This course is included in our On-demand training solution.
This course is part of Skillsoft's Instructor Series, technical courses presented in spontaneous lecture-style by subject matter experts. This is 5 of 6 of the Implementing Cisco Multi-Protocol Layer Switching (MPLS) 2.2 series. Multiprotocol Label Switching is a technology capable of dramatically improving the performance of any IP network capable of the technology, and can go beyond and enable service providers a powerful and scalable mechanism of providing customer connectivity. This course covers the practical usage of MPLS technology for todays networks and emparts an awareness of how this complex protocol operates, as well as provides students confidence to use this feature in their own network.
MPLS 2.2 is recommended for any individual responsible for designing, implementing, and/or troubleshooting MPLS networks or solutions based on MPLS technology.
