These components are located on the TXP-F13 faceplate:

  • Eight high-speed fiber-optic links connect to two T1600 routers in the routing matrix. The left four ports are labeled EVEN and provide connections to one even-numbered LCC—LCC0 or LCC2. The right four ports are labeled ODD and provide connections to one odd-numbered LCC—LCC1 or LCC3. The four ports on each side are labeled CBL A, CBL B, CBL C and CBL D.

  • Three ONLINE/OFFLINE buttons are located in the middle of the TXP-F13 SIB.

    • The ONLINE/OFFLINE button labeled LCC EVEN brings the corresponding interface and TXP-T1600 SIB on the even T1600 router online and offline.

    • The ONLINE/OFFLINE button labeled LCC ODD brings the corresponding interface and TXP-T1600 SIB on the odd T1600 router online and offline.

    • The ONLINE/OFFLINE button in the center labeled SIB brings the TXP-F13 SIB online and offline.

  • Three status LEDs, labeled ACTIVE, OK and FAIL, located below the ONLINE/OFFLINE buttons.

  • Two port LEDs, labeled LINK and RxPWR, located to the right of each TXP-F13 port.

Three LEDs, labeled OK , FAIL, and ACTIVE, are located on the craft interface; they show the status of the link to the T1600 router.
