"Network professionals who are looking to deploy triple-play service provider networks will find this book a useful tool." Michael Newbery, IP Architect, TelstraClear Limited "This book provides a wealth of information on current and future broadband architectures, services, and deployments. It will serve both experienced technical experts needing a comprehensive reference, as well as those needing a concise explanation of broadband access architectures and multi-play services." Sanjay Wadhwa, Product Line Manager, IP Edge Products, Juniper Networks "This book is a thorough guide for anyone involved with triple-play networks. Its multivendor approach and references to the latest standards from the DSL Forum and the IETF makes it a must-have for anyone involved in broadband access networks." Andrea Lasagna, Data & Video Services Manager, FASTWEB Service providers are increasingly focused on delivering triple-play bundles that incorporate Internet, video, and VoIP servicesas well as multi-play bundles containing even more advanced services.Broadband Network Architecturesis the first comprehensive guide to designing, implementing, and managing the networks that make triple-play services possible. Hellberg, Greene, and Boyes present their field-tested industry best practices and objectively evaluate the tradeoffs associated with key up-front architectural decisions that balance the complexities of bundled services and sophisticated traffic policies.Broadband Network Architecturesnot only documents what is possible on this rapidly changing field of networking, but it also details how to divide Internet access into these more sophisticated services with specialized Quality of Service handling. Coverage includes An in-depth introduction to next-generation triple-play services: components, integration, and business connectivity Triple-play backbone design: MPLS, Layer 3 VPNs, and Broadband Network Gateways (BNGs)/Broadband Remote Access Servers (B-RAS) Protocols and strategies for integrating BNGs into robust triple-play networks Triple-play access network design: DSLAM architectures, aggregation networks, transport, and Layer 2 tunneling VLAN-per-customer versus service-per-VLAN architectures: advantages and disadvantages PPP or DHCP: choosing the right access protocol Issues associated with operating in wholesale, unbundled environments IP addressing and subscriber session management Broadband network security, including Denial of Service attacks and VoIP privacy The future of wireless broadband: IMS, SIP, and non-SIP based fixed mobile convergence and wireless video Contents Foreword xv Preface xxi About the Authors xli Chapter 1 A History of Broadband Networks 1

Author Biography

Chris Hellberg has been working in the data communications industry for the last seven years for both telcos and vendors. He has design and operational experience with providers in Asia-Pacific and the EMEA region. He is currently a Professional Services Consultant for Juniper Networks in the EMEA region, specializing in BRAS and core platforms. His role with Juniper is to assist customers with the design, test, build, and deployment phases of broadband access and backbone networks of all sizes. He lives in the United Kingdom, although he most often can be found in one of Europe’s many airports.

Dylan Greene is a consultant with the Juniper Networks Professional Services group. He has more than a decade of technical networking experience, having worked in a variety of environments from Tier 1 carriers, greenfield providers, financial enterprise networks, and mobile carriers to aerospace and defense projects. His primary expertise is in designing and deploying IP and MPLS networks, with a subfocus on network security. Prior to Juniper Networks, his work included academic computing, helping to establish an early competitive regional ISP/DSL provider, a managed IDC/hosting provider, and working on large, multinational financial networks. He has been based in Asia-Pacific, Europe, and North America, and currently resides in Boston with his wife, Luciana.

Truman Boyes has designed and implemented large-scale carrier networks for the past ten years. He is a Professional Services Consultant for Juniper Networks in Asia-Pacific, where he is implementing next-generation networks that cater to larger subscriber growth and provide resiliency. He has designed networks all over the world that specialize in MPLS, Quality of Service, and advances in traffic engineering. He is active in numerous Internet and security-related technical forums. He lives with his partner in Wellington, New Zealand.

Dial-up Internet access, while being a well-understood and reliable service, could not keep pace with the demands of having homes connected at broadband speeds. Cable networks, with their hybrid fiber and coax networks, were also competing for similar customers as traditional Telcos. Thanks to cable operators, Triple Play services had already gained a foothold in the customer conscience as a service bundle that can be provided by a single company. This eased the way for Telcos to also deliver their own Triple Play service bundles over a single copper pair--the same copper pair that was used for many years as a simple telephone line.A Triple Play package is a bundle of an Internet, video, and VoIP service. Video services almost always have two components: a Video on Demand, and an IP Television (IPTV). IPTV takes traditional terrestrial and satellite channels and delivers them over an IP network to the customer premises. Multi-Play services are an extension of this concept and divide Internet access in to more sophisticated services with specialized Quality of Service handling.Until the early to mid part of this decade, apart from some early-adopters, service providers were not given to broadening their residential data portfolio past Internet access. This mindset is rapidly changing and the market is diverging into two segments. The first segment is the commodity ISPs, who provide a cheap and fast Internet service. The cost-barrier to entry is lower due to the lower service overhead; the competition here is fierce. The second is to whom this book is aimed--those providers in, or looking at, getting into the Triple- and Multi-Play service market.Several reasons drive the diversification. From a political perspective, many Telcos with wired access are finding their traditional revenues being eroded due to regulatory pressures. Triple- and Multi-service bundles are an ideal way to maintain some service margin in an increasingly competitive market. For access seekers, regulatory interv
