An overview of multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) architecture and configuration, as well as MPLS based virtual private networks (VPNs). Topics include frame- and cell-mode MPLS operation, running frame-mode MPLS across switched WAN media, VPN implementation options, architecture operation, provider edge to customer edge connectivity options, advanced topologies, guidelines for MPLS/VPN deployment, and an IP tunneling to MPLS/VPN migration case study.Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR
Multiprotocol Label switching (MPLS) is a technique for high performance package forwarding. The most widely deployed usage of MPLS is the enabling of Virtual Private Networks (VPNs). This text provides a self-study complement to the Cisco CCIP training course implementing Cisco MPLS.
