COTA - Cisco Optical Technology Advanced

COURSE OUTLINE:

Description

This course covers topics not covered in the intermediate version. In this course, you will learn how to design DWDM networks using the Cisco Transport Planning (CTP) tool. Additionally, you will learn how the 40- and 80-channel mesh networks are designed. You will demonstrate how to set up a six-node WXC-based 40- or 80-channel mesh network. You also learn how the 40-channel SMR1 and/or SMR2 network is designed and set up a six-node 40-channel network.

The course combines lecture materials and hands-on labs throughout to make sure that you are able to successfully deploy a Cisco data over DWDM network.

Audience

  • Technical professionals who need to know how to deploy data over the DWDM network.
  • Designers
  • System engineers and implementation staff
  • Network operations center personnel
  • Technical support personnel who are involved with the deployment, operations, and maintenance of the Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP system
  • Channel partners and resellers

Prerequisites

  • Completion of Cisco Fundamentals of Fiber Optics Technology (FFOT) video training
