This five-day course will enable customers to gather information from the technology basics to some of the more updated features and functions such as Traffic Engineering, Carrier Supporting Carrier and Any Transport over MPLS (AToM). The focus of the course is on technology issues of MPLS from the Service Providers perspective and how to configure some of those features and functions in an existing routed environment.

Customized training is available to emphasize the specific requirements of the customer's network and business demands. The course is delivered in a balance of lectures, hands-on labs, and white board discussions.


  • Identify MPLS's peer-to-peer architecture and explain label allocation, routing update distribution and packet forwarding model in this architecture
  • 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 assigning traffic to traffic trunks
  • Configure, monitor, and troubleshoot MPLS Traffic Engineering.
  • Implement a defined SLA using the MPLS QoS services
  • Configure, monitor, and troubleshoot layer-2 services using the Any Transport over MPLS service.
  • Configure, monitor, and troubleshoot IPv6 support in a MPLS environment.
