Configuring the IP Address of an Optical Inline Amplifier

 

To enable optical supervisory channel (OSC) communications and manage optical inline amplifiers (ILA)s in the amplifier chain through the Junos CLI, you need to configure each optical ILA with a unique IP address. This address is used for OSC communications to and from the anchor IPLC, as well as for configuring certain optical ILA parameters through the Junos OS CLI. Use this procedure when you are using the PTX3000 integrated photonic line system with the optical ILA to enable OSC communication across the optical network or to enable management of certain optical ILA parameters through the Junos OS CLI.

Tip

Remember that all communication to and from an optical ILA is through the anchor IPLC, so when you configure any options on an optical ILA, you must specify the FPC number in which the anchor IPLC resides.

Note

To configure any other optical ILA options, use the login procedures describe in the Optical Inline Amplifier Hardware Guide.

Before you begin, make sure you complete the following tasks:

  1. Configure the IP address of the anchor IPLC. See, Configuring the IP Address of the Anchor IPLC

  2. Configure the MAC address of the anchor IPLC. See, Configuring the MAC Address of the Anchor IPLC

  3. Configure the IPLC as the anchor in the amplifier chain. See, Configuring the Anchor IPLC of the Amplifier Chain

  4. Configure a unique identification number for the optical ILA. See Configuring the Optical ILA Identification Number

To configure the IP address of the optical ILA:

  1. Specify the slot in which the IPLC resides and access the IPLC amplifier chain configuration hierarchy.

    For example:

  2. Specify the IP address for the optical ILA interface.
  3. Verify the configuration.

  4. Save the configuration.
