TE Tunnel and Load sharing or load distribution

Hello,

I have two TE( MPLS Traffig Engineering) tunnels from a head end to tail end via different paths ( like from router A to router B via router C and other is from router A to router B via router D) , how I can load share or load balance between two TE tunnel. I am using TE tunnels to transport multiple vpls circuits. Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks

Regards

I guess you should create as many VPLS tunnels as necessary and then use bonding for load sharing/balancing - instead of bridging ethernet with VPLS tunnel, bridge ethernet with bonding interface. Then add VPLS tunnels that traverse different paths as slaves to bonding interface.

Sorry to barge in on this thread, but I want to get MPLSGUY's attention/

Hi Mplsguy... have you seen this thread: http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=48971

Is there an answer to that... can MPLS be used to split a TCP connection down different MPLS tunnels and reassemble it on the remote router?
