MPLS is one of the most important topics of JNCIP and JNCIE SP exams, in addition to that MPLS VPNs are being widely used in the Service Provider Networks.
Understanding the different MPLS VPN technologies, as well as implementing and troubleshooting them, is inevitable, especially in a Service Provider environment.
In this course, we will start with the basics of MPLS, with configuring the SP Core using OSPF, ISIS, and LDP to provide the transport which is required for MPLS VPN Services as the Overlays.
We could use SR-MPLS or RSVP to provide the transport but it is not our main focus in this course.
The main focus is to go through the details of L3VPNs, talk about the MP-BGP and Service Labels, different PE-CE Routing protocols such as OSPF, IS-IS, and BGP, and Overlay Control Plane Loop Prevention with each of them.
After we made sure that you are confident enough with L3VPNs, the instructor starts talking about the L2VPNs, the P2P, and MP2MP services, such as L2Circuit (xConnect) which is also called VPWS in detail such as how Pseudowires being created and signaled using LDP.
We will extend the VPWS to EVPN and take advantage of EVPN BGP Signaling. VPLS is another important topic, you will become familiar with Martini and Kompella VC signaling, and also learn about Limitations as well as challenges.
Another major topic is EVPN when it comes to MP2MP L2 Services, support for Multi-Homing in an Active-Active and Active-Standby way with the Idea of IRB to have L3 Routing in addition to L2 Bridging.
You will learn different Route-Types of EVPN in detail when it comes to the EVPN with MPLS Encapsulation, Route-Types Such as 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.
There are two well-designed Labs covering both Intra-AS and Inter-AS MPLS VPNs.
Those labs are EVE-NG based and you will receive the lab files to import them to your EVE-NG Community as well as EVE-NG Professional.
