Optical Networking Systems IP Management Solutions (Digital Short Cut)
Optical Networking Systems (ONS) is a group of optical products from Cisco providing backbone transport, metro access, and wavelength division services. Effective management of these ONS devices requires careful planning and design and clear understanding of the characteristics of the devices and the tools and options that are available.
ONS IP management is a complex subject with little information available beyond the basic configuration. This Short Cut was created based on real customer needs from years of supporting ONS customers and providing expert-level consulting services.
Optical Networking Systems IP Management Solutions goes well beyond the basic documentation and focuses on practical network support needs while also providing guidelines for strategic design and planning requirements. A variety of topics are covered, from the basic configurations to in-depth design solutions. This Short Cut helps you with IP setup and configuration, problem troubleshooting, architectural migration, and planning and design.
