Scale your Internet backbone with core MPLS, BGP on the edge

The Scale your backbone with core MPLS, BGP on the edge article I wrote for SearchTelecom describes how you can improve the stability and scalability of a Service Provider core network by replacing BGP on the core routers with MPLS switching. You'll also find a typical design scenario and a few recommendations that you should follow to prevent router reloads from introducing black holes in your MPLS network.

The list of all articles I wrote for SearchTelecom is available in the CT3 wiki.
