Abstract

   A range of Management Information Base (MIB) modules has been
   developed to help model and manage the various aspects of
   Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) networks.  These MIB modules are
   defined in separate documents that focus on the specific areas of
   responsibility of the modules that they describe.

   This document describes the management architecture for MPLS and
   indicates the interrelationships between the different MIB modules
   used for MPLS network management.
