Configuring the MAC Address of the Anchor IPLC


To enable optical supervisory channel (OSC) communications and manage optical inline amplifiers (ILA)s in the amplifier chain, you need to configure the MAC address of both the anchor IPLC and the IPLC in the remote PTX3000 chassis. Use this procedure when you are using the PTX3000 integrated photonic line system with the optical ILA to enable OSC communication across the entire optical amplifier chain or to enable management of certain optical ILA parameters through the Junos OS CLI.


Be sure to perform this procedure on both the anchor IPLC and the remote IPLC.

To configure the MAC address of the IPLC OSC management interface:

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

    For example:

  2. Specify the MAC address for the IPLC OSC management interface.
  3. Verify the configuration.

  4. Save the configuration.
