Table 1-1 (continued)


User access and supported operations

User Access Classes Privileges

ADMIN The ADMIN can:


create and delete login access for the network element.
access network element configurable parameters such as mode,
location, contact as well as management parameters such as
Ethernet/router IP address/masks, OSPF parameters.
change other user account passwords.
can perform all other operations as OPERATOR2

Note: The list of users of the network element is visible for all the users. Password is not visible to any
user including ADMIN. Password can be modified by ADMIN and the user himself.

Up to hundred user accounts can be created on the 6110 network element.


Refer to Table 1-1 on page 1-1 for guidelines on user access and supported
operations. Refer to Table 1-2 for guidelines on setting the User Name and
Password for a user account.

Table 1-2 lists the user name and password details for user accounts on the
network element.

Security 1-3

Lockout users
The users with Admin privilege level can disable a user account by setting the
User lockout parameter. When the user is locked out during an active
session, the authentication information stored in the cache is used for the
session till the user logs out. The next time the user tries to log into the
network element, access is denied.

User-Lockout
User-Lockout is usually done to prevent password guessing, unauthorized
access to network element.

Admin have to configure the following parameters to the network element:

Max Invalid Login attempts:


The maximum invalid login attempts, after which the user would get locked
out.

Lockout Time:
Time duration during which the locked users cannot connect to network
element.

During this lockout time, the authorized users even cannot connect to network
element. After the lockout time expires, the user authentication would proceed
as normal.

Attention: in User lockout feature RADIUS users with ADMIN privilege can
be locked through debug interfaces, namely telnet, ssh, ftp,
RADIUS user, created with same name as LOCAL user will not be locked
out, if the LOCAL user was an ADMIN user.

RADIUS Server
Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) is an IETF protocol for
communication between RADIUS clients on remote network elements and a
RADIUS server. The RADIUS server provides centralized authentication,
authorization and accounting (AAA) services.

When RADIUS setting is enabled on the 6110 network element, the network
element will use the authentication details configured on a remote server
rather than the authentication details present on the network element.

A primary and secondary RADIUS server is present. When the primary server
is not reachable, the secondary server is used for authentication. The
secondary RADIUS server will be used only if the primary is not reachable. If

Release 5.0 323-1853-310 Standard Issue 3
Copyright 2011-2014 Ciena Corporation May 2014
1-4 Security

the primary is reachable, but the user name is not authenticated (incorrect
password or username missing), the authentication process will fail
independent of the secondary server.

A caching mechanism is implemented in the 6110 network element so that


every command or web-page access does not go to the RADIUS server(s) for
authentication. Hence an already logged in session does not terminate if
connectivity to the RADIUS server is lost or if username or password
information is changed on the RADIUS server. However, when the RADIUS
server is reachable, the cached authentication information is valid only for an
hour, after which authentication failed message is displayed and the user is
prompted to login again with the new username and password. If the RADIUS
server is not reachable, the active session continues.

The cache expiry is not applicable for TL1 sessions. TL1 sessions will
continue to be valid unless explicitly logged out or timed out of the session.

Attention: If the password has been changed in the RADIUS server, and if
a user uses the new password to log into the 6110 network element, all
logged in users will have to re-login with the new password.

Blocking Ports
The open ports to network element might be unused and can be vulnerable to
attacks from outside. Port scanners such as nmap utility can be used to
determine the open ports on the network element. The hacker can stop/affect
Network element functionalities by detecting the vulnerabilities in any of these
open ports. Admin should be able to block such vulnerable ports.

Nessus Scan and SecureScout are some of the tools which are used to
determine vulnerabilities in the open ports.

Blocking IPs
Admin can block the IP's so that it disallows complete access to Network
element from that source IP. This is useful whenever Network administrator
needs to block the IP Address from which invalid login attempts or
unauthorized access to Network element are attempted.

Challenge Response Authentication


Challenge-Response Authentication (CHAP) is a method for proving user
identity over an insecure medium without giving any information out to
eavsedroppers that may enable them to identify themselves as user.

When CHAP method is enabled on the 6110 network element, the network
element will use CHAP algorithm.

Security 1-5

The feature enables a secure authentication mechanism which can be used


along with the normal LOCAL/RADIUS authentication mechanisms.

SNMP Agent
From an SNMP point of view, the 6110 is the SNMP agent. SNMP access is
performed through the externally visible IP address assigned at
commissioning time. Port 161 is used to access the SNMP agent. The 6110
SNMP agent supports SNMP v1 or v2c and supports SNMP get operations
for the retrieval of Ethernet PM/OM data using a proprietary MIB.

By default, the SNMP agent is disabled but can be enabled using the Security
menu (see Procedure 1-16 for details). The community string has to be
configured from a security point of view. The SNMP get works even if the
community string is configured as 'public' (default string). (see Procedure 1-17
for details)

Attention: For information on provisioning SNMP traps, refer to SNMP


traps on page 7-3.

Provisioning interfaces 2-

This chapter contains procedures for provisioning traffic interfaces and to


check their operation on the 6110 network element.

6110 supports the following traffic interfaces:


STM-1/OC-3, STM-4/OC-12, and STM-16/OC-48 interfaces
E1/E3/DS1/DS3 interfaces
Ethernet interfaces
WAN interfaces

6110(4x155/2x622M/2x2.5G + 2x155M), a high density enhanced chassis is


a base-circuit pack, which has 4 STM/OC ports capable of being configured
in 2xSTM1/4/16 or OC3/12/48 (configurable) and 2xSTM1/OC3(fixed). The
chassis also has 21xE1/DS1 ports along with 4x10/100T Ports and 1 GE port
on the base circuit pack. It support three base circuit pack mode viz. 1G +
4FE, 1GE + 21 E1 and 4FE + 21E1 + 2xSTM1. If base circuit pack mode has
GE port configured then 2 x STM1 tributary ports will not be available.

2xGE + 8x100BT 1G2 circuit pack is an Ethernet circuit pack. It provides two
GE optical interfaces and eight 8x100 Mbps Ethernet interfaces.

L2PA1G2 (physically identified as 2xGE/FX + 8x10/100BT L2 1G2) circuit


pack is a Layer 2 Packet Aggregation circuit pack with STM8 uplink capacity.
This circuit pack supports two optical ports which can be configured for GE or
Fast Ethernet interfaces. The circuit pack also has eight 10/100BT interfaces.

Provisioning each of these interfaces involves configuring the associated


parameters.

STM/OCn interfaces
For the STM-1/OC-3, STM-4/OC-12 and STM-16/OC-48 interface, in addition
to provisioning the port, you can also provision the mapping structure for the
administrative unit group (AUG/STS-3). The mapping_disable option is used
when there is sharing of bandwidth by more than one channel for the

2-2 Provisioning interfaces

4x155/2x622M/2x2.5G cross-connect controller circuit pack. This feature is


used when the user wants to release the bandwidth provisioned for the
channel.

The 6110 network element allows you to:


provision the performance monitoring thresholds such as the TCA values,
signal degrade, and signal fail for the regenerator section (RS)/section
overhead, multiplex section (MS)/line overhead, higher order path (HP)
and lower order path (LP)
enable or disable the automatic laser shutdown feature
provision the DCN parameters
provision the consequent action for TIM and PLM

The consequent actions for the trace identifier mismatch and payload label
mismatch are:
ignore
report but do not send downstream AIS
report and send downstream AIS

Automatic laser shutdown


The optical channel is equipped with an Automatic laser shutdown (ALS)
mechanism for laser safety reasons. This shuts down the laser transmitter
whenever a remote link is broken. ALS is supported on all optical interfaces.
This shall be provisionable on a per port basis. By default ALS is disabled. The
implementation is as per ITU-T G.664. At receiver port the network element
continuously checks for LOS, that is whether it receives signal from far end. In
case of link failure or fiber cut, it receives LOS. On receiving LOS, laser shuts
down at the transmitter port due to action of ALS. This also results in the laser
shutdown at the far end transmitter port if ALS mode is enabled at the far end
network element.

ALS checks the link periodically by switching on the laser, if in turn signal is
received at receiver port, it switches on the laser automatically. This can be
done in manual or automatic mode. In the automatic mode, it periodically
checks the link after every 90-100 seconds. In manual mode, link needs to be
checked manually. The link can be checked in manual mode either by manual
restart or manual restart test mode. In manual restart, laser which is switched
on by ALS for testing link remains on for two seconds, while in manual restart
for test mode it remains on for hundred seconds.

Framing is supported on the E1/DS1 facilities of the 28xE1/DS1 circuit pack,
63xE1/DS1, as well as the 21xE1/DS1 facilities on the base chassis. Framing
is also supported on the E3/DS3 facilties of the 3xE3/DS3 circuit packs.

Attention: Framing is not supported for 21xE1/DS1 circuit pack on


NT6Q00AA chassis.

Line Build Out (LBO) is supported for the DS1 and DS3 interfaces. When LBO
is enabled, it enhances the signal so as to meet pulse mask specifications at
the end of the fiber. LBO is not independently configurable for transmit and
receive paths. Any provisioning is applied to both transmit and receive
direction. The default value is to disable the LBO. LBO is supported only in the
transmit path.

The following range of cable lengths is supported for DS1:


0 133 ft

Traffic protection switching 3-

This chapter contains procedures to perform traffic protection switching from


the network element web user interface. The 6110 network element supports
the following traffic protection configurations:
unprotected
1+1 Multiplex Section Protection/Automatic Protection Switching
(MSP/APS)
Sub-Network Connection Protection/Unidirectional Path Switch Ring
(SNCP/UPSR)

Unprotected
In an unprotected topology, a connection can be configured between any two
interfaces. This is the default configuration for the STM-1/OC-3 ports. The
STM/OCn ports are set to unprotected configuration by default (i.e, upon auto
provisioning of the network element, the STM/OCn ports are set to
unprotected).

Table 3-1 lists the details of maximum number of connections supported in the
unprotected configuration.

3-2 Traffic protection switching

1+1 MSP/APS
1+1 MSP/APS is a port level protection supported on the STM/OCn
interfaces. The protection conforms to G.841. The term MSP/APS
differentiates it from ring systems. The 1+1 protection scheme uses a
complete duplication of services and implies that two identical lines are active
at the same time (both working and protection lines are transmitting the same
signal) allowing for a transparent switch from the working to the protection line.
In other words, the traffic is permanently bridged on both the working and
protection lines.

Protection switching can be initiated by Multiplexed Section Protection (MSP)


when 6110 is in SDH mode or Automatic Protection Switching (APS) when
6110 is in SONET mode or user initiated switching commands.

Protection switching can be configured either in revertive or non-revertive


mode. In revertive mode, traffic switches back to the work channel once the
fault condition has cleared when the wait to restore (WTR) period has
elapsed. In non-revertive mode, traffic remains on the protect channel and
does not automatically switch back to the work channel when the fault
condition has cleared. The wait to restore time is configurable from 1 to 12
minutes in one minute increments when in revertive mode.

Route diversity
This option enables the user to have two independent DCC links which
enables provisioning the work port and protect port separately. In order to
facilitate the two independent links, the user has to enable the Route diversity
option. When disabled, the DCC links are bridged at the transmit which does
not allow provisioning of the work and protect ports separately.

Table 3-2 lists the details regarding the maximum number of connections
supported in the 1+1 MSP/APS configuration.

Traffic protection switching 3-3

Attention: The local and remote network element must be provisioned with
the same protection configuration.

Configure the MSP/APS group before creating the desired cross-connects


on the working port.

1+1 MSP/APS configuration is applicable to STM-1/OC-3, STM-4/OC-12,


and STM-16/OC-48 ports. Creation of 1+1 MSP/APS between ports on
2x155M tributary circuit pack is not allowed.

The 6110 has the capability to automatically switch traffic from a faulty working
port to the protection port.

Automatic protection switches are initiated by the network element and are
triggered by:
Signal Fail (SF)
Signal Degrade (SD)

SNCP/UPSR
Sub-Network Connection Protection (SNCP) is path protection switching that
is initiated in the path terminating equipment when 6110 is in SDH mode.
Unidirectional Path Switched Ring (UPSR) is path protection switching that is
initiated in the path terminating equipment when 6110 is in SONET mode. In
SNCP/UPSR, protection is initiated on a failure in the path. It is required to
create two paths for each circuit; one working and one protection. Traffic in the
source network element is bridged on both the working and the protection
paths while the destination network element selects the best of the signals
from the working or protection paths. SNCP/UPSR is a dedicated protection
mechanism. SNCP/UPSR operates in a unidirectional protection switching
manner. SNCP/UPSR is a protection scheme, which can be applied on an
individual basis to VC-n/STS-n or VT (both HOVC and LOVC) signals. The
entry and the exit network elements are designated at connection provisioning
time. A network element can be both entry and exit network element in case
of bidirectional SNCP/UPSR ring connection. SNCP/UPSR ring groups are
formed from unprotected facilities. When SNCP/UPSR ring connections are
provisioned on these facilities all intermediate network elements have
pass-through connections.

Attention: SNCP/UPSR can be provisioned only if the port used for working
or protection is not a part of MSP/APS. There should be availability of
minimum bandwidth on both the working and protection port. For example,
to provision SNCP/UPSR for add/drop E1/DS1 cross-connect, there should
be at least one TU12/VT2 available on the working and protection ports.

SNCP/UPSR configuration is supported on STM-1/OC-3, STM-4/OC-12 and


STM-16/OC-48 interfaces. In SNCP/UPSR configuration, the reversion mode
can be provisioned. In revertive mode, traffic switches back to the work path

once the fault condition has cleared when the WTR period has elapsed. In
non-revertive mode, traffic remains on the protect path and does not
automatically switch back to the work path when the fault condition has
cleared.

3-8 Traffic protection switching

The 6110 tributary has the capability to automatically switch traffic from a
faulty working path to the protection path. Automatic protection switches are
initiated by the network element and are triggered by one of the following fault
conditions:
path Loss of Pointer (P-LOP)
path alarm indication signal (P_AIS)
unequipped path signal (UNEQ)
path signal fail (P_SF)
path signal degrade (P_SD)

Path switch criteria for SNCP/UPSR can be manually provisioned by the user.

User switch commands


The protection switching can be either automatic or user initiated. The user
initiated switches (or External Commands) are the same for both MSP/APS
and SNCP/UPSR protection configurations

Table 3-6 gives the brief description for the user initiated switches.

Table 3-6
User initiated switches

Switch Description

Lockout Prevents the traffic from switching to the protection path.

Forced This switch can be used to force the traffic to working or


protection path regardless of the signal fail /degrade condition.

Manual This switch can be used to switch traffic to working or


protection path manually and cannot be done when there is
signal fail/degrade condition on that path. The manual request
works only if there is no higher switch request than itself.

Timing facility provisioning 4-

This chapter contains procedures for provisioning and operation of timing


facilities associated with the external synchronization interface (ESI) on the
6110 network element. The synchronization provides the timing and
synchronization management functionality for the network element.

The selection of a timing generation source is made from a set of nominated


clock sources. You can nominate a maximum of two clock sources. The
following are the possible clock sources:
internal

Attention: BITS1 supports both DS1 (1.5 MHz) and E1 (2 MHz). However,
for the HDE chassis in SONET mode, BITS1 does NOT support DS1 (1.5
MHz). On the HD chassis, both 1.5 MHz in SONET mode and 2 MHz E1 in
SDH mode are supported for BITS1.

The selection of the clock sources is based either on the quality or priority of
the nominated clock source. This depends on the timing manager
configuration. When the quality mode is enabled in the timing manager, the
network element locks to one of the nominated clock sources based on the
quality level and/or priority of the clock sources. When two clock sources have
the same quality level, the priority of the clock sources is processed. The
priority of the clock sources is user-provisionable and ranges from 1 (highest)
to 2(lowest), the priority 0 indicates that the clock source is not available for
selection. When the quality level is disabled in the timing manager, the

network element selects the clock source based on the priority assigned to the
clock source. However, the network element fails to lock to a clock source if
the clock source has a lockout request against it and/or is degraded.

The timing sources provide 2:1 protection (2 sources available for 1 selection).
The active synchronization source that is selected from the set of nominated
synchronization sources depends on:

user or automatic timing protection switch requests in the network element


validity of the nominated sources (synchronization status values)
priorities assigned to the source (user provisionable)
quality of the available signal on the nominated source (ppm offset less
than or equal to 17ppm)
alarm present on the source (Loss of Signal or Alarm Indication Signal)

Quality mode
The quality of a clock is automatically detected in case of STM/SONET clocks
from their S1 byte. The user can configure the QL label of the BITS/PDH
clocks manually. When a BITS/PDH clock is nominated it comes up with an
Invalid quality label. The following quality modes are available to the user:

If the QL Mode is Disabled: Nominated clock input QL is not considered


for clock selection. In this mode the clock with the highest priority is
selected. The next highest priority clock is selected as the secondary
reference.
If the QL Mode is Enabled: Nominated clock input QL is considered for
clock selection. In this mode clock with better QL is selected. In case of
two inputs having the same QL label, the user configured priorities are
used to determine the clock selected.
Output quality (QL) mode
Depending on network element configuration (SDH/SONET mode) and output
QL mode, a differing ranges of output QL values can be selected.

The following is the list of options available for configuring the QL mode:
Auto: Synchronous status messaging (SSM) sends a quality level label of
the selected clock as network element quality to all interfaces connected
to network element.
Manual: SSM sends a user (OPERATOR, OPERATOR2) specified value
as a network element Quality to all interfaces connected to the network
element.

Attention: Irrespective of the output QL mode, a DNU/DUS is sent on the


selected clock interface and its MSP/APS mate port, if any.

Table 4-1 lists the parameters associated with bits squelching.

Table 4-1
Bits squelching in SSM

Switching mode Description

BITS Squelching An AIS signal is transmitted on the BITS Data output and
BITS Clock output is inhibited (if present).

QL_minimum This is a user defined quality level. If the output quality level
of the node falls below the QL_minimum, the BITS is
squelched.

Defaults The default of this user-configured parameter will be set as


DNU/DUS/INVALID. This implies that Bits squelching is
disabled as default and the user must configure to enable it.

Quality Disabled BITS squelching is not available.


Mode

Comparison of output quality mode in SDH/SONET mode


In both SDH and SONET mode, the comparison between the output quality
and the user specified minimum quality will be made. This implies that if the
output quality level of the network element is greater than or equal to the user
configured minimum quality level, the BITS outputs are not to be squelched.

For details on switching modes of synchronization sources, refer to


Procedure 4-6, Operating or releasing an external switch command on a
nominated synchronization source and Procedure 4-7, Provisioning and
clearing a lockout request for the nominated clock source.

Table 4-3
User switch commands

User switch Description

Manual The network element switches to the selected clock source


on manual switch external request.

Forced The network element switches to the selected clock source


on forced switch external request and cannot be switched to
other clock sources unless the external request is cleared.
Forced switch has a higher priority over manual switch.

Lockout The clock source will be excluded from selection if this switch
is on. This has the highest priority over other request.

Attention: Signal fail takes precedence in relation to the sequence of


operation of the force switch and the condition of the timing reference. For
example, if a force switch is active on a clock source and the network element
is locked to the same source and there is signal failure on the timing
reference, the force switch is dropped and the network element locks to the
next available valid clock source. If there is a signal fail on the nominated
clock source and a force switch operation is performed, the network element
switches to the clock source and enters into the holdover mode.

In the event of a force switch operation on a clock source generating an


invalid signal (signal fail condition), the network element switches to this
clock source and enters into the holdover mode. The network element
remains in the holdover mode for 24 hours before entering into the
free-running mode. In the event of recovery of the clock source, the network
element locks to the recovered clock source.

You can derive a maximum of two synchronization outputs from a network


element. In SDH mode, you can use data of 2.048 Mbit/s and/or clock of
2Mbit/s. In SONET mode, only DS1 data can be used. For details, refer to
Table 4-4 and Table 4-5.

The output quality level under synchronization status of the network element
is not configurable, when the output quality mode is set to auto. The clock
output quality level is configurable if the output quality mode is set to manual.

Provisioning DCN 5-

This chapter contains procedures for provisioning and operation of data


communication channels (DCC) on the 6110 network element.

Attention: Refer to the Planning Guide, NT6Q92AE for details on DCN.

The 6110 can be provisioned to act as an iISIS or OSPF router for DCC in
remote management. It can exchange and maintain the routing information on
both the DCC and LAN to which it is connected using the LCT port. The
network element processes the router information on the LCT port if the OSPF
Ethernet parameter is enabled. Similarly, the routing information on the Data
communication channel is processed. The user can enable iISIS as a routing
protocol at the nodal level and at the interface level also for ECC interfaces.

The 6110 has the capability to use either IP or OSI as layer 3 protocol for
routing the data communication packets from the element management
system (EMS)/network management system (NMS) to the network element
and back. It also supports overhead tunneling. Using overhead tunneling you
can transfer transparently the overhead data belonging to a different network
element across the STM-1/OC-3 or STM-4/OC-12 or STM-16/OC-48 ports.

The 6110 also supports the remote management using the embedded
communication channel (ECC) to allow the remote EMS/NMS to
communicate to the network element for OAM&P applications. The 6110
supports provisioning of the ECC over the following bytes/sets of bytes:
DCC-R/SDCC
DCC-M/LDCC
F1
F2
F3
F2F3

5-2 Provisioning DCN

Attention: If the ECC_bytes are enabled on the STM-1/OC-3 or


STM-4/OC-12 ports, the corresponding bytes cannot be used for tunneling.

Due to fixed Maximum Transfer Unit (MTU) size (buffer descriptor number in
HDLC controller) limitation in the 2x155M circuit pack, there can be ping
packet drops observed with large packet frame size. Access to the web user
interface may be slow.

OSPF
The OSPF is an interior gateway routing protocol based on the shortest path
first or link-state algorithm. Routers use link-state algorithms to send routing
information to all nodes in an internetwork by calculating the shortest path to
each node based on a topography of the internet constructed by each node.
Each router sends that portion of the routing table (keeps track of routes to
particular network destinations) that describes the state of its own links, and
it also sends the complete routing structure (topography). The advantage of
shortest path first algorithms is that they result in smaller and more frequent
updates everywhere. They converge quickly, thus preventing problems like
routing loops and count-to-infinity (when routers continuously increment the
hop count to a particular network) which results in a stable network.

The OSPF feature enables monitoring of neighbours of a network element


and the debugging the routing information for In Band Communication (IBC).
The OSPF parameters can be configured for all embedded control channel
interfaces and for the LAN port to enable routing between these interfaces.
OSPF as a routing algorithm is used to route IP packets through the shortest
path. For this to happen, the routers need to properly establish the adjacency
and then exchange their routing database with each other.

OSPF authentication is used to avoid any malicious intentions of establishing


adjacency, thereby avoiding any malicious intentions of knowing routing
database of a network. The password configured in an OSPF authentication
mode is sent in OSPF packets used to establish adjacency where the same
password needs to be configured on both interfaces connected to each other.

OSPF network can be divided into sub-sections called areas. An area is a


group of OSPF networks, routers, and links that have the same area
identification. It helps in reducing the size of the router database as router only
possess detailed information about network topology that is within the area.
The default Area parameter is 0.0.0.1. Any valid IP address is an acceptable
Area parameter.

Provisioning DCN 5-3

iISIS
iISIS stands for integrated ISIS where ISIS is Routing Protocol for OSI
Protocol Suite. iISIS is an integration of ISIS routing protocol with IP specific
features. With iISIS as the Routing Protocol, 6110 can forward OSI packets
and can send IP packets through OSI network elements cloud. This helps the
network element to seamlessly integrate into an IP or OSI network
environment. The connectivity of the network element to the Element
Manager can be established either directly over IP or IP over OSI tunnel if the
network element is in midst of OSI network cloud. The same manual area
address (MAA) needs to be provisioned between 6110 and the adjacent
network element.

Route Redistribution Subnet


Route Redistribution Subnet is provided on gateway node so that in case of
different routing protocols configured for different subnet can redistribute
learnt routes in those subnets from one routing protocol to another. Route
redistribution thus allows different routing protocols to exchange routing
information.

Static route
For routing between routers to work efficiently in a network, routers must have
knowledge of other network IDs or it has to configure with a default route.
When enabled the route can be advertised over OSPF, iISIS or both. This is
based on the routing settings that have been enabled on the network element.
A router with manually configured routing tables is known as a static router.
Static route is an entry in network element routing table that specifies how to
reach an IP address through a particular gateway (network element or
interface). Static routes are used to provide static connectivity between
routers, meaning the routes do not change automatically unlike routing
protocols. A static route allows user to access the network element from any
network. User can do this by adding a destination work IP address and the IP
address of next hop to a network element. Thus a user can establish a link.

Proxy ARP
Proxy ARP allows a gateway network element to respond to address
resolution protocol (ARP) requests for subtending network elements that are
within the same subnet as the customer DCN address range. The proxy ARP
feature removes the need for customers to provision static routes on their
routers and routing protocols (OSPF) between the gateway network elements
and the customer DCN. When Proxy ARP is disabled at the LAN interface,
proxy ARP neighbours reachable from that gateway network element can be
configured manually.

Copyright 2011-2014 Ciena Corporation May 2014
5-4 Provisioning DCN

6110 supports proxy ARP on the broadcast interfaces such as LAN. The 6110
network element supports enabling and disabling of proxy ARP at the LAN
interface level. When enabled, the 6110 network element responds with a
proxy ARP response for all ARP requests that contain an IP address that is
reachable from the network element, When disabled, the 6110 network
element does not respond with a proxy ARP response.

Data communication channel


Each SDH /SONET frame includes two data communication channels (DCC)
called Regenerator Section/Section DCC and Multiplex Section/Line DCC for
transporting management messages between network elements and
management systems. These in-band data communication channels enable
service providers Operation Support Systems (OSS) to manage
SDH/SONET network elements without the need for an expensive
out-of-band data communication network. SDH/SONET are most widely used
network today.

E1/VC12 management channel can be used to transport management


communications between network elements and management systems.
These management channels enable service providers to manage SDH
network elements without the need of expensive out-of-band data
communications network.

GRE tunneling
GRE is an acronym that stands for Generic Routing Encapsulation. The main
functionality of the GRE mechanism is to encapsulates the payload
(datagram) of one protocol with the header of some other protocol called as
Delivery Protocol so that the packet can be routed in a domain where routing
is done by some other protocol that is different from the native protocol from
where this packet was originated.

GRE tunneling supported in 6110 is only IP over OSI tunnel, where IP packets
are encapsulated with the CLNP header with GRE header also in between to
mark the packet as GRE packet. Two types of GRE tunneling are supported
in 6110 are:
Static GRE tunnel
Auto GRE tunnel

Static GRE Tunnel requires the NSAP address details to be entered by user,
while Auto GRE tunnel does not require any NSAP address details from the
user.

Static GRE tunnels


User has to enter the details of Remote NSAP address like Remote MAA,
Remote system Id and Remote NSAP Selector Byte.

Provisioning DCN 5-5

User can have two options for routing over this interface. The
communication can take place either through adding specific static routes
or using OSPF as a routing protocol on it.
Static GRE Tunnel can only be configured when iISIS as a Routing
Protocol is enabled at the nodal level.
Static GRE tunnel does not support iISIS routing protocol on its interface.
User can add static routes over this Static GRE Tunnel interface.

Auto GRE tunnels


Auto GRE Tunnel is a dynamic database and gets created as a Network
Interface Object gets only when iISIS is enabled at the nodal level.
User cannot edit any parameters of this interface.
User can add static routes over Auto GRE Tunnel interface in
non-advertised mode.
Default route usually gets provisioned on auto GRE tunnel interface.
However, user can add more specific static routes on the same.
In the event of default route being already provisioned in R2.0/R2.1/R2.2
software, over upgrade to R3.0, the Auto GRE tunnel interface will have
the static route 10.0.0.0/8 configured against it.
While configuring static routes, user needs to take care that it does not
clash with their network settings.
While configuring static routes, user should ensure that IP packets reach
the GRE module properly.
Serial port
Serial communication is possible due to the serial port. The serial port allows
data communication between two network elements. Once the serial port has
been properly configured, the serial port can be used to send data and receive
data. There are two applications for the serial port on the 6110 network
element. This can be used with user data channel (UDC) or Point-to-Point
(PPP) network. For UDC network, overhead byte F1 is used for data
communication purpose.

The 6110 network element supports external modem connectivity to the


network element through a RS232 serial interface. The M1/F1 port interface
on the network element can be configured for modem operation. This
configuration can be done only from the craft terminal. The data
communication over serial connectivity is based on IP over PPP. The modem
facility provides a serial point-to-point connectivity using PPP protocol and is
terminated on IP.

Serial communication requires that you specify the following parameters:


transmission baud rate

Procedure 5-1
Provisioning static routes
Use this procedure to create static routes on the 6110 network element. Static
routes are entries in the network element routing table that specify how to
reach an IP address through a particular gateway (network element or
interface). Static routes are special routes that the network administrator
manually enters into the router database.

Attention: The next hop IP address must be within the same network and
only one static route can be configured per destination IP address.

When DCN byte configuration is changed from DCCR to DCCM, the static
route over the interface is not restored after configuration change. The static
route is recreated only after warm restart.

If you want to add the same static route on the Remote NE which is present
on any other node in the network and advertised with OSPF, make the route
advertised so that OSPF can do the routing table management properly.

iISIS/OSPF can be enabled on ecc interfaces. OSPF can only be enabled on


Ethernet, management and sgre1 interfaces.

Configurable parameters
Table 5-2 lists the configurable static route parameters with their default and
acceptable values.

Procedure 5-11
Querying or editing network interfaces
Use this procedure to view or edit the network interfaces or the management
channel on the network element.

Attention: For provisioning any OSI or LAPD interfaces, where Layer 3


protocol is OSI and Layer 2 protocol is LAPD, the default MTU size is 512.
For static GRE interface, the MTU size is 446.

When Layer 3 protocol is OSI, OSPF cannot be enabled.

iISIS can be enabled on a network interface only if it has been enabled on


the network element. Refer to procedure Procedure 5-7 on page 5-18 for
more details on how to enable iISIS on the network element.

The iISIS routing protocol being enabled at the interface level where Layer 3
protocol is IP with PPP, HDLC FRAMING cannot be provisioned and will give
an error message.

For provisioning a network interface to IP, change the Layer3 protocol to IP,
change the Layer2 Protocol to PPP HDLC Framing or Standard PPP,
RFC1661 and the MTU size must be set to 1518. This allows you to edit the
IP parameters such as Layer 2 protocol, Magic Number, OSPF, Hello Interval
and Router Dead Interval.

Also refer to Procedure 5-1 on page 5-7 for information on provisioning static
routes.

Ensure that the DCC interfaces are not provisioned prior to configuring a
management channel.

Querying or editing management channel is possible only when 6110


network element is in SDH mode.

Maintenance operations 7-

This chapter contains procedures for maintenance operations that can be


performed on the 6110 network element.

Loopbacks
Loopback enables you to carry out maintenance operation to detect the exact
location of failure. You can perform facility and terminal loopbacks to test the
electrical (E1/DS1/E3/DS3) and optical (STM-1/OC-3 or STM-4/OC-12 or
STM-16/OC-48 ports) connectivity of the 6110 network element. When a
facility loopback is operated on E1/DS1 and optical ports, AIS is sent
downstream.

Facility loopback tests traffic connections to and from E1/DS1/E3/DS3 port


connections on the 6110 and are generally performed on site.

Figure 7-1 shows a facility loopback that tests the E1/DS1/E3/DS3 port
connections to and from 2x155M circuit packs at network elements 1 and 2.
Connect the test equipment to the E1/DS1/E3/DS3 service interface to invoke
a facility loopback on the 4x155/2x622M/2x2.5G circuit pack.

7-2 Maintenance operations

Terminal loopback tests the E1/DS1/E3/DS3 and STM-1/4/OC-3/12 port


connections. Terminal loopback is supported on the Ethernet interfaces, but
AIS is not sent downstream.

Figure 7-2 shows a terminal loopback that tests a E1/DS1/E3/DS3 connection


to and from the 2x155M modules. You must connect the test equipment to the
E1/DS1/E3/DS3 ports on the 6110 and operate a facility loopback on the
2x155MAgg,2x155/622MAgg and 4x155/2x622MAgg circuit pack.

CAUTION
Traffic affecting process
Facility loopback and terminal loopback are traffic
affecting.

CAUTION
Traffic affecting process
Application of facility or terminal loopback on the near
end port (with respect to OMEA server) of a remotely
managed node will result in loss of connectivity with the
node and the downstream network. Hence, while
applying loopbacks, the node should be provided with
IBC protection or should have a personal placed at the
site of the node to avoid loss of connectivity.

Maintenance operations 7-3

Figure 7-3 shows the connectivity of the nodes to the OMEA server. Facility or
terminal loopbacks can be created at the near end ports of Node A without
loss of connectivity due to presence of Ethernet connectivity. But, provisioning
loopbacks at the near end ports of Node B and Node C will lead to loss of
connectivity. Provisioning loopbacks at the far end elements will not affect
connectivity.

Maintenance operations include the following:


loopback operations on ports
diagnostic operations

SNMP traps
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a set of protocols for
managing complex networks. SNMP is an application-layer protocol that
allows network devices to exchange management information. SNMP allows
network administrator to find and interpret network problems and plan network
growth. The 6110 uses SNMP to provide asynchronous event notification to a
network management system (NMS). SNMP trap is an SNMP application that
uses the SNMP trap operation to send information to a network manager.
Traps are sent when errors or specific events occur on the network.

Configuration management
The 6110 network element supports configuration backup and FTP it to the
selected server.

Backup configuration can be used for saving the configuration from the
network element. This command copies the existing snapshot of the
configuration and FTPs it to the server mentioned. In case of failure, a backup
operation failure alarm is raised.

Release 5.0 323-1853-310 Standard Issue 3
Copyright 2011-2014 Ciena Corporation May 2014
7-4 Maintenance operations

Restore configuration can be used for restoring the configuration to the


network element. This command obtains the configuration, (using FTP) from
a remote server, performs checks and accepts the configuration if applicable
to the network element. In case of failure, a restore failure alarm is raised.

Restoring the configuration can be done by either restoring from remote


machine via FTP or from the local machine using HTTP.

The 6110 network element gives an explicit error message for the cause of the
failure. The messages may be of one of the following:
The username, password authentication failure
Unable to reach the server IP address.
Incorrect permissions to transfer the file.

The 6110 network element can recover from restoration operation failures due
to network availability by using FTP timeout of 15 seconds.

The 6110 network element verifies the validity of the restored configuration.
The activation of restored configuration shall be non-service affecting for the
unaffected configuration. If the verification fails, the restored configuration is
rejected and configuration restore failure alarm is raised.

The 6110 network element raises an alarm on detection of a configuration


corruption or a version mismatch but this does not affect traffic.

Attention: It is recommended to perform a network element database


backup on a daily basis.

The configuration backup should be done from a node configured in the


same mode and capacity. On restoring configuration of different type of
node, node type error is displayed.

Upgrade operation
The 6110 allows software, firmware and documentation, SSL certification and
SiteMgr Description download. The network element allows users with
ADMIN privileges to perform software and firmware download operations.

The software download is based on FTP. The network element initiates the
download through an FTP client from an FTP server. However, the network
element can run the FTP server thereby enabling a host workstation without
FTP server to achieve the upgrade. The software download and activation is
non-service affecting. During the software download operation all other
functionality of the network element remains unaffected.

Procedure 7-8
Restoring the network element configuration data
Use this procedure to restore data (including that backed-up from circuit
packs) on the 6110 network element from the server located at the specified
URL. The restore performs some basic checks on the integrity of the restored
data and compares the software release listed in the backup data with the
current software release running on the network element. If the software
releases are not the same, the restoration fails. A successful restoration is
completed with a cold restart of the network element during the commit
configuration step.

CAUTION
Risk of service interruption
During the commit configuration step of the restoration, the
network element will cold restart. Traffic on existing
cross-connects that are not common to those in the restored
configuration are affected.

CAUTION
Loss of comms data
During the cold restart, connectivity to the network element will
be impacted for up to 7 minutes. Activation of the restored
backup may overwrite the IP address and comms settings of
the network element. Ensure you have the comms provisioning
data of the backup file prior to the network element restore.
