MPLS Applications Training Course Description

In this MPLS Applications Training course, following a high-level review of the basics of MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching), we will undertake an in-depth study of some of the more advanced or emerging functionality including circuit emulation, Multicast applications, scalability enhancements, and OAM features.

The topics/features to be covered are updated each time the MPLS Applications Training course is taught to keep up with the technology evolution and to include topics of special interest to a given client.

Duration: 2-3 days

Customize It:

• If you are familiar with some aspects of this MPLS Applications Training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
• We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the MPLS Applications Training course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
• If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the MPLS Applications Training course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
