Preparing for OD V2 testing on the live network

18

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.

Preparations for the OD V2 test on the live network
Question: How do I prepare the OD V2 tests on an NG WDM network? What are the key points? Answer: You can obtain presentation slides about OD V2 from http://support.huawei.com. However, some issues are prone to be ignored during live-network tests. As a result, the preparations are insufficient and the test cannot be performed. Based on the actual test experience, pay attention to the following points: 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, and 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. The following describes some of the restrictions: (1) OA boards must be configured between the FIU boards at the receive-end site of an OMS and the ROADM or multiplexer/demultiplexer boards. (2) Optical-layer boards in all degrees must be configured on the same NE. c. NMS configuration requirements ASE calibration is required for the RAU board in one of the steps. However, during ASE calibration, the Raman laser needs to be enabled and disabled. You are advised to contact Huawei R&D engineers to evaluate whether it is necessary to perform ASE calibration 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.

Impact of enabling ASON on live-network services
Enabling ASON only does not affect live-network services. Node IDs, however, must be set before you enable ASON. If you set node IDs after enabling ASON, NEs will be reset and live-network services will be affected.

Precautions for preparing the AnyOffice device
Precautions for preparing the AnyOffice device are as follows: Ensure that the value of the Common name field is the address used by the AnyOffice client to access the AE server (SVN in V2R2) and is consistent with the access address (external network) configured in the settings page of the AnyOffice client.
