After completing the course the participant will be familiar with the functionality of MPLS and MPLS VPN applications. Will be able to configure and manage the MPLS network and the most used applications - MPLS VPN in simple and complex usage scenarios. Participants will be familiar with IPv6 transport over MPLS and IPv6 usage in the MPLS L3 VPNs.


3 days (8h/day)

Training format

As a standard, we implement a full-time course (onsite or ILT *) in the ALEF Training Center. Upon agreement, it is possible to implement the course at the client's premises. The course can also be implemented online (vILT **) via a video conferencing platform - Cisco Webex meetings. Instructor- led virtual training is a combination of the best of a traditional classroom course and interactive training without having to leave your own office or the comfort of your home. Convince yourself of top quality transmission, video calls and effective team collaboration.


  • ILT - Instructor Led-Training * - instructor-led training in the classroom. ** vILT (Virtual Instructor-Led Training) - this is a form of distance learning, where the instructor conducts training from the classroom through an online platform to which students connect from their offices or the comfort of their home.
