We will be build a basic MPLS VPN network from scratch using ISIS as our IGP. Two MPLS VPN customers will be used to demonstrate the routing separation this technology has to offer. Multi-Protocol BGP (MPBGP) will be discussed and configured for VPNv4 route exchange. Static route will be used for a PE-CE routing as other routing protocols will be looked at in the following labs. Wireshark packet capture will be performed at the end of the lab to compare MPLS VPN packet to a regular MPLS packet.
