Release 1

This version first released with ICT Information and Communications Technology Training Package Version 2.0.

Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to design an internet protocol-multiprotocol label switching (IP-MPLS) network, examine MLPS data flow and configure virtual private network (VPN) tunnelling.

It applies to individuals with excellent technical skills including designers and installers of Next Generation Networks (NGN). These IP networks provide fast internet, voice over internet protocol (VoIP) and internet protocol TV (IPTV) services.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

Elements and Performance Criteria

ELEMENT 

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA 

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Plan and design IP- MPLS network to meet business requirements

1.1 Determine IP-MPLS network design requirements in consultation with enterprise customer

1.2 Optimise factors affecting design

1.3 Use label stacking to route MPLS packets in the network to build of MPLS services

1.4 Dimension layer-3 generation of core backbone to allow MPLS IP-VPN to provide MPLS convergence services

1.5 Use MPLS control plane to set up wavelengths

1.6 Produce design topology of a MPLS network to include location and types of edge label switch routers (LSR) and core LSRs in agreement with enterprise customer

2. Configure MPLS network and verify traffic engineering (TE) considerations

2.1 Configure edge and core LSRs to provide secure methods of transporting IP packets in the MPLS network using layer 2 protocols

2.2 Configure LSRs to provide toll bypass for convergence of voice and data over IP network

2.3 Classify traffic in MPLS terms and configure edge LSR to sort traffic into forward equivalent classes (FECs)

2.4 Install and remove two standardised signalling protocols for managing traffic engineering (TE) of MPLS paths

2.5 Configure MPLS-TE to provide routing on diverse paths to avoid congestion and guarantee bandwidth services

3. Configure VPN and provide a virtual private LAN service (VPLS)

3.1 Configure a MPLS VPN tunnel for a customer network to provide multipoint-to-multipoint VPN connectivity

3.2 Build a content hosting server into a MPLS based VPN to produce a media network

3.3 Use virtual private LAN services (VPLS) as a VPN method for wide area network (WAN) multipoint-to-multipoint ethernet connectivity spanning multiple metropolitan areas

3.4 Produce VPLS topology using an internet protocol IP-MPLS cloud with provider edge (PE) routers connecting VPLS domains associated with an enterprise customer

4. Complete documentation

4.1 Produce a final design plan including network elements, configuration details and recommendations for design changes

4.2 Notify customer and obtain sign-off

Modification History

Release 

Comments 

Release 1

This version first released with ICT Information and Communications Technology Training Package Version 2.0.

Performance Evidence

Evidence of ability to:

  • plan and design a multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) network that meets business requirements
  • configure and test the MPLS network according to specified guidelines
  • produce design topology of a MPLS network
  • produce a final design plan including network elements, configuration details and recommendations for design changes
  • implement secure virtual private network (VPN) tunnelling.

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.

Knowledge Evidence

To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, the individual must:

  • explore current industry-accepted hardware and software products used in an IP-MPLS network
  • explain MPLS IP-VPN network operating systems including:
  • transmission technologies
  • protocols
  • describe the effect of the customer’s business domain, function and organisation on customer requirements and network equipment.

Assessment Conditions

Gather evidence to demonstrate consistent performance in conditions that are safe and replicate the workplace. Noise levels, production flow, interruptions and time variances should be typical of those experienced in the telecommunications networks engineering of work and include access to:

  • a live network and networked computers
  • network design documentation, equipment specifications and organisational guidelines
  • network components, routers, switches and multi-layer switches.

Assessors of this unit must satisfy the requirements for assessors in applicable vocational education and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards.
