Prerequisites:

A basic understanding of IP networks, traditional Ethernet, and connection-oriented services such as Frame Relay is useful, but not essential

Outline and Objectives:

The core technology of MPLS has been used to develop and implement three major applications; IP-VPN services, Pseudowire Services (e.g. VPLS), and as a core service provider traffic engineering (MPLS-TE) technique. Meanwhile equipment vendors and service providers continue to seek a simple, cost-effective network technology for access and core network connectivity, and recent extensions to Ethernet standards appear to offer this. This course gives a comprehensive introduction to the base technology of MPLS and its key applications, and to how recent Ethernet standards improve its scalability, management and resilience for service provider use

Who Should Attend:

This course is aimed at product managers, cross-training engineers, operations staff, and anyone who needs to understand quickly and concisely the core technology and applications of MPLS and carrier Ethernet as deployed in public networks

Course Contents:

  • Key innovations in MPLS
  • MPLS Architecture and Operation
