Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a high-performance method for forwarding packets through a network enabling routers at the edge of a network to apply simple labels to packets. This practice allows the edge devices to switch packets according to labels, with minimal lookup overhead. MPLS integrates the performance and traffic-management capabilities of data link Layer 2 with the scalability and flexibility of network Layer 3 routing.
This course covers both introductory and advanced MPLS and MPLS VPNs concepts. Configuration, implementation and troubleshooting skills are all included with a significnat focus on the use of labs to consolidate the learners knowledge. At the end of this course you should be able to design, implement and maintain core IP routing network infrastructures.
Each student will have their own virtual pod of equipment with access to the labs 24x7 for 90 days
Service Provider and Enterprise network engineers that design, deploy and maintain core IP routing network infrastructures.
After you complete this course you will be able to:
Attendees should meet the following prerequisites:
Label Assignment and Distribution
Frame-Mode MPLS Implementation on Cisco IOS Platforms
MPLS VPN Technology
MPLS VPN Implementation
Complex MPLS VPNs
Internet Access and MPLS VPNs
MPLS Traffic Engineering Overview
If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
