About This Network Configuration Example

This network configuration example provides an overview of a Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) label-switched path (LSP) tunnel that enables you to send RSVP LSPs inside other RSVP LSPs. This enables a network administrator to provide traffic engineering from one end of the network to the other. A useful application for this feature is to connect customer edge (CE) routers with provider edge (PE) routers by using an RSVP LSP, and then tunnel this edge LSP inside a second RSVP LSP traveling across the network core.
