VPN services have been available for decades but not widely used until recently. A combination of new VPN technologies, network technologies and business communication requirements is the driving force behind the take-up of VPN services. This paper gives an overview of recent VPN solutions and analyses their scalability and flexibility. VPN solutions are categorized and related to potential customer segments. Furthermore, measurements based on a large north-American carrier's backbone are…

A Methodology of Resilient MPLS/VPN Path Management Under Multiple Link Failures

TLDR
This paper has derived the conditions for testing the availability of feasible backup paths satisfying the resilience constraints in a special MPLS VPN network in which the VPN path has monotonic property.

IP-Based Virtual Private Network Implementations in Future Cellular Networks

TLDR
This chapter is focused on identifying high-level use cases and scenarios where IP-based VPN services can be implemented on top of cellular networks, and the authors predict the future involvement of IP- based VPNs in beyond-LTE cellular networks.

Providing resilient quality of service connections in provider-based virtual private networks

TLDR
It is argued in this thesis that these frameworks individually lead to poor network utilization and propose a new framework where both constraints are considered simultaneously, which exploits the dependency between endto-end delay, provisioned bandwidth and chosen path through using the provisioning bandwidth as a variable.

Handbook of Research on Progressive Trends in Wireless Communications and Networking

TLDR
This chapter is focused on identifying high-level use cases and scenarios where IP-based VPN services can be implemented on top of cellular networks, and the authors predict the future involvement of IP- based VPNs in beyond-LTE cellular networks.

Virtual Wire: Optimisation of Virtual Ethernet Tunnel in Linux

TLDR
This report presents a novel approach to providing a ’Nearlynet’ type solution by enhancing the Linux kernel using Vtun in order to create minimal service Ethernet functionality and high speed tunneling services for deployment within a network.

TLDR
The design and the implementation of the managed bandwidth service (MBS) in a high speed backbone network as well as a management tool for the service, designed and implemented on GRNET's network.

Enhancing security and scalability of Virtual Private LAN Services

TLDR
A scalable secure flat-VPLS architecture is proposed based on a Host Identity Protocol (HIP) that contains a session key-based security mechanism and an efficient broadcast mechanism that increase the forwarding and security plane scalability of VPLS networks.

ENHANCED PROVISIONING ALGORITHM FOR VIRTUAL PRIVATE NETWORK IN HOSE MODEL WITH QUALITY OF SERVICE SUPPORT USING WAXMAN MODEL

TLDR
The K-Cost Optimized Delay Satisfied Virtual Private Networks Tree Provisioning Algorithm connects VPN nodes using a tree structure and attempts to optimize the total bandwidth reserved on the edges of the VPN tree that satisfies the delay requirement.

A flexible model for resource management in virtual private networks

TLDR
A new service interface is proposed, termed a hose, to provide the appropriate performance abstraction to manage network resources in the face of increased uncertainty, and the statistical multiplexing and resizing techniques deal effectively with uncertainties about the traffic.

BGP/MPLS VPNs

TLDR
This document describes a method by which a Service Provider with an IP backbone may provide VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) for its customers in a manner which is simple for the enterprise, while still scalable and flexible for the Service Provider.

Algorithms for provisioning virtual private networks in the hose model

TLDR
Novel algorithms for provisioning VPNs in the hose model are developed and it is shown that the VPN trees constructed by the proposed algorithms dramatically reduce bandwidth requirements compared to scenarios in which Steiner trees are employed to connect VPN endpoints.

Traffic engineering with MPLS in the Internet

TLDR
This article discusses traffic engineering with multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) in an Internet service provider's network, and discusses how to provide QoS in a network with MPLS.

MPLS Support of Differentiated Services using E-LSP

TLDR
This document defines extensions relating to the use of E-LSPs in an MPLS network to support per-OA signalling and is proposed for both RSVP and CR-LDP.

Engineering end-to-end IP resilience using resilience-differentiated QoS

TLDR
In this article an extension to existing quality of service (QoS) architectures is presented that integrates the signaling of resilience requirements with the traditional QoS signaling and is referred to as resilience-differentiated QoS (RD-QoS).

Overview and Principles of Internet Traffic Engineering

TLDR
The principles, architectures, and methodologies for performance evaluation and performance optimization of operational IP networks are discussed throughout this document.

O(n**2) Investigations

RATES: a server for MPLS traffic engineering

TLDR
The path selection for LSPs is on a new minimum-interference routing algorithm aimed at making the best use of network infrastructure in an online environment where LSP requests arrive one by one with no a priori information about future requests.
