A resource reference for network architects and designers whoneed to design and deploy the ever-increasing range of technologiesthat use BGP as the control-plane.
Versatile Routing and Services with BGP presents how you canoptimize your BGP implementation to provide fast reconvergence andhigh availability, how to increase tolerance to errors, andconcludes with a look at what the future has in store for BGP. Itcovers the implementation of base services such as IP-VPN, VPLS,and VPWS, as well as advanced services such asMulticast/Multicast-VPN, IPv6, and enhanced security functions tohelp protect the network edge.
"I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who needs towork with BGP on a daily basis, or who is looking for an all-in-oneguide to contemporary BGP."
iLya Varlashkin Principal Engineer, Easynet GlobalServices
"More than a beginner's guide to BGP, this book explores thefull range of BGP- enabled technologies that can be deployed onAlcatel-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 thelast decade to support the latest network and service requirementsIt is a very useful book for network engineers."
Bruno Decraene Senior Network Architect, Orange
"...this book serves as a great reference for optimizing networkperformance and improving customer experience by demonstrating anumber of capabilities of the Alcatel-Lucent 7750 for dynamicservice provisioning, fast service restoration, high availability,PE resource optimization and network capacity optimization."
