Connecting Fiber-Optic Array Cables to the TXP-F13 SIBs

 

Each TXP-F13 SIB has 8 ports: 4 ports labeled EVEN and four ports labeled ODD.

The following procedure assumes that you have labeled both ends of each fiber-optic array cable that you plan to use. After you connect a cable, route it into the cable management system before you connect another cable.

Note

Do not connect the fiber-optic array cables to the T1600 routers at this time.

To connect the fiber-optic array cables to the TXP-F13 SIB ports:

  1. Gather the needed tools and part.
    • Dust-free resealable plastic bags for temporary storage of switching plane cable dust covers

    • Blank labels in the accessory box for switching plane cables

    • Electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding wrist strap

  2. Disable the TXP-F13 SIB by pressing the ONLINE/OFFLINE button.
  3. Using the labels on the fiber-optic array cables, locate the four fiber-optic array cables that will be connected to the TXP-F13 SIB.
  4. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  5. Ensure that the TXP-F13 SIB port corresponds to the label you attached to the end of the cable.
  6. Remove the dust cover from the TXP-F13 SIB port. Store the dust cover in a dust-free resealable plastic bag.Caution

    If you do not use dust covers, small deposits of oil, dust, and debris can enter the ports and cable connectors. If a dust cover is missing from a port or cable, clean it before you connect the cable.

  7. Remove the dust cover from the fiber-optic array cable. Store the dust cover in a dust-free resealable plastic bag.
  8. Align the cable connector with the corresponding TXP-F13 SIB port, and carefully press cable connector into the port until it stops. The cable connector and adapter are keyed to ensure proper mating. On the even side, connect and route the cable labeled D, before you connect the cable labeled C, and so on. On the odd side, connect and route the cable labeled A, before you connect the cable labeled B, and so on.
  9. Pull the latch for the cable management clamp (Figure 1) toward you to release it.
  10. Place the fiber-optic array cable upward into the labeled slot A, B, C, or D for that cable. Route the cable upward toward the comb assembly on top of the chassis Figure 2), and press it into the divider. Caution

    You must maintain a minimum bend radius of 4 in. (10.2 cm) short term, and 3 in. (7.6 cm) long term.

  11. Arrange the fiber-optic array cables so that they do not interfere with system airflow and maintenance access.

    For an illustration of air flow through the TX Matrix Plus router, see TX Matrix Plus Cooling System Description.

  12. Repeat the procedure for the remaining fiber-optic array cables that connect to the TXP-F13 SIB.
  13. Enable the TXP-F13 SIB by pressing the ONLINE/OFFLINE button.
  14. Route the other end of the fiber-optic array cables to the T1600 router, but do not connect the cables to the T1600 router until instructed to do so.

Caution

Plastic wrap-ties can damage or crimp the fiber-optic array cables (see Figure 5). We recommend that you use soft band straps to secure fiber-optic array cables.

Note

For the configuration, slots 2, 5, 10, 13, 14, and 15 are not supported.
