Learning MPLS

Hi All,

 

    Are there any good Juniper resources to start learning MPLS.  I have some lab gear but cant seem to find any Juniper labs or configurations that I could use to play around and learn how to setup MPLS networks.  Has anyone come across anything that is good?

 

Thanks!

Re: Learning MPLS

I can recommend the book MPLS Enabled Applications as a great resource.

There isn't a lot of material out there for someone who's new to MPLS and wants to know how to do it with Junos (yet).

 

After you understand the fundamentals, take a look at the JNCIE-M Study Guide (http://www.juniper.net/us/en/training/certification/JNCIE_studyguide.pdf)

 

There's also a good Configuration Guide posted at:  http://www.juniper.net/techpubs/en_US/junos9.6/information-products/topic-collections/config-guide-m...

Re: Learning MPLS

Hi,

 

Depending on the depth you're looking for, you could try any of the legacy Study Guides, located here - http://www.juniper.net/us/en/training/certification/books.html.

 

The JNCIA-M guide has MPLS basics and basic config.

The JNCIS-M guide has more advanced MPLS topics and config.

The JNCIE-M guide has 'applied' scenarios for topics from the previous guide.

 

Some other links (keep searching for more)..
