Book Description

19 Dec 2001 0120884224 978-0120884223
The last two years have seen significant developments in the standardization of GMPLS and its implementation in optical and other networks. GMPLS: Architecture and Applications brings you completely up to date, providing the practical information you need to put the growing set of GMPLS-supported services to work and manage them effectively. This book begins by defining GMPLS's place in a transport network, leveraging your knowledge of MPLS to give you an understanding of this radically new control plane technology. An overview of GMPLS protocols follows, but the real focus is on what comes afterwards: in-depth examinations of the architectures underpinning GMPLS in real-world network environments and current and emerging GMPLS applications. This one-of-a-kind resource delivers immensely useful information for software architects, designers and programmers, hardware developers, system testers, and network operators-and also for managers and other decision-makers.

Product Description


"This is a strong author team and they have produced a much-needed and timely book" --Bruce Davie, Cisco Fellow "GMPLS technology provides a keystone for next generation integrated optical networks, and this book is the one-stop reference on the subject." --Kireeti Kompella, Juniper Networks and CCAMP working group co-chair

About the Author

Adrian Farrel has nearly two decades of experience designing and developing portable communications software. As MPLS Architect and Development Manager at Data Connection Ltd. he led a team that produced a carrier-class MPLS implementation for customers in the router space. As Director of Protocol Development for Movaz Networks, Inc. he helped build a cutting-edge system that integrated many IP-based protocols to control and manage optical switches. Adrian is active within the IETF, where he is co-chair of the CCAMP working group responsible for GMPLS. He has co-authored and contributed to numerous Internet Drafts and RFCs on MPLS, GMPLS, and related technologies. He was a founding board member of the MPLS Forum, frequently speaks at conferences, and is the author of several white papers on GMPLS.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great review of GMPLS 12 Dec 2009
By Brad Hutchins - Published on
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars because of its age. 2006, and its nearly 2010. With advancement in this protocol and the advent of GMPLS/GELS for ethernet control plane for Carrier Ethernet this books screams for a 2nd edition (even if in PDF format only). And perhaps a chapter giving a run down of GMPLS implementations by major vendors. Both those that supply network nodes and a control server, and those that build the control plane server only (like Soap Stone until Extreme Networks bought them).

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read on GMPLS 10 Dec 2007
By GM - Published on
A comprehensive book providing clear and detailed view on all the aspects of GMPLS and related protocols. Instead of of reading a bunch of rfc(s) start reading this book first and let rfc(s) for a second step. You will get the whole picture well explained in all its components and relations.
Really well written and easy to follow with all the concepts explained in a simple but precise way.
5.0 out of 5 stars Provides good understanding of GMPLS 19 Aug 2008

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been doing research in control planes for transport networks and needed to learn about GMPLS. This book does a very good job at explaining what GMPLS is, the set of protocols it involves and how each one works, including sequence diagrams for some of less known ones (to me) such as LMP. There are enough network diagrams associated with examples to give you a clear picture of what's going on. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in learning about GMPLS. If more in-depth information is required, you can always go look at the RFCs.
