Jan 16, 8am PST Webinar: Enabling nLight Control Plane for Dynamic Next-Gen Optical Networks

Join us for the next Cisco Knowledge Network TechAdvantage Webinar, a 2-hour technical deep-dive on Cisco's nLight Control Plane.

Cisco’s nLight control plane is part of Cisco’s Elastic Core solution that targets Service Provider core networks. This technology is based on Generalized MPLS (GMPLS) that enables a dynamic control plane for optical networks that drives cost effectiveness, increased network utilization and significantly reduced provisioning times.

By attending this configuration centric session, you will learn how to effectively use GMPLS capabilities that are being introduced in Cisco’s IOS XR 4.3.0 on the Cisco CRS and ASR9K platforms.

Who should attend:

  • Service Providers that cater to multiple service networks like Layer 2 & Layer 3 VPNs, Mobile Backhaul and so on, over a converged core
  • Enterprise organizations that have a “pseudo-SP” profile with services to internal business units


  • Cisco’s approach to enabling IPoDWDM networks
  • Understanding nLight Control plane built on GMPLS
  • Key use cases and configuration of GMPLS
  • Summary and Q&A
