Has anyone ever been crazy enough to attempt to enable MPLS on two CE devices that are on either end of a L2VPN (MPLS Pseudo-Wire / EVC), I'm aware of the MTU issues that would imposed not to mention the label complexity that would ensue.
Has it ever been done? Can it be done? Is it ever likely to work in the real world?
I've got a scenario where I'll have two Cisco routers either end of a L2VPN (Point-Point) and want to multiplex the services I deliver to the end router i.e a VPN VRF & Internet VRF.
Basically I want to run MPLS L3VPN inside a L2VPN / EVC from a larger national carrier. Is it even possible?
That's extremely helpful, we're currently in talks with a carrier in the UK to become a wholesale partner which gives us Layer 2 access to there Ethernet footprint via the use of Pseudowires.
I realise I might of missed an important detail out of the solution I'm trying to achieve, ultimately each of the EVC's they deliver to us (customer connections) will be presented as a VLAN, one VLAN for each EVC / PW.
Having never tried carrying MPLS labels inside a 802.1Q frame, again possible?
Naturally the carrier dot1q frame will again reduce the MTU.
