What Students are Saying about this class:

  • “didactic examples, and answering any questions patiently, and providing additional examples/labs”
  • “Love the format”

Course Description:

A fundamental flaw of Layer 3 networking has been its dependency on Layer 2 to provide resiliency and control of access to bandwidth without any integration of Layer 2 and Layer 3 performance attributes. For instance, Layer 3 QoS cannot be integrated with Layer 2 ATM virtual circuit bandwidth and delay without manual configuration and management.

Before the pressure on network operators to reduce budgets and slash costs, this dependency was mandated by the design of the 7-layer OSI model and associated control planes. Today, networking is very different. MPLS offers a tremendous opportunity to enable cost savings via a common control plane. One of the benefits designed into MPLS has also been the ability to provide integrated constraint-based routing, bandwidth management, and improved network performance for IP networking. This means L2 performance integrated into Layer 3 networking - Traffic Engineering.

Knowing the fundamentals of the MPLS TE (Traffic Engineering) is vital to anyone who is in the networking field today, whether it be Service Provider level or Enterprise level. This insightful and revealing course has been designed to focus on the systems approach, the engineering thinking behind the world of MPLS TE Networking.

The course is a combination of knowledge training, systems analysis, with hands-on exercises using Cisco routers and Cisco IOS, revealing the details of MPLS TE in a swift, comprehensive, and understandable way.

Course Objectives:

To develop a "hands-on" skill set targeted at MPLS Traffic Engineering in the following key areas:

  • Learn the details of how MPLS Traffic Engineering extends traditional internet IGP routing methods
  • Decompose the Resource ReserVations Protocol used for Traffic Engineering tunnel setup
  • Examine how OSPF and IS-IS are modified to support constraint based routing processes
  • Visualize the key benefits of Traffic Engineering Tunnels
  • Develop hands-on experience with example CLI
  • Become informed on developments in the Traffic Engineering technology and how it will be used for L2 and L3VPNs

Audience:

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 TE and desires hands-on skills that can be applied to their job function.

Ideal candidates are:
 

  • Operations individuals that will provide MPLS TE configuration and support services
  • Network Design Engineers that need to understand MPLS TE services and applications
  • Network Management individuals that are providing element and network management tools
  • Technical sales individuals that must be able to correlate features with functionality
  • Technical marketing individuals that want more than just a basic understanding of MPLS TE
  • Certification Track individuals that need to expand their knowledge and studies
  • Network Administrators
 

Course Prerequisites:

This course to appeal to anyone needing the skills and knowledge of MPLS Traffic Engineering. 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.

Course Materials:

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.

Related Content:

This course is part of the CellStream "101 Series" Courses. This course should be taken prior to any 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.
