Implementing Cisco Service Provider VPN Services (SPVI)

Duration : 5 Days (40 Hours)

Implementing Cisco Service Provider VPN Services (SPVI) Course Overview:

The Implementing Cisco Service Provider VPN Services (SPVI) v1.0 course is designed to equip individuals with the necessary skills and knowledge to manage end-customer Virtual Private Network (VPN) environments built over a service provider Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) backbone. The course focuses on various aspects of MPLS VPNs and provides hands-on labs to reinforce the concepts covered.

During the course, you will learn about MPLS VPN fundamental concepts, including their benefits and classification. You will also gain an understanding of MPLS components, both in terms of control plane and data plane operations. The course covers MPLS VPN routing using Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF), which allows for the creation of separate routing instances within a single physical router.

Additionally, the course delves into Layer 2 and Layer 3 MPLS VPNs, providing insights into their implementation and configuration. It also covers IPv6 MPLS VPN implementations, enabling you to extend MPLS VPN functionality to IPv6 networks. IP Multicast VPNs and shared services VPNs are other topics addressed in the course, offering solutions for specific networking scenarios.

Moreover, the course explores strategies for deploying MPLS VPNs across multiple Service Provider domains, aiming to improve network bandwidth utilization and efficiency.

By successfully completing the Implementing Cisco Service Provider VPN Services (SPVI) course and passing the associated 300-515 exam, you will earn the Cisco Certified Specialist – Service Provider VPN Services Implementation certification. This certification also fulfills the concentration exam requirement for the CCNP Service Provider certification, which is an advanced certification for professionals specializing in service provider network technologies.

Furthermore, upon completion of the course, you will receive 40 Continuing Education (CE) credits, which contribute to your ongoing recertification requirements.

Overall, this course provides comprehensive training on managing and implementing MPLS VPN services in service provider environments, enabling you to enhance your skills and advance your career in the networking field.
