    SONET multiplexer. For detailed information regarding features, capabilities, hardware, and software introduced with this release, refer to Release 3.3 of the Cisco ONS 15327 Installation and Operations Guide, Cisco ONS 15327 Troubleshooting and Reference Guide, and Cisco ONS 15454 and Cisco ONS 15327 TL1 Command Guide, Release 3.3.

    Cisco tests only with the specific JRE actually shipped with the ONS software CD. DDTS # CSCeb05404 PWR-A/B alarms can become stuck for an ONS 15327 node in the event of a transient power failure. The alarms will clear after resetting both XTCs. This issue is resolved in Release 4.6.

  • Page 3

    DDTS # CSCdx78825 The ONS 15327 XTC reboots after the XTC has received 64 or more ARP requests on a subnet different from that of the XTC. This situation can occur when the network settings (IP address and netmask) are incorrect for the craft Ethernet environment.

  • Page 4: Line Cards

    B3 errors might appear on an OC-12 span after an XTC side switch. A one-time burst of B3 errors might occur after an XTC side switch when the ONS 15327 is configured with an OC-12 line card. This is a rare condition which has been seen in approximately 1% of such XTC side switches.

    BLSR Support for Mixed Node Networks The ONS 15327 is supported for BLSR in combination with ONS 15454 nodes only if Release 3.3 is installed and running on all BLSR nodes. If you wish to provision a BLSR on a combination of ONS 15327 and ONS 15454 nodes, you should upgrade to Release 3.3 on all ONS 15454 and ONS 15327...

    STS PM counts on the other end are increasing. To see this issue, connect two nodes with an OC-12 or OC-48 linear 1+1 protected span. Place a piece of test equipment in the middle of the span and inject B3 Release Notes for Cisco ONS 15327 Release 3.3 OL-2671-01...

    Section 6.2.2; specifically, an interpretation of the block diagrams in fig. 6.19 of the specification (which see). Provision a circuit on an ONS 15327 and inject a high rate of bit errors. Go to the performance monitoring screen and look at the ES, SES, and UAS counters. According to the Telcordia GR-253 block diagrams, when 10 consecutive SES are declared, UAS should be declared and should start counting from 10.

  • Page 8

    From the variable optical attenuator, increase the attenuation ~20 db. The OC-48 trunk card starts to see signal degrade (SD) on its line. The near-end DS-1 port on the ONS 15327 starts to accumulate CV-V and ES-V. The far-end DS-1 should also show PM counts (i.e. CV-V, ES-V, SES-V, UAS-V), but does not.

    Hardware Industrial Temperature With Release 3.3., the ONS 15327 and its line cards are certified for Industrial Temperature (I-temp) operation. I-temp certification specifies that equipment operate in temperatures between -40 to +65 degrees C. The ONS 15327 Ethernet (E100-4) and OC48-1-IR 1310nm cards are not certified for I-temp.

  • Page 11

    I-temp certified. The new fan tray is backward compatible will any existing ONS 15327 chassis. The fan tray assembly consists of six fans, a status LED on the faceplate, and a fan control PCB.

    XTC Ethernet port for Release 3.3. Automatic host detection allows a CTC workstation on a different subnet from the ONS 15327 node to directly connect to the node and launch CTC. Once automatic host detection is enabled it remains active at all times.

  • Page 13

    DCC peer. Craft Access Only In previous releases, when an ONS 15327 XTC card detected an active link on its LAN port it would advertise a route to other DCC connected ONS 15327s indicating that all packets with a destination matching its own subnet should be routed to its LAN port.

  • Page 14

    AIS Off Mode for J1 Path Trace In previous releases, when a J1 trace mismatch is detected the ONS 15327 inserts AIS path in the timeslot. The AIS off mode feature will allow customers to choose between sending or not sending AIS-P downstream from the TIM-P defect.

  • Page 15

    New Features and Functionality A span is the optical fiber connection between two ONS 15327 nodes. In a span upgrade, the transmission rate of a span is upgraded from a lower to a higher OC-N signal but all other span configuration attributes remain unchanged.

  • Page 16

    Alarm Profiles The ONS 15327 includes an alarm profile feature. This allows you to change the default alarm severities (for example, change an alarm severity from minor to major) and apply the new severities at the card, port, node, or network level.

  • Page 17

    ONS 15327 OC-N card. Far-end PM monitoring is not presently supported. An ONS 15327 performing IPPM examines the overhead in the monitored path and derives all of the near-end PM parameters in the incoming transmission direction while allowing the path signal to pass bidirectionally through the NE completely unaltered.

  • Page 18

    Release 3.3, two fiber BLSR protection is fully supported and fully interoperable with ONS 15454 two fiber BLSR. The ONS 15327 node can support up to two 2 fiber BLSR configurations on any of the 4 high speed slots (Slots 1-4). The following guidelines should be used when implementing two fiber BLSR: You can have one BLSR operating at OC-12 and the other BLSR operating at OC-48.

    4.x. CTC can manage 25 nodes concurrently. The 25 nodes can be on a single DCC or split across multiple DCCs. Four concurrent CTC sessions can interact with the same ONS 15327 node at the same time. CTC Installation First-time use of the Cisco Transport Controller requires a computer loaded with a CTC-compatible Internet browser, a CTC-compatible version of the Java Runtime Environment, a target ONS 15327, and TCP/IP DCN connectivity.

  • Page 20

    ONS 15327 can support a maximum of 32 DCC tunnel connections. For details on DCC tunnels you can create on the ONS 15327 and instructions on how to create them, consult the Cisco ONS 15327 User Documentation, Release 3.3.

    24-hour near-end and far-end counts are cleared from the card and the screen. When you clear all interfaces on the card, PM counts for all data and ports on all interfaces are erased from the card and the screen. Release Notes for Cisco ONS 15327 Release 3.3 OL-2671-01...

    Span colors can be selected from color swatches on the Circuit pane of the Preferences dialog box. Firewall Access In Release 3.3, workstations can access the ONS 15327 using a firewall-compliant connection. Specify the port to connect through in the Firewall pane of the Preferences dialog box. Loopback Indication CTC provides a visual indication for ports, circuits, and circuit records that are involved in a loopback.

    ONS 15327 Release 3.3 documentation can be viewed in an online help window accessed through the CTC Help menu. The help is installed from the ONS 15327 Release 3.3 software CD or the documentation CD, using the new CTC Setup Wizard. The help window includes a table of contents and an index in frames adjacent to the body text.

    PC configuration in most subnetting environments. In combination with static route support, the craft PC can work with an ONS 15327 even when multiple nodes on the same DCC share a subnet and other crafts are connected. DHCP relay support includes support for User Datagram Protocol (UDP) and listening on Port 67 (the standard BOOTP/DHCP port).
