Who should attend

This course is for network administrators, network operators, and system administrators who need to know how to configure and deploy carrier Ethernet services in their network environment. The following are the primary audience for this course:

  • Network administrators and operators


The following are the prerequisites for this course:

  • Ability to efficiently use Cisco IOS command line interface to perform configurations
  • Ability to design hierarchial layer 2 and layer 3 networks
  • Ability to configure, optimise, and scale dynamic routing protocols, in particular OSPF, BGP, and MPLS
  • Ability to configure, optimise, and scale layer 2 protocols
  • Familiarity with QoS and SLA principles and methodologies

Course Objectives

Upon completion of this course, students should be able to:

  • Identify different Ethernet service type architectues as defined by the MEF
  • Identify the various devices used within a carrier Ethernet system
  • Describe the functions fo each device within a carrier Ethernet system
  • Configure CPE network functions to connect to a Point of Presence (POP)
  • Configure routed CPE functions
  • Configure a routing interface and routing protocol
  • Configure bridged CPE functions
  • Configure an 802.1Q interface
  • Configure access network functions to allow customer data into the network by completing the following tasks:
  • Configure an access node User Network Interface (UNI)
  • Configure an access node Network-to-Network

Interface (NNI)

  • Configure 802.1Q trunking per port and per access node
  • Configure Layer 2 Protocol Tunneling (L2PT)
  • Configure 1:1 and N:1 Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) connectivity
  • Aggregate customer traffic within the SP network by completing the following tasks;
  • Configure flexible Ethernet UNI functions
  • Configure UNI classification based on port, 802.1Q, 802.1Q range, QinQ, and untagged traffic
  • Configure translation and rewrites
  • Configure carrier Ethernet forwarding functions
  • Configure EoMPLS pseudowire and Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) Virtual Forwarding Instance
  • Configure hierarchial VPLS (H-VPLS)
  • Configure EoMPLS pseudowire aggregation
  • Configure EoMPLS pseudowire switch function
  • Configure MPLS NNI function between aggregation and core
  • Configure a core network to transport customer traffic through a SP network
  • Configure MPLS within a core network
  • Increase availability of layer 2 services within a SP network by configuring pseudowire redundancy and MPLS traffic engineering with fast reroute
  • Ensure integrity and security of customer data and a SP network by completing the following tasks:
  • Secure access into a SP network
  • Secure the aggregation and distribution network layers
  • Implement Quality of Service (QoS) mechanisms in order to meet service level agreements (SLAs) for different traffic types
  • Monitor and manage end-to-end layer 2 Ethernet services using Ethernet-OAM

Course Contents

he Cisco Deploying and Maintaining Carrier Ethernet Services course gives students the knowledge and skills required to configure, administer, and deploy Layer 2 Ethernet services as defined by the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) on a service provider Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)-enable network.

Students learn how to configure Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) to connect to a SP network and configure an access network and aggregation, distribution, and core portions of a SP network. Students also learn how to secure a SP network to protect it from attack. Labs are available to reinforce what is discussed in the lecture.
