CCNP Service Provider Operations - MSPVM

Maintaining Cisco Service Provider VPNís and MPLS Networks (MSPVM)

CCNP Service Provider Operations - MSPVM

Course Description

The Maintaining Service Provider VPNs and MPLS Networks (MSPVM) course is a fiveday instructor-led training (ILT) course designed to course provides learners with the knowledge needed to provide support in a service-provider environment using Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS). It provides learners with understanding of MPLS and the associated technologies used in service provider environments, and it provides them with the guidelines on how to monitor and troubleshoot these technologies. The course is also intended to help prepare students for the CCNP SP Operations certification exam.

Course Objectives

Upon completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Identify the typical MPLS requirements in service provider networks; list the MPLS-based solutions; and describe the change, performance, and fault management procedures for these solutions 
  • Perform changes in the configuration, based on designs and implementation templates as well as Information Technology Infrastructure Library® (ITIL)-based change management processes and procedures 
  • Gather and interpret performance statistics for routing protocols using various tools such as show commands and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)-based monitoring tools
  • Perform fault management for MPLS and associated services using various tools such as show commands and monitoring tools
