Chapter 1 Introduction The following illustration shows the Model GS7000 Node internal modules and components. This model is the 4-way forward segmentable node. The 2-way forward segmentable node has a different RF amplifier module. 4037424 Rev A...
Transponder Description Transponder Description The Cisco GS7000 DOCSIS Status Monitor Transponder module provides the ability to manage fiber nodes and optical hubs through an existing DOCSIS cable modem infrastructure. Please see your Cisco representative for a complete listing of supported fiber nodes.
Part Number Qty ASSY, MOD, 4X DOCSIS Status Monitor, GS7000. 4036793 Includes GS7000 Cable Kit Spare GS7000 RF Cable Kit (required for cable modem 4038028 downstream frequencies above 140 MHz) Note: This cable kit is not required for optical hub integrations.
Transponder Description The locations of these items are shown in the following illustrations. 4037424 Rev A...
The locations of these items are shown in the preceding illustrations. If the transponder is to be used in a GS7000 node, use the 10 dB pad. If the transponder is to be used in a GS7000 Optical Hub, use the 0 dB pad.
Chapter 2 Installation Cable modem infrastructures are likely to have unique characteristics. For this reason, we strongly recommend that you completely install one transponder and make it operational before deploying the entire system throughout your network. Installing the transponders and making them operational consists of the following steps, which are explained in detail in this chapter: Provisioning the transponders in the network ...
Chapter 2 Installation Provisioning the Transponders in the Network Before installing the transponder, it must be provisioned in the network for the network to recognize, discover, and communicate with the transponder when it is powered up. The following graphic shows a typical network. Note: Some provisioning systems require that the transponder MAC address be added to the CMTS prior to installing the transponder to achieve full functionality.
Time of Day Server IP Address DHCP Server IP Address Deployment of Cisco DOCSIS-based transponders is similar to provisioning standard subscriber cable modems and MTAs. However, there are certain exceptions owing to the transponder being a test device. For example, take care when provisioning that the transponder is not invoiced in the billing system or mistakenly blocked.
Chapter 2 Installation Cable Modem Configuration File Confirm that the cable modem configuration file has been successfully modified and tested prior to deploying transponders into the system in quantity. The transponder manages SNMP filters and trap destinations via the docsDevNmAccessTable. To ensure proper management of SNMP access, such as limiting access to certain SNMP managers or allowing the transponder to send SNMP/HMS traps, the docsDevNmAccessTable must be populated via the cable modem configuration file.
Remove the transponder from the shipping package. Ensure that the correct pad for the desired application is installed in the pad socket. For GS7000 Node applications, verify the use of the 0 dB pad in the transponder pad socket, as shown below.
CAUTION: If a pad with a value less than 10 dB is used and the transponder is used in a GS7000 Node, there is a risk the output power of the transponder may be too high for the node transmitter.
Installing the Transponder Push the transponder down firmly onto the OIB until the transponder seats into position. Use the screws provided with the transponder to secure the transponder to the board. The screw locations are shown in the following illustration. Tighten screws to 25-30 in-lbs (2.8-3.4 Nm). If the downstream cable modem frequency is above 140 MHz, install one or both Forward RF cables (supplied with the transponder) as follows: 4037424 Rev A...
Chapter 2 Installation If you are running RCVR 1 as a single (non-redundant) receiver, attach the RF1 cable to the Optical Receiver 1 "-20 dB test point." Route the cable appropriately within the node, as shown in the following illustration. 4037424 Rev A...
Installing the Transponder If you are running RCVR 1 and RCVR 2 as a redundant pair, attach the RF1 cable to the Optical Receiver 1 "-20 dB test point" AND attach the RF2 cable to the Optical Receiver 2 "-20 dB test point." Route the cables appropriately as shown in the following illustration.
Remove the transponder from the shipping package. Ensure that the correct pad for the desired application is installed in the pad socket. For GS7000 Optical Hub applications, verify the use of the 10 dB pad in the transponder pad socket, as shown below.
Installing the Transponder Position the transponder so that the interface connector shown below aligns with the node interface connector. This connector is located on the optical interface board (OIB) in the lid of the node. The optical hub interface connector is shown below. 4037424 Rev A...

The screw locations are shown in the following illustration. Tighten screws to 25-30 in-lbs (2.8-3.4 Nm). 4037424 Rev A...
FIBERNODEGS7000 MIB Before the transponder can monitor the node, it will need to be set up for how the node is configured. For the GS7000 Node, this can be accomplished by using either the SA-HMS-FIBERNODEGS7000-MIB or through the GS7000 Configuration Data page.
Chapter 2 Installation Component Description saFnOpticalReceiverLoPwrLimit Sets the minimum threshold level for the input signal to the A/B switch in mW. The default is (OID 126.96.36.199.4.1.14188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206) 0.50 and the range is 0.25-2.40. Notes: When the saFnOpticalReceiverLoPwrLimit (OID 220.127.116.11.4.1.1418.104.22.168.22.214.171.124) is set, the LOLO alarm limits for the fnOpticalReceiverPower (OID 126.96.36.199.4.1.55188.8.131.52.1.2) is also set.
Configuring the Transponder Using the SA-HMS-FIBERNODEGS7000 MIB Component Description saFnOpticalReceiverHiPwrLimit Sets the maximum threshold level for input signal to the A/B switch in mW. The default is (OID 184.108.40.206.4.1.14220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168) 2.00 and the range is 0.25-2.40. Notes: This parameter is not implemented within the transponder in versions earlier than 4.1.0.
Chapter 2 Installation Downloading Module Firmware Using the CTLP- DOWNLOAD-MIB With firmware version 4.1.0 and greater, the transponder has the ability to download firmware to Optical Amps and Optical Switches by using the CTLP-Download MIB (OID 22.214.171.124.4.1.2082.5.10.1). Note: While downloading firmware to the Optical Amps and Optical Switches, there will be no communication between the transponder and any Optical Amps or Optical Switches in the Hub or Node during the entire firmware download process, although they will continue to function correctly.
Downloading Module Firmware Using the CTLP-DOWNLOAD-MIB downloadAdminStatus (OID 126.96.36.199.4.1.2082.5.10.1.1.4) – Begins the download to the module(s). – startDownload(1) – Begins the download to the modules with version checking enabled. If a module is running the same version of firmware that is being downloaded, it will not receive the firmware download.
Chapter 2 Installation Checking the LEDs The GS7000 DOCSIS Status Monitor transponder includes 6 green LEDs: Online Elink Stat On initial power up, the LEDs will remain off for several seconds after which time the DS, US, and Online LEDs will blink in unison six times.
Checking the LEDs LED Status Summary The following table summarizes the meaning of the status LEDs. Function State Meaning Power LED The transponder is switched off or is not functioning. (Note: this LED is not tied directly to line power) The transponder is on.
