The Implementing Cisco MPLS (MPLS) course is designed to provide lectures and comprehensive hands-on labs ranging from technology basics to more updated features and functions such as complex VPNs. The focus of the course is on MPLS technology issues as they apply to service providers and on how to configure new features and functions in an existing routed environment. A basic introductory level of some of the more updated features and functionslike Traffic Engineering is introduced on a concept level only.

Target Audience

This course is designed for:

  • Network administrators and technicians who are responsible for implementing and troubleshooting basic IP multicast-enabled networks within a single domain.
  • Pre-sales and post-sales technical engineers who are responsible for designing, implementing, and troubleshooting MPLS networks or solutions that are based on MPLS technology.

Objectives

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 TE
