Nokia Advanced Optical Network Management with NFM-T

Course Overview

This course is designed for mid to senior-level network operations and management personnel. Participants will learn how to use the Nokia Network Functions Manager Transport (NFM-T) to efficiently and effectively manage a Nokia 1830 PSS-based optical network.

The course focuses on advanced optical network construction, configuration, and management. Topics include: Network Services Platform (NSP) overview; advanced node architectures (such as FlexGrid, C+L band, WDM/OTN convergence); advanced network configurations (such as MRN, overlay, mixed plane, cascading); advanced service creation (on top of the previous scenarios, including ODUflex and alien services); network maintenance and transformation (with and without L0 and L1 GMPLS); and NFM-T agents and processes overview/troubleshooting. The course provides extensive hands-on lab exercises to ensure students gain practical skills on the topics presented.
