MPLS: OSPF sham-links

Introduction The provider's MPLS cloud has three routers namely - R1 (P-router), R2 (PE-R2) and R3 (PE-R3). These routers formed OSPF adjacency with one another. R2 and R3 are iBGP neighbors peering with each other's loopback address. The TTL propagation within the MPLS cloud was suppressed with no mpls ip propagate-ttl command. This is to … Continue reading MPLS: OSPF sham-links

BGP: Injecting IGP route into BGP without redistribution

The diagram is complicated with an additional link, and instead of full BGP route in AS65000, the BGP route is propagated with the help of OSPF. In previous lab, the BGP full mesh was established by peering both subnets of a BGP router. However this step can be simplified by peering the BGP speaker's loopback … Continue reading BGP: Injecting IGP route into BGP without redistribution
