Multiprotocol Label Switching - MPLS
Level: Duration: 40 ore Certification: MPLS Sign Up Back to list of courses Specializations

Course Description

Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a high-performance method for forwarding packets through a network enabling routers at the edge of a network to apply simple labels to packets. This practice allows the edge devices to switch packets according to labels, with minimal lookup overhead. MPLS integrates the performance and traffic-management capabilities of data link Layer 2 with the scalability and flexibility of network Layer 3 routing.
This course covers both introductory and advanced MPLS and MPLS VPNs concepts. Configuration, implementation and troubleshooting skills are all included with a significnat focus on the use of labs to consolidate the learners knowledge. At the end of this course you should be able to design, implement and maintain core IP routing network infrastructures.

 

Course Objectives

After completing this course the student should be able to:

  • Describe the features of MPLS
  • Describe how MPLS labels are assigned and distributed
  • Identify the Cisco IOS tasks and command syntax necessary to implement MPLS on frame-mode Cisco IOS platforms
  • Describe the MPLS peer-to-peer architecture and explain the routing and packet forwarding model in this architecture
  • Identify the Cisco IOS command syntax required to successfully configure, monitor, and troubleshoot VPN operations
  • Identify 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
  • Provide an overview of MPLS Traffic Engineering
