The WaveReady Communications Module 200 (COM-200) provides monitoring, communication, and management of WaveReady modules when mounted in a WaveReady 3000 series platform.
The COM-200 polls and reports shelf information, slot occupancy, and types and status of modules installed in the shelf. The COM-200 is also used to set parameters of other modules and to upgrade the software version of modules in the shelf.
The COM-200 supports serial and Ethernet connections. The serial interface provides a direct connection for initial configuration of the COM-200 and local management of other modules. The Ethernet interface provides for local or remote management of the COM-200 and other modules in the shelf.
The Ethernet interface also allows COM-200 modules to be linked in series for easy management of modules in multiple shelves. In addition,WaveReady transponders capable of providing a supervisory channel over the optical fiber will allow the COM-200 to manage modules in a remote shelf.
The COM-200 supports two user interfaces: the WaveReady Node Manager, which is a TL1/SNMP Windows-based graphical user interface, and a TL1 command interface.
Five light-emitting diodes (LEDs) on the front panel indicate the status of the COM-200 module and other modules in the same shelf. LEDs associated with the Ethernet ports indicate link activity.
Supports both serial and Ethernet access to the module
Provides craft (DB-9, RS232, or Ethernet/Telnet) access to a TL1 command interface
Provides Ethernet and RS232 access to TL1 and SNMP management through the JDSU Node Manager software
Offers compatibility with third-party SNMP-based management tools such HP OpenView
Enables monitoring and alarm aggregation for all modules in a node
Enables software upgrades for individual modules in a node
Supports administration and management for all modules in three configurations: single shelf, single network element (NE); multiple shelves, single NE; multiple shelves, multiple NEs
