Cisco Career Guide

In this course, you will be introduced to the concepts of Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) and its implementation. You will learn about the MPLS Traffic Engineering (MPLS TE) services built on the MPLS technology, and you'll learn to use the principles of quality of service (QoS) and QoS with MPLS to implement advanced features and functions.

You will focus on the technology issues of MPLS, the best practices for implementing QoS from the service provider perspective, and how to configure those features and functions in an existing routed environment. Through hands-on labs, you will gain practical skills on deploying Cisco IOS/IOS XE and Cisco IOS XR features to operate and support service provider networks.

Exam format
Exam Number: 642-887 SPCORE
Associated Certifications: CCNP Service Provider
Duration: 90 minutes (65-75 questions)
