Book: Definitive MPLS Designs (Cisco Press)

Friend and associate Pete Welcher at NetCraftsmen indicates that the new Cisco Press book Definitive MPLS Designs, by Jim Guichard, François Le Faucheur, and Jean-Philippe Vasseur, is an outstanding book.  Pete says: “What really made the book for me was the pockets of QoS throughout. … This book states what the QoS policy intent is and then talks through implementing it, complete with useful config snippets.”  Since MPLS is replacing almost all WAN connectivity, this book is going to be a very useful source of practical information.

Pete is an excellent source of all sorts of useful networking information.  He’s one of the early CCIEs and was one of the premier instructors at Chesapeake back in the late 1990s. He has a lot of networking articles posted .  NetCraftsmen is a group of excellent networking people who do high-end consulting.  If you’re looking for someone who can figure out something that others have failed to do, then they’re who you want to call.  They aren’t cheap — but they are good value because they are good.  Even if they have to learn some new technology, they learn it faster than anyone else I’ve seen.
