Telecom Italia reported at the November 2011 IPv6 conference that one of their biggest challenges was to get their staff trained on IPv6. Make sure your organization has a plan to train their staff, not just their network engineers on IPv6. You can find IPv6 training classes here.
CSI-HO-011 - MPLS 201
1-Day Instructor Led Hands On Lab Class
Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a high-performance method for forwarding packets through a network. It enables routers at the edge of a network to apply simple labels to packets. This technique also allows labels to be assigned specifically for private customer networks, insuring separation of customer IP addresses from service provider IP addresses.
To develop a "hands-on" skill set targeted at MPLS Layer 3 VPN peering and networking in the following key areas:
The target audience for this course is anyone in Engineering, Test, Customer Support, Technical Marketing, or even Sales and Marketing that requires a solid and complete understanding of the fundamental operations of MPLS Layer 3 VPN and desires hands-on skills that can be applied to their job function.
Ideal candidates are:
This course to appeal to anyone needing the skills and knowledge of MPLS L3VPNs. The ideal student will have some experience in networking and operations, with knowledge of basic MPLS such as the MPLS 101 course, IP addressing and routing. All students must attend with a lap-top computer in order to interface to the Router Lab. If the course is held at a classroom where computers are available, the Lap-top computer will not be required.
Students will be provided with a Course Student Guide and a Lab Guide. Also, a lab system for configuration and labs will be provided.
If this is a Web Delivery:
Students will be provided with access to the CellStream Online School. From there students will take a pre-course knowledge assessment and then invest 3-4 hours in completing the pre-class reading assignment. During this time (approximately 1 week), they have access to the instructor via an online Q&A forum. Then students will download a Course Student Guide and a Lab Guide and attend the 4 hour Web Session synchronously with the instructor. A lab system for configuration and labs will be provided. Students must have a PC with a telnet program of their choosing.
This course is part of the CellStream "101 Series" Courses. This course should be taken prior to any 201, or 401 classes. Related to this course and a great next step is the IPv4 Routing 101 class. After this class, if interested in the next generation IP, you should consider the Hands On IPv6 class.
