Overview

The capability of Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) to identify traffic based on its label at forwarding time, coupled with its ability to force traffic down pre-established paths, has created a whole range of new applications while enabling scaling of existing applications. To highlight the emerging developments, Ina Minei and Julian Lucek cover traffic engineering, L3VPNs (Layer 3 Virtual Private Networks), pseudowires, VPLS (Virtual Private LAN Service), and much more. They methodically illustrate how MPLS holds the key to network convergence by allowing operators to offer more services over a single physical infrastructure and how it can reduce the cost of the network by streamining operations. With over a hundred illustrations and thirteen in-depth chapters MPLS-Enabled Applications documents why MPLS is now considered the networking technology for carrying all types of network traffic, including voice telephony, real-time video, and the many types of data traffic.

MPLS-Enabled Applications will provide those involved in the design and deployment of MPLS systems, as well as those researching the area of MPLS networks, with a thoroughly modern view of how MPLS is transforming the networking world.

Meet the Author

Ina Minei is a network protocols engineer at Juniper Networks whose focus is MPLS protocols and applications, DiffServ-aware traffic engineering and network convergence. She has helped to implement these and other features into the JUNOS operating system. She is active in industry forums, has presented MPLS tutorials at the North American Network Operators' Group conference and is a regular contributor to the IETF. She is the author of Juniper Networks' whitepaper on Diffserv-aware traffic engineering. Prior to joining Juniper Networks, she worked for Cisco Systems on the development of a next generation router operating system.

Julian Lucek has worked with the Photonics Research Department at British Telecom where he co-built the world's first all-optical regenerator before moving into the IP field to evaluate new routing platforms. His current post is that of Consulting Engineer for Juniper Networks working with major Service Providers on MPLS deployments. He is the author of many published papers in the field of communications technology and holds several patents in that area.
