Get your copy of the new O'Reilly book "MPLS in the SDN Era"

‎01-25-2016 02:45 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, www.ipSpace.net

 

One of our early readers, Chinar Trivedi, shared his reading experience in our blog.

Hello Steve, the authors ran a blog mplsinthesdnera.net that had config files for scenarios discussed throughout the book.  The blog is not available anymore.  Any idea how to get those files?  Thx Saud

Yes, looks like the domain expired and the hosting is offline.

 

O'reilly does not have the files posted either.

 

Perhaps Juniper has a copy they can post.

I hope someone can post the config files here. I have also emailed the authors of the book at mplsinthesdnera@gmail.com. I am hoping they will see it soon and respond.  Thx, Saud

Hi sshaikh, check with your local Juniper partner if they can arrange the book for you at some discount.

Hello msheikoh, I have the book.  I am looking for the config files related to the book.  The authors maintained a website 'mplsinthesdnera.net' that offered all configs related to the content covered in the book.  The website is no longer accessible.
