In short, all three platforms support MPLS. You’ll find a lot more information on MPLS at

Re: Which Platforms can support MPLS deployment?

I think that we need to clarify what "support MPLS" means. My knowledge may be dated but as of two months ago, if you are talking about running LDP on the Catalyst switches (with MSFC or RSM) I am almost 100% sure none of the Catalyst support it. If you are talking about doing route redistribution to a MPLS enabled router then as long as you are running either MBGP, OSPF or RIP you would be in good shape. If someone has a more specific link then what was provided that specifies the ability to have a Catalyst switch as a PE router (running LDP) then I would be very interested in that information. Otherwise I would be careful in what role your Catalyst switches are going to perform in your MPLS deployment.

Hope this Helps
