Static and Dynamic VLAN Subscriber Interfaces over Aggregated Ethernet Overview

 

You can configure a subscriber interface represented by a static virtual LAN (VLAN) stacked on a two-link aggregated Ethernet logical interface. You must configure the aggregated Ethernet logical interface on Enhanced Queuing Dense Port Concentrators (EQ DPCs) or MPC/MIC interfaces in MX Series 5G Universal Routing Platforms.

A static or dynamic VLAN subscriber interface over aggregated Ethernet can also support one-to-one active/backup link redundancy, depending on how you configure the underlying aggregated Ethernet interface.

To configure a static or dynamic VLAN subscriber interface over aggregated Ethernet, make sure you understand the following concepts.

Guidelines for Configuring an Aggregated Ethernet Logical Interface to Support a Static or Dynamic VLAN Subscriber Interface

The following guidelines for configuring an aggregated Ethernet logical interface also apply to configuring a static or dynamic VLAN subscriber interface stacked on a two-link aggregated Ethernet logical interface:

  • If you need to support one-to-one active/backup link redundancy, configure the aggregated Ethernet interface in link protection mode, which requires that the two underlying physical interfaces be designated as primary and backup links.

  • In addition, if you need to support one-to-one active/backup link redundancy at the DPC or MPC level, configure the aggregated Ethernet interface on physical interfaces that reside on different EQ DPCs or MPCs.

Note

One-to-one active/backup DPC redundancy is also supported with firewall filters and policy filters for static non-VLAN interfaces configured on an aggregated Ethernet logical interfaces, provided LACP is not active.
