S6: Hardware Limitation and Planning

LAB Diagram and Devices BOM

My intention is to build and test the labs presented in MPLS in SDN Era Book:

As shown in the network diagram the BOM consist of:

  • 10 x Junos Logical Systems Devices: 2xH, 2xCE, 2xPE, 2xBR, 1xRR, 1xP
  • 4 x IOS XRv Virtual Routers Devices: 2xPE, 1xRR, 1xP

Note: H/CE/BR devices can be built also using simple instance-type virtual routers as no additional inside virtualization is needed.

  • 6 x Junos Routing Instances instance-type virtual routers: 2xH, 2xCE, 2xBR
  • 4 x Junos Logical Systems Devices: 2xPE, 1xRR, 1xP
  • 4 x IOS XRv Virtual Routers Devices: 2xPE, 1xRR, 1xP
