Cisco IOS XR Ethernet VPN Implementation and Verification (IOSXR303)

Course Overview

The Cisco IOS XR Ethernet VPN Implementation and Verification1 (IOSXR303) course is an instructor-led, lab-based, hands-on course offered by Learning@Cisco. The overall course goal is for you to be able to implement and troubleshoot several Ethernet VPN (EVPN) technologies, including EVPN native, EVPN VPWS, PBB EVPN, EVPN IRB, and EVPN VXLAN, on Cisco IOS® XR devices. This course will examine next-generation solutions for Layer 2 VPN (L2VPN), EVPN terminology and concepts, and traffic forwarding. This course will also show students how to implement and troubleshoot the various EVPN technologies and investigate EVPN Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) seamless integration with Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS), EVPN out of service, virtual Ethernet segment, and EVPN route policy.
