Deploy MPLS VPNs successfully in broadband networks with Building MPLS-Based Broadband Access VPNs. This book helps you understand why and how today's broadband networks function, covering the principal access technologies: DSL, Ethernet, and cable. The book also examines the different tunneling protocols used for VPN solutions today, namely GRE, IPSec, and L2TP, with examples of how these solutions are deployed and a discussion of their strengths and weaknesses.
Building MPLS-Based Broadband Access VPNs also includes an in-depth description of the IOS VRF Lite, which helps you use VRF-aware features with an IP core.
Detailed descriptions of the technologies, design principles, network configurations, and case studies are provided throughout the book, helping you develop a pragmatic understanding of MPLS-based broadband access VPNs.
