We have a core network comprising multiple nodes (2821s) with 256K - 2M Serial links joining them. The network currently support MPLS TE tunnels to provide load balancing across multiple paths within the core network. I am aware that it is not possible to run software compression (STAC) on these links as MPLS requires CEF switching to work and software compression results in process switching. Is it possible to implement hardware compression and CEF switching concurrently and hence MPLS functionality or will packets still be process switched?
Re: MPLS over Serial links with Hardware Compression
thanks for the suggestion. It works correctly but has highlighted what I believe to be an IOS bug. With MPLS packet debugging enabled on an intermediate router it works fine. Without MPLS packet debugging the intermediate router forwards the paket untagged out the wrong interface. Time for a TAC case.
