Description

Multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) is a flexible, lightweight network protocol, commonly used by network engineers to robustly control traffic flows through large carrier-grade networks. This subject introduces multiprotocol label switching concepts, terminology, signalling protocols, design considerations such as path constraints and resiliency, and the implementation, monitoring and basic troubleshooting of an MPLS network. On successful completion, students are able to design MPLS-based networks and construct label switched paths (LSPs) through a network using either label distribution protocol (LDP) or resource reservation protocol with traffic engineering (RSVP-TE).

This subject is based on the Nokia (formerly Alcatel-Lucent) course 3FL30635AAAAZZZZA which forms part of the Nokia Network Routing Specialist II (NRS-II) certification program. Additional material has been added by UTS for further clarification and deepening of understanding.
