These technologies provided secure tunnels, were resistant to Denial-of-Service (DoS) and intrusion attacks, and provided address and routing separation. The problem with Layer 2 VPN technology is that it does not scale well. As the network grows, the number of required virtual circuits achieving optimal routing scales non-linearly. It is also difficult to provide traffic engineering using a Layer 2 VPN approach.
