Nokia Fundamentals of Optical Network Design

Course Overview

This course is designed for network engineers, network designers, and network planning personnel who need to learn the fundamental principles and practices for designing a basic optical network. Participants are introduced to industry best practices and Nokia methodology in optical network design, including customer requirements analysis, creation and use of 1830 Engineering and Planning Tool (EPT) design files, traffic matrix analysis, network element requirements and configurations, and resiliency/protection mechanisms. The course includes lab exercises and multiple case studies where participants design simple networks.
