SPEDGE – Implementing Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Edge Network Services v1.2

In this course, you will learn how to implement Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) within their networks and how to enable service provider point of presence (POP) to provide Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPNs. Through hands-on labs, you will gain practical skills on deploying Cisco IOS/IOS XE and Cisco IOS XR features to operate and support service provider network.

This course helps you prepare for Exam 642-889 SPEDGE, which is needed for CCNP Service Provider certification.

Overview
