7206 as MPLS-PE router

Unanswered Question
Jul 10th, 2007

Can the 7206 be used as a MPLS PE router? I don't think it is common but is it effective?

I have this problem too.

Absolutely possible, and may be more common than you think. Note the real features and performances of 7200 are decided by the NPE used, not the chassis.

Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!

Totally agree with Paolo, we have many nodes with 7206 (NPE-G1) acting as an MPLS PE router with over than 200 customers with no problems.

Totally agree with Mohammed & Paolo,

We have 7206 VXR Router (NPE-G1) running as MPLS PE Router in most of the Sites.
