<Please login to see the content>
The video lays a foundation of MPLS by looking at configuration of Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) on Cisco router. We will learn how MPLS routers use LDP to discover their neighbors, create series of LDP sessions to form a Label Switching Path (LSP), and finally exchange MPLS labels. LDP binding table will be examined in attempt to understand how a packet is label-switched from an ingress to an egress router. Wireshark capture will be performed as we will spend time analysing LDP messages and packets.
Part 1 of this video goes over basic configuration of LDP and binding table
  • Label Distribution Protocol (LDP)
  • LDP Binding Table
  • MPLS Forwarding Table
  • LDP Messages
  • LDP Packet Review
