Transport multiple protocol label switching (transport-MPLS, T-MPLS) is one of networking schemes for packet transport network (PTN). It specifies a connection-oriented, packet-switched architecture for carrier class Ethernet. In order to evaluate the performance of T-MPLS network, we have to apply this technology to the real network topology with Internet-bound traffic (e.g., VoIP, P2P, Http). In this paper, we first design the functional architecture and interface of T-MPLS network. Then a novel simulation test bed based on 11-node topology of European Cost239 model is implemented. Most of protocols are realized and the characteristics of packet transport network are verified via numerical simulation.
