Time: 10:45 am - 12:00 pm

Dear all, 

The Internet Measurement reading group will meet on Wednesday 1st.

In this session, Matthieu Gouel (Sorbonne Université, LIP6) will talk about MPLS in Internet topologies.

I encourage you to join us at 10:45 for a virtual coffee break, so that the talk begins at 11:00.


MPLS is now widely used by autonomous systems to carry IP packets through their network. In order to detect MPLS tunnels, multiple active measurement techniques have been developed.
In this reading group we talk about how to detect MPLS tunnels and how it affects Internet topologies with the support of multiple papers.

Paper list:

  • Revealing MPLS Tunnels Obscured from Traceroute (Benoit Donnet et. al.)
  • Unveiling the MPLS Structure on Internet Topology (Gabriel Davila Revelo et. al.)
  • Through the Wormhole: Tracking Invisible MPLS Tunnels (Yves Vanaubel et. al.)
  • TNT, Watch me Explode: A Light in the Dark for Revealing MPLS Tunnels (Yves Vanaubel et. al.)
