With a foreword by Yakov Rekhter "Here at last is a single, all encompassing resource where the myriad applications sharpen into a comprehensible text that first explains the whys and whats of each application before going on to the technical detail of the hows." —Kireeti Kompella, CTO Junos, Juniper Networks The authoritative guide to MPLS, now in its Third edition, fully updated with brand new material! MPLS is now considered the networking technology for carrying all types of network traffic, including voice telephony, real-time video, and data traffic. In MPLS-Enabled Applications, Third Edition, the authors methodically show how MPLS holds the key to network convergence by allowing operators to offer more services over a single physical infrastructure. The Third Edition contains more than 170 illustrations, new chapters, and more coverage, guiding the reader from the basics of the technology, though all its major VPN applications. MPLS Enabled-Applications contains up-to-date coverage of: The current status and future potential of all major MPLS applications, including L2VPN, L3VPN, pseudowires and VPLS. A new chapter with up to date coverage of the MPLS transport profile, MPLS-TP. MPLS in access networks and Seamless MPLS, the new architecture for extending MPLS into the access, discussed in depth for both the unicast and the multicast case. Extensive coverage of multicast support in L3VPNs (mVPNs), explaining and comparing both the PIM/GRE and the next generation BGP/MPLS solutions, and including a new chapter on advanced topics in next generation multicast VPNs. A new chapter on advanced protection techniques, including detailed discussion of 50 ms end-to-end service restoration. Comprehensive coverage of the base technology, as well as the latest IETF drafts, including topics such as pseudowire redundancy, VPLS multihoming, IRB and P2MP pseudowires. MPLS-Enabled Applications will provide those involved in the design and deployment of MPLS systems, as well as those researching the area of MPLS networks, with a thoroughly modern view of how MPLS is transforming the networking world. "Essential new material for those trying to understand the next steps in MPLS." —Adrian Farrel, IETF Routing Area Director "MPLS-Enabled Applications takes a unique and creative approach in explaining MPLS concepts and how they are applied in practice to meet the needs of Enterprise and Service Provider networks. I consistently recommend this book to colleagues in the engineering, education and business community." —Dave Cooper, Chief IP Technologist, Global Crossing Ltd
"Provides detailed information on existing Multicast and MVPN standards, referred to as Next-Generation Multicast based standards, Multicast Applications, and case studies with detailed configurations"--Provided by publisher.

MPLS-enabled networks are enjoying tremendous growth, but practical information on managing MPLS-enabled networks has remained hard to find. Until now. MPLS Network Management: MIBs, Tools, and Techniques is the first and only book that will help you master MPLS management technologies and techniques, as they apply to classic MPLS networks, traffic-engineered networks, and VPNs. Written by the co-author of most current MPLS management standards, it provides detailed, authoritative coverage of official MIBs, examining key topics ranging from syntax to access levels to object interaction. It also offers extensive consideration of third-party management interfaces, including tools for metering traffic and predicting traffic growth and behavior. If you're a network operator, network device engineer, or MPLS application developer, you need this book to get all you can out of all of MPLS's many capabilities. * The only book devoted entirely to the tools and techniques for controlling, monitoring, debugging, and optimizing MPLS-enabled networks. * Authoritative information from the co-author of most IETF MIBs relating to MPLS and GMPLS, PWE3, and PPVPN. * Covers both standards-based and proprietary management technologies. * Includes interviews with seminal figures in the development of MPLS. * Via a companion web site, provides information on late-breaking developments in MPLS management and links to additional resources. * To be followed by a second volume presenting best-practice case studies dealing with how real companies approach the management of their MPLS networks.

Networking Infrastructure for Pervasive Computing: Enabling Technologies & Systems is a comprehensive guide to tomorrow's world of ubiquitous computing where users can access and manipulate information from everywhere at all times. The emphasis is on networking, systems and standards rather than detailed physical implementation. Addressed are many technical obstacles, such as, connectivity, levels of service, performance, and reliability and fairness. The authors also describe the existing enabling off-the-shelf technologies and its underlying infrastructure known as pervasive networking (PervNet). PervNet ties different sets of smart nodes together enabling them to communicate with each other to provide pervasive computing services to users. Throughout the book, important issues related to scalability, transparency, security, energy management, QoS provisioning, fault tolerance, and disconnected operations are discussed. This work provides a research and development perspective to the field of PervNet and will serve as an essential reference for network designers, operators and developers.
