Course overview

This course provides networking professionals an excellent foundational knowledge on BGP and MPLS technologies, including many hands-on lab activities.The HP Networking BGP and MPLS technology training does not require any knowledge on BGP and MPLS for you to successfully complete the training.

This training starts with a thorough introduction to BGP and moves quickly into more complex features and implementation of this enterprise technology. For example, the labs include building redundant Internet connectivity to several ISPs using BGP and learning the preferred methods of adjusting BGP attributes to achieve outbound and inbound load-balancing, internal stability, and iBGP scalability. Finally, this training introduces the fundamental concepts and technologies of MPLS. The course offers a thorough introduction to the concepts and operation of MPLS labels, Label Distribution Protocol (LDP), Penultimate Hop Popping (PHP), and Forwarding Equivalence Classes (FEC). Students will build a single-label MPLS provider network and learn to understand the output from numerous display commands in a functioning MPLS network. The major focus of this course is the operation and configuration of BGP in an enterprise environment. This class also includes a thorough introduction to the basic operation of MPLS in an MPLS provider environment. The HP Networking BGP and MPLS technology training is not part of a certification track. However you will find this training very useful in preparation for the Master ASE Network Infrastructure certification.


Prerequisites

The HP Networking BGP and MPLS technology course does not require any prerequisites, but we recommend that learners signing up for this course have a strong knowledge of dynamic routing protocols such as RIP and OSPF and at least basic knowledge of the IS-IS routing protocol. Certifications such as HP ASE Network Infrastructure or CCNP are recommended.
