Improving Your MPLS TE Knowledge and Skills
MPLS TE technology is not covered as extensively as other service provider or enterprise technologies with the standard training offerings from Cisco Systems, Inc. Official courses that discuss MPLS TE include the MPLS Technology Essentials course, which has a single chapter covering this technology, and the Building Core Networks with OSPF, BGP, and MPLS Boot Camp (BMPLS). Fortunately, many excellent additional sources of in-depth information on MPLS TE exist, including the following:
The recently published Traffic Engineering with MPLS from Cisco Press (ISBN: 1-58705-031-5).
Independent courses from Cisco Learning Solution Partners (CLSP) offering Communications and Services training. See www.cisco.com/warp/public/10/wwtraining/learning_part/about_learn_part/sp/index.html for a list of these learning partners and check their course offerings.
Remote lab exercises covering MPLS TE. You can access the exercises through Cisco’s Partner E-Learning Connection (PEC) or directly at www.ccip.com/ls/rlab.
