Multi-Topology (MT) routing is supported in IP networks with the use of MT-aware IGPs. It would be advantageous for Communications Service Providers (CSPs) to support an MPLS Multi-Topology (MPLS-MT) environment. The benefits of MPLS-MT technology are features for various network scenarios, including:

LDP Extensions for Multi-Topology
Multi-Topology (MT) routing is supported in IP networks with the use of MT-aware IGPs. In order to provide MT routing within Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) networks, new extensions are required.
This document describes the LDP protocol extensions required to support MT routing in an MPLS environment.
