IMPLEMENTING BROADBAND AGGREGATION ON
This four-day hands-on course provides you with the information required to implement various broadband aggregation
technologies on Cisco Systems® routers, including routed bridge encapsulation (RBE), Point-to-Point Protocol over ATM
(PPPoA), Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE), and Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP). Nine lab sessions help
you practice the techniques taught to ensure you are able to implement the technologies on your network. You also
explore related technologies including PPPoE over Ethernet (PPPoEoE), PPPoE over IEEE 802.1Q (PPPoEoVLAN), and
PPPoE over IEEE 802.1Q Tunneling (PPPoEoQinQ). You will learn how to implement broadband aggregation on the
Cisco® 10000 Series Router and apply the lessons learned as applicable to the Cisco 7200 and 7301 Series Routers.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This course is intended for network professionals who need to know how to implement broadband aggregation technologies on Cisco 10000,
7200, and 7301 Series Routers.
After completing this course, you should be able to:
• Compare and contrast the various broadband aggregation architectures available with Cisco routers
• Explain how RBE and Request for Comments (RFC) 1483 routing work, describe their typical architectures and benefits, and configure them
on Cisco routers
• Explain how PPPoA and PPPoE work, along with descriptions of their typical architecture and benefits, and configure them on Cisco routers
• Explain and configure various methods for optimizing subscriber connections, including permanent virtual connection (PVC) range,
autodetect PPP over X (PPPoX) encapsulation, virtual connection (VC) class, ATM PVC autoprovisioning, and broadband aggregation
• Explain authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA)
