Glossary

Prerequisites for MPLS VPN CSC with LDP and IGP

This feature includes the following requirements:

The provider edge (PE) routers of the backbone carrier require 128 MB of memory.

The backbone carrier must enable the PE router to check that the packets it receives from the customer edge (CE) router contain only the labels that the PE router advertised to the CE router. This prevents data spoofing, which occurs when a packet from an unrecognized IP address is sent to a router.

Information About MPLS VPN CSC with LDP and IGP

Before configuring MPLS VPN CSC, you should understand the following concepts:

MPLS VPN CSC Introduction

Benefits of Implementing MPLS VPN CSC

Configuration Options for MPLS VPN CSC with LDP and IGP

MPLS VPN CSC Introduction

Carrier supporting carrier is where one service provider allows another service provider to use a segment of its backbone network. The service provider that provides the segment of the backbone network to the other provider is called the backbone carrier. The service provider that uses the segment of the backbone network is called the customer carrier.

A backbone carrier offers Border Gateway Protocol and Multiprotocol Label Switching (BGP/MPLS) VPN services. The customer carrier can be either:

An Internet service provider (ISP)

A BGP/MPLS VPN service provider

Benefits of Implementing MPLS VPN CSC

The MPLS VPN CSC provides the following benefits to service providers who are backbone carriers and to customer carriers.

Benefits to the Backbone Carrier

The backbone carrier can accommodate many customer carriers and give them access to its backbone. The backbone carrier does not need to create and maintain separate backbones for its customer carriers. Using one backbone network to support multiple customer carriers simplifies the backbone carrier's VPN operations. The backbone carrier uses a consistent method for managing and maintaining the backbone network. This is also cheaper and more efficient than maintaining separate backbones.

The MPLS VPN carrier supporting carrier feature is scalable. Carrier supporting carrier can change the VPN to meet changing bandwidth and connectivity needs. The feature can accommodate unplanned growth and changes. The carrier supporting carrier feature enables tens of thousands of VPNs to be configured over the same network, and it allows a service provider to offer both VPN and Internet services.

The MPLS VPN carrier supporting carrier feature is a flexible solution. The backbone carrier can accommodate many types of customer carriers. The backbone carrier can accept customer carriers who are ISPs or VPN service providers or both. The backbone carrier can accommodate customer carriers that require security and various bandwidths.

Benefits to the Customer Carriers

The MPLS VPN carrier supporting carrier feature removes from the customer carrier the burden of configuring, operating, and maintaining its own backbone. The customer carrier uses the backbone network of a backbone carrier, but the backbone carrier is responsible for network maintenance and operation.

Customer carriers who use the VPN services provided by the backbone carrier receive the same level of security that Frame Relay or ATM-based VPNs provide. Customer carriers can also use IPSec in their VPNs for a higher level of security; it is completely transparent to the backbone carrier.

Customer carriers can use any link layer technology (SONET, Digital Subscriber Line, Frame Relay, and so on) to connect the CE routers to the PE routers and the PE routers to the P routers. The MPLS VPN carrier supporting carrier feature is link layer independent. The CE routers and PE routers use IP to communicate, and the backbone carrier uses MPLS.

The customer carrier can use any addressing scheme and still be supported by a backbone carrier. The customer address space and routing information are independent of the address space and routing information of other customer carriers or the backbone provider.

Configuration Options for MPLS VPN CSC with LDP and IGP

The backbone carrier offers BGP and MPLS VPN services. The customer carrier can be one of the two types of service providers described in the following sections, which explain how the backbone and customer carriers distribute IPv4 routes and MPLS labels.

Customer Carrier Is an ISP

Customer Carrier Is a BGP/MPLS VPN Service Provider

Customer Carrier Is an ISP

This section explains how a BGP/MPLS VPN service provider (backbone carrier) can provide a segment of its backbone network to a customer who is an ISP.

Consider the following example:

An ISP has two sites: one in California, the other in Maine. Each site is a point of presence (POP). The ISP wants to connect these sites using a VPN service provided by a backbone carrier. Figure 1 illustrates this situation.

Figure 1 Sample BGP/MPLS Backbone Carrier Supporting an ISP


Note The CE routers in the figures are CE routers to the backbone carrier. However, they are PE routers to the customer carrier.


In this example, only the backbone carrier uses MPLS. The customer carrier (ISP) uses only IP. As a result, the backbone carrier must carry all the Internet routes of the customer carrier, which could be as many as 100,000 routes. This poses a scalability problem for the backbone carrier. To solve the scalability problem, the backbone carrier is configured as follows:

The backbone carrier allows only internal routes of the customer carrier (IGP routes) to be exchanged between the CE routers of the customer carrier and the PE routers of the backbone carrier.

MPLS is enabled on the interface between the CE router of the customer carrier and the PE router of the backbone carrier.

Internal and external routes are differentiated this way:

Internal routes go to any of the routers within the ISP.

External routes go to the Internet.

The number of internal routes is much lower than the number of external routes. Restricting the routes between the CE routers of the customer carrier and the PE routers of the backbone carrier significantly reduces the number of routes that the PE router needs to maintain.

Because the PE routers do not have to carry external routes in the VRF routing table, they can use the incoming label in the packet to forward the customer carrier Internet traffic. Adding MPLS to the routers provides a consistent method of transporting packets from the customer carrier to the backbone carrier. MPLS allows the exchange of an MPLS label between the PE and the CE routers for every internal customer carrier route. The routers in the customer carrier have all the external routes either through internal Border Gateway Protocol (iBGP) or route redistribution to provide Internet connectivity. Figure 2 shows how information is exchanged when the network is configured in this manner.

Figure 2 Backbone Carrier Exchanging Routing Information with a Customer Carrier Who Is an ISP

In Figure 3, routes are created between the backbone carrier and the customer carrier sites. ASBR2 receives an Internet route that originated outside the network. All routers in the ISP sites have all the external routes through IBGP connections among them.

Figure 3 Establishing a Route Between a Backbone Carrier and a Customer Carrier Who Is an ISP

Table 2 describes the process of establishing the route, which can be divided into two distinct steps:

The backbone carrier propagates the IGP information of the customer carrier, which enables the customer carrier routers to reach all the customer carrier routers in the remote sites.

Once the routers of the customer carriers in different sites are reachable, external routes can be propagated in the customer carrier sites, using IBGP without using the backbone carrier routers.

Table 2 Establishing a Route Between the Backbone Carrier and the Customer Carrier ISP

Step
Description

1

CSC-CE2 sends the internal routes within site 2 to CSC-PE2. The routes include the route to ASBR2.

2

CSC-PE2 sends the routing information for site 2 to CSC-PE1, using MPLS VPN processes. CSC-PE1 gets one label (called L3), which is associated with the route to the VPN-IP address for ASBR2. CSC-PE1 gets another label (called L2), which is associated with the route to CSC-PE2.

3

CSC-PE1 sends the routing information associated with internal routes from site 2 to CSC-CE1. CSC-PE1 also sends the label binding information. As a result, CSC-CE1 gets the route to ASBR2 with CSC-PE1 as the next hop. The label associated with that route is called L1.

4

CSC-CE1 distributes the routing information through site 1. Every router in site 1 gets a route for every internal destination in site 2. Therefore, every router in site 1 can reach routers in site 2 and learn external routes through IBGP.

5

ASBR2 receives an Internet route.

6

The IBGP sessions exchange the external routing information of the ISP, including a route to the Internet. Every router in site 1 knows a route to the Internet, with ASBR2 as the next hop of that route.


Customer Carrier Is a BGP/MPLS VPN Service Provider

When a backbone carrier and the customer carrier both provide BGP/MPLS VPN services, the method of transporting data is different from when a customer carrier provides only ISP services. The following list highlights those differences:

When a customer carrier provides BGP/MPLS VPN services, its external routes are VPN-IPv4 routes. When a customer carrier is an ISP, its external routes are IP routes.

When a customer carrier provides BGP/MPLS VPN services, every site within the customer carrier must use MPLS. When a customer carrier is an ISP, the sites do not need to use MPLS.

Figure 4 shows how information is exchanged when MPLS VPN services reside on all customer carrier sites and on the backbone carrier.

Figure 4 Backbone Carrier Exchanging Information with a Customer Carrier Who Is an MPLS VPN Service Provider

In the example shown in Figure 5, routes are created between the backbone carrier and the customer carrier sites.

Figure 5 Establishing a Route Between a Backbone Carrier and a Customer Carrier Who Is an MPLS VPN Service Provider

Table 3 describes the process of establishing the route.

Table 3 Establishing a Route Between the Backbone Carrier and Customer Carrier Site

Step
Description

1

CE2 sends all the internal routes within site 2 to CSC-PE2.

2

CSC-PE2 sends the routing information for site 2 to CSC-PE1, using MPLS VPN processes. CSC-PE1 gets one label (called L3), which is associated with the route to the VPN-IP address for PE2. CSC-PE1 gets another label (called L2), which is associated with the route to CSC-PE2.

3

CSC-PE1 sends the routing information associated with internal routes from site 2 to CSC-CE1. CSC-PE1 also sends the label binding information. As a result, CSC-CE1 gets the route to PE2 with CSC-PE1 as the next hop. The label associated with that route is called L1.

4

CE1 distributes the routing and labeling information through site 1. Every router in site 1 gets a route for every internal destination in site 2. Therefore, PE1 can establish an MP-IBGP session with PE2.

5

CE2 advertises the internal routes of MPLS VPN site 2 to PE2.

6

PE2 allocates labels for all the VPN routes (regular MPLS VPN functionality) and advertises the labels to PE1, using MP-IBGP.

7

PE1 can forward traffic from VPN site 1 that is destined for VPN site 2.

The ip-address argument specifies the IP address of the BGP-speaking neighbor.

The peer-group-name argument specifies the name of a BGP peer group.

Step 9 

neighbor {ip-address | peer-group-name} activate

Example:

Router(config-router-af)# neighbor 10.12.12.12 activate

Enables the exchange of information with a neighboring BGP router.

The ip-address argument specifies the IP address of the neighbor.

The peer-group-name argument specifies the name of a BGP peer group.

Step 10 

end

Example:

Router(config-router-af)# end

Troubleshooting Tips

You can enter a show ip bgp neighbor command to verify that the neighbors are up and running. If this command generates an error message, enter a debug ip bgp x.x.x.x events command, where x.x.x.x is the IP address of the neighbor.

Configuring the CSC-PE and CSC-CE Routers

To enable the CSC-PE and CSC-CE routers to distribute routes and MPLS labels, perform the following tasks:

Configuring LDP on the CSC-PE and CSC-CE Routers (required)

Enabling MPLS Encapsulation on the CSC-PE and CSC-CE Routers (required)

Prerequisites

Before you configure the CSC-PE and CSC-CE routers, you must configure an IGP on the CSC-PE and CSC-CE routers. A routing protocol is required between the PE and CE routers that connect the backbone carrier to the customer carrier. The routing protocol enables the customer carrier to exchange IGP routing information with the backbone carrier. Use the same routing protocol that the customer carrier uses. You can choose RIP, OSPF, or static routing as the routing protocol. BGP is not supported. For the configuration steps, see Configuring MPLS Layer 3 VPNs.

Configuring LDP on the CSC-PE and CSC-CE Routers

MPLS LDP is required between the PE and CE routers that connect the backbone carrier to the customer carrier. You can configure LDP as the default label distribution protocol for the entire router or just for the PE-to-CE interface for VRF.

Verifying the Carrier Supporting Carrier Configuration

The following commands verify the status of LDP sessions that were configured between the backbone carrier and customer carrier. Now the customer carrier ISP sites appear as a VPN customer to the backbone carrier.

SUMMARY STEPS

1. show mpls ldp discovery vrf vrf-name

2. show mpls ldp discovery all

DETAILED STEPS


Step 1 show mpls ldp discovery vrf vrf-name

Use this command to show that the LDP sessions are in VRF VPN1 of the PE router of the backbone carrier, for example:

Router# show mpls ldp discovery vrf vpn1 
 
   
Local LDP Identifier:
    10.0.0.0:0
Discovery Sources:
    Interfaces:
        Ethernet1/0 (ldp): xmit/recv
            LDP Id: 10.0.0.1:0
POS6/0 (ldp): xmit
 
   

Step 2 show mpls ldp discovery all

Use this command to list all LDP sessions in a router, for example:

Router# show mpls ldp discovery all
 
   
Local LDP Identifier:
    10.10.10.10:0
Discovery Sources:
    Interfaces:
        Ethernet1/5 (ldp): xmit/recv
            LDP Id: 10.5.5.5:0
VRF vpn1: Local LDP Identifier:
    10.0.0.1:0
Discovery Sources:
    Interfaces:
        Ethernet1/0 (ldp): xmit/recv
            LDP Id: 10.0.0.1:0
POS6/0 (ldp): xmit
 
   

The Local LDP Identifier field shows the LDP identifier for the local label switching router for this session. The Interfaces field displays the interfaces engaging in LDP discovery activity:

xmit indicates that the interface is transmitting LDP discovery hello packets.

recv indicates that the interface is receiving LDP discovery hello packets.


Configuration Examples for MPLS VPN CSC with LDP and IGP

This section provides the following configuration examples:

MPLS VPN CSC Network with a Customer Who Is an ISP: Example

MPLS VPN CSC Network with a Customer Who Is an MPLS VPN Provider: Example

MPLS VPN CSC Network That Contains Route Reflectors: Example

MPLS VPN CSC Network with a Customer Who Has VPNs at the Network Edge: Example

MPLS VPN CSC Network with a Customer Who Is an ISP: Example

Figure 6 shows a carrier supporting carrier network configuration where the customer carrier is an ISP. The customer carrier has two sites, each of which is a POP. The customer carrier connects these sites using a VPN service provided by the backbone carrier. The backbone carrier uses MPLS. The ISP sites use IP. To enable packet transfer between the ISP sites and the backbone carrier, the CE routers that connect the ISPs to the backbone carrier run MPLS.

Figure 6 Carrier Supporting Carrier Network with a Customer Carrier Who Is an ISP

The following examples show the configuration of each router in the carrier supporting carrier network. OSPF is used to connect the customer carrier to the backbone carrier.

MPLS VPN CSC Network That Contains Route Reflectors: Example

Figure 8 shows a carrier supporting carrier network configuration that contains route reflectors. The customer carrier has two sites.

Figure 8 Carrier Supporting Carrier Network that Contains Route Reflectors


Note A connection between route reflectors (RRs) is not necessary.


The following configuration examples show the configuration of each router in the carrier supporting carrier network. Note the following:

The router IP addresses are abbreviated for ease of reading. For example, the loopback address for PE 1 is 25, which is equivalent to 10.25.25.25.

The following list shows the loopback addresses for the CSC-PE routers:

CSC-PE1 (75K-37-3): loopback 0 = 10.15.15.15, loopback 1 = 10.18.18.18

CSC-PE2 (75K-38-3): loopback 0 = 10.16.16.16, loopback 1 = 10.20.20.20

Glossary

ASBR— autonomous system boundary router. A router that connects one autonomous system to another.

BGP—Border Gateway Protocol. An interdomain routing protocol designed to provide loop-free routing between separate routing domains that contain independent routing policies (autonomous systems).

carrier suporting carrier—A situation where one service provider allows another service provider to use a segment of its backbone network.

CE router—customer edge router. A router that is part of a customer network and that interfaces to a provider edge (PE) router. In this document, the CE roter sits on the edge of the customer carrier network.

edge router—A router that is at the edge of the network. It defines the boundary of the MPLS network. It receives and transmits packets. Also referred to as edge label switch router and label edge router.

IGP—Interior Gateway Protocol. Internet protocol used to exchange routing information within an autonomous system.

LDP—Label Distribution Protocol. A standard protocol between MPLS-enabled routers to negotiate the labels (addresses) used to forward packets.

MPLS—Multiprotocol Label Switching. Switching method that forwards IP traffic using a label. This label instructs the routers and the switches in the network where to forward the packets based on preestablished IP routing information.

PE router—provider edge router. A router, at the edge of a service provider's network, that interfaces to CE routers.

VPN—Virtual Private Network. A network that enables IP traffic to use tunneling to travel securely over a public TCP/IP network.
