    Transport Services

    A transport service provides SONET/SDH, OTN, or physical Ethernet connectivity between transport service endpoints. A transport service endpoint is a client interface on transport equipment.

    PSM allows you to manage transport services for BTI7800 Series network elements. The service spans between UFM client interfaces through a series of cross-connects across the network.

    Additionally, PSM allows you to manage the transport service component of a BTI7000 optical service that has BTI7800, MX Series or PTX Series router or QFX Series switch endpoints.

    Visualizing a Transport Service

    Use this procedure to visualize a transport service in a BTI7800 network or a transport service with BTI7800, MX Series, PTX Series, or QFX Series endpoints across a BTI7000 optical network.

    Note: Not all transport services are explicitly created. If you create an optical service with BTI7800, MX Series, PTX Series, or QFX Series endpoints across a BTI7000 optical network, PSM automatically creates the resulting transport service between the interface endpoints. If you create an optical service across a BTI7000 optical network and subsequently configure the Remote IDs to point to supported interfaces on BTI7800, MX Series, PTX Series, or QFX Series endpoints, PSM also automatically creates the resulting transport service between the interface endpoints.

    1. To see a summary of a transport service, hover over the service in the Network tree under the Transport branch (Figure 1 and Figure 2).

    2. To see a transport service in its own panel, select it in the Network tree under the Transport branch.

      Note: If this is your first time visualizing this service, you will see the administratively-defined default layout if it exists. If a default layout does not exist for this service, then you will see the layout that PSM automatically generates. See 11.

      Note: If this is your second or subsequent time visualizing this service, you will see the layout that existed when you last exited this service view.

    3. If a link in the transport service is running over an underlying optical service, the link is shown with a icon. This is how the transport service component of a BTI7000 optical service with transponder interface endpoints is displayed.

      For example:

      If you right-click the link and select Optical Service (or right-click the service in the Network tree and select Navigate >Optical Service), PSM displays the underlying optical service in the Optical service view:

      To go back to the Transport service view, select the Transport tab as you normally do when you navigate between views. For more information on the Optical service view, see Visualizing an optical service.

    4. To see the interface associated with a service endpoint, right-click the endpoint and select Navigate >Interface.

      The interface associated with the endpoint is highlighted in the Network tree.

    5. To see details on a network element, link, or port, hover over the network element, link, or port.
    6. To see the equipment on a network element, double-click the NE.

      The equipment and connections are shown in a zoomed-in view.

    7. To change the size of the service view:
      1. Right-click the background and select Zoom In to increase the view size
      2. Right-click the background and select Zoom Out to decrease the view size
      3. Right-click the background and select Reset Zoom to return the view size to its original size

      Alternatively, you can use your mouse scroll wheel.

    8. Right-click a network element and select Network Element to see the regular NE menu options.
    9. To move elements in this view, drag elements to the desired location.
    10. To move all of the ports and switches in the service, choose Select All and drag the service within the window.
    11. You can save the current layout as the default, or revert to the default, or revert to the layout that PSM automatically generates.
      1. To save the current layout as the default layout for this service, right-click the background and select Save Layout as Default.

        Note: You must have administrator privileges to execute this command.

        Once the current layout is saved as the default, subsequent users who visualize this service will be able to see the current layout.

      2. To reset the current layout to the default, right-click the background and select Reset Layout to Default.
      3. To reset the current layout to the layout that PSM automatically generates, right-click the background and select Reset Layout.
    12. To save the service screen view as an image:
      1. Select Save Service Image.

        The Save Service Image dialog appears.

      2. Navigate to the desired folder and enter the filename.

        The default file format is png. To save the file in jpg format, enter .jpg at the end of the filename.

      3. Click Save.

    You have successfully completed this procedure.

    Activating a Transport Service

    Use this procedure to configure and activate a transport service for BTI7800 Series network elements.

    In general, a transport service connects two client interfaces together through a series of cross-connects across a network. However, a service can also consist of a single cross-connect where both ends of the service reside on a single UFM.

    You can configure and activate a transport service between BTI7800 Series network elements only. See Table 1 for the supported client interface endpoints. The A and Z designations in the table are used only to distinguish between the two service endpoints. They are assigned arbitrarily and are interchangeable. For more information on cross-connects, refer to the BTI7800 Series Software Configuration Guide.

    Note: The UFM6 line port is represented by an optical channel (och) interface. The optical channel can contain up to two OTU4 signals. In order to interwork with UFM3 and UFM4 OTU4 line interfaces, you must configure the optical channel interface on the UFM6 for a single OTU4 signal using QPSK modulation. For more information, see Nodal Management for BTI7800 Series Network Elements.
