The MPLS Traffic Engineering Training course covers all the aspects of the MPLS Traffic Engineering capabilities and principals. MPLS TE is the process of steering traffic across to the backbone to facilitate efficient use of available bandwidth between a pair of routers. MPLS Traffic Engineering Training also covers deploying MPLS Traffic Engineering designs. It focuses on the features of most of the available routers as well as advanced technologies. It also covers network design, system configuration, and troubleshooting.

  • We can adapt this MPLS Traffic Engineering course to your group’s background and work requirements at little to no added cost.
  • If you are familiar with some aspects of this training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
  • We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the MPLS Traffic Engineering course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
  • If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the MPLS Traffic Engineering Training course in a manner understandable to lay audiences.


The target audience for this MPLS Traffic Engineering Training course:

  • MPLS VPN and MPLS TE designers and architects, Pre- and post-sales technical support engineers, testers, and anyone else involved in validating and verifying advanced MPLS services (QoS, transport, security) in the Service Provider backbones.
