MIBs, Tools, and Techniques
- Thomas Nadeau, VP/Principle Software Architect at CA Technologies where he is responsible for architecture and standards leadership around CA's network infrastructure management products. Prior to joining CA Technologies, Tom was a Distinguished Engineer at Huawei Technologies, Tom worked on projects involving IP, MPLS, MPLS-TP, Pseudowires, VPN/VPLS, video, Ethernet, cloud and grid computing, as well as content/media.Prior to Huawei, Tom was a Principle Network Architect at BT and Head of International Standards Prior to BT Tom worked at Cisco Systems where he was a Technical Leader responsible for the leadership, standardization and architecture of operations and management for MPLS-related components of Cisco IOS ® and IOS-XR ®. Tom is an active participant in the IETF, ITU, and IEEE. He is co-author numerous protocol, architecture and MIB documents in the MPLS, BFD, L2/L3 VPN, MPLS-TP, pseudo-wire, and traffic engineering areas, including being a co-author of over 30 IETF RFCs, numerous internet drafts, and ITU-T contributions.
MPLS-enabled networks are enjoying tremendous growth, but practical information on managing MPLS-enabled networks has remained hard to find. Until now. MPLS Network Management: MIBs, Tools, and Techniques is the first and only book that will help you master MPLS management technologies and techniques, as they apply to classic MPLS networks, traffic-engineered networks, and VPNs. Written by the co-author of most current MPLS management standards, it provides detailed, authoritative coverage of official MIBs, examining key topics ranging from syntax to access levels to object interaction. It also offers extensive consideration of third-party management interfaces, including tools for metering traffic and predicting traffic growth and behavior. If you're a network operator, network device engineer, or MPLS application developer, you need this book to get all you can out of all of MPLS's many capabilities.
