Optical ILA Management Panel


The optical ILA management panel is found on the front panel (see Figure 1).

You manage the optical ILA by using the command-line interface (CLI), which is accessible through the console and out-of-band management ports on the management panel. In addition, the front panel has system status LEDs that alert you to minor or major alarms or other issues with the amplifier. Figure 1 shows the management panel in detail.

You can also manage the optical ILA through Connectivity Services Director (CSD), which is a Junos Space application developed to manage the optical functionality provided by optical ILAs and integrated photonic line cards (IPLCs) that are installed in the PTX3000 routers. CSD is managed over a data communications network (DCN). CSD presents a topological network view in an intuitive, comprehensive, and cohesive manner that enables you to visualize optical sites, links, and services and a site view that provides status, configuration, alarms/faults, and performance monitoring functionality on the optical interfaces. By using CSD, you can perform the following tasks for an optical ILA:

  • View the optical interface specifications that are currently applied on the device, such as wavelength and power.

  • Modify the existing parameters of the optical port to suit your network needs or resolve any alarms caused by certain interface settings.

  • View the active alarms generated for the optical interface to analyze and resolve the condition that triggered the alarm on the device.

  • Configure threshold-crossing alarms (TCAs) for the optical interface.

  • View the performance monitoring details in statistical and graphical formats for the optical interface.
