The course will enable learners to gather information from the technology basics to advanced VPN configuration. The focus of the course is on VPN technology issues of MPLS from the Service Providers perspective and how to configure some of those 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 on a concept level only.
