Implementing Cisco MPLS

Duration: 5 Days Course Code: MPLS
This five-day course is designed to provide lectures and comprehensive hands-on labs ranging from technology basics to more updated
features and functions such as complex VPNs. The focus of the course is on MPLS technology issues as they apply to service providers and
on how to configure new features and functions in an existing routed environment. A basic introductory level of some of the more updated
features and functions such as Traffic Engineering, Fast Reroute and Any Transport over MPLS (AToM) are introduced on a concept level only
and the MPLS Traffic Engineering and other Features course should be taken for in depth understanding of those topics.
Target Audience:
This courseis aimed at network administrators and technicians responsible for implementing and troubleshooting basic IP multicast-enabled
networks within a single domain. Cisco CCNP
