Installation Precautions

NOTE
This document provides guidelines for quick hardware installation. It describes procedures for onsite installation, but does
not describe pre-delivery assembly.

CAUTION
Safety Information
Always wear protective gloves when lifting or transporting a cabinet to prevent hand injuries or damage to the cabinet surface.
The equipment is heavy. To prevent human injuries or equipment damage, always use a lifting device to transport or position the
equipment. Use a pallet truck or heavy-duty bogie wagon to transport the equipment on even ground, and use a cargo lift to transport
the equipment between different floors. If the equipment room does not have a cargo lift, a stair-climbing truck is recommended to
transport the equipment between different floors.

CAUTION
ESD Protection
Always wear ESD gloves or an ESD wrist strap prior to contact with the equipment or before handling devices, boards, or IC chips
to prevent damage to sensitive components due to electrostatic discharge from the human body. Ensure that the ESD wrist strap is
properly grounded.

ESD jacks on the T64 subrack

ESD jacks on the T32 subrack

Installation Precautions

ESD jacks on the T16 subrack

ESD jacks on the universal platform subrack

CAUTION
Bundling Cables
Binding intervals between cable ties or optical fiber binding straps inside the cabinet cannot exceed 250 mm. (Binding intervals
cannot exceed 200 mm for user cables.)
Binding intervals between cable ties for all cables and corrugated pipes outside the cabinet are determined based on the distance
between the two horizontal beams. If the cable trough does not contain any beams, the binding intervals between cable ties cannot
exceed 250 mm.

CAUTION
Pre-Installation Check
Ensure that the equipment room, cabinets, power supplies, ground cables, optical cables, and associated devices are ready for
installation. Start the installation according to the engineering design documents after confirming that all conditions are met.

Introduction to Installation Features of the OptiX OSN 8800 T64

Precautions for Installing the OptiX OSN 8800 T64:


1. Transportation
Move an N66B cabinet with a tool but not hands to avoid bodily injuries or damages to equipment. To move an
N66 cabinet on a flat ground, use a fork truck or heavy-duty flat car; to move the cabinet from one floor to
another, use a goods elevator. In a telecommunications room without a goods elevator, use auxiliary devices
such as a transportation vehicle applicable to transportation along stairs to move the cabinet.

2. Cabinet installation
There is no space for you to use a tool to install screws on the feet of a cabinet because the
equipment is highly integrated. Therefore you need to remove the DCM frame before installing the
cabinet.

3. Installation of cables and fibers


If there are subracks delivered separately on site, after you install them in a cabinet, connect power cables to
PIU boards, and ground cables, cascading network cables, and cascading fibers to the subracks.

4. Installation of clock cables


Clock cables must be installed on site according to configuration requirements.

5. Installation of fibers
If there are subracks delivered separately on site, after you install them in a cabinet, connect internal cascading
fibers between subracks and external fibers. When connecting fibers between the front side and rear side of the
OptiX OSN 8800 T64 subrack, route fibers through the bottom of the subrack. In this case, the fibers must be
protected in winding pipes at throughholes.

6. Power supply
The maximum power consumption of a fully-configured N66B cabinet is 9600 W and the cabinet requires 16
power supplies.

For more details, see the following parts of this document.

Requirements and Precautions for Operating Boards


CAUTION
Always wear ESD gloves or an ESD wrist strap prior to operating a board to prevent damage to sensitive
components.
Wearing ESD gloves

Wearing an ESD wrist strap

Operating a board without ESD


protection

CAUTION
Hold the front panel of a board with both hands.

CAUTION
Any vacant slot must be covered by a filler panel to prevent foreign objects from entering the subrack or system
ventilation ducts. Foreign objects may cause an NE failure.
Boards are fragile and vulnerable. When transporting or placing a board, exercise caution and ensure that the
board is packed in a dedicated box to protect the board against damage.
Boards must be packed with original packaging materials during transportation. If the original packaging
materials are lost, contact Huawei.

2 Installing Subrack Handles


NOTE
Two handles are delivered with each T32 subrack and T16 subrack. They need to be mounted on the left
and right sides of the subrack for lifting the subrack. After moving a subrack but before installing the subrack
into a cabinet, remove the handle mounted on each side of the subrack.

Handle mounted on the T32


subrack

Handle mounted on the T16 subrack

NOTE
The following describes how to install a handle onto the T32 subrack. You can install a handle onto a T16
subrack in the same way.
Rotate the handle anticlockwise by 30
degrees, align the handle with the mounting
holes on the subrack, and then move the
handle to the subrack.

Apply force upwards to lock the handle.

Rotate the handle clockwise by 30 degrees,


and insert it in the mounting holes.

Hold the handle and lift the subrack.

3 Installing Subracks
CAUTION
An OptiX OSN 8800 T64 subrack is pre-installed in an N66B cabinet. Remember that human safety is paramount.
Protect yourself at all times, especially when lifting or transporting the cabinet.

NOTE
Usually OptiX OSN 8800 T32/T16 and universal platform subracks are also pre-installed in cabinets, and they are
delivered separately only for network expansion. That is, OptiX OSN 8800 T32/T16 and universal platform subracks
usually need onsite installation in a network expansion scenario.

NOTE
1. For safety concern, at least two persons are required to install the subrack. One person is to hold the subrack and the
other person to tighten the panel screws.
2. To deploy T64 and other subracks or T32 and other subracks inside the same cabinet, install them from top to bottom
and front to rear. To deploy T16 subracks or a mix of T16 and universal platform subracks inside a cabinet that has an
electrical subrack pre-installed, install them below the electrical subrack from top to bottom. If the cabinet has no
electrical subrack pre-installed, install them from bottom to top. In any other scenarios, install the subracks (either all
T16 subracks or a mix of T16 and universal platform subracks) from bottom to top.
3. Generally, floating nuts has been installed on the cabinet columns. Therefore, you can directly install a subrack in a
cabinet for network expansion.
4. Before installing a subrack, remove the package of the cables that are bundled inside the cabinet, and then bundle the
cables tidily.
5. Ground cables for subracks have already been installed in a cabinet before delivery. If a subrack is separately
delivered, unpack the ground cable and connect one end of the cable to the subrack ground point. After that, secure the
subrack.
Method for Installing Four Universal Platform Subracks in the Same Cabinet and T32/T16 Subracks

NOTE
1. The T32 subrack is installed in the same way
as the T16 subrack is installed.
2. To deploy four universal platform subracks
in the same cabinet, install them in the same
way as you install the T16 subrack.
3. The figure on the left uses installing a T16
subrack as an example.

4 Checking SCC/XCH Board Battery Jumper Settings


CAUTION
1. Before installing a SCC/XCH board, ensure that its battery jumper has been set properly as shown in the
figure on the right, pins 2 and 3 are capped to enable the supply of battery power. To disable the supply of
battery power, cap pins 1 and 2.
2. If you must retain the original SCC/XCH board data (for example, the SCC/XCH board is delivered with
configurations already provisioned or the SCC/XCH board is used to replace an in-service SCC/XCH board),
cap pins 2 and 3 to enable the supply of battery power to the SCC/XCH board.
3. If the original SCC/XCH board data is not required (for example, the SCC/XCH board will not be
commissioned for a long time), cap pins 1 and 2 to disable the supply of battery power to the SCC/XCH
board.

5 Installing Boards
NOTE
Removing and then re-inserting a board in the running equipment
brings impact on the normal operation of the equipment or even
service interruption. Prior to the board unplugging, remove all optical
fibers connected to it. Do not insert or remove a board connected with
optical fibers.

When a micro switch is present on the


ejector lever of the board front panel, you
can only hold ejector levers inwards or
outwards while pressing the micro switch.

CAUTION
1. Before installing a board, verify that board connectors have no scratches,
holes, or damage, the backplane has no bent pins, and the plastic cover of the
48 V power connector is not detached. If an abnormality is found, contact
Huawei engineers for help.
2. Handle boards gently to avoid damage to board connectors.
3. Wear an ESD wrist strap or ESD gloves during operations.
4. Before inserting a board into a slot, correctly align the insertion holes on
the board with the insertion guide pins on the backplane. If you feel a
blockage when inserting a board into a slot, do not use force to insert the
board. Instead, remove the board and realign the insertion holes on the board
with the insertion guide pins on the backplane. Then insert the board again.

Installing Service Boards


Hold the retaining clip at the top end (the one with "PUSH" identified) with two fingers.
Withdraw the filler panel from the slot.

Installing Cross-Connect Boards or Service Boards in Cross-Connect Board Slots


NOTE
Installing the cross-connect
board

Apply an upward force on the upper ejector


lever and a downward force on the lower
ejector lever, and draw the filler panel out.

The cross-connect board is installed in a similar way in all types


of subracks. The following uses installing a cross-connect board
in a T32 subrack as an example.
Raise the ejector levers of the board with both hands. Push the
board gently along the top and bottom guides. Use both thumbs
to press ejector levers on the board until the board engages with
the backplane socket. Confirm that the plug on the board is
aligned against the socket on the backplane. Press the upper
and lower ejector levers to grip the subrack.

Installing a service board into a cross-connect board slot


in a T16 subrack

NOTE

A cross-connect board slot is too large to hold a service board. Therefore, a special filler panel is therefore
developed for the cross-connect board slot. A service board can be installed in a cross-connect board slot after it is
installed on this special filler panel.
Hold the handle to push the special filler
panel into the slot along the guide rail, as
shown in the figure below.

10 Configuring Master/Slave Subracks


CAUTION
Changing the ID of a subrack leads to service interruption.

NOTE
Among these ID values, only ID1-ID5 are valid. The bits from high to low are ID5-ID1. The value of the DIP
switches is a binary value 0 or 1. When the DIP switch is toggled to ON, the value is set to 0 by default. The value
0 indicates a master subrack, and other values indicate slave subracks.
For details on the principle for configuring the master and slave subracks, see "Master-Slave Subrack" in the
Feature Description.

10 Configuring Master/Slave Subracks


CAUTION
Changing the ID of a subrack leads to service interruption.
DIP switches on the TN18EFI board (for the Universal Platform Subrack)

CAUTION
When it is the first time that the EFI board is installed in an universal platform subrack or when the changed
subrack ID is the same as the previous subrack ID, the subrack_ID LED on the SCC and EFI boards will
display the newly specified subrack ID.
If the newly specified subrack ID differs from the previous subrack ID, the subrack_ID LED on the SCC and
EFI boards will alternately display the previous subrack ID and the EE value. When this occurs, determine
whether the newly specified subrack ID is correct. If it is correct, power-cycle all the PIU boards inside the
subrack to make it take effect. If it is incorrect, configure the DIP switches again to recover the previous
subrack ID.

Type 1: five DIP switches on the board panel

NOTE
The TN18EFI board has a set of five DIP switches whose IDs are ID1-ID5 from the lower bit to the higher
bit. Each DIP switch can be used to set a binary digit, 0 or 1. When the DIP switch is toggled to 0, the
value of the corresponding bit is set to 0.
"00000" indicates the master subrack. The other values indicate slave subracks.

DPD63-8-8 PDU Introduction


RTN(+) terminal blocks and copper fittings for the middle area of the DC PDU

CAUTION
1. There are two types of
RTN(+) terminal blocks for
the DPD63-8-8 PDU and
correspond to two types of
copper fittings.
2. Install corresponding
copper fitting in the middle
area of the DPD63-8-8 PDU
based on the type of the
RTN(+) block.

Installing Copper Fittings


CAUTION

1. Both NEG(-) and RTN(+) terminal pairs must be connected or disconnected.


2. The two types of copper fittings dedicated for the middle area of the DPD63-8-8 PDU are installed in the same
way. The following uses one type of the copper fitting as an example to illustrate the installation.

fitting (left or right)

DANGER
Do not install any copper fitting in the power output areas of the DC PDU. If
copper fittings are required, install them only in the power input areas of the DC
PDU.

NOTE
By default two-in-one copper fittings have been installed on NEG(-) and RTN(+)
terminals of the PDU before the delivery. Based on the site survey result,
determine whether the two-in-one copper fittings pre-installed on NEG(-) terminals
need to be replaced with four-in-one copper fittings and whether additional four-inone copper fittings need to be installed on the RTN(+) terminals in the middle of the
PDU.

Four-in-one copper
fitting (middle)

CAUTION
The blue power cables connecting to the NEG(-) terminals must use two-hole
OT terminals and the BGND cables (black) connecting to the RTN(+) terminals
must use cord end terminals.

Free the two-in-one copper fittings from the NEG(-) input


terminals on the circuit breakers on the PDU and then
remove them.

Position a four-in-one copper fitting to the NEG(-) input


terminals, and secure it by tightening the screws.

8 Power Redundancy

T64 Subrack Power Redundancy

Two PIU boards in hot backup mode supply power to one subrack at the same time. When one of the PIU boards becomes faulty,
the other PIU board continues to supply power to the subrack to ensure that the subrack can still function properly. Each area is
configured with a pair of power supplies in mutual backup.

CAUTION
For the T64 Enhanced subrack, the PIU boards installed back-to-back are in mutual backup.
For the T64 General, T32, and T16 subracks, PIU boards on the left and right sides are in mutual backup.
For the universal platform subracks, the PIU boards are installed on the right side and the upper and lower PIU boards are in
mutual backup.
For details of the backup relationships between PIU boards, see the "Power Redundancy" section.

9 Installing and Routing Subrack Power Cables


CAUTION
On site, you need to connect power cables to PIU boards, and
ground cables, cascading network cables, and cascading fibers to
subracks. Inside a cabinet, power cables, ground cables, and
cascading network cables for the subracks delivered separately have
already been installed according to the positions where these
subracks are to be installed. The connectors of these cables are stuck
with labels indicating the corresponding ports into which these
cables are to be inserted. See the figure on the right.

CAUTION
1. Do not install or remove power cables while the equipment is powered on. Ensure that the power is
switched off prior to removing or installing a power cable to avoid bodily injuries.
2. The DPD63-8-8 PDU and TN16PDU have more than one power input. To power off equipment, do
disconnect all power inputs of the PDU.

Installing and Routing Fibers


1 Precautions
CAUTION
Do not look or stare into optical fibers directly without eye protection.

CAUTION
Wind the external inter-office fibers properly on the ODF before thread them into the cabinet. Do not wind the
fibers inside the cabinet.
Internally cascaded fibers must be separate from the external fibers. Route the external fibers through the
cable-routing area on the rear of the cabinet and the internally cascaded fibers through the cable-routing area
on the front of the cabinet.

NOTE
1. Before routing external fibers, remove the fiber spool of the subrack on this side.
2. After the fiber installation, insert fiber plugs in idle ports and cover idle fibers with fiber caps.
3. Choose a coiling fiber spool according to the length of redundant fibers. Wind the fibers around the big
spool first and then the smaller spool. The fibers should not be coiled too tightly or too loosely. Ensure that
the bending radius of fibers is not less than 30 mm.

NOTE
This procedure describes how to install and route T64 subrack fibers. The procedure for installing and routing T32/T16/universal
platform subrack fibers are similar.

2 Open Corrugated Pipe

NOTE
The open corrugated pipe cannot be loaded with too many optical fibers. A maximum of 60 fibers with 2 mm
diameter are recommended for an open corrugated pipe with 32 mm diameter. The length for the open
corrugated pipe to enter the cabinet is about 10 cm.

4 Installing and Routing Fibers to a DCM Frame


NOTE

Fiber extractor

Fibers have already been connected to a DCM frame before delivery, but fibers need to be installed
on site during capacity expansion. In this scenario, install short-sleeve fibers. Long-sleeve fibers, if

5 Installing and Routing Fibers Between Subracks


CAUTION
Take priority to use 2 m fibers for cascading subracks inside a cabinet. The internally cascaded fibers must be separate from
the external fibers. The external fibers should be routed through the cable-routing area on the rear of the cabinet, and the
internally cascaded fibers should be routed through the cable-routing area on the front of the cabinet. When there are too
many internally cascaded fibers to be routed through the cable-routing area on the front, the remaining fibers can be routed
through the cable-routing area on the rear of the cabinet. Ensure that these cascaded cables are not intertwisted with the
external fibers.

5 Installing and Routing Fibers Between Subracks


CAUTION
When connecting fibers between the front side and rear side of a cabinet, route fibers through the
bottom of the OptiX OSN 8800 T64 subrack inside the cabinet. In this case, the fibers must be
protected in winding pipes at throughholes. See the figure below.

NOTE

The figure below shows the paths for


routing front- and rear-side fibers of
the T64 subrack.

NOTE
When connecting fibers between boards
on the left and right sides of a subrack,
route the fibers under the protective plate
below the XCH. When the slot for the
XCH is inserted with an adaptive frame
to house an optical-layer board, route
fibers to the board above the protective
plate.

NOTE
Cable clips

Ensure that the radius of a fiber bend is 50 mm


or larger. Fibers must be routed and bundled
properly but not over-tightly. After installing
fibers, insert plugs in optical interfaces without
fiber connections and cap the fibers not
connected to optical interfaces.
Fibers need to be installed onsite. Before
installing the fibers, you must install cable clips
at the specified positions, as shown in the
following figure.

3 Routing Fibers in a Fiber Management Frame

CAUTION
Fiber management frames provide routing channels
for external fibers.

Internal cascading fibers have been routed on the


fiber spools of a subrack before delivery. For
external fibers, preferentially route extra fibers on
the ODF if there are many extra fibers. Only a small
number of fibers can be spooled in a fiber
management frame.

During onsite expansion, spool internal cascading


fibers and external fibers in the fiber management
frames.

What to Check For

Method

The cabinet is positioned in the proper place as prescribed by the engineering


design.

Visual inspection

The cabinet components must be installed correctly, without damaged or loosen


parts. There should be no fingerprints, scratch marks or other stains on the cabinet.

Visual inspection

Cable apertures at the top and the bottom of the cabinet are securely sealed.

Visual inspection

Cables are routed according to the engineering design.

Visual inspection

Cables are not damaged or broken, and there are not any joints on the cable. The
cable connectors are connected correctly and securely.

Visual inspection

Cables are laid horizontally or vertically without crossing, and there is moderate
bundling at the bending radius of the fiber patch cords. Labels at both ends of the
cable and fiber are marked correctly, clearly, and neatly.

Visual inspection

The fibers routed outside the cabinet are protected in a corrugated pipe, and are
protected from being pulled out by other cables or objects.

The bending radius of the fiber patch cords is not less than 30 mm. There are not
any sharp components along the routing path for the fibers.

Visual inspection

Fibers are placed in order and are properly bound with optical binders. There are
not any sharp edges.

Checking the Subrack Power-on


Check the connection between the core end terminal of the power cable and the corresponding output terminal of
the power distribution box. Check if all power connectors are connected tightly. If not, use the flat-head screwdriver
to tighten the captive screws on the connectors of power cables.
Check the connection of the other end (with OT naked crimping connector) of the power cable with the PIU board.
Each subrack must be provided with two lines of power supply.
Turn on the power switch of the part A on the DC power distribution box for each subrack. Check if the subrack are
powered on. If powered on, go on turning on the power switch of the part B and then turn off the power switch of the
part A. Check if the subrack are powered on. If powered on, turn on the power switch of the part A.
Check the cabinet power indicator on the top of the cabinet. The green indicator stays on.
When the subrack is powered on, the fan starts to operate. Check the air ventilation at the top and the bottom of the
subrack.
Observe the STATE indicator on the front panel of the fan. Normally, it is always green.
If the STATE indicator is constantly red, it indicates that two or more fans are faulty.
If the STATE indicator is constantly yellow, it indicates that one fan is faulty.

WARNING
Do not insert or remove power plugs and the PIU when the power is on.

Fiber jumper

Optical power meter

Measure the optical power at the OUT port on the FIU board at the transmit end and record
the reading as a.

Measure the output optical power of the ODF at the transmit end and record the reading as b.

Measure the input optical power of the ODF at the receive end and record the reading as c.

Measure the input optical power at the IN port on the FIU board at the receive end and record the
reading as d.

Subtract reading b from reading a to determine the fiber insertion loss on the line side of the upstream station. This
insertion loss must be lower than 1 dB. The fiber connectors on span 1 require cleaning if the insertion loss is
greater than 1 dB. The fibers on span 1 need to be replaced if the insertion loss remains greater than 1 dB after the
fiber connectors are cleaned.
Subtract reading d from reading c to determine the fiber insertion loss on the line side of the downstream station. This
insertion loss must be lower than 1 dB. The fiber connectors on span 2 require cleaning if the insertion loss is greater
than 1 dB. The fibers on span 2 need to be replaced if the insertion loss remains greater than 1 dB after the fiber
connectors are cleaned.
After ensuring that the optical paths on spans 1 and 2 are functioning properly, calculate the actual line attenuation
between the two stations according to the Line attenuation = a - d + 2 formula. (In the formula, 2 indicates 2 dB, the
insertion loss of each FIU board.) The line attenuation must be equal to or lower than the line attenuation specified in
the design documents. In the event that the line attenuation does not fall within the specified range, inform the
customer to rectify or replace the fibers on span 3.
After all issues are resolved, restore all fibers and cable connections, and set up all optical paths from west to east.
Repeat the preceding operations to set up all the optical paths from east to west and ensure that the optical paths
between the existing stations are functioning properly.
