LOPEZ, Danilo A; HERNANDEZ, Cesar A  and  SALCEDO, Octavio J. Multicast Network Performance using Multiprotocol Label Switching Together with Signaling Standards. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2012, vol.23, n.6, pp.43-50. ISSN 0718-0764.

The present article shows the results of the evaluation of Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) as a technology for the transfer of multicast traffic (sending data from one source to several users) through the use of signaling protocols such as RSVP-TE. To identify the advantages of such an implementation, the setup in this work is compared to a multicast IP network based on the PIM-DM protocol. Simulations were carried out using software packages such as OPNET and GNS-3. It was found that MPLS+RSVP-TE offers greater advantages over other architectures. Some of these advantages include quicker link-failure response, shorter delays and less jitter, and also the possibility to reserve bandwidth for priority traffic.

Keywords : multicast network; multiprotocol label switching; signaling standards; traffic engineering.
