The Eclipse™ product family is a highly modular and scalable platform that delivers a unique combination of high capacity hybrid or all-packet transport, Carrier Ethernet/IP networking, and comprehensive mission critical microwave features, enabling operators to prepare for the all-IP future.

The Eclipse Installation, Operation and Maintenance course teaches students key functions of the Eclipse platform. The course includes an overview of all available equipment, basic configuration with the Portal craft tool, system commissioning, maintenance, diagnostics and troubleshooting. Extensive hands-on labs (nearly 50% of the course duration) offer students with scenarios they will face in real deployments in their networks.


Upon successfully completing this course, participants will be able to perform:

  • Basic installation and configuration for Eclipse equipment
  • Preventative maintenance on the relevant Eclipse equipment
  • Basic diagnostics and troubleshooting of the relevant Eclipse equipment


  1. Participants must complete the Eclipse System Overview e-learning course.
  2. Participants should have a basic understanding of Electronics, Telecommunications and IP Fundamentals and have basic computer skills.
  3. Each student must bring an IBM compatible laptop PC and have administrator rights on the PC (to allow installation of the Portal craft tool).

The PC must have minimum parameters of:

  • Pentium 4 or later w/ 1GB of RAM and 250 Mb of free hard drive space
  • Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, or Windows
  • USB Port Network card (LAN Port)
  • DB9 serial port connection or adapter (optional)
