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."
