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 hybrid 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 hybrid DNWP Connection Master nodes to provide distributed, in-band management communications for the telecommunications network. The intra-node connectivity of the hybrid node is described in detail, and 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. The intra-node synchronisation of the hybrid DNWP Connection Master node is described in detail and configured using Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE). Inter-node synchronisation is configured using SyncE and Precision Time Protocol (PTP). An overview of different PTP profiles is given and synchronisation in hybrid PDH/SDH/Ethernet networks is discussed.
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 and circuit emulation services are configured with 1:1 path protection and appropriate quality of service settings. For the latter the cross-connection between the user interface and the emulation inter-working function is further detailed.
Module 6.0 – Operations, administration and maintenance
In this training module different Operations, Administration and Maintenance (OA&M) functions are described and applied to DNWP Connection Master MPLS-TP networks. Introductions to generic associated channel, virtual circuit connectivity verification and maintenance entities are given in view of the continuity check, loopback, linktrace, test generation, loss measurement and delay measurement functions. Point-to-point link level OA&M is included for completeness of OA&M functionality.
