COTI - Cisco Optical Technology Intermediate

COURSE OUTLINE:

Description

In this course, you will learn how to perform node turn-up. The course covers three shelf types-the M12, M6, and M2. You will learn how to deploy linear and ring dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) topologies. Additionally, you will learn about 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 learn how to configure wavelength selective switch (WSS) linear and single-module ROADM (SMR) rings. This course covers 10-GB unprotected circuits and 10-GB protection using Y-cable, optical channel transport unit-2 (OTU-2), and protection switch module (PSM) cards.
