This instructor-led course is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills required to successfully design, configure, and deploy the industry-standard Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) technologies in a Cisco IOS XR Software environment. This course covers over 200 MEF Carrier Ethernet Certification Professional (CECP) knowledge objectives, combined with exclusive access to deploy and implement MEF solutions such as Ethernet-Line (E-Line) and Ethernet-LAN (E-LAN) on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Aggregation Services Routers platform for Cisco IOS XR Software. Through a combination of lecture and hands-on labs, you gain an understanding of all major aspects of the platform; Layer 2 MEF services; Layer 2 MEF operations, administration, and management (OAM); and quality of service (QoS) features.
No other course combines the MEF CECP knowledge with hands-on labs to reinforce your learning.
Attendees should meet the following pre-requisites;
Knowledge of Cisco IOS XR Software operation and configuration: IMTXR Recommended
Basic knowledge of router installation and some experience with installation tools
Knowledge of Layer 2 IEEE switching and related protocols
Knowledge of MPLS configuration. MPLS Recommended
Experience troubleshooting Cisco routers in a large network environment TSHOOT Recommended
This course is designed for technical professionals who need to know how to deploy Metro Ethernet solutions in their network environment and students interested in MEF CECP and desiring a hands-on reinforced learning environment.
Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:
Define the five value propositions of Carrier Ethernet
Outline the standards support for Carrier Ethernet
Configure the Cisco ASR 9000 for various Carrier Ethernet services
Define six Ethernet services (E-Line, E-LAN, Ethernet-Tree (E-Tree) and give usage examples to meet various subscriber needs; explain User Network Interface (UNI) attributes common to all services
Define UNI service attributes (for example, frame format, ingress/egress bandwidth profiles, Carrier Ethernet VLAN ID/EVC (Ethernet Virtual Channel) map); define EVC per UNI service attributes (for example, physical interfaces, frame format, ingress/egress bandwidth profiles)
Define the technologies and standards associated with UNI 1.0 and UNI 2.0
Describe the scalability and limitations of Ethernet over plesiochronous digital hierarchy (PDH), Ethernet over bonded copper, Ethernet over Hybrid Fiber-Coax (HFC), wireless Ethernet, Ethernet over fiber, and Ethernet over Passive Optical Network (PON)
Describe scenarios for common business service applications and the benefits for each, including mobile backhaul (MBH) for cellular services
Describe the MEF partitioning of responsibilities for service operations, administration, and maintenance (SOAM
Discuss the new and enhanced services that Carrier Ethernet 2.0 certification offers; describe the Carrier Ethernet 2.0 service highlights, including multi-class of service (CoS), managed, and interconnected services.
Describe Carrier Ethernet architecture and positioning for backbone and access technologies; describe how Carrier Ethernet services are transported over these technologies; describe the purpose and need and identify the critical components of Circuit Emulation Services over Ethernet (CESoETH) service; describe EVC service attributes required for emulated circuits, including delivering synchronized clocks over emulated circuits (for example, adaptive, 1588v2, synchronous Ethernet, Network Time Protocol (NTP), Precision Time Protocol (PTP)

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.
