8.1 Resetting the GSCC Board
According to different scenarios, you can use different methods to reset the boards. The following three methods can be applied to reset the GSCC board:
l

Use the NM system to perform warm and cold reset to the GSCC. For detailed operations, refer to 8.3 Resetting Boards by NM. Press the reset button on the GSCC to perform cold reset to the board. Perform cold reset by removing and inserting the GSCC board.

8.2 Resetting Other Boards
When resetting boards, different methods should be applied according to different situations. Other boards can be reset by using two methods:
l l

Warm or cold reset by NM. For details, refer to 8.3 Resetting Boards by NM. Cold reset by removing and inserting boards.

8.3 Resetting Boards by NM
To handle faults of a board, you need to reset the board.

Prerequisite
You must be an NE user with "NE and network operator" authority or higher.

Impact on Services
A warm reset on a board does not affect the service that is running. A cold reset on a board may, however, affect the service that is running.

A 1-micrometer dust particle on a single-mode core can block up to 1% of the light.05 dB.. Cleaning the fiber optical connectors is one of the most basic and key procedures to maintain an optical system. Clean fiber optical components are the basis of quality connections between fiber optical equipments. A particle that partially or completely blocks the core generates strong back reflections. but could completely block the fiber core.1 Overview It is very important to inspect and clean every optical fiber connector before you perform fiber optical connection. This helps clear any dust or dirt and helps provide a clean environment for the fiber optical connection.19 Inspecting and Cleaning the Fiber-Optical Connectors OptiX OSN 3500 Intelligent Optical Transmission System Supporting Tasks 19.

Figure 19-1 Optical fiber connector Any dirt in the fiber connection can cause failure of the component or failure of the entire system. Always follow the procedures when you clean fiber components. other types of dirt must also be cleaned off the end face. optical adapters and attenuators and flanges used in fiber optical connections. This chapter describes how to inspect and clean fiber connectors. This sharply degrades the optical signal. even though dust may not be visible. which causes a loss of 0. Even if a particle is situated on only the cladding or edge of the end face. These types of dirt include: l l l Oils (frequently from human hands) Film residues (condensed from vapors in the air) Powdery coatings (left after water or other solvents evaporate) These types of dirt can be more difficult to remove than dust particles and can also cause damage to equipment if it is not removed. Even microscope dust particles can cause a variety of problems to optical connections. which can cause instability of the laser system. Figure 19-1 shows the adapter and the fiber connector.

cleaning and re-inspection are key steps which must be done before you perform any fiber optical connection. This helps avoid mechanical and electrostatic damages and reduces vibrations.
