question regarding MPLS VRF BGP and OSPF limitations

Wed Jul 30, 2014 11:57 am

Hello,

We are looking at putting in a couple of these routerboards (CCR1036-8G-2S+EM) temporarily to terminate a couple of 10G trunks.
Perhaps they may become permanent, we normally use Cisco ASR 1002's for these small scale data centre deployments.

It's pretty standard setup, the routers act as a combined P & PE router.
iBGP fully meshed, MP-BGP, MPLS and OSPF for core routing.
Trunks being delivered on the 10G ports from the carrier, vlans configured to carry each customer specific vrf traffic.

I know it's a very generalised question, but are there any major issues with RouterOS that just don't work in these standard situations ?
Specifically directed to people who have used Cisco to deploy combined P & PE routers and have used RouterOS in the mix.

Thanks for taking the time to read :)

We use CCR's in the scenario you describe.

The main issue is that CCR'S will not currently do more than 1Gbit/s on a single TCP session. Multiple sessions will go over, but a single one is limited by only being able to run across a single core.

What is the aggregate traffic throughput which we could have on the CCRs?
