I would need some advice on how to exchange route between 2 different vendor MPLS.

See attach MPLS.gif for the proposed connection.

1. Primary MPLS provider is Vendor "A"

2. Due to no coverage from vendor "A", we must use Vendor "B" to connect Site "A"

3. Vendor "B" managed both PE and CE

4. Vendor "B" WAN connection between Country "A" and Site "A" is using eBGP

5. Vendor "A" WAN connection between Country "A" and Country "B" and "C" are using eBGP

6. If I install a router "N1" at Country "A" to protect internal network.


Q1. How I do exchange route between N1 and CE ?

Q2. Which type of routing protocol is the best for this situation? eigrp? igrp? ospf? static?

Q3. Do I need to have some distribution list?

Kindly please advice.

You can configure static route to match any destination on the other side on the N1 and CE routers. Another option would be to use eigrp as a routing protocol for this. To configure a distribution list or not depends on what routes you want to advertize on the other side.
