The framework of wireless multiprotocol label switching (WMPLS) technology in applications of ad hoc networking and mobile ad hoc networking (MANET) are presented in this paper. WMPLS has been designed to be a homogeneous protocol to MPLS, GMPLS, and MPLambdaS, which are the strongest candidates for the next generation WAN technologies. This paper provides the framework of WMPLS and the signaling/control protocols to establish connection-oriented and connectionless label switched paths (LSPs) in mobile communication networks and ad hoc networks, and also provides a performance analysis compared to other wireless technologies.
