OMSTP1 - Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP from Installation to Protection Release 9.2 DWDM - Optical

Course Description/Agenda

In this intense and hands-on course, you'll gain the skills necessary to deploy a Multiservice Transport Platform (MSTP) network, including fiber-cleaning techniques, fiber test requirements, and node turn-up. You will learn to deploy linear and ring dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) topologies. Using Cisco TransportPlanner (CTP), you will design a DWDM network and use the output to configure the Cisco ONS MSTP Node. You will also cover:

  • Multiplexer and demultiplexer cards
  • Amplifier and transponder cards
  • M12, M6, and M2 shelf types
  • Terminal, amplifier, and Reconfigurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) node configurations
  • Linear, wavelength selective switch (WSS)-based ring and single-module ROADM (SMR)-based topologies
  • Three types of DWDM circuits
  • 2.5G and 10G transponders, both protected and unprotected

What You'll Learn

  • Connect and configure a Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP chassis
  • Identify node configurations according to card population
  • Characterize the role of CTP in turning up an MSTP network
  • Provision 2.5G and 10G protected and unprotected DWDM circuits using Cisco Transport Controller
  • Perform performance monitoring, alarm verification, and fault isolation
  • Provision DWDM circuits using Cisco Transport Controller
  • Provision M12 WSS and M6 SMR nodes in ring topologies
  • Perform Raman amplifier initialization
  • Isolate optical network issues

Who Should Attend

  • Network professionals responsible for installation, deployment, and maintenance of the Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP
  • Network operators, planners, and designers

Course Prerequisites

  • Basic knowledge of SONET, DWDM, and DATA is helpful but not required
