Brocade MPLS Traffic Engineering (MPLS450)
About this Course
This instructor-led training provides students with the knowledge and skills needed to implement MPLS Traffic Engineering using Brocade switches. This advanced course is the second of two classes, and pertains specifically to the Brocade MPLS Traffic Engineering solution being deployed on Brocade switches.
Who should attend
This course is for switch administrators, system integrators, support personnel, technicians and any user who needs detailed technical information about the deployment of MPLS-TE within a network using Brocade Switches.
CNE 200 or Brocade switch/router equivalence experience CNP 300 or Advanced switch/router equivalence experience MPLS 400 or MPLS label switching and L2/3 VPN equivalence knowledge
Note: This course is designed for students that have already taken MPLS 400 or ETH 650.
