MPLS and VPN Architectures, Volume II Reviews
Great buy. Buy it
Ivan Pepeljnack is a well known network guru in the world, his speciality is MPLS and this book helps you to master the MPLS VPN solutions to design,deploy and troubleshoot your network.
Today I have done my 642-611 MPLS Exam. Before that, I studied the MPLS and VPN architectures. Latter, I decided to buy also the CCIP edition to study any new topic not covered by the previous edition. What have been my surprise when taking the exam and seeing several topics not covered by the CCIP edition (as EIGRP, detailed description of the LDP/TDP protocol operation and so on). I think that the way in what that book has been written, is quite confused. It is not a good starting book for the MPLS and VPN topic. I am aware that the book covers in depth several topics not related with the exam (no question at all about RR and Confederation, inter AS routing and so on) that are quite good when working with MPLS/VPN technology, but I must say that the book is not as good when trying to prepare your CCIP exam.
I read this book in preparation for my Cisco MPLS exam, on my way to becoming a CCIP. I bought the 2 volumes. After reading the first one, I decided not to go ahead with the second. I work for a giant service provider, which is a fortune 500 company as well. I specifically work at the core network level. The core network transitioning from legacy SDH towards a pure IP/MPLS solution meant for me a fundamental understanding of MPLS.
Ivan and Jim did a splendid job. I haven't read such a well-written book in a long time. It is perfect for not only the people who are looking for a thorough understanding of MPLS, but also the begginers who know nothing about it. All the concepts are explained in great detail, and the language is so smooth, it makes the reading an enjoyment. Since the book is mainly focused on MPLS, you will need a good understanding of how BGP works before start reading this book (such as BGP synchronization and how to get aroung it). I am sure you will like this book.
I have been looking for a good book on MPLS. This book covers Frame-mode VPNs in great detail. I have read this book repeatedly and have absorbed a great deal on Frame based MPLS VPNs. The examples presented are succinct and to the point.
