A complete configuration manual for MPLS, MPLS VPNs, MPLS TE, QoS, Any Transport over MPLS (AToM), and VPLS 

  • Understand the crucial Cisco commands for various MPLS scenarios
  • Understand fundamentals of MPLS operation and learn to configure basic MPLS in Frame Relay and ATM-based environments
  • Master fundamentals of MPLS VPN operation including Multiprotocol BGP (MBGP) operation, VPNv4 route exchange, and basic MPLS VPN configuration in the provider network
  • Understand and configure various PE-CE routing protocols in MPLS VPN networks
  • Understand MPLS VPN provisioning in an Inter-provider VPN (Inter-AS) and Carrier Supporting Carrier (CSC) environment
  • Learn MPLS TE and its advanced features
  • Examine AToM with configuration examples for like-to-like and any-to-any L2 VPN implementations and VPLS components and operation, VPLS configuration and verification, and VPLS topologies
  • Learn about MPLS QoS, including configuration and implementation of uniform and short pipe modes

MPLS Configuration on Cisco IOS Software is a complete and detailed resource to the configuration of Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) networks and associated features. Through its practical, hands-on approach, you’ll become familiar with MPLS technologies and their configurations using Cisco IOS® Software.

 

MPLS Configuration on Cisco IOS Software covers basic-to-advanced MPLS concepts and configuration. Beyond its emphasis on MPLS, you’ll learn about applications and deployments associated with MPLS, such as traffic engineering (TE), Layer 2 virtual private networks (VPN), and Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS). You’ll receive practical guidance and deployment scenarios that can be enhanced by re-creation of the setups and configurations demonstrated within this book.

 

You’ll move quickly from a brief overview of MPLS technology and basic MPLS configuration on Cisco® routers to more advanced topics. Several chapters provide instruction on VPN connectivity options, including implementing Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) in MPLS VPNs. You’ll receive configuration guidelines for advanced MPLS implementations such as MPLS TE, quality of service (QoS), and extranet VPNs. You’ll learn about implementation of Layer 2 VPNs versus Layer 3 VPNs with Cisco Any Transport over MPLS (AToM). And you’ll see demonstrations of implementing VPLS on Cisco routers complete with the configurations and platform support.

 

“I highly recommend MPLS Configuration on Cisco IOS Software as required reading for those in search of practical guidance of the technology and nuances of configuring MPLS for next-generation networks for voice, video, data, and application service offerings across a wide variety of deployment scenarios.”

—Carlos Dominguez, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Service Provider Operations, Cisco Systems®

1.0 out of 5 stars MPLS configuration on Cisco IOS April 17 2008
By Kidnice_1 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I am getting a little sick and tired of dealing with Cisco press. Every book I own is so filled with errors it makes understanding concepts difficult. How hard is it to make sure your diagram is correct.

I am reading about Inter-provider VPN, is it too much to ask that your explanation match the diagram you are referring to! I mean, AS numbers are inaccurate, the diagram is mislabeled all over the place and none of it makes sense.

Every time I submit an error Cisco never even bothers to acknowledge me much less actually make the correction. I have 3 MPLS books from Cisco that I have submitted errors for months ago and still no correction!

By the way Cisco your books aren't cheap! The least you could do is have the decency to provide correct error free information.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mistakes are overwhelming Jan. 15 2009
By Ahamed M. Sadayan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The scenarios covered in this book are amazing. But it is really tedious to follow the book some time. There are lots and lots of mistakes. Mistake from the network AS numbers, Label numbers and it grows and grows. You should know the topic to understand the mistakes in first place.

I would suggest this book only if the mistakes are corrected.
I would give 4 stars if there are no mistakes.

2.0 out of 5 stars If it wasn't for all the mistakes Aug. 25 2008
By David Wilkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The topics and detail in this book are wonderful. There is only one catch - the mistakes in this book are absolutely horrendous! When going through the details of the book, the reader must be cognizant of that which the author 'meant' to put there. I find it absolutely hard to believe that this book made it past any editors at all.

I am using this book to study for my CCIE Service Provider lab exam. I find it somewhat manageable to figure out what should be in the examples and diagrams only because of previous experience. But, if you are new to BGP and MPLS, do NOT use this book as it will probably create quite a bit of frustration and confusion.

Wait until all the mistakes have been corrected in a new volume. I really feel if the mistakes are corrected, this could be the best MPLS book for Cisco out there.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent reference guide Feb. 27 2008
By Tedd Kelley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is the first MPLS book I have bought (have more than a couple) that is devoted to the actual configs to make MPLS work. Most of my other texts gloss over the nuts and bolts.
