The Cisco® Optical Technology Advanced Release 10.1 is an instructor-led, hands-on course offered by Cisco Learning Services. The course introduces you to the Cisco ONS 15454 Multiservice Transport Platform (MSTP) and Network Convergence System (NCS) 2000 Series dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) advanced features and data.
This course covers topics not covered in the intermediate version. You learn how to design DWDM networks using the Cisco Transport Planning (CTP) tool. You learn how the 40- and 80-channel mesh networks are designed, and you set up a six-node WXC-based 40- or 80-channel mesh network. You also learn how the 40-channel SMR1 and/or SMR2 network is designed and set up a six-node 40-channel network. In the hands-on labs, you learn to configure: the Cisco Transport Controller, the 10 Gbps (G) data cards, the 1 Gigabit/10 Gigabit Ethernet Enhanced Crossponder, Any Rate Muxponder and Crossponder, 100G transponders and muxponders, 10G encryption, and T1 over Ethernet. There is also a review of G.709 encapsulation, G.7041 Generic Framing Protocol (GFP), forward error correction and coherent transmission. Additionally, you add a node to the existing six-node ring and troubleshoot the configuration. The course combines lecture materials and hands-on labs throughout to make sure that you are able to successfully deploy a Cisco data over DWDM network.
