MPLS, VPLS, VPWS Technology Training

MPLS, VPLS, VPWS Technology Training covers the key aspects of the topics Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), Virtual private wire service (VPWS), and Virtual private wire service (VPWS).

Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) enables Enterprises and Service Providers to build next-generation intelligent networks. Enterprises and Service Providers can integrate MPLS application components, including Layer 3 VPNs, Layer 2 VPNs, Traffic Engineering, QoS, GMPLS, and IPV6 to develop highly efficient, scalable, and secure networks that guarantee Service Level Agreements (SLAs).

Learn about Virtual private wire service (VPWS): a characteristic of a fixed relationship between an attachment-virtual circuit and an emulated virtual circuit. VPWS-based services are point-to-point (for example, Frame-Relay/ATM/Ethernet services over IP/MPLS).

Learn about Virtual private LAN switching service (VPLS): end-to-end service with multiple instances of this service share the same physical infrastructure and each instance of the service is independent and isolated from the others.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this training, the attendees will be able to:

  • Describe basic concepts behind Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) and Virtual Private Wire Service (VPWS)
  • Describe architecture, protocols and building blocks behind MPLS, VPLS and VPWS
  • Compare the MPLS, VPLS and VPWS to traditional IP routing and L2 switching
  • Describe Layer 1 and Layer 2 transport services using MPLS core networking
  • Describe IP/MPLS Control Plane modification to support of L1, L2 and L2 VPN services
  • Illustrate configurations of various MPLS, VPWS and VPLS products
  • Describe the detail operation of ethernet-based services using the MPLS core network
  • Describe the MPLS/VPLS/VPWS routing and packet forwarding procedures and protocols
