  • Cisco Employee,

Load-balancing in the core is indeed based on the inner label (vc label) for EoMPLS.


So if the P router has many outbound interfaces for a given LSP, it will use that innner label to compute the hash value to select the outbound interface for that specific packet.


For an explanation on the control word please refer to the Martini encapsulation draft:

Hope this helps,
