We are trying to install the optical multirate card (MRC 2.5Gig) on ONS 15454 and found the card comming up on standby state instead of active. The version running on the sonet box is 8.5.0 ...The MRC card port 1 is installed with the OC3 SFP's but cable not attached.
Any help would be appreciated .

Hi, this is normal. Just go on and enable a SFP, called pluggable port module (PPM). After the first SFP is enabled, the state of the MRC card will change to working.
