What is MPLS‐TP (MPLS Transport Profile)?

MPLS Transport Profile is utilized in packet-switched data networks. MPLS-TP is intended for utilization as a network layer technology in transport networks. MPLS-TP is to be dependent on the similar design standards of layered networking that are utilized in longstanding transport network technologies such as SDH, SONET and OTN. MPLS-TP is a minimal expense L2.5 innovation that gives QoS, end-to-end OA&M and protection switching. MPLS-TP permits LSPs and PWs to be signalled to utilize a control plane.
