Configuring and Managing Optical PIC Details for Effective Provisioning


Instead of using Junos OS CLI statements and operational commands to configure OTN PIC settings and view the configured parameters, you can view an image of the OTN PIC using Connectivity Services Director to obtain an intuitive and high-level understanding of the settings and alarms. This view enables you to modify the OTN PIC settings to suit your network deployment needs in a simplified and optimal manner. Because the important OTN PIC settings can be configured alongside the visual representation of the entire chassis that is displayed, this method of managing the OTN PIC settings provides a consolidated and cohesive interface for easy administration of the network.

You can perform the following tasks in this dialog box:

  • View the optical interface specifications that are currently applied on the device, such as the PIC state and PIC type

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

To configure the full C-band International Telecommunication Union (ITU)-Grid tunable optics for 10-Gigabit Ethernet or 100-Gigabit Ethernet dense wavelength- division multiplexing (DWDM) OTN PICs:

  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 device for which you want to define the optical port 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 OTN PIC, such as a 2-port 100-Gigabit Ethernet OTN PIC or a 100-Gigabit Ethernet PIC installed in a PTX Series router.

    The Component Info dialog box is displayed on the right pane with the PIC specifications.

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

    The configuration settings that pertain to the optical interface are displayed in the PIC Status/Config dialog box.

  7. In the PIC Details section, do the following:
    1. From the PIC State list, select On Line to turn on the PIC so that the PIC is running or Off Line to turn off the PIC so that the PIC is powered down. State is displayed only when a PIC resides in the slot.

    2. From the PIC Type list, select the type of PIC, such as 2X100GE CFP2 OTN, 24X10GE SFPP OTN, 2x100G DWDM OTN, or 2x100GE CFP.

    3. In the PIC version field, the PIC hardware version is displayed.

    4. In the Uptime field, the number of days, hours, minutes, and seconds for which the PIC has been online is displayed.

  8. In the Transport State section, the following fields are displayed:
    • Admin State—The administrative state of the port—In Service or Out of Service.

    • Operational State—The operational status of the port—link up (UP) or link down (DOWN).

  9. Click Update to save the configured settings. Alternatively, click Cancel to discard the modified settings.

You can click the Refresh (rotating arrow icon) button at the top of the dialog box to enable the latest settings be retrieved from the device and displayed.
