Configuring the Optical Supervisory Channel Across the Amplifier Chain of the PTX3000 Integrated Photonic Line System

 

The optical supervisory channel (OSC) of the PTX3000 integrated photonic line system automates control of the optical layer by providing control and management of the remote IPLC. If you are using Juniper Networks optical inline amplifiers (ILA)s in the amplifier chain, this automated control is extend to the entire amplifier chain. This procedure describes how to configure the OSC on both the PTX3000 integrated photonic line system and the optical ILA.

To configure the OSC in the PTX3000 integrated photonic line system and amplifier chain:

  1. Configure one of the IPLC modules in the line system as the anchor IPLC, see Configuring the Anchor IPLC of the Amplifier Chain.
  2. Configure a unique IP address on the anchor IPLC module, see Configuring the IP Address of the Anchor IPLC.
  3. Configure the MAC address of the anchor IPLC, see Configuring the MAC Address of the Anchor IPLC.
  4. Configure a unique identification number for each optical ILA in the amplifier chain, see Configuring the Optical ILA Identification Number.
  5. Configure a unique IP address for each optical ILA in the amplifier chain, see Configuring the IP Address of an Optical Inline Amplifier.
