Abstract

We define an `explicit route' as a route which is explicitly specified as a sequence of hops rather than being determined solely by conventional routing algorithms on a hop by hop basis. Using the explicit route object proposed for use in RSVP [1] and the ability to bind MPLS labels to RSVP flows [2] we describe how explicit routes may be set up in an MPLS environment. The resulting label switched paths may have associated resource reservations, or may be purely best effort.
