MPLS TE technology overview - Chapter 2 of 'QoS for IP/MPLS Networks'

This review of Multiprotocol Label Switching Traffic Engineering (MPLS TE) from the Cisco Press book "QoS for IP/MPLS Networks" by Santiago Alvarez describes MPLS TE basics. description includes the details of TE information distribution, path computation, and the signaling of TE LSPs. The subsequent sections present how Differentiated Services (DiffServ)-Aware traffic engineering (DS-TE) helps integrate the implementation of DiffServ and MPLS TE. This chapter closes with a review of the fast reroute capabilities in MPLS TE.
