Course Overview

The Cisco Optical Technology Intermediate (OPT200) v3.0 course is designed to teach you the skills necessary to deploy the Cisco® Optical Networking System (ONS), 15454 Multiservice Transport Platform (MSTP), and Cisco Network Convergence System (NCS) 2000 Series Dense Wavelength-Division Multiplexing (DWDM) networks from installation to protection. Through a combination of lecture and hands-on experience, you will learn installation, configuration, circuit protection, maintenance, and basic troubleshooting using the Cisco Transport Controller for the Cisco ONS 15454 M6 and M12 shelves, and for the Cisco NCS 2016 shelf.

Additionally, in this course you will review DWDM terminology and components, explore available chassis and cards, and discuss hardware installation. You will learn to use the Cisco Transport Controller server software to connect to the nodes, perform network turn-up and circuit creation, and deploy linear and single-module ROADM (SMR) DWDM multishelf topologies. Using this software, you will also configure Raman amplifiers and Any Rate cards, and configure protected and unprotected circuits. The course covers a variety of card options: controllers, transponders, multiplexer-demultiplexer, add/drop, Raman amplifiers, and Cisco Any Rate muxponder cards. You will use the various cards to configure terminal, amplifier, mesh, split, Optical Service Channel (OSC) regenerator, and Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexing (ROADM) nodes. Finally, you will learn how to use many of the tools and features available with the Cisco Transport Controller to perform maintenance, testing, and basic troubleshooting of your optical network.
