Course overview

MPLS Layer 2 VPNs, VPWS, VPMS, and VPLS as PW-based VPNs, and EVPN – Ethernet VPN for Layer 2 and Layer 3 purposes with the detailed Route Type explanation are covered in this course. MPLS Layer 3 VPNs with OSPF, IS-IS, Static Route, EIGRP, and BGP as PE-CE routing protocols are explained and caveats with these protocols in Intra AS deployment are shared.

Inter-AS MPLS VPN Options, A, B, C, and D (Option AB) are covered from design and operation perspectives.

Interconnection between the networks might be done through SFI , IP Transit , Paid Peering and other special arrangements.

These are not thought to you in any other course on the Internet.

If you find it, ask for a refund!

Comparison between IP and MPLS Fast Reroute Mechanisms will be found in the course as well. Segment Routing is covered in this course from many aspects as you will see from the below course.

This is not only a video course but also provides a detailed comparison with other protocols, a detailed comparison of MPLS VPN mechanisms, RSVP vs Segment Routing, and so on.

Also, you will see real-life MPLS network deployment discussions with the other engineers. You will have lifetime access, as soon as I add new topics to the course, you will have access to the new materials.

Course Outline:

Below are some labs which we will be performing in this course:

What is the target audience?

  • Network Engineers, Designers, Solution Architects
  • This workshop will be helpful for many exam certification such as CCNP, CCIE , CCDP and CCDE.

What will i learn?

  • MPLS Use Cases
  • SP, DC and WAN Network MPLS Deployment
  • Designing Networks with MPLS
  • The course contains detailed information about Network Interconnection where a real network creates a neighborship between them.
  • Labeling protocols LDP, RSVP, RFC 3107 – BGP LU and Segment Routing from Control Plane and Data Plane Perspectives

  • Seamless MPLS explained from a design and operation perspective and lab demonstration can be found in this course too
  • outline. Carrier Supporting Carrier is used to connect different parts of the Service Provider Networks over other Provider Networks
  • There are many considerations with CSC, such as running MPLS in VRF and Label stack depth are some of them, it is the topic of this course as well
  • There is much other detailed information that will be found in this course, such as MPLS-BGP, MPLS-IGP interactions, VPN and IP Services Co-existence
  • Blackhole avoidance with IGP-LDP Synch and LDP Session Protection, and many others
