To support the massive Internet expansion of recent years, carriers significantly increased the capacity of backbone and core networks. Overview This otherid2ic describes the background and functions of LCAS, and the advantages of LCAS to networks. Basic Concepts Learning the basic . mechanism of LCAS in SDH/SONET network and point out that even though LCAS really brings us much more advantages in SDH transmission network, it also.

If this is not the case, then the other members with sequence numbers between the newly deleted member and the highest sequence number are renumbered. The destination notices the F IDLE command and immediately drops the channel from the reassembly process. This capability is particularly useful lcae environments where dynamic adjustment of capacity is important.

The source node starts sending F ADD control commands in the selected member. The incoming signal for this member experiences some failure condition, or an incoming request for removal of a member has been received and acknowledged. These actions are lcax of each other, and they are not required to be synchronized.

This member is iin to participate in the VCG and has a good path to the receiver. Related Resources Store Articles Blogs. The protocols behind LCAS are relatively simple. The incoming signal for this member experiences no failure condition. LCAS uses 7 others for its purposes, leaving 5 reserved for future development. The state machine at the transmitter can be in one of the following five states:.

Or, the receiver has received and acknowledged a request for addition of this member. The transmitter can, for example, read the information from member No.


The status of all the members is returned to the transmitter in the control packets of each member. The transmitter and the receiver communicate using control packets to ensure smooth transition from one state to another. LCAS is resident in the H4 byte of the path overhead, the same byte as virtual concatenation.

The following control words are sent from source to the receiver in order to carry out dynamic provisioning functions.

The following is a typical sequence for adding a member to the group. In this example, the deleted member has the highest sequence number. Virtual concatenation uses 4 of the 16 bytes for its MFI and sequence numbers.

This acknowledgment is used to synchronize the transmitter and the receiver. Each word is associated with a specific member i. The LCAS mechanism can also automatically decrease the capacity if a member in a VCG experiences ih failure in the network, and increase the capacity when the fault is repaired. The network management system orders the source to add a new member e. Although autonomous addition after a failure is repaired is hitless, removal of a member due to path layer failures is not hitless.

Indicate that this VC is currently not a member of the group. Dsh the descriptions below, we use the term member to denote a VC.

At a frame boundary, the source includes the VC in the byte interleaving and sets the control command to F EOSindicating that this VC is in use and it is the last in the sequence.


Indicate that sddh member is normal part of the group and does not have the highest sequence number. This means that in order to bidirectionally add or remove members to or from a VCGthe LCAS procedure has lca be repeated ssh, once in each direction. This is a bit used to acknowledge the detection of renumbering of the sequence or a change in the number of VCG members.

These messages capture the status of all the VCG members at the receiver. The operation of LCAS is unidirectional. The source sees the R OKassigns the member a sequence number that is one higher than the number currently in use. This member is in the process of being deleted from the VCG. This member is in the process of being added to the VCG. This member is provisioned to participate in the VCG and has a failed path to the receiver. As long as i return bandwidth is available, the transmitter uses the last received valid status.

Although Lcass and SDH were originally designed to transport voice traffic, advent of these new mechanisms has made it perfectly suitable for carrying more dynamic and bursty data traffic. The following control words are sent from the receiver to the transmitter.

This member is not provisioned to participate in the VCG. Multiple members can be added simultaneously for fast resizing.
