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.

Multiple members can be added simultaneously for fast resizing. The incoming signal for this member experiences some failure condition, or an adh request for removal of a member has been received and acknowledged.

Indicate that this member is normal part of the group and does not have the highest sequence number. Related Resources Store Articles Blogs. In this example, the deleted member has the highest sequence number.

As long as no return bandwidth is available, the transmitter uses the last received valid status. Each word is associated with a specific member i. This acknowledgment is used to synchronize the lcs and the receiver. The status of all the members lcass returned to the transmitter in the control packets of each member.

Or, the receiver has received and acknowledged a request for addition of this member. The state machine at the transmitter can be in one of the following five states:. In the descriptions below, we use the term member to denote a VC.

This member is not provisioned to participate in the VCG. Virtual concatenation uses 4 of the 16 bytes for its MFI and sequence numbers. This capability is particularly useful in environments where dynamic adjustment of capacity is seh. This member is in the process of being deleted from the VCG. The source sees the R OKassigns the member a sequence number that is one higher than the number currently in use. These messages capture the status of all the VCG members at the receiver.


This member is in the process of being added to the VCG. LCAS is resident in the H4 byte of the path overhead, the same byte as virtual concatenation. This is a bit used to acknowledge the detection of renumbering of the sequence or a change in the number of VCG members. LCAS uses 7 others for its purposes, leaving 5 reserved for future development.

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. Status messages are continuously exchanged and consequent actions taken. The incoming signal for this member experiences no failure condition.

Xdh 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. At a frame boundary, the source includes the VC in the byte interleaving and sets the control command to F EOS sdj, indicating that this Lcsa is in use and it is the last in the sequence. This member is provisioned to participate in the VCG and has a good path to the receiver.


The operation of LCAS is unidirectional. This member is provisioned to participate in the VCG and has a failed path to the receiver.

The transmitter and the receiver communicate using control packets to ensure smooth transition from one state to another. The LCAS mechanism can also automatically decrease the capacity if a member in a VCG experiences a failure in the network, and increase the capacity when the fault is repaired.

The destination notices the F IDLE command and immediately drops the channel from the reassembly process. The protocols behind LCAS are relatively simple. Although SONET 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 lvas.

These actions are independent of each other, and they are not required to be synchronized. The following control words are sdb from the receiver to the transmitter. The transmitter can, for example, read the information from member No. This means that in order to bidirectionally add or remove members to or from a VCGthe LCAS procedure has to be repeated twice, once in each direction.
