  • Page 35: Information About Physical Installation

    • Bump-in-the-Wire (Inline) Topology Typically, the SCE 1000 is connected on a full duplex line between two devices (Router, BRAS, and so forth). When the SCE 1000 is installed as a bump-in-the-wire, it physically resides on the data link between the subscriber side and the network side, and can both receive and transmit traffic (Figure 3-1).
  • Page 36: External Splitting (Receive-Only) Topology

    3-2). In this topology, the traffic passes through the external splitter, which splits traffic to the SCE 1000. The external splitter is connected to the SCE 1000 via Rx links only. The SCE 1000, therefore, receives traffic only. It does not transmit.
  • Page 37: Information About Redundancy

    A single SCE 1000 platform does not provide redundancy for SCE 1000 control functions. In case of failure of the SCE 1000 unit, the SCE 1000 simply bypasses the traffic; the traffic link is not cut, but no control or monitoring functionality is available.
  • Page 38 After this occurs, the failed SCE 1000 can be fixed/replaced with no downtime, since the box is effectively disconnected from the network. After fixing/replacing the failed SCE 1000, you must copy the configuration of the current active SCE 1000 to the fixed/replaced SCE 1000.
  • Page 39: Information About Failure And Recovery

  • Page 41: Link Failure Reflection Parameter

    Link Failure Reflection Parameter In a single SCE 1000 topology, the value of this parameter is determined by whether or not the link can be completely cut when the SCE 1000 fails, or whether traffic flow should continue across the link in spite of platform failure.

    Startup problems are commonly due to the source power or to a poor cable connection. When you start up the SCE 1000 platform for the first time, you should observe the startup sequence described in Starting the SCE 1000 Platform. This section contains a more detailed description of the normal startup sequence and describes the steps to take if the system does not perform that sequence as expected.

    Check the following to help isolate a problem in the power subsystem. In the normally configured SCE 1000 platform with redundant power supply units, it is unlikely that the device will not start at all.

    GBE signals to and from the SCE 1000 platform. In case the SCE 1000 platform stops providing power to the External Optical Bypass module, or in case the power cable is disconnected from the optical bypass module, the External Optical Bypass module becomes active, bypassing the two GBE links to the SCE 1000 platform, and thus preserving network connectivity.
