Description

The Cisco NCS 2000 Deploying 96-Channel Flex Spectrum (OPT201) v3.0 is a 3-day instructor-led or virtual instructor-led course, which shows you how to plan, configure, and control optical networks using the Cisco Network Convergence System (NCS) 2000 series Flex Spectrum platform.

The course teaches you how to design Flex Spectrum networks with multi-degree Reconfigurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) multi-shelf nodes using the Cisco Transport Planner (CTP) software. It will help you gain an in-depth understanding of how to install, deploy, and maintain a Cisco Optical Networking Services (ONS) 15454 Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP) network and practice what you learn through hands-on labs.
