To provide a reliable backbone network, fault tolerance should be considered in the network design. Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) based backbone network, is used to provide Traffic Engineering (TE) and high speed networking. The fault-tolerant issue which is one of the aspects of QoS, focuses on how to protect the traffic of a Label Switched Paths (LSP) against node and link failures. Fault tolerance techniques are very useful to maintain the survivability of the network by recovering from failure within acceptable delay and minimum packet loss while efficiently utilizing network resources.
