    Using a QFX10000 Switch with 6PE

    Using 6PE allows service providers to provide new revenue-generating services to customers by offering native IPv6 connectivity over an MPLS core network without having to configure or upgrade the core routers or change the existing IPv4 and MPLS services. To use 6PE you configure dual-stack (IPv4 and IPv6) provider edge (PE) devices to tunnel IPv6 traffic over MPLS.

    When you use a QFX10000 switch as a PE device in a 6PE topology, you must enable family inet6 on the core-facing interfaces that will be used for the IPv6 traffic. If you do not do so, these interfaces drop the IPv6 traffic.
