 Cisco Ask the Expert     

 

Welcome to this Cisco Support Community Ask the Expert conversation.  This is an opportunity to learn and any ask questions about how to configure and troubleshoot MPLS VPN to Vinit Jain.

Ask questions from Tuesday September 15, to Friday September 25, 2015

Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) virtual private network (VPN) is a cost-effective solution that provides backbone connectivity and other related services to end customers without compromising customer privacy. Because MPLS provides protocol-independent forwarding, MPLS VPN can be implemented to utilize the existing MPLS infrastructure to provide the service. Ever since RFC4364, many service providers now offer VPN services to their customers, using a technique in which customer edge routers are routing peers of provider edge routers. The Multiprotocol Border Gateway Protocol (MP-BGP) is used to distribute customers’ routes across the providers’ IP backbone network, and MPLS is used to tunnel customer packets across the providers’ backbone.

 

Vinit will be helping you with all your queries on all of the above.

Welcome to this Cisco Support Community Ask the Expert conversation. This is an opportunity to learn and ask questions about Configuring and Troubleshooting MPLS Traffic-engineering on Cisco IOS and IOS XR router to maximize network resource utilization with expert Vinit Jain.

IGP’s do not have traffic-engineering capabilities, Thus a major part of the network stays under-utilized. With MPLS Traffic-Engineering you can not only provision un-utilized links but can also overcome link or node failure conditions using Fast-Reroute. I will be helping you answer your queries on how to configure MPLS Traffic-Engineering and also help you troubleshoot the same.
