Multiprotocol Label Switching integrates the performance and traffic-management capabilities of data link Layer 2 with the scalability and flexibility of network Layer 3 routing. So, when used in conjunction with other standard technologies, MPLS gives the ability to support value-added features and service offerings.
Implementing Cisco MPLS (MPLS) is a 5-day instructor-led class providing students with in-depth knowledge of MPLS and MPLS VPNs design, implementation and configuration skills for new features and functions in an existing routed environment. This class uses IoS (15.2)
The knowledge and skills that a learner must have before attending this course are as follows: -Intermediate to advanced knowledge of Cisco IOS Software configuration -Configuring and troubleshooting EIGRP, OSPF, IS-IS and BGP Skills and knowledge equivalent to those learned in: -Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices v2.0, Part 1 (ICND1 v2.0) and Part 2 (ICND2 v2.0), or -Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices: Accelerated Version 2.0 (CCNAX v2.0) -Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE v2.0) -Configuring BGP on Cisco Routers (BGP v4.0) -Building Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Networks Part 1 (SPNGN1) v1.2 -Building Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Networks Part 2 (SPNGN2) v1.2 -Deploying Cisco Service Provider Network Routing (SPROUTE) v1.2 -Deploying Cisco Service Provider Advanced Network Routing (SPADVROUTE) v1.2
