MPLS Lab 017 Build L3 MPLS VPN Network Part2

Image requirements:
VIRL: IOSv 15.7
EVE-NG: Cisco vIOS Router vios-15.6
GNS3: vios-adventerprisek9-m.vmdk.SPA.156-2.T

This is the second part lab, the goal is the same, to build from the ground up the MPLS based VPN solutions, the difference is that here you have to use OSPF as IGP for label distribution protocol instead of the IS-IS, and for the PE-CE routing the EGRP and static routing will be used.

You have got the contract for the project, which involves deployment of the L3 MPLS VPN network for medium size ISP, the team of network technicians have completed the installation of the networking equipment and now ISP requires your skills to implement the VPN services over the ISP core network.

Lab tasks:
1. Enable OSPF as IGP for label distribution protocol.
2. Enable MPLS on the gigabit ethernet interfaces that connect P and PE routers, force loopback0 as LDP router-ID, use MPLS ranges.
3. Configure MP-BGP, use multihop neighborship, activate neighbors in VPNv4 AF. 
4. Create VRFs CE1 and CE2. Assing the G0/3 interfaces on each PE router to the VRF according to the topology.
5. Configure PE-CE routing for CE1 VRF using EIGRP.
6. Configure PE-CE routing for CE2 VRF using static routing. 
7. Enable mutual redistribution for VRF CE1 at PE1 and PE3 routers. 
8. Enable mutual redistribution for VRF CE2 at PE1 and PE3 routers. 
9. Verify the implementation of MPLS VPN, check if CE routers are able to access each other loopback subnets. 

Now that you have finished tasks with last two labs you probably got quite of experience and ready to move to the more advanced MPLS VPN topics, for example how to enable IPv6 over MPLS cloud, connectivity between VPNs, and how to get access to the Internet from the VPNs, all these materials will be covered in the future labs.
