Deploying MPLS Traffic Engineering
This session covers the deployment of Traffic Engineering in MPLS networks through different use cases. The material presents a brief technology overview and then focuses on three deployment scenarios: bandwidth optimization, traffic protection, and enhanced QoS. In the latter part, the session discusses inter-domain traffic engineering (multiple Interior Gateway Protocol areas and autonomous systems) and general deployment recommendations. The attendee can expect to see numerous sample configurations including IOS, IOS XR and NX-OS. This is an intermediate-level course that requires familiarity with MPLS and link-state routing protocols (OSPF or IS-IS). Previous attendance of session 'Introduction to MPLS' is highly recommended. This session is intended for service providers and enterprise customers deploying their own MPLS traffic engineering network.
