Design, configure, and manage MPLS TE to optimize network
Almost every busy network backbone has some congested links while
others remain underutilized. That's because shortest-path routing
protocols send traffic down the path that is shortest without
considering other network parameters, such as utilization and
traffic demands. Using Traffic Engineering (TE), network
operators can redistribute packet flows to attain more uniform
distribution across all links. Forcing traffic onto specific
pathways allows you to get the most out of your existing network
capacity while making it easier to deliver consistent… more…
