Abstract: Multi-Protocol Label Switching is useful in managing multimedia traffic when some links are too congested; MPLS Traffic Engineering is a growing implementation in today's service provider networks. In This paper we propose an improvement of MPLS-TE called EMPLS-TE, it is based on a modification of operation of Forwarding Equivalence Class (FEC) in order to provide the quality of service to stream multimedia. The performance of the EMPLS-TE is evaluated by a simulation model under a variety of network conditions. We also compare its performance with that of unmodified MPLS-TE and MPLS. We demonstrate how a small change to the MPLS-TE protocol can lead to significantly improved performance results. We present a comparative analysis between MPLS, MPLS-TE and Enhanced MPLS-TE (EMPLS-TE). Our proposed EMPLS-TE has a performance advantageous for multimedia applications in their movement in a congested and dense environment. EMPLS-TE defines paths for network traffic based on certain quality of service. The simulation study is conducted in this paper; it is a means to illustrate the benefits of using this Enhanced MPLS-TE for multimedia applications.
