Proprietary and Confidentialwww.juniper.net 4 Accelerating the Enterprise TRUTHMYTH MPLS in the Data Center  “Deploying MPLS in the enterprise is like swatting a fly with a nuclear weapon.”  MPLS was designed to allow the largest networks on the planet to scale their topologies and services  Many large enterprises today face the same scaling and management problems as traditional providers … and: Sometimes you *do* need a big fly-swatter.

5 Copyright © 2008 Juniper Networks, Inc. Proprietary and Confidentialwww.juniper.net 5 Accelerating the Enterprise What Is MPLS?  Multi-Protocol Label Switching A suite of protocols developed to add transport and virtualization capabilities to large IP networks Borrowed virtual circuit ideas from ATM But packet based (no SAR) Leverages standard IPv4 (or IPv6) control plane Manage MPLS networks using familiar protocols like OSPF or Integrated IS-IS and BGP  Label Switched Paths Adds switched virtual circuit layer to packet based networks A single LSP can span various media types Ethernet, ATM, Frame Relay, PPP/HDLC links (PoS, PDH)

6 Copyright © 2008 Juniper Networks, Inc. Proprietary and Confidentialwww.juniper.net 6 Accelerating the Enterprise Two Layers of MPLS Functionality  MPLS Label Switched Paths [Traffic Control] LSPs carry traffic between edge routers Individual LSPs are engineered using various Traffic Engineering technologies (ERO or Dynamic TE) Various link/LSP protection mechanisms operate on LSP layer (Fast-Reroute, Standby LSPs)  MPLS VPN Layer [Virtualization] Ingress traffic mapped into specific LSPs “Customer” traffic encapsulated across MPLS core BGP/MPLS L3VPNs (RFC4364, formerly 2547bis) L2VPN or VPLS Pseudowire (draft-martini or CCC)

Proprietary and Confidentialwww.juniper.net 8 Accelerating the Enterprise  Inter-Data Center Transport Network  Network Segmentation for Compliance (VLAN-VRF)  L2VPN for VLAN Extensions (VMotion for DRP) Agenda Brief MPLS Overview Advantages of MPLS Networks Why MPLS Is “Important” to Data Center Deployments Deployment Scenarios Summary

9 Copyright © 2008 Juniper Networks, Inc. Proprietary and Confidentialwww.juniper.net 9 Accelerating the Enterprise MPLS Brings the Benefits of Circuits to IP What’s So Great About MPLS?  Enables Consolidation of disparate networks onto a single network Support best effort, enhanced delivery, and assured delivery service levels for mixed use services Lowers capital and operational cost though convergence while enabling application convergence  Delivers Control through traffic segregation Regional-, departmental-, and project-oriented groups have control over their network assets and configurations Traffic remains separate though multiple MPLS-based VPNs  Provides Resiliency with fast reroute and traffic engineering MPLS-based traffic engineering enables a fine-tuning of the network to deliver appropriate levels of services Enables sub-50 msec. reroute to maintain real-time traffic during a node or link failure

10 Copyright © 2008 Juniper Networks, Inc. Proprietary and Confidentialwww.juniper.net 10 Accelerating the Enterprise  Inter-Data Center Transport Network  Network Segmentation for Compliance (VLAN-VRF)  L2VPN for VLAN Extensions (VMotion for DRP) Agenda Brief MPLS Overview Advantages of MPLS Networks Why MPLS Is “Important” to Data Center Deployments Deployment Scenarios Summary

11 Copyright © 2008 Juniper Networks, Inc. Proprietary and Confidentialwww.juniper.net 11 Accelerating the Enterprise Translating MPLS Benefits to Business Impact  Enterprises that have large private networks or business critical Data Centers can leverage MPLS to create both CapEx and OpEx cost savings  Moving to an MPLS network provides business benefits like improved network availability, performance, and policy enforcement  Enterprises should evaluate MPLS to determine if this is the right opportunity to implement MPLS capable hardware into their Data Center network In order to support business critical applications that require highly-available, low-latency and “carrier-class” reliability with a proven track record

12 Copyright © 2008 Juniper Networks, Inc. Proprietary and Confidentialwww.juniper.net 12 Accelerating the Enterprise The Legacy Network: High Cost Resiliency  Traditional private IP networks do not support “real time” applications Routing tables do not converge fast enough to support sub 50-msec link and node failures  The alternative is to deploy SONET/SDH to provide sub-50 msec link and node failure detection and re-routing  This additional transport layer in the private WAN and Data Center comes at a significant additional expense Let’s look at an alternative…

13 Copyright © 2008 Juniper Networks, Inc. Proprietary and Confidentialwww.juniper.net 13 Accelerating the Enterprise The MPLS Resiliency Solution  MPLS can be deployed without the additional cost and complexity of SONET/SDH Dark fiber installations and/or Provider Ethernet services  MPLS can be configured to support sub 50-msec link and node failure detection and correction Fast Re-Route (FRR) provides “real time” re-routing over back-up paths Bi-directional Forwarding Detection (BFD) provides early detection of link and node failures  The Result: MPLS provides a cost effective alternative for the highly resilient network supporting “real-time” communications

14 Copyright © 2008 Juniper Networks, Inc. Proprietary and Confidentialwww.juniper.net 14 Accelerating the Enterprise The Legacy Network: Cost of Building Redundant Networks  Integration of a new business entity or application in the Data Center or maintaining separation among various businesses Rapidly changing requirements in a Data Center to add/move/remove applications to support business functions worldwide Regulatory environments and business operations sometimes require guarantees of business unit/subsidiary separation  Traditional practices require separate physical and redundant networks to be built Application X, Business Partner, Voice, Storage, PCI compliance, etc.  Each separate and redundant network requires its own Equipment (Networking, servers, etc.) WAN access Space and power Provisioning Management…making this an expensive proposition Let’s look at an alternative…

15 Copyright © 2008 Juniper Networks, Inc. Proprietary and Confidentialwww.juniper.net 15 Accelerating the Enterprise The MPLS Network Solution  MPLS enables one physical network to be configured and operate as many separate virtual networks L2 or L3 VPN services  New acquisitions and various applications can be added to the network via MPLS VPNs Each subsidiary or application is allowed to operate as though each has a private network…over a cost effective shared infrastructure  MPLS allows for more control over network bandwidth allocation per service/application while maintaining latency requirements for critical applications  The Result: Diverse needs of business units are satisfied with virtualized networks that cost less and effectively scale to support the largest enterprises
