Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP Implementing DWDM from Installation to Protection Release (MSTP FITP)

Course Description Schedule
This is a Cisco Learning Services course and is delivered directly by Cisco.

Who should attend

This course is for technical professionals who are responsible for installation, deployment, and maintenance of the Cisco 15454 MSTP network. Network operations, planners, and designers will also benefit.


Following are the prerequisites for this course:

  • Familiarity with the Cisco ONS 15454 family
  • Knowledge of SONET or SDH structure and hierarchy
  • Knowledge of DWDM basics

Course Objectives

Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Connect and configure a Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP chassis
  • Identify node configurations according to card population
  • Characterize the role of Cisco Transport Planner in turning up an MSTP network
  • Provision DWDM circuits using Cisco Transport Controller
  • Perform performance monitoring, alarm verification, and fault isolation Provision M12 WSS and M6 SMR nodes in ring topologies
  • Perform Raman amplifier initialization
  • Isolate “optical” network issues

Course Content

In this lab-intensive course you will learn the skills necessary to deploy a multiservice transport platform (MSTP) network, including fiber-cleaning techniques, fiber test requirements, and node turn-up. The course covers three shelf types, the M12, M6, and M2. You will learn to deploy linear and ring dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) topologies. The course covers multiplexer and demultiplexer cards, Erbium doped fiber amplifier cards, Raman amplifiers and transponder cards and how they are used in terminal, amplifier, and Reconfigurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) node configurations. You will configure wavelength selective switch (WSS) rings and single-module ROADM (SMR) rings. Using Cisco® Transport Planner, you will design a DWDM network and use the output to configure the Cisco ONS MSTP Node. The MSTP Basic course covers 2.5 G and 10G protected and unprotected DWDM circuits.
