit pack is active (green LED) or
failing (red LED).
OAM&P features
The MOR Plus amplifier has the following features:
• remote provisioning
• total and per-channel optical power monitoring (analog maintenance)
• optical link equalization software to optimize link performance
• alarm reporting
• optical reflectometer (bidirectional port only)
• channel autodiscovery
• autopropagation of provisioned values
• local locking of provisioned values

Functional description
The 10 Gb/s DWDM Wavelength Translator (WT) acts as a gateway converting non-Nortel
Networks DWDM wavelengths to Nortel Networks optical frequencies aligned with the ITU-T grid.
The frequency accuracy and stability of the optical signal emitted allows these WTs to be used in
DWDM systems with spacings of 100 GHz or more between adjacent wavelengths. Analog
maintenance features are supported.
Wavelength translators are capable of processing thin SONET/SDH signals. Therefore, these
translators provide access to the optical backbone. This arrangement allows for open architectures.
Hardware description
The 10 Gb/s DWDM Wavelength Translator (WT) is designed to be installed in the OPTera LH
equipment bay. The 10 Gb/s DWDM WT is equipped with an electro-optic modulator, photodetector
and the required RF circuitry to convert the 10 Gb/s modulated optical signal to the electrical domain
for 3R regeneration and overhead processing. The signal is then converted back to the optical
domain with a specific carrier wavelength.
Three LEDs are located on the faceplate to identify a LOS (yellow LED), an active circuit pack
(green LED), or a failed circuit pack (red LED).

Engineering rules
1 In a DWDM environment, MOR Plus amplifiers support up to 32
traffic-carrying wavelengths at one time. These 16 wavelengths include 16
wavelengths in the red spectrum (between 1547.5 nm and 1561.0 nm), and
8 wavelengths in the blue spectrum (between 1528.4 nm and 1542.5 nm).
2 Use this transmitter in conjunction with DWDM couplers and MOR circuit
packs.
3 This transmitter supports both positive chirp and negative chirp. The chirp
is provisionable.
4 Nortel Networks has selected this transmitter to be the spare wavelength
for the RED optical band signals. For more information about the DWDM
wavelength allocation plan, see the OPTera LH NTPs.
5 Nortel Networks has selected this transmitter to be the spare wavelength
for the BLUE optical band signals. For more information about the
DWDM wavelength allocation plan, see the OPTera LH NTPs.
6 Nortel Networks has selected this transmitter to be the seventh
recommended deployment wavelength in the RED band. For more
information about the DWDM wavelength allocation plan, see the OPTera
LH NTPs.

Order one optical connector adapter of the required type for each
adapterless circuit pack. See Table 6-13 for ordering codes and engineering
rules for each type of optical connector adapter.
These wavelengths are not supported with the 32-wavelength MOR Plus

Note 1: NDSF= non-dispersion shifted fiber, DSF=dispersion-shifted fiber,
λ0=fiber’s zero dispersion wavelength (wavelength at which dispersion is zero).
Note 2: For NDSF fiber, the dispersion in the window of interest is typical in the 17
ps/nm x km (this varies as a function of signal wavelength, fiber slope and λ0) range.
Note 3: Standard DSF fiber has a λ0 of 1557.5 ± 12.5 nm (i.e. 1544.5 nm to 1569.5
nm). A transmitter at 1533 ± 2.5 nm will always see negative dispersion, whereas a
transmitter at 1557 ± 2.5 nm may see positive or negative dispersion. The DSF fiber
dispersion slope is typically in the 0.08 ps/nm x km2 (this varies as a function of
signal wavelength, fiber slope and λ0) range.
Note 4: Use the fiber manufacturer data to determine the sign of dispersion for the
system at the signal wavelength (λ0) employed.
Note 5: SMF-LSTM fiber has a λ0 > 1560 nm, therefore, dispersion for a transmitter
at 1557 nm or 1533 nm will always be negative.
Note 6: TrueWaveTM fiber has a λ0 < 1530 nm, therefore, dispersion for a
transmitter at 1557 nm or 1533 nm will always be positive.
