Configuring VPLS Network Interfaces
You must configure one of the following types of
Ethernet or bridged Ethernet network interfaces to transmit packets
between the PE router and each CE device to which the PE router is
- Bridged Ethernet over ATM 1483 subinterfaces
- Fast Ethernet
- Gigabit Ethernet
- 10-Gigabit Ethernet
- VLAN and S-VLAN subinterfaces over bridged Ethernet, Fast
Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, or 10-Gigabit Ethernet interfaces
The requirements and procedures for network interfaces
are the same whether you employ BGP or LDP signaling for VPLS.
To configure a network interface for a VPLS instance:
- From Global Configuration mode, select the interface that
you want to assign to the VPLS instance.
- host1(config)#interface gigabitEthernet 3/0
- From Interface Configuration mode or Subinterface Configuration
mode, assign the interface to the specified VPLS instance.
- host1(config-if)#bridge-group customer1
Issuing this command with no optional
keywords configures the network interface as a subscriber (client)
interface by default.
- (Optional) Configure the interface as a trunk (server)
interface. For more information about the differences between a subscriber
(client) interface and a trunk (server) interface, see Configuring Subscriber Policies for VPLS Network Interfaces .
- host1(config-if)#bridge-group customer1 subscriber-trunk
- (Optional) Set the maximum number of MAC addresses that
the network interface can learn.
- host1(config-if)#bridge-group customer1 learn
- Enable SNMP link status processing only for the specified
network interface in the VPLS instance.
- host1(config-if)#bridge-group customer1 snmp-trap
