I have a requirement of an extranet solution (ASP model) where many customer will be connected to a central site. The spoke sites do not talk to each other, not even through the central site. One option is to use 1 VRF at the central site and import routes from all other spokes sites (different RD and RT at the spopke sites). This has been rules out. so now my other alternative is to use multiple vrf on a single access link (ethernet in this case) between the CE and PE. I was thinking of using vrf-lite at the central site, but few concepts I am not clear about.
1) can i get away without using vrf-lite on the central site. PE configures individual vrf for each 1.q interface, but CE just uses 1.q without any vrf. For start I am going to have only two/three sites, so I can either map the subinterface to a separate LAN port or i could do .1q on a single LAN int and map it to the WAN subinterface. Maybe this is not the best solution,but I do not want to go for an unnecessary solution.
2) what are the advantages and disadvantages of using vrf-lite vs no vrf (if it is possible) in this scenario.
Attached is a diagram.
