I need help choosing a MPLS Customer Edge Router. I was thinking about the cisco 800 series, but using the feature navigator I could not find out if the ios has mpls capabilities. ¿Which is the smallest and cheapest Cisco Router with MPLS Capabilities?
Thanks in advance,
unless you are trying to setup a Carrier supporting Carrier scenario you don't need to run MPLS on the CE router
so the commands
They Are not needed and they can be skipped
Be also aware that if you are going to run OSPF as PE-CE protocol you need to configure the PE nodes appropriately.
The OSPF process-id has to match on local VRF site and remote VRF siteto see remote site OSPF routes as O IA (inter area) otherwise they will be seen as O E2 or O E1 (external routes)
Also, you are expected to use area 0 with PE router (the so called superbackbone area) in order to be able to use multiple OSPF areas on CE router
Hope to help
