In a Cisco or Juniper environment that is using LDP signaling to establish LDP LSPs, MPLS Manager discovers the PE and P devices and the LDP speakers that are associated with the LSPs. All links in the environment have interior gateway protocol adjacencies as well as LDP adjacencies. The complete MPLS forwarding path for an LDP LSP is determined by IP forwarding.

MPLS Manager creates an LdpProtocolEndpoint instance for each discovered LDP speaker that is associated with an LDP LSP. It sets the instance’s IsTargetedPeer attribute to False, to indicates that this instance’s termination point is to a non-targeted peer.
