Ethernet Applications (UMUX)
The UMUX family, although designed around a TDM core, includes extensive Ethernet capability both for transport (Ethernet over SDH or PDH) and for VLAN based switching.
This course focuses on the Ethernet capability of the UMUX platform. Starting with the theory and principles of Ethernet and Ethernet transport, the course introduces the functionality and capabilities of the Ethernet and Ethernet Transport units.
Specific units covered on this course are the Ethernet over SDH and Ethernet Switching units, NEBRO and NEBRA;the Ethernet Switching unit NEBRE; and the Ethernet over PDH unit, ETER1. It should be noted that ETER1 is now a versatile L2/L3 networking unit supporting Ethernet over PDH, multiple bridge instances, inter-VLAN routing and IP routing.
Students will also look at key Ethernet protocols such as RSTP and VLANs, and how they are practically implemented, together with IP protocols such as OSPF, RIP and VRRP.
