Abstract: There are many disadvantages (cost, lack of security, difficult to manage large networks, support to non-sensitive applications, delay, etc.) associated with traditional networking, IP network, ATM and Frame relay networking. To solve this, an MPLS-based VPN networking is introduced that can work with existing deployed backbones and allow organizations to interconnect the dispersed sites and remote workers through secure links by using public internet. In this thesis, we are trying to build a better understanding to MPLS VPN and we researched to analyze the behavior of OSPF and RIPv2 based MPLS-BGP VPN architectures by using intense VoIP traffic. Then it comes with an OPNET simulation process and scenarios for MPLS-BGP VPN. At last, the conclusion is made: OSPF based MPLS-BGP VPN architecture has lower VPN delay, background traffic Flow delay, LSP delay and point-to-point Queuing delay, and has better performance in VPN load and VPN throughput that can acquire customer satisfaction and confidence as compared to the RIPv2 based MPLS-BGP VPN architecture.
