Multi Protocol Label Switching
1 Days / 2 Live Online Sessions (0900-1230) / Technical Level: Level 3
Course Code: IP1307
An introduction to the topic of Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) looking first at plain vanilla MPLS Label Switched Paths (LSPs) and then progressing through the concepts of MPLS Virtual Private Network (VPN) connections.
Who would benefit
Engineers are finding MPLS is a variety of different applications from IP VPNs, through to GMPLS in transmission networks. As so this 1-day course will provide an excellent introduction to the topic.
A good understanding of IP networking is essential as well as an understanding of OSPF and BGP which can be obtained from attending our ‘Routing Protocol Principles – IP1306’ course.
