How to configure MPLS TE on S series switches

13

Multiprotocol Label Switching Traffic engineering (MPLS TE) can prevent congestion caused by improper resource allocation by allocating some traffic to idle links, allowing network traffic to be allocated properly.
The MPLS TE configurations on different switch models are the same. For details, see "CLI-based Configuration > Configuration Guide - MPLS > MPLS TE Configuration" in S7700&S9700 V200R010C00 Product Documentation.

How to check the path of an MPLS TE tunnel on S series switches
For S series switches (except the S1700), run the display mpls te tunnel path command to check the path of an MPLS TE tunnel after the mpls te record-route label command is configured in the tunnel view. display mpls te tunnel path Tunnel Interface Name : Tunnel6/0/0 Lsp ID : 23.23.23.23 :2 Hop Information Hop 0 3.23.24.1 Hop 1 3.23.24.2 Label 1024 Hop 2 2.2.2.2

Does an AR support MPLS TE
Support for MPLS TE: - The AR120&AR150&AR160&AR200&AR500&AR510 do not support MPLS TE. - The AR120-S&AR150-S&AR160-S&AR200-S do not support MPLS TE. Other -S models support MPLS TE starting from V200R005C10. - The AR530 and AR550 do not support MPLS TE. - Other models support MPLS TE starting from V200R002C01.

What is MPLS VPN on S series switches
MPLS VPN on S series switches (except S1700 switches): The BGP/MPLS IP VPN model consists of the following parts: Customer Edge (CE): an edge device on a customer network. A CE provides interfaces that are directly connected to an SP network. A CE can be a router, switch, or host. In most cases, CEs cannot detect VPNs and do not need to support MPLS. Provider Edge (PE): an edge device on an SP network, which is directly connected to a CE. On the MPLS network, all handlings related to the VPN are performed on a PE, so the requirement on the PE performance is high. Provider (P): a backbone device on an SP network, which is not directly connected to CEs. A P device only needs to provide basic MPLS forwarding capabilities, without maintaining VPN information. PEs and Ps are managed by SPs. CEs are managed by users unless the users entrust CE management to SPs. A PE can be connected to multiple CEs. A CE can be connected to multiple PEs of the same SP or of different SPs.
