MPLS has received considerable attention as a protocol for transporting IP packets while providing traffic engineering. It requires label distribution, which represents a significant overhead when processing connectionless traffic. This paper describes a new protocol called subIP which efficiently provides connectionless service to IP traffic while remaining the simplicity of MPLS packet forwarding. When used in conjunction with a concept called multiple topology routing, which allows multiple… CONTINUE READING
