Meeting: NANOG22

Jeremy Brayley, Laurel Networks

Jeremy Brayley, Senior Product Manager with Laurel Networks, has nearly a decade of experience in IP and optical transport. Prior to joining Laurel, Jeremy held positions with FORE and Cisco Systems, where he was responsible for IP and optical transport network design for service providers and large financial institutions.
Abstract: MPLS has been viewed as an IP traffic engineering technology, yet it has another, more compelling application as a multi-service transport medium. This presentation will focus on how a service provider can offer layer 2 switched services, such as long-haul Ethernet, frame relay, and ATM, on an IP/MPLS network. It will explain one method of using LDP-DU (Label Distribution Protocol running in Downstream Unsolicited mode) as a signaling protocol to provision these services over traffic-engineered MPLS tunnels, and how a service provider can match the characteristics and SLAs of these services as they are offered on a switched network.
