MPLS Feature Support on QFX Series and EX4600 Switches

 

This topic describes the MPLS features that are supported on the QFX Series, EX4600, EX4650 switches. Be sure to check for any exceptions to this support in MPLS Limitations on QFX Series and EX4600 Switches. Configuring unsupported statements on the switch does not affect its operation.

Note

EX4600 and EX4650 switches use the same chipset as QFX5100 switches—this is why EX Series switches are included here along with QFX Series switches. Other EX Series switches also support MPLS but with a different feature set.

Supported Features

The tables in this section lists the MPLS features that are supported on the QFX Series, EX4600, EX4650 switches, and the Junos OS release in which they were introduced. Table 1 lists the features for QFX10000 switches. Table 2 lists the features for QFX3500, QFX5100, QFX5120, QFX5110, QFX5200, QFX5210 switches.Table 3 lists the features for EX4600 and EX4650 switches.
