Cisco Optical Technology Advanced (OPT300) v2.0

Cisco Optical Technology Advanced (OPT300) v2.0 Certification Training Course Overview

Enrol for the 4-day Cisco Optical Technology Advanced (OPT300) v2.0 course from Koenig Solutions accredited by Cisco. This course gives you the skills you need to deploy advanced features of the Cisco® Optical Networking Services (ONS) 15454 Multiservice Transport Platform (MSTP) and Cisco Network Convergence System (NCS) 2000 Series.

Through a blend of hands-on labs and interactive lectures, you’ll learn to how to use the Cisco Transport Planner Design Tool to create network topologies and advanced network topologies. You will learn how to use advanced Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) features such as G.709 encapsulation, generic framing protocol G.7041, Layer 1 circuits, Quality of Service (QoS), crossponder networks using T1 over Ethernet, and encryption.

The course also covers the following cards: Cisco ONS 15454 80-Channel Wavelength Cross-Connect (WXC), 100-Gbps transponder, 10-Gbps muxponder and transponder, 10-Gbps enhanced data multiplexer, any-rate muxponder and crossponder, 10-Gigabit Ethernet Xponders 10GE-XP and enhanced GEXP, 100-Gbps and 200-Gbps transponder and muxponder, 10-Gbps network encryption cards, and the Cisco NCS 2000 400 Gbps Xponder Card.

Target Audience:

  • System installers
  • System integrators
  • System administrators
  • Network administrators
  • Solutions designers
