Introduction

This page is an attempt to put together a lab setup for the testing of MPLS / VPLS as well as Traffic Engineering. This is not an attempt to explain how MPLS works, rather it is to promote discussion around the operation of MPLS. Before working through this lab you should first familiarise yourself with the concepts in this WIKI article http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/MPLSVPLS as most of the setup has been based around those concepts.
