Routing Using Matching and Calculated LSP Next Hops
Normally, a route table prefix is associated with a gateway or next hop IP address.
Matching LSP next hop
An LSP is considered matching with respect to an FEC if it has been associated with that FEC via LDP or RSVP-TE. An example of this is an IPv4 prefix for which a matching label mapping has been received by LDP. Matching LSPs are supported for all route origin types.
Calculated LSP next hop
An LSP is considered calculated with respect to an FEC if it has been associated with that FEC through a routing protocol. Both OSPF and BGP can perform the calculations necessary to associate a route table prefix with an LSP next hop.
Matching and Calculated LSP Next Hops illustrates the concept of matching and calculated LSPs.
Label Bindings for LSR A describes the label bindings in the MPLS forwarding table for LSR A that are maintained for FECs reachable via LSR A to LSR C, shown in Matching and Calculated LSP Next Hops.
