CMDBID: 57314 | Course Code: JUN-JMF,MPLS | Duration: 2 Days
JMF is an intermediate-level course.
After successfully completing this course, you should be able to:
Describe the history and rationale for MPLS, as well as its basic terminology.
Explain the MPLS label operations (push, pop, swap) and the concept of label-switched path (LSP).
Describe the configuration and verification of MPLS forwarding.
Describe the functionalities and operation of RSVP and LDP.
Configure and verify RSVP-signaled and LDP-signaled LSPs.
Select and configure the appropriate label distribution protocol for a given set of requirements.
Explain the Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP) extensions used to build the Traffic Engineering Database (TED).
Describe the Constrained Shortest Path First (CSPF) algorithm, its uses, and its path selection process.
Describe administrative groups and how they can be used to influence path selection.
Describe the default traffic protection behavior of RSVP-signaled LSPs.
Explain the use of primary and secondary LSPs.
Describe the operation and configuration of fast reroute.
Describe the operation and configuration of link and node protection.
Describe the operation and configuration of LDP loop-free alternate.
Describe the LSP optimization options.
Explain LSP priority and preemption.
Describe the behavior of fate sharing.
Describe how SRLG changes the CSPF algorithm when computing the path of a secondary LSP.
Explain how extended admin groups can be used to influence path selection.
