This document specifies the protocols and procedures for using BGP to advertise that a specified router has bound a specified MPLS label (or a specified sequence of MPLS labels, organized as a contiguous part of a label stack) to a specified address prefix. This is done by sending a BGP UPDATE message whose Network Layer Reachability Information field contains both the prefix and the MPLS label(s), and whose Next Hop field identifies the node at which said prefix is bound to said label(s). This document obsoletes RFC 3107.
