l2tpv3/pseudowire

Hi,

I am looking at using l2tpv3/pseudowire between 2 Datacentre as I require both subnets available in both datacentres.   Is there any advantage in using l2tpv3/pseudowire rather than creating layer 2 Vlan connectivity between the DC's.

The DC willl be connected via 1gb Les circuit

Single liner.."NO", it's not required.

Multi liner: Service providers  often use this to extend layer-2 circuits over their IP networks and the capability to transport MPLS Layer-3 VPN traffic, and the capability to transport IPv6 over an IPv4 backbone network. Will you be needing these??????

Go the usual way then, don't need that extra overhead of CEF for pseudowire. Unless for learning, I personally prefer to go the standard way, always.
