Online training module descriptions
Module 1.0 – Getting connected
In this training module DNWP Connection Master packet units are overviewed assessing their factory default settings to provide initial access to the devices. An introduction to the different management interfaces available on Connection Master nodes is given with focus on viewing basic system information. Initial switch configuration is commissioned, and basic switch management and utilities are described.
Module 2.0 – Management communication network
In this training module an OSPF routed management communication network is configured on DNWP Connection Master nodes to provide distributed, in-band management communications for the telecommunications network. The concepts of VLAN trunking, switch virtual interfaces and L3 forwarding are further expanded on. Advanced OSPF configuration parameters are briefly considered and alternative management communication network solutions are discussed.
Module 3.0 – Timing and clock synchronisation
In this training module timing and clock synchronisation solutions in packet switched networks are discussed. Inter-node synchronisation is configured using Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) and Precision Time Protocol (PTP). An overview of different PTP profiles is given.
Module 4.0 – MPLS-TP label switching
In this training module MPLS-TP label switching is overviewed and its central concepts are defined. The hierarchical structure of the technology is elaborated on, and the configuration of MPLS-TP sections, label switched path tunnels and pseudowires on DNWP Connection Master are described. Mapping service frames to pseudowires using Ethernet virtual connections is also covered. More advanced features such as sub-path maintenance entities and pseudowire stitching are briefly touched upon.
Module 5.0 – MPLS-TP provisioning using Traffic Manager
In this training module the provisioning of MPLS-TP services in DNWP Connection Master networks is described. Traffic Manager, a tool in the Telenium NET Hero real-time network management system, is used in the provisioning. Traffic Manager is thoroughly demonstrated and all service types are covered. Virtual private wire services are configured with 1:1 path protection and appropriate quality of service settings.
Module 6.0 – Circuit emulation services – A new module content incl. an intro to DNWP smart SFPs
In this training module Circuit Emulation Services (CESs) are introduced and configured using DNWP smart SFPs. Structure-Agnostic TDM over Packet (SAToP) emulation is overviewed and both encapsulations CESoETH and SAToP over UDP/IP are covered to enable TDM services over packet switched networks.
