Introduction to IP VPN
What is an IP VPN?

Virtual Private Network (VPN)


• A secure, shared infrastructure over a private domain
network managed by a service provider or over the
public Internet

IP VPN
• A VPN network that uses the standard TCP/IP
protocol suite

IP Service Types
Customer’s Sites Segmentation Into 3 Cases

A customer IP VPN Network can be


composed of a mix of IP service types
• SILVER – Unique COS SILVER GOLD
– 100% of the IP bandwidth
No traffic Data traffic
prioritization prioritization
• GOLD – Data Classes Of Service
(1 COS) (Up to 3 COS)
Standard COS profiles
– 60% - D1, 30% - D2, 10% - D3
– 66% - D1, 33% - D2
– 100% - D2
PLATINUM
• PLATINUM – Multimedia
Data + Multimedia
– Voice class
prioritization (Up
– Video class to 3+2 COS)
– + Gold standard profiles

• Flexible options
IP Service Types
COS Management

Data classes D1, D2 and D3


• CB-WFQ for all classes (relative weight = relative priority in case of
congestion)
• No layer 3 shaping: Each data class can use up to the IP bandwidth
• No more Frame Relay facilities: Traffic always limited to the IP
bandwidth
Voice class – RT-vo
• LLQ – Real-time class (highest priority)
• Flexible size up to 75% of the IP bandwidth
• Policed
• Data classes limited to IP bandwidth – MM traffic in case of congestion
Video class – RT-vi
• CB-WFQ (specific weight = highest priority in case of congestion) –
Video specific sizing
• Layer 3 shaping: Protect and keep the IP bandwidth for data classes.
Traffic always limited to the configured bandwidth for video traffic

CB-WFQ: Class Based – Weighted Fair Queuing


LLQ: Low Latency Queuing
