This course provides you with the skills necessary to deploy Cisco Optical Networking System (ONS) 15454 Multiservice Transport Platform (MSTP) and Cisco Network Convergence System (NCS) 2000 Series Dense Wavelength-Division Multiplexing (DWDM) networks. You learn about installation, configuration, circuit protection, maintenance, and basic troubleshooting using the Cisco Transport Controller for the Cisco ONS 15454 M6 and M12 shelves and the Cisco NCS 2015 shelf.
You also explore DWDM terminology and components, the available chassis and cards, and hardware installation. You learn how to use the Cisco Transport Controller server software to connect to the nodes, External © 2020 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. Revised April 21, 2020 | Page 19 perform network turn-up and circuit creation, deploy linear and Single-Module ROADM (SMR) DWDM multishelf topologies, configure Raman amplifiers and Any Rate cards, and configure protected and unprotected circuits. The course covers a variety of card options: controllers, transponders, multiplexerdemultiplexer, add/drop, Raman amplifiers, and Cisco Any Rate muxponder cards.
In addition, you learn about the various cards to configure terminal, amplifier, mesh, split, Optical Service Channel (OSC) regenerator, and Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) nodes. Lastly, you learn how to use many of the tools and features available with the Cisco Transport Controller to perform maintenance, testing, and basic troubleshooting of an optical network.
