You want to ensure that your RSVP LSPs are following a particular path across the network. Which RSVP object ensures that your desire will be met? A. explicit route object B. record route object C. session object D. traffic specification object A
Once the Path message reaches the destination it replies with a __________. A. ResvConfirm Message B. Hello Message C. Resv message D. Interserv Flowspec C
A Resv is the acknowledgement that the reservation has been accepted end to end. What mechanism use by the egress tunnel router to signal headend tunnel? Explicit route order
The Headend tunnel router sends a Path Message per tunnel to its neighbor every __ seconds? A. 5 B. 10 C. 30 D. 20 C
What 2 messages are sent along the path to tear down the tunnel? PathTer, and ResvTer
This MPLS TE optional mechanism allows LSPs to share bandwidth with itself. Shared Explicit Reservation Style.
This feature of MPLS TE prevents the loss of data during tunnel re-optimization or a change in tunnel parameters. make before break
When a MPLE TE tunnel needs to be built across multiple areas or an intra-area tunnel you must use explicate path with _______________ ERO. Loose This is used when the headend does not have routing past its own area and must rely on the ARB to complete the LSP tunnel to the egress LER.
What 3 methods are used to forward traffic down the MPLS tunnels? static route, policy routing, and autoroute.
This routing feature of MPLS TE modifies the shortest path tree on the tunnel head-end LSR before the best routes are selected by the SPF. The path toward the tunnel tail-end LSR is replaced by a direct link created by the MPLS TE tunnel in the SPF tree. autoroute
This mechanism can be configured on a per-LSP basis that monitor the interface rate and periodically resize the TE tunnel bandwidth. Auto bandwidth
MPLS TE has the ability to mitigate packet loss associated with link and node failures using this predefined protection schemes know as ___________. FRR
What are the 2 protection schemes that can be implemented with Fast Reroute FRR? Path protection, Local protection Local is more scalable
What are the advantages of Local protection? Fast failure recovery,1:N scalability,Less consumption of network state
During a failure the PLR encapsulates the LSP onto the FRR tunnel to the___________. Nhop
True or False: When you are using Node Protection of downstream nodes you automatically are protecting the links of the node. true
