MPLS (MultiProtocol Label Switching) is a controversial new protocol that vastly simplifies Internet traffic and effectively removes obstacles to Voice Over IP applications. Here is the first book to thoroughly explain and evaluate MPLS specifically for the voice markets.

* Explains a potentially disruptive technology for telephony
* Shows providers how to protect their revenues during deployment
* Details key engineering problems such as classes of service, traffic engineering, overlays, and more

Carriers see MPLS as the way to deliver quality of service for voice over IP and over 80% of network traffic in North America is projected to be IP-based by the end of 2002. At that point, MPLS will be mandatory.

MPLS is many things to many people. If you're moving IP voice traffic, it may mean performance gains for you.

Daniel Minoli's Voice Over MPLS gives you the technical and business lowdown on innovative new solutions for packet-based voice. What does it take to build flexible, high-performance networks with enhanced quality of service? Maybe not as much as you think.


With VoMPLS, you can deliver the quality associated with VoIP over ATM links without the cost in either bandwidth or equipment. Based on label-switching standards from the IETF and the work of a number of leading companies, Voice over MPLS lets you packetize voice without the added overhead of IP encapsulation. It also suppresses periods of silence, freeing up bandwidth for other uses.

From one of the most experienced names in telecom technology, Voice Over MPLS shows you how to—
* Provide multiple, high-quality services without costly leased lines
* Deliver low-bandwidth voice over ATM, Frame Relay, or IP
* Add phone “lines” without adding equipment
* Solve scaling issues for small- and medium-sized users
* Obtain consistent call quality without crunching bandwidth
* Discover ways to protect revenues during deployment
* Evaluate the potential role of VoMPLS in big-picture convergence
* Evaluate VoMPLS's impact on public networks

Find the engineering details you need for Label Switched Paths (LSPs), layers, signaling, CoS (Classes of Service), QoS (Quality of Service), VoMPLS in VPNs (Virtual Private Networks), implementation options, deployment, and more.
