Designing and Selling Cisco ONS 15454 Multiservice Transport Platform (MSTP) Solutions (DMSTP)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline
 

Course Overview

This lab-intensive course introduces you to the Cisco® ONS 15454 Multiservice Transport Platform (MSTP) dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) Release 8.5. You will learn the important theoretical concepts that underlie DWDM and how they are put to use in selling the Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP system. You will gain practical knowledge and skills to successfully run the Cisco TransportPlanner R8.5 software. You will be able to determine the right MSTP cards to use based on customer requirements. In six hands-on labs, you will learn to configure linear networks with OC-48 and Ethernet client circuits, an Optical Service Channel monitor node, a long linear with mixed client demands, rings with protected circuits, Ethernet and time-division multiplexing (TDM) overlay networks, and a mesh network with protected circuits. This course combines lecture materials and hands-on labs throughout to make sure that you are able to successfully design a Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP network.

This is a Cisco Learning Services course and is delivered directly by Cisco.

Who should attend

This course is intended for system engineers, including designers and support staff, who are involved with sales and design of the Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP system.
