HI Lijesh, [Pls Rate if HELPS]

CPE ==> 4 Routers

MPLS Cloud:

PE ==> 3 Routers

CPE1 via E-BGP to PE1

CPE2 via E-BGP to PE1

CPE3 via E-BGP to PE2

CPE4 via E-BGP to PE2

Inside MPLS Cloud:

PE1 via MP-IBGP to PE2 (vice-versa)

PE1 to P1 (OSPF Sync)

PE2 to P1 (OSPF Sync)

Neverthless, investing in Physical Routers => You can use Dynamips the Virtual Router Setup.

With this you simulate with CISCO 7206 Router with latest IOS Release.

Do Rate if HELPS

Best Regards,
