About the course

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 in 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.
