A whole consultant to realizing, designing, and deploying Layer 2 VPN applied sciences and pseudowire emulation applications
- evaluation marketplace drivers for Layer 2 VPNs comprehend the architectural frame-work and offerings for Layer 2 VPNs, together with AToM and L2TPv3 take hold of the necessities of Layer 2 LAN and WAN applied sciences learn the theoretical and operational information of MPLS and LDP as they pertain to AToM comprehend the theoretical and operational information of Layer 2 protocols over L2TPv3 in IP networks find out about Layer 2 VPN bridged and routed interworking and Layer 2 neighborhood switching comprehend the operation and alertness of digital deepest LAN companies (VPLS) find out about starting place and complicated AToM and L2TPv3 themes via an in depth selection of case studies
The historic disconnect among legacy Layer 2 and Layer three VPN strategies has compelled provider prone to construct, function, and hold separate infrastructures to house a variety of VPN entry applied sciences. This expensive proposition, even though, is not any longer valuable. As a part of its new Unified VPN Suite, Cisco structures® now bargains next-generation Layer 2 VPN companies like Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol model three (L2TPv3) and Any shipping over MPLS (AToM) that allow carrier prone to supply body Relay, ATM, Ethernet, and leased-line prone over a typical IP/MPLS center community. via unifying a number of community layers and offering an built-in set of software program providers and administration instruments over this infrastructure, the Cisco® Layer 2 VPN answer allows verified vendors, IP-oriented ISP/CLECs, and massive firm shoppers (LECs) to arrive a broader set of strength VPN buyers and provide actually international VPNs.
Layer 2 VPN Architectures is a accomplished advisor to consolidating community infrastructures and increasing VPN providers. The booklet opens via discussing Layer 2 VPN purposes using either AToM and L2TPv3 protocols and evaluating Layer three as opposed to Layer 2 provider-provisioned VPNs. as well as describing the thoughts on the topic of Layer 2 VPNs, this e-book presents an in depth choice of case reviews that convey you the way those applied sciences and architectures paintings. The case stories contain either AToM and L2TPv3 and exhibit real-world merchant and firm layout difficulties and suggestions with hands-on configuration examples and implementation info. The case experiences contain all Layer 2 applied sciences transported utilizing AToM and L2TPv3 pseudowires, together with Ethernet, Ethernet VLAN, HDLC, PPP, body Relay, ATM AAL5 and ATM cells, and complex issues proper to Layer 2 VPN deployment, resembling QoS and scalability.
