in mpls forwarding-tabe...

I have a question about mpls forwarding-table in cisco devics

I created a l2 virtual circuit between 2 PE.

and I entered the command that show mpls forwardint-table.

and I counld see the like below

local lavel-40, outgoing-untagged l2ckt(401), next-hop point2point

Why L2ckt has no label?

in my thinking, It must be assigned label to switch to peer PE device

You may need more routers to emulate MPLS. What you are seeing is a behavior called PHP (Penultimate Hop Popping) on which the label is popped off at the hop before the egress router.

I know the PHP concept, But I wondered that why L2 ckt displayed no label in show mpls forwarding-table?

It is different no label(untagged) and pop tag(this mean that it works as PHP)
