Method used to convert a non-gateway NE to a gateway NE

1

1. Choose Administration > DCN Management from the U2000 main menu.

2. In the Filter dialog box, select the common NE to be modified. The selected common NEs are displayed on the NE tab.

3. Select a common NE from the list, right-click NE Name, and choose Change to GNE from the shortcut menu.

4. In the displayed Change to GNE dialog box, set GNE Type and IP Address or NSAP Address.

Differences between the primary NE and gateway NE on an ASON network
The primary NE is responsible for communication between the ASON network and U2000 server. It transmits information on the ASON control plane and reports ASON events to the U2000 server. An ASON domain can have only one primary NE and one secondary NE. A gateway NE is connected with the U2000 server using the TCP/IP protocol. Generally, an NE that is connected to the U2000 server through a LAN or WAN is a gateway NE. Multiple gateway NEs can be connected to the U2000 server. Generally, you can configure the primary or secondary NE as the gateway NE on an ASON network to leverage ECC bandwidth resources.

Whether multiple primary NEs that function similar to gateway NEs can be created in an ASON domain
Only one primary NE and one secondary NE can be created in an ASON domain. The U2000 server needs to establish a connection with either the primary or secondary NE. The NE that establishes a connection with the U2000 is called the gateway NE and implements communication between the ASON network and the U2000 server. In normal cases, you are advised to configure the primary NE as the communication NE. When the primary NE fails, the secondary NE becomes the communication NE. If both the primary and secondary NEs fail, the system automatically selects an ASON NE as the communication NE.

Method used to restore the database package for a non-ASON NG SDH NE
Question: During restoration of the database package on a non-ASON NG SDH NE, some services are interrupted after the database package is downloaded. As a result, alarms such as AU_AIS, TU_AIS, and HP_UNEQ are generated. Is there any method for preventing services from being interrupted during database package restoration? Analysis: During database package restoration, if you choose to issue configuration data to boards and the configuration data in the database is different from that on system control boards and cross-connect boards, services will be interrupted. Answer: 1. Before restoring the database package, collect the basic configuration information of the NE. 2. Select Restart for the activation type. Do not select the option for issuing configurations to boards. 3. After the restoration is completed, collect the basic configuration information of the NE again, and compare the collected data with the previously collected one. 4. If the data is consistent, perform a warm reset on cross-connect boards and service boards in sequence. 5. If the data is inconsistent, find out the missing services or modified services based on the data collected before restoration to create a configuration script, and configure the services separately. When the data is consistent with that collected before restoration, perform a warm reset on cross-connect boards and service boards in sequence. 6. Check whether services are interrupted. Suggestion and conclusion: Restoring the database package is a high-risk operation. Therefore, perform operations following the requirements.

Method used to configure the OSPF protocol for ASON NEs?
In general, it is not allowed to disable the OSPF protocol for an ASON network. In some scenarios, however, disabling the OSPF protocol for ASON NEs can release resources and therefore enable resources to be properly utilized.
