Implementing Cisco MPLS (MPLS)

Seminarinformationen

Seminar - Ziel

Learners will gain design, implementation, and verification skills for a MPLS VPN domain capable of multiple customer sites with managed central services and Internet access.

Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:

  • Describe the features of MPLS
  • Describe how MPLS labels are assigned and distributed
  • Configure and troubleshoot frame-mode MPLS on Cisco IOS platforms
  • Describe the MPLS peer-to-peer architecture and explain the routing and packet-forwarding model in this architecture
  • Configure, monitor, and troubleshoot VPN operations
  • Describe how the MPLS VPN model can be used to implement managed services and Internet access
  • Describe the various Internet access implementations that are available and the benefits and drawbacks of each model
  • Describe the tasks and commands that are necessary to implement MPLS Traffic Engineering

Teilnehmer - Zielgruppe

The target audience is Service Provider and Enterprise network engineers that design, deploy and maintain core IP routing network infrastructures.

Primary target audience:

  • This course is intended primarily for network administrators, network engineers, network managers and systems engineers who would like to implement MPLS and MPLS Traffic Engineering.

Secondary target audience:

  • Network designers and project managers.

Kurs - Voraussetzungen

The knowledge and skills recommended before attending this course are:

  • Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification or equivalent level of working knowledge and experience
  • Configuring Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) on Cisco routers
  • Practical experience with deploying and operating networks based on Cisco network devices and Cisco IOS is strongly recommended
  • The QoS course is highly recommended because QoS knowledge is assumed in several sections of the course Implementing Cisco Quality of Service (QOS)
