MPLS-TP – Service Architecture and Enterprise Network over Service Provider Network

Network engineer configuring network in server room

With the decline in TDM technology, packet switching technologies have gained momentum and MPLS-TP is a favourite technology to replace SDH/SONET Networks. Being based on solid MPLS architecture, it is robust and reliable, while being simpler than MPLS, as “TP” enables it to be an ideal transport technology. This course is ideal for those working in the transport networks, data networks, mobile backhauls, or related technologies.

This course is designed for Network Architects, Service Providers, Engineers and Network Managers who require a good grasp of the technologies involved in modern IP networks and network services.

Instructor-Led Training
[Classroom: 5 days / LIVE Virtual*: 35 hours]
  • A minimum of 5 or more participants are required for a company-based LIVE Virtual course to commence
  • LIVE Virtual courses can be conducted for 5 hours or 7 hours daily. Please note that the number of training days will be extended if you opt for 5 hours daily.

This course provides participants with a strong foundation in MPLS-TP.

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand better the role of MPLS-TP in service providers networks and the benefits associated with MPLS-TP
  • Identify the differences between IP/MPLS and MPLS-TP
  • Explain the control plane enhancements required to enable MPLS for transport applications
  • Explain the various resiliency capabilities and tools of operations, administration, and maintenance
