This book provides a comprehensive understanding of current and debated future networking technologies. It gives insight into building end-to-end networks and services with Carrier Ethernet, PBT, MPLS-TP, and VPLS while also shedding light on the pros and cons of these technologies for service providers and enterprise network owners.

Focusing on layer-2 networking and services, Networks and Services covers:

  • The basics of Ethernet such as protocol stack, bridges, switches, and hubs
  • Key techniques that are being used in building carrier-class Carrier Ethernet networks and services like synchronization, pseudowires, and protection
  • Carrier Ethernet network architectures and services that are currently deployed in the industry
  • Traffic management and OAM capabilities of Carrier Ethernet
  • Circuit Emulation Services
  • PBB and PBT to resolve possible scalability issues of Carrier Ethernet
  • Technologies that are competing or working with Carrier Ethernet in forming data networks and services, Transport MPLS, MPLS Transport Profile, and VPLS

Networks and Services: Carrier Ethernet, PBT, MPLS-TP, and VPLS is ideal for network architects, engineers, and planning professionals in telecommunications, as well as students and researchers in related disciplines.
