MPLS vpn

Does c2600 series support for mpls vpn? if yes which release of ios is the minimum required?

Re: MPLS vpn

How do you want to use a 2600 router in your MPLS VPN network? As a PE?

It is impossible. As a CE - no problem because any router can work as a CE

Re: MPLS vpn

Is it impossible because of performance?

In this particular case a customer needs a "cheap" router for lab purposes.

I know that a 2600 with 12.2 and enterprise plus feature supports stuffs like tag-switching ip, ip vrf, address-family ipv4 vrf, address-family vpnv4. These things are what are necesary for configuring a basic mpls vpn, am I right?

I don't know why the CCO's tool feature navigator doen't show the "mpls vpn" as a supported feature. Have you some comments?

Re: MPLS vpn

Please, take a look at This document explicitly says that PE functionality is not supported on Cisco 2600. You can try to configure MPLS VPNs if CLI allows it, but be ready to get negative results.

With best regards,
