Cisco BGP and MPLS
Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is the routing technology that enables the largest and most sophisticated network in the world today – the Internet.BGP is also one of the critical underlying foundations of new-world technologies such as Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS).MPLS VPN is one the most common technology used by service providerThis course covers MPLS concepts with practical scenarios in detail.The course focuses on VPN technology issues of MPLS from the Service Providers perspective and how to configure some of those features and functions in an existing routed environment.
Everyone interested in running BGP and MPLS.Technical engineers and delegates seeking Cisco certifications including CCNP RS or CCNA/CCNP Service provider or Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE Routing & Switching) or CCIE Service ProviderThis course is recommended for any student interested in mastering advanced Internet and related Cisco technologies
Students enrolled in this course should possess a strong knowledge of networking a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and have completed the Network Associate level certification or have the equivalent knowledge and experience.Good Foundation on CCNA RS, CCNP RS Concepts
The Course Goal is to provide learners with in-depth knowledge of BGPConfigure, monitor, and troubleshoot basic BGP to enable inter-domain routing in a network scenario with multiple domainsUse BGP policy controls to influence the route selection processUse BGP attributes to influence the route selection processImplement the correct BGP configuration to successfully connect the customer network to the Internet in a network scenario where you must support multiple connectionsIdentify common BGP scaling issues and enable route reflection and confederations as possible solutions to these issues in a typical service provider network with multiple BGP connections to other autonomous systemsUse available BGP tools and features to optimize the scalability of the BGP routing protocol in a typical BGP networkDesign, Implement & Verify MPLS L3 VPNSupporting multiple Customer sitesMonitor & troubleshoot MPLS L3 VPNFeatures and functions such as Traffic Engineering, Layer 2VPN.
