Cisco® Optical Technology Intermediate (OPT200)

This course covers installation, configuration, circuit protection, maintenance, and basic troubleshooting using the Cisco Transport Controller for the Cisco ONS 15454 M6 and M12 shelves and the Cisco NCS 2015 shelf. You review DWDM terminology and components, explore the available chassis and cards, and discuss hardware installation. You also learn how to use the Cisco Transport Controller server software to connect to the nodes, perform network turn-up and circuit creation, deploy linear and Single-Module ROADM (SMR) DWDM multishelf topologies, configure Raman amplifiers and Any Rate cards, and configure protected and unprotected circuits. The course covers a variety of card options: controllers, transponders, multiplexer-demultiplexer, add/drop, Raman amplifiers, and Cisco Any Rate muxponder cards. In addition, you learn about the various cards to configure terminal, amplifier, mesh, split, Optical Service Channel (OSC) regenerator, and Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) nodes
