Prerequisites:

Familiarity with the operation of basic IP networks is assumed, and knowledge of ATM and/or MPLS networks is useful, but not required

Outline and Objectives:

Traffic engineering aims to ensure that individual flows of IP traffic achieve their QoS objectives, and that the utilisation of the network capacity is optimised. It achieves this by a combination of design, capacity planning, and operational traffic management. Once the network is live, operational traffic management ensures that techniques for reactive fault and performance management are available. A combination of IP layer techniques and ATM/MPLS techniques is typically used, together with appropriate physical layer resilience and protection. This course gives a comprehensive treatment of these different approaches to traffic engineering in large IP networks, and illustrates key topics with demonstrations.

Who Should Attend:

This course is aimed at product managers, cross-training engineers, operations staff, and anyone who needs to understand the different components of traffic engineering for IP networks, and how these are typically integrated in real-world networks.

Course Contents:

  • IP Networks and their Forwarding Behaviour
  • The Need for Traffic Management
  • IGP-based Traffic Management
  • Traffic Management using BGP-4
  • Traffic Management across Customer Interfaces
  • ATM-based Traffic Management
  • MPLS-based Traffic Management
  • MPLS-based Protection Switching Using FRR
  • The Role of Physical and Optical Networks
  • An Integrated IP Traffic Engineering Solution
