The Network Engineer’s Guide to MPLS will be a tour de force into the world of Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) to include coverage of segment routing. This path will provide learners with all the tools to successfully build, maintain, and troubleshoot both simple and complex MPLS VPN networks. This will include in-depth coverage of history and background of MPLS, the definition of MPLS key terms and concepts, MPLS labels and the MPLS label stack, Forwarding Equivalence Classes (FECs), the Label Distribution Protocol (LDP), TTL propagation, LIB/LFIB, CEF, Layer 2 and Layer 3 MPLS VPNs, Any Transport over MPLS (ATOM), MPLS Traffic Engineering (MPLS TE), Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS), MPLS Quality of Service (QoS), MPLS Operations and Maintenance (OAM), 6VPE, 6PE, and segment routing concepts, configuration, and troubleshooting. This path will use a blend of physical Cisco ISRG1/G2 routers running IOS 15.x code and Cisco’s Virtual Internet Routing Lab (VIRL) for all configuration and packet capture activities and configurations for all activities will be provided.
