This self-paced On-Demand eLearning course will introduce the CTP Series access products and use cases. The course will describe the different hardware options and interfaces, and explain the steps needed to initially configure the CTP. This course will go into detail on the configuration options for accessing the CTP locally and remotely. Configuration of each interface type will be covered along with the node and circuit timing/sync options available. Jitter buffers and troubleshooting circuits will be covered. The CTPView network management application for configuration, software upgrades, database storage, monitoring, BERTs, loop-backs and graphing of performance information will be covered. Watch a Sneak Peek.
