The Cisco Optical Technology Advanced (OPT300) course is a 5-day course that is designed to teach students how to design DWDM networks using the Cisco Transport Planning (CTP) tool. Students will learn how the 40- and 80-channel mesh networks are designed, and they will set up a six-node WXC-based 40- or 80-channel mesh network. Students will also learn how the 40-channel SMR1 and/or SMR2 network is designed and set up a six-node 40-channel network. In the hands-on labs, students will learn to configure: the Cisco Transport Controller, the 10 Gbps (G) data cards, the 1 gigabit/10 gigabit Ethernet enhanced crossponder, any rate muxponder and crossponder, 100G transponders and muxponders, 10G encryption, and T1 over Ethernet. The course also has a review of G.709 encapsulation, G.7041 Generic Framing Protocol (GFP), forward error correction and coherent transmission. Additionally, students will learn how to add a node to the existing six-node ring and troubleshoot the configuration. The course combines lecture materials and hands-on labs throughout to make sure students are able to successfully deploy a Cisco data over DWDM network.
Topics covered in the course include:
- Running the Cisco CTP tool and design sample DWDM networks
- Principles of a wavelength cross-connect (WXC)-based mesh network
- Configuring a six-node WXC-based mesh network and create DWDM circuits
- Principles of a single-module ROADM (SMR) based mesh network
- Configuring a six-node SMR-based mesh network and create DWDM circuits
- Configuring the 10-GB data cards with appropriate G.709 options and create data circuits
- Installing and configuring the any rate crossponder card for 8 x 20 protected data mode
- Proper configuration of Ethernet options for Layer 1 transport using the Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet crossponder cards
- Installing Ethernet options for Layer 2 protected and unprotected data ring circuits using the Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet crossponder cards
- Provision incoming class of service (CoS) marking by port and by customer VLAN and incoming traffic shaping
- Understand -general queuing theory and set up quality of service (QoS) as implemented in the Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet enhanced crossponder cards
- Installing and connecting circuits to carry T1 over Ethernet
- Installing and configuring 100 Gigabit Ethernet transponder and muxponder cards and circuits
- Installing the 10G Encryption Card and verify error-free operation
- Adding a node to the existing six node 40-channel ring
- Troubleshooting techniques and lab
