Abstract:


Mapping between two heterogeneous networks, Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) and IEEE 802.11e is choice of future technology as it has ability to perform traffic engineering and create the corresponds between LSP (Label Switch Path) and AC (Access Category). This paper discusses the mapping between IEEE 802.11 MPLS integration to achieve quality of service on MPLS networks. MPLS and 802.11e is very useful approach for today’s internet to ensure the Quality of service the end to end. It talks about different approaches to map 802.11e Access Categories (AC) to Label Switched Path (LSP) and their advantages. It then introduces the concept of encapsulated LSPs to achieve future QoS, which requires further study to examine its practicability.
