Interprovider L3VPN Option C on a vMX

Implementation Description

In this article, I will build an Interprovider L3VPN Option C setup on a single vMX. Each individual router will be configured as a logical router. The vMX router has a back-to-back connection between ge-0/0/0 and ge-0/0/1 ports. For each different link, a different VLAN number will be configured to separate the traffic generated based on router ID number.

Note: This option is the most scalable solution comparing with option A and option B.
