‎01-25-2016 02:10 AM

The new MPLS in the SDN Era book is already shipping! We just received the first copies last week.


This book's focus is interoperability. Its 900+ pages cover a wide range of MPLS technologies, illustrated with  real interoperable scenarios that combine Junos and IOS XR devices.


“In case you’re wondering how one could integrate the traditional protocol-focused world of MPLS with the new software-defined world, you came to the right place. This book has the potential to become the MPLS Bible 2.0.”

Ivan Pepelnjak, iNetwork Architect,
