  2. Refer to DOL OCH power alarm thresholds to determine whether the optical power transmitted is lower than the range specified for operation.
  3. If the optical power transmitted is too low, ensure that the upstream fiber connections are intact, thoroughly clean, and correctly connected.
  4. Check for alarms on the DOL OCH.
    • If the alarm clears, you have completed this procedure.
