Purchase Options:

VRF-lite is a scaled down version of MPLS that can be run on Catalyst 6500 (Supervisor 32 , Supervisor 720), Catalyst 3750 Series, Cisco ISR Series,and more. VRF-lite is used to create separate routing domains (or virtual routing) on the same hardware infrastructure.

This training workbook will provide the following:

  1. Learn the concepts of VRF-lite that matter in terms of the components and protocols involved.
  2. Learn how to design VRF-lite as a solution with practical steps, considerations, and tools.
  3. Learn how to configure VRF-lite with best practices and get operational step-by-step configuration.
  4. Learn how to monitor, troubleshoot, and confirm the operational state of VRF-lite in your configured network.

This is what we call C.D.C.M (Concepts, Design, Configuration, Monitor), important for network engineers and consultants to know how to manage a network in real time.
