There is also some good Juniper information available on the Juniper site

This Week: deploying MPLS

Or as book

MPLS in the SDN era

The first 2 are quite good for starters learning the mechanisms

With best regards

Hi, I totally agree.  I was just trying to learn about RSVP and it’s uses in a lab setting.  Call this more of a personal growth and improving of skills, I’m not trying to build anything production related.  I did build an LDP based environment and you’re right it was pretty straight forward and was in fact where I started.  So, no I’m not sure I need RSVP at all but it seemed important to learn.  I think I’ll take a step back, read the book suggested and bone up on the basics further first.

I understand how provider routers label switch packets and how provider edges use VRF instances and their distinguishers and targets to address each other.  Per the Juniper examples I have LDP and RSVP enabled on all the transit interfaces along with MPLS and obviously the correct interface families (MPLS) attached to the same transit interfaces.
