Abstract—The purpose of this paper is to examine how the Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) technology affects to the latency in an IP network when using different dynamic routing protocols. For the purposes of the study, a virtual IP network was created, in which was sequentially configured to work with Routing Information Protocol (RIP), Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) and Open Shortest Path First (OSPF). The studies were performed without configured and then with configured MPLS. Techniques, methods and tools used in the monitoring of IP networks were used during the study of the network.
