Enabling or Disabling the Optical Supervisory Channel Laser

 

When you need to perform maintenance or troubleshooting, you can disable the optical supervisory channel laser on the IPLC module.

Best Practice

Anytime you need to disconnect or connect the fiber span from the Line IN and Line OUT ports on the IPLC module, we recommend you disable the optical supervisory channel laser and the erbium-doped fiber amplifiers on the IPLC.

Always refer to the PTX3000 Packet Transport Router Hardware Guide when connecting or disconnecting cables on the IPLC modules. See PTX3000 Packet Transport Router Hardware Guide.
