I have a 4500 in my lab. It will do tag switching, but does not
support ldp. I put together an mpls lab as I am starting to study for the
SP lab. I have two 3620's with atm and a 2651. If you are going to use
the 3620's for atm you have to get a fairly new hardware rev. The cisco
site has the details. I found 12.2T ios's for both the 3620's and the
2651's that do ldp.
