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-IL-001 - Mastering Generalized MPLS (GMPLS)
2-Day Instructor Led Class
The common control plane architecture implementation at the optical layer of networks is traceable to two companies: Lighterra (now Ciena's Core Director) and Monterey Network's Wavelength Router (acquired by Cisco Systems). These early implementations followed a similar track: utilize IP control protocols such as OSPF to select and manage wavelength availability and paths on the optical network.
These early implementations have now morphed into the open standards of Generalized MPLS or GMPLS. This course opens the architecture and requirements design of using common control protocols to control layer 1 network capacity, and links these optical and photonic devices to their layer 2 and layer 3 counterparts all under the MPLS umbrella of operation and management.
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 MPLS and GMPLS Networking. This course is designed as an instructor led knowledge-based course over the span of two days delivered in a swift, detailed, and understandable way by knowledgeable and experienced optical networking specialists.
Course Objectives:The objectives of the course are:
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 Generalized MPLS (GMPLS) in networking and desires 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 Course on MPLS, one or more of the "MPLS 101", "201", or "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.
The course outline is as follows:
