Cisco published their official training on how to implement segment routing on Cisco IOS XR.
Operators have long optimized MPLS traffic to avoid congestion, meet SLAs, and even avoid certain countries due to legal requirements. Segment routing is the software upgrade designed to give service providers more control over their network. Instead of only attaching the final destination to each packet, this new approach to routing means that each packet carries the information defining each step it needs to take to the destination. Most importantly, the priorities of the application define what this best path is.
Cisco published the official Implementing Segment Routing on Cisco IOS XR (SEGRTE201) training on segment routing, which teaches how to implement it on Cisco IOS XR. The 4-day course introduces learners to concepts of application engineered routing, which encompasses segment routing traffic engineering and its associated protocols, network migration options, Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) egress engineering, and Cisco Agile Carrier Ethernet (ACE) architecture. Course attendees will learn how to implement segment routing, label distribution protocols (LDPs), topology-independent loop-free alternate fast reroute (TI LFA FRR), segment routing traffic engineering and BGP prefix segment identifiers (SIDs).
