MPLS Auto-Config

Hey Folks, Having a tough period of studies and labbing, here i come with an interesting and probably very easy lab for the CCIE SP, but it is very interesting to understand and how to prevent from such during the lab.   Here i will talk a little about MPLS Auto-Configuration with different IGP in Cisco Platform, where we will […]

MPLS TE Configuration FlowChart

Hey Folks, let’s get to the advance configuration of the MPLS on Cisco Platform, you are all already familiar for different types of configuration with the CE and PE, P Routers. Here we will discuss the Concept of TE (Traffic Engineering) on MPLS and Flowchart to configure the MPLS TE. So let’s first see what is MPLS TE: TE is […]

MPLS BGP PE-CE Routing Protocol

Hey Folks, here we will discuss the interesting LAB of MPLS for implementation of BGP on the Customer Site, or simple running BGP Protocol on customer site. Here we will see how BGP works on top of MP-BGP, and the Service Provider providing the Connectivity for the Different Customers which are all running BGP. We know that BGP version 4 (BGP4) […]

MPLS VPN Basic Configuration

Hey folks, as we discussed in our previous post regarding Basic Configuration on Cisco IOS , here we will continue with advance feature which is establishment of VPN on top of MPLS. Basically there were two Models of VPN which exist: Overlay VPN Overlay VPNs were initially implemented by the SP by providing either Layer 1 (physical layer) connectivity or a […]
