An in-depth guide to understanding advanced MPLS implementation, including packet-based VPNs, ATM-based VPNs, traffic engineering, and quality of service

"Advanced MPLS Design and Implementation" enables you to: Understand MPLS through a detailed analysis of MPLS architecture and operationDesign and implement packet-based MPLS Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) using label switching routers (LSRs)Design and implement ATM-based MPLS VPNs using WAN-switched ATM LSRsImplement MPLS traffic engineering on your core network and optimize traffic flows dynamicallyImplement MPLS QoS and provide hard service guarantees with multiple classes of serviceAcquire practical design and implementation knowledge of real-world MPLS VPNs, TE, and QoS through case studies and configuration examples

Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a highly scalable, high-performance forwarding technology that has multiple applications in the service provider and enterprise environment. This book is intended for internetwork engineers and administrators who are responsible for designing, implementing, and supporting service provider or enterprise MPLS backbone networks. It contains a broad range of technical details on MPLS and its associated protocols, packet-based MPLS, ATM-based MPLS, MPLS traffic engineering, MPLS QoS, MPLS design, and advanced MPLS architectures.

This book contains MPLS theory, design, configuration, and various case studies. Use this book as a reference and guide for designing, implementing, and supporting an MPLS network. Even if you're not using Cisco(r) equipment, this book can increase your awareness and understanding of MPLS technology as well as provide you with detailed designconcepts and rules for building scalable MPLS networks.

"Advanced MPLS Design and Implementation" is your guide to understanding, designing, and implementing MPLS VPNs, WAN-switched MPLS VPNs, MPLS traffic engineering, and MPLS QoS.

He has over 14 years of experience with data communications technologies and protocols. He has designed and implemented numerous large-scale WAN-switched, LAN-switched, and routed networks for service provider and enterprise customers worldwide. Recently, he participated in the architecture and led the implementation of AT&T's MPLS backbone network in South America. This is one of the first successful implementations of BPX WAN switches and LSRs in a production MPLS environment. He holds a B.S. in electronics engineering and is working on his master's degree in telecommunications. Mr. Alwayn is also an active member of the IEEE and IETF.
