Folks, to my understanding VPLS is L2 VPN artchitecture. I thought that the idea here is that by using VPLS customers can gain connectivity to other sites using a layer 2 switch as the CPE(Customer Premise Equipment).
If that is the case, why this slide explaining VPLS shows the CPE devices as routers as well? Does it make sense? If have a router as a CPE shouldn't I be looking into L3 VPN technologies?
