MPLS 2010 Conference and Cisco Leadership

Well I am just recovering from a fantastic IETF-79 held in Beijing, PRC from November 7-12. I have to say that  the MPLS Conference 2010, held in Washington D.C. from October 24-27 was a resounding success!

MPLS-TP was the hot topic at MPLS 2010 this year in Washington D.C. Cisco had a strong presence e.g. with seven Cisco distinguished engineer and technical lead presenters:

  • Monique Morrow, Distinguished Engineer
  • Luyuan Fang, Principal Engineer
  • George Swallow, Distinguished Engineer
  • Santiago Alvarez, Distinguished Engineer
  • Azhar Sayeed, Director of Product Marketing
  • Clarence Filsfils, Distinguished Engineer
  • Zafar Ali, Technical Leader

Cisco had presentations on MPLS-TP, multicast, mobility, optical and cloud. Following, is my presentation from the Technical Sessions on Day 1

At this conference there was no question that MPLS-TP is the industry standard!

Finally, most significantly, the ISOCORE interoperability demo was an excellent public venue to showcase the results of a first-ever multi-vendor, standards-based MPLS-TP interop testing.

Having a new section on innovation and emerging technologies added depth to this conference.

Bravo !
