DWDM and Routing Today
This extensive course delivers an in-dept overview of DWDM and how it can be used in small carrier networks.
How and why DWDM might be used, compare its operation with single wavelength and Course Wavelength systems and identify the advantages and challenges.
The course will then examine how SONET systems function so that attendees can appreciate the different levels in the hierarchy and how different OC levels perform. Many modern optical systems now carry IP, so the course will then go on to examine routing and switching technologies used by Cisco.
The course will also compare different classes of Cisco routers and identify the advantages and applications for each of the different types.
This course will then bring together the concepts learned to identify how modern carrier networks can take advantage of these technologies today and how the technology is likely to evolve over the next few years.
- Appreciate the Function of Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing
- Identify How SONET Works using OC-12, OC-48 and OC-192
- Compare Different Classes of Cisco Routers
- Describe Operational Hand-off of Fiber Services in Data Centers
- And Much More...
