Krishnan Axiowave Networks P. Cheval Alcatel J. Heinanen Song Networks May 2002 Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) Support of Differentiated Services Status of this Memo This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for improvements. Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state and status of this protocol. Distribution of this memo is unlimited. Copyright Notice Copyright (C) The Internet Society (2002). All Rights Reserved. Abstract This document defines a flexible solution for support of Differentiated Services (Diff-Serv) over Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) networks. This solution allows the MPLS network administrator to select how Diff-Serv Behavior Aggregates (BAs) are mapped onto Label Switched Paths (LSPs) so that he/she can best match the Diff-Serv, Traffic Engineering and protection objectives within his/her particular network. For instance, this solution allows the network administrator to decide whether different sets of BAs are to be mapped onto the same LSP or mapped onto separate LSPs. Le Faucheur, et. al.
