Seamless MPLS Training by TONEX – Learn concepts, planning, architecture and Implementation

Seamless MPLS Training covers all the aspects of Seamless MPLS architecture that can be used to extend MPLS networks. Learn how to integrate access, aggregation, metro and core networks into a single MPLS domain offering a robust framework enabling seamless, scalable and resilient end-to-end MPLS services.

Seamless MPLS is a relatively new concept within the industry and has recently gained traction. Recommendations for Seamless MPLS are still evolving as the industry grapples with this potentially significant architecture transformation. The course starts with a discussion of the motivation behind deploying Seamless MPLS.

This course describes the key concepts upon which Seamless MPLS is founded and provides an overview of the various enablers in the context of the MPLS network functions, IP routing protocols, and other relevant protocols.

Seamless MPLS is an alternative for many mobile backhaul architectures to address converged intra-AS or inter-AS MPLS choices.

Seamless MPLS is a critical component of transforming current networks to meet the increasing demand for M2M, IoT, video, mobile broadband and Cloud services.

Learn about Seamless MPLS architecture and how it can be used to extend MPLS networks to integrate access, aggregation and core networks into a single MPLS domain end-to-end.
