Juniper Networks submitted its MPLS Plug-and-Play solution to independent testing; the company said the test results have verified that the system represents a significant simplification in the provisioning of large-scale Ethernet networks and services, including the ease of managing and troubleshooting Metro Ethernet networks.

The tests were conducted by Isocore, a technology validation and certification laboratory.

Testing was conducted on a large test bed that Juniper said is representative of a true carrier-class network. It was composed of Juniper Networks MX-series Ethernet Service Routers (ESRs) and M-series multi-service edge routers.

Findings of the independent test include:

• MPLS Plug-and-Play successfully established the support of error-resilient configurations on both edge and core routers used in the test.

• Successful demonstration of commit and operation scripts to automate configurations and diagnose failures in the network.

• Faultless discovery and operation of Ethernet Unnumbered Interfaces within IGP, BGP and MPLS networks.

"The ability to dynamically provision and deploy Carrier Ethernet networks and services expeditiously and cost-effectively – in a true 'plug-and-play' fashion – is very important to service providers," said Dr. Bijan Jabbari, president of Isocore. "In our evaluation of Juniper's MPLS Plug-and-Play solution, it demonstrated its capabilities in fulfilling the promises of automated provisioning and configuration, which helps save time and eliminate configuration errors."
