    Hi,
    Due to cost issues tied to direct IPLC, we are thinking of running
    BGP sessions with upstream providers through L2TP tunnels. It would be
    very helpful, if anyone in the group share advises on the pros and
    cons of this setup. A few other doubts are:

    - We have concerns on the stability of the virtual link like quality
    drop etc. Are there any mechanism to improve this as drop of tunnel
    would cause BGP flapping/dampening ?
    - What would be the overhead on the bandwidth throughtput?

    We would like to get more input before looking into further. Thanks

    Regards,
    Kanagaraj Krishna
