Viewing Optical Utilization from the Topology Map
Use this procedure to view optical utilization in a DOL or ROADM network.
The network elements making up the DOL or ROADM network have been placed onto the map. For information on how to do this, see Placing Sites on the Topology Map.
- Click on the Map icon in the left sidebar.
The topology Map is displayed, showing existing sites and links between sites.
- Click on the Menu icon in the upper left corner of the topology Map.
- Select Optical Utilization from the menu.
The Optical Utilization information box appears.
This box shows the number of wavelengths used at each site compared to the total wavelength capacity. A wavelength is considered used if it is added/dropped to a multiplexer/demultiplexer at that site, or if it is configured for passthrough at that site.
