In this highly intense course, students will be given the skills necessary to install, configure and maintain a Multiservice Transport Platform (MSTP) network, including techniques on how to properly clean optical fiber, the requirements for fiber testing, and how to turn up a MSTP node. Students will also be taught how to properly install and configure linear and ring dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) topologies. The course will cover the various system cards including, amplifier cards, multiplexer and demultiplexer cards, and transponder cards. An overview of the system shelves including the M12, M6, and M2 shelves will be covered and students will learn how each shelf is used in amplifier, terminal, and ROADM node configurations. The course will cover the use of the Cisco TransportPlanner, showing students how they will design a DWDM network and use the associated output to configure the Cisco ONS MSTP Node. In this MSTP basic training course, students will also cover linear, protected and unprotected DWDM circuits, WSS-based ring and SMR-based network topologies.

The instructor was the best teacher I have ever had at any level. I learned more in the last 7 days than I did studying on my own for the past 6 months. The material was presented in a way that was easy for everyone to understand. He by far had the most knowledge of anyone I have ever met in the subject and I hope to learn more from him in the future.

The course material is excellent. This bootcamp was the best bootcamp I ever attended. I improved my skills tenfold.
- Cesar Culot
The instructors real world experience lent insight towards the material and helped us to apply or study beyond the textbooks. The prestudy material will help guide me as a reference resource in the future. The lab books provided endless excersises to master the skills being taught in the classroom.
- James Tillman
The course materials gave insight to ccna, but more importantly the real world situations.
- Justin Hopper
Cisco Press and Cisco Networking Academy books were excellent. The instructor was very knowledgable, fun, helpful, covered all of the material, clearly presented information and shared great ideas on calculating network size, masks, and hosts.

The instructor for this course was very knowledgeable of the material and real world experiences to draw from. Couldn't have asked for any more material. The lab simulator (Cisco's packet tracer) was quick and easy to obtain.
- Jeffrey Mattson
The instructors lectures were in-depth and his presentation skills outstanding. The labs went smoothly and were very informative. I left knowing I could actually log-on and accomplish CCNA level configurations.
- James Barbee
I have really enjoyed this boot camp...I am leaving here with a much greater knowledge of Cisco than I had previously. The course materials were spot on!
- Kelly Burnette
NEVER have I seen an Instructor with the amount of knowledge and passion for a subject. Thank you Infosec for providing me this oppurtunity to learn.
- Dave Malseed
The Cisco and InfoSec books covered the material well. The instructor was extremely approachable and really did an outstanding job of covering the massive amount of material in such a short amount of time.

One of the most intelligent and well-spoken instructors I have ever had the privilege to work with. His in depth knowledge of the 10 domains in CISSP surpassed my expectations as well as the expectations of my classmates. His teaching style kept the otherwise dry information very memorable and exciting. I would HIGHLY recommend this course to my peers.

Instructor was to the point, and stayed on topic. Appreciated that he doesn't get led off tangents by students questions.
- Mark Yu
A great instructor, very intelligent and well spoken and excellent course materials.
- Jeff Clemmons
My instructor is a freaking genius, however he really enjoys bringing the info and material to life so in a way you do catch a bit of genius by the end of the course.
- Samuel Angura
Fantastic instructor! Really knew the material, and was adept at communicating in an understandable manner to those without an IT background. I couldn't ask for a more genuine, concerned instructor who had her students successful learning as the main motivator for everything she did. Simply superb!
- Timothy Dalhouse
Incredible instructor. The coursework covered 300 topics in 10 domains, and he was able to speak intelligently on all of them. Better, his teaching style was relaxed and informal, which lessened the feelings of impending doom about the exam we were about to undertake. He knew exactly which sections of the material to emphasize, when we needed a break, and in many cases was speaking ahead of the slides (he knew exactly what was coming up before turning the slides). Rare gem.
- Thomas Dunn
Georgia Tech Research Institute
Instructor did a fantastic job of delivering a large set of very dense course material cogently to the class. She obviously had the material down cold and could easily break down elements of the different knowledge domains in clear explanations.
- Byron Caswell
Instructor demonstrated advanced knowledge of the subject matter as well as INFOSEC in general. He provided us with all of the tools and reference materials we needed to perform the DIACAP process. The course materials are great!
- TR Piller
Excellent instructor. One of the best I have had in over 27 years in the IT business. Genuinely cared about the students understanding the subject material and their success in passing the exam. She taught how to think and reason to pass the test. That is something not found in any text book.
- Craig Calder
The instructor was very knowledgeable about the pen testing and ethical hacking. He was great in delivering the lectures, lab and was very helpful in having us complete the capture the flag exercises. In addition, he provided valuable insight about security in general and pen testing in particular.
