Implementing Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Core Network Services  

Course SPCORE Five days Instructor-led

Introduction:

This course is designed to help students prepare for Cisco CCNP SP certification. It introduces the 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.

The 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.

Intended Audience:

  • Channel Partners / Resellers
  • Customers
  • Employees

Prerequisites:

Examination:

The 642-887 SPCORE Implementing Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Core Network Services exam. This exam tests a candidate's knowledge of the concepts and implementation of MPLS technology and MPLS-TE services. It also validates the understanding of technology principles of basic Quality of Service, and Quality of Service with Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) to implement advanced features and functions. Candidates can prepare for this exam by taking the Implementing Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Core Network Services (SPCORE) course.
