MPLS Fundamentals: Cisco CCNP & Real World
About This Course
In this course we will cover all the fundamentals of MPLS. We will be discussing why MPLS was implemented, the terminology used in an MPLS environment, the configurations used in MPLS, concentrating in using Layer 3 VPNs.
We will discuss the LDP protocol, what labels are and how they get forward it to other LDR Routers. Using the hands on lab we will get to see how these labels get forwarded and we will be configuring multiple IGP routing protocols along with BGP to get information across our network.
We will be creating multiple types of VPNs and through the use for Route Targets and Route Reflectors, we’ll demonstrate how packets can be manipulated in a particular direction.
We will definitely be creating Provider Edge routers Customer Edge Routers and have customers within the same company communicate with each other and different companies also be able to communicate with each other through VPN.
We will also learn how to create VRF’s in order to make all this possible, as well as understand the CEF, LFIB, LRIB and much more tables in order to troubleshoot MPLS.
DISCLAIMER: Please note that the simulators/emulators used in this course are not part of the course. It is the students responsibility to have these to practice with. The Cisco Packet Tracer and/or VIRAL (Virtual Internet Routing Lab) are Cisco proprietary softwares and can only be obtained through Cisco. It is up to each student to obtain the simulator/emulator of their choice to study along with this course.
What are the requirements?
Anyone taking this course should have an understanding of networking specifically in the WAN domain.
What am I going to get from this course?
- The goal of this course is to give to the student an understanding of the real importance of MPLS and its applications. Also this course will help you understand the concepts needed for your CCNP and CCIE certifications purposes.
What is the target audience?
Students preparing for CCNP or CCIE certifications would benefit greatly from taking this course. But also those IT individuals that are working in real world environment would gain some knowledge on MPLS application.
Network Engineer, Cisco & Microsoft Instructor
2016 will be the year to reach your goal!
If you are determined, ambitious and hungry for a new beginning…then 2016 should be your year.
…and how better to start the year than to get your CCNA!
Whether you are interested in the CCNA R/S, the CCNA Wireless or just want to understand the key topics of these certification exams, taking one or all of my courses, will get you a little closer to that goal.
But, don’t take my word for it…please take a look at the FREE previews (they are available in all my courses) and see for yourself.
As for me, 2016 will be the year of putting out new courses for different types of IT certifications among other things
What you wanted to know about me:
If you are tired of the same old methods of learning and want someone that is pretty much unconventional, but at the same time will provide you with an enjoyable learning experience in layman’s terms…then please preview my courses and you will discover that I am your guy.
I am a Network Engineer with over 14+ years in the field and in the teaching industry. I hold the following certifications: CCNA, CCNA Security, CCNA Voice, Security+, Network+, A+, MCP, MCTS & MOS and I just passed the first of two test for the CCIE! My teaching experience stems from teaching at institutions like Palm Beach Community College, New Horizons, Florida Career College (now Anthem College) and The Academy of South Florida, not to mention teaching at my own training facility in Miami, Florida.
Having been in all sides of the spectrum; as a student, a teacher/trainer, and in the field, I believe this uniquely qualifies me to understand the student, and what they have been exposed to as opposed to what they really want to accomplish. These two are sometimes extremely conflicting and frustrating. That is why I teach in the manner I do and can relate to the student’s rejection of the Status Quo.
I have taught corporate employees at MetroPCS (now T-Mobil) and have also taught IT professionals of companies like The Florida Marlins, Hospital personnel & Attorney’s firms amongst others to be able to acquire their CCNA certification and/or their Microsoft certifications; like the MOS (Microsoft Office Specialist). YES!…I am also an applications instructor and also teach Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access.
I teach in an unconventional way that allows for students to understand the subject matter and can therefore, not only prepare them for a Cisco and/or Microsoft certification exam, but apply my methods in the real world. I strive to give the student a greater opportunity to compete in the current job markets. Do I go above and beyond what is needed for a certification?…YES, I do!…because it’s not only about getting a certification, it’s also about making sure the student is prepared for a job interview and/or maintaining their current job by enhancing their skills. This is where I step in and make sure that the student is prepared for whatever they need and make them an asset to their employer. Everyone has different requirements and I make sure, or at least I try, to provide information for most scenarios.
My classes and/or courses are very simple and that’s how I like to teach. If things are kept simple, easy and explained in a way that the student can grasp quickly and retain the information…then I have achieved my goal!
For those that do not know me yet, you may not be used to my style of teaching, but you will soon get accustomed to it :)… I’m very laid back, I try to make learning fun and I teach in layman’s terms…no physics jargon or mumbo jumbo in my teachings. My courses are very interactive and extremely dynamic!…you will not find my lectures monotone or boring, because falling asleep, for lack of excitement, is just NOT an option. Just take a look for yourself at my video previews, which I always provide on ALL my courses, so you can determine if I’m the right guy to help you get your industry specific certifications. 😉
I certainly hope that after a careful review of my credentials & testimonials (you can Google it you know!), I’m the Cisco & Microsoft Instructor you’re looking for!
