coding principles for DWDM, SRM and OTN technologies
This presentation provides the Common Language coding principles and guidelines for dense wave division multiplexing (DWDM), sub-rate multiplexing (SRM) and optical transport network (OTN) technologies by providing use case examples and suggested coding for the various configurations.
coding principles for T1 through OTN and switched ethernet
This training module provides a self-paced guide to ordering and identifying a range of transport technologies used throughout the telecommunication industry including: T1, T3, SONET, DWDM, OTN and switched ethernet. For each technology, the module provides sample ordering codes and identification codes for the various configurations provided.
relation of Common Language coding to ethernet services and MEF terminology
This training module features a Common Language coding application guideline for switched ethernet and its relation to the MEF category of services and terminology for switched ethernet services. It also provides a brief explanation of ethernet private line and its relation to the MEF architecture.
wireless/LTE technology overview
Common Language Information Services takes a look at the evolution of mobile/wireless technology and how coding has been created to support the ever-changing wireless service offerings. This module is beneficial to students with a wireline or wireless telecommunications background. Upon completion of this course, the student will have a better understanding of how Common Language solutions are applied to specific areas of a mobile/wireless network.
metro ethernet solution overview
Common Language Information Services bridge the gap between metro ethernet forum standards, ATIS/OBF interconnection procedures and service provider offerings definitions. This module is most beneficial to parties who have a primary focus on any one of these topics and need to better understand how metro ethernet services are ordered and named within Common Language-licensed service providers.
module for equipment manufacturers and vendors
CLEI Code request process training
This training includes the basics of the CLEI Code and details for a Network Element Provider (NEP) to request a CLEI Code. The course first reviews the CLEI Code format and structure, then explains the documentation available to define the CLEI Code request process. Listed in the training materials are the product attributes the NEP needs to provide so that Common Language can define the CLEI Code for both new item releases and items being changed on a Product Change Notice (PCN). Upon completion of this course, the NEP will have the information needed to request CLEI Codes.
