MPLS: Next Steps: Volume 1
The proposed book is a best-of-the-best collection of existing content from several books MK has published in recent years on MPLS technology (multi-label protocol switching). Individual chapters on MPLS technology are derived from a handful of MK books and are combined in one new volume in a way that makes sense as a reference work for those interested in new and developing aspects of this technology, i.e., network operators and designers who need to determine which aspects of their networks would benefit from MPLS technology and applications. It also serves as a definitive reference for engineers implementing MPLS-based products.
This book represents a quick and efficient way to bring valuable content together from leading experts in the field while creating a one-stop-shopping opportunity for customers to receive the information they would otherwise need to round up from separate sources. Suitable and current content will be collected from the following titles: Evans, Deploying IP and MPLS QoS (2006); Farrel, GMPLS (2005); Ash, Traffic Engineering (2006); Vasseur, Network Recovery (2005); Farrel, The Internet and Its Protocols (2004); Nadeau, MPLS Management (2003); and Davie, MPLS Technology and Applications (2000). These chapters will be updated where necessary and two new chapters will be added at the beginning and the end of the book to bring the content into focus and discuss next generation developments.

"At last a comprehensive presentation of MPLS reflecting its development and usage, this book is a MUST for any Network Engineering Manager contemplating the deployment of MPLS."
-Monique Jeanne Morrow IP Engineering Manager Swisscom AG
"Davie and Rekhter provide a detailed and unbiased chronology of the evolution of MPLS. Their scientific approach to decomposing various protocols into their fundamental elements is interwoven with a more pragmatic compilation of diagrams, typical networking scenarios, and applications. Provides a solid knowledge base for researchers and operators dedicated to MPLS and its future."
-Eric Dean Senior Director, Internetwork Engineering Global One
