The authoritative, practical introduction to the final MPLS standard!

  • Fully updated to cover the final, official MPLS standard
  • Presents detailed enterprise and service provider example scenarios
  • Includes up-to-the-minute coverage of QoS and MPLS-based VPNs
  • Introduces the new Generalized MPLS and RSVP-TE protocols

MPLS will be at the heart of tomorrow's flexible, manageable, and cost-effective networks. MPLS and Label Switching Networks, Second Edition is the authoritative resource you need to understand MPLS technologies-and implement them for competitive advantage. Renowned communications consultant Uyless Black illuminates the final MPLS standard through practical examples and detailed diagrams, offering start-to-finish guidance on using MPLS to maximize network reliability, utilization, and performance. Coverage includes:

  • Integrating MPLS into ATM and Frame Relay networks-and both IPv4 and IPv6 environments
  • Traffic engineering-including RSVP-TE and CR-LDP
  • Building more resilient service provider and ISP backbones
  • Configuring MPLS-based networks for rapid service restoration
  • Deploying and securing MPLS-based VPNs
