Description

MPLS is one of the topics in the CCNA exam! You need to have a fundamental understanding of MPLS to prepare for your exam. This course explains what MPLS is, how it works and then shows you practically how to configure core MPLS and MPLS L3VPNs.

This course goes deeper to CCNP level to ensure that you are comfortable with both the CCNA exam topics as well as have knowledge for CCNP exams.

This course is practical and shows you how to configure multiple routers (P, PE, CE) using GNS3.

Learn MPLS terms such as C, P, PE, Label, PHP, VRF, MBGP, label pop, label impose, label swap and more

Learn how to configure core MPLS routers (P and PE)

Learn what labels look like with Wireshark

Learn how to redistribute between MBGP and OSPF

Learn how to configure VRFs

Learn how to configure multiple instances of OSPF

Learn about label stacking and how labels are displayed in the CEF table

This course uses GNS3 to demonstrate multiple P routers, multiple PE routers and multiple CE routers. You can now build an entire MPLS network on your laptop using GNS3!
