    Interconnecting a Layer 3 VPN Service with a VPLS Service

    You can stitch or interconnect a Layer 3 VPN service with a VPLS service. You must enable the stitching functionality to perform this interconnection. If the stitching capability is enabled, when you select the interfaces for the endpoints added to a service, only the integrated routing and bridging (IRB) physical and logical interfaces are available for selection. If you select a physical IRB interface, a new logical interface is created with the logical unit identifier of the interface you specify. If you select a logical IRB interface, the existing logical interface is used to create the service.

    You can stitch or interconnect a Layer 3 VPN service with a VPLS service during the creation or modification of a Layer 3 VPN service order. Follow the steps outlined in for performing the tasks in the Service Settings and Node Settings pages of the wizard. To enable the stitching of a Layer 3 VPN service with a VPLS service, you can select the Stitch check box for a device associated with the service order on the Site Settings page of the Layer 3 VPN service order creation or modification wizard.

    Before you begin:

    • Ensure that you have already created a Layer 3 VPN service.

    • Complete the configuration of settings on the Service Settings and Node Settings pages of the service order creation or modification wizard.

    To interconnect a Layer 3 VPN service with a VPLS service:

    1. Select Service View from the View Selector. The workspaces that are applicable to routing and tunnel services are displayed.
    2. From the Junos Space user interface, click the Deploy icon in the Connectivity Services Director banner. The functionalities that you can configure in this mode are displayed in the task pane.
    3. From the View pane, click the plus sign (+) to expand the tree and select the type of service.
    4. Click the plus sign (+) beside Connectivity to view services based on protocols.
      • Expand the L3VPN Services tree to select a Layer 3 VPN Ethernet service.

      • Expand the P2P Services tree to select a point-to-point service.

      • Expand the VPLS Services tree to select a VPLS service.

    5. From the Tasks pane, select Service Provisioning > Deploy Services.

      The Manage Network Services page is displayed in the top half of the right pane, which displays all of the configured services. The Manage Service Orders page is displayed in the bottom half of the right pane, which displays all of the service orders corresponding to a service.

    6. From the Manage Network Services page, select New > L3VPN Service.

      The Create L3VPN Service Order window appears and shows a filtered inventory view of only those published service definitions designed to work with multipoint Ethernet services. You can select the service definition based on the signaling type.

      See Creating a Full Mesh Layer 3 VPN Ethernet Service Order and Creating a Hub-and-Spoke Layer 3 VPN Service Order for detailed information about the settings that you can configure on the Service Settings and Node Settings pages of the wizard.

    7. After you complete the configuration of settings on the Service Settings and Node Settings pages of the service order creation or modification wizard, click Site Settings at the top of the wizard page.

      The Site Settings page is displayed.

    8. Select the check box beside the device for which you want to enable the stitching of VPLS and L3VPN services.

      The device that you select is available for stitching.

    9. Select the Stitch check box to enable the interconnection of the Layer 3 VPN service with a VPLS service.
    10. Click inside the Interface Name field to select an IRB interface. A popup dialog box is displayed with the list of all configured IRB interfaces. If the stitching capability is enabled, when you select the interfaces for the endpoints added to a service, only the IRB physical and logical interfaces are available for selection.
    11. Select a physical or logical IRB interface that you want to use to stitch the Layer 3 VPN service with a VPLS service.

      The selected interface is used for interconnection of the services.

    12. (Optional) If you select a physical IRB interface, you can specify the logical unit of the interface in the UNIT ID field.

      The specified logical IRB interface is used for stitching the services.

    13. For service orders associated with a service definition that contains a service template, click Next to modify the template settings.
    14. Click Review to examine and modify the settings as necessary.
    15. Click Finish when you have completed examining the settings to confirm the creation of the service order.
    16. You can proceed to enable the stitching functionality for the same IRB interface with the VPLS service. See Interconnecting a VPLS Service with a Layer 3 VPN Service for detailed information about enabling the stitching functionality for the VPLS service.
