Nodal Management for BTI7000 Series Network Elements

 

Nodal management for the BTI7000 Series network elements is generally performed using the proNX 900. In some situations, however, it might be possible for you to use PSM to configure the BTI7000 Series network elements directly.

This section describes how to launch the proNX 900 from PSM, and then describes the nodal provisioning that you can perform directly using PSM.

Launching the proNX 900 Node Controller

Use this procedure to launch the proNX 900 Node Controller.

The proNX 900 Node Controller is the nodal manager for the BTI7000 Series network elements.

Note

The proNX 900 Node Controller might not be supported on all PSM Client platforms. See the BTI7000 Series Common Equipment Installation Guide for a list of platforms that support the proNX 900 Node Controller.

Prerequisites:

  • The proNX 900 Node Controller software that is compatible with the network elements in your network must be installed on your local computer.

  1. To launch the proNX 900, right-click a network element in the Network tree view or Topology Map view, and choose Node Controller.

    The proNX 900 Node Controller splash screen displays. This procedure is complete.

    If you get an error message indicating that the PSM Client cannot find the proNX 900 application software (executable file) on your local computer, configure the proNX 900 as described in Configuring the proNX 900 Node Controller.

    Note

    Information on how to use the proNX 900 can be found in the BTI7000 Series documentation suite.

Provisioning the BTI7000 Series Dynamic Optical Layer (DOL)

The BTI7000 Series Dynamic Optical Layer provides reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexing, reach extension, and end-to-end service management for the BTI7000 Series optical network. The Dynamic Optical Layer consists of ROADM modules that provide wavelength routing, line amplifier modules that provide reach extension, and passive multiplexer/demultiplexer modules that provide wavelength access. A DOL node can be configured to be a channel equalizing terminal, a channel equalizing line node, a line amplifier node, or a ROADM node.

Before you can provision DOL, you must first add optical modules to the shelf. To add a module, follow the steps in Adding a module and select the desired module from the PEC drop-down list. Once all the modules are added, use the procedures in this section to create the desired optical nodal function.

Once the nodal function is created, you can activate DOL services using the procedures described in Optical Services.

Provisioning Optical Groups

An optical group is a representation of an optical node (i.e. a collection of modules that together provide a specific nodal function in the optical network). An optical node can be a DOL or a non-DOL node.

The following optical group types are supported:

  • NON_EQUALIZING_TERM - This is a non-channel equalizing terminal that consists of non-equalizing amplifiers that do not support DOL.

  • CHANNEL_EQUALIZING_TERMINAL - This is a channel equalizing terminal that consists of DOL equipment.

  • LINE_AMPLIFIER_NODE - This is a non-channel equalizing line node that consists of DOL equipment.

  • CHANNEL_EQUALIZING_LINE_NODE - This is a channel equalizing terminal that consists of DOL equipment.

  • ROADM - This is a ROADM node that consists of DOL equipment.

Configuring a Split ROADM Node

Use this procedure to configure a split ROADM node on a BTI7000 Series system.

A split ROADM node is a highly survivable configuration where each ROADM module in a BTI7000 Series ROADM node is located in a separate network element, managed by a separate management module. While these network elements are distinct in every other aspect, PSM treats this combination as a single ROADM node during optical service activation.

Creating a split ROADM node is essentially a hardware installation function where the ROADM modules are installed on separate network elements and connected together by fiber over their C2 ports. There is no provisioning required except to enable PSM to recognize the split ROADM node. In order for PSM to recognize the split ROADM node as a single ROADM node, the Remote ID configuration on the C2 ports of the ROADM modules must point to each other. This is shown in the following figure. By configuring the Remote IDs on the C2 ports in this manner, PSM is able to recognize this as a split ROADM node configuration.

A split ROADM node can be configured for the CHANNEL_EQUALIZING_LINE_NODE and ROADM optical group types.

  1. Follow the procedure in Setting the Remote ID on a ROADM C2 port to set the Remote ID on a ROADM C2 port.

    Configure the Remote ID to point to the C2 port of the second ROADM module. For example:

    By selecting the Bidirectional option, PSM automatically configures the C2 port at the other end to point back to this C2 port.

Editing OSC Parameters in an Optical Group

Use this procedure to edit OSC parameters on a BTI7000 Series network element. The optical service channel (OSC) is used as a communications medium for control information between optical equipment at both ends of a line span.

  1. Expand the network element in the Network tree.
  2. Expand the Optical Groups to see the optical groups on that NE.
  3. Expand an optical group to see the equipment in that group.
