"<p>Implement the design principles and configurations behind MPLS-based VPNs for broadband access networks</p><p>The book discusses how MPLS and its VPN service are best used in a broadband environment, concentrating on key design issues and solutions, including</p><ul><li>How to manage tens of thousands of interfaces and host routes and hundreds of dynamic VPNs</li><li>When a Virtual Home Gateway is necessary</li><li>Why use dynamic address assignment</li><li>How routes should be summarized into the core</li></ul><p>Deploy MPLS VPNs successfully in broadband networks with <I>Building MPLS-Based Broadband Access VPNs</I>. 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.</p><p><I>Building MPLS-Based Broadband Access VPNs</I> also includes an in-depth description of the IOS VRF Lite, which helps you use VRF-aware features with an IP core.</p> <p>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.</p><ul><li>Obtain a realistic understanding of large-scale broadband access network design requirements</li><li>Recognize the business impact of using MPLS to provide access VPN services, including the advantages of QoS, availability, and provisioning</li><li>Use MPLS in access VPN and transport networks and deal with the unique scalability problems that such networks pose</li><li>Leverage VRF-aware features to deploy IP-based VPNs</li><li>Includes detailed Cisco IOS configuration examples based on real-world scenarios</li></ul><p>This book is part of the Networking Technology Series from Cisco Press, which offers networking professionals valuable information for constructing efficient networks, understanding new technologies, and building successful careers.</p>"show more
