Nokia Optical Network Management with WaveSuite NOC (NFM-T)

Course number: ER00836
Course duration: 5 days
Price: $3,425 US

Course overview

This course is designed for network engineers, IT personnel, and network planning personnel who need to learn principles, provisioning methods, and best practices related to WaveSuite NOC. Participants are introduced to the management system architecture and main related features.  

It focuses on network management processes and tasks, specifically for 1830 PSS-based WDM networks, by using the WaveSuite NOC management system. After an initial overview of the OTN 2.0 hierarchy which foresees the OTSiG tunnel, the OTSi infrastructure, and the OTUCn framing, the most common network element architectures are depicted. Then, the student will learn how to perform the initial network construction steps, which include node creation and commissioning. Before discussing the service provisioning, there will be a comprehensive discussion of network protection mechanisms, and the differences between restoration techniques will be illustrated. Plenty of labs are foreseen for this topic so that the student can learn protections such as OCHP, OPSB, Y-cable, OMSP, OLP, and E-SNCP. Then, the student will learn about GMPLS and ASON networks are explained so that students can learn how to set up both GMPLS L0 and L1 networks. The course ends with a module dedicated to Network Analysis where the student will learn how to browse physical connections and trails, check fiber characteristics, and locate network faults. The student will also learn how to perform basic tasks related to network administration processes such as stop/start, task scheduling, and backup & restore application tasks.

Course objectives

After completing the course, students should be able to:

  • Work with the network commissioning tool
  • Construct basic networks using SWDM nodes 
  • Provision uplinks, infrastructures, and services in basic network scenarios 
  • Collect and analyze alarms, PMs, routing views, and Wavelength Tracker diagrams
