Hi

i have a Level 3 backbone with One cisco 3745 and a lot of 1721 actually connected by a MPLS VPN.

I want add a Layer 2 transport point to multipoint. Anyone know if it's possible and what is the best choice in configuration without lose IP Address on cisco 1721 for internet access ?

Thanks

L2 transport is typically done within the carrier's mpls cloud. This is how they separate your traffic from other customers.
What exactly are  you wanting to do?

Right, I agree with lrmoore. Ask your MPLS provider for Layer 2 connectivity between the desired endpoints. This typically configured on the providers PE using L2TPV3 or AToM.

You can't just delete Level 3 because you need a carrier.
If you read the whitepaper in the link above you will see the references to Provider edge equipment. That's L3. You can't do it alone.
