I have a client that has an IP MPLS Core,with 2 12410 and 2 7609 as P's, full redundancy with Fibre Cores. They also have some aggregation 6506's (PE's). At this moment they are only using this network for Data services like L3, L2 VPNS, VPLS and internet to customers only. However, they have now decided to put Sigtran/SS7 on this network. They already have purchased Sigtran interfaces on the side of the GSM equipment i.e MSC's and HLR's etc
My question is ? Yes they do have an IP MPLS core and its working fine with services like L3,L2 VPNS . For them to be able to run Sigtran through their IP MPLS Core, what is needed in terms of configurations and Hardware in the IP MPLS network? I am asking or presuming they need Traffic engineering? QOS? what else ? Looking at the hardware inventory, i think its fine, i just need help on the configuration side. All links in the Core connect using Ge-WAN interfaces
I have attached the Inventory for the HW of the IP MPLS network .
Please have a look, any comments , advise will be highly appreciated, also any URLs ,useful Links will be good
