    Resilient Packet Ring Overview

    The Resilient Packet Ring chapter describes how to use the Resilient Packet Ring feature of IP/MPLSView. Resilient Packet Ring (RPR) is a MAC-level Ethernet-based technology for IP and Ethernet service delivery designed for metro networks. RPR offers greater bandwidth efficiency than traditional TDM technology by allowing for bandwidth sharing of links. Additionally, it offers fast ring protection similar to traditional transport rings.

    Note: A license is required for the RPR feature. Please contact your Juniper representative for more information.

    RPR data can be parsed from a set of config files or added from the IP/MPLSView client. SRP topology information should also be provided in order to correctly order the nodes of the ring.

    For an overview of IP/MPLSView or for a detailed description of each feature and the use of each window, refer to the IP/MPLSView Java-Based Graphical User Interface Reference.

    The following is a high-level outline of the functionality of the RPR feature.
