  • The course teaches you how to design Flex Spectrum networks with multi-degree Reconfigurable Optical AddDrop Multiplexer (ROADM) multi-shelf nodes using the Cisco Transport Planner (CTP) software. You’ll learn how to:

    • Install the Cisco NCS 2000 series hardware
    • Configure an optical network and circuits using the Cisco Transport Controller (CTC) software
    • Learn which components and configurations take advantage of and/or are required for the Flex Spectrum 96-channel feature
    • Configure optical networks with multidegree ROADM multishelf nodes
    • Configure optical networks with colorless, contentionless, omnidirectional, and MPO cross-connect advanced features
    • Describe and configure the NCS 2000 400-Gbps Xponder line card

    This course will help you:

    • Gain an in-depth understanding of how to install, deploy, and maintain a Cisco Optical Networking Services (ONS) 15454 Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP) network
    • Practice what you learn through hands-on labs

    After taking this course, you should be able to:

    • Describe the hardware and components required and used with the Flex Spectrum feature
    • Design optical networks in the Cisco Transport Planner software
    • Install the hardware, including multishelf nodes
    • Perform node turn-up and create circuits using the Cisco Transport Controller software
    • Configure optical networks with multidegree ROADM multishelf nodes
    • Configure optical networks with colorless, contentionless, omnidirectional, and MPO cross-connect advanced features
    • Describe and configure the NCS 2000 400-Gbps Xponder line card
    • Add a node to an existing DWDM ring
    • Describe the NCS 2000 Troubleshooting Guide
    • Use the features and documentation with Transport Controller to perform maintenance, testing, and basic troubleshooting
    • DWDM and Flex Spectrum Foundation
    • NCS 2000 Chassis and Cards
    • Design ROADM Networks with CTP
    • Hardware Installation and Multishelf
    • Node Turn-Up and Circuit Creation
    • Advanced Feature Networks and Circuits
    • Testing, Maintenance, and Basic Troubleshooting
    • Spectrum Switched Optical Network
    • Cisco Transport Controller
    • Cisco Transport Planner
    • Adding a Node to Existing DWDM Ring Network
    • Optical Channel Network Connection (OCHNC) Circuits
    • Optical Channel Client Connection (OCHCC) Circuits
    • Colorless Ports and Circuits
    • Contentionless Circuits
    • Connection Verification
    • Performing the Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) Test
    • Maintenance and Performance Monitoring
    • MSTP Troubleshooting
    • Configuring the 400XP card
  • To fully benefit from this course, you should first complete the Cisco Fundamentals of Fiber Optics Technology (FFOT) video training course, or have an equivalent level of knowledge and skills.
