Re: [Tech Ops] MPLS
Ok - IP Space is my reasoning for changing to pppoe - I can centrally manage the ip pool while keeping NAS server closer to the customers. I guess more specifically is there an advantage to running mpls vs routing public ip's with ospf. To implement I would have to replace all of the routers on my network. Just trying to figure out if its justified and if I would see an improvement over straight ospf routing or would it be a lot of work for little gain.
Well unless you want to run VPLS VPN tunnels I wouldn't be switching.
Ospf won't degrade packet forwarding performance. It's just a route distribution protocol.
You don't really switch necessarily. I still use ospf alongside with mpls. You still need to have routes. MPLS works over current routing table wether its static or OSPF or BGP or whatever.
