Advanced Topics and Future Directions in MPLS
This session presents the most recent extensions to the MPLS architecture. The material has a special focus on standardization and forward-looking directions for the evolution of the technology. The session begins with an overview of the activities in the most relevant IETF working groups. It then covers the latest technical developments in Unified MPLS, Path Computation Element, Transport Evolution and Layer-2 VPNs (E-VPN/PPB-EVPN). This session is directed at network architects. Attendees must have architectural or deployment level experience in MPLS. Attendance to intermediate MPLS sessions (or previous knowledge) is considered a prerequisite.
