MPLS: CISSP Cert Prep: 4 Communication and Network Security

Multiprotocol Packet Label Switching, or MPLS, uses a fixed-path approach to routing packets across a network. The first router to encounter a packet attaches a label to the packet that corresponds to a fixed path to the final destination. Other routers along the way then simply read the label on the packet and use that label to determine where the packet should go next, without performing any lookups. In this video, learn how MPLS networks function.
