Juniper Networks Showcases its Technology Leadership and Innovation at the International MPLS Conference 2006
Juniper Fellows and Key MPLS Contributors to Present on Monday and Tuesday; Company Demonstrates Advanced MPLS-Based VPNs and IPTV over MPLS Technologies
- Inter-AS VPLS which enables large providers who have multiple autonomous systems (AS) to easily set up VPLS domains across them. Inter-AS VPLS also allows smaller providers to partner with other carriers to provide global VPNs.
- BGP Multi-homing which enables service providers to deliver VPLS with added reliability by allowing a VPLS customer site to be connected to the carrier network by way of two independent connection points-one serving as the primary connection, the other is a standby or back-up connection activated in the event of a failure of the operating connection. By using BGP, Multi-homing provides greater reliability and efficiency than other technologies like Spanning Tree.
