CTR 8540 Configuring IP/Layer 3 features

Microwave Routers


The Aviat Networks CONFIGURING CTR8540 IP/LAYER 3 featurescourse is recommended for design, field and operations personnel, who design, deploy, configure and operate IP networking equipment involving advanced routing protocols. This three (2) day instructor-led course is focused on configuration of IP/Layer 3 features on the CTR 8540 platform. Topics include configuration and use of IS-IS, OSPF and BGP.

The course content is enriched with hands-on labs (nearly 50% of the course duration) and case studies that offer students scenarios they will face in real deployments in their networks.

Courses are conducted by AVIAT expert trainersin a mentoring environment backed by their deep technology expertise and experience in implementation of microwave wireless and IP/L3 networks. The course is conducted at Aviat Training locations or can be arranged at customer sites.

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

  • Understand core routing concepts involving advanced protocols such as OSPF, ISIS and BGP Protocol
  • Configure the L3 routing protocol such as OSPF, ISIS and BGP on the CTR 8540
  • Participants must complete Aviat CTR8540 Installation, Operation, and Maintenance course that provides knowledge of the setup, trouble shooting and operation of CTR platforms including configuration of Carrier Ethernet (Layer 2), QoS, and Microwave features.
  • Recommended that participants have taken the Basic IP course or having a good networking IP level (CCNA equivalent).
  • Each student must bring laptop PC and have administrator rights on the PC with the following parameters.
    • Pentium 4 or later w/ 1GB of RAM and 250 Mb of free hard drive space.
    • Microsoft Windows 7, 8, or 10 and Google chrome as web browser.
    • USB Port / LAN Port / and DB9 serial port connexion or adapter
