Abstract

Mobile MPLS is the extension of MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) for mobile environment. It can simultaneously benefit from both Mobile IP’s mobility support and MPLS’s quality of service support. These benefits are important to present and future mobile networks supporting mobile users’ increasing demand for various Internet services on the go. This article surveys the current status on Mobile MPLS research. Several proposals of Mobile MPLS are reviewed and discussed. This survey gives a perspective view of current Mobile MPLS research.
