The recent surge in the development of new technologies, most especially in the field of mobile and wireless communications, requires the adequate maintenance and overall procurement of network infrastructures. this is due to a great deal of accelerating demand from Mobile users having access to real-time information such as data, voice and video services. Therefore, the operators and service providers require seamless integration of network protocols with an improved quality of service (QoS). This paper addresses the performance of multimedia services in Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) nodes and network models design using simulation approach. MPLS ensures the reliability of the communication minimizing the delays and enhancing the speed of packet transfer. It is valuable in its capability of providing Traffic Engineering (TE) for minimizing the congestion by efficient throughput. The verification of the MPLS model will be the focus of the performance evaluation. An elaborate description of MPLS and its principle of operation will be required. It will eventually address the challenges of packet loss, high latency, high operational cost, more bandwidth utilization, and poor QoS.
