Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is now a widely deployed technology, which addresses a variety of issues, including traffic engineering, Quality of Service, Virtual Private Networks, and IP/ATM integration. MPLS: Technology and Applications is the first book that provides a detailed analysis of the architecture, protocols, and application of MPLS.
Written by experts who personally authored key parts of the standard, this book will enable network operators and designers to determine which aspects of networks would benefit from MPLS. It is also a definitive reference for engineers implementing MPLS-based products.

" Written by two of the foremost experts on the subject who illustrate concepts with practical examples of their application. The most authoritative text on MPLS. Highly Recommended! -Daniel Awduche Distinguished Technical Member UUNET (MCI Worldcom) 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. Â 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. Â Eric Dean, Senior Director, Internetwork Engineering, Global One
