This 5-day course is designed to provide service provider professionals with information on the use of service provider VPN solutions. The goal is to train professionals to enable service provider point of presence (POP) to provide Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPNs. Hands-on labs are provided to reinforce the students understanding of how to implement VPNs within their network, as well as providing practice on Cisco IOS and IOS XE deployment and the features of Cisco IOS XR required for the operation and support of service provider networks.

This course is intended for network administrators, network engineers, network managers, and systems engineers who would like to implement MPLS VPN service in their networks.

This course is also recommended to all individuals preparing for the Cisco CCNP SP certification.

After you complete this course you will be able to:

  • Introduce the VPN technologies that are used in the service provider environment and the Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) VPN peer-to-peer architecture
  • Describe the implementation steps that are needed to provide MPLS Layer 3 VPN service in service provider networks
  • Describe how the MPLS Layer 3 VPN model can be used to implement managed services and Internet access
  • Describe Layer 2 VPNs and Ethernet services
