RSVP reserved TE bandwidth

Hi,

I have a scenerio where i wish to configure a TE tunnel to run across a link which is only utilised as a backup link by the current MPLS network.

Am i right in assuming the RSVP bandwidth reservation carried out by the TE tunnel would not be seen by the normal MPLS traffic. IE, in the event of a failure the normal MPLS traffic would not see that perhaps 50% of the link is reserved by the TE tunnel and possibly starve the tunnel of the required bandwidth?

Re: RSVP reserved TE bandwidth

You are right in your assumption. MPLS TE tunnel will seamlessly integrated with the normal IP or MPLS traffic without causing any trouble.

Also you may want to use 'AutoBandwidth Allocator' for reserving bandwidth instead of allocating constant value manually.
