MPLS Traffic Engineering:: Part – 1 :: Theory

Whenever data is moved and we want the data not to follow the routing protocol dedicated path but to redirect to the path which we select for the traffic to follow. When we determined the path for traffic or data to follow so there are some concept on which Multiprotocol Label Switching - Traffic Engineering (MPLS-TE) is based:

When Routing Protocol is configured on a node it results about the interface parameters like Bandwidth information:

1. MPLS-TE also gives us some information like Bandwidth of the link, how much bandwidth is left (remaining) or Bandwidth is available. Basically it gives the link properties (all these are link constraints).

2. Protocol is needed which carry information and these information are carried by Link State Protocol either OSPF or IS-IS.

3. Constraint based SPF or Path Calculation algorithm is needed for the determination of best path to various routes. This CBSPF use many constraints for path selection other than bandwidth.

4. We have to make sure that the connectivity is available on that path which is selected for traffic. Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) is used to reserve bandwidth on the path. For example, we need 10 Mbps on a link, so RSVP ensures this much of bandwidth & RSVP also do the label, changing end-to-end changing (information).

Path Message: Which ensure Bandwidth?
Reserve Message: Confirmation of Bandwidth



In TE, the tunnel headed router decided which path the traffic should follow

a: The LSP Path/Tunnel is one way

b: TE Tunnel configuration is done on Head router, that’s why one way

c: We can use RSVP and LDP parallel like some traffic will pass through tunnel which will use Tunnel Label while some traffic will pass out of Tunnel which will use LDP Label.

d: We can have multiple Tunnels so we can have more than one label.



e: In MPLS TE we basically decided: How to allow the traffic in tunnel means How to route the traffic to the tunnel? & How to feed the traffic in Tunnel?

f: In TE we basically engineer, Like we select another path other than the path which is selected by routing protocols. Routing protocols select best path using only metric which TE use many other parameters for it.

I hope this will be informative for you !

Cheers :)

Polarising filters are a must-have accessory for any landscape photographer.
Make a list of your requirements, and then choose the right model for yourself.

The SX40 is the type of camera that can fill any photographer's needs because of the features built into it.

In other words, it enables you to carry on working when not connected to the internet, a feature
being introduced in the next few weeks. The NP-NF310 retails
around $350 and features an ultra fast start-up speed (under 3 seconds) and
a 9+ hour battery life. Chromebooks, made their
debut in 2011 with some good promise.

Both services offer extra storage space for small fees if you need more.
This removes mold, dirt, fungi or other debris
from entering the home. The devices must be hooked to a power source and be connected to
WI-FI for it to automatically back up.

But, with the most recent turn of events, the i - Phone 5 has
made a landmark in the smartphone industry. Because we're functioning off of absolutely nothing more than pure rumors and speculation, I might be looking at as well much into this and the i - Phone start has been and will carry on to be delayed for simple and extremely evident factors. Leaving the Wi-Fi option turned on will very quickly drain the battery on the Galaxy S.

It is a GPS Smartphone and enabled with A-GPS with Google Maps allowing you to navigate through your city, or an unknown one, with ease.
Samsung, the New York Times, is reporting, is set to offer
for sale the Samsung Galaxy S IV which will offer automatic scrolling
by monitoring eye movements. 99 for a 5 GB limit,
and 5 cents for every additional MB that is used.

It's so small so you can bring it when you travel around. Could it be that the big media companies want to keep the two seperate on purpose. Air - Play will also be coming quickly on Airplay-enabled speakers and stereo methods.
