Recently there has been several literatures about congestion control in an Unicast/Multicast environment and also some authors tried to be exhaustive as they discussed about managing Quality of Service (QoS) under DiffServ and IntServ. Although Multi-Protocol label Switching (MPLS)Traffic and routing control, and as well as IPv6 control QoS were discussed by certain researchers these decades, however finding a paper about MPLS and the way to control QoS for IPv6 is quite difficult. MPLS routing control and multicast transmission are concerned with the handling of traffic flows during normal predictable network conditions. Overload control addresses the handling of traffic flows during unexpected or unusual conditions such as holidays, catastrophes (e.g., earthquakes), or equipments failures.
