Cisco Validated Design for ISP

Hello all

I am looking for Best Practice Design guide for ISPs, it is True that every ISP has its own type of services to offer, but in genral all of them are supporting L2/L3 VPN Customers, BGP, IGP, PPP ..etc

Is there any document provided by cisco for ISP Best Practice Design & Implementaion similar to what the below page is offering for WAN/Cloud/Mobile/LAN validated Design Docuement?

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/solutions/enterprise/design-zone/index.html

Thanks in advance

    You could also post this in reddit.com/r/ccie and reddit.com/r/networking there are a lot of active users there that could answer your question. [:)]

  • +1 this book has some good information in it,  other books are:

     

    Cisco Press - Cisco ISP Essentials (a mix of design and best practice via configuration).

    Building Service Provider Networks (older but some good  theory).

    Cisco Press - Residential Broadband (old and mostly focused around the RLEC still a good read).

    Cisco Press - Metro Ethernet (this is the current/future  direction of the WAN).

    Cisco Press - Optical Network Design and Implementation (while SDH/TDM is going down WDM is not).

    MEF CECP v2 blueprint - as with the Metro Ethernet book above, its not as huge around how to configure MEF services but its all about design and industry termonology.

    Great list of books Nate, thanks!

  • Thank you all for your Reply.

  • One more good books which describes routing design . I think this book will be very helpful.

    My humble opinion: there's not a single book out there that comes close to detailing a full ISP network design. Halabi never even scratched the surface, and Optimal Routing Design is a start but not a finish.

  • correct, look at my list above.

     

    the issue is the term "service provider" covers a very big gap because now we are talking layer 1 - 3 100% vs in the enterprise the assumption is layer 1 simple copper/fiber in the LAN and leased something in the WAN.

     

    layer 1 of the service provider is a huge arena that covers any and everything from TDM/SDH/WDM/etc and now funnels upwards quickly to Carrier ethernet, MPLS for L3VPN (MPLS honestly for everything as you know), ethernet ring topologies, SLA based metric measurement (y.1731), OAM (CFM), routing protocols not used the same way you are used to in the enterprise (BGP vs MP-BGP or IS-IS vs OSPF).

     

    this is why it would appear this track is so often brushed aside.  its a damn shame too since IOS-XR is likely going to be the future of cisco OS's (long term) based on how well Juniper turning JunOS into its only OS has worked out for them.
