In This work we describe MPLS (multi-protocol label switching) multicasting under a specific graph (graceful) labeling with the use of the specific multicast tree topology called caterpillar. The use of a caterpillar as the multicast tree is analyzed and compared with the other tree topologies under a multicast network metric. The labeling algorithm proposed uniquely assigns link labels based on the node numbering which in turn enables to give a sharp estimate to the time-to-live parameter and… CONTINUE READING
