Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a mechanism in high-performance telecommunications networks that directs data from one network node to the next based on short path labels rather than long network addresses, avoiding complex lookups in a routing table. The labels identify virtual links (paths) between distant nodes rather than endpoints. MPLS can encapsulate packets of various network protocols. MPLS supports a range of access technologies, including T1/E1, ATM, Frame Relay, and DSL.


This session provides an overview of the applications and benefits that Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) can offer to service providers and enterprises. The basic MPLS technology components will be discussed, as well as the various market segments where MPLS is being positioned. This course is a prerequisite to any of the other MPLS courses.


This session covers the deployment of Traffic Engineering in MPLS networks through different use cases. This session is divided over two parts.


This breakout session covers the fundamental and advanced topics associated with the deployment of Layer 2 VPNs over an MPLS network. This session is intended for service providers and enterprise customers deploying L2VPNs over their MPLS network.


This session describes the implementation of IP Virtual Private Networks (IP VPNs) using MPLS. It is the most common Layer 3 VPN technology, as standardized by IETF RFC2547/4364, realizing IP connectivity between VPN site and MPLS network.


This session presents the most recent extensions to the MPLS architecture. The material has a special focus on standardization and forward-looking directions for the evolution of the technology.


This session presents a technical deep dive of Ethernet VPN (E-VPN) and Provider Backbone Bridging E-VPN (PBB-EVPN). This session will cover the detailed operation of E-VPN / PBB-EVPN including forwarding, multi-homing, aliasing, multicast and fast convergence. The session is intended for service providers or enterprises looking to deploy next generation L2VPN solutions for Carrier Ethernet or Data Center Interconnect services. This is a session that assumes familiarity with MPLS-based L2VPNs and BGP.
