Configuring IGP TE (OSPF or IS-IS)

Configuring IGP TE (OSPF or IS-IS)

After IGP TE is configured on all LSRs in an MPLS domain, a TEDB is generated on each LSR.


Either OSPF TE or IS-IS TE can be used:


If neither OSPF TE nor IS-IS TE is configured, LSRs generate no TE link state advertisement (LSA) or TE Link State PDUs (LSPs) and construct no TEDBs.

TE tunnels cannot be used in inter-area scenarios. In an inter-area scenario, an explicit path can be configured, and the inbound and outbound interfaces of the explicit path must be specified, preventing a failure to establish a TE tunnel.


    OSPF TE uses Opaque Type 10 LSAs to carry TE attributes. The OSPF Opaque capability must be enabled on each LSR. In addition, TE LSAs are generated only when at least one OSPF neighbor is in the Full state.

  • IS-IS TE

    IS-IS TE uses the sub-time-length-value (sub-TLV) in the IS-reachable TLV (22) to carry TE attributes. The IS-IS wide metric attribute must be configured. Its value can be narrow, wide, compatible, or wide-compatible.


  • Configure OSPF TE.
    1. Run:


      The system view is displayed.

    2. Run:

      ospf [ process-id ]

      The OSPF view is displayed.

    3. Run:

      opaque-capability enable

      The OSPF Opaque capability is enabled.

    4. Run:

      area area-id

      The OSPF area view is displayed.

    5. Run:

      mpls-te enable [ standard-complying ]

      TE is enabled in the OSPF area.

    6. Run:


      The configurations are committed.

  • Configure IS-IS TE.
    1. Run:


      The system view is displayed.

    2. Run:

      isis [ process-id ]

      The IS-IS view is displayed.

    3. Run:

      cost-style { wide | compatible | wide-compatible }

      The IS-IS wide metric attribute is configured.

    4. Run:

      traffic-eng [ level-1 | level-2 | level-1-2 ]

      IS-IS TE is enabled.

      If no level is specified when IS-IS TE is enabled, IS-IS TE is valid for both Level-1 and Level-2 routers.

    5. (Optional) Run:

      te-set-subtlv { bw-constraint bw-constraint-value | lo-multiplier lo-multiplier-value | unreserve-bw-sub-pool unreserve-bw-sub-pool-value }*

      The type and value of a sub-TLV carrying DS-TE (DiffServ-aware Traffic Engineering) attributes are specified.

      There are no unified standards for sub-TLVs that carry DS-TE attributes in non-IETF mode. To ensure interconnection between devices of different vendors, you need to manually configure TLV values for these sub-TLVs. After TLV values are configured for these sub-TLVs, the traffic engineering database (TEDB) is regenerated, and then TE tunnels are reestablished. The sub-TLVs can be sent only after TLV values are configured for them.

    6. Run:


      The configurations are committed.
