The purpose of this lab is to walk through how to provision several circuit types using various cards and bandwidths via Cisco Transport Controller (CTC). The NCS 2000 can also be provisioned via Evolved Programmable Network Manager (EPN-M) but that is outside the scope of this setup.
The following sections are included in the lab:
- How to login to CTC
- Circuit type overview
- Provisioning circuits
- Classic Method
- Functional View
- Functional View Walkthrough
- Removing circuits
This dynamic environment consists of (3) NCS 2006 nodes that are configured with the Network Converged System WSON software load and equipped with the two-degree version of the Single Module ROADM (SMR1) line card. The site to site connections are via our Calient S320 with two connections using fiber spools as seen in the diagram.
This environment can also be customized and is used for our custom optical trainings.
