Isocore Announces Successful Interoperability Testing of Major Novel Network Features.

Isocore tests the resilient Point-To-Multipoint MPLS services, Comprehensive Ethernet OAM, VPLS Auto-discovery, redundant Pseudowires and Path Computation Element

RESTON, Va. -- This year, MPLS 2009 delegates will witness the interoperability of resilient multipoint MPLS transport, a comprehensive Ethernet OAM feature-set, dynamic discovery of VPLS provider edge nodes, and path computation element (PCE) - path computation client (PCC) communication for inter-domain applications and signaling LSPs through different vendor nodes along the single Inter-AS path.

The Fall 2009 LEC testing successfully targeted the interoperability of Virtual Private LAN Services (VPLS) using BGP-based auto-discovery methods, comprehensive Ethernet OAM (IEEE 802.3ah, IEEE 802.1ag and ITU-T Y.1731) for fault and performance monitoring across multiple implementations. The successful Ethernet OAM functionality was verified across maintenance domains including the customer layer 2 domains and across the provider-provisioned LDP signaled VPLS bridge domain. The testing further investigated Provider Backbone Bridging extensions to VPLS (PBB-VPLS) interworking as one of the viable options for scaling Carrier Ethernet networks. During the tests, Isocore also validated P2MP LSP interoperability using complex topologies and IPv6/IPv4 multicast traffic with fast reroute recovery.

MPLS2009 Public Interoperability Demonstration will take place following the MPLS2009 International Conference ( at Isocore, and it will showcase the results of this recently concluded testing. Additional information is available at:

Vendors participating in the Isocore testing included Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU), Brocade Communication Systems (NASDAQ GS:BRCD), Cisco Systems (NASDAQ: CSCO), Hitachi, Ltd. (NYSE: HIT) IP Infusion (independently operated subsidiary of ACCESS Co., Ltd.), IXIA (NASDAQ: XXIA), Juniper Networks (NASDAQ: JNPR), NEC (NQB: NIPNY), and on-site participation and support by NTT.
