ATM for Subscriber Access Encapsulation Types Overview

 

To enable subscriber access to an MX Series router over an ATM network, you can create any of the following configurations on Modular Port Concentrator/Modular Interface Card (MPC/MIC) interfaces that use the ATM MIC with SFP:

  • PPP-over-Ethernet-over-ATM (PPPoE-over ATM) with a dynamic or static PPPoE (pp0) subscriber interface over a static ATM underlying interface

  • Routed IP-over-ATM (IPoA) with a static IPv4 or IPv6 subscriber interface over a static ATM underlying interface

  • Bridged IP-over-Ethernet-over-ATM (IPoE-over-ATM) with a static IPv4 or IPv6 subscriber interface over a static ATM underlying interface

  • PPP-over-ATM (PPPoA) with a static PPP subscriber interface over a static ATM underlying interface

  • Concurrent PPP-over-Ethernet-over-ATM interfaces and IP-over-Ethernet-over-ATM interfaces on a single ATM PVC

As part of the configuration procedure, you must specify the appropriate encapsulation type for your configuration on the ATM logical interface.

Table 1 lists and describes the encapsulation type you must specify as part of the encapsulation statement when you configure the ATM logical interface for each supported configuration.
