The Wavelength Blocker can be considered as an array of optical gates (such as Variable Optical Attenuators or Liquid Crystal shutters) and optical (on/off) switches placed between a Demultiplexer and a Multiplexer as schematically presented in figure above. It is thus able to selectively attenuate the single channels of an incoming multiplex and even completely switch off selected channels. Note that device implementation of this optoelectronic function varies depending on providers. The present release can manage 96 channels with 50GHz spacing in C+ band. Each channel processed by the Wavelength Manager shall be in one of two possible states : • Express channels shall go through the WavelengthBlocker with a slight attenuation that shall be individually (i.e. on a per channel basis) set up (in a certain range) either by an operator or an algorithm/software process. • Blocked channels shall be blocked by the Wavelength Blocker i.e completely switched off. ALC frequencies shall be Blocked in the WMAN board(s). Whenever channel states are modified, the Optical Channel Monitor shall scan the output and input spectra in order to check that proper attenuations have been set up and proper wavelengths have been blocked. This verification shall also been carried out on a regular basis in order to keep up with any Wavelength Blocker drift. The OCM can be also used to monitor signals from other boards through EXT_IN&1 and EXT_IN2 ports (not available in current release). The dark VOA has two purposes : • First it shall be used to insert an additional loss (offset) experienced by all channels in order to decrease the WB attenuation range employed, thus reducing the PDL and ripple of the latter. • In addition, this normally turned off VOA shall shut down all traffic in case of a power failure (whereas most WBs are normally turned on / transparent without power supply) or board unplugging.

The Optical Add & Drop Coupler (OADC1102) board covers Long Haul R-OADM specific needs. This small height unit consists of one asymetric coupler and one asymetric splitter achieving passive add&drop for opposite directions as illustrated above. The coupler/splitter is broadband (whole extended C-band). Regarding the signal coming from one pre-amplifier : • 30% are sent to express path (input of Wavelength Manager) • 70% are sent to drop path (input of first demultiplexing stage) Regarding the signal outgoing to one booster : • 30% come from express path (output of Wavelength Manager) • 70% come from drop path (output of last multiplexing stage) For Automatic Level Control purposes, on the add path the coupler shall achieve output power level measurement (express path + add path) and provide electrical feedback for ALCT Laser board if this one works in “dynamic” mode.

The OADC1102 is not managed by SW in R3.0A.

ALCATEL 1626 LM R3.0 - OPERATION & MAINTENANCE

ALCT1010 (Automatic Laser ConTrol) is used to to maintain a constant optical power over the whole extended C-Band, to facilitate the loading of the system with a few number of modulated channels or to compensate for the loss of some modulated channels. Typically one board per Line Terminal and 2 boards per OADM/Back-toBack are used. The ALCT1010 board can be used in 2 different configurations : Loading mode and Dynamic mode In loading mode, the ALCT output power (the loop) is controlled via the electrical signal of the internal photodiode. The tuning is done with the OP_WDM_L provisionable parameter by the user or by the LALC algorithm. In that case, OP_WDM is the ALCT output power. In Dynamic mode, the ALCT output power is controlled with a hardware loop from the BMDX output. In that case, the tuning is done with OP_WDM_D that is the BMDX output power target and that does not correspond to the ALCT output power. This loop control uses backplane links. 1626 LM loading plan ALCT1010 unit must be in band 5 and removed from the 88th channel, Channel loading order: 7, 8, 6,4, 9, 3, 2, 10, 1, 11, 12, and then 5 on G652, Channel loading order with 100GHz spacing : 7, 8, 6, 4, 9, 3, 2, 10, 1, 11, 12, 5 on G655 or tight link G652. Then, in the same band order the remaining channels are loaded. Nevertheless, there are 11 versions of the ALCT1010 unit available for each of the bands 2 to 12. As a function of the links or as a function of the segment of the link (BOADM case), the designer may have selected one of this unit to provide the ALC wavelength. In that case, a specific loading plan must be given in the LDT. In case of link with BOADM, the band related to ALC wavelength must never be in pass-through.

Inter-shelf link (IS-LINK) allows the communication between the EC and all the SCs of the NE. It’s a 10Mbps Ethernet bus. The connections can be performed by means of BNC or RJ45 connectors, located on the ESCT1000 front panel. Using BNC connectors (10 Base-2 interface), each shelf is connected to the adjacent one by means of a T connector. In Master shelf only, the above BNC or RJ45 connector can be connected to the 1353NM.

LOFA11yz_R : LOFA configured as Pre-Amplifier or Receive Amplifier (signal received from WDM line) LOFA11yz_T : LOFA configured as Booster or Transmit Amplifier (signal received from BMDX or OMDX or LOFA_I) LOFA11yz_I : LOFA configured as Intermediate Amplifier. Can be in receive or transmit direction. Associated to “ LOFA_T “ if used in transmit direction or associated from “LOFA_R” if used in receive direction. BMDX1x00 : Generally, “Associated from” field = R/SR/S/SB of amplifier sending signal to BMDX (LOFA_R or LOFA_I) and “Associated to” field = R/SR/S/SB of amplifier receiving signal from BMDX (LOFA_T or LOFA_I). ALCT1010 : To associate the board to BMDX, choose the Configuration – Equipment Cable List – Traffic Cable Configuration menu option (see Section 2 - Module 6). TRBC1111 : After setting the board, user will have to set some SFP drawers on this board to define the B&W interfaces he wants to use. MCC30 : User will have to choose between MCC30_1 or MCC30_2 (to be confirmed). If you have provisioned MCC30_2, configure the bit-rate of the expected payload. Then configure the cross-connection type (see Section 2 : Module 6). • “add-drop” to connect an external client to WDM network. Then set the SFP drawer on this board to define the B&W interface. • “Pass-through” to perform a 3R regenerative pass-through.

The principle of the Dynamic ALC is that ALCT output power is tuned in order to maintain BMDX-mux output power (which is constituted by the power emitted by the transponders and the ALC) at a provisioned level. Preliminary condition : ALCT1010 needs to receive information from BMDX to be able to operate in Dynamic mode. Consequently, BMDX and ALCT1010 must be located in one of the following positions in the shelf : position of ALCT in dynamic mode

Even if LOFA_T : Target Input Power is written, this parameter is the BMDX mux target output power (the difference between LOFA input power and BMDX mux output power does not exceed 0.5 dB). 8) Click on Set. 9) Click on Close to finish.

The purpose of ALCT1010 is to provide a dummy channel that optically loads the transmitted spectrum. ALCT stands for Automatic Level ConTrol. Two parameters are provisionable on ALCT1010 : SBS suppression Output power level configuration SBS : Stimulated Brillouin Scattering. When SBS suppression is activated, a SBS modulation is added on the wavelength (low frequency modulation) in order to reduce Stimulated Brillouin Scattering. • It is suggested to keep the default configuration: SBS suppression activated.
