MPLS VPN over Ipv6

Answered Question
Oct 9th, 2008

I am trying to implement MPLS VPN's with IPV6. This is what I want:

1) There should not even be a single IPv4 address on the network.

2) Amongst P and PE's I want to use OSPF v3 for the distribution of labels.

3) Do the normal MP-BGP between PE's.

Is it possible to do it without any IPv4 on the core n/w.

If so then can someone gve me some links on how do I go about doing them.

Hello Saurav,

as far as I know this is not possible up to now.

6VPE allows to have VPNv6 over an MPLS/IPv4 core


Restrictions for Implementing IPv6 VPN over MPLS

6VPE supports an MPLS IPv4-signaled core. An MPLS IPv6-signaled core is not supported

Hope to help

The LDP extensions yet don't have support for distributing the labels for the IPV6 prefixes.

Yeps agreed I read it again and it seems the LDP is not supported with IPv6 thanks for replying. :-)
