Nokia Certified Optical Network Design Expert

Develop expert-level knowledge, best practices,
and practical skills to design optimized and resilient
Nokia 1830 PSS based WDM networks.


Become an Optical Network Design Expert

The Nokia Optical Network Design Expert is an intermediate level certification in the ONC program that is focused on network design.

The Nokia Optical Network Design Expert targets intermediate to senior-level professionals who wish to acquire advanced practical knowledge and experience in the design of Wavelength Division Multiplexing WDM networks based on the Nokia 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS), using the 1830 Engineering and Planning Tool (EPT).

In addition, the Nokia Optical Network Design Expert provides a solid background on related topics including optical system engineering, network, and site optimization, node architectures, Optical Transport Network (OTN), Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching (GMPLS), availability and survivability (protection and restoration), as well as advanced requirements such as latency and encryption.
