NANOG Meeting Presentation Abstract

Tutorial: Introduction to MPLS
Meeting: NANOG19
Date / Time: 2000-06-11 1:30pm - 5:00pm
Room: Pavilion I-III
Presenters: Speakers:
Jeff Doyle, Juniper.
Chris Summers, Juniper Networks.
Abstract: A half-day, interactive tutorial that discusses and demonstrates the interaction between MPLS and the traditional IP routing protocols. The tutorial begins by examining the general requirements for traffic engineering and then presents how specific features of MPLS address these requirements. The tutorial then proceeds to address how advanced features of MPLS work in conjunction with BGP and the IGP (IS-IS or OSPF) to control network traffic.

During the tutorial, the presenters will augment the lecture material by demonstrating various MPLS features including the signaling of LSPs with RSVP, mapping routes to LSPs, configuring LSPs for transit and local traffic, and enabling advanced traffic protection features.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Signaling LSPs with RSVP

  • Constraint-based traffic engineering

  • Extensions to IS-IS and OSPF

  • Traffic Engineering Database

  • Strict and loose routing

  • Administrative groups (a.k.a. Colors)

  • Hot-standby and Fast Reroute LSPs

  • Applications and advanced features
