Implementing Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Core Network Services v1.2 - SPCORE (Professional)
The Implementing Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Core Network Services (SPCORE) v1.2 course is designed to help students prepare for Cisco CCNP SP certification. The SPCORE course is a component of the CCNP SP curriculum.
The SPCORE course introduces the concepts of MPLS and describes its implementation as well as exploring the MPLS TE services built on the MPLS technology. MPLS is a high-performance method for forwarding packets through a network and enables routers at the edge of a network to apply simple labels to packets. This practice allows the core devices—typically the routers in the center of the service provider core—to forward packets according to labels, with minimal lookup overhead. The course also enables learners to use the technology principles of basic QoS, and QoS with MPLS to implement advanced features and functions. The focus of the course is on technology issues of MPLS and on best practices for implementing QoS from the service providers perspective and how to configure some of those features and functions in an existing routed environment.
