Configuring MPLS TE Manual FRR

Configuring MPLS TE Manual FRR

MPLS TE manual FRR is a local protection mechanism that protects traffic on a link or a node on a CR-LSP.

Usage Scenario

FRR provides rapid local protection for MPLS TE networks requiring high reliability. If a local failure occurs, FRR rapidly switches traffic to a bypass tunnel, minimizing the impact on traffic.

A backbone network has a large capacity and its reliability requirements are high. If a link or node failure occurs on the backbone network, a mechanism is required to provide automatic protection and rapidly remove the fault. The Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) usually establishes MPLS TE LSPs in Downstream on Demand (DoD) mode. If a failure occurs, Constraint Shortest Path First (CSPF) can re-calculate a reachable path only after the ingress is notified of the failure. The failure may trigger reestablishment of multiple LSPs and the reestablishment fails if bandwidth is insufficient. Either the CSPF failure or bandwidth insufficiency delays the recovery of the MPLS TE network.

Configuring TE FRR on MPLS TE-enabled interfaces allows traffic to automatically switch to a protection link if a link or node on a primary tunnel fails. After the primary tunnel recovers or is reestablished, traffic switches back to the primary tunnel. This process meets the reliability requirements of the MPLS TE network.

  • FRR requires reserved bandwidth for a bypass tunnel that needs to be pre-established. If available bandwidth is insufficient, FRR protects only important nodes or links along a tunnel.

  • RSVP-TE tunnels using bandwidth reserved in Shared Explicit (SE) style support FRR, but static TE tunnels do not.

Pre-configuration Tasks

Before configuring MPLS TE manual FRR, complete the following tasks:

  • Establish a primary RSVP-TE tunnel.

  • Enable MPLS TE and RSVP-TE in the MPLS and physical interface views on every node along a bypass tunnel. (See Enabling MPLS TE and RSVP TE.)

  • (Optional) Configure TE attributes for the links of bypass tunnel. (See (Optional) Configuring TE Attributes.)

  • Enable CSPF on a Point of Local Repair (PLR).

  • (Optional) Configure an explicit path for the bypass tunnel.
