Enabling OSC Forwarding on the TCX1000-RDM20

 

The TCX1000-RDM20 is capable of providing connectivity to a remote site through the Optical service channel (OSC). OSC forwarding must be enabled when the TCX1000-RDM20 is connected to a remote site without DCN access or is connected to a TCX1000-ILA. See the TCX Series Optical Transport System Feature Guide at https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/release-independent/tcx/information-products/pathway-pages/tcx1000-index.html for detailed information on network requirements, rules and restrictions, and configuration examples.

After you have completed assigning the IP address, you can enable OSC. OSC forwarding is disabled by default.

See Table 1 for when you must enable or disable OSC on the TCX1000-RDM20:

Table 1: OSC Forwarding Conditions

Enable OSC Forwarding If

Do not enable OSC Forwarding If

The TCX1000-RDM20 line port is connected to a TCX1000-ILA.

The TCX1000-RDM20 line port is connected to a TCX1000-RDM20 that is on a different IP subnet.

The TCX1000-RDM20 line port is connected to a TCX1000-RDM20 without DCN access.

To enable OSC forwarding on the TCX1000-RDM20 from the CLI:

  1. Enter the user ID:superuser.
  2. Enter the password: <password>.
  3. Check the status of the OSC forwarding by entering the sfp show osc_sfp_port port 1 command. The sample output below shows that OSC forwarding is disabled.
    user@host# sfp show osc_sfp_port port 1
  4. Enter the sfp config osc_sfp_port stp-group 1 2 command to enable remote communication and to enable OSC forwarding.
    user@host# sfp config osc_sfp_port stp-group 1 2
  5. Verify the OSC forwarding is enabled by using the sfp show osc_sfp_port port 1 command.
    user@host# sfp show osc_sfp_port port 1
  6. Enter the restart warm command to apply the changes by initiating a warm restart of the TCX1000-RDM20.
    user@host#restart warm

    The TCX1000-RDM20 reboots.
