Transporting vlans across a MPLS network

Unanswered Question
Jul 2nd, 2007


How do you transport vlans across a MPLS network ? MPLS ATom or L2TPv3 ?

What about bridge-groups ? Does it have to go through ethernet interfaces ?

Any help appreciated.


I have this problem too.

Ethernet over MPLS allows for transport of Ethernet traffic from a source 802.1Q VLAN to a destination 802.1Q VLAN over a core MPLS network, by mapping these VLANs to MPLS LSPs. Ethernet over MPLS uses the LDP to dynamically set up and tear down LSPs over the core MPLS network for dynamic service provisioning.
