Need to configure MPLS, what's the best reference?

a week ago

I have this topology, and I need to configure MPLS (OSPF, LDP, RR, MP-BGP), but I have a question, what kind of reference works best for me at a lower cost.


According with the topology, the blue is the node (P-PE) and green is a customer (VRF).


I configured SRX4100 but is too cost and does not have enough 10G ports.
I configured EX-4600 but I have doubts that it works with the topology requirement.
I configured QFX5100 but I have doubts that it works with the topology requirement.

 

If you have any MPLS experience with these equipment, I would like to share it with you.

Thanks.

Hello,

 

Where is topology? could you please attach.

EX4600 is enterprise campus switch & QFX5100 is more on the data center leaf switch.

 

You requirement sounds to be routing, have you considered MX-Series? MX-80, MX104 or MX204?

If cost ($$$$$) is concern for your, could you try ACX-Series?

The topology isn't visible, but given the list of protocols you mentioned, the QFX5100 will be able to handle it just fine.  I'm using a bunch of them with Segment Routing & IS-IS in place of LDP and OSPF for delivering L3VPNs, with vMX's serviing as route-reflectors.

QFX5100 is fine for smaller scale environments.
