Implementing Cisco MPLS (MPLS)

Request info

Course duration: 5 Days

Course Outline

The course will enable learners to gather information from the technology basics to a basic introductory level of some of the more updated features and functions such as Traffic Engineering, Fast Reroute and Any Transport over MPLS (AToM). The focus of the course is on VPN technology issues of MPLS from the Service Providers perspective and how to configure some of those features and functions in an existing routed environment.

Associated Certifications:

Cisco Certified Internetwork Professional (CCIP)

Target Audience:

Channel Partner/Reseller
Systems Engineers

Course Prerequisites

Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification or equivalent level of working knowledge and experience, completion of CCNA Basics and ICND courseware is recommended training for CCNA. Equivalent knowledge and skill that can be acquired by attending Cisco’s training courses Building Scalable Cisco Internetworks (BSCI) and Configuring BGP on Cisco Routers (BGP). Practical experience with deploying and operating networks based on Cisco network devices and Cisco IOS is strongly recommended

MPLS Virtual Private Networks Technology
MPLS Virtual Private Networks Implementation
MPLS Virtual Private Networks Advanced Features

Upon completion of the Internetworking with Cisco MPLS (MPLS) course the student will be able to:

• Describe basic MPLS frame-mode and cell-mode architectures and identify how it supports applications that are used to address the drawbacks in traditional IP routing
• Describe the Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) process by explaining label allocation, label distribution, label retention, label convergence and Penultimate Hop Popping (PHP) in both frame and cell modes
• Given a diagram of a typical MPLS network solution, identify the Cisco IOS command syntax required to successfully configure and monitor MPLS operations on frame, switched WAN and LC-ATM interfaces
• Describe MPLS’s peer-to-peer architecture and explain the routing and packet forwarding model in this architecture

• Given a diagram of a typical simple MPLS VPN solution, identify the Cisco IOS command syntax required to successfully configure, monitor, and troubleshoot VPN operations
• Given a diagram of a typical simple, hub-and-spoke, overlapping and central services MPLS VPN solution identify the Cisco IOS command syntax required to successfully configure VPN operations and describe how these model are used to implement managed services and Internet access
