What you’ll learn

The Leveraging IOS XR VPN Services (XRVPNS) training is designed to instruct participants on the implementation and troubleshooting of Layer 2 and Layer 3 Virtual Private Network (VPN) services within a service provider network running on Cisco IOS XR software. As the foundational operating system for most service provider networks and Cisco’s service provider device portfolio, IOS XR plays a pivotal role.

In this course, you will gain expertise in establishing a label-switched network infrastructure to enable VPN services, leveraging Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) or Segment Routing (SR). The curriculum covers the implementation and troubleshooting of both IPv4 and IPv6 Layer 3 VPN services, as well as Multicast VPN services using IOS XR. Additionally, participants will learn to deploy Ethernet VPN (EVPN) services, encompassing EVPN Integrated Routing and Bridging (EVPN IRB), EVPN-SR data center fabric, and advanced EVPN features.

Upon successful completion of the training, participants earn 24 Continuing Education (CE) credits, contributing to their recertification.
