Multi-Protocol Label Switching is useful in managing multimedia traffic when some links are too congested; MPLS Traffic Engineering is a growing implementation in today's service provider networks. In this paper, the authors propose an improvement of MPLS-TE called EMPLS-TE, it is based on a modification of operation of Forwarding Equivalence Class (FEC) in order to provide the quality of service to stream multimedia. The performance of the EMPLS-TE is evaluated by a simulation model under a variety of network conditions. They also compare its performance with that of unmodified MPLS-TE and MPLS.
