Creating and Maintaining Optical Transport Services using the BTI7800 Series

  • Duration: 2 Days
  • Test Level: Intermediate
  • Certifications: No Certification
  • Price: -
  • Exams: No Exam
This two-day BTI Systems Series 7800 operation, administration, provisioning, and maintenance course is designed for customers who are deploying the BTI Systems Series 7800 platform in their networks, and leveraging its 100G transport capabilities. This course introduces the student to the platform and its various hardware components, and leads the students through the commissioning process of the platform—from a brand new, factory-default system to a fully operational network with actual payload. The student will learn how to install, configure, provision, and monitor optical transport services on the platform. Periodic maintenance procedures will be reviewed, and collection of performance measurements will be demonstrated. The student will also perform alarm configuration and alarm condition handling, including troubleshooting procedures. This course is based on software release 1.6.
