Course details


The Cisco® Deploying and Maintaining Carrier Ethernet Services course gives students the knowledge and skills required to configure, administer, and deploy Layer 2 Ethernet services as defined by the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) on a service provider or large enterprise Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)–enabled network. Students learn how to configure customer premises equipment (CPE) to connect to the MPLS network and configure the access, aggregation, distribution, and core portions of the service provider or large enterprise network to provide the Layer 2 Ethernet services. Students also learn how to secure the network to protect it from attack. Labs are designed to reinforce what is discussed in the lecture.


  • Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:
  • Identify the different Ethernet service type architectures as defined by the MEF
  • Identify the various devices used in a Carrier Ethernet system
  • Describe the functions of each device in a Carrier Ethernet system
  • Configure CPE network functions to connect to a point of presence (POP)
  • Configure access network functions to allow customer data into the network
  • Aggregate customer traffic in a service provider network
  • Configure a core network to transport customer traffic through a service provider network
  • Increase availability of Layer 2 services in a service provider network by configuring pseudowire redundancy
  • Configure Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) and Hierarchical VPLS (H-VPLS) to extend customer networks to multiple sites
  • Scale the deployment of Ethernet multipoint (E-LAN) services by configuring VPLS autodiscovery and pseudowire switching
  • Help ensure integrity and security of customer data and a service provider network
  • Identify the quality of service (QoS) used to meet service-level agreements (SLAs) for different traffic types
  • Monitor and manage end-to-end Layer 2 Ethernet services using Ethernet operations, administration, and management (OAM)
