Workshop Advanced MPLS Workshop

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.

eLearning eDNS02 Reverse DNS for IPv4 and IPv6

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

This course will focus on the concepts of Reverse DNS as well as the procedures for managing these reverse delegations.
