Cisco ONS 15454 Multiservice Transport Platform (MSTP) Release 8.5 Basic


Description The Cisco Systems ONS 15454 Multiservice Transport Platform (MSTP) takes full advantage of the network intelligence introduced by the ONS 15454 Multiservice Provisioning Platform (MSPP) to deliver intelligent dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) functions for metropolitan and regional networks. The Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP solution provides a comprehensive suite of transparent wavelength service interfaces, including service interfaces. The Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP Test, Turn Up and Operations bootcamp provides the skills to test and turn up the Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP.
