MPLS - CCNP SPCORE

MPLS videos for the CCNP SP (SPCORE) 642-887 certification exam (work in progress, more videos coming soon)

  • MPLS - INTRODUCTION (27:25)

    Introduction to MPLS, what are the most common problems solved with this technology and general overview on how MPLS labels are structured and used to switch traffic

  • MPLS - CONVERGENCE (16:37)

    How convergence is achieved in a MPLS network and what are the elements that are involved. We'll describe how the IGP, LDP, different router tables, work together to provide us forwarding, among other topics.

  • MPLS - LABEL FORMAT (22:10)

    In this video we go through the details behind the MPLS labels structure, the functions behind each field on the header, numbering used in the labels and details on the meaning of a few reserved label numbers

  • MPLS - LABEL SPACE AND ALLOCATION (15:23)

    In this video we go through the details behind the label space and label allocation. We'll explore concepts like: per-platform, per-interface, cell mode and frame mode

  • MPLS - LABEL DISTRIBUTION (17:28)

    In this video we detail the MPLS label exchange process for LDP, how labels are communicated and processed for the different destinations in our MPLS network and messages used

  • MPLS - LABEL SWITCHING (31:30)

    In this video we explore how label switching is done in a MPLS network and how packets are handled and processed by each hop. We will also introduce most of the naming conventions used to describe the elements and process involved

  • MPLS - CISCO BASIC CONFIGURATION (30:01)

    In this video, we discuss Cisco’s general philosophy regarding MPLS label generation and assignment, together with Basic MPLS LDP Configuration and verification methods on Cisco IOS devices.

  • MPLS - CISCO IOS XR BASIC CONFIGURATION (26:36)

    General MPLS label generation and assignment on Cisco IOS XR platforms and initial MPLS LDP configuration and verification procedures.

  • MPLS - CISCO FORWARDING AND CONTROL PLANE TABLES (18:01)

    In this video, we describe all the different tables (RIB, FIB, LIB and FIB) that are used in the control and data plane when MPLS is deployed on Cisco IOS devices and how they interact with each other.

  • MPLS - CISCO IOS XR FORWARDING AND CONTROL PLANE TABLES (18:39)

    In this session, we go through all the different tables used when MPLS is implemented on Cisco IOS XR devices and how to check the information on each of them.

  • MPLS - CISCO LDP AUTHENTICATION (10:00)

    LDP Authentication is a critical configuration on environments that require extra levels of security. In this video we show you how to configure and verify LDP MD5 authentication on Cisco IOS devices.

  • MPLS - CISCO IOS XR LDP AUTHENTICATION (10:37)

    In this video, we show you how to configure and verify LDP MD5 authentication on the Cisco IOS XR platform.

  • MPLS - CISCO IOS XR LDP TIMERS (20:49)

    In this video we go through the different timers of LDP on Cisco IOS XR devices, how to configure and troubleshoot them.

  • MPLS - CISCO LDP-IGP SYNCHRONIZATION (06:45)

    LDP - IGP synchronization provides a mechanism to avoid potential blackholing of traffic on our MPLS network under a particular set of circumstances. In this video we describe how to configure and verify this feature on Cisco IOS devices.

  • MPLS - CISCO IOS XR LDP-IGP SYNCHRONIZATION (09:34)

    LDP - IGP synchronization provides a mechanism to avoid potential blackholing of traffic on our MPLS network under a particular set of circumstances, you will see in this video how to configure and verify this feature on Cisco IOS XR devices.

  • MPLS - CISCO LABEL FILTERING (09:10)

    By default, Cisco creates and advertises a MPLS label for every prefix available, this behavior may not be desired on some situations. In this video, we show you how to configure and troubleshoot LDP label filtering on Cisco IOS devices.

  • MPLS - CISCO IOS XR LABEL FILTERING (12:17)

    In some situations, filtering labels in LDP is required, more when you take into account that Cisco IOS XR will create and advertises labels for every prefix in the routing table. In this video we show you how to configure and verify LDP filtering.

  • MPLS - CISCO TTL PROPAGATION (11:42)

    Sometimes there is a need to hide the service provider MPLS infrastructure to the customers, in this video we show you how to modify this default behavior on Cisco IOS devices

  • MPLS - CISCO IOS XR TTL PROPAGATION (14:00)

    By configuring MPLS TTL propagation on Cisco IOS XR devices we can control what hops the customer can see from our MPLS core with common networking tools. In this video we show you how the TTL works in MPLS and how to modify how the routers handle TTL propagation.

MPLS TE - CCNP SPCORE

MPLS TE videos for the CCNP SP (SPCORE) 642-887 certification exam (work in progress, more videos coming soon)

  • MPLS TE - INTRODUCTION TO TRAFFIC ENGINEERING (23:20)

    Introduction to MPLS Traffic Engineering, general objectives, what problems it solves, how does it works and how its implemented (Introduction to TE tunnels)

  • MPLS TE - CBR (22:13)

    How shortest path calculations are performed based on Constraint-Based Routing (CBR) when additional flow requirements needs to be satisfied. How the Constrained Shortest Path First (CSPF) algorithm works and operates.

  • MPLS TE - RSVP (32:39)

    In this video we explore how Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) works and operate, its messages and structure and how it fits inside the MPLS traffic engineering model

  • MPLS - LDP SESSION PROTECTION (11:12)

    In this video we describe how what is LDP session protection, how does it work and why is needed and used in some MPLS network setups

  • MPLS - CISCO SESSION PROTECTION (08:50)

    Session protection adds extra resilience to our MPLS network when specific failures occur and we have redundant paths available. In this video we show you how to configure and verify this feature on Cisco IOS.

  • MPLS - CISCO IOS XR SESSION PROTECTION (09:09)

    When redundant paths exist in our network, session protection can help us to keep our MPLS traffic moving without interruptions in case of failure. In this video we describe how to configure and troubleshoot this feature on Cisco IOS XR.
