Completion of Cisco Fundamentals of Fiber Optics Technology (FFOT) video training - 10 hours of video content.

Cisco recommends that you have the following prerequisite knowledge and skills:

  • Basic knowledge of optical transport and protocols
  • Basic knowledge of data network principles
Course Objectives

After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Connect to a Cisco NCS 2000 and ONS 15454 MSTP chassis using Cisco Transport Controller
  • Identify node configurations according to card population
  • Provision DWDM circuits using the Cisco Transport Controller
  • Conduct performance monitoring, alarm verification, and fault isolation
  • Provision M12 WSS in linear and M6 as well as NCS 2000 SMR nodes in ring topologies
  • Understand configuration options for the Any Rate muxponder and crossponder
  • Perform Raman amplifier initialization
  • Isolate optical network issues
Course Content

Students will learn how to perform node turn-up. The course covers three shelf types,the Cisco ONS 15454 M12 Multiservice Transport Platform (MSTP), NCS 2006, and NCS 2002.. You learn to deploy linear and ring Dense Wavelength-Division Multiplexing (DWDM) topologies. The course covers multiplexer-demultiplexer cards, Erbium-doped fiber amplifier cards, Raman amplifiers, transponder cards, and the newest Cisco Any Rate muxponder and crossponder cards. These cards are used in terminal, amplifier, and reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer (ROADM) node configurations. You configure wavelength selective switch (WSS) linear and single-module ROADM (SMR) rings. This COTI course covers 10-gigabit unprotected circuits and 10-gigabit protection using Ycable, optical channel transport unit-2 (OTU-2), and protection switch module (PSM) cards
