    - MPLS (Multi Protocol Label Switching) is a label that added in front of each packet and the routing is done on the basis of this label instead of the destination address.

    - The label is used as an index for determining which outgoing line and new label is to be used. This new label contains the address of next MPLS router.

    - This label acts as an index into an internal table. Because of that it becomes very easy to find the correct output line by referring the table.

    - In MPLS, each packet carries a virtual circuit identifier, called label.

    - MPLS is a data-carrying mechanism which emulates some properties of a circuit-switched network over a packet-switched network.
