Abstract
This paper integrates a functional transport and control layer network architecture for MPLS emphasizing Traffic Engineering concepts such as the specification and provisioning of end-to-end QoS service layer agreements. MPLS transport networks are provisioned considering administrator-defined policies on bandwidth allocation, security, and accounting techniques. The MPLS architecture consists of the transport and control layer networks. The transport layer network is concerned with configuration, packet forwarding, signaling, adaptation to higher layers, and support of higher layers. The control layer network is concerned with policy configuration, management, distribution, definitions, schemas, elements, settings, and enforcement.
