Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP Implementing DWDM from Installation to Protection Release (MSTP FITP)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline

Course Overview

In this lab-intensive course you will learn the skills necessary to deploy a multiservice transport platform (MSTP) network, including fiber-cleaning techniques, fiber test requirements, and node turn-up. The course covers three shelf types, the M12, M6, and M2. You will learn to deploy linear and ring dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) topologies. The course covers multiplexer and demultiplexer cards, Erbium doped fiber amplifier cards, Raman amplifiers and transponder cards and how they are used in terminal, amplifier, and Reconfigurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) node configurations. You will configure wavelength selective switch (WSS) rings and single-module ROADM (SMR) rings. Using Cisco® Transport Planner, you will design a DWDM network and use the output to configure the Cisco ONS MSTP Node. The MSTP Basic course covers 2.5 G and 10G protected and unprotected DWDM circuits.
