This poster presents the traffic engineering (TE) capabilities of multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) networks. The study is carried on Pentium PCs running Linux and using open software. Results show that it is necessary to examine the flows in a MPLS network before setting up paths from a TE point of view. The study also suggests that proper planning with respect to mapping similar traffic types onto the same label switched path gives a better performance.
