Extending a MPLS VRF from a local to a remote location

Unanswered Question
Feb 9th, 2010

I am building a L3 MPLS network in our configuration center in Chicago.  The challenge at hand is that during user acceptance testing of all applications a group of individual will need to travel from So. Florida to Chicago and our management would like to test some/all these applications remotely.  What will be the best way to extend the VRF from one location to another.  My original thought is to request a dark fiber from the service provider and extend the CE device to our lab. 

Any ideas....

I have this problem too.

If you use this fiber and configure the interface of router in Chicago Center to belong a VRF the traffic work, only for this VRF. However you will not be extending your domain MPLS until the other point. Ideally, is necessary all sets to participate in the infrastructure domain and thus can configure any MPLS VPNs as necessary.
