Example: Base Configuration for N-PE Device in an E-Line (LDP) Service


An N-PE device to be used in an E-Line service must have the following entities configured before you assign the N-PE role to the device:

  • Gigabit Ethernet interfaces to the network core

  • Loopback interface

  • MPLS protocol

  • OSPF protocol

  • LDP protocol

The N-PE device in this configuration example has just one interface to the network core. In a more complex network in which the N-PE device connects to more than one P device, you need to configure multiple interfaces.


If the N-PE router will also be used in multipoint services, do not use this base configuration. Instead, use the base configuration for multipoint services.
