Redundancy and Failover setup for 2 MPLS link with 2 different countries

Hi Sir/Madam,

We have 2 MPLS link and both links are active (from COUNTRY A to COUNTRY B) and we also have 2 partners who are located in COUNTRY B with same building but with different offices and each partner will be using each MPLS link.  For example, PARTNER A will use the 1st MPLS link and PARTNER B will use the 2nd MPLS link and we want to have a failover setup (please see sample design below).  What is the best solution for COUNTRY A and B to have a full redundancy and failover setup/network?



Any recommendation and sample configuration will be a big help for me.   Your feedback is highly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.


Best regards,

MPLS links, eh.  You mean your MPLS facing ports have actual MPLS labels?  Or do you mean your WAN links are running across a MPLS network, but the handoff isn't MPLS?

Country A's two routers are your company's devices?  Do you have interior connectivity between them?

Country B's two routers - do they or can they have interior connectivity?

What routing protocols are being used (and where)?
