MPLS over MPLS

Unanswered Question

Hi,


I wanted to run an MPLS cloud across to regional sites that are themselves connected via the service provider's MPLS. I don't want to merge MPLS domains, I want to run our cloud over the top (as you would with any other technology such as MPLS over frame or MPLS over ATM) i.e. MPLS over MPLS. I cannot find any references to this type of setup. Does anyone know if it is possible?


Thanks,

Andres

Hello Andres,

This would be possible using the mpls CsC ( Carrier supporting Carrier) architecture. Your mpls SP would act as the backbone carrier and you can run a mpls cloude through your regional locations.


the good book to reffer is :

Cisco - MPLS Configuration on Cisco IOS Software(2005)


Also,

Hope this helps.


Cheers,

Here is a link to a Cisco document that talks about running Enterprise MPLS over a carrriers MPLS network.


Use Case: Site-to-Site Communications Using MPLS L3VPN Services

This guide helps organizations deploy WAN services in order to connect remote locations over private cloud

Layer 3 VPN-based provider managed MPLS services.
