Comments about Implementing Cisco MPLS (MPLS) 2.2 - On Campus - Sydney - New South Wales
This is a 5 day Instructor-led course. This course replaces version 2.1 with the following enhancements: * Improved labs * Clearer explanations * More information on VPNs * An introduction to Traffic Engineering * Correction of errors in previous version * Elimination from course of ATM-related references Before taking this course or attempting the associated exam, students should take BSCI - Building Scalable Cisco Internetworks and BGP - Configuring BGP on Cisco Routers The associated exam remains 642-611 MPLS, a requirement for obtaining the CCIP certification.
Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification or equivalent level of working knowledge and experience, completion of CCNA Basics and ICND courseware is recommended training for CCNA. Equivalent knowledge and skill that can be acquired by attending Cisco's training courses Building Scalable Cisco Internetworks (BSCI) and Configuring BGP on Cisco Routers (BGP). Practical experience with deploying and operating networks based on Cisco network devices and Cisco IOS is strongly recommended. The QoS course is highly recommended because QoS knowledge is assumed in several sections of the course.
