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.
