Although IS-IS is not expected to be one of the more widely deployed protocols for this type of connectivity due to its limited deployment within Enterprise networks, its availability as a PE-CE protocol might still be important in certain scenarios. For example, a VPN client might be running IS-IS on the internal network and might want to maintain the IS-IS topology when moving to an MPLS VPN environment. The primary reasons for this are similar to those discussed within the OSPF section:

  • Avoidance of having to redistribute IS-IS information into ...
