Junos MPLS and VPNs

Learn MPLS concepts as well as how to configure and monitor Junos OS while preparing for your JNCIS-SP certification.

Vendor# JMV

GK# 7223

Course Overview

In this course, you will learn about Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) concepts such as control and forwarding plane, RSVP Traffic Engineering, LDP, Layer 3 VPNs, BGP Layer 2 VPNs, LDP Layer 2 Circuits, and virtual private LAN service (VPLS), carrier-of-carrier VPNs. This course also covers Junos operating system-specific implementations of Layer 2 control instances and active interface for VPLS and it is based on the Junos OS Release 12.3R2.5.

Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, you will gain experience in configuring and monitoring the Junos OS and in device operations.
