Preface

As the name of this book implies, the focus is on the switching of traffic though a network or networks. The term switching is also known in some parts of the industry as forwarding, relaying, and routing.

Internet Drafts: Work in Progress

In many of my explanations of label switching operations, I have relied on the Internet Request for Comments (RFCs) and draft standards, published by the Internet Society, and I thank this organization for making the RFCs available to the public. The draft standards are "works in progress," and usually change as they wind their way to an RFC (if indeed they become an RFC). A work in progress cannot be considered final, but many vendors use them in creating products for the marketplace. Notwithstanding, they are subject to change.

For all the Internet standards and draft standards the following applies:
