3.2 Associated Concepts


Term Optimization scope Description Includes "link evaluation scope" and "service evaluation scope". The former refers to an MSP links that are specified by the relevant evaluation experts and forms a connected evaluation subnet. The latter refers to the service set that is optimized in the logic evaluation subnet. The service refers to the end-to-end service within the subnet. Describes the routing cost of the services on the multiplex section links. When service timeslots need to be optimized, the links with the minimum total weights are selected as the service routes. Describes the routing cost of the services on a node. When service timeslots need to be optimized, the node set with the minimum total weights are selected as the service routes. Describes the self-defined settings for the upper limit of the link capacity within a logical subnet that is optimized. Customers need to reserve certain link capacities based on the requirements. Refers to the node that has the CP-CP and CP-BP lower order cross-connection capability. Refers to the node that has the CP-BP lower order crossconnection capability. If the node does not have the lower order cross-connection capability, it must be a non-grooming node. By default, the source node and destination node of an ASON trail to be optimized are non-grooming nodes even though they support lower order crossconnections. Service weight Describes the route allocation priority of the services to be optimized. The services with higher priorities are first allocated with the routes to ensure the availability. Describes the strategy for disjoint between the working trail and protection trail to be followed during service timeslot optimization. Node disjoint indicates that the working trail and protection trail need to be separated as far as possible for routing of the services whose timeslots need to be optimized. Link disjoint indicates that the working link and protection link need to be separated as far as possible for routing of the services whose timeslots need to be optimized. No protection indicates that the protection trail need not be generated for the services to be optimized.

Describes the total link bandwidth consumed by the multiplex section services in the evaluation scope specified by customers in the current state. Describes the total lower order cross-connection capacity of the nodes, which is consumed by the services in the evaluation scope specified by customers in the current state. Describes the upper limit of the bandwidth on the higher-order paths to carry lower order services in the evaluation scope specified by customers. Refers to the general network evaluation before and after timeslot optimization. Refers to the process of re-defining the optimization scope and strategy, and implementing the optimization again if a customer does not satisfy with the current optimization result.

3.3 Service Scenario


This service is provided to meet optimization requirements regarding the following aspects: resources, security, management, and evolution. The typical optimization scenarios are

4 Project Summary

described as follows.

3.3.1 Breaking the Resource Bottleneck


Compressing Timeslots and Freeing-Up Line Resources
Before optimization: Each VC-4 is partially occupied. That is, VC-4s are not fully used but no entire VC-4s are available. As a result, VC-4 services cannot be configured. After optimization: VC-12 timeslots in a VC-4 are used only after the previous VC-4 is fully occupied. In this way, entire VC-4s are available for transmitting VC-4 services. Figure 1.1 Compressing timeslots

Switching Services from the Long Path to the Short Path


Before optimization: The long path is used to transmit services due to improper route planning, resource bottleneck, or incomprehensive service configuration plan (especially in the case of per-NE configuration). After optimization: The short path is used to transmit services when possible, thereby reducing resource consumption. Figure 1.2 Switching services from the long path to the short path

3.3.2 Improving Service Security


Avoiding Alternative Routes, Thereby Reducing Resource Consumption and Improving Service Security
Before optimization: Alternative routes may be generated during route configuration on the NMS due to frequent network migrations, improper route planning, or insufficient network resources. After optimization: Alternative routes are avoided and service quality is improved. Figure 1.1 Avoiding alternative routes

Adjusting TDM Cross-Connections to Correct Incorrect Service Connections (Not Supported by the AMS5000 V100R005)
NOTE

On an MSP ring network, TDM cross-connections are configured (that is, different VC-12 timeslots are used to transmit one service). After a single node fails or a fiber cut occurs, a service switching occurs, which may result in incorrect service connections. To avoid the risk of incorrect service connections, you need to adjust the timeslots used and ensure that a service is transmitted in the same timeslot on a protected ring network (that is, in the same timeslot on the same ring) if possible.

Before optimization: Services are cross-connected among different timeslots. Figure 1.2 TDM cross-connection

Issue 1.10 (2010-09-13)

Delivery Guide

4 Project Summary

After optimization: Services are transmitted in the same timeslots. Figure 1.3 TDM cross-connection after optimization

Load Balancing
Before optimization: Services from the same office direction are converged through the same route to the central office. If the convergence node fails, all the services may be congested. After optimization: The service routes are adjusted so that the services transmitted to the ring network are converged to the convergence layer respectively through two convergence nodes. In this case, service load is balanced. Even if a single node fails, half the services are available. Figure 1.4 Load balancing

3.3.3 Requirements for Management and Maintenance


Aggregating Services from the Same Office Direction
Before optimization: A VC-4 transmits VC-12 services from different office directions. Therefore, pass-through services are configured at VC-12 level; many timeslot resources are consumed for lower order cross-connections. After optimization: VC-12 services from the same office direction are transmitted over the same VC-4. This optimization allows VC-4 pass-through services to be configured, reduces resource

consumption for lower order cross-connection, and facilitates maintenance and management. Figure 1.1 Aggregating services from the same office direction

NOTE

To achieve timeslot aggregation, it is necessary to compress timeslots and transmit services from the same office directions over the same VC-4s. In this case, the more the office directions to be involved, the more the VC-4 resources to be occupied.

Correspondence Between the Ports on a Tributary Board and the VC-12 Timeslots on a Line Board (Not Supported by the AMS5000 V100R005)
Before optimization: A VC-4 transmits VC-12 services from different office directions (for a tributary board). Therefore, pass-through services are configured at VC-12 level; many timeslot resources are consumed for lower order cross-connections. After optimization: VC-12 services from the same office direction are transmitted over the same VC-4. This optimization allows VC-4 pass-through services to be configured and reduces resource consumption for lower order cross-connections. Figure 1.2 Correspondence between the ports on a tributary board and the VC-12 timeslots on a line board

NOTE

To achieve timeslot consistency between the tributary boards and the line boards, it is necessary that the ports on a tributary board (PQ1) correspond to the 63 VC-12 timeslots in a VC-4. To meet this requirement, an office direction corresponds to a tributary board.

4 Project Summary

Planning Timeslots by Service Type


Before optimization: A VC-4 transmits several types of VC-12 services, which impedes service management, service availability, and troubleshooting. After optimization: Services of the same type are transmitted over the same VC-12 or VC-4, which facilitates maintenance and reduces resource consumption for lower order crossconnections. Figure 1.3 Planning timeslots by service type

NOTE

To meet this requirement, services of the same type need to be transmitted over the same VC-4. Generally, services from the same office direction also need to be transmitted over the same VC-4.

Planning Timeslots by Region


Before optimization: No dedicated VC-4s are allocated on the convergence or backbone ring for transmitting services from different regions, which impedes service management. After optimization: On the backbone layer (10G MSP ring, for example), dedicated VC-4s are allocated for services from each specific region, which facilitates management and maintenance.

In addition, dedicated VC-4s can be allocated for each access ring. Figure 1.5 Planning timeslots by access ring

3.3.4 ASON Evolution


Only VC-4 services can be transmitted directly on the ASON network. Before being transmitted to the ASON network, lower order services need to be aggregated as VC-4 services; alternatively, lower order services need to be transmitted in tunnels on the ASON network. In either case, timeslot adjustment and aggregation need to be performed before services are transmitted over the ASON network. Figure 1.1 Aggregating lower order services

Aggregating Lower Order Services on a Non-ASON NE


Unless lower orderwire services from a non-ASON NE are configured as tunnel services on the ASON network, you need to aggregate the lower orderwire services on the non-ASON NE first.

Aggregating Lower Order Services on an ASON NE


When lower order services from a non-ASON NE are configured as tunnel services on the ASON network, you may also need to aggregate the lower order timeslots as VC-4s. It is because the existing VC-4 server trail may be segmented; that is, the services from the same office direction are transmitted over several segments of a VC-4 server trail. It is recommended that you configure the lower order services from the same office direction to be transmitted over an end-to-end VC-4 tunnel (instead of different segments of a VC-4 server trail).

3.4.1 Timeslot Optimization Strategy


Overall Timeslot Optimization Strategy
The overall timeslot optimization strategy specifies the weight values of service availability, link capacity consumption, and lower order capacity consumption. The three weight values are correlated. A weight value can be "high", "medium", or "low". You need to set the weight values according to the actual network requirements. For example, when resources for lower order cross-connections are insufficient but the link capacity is sufficient, you can the weight for the lower order capacity consumption to "high" and set the weight for the link capacity consumption to "low". Figure 1.1 Timeslot optimization strategy

Strategy for Planning the Server Trail


The strategy for planning the server trail specifies whether to use an end-to-end or segmented VC-4 server trail. The upper threshold X and lower threshold Y are used to specifying the strategy. If there are not more than X lower order services from the same office direction, the server trail is a segmented trail and intermediate NEs pass through lower order services only. If there are more than X but less than Y lower order services from the same office direction, the server trail may be a segmented or an end-to-end trail. If there are not more than Y lower order services from the same office direction, the server trail is an end-to-end trail and intermediate NEs pass through higher order services but do not add/drop lower order services.

Strategy for Consolidating Lower Order Cross-Connections


The strategy for consolidating lower order cross-connections specifies how to reduce resource consumption for lower order cross-connections. The threshold Z is designed. As shown in 1.4, if more than Z VC-12 space-division cross-connections are transmitted between the VC-4s in the west and east directions (that is, the same VC-12 timeslots are used in the east and west directions), the VC-12 pass-through services between the two VC-4s are consolidated as a VC-4 pass-through service. Figure 1.4 Strategy for consolidating lower order cross-connections

Appropriate strategies for planning the server trail and for consolidating lower order crossconnections ensure appropriate resource consumption for lower order cross-connections.

3.4.2 NE Attributes and Link Attributes


Before designing the timeslot optimization plan, you need to set the grooming attribute of NEs. On a grooming NE, lower order services can pass through connection ports (CPs). On a nongrooming NE, only higher order services can pass through CPs. The restriction due to the grooming attribute is not applicable to service transmission between a CP and a boundary port (BP). As shown in 1.1, CPs are within the optimization scope and BPs are beyond the optimization

scope. Figure 1.1 NE attributes and link attributes

Timeslot optimization requirements in ASON evolution scenarios can be met by setting the grooming attribute of NEs or setting links to be ASON trails. ASON evolution scenario 1: Unless you configure lower orderwire services from a non-ASON NE to be transmitted as tunnel services on the ASON network, you need to aggregate the lower orderwire services on the non-ASON NE first. Figure 1.2 Aggregating lower order services on a non-ASON NE

Issue 1.10 (2010-09-13)

Delivery Guide

4 Project Summary

To aggregate lower order services on a non-ASON NE, do as follows: 1. Timeslot optimization covers all the links on the network. During timeslot optimization, you need to set all the links in the ASON domain and the links connected between static NEs and ASON domain to ASON trails. On these ASON trails, all services are of the VC4 level. Timeslot optimization covers all the links on the network. During timeslot optimization, you need to set all ASON NEs to non-grooming NEs.

2.

ASON evolution scenario 2: If you configure services to be transmitted over tunnels on the ASON network, it is recommended that you use end-to-end VC-4 tunnels, instead of segmented tunnels. Figure 2.1 Aggregating lower order services on an ASON NE

To aggregate lower order services on an ASON NE, do as follows: 1. Timeslot optimization covers all the links on the network. During timeslot optimization, you need to set all the links in the ASON domain to ASON trails. On these ASON trails, all services are of VC-4 level. Timeslot optimization covers all the links in the ASON domain. During timeslot optimization, you need to set all ASON NEs to non-grooming NEs.

3.4.3 Route Restrictions


Route restrictions describe the strategy for disjoint between the working trail and protection trail to be followed during service timeslot optimization. Node disjoint and link disjoint are supported, which meets the requirement for disjoint between the working trail and the protection trail and improves the service security.

3.4.4 Timeslot Reservation and Batch-Specific Timeslot Planning


On an STM-N link, different VC-4s are reserved for different services; in a VC-4, different VC12s are reserved for different services. Timeslots for services within a specific region can be planned by service batch. You can plan different channels for services of different types and from different regions by means of timeslot reservation and batch-specific timeslot planning. Figure 1.1 Timeslot reservation and batch-specific timeslot planning

3.4.5 Setting the Weight Values and Adjusting Routes Manually


Manually Adjusting Important Trails
The routes and timeslots for important services can be adjusted manually and timeslots such discrete services remain unchanged. This allows for personalized trail settings, such as risk sharing. That is, different customer requirements can be met by manually adjusting the routes and timeslots manually.

Node/Link Weight Value


You need to adjust the node/link weight value according to the actual situations to minimize the network-wide weight value. Follow the principle to ensure that lower order services take priority when occupying resources: The higher the lower order capacity (for example, a cross-connect board with higher crossconnect capacity is used on the OptiX OSN 3500), the smaller the weight value.

Setting the Service Weight


Follow the principle to ensure that important services are provisioned first:

causes with the customer and determine whether the data downloading or uploading operation is required. Step 3 Check the consistency of fiber connections. For the OptiX OSN equipment, this operation can be performed by using the NMS. For other types of equipment, however, this operation may be performed by manually checking alarms or using monitor bytes. Step 4 Check the consistency between virtual NE or pre-configured NE. The virtual NE and preconfigured NE represent the connections between the switching equipment and the other types of equipment. They are not involved in the optimization. Therefore, with the prior consent of the customer, you can delete them and terminate the services at NNI optical port. Step 5 Check the consistency of network-wide trail data. Ensure that the trail data on the NMS is correct. Delete all trails on the network side and then search for the trails all over the network. Step 6 Check the consistency of network data according to the following table. Item NEs in installation state NEs whose data is inconsistent with the NMS data Fiber misconnections Unterminated services on a virtual NE or a preconfigured NE Backing up NE databases Backing up NMS databases Checking the consistency of network-wide trail data Requiremen t None None None None Completed Completed Completed Status

Step 7 Handle the deactivated services on the network. Check with the customer whether to reserve these services. If not, delete them. If yes, optimize them later. Step 8 Export the scripts of the T2000. ----End

Delivery Procedure
Step 2 (Optional) Export the service report by using the AMS5000. Step 3 (Optional) Fill in the service report with service remarks, such as the service type (2G, 3G, or monitor channel) and service region. Step 4 (Optional) Import the service remarks.
NOTE

The preceding three steps are performed when a large number of services need to be planned in batches. The service remarks serve as filtering conditions in batch planning. If batch planning is not required, skip these three steps.

Step 5 Select the target links on the AMS5000. Step 6 Configure the attributes of the links (such as weights and ASON links) and the timeslot resources reserved for the links. Step 7 Configure the weights and grooming attributes of nodes. Step 8 Select the target services based on filtering conditions. If some services are already planned, add them to the services whose routes are not to be changed. Step 9 Configure the overall optimization policies (such as service provisioning, lower order crossconnections, and link utilization rate) and the planning and integration policies at the server layer.

Step 10 Start the optimization. Check the optimization results if all services are optimized. To optimize more services, repeat the steps from configuring link attributes and reserved resources. Step 11 (Optional) Manually adjust the routes and timeslots of some services. For example, if some services cannot be provisioned, you need to specify the routes and timeslots of these services. Step 12 Export the optimization report and the optimization solution. The former compares the routes and timeslots of services before and after the optimization. The latter lists the routes and the cross-connections of each NE after optimization in excel spreadsheets. Step 13 Submit the optimization solution for the customer's approval. ----End

Precautions

This procedure yields the values of services and thus is the most important procedure in the delivery process. An optimization solution needs to be adjusted manually if certain customer requirements cannot be met by using the AMS5000. The optimization solution is designed based on the current network data. To ensure the effectiveness of optimization, the customer is expected not to change or add services after the network data is collected and before the optimization is implemented. If any service is added or changed in this period, the customer needs to record the service so that the optimization solution can be modified accordingly.

Step 2 Prepare the service configuration commands according to the cross-connections of each NE. Step 3 Check and ensure that the commands are correct.
NOTE

Except command lines, you can pre-configure optimized services on the NMS and export new scripts. Engineers can select either method. Command lines can be prepared more quickly and allows for faster configuration delivery, but have higher requirements for operation skills. Scripts are more convenient in verifying end-to-end services.

Step 4 Make a detailed implementation plan, which specifies the cutover procedure, operation time, operation personnel, work assignment, and rollback measures. Step 5 Verify the command lines and implementation plan in a lab. Make appropriate changes if any problem is found. Step 6 Submit the implementation plan for the customer's approval. ----End
