Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) provides the mechanisms to perform label switching, which is an innovative technique for high-performance packet forwarding. This book provides an in-depth study of MPLS technology, including MPLS theory and configuration, network design issues, and case studies. The MPLS/VPN architecture and all of its mechanisms are explained with configuration examples and suggested deployment guidelines. MPLS and VPNs provides the first in-depth discussion particular to Ciscos MPLS architecture. Multiprotocol Label Switching and Virtual Private Networks covers MPLS theory and configuration, network design issues, and case studies as well as one major MPLS application: MPLS-based VPNs. The MPLS/VPN architecture and all of its mechanisms are explained with configuration examples, suggested design and deployment guidelines, and extensive case studies.
