5 Day Course
This extensive Virtual "Live" Instructor-Led course provides extensive information on the design, maintenance, and troubleshooting of the Nortel DMS-10 switching system. Widely recognized as the world’s first all-digital switching system, the Nortel DMS-10 is one of the most popular digital switches ever produced, and still remains in widespread use today. The DMS-10 Switch Maintenance and Troubleshooting course presents a detailed description of the system, and provides the skills necessary to maintain and troubleshoot the switch and its related peripherals. General system architecture is discussed, with diagrams showing functional blocks, card level call processing, and all main modules including the NT3T98 CPU, clock, disk, TTY, and various peripherals connected to the DSDI and I/O bus extender interfaces. The switching Network is also discussed in detail, describing DS-30 “PELP” links, and the various types of line and trunk peripherals they connect. Specific peripherals for a given system can be emphasized as needed, such PE, CE, LCE, DTC, etc. Miscellaneous Equipment is also discussed, including connections to CCS7, announcement systems, etc. The DMS-10‘s command line interface, including System Level commands and menu Overlays are also demonstrated in detail. Many practical examples such a MO system images, line testing, trunk testing, and alarm interrogation are shown. Previous “core” faults are presented as exercises, where the students will determine the needed course of action. Their conclusions are then compared with the answers of what was actually done to correct these previous faults, providing an extremely effective learning method with zero impact to the network. Training may include any topic of particular interest to the student, or to a given region, and may also include optional subjects like translations and external alarming. Finally, the Helmsman documentation viewer and NTPs (Series 602) are covered in detail, with an emphasis on the documents used for maintenance, alarm clearing and card changing.
5 Day Course
This extensive Virtual "Live" Instructor-led course provides the skills required to perform maintenance and a high-degree of troubleshooting, and will walk the student through a practical understanding of the Nortel DMS-100 switching system. It discusses the general system architecture used by all Digital Multiplex System switches, with functional block diagrams of the switch and its main modules, including the SN/XAC front-end, the Network, MS, CCS, IOD, and the various PM and LCM types for Lines and Trunks, plus RCU, RLCM, OPM, and GR-303-compliant remotes. MAP and RTIF terminal use are explained, plus remote access through serial TTY and telnet. MAP alarm & fault interpretation and interrogation are demonstrated, using data from the MAP and from logs, showing the student how to locate suspect cards within the system. The Helmsman documentation viewer and Nortel Technical Publications (NTPs) are also covered in detail, with an emphasis on documents used for maintenance and troubleshooting procedures. Previous troubles are reviewed and used as exercises, including LNS line and TRKS trunk maintenance, but also parts of the SuperNode/XA-Core front-end (SN) including the Computing Module (CM), Network (NET), Message Switch (MS), and CCS (SS7) modules. Peripheral Modules (PM), and modules of particular interest to the students are emphasized. Different network types (ENET, JNET) or different CM types (SN, XAC) are discussed per the needs of a given class. IOD maintenance is also discussed, including procedures to backup Program and Data stores, and a discussion of how hard disks, tape, and billing devices are connected to the system. Special topics like the Star Hub, Remote Concentrating Cluster (RCC), Subscriber Module Access (SMA2), Emergency Stand Alone (ESA), Remote Measurement Module (RMM), etc. can also be discussed per the needs of the class. Our non-intrusive exercises equip the student to conduct day-to-day maintenance activities and show how to perform troubleshooting procedures, including aspects of cabling and the backplane, which helps prepare them for higher-tier support interaction. The course is flexible, allowing the most important content for a particular group of students to be emphasized.
5 Day Course
This extensive Virtual "Live" Instructor-Led course provides an extensive and accelerated maintenance course with updated, full-color block diagrams and frame images. The course was designed to jump-start students with little or no switching knowledge to a competency where they can perform Level-1 card-level repair on virtually any of the main modules in the GTD-5 switching system, including the ACDC, the APC/TPC complexes, the TCU (expanded & non-expanded versions), the MDC, NCU, and SSW, plus all subordinate devices within the BUNW such as the ACU, ALU & BLU lines, plus ATU, DCU and EDCU trunks. Ancillary equipment such as SS7 links, recorder announcers, ringing generators, and gateways such as those used for system remote-access equipment, the CPX, Extension Complex, billing, and remote switch monitoring are also discussed as needed. Troubleshooting techniques are taught pro-actively, including Maintenance-window procedures. Other modules are discussed per the needs of the class, such as the IOM, CMU, and remotes like the RSU, RLU, and MXU, plus the important role of GR-303 compliant RDT remotes in providing voice switching for customers served by optical or digital line networks. The FTU is emphasized, so that students have an appreciation of this critical module, and how line and trunk diagnostics operate. The GTD-5 User’s Guide is used extensively, allowing students to gain confidence in how the guide is presented, and how information can be found quickly. Other key documents are used as needed, like the Product Line Reference Guide (PLRG), Hardware Matrix Report (HDWM), and Cable Running List (CRL), which help show the parts of the system, and how they’re interconnected. Recent-Change can optionally be added to the course, to show the basics on adding lines, trunks, or interrogating switch settings (CONT PARA, EXAM LTT, etc.) plus an overview of FACTS, such as Digit Translation (PRIN DXLN), and call registers (PRIN PROT, PRIN UNPR). Non-intrusive exercises are provided to locate various modules and cards within the switch, with a large number of previous faults & solutions used to gain practical experience. Existing system faults can also be analyzed, with repair action determined by the class, and the analysis provided to the group responsible for repair, where results can later be compared to the recommended action.

5 Day Course
This extensive Virtual "Live" Instructor-Led course was designed for those new to local loop design, planning and engineering - whether in telecommunications, CATV engineers designing fiber or copper, traffic engineering, municipal engineering, public utilities or any other roles that require familiarity with standards and common practices in outside plant design for fiber and copper. This course begins with the basic concepts such as basic electricity, basic telephony, outside plant components and loop transmission. It steadily builds to more advanced concepts and skills, including feeder and distribution designs, digital loop carrier systems and fiber optics. Local loop facilities sometime referred to as "the last mile” are a critical and capital-intensive network component in delivering reliable and adequate telecommunications services to a local carrier's customers. The third day and the final day consist of copper and fiber design exercises that put to work the theories and practical parts of the course. Students will receive 4 fiber design cost models that they can use to examine fiber design alternatives. They will also have a chance to show the area they want to design in class so a design can be started for it. In today's competitive markets, local loop facilities that are cost-effective, reliable and capable of accommodating changing customer needs are key to your organization's success.
