Metro Service Providers are increasingly turning to Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) to converge disparate networks and services into a unified core, maintain quality, and deliver additional value-added capabilities. MPLS for Metropolitan Area Networks addresses service providers' challenges by demonstrating solutions provided by MPLS features such as traffic engineering (TE), fast reroute, VPNs, virtual private LAN services (VPLS), and QoS. The text opens with an overview of metro networks and MPLS, describing business opportunities and challenges and how mission-critical applications can be deployed within Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs). It then examines traffic engineering issues, focusing on fundamental TE concepts, network control, trunk attributes, constraint-based routing (CBR), Resource Reservation Protocol with TE extensions (RSVP-TE), and resource optimization. Following a discussion on how MPLS can bring increased reliability to MANs, the author then concludes the book with a detailed analysis of the service aspect of MANs. Topics reviewed include L3 and L2 MPLS VPNs, geographically dispersed Ethernet multipoint services, virtual private LAN services (VPLS), and the integrated services (IntServ) and differentiated services (DiffServ) QoS models with respect to MPLS.

The entire book adopts a simplify-and-exemplify approach, containing a series of real-life case studies and using representative topologies as a basis for illustrating the concepts discussed in each chapter. This learning-by-example approach helps you to remember and understand the complex MPLS concepts and technologies. You can then apply what you have learned from these examples and scenarios to your specific networking environments. TOC:

Reviews for MPLS for Metropolitan Area Networks

Far more than simply a chronicle of a Victorian marriage, this biography of Edward Cecil and his wife Violet paints a vivid picture of the life of the aristocracy and political elite in imperial Britain. Born in 1867, the son of the influential Prime Minister Lord Salisbury, Edward followed a conventional route into adulthood, attending Eton and then joining the Grenadier Guards, with whom he saw action in the Sudan and Boer War before being transferred to Egypt where he served in the finance ministry under Kitchener. He married Violet in 1894, but she was an intelligent, sociable and often outspoken women, and Edward never quite matched up to her expectations. Instead she formed a lasting attachment to the influential statesman, Alfred Milner whom she married after Edward's death from Spanish flu and TB. Their happy marriage was cut short by Alfred's death after only four years, and Violet lived as a widow for over 30 years. She remained, however, an active member of society, mixing in royal circles and continuing to engage in politics as she took over the running of her brother's political newspaper, the National Review. With a helpful family tree, maps, photographs and an extensive bibliography, the book gives an interesting and detailed account of what was a turbulent time in history. Insights into the machinations of the great political and military figures of the day are combined with portrayals of family and social life, in the austere setting of the magnificent Jacobean Hatfield House or the idyll of Cecil Rhodes's house in South Africa, and the personal tragedy of Violet and Edward as they, like so many of their friends, lost their son in the First World War.
