MPLS and Advanced BGP Topics

UofSC and NSF

The development of this lab series was supported with funding from the National Science Foundation Award 1829698 “CyberTraining CIP: Cyberinfrastructure Expertise on High-throughput Networks for Big Science Data Transfers” at the University of South Carolina (UofSC). The labs provide hands-on training in the technologies used to build and configure high-speed networks.

The MPLS and Advance BGP Topics training provides deeper insights about the protocols’ configuration as well as the security aspects and mitigations techniques. The labs are supported using the MPLS and Advanced BGP Topics Pod.
