Course Description

The Implementing Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Core Network Services (SPCORE) v1.0 course is designed to help students prepare for Cisco CCNP® Service Provider certification. This course is a component of the CCNP SP curriculum. In this course the student is introduced the concepts of Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) and its implementation. Also, MPLS Traffic Engineering (MPLS TE) services is introduced. Students will use the technology principles of basic quality of service (QoS), and QoS with MPLS, to implement advanced features and functions. The focus of the course is on the technology issues of MPLS and on best practices for implementing QoS from the service provider perspective, as well as how to configure some of those features and functions in an existing routed environment.

Course Outline

Hands-on labs done in class are useful to gain practical skills on deploying Cisco IOS, IOS XE, and IOS XR features to operate and support the service provider network.; Features of MPLS and how MPLS labels are assigned and distributed.; Requirements for traffic engineering in modern networks that must attain optimal resource utilization.; QoS and the need to implement it.; Classify and mark network traffic to implement an administrative policy requiring QoS.; Cisco QoS queuing mechanisms used to manage network congestion.; Traffic policing and shaping, including token bucket, dual token bucket, and dual-rate policing.
