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

 

Course Overview

The Cisco NCS2000 Deploying 96-Channel Flex Spectrum (OPT201) v3.0 course shows you how to plan, configure, and control optical networks using the Cisco® Network Convergence System (NCS) 2000 series Flex Spectrum platform.

The course teaches you how to design Flex Spectrum networks with multi-degree Reconfigurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) multi-shelf nodes using the Cisco Transport Planner (CTP) software.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Install the Cisco NCS 2000 series hardware
  • Configure an optical network and circuits using the Cisco Transport Controller (CTC) software
  • Learn which components and configurations take advantage of and/or are required for the Flex Spectrum 96-channel feature
  • Configure optical networks with multidegree ROADM multishelf nodes
  • Configure optical networks with colorless, contentionless, omnidirectional, and MPO cross-connect advanced features
  • Describe and configure the NCS 2000 400-Gbps Xponder line card

How you'll benefit

This class will help you:

  • Gain an in-depth understanding of how to install, deploy, and maintain a Cisco Optical Networking Services (ONS) 15454 Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP) network
  • Practice what you learn through hands-on labs

Who should attend

This course is designed for technical professionals who need to know how to deploy a Cisco NCS 2000 Series Dense Wavelength-Division Multiplexing (DWDM) network with Flex Spectrum.
