In the Internet, the traffic crosses between two to eight autonomous systems before reaching its destination. Consequently, end-to-end quality of service requires provisioning across more than one domain. This paper proposes a new scheme for introducing MPLS technology into an inter-domain environment. Results obtained using the OPNET simulation platform show that extending MPLS across AS boundaries can improve the QoS perceived by the end users. This means that inter-domain traffic engineering is a promising solution for a QoS aware Internet.
