Service providers and enterprise customers are faced with the need to deliver different services over a common infrastructure so that they don't interfere among each other. This can be achieved through the use of Multiservice Switching Networks. Cisco Multiservice Switching Networks sheds light on the general architecture of MSS and presents the cases of MPLS, PNNI and both protocols running independently in MSS networks. This aids design, deployment and troubleshooting of networks that use BPX/IGX/MGX families of MS Switches. Cisco Multiservice Switching Networks covers the architecture of multiservice switches in which one or more controllers are attached to the 'controlled switch' acting like 'ships in the night'. Specific details about MPLS and PNNI implementations are discussed, finishing with a complete MSS case more

About Carlos Pignataro

Carlos Pignataro, CCIE(r) certified No. 4619, is a senior engineer in the Escalation Team for Cisco Systems, Inc., responsible for handling difficult and complex escalations, working on critical or stalled defects, as well as providing input on and testing new products and developments and helping improve their reliability, avail-ability, and serviceability. Carlos has a BS and MS in electronic engineering and is an active speaker at Networkers conventions.Ross Kazemi, CCIE(r) certified No. 2742, is a senior engineer in the System Test Team for Cisco Systems, Inc., responsible for developing and executing test cases that simulate QoS usage in a large SP MPLS/VPN network. Prior to this job, he worked as an escalation engineer dealing with networks that used MPLS over Cisco ATM switches, and as a consultant engineer for the Cisco LECs. He teaches internal Cisco classes to Cisco support engineers and has a BS in electrical engineering.Bil Dry, CCIE(r) certified No. 4191, manages one of the Cisco Advanced Services teams that offers design consulting, escalation support, and best practice recommendations to service provider packet telephony customers. His work in wide area IP and ATM networks helped him achieve double CCIE status in Routing and Switching and WAN Switching. Bil has a BS in electrical engineering and speaks on "Troubleshooting WAN Protocols" at Networkers more
