Nokia Services Architecture

Course number: 3FL30636AAAAZZZZA
Course duration: 4 days
Price: $2,775 US

Course overview

This course introduces Nokia’s implementation of the service concept. Students are walked through the steps for deploying virtual private network (VPN) and residential services in a service provider’s multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) network. Several services supported in the Nokia service routing portfolio are included - Internet enhanced service (IES), virtual private wire service (VPWS), virtual private LAN service (VPLS), and virtual private routed network service (VPRN). It covers the coupling of a layer-2 service with a layer-3 interface, including spoke termination of one service into another and routed VPLS. Some troubleshooting of service-related issues and debugging is covered. It also covers service mirroring and some service OAM commands. 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:

  • Demonstrate a basic understanding of Nokia services
  • Differentiate between a service access point (SAP) and network ports
  • Explain what is a service delivery point (SDP) and differentiate between mesh and spoke SDPs
  • Differentiate between transport tunnels and service tunnels
  • Understand the implications of maximum transmission unit (MTU) size
  • Use the correct OAM tools to analyze a configured system
  • Correctly configure an Epipe service
  • Manage Epipe services given an existing infrastructure


  • Describe the purpose and operation of a VPLS service.
  • Explain the different types of SAP encapsulations and describe their behavior
  • Correctly configure a VPLS service
  • Define and configure an Internet enhanced service (IES)
  • Configure and verify the operation of a remote and distributed mirror service
  • Identify the protocols and technologies required to implement VPRN service
  • Explain the interaction between the control and data plane of a VPRN service
  • Configure, verify, and troubleshoot an IPv4 and IPv6 VPRN Service
  • Describe the operation of a Routed VPLS Service
