There is often a need to provide large aggregates of bandwidth that are best provided using parallel links between routers or carrying traffic over multiple MPLS Label Switched Paths (LSPs). In core networks, there is often no alternative since the aggregate capacities of core networks today far exceed the capacity of a single physical link or a single packet-processing element.
