Nokia NSP Network Planning

Course Number: OS00111-W-2000
Course Duration: 2 hours (Web-Based Training)
Price: $250 USD

Course Overview

This eLearning explores how to use the NSP for essential network planning functions such as equipment health monitoring, inventory management, capacity planning, forecasting and network simulation.  Discover how to configure, execute and analyze several network planning NSP analytics reports.  Learn the importance of simulation in network planning and how to import your IP network into the IP/MPLS simulation application.  Then see how to perform multiple network planning simulations such as increasing bandwidth demand, what-if failure scenarios, and a worst-case scenario to highlight critical failure areas within the network.
