VRF on CE question

I plan to run multiple VRFs on the layer 3 switch (3750) at our spokes.

However, I don't want to expand my MPLS cloud from the hub all the way to the spoke routers (2811) because spoke-hub WAN links are satallite links and these links are not very stable. I don't want to bring this instablity to my MPLS core.

So the question is, how do I transport multiple VRFs to the MPLS cloud at the core without expand the MPLS cloud all the way down to the spoke?

You will have to expand the mpls cloud down to the spokes

Re: VRF on CE question

Hi,

if the question is "how could I do traffic separation when I couldn't expand my MPLS L3VPN", the answer is:

1. L2 solution = VLAN

2. L3 solution = multi-VRF, or VRF light

With satellite links we normally leave the traffic from spokes in the global route, then on Aggregation point we insert the traffic in to the MPLS cloud with a "VRF selection" based on source IP or PBR.
