Beyond MPLS . Less is More
Found in: IEEE Internet Computing
By Chris Metz, Colby Barth, Clarence Filsfils
Issue Date:September 2007
pp. 72-76
Multiprotocol Label Switching possesses a simple data-plane that has enabled new services and functions operating in many service provider networks. Yet,the MPLS control plane can impose both technical and operational challenges. This article explores thes...
 
The Transition to IPv6, Part II: The Softwire Mesh Framework Solution
Found in: IEEE Internet Computing
By Yong Cui, Jianping Wu, Xing Li, Mingwei Xu, Chris Metz
Issue Date:September 2006
pp. 76-80
Part I of this series described a prototype solution that provides dynamic IPv4 routing and forwarding across the IPv6-based China Education and Research Network (CERNET2). This work spawned an effort in the IETF to develop a generalized method for routing...
 
The Transition to IPv6, Part 1: 4over6 for the China Education and Research Network
Found in: IEEE Internet Computing
By Jianping Wu, Yong Cui, Xing Li, Chris Metz
Issue Date:May 2006
pp. 80-85
Researchers at the Tsinghua University in Beijing propose a mechanism for letting IPv4 networks communicate with each other across an IPv6 backbone via a Border-Gateway Protocol (BGP)-based control plane for advertising tunnels and IPv4 network prefixes. T...
 
Multiprotocol Label Switching and IP, Part 2: Multicast Virtual Private Networks
Found in: IEEE Internet Computing
By Chris Metz
Issue Date:January 2006
pp. 76-81
Part 1 of this series discussed a solution for running Multiprotocol Label Switching virtual private networks (MPLS VPNs) across a service provider?s native IP network. Yet, MPLS VPNs support only unicast routing, whereas many of the enterprise customers t...
 
Internet Multimedia: Answering Basic Questions
Found in: IEEE Internet Computing
By Chris Metz
Issue Date:July 2005
pp. 51-55
IP networks, including the public Internet and private corporate intranets, have emerged as the common way to carry data, voice, and video — otherwise known as multimedia. Some technologies and protocols that help multimedia work over IP networks are alrea...
 
Multiprotocol Label Switching and IP, Part I: MPLS VPNs over IP Tunnels
Found in: IEEE Internet Computing
By Brian Daugherty, Chris Metz
Issue Date:May 2005
pp. 68-72
Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a tunneling technology used in many service provider networks. The most popular MPLS-enabled application in use today is the MPLS virtual private network. MPLS VPNs were developed to operate over MPLS networks, but t...
 
A Look at Native IPv6 Multicast
Found in: IEEE Internet Computing
By Chris Metz, Mallik Tatipamula
Issue Date:July 2004
pp. 48-53
IP multicast offers a bandwidth-efficient means for transmitting packets to multiple hosts for applications that require multiparty communications. Coupled with IPv6's larger address space, its inherent multicast support will enable current and future Inte...
 
The Latest in VPNs: Part II
Found in: IEEE Internet Computing
By Chris Metz
Issue Date:May 2004
pp. 60-65
In part I of this series, we defined a virtual private network (VPN) as a discrete network entity configured and operated over a public or private shared network infrastructure. We now turn our attention to an equally important type of VPN that is generati...
 
Tunnel-Based IPv6 Transition
Found in: IEEE Internet Computing
By Yong Cui,Jiang Dong,Peng Wu,Jianping Wu,Chris Metz,Yiu L. Lee,Alain Durand
Issue Date:March 2013
pp. 62-68
IPv6 transition presents many challenges to the Internet community, and various solutions have been proposed, including dual stack, tunneling, and translation. Tunneling supports "like-to-like" IP connectivity across an "unlike" network...
 
Guest Editors' Introduction: The Continuing Road toward Internet Media
Found in: IEEE Internet Computing
By Scott Bradner, Chris Metz
Issue Date:July 2005
pp. 19-21
Originally, we wanted this issue's theme to be about the broad topic of Internet media—that is, we wanted to cover all types of video and audio distribution and interaction over the Internet. What we wound up with, however, is the third in a series, spaced...
