96-Channel Amplifier (AMP1)

 

The 96-Channel Amplifier module integrates two erbium-doped optical amplifiers to provide bi-directional amplification of DWDM optical signals in a point-to-point configuration. The amplifier is optimized for 10-Gbps, 25-Gbps, and 100-Gbps signals. It includes an embedded optical supervisory channel (OSC) used for span loss control.

AMP1 Latches

The top and bottom latches of the AMP1 have a spring-loaded locking mechanism. Both latches must be fully closed and locked for proper module operation.

Installing an AMP1 Module

Use this procedure to install a 96-Channel Amplifier (AMP1).

Prerequisites:

  • If you have pre-provisioned the module, ensure the module is administratively enabled. If the module is not administratively enabled, the module will not be acknowledged by the CMM. For information on how to enable the module, see the BTI7800 Software Configuration Guide.

  • If you have not pre-provisioned the module and you are relying on auto-provisioning, then the system will automatically provision and enable the module for you. You do not need to manually enable the module in this case.

Tools Required

  • Number 2 Phillips screwdriver

Note

Be familiar with the site, safety, and installation guidelines described in Module Installation and Removal Guidelines.

  1. Remove the filler panel from the slot into which you are installing the module and store it in a safe place for future use.
  2. Remove the module from its antistatic bag, holding it by its edges and faceplate to prevent damage to the module circuitry.

    Visually inspect the module, including the pins and connectors that attach to the backplane, for signs of damage before installation.

  3. Install the module.
    1. Ensure the latches are in the open position by rotating the top and bottom latches such that they point straight out. See AMP1 Latches.

    2. Position the module.

      • BTI7814: Position the module vertically so that the faceplate is toward you and the latches are on the left side.

      • BTI7802: Position the module horizontally so that the faceplate is toward you and the latches are on the bottom.

    3. Align the module with the slot guides.

    4. Insert the module edges in the slot guides and carefully slide the module until it contacts the backplane.

    5. Press firmly on a part of the faceplate away from the latches. The latches close by themselves as the module is seated. Take care not to pinch your fingers as the latches close.

    6. Lock the latches by closing the latches until the locking mechanism springs shut.

      When the latches are in the locked position, the latches cannot be opened without squeezing the spring-loaded locking mechanism to disengage the lock from the module faceplate.

  4. Carefully tighten the faceplate thumbscrews.

Removing an AMP1 Module

Use this procedure to remove a 96-Channel Amplifier (AMP1) from a chassis.

Prerequisites:

  • Ensure the module is administratively disabled. When the module is administratively disabled, the hot-swap LED shows a solid blue. For information on how to disable the 96-Channel Amplifier, see the BTI7800 Software Configuration Guide.

Tools Required

  • Number 2 Phillips screwdriver

  • Antistatic bag

Note

Be familiar with the site, safety, and installation guidelines described in Module Installation and Removal Guidelines.

  1. Ensure the hot-swap LED is solid blue.
  2. Move fibers aside as needed to get clear access to the module.
  3. Disconnect all fibers from the module.Note

    Ensure that the fibers are protected with protective caps while disconnected.

  4. Loosen the two faceplate thumbscrews located at each end of the module. They should spring out freely when fully loosened. Use a screwdriver if necessary.
  5. Squeeze the spring-loaded locking mechanism to disengage the latch from the module faceplate, and pull the latches to the open and unlocked position to unseat the module. See AMP1 Latches.
  6. Gently slide the module out of its slot and place it in the antistatic bag.

    Handle the module by its edges and faceplate.

  7. If the slot is to remain unoccupied, install a filler panel.
