MPLS TE Engineering

MPLS TE training, or MPLS Traffic Engineering Training Course covers all aspects of MPLS traffic engineering.

MPLS TE Training covers all the aspects of the MPLS Traffic Engineering capabilities and principals.

MPLS TE is the process of steering traffic across to the backbone to facilitate efficient use of available bandwidth between a pair of routers. MPLS TE Training also covers deploying MPLS Traffic Engineering designs. It focuses on the features of most of available routers as well as advanced technologies. It also covers network design, system configuration and troubleshooting.

MPLS Te training is an instructor-led training provides attendees with in-depth knowledge and skills needed to implement MPLS Traffic Engineering: topics include introduction to Open Shortest Path First- Traffic Engineering (OSPF-TE), Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) and features such as Fast Re-route. Advanced topics include administrative groups, LSP primary/ Secondary path selection, OSPF and BGP shortcuts and troubleshooting.

MPLS Traffic Engineering Training Course covers many important aspects of MPLS TE including:

  • MPLS Traffic Engineering Principals
  • GMPLS Traffic Engineering
  • Benefits and Restrictions
  • Why Use MPLS Traffic Engineering?
  • How MPLS Traffic Engineering Works
  • Traffic Engineering Techniques in MPLS and GMPLS
