MPLS Service

Unanswered Question
Jan 9th, 2009


I would like to know how everyone does their MPLS design. Ideally, you put all sites on one single MPLS service provider, e.g. ATT, with single access link. Data centers will have two access links for redundancy.

However, what if I want to have two MPLS service providers, put half of the sites on one MPLS cloud and another half on the second MPLS cloud? How would you do the routing between them? ATT stated that they would not exchange routes to another SP. I would like to know if anyone has two MPLS SP and how they do it.


I have this problem too.

What we do is terminate the one Service Provider on one router, and then terminate the other service provider on another and share routes between the two routers through your own infrastructure.

This isn't the only design but one that we have implemented. Fri, 01/09/2009 - 09:10

Ok, that's what I am thinking about doing too. Anyone else has two MPLS service providers?
