Technology Training: Optical Network Systems

Raising the Bar

Cover all aspects of Cisco ONS 15454 transmission products with optical training.

Raising the Bar

Cisco Optical Network Systems 15454 transmission products are the industry benchmark for dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM), Synchronous Optical Networking (SONET), and packet transmission by Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) Transport Protocol. Cisco Learning Services' optical training offers industry-leading courses that highlight applications and implementations supported by the Cisco ONS 15454 systems.

Trainings are designed for individuals who install, deploy, and maintain these systems. The DWDM courses include Cisco Transport Planner software that facilitates the design of the DWDM optical network. SONET covers fiber-based time-division multiplexing. The Carrier Packet Transport course teaches Ethernet connectivity using MPLS.
