The Deploying Cisco Service Provider Mobile Backhaul Solutions (MOBBKHL300) v1.0 is a 4-day instructor-led or virtual-led course that introduces learners to the service provider mobile backhaul solutions to include instruction and lab exercises on implementation, installation, and troubleshooting.
The course covers legacy mobile backhaul architectures and the Cisco mobile backhaul solution including the Cisco ASR 920 Router, ASR 907 Router, and Cisco ASR 9000 Series Routers. Learners also learn about the end-to-end communication between devices as well as the configuration of those devices in particular architectures.


Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:
  • Differentiate technologies and standards in legacy and Cisco IP architectures as they support a service provider mobile network
  • Plan the paths and protocols used to forward traffic end-to-end across all Cisco mobile backhaul devices
  • Configure the paths and protocols used to forward traffic end-to-end across all mobile backhaul devices
  • Understand why there is a need for legacy mobile backhaul support in our Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) and IP infrastructure
