A guide to designing and implementing VPLS services over an IP/MPLS switched service provider backbone

Today's communication providers are looking for convenience, simplicity, and flexible bandwidth across wide area networks-but with the quality of service and control that is critical for business networking applications like video, voice and data. Carrier Ethernet VPN services based on VPLS makes this a reality. Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) is a pseudowire (PW) based, multipoint-to-multipoint layer 2 Ethernet VPN service provided by services providers By deploying a VPLS service to customers, the operator can focus on providing high throughput, highly available Ethernet bridging services and leave the layer 3 routing decision up to the customer.

Virtual Private LAN Services (VPLS) is quickly becoming the number one choice for many enterprises and service providers to deploy data communication networks. Alcatel-Lucent VPLS solution enables service providers to offer enterprise customers the operational cost benefits of Ethernet with the predictable QoS characteristics of MPLS.

  • Explains how Alcatel-Lucent VPLS solution allows operational cost benefits of Ethernet with the characteristics of MPLS
  • Discusses the new service-oriented MPLS technology, such as RSVP-TE, Fast Reroute, Secondary LSP, etc
  • Reviews the IP/MPLS VPN Service Architecture-pseudowire based Layer 2 VPN services
  • Addresses the Ethernet Layer 2 VPN services-Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) and Virtual Leased Line (VLL)
  • Covers Advanced Layer 2 VPN topics-Service Resiliency, BGP Auto-discovery for VPLS, Provider Backbone Bridging (PBB) for VPLS, and OAM for VPLS

Keywords: VPLS, virtual private network technology, VPN technology, Multi Protocol Label Switching, MPLS, Alcatel-Lucent, Alcatel Lucent, VPLS over MPLS, Service Routing, Service Routers
