Restriction on the types and quantity of OSN 8800 NEs on an ASON network


For an OCS ASON (also SDH ASON) or OTN ASON network that is equipped with OSN 8800 of version V100R007C02 or later, the number of electrical subracks cannot exceed 150 equivalent OSN 8800 T32 subracks (75 OSN 8800 T64 subracks, or 300 OSN 8800 T16 subracks).

OSN 8800 NE resource grouping to OTN optical NEs
Select an optical NE. Right-click it and choose Attribute from the shortcut menu. Navigate to the Resource Division window. In the window, find the desired OptiX OSN 8800 NE from idle NEs and add the NE to the right-side box. Then click OK.

Networking of the OSN 8800
The OSN 8800 is a new-generation intelligent product that supports MS-OTN. It is a future-proof product launched to address the IP-based MAN development trend. Using a new architecture, the OSN 8800 supports dynamic optical-layer scheduling and flexible electrical-layer scheduling. In addition, the OSN 8800 features high integration and reliability and supports multi-service transmission. The OSN 8800 applies to long-haul backbone networks, regional backbone networks, local networks, the metro convergence layer, and the metro core layer. The OSN 8800 uses the DWDM technology and CWDM technology to implement multi-service, large-capacity, and transparent transmission.

Relationship between optical NEs and electrical NEs on an ASON network
When the optical and electrical NEs of an ASON NE are not split, the OTU or FIU boards on the ASON NE can function as edge points, and the related TE links can be automatically created when the boards are created. When the optical and electrical NEs are split, the multiplexer/demultiplexer or other optical-layer boards can function as the edge points of the optical NEs. When the fiber connections between the optical ports on the multiplexer/demultiplexer boards and those on the OTU boards are created, the intra-NE links that carry OCh signals are automatically created.

Impact of changing the NE ID of OSN 8800
The following functions will be affected if the NE ID is changed for WDM devices: the logical fiber connections (FM), automatic optical power adjustment (OPA), intelligent power adjustment (IPA), automatic level control (ALC), automatic power equilibrium (APE), wavelength locking, optical port protection, OWSP protection, OD, and OD V2.
