dol fiber-conn

 

Syntax

Description

This command configures a DOL fiber connection between two ports. If the fiber connection does not exist, the fiber connection is created.

A fiber connection represents the physical fiber connection between modules within a DOL node (intra-nodal), or the physical fiber connection between modules across nodes (inter-nodal). Fiber connections are mandatory, and allow the system to check the provisioned connectivity against the actual physical connectivity.

Note

The local connection endpoints must exist before you can create the corresponding fiber connection.

Note

For inter-nodal connections (and for intra-nodal connections on a split ROADM node), the far end node is referred to by its management IP address.

Parameter

Description

Range

Default Value

fiber-conn endpoint endpoint

The two endpoints of the physical fiber connection. The fiber connections can be intra-nodal or inter-nodal.

For intra-nodal connections, you can configure a fiber connection between the following ports:

  • add/drop fiber connections:

    • a client port on a ROADM to/from a line port on a multiplexer/demultiplexer

    • a client port on a multiplexer/demultiplexer to/from an interface on a UFM

  • passthrough fiber connection:

    • a client port on a ROADM to/from a client port on another ROADM

    • a client port on an ILA to/from a client port on another ILA

For inter-nodal connections, you can configure a fiber connection between the following ports:

  • a line port on the local ROADM to/from a line port on the far-end ROADM

  • a line port on the local ILA to/from a line port on the far-end ILA

The following are the valid endpoints for intra-nodal connections:

  • an existing ROADM or ILA client port (for example, port:1/6/0/C2 or port:1/8/0/C1@10.1.1.102)

  • an existing multiplexer/demultiplexer client port (for example, port:0/1/0/C40)

  • an existing multiplexer/demultiplexer line port (for example, port:0/1/0/L1)

  • an existing OTU4 or 100GbE interface on a UFM (for example, otu4:1/10/1/1)

The following are the valid endpoints for inter-nodal connections:

  • an existing local ROADM or ILA line port (for example, port:1/6/0/L1)

  • a far-end ROADM or ILA line port (for example, port:1/6/0/L1@10.1.1.1)

The IP address, when present, is the management IP address of the network element at the other end of the fiber. It is present in intra-nodal fiber connections on a split ROADM node, and in all inter-nodal fiber connections.

None.

fe-im-mon {true|false}

Enables or disables far end identifier mismatch monitoring for fiber connections.

When enabled, the far end node identification mismatch alarm is raised when the configured fiber connection endpoints do not match the actual endpoints.

true

false

false

fiber-type type

The type of fiber attached to the port. This attribute is applicable to inter-nodal fiber connections only.

leaf: Large Effective Area Fiber (LEAF®)

ndsf: non-dispersion shifted fiber

ssmf: standard single mode fiber

teralight: TeraLight™

twrs: TrueWave® Reduced Slope

ndsf

Additional Information

You must configure all the intra-nodal fiber connections in an optical path before you can create the optical cross-connects that go over that optical path.

You cannot delete a fiber connection if an optical cross-connect exists over that path.

When creating a fiber connection between a UFM interface and a client port on a multiplexer/demultiplexer, the configured frequency on the UFM interface must match the frequency on the multiplexer/demultiplexer client port.
