1.1 Creating Transparent Transmission Services Over Ethernet


Purpose
The transparent transmission of Ethernet services enables each set-up route to have a fixed bandwidth and performance. When one more service is created, connections must be created between the nodes on the trail. So it is applicable to simple networks. The network performance can be improved through reasonable settings and the use of static route. Moreover, bandwidth can be reserved for important services. The networking of transparent transmission of Ethernet services is point-to-point.

Procedure
Procedure 1 2 3 4 5 Action Setting the VC4 port of an Ethernet board as SDH NNI (optional) Installing an Ethernet interface board on the T2000 (optional) Configuring Port Attributes and Binding Paths of an Ethernet Board Creating Cross-Connection between the Ethernet and the Line Board Configuring the Static Ethernet Route

2. Installing an Ethernet Interface Board on the T2000 (optional)

Note:
The Ethernet interface unit of some equipment such as the OptiX 155/622H (Metro 1000) integrates the Ethernet board and interface board on itself. So, no independent Ethernet interface board configuration is needed, and this step can be. For other equipment such as the OptiX 2500+ (Metro 3000) and OptiX Metro 3100, their Ethernet boards and interface boards are separated; the configuration of Ethernet interface board is needed. Then, this step is mandatory.
