Management of 15454 M6/M12 environment

We have a large network with a mixture of M6 and M12 Network Elements geographically dispersed from one another. What is the best recommendation for managing this via CTC? Most specifically do the nodes need to be in the same broadcast domain, or can we connect each node to a router in the different PoPs and as long as we have IP connectivity we are okay?



We have tried a few different approaches, and none are really that fast. We have discussed with support a few times and gotten a few different answers. What does the support community generally do for management of the NEs?

- Use Cisco Prime Optical.

- Use Cisco Prime Optical. And you will see all in one Domain

- Use CTC feature to add Node to Map. This configuration will be local only.

- Use OSPF on ONS. Turn on OSPF on LAN port. Create Virtual Links betwen nodes, but it could be dangerouse, need to plan routing before.
