Turning Off light on the ADVA optical shelf.
Keywords: ADVA, ADVA light, ADVA Tx light shutdown, Tx light turn off
For instances like Ledcor is on site testing fiber or Sunesys is workng on fibers they often request to shut the light on the fiber so that it does not interere with theit testing process. To turn off the Tx light on the ADVA code version 16.1.1 GUI here's what needs to be done (As given by ADVA support):
* NOTE: While this is the procedure for diabling the service signal the OSC channel ( OSCM in slot 3 most chassis) can not be turned off and will have to be removed to turn this light off Dispatch to each end of the segment is needed and removal fo the sfp facing the toward to the site techs are trying to otdr is needed to remove light from the fiber.
1. Disable the port on the EDFA amplifier.
EDFA slot -> Configure -> Ports -> Edit -> Disable
2. Disable the OSCM-PN port facing towards the other site where you want to disable the TX light.
OSCM-PN slot -> Configure -> Ports -> edit -> Disabled.
Make sure to do the same (steps 1 and 2) for any Amplifier sites along the path. Please refer the faceplate diagram for that (Under backbone section in PennREN - NOC DOC)
3. Also make sure to admin disable the interfaces on the Junipers to avoid any alien waves on the backbone fibers that connect to the ADVA optical shelf.
*NOTE : Please make sure to refer the Faceplate diagrams of the sites (Under backbone section in NOC DOC) to verify the correct card/ports before turning off anything.
