Specific objective 3: To form the human capital required to deploy, maintain and operate optical networks, by sharing expertise, training new personnel and strengthening the cooperation networks between the NRENs, which is key to the successful operation and exploitation of the proposed optical network.
Work Package: 3. Capacity-building
Output: A group of technicians well trained in optical technology and security, capable of designing, managing, operating, maintaining and upgrading optical networks
The engineering and operations of the NRENs as well as the new RedCLARA optical backbone will require the development of new capacities among engineers and technicians in all the partner NRENs as well as the RedCLARA engineering team. The training will be made during face to face workshops and the materials and presentations will be recorded and made available on demand from the RedCLARA’s Portal as well as from the Project’s Website.
The training will include the following subjects:
- Optical Network Design
- Optical Network Management
- Layer 2 Networking
- Advanced IP Routing
- Network Security
The attendants will be network engineers from all RedCLARA Partner NRENs as well as interested engineers and technicians attending the TICAL6 Meetings organised yearly by RedCLARA. It is expected that at least 60 technicians and engineers will be trained.
