The authoritative guide to MPLS, now in its Third edition, fully updated with brand new material!
MPLS is now considered the networking technology for carrying all types of network traffic, including voice telephony, real-time video, and data traffic. In MPLS-Enabled Applications, Third Edition, the authors methodically show how MPLS holds the key to network convergence by allowing operators to offer more services over a single physical infrastructure. The Third Edition contains more than 170 illustrations, new chapters, and more coverage, guiding the reader from the basics of the technology, though all its major VPN applications.
MPLS Enabled-Applications contains up-to-date coverage of:
MPLS-Enabled Applicationswill provide those involved in the design and deployment of MPLS systems, as well as those researching the area of MPLS networks, with a thoroughly modern view of how MPLS is transforming the networking world.
"Essential new material for those trying to understand the next steps in MPLS."
—Adrian Farrel, IETF Routing Area Director
"MPLS-Enabled Applications takes a unique and creative approach in explaining MPLS concepts and how they are applied in practice to meet the needs of Enterprise and Service Provider networks. I consistently recommend this book to colleagues in the engineering, education and business community."
—Dave Cooper, Chief IP Technologist, Global Crossing Ltd.

I found this book very well written.
Its focus on why a protocol was developed and how it works rather than how to configure it was refreshing.
Bought it for Kindle but Kindle is not at all good to read technical books. Just bought Ipad, selling Kindle.Published 13 months ago by Suhas Bagul
