MPLS L2 VPN and MPLS L3 VPN are both taught by INE expert instructor Travis Bonfigli.


In this course, students will be exposed to the inner workings of MPLS L2 VPNs. You'll cover the L2 VPN basics, and compare and contrast Virtual Private Wire Service (VPWS) and Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS). The configurations of both Any Transport over MPLS (AToM) and VPLS are also fully configured and explained.


In this course, students will be introduced to one of the most popular applications of MPLS: MPLS L3 VPN. This course will cover many topics, including:

  • Configuration basics of Virtual Routing & Forwarding (VRF)
  • PE-CE routing protocol configuration and semantics
  • eBGP
  • OSPFv2
  • OSPF sham link
  • Down bit
  • Domain tag values
  • BGP cost community
  • EIGRP Site of Origin (SoO)
  • RIPv2
  • Static routes


All simulations in both courses are done using Cisco’s Virtual Internet Routing Lab (VIRL) software and all configurations are available in both text files and original VIRL.virl format.
