i hav the following setup in design stage..i need to analyse the viability & best options for the

n/w.It has 2 PE's over MPLS cloud, corresponding CE's at our end hooked upto a L3 6500

series.Cloud is running BGP , i would like to load balance between the link so that it

achieves around 35-55% load on either paths from L3 towards either CE's ,using

either ospf/eigrp on my side towards the cloud and then provider would be

redistributing this with their bgp.Am also looking to have a failover fallback to either CE's in

case any of the routes towards either PE's fail.

Thanks for any suggestion/help in advance on this!

any ideas over this design? to add on ..the igp(ospf possibly) would be run on the core switch.As usual CE's for both links would be controlled by the providers running BGP.Any suggestions on how to implement load sharing across the 2 links and also provide redundancy in case of route failures from any PE to CE path.

Thanks in advance!
