    Terminology for MPLS Topics

    Certain terms used with MPLS, such as the names of messages, are often expressed in the RFCs and other sources either with initial uppercase letters or all uppercase letters. For improved readability, those terms are represented in lowercase in this chapter. Table 1 lists the terms and some of their variant spellings.
