Advanced Praise(s)

“It is about time someone wrote a book about how you merge networks together while maintaining the needs of the business.”

Tom Scholl, Principal IP Network Engineer, AT&T Labs

“I have never read such an excellent book detailing so much about Juniper router operation and design knowledge in depth, not only it has helped me with operating all of our Juniper routers in our national backbone network more efficiently, but also on improving my design knowledge as well.”

Ji Hui, Senior Manager, China Telecom Group Corporation

“NMM gives a clear idea of the difficulty of merging or migrating IP networks, and it is a great help for engineers that have to face this type of operation for the first time or even repeatedly.”

Chiara Moriondo, Senior Engineer, Telecom Italia Labs

“Network Mergers and Migrations is a thorough guide for anyone involved in a wide range of network consolidation and integration exercises. The authors use Junos as a technical focus for their examples keeping the concepts related to some of the more relevant protocols and topics in current IP and MPLS networks. It’s a must-have book for anyone wishing to further enhance their protocol knowledge base.”

Shafik Hirjee, Bell Canada, Director, National MPLS/IP Core Network Engineering

“We operate the largest R&E network in the world using Juniper T640s, and my job often involves network planning and design. I have found this book to be just the one I need. I thought I knew Junos, but these authors are at an unprecedented level.”

Zheng Zhiyan, Senior Engineer, Network Operation Center, CNGI-6IX/CERNET2

“Recommended reading for networkers who like to look into complex and detailed network migration scenarios, as well as those interested in a better understanding of Junos implementation of common ISP protocols.”

Andreas Weiner, Network Engineer/IP Backbone, Telekom Austria TA AG

“Network Mergers and Migrations provides network operators a comprehensive reference for network migration. The level of detail included in this book is exceptional. It’s a thorough guide for any network professional who are involved with network migration.”

Mazen A. Baragaba & Eid Al Harbi Communications Engineers, Communications operations department, Saudi Aramco

“Efficient IP network planning and management involves more than just the in-depth knowledge of theory. This book helps the reader gain a thorough understanding of the Junos routing architecture via practical and useful case studies, resulting in smooth and clean transitions between different network implementations. The clear and concise exposition make this book a pleasure to read and a useful companion during work.”

Giorgio Lembo, R&D Director, Tinet S.p.A.
