Eliminating Blind Spots and Enhancing Monitoring in the Presence of MPLS

Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) operates at a layer that is generally considered to lie between traditional definitions of layer 2 (data link layer) and layer 3 (network layer), and thus is often referred to as a “layer 2.5” protocol. But the benefits of MPLS come with a price tag of reduced visibility of monitoring and security tools that were not designed to handle “layer 2.5” protocols.

OpenFlow: The Next Big Network Idea?

Although similar to NetFlow in name, that’s where the similarities end. OpenFlow is an open-source programmable protocol to implement the concept of software-defined networking.  Like cloud abstracts storage, and virtualization separates apps from servers, software-defined networking tries to decouple packet-routing intelligence from the communication infrastructure.
