Section: A MPLS Basics

Section A: MPLS Basics

This initial section introduces Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS). The basics of the MPLS data plane and control plane are covered in Chapters 2 and 3 respectively. Chapter 4 introduces the control plane and functional extensions to MPLS that create Generalized MPLS (GMPLS), and describes how those extensions are applicable to MPLS packet switching networks as well as the layer 1 optical networks more generally associated with GMPLS.

The material in these chapters, taken from MPLS Technology and Applications by Davie and Rekhter and The Internet and Its Protocols by Farrel, is intended as an overview and refresher. It does not give a detailed and thorough review of MPLS, and the reader should refer to the source texts for more details and deeper coverage.
