Re: voice over MPLS

Typically you would use MPLS Traffic Engineering to set up a guaranteed bandwidth LSP across the network, this would guarantee that the requested bandwidth is available end to end. Voice traffic could then be marked with a specific QOS using the EXP bits in the MPLS header, this traffic could then be queued in a low latency queue on each router along the path. The following URL outlines the configuration for this:
