Course Overview :

Cisco Certified Internetwork Professional (CCIP) 642-611 MPLS

Course Title: Implementing Cisco MPLS

Course Code: MPLS 642-611
Duration: 5 days

Course Overview

The Implementing Cisco MPLS (MPLS) Cisco training course has been designed to provide lectures and extensive labs ranging from technology basics to more updated features and functions such as complex VPNs. The focus of the course is on MPLS technology issues as they apply to service providers and on how to configure new features and functions in an existing routed environment. A basic introductory level of some of the more updated features and functions such as Traffic Engineering, Fast Reroute and Any Transport over MPLS (AToM) are introduced at concept level only, while the `MPLS Traffic Engineering and other Features` course should be taken for further understanding of those topics.

Target Audience

Candidates who should consider attending the MPLS 642-611 Cisco training course are network administrators and technicians who are responsible for implementing and troubleshooting basic IP multicast-enabled networks within a single domain as well as Cisco CCNP, CCDP, CCIE, and CCIP Routing and Switching candidates.

Course Objectives

On successfully completing the MPLS 642-611 course you will be able to:
  • Describe basic MPLS frame-mode and cell-mode architectures and identify how it supports applications that are used to address the drawbacks in traditional IP routing.
  • Describe the Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) process by explaining label allocation, label distribution, label retention, label convergence and Penultimate Hop Popping (PHP) in both frame and cell modes.
  • Identify the Cisco IOS command syntax required to successfully configure, monitor, and troubleshoot MPLS operations on frame, switched WAN, and LC-ATM interfaces, given a diagram of atypical MPLS network solution.
  • Identify the IOS command syntax required to successfully configure, monitor, and troubleshoot VPN operations, given a diagram of a typical simple MPLS VPN solution.
  • Identify the IOS command syntax required to successfully configure VPN operations and describe how these models are used to implement managed services and Internet access, given a diagram of a typical simple, hub-and-spoke, overlapping and central services MPLS VPN solution.
  • Describe the MPLS peer-to-peer architecture and explain the routing and packet forwarding model in this architecture.

Course Prerequisites

Candidates attending the MPLS 642-611 Cisco training course should hold a valid CCNA certification or equivalent knowledge. Prior attendance of the BSCI, BGP and QOS courses or equivalent knowledge is also required.

Testing and Certification

The MPLS Cisco training course is the recommended preparation for the 642-611 MPLS - Implementing Cisco MPLS exam. Please note that this course is only one of four courses required for the CCIP Certification and ROUTE, QOS and BGP are recommended for further study. Implementing Cisco MPLS Traffic Engineering and Other Features (MPLST) is also recommended.
