Ciena 6500. PACKET-OPTICAL PLATFORM (OTN) OAM&P. OTN. Эксплуатация.

Course Description:

This Blended-Learning Kit (BLK) is designed for personnel responsible for the Operation, Administration, Maintenance, and Provisioning (OAM&P) of a 6500 Optical Transport Network (OTN) nodes and networks. This OAM&P kit is comprised of Instructor-Led Training (ILT) plus prerequisite Web-Based Training (WBT). Students are required to complete the WBTs prior to the ILT portion of the kit. This kit includes:

  • WBT O505 – 6500 Product Overview
  • WBT CN06 – ESD, Laser Safety, and Fiber Cleaning
  • WBT O507 – 6500 Control Plane Overview
  • ILT O-282 – 6500 OTN Operation and Maintenance
  • VILT X282 – 6500 OTN Operation and Maintenance


Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to:

  • Describe the common hardware for the 6500
  • Describe Safety and Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) guidelines that must be applied when working on optical products
  • Identify key features of Ciena documentation
  • Describe the 6500 User Interface and Administration features and perform various activities with Site Manager
  • Describe the key parameters required in the initial nodal System Line-upAnd Testing (SLAT) process, as well as the Data Communication features of the 6500
  • Introduction to OTN Technology
  • Identify the OTN hardware
  • Discuss OTN Facility Terminology
  • Describe signal flow in a 6500 OTN shelf
  • Identify Equipment and Facility Provisioning parameters
  • Explain cross-connect provisioning and perform cross connections
  • Describe the Protection Switching features available on the 6500 and perform various Protection Switching activities
  • Describe the 6500 OTN Performance Monitoring (PM) features
  • Retrieve PM data from a node
  • Clear alarms using Fault Management procedures

Conditions for Instructor-Led Training:

  • The maximum number of students for this course is 10.
  • Lectures take place in a classroom using projector presentations
  • Demonstrations and exercises will be conducted in the classroom and training lab.
  • Students receive course presentation material and product documentation on a USB drive.
  • If the ILT portion of this course is delivered outside a Ciena facility where captive lab equipment is not available, the lab equipment in a Ciena facility can be accessed remotely using a WebEx connection. Remote lab equipment access does have limitations with respect to the amount of tests and procedures that can be performed.


To be successful in this blended-learning kit, students should have a basic
knowledge of:

  • Fiber optics and digital communications technology
  • Telecommunications systems
  • Experience with telecommunications systems
  • Recommended: Ciena's Optical Communications − Associate (OC-A) Certification

Additionally, prior to attending the Instructor-led portion of this kit, students
should have completed:

  • CN06 – ESD, Laser Safety, and Fiber Cleaning [duration: 30 minutes]
  • O505 – 6500 Product Overview [duration: 2 hours 30 minutes]
  • O507 – 6500 Control Plane Overview [duration: 1 hour 30 minutes]

Conditions for Prerequisite Web-based Training:

Interactive Web-based presentations are conducted on:

  • Personal Computer (PC) Windows XP or later
  • MAC OSX 10.6.x or later
  • Sound card with external speakers or headphones
  • Browser support:
    • PC: Microsoft Internal Explorer 8.x or later; Firefox 3.6.x or later; Google Chrome 10.x or later
    • MAC: Apple Safari 4.0.x or later
  • Students need to ensure that any pop-up blocker is disabled.
  • Macromedia Flash Player and/or Windows Media Player web browser plugins are required.
  • Reference documents are available on the Ciena portal.


The average time to complete the training courses in this kit is approximately 4 hours and 30 minutes for the Web-based components and 4 days for the instructor-led course.
