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.

    An APS Inconsistent alarm means that an inconsistent APS byte is present. The SDH overhead contains K1/K2 APS bytes that notify receiving equipment, such as the ONS 15310-MA SDH, to switch the SDH signal from a working to a protect path when necessary. An inconsistent APS code occurs when three consecutive frames contain nonidentical APS bytes, which in turn give the receiving equipment conflicting commands about switching.

    Alarm Procedures SDH Logical Object: STM The APS Channel Mismatch alarm occurs when the ONS 15310-MA SDH expects a working channel but receives a protect channel. In many cases, the working and protect channels are crossed and the protect channel is active. If the fibers are crossed and the working line is active, the alarm does not occur.
