LISP Network, The: Evolution to the Next-Generation of Data Networks
The complete guide to seamless anytime/anywhere networking with LISP
In an era of ubiquitous clouds, virtualization, mobility, and the Internet of Things, information and resources must be accessible anytime, from anywhere. Connectivity to devices and workloads must be seamless even when people move, and their location must be fully independent of device identity. The Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP) makes all this possible.
The LISP Network is the first comprehensive, in-depth guide to LISP concepts, architecture, techniques, behavior, and applications. Co-authored by LISP co-creator Dino Farinacci and Victor Moreno–co-developer of the Cisco LISP implementation–it will help you identify the opportunities and benefits of deploying LISP in any data center, campus and branch access, WAN edge, or service provider core network.
This largely implementation-agnostic guide will be valuable to architects, engineers, consultants, technical sales professionals, and senior IT professionals in any largescale network environment. The authors show how LISP overcomes key problems in large-scale networking, thoroughly introduce its key applications, guide you through designing real-world solutions, and present detailed deployment case studies based on their pioneering experience.
