MPLS Fundamentals: Cisco CCNP & Real World
This is a complete guide of the MPLS protocol...what it can do for your network and when, how and where to use it.
Updated on Sep, 2023
Language - English
In this course, we will cover all the fundamentals of MPLS. We will be discussing why MPLS was implemented, the terminology used in an MPLS environment, the configurations used in MPLS, concentrating on using Layer 3 VPNs.
We will discuss the LDP protocol, what labels are and how they get forward it to other LDR Routers. Using the hands-on lab we will get to see how these labels get forwarded and we will be configuring multiple IGP routing protocols along with BGP to get information across our network.
We will be creating multiple types of VPNs and through the use for Route Targets and Route Reflectors, we'll demonstrate how packets can be manipulated in a particular direction.
We will definitely be creating Provider Edge routers Customer Edge Routers and have customers within the same company communicate with each other and different companies also be able to communicate with each other through VPN.
We will also learn how to create VRF's in order to make all this possible, as well as understand the CEF, LFIB, LRIB, and much more tables in order to troubleshoot MPLS.
DISCLAIMER: Please note that the simulators/emulators used in this course are not part of the course. It is the student's responsibility to have these to practice with. The Cisco Packet Tracer and/or VIRAL (Virtual Internet Routing Lab) are Cisco proprietary software and can only be obtained through Cisco. It is up to each student to obtain the simulator/emulator of their choice to study along with this course.
What will you learn in this course:

NOW...what you wanted to know about me but were afraid to ask:
If you are tired of the same old methods of learning and want someone that is pretty much unconventional, but at the same time will provide you with an enjoyable learning experience in layman's terms...then please preview my courses and you will discover that I am your guy.
I am a Network Engineer with many years in the field and in the teaching industry.
So, if anyone can get you certified it's me.
My teaching experience stems from teaching at institutions like Palm Beach Community College, New Horizons, Florida Career College (now Anthem College) and The Academy of South Florida not to mention that I also do private consulting.
Here I bring the classroom to you.
I am in several eLearning Platforms worldwide, to include my own...but you can look it up since I'm not allowed to put it here.
Courtesy of the internet, I have been teaching students from all over the world and all walks of life.... thank goodness for technology ;-)
User your certification to make a career change or to advance in your current career. Salaries are among the highest in the world.

Just great ! Thanks a lot.
Course is OK , but there is some confusion in VRF and TE . Could you provide some detailed documentation regarding the full MPLS course.
