  1. Hi Anton ,
    I read the article and its really helpful. But I have one doubt hope so you will clarify my doubts.
    in VPLS configuration why ISP configured bridge domain on CISCO ASR instead of Alcatel-Lucent router ?
    why do we need of CISCO ASR PE router in Alcatel-Lucent network topology ?
    Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Sharad Yadav,

      I’m not sure, I fully got your point. For L2 related activities you need to configure bridge domain on Cisco or VPLS instance on Nokia. Both of them could be either aggregation node (pure L2) or PWHE (L2 + L3). I hope it answers your question. Let me know if you have any other doubts.
