Course Overview

Course Duration: 5 Days.
DMCE - Advanced Services - Deploying and Maintaining Carrier Ethernet Services - This course provides the knowledge and skills required to configure, administer, and deploy Layer 2 Ethernet services, as defined by the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF), on a service provider (SP) Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)-enable network. Through lecture and hands-on labs, you'll learn how to configure customer premise equipment (CPE) to connect to an SP network and to configure an access network and aggregation, distribution, and core portions of a SP network. You'll also learn how to secure an SP network to protect it from attack.

Who Should Attend

  • Network administrators, network operators, and system administrators who need to know how to configure and deploy carrier Ethernet services in their network environment.

Course Certifications

This course is part of the following Certifications:


  • Ability to efficiently use Cisco IOS® Software command line interface to perform configurations
  • Ability to design hierarchical Layer 2 and Layer 3 networks
  • Ability to configure, optimize, and scale dynamic routing protocols, in particular Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), and MPLS
  • Ability to configure, optimize, and scale Layer 2 protocols
  • Familiarity with QoS and SLA principles and methodologies

Course Objectives

  • Identify the different Ethernet service type architectures as defined by the MEF
  • Identify the various devices used in a Carrier Ethernet system
  • Describe the functions of each device in a Carrier Ethernet system
  • Configure CPE network functions to connect to a point of presence (POP)
  • Configure access network functions to allow customer data into the network
  • Aggregate customer traffic in a service provider network
  • Configure a core network to transport customer traffic through a service provider network
  • Increase availability of Layer 2 services in a service provider network by configuring pseudowire redundancy
  • Configure Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) and Hierarchical VPLS (H-VPLS) to extend customer networks to multiple sites
  • Scale the deployment of Ethernet multipoint (E-LAN) services by configuring VPLS autodiscovery and pseudowire switching
  • Help ensure integrity and security of customer data and a service provider network
  • Identify the quality of service (QoS) used to meet service-level agreements (SLAs) for different traffic types
