Re: Possible explanations for a large hop in latency

The explanation I got, was that the latency seen at the first hop was actually a reply from the last hop in the path across their MPLS network. Hence, all the following hops had very similar latency.
This is standard for MPLS, the ICMP TTL expire message is sent along the LSP and returned via the router at the end of the LSP.
