TEL 505: Voice Over IP and MPLS

Course Overview

The objective of this course is to provide delegates with a technical and practical overview of Voice over IP (VoIP) and MPLS. The course will introduce VOIP which lays the foundation for gaining skills and significant understanding of packet telephony by presenting the technologies that are common for both Enterprise and Service Provider delegates. The course will also provide an overview of basic MPLS, the component of an MPLS network and the Architecture.
