Setting up signaled LSPs

An LSP consists of an actual path of MPLS routers through a network, as well as the characteristics of the path, including bandwidth allocations and routing metrics.

Signaled LSPs are configured at the ingress LER. When you enable a signaled LSP, RSVP causes resources to be allocated on the other routers in the LSP.

Configuring a signaled LSP consists of the following tasks:
  • Specifying a path for the LSP to follow (optional)
  • Setting parameters for the signaled LSP
  • Specifying which packets are to be forwarded along the LSP (optional)
