Nokia Ethernet Virtual Private Network Services

Course number: OP00086
Course duration: 4 days
Price: $3,125 US

Course overview

The Nokia Ethernet Virtual Private Network (EVPN) Services course provides students with the critical knowledge required to deploy and operate EVPN Layer-2 and Layer-3 services. Topics such as EVPN concepts and terminology are covered. The course also explores the different EVPN route types required to support the operation of EVPN ELAN, EVPN integrated routing and bridging, and EVPN Eline services. In addition, it entails the operation of all-active and single-active multi-homing. Upon completion of this course, students will understand the operation of EVPN and be able to configure and troubleshoot EVPN services. Comprehensive hands-on lab exercises accompany the course to reinforce the course learning objectives. All use cases and lab exercises are based on the model-driven command-line interface (MD-CLI). 

Course objectives

After completing the course, students should be able to:

  • Define the basic EVPN concepts
  • Demonstrate the use of EVPN for ELAN services
  • Identify the EVPN route types used to support EVPN VPLS
  • Explain the use of EVPN for Layer-3 services
  • Identify the EVPN route types used to support EVPN Layer-3 services
  • List and explain the different Layer-3 EVPN forwarding models
  • Identify the EVPN route types required to support multi-homing
  • Describe the designated forwarder election procedure
  •     Describe the basics of the TCP/IP layered model
  •     Identify where in the network the products of the Nokia Service Router family are being used
  •     Perform basic configuration with the command line interface of the Nokia 7750 Service Router
  •     Explain the purpose and operation of the Ethernet protocol
  •     Describe the Internet Protocol (IP) addressing and forwarding process
  •     Explain the difference between static routing and dynamic routing protocols
