Chapter 2
Set-up and Installation
This section describes how to set up and install the 9161.
Before setting up the 9161, make sure the serial cable (required to connect the chassis to a VT100
type terminal or PC) is available.
2.1
Install the 9161
The 9161 is tested and inspected before shipment from the factory. If there is obvious damage to the
shipping container, contact the carrier immediately.
Caution:
Follow electrostatic discharge (ESD) safety precautions when handling Canoga
Perkins products, as with all electronic devices with static sensitive components.
1. Unpack the 9161. Keep the shipping container until the unit is installed and fully operational. In
the unlikely event that the unit is defective, contact Canoga Perkins Customer Service for a return
authorization number (RMA) and instructions on return shipment. For details, see Appendix A.
2. Mount the 9161 in a rack or as a standalone unit.
•
•
Use the standard rackmount kit with brackets and screws to install the 9161 in a 19-inch rack or
use the optional 23-inch rackmount kit. The 9161 includes two sets of mounting holes.
• For a front chassis mount, align the screw holes in the brackets with the screw holes at the
front of the side panel of the 9161, then secure the screws.
• For a mid- or recessed chassis mount, align the screw holes in the brackets with the screw
holes in the middle of the side panel of the 9161, then secure the screws.
To use the 9161 as a standalone unit, place it on a secure, flat surface within reach of the power
and fiber optic connections
3. Connect the power. The 9161 can be equipped for either AC or DC power.
•
Plug the AC power cord into the socket at the rear of the 9161 and the wall socket.
Caution:
•
Reversing the connections can damage both the DC source and the 9161.
Connect power for the -48 VDC power supply.
• For a -48 VDC source, connect the grounding strap between the Chassis Ground and the
+VDC terminals.
• For a +48 VDC source, connect the grounding strap between the Chassis Ground and the
-VDC terminals.
4. Plug the SFP(s) into the 10G x port(s); the slot is keyed. To remove an SFP, either lift the bail or
press the button on the SFP, then gently pull it out.
9161 Network Interface Device
2-1
Cabling for the 9161 includes the serial cable to the Terminal port, the Ethernet cable for a UTP port,
and the fiber optic link to the Tx and Rx ports.
5. Plug the serial cable into the SLIP or Terminal port on the rear panel and your PC. For the
pinouts, see Chapter 5, Specifications.
•
•
The EIA 232 Terminal port provides serial access to the management software.
The SLIP port provides serial or modem access to the management software.
Dirty optical connectors are a common cause of link loss or attenuation problems, especially for SMF.
Clean the connectors before plugging in a cable and whenever there is a significant or unexplained
light loss. To prevent contamination, always install protective dust covers on unused fiber optic
connectors.
6. Wipe the ferrule and the end-face surface of the male fiber coupler with a lint-free, isopropyl
alcohol pad from a fiber cleaning kit.
7. Use canned air to blow any dust out of the female fiber coupler.
Caution:
To avoid damaging the fiber end-surface or connector, use extreme care when
installing or removing cables.
8. Plug in the optical cables with Tx to Rx, Rx to Tx orientation.
Caution:
To protect the Ethernet port from an intrabuilding lightning surge, use a properly
grounded shielded cable.
9. Label each cable and connector with the signal name and direction.
2.2
Measure Fiber Link Attenuation and Transmit Power
Canoga Perkins recommends that you determine and record link attenuation and transmission power
before starting normal link traffic. The attenuation factor and transmission power identify potential
problems with links near the lower limit of receiver limitations.
For details on link attenuation and transmission power, see Chapter 5.

User Operation
This chapter describes the hardware features and functions of the 9161.
3.1
9161 Functions and Power-Up
During the initial power-up sequence, all LEDs light amber. When start-up is complete, the setup and
installation are correct, and data is transmitting normally across the link, the STA LED lights green
and the LNK/Rx and Tx LEDs for both ports light green or blink green when they transmit or receive
data. See
3.2
Front Panel LEDs
The LEDs on the front panel show the system and port conditions. The STA and CFG LEDs show
the management conditions; see Table 1. Each interface module includes from two to six LEDs;
Table 2 lists all possible LEDs. For details about the LEDs, see your interface module and Tables 1
and 2.

Alarms
The 9161 can generate Traps and Major and Minor Alarms. For details about the Traps Log and
setting up notification, see Chapter 4.
3.3.1 Remote Fault
If the Extension port Rx loses the signal, it sends a Remote Fault (RMTF) signal from its Tx, the Rx
LED is off, and an alarm flags the link loss on the Extension port; see Figure 2. When the Extension
port receives a Remote Fault signal, the Rx LED lights red and an alarm flags the remote side optical
link failure. Both local and remote link partners must be configured to the same RMTF
enable/disable setting. To set RMTF in software, see Section 4.7. RMTF complies with the
IEEE802.3u Remote Fault standard.

3.3.2 Link Loss Forwarding
When LLF is enabled, a fault on one side of the 9161 propagates to the other side to notify that device
and stops signal transmission (brings down the link). See Figure 3. Set the LLF propagation to User
to Extension, Extension to User, or both directions. Set this in the User Interface; see Section 4.7.

Ethernet bridges or switches use the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), an algorithm that creates a logical
topology that connects all network segments and ensures only one path between any two stations.
When STP is enabled, the 9161 monitors the incoming data packets and periodically sends Bridge
Protocol Data Units (BPDU). STP monitors the incoming BPDUs to detect any loops. If the same
BPDU arrives on two ports, STP blocks one port to remove the loop. Because this tree-like structure
spans all nodes in the network, it is called Spanning Tree. Figure 16 shows a typical STP application.

Maintenance and Troubleshooting
5.1
General Maintenance
Well-maintained components and clearly identified cables help assure optimum system operation.
Damaged fiber cables and dirty connectors are a common source of signal loss or attenuation. Single
mode and multimode fiber optics are especially sensitive to contamination. Inspect, clean, and test all
components to maintain optimum performance.
Note:
•
•
•
To avoid damage and signal loss, do not over-tighten or force-fit optical connectors.
To clean the ferrules and end-face surfaces of male fiber couplings, use a lint-free pad saturated
with isopropyl alcohol.
To clean the female fiber connectors, use canned air.
To prevent damage and contamination, place protective dust caps on all unused optical
connectors.
5.2
Manage Cable Links
Plan to manage the cables to ensure trouble-free operation and maintenance tasks.
•
Position and secure the fiber optic cables to prevent excessive bends and damage. Follow the
guidelines for the bend radius for specific fiber cables.
Note:
•
•
If no minimum bend radius is specified, the typical long-term, low-stress radius is not less
than 15 times the cable diameter (based on Federal Standard FS-1037C).
Always connect the fiber optic cables in the standard Tx to Rx and Rx to Tx scheme.
Label each cable near each end with the signal direction, source, and destination to minimize
connection errors.
5.3
Check Optical Power Levels
To ensure the proper performance levels, measure the fiber link loss, or link attenuation, for all fiber
links. Each 9161 is shipped with a document that lists the output power for each laser transmitter. To
determine link attenuation, use either the 9161 Tx source or a hand-held 1310/1550 nm laser source, a
fiber optic test jumper cable (with known loss), and an optical power meter.
Note:
For accurate results, warm up each unit for at least 30 minutes before checking power levels.
The transmission laser in the 9161 turns on automatically when the chassis receives power.

5.3.1 Measure Transmitter Output Power
To measure the output power, follow these steps:
1. Clean the connectors on the fiber optic test cable, then plug it in to the Tx connector on the 9161.
2. Warm up each component for at least 30 minutes.
3. Set the optical power meter to the proper wavelength.
4. Wait two or three minutes for the power reading to stabilize, and then read the output power.
5. Subtract out the test cable loss, then record the power level and compare it to the value on the
performance sheet for that particular 9161. Measurement tolerance is +/- 0.5 dBm.
Note:
When referencing optical power levels with numerical values less than zero, the reading
closer to zero is the greater value; for example, -17 dBm is greater than -20 dBm.
6. If the reading is incorrect, repeat the measurement with a different test cable. If the power level is
still not within range, call Technical Support.
7. After calculating the link attenuation, subtract that value from the 9161 Tx output value to
determine the power expected at the remote cable end, which is the input power at the remote
receiver.
5.3.2 Measure Receiver Input Power
If you know the link attenuation, skip this section. Otherwise, follow these steps to use the 9161 to
measure the link attenuation.
1. At the local site, connect the fiber link cable to Tx on the 9161.
2. At the remote site, set the optical power meter to the proper wavelength and connect it to the fiber
link cable.
3. Record the optical power level and compare it with the sensitivity level listed on the data sheet
for the link fiber type.
4. Subtract the remote power level from the value for the transmitter output power at the local site.
The result provides the link loss, in dB. This power level must not exceed the limit for Rx
sensitivity listed on the data sheet for the remote unit.
Note:
5-2
If you cannot determine the Rx sensitivity, contact Canoga Perkins Technical Support
Department for assistance.

5.3.3 Measure Fiber Link Attenuation
Determine and record link attenuation before starting normal link traffic. The attenuation factor
identifies potential problems with links that are on the threshold of receiver limitations.
Measure optical fiber links at the shortest wavelength of operation to determine the limiting factor in
the loss budget. Each device that transmits to an 9161 has a loss budget that is specified by the
manufacturer and recorded on a data sheet provided with the equipment. That loss budget must be
greater than the total of the measured loss of the fiber link and the attenuation of the 9161s.
Use a power meter calibrated for the laser source, then factor in approximately 1 dB for the connector
loss from the patch cables between the 9161 and the local device. (Each fiber connection can
generate 0.5 dB of additional loss.)
Note:
Consider this measurement when extending the link at WWDM wavelengths because the
shorter wavelengths have a greater loss.
To measure attenuation:
1. Attach the transmit fiber to the local and remote ends of the link.
Note:
To avoid damage, do not over-tighten or force-fit the optical connectors.
2. With a properly calibrated optical power meter, measure the optical power on the fiber that will
be connected to the Rx connector at one site. Record this reading.
Note:
Use either a hand-held power meter or other similar measuring device.
3. Repeat this process at the other site.
5.4
Troubleshooting
This section describes fault conditions and corrective action. The multifunction LEDs and the alarms
display all failures.
Whenever there is a significant signal loss, first check the fiber path and the minimum bend radius for
problems. Remove and inspect the cable connectors, being careful not to damage the fiber end-face
surface or the connector housing. Clean all optical connectors before reinstalling them.
5.4.1 LED Indicators
For details on the LED status during a normal start-up, see Chapter 3.
The front panel LEDs show both normal and fault conditions. Additional information about fault
conditions appears in various status and information screens. To aid troubleshooting, Tables 1 and 2
list the functions of the front panel LEDs.

5.4.2 New Installation
On new installations, make sure that all steps in Chapter 2 are complete, then follow these steps:
1. Check that the STA LED is green.
2. Check that the fiber type is single mode.
3. Make these checks:
•
•
•
•
•
All fiber cabling is of the same type; do not mix multimode and single mode cables.
The fiber optic cable is within the specifications and loss budget of the optic interface
module.
The line length between the 9161 and the remote link does not exceed the allowable loss
budget or overdrive limit.
All host modules in the link are turned on.
All fiber cables are connected Tx to Rx and Rx to Tx.
5.4.3 Problems With Fiber Optics
If a port information screen shows that a link is down, inspect and clean the cables and connectors,
then replace any damaged fiber. Retest modules after cleaning.
