VPLS Labelling (Tunnel and Service Labels) As we discussed in the MPLS articles before, for MPLS we need labels. VPLS is also a MPLS Service, so we need to use labels in VPLS too. There are two MPLS labels used in VPLS. These labels are: • Outher Label (Transport Label) • Inner Label (Servise Label […]


VPLS MAC Learning VPLS is a Leyer 2 VPN technology. Becuase of its Layer 2 nature, “MAC Learning” is very important for VPLS. So, how does VPLS learn MAC Addresses? MAC Learning in VPLS is similar to normal switching MAC Learning. The concept is basic. At the beginning nobody knows the others. So, to send […]


VPLS Topologies VPLS can be defined on One Service Router or on Multiple Service Routers. Basically we can divide VPLS into two here. The first one is VPLS, that is defined on one Service Router of Service Provider, by using router ports only. As Alcatel-Lucent (Nokia) translation, this type of VPLS is done only by […]

Traffic Engineering, RSVP-TE Path Manuplation and Constraints Traffic Engineering is one of the most important routing lessons. With traffic engineering, as a network engineer you are directing your network traffic according to some constraints. By directing the traffic, you provide efficient usage of resources and become proactive for any congestion and packet drops in your […]
