Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a protocol that makes it possible to provide virtual circuits through an IP network. This means that all the traffic from a specific source to its destination will all follow the same route. To do so, each packet gets a virtual circuit number, called a label. The label determines the packets queuing and forwarding through the network. A virtual circuit is called a Label Switched Path (LSP). A LSP has to be set up before use.
