Designing and Selling Cisco Network Convergence System (NCS) 2000 and Cisco ONS 15454 Multiservice Transport Platform (MSTP) Solutions (DMSTP) (DMSTP)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline

Course Overview

DMSTP is a 2-day, instructor-led, lecture/lab course that is designed to provide basic skills in selling and designing optical networks with the NCS 2000 Series and ONS 15454 MSTP platform. You will learn how to cost-effectively scale the deployment of fibre networks with the NCS 2000 Series and ONS 15454 MSTP platform, focusing on multi-service aggregation, layered TDM and WDM configurations, and Cisco’s next-generation management tools. In the lab, you will see how Cisco Transport Planner (CTP) is used to simplify and accelerate the design, implementation, and turn-up of NCS and MSTP solutions. The lab for this course is hands-on using Cisco Transport Planner application. The actual optical hardware will not be located onsite but will be logged into during the lab.
