how a typical MPLS network looks?

MPLS network contains Label Switch Routers(LSR). These routers are capable of understanding MPLS labels and of receiving and transmitting the labeled packet.
There are three kinds of Label Switch Routers present in the MPLS Network:-
Ingress LSR: These routers are present at the beginning of the MPLS network. Their job is to receive unlabeled IP packet and push the label on top of it.
Egress LSR: These routers are present at the end of the MPLS network. Their job is to pop the label from the incoming packet and forward the packet as an IP packet.
Intermediate LSR: These routers are present in between the above two routers. Their job is to receive the labeled packet, swap the label of the packet and forward it to the next hop. They are responsible for the MPLS forwarding of the packet.
