BGP/MPLS IP VPN Application

BGP/MPLS IP VPN Application

Service Overview

Figure 2-26 shows a typical networking diagram for a carrier. Site1 and Site2 represent two networks in different cities. These networks may belong to two branches of an enterprise or municipal governments of the two cities. During communication between Site1 and Site2, data security must be ensured. The two networks must be separated from other networks and packets exchanged between them must be transparently transmitted over the carrier's backbone network. BGP/MPLS VPN technology can meet these requirements. VPN labels distributed using MP-BGP enable packets to enter the correct VPN site and MPLS enables packets to be transparently transmitted over tunnels on the carrier's backbone network.

Networking Description

PE and P devices on the carrier's backbone network are used to transmit routes and packets between Site1 and Site2 for the two networks to communicate. CE devices can be dual-homed to PE devices to ensure high network availability. Generally, a carrier deploys route reflectors (RRs) on the backbone network to reflect VPNv4 and VPNv6 routes.

Feature Deployment

In BGP/MPLS IP VPN networking, the following configurations must be performed:
  • Configure static routes between CE devices and PE devices. Alternatively, configure RIP, OSPF, IS-IS, or BGP on CE devices and PE devices for them to exchange routing information.

  • Configure MP-BGP peer relationships between all PE devices and RR1 and between all PE devices and RR2. Configure all PE devices as the clients of RR1 and RR2, and configure RR1 and RR2 to back up each other. These configurations ensure network reliability.

  • Configure MPLS and an IGP on PE and P devices and establish MPLS tunnels for traffic forwarding.

  • When adjusting IGP costs of links, pay attention to the following:
    • Adjust IGP costs of links to ensure that the two links between CE1 and CE2 work in active/standby mode. If one link fails, traffic is switched to the other link for transmission.

    • Adjust the costs of links between RRs and the backbone network to ensure that RRs are used only for route reflection, not for traffic forwarding.

  • Configure VPN FRR for services that have high requirements on real-time transmission to enhance network reliability.
