Overview


Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is the single most important new technology for Internet routing to emerge in the past few years. When deployed over IP backbones, MPLS makes possible both efficient routing and virtual private networks while improving performance and traffic management.


MPLS is still a work in progress, but this volume contains the latest RFCs that describe MPLS and how it is used; also contained here are the foundational documents that will give you the background necessary to understand both how MPLS works, and why it is needed.


In addition to understanding MPLS itself, you will understand how it has changed over the years (since the earliest label switching proposals were first implemented and documented within the IETF by Cisco and Toshiba); how IP and ATM interact; and why MPLS helps ease the interaction. Also included are RFCs describing the Differentiated Services (DIFFSERV) and Integrated Services (INTSERV) models, and how MPLS works within those models.


Topics covered in this volume include:

  • Requirements for Traffic Engineering over MPLS (RFC 2702)
  • BGP/MPLS VPNS (RFC 2547)
  • NBMA Next Hop Resolution Protocol (NHRP)
  • Classical IP and ARP over ATM (RFC 2225)
  • Multiprotocol Encapsulation over ATM Adaptation Layer 5 (RFC 2684)
  • A Core MPLS IP VPN Architecture (RFC 2917)


And much more. If you buy only one reference on MPLS, this is the one to choose. Written by members of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), this compilation is a complete and authoritative reference on MPLS.
