Présentation de l'éditeur
A robust Border Gateway Protocol setup is vital to ensuring reliable connectivity, an essential capability for any organization. The Internet has become a necessary, always-on service in homes and businesses, and BGP is the protocol that keeps communication flowing. But BGP also has become crucial to delivery of intra-domain business services. But the network is only as reliable as BGP, so service enablement depends upon making BGP more stable, reliable, and service-rich.
Alcatel-Lucent Service Router Operating System is engineered to bear the load of the most demanding networks. The system features support for Symmetric Multiprocessing and unprecedented depth of advanced routing features, all within a single OS that's supported across the entire Alcatel-Lucent IP/MPLS router portfolio. Versatile Routing and Services with BGP provides guidance toward implementation of BGP within SR-OS, and details the use and control of each feature. The book provides in-depth coverage of topics such as:
- BGP/MPLS IP-VPN, VPLS, VPWS
- Labeled Unicast IPv4, reconvergence, and multicast
- Security, graceful restart and error handling
- IPv6 PE (6PE) and IPv6 extensions to BGP/MPLS IP-VPN
- A look at forthcoming features such as Ethernet VPN
Basic BGP competency is assumed, but the book is accessible even to those with zero familiarity with Alcatel-Lucent's SR-OS. It underscores the idea that BGP is more than just service enablement, and can also be used for infrastructure layer transport - but both layers must be solid, scalable, and able to quickly reconverge. Versatile Routing and Services with BGP demonstrates the creation of a robust BGP control plane within a, secure network, allowing the delivery of flawless, uninterrupted service.
Quatrième de couverture
A resource reference for network architects and designers who need to design and deploy the ever–increasing range of technologies that use BGP as the control–plane.
Versatile Routing and Services with BGP presents how you can optimize your BGP implementation to provide fast reconvergence and high availability, how to increase tolerance to errors, and concludes with a look at what the future has in store for BGP. It covers the implementation of base services such as IP–VPN, VPLS, and VPWS, as well as advanced services such as Multicast/Multicast–VPN, IPv6, and enhanced security functions to help protect the network edge.
"I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who needs to work with BGP on a daily basis, or who is looking for an all–in–one guide to contemporary BGP."
iLya Varlashkin Principal Engineer, Easynet Global Services
"More than a beginner′s guide to BGP, this book explores the full range of BGP– enabled technologies that can be deployed on Alcatel–Lucent SR–OS networks with lots of example configurations it is a valuable addition to my reference shelf."
Chris Chaundy Senior ISP IP Engineer, Nextgen Group
"This book presents the new BGP features introduced over the last decade to support the latest network and service requirements It is a very useful book for network engineers."
Bruno Decraene Senior Network Architect, Orange
"...this book serves as a great reference for optimizing network performance and improving customer experience by demonstrating a number of capabilities of the Alcatel–Lucent 7750 for dynamic service provisioning, fast service restoration, high availability, PE resource optimization and network capacity optimization."
