Nokia Services Architecture

The Nokia Services Architecture course is an introduction to Nokia's concept of the service implementation. Students are walked through the steps for deploying virtual private network (VPN) and residential services in a service provider’s multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) network. Various services supported in the Nokia service routing portfolio are covered in this course — Internet enhanced service (IES), virtual private wire service (VPWS), virtual private LAN service (VPLS), and virtual private routed network service (VPRN). Service mirroring and service OAM are also covered.
