With Vivek Ruhil
Welcome to the Cisco Support Community Ask the Expert conversation. This is an opportunity to learn and ask questions about MPLS L3VPN: concepts, terminology, control and data plane call flow with Cisco expert Vivek Ruhil.
MPLS Layer 3 VPNs use a peer-to-peer model that uses Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) to distribute VPN-related information. This highly scalable, peer-to-peer model allows enterprise subscribers to outsource routing information to service providers, resulting in significant cost savings and a reduction in operational complexity for enterprises. Service providers can then offer value-added services like Quality of Service (QoS) and Traffic Engineering, allowing network convergence that encompasses voice, video, and data.
Vivek Ruhil is a network consulting engineer who is currently serving as the Cisco consultant for Bharti. He has previously worked as a network consultant for planning, design, and implementation of service provider networks and has experience with projects ranging from VPNs (L3, L2, 6vPE) to multicast services. He has been associated with the networking industry for almost 10 years. He holds a bachelor of technology degree as well as CCDP and CCIP certifications.
