Chapter 1. Understanding Traffic Engineering with MPLS

Chapter 1. Understanding Traffic Engineering with MPLS

Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) has been getting a lot of attention in the past few years. It has been successfully deployed in a number of large networks, and it is being used to offer both Internet and virtual private network (VPN) services in networks around the world.

Most of the MPLS buzz has been around VPNs. Why? Because if you're a provider, it is a service you can sell to your customers.
