Nokia GMPLS-controlled Optical Networks
Course Number: ER00838-V-1803
Course Duration: 4 days
Price: $3,125 US
This course is designed for network engineers, IT personnel, and network planning personnel who need to learn the principles and best practices related to optical network control based on Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS). Participants are introduced to the GMPLS protocol, architecture, and control plane features.
This course introduces the skills and knowledge required to control and manage optical networks using the Nokia GMPLS routing engine implementation (GMRE). The course includes lab exercises and multiple case studies where participants can familiarize themselves with GMRE and Network Functions Manager for Transport (NFM-T) to perform provisioning and restoration in optical networks.
