PPPoE over a routed network

Fri Apr 20, 2012 12:43 pm

Hi,
We have a routed network with about 700 customers. We are looking to implement a PPPoE server, which would ideally be located at our central pop.
I realise that the PPPoE packets will not cross our routers - we are currently replacing them all with routerboard devices - is the way to go to implement OSPF/MPLS so that I can pass the Layer 2 PPPoE broadcast traffic to our server.
Just looking for some guidance / pointers..

Cheers,

Ade

EoIP tunnels and VPLS tunnels. As of late, VPLS are the preferred method.

why does you centralize pppoe server instead of activate pppoe server on each access point ?

I have same setup. I use EoIP but planning to go to VPLS. I have my network routed with private IP addresses and I don't want that my customers see my internal setup and I want to have everything in one place instead of lot's of boards across network. If I need to change something, I would change it only on central server. There is lot of pluses and minuses for both designs...

I use VPLS for a long time now with PPPoE to a core PoP. Works great.

Do you bridge VLANs to VPLS on your client access devices? How much traffic do you run?
