    Course Details


    This lab-intensive course introduces you to the Cisco® Optical Network System (ONS) time-division multiplexing (TDM) family of transport products. The Cisco ONS 15454, ONS 15600, ONS 15310-MA, and ONS 15310-CL are SONET transport system components that can be mixed and matched to create high-speed optical transport networks. You will learn about the SONET optical hierarchy OC-3 (155 Mbps), OC-12 (644 Mbps), OC-48 (2.5 Gbps), and OC-192 (10 Gbps). You will learn how DS-1 (1.5 Mbps) and DS-3 (45 Mbps) electrical signals are carried in the SONET optical links. The course covers Ethernet circuits at Layer 1 and Layer 2 using CE and ML cards. Included in this course is how to configure and build circuits through the ADM10G card, a TDM card in the ONS 15454 DWDM system. The course covers electrical, Ethernet, and optical protection options; linear and ring topologies; circuit building; and troubleshooting. Each student team has an ONS 15454, ONS 15600, ONS 15310-MA, and ONS-15310-CL to work with.


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

    • List and describe the major features and benefits of the Cisco ONS SONET products
    • Set up and use the PC to connect to the ONS SONET network
    • Provision the shelf for 1:1 and 1:N electrical protection
    • Provision the shelf for optical protection 1+1, path ring, and line ring
    • Create circuits at the DS3 and VT1.5 levels
    • Provision Ethernet ports and create circuits between Ethernet components
    • Provision the ADM-10G DWDM card and install circuits
    • Move circuits using the bridge-and-roll capability of Cisco SONET system
