From Barnes & NobleThe Barnes & Noble Review
MPLS is moving rapidly from standards bodies to interoperability labs to real-world enterprise, service provider, and carrier environments. The growing buzz over optical IP positions MPLS as a "holy grail" technology for finally unifying network configuration, management, and real-time provisioning. Even now, real organizations are saving money and maximizing flexibility with MPLS-based VPNs. Want to know how to make MPLS work for you? Then you want MPLS and VPN Architectures.
The authors, both CCIEs, start by reviewing the scalability and flexibility limitations that led to MPLS, and explaining how MPLS overcomes them. Next, you'll find detailed coverage of both frame-mode and cell-mode MPLS operation; practical approaches to deploying MPLS in intranet and extranet environments; and a detailed migration case study.
Part II -- two-thirds of the book -- focuses specifically on MPLS-based VPNs. You'll consider both approaches to MPLS VPNs, overlay and peer-to-peer. You'll review options for connecting providers and customers; master sophisticated techniques such as route reflector hierarchies and BGP confederations; and learn how MPLS can be used in "carrier's carrier" and inter-provider environments. Whatever your application, MPLS and VPN Architectures can help you implement MPLS with minimum hassle -- and maximum benefit.(Bill Camarda)
