No PE to CE Adjcancencies, we are getting this entire lab rocking, tonight! 🙂 I don't usually blow away labs as I learn along the way, as I essentially turned all customer into 1:1 mappings across the MPLS, and its just not worth your time reading (you can refer to here for 1:1 Customer mappings). … Continue reading MPLS – Re-Engineering a 1:1 Customer MPLS L3 VPN Tunnel to serve entire company, tons of ENARSI Topics included in lab, including gotchas for exam day! 🙂
I have a confession to make - While studying MPLS I largely overlooked the configuration of the Provider Edge because of its complexity and ease of breaking all routing (and probably reversing time). I intentionally used my MPLS Lab for ENARSI 300-410 study with new IP Schemes / CE Protocols to challenge my knowledge of … Continue reading MPLS – A necessary closer look at the PE Router settings (VRF / BGP / VPN / Address Family) to see how to setup for new lab!
While both AToM and EoM are Point-to-Point Layer 2 MPLS Protocols, and L2TP is NOT related to MPLS (but a Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol all the same), VPLS is meant to be a Point-to-Multipoint or Multipoint-to-Multipoint Protocol to extend L2 across the MPLS. Some Terminology and random points on VPLS TLS - In VPLS terms … Continue reading MPLS – VPLS (Virtual Private LAN Service) review, another Layer 2 Cloud Transport solution, details inside!
I've added a couple of Routers to my current MPLS Lab, as the concept to my understanding is that with minor configuration on the PE / CE devices, it should just use the MPLS Network for Transport and that will be that! I have no training material or instructor led training on this, so this … Continue reading MPLS – EoM (Ethernet over MPLS) deeper review, attempted configuration, never worked with it before but lets give it a go!
So this is getting pretty out of bounds of what I know / have worked with at all, however I wanted to make a quick note on these technologies so I have reference to them, those two being AToM (Anything over MPLS) and EoM (Ethernet over MPLS). From my understanding AToM is for more dated … Continue reading MPLS – AToM (Any Transport of MPLS) and EoM (Ethernet over MPLS) overview, very high level review of technology, some configuration examples as well!
