General laser information

Optical fiber telecommunication systems, their associated test sets, and similar operating
systems use semiconductor laser transmitters that emit infrared (IR) light at wavelengths
between approximately 800 nanometers (nm) and 1600 nm. The emitted light is above the
red end of the visible spectrum, which is normally not visible to the human eye. Although
radiant energy at near-IR wavelengths is officially designated invisible, some people can
see the shorter wavelength energy even at power levels several orders of magnitude below
any that have been shown to cause injury to the eye.
Conventional lasers can produce an intense beam of monochromatic light.
Monochromatic light is a single wavelength output of pure color that may be visible or
invisible to the eye. A conventional laser produces a small-sized beam of light, and
because the beam size is small, the power density (also called irradiance) is very high.
Consequently, lasers and laser products are subject to federal and applicable state
regulations as well as international standards for their safe operation.
A conventional laser beam expands very little over distance, or is said to be very well
collimated. Thus, conventional laser irradiance remains relatively constant over distance.
However, lasers used in lightwave systems have a large beam divergence, typically 10 to
20 degrees. Here, irradiance obeys the inverse square law (doubling the distance reduces
the irradiance by a factor of four) and rapidly decreases over distance.
Lasers and eye damage

The optical energy emitted by laser and high-radiance LEDs in the 400 to 1400-nm range
may cause eye damage if absorbed by the retina. When a beam of light enters the eye, the
eye magnifies and focuses the energy on the retina magnifying the irradiance. The
irradiance of the energy that reaches the retina is approximately 105 (or 100,000 times
more than at the cornea) and, if sufficiently intense, may cause a retinal burn.
The damage mechanism at the wavelengths used in an optical fiber telecommunications is
thermal in origin; for example, damage caused by heating. Therefore, a specific amount
of energy is required for a definite time to heat an area of retinal tissue. Damage to the
retina occurs only when one looks at the light sufficiently long that the product of the
retinal irradiance and the viewing time exceeds the damage threshold. Optical energies
above 1400 nm cause corneal and skin burns, but these optical energies do not affect the
retina. The thresholds for injury at wavelengths greater than 1400 nm are significantly
higher than that for wavelengths in the retinal hazard region.
Classification of lasers

Manufacturers of lasers and laser products in the United States are regulated by the Food
and Drug Administration's Center for Devices and Radiological Health (FDA/CDRH)
under 21 CFR 1040. These regulations require manufacturers to certify each laser or laser
product as belonging to one of four major classes: I, II, lla, IlIa, lllb, or IV.

Laser safety

....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is an international standards body


that writes laser safety standards under IEC-60825. Classification schemes are similar and
divided into Classes 1, 1M, 2, 2M, 3B, 3R, and 4. Lasers are classified according to the
accessible emission limits and their potential for causing injury.
Optical fiber telecommunication systems are generally classified as Class I/1, because,
under normal operating conditions, all energized laser transmitting circuit packs are
terminated on optical fibers which enclose the laser energy with the fiber sheath forming
a protective housing. Also, a protective housing/access panel is typically installed in front
of the laser circuit pack shelves. The circuit packs themselves, however, may be
FDA/CDRH Class I, IIIb, or IV or IEC Class 1, 1M, 3B, 3R, or 4. State-of-the-art Raman
optical amplifiers have now extended into the Class IV/4 designations.
Laser safety precautions for optical fiber telecommunications systems

In its normal operating mode, an optical fiber telecommunication system is totally


enclosed and presents no risk of eye injury. It is a Class I/1 system under the FDA/CDRH
and IEC classifications.
The fiber optic cables that interconnect various components of an optical fiber
telecommunication system can disconnect or break and may expose people to lightwave
emission. Also, certain measures and maintenance procedures may expose the technician
to emission from the semiconductor laser during installation and servicing. Unlike more
familiar laser devices, such as solid-state and gas lasers, the emission pattern of a
semiconductor laser results in a highly divergent beam. In a divergent beam, the
irradiance (power density) decreases rapidly with distance. The greater the distance, the
less energy will enter the eye and the less potential risk for eye injury. If you inadvertently
view an unterminated fiber or damaged fiber with the unaided eye at distances greater
than 5 to 6 inches, normally, it will not cause eye injury provided that the power in the
fiber is less than a few milliwatts at the near IR wavelengths and a few tens of milliwatts
at the far IR wavelengths. However, damage may occur if you use an optical instrument
such as a microscope, magnifying glass, or eye loupe to stare at the energized fiber end.
Laser Radiation

CAUTION
Laser hazard
Use of controls, adjustments, and procedures other than those specified herein may result
in hazardous laser radiation exposure.
Use controls, adjustments, and procedures specified in this document to avoid hazardous
laser radiation exposure.

Laser safety precautions for enclosed systems

Under normal operating conditions, optical fiber telecommunication systems are


completely enclosed. Observe the following laser safety precautions for enclosed
systems:

Because of the potential for eye damage, do not stare into optical connectors or
broken fibers.

Do not under any circumstances perform laser/fiber optic operations before


satisfactorily completing laser safety training.
Since viewing lightwave emission directly in excess of Class I/1 limits with an optical
instrument such as an eye loupe greatly increases the risk of eye damage,
observe/follow laser safety labels. Appropriate labels must appear in plain view, in
close proximity to the optical port on the protective housing/access panel of the
terminal equipment

Laser safety precautions for unenclosed systems

During service, maintenance, or restoration, an optical fiber telecommunication system is


considered unenclosed. Observe the following laser safety precautions for unenclosed
systems:

Only authorized, trained personnel shall be permitted to do service, maintenance, and


restoration. Avoid exposing the eye to emissions from unterminated, energized optical
connectors at close distances. Laser modules associated with the optical ports of laser
circuit packs are typically recessed, which limits the exposure distance. Optical port
shutters, automatic power reduction (APR), and automatic power shutdown (APSD)
are engineering controls that are also used to limit the emissions. However, do not
stare or look directly into the optical port with optical instruments or magnifying
lenses when removing or replacing laser circuit packs. (Normal eye wear or indirect
viewing instruments, such as a Find-R-Scopes, are not considered magnifying lenses
or optical instruments.)
Only authorized, trained personnel shall use the optical test equipment during
installation or servicing since this equipment contains semiconductor lasers. (Some
examples of optical test equipment are Optical Time Domain Reflectometers
[OTDRs] and Hand-Held Loss Test Sets.)
Do not, under any circumstance, scan a fiber with an optical test set without verifying
that all laser sources on the fiber are turned off.
Only authorized personnel are permitted in the immediate area of the optical fiber
telecommunication systems during installation and service.

For guidance on the safe use of optical fiber optic communication systems in the
workplace, consult ANSI Z136.2, American National Standard for Safe Use of Optical
Fiber Communication Systems Utilizing Laser Diodes and LED Sources in the United
States or outside the United States, IEC-60825, Part 2.

Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-36/PSS-32/PSS-16

The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-36, PSS-32 and PSS-16 are three closely related shelves
that compose the 1830 PSS-36/PSS-32/PSS-16 multi-service multi-reach solution. They
are scalable optical transport platforms that provide an evolution toward a single
converged platform for multi-service DWDM metro-area, long-haul, and Optical
Transport Network (OTN) switching, and leading edge flexibility with next generation
optical and OTN capabilities.
For core, central office applications, the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-36 Universal shelf
provides a 36-slot platform that supports up to 18 full-height universal or service slots and
up to 32 half-height universal or service slots, and the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-32
Central Office Shelf provides a 32-slot platform. The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-16 End
Office Shelf provides an economical 16-slot platform with a smaller footprint for end
office or smaller core office applications. In this document, these shelves are referred to
collectively as the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-36/PSS-32/PSS-16.
The 1830 PSS-36/PSS-32/PSS-16 multi-service multi-reach shelves are designed to
provide options that drive down the costs of metro, regional, and long-haul network
deployments while increasing network manageability and responsiveness. One of the
main benefits of this platform is its scalability and application support, from simple
CWDM networks, through aggregation of CWDM/DWDM ring/mesh networks, to
regional and long-haul DWDM networks.
The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS-36, PSS-32 and PSS-16 support a control plane (on top of
the transport or data plane) in building the GMPLS/ASON networks with a set of
protocols (OSPF-TE, RSVP-TE, LMP) which are used to exchange information between
network elements (NEs, also called nodes) for establishing and releasing paths in an
automated, distributed fashion across a network. Each Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS network
element in the transport plane can be equipped with a controller called GMPLS Routing
Engine (GMRE). The GMRE nodes in a network are forming the control plane and are
running the GMPLS protocol suite. All the resources of the GMRE nodes are stored into a
topology database, which will be used for routing and link and alarm administration.

1830 PSS web user interface


WebUI functions and features
Description

The web user interface (WebUI) provides web-based access to the network element (NE).
The WebUI interface is accessed using Internet Explorer running on a computer that is
connected via Ethernet to the NE, either directly or over a LAN. The WebUI supports
provisioning, administration, performance monitoring, and display of alarms and
conditions from the NE. It provides an intuitive, easy-to-use tool to assist in the initial
installation and troubleshooting of NEs.
The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS WebUI interface provides a graphical user interface to the
node software using HTML, JavaScript, and Java. The application runs on the NE and is
controlled and viewed through a standard web browser that is provided by the PC. The
WebUI displays a physical view of the NE topology. This view includes the shelves, cards
and ports applicable to fiber connection management, as well as the existing fiber
connections between ports on the NE.
The WebUI does not run the full Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS features as does the 1354
RM-PhM. The CIT port only provides basic NE management (for local and remote
management via SNMP). IP Routing functions have to be configured so that all NEs
intended to be managed, are reachable from the local NE. In other words, IP applications
from any external DCN network will work only when there is full IP reach capability to
every GNE and RNE in the network.

Using the WebUI


Overview

The web user interface (WebUI) provides web-based access to the network element (NE).
You access the WebUI interface using Internet Explorer running on a computer that is
connected via Ethernet to the NE, either directly or over a LAN.

Corrective Action Procedures


Note: This section includes the trouble-clearing procedures required to clear the
conditions for the listed alarms. For comprehensive alarm clearing details and full list
of alarms, see the 1830 PSS Maintenance and Trouble-Clearing Guide.
DBINVALID (Database Invalid)

At the end of each step wait to see if the fault clears. If not, go to the next step.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

If this is a result of a downgrade, then follow the appropriate procedure in the 1830 PSS
User Provisioning Guide to restore the pre-upgrade database to the Equipment Controller.
Note: The redundant Equipment Controller, if one is in its slot, will synchronize with
the active Equipment Controller.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

If this is the result of a user panel replacement, a database backup (previously saved for
this NE) must be restored to the NE from a remote database backup and restore server,
with the special keyword "force".
The steps are as follows:
1. Re-provision the user panel OADM port details for this NE.
2. Re-provision the static routing and gateway information for this NE.
3. Re-provision the database server information, refer to the 1830 PSS User
Provisioning Guide for the database backup and restore procedure.
4. Enter the CLI command config database restore force to bring the database
from a remote server to the NE.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

If the DBINVALID condition is present as a result of the replacement of a Equipment


Controller, and there is no protection Equipment Controller, then follow then follow the
appropriate procedure in the 1830 PSS User Provisioning Guide to restore the database to
the Equipment Controller.
Note: It is crucial to have the backup database be a duplicate of the one running on

1830 PSS Engineering and Planning Tool
Overview

The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS Engineering Tool (EPT) is used to design the networks
composed of 1830 PSS-36/PSS-32/PSS-16, 1830 PSS-4, and 1830 PSS-1 network
elements (NEs). It supports initial designs as well as incremental additions to existing
networks. Through its interface with the Network Management System, design
information produced by the EPT is downloaded to individual NEs to facilitate system
turn-up.
The EPT is a standalone Windows application with a Graphical User Interface (GUI)
capable of capturing network requirements and synthesizing network solutions. A built-in
design optimizer produces the lowest cost network requirements.
Given the complex nature of capturing network requirements, the EPT is capable of
operating in the following ways:

Fully automatic network design synthesis


Automatic design synthesis with manual override
Fully manual design synthesis

Phased design that enforces in-service upgrades from one phase to another
What-if scenarios to quantify how future traffic patterns operate in the design

The EPT examines thousands of network alternatives, taking into account various optical
parameters including fiber attenuation, end- of-life attenuation margin, connector losses,
chromatic dispersion, and polarization mode dispersion. It calculates transmission
characteristics including typical and worst-case optical signal-to-noise ratio (OSNR),
residual dispersion, and nonlinear phase shift. The EPT also takes into account optical
penalties due to PMD, PDL, filter penalty, cross talk penalty, and nonlinear transmission
penalty.
The EPT is able to model 1830 PSS-36/PSS-32/PSS-16, 1830 PSS-4, 1830 PSS-1, and
combinations of 1830 PSS-36/PSS-32/PSS-16, 1830 PSS-4, and 1830 PSS-1 networks.
Tunable OADM (TOADM), fixed OADM (FOADM), and CWDM configurations can be
modeled in the EPT according to the NE configuration capabilities. Maximum channel
counts and optional utilization of the Fiber Storage Tray and Flex shelf can be specified in
the EPT to accommodate cost/performance trade-offs as well.
The EPT produces a set of reports that can be used to order, install, and configure
Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS networks. These reports include Bill of Materials, Amplifier and
DCM Placement, Optical Transmission Characteristics, Card Placement (both tabular and
graphical Bay Layout), Fiber Characteristics, and general network assumptions. The EPT
also produces a design file for the Network Management System that works in
conjunction with WaveTracker to define alarm thresholds specific to each design for
preventive network maintenance.

1354 RM-PhM Photonic Manager


Overview

The 1354 RM-PhM is a client-server system that is used to perform remote monitoring
and control of networks of Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS equipment.
The 1354 RM-PhM supports management of Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS network elements.
The 1354 RM-PhM server communicates with the network elements using the SNMP
protocol. A network element is characterized by having an SNMP agent. As a result, a
network element is a managed entity.
For comprehensive details and information on Photonic Manager, see the 1354 RM-PhM
EMS Reference Guide.
Commissioning and power balancing tool

The commissioning and power balancing (CPB) tool can be used in conjunction with
1354 RM-PhM or can also be installed and used as a stand-alone tool. The Provisioning,

stand-alone CPB tool requires the user to have access to another Network Management
System (e.g. OMS, INC, etc.) or utilize the NE built in user interfaces (CLI or WebUI) in
order to make the relevant adjustments required in support of Provisioning,
Commissioning, and Power Balancing the Network Element that would have otherwise
been performed by utilizing the 1354 RM-PhM.
