During the 2016 MPLS WC conference in Paris, FR this past week we gave a demonstration of the Northstar TE ControllerTM learning, controlling and creating SPRING based Traffic Engineering LSPs across a Juniper Network. The Network consisted of seven Juniper vMX routers running ISIS and BGP.
The demonstration highlighted several pieces of technology and a number of Northstar’s existing applications such as:
Dynamic learning of SPRING Adjacency and Node SIDs via ISIS
Display of per Link Adjacency SIDs
Creation of SPRING TE LSPs via the Path Computation Protocol(PCEP)
Creation of diverse pairs of SPRING TE LSPs from different ingress routers using SRLG exclusion via the PCEP
