MPLS Internet Breakout

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Hi all,

I am working through a network topology for a new company office.

They have an MPLS network, this particular office will have a 30Mb fibre connection to said MPLS.  I have been told that there is a 15Mb "Internet Breakout" from the core that they will be using for this site.

My question is this:

If the MPLS is terminated with one router, how does this "Breakout" happen, is it a case of routing all internet based traffic down one particular VLAN?

I am trying to draw a toplogy of the new site and I'm getting stuck trying to figure out how this "Breakout" will be configured.

Sorry if I am vague, it's been a while since I have dealt with something like this.
