Configuring MPLS TE

This section introduces you to the steps involved in the configuration of Cisco routers to implement MPLS TE. The first subsection identifies the stepwise procedure involved in the configuration of Cisco routers for TE. It is then followed by a subsection depicting the actual configuration process on a topology consisting of six routers in which multiple paths can be used for TE purposes from a headend to tailend router.

MPLS TE Configuration Flowchart

The configuration of Cisco routers for MPLS TE support can be described in a systematic flowchart as depicted in the top row of Figure 9-11. It is assumed that the network is already configured with an IGP for NLRI exchange as well as MPLS forwarding on the appropriate interfaces ...
