MPLS on MikroTik with LABS

Get a better performance in your ISP using MPLS protocol and understand all its feature such as VRF VPN, VPLS & TE

What you'll learn

  • Understand what is MPLS and where to use it
  • Understand how to have a BGP free core in your ISP using MPLS
  • Understand the MPLS acronyms ((CE, PE, P, Label Push, Label Swap, Label Pop)
  • Configure MPLS using the static labeling
  • Configure MPLS using the dynamic labeling
  • Filter MPLS using Accept and Advertise Filter
  • Understand and configure VRF lite on MikroTik
  • Understand MPLS layer 3 VPN using VRF
  • Configure MPLS layer 3 VPN using VRF
  • Understand and configure MPLS layer 2 VPN using VPLS
  • Understand what is MPLS Traffic Engineering
  • Configure MPLS Traffic Engineering
  • Run VPLS over TE Tunnels
  • Good knowledge of BGP routing protocol
  • Good knowledge of OSPF routing protocol
MPLS is a protocol that runs inside the ISP networks. Deploying MPLS is always a challenge because of its complexity. However, MPLS has a much better performance than any other routing protocol because it works on Labels for the routing decision and it works on layer 2.5 instead of layer 3 as other routing protocols such as RIP, OSPF and BGP.
Using MPLS, the ISP will be able to have a lot of benefits from feature that it provides such as Layer 3 VPN using VRF, Layer 2 VPN using VPLS, Traffic Engineering Tunnels and much more.
In this course, I will go through MPLS from scratch, so I am going to explain to you what MPLS is exactly and how it works, then i am going to start doing labs to cover all topics possibles in MPLS.
Topics that I am going to cover in this course are:
  • Introduction to MPLS
  • MPLS Basics, MPLS Labels and MPLS Filtering
  • MPLS Layer3 VPN - VRF
  • MPLS Layer 2 VPN - VPLS
  • MPLS Traffic Engineering
All the course will be based on hands-on LABS, so by end of the course you will have a big understanding of how to deploy MPLS in your ISP using MikroTik Routers.

To be able to follow this course, you can use GNS3 because in some LABS we require to have up to 7 MikroTik Routers. Of course if you have those routers than you can deploy them and work on physical routers to to the LABS.

Finally, If you have to master MPLS on MikroTik and understand how it works, I highly advise you to register in my course and get all the information that i am going to share with you.

Who this course is for:
  • Engineers who work in Internet Service Provider using MikroTik Routers and want to deploy MPLS
  • Students who want to learn how to configure MPLS on MikroTik routers
