Whether OLP boards can be used in electrical-layer ASON

16

Huawei OTN ASON solution can be implemented in two ways: optical-layer ASON (OTN_O) and electrical-layer ASON (OTN_E). Optical-layer ASON achieves service grooming at the OCh wavelength level, while electrical-layer ASON achieves service grooming at the ODUk sub-wavelength level.

Restrictions on a network for which both optical-layer ASON and electrical-layer ASON are configured
Optical-layer ASON and electrical-layer ASON can be configured on the same network but they cannot be configured on the same NE.

Whether the standby cross-connect board needs to be forcibly configured for electrical-layer ASON
The standby cross-connect board is not mandatory, but is recommended to ensure normal service operation.

Whether there are restrictions on the number of TE links on an optical-layer ASON network or an electrical-layer ASON network
On an optical-layer ASON network, a TE link can only be created between FIU boards. The quantity of TE links is determined by the NE scale of the network. Generally, only a few TE links are configured on the network. On an electrical-layer ASON network, ODUk links of different levels can be created based on line board types. Generally, a large number of TE links are configured on the network. An electrical-layer ASON network has far more TE links than an optical-layer ASON network. More links on a network will consume more network resources. Therefore, it is required that an electrical-layer ASON network be smaller than an optical-layer ASON network.

Number of preset restoration trails that can be configured for electrical-layer ASON
When the system resources are sufficient, two preset restoration trails can be configured for each ASON service.

Principles for automatic discovery of electrical-layer TE links for ASON services
Electrical-layer TE links for ASON services are verified through electrical-layer overhead bytes. For the principles of automatic TE link discovery, see the ASON User Guide.
