Protection and Restoration in MPLS based Networks

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) is growing in popularity as a set of protocols for provisioning and managing core networks.[6] Multi-protocol label switching integrates label-swapping framework with network layer routing that allows flexibility in the delivery of new routing services, since it allows new services to be added without changing the basic forwarding mechanism ,this enables more sophisticated features such as traffic engineering to be implemented. Although the current routing algorithms are very robust and survivable, the amount of time they take to recover from a failure is significant, causing serious disruption of network services.
