This extensive Live Instructor-led course available for On-Site or Live Virtual delivery provides the skills required to perform detailed maintenance and troubleshooting on the Calix E7 optical network, including the various OLTs and ONTs within a typical network. It also discusses the theory and general system architecture used by various broadband systems such as AE, GPON, VDSL, and Ethernet-over-Fiber.
The GR-303 TDM Gateway interface for a traditional TDM switch is also explained, where examples can be shown for switches like a DMS-100 or GTD-5. Primary network elements are discussed including the OLT types, ONT types (SFU, SBU, MDU), plus various ONT options found within Calix's P-Series like the GX and GE, along with devices like Erbium-Doped Fiber Amplifiers (EDFA's), filters, splitters, transceivers, and different fiber cable and connector types. Various OLT interface cards are also described (AE GPON, SCP, power fan). Features like Ethernet, POTS, T1, and video, including RF-RTN from the Set-Top Box are explained, along with typical testing and use scenarios.
System management connection interfaces are described, and well as various administrative options, like the Web GUI Interface, Command Line Interface, CMS, etc. ONT activation and status is shown via local-PC connections, RONTA, Web CUI, and CLI, etc. along with discussion on provisioning of profiles, services, and VLANs, with reference to various system documents. System backup and recovery is also described, via external FTPTFTP servers.
Symptom investigation and troubleshooting is demonstrated using previous trouble examples, and through actual troubles which may exist in the network. Common fault types and best practices are also presented, to help prevent troubles from occurring in the first place.
Our non-intrusive exercises equip the student to conduct day-to-day maintenance activities and show how to perform troubleshooting procedures, including aspects of problem isolation, cabling and provisioning, which helps prepare students for higher-tier support interaction. The course is flexible, allowing the most important content for a particular group of students to be emphasized.
