Implementing Cisco MPLS (MPLS)

Course Description Schedule

Who should attend

  • Channel Partner/Reseller
  • Customer
  • Employees
  • Individuals that are working toward their CCIP certification.



Course Objectives

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. 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
