“Here at last is a single, all-encompassing resource where the myriad applications sharpen into a comprehensible text.” Kireeti Kompella, Juniper Fellow, Juniper Networks. The authoritative guide to MPLS, now in its second edition, fully updated with brand new material! Multiprotocol Label Switching (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, the Second 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 Second Edition contains more than 150 illustrations, new chapters, and more coverage, guiding the reader from the basics of the technology, including signaling protocols, traffic engineering and fast reroute, though all its major applications. MPLS Enabled-Applications, Second Edition, contains comprehensive up-to-date coverage of: the current status and the future potential of all major MPLS applications, including L3VPNs (Layer 3 Virtual Private Networks), L2VPNs (Layer 2 Virtual Private Networks), pseudowires and VPLS . (Virtual Private LAN Service). extensive discussion of multicast support over MPLS, including a new chapter dedicated to multicast in VPNs, explaining both the PIM/GRE (Protocol Independent Multicast / Generic Routing Encapsulation) and the next generation BGP/MPLS solutions, new material on support of multicast in VPLS, a much-expanded chapter on MPLS multicast and a section perations and management (OAM) tools for point-to-multipoint LSPs. a new chapter on MPLS in access networks, as well as coverage of the use of MPLS in mobile and data communication networks. interoperation of LDP(Label Distribution Protocol) and BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) based VPLS. comprehensive coverage of the base technology, as well as the latest IETF drafts With a foreword by Yakov Rekhter

MPLS Network Management

Author: Thomas D. Nadeau
Publisher: Elsevier
ISBN: 9780080512167
Release Date: 2003-01-04
Genre: Computers

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.

MPLS based VPNs

Author: Peter Tomsu
Publisher: Prentice Hall
ISBN: 0130282251
Release Date: 2002
Genre: Computers

Most mid-size to large firms as well as service providers use VPNs (Virtual Private Networks). This is a network engineer's guide to VPN deployment using MPLS. It explains the advantages of this -which include security, scalability, stability and ease of management -and covers major deployment models in the enterprise - ADSL, cable, mobile/wireless, and Dial Access. The work focuses on a comparison of MPLS-VPNs with competing technologies, and discusses the benefits and trade-offs.

Designing and Implementing IP MPLS Based Ethernet Layer 2 VPN Services

Author: Zhuo Xu
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9780470730560
Release Date: 2010-01-15
Genre: Computers

A guide to designing and implementing VPLS services over an IP/MPLS switched service provider backbone Today's communication providers are looking for convenience, simplicity, and flexible bandwidth across wide area networks-but with the quality of service and control that is critical for business networking applications like video, voice and data. Carrier Ethernet VPN services based on VPLS makes this a reality. Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) is a pseudowire (PW) based, multipoint-to-multipoint layer 2 Ethernet VPN service provided by services providers By deploying a VPLS service to customers, the operator can focus on providing high throughput, highly available Ethernet bridging services and leave the layer 3 routing decision up to the customer. Virtual Private LAN Services (VPLS) is quickly becoming the number one choice for many enterprises and service providers to deploy data communication networks. Alcatel-Lucent VPLS solution enables service providers to offer enterprise customers the operational cost benefits of Ethernet with the predictable QoS characteristics of MPLS.

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 140207249X
Release Date: 2003
Genre: Computers

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.
