IP / MPLS – Security mechanisms

advanced level / technicians

Training deals with issues of ensuring security in IP/MPLS networks and presents basics of protective mechanisms. Mechanisms of protection of IP networks (convergence of routing protocols, LFA) and MPLS networks (secondary path, FRR) are presented in depth. The explaines the protective mechanisms in multicast transmission mode and in providing multihoming. The practical part shows a demo of protective mechanisms on the MPLS network equipment.


  • Basics of protective mechanisms
    • Sharing and techniques (mechanisms for protection, mechanisms for recovery)
    • Segments of activity (devices, connections, paths)
    • Basic building blocks (detection, signaling, performance)
  • IP security mechanisms
    • Rapid convergence of routing protocols (OSPF, IS-IS, BGP, BGP PIC)
    • LFA / IP FRR
  • MPLS security mechanisms
    • Secondary path
    • FRR
  • Protective mechanisms in broadcasting to multiple recipients
  • The mechanisms for ensuring multihoming
