MPLS Applications Training | Multiprotocol Label Switching Training


MPLS Applications Training | Multiprotocol Label Switching Training Course with labs

In this MPLS Applications Training | Multiprotocol Label Switching Training course, following a high-level review of the basics of MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching), we will undertake an in-depth study of some of the more advanced or emerging functionality including circuit emulation, Multicast applications, scalability enhancements, and OAM features. The topics/features to be covered are updated each time the course is taught to keep up with the technology evolution and to include topics of special interest to a given client.

Customize It:

With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
