MPLS with BGP as a routing protocal
Posted on 2012-03-17
It was observed ISP have not used BGP as a routing protocal for the MPLS VPN, we have around 15 spoke locations as of now at the HUB location static routing is done , for this i opposed and have asked the fortigate 300 firewall/router administrator to configure the Dynamic routing for this he said if to configure dynamic routing ISP should configure all the cisco routers routing for BGP then fortigate300 can also be configured for the dynamic using BGP do not know how far this is correct.
can anybody help me in suggesting is it highly recommended to configure the BGP as a routing for the MPLS VPN (HUB and spoke technology) so that will ask ISP to configure BGP as a routing protocol.
We would like to share the internet to the spoke locations few users from the HUB location and applications to be used from the spoke loactions are CRM/ERP ,FTP, smb and etc.
