About the Author

Ina Minei is a network protocols engineer at JuniperNetworks whose focus is MPLS protocols and applications,DiffServ-aware traffic engineering and network convergence. She hashelped to implement these and other features into the JUNOSoperating system. She is active in industry forums, has presentedMPLS tutorials at the North American Network Operators' Groupconference and is a regular contributor to the IETF. She is theauthor of Juniper Networks' whitepaper on Diffserv-aware trafficengineering. Prior to joining Juniper Networks, she worked forCisco Systems on the development of a next generation routeroperating system. Julian Lucek has worked with the Photonics ResearchDepartment at British Telecom where he co-built the world's firstall-optical regenerator before moving into the IP field to evaluatenew routing platforms. His current post is that of ConsultingEngineer for Juniper Networks working with major Service Providerson MPLS deployments. He is the author of many published papers inthe field of communications technology and holds several patents inthat area.
