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!
The above graphic is an L2TPv3 Frame that is essentially connected to a cloud like an MPLS Provider network, though it is not an MPLS Tech like AToM or EoM, it does work very similar in the way that it is Layer 2 Transport of data through a Provider Network. From what I am gathering … Continue reading NON-MPLS Layer 2 VPN – L2TPv3 (Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol) review, what exactly it is, and how it works! (No lab)
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!
