5 days  (Instructor Led Online)  |  Service Provider

Course Details

The SPCORE – Implementing Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Core Network Services v1.2 course helps students prepare for Cisco CCNP Service Provider certification. It introduces concepts of Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) and describes its implementation as well as exploring the MPLS Traffic Engineering (MPLS-TE) services built on the MPLS technology.

This course enables learners to use the technology principles of basic Quality of Service, and Quality of Service with MPLS to implement advanced features and functions. The focus of the course is on technology issues of MPLS and on best practices for implementing QoS from the Service Providers perspective and how to configure some of those features and functions in an existing routed environment.
