    Location Identifiers

    Location identifiers are used in various commands to specify where components reside in the system.

    Interfaces

    Identifier

    UFM3

    UFM4

    All interfaces

    Non-multiplexed: chassis/slot/subslot/port

    Multiplexed: chassis/slot/subslot/port.sub-interface

    UFM6

    All interfaces except for opticalChannel

    Port group 1 (non-multiplexed): chassis/slot/subslot/port/subport

    Port group 2 (multiplexed): chassis/slot/subslot/port/subport.channel.tributary.sub-interface

    UFM6

    Table 5: Parameter Definitions and Ranges

    Parameter

    Definition

    Range

    chassis

    The chassis number.

    See Chassis Number Ranges.

    slot

    The slot within the chassis.

    See Slot Identifier Ranges.

    subslot

    The subslot identifier within the module.

    See Subslot Identifier Ranges.

    port

    The port identifier within the subslot or module.

    See Port Identifier Ranges.

    subport

    This applies to UFM6 only.

    In port group 1, depending on the transceiver, each port can be physically divided into subports using a fiber breakout device. These subports connect to external equipment.

    In port group 2, the conceptual 400-Gbps port is divided into two physical subports on the UFM faceplate.

    UFM6:

    • Port group 1 subports: 1 through 4

      Note: Subports 2 through 4 are only applicable for transceivers that require a fiber breakout device.

    • Port group 2 subports: 1, 2

    channel

    The meaning of an optical channel depends on the context:

    • UFM6: The optical channel in a subport in port group 2
    • ROADM: The optical channel that bears user traffic.

    UFM6:

    • Optical channel in a subport in port group 2: 1

    ROADM:

    • Alphanumeric string up to 32 characters long

    tributary

    This parameter specifies the tributary within an optical channel on a UFM6.

    A tributary is a signal that is modulated onto an optical channel. Each optical channel on a UFM6 can carry up to two OTU4 tributaries.

    UFM6:

    • Port group 2 subport optical channel OTU4 tributaries: 1, 2

    sub-interface

    A sub-interface is a lower-order ODU multiplexed within a higher-order ODU. ODU4 signals on all UFMs can be configured to contain multiplexed lower-order ODUs.

    UFM3, UFM4:

    • ODU2 sub-interface within an ODU4: 1 through 10

    UFM6:

    • ODU2e sub-interface within an ODU4: 1 through 10

    group

    This parameter specifies the protection group for WPS.

    WPS:

    • WPS group: 1 through 4
