Building Reliable MPLS Networks Using a Path Protection Mechanism

  title={Building Reliable MPLS Networks Using a Path Protection Mechanism},
  author={Changcheng Huang},
It is expected that MPLS-based recovery could become a viable option for obtaining faster restoration than layer 3 rerouting. To deliver reliable service, however, MPLS requires a set of procedures to provide protection for the traffic carried on the label switched paths. In this article we propose a path protection mechanism that is simple, scalable, fast, and efficient. We describe in detail our design considerations, the communication of fault information to appropriate switching elements… CONTINUE READING
