NSP Classic Management
NFM-P: IP/ MPLS Network
Provisioning - Resiliency

Course number: OS01002-V-1900
Course duration: 3 days (including lectures and hands-on lab exercises)

Course overview

The content in this training is intended to develop a good understanding of the technologies and principles to configure, monitor, and troubleshooting resiliency techniques in an SR OS -based IP/MPLS transport network, including: Ethernet physical layer; IRP (Internal Routing Protocol); and, both LDP and RSVP-TE LSP protection mechanisms. This course is a combination of theoretical discussion and hands-on practical exercises using the Classic Management NFM-P (Network Functions Manager – Packet) GUI as the primary management interface, though CLI (Command Line Interface) may be used where necessary.

Course objectives

The learner will be able to:

  • Explain and configure Link Aggregate Group (LAG)
  • Explain and configure Multi--chassis LAG
  • Explain and configure Loop Free Alternative (LFA)
  • Explain and configure Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD)



  • Explain MPLS protection mechanism
  • Explain and configure different LDP protection mechanism
  • Explain and configure RSVP-TE Detour LSP
  • Explain and configure RSVP-TE Fast ReRoute
