--Border Gateway Protocol. The predominant interdomain routing protocol used in IP networks.
--Forwarding Information Base. A table that contains a copy of the forwarding information in the IP routing table.
--A short, fixed-length identifier that tells switching nodes how the data (packets or cells) should be forwarded.
--An association between a label and a set of packets, which can be advertised to neighbors so that a label switched path can be established.
--The act of putting the first label on a packet.
--Label Distribution Protocol. The protocol that supports MPLS hop-by-hop forwarding by distributing bindings between labels and network prefixes.
--Label Forwarding Information Base. A data structure in which destinations and incoming labels are associated with outgoing interfaces and labels.
--label switching router. A Layer 3 router that forwards a packet based on the value of an identifier encapsulated in the packet.
--Multiprotocol Label Switching. An industry standard on which label switching is based.
--The forwarding of packets along normally routed paths using MPLS forwarding mechanisms.
--Routing Information Base. A common database containing all the routing protocols running on a router.
--Resource Reservation Protocol. A protocol for reserving network resources to provide quality of service guarantees to application flows.
--Techniques and processes used to cause routed traffic to travel through the network on a path other than the one that would have been chosen if standard routing methods were used.
--Virtual Private Network. A network that enables IP traffic to use tunneling to travel securely over a public TCP/IP network.
