I apologize for not utilizing the suitable terminology however I am in a bizarre place and I am a beginner with MPLS.
I changed an individual who left the corporate in a small SP, I come from the enterprise world however I needed to just accept new challenges by accepting a place within the SP world with junior expertise.
My firm is implementing a brand new overlay/underlay infrastructure in a campus and all of the tenants will likely be invited to return onboard.
The tenants of concern are those that have their “websites” unfold throughout the campus, and over time they’ve run bodily cables amongst their switches and put in place STP. We’re talking of two or three of them.
In an uncommon strategy for a undertaking (usually first come necessities after which selection of gadgets), the expertise chosen (not by me) is EVPN-BGP and gadgets will likely be Huawei S5700, however being EVPN primarily based on VxLAN they will not have the option, afaik, to hold BPDUs.
The query seems political however as engineer who finds options, though short-term, I am challenged to discover a means on how you can care for the tenants I described above.
I learn that within the Huawei world there are mpls l2vc and it is likely to be the best way they name VPLS and sure they need to carry BPDUs. I am not conscious of a technique to run on Huawei S5700 what Cisco calls Xconnect.
Query: do you’ve gotten expertise of environments with a mixture of applied sciences, EVPN-BGP and VPLS? Do you see that we would ultimately battle with limits?
Sadly EVPN-MPLS shouldn’t be supported by S5700 nor my firm want to abandon utterly EVPN-BGP and use as an example H-VPLS, as a result of the tenants I check with above will likely be ultimately all requested to undertake a interconnecting layer suitable with an EVPN-BGP overlay and transfer away from STP.
If you realize the function/expertise in Huawei, just like what Cisco name xconnect please let me know, that will likely be even easier.
