By containerizing applications and network services, you can achieve unprecedented levels of network agility and efficiency. Cisco IOS-XE, IOS-XR, and NX-OS Architecture have been augmented with compute virtualization capabilities to accommodate both native and third-party container hosting, empowering organizations to containerize and instantiate any application or network service. Direct from Cisco, Containers in Cisco IOS-XE, IOS-XR, and NX-OS: Orchestration and Operation is the complete guide to deploying and operating containerized application and network services in Cisco platforms. The authors begin by reviewing the virtualization and containerization concepts network professionals need to know, and introducing today's leading orchestration tools. Next, they take a deep dive into container networking, introducing Cisco architectural support for container infrastructures. You'll find modular coverage of characteristics, configuration, and operations for each key Cisco software platform: IOS-XE, IOS-XR, and NX-OS. A full chapter on developer tools and resources shows how to build container images with Docker, and introduces Cisco's toolkits, APIs, NX-SDK or Open Access Containers (OAC), telemetry, Nexus Data Broker, management tools, Puppet, Chef, Ansible, and more. The authors conclude with multiple use cases, showing how users in diverse markets can drive value with containers.
Become well-versed with basic networking concepts such as routing, switching, and subnetting, and prepare for the Microsoft 98-366 exam Key Features Build a strong foundation in networking concepts Explore both the hardware and software aspects of networking Prepare by taking mock tests with up-to-date exam questions Book DescriptionA network is a collection of computers, servers, mobile devices, or other computing devices connected for sharing data. This book will help you become well versed in basic networking concepts and prepare to pass Microsoft's MTA Networking Fundamentals Exam 98-366. Following Microsoft's official syllabus, the book starts by covering network infrastructures to help you differentiate intranets, internets, and extranets, and learn about network topologies. You'll then get up to date with common network hardware devices such as routers and switches and the media types used to connect them together. As you advance, the book will take you through different protocols and services and the requirements to follow a standardized approach to networking. You'll get to grips with the OSI and TCP/IP models as well as IPv4 and IPv6. The book also shows you how to recall IP addresses through name resolution. Finally, you'll be able to practice everything you've learned and take the exam confidently with the help of mock tests. By the end of this networking book, you'll have developed a strong foundation in the essential networking concepts needed to pass Exam 98-366. What you will learnThings you will learn: Become well versed in networking topologies and concepts Understand network infrastructures such as intranets, extranets, and more Explore network switches, routers, and other network hardware devices Get to grips with different network protocols and models such as OSI and TCP/IP Work with a variety of network services such as DHCP, NAT, firewalls, and remote access Apply networking concepts in different real-world scenarios Who this book is forIf you're new to the IT industry or simply want to gain a thorough understanding of networking, this book is for you. A basic understanding of the Windows operating system and your network environment will be helpful.
As Internet traffic continues to grow exponentially, there is a great need to build Internet protocol (IP) routers with high-speed and high-capacity packet networking capabilities. The first book to explore this subject, Packet Forwarding Technologies explains in depth packet forwarding concepts and implementation technologies. It covers the data structures, algorithms, and architectures used to implement high-speed routers. Following an introduction to the architecture of IP routers, the author discusses how IP address lookup is one of the major bottlenecks in high-performance routers. He describes the characteristics of a routing table and addresses the difficulty of the longest-matching prefix search. The remainder of the book deals with fast IP address lookup. Coverage includes the various available architectures, data structures, and algorithms based on software and hardware as well as detailed discussions on state-of-the-art innovations. With many illustrations, tables, and simulations, this practical guide to packet forwarding technologies facilitates understanding of IP routers and the latest router designs.
The LISP overlay protocol helps organizations provide seamless connectivity to devices and workloads wherever they move, enabling open and highly scalable networks with unprecedented flexibility and agility. LISP Network Deployment and Troubleshooting is the single source for understanding, configuring and troubleshooting LISP on Cisco IOS, IOS XR and NX-OS platforms. It brings together comprehensive coverage of how LISP works, how it integrates with leading Cisco platforms, how to configure it for maximum efficiency, and how to troubleshoot LISP-related issues such as scalability and convergence. Focusing on design and deployment in real production environments, leading Cisco LISP engineers Tarique Shakil and Vinit Jain offer authoritative coverage of deploying LISP, verifying its operation, and optimizing its performance in widely diverse environments. Drawing on their unsurpassed experience supporting LISP deployments, they share detailed configuration examples, templates, and best practices designed to help you succeed with LISP no matter how you intend to use it. Coverage includes: Problems LISP solves, current use cases, and powerful emerging applications Standards and architecture, including control and data planes, packets, messaging, and communication processes LISP IPv4 unicast routing, IPv6 enablement/transition, and multicast LISP mobility in traditional data center and VXLAN fabrics LISP network virtualization and multi-tenancy LISP in the enterprise multi-homed Internet/WAN edge Securing, managing, and automating LISP
Rapid deployment and acceptance of broadband networks, including the 802.11 a/b/g, 3G cellular networks, WiMAX, and emerging 4G cellular IP networks, have sparked a growing reliance on voice over IP and the quickly emerging IP TV and Mobile TV. Providing the necessary background and technical understanding to stay abreast of and even ahead of the IP trend, IP Communications and Services for NGN explores IP development for the delivery of next generation mobile services. Packed with detailed illustrations, this cutting-edge reference examines the primary IP protocols (IPv4 and IPv6), real-time protocols, and three major IP services (VoIP, IPTV, and Mobile TV). It clearly explains the different architectures of fixed, mobile, and wireless networks along with the major advantages and disadvantages of each. It includes coverage of the latest in: The VoIP Market SCTP and Vertical Handoff RSVP: Resource Reservation Protocol MPLS: MultiProtocol Label Switching SIP: Session Initiation Protocol IMS: IP Multimedia Subsystem RTSP: Real-Time Streaming Protocol RTP: Real-Time Transport Protocol IPTV System Architectures and IPTV System Descriptions With a detailed listing of commonly used acronyms, along with a clear description of the role IP is likely to play in the development of next generation mobile services, this book provides educators, industry practitioners, regulators, and subscribers with the ideal starting point for developing the understanding required to deploy, train, and use IP services effectively and efficiently.
