Configuring TE Tunnels to Carry MPLS VPN Traffic

MPLS VPN traffic can be carried over MPLS traffic engineering (TE) tunnels.

Two different configurations are discussed in this section:

  • Transport of MPLS VPN traffic over TE tunnels between PE routers

  • Transport of MPLS VPN traffic over TE tunnels between P routers

Figure 6-28 shows both of these configurations.

Configuring TE Tunnels Between PE Routers

In this configuration, PE routers are configured as TE tunnel head-end and tail-end routers. P routers are configured as TE midpoint routers.
