mpls deployment

hi

we?re currently designing a new mpls topology for one of our custome.

we?ve joining the PE?s routers using 10G ports, to build a ring.

The question is regarding the nature of these ports. Are they L2 or L3? Is it neccesary to implement STP or just we need to assing a L3 ip and run a IGP routing protocol between ports?

I appreciate in deep any document relating these questions.

Thanks in advance

Hi

The 10G ports can be used as Switchport as well as routed port.Its always better to go for L3 and run a IGP . And its always depends on your design to choose L2 or L3 .Both are possible.

Hope this helps

Re: mpls deployment

Hi

Just wanted to tell you , it could act as a switch port if you are using a 7600 router as PE .
