MPLST - MPLS Traffic Engineering and Other Features

Course Description/Agenda

MPLST is recommended training for individuals seeking advanced MPLS-based knowledge and skills. Learn technology basics as well as some of the more updated features and functions such as Traffic Engineering, Carrier Supporting Carrier, and Any Transport over MPLS (AToM). Focus on technology issues of MPLS from the Service Provider's perspective, and learn to configure some of those features and functions in an existing routed environment.

What You'll Learn

  • MPLS peer-to-peer architecture, label allocation, routing update distribution, and packet forwarding model
  • Configure, monitor, and troubleshoot service provider support using the MPLS Carrier supporting Carrier service
  • MPLS Traffic Engineering architecture and how MPLS implements traffic engineering, establishes the constraint-based path, and assigns traffic to traffic trunks
  • Given a working MPLS network and diagram of a network, use the CISCO IOS commands required to successfully configure, monitor, and troubleshoot MPLS Traffic Engineering
  • Implement a defined SLA using the MPLS QoS services
  • Configure, monitor, and troubleshoot Layer 2 services using the Any Transport over MPLS service
  • Configure, monitor, and troubleshoot IPv6 support in an MPLS environment

Who Should Attend

Pre- and post-sales technical support engineers who design and implement MPLS VPN, MPLS TE, and other advanced MPLS services (QoS, transport) in Service Provider backbones.

Designers, engineers, and decision makers interested in the new and advanced features and technologies of MPLS, which facilitate new services and provide for constraint-based traffic engineering and quality of service.

Course Prerequisites

BGP, QOS, MPLS or equivalent knowledge.
