im setting up an SNCP ring on the 15454E running rel 9.0
although SNCP is the default state for the ONS, I need some help from the experts out there for things i have not yet figured out.
1. SNCP is path based protection and doesnt use the K bytes as far as i can understand. For the SDH DCC terminations configuration when setting up an SNCP ring, is RS-DCC or MS-DCC to be used ?
2. Are protection groups required to be defined for SNCP or is this just used for linear setups ?
3. other than installing the cards, connecting the fibres, and configuring the DCC and circuit appropriately is there anything else really required for setup ?
4. sncp ring gives you protection for the ring between ONS chassis like so:
The drop to the customer in this case is a single tx/rx fibre pair.
If I want to setup a working/protect from ONS to customer, as far as i can understand this requires APS which uses the K bytes. Is an SNCP ring suitable here, or due we have to use MS-SPRing. If so do we extend the MS-SRPing to the customer device, so it receives the K bytes for APS ?
