Configuring the IPLC to Add or Drop Wavelengths to an Optical Interface on the Same Chassis


This topic provides a procedure for switching a wavelength present on the local IPLC modules to an optical interface on the same chassis.

Before you begin, complete the following tasks:

To configure the IPLC base module to switch a wavelength to an optical interface on the same chassis:

  1. From the Junos Space user interface, click the Build icon on the Connectivity Services Director banner.

    The workspaces that are applicable to Build mode are displayed on the Tasks pane.

  2. From the View selector, select Device View.

    The functionalities that you can configure in this view are displayed.

  3. From the Device View pane, click the plus sign (+) next to the My Network tree to expand the tree and select the PTX300 router for which you want to define the optical IPLC settings.

    The network tree is expanded and the selected device is highlighted.

  4. From the Tasks pane, select Device Management > View Physical Inventory.

    An image of the device is displayed on the right pane.

  5. In the image of the device, select an optical IPLC—for example, an optical IPLC installed in a PTX3000 router.

    The Component Info dialog box is displayed. At the lower part of the dialog box, the Equipment, Status/Config, Performance, and Line Connectivity tabs are displayed.

  6. Click the Status/Config tab at the bottom of the dialog box.

    The IPLC Line dialog box is displayed on the right pane with the configuration settings that pertain to the IPLC.

  7. Specify the FPC or PIC slot in which the IPLC base module resides by selecting the slot in the Chassis View.

    For example, if the IPLC base module resides in slot 1, select the IPLC 1 component in the image of the chassis.

  8. Specify the wavelength you want to switch and the name of the physical optical interface to which you want to switch it. For example, if you want to switch wavelength 1550.12 on the IPLC in slot 1 to the optical interface on FPC slot 3, PIC 0, port 0, in the Wavelength Configuration section, select the Show All Wavelengths check box, and beside the 1550.12 row in the wavelength column, select switch from the drop-down menu in the configuration column of the table for the corresponding wavelength.
  9. From the end-point column, click in the cell corresponding to the wavelength of 1550.12, and then click the drop-down arrow.

    From the drop-down menu, select et-3/0/0 to which you want the wavelength of the IPLC base module to be switched.

  10. Click Update to save the specified configuration settings.
