eLearning eDNS02 Reverse DNS Delegation Procedures

Reverse DNS delegations allow requesters to map to a domain name from an IP address. This is achieved by the use of pseudo-domain names in-addr.arpa (IPv4) and ip6.arpa (IPv6). For all IP address blocks IANA (the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority) allocates to APNIC, IANA also delegates corresponding reverse DNS zones within the centrally administered "in-addr.arpa" and "ip6.arpa" domains.

This eLearning course will focus on the concepts of Reverse DNS as well as the procedures on how to manage these reverse delegations.

eLearning eROU05 Introduction to MPLS

Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a standards based forwarding function defined by the Internet Engineering Task Force IETF. Traditional routing can be broken down into two specific functions of control plane functions and forwarding functions. Control Plane function involves the construction and maintenance of the routing table. Forwarding function involves the moving of packets from an incoming interface to an outgoing interface. Control Plane functions are normally handled by software on a Route/Control/Supervisor Processor of a router. Normally the forwarding functions of a router are handled in hardware by Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs), TCAMs or network processors.

MPLS works at a layer 2.5 of the OSI layers. MPLS defines a control plane function called the Label Distribution Protocol (LDP). LDP utilizes the routing table built by routing protocols, builds predefined label switch paths by binding labels to network prefixes. In a traditional routing environment at every intermediate router a layer 3 look up is required to identify the destination address in the packet before an outgoing interface can be identified. This is considered a major limitation of traditional routing. MPLS changes this by using label-swapping technique similar to the one used in Frame Relay networks. The key thing to remember about MPLS is that it's a forwarding technique, not a service. MPLS introduces another important feature called label stacking where a MPLS packet can have more than one label to enable services. MPLS Label stacking allows SPs deliver anything from IP VPNs, L2 VPNs, MPLS Traffic Engineering, etc.

Workshop WROU04 Introduction to MPLS

Traditional IP packet forwarding analyzes the destination IP address contained in the network layer header of each packet as the packet travels from its source to its final destination. A router analyzes the destination IP address independently at each hop in the network. Dynamic routing protocols or static configuration builds the database needed to analyze the destination IP address (the routing table). The process of implementing traditional IP routing also is called hop-by-hop destination-based unicast routing.

MPLS has evolved to address some of the concerns of the limitations of traditional IP routing and also address some of the key requirements from a services perspective. Previously Frame Relay and ATM based services were a choice for VPN services. However Frame Relay and ATM services were not able to offer differentiated services based on applications such as voice over IP, IP based Video Conferencing and other emerging applications. MPLS addresses some of these concerns. MPLS provides a number of services such as IPv4/IPv6 based L3 MPLS VPNs, L2 MPLS VPNs and Traffic Engineering. MPLS has provided some excellent solutions for Layer 3 and Layer 2 VPNs, which are widely used in today's Service Provider networks.
