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."
