Personal Injury

WARNING
The laser beam emitted from the optical interface is invisible infrared light, which may cause
permanent eye injury. During maintenance, do not stare at the optical interface.

DANGER
Laser beams from the optical ports on boards or from the fiber connectors cause eye damage.
Do not look directly at the optical ports or fiber connectors during the installation and
maintenance of boards or fibers. Do not shine laser beams into the eyes of other workers.

DANGER
The Raman amplifier board is very high. Shut down the pump laser before you insert or remove
fiber connectors on the Raman amplifier board to help prevent personal injury that is caused by
high optical power.

To prevent eye damage in the case of an optical port that is in use, use protective caps to cover
the optical interface and the fiber connector after you remove the fiber from the optical interface.

OptiX OSN 8800 Intelligent Optical Transport Platform
Installation Guide 1 Safety Instructions

Laser transceivers are used in optical transmission systems and associated test tools. A bare
optical fiber can produce a laser beam, which has high power density but is invisible. Eyes will
be injured when a beam of light enters eyes.
Generally, looking at an un-terminated optical fiber or a damaged optical fiber without eye
protection at a distance of greater than 150 mm does not cause eye injury. However, eyes may
be hurt if an optical aid such as a microscope, magnifying glass, or eye loupe is used to look at
an un-terminated optical fiber even though the distance is greater than 150 mm.

Equipment Damage
To prevent equipment damage when you handle the equipment, take the following precautions:
l Use protective caps to cover optical interfaces and optical connectors that are not in use.
l After you remove a fiber jumper from an optical interface, use protective caps to cover the
optical interface and the fiber jumper connector.
l Use an attenuator to prevent high optical power from damaging the optical receiver while
using a fiber jumper for the hardware loopback on an optical interface.
l Before using an optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR), remove the fiber jumper
between the opposite site and the optical interface . Such a measure also prevents high
optical power from damaging the optical receiver.
l Do not insert or remove a that is connected with a fiber.

CAUTION
The optical power of the Raman amplifier board is very high. Observe the following precautions
when using the Raman amplifier board to prevent damage to the equipment.
l Do not use fiber connectors within 0–20 km. The fibers at every joint point must be spliced.
l The single-point additional loss within 0–10 km must be smaller than 0.1 dB (G.652) or 0.2
dB (G.655) and the single-point return loss must not be smaller than 40 dB.
l The single-point additional loss within 10–20 km must be smaller than 0.2 dB (G.652) or 0.4
dB (G.655) and the single-point return loss must not be smaller than 40 dB.
l Fiber connections must be complete before you enable the lasers on the Raman amplifier
board. Make sure that the fiber connectors are clean. Otherwise, the fiber connectors might
be damaged when you insert or remove the fiber connectors.
l The optical power of the LINE interface on the Raman amplifier board is very high. The
LSH/APC optical connectors must be used in the fiber that is connected to the LINE interface.
l For the Raman amplifier board with backward pump, the strong pump light enters the fiber
through the input end (LINE) instead of the output end (SYS). Do not add boards or non-
fiber devices, such as attenuators or fiber jumpers, at the input end.
l The bent radius of the fiber that is connected to the LINE interface on the Raman amplifier
board must be larger than 30 mm to prevent the fiber from being burned.

Safety Guidelines
Follow the following guidelines to avoid laser radiation:
l Only qualified personnel are allowed to perform laser-related operations.

Issue 18 (2012-06-22) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential 10


Copyright © Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.
OptiX OSN 8800 Intelligent Optical Transport Platform
Installation Guide 1 Safety Instructions

l Wear a pair of eye-protective glasses when you are handling lasers or fibers.
l Make sure that the optical source is switched off before disconnecting optical fiber
connectors.
l Do not look at the end of an exposed fiber or an open connector when you are not sure
whether the optical source is switched off or not.
l Use an optical power meter to check that the optical source is switched off and verify that
it is off by measuring the optical power.
l Before opening the front door of an optical transmission system, make sure that you are
not exposed to laser radiation.
l Do not use an optical aid such as a microscope, a magnifying glass, or an eye loupe to view
the optical connector or fiber.

Handling Fibers
Read the instructions before handling fibers:

l Only trained and qualified personnel can cut or splice fibers, check and clean fiber
connectors.
l Before cutting or splicing a fiber, ensure that the fiber is disconnected from the optical
source. After disconnecting the fiber, use protecting caps to protect all the optical
connectors.

1.6 High-Altitude Operations


When installing and maintaining the equipment of Huawei, follow the safety precautions of

Background Information
Generally, the board has been installed in the subrack properly before delivery and is shipped
together with the subrack. If a carton is used to pack boards for shipping, unpacking and checking
are necessary when the boards arrive at the destination. (Generally, a carton is used when boards
are required for capacity expansion.) The boards are put into shielding bags for transportation.
Take ESD protection measures when you unpack the boards to prevent damage to them.

Precautions

CAUTION
Electronic circuits and components are extremely sensitive to electrostatic discharge (ESD).
When handling circuit boards, make sure that you wear a securely grounded ESD wrist strap or
ESD gloves, and only hold the edge of boards during operation.

Procedure
Step 1 Wear a securely grounded ESD wrist strap(or ESD gloves) and make sure that it is securely
grounded.
Step 2 Cut the straps with diagonal pliers and use a paper knife to split the tape along the seam between
the cover and the box body. See Figure 2-14.

CAUTION
Do not cut too deep into the carton with the paper knife. Otherwise, the knife might scratch the
articles inside.

NOTE

l Each board is packed in both a cushion foam and a shielding bag. Keep the bags properly. They can
be used later for keeping the boards or packing the damaged boards returned for repair.
l The ambient temperature and humidity may have an impact on the boards. In each shielding bag there
is a small bag of desiccant, which shall not be thrown away.
l Wait for at least 30 minutes before unpacking if the board is just moved from a cold, dry place to a
warm, damp place. Otherwise, moisture will condense on the board surface and damage the
components.

Step 3 Open the carton and check whether the number and type of the boards are consistent with what
is marked on the carton label.
Step 4 Check that there is no evident damage on the board package.
Step 5 Open the board box and take the board out of the shielding bag.
l Hold the bottom of the shielding bag with the left hand.
l Take the board out of the bag gently by its front panel with the right hand.
l Do not touch any electronic component on the board surface to avoid damage.
l Keep the bags properly.
Step 6 Check whether any board is physically damaged. If any board damage is found, contact Huawei.
Step 7 If no problem is found, put the board back into the board box and put it in the place specified
by the customer.
l If you are going to install the board right after unpacking, place the board on an antistatic
surface to discharge the static electricity.
l If you are going to install the board at a later time, pack the board using the original materials
and place them at a cool dry place without direct sunshine or strong electromagnetic radiation.
----End

2.5.4 Requirements of Inspection


The received goods must be inspected against the Packing List item by item.

7.2 Installing Boards


This section describes the procedure of installing and removing a board.

WARNING
The electrostatic charge from human body can damage the electric components in the board,
such as large-scale ICs. Always wear an ESD strap whenever touching a board or a metal
component of the equipment, and ensure the ESD strap is well grounded.

7.2.1 Board Overview


The board is equipped with a front panel. The front panel has two small handles at the top and
the bottom respectively. The handles lock the board, and help you remove or insert the board.
There is board name, indicators and bar code on the front panel. The indicators are used to
indicate working status of the boards. The bar code provides information such as board model
and production batch.
On the back of the board, there is a connector and an anti-mis-insertion guide hole. The connector
is used to connect the board to the backplane. The guide hole ensures that the board is correctly
inserted into the corresponding slot and prevents the board from being inserted into an incorrect
slot. This avoids damaging the backplane or the board.
The board appearance is shown in Figure 7-14.

Installation Guide 14 Powering on and Checking the Equipment

l Maximum power consumption: 3500 W


l Fuse current: Four 63 A
For 8800 T64:
l Maximum power consumption: 6500 W
l Fuse current: Eight 63 A

NOTE

The maximum power consumption refers to the maximum power supply capability and heat dissipation
capability of a single subrack.

Step 2 Compute the fuse current of the power supply device with a joint consideration of the equipment
configuration in the equipment room.
NOTE

The fuse capacity of the power supply device (nominal current of an air breaker) needs to ensure that the
equipment can run normally with the maximum power consumption. The recommended fuse capacity is 63 A,
which can satisfy future expansion requirements in all scenarios.
If conditions of a telecommunications room is limited, you can use the following formula to calculate the fuse
capacity according to the application scenario and future expansion requirements.
Fuse capacity = Estimated maximum power consumption of a subrack/Minimum working voltage of a subrack
If the nominal current of an air breaker is not restricted, the default value is recommended. If the nominal current
of an air breaker is restricted, you can calculate the fuse capacity by using the preceding formula.
l Estimated maximum power consumption of a subrack: indicates the maximum power consumption when a
subrack is fully configured during future expansion (55°C).
l To obtain the estimated maximum power consumption of OptiX OSN 8800 T64 subrack, refer to the
power consumption data in a typical configuration condition specified inOptiX OSN 8800 T64Subrack
Structurein the Hardware Description;
l To obtain the estimated maximum power consumption of OptiX OSN 8800 T32 subrack, refer to the
power consumption data in a typical configuration condition specified inOptiX OSN 8800 T32Subrack
Structurein the Hardware Description;
l To obtain the estimated maximum power consumption of OptiX OSN 8800 T16 subrack, refer to the
power consumption data in a typical configuration condition specified inOptiX OSN 8800 T16Subrack
Structurein the Hardware Description;
or calculate the sum of maximum power consumption of all boards in a subrack in an actual configuration
condition.
l Minimum working voltage of a subrack: indicates the minimum voltage required for a subrack to work
normally, that is, -40 V.

Step 3 Check if fuse current of the power supply equipment meets the requirement.

A.1 Equipment Room Environment Requirements


This section describes the operation environment of the optical transmission equipment.

Good operation environment is the key to guarantee a safe operation.The equipment room for
the transmission equipment should be away from the area with high temperature, heavy dust,
low voltage, harmful gas, or explosive material. In addition, the place with frequent strong
vibration or loud noise, and the place where the major step-down substation and traction
substation locate are not suitable for the equipment room. When you make the engineering
design, determine the address for equipment room based on factors such as hydrographic and
geologic features, earthquake and transportation. In addition, take the communication network
planning and communication technology requirements into the overall consideration.

The engineering design for the equipment room should strictly meet the requirements for
environment for the optical synchronous transmission equipment. The requirements include
items such as construction, architecture, heating, ventilation, and lighting of the equipment room.
In the mean time, regulations on enterprise, environmental protection, fire fighting, and air
defense, and special technical designs related to building construction should also be observed.

Site requirements are as follows:

l The site should be kept away from pollution sources. For sources of heavy pollution such
as the smeltery and coal mine, keep a distance of 5 km. For sources of medium pollution
such as the chemical, rubber and galvanization industries, keep a distance of 3.7 km. For
sources of light pollution such as food and tanner industries, keep a distance of 2 km. If
these sources of pollution cannot be avoided, the equipment room must be in the perennial
upwind direction of the pollution sources. In addition, quality equipment room and
protection product must be adopted.
l The ventilation port of the equipment room must be kept away from the exhaust of city
waste pipes, big cesspools and sewage treatment tanks. The equipment room should be kept
in the positive pressure state lest the corrosive gases enter the equipment room and erode
components and circuit boards.
l The equipment room should be kept away from the industrial and heating boilers.
l It is best to locate the equipment room in or above the second floor. If this requirement
cannot be met, the ground for equipment installation in the equipment room must be at least
600 mm above the maximum flood level in the local record.
l The equipment room should be kept away from livestock farms. If this requirement cannot
be met, it should be located in the perennial upwind direction of the livestock farms.
l The equipment room should be kept 3.7 km away from the seaside or salt lake. If this
requirement cannot be met, the equipment room should be airtight with cooling facilities.
In addition, the alkalized soil cannot be used as the construction material. Otherwise, the
equipment applicable in atrocious environment must be used.

Item Description

DC power The working ground of the office, that is, the anode of a -48 V DC power
supply supply or the cathode of a 24 V power supply, should be led from the in-
grounding door grounding bus line by proximate. The grounding cable should satisfy
the maximum load of the equipment. The power supply facilities for the
office are to possess a DC working neutral line, which is introduced from
the general grounding bus line or the protection grounding bar of the
equipment room.

Equipotential All communication equipment and auxiliary equipment in the room such
connection as the mobile base station and the transmitting, exchanging, power and
distribution frame should be connected to the protection ground. The
protection grounding of all equipment in the communication office should
share a same general grounding bar, while that of the same equipment

ground and protection ground of the communication equipment in the
equipment room should adopt the joint grounding mode, that is, they share
a same grounding network. Protection grounding efforts should also be
done to the indoor cable rack, equipment chassis, metal ventilation pipe,
metal door or window.

General The AC neutral line is forbidden to be connected to the protection ground

A.10 Power Supply


This section describes the DC power supply system.

The working power voltage for the equipment ranges from -40 V to -72 V. If the output voltage
of the power supply in the equipment room is –48V, the voltage between the input cable terminals
should be in the range from –40 V to –57.6 V. If the output voltage of the power supply in the
equipment room is –60V, the voltage between the input cable terminals should be in the range
from –48 V to –72 V. The transmission equipment offers a transmission path for communication
networks, so its interruption will have a wide influence. Therefore, the DC power distribution
system should be protected against power failure and configured with storage batteries. To deal
with a long-term power outage, a diesel generator should be equipped as the standby AC power
supply for the backbone transmission equipment. The DC power supply system consists of
storage battery, primary power supply (rectifier), DC distributor and control panel.

Storage battery
Storage battery is an essential component of the DC power distribution system. Functionally, it
serves to:

l Stabilize the voltage for the transmission equipment to work reliably.


l Store energy. In the case of outage of mains, the storage battery can feed power for a period
of time, which depends on its capacity, so that the communication will not be interrupted
immediately.
l Filter for large capacitors. The storage batteries are useful for absorbing surge voltage from
rectifiers and preventing noise and power frequency interference from getting into the
communication equipment.
l Automatically shut down. When the voltage of the storage battery drops to below -43 V,
the control circuit can automatically shut down the output.

The storage battery of OptiX optical transmission equipment is charged and discharged under a
low, constant voltage. Table A-8 shows the relevant requirements.

Primary power supply (rectifier)


The requirements for the primary power supply are as follows:
l Primary power supplies shall be able to operate in parallel, and there should be current
equalizing device between them.
l The primary power supplies should be equipped with a current limiting device.
l The output voltage of the primary power supply should meet the requirement for initial
charging of storage batteries, that is 2.35 x 24 = 56.4 V DC (when the power supply is -48
V DC)
l A DC voltmeter and an ammeter should be installed for the primary power supplies.
l The efficiency of the primary power supply should be more than 85% and its power factor
more than 0.8.
l Natural cooling is recommended for the primary power supply. The primary power supply
should be able to work continuously with full load within 0°C-40°C.
l The output noise voltage (measured with a psophometer, plus weighing factors) of the
primary power supply should meet the requirements shown in Table A-9.
l The primary power supply should be able to automatically shut down the output at a low
voltage.

DC distributor and control panel


l The capacity of the primary power supply should be designed according to the power
consumption of the transmission equipment of the terminal office, and a certain margin
should be reserved. Generally, high frequency switching power supplies with a high
switching efficiency should be adopted, which should work in N+1 hot standby mode.
There should be an output current equalizer for each power module. The failure of a single
power module will not affect the normal operation of the whole DC power distribution
system.
l Each control panel can access a minimum of two groups of storage batteries. When one of
them fails, the other can supply power instead.
l Each control panel can access a minimum of five primary power supplies.
l The power supply equipment should be capable of automation, so as to satisfy the non-
attendant requirement.
l When the primary power supply charges the storage batteries in floating charge mode, the
number of primary power supplies put into operation depends on the load. When one
primary power supply becomes faulty, it will drop out automatically, while the standby
primary power supply will automatically go into operation.
l In the case of mains outage, storage batteries will discharge. When the mains resumes, it
will automatically recharge the discharged storage batteries with a current 0.1 to 0.15 times
of the battery capacity. When the charging voltage reaches 56.4 V, it will automatically
change to constant-voltage charging.
l When the storage batteries are fully charged, they will automatically change to floating
charge.
The OptiX optical transmission equipment also has critical restriction on random transient
noises, which include the abnormal operation noise of the equipment caused by external
magnetic interference and the interference from the equipment itself and the grounding cables.
The shorter the duration of the transient pulse, the higher values of such transient noises can be
allowed. For the allowable values, see Figure A-3.

l When the power supply equipment fails or works abnormally, visual and audible alarms
should be given. Such alarm information should be able to be sent to the operation and
maintenance center.
l In case short circuit occurs to a tributary of the power supply system, the whole power
distribution system should not be affected by the sharp voltage reduction. And the peak
striking voltage should not cause any breakdowns to the transmission equipment.

Suggestions for basic DC power supply


l It is recommended that the independent power supply mode be adopted. In the independent
power supply mode, multiple DC power supply systems are provided and multiple locations
are installed with the power supply devices.
l Use the standard DC power supply system and set the output voltage of the communication
power supply system to be within the required voltage range.
l To improve the reliability of the power supply system, you need to improve the reliability
of the AC power supply system and reduce the capacity of the storage batteries properly.
For the small-sized communication buildings whose reliability of the AC power supply
system is difficult to be improved, the capacity of the storage batteries can be expanded
properly.
l The total capacity of the high frequency switch rectifier must meet the requirements of the
communication load power and the charge power of the storage batteries. The rectifier
modules must be configured in redundancy mode. When the number of active modules is
smaller than or equal to 10, a standby module is configured. When the number of active
modules is greater than 10, a standby module is configured for every ten active modules.
l The storage batteries must be divided into two or more groups. The total capacity is
determined by the independent feeding duration of the storage batteries. In most
communication buildings, the storage battery groups must ensure at least one-hour feeding
duration.

The OptiX transmission equipment room is equipped with three lighting systems.
The OptiX transmission equipment room is equipped with three lighting systems:

l Backup lighting system, which is powered by backup power supply (diesel electric
generator) of the office.
l Emergency lighting system, which is powered by storage batteries when the mains supply
has been interrupted but the backup power supply has not yet started to supply power.

A.12 Protection System


This section describes the requirements for the protection system.

ESD protection
The equipment-affecting electrostatic induction comes from the external electric field such as
outdoor high voltage transmission line or lightning. It also comes from the internal system such
as indoor environment, floor materials or equipment structure.

Static electricity may damage the chips on integrated circuit boards and cause faults in software
and electronic switch. Statistics shows that 60 percent of the damaged circuit boards are caused
by static electricity. It is essential to take effective ESD protection measures.

The following measures are recommended:

l Ground the equipment well. While laying the raised floor covered with semiconductive
materials, copper foil should be used for grounding at a number of points on the floor (the
copper foil should be placed between the cement ground and the semiconductive floor and
should be connected with the grounding cable).
l Take dust-proof measure. Dust may do great harm to the optical synchronous transmission
equipment. Dusts or other particles getting into the equipment room may cause poor
connection between connectors or metal connecting points. When the humidity in the room
is high, dust can cause electrical leakage. It is found in maintenance that the equipment
failure is often caused by accumulated dusts. Especially, when the humidity in the room is
very low, electrostatic adherence is likely to occur.
l Keep proper temperature and humidity. Too high humidity may make the metal components
rusty, while too low humidity may induce static electricity.
l Always wear an ESD-preventive wrist strap and lab coat when touching a circuit board to
prevent electrostatic damage to the equipment.

Interference prevention
With the development of technologies and social economy, more and more electromagnetic
signals are transmitted in the air. They may affect the communication quality by causing cross-
talk and stray noise, and even result in communication interruption. The electromagnetic
interference (EMI) sources include:

l The corona discharge of the electric transmission line


l The transformer
l Switches
l Waveform distortion of the power supply network caused during the operation of large
equipment
l Radio frequency (RF) interference

Issue 18 (2012-06-22) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential 122

OptiX OSN 8800 Intelligent Optical Transport Platform
Installation Guide A Operating Environment and Grounding Specifications

l Natural interference sources such as terrestrial magnetic field and external radiation
The interference, from either inside or outside the equipment or the application system, affects
the equipment through conductive modes such as capacitance coupling, inductance coupling,
electromagnetic wave radiation, common impedance (including grounding system) and cable
(power and signal cables). In terms of external relations of the equipment, interference is from
the signal cable, power cable, grounding system and spatial electromagnetic wave.
Integrated circuits (ICs) have the interference resistance capability to a degree. However when
the external noises go beyond their anti-interference tolerance, corrupted signals and even system
malfunction will be caused. It is impossible to eliminate or shield all the interference sources,
but the following measures can be taken to suppress the interference signals:
l High frequency interference in the power supply network is generated when the primary
coil of the power supply transformer is coupled to the secondary coil through distributed
capacitors. To suppress such interference, we can use an appropriate transformer, and install
a low-pass filter at the inlet of the power supply cable.
l The interference of the transient voltage in the power supply network can be reduced by
inputting power directly from the primary transformer with a filter capacitor for the optical
synchronous transmission equipment.
l When the optical synchronous transmission equipment works in the 50 Hz mains power
supply network with the above interference, the surge voltage caused by the power supply
network and the over-voltage generated by lightening will be passed to the power supply
of the optical synchronous transmission equipment, which leads to computing errors of the
processors. Therefore, before directly using the mains supply, effective measures against
interference from power supply network should be taken.
l The key to eliminate the interference from the grounding system is to avoid loops among
various grounds, such as the signal ground (including analog and digital grounds), BGND,
PGND and shield ground, or loops formed by large distributed capacitors. Otherwise, the
common impedance interference from the grounding system may affect the operation of
the equipment. In buildings other than high-rises, the working ground of the optical
transmission equipment should be separated as far as possible from the ground for
electricity equipment and lightning protection device.
l Prevent electromagnetic radiation interference from the surroundings to the equipment. In
some integrated communication buildings, if there is a high frequency transmitter there, its
influence on the optical transmission equipment should meet the relevant requirements.
Independent power supplies are recommended for them.
l EMI from the telecommunications line should be restrained. Influenced by high frequency
electromagnetic field (external interference), high longitudinal voltage will occur to the
core and sheath of the communication cable. Because of the asymmetry of cores in the
cables, the longitudinal voltage will generate a horizontal noise voltage at the ends of the
cores. When both ends of the cable sheath are grounded, the sheath will function as a
shielding layer, greatly reducing the longitudinal voltage and reducing the interference
voltage. Other effective methods include: reduce the voltage or current of the interference
source; reduce the line length and the spacing of the conducting wires to reduce the area
of the affected loop; directly place the insulated conducting wires on the grounded floor;
use a special grounding feedback cable to avoid co-impedance; or twist the signal cable
and the feedback cable together to offset partial peripheral electromagnetic interference,
and so on.

Fire protection
For small equipment rooms, a certain number of portable fire extinguishers should be equipped
in each room for an initial fire control. In large equipment rooms, fire extinguishing facilities
should be equipped. An automatic fire alarm system should also be equipped in the equipment
room. All telecom buildings with fire alarm system should have fire emergency lighting system
and evacuation instruction marks at important places, paths and gateways.

Anti-earthquake demand
The designed anti-earthquake intensity of the telecom equipment room must be one degree
(Richter scale) higher than that for the common buildings. The equipment room building that
cannot meet the requirement should be reinforced. When installing the OptiX optical
transmission equipment, the following anti-earthquake measures should be taken.
l Use steel framework for the cabinet of the equipment. There are locking devices to fix the
boards in the cabinet.
l The cabinet is reinforced with slide rail on the top and supports at the bottom.

Lightning protection
Chimneys, antennae or other things that are over 15 m tall on the top of the equipment room
building should be designed according to the lightning protection requirements for civil
buildings.
Measures should be taken against direct flash and intrusion of lightning current. In the main
high-rise transmission building, protective measures should be taken to prevent side lightning
strokes, especially in frequent lightning areas. Therefore designers should take actual conditions
into consideration and take appropriate measures. For example, connect the metal external
window frame to the lightning protection wire; along the height of the building, place the
lightning protection metal bands at a definite spacing on the outside wall, and so on.
The main equipment-room building should be provided with the following lightning protection
measures:
l The building should be installed with lightning arrester nets or bands at the positions
susceptible to lightning strokes. Lightning prevention wires or lightning rods should be
installed on the top of chimneys and antennas that are protruding from the building. The
cross-sectional area of the grounding wire of the lightning protection device should not be
smaller than 120 mm2, while the space between the wires not larger than 30 m.
l The earth resistance of the earthing/grounding system is recommended to be less than 10
ohms, and the equipment grounding should be in accordance with national and local
electrical codes as well.
l Outdoor cables and metal pipes should be grounded before entering the building, and the
outdoor overhead cables should be equipped with lightening protection devices at the inlet
of the building.
l It is suggested to use roof plates, beams and pillars made of reinforced concrete and the
reinforcement bar as the ground wires of lightening arresters.
In the past lightning protection grounding of the building was separate from the grounding for
telecom system and power supply system, and a large distance was required between the
grounding objects. However, the distance requirement is not satisfied due to small space of the
building. In fact, they cannot be separated in most cases, so joint grounding system is
recommended for the lightening protection grounding of the building. The joint grounding

system shall connect the telecom BGND, PGND, lightning protection grounding of the building,
and grounding of the power frequency AC power supply system. A high earth resistance of the
joint grounding system is required. The earth resistance required by telecommunication is far
lower than 10 ohms, and the grounding requirements for different telecom devices vary, so the
resistance of the joint grounding system should be determined according to the minimum
resistance required for the grounding device.
It is recommended to use steel bars in the walls and pillars of the building as ground wires for
lightening protection. These wires should be electrically connected so as to equalize the electric
potential in the building.

Seen from the cabling end of the equipment, the text part of the label is on the right side of the
cable. The side with "TO:" that is facing outside carries the location information of the opposite
end, and the other side carries the location information of the local end. Therefore, the
information in Area 1 at one end is the same as the information in Area 2 at the other end of the
cable, and vice versa. In other words, the local information at one end is called the opposite
information at the other end.

C.2.3 Remarks
To use labels, focus on the following points.
l When printing/writing and affixing labels, pay attention to keep the labels clean.
l Since the label paper is made of moistureproof and waterproof material, ink-jet printers
and ink pens are forbidden for printing and writing labels.
l Labels should be affixed with good order in alignment.
l Cable ties should be bundled in the same position of power cables, with identification plates
on the same side.
l The positions of "up", "down", "right" or "left" are all based on the viewpoint of the
engineering person who is working on the label.

C.3 Filling Information on Labels

Installation Guide C Engineering Labels

Content Meaning

MN(BC)- -48V2 On the loaded cabinet side, MN identifies the row and column number
of the power distribution equipment like the control cabinet and
MN(BC)-BGND distribution box, BC identifies the row and column number of the –
MN(BC)-PGND 48 V connector (if there is no row number or column number, or the
connector can be identified without them, BC can be omitted). BGND
and PGND have no row and column number for identification.
On the power cabinet side, only MN is used to identify the cabinet.

The label only carries location information about the opposite equipment, the control cabinet or
the distribution box, while information of the local end is not necessary. Table C-2 lists the
information of two –48 V power supplies on the label. The information for other DC voltages
(such as –60 V) should be given in similar methods.
Make sure that labels are affixed in correct direction. That is, after the cable ties are bundled
onto the cable, the identification plates with the labels should face up, and the text on the labels
in the same cabinet should be in the same direction, as shown in Figure C-9.

(1) (2)

On the loaded cabinet side, the label marked with "A01/B08- –48V2" on the cable indicates that
the cable is –48V2 DC supply, which is from the 8th connector on the second row of –48 V bus
bar in the cabinet on Row A, and Column 1 in the machine room.
On the distribution box side, the label marked with "B03- –48V2" indicates that the cable is –
48 V2 DC supplies, which is from the loaded cabinet on Row B, Column 03 in the equipment
room.

NOTE

l In the power distribution box (or the first power cabinet of a row in the transmission machine room),
every terminal block on the –48V connector bar has a numeric identification. For example, in the above
label of "A01/B08- –48V2", "08"(or sometimes "8") is the numeric identification of the terminal block.
l PGND and BGND are two copper bars, on which the terminal blocks are short-circuited. Therefore,
which terminal is connected makes no difference. It is only necessary to give the row and column of
the power distribution box, instead of giving the specific serial number of the terminal block on the
copper bar. For example, if the label on the loaded cabinet side is "A01-BGND", it means that the
power cable is a BGND that connects BGND copper bar in the power distribution box on Row A,
Column 01 in the machine room. Information on the labels for PGND cables should be given in the
similar way.

MN MN: serial M: The cabinet rows from front to back are numbered from
number of the A to Z.
cabinet in the N: The cabinet columns from left to right are numbered from
machine room 01 to 99.
For example, A01 is the cabinet in Row A and Column 01.

NOTE

Generally, the above numbering method is enough to identify the position of a specific cabinet. If cabinets
are installed in a back-to-back manner, the facing direction of the cabinet must be specified, the numbering
method like MNO is used. Here, "O" means the direction of the cabinet, which can be "A" or "B". On the
cable labels described below, this numbering method is used, unless otherwise stated.

The label on the alarm cable carries simple information, and only part of the text area needs to
be filled in. It is recommended to keep the whole length of the label instead of cutting out the
blank area.

OptiX OSN 8800 Intelligent Optical Transport Platform
Installation Guide E The Requirements of Cabling and Bundling

E.1 The Requirements of Cabling


Describes the method and requirements of cable routing.

l For equipment room installed with supports and ESD protection floor, cables can be
arranged in downward mode. That is, all cables can be routed through the interlayer of the
floor or the cable trough. If the upward cabling mode is adopted, cabling rack is required
above the cabinet for holding cables.
l The specifications and cross-sectional area of the cable, and the route and position for
cabling should be designed beforehand.
l All cables should be arranged neatly, with their sheaths remaining intact.
l Communication cables, such as alarm cables, network cables and clock cables, should be
arranged separately with the power cable and optical fibers.
l Turnings of the cable should be smooth, with the bend radius reaching 60mm or above.
l Any damage to the insulation layer of the conducting line is not allowed.
l The cable arrangement should take the future maintenance and capacity expansion into
consideration.

E.2 The Requirements of Bundling


Describes the method and requirements of cable binding.

l Bundling of the cable should be tidy, clear and elegant. As a general rule, cables are grouped
by types, or grouped as needed when they are in a large number. Bind them with cable ties
and route them in either upward or downward cabling mode in the cabling area at the two
sides of the cabinet.
l Cables must be bundled when arranged in ducts. Bind the cables closely with appropriate
tightness. The space between the cable ties should be even and the overall appearance of
the cabling nice.
l You may not bind the cables when arranged in cable troughs. But they should be placed
tidy and straight in the trough with no crossover. Moreover, the cables can not overflow
the trough. At two ends and turnings of the trough, use a plastic clip for the cables.
l Cables both inside and outside the cabinet must be bundled. Keep the cables bundled closely
and neatly.
l Use cable ties of different specifications for cables according to actual circumstances.
l Do not connect two cable ties in bundling. Otherwise, the binding strength will be
weakened.
l After the bundling, cut the remaining part of the cable tie smoothly, removing all burrs.
l The space between the cable ties is even and is three or four times the size of the bundle
diameter.
l When making turning for the bundled cable, keep the bend radius as big as possible to avoid
breaking the cable cores at the turning.

Figure E-1 shows the specific operation of bundling.

F.1 Overview
Overview of the purpose and procedure of cleaning optical fiber connectors, the items that may
cause pollution to optical connectors are also described here.
Cleaning optical components is to remove dust or other dirt to avoid performance degradation
of optical transmission systems. Here describes how to inspect and clean fiber connectors used
in fiber optic connections.
Figure F-1 shows the optical fiber connector.

Figure F-1 Optical fiber connector

The following items should be removed because they pollute optical connectors that are
extensively adopted in optical transmission systems:
l Dust
l Oils (frequently from human hands)
l Film residues (condensed from vapors in the air)
l Powdery coatings (left after water or other solvents evaporate)
Dust is the most common dirt in optical connectors. Even small dust that can be seen only under
a microscope can affect the quality of optical signals, degrade the system performance and cause
potential instability in network operation.
A one-micrometer dust granule on an optical connector of a single mode fiber can block 1%
light and cause 0.05 dB lost. A nine-micrometer dust granule that cannot be seen by human eyes
can block an entire fiber core. Therefore, small dirt even that cannot be seen by human eyes
should be removed.

NOTE

Before you connect any optical component, make sure that you have inspected and cleaned the component.

General Procedure

Installation Guide F Inspecting and Cleaning the Optical Fiber Connectors

Tools, Equipment, and Materials


The tools, equipment and materials are listed below:

l Optical power meter


l Optical fiberscope with 400x magnification (a video fiberscope is recommended)
l Clean solvent. (Isoamylol is preferred, propyl can be used. Alcohol or formalin is never
used)
l Special compressed gas
l Optical cleaning sticks used for optical connectors or cotton swabs (medical cotton or long
fiber cotton)

Precautions

WARNING
Laser is dangerous. The light is not visible to the eyes with or without laser protective glasses.
Do not look into optical connectors or ports. Failure to follow this warning can cause damage
to the eyes, or even blindness.

CAUTION
ESD is hazardous to the electronic equipment. Use proper handlings to prevent damage to the
electronic equipment. Failure to follow this caution can cause equipment damage and/or loss of
traffic.

Procedure
Step 1 Turn off the lasers before the inspection. Disconnect both ends of the fiber to be inspected.

Step 2 Test the optical power using a power meter. Ensure that the laser is turned off.

Step 3 Select the cleaning stick with a proper diameter for a certain type of the adapter.
NOTE

For the SC and FC optical port, use the cleaning stick with a diameter of 2.5 mm( 0.1 in.); for the LC optical
port, use the cleaning stick with a diameter of 1.25 mm( 0.05 in.). See Figure F-5 and Figure F-6.

Step 4 Place a small amount of cleaning solvent on the optical cleaning stick.

Step 5 Place the optical cleaning stick lightly on the optical adapters so that cleaning solvent is against
the fiber tip. Hold the stick straight out from the adapter and turn the stick clockwise one circuit.
Make sure that there is direct contact between the stick tip and fiber tip.

Step 6 Use the compressed gas to blow off the fiber tip.

NOTE

l When you use the compressed gas, keep the injector nozzle close to the connector surface without
touching it.
l When you use the compressed gas, first spray it into the air as the initial spray of compressed air can
contain some condensation or propellant. Such condensation leaves behind a filmy deposit.

Step 7 Use a fiberscope to inspect the adapter to check if there is any dirt. For details, see the examples
shown in "F.4 Inspecting Optical Connectors". If the optical adapter is still dirty, repeat the
Step 1 to Step 6.
Step 8 Connect the fiber to the board, or put a protective cap on the port.
Step 9 Turn on the lasers after you connect the fiber to the board.
