SPEDGE-ICSPNGENSv10 SPEDGE - Implementing Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Edge Network Services v1.0

Network Training Course Description:
In this course, you will learn how to implement Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) within their networks and how to enable service provider point of presence (POP) to provide Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPNs. Through hands-on labs, you will gain practical skills on deploying Cisco IOS/IOS XE and Cisco IOS XR features to operate and support service provider network. This course helps you prepare for Exam 642-889 SPEDGE, which is needed for CCNP Service Provider certification.
