Day One: Configuring Segment Routing with Junos

Follow this book’s lab to configure the basics of Segment Routing and then enable advanced traffic protection.

Over the past few years there’s been a lot of buzz in the industry about Segment Routing, and in response Juniper has developed a very comprehensive feature set in the Junos® OS and the NorthStar Controller. This book explains how to configure and understand the operation of Segment Routing in the Junos OS.

In Day One: Configuring Segment Routing with Junos, two Senior Engineers distill their professional field experience and knowledge into a lab book well worth following. You’ll learn the different types of segments and how to fine-tune them in various topologies: the first half of the book configures and examines the components that make Segment Routing so attractive, and the second half of the book instructs you on how to configure traffic engineering into the network you built in the first half.

“There has been a lot of interest in Segment Routing from hyperscalers, service providers, and large enterprises alike. This book takes you all the way from the fundamental principles of Segment Routing to advanced topics such as TI-LFA in an easy to follow, clearly explained format. SREs, network designers, and network architects will all make it their go-to reference.” – Bikash Koley, EVP & CTO, Juniper Networks

“Configuring Segment Routing with Junos is the ideal book to understand and to implement Segment Routing technology in an IP/MPLS network. It describes the basic concepts of the technology as well as some implementation use cases like traffic protection with TI-LFA. The book provides several examples of configuration and operational commands which will definitely help you during your implementation. That is worth reading!” – Stephane Litkowski, Network Architect and Orange Expert, Orange Business Services

IT’S DAY ONE AND YOU HAVE A JOB TO DO, SO LEARN HOW TO
  • Understand the key principles behind Segment Routing.
  • Configure Segment Routing on routers running the Junos OS.
  • Verify Segment Routing operation on Junos devices.
  • Configure Segment Routing to LDP interworking and understand the operating principles.
  • Understand and configure TI-LFA operation to support traffic protection.

About the Authors
Julian Lucek a Distinguished Systems Engineer at Juniper Networks, where he has been working with many operators on the design and evolution of their networks. Before joining Juniper Networks in 1999, he worked at BT for several years, at first in the Photonics Research Department and later in the data transport and routing area. During this time he gained a PhD in ultrahigh-speed optical transmission and processing from Cambridge University. He holds several patents in the area of communications technology. He is the co-author of MPLS-Enabled Applications: Emerging Developments and New Technologies with Ina Minei (Wiley, 2011).

Krzysztof Grzegorz Szarkowicz is a Product Line Manager at Juniper Networks, and has been working with the networking industry 20+ years, delivering projects at many operators world wide. Before joining Juniper Networks in 2007, he worked with Hewlett Packard Labs, Telia Research, Ericsson, and Cisco. During that time he gained valuable hands-on experience with various aspects of networking, culminating in gaining CCIE-SP and JNCIE-SP certifications. He is the co-author of MPLS in the SDN Era with Antonio Sanchez-Monge (O’Reilly Media, 2015).
