"Cisco BGP-4 Command and Configuration Handbook is a clear, concise, and complete source of documentation for all Cisco IOS Software BGP-4 commands. If you are preparing for the CCIE written and lab exams, this book can be used as a laboratory guide to learn the purpose and proper use of every BGP command. If you are a network designer, this book can be used as a ready reference for any BGP command." "Cisco BGP-4 Command and Configuration Handbook provides example scenarios that demonstrate the proper use of every BGP-4 command, which can be implemented using a minimum number of routers. This will enable you to learn each command without requiring an extensive and expensive lab configuration. The scenarios are presented so that the purpose and use of each command can be demonstrated without clouding the issue. Some of the examples lead you into common non-working situations in order to reinforce the understanding of the operation of the particular BGP command."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Design, configure, and manage MPLS TE to optimize network performance Almost every busy network backbone has some congested links while others remain underutilized. That's because shortest-path routing protocols send traffic down the path that is shortest without considering other network parameters, such as utilization and traffic demands. Using Traffic Engineering (TE), network operators can redistribute packet flows to attain more uniform distribution across all links. Forcing traffic onto specific pathways allows you to get the most out of your existing network capacity while making it easier to deliver consistent service levels to customers at the same time. Cisco(r) Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) lends efficiency to very large networks, and is the most effective way to implement TE. MPLS TE routes traffic flows across the network by aligning resources required by a given flow with actual backbone capacity and topology. This constraint-based routing approach feeds the network route traffic down one or more pathways, preventing unexpected congestion and enabling recovery from link or node failures. Traffic Engineering with MPLS provides you with information on how to use MPLS TE and associated features to maximize network bandwidth. This book focuses on real-world applications, from design scenarios to feature configurations to tools that can be used in managing and troubleshooting MPLS TE. Assuming some familiarity with basic label operations, this guide focuses mainly on the operational aspects of MPLS TE-how the various pieces work and how to configure and troubleshoot them. Additionally, this book addresses design and scalability issues along with extensive deployment tips to help you roll out MPLS TE on your own network. Understand the background of TE and MPLS, and brush up on MPLS forwarding basics Learn about router information distribution and how to bring up MPLS TE tunnels in a network Understand MPLS TE's Constrained Shortest Path First (CSPF) and mechanisms you can use to influence CSPF's path calculation Use the Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) to implement Label-Switched Path setup Use various mechanisms to forward traffic down a tunnel Integrate MPLS into the IP quality of service (QoS) spectrum of services Utilize Fast Reroute (FRR) to mitigate packet loss associated with link and node failures Understand Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)-based measurement and accounting services that are available for MPLS Evaluate design scenarios for scalable MPLS TE deployments Manage MPLS TE networks by examining common configuration mistakes and utilizing tools for troubleshooting MPLS TE problems "Eric and Ajay work in the development group at Cisco that built Traffic Engineering.

Increasing numbers of ISPs have begun implementing multicast infrastructure. Soon the Internet will provide multicast connectivity between any two points on the Internet the way it provides for unicast traffic today. Long-evolving protocols are reaching maturity, and enterprise networks and ISPs around the world are ramping up their multicast infrastructure. Now, more than ever, network engineers must be ready to deal with new applications that capitalize on the simultaneous, efficient delivery of data and imagery to multiple recipients. "Interdomain Multicast Routing" is the key to unlocking the complexities of this growing technology. Starting with a summary of the technology and its relevant protocols, this book shows readers the big picture before revealing a detailed analysis of important protocols and the way they work with one another. Throughout, the authors focus on both Cisco Systems and Juniper Networks technology--the two leading vendors of routers and routing technology. Real-life examples are used to clearly illustrate key concepts. Specific topics covered in " Interdomain Multicast Routing " include: Background and in-depth analyses of multicast routing using PIM-SM and MSDPComparison of Any-Source and Source-Specific multicast delivery modelsExplanation of how MBGP and M-ISIS can be used side by side to build a dedicated multicast environmentA detailed breakdown of the differences between IGMP versions 1, 2, and 3A step-by-step guide to understanding the MSDP RPF-peer selection rulesLists of packet formats for IGMP, PIM, and MSDPA complete glossary that clarifies important terms and acronyms and provides their definitions Practical and thorough in coverage, "Interdomain Multicast Routing" is an important addition to any network engineer's bookshelf. 0201746123B04022002

This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version. Learn practical guidelines for designing and deploying a scalable BGP routing architecture Up-to-date coverage of BGP features like performance tuning, multiprotocol BGP, MPLS VPN, and multicast BGP In-depth coverage of advanced BGP topics to help design a complex BGP routing architecture Practical design tips that have been proven in the field Extensive configuration examples and case studies BGP Design and Implementation focuses on real-world problems and provides not only design solutions, but also the background on why they are appropriate and a practical overview of how they apply into a top-down design. The BGP protocol is being used in both service provider and enterprise networks. The design goals of these two groups are different, leading to different architectures being used in each environment. The title breaks out the separate goals, and resulting solutions for each group to assist the reader in further understanding different solution strategies. This book starts by identifying key features and functionality in BGP. It then delves into the topics of performance tuning, routing policy development, and architectural scalability. It progresses by examining the challenges for both the service provider and enterprise customers, and provides practical guidelines and a design framework for each. BGP Design and Implementation finishes up by closely looking at the more recent extensions to BGP through Multi-Protocol BGP for MPLS-VPN, IP Multicast, IPv6, and CLNS. Each chapter is generally organized into the following sections: Introduction, Design and Implementation Guidelines, Case Studies, and Summary.
