Cisco NCS 2000 Deploying 96-Channel Flex Spectrum (OPT201)


Course Description

Cisco® NCS 2000 Deploying 96-Channel Flex Spectrum (OPT201)

The Cisco® NCS 2000 Deploying 96-Channel Flex Spectrum (OPT201) course is an instructor-led, lab-based, hands-on course offered by Cisco Learning Services. It covers how to plan, configure, and control optical networks using the Cisco Network Convergence System (NCS) 2000 Series Flex Spectrum platform. In this course, you will design Flex Spectrum networks with multidegree reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer (ROADM) multishelf nodes using the Cisco Transport Planner software, learn how to install and turn up the hardware, and use the Transport Planner output to configure an optical network and circuits using the Cisco Transport Controller software.

In Cisco® NCS 2000 Deploying 96-Channel Flex Spectrum (OPT201), you will learn which components and configurations take advantage of and/or are required for the Flex Spectrum 96-channel feature. Then you will learn how to configure more advanced networks with the colorless, contentionless, and omni-directional features, and to configure mesh nodes with multifiber pushon (MPO) crossconnects. Finally, you will learn how to use the many tools and features available with Transport Controller to perform maintenance, testing, and basic troubleshooting of your optical network.
