We have several ONS 15454E systems running with software release 06.22.006F-23.21. and have planned to install new MRC-I-12 cards. After installing the MRC cards it appears that several of the MRC-I-12 cards will not activate correctly , these cards appear to be working correctly when installed in a ONS15454 chassis that is running release 9. Is there any reason for this.. Is there a compatibility issue with new MRC cards and the ONS software that I am currently running 06.22.006F-23.21
I would upgrade to the latest and greatest CTM. However, this is something you need to discuss with your Cisco account team. They have insight into your current network as well as your future plans for growth, SW upgrades, etc. Your account team will analyze your current network and factor in future growth to make the best recommendation.
Hope this helps,
