Preparing for OD V2 testing on the live network

1. Check whether the live-network equipment configurations meet OD V2 enabling requirements, including the following aspects:
a. Hardware requirements
For example, hardware version requirements of the OA, MCA, OPM8 boards.
b. Networking requirements
Exercise caution because OD V2 has many restrictions on networking. The OD V2 may fail to be enabled on the live network if networking configurations do not meet requirements. For example, OA boards must be configured between FIU and ROADM boards or between optical multiplexer/demultiplexer boards at the Rx site of an OMS. The optical-layer boards of the same degree must be configured on the same NE.
c. NMS configuration requirements
Note that before amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) are calibrated for RAU boards, the Raman laser must be enabled or disabled. You are advised to contact Huawei R&D engineers for evaluating whether ASE calibration is necessary on the live network.
d. Collect network-wide scripts and send them to Huawei HQ for evaluating whether networking conditions and hardware configurations on the live network meet OD V2 enabling requirements.
2. Software version requirements, including
a. Equipment software: NG DWDM V100R008C00 or later. A live-network version upgrade may be required.
b. U2000: V100R009C00 or later. A U2000 version upgrade may be required.
c. MDS 6630: V100R007C20. The tool needs to be integrated into the U2000. Therefore, you must apply for a valid license.
3. After all preparations are ready, start OD V2 configurations with reference to OD V2 feature slides.
