15454 Alien Wavelengths

Unanswered Question
Aug 4th, 2008

Hi, I am setting up a 15454 MSTP and will be inputting alien wavelengths into the system. Does anyone know if there is documentation to do this? I have not found it. Thanks, Eric

I have this problem too.

Dear Eric,

from a setup perspective this question has already been answered in a previous post. The only information I would like to add is how you would design the alien wave in the first place through the use of Cisco TransportPlanner / MetroPlanner.

To support alien waves (a.k.a. black links) you would need to find the pertinent information as described in (http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/optical/metroplanner/metroplanner_8_5/operations/guide/mp80apd.html) and build a Third-Party interface model. This model would then be installed in CTP as described in (http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/optical/metroplanner/metroplanner_8_5/operations/guide/mp8002.html#wp1268690).

After those steps, you can use CTP in the usual manner to design your DWDM network using the alien wavelength model you have just created.

Hope that helps.
