DiffServ-Aware Traffic Engineering Workshop (DSTE)


Course Overview

This one-day course covers the basics of the traffic engineering database as it relates to DiffServ-Aware TE. The DiffServ-Aware TE course covers the purpose and use of DiffServ-Aware TE, how to set up and configure DiffServ-Aware TE LSPs, and how to troubleshoot issues with DiffServ-Aware TE LSPs.

Who should attend

This course benefits individuals responsible for configuring and troubleshooting issues with DiffServ-Aware TE LSPs


  • Intermediate-level networking knowledge.
  • Understanding of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model and the TCP/IP protocol suite.

Course Objectives

  • Describe the path selection process of RSVP LSPs signaled without the use of Constrained Shortest Path First (CSPF).
  • Describe the IGP extensions needed to build and maintain the Traffic Engineering Database (TED).
  • Explain how the CSPF algorithm selects the best path based on provided constraints.
  • Explain how administrative groups can be used to influence path selection.
  • Explain the behavior of inter-area traffic engineered LSPs.
  • Describe the purpose, features, and operations of DiffServ-Aware TE.
  • Explain the differences between DiffServ-Aware TE LSPs and standard LSPs.
  • Explain the purpose of class types and TE classes.
  • Describe the MAM and Russian doll bandwidth constraint models.
  • Explain the purpose of multiclass DiffServ-Aware TE LSPs.
  • Explain DiffServ-Aware TE LSP oversubscription.
  • Describe how to configure DiffServ-Aware TE LSPs.
  • Explain how to forward traffic into DiffServ-Aware TE LSPs.
  • Explain how to provide traffic protection for DiffServ-Aware TE LSPs.
  • Describe how to configure automatic bandwidth adjustments for DiffServ-Aware TE LSPs.
  • Explain how to verify and monitor DiffServ-Aware TE LSPs.
  • Describe DiffServ-Aware LSP troubleshooting.
  • Explain how to troubleshoot CSFP issues.
  • Explain how to troubleshoot DiffServ-Aware TE issues.
  • Explain how to troubleshoot CoS for existing DiffServ-Aware LSPs.
