Day One: CGNAT Up and Running on the MX Series

The new MS-MPC or MS-MIC service cards for the MX series have advanced processing that supports dynamic NAT or advanced NATing features like PAT, or ALG features such as DPI packet rewrites. Itís all here for you to check out and test in your lab.

CGNAT, which is also known as Large Scale NAT, is a buzzword for a highly-scalable NAT device that sits between the CPE and a core network. If the device being used is an MX Series, well now, that device is very scalable, and it can take your current Network Address Translation usage and truly make it carrier grade. Itís all in how you set up the MX.

What you need is a JTAC engineer to explain the ins and outs of the MX Series, and thatís what Joe Naughton does in this book. He provides the configurations, the feature sets, the application layer gateways, and the syslogs you need to make the MX hum. Thereís a troubleshooting chapter written as only a JTAC engineer can, as well as a scalable use case that puts some load balancing MX features to the test. "However you define CGNAT it begins with MX."

"This is just the book you need if your current NAT needs are starting to scream at you. Itís filled full of useful MX Series insights and even includes a service provider Use Case that puts it all together. This one sits on my desk." ó David Roy, IP/MPLS NOC Engineer, Orange France, blogger:

  • Understand the hardware needed for your network to go carrier grade.
  • Understand the different NAT configurations of the MX Series and how they can fit into your networkís needs.
  • Monitor and manage the MX Series when it is configured in a CGNAT solution.
  • Build a working model in your lab for testing and prototyping.
