Design, configure, and manage MPLS TE to optimize network performance Almost every busy network backbone has some congested links while others remain underutilized. That's because shortest-path routing protocols send traffic down the path that is shortest without considering other network parameters, such as utilization and traffic demands. Using Traffic Engineering (TE), network operators can redistribute packet flows to attain more uniform distribution across all links. Forcing traffic onto specific pathways allows you to get the most out of your existing network capacity while making it easier to deliver consistent service levels to customers at the same time. Cisco(r) Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) lends efficiency to very large networks, and is the most effective way to implement TE. MPLS TE routes traffic flows across the network by aligning resources required by a given flow with actual backbone capacity and topology. This constraint-based routing approach feeds the network route traffic down one or more pathways, preventing unexpected congestion and enabling recovery from link or node failures. Traffic Engineering with MPLS provides you with information on how to use MPLS TE and associated features to maximize network bandwidth. This book focuses on real-world applications, from design scenarios to feature configurations to tools that can be used in managing and troubleshooting MPLS TE. Assuming some familiarity with basic label operations, this guide focuses mainly on the operational aspects of MPLS TE-how the various pieces work and how to configure and troubleshoot them. Additionally, this book addresses design and scalability issues along with extensive deployment tips to help you roll out MPLS TE on your own network. Understand the background of TE and MPLS, and brush up on MPLS forwarding basics Learn about router information distribution and how to bring up MPLS TE tunnels in a network Understand MPLS TE's Constrained Shortest Path First (CSPF) and mechanisms you can use to influence CSPF's path calculation Use the Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) to implement Label-Switched Path setup Use various mechanisms to forward traffic down a tunnel Integrate MPLS into the IP quality of service (QoS) spectrum of services Utilize Fast Reroute (FRR) to mitigate packet loss associated with link and node failures Understand Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)-based measurement and accounting services that are available for MPLS Evaluate design scenarios for scalable MPLS TE deployments Manage MPLS TE networks by examining common configuration mistakes and utilizing tools for troubleshooting MPLS TE problems "Eric and Ajay work in the development group at Cisco that built Traffic Engineering. They are among those with the greatest hands-on experience with this application. This book is the product of their experience." -George Swallow, Cisco Systems, Architect for Traffic Engineering Co-Chair, IETF MPLS Working Group Eric Osborne, CCIE(r) #4122, has been doing Internet engineering of one sort or another since 1995.

However, QoS can be one of the most complex aspects of networking. The industry efforts to achieve convergence have generated a need for increased levels of traffic differentiation. Today’s networks need to meet an array of QoS requirements to support distinct applications (such as voice, video, and data) and multiple network services (such as IP, Ethernet, and ATM) on a single converged, multiservice network. QoS has therefore has become an integral part of network design, implementation, and operation. QoS for IP/MPLS Networks is a practical guide that will help you facilitate the design, deployment, and operation of QoS using Cisco® IOS® Software and Cisco IOS XR Software. The book provides a thorough explanation of the technology behind MPLS QoS and related technologies, including the different design options you can use to build an MPLS network with strict performance requirements. This book discusses MPLS Traffic Engineering (MPLS TE) as a tool to complement MPLS QoS and enhance the performance characteristics of the network. You’ll learn technology, configuration, and operational details, including the essentials facts about the behavior and configuration of the rich MPLS QoS and related MPLS TE functionality. To get the most out of this book, you should have a basic understanding of both IP and MPLS, including the basics of IP addressing and routing and the basics of MPLS forwarding.

Network routing can be broadly categorized into Internet routing, PSTN routing, and telecommunication transport network routing. This book systematically considers these routing paradigms, as well as their interoperability. The authors discuss how algorithms, protocols, analysis, and operational deployment impact these approaches. A unique feature of the book is consideration of both macro-state and micro-state in routing; that is, how routing is accomplished at the level of networks and how routers or switches are designed to enable efficient routing. In reading this book, one will learn about 1) the evolution of network routing, 2) the role of IP and E.164 addressing in routing, 3) the impact on router and switching architectures and their design, 4) deployment of network routing protocols, 5) the role of traffic engineering in routing, and 6) lessons learned from implementation and operational experience. This book explores the strengths and weaknesses that should be considered during deployment of future routing schemes as well as actual implementation of these schemes. It allows the reader to understand how different routing strategies work and are employed and the connection between them. This is accomplished in part by the authors' use of numerous real-world examples to bring the material alive. Bridges the gap between theory and practice in network routing, including the fine points of implementation and operational experience Routing in a multitude of technologies discussed in practical detail, including, IP/MPLS, PSTN, and optical networking Routing protocols such as OSPF, IS-IS, BGP presented in detail A detailed coverage of various router and switch architectures A comprehensive discussion about algorithms on IP-lookup and packet classification Accessible to a wide audience due to its vendor-neutral approach

This workshop on “Protocols for High-Speed Networks” is the seventh in a s- cessful series of international workshops, well known for their small and focused target audience, that provide a sound basis for intensive discussions of hi- qualityand timelyresearch work. The location of the workshop has alternated between Europe and the United States, at venues not onlyworth visiting for the workshop, but also for the distinct impressions theyleave on the participants. The ?rst workshop was held in 1989 in Zurich. Subsequentlythe workshop was moved to Palo Alto (1990), Stockholm (1993), Vancouver (1994), Sophia-Antipolis/Nice (1996), and Salem (1999). In 2002, the workshop was hosted in Berlin, the capital of Germany. PfHSN is a workshop providing an international forum that focuses on issues related to high-speed networking, such as protocols, implementation techniques, router design, network processors and the like. Although the topics have shifted during the last couple of years, for example, from parallel protocol implemen- tions to network processors, it could be observed that high speed remains a very important issue with respect to future networking. Traditionally, PfHSN is a r- ativelyfocused and small workshop with an audience of about 60 participants.

Metro Service Providers are increasingly turning to Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) to converge disparate networks and services into a unified core, maintain quality, and deliver additional value-added capabilities. MPLS for Metropolitan Area Networks addresses service providers' challenges by demonstrating solutions provided by MPLS features such as traffic engineering (TE), fast reroute, VPNs, virtual private LAN services (VPLS), and QoS. The text opens with an overview of metro networks and MPLS, describing business opportunities and challenges and how mission-critical applications can be deployed within Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs). It then examines traffic engineering issues, focusing on fundamental TE concepts, network control, trunk attributes, constraint-based routing (CBR), Resource Reservation Protocol with TE extensions (RSVP-TE), and resource optimization. Following a discussion on how MPLS can bring increased reliability to MANs, the author then concludes the book with a detailed analysis of the service aspect of MANs. Topics reviewed include L3 and L2 MPLS VPNs, geographically dispersed Ethernet multipoint services, virtual private LAN services (VPLS), and the integrated services (IntServ) and differentiated services (DiffServ) QoS models with respect to MPLS. The entire book adopts a simplify-and-exemplify approach, containing a series of real-life case studies and using representative topologies as a basis for illustrating the concepts discussed in each chapter. This learning-by-example approach helps you to remember and understand the complex MPLS concepts and technologies. You can then apply what you have learned from these examples and scenarios to your specific networking environments.
