Implementing Cisco MPLS Traffic Engineering & Other Features v2.0 (MPLST)

Implementing Cisco MPLS Traffic Engineering & Other Features v2.0 (MPLST)

Overview

Duration: 5 days

Implementing Cisco MPLS Traffic Engineering and Other Features (MPLST) v2.0 is an instructor-led training (ILT) course that extends the knowledge and skills that the learner has obtained from the MPLS Cisco CCIP™ certification track. The course duration is 5 days in length, using a standard ILT format. The course reflects the latest developments in network design and technologies, and uses real-world scenarios to help reinforce key objectives.  The MPLST course is recommended training for individuals who are seeking advanced MPLS-based knowledge and skills. The course will enable learners to gather information ranging from the technology basics to more updated features and functions such as MPLS Traffic Engineering (MPLS-TE), Fast Reroute (FRR), and Any Transport over MPLS (AToM). The focus of the course is on the technology issues of MPLS from a service provider perspective and how to configure some of the MPLS features and functions in an existing routed environment.

Objectives

Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:

  • Identify the MPLS peer-to-peer architecture and explain label allocation, routing update distribution, and packet forwarding as they relate to this architecture
  • Use the Cisco IOS commands that are required to successfully configure, monitor, and troubleshoot service provider support using the MPLS Carrier Supporting Carrier service
  • Identify the MPLS Traffic Engineering architecture and explain how MPLS implements traffic engineering, establishes the constraint-based path, and assigns traffic to traffic trunks
  • Use the Cisco IOS commands that are required to successfully configure, monitor, and troubleshoot MPLS Traffic Engineering
  • Use the Cisco IOS commands that are required to successfully implement a defined SLA using MPLS QoS services
  • Use the Cisco IOS commands that are required to successfully configure, monitor, and troubleshoot Layer 2 services using the Any Transport over MPLS service
  • Use the Cisco IOS commands that are required to successfully configure, monitor, and troubleshoot IPv6 support in an MPLS environment
