The framework of wireless multiprotocol label switching (WMPLS) technology in applications of broadband wireless mobile communications is presented here. WMPLS has been designed to be a homogeneous protocol to multiprotocol label switching (MPLS), Generalized MPLS (GMPLS), and MPLambdaS, which are the strongest candidates for next generation networking technologies. The protocol format of WMPLS closely resembles the original MPLS protocol architecture with wireless communication link reliability enhancements. Integrated & differentiated services can be provided in broadband mobile communications through the classification, queueing, and scheduling (CQS) mechanism of WMPLS systems. This paper provides the framework of WMPLS and its signaling protocols to establish forwarding equivalent class (FEC) communication label switching paths (LSPs).
