Migration to mpls from qinq

Hi guys,

We are in aprocess to implement the mpls l2 Vc on our network

by replacing the qinq l2 structure in our field, for doing so we

have to replace the present devices which takes some cost to the management.

In the mean while, can i know what are the main advantages of this approach.

Re: Migration to mpls from qinq

The main pro that I have seen from this is mainly the EVC structure. You are no longer bound to having single outer tag manipulation with QinQ. You can perform outer tag pop, push, translate, etc all based on some parameters that can be highly granular. I would recommend looking into the EVC structure for more thorough understanding.

To rephrase your question, what are you basically asking is, what are the advantages of running ip mpls compared to pure l2 switched infrastructure.

And I believe you know the answer
