Course Code: MPLS400

Brocade MPLS Implementation Training

Overview


This 3-day instructor-led course is an in-depth study of deploying networks using Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS). Course materials focus on features of the Brocade NetIron series of routers including multiple advanced L2 / L3 VPN technologies such as VLL, VPLS, and L3 VPNs. This course covers MPLS concepts, benefits, protocols, designs, configurations, and basic troubleshooting.

MPLS 400 is one of the courses in a curriculum path which leads to the Brocade Certified Service Provider Network Engineer (BCSPNE) certification. It is also is a pre-requisite for Brocade University MPLS Traffic Engineering (MPLS-TE 450).

Pre-Requisites
