Overview

This is a five-day instructor-led course designed to provide learners with the knowledge that is needed to provide support in a service provider environment for services that are based on MPLS. These services include Cisco MPLS Traffic Engineering (Cisco MPLS TE), Layer 3 and Layer 2 MPLS virtual private networks (VPNs).

This course is part of the new SP Ops professional level career certification and will prepare and validate learner proficiency in monitoring and troubleshooting MPLS and associated technologies on the service provider core next generation networking network.

Attendees should meet the following prerequisites:

  • IP networking skills and experience using Cisco IOS Software command line interface (CLI). ICND1 required.
  • Operations process knowledge and ability to use NMS tools to monitor networks and network devices. SSPO required.
  • Ability to implement service provider change management procedures and configuration management procedures. OFCN required.
  • Understanding of and ability to identify the critical factors for availability, scalability and manageability of OSPF, IS-IS, and BGP.Self-study training in these areas may be found on the Cisco Learning Network website at https://learningnetwork.cisco.com/index.jspa?ciscoHome=true or alternatively attend a BCN course. Prior attendance of MSPRP is recommended.
  • Ability to implement Cisco IOS Software and Cisco IOS XR Software configuration and monitoring commands. XRFUND and OFCN recommended.
  • UNIX and/or Linux operating system experience as applied to IP network environments.
