Lab exam registration

Lab exam registration, management, and cancellation

Half-day labs exams are now available

Virtual half-day lab exams are now available for registration.  Currently, the full-day Optical Network Architect lab exam is on hold due to COVID-19 restrictions with the exception of the Shanghai, China location.  

In support of the certification requirements for Optical Network Architect, Optical Network Design Expert, and Optical Network Services Expert, Nokia offers practical lab exams that ensure a candidate’s ability to design, configure, manage and troubleshoot optical networks based on the 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) portfolio.

Lab exams are offered virtually (except the Optica Network Architect) or from select Nokia locations identified below. In order to register for a lab exam, candidates must have completed the necessary pre-requisites. Once exam prerequisites are completed, candidates need to purchase a lab exam, and once payment is secured, the candidate will be able to select an available exam date from the website.

Consider using My Nokia Optical Lab to help you prepare for the exam. My Nokia Optical Lab provides remote, dedicated access to a Nokia optical lab environment, including lab types focused on 1830 PSS, 1830 EPT, and NFM-T. Features include:
