MPLS with Diff-Serv

Posts: n/a

A basic question about the label in MPLS.

Normally, the label is used to forward the MPLS packet to the next
hop. I'm wondering how this behavior is maintained when the label
carries the Diff-Serv information (in the L-LSP mechanism).

Is the label always used to find the next hop when it carries Diff-

Thanks for your advice,

Bonjour Michelot,

> Serv?

RFC 3270 notices there is a combination between these both aspects
(see 1.5) "With L-LSPs, the label represents the combination of a FEC
and an OA".

But it will be interesting to have an example to illustrate that.

You're welcome
