Course Overview

The Cisco Optical Technology Advanced (OPT300) v2.0 course gives you the skills you need to deploy advanced features of the Cisco Optical Networking Services (ONS) 15454 Multiservice Transport Platform (MSTP) and Cisco Network Convergence System (Cisco NCS) 2000 Series.

In this course you’ll learn to how to use the Cisco Transport Planner Design Tool to create network topologies and advanced network topologies. You will learn how to use advanced dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) features such as G.709 encapsulation, generic framing protocol G.7041, Layer 1 circuits, quality of service (QoS), crossponder networks using T1 over Ethernet, and encryption.
