Re: mpls

Hi,

MPLS stands for Multi Protocol Label Switching, its a way of switching packets based on labels (fast way of packet switching on backbones, plus the extra available features that it introduces), review this document and it'll supply you with the elementary facts:

Re: mpls

Hi,

Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) fuses the intelligence of routing with the performance of switching and provides significant benefits to networks with a pure IP architecture as well as those with IP and ATM or a mix of other Layer 2 technologies. MPLS technology is key to scalable virtual private networks (VPNs) and end-to-end quality of service (QoS), enabling efficient utilization of existing networks to meet future growth and rapid fault correction of link and node failure. The technology also helps deliver highly scalable, differentiated end-to-end IP services with simpler configuration, management, and provisioning for both Internet providers and subscribers.

INFO: : There are lot of CISCO Documents & Case Studies availaible in WEB for MPLS Implementation.

Reference Link provided by "mohammedmahmoud" will be very Helpful for the Beginners.CISCO - Support - Documentation Section has lot of Design Manuals, Configuration Guides, Troubleshooting Guides, etc.,

PLS RATE if HELPS

Best Regards,

Guru Prasad R
