CSI-IL-002 - Mastering AToM - Any Transport over MPLS [VPLS, VPWS, and L2VPNs]
2-Day Instructor Led Class
Using the MPLS core network to provide multiple services has always been an objective of the technology. The emergence of Any Transport over MPLS (AToM) began in 2000 with standards created by service providers like Level3 and Sprint. The notion of using the lower cost, easier to maintain and manage MPLS core to transport layer 2 services such as Frame Relay, ATM, Ethernet, and now Layer 1 services such as T1 have been in development ever since.
This insightful and revealing course has been designed to bring either traditional networking experts from the voice and telephony world or new-to-networking individuals up to speed on the world of ATOM and providing layer 2 services over the MPLS domain. The course lays the technical groundwork for L2 services for delivery mechanisms such as Metro-Ethernet. This course is designed as an instructor led course over the span of two days. The course is delivered in a swift, detailed, and understandable way by knowledgeable and experienced MPLS networking specialists.
The objectives of the course are to:
These objectives are met by covering the necessary technical bases in a straight forward manner, by keep the content in context of the objectives - connecting the dots. Utilizing a short, subject specific architecture with exercises to drive home key points and configuration observations, that reveal these points builds skills and knowledge based on Bloom's Taxonomy. The presentation is always industry current and up-to-date using a technology specialists.
The target audience for this course is anyone in the telecommunications field that requires a solid and complete understanding of the architecture and requirements for AToM, or layer 1/2 services over an MPLS domain and desires configuration and knowledge-based skills that can be applied to their job function. Ideal candidates are:
This is an advanced topic course. CellStream has designed this course to appeal to anyone needing the skills and knowledge of AToM, VPWS and VPLS. The ideal student will have some experience in Basic MPLS operations (for instance having taken the CellStream Hands ON MPLS and L3 VPNs and/or Hands On MPLS Traffic Engineering, one or more of the "MPLS 101", "MPLS 201", or "MPLS 301" courses, or the CellStream Course on Advanced MPLS Functions). The course also demonstrates Command Line Interface examples and an example lab configuration so the student can take away an understanding of implementation. No prior knowledge is necessary.
Students will be provided with a Course Student Guide.
