ONS-TDM-SONET - Optical Network Systems Time Division Multiplexing SONET v9.2 - Optical

Course Description/Agenda

In this lab-intensive course, you will get an introduction to the Cisco Optical Network System (ONS) Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) family of transport products, including hands-on work with an ONS 15454, ONS 15600, ONS 15310-MA, and ONS-15310-CL. The ONS 15454, ONS 15310-MA, and ONS 15310-CL are SONET transport system components that can be mixed and matched to create high-speed optical transport networks.

You will learn about the SONET optical hierarchy OC-3 (155 Mbps) OC-12 (644 Mbps) OC-48 (2.5 Gbps) and OC-192 (10 Gbps). You will learn how DS-1 (1.5 Mbps) and DS-3 (45 Mbps) electrical signals are carried in the SONET optical links, and you'll learn to configure and build circuits through the ADM10G card, a TDM card in the ONS 15454 DWDM system. In the course, you will cover electrical, Ethernet, and optical protection options, linear and ring topologies, circuit building, and troubleshooting, including investigating Ethernet circuits at Layer 1 and Layer 2 using the CE and ML cards. Each student team will work with an ONS 15454, ONS 15310-MA, and ONS-15310-CL.

What You'll Learn

  • Major features and benefits of the Cisco ONS SONET products
  • Set up and use the PC to connect to the ONS SONET network
  • Provision the shelf for 1:1 and 1:N electrical protection
  • Provision the shelf for optical protection 1+1, path ring and line ring
  • Create circuits at the DS3 and VT1.5 level
  • Provision Ethernet ports and create circuits between Ethernet components
  • Provision the ADM-10G DWDM card and install circuits
  • Move circuits using the bridge-and-roll capability

Who Should Attend

  • Maintenance personnel, transport engineers, and managers
  • Anyone who requires a detailed understanding of SONET transport network components, interconnection, circuit building, and maintenance

Course Prerequisites

Knowledge of DS1, DS3, and SONET is very useful
