High-Availability & Redundancy over two different box on IPVPN
Hi all, one of my customer is having money to spend. They are currently running MPLS IPVPN through one of the service provider, but being pathethic the way they are, they want a second IPVPN link from a different service provider. Can I design the network like the diagram I've attached?
Here's their requirement:
i. Traffic should follow the MPLS_A path.
Challenge: Since the IPVPN is a layer3 services, the link stays up does not mean its problem free. How can I direct the traffic through MPLS_B path if there's something wrong with the routing at MPLS_A?
ii. Inside the trunk, I'll try to run sub-interface with HSRP, I'll force the traffic to follow the MPLS_A since I'll set it at the primary path. But if there's something wrong with the FastEthernet interface stays up, how can the traffic know it should follow the MPLS_B path?

interface we use the VLAN tag to demultiplex the VLANs. The switch needs
to determine which MAC Address table to look in for a forwarding
decision. To do this we require the switch to do...
