Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) Tunnels for Traffic Engineering
Routing of LSP (label switched path) tunnels over physical links
Routing of traffic demand flows (forwarding equivalence class, or, FEC) over LSP tunnels and links
Modification of LSP tunnel preferred/explicit routes and media requirements (Bandwidth constraints, QoS requirements, Priority and preemption, affinity/mask and include-any/include-all/exclude admin-groups)
Addition of Secondary/Standby Routes
Network grooming of tunnel paths
Configlets created based on added and modified tunnels
