The Cisco 6PE solution enables IPv6 domains to communicate with each other over an MPLS IPv4 core network. MP-BGP in the IPv4 network is used to exchange IPv6 reachability information along with a label for each IPv6 prefix announced. 6PE routers are dual-stack routers i.e. running IPv6 with the customers and IPv4 in the core.
6PE routers do the following:
Participate in V4 IGP to establish internal reachability inside the MPLS cloud
Participate in LDP for binding V4 labels
Run MP-BGP4 (Multi-Protocol iBGP) to advertise v6 reachability and distribute V6 labels among them
The labels can be distributed as follows:
Per-Prefix label - The 6PE node distributes labels for each IPv6 prefix learnt from interfaces connected to CE routers
Run IPv6 routing protocols (eBGP6, Static, ISIS v6, OSPF v3 , EIGRP v6, iBGP) with CE routers to advertise V6 reachability learnt from their peers over the MPLS cloud
IGP protocol between CE to PE has to be redistributed into MP-iBGP for end to end reachability
6PE with iBGP between CE and PE
6PE with iBGP between PE and CE is supported since IOS-XR 4.0. Unlike IOS an important mandatory configuration command is required in IOS-XR. It is required to configure "ibgp policy out enforce-modifications" under router bgp <AS> to allow changing attributes on the RR for reflected routes.
I understand what "urgent priority" does. I also understand what ! does in a route pattern. But when they were put together, I'm confused.! is usually used on variable length dial strings, e.g. international dialing. CallManager usually ...
Hi all;I have a carrier network with NCS 5501, we deliver L2VPN service to customers, how can I configure NCS 5501 UNI interface which is Bundle-Ether interface to process LACP PDU locally ?Note that for my service, customer promise equipement (CPE) conne...
Hi all,on all our new ASR9k we are observing a loss of NTP synchronization. We have many IOS devices which do not show this issue, so obviously it is not a network problem as the NTP servers are the same for all devices (internal server). I see...
So I picked up a used 2911 to replace my aging 3825 that I use for home router and intercom system via low end cisco 69xx voip phones. Was hoping the newer unit, advertised with CME 12, would let me maybe upgrade my phones to something more colorful.Note:...
