Configuration

The network configuration may involve any of the following technologies:

  • MPLS interfaces

  • IP routing protocols

  • MPLS signaling protocols

  • Creation of LSPs

  • User-defined DiffServ classes of service

All of the above can be set up using the device-level EMS. Alternatively, the NMS user can specify the required configuration to generate the associated EMS scripts automatically. Another NMS scheme might involve the user interacting with a graphical topology map, clicking node-specific software options to select the appropriate setup.

Regardless of the setup method, the operator must carry out a fairly detailed set of steps to arrive at the situation depicted in our sample MPLS network.
