Dr. Jorge A. Cobb
Multi-Protocol Label
Switching

Background
\ue000It was meant to improve routing performance on the
Internet
\u2022Routing is difficult using CIDR (longest prefix
matching)
\ue000MPLS is similar to virtual circuits
\u2022Only a fixed-sized label is used (like a VCID) with local
scope
\ue000It is very datagram oriented though
\u2022It uses IP addressing and IP routing protocols
3
What is it good for?
\ue000To enable IP capability on devices that cannot
handle IP traffic
\ue000Forward packets along \u201cexplicit routes\u201d (pre-
calculated routes not used in \u201cregular\u201d routing)
\ue000To support certain virtual private network services
\ue000Note: \u201cperformance\u201d is not above
\u2022Router hardware-software have improved so much is
not an issue anymore
