Re: Internet routes in Gobal Routing Table or in a VRF ?

The biggest benefit to using a VRF as I see it is that
you will help prevent accidental redistribution of
internet routes to VPN customers.  Biggest downside:
$VENDOR_C and $VENDOR_R SEs will tell you that their
boxen will croak if you do it.  Solution: $VENDOR_J
does support it.

Hello again,
Another question for BGP VPN  experts.
If you provide Internet access and VPN service on
the same MPLS Core
what are the pro and cons to transport in the core
the public internet
routes (the full 120.000 prefixes)
as VPN-V4 prefixes and announce them through a VRF
rather than as common
global routes ?
What are the trends in terms of security vs memory
vs stability ?

Thanks in advance.
