MikroTik RouterOS supports MPLS. All MikroTik RouterBOARD hardware products support MPLS.

General Porperties

Property Description
dynamic-label-range (range of integer[16..1048575]; Default: 16-1048575) Range of Label numbers used for dynamic allocation. First 16 labels are reserved for special purposes (as defined in RFC). If you intend to configure labels statically then adjust dynamic default range not to include numbers that will be used in static configuration.
propagate-ttl (yes | no; Default: yes) Whether to copy TTL values from IP header to MPLS header. If this option is set to no then hops inside MPLS cloud will be invisible from traceroutes.

Forwarding Table

Sub-menu: /mpls forwarding-table

Entries in this sub-menu shows label bindings for specific routes that will be used in MPLS label switching


Sub-menu: /mpls interface

This menu allows to configure MTUs including MPLS headers that interface can forward without fragmentation.


Note: If Ethernet card does not support Jumbo frames, then MPLS MTU for all interfaces on all devices participating in LSP should be set to 1500


Property Description
comment (string; Default: ) Short description of the interface
disabled (yes | no; Default: no) If set to yes then this configuration is ignored.
interface (string | all; Default: all) Interface name to which apply settings. If set to all then the same config will be used for every interface if there is no specific configuration for the interface.
mpls-mtu (integer [512..65535]; Default: 1508) Option represents how big packets can be carried over the interface with added MPLS labels. Read More >>

Local Bindings

Sub-menu: /mpls local-bindings

This sub-menu shows labels bound to the routes locally in the router

Remote Bindings

Sub-menu: /mpls remote-bindings

Sub-menu shows label bindings for routes received from other routers. This table is used to build Forwarding Table
