This course is for technical professionals who are responsible for installation, deployment, and maintenance of the Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP network. Network operations, planners, and designers will also benefit.
The Cisco® ONS 15454 MSTP from Installation to Protection Release 9.6 is a lab-intensive course. You will learn the skills necessary to deploy a Cisco Optical Networking System (ONS) 15454 Multiservice Transport Platform (MSTP) network from installation to protection (FITP). You will also learn fiber-cleaning techniques, fiber test requirements, and how to perform node turnup. The course covers three shelf types: the M12, M6, and M2. You will learn to deploy linear and ring densewavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) topologies. The course covers multiplexer/demultiplexer cards, Erbium doped fiber amplifier cards, Raman amplifiers, transponder cards, and the newest Cisco any rate muxponder and crossponder cards. These cards are used in terminal, amplifier, and reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer (ROADM) node configurations. You will configure wavelength selective switch (WSS) rings and single-module ROADM (SMR) rings. This MSTP-FITP course covers 10-Gigabit unprotected circuits and 10-Gigabit protection using Y-cable, optical channel transport unit-2 (OTU-2), and protection switch module (PSM) cards.
