Abstract: Fast ReRoute (FRR) presents network operators with an alternative for achieving sub-second recovery from link and node failures in the network.

In this presentation, we will briefly cover the different high-availability (HA) mechanisms available today (including FRR), present the different approaches that vendors are pursuing to implement this technology, and discuss Qwest\'s motivation behind deploying FRR and some of the lessons learned. In conclusion, we make recommendations to other operators who might be considering the deployment of FRR in their networks.
