  1. For r1 why is untagged?
    Similar for r3 why is untagged?

  2. That’s what this tutorial is about…filtering tags so not all prefixes get a tag. R2 only sends a tag for /32 to R1 and R3, not for or

  3. TDP is the old Cisco equivalent protocol for LDP. LDP is an IETF standard. On older IOS versions, TDP is the default. Nowadays LDP is the default. There is a command to change the protocol:

    R1(config)#mpls label protocol ?
      ldp  Use LDP (default)
      tdp  Use TDP

  4. Hi Rene,

    I am little bit confused that where we can use the label filtering in Production network .I am looking for scenario where we deploy it . Thx


  5. Hi Zaman,

    Think of an MPLS VPN network where we have PE and CE routers. The PE routers only require an LSP (Label Switched Path) between their loopback interfaces and the /32 IP address that is configured on these loopback interfaces. These are the IP addresses that are used for the next hops in BGP.

    By default, LDP creates and advertises a label for each and every prefix that is learned. This increases memory usage but also the number of advertisements between peers. If you only advertise labels for the LSPs that you need, you reduce convergence time and memory usage.
