MRU is only locally significant. If an incoming packet belonging to a particular FEC (Forwarding Equivalence Class) exceeds the MRU calculated for that FEC, the packet will require fragmentation prior to it being transmitted on the outgoing interface. The MRU for each FEC varies depending on the MTU of the…
