It will be upgrades, maintenance, card adds, programming, troubleshooting of Ciena equipment. Mainly 6500 and running fiber jumps from Ciena equipment to panel
INFO ON TOOLS:
CANDIDATE MUST HAVE BASIC HAND TOOLS
Just the 10 G test sets. Ciena/Ledcor will provide the 100G tests sets ADHOC. Coserve would be responsible for all hand and power tools along with cleaning kits and power meter etc. Our test sets have a scope and OTDR with them.
COSERVE PROVIDING: Laptop, Cleaning Kit, and Power Meter
Technician should confirm site access before dispatching to the site by calling 866-750-2500 opt 2-2 during business hours
Job start times will be at 5:00 PM local time as required be Verizon for install and BER testing. Some sites will allow earlier start times. If the site does allow earlier start time, please advise. Migration start times will be 8:00 PM or Midnight depending on the circuit.
Migrations will consist of four parts; Site survey, Install, BER Test, and Migration.
1. Site survey: Locate equipment noted in the ECD and complete the FRL (Fiber Run List) provided. Determine fibers needed. Notify Ciena so they can have the fibers shipped out. New fibers are shown in blue line. See example ECD below.
When on site, locate equipment noted in the ECD and FRL
Verify that all info on the ECD is correct. i.e. NE, TID, RR, SH, SL numbers.
Determine new fiber needed, length and connector type. It is extremely important to visually verify the entire path of each fiber run to get a correct measurement and to identify any patch panels that may have been overlooked. And, extremely important to get the correct connector type, see examples below. A narrative of the path would be helpful as well.
Document fiber requirements on the FRL verbiage tab. See example below
Complete a markup for each circuit on its individual circuit tab on the FRL. See example below
Identify all fibers, connections, and cut points on the markup
Take pictures of all equipment, connector types, fiber path etc. Please re-size pictures before sending
Send an email to LTS PMO & Ciena PMO with the required information, fiber length, connector type, etc. so fiber jumpers can be ordered.
1. Site surveys as part of any site visit
o Key NOTE: Fiber list will be provided by remote networking engineering team
o Trace existing fibers to validate/document To/From details
o Assess new fiber path To/From details
Fiber connector type
Assess any infrastructure aspects (between cages, rooms, etc.)
o Standard site survey deliverables such as: Completed and validated form that is provided by the Ledcor team/documentation on fiber route
Using spreadsheet template provided by Ciena engineering
Pictures of relevant to/from equipment
Results of fiber tracing and any issues or discrepancies
Any fiber path/route directions or concerns
o Managed Jointly between Ledcor and Ciena
2. Pre-wire and pre-test (per site/recommended number of sites based on spreadsheet data)
o Run, label, clean, scope and test fibers for the new path
o Perform continuity test with remote tester
o It is expected that this scope will be performed in the same deployment time period of execution for migration scope; i.e. run the fibers one day and migrate the next.
o Updated fiber run list if there are any changes
o Fiber scope results for each fiber (should be done using FAST)
o Cleaned, scoped, tested and labeled fibers in place ready for migration
o Summary report of daily activities completed using FAST
o Labor/mobilization for kit not included, assume it will be on site for the tech at time of work scheduled.
o 14 to 30-day notification of scheduled activities
o The Pre-wire and pre-test will likely take place in the days leading up to the migration
o Use excel to determine the number of fibers at each site
3. Migration Scope:
o During a 2 to 6-hour MW, disconnect existing fiber and connect new fiber at the direction of remote engineer
o Assume 2 techs per team per MW
o Assume 2 to 3 teams per MW in parallel and in different regions
o Completion of fiber rolls
o Redlines and issues list
o Summary report of daily (MW) activities completed using FAST/or other provided documentation status reports
