When there is a failure in any system or link then the network must be capable enough to maintain all the actions and tasks that are to be implemented. This category of perfect network is said to be network pliability. The network pliability is the concept of automatic network recovery from various failures by rerouting the traffic from any sort of traffic from the failure and they can be converted back to the vigorous part of another network. The rerouting technique is quicker and the service intervening caused by the failure of the node is imperceptible to other network and the process tends to be very small. The fast rerouting is the procedure for path calculation and it is performed through tunnel to create vast routing area before the occurrence of failure. At present, Multi-protocol Label Switching (MPLS) turns out to be the innovative method for Internet service providers. MPLS is comprised of various attributes like traffic engineering performance and initiating quality of service. Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) fast reroute (FRR) is based on one-to-one or many-to-one backup methods. The Fast Reroute technique is the steganographic method for delineating the different MPLS traffic protection mechanisms. In this survey various techniques are projected for the fast rerouting in MPLS networks.
