Re: Load Balance with MPLS on a network with several links paral

Hi,can you say it detailedly ?

Do you want to load share for CE sites? Or you just want to tune the traffic in MPLS VPN core?

If you want to load share for CE sites, you can use traditional approach by tuning the cost and max-path.

If you want to tune the traffics in MPLS VPN core for user.TE will be recommended. You can use TE feature of autometic bandwidth adjustment.

O.k.

I dont know very well MPLS, neither VPN, but I know very well other type of protocols of IGP (like RIP,IGRP, EIGRP, OSPF) or EGP (like BGP), and I know how to balance the load by packets or by session, but I have this doubt and I want to know if its dificult or is the same but with something near/close-looks like it.

Can you tell me what does CE/TE Mean please.

Note: I know, I have to read a good book of MPLS.

Thanks a lot by your answer.

Hi, Saul

CE and TE is the MPLS terms, CE means customer edge, TE means traffic engineering. CE is customer router which does not participate MPLS core, and just connect PE router. A customer may be have many sites in different locations. You can use static routes or dynamic routes to connect the sites by MPLS VPN. MPLS service provider also can provide special enhanced service for customer traffic between CEs by TE tunnel.
