Abstract: This paper focus on the design and implementation of a software solution for fast reconfiguration of a Virtual private LAN service (VPLS) service for a business enterprise in the MPLS VPN network. The VPLS service as is a transparent LAN service for two or more customers sites is provisioned with the Service Access Point (SAP), Service Distribution Point (SDP) and Pseudo wire configurations with a per service granular QoS. The paper also pronounces the fast user customization of the service which reflects in the service manager. Each service in the service router has a unique ID. The reconfiguration is done based on the specifications provided by the customer. The flexibility of reconfiguration and customization criteria is met by the software tool which acts as a black box, taking the service IDs of the VPN services and provides scalability in accessing the configurations of large number of services and providing LOG files which associate to minimize the reconfiguration time of the VPN service. At the end, an example VPLS service is shown with the actual and desired service configurations and also the features of the software tool along with the design, implementation consisting of various modules the project is divided in and the procedures used with the test results provided.
