MPLS / Segment Routing (SRPING) in Nokia (Alcatel-Lucent) SR OS and Cisco IOS XR

Hello my friend,

In this article we’ll talk about the newest technology that can build MPLS data plane. This technology is called Segment Routing, or more formally SPRING (Source Packet Routing In NetworkinG). Let’s take a look how you can configure it in multi-vendor network built with Nokia (Alcatel-Lucent) SR OS and Cisco IOS XR.

Configuring IPv6/OSPFv3 between Nokia (Alcatel-Lucent) SR OS and Cisco IOS XR

Hello my friend,
Having covered IPv4/OSPFv2 in the previous article I was constantly thinking about improving topology as it’s difficult to show many interesting things having only two routers. And finally I find the way how to do it. In this article about IPv6/OSPFv3 the topology is two times bigger and now we have 4 virtual routers. Let’s discover how IPv6 traffic is routed by OSPFv3.

Configuring OSPF between Nokia (Alcatel-Lucent) SR OS and Cisco IOS XR

Hello my friend,
This article will be quite long so make a cup of tea for you sit more comfortable. Though the configuration of any routing protocol (IGP) can be relatively quick and short, usually you have to tune many additional parameters to get desired level of speed and reliability. I won’t cover all the features of OSPF, as it’s just impossible, but I will provide more or less complete config, which is used in service provider network.

Do Nokia (Alcatel-Lucent) SR OS and Cisco IOS XR speak the same language?

Hello my friend,

I’m continuing my exciting discovery of Nokia (Alcatel-Lucent) IP solution and ways how it works. The main topic for today is the comparison of configuration of Nokia (Alcatel-Lucent)’s and Cisco’s operation systems, which are used in their network devices in Service Provider (SP) networks. In the previous article I’ve covered the process of setting up the lab, which includes Cisco IOS XRv and Nokia VSR virtual routers, so my further investigations will be based on this lab.
