Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Releases 15.1F6 and 17.1R1.


Bypass the specified wavelength on this IPLC module. When you bypass a wavelength, it does not terminate at the local node, it is passed on to the next IPLC node. Use this statement to control and manage express traffic at intermediate, two-degree IPLC nodes.


Bypassing wavelengths is supported only on IPLC two-degree nodes running express traffic. For more information, see Configuring a Two-Degree Node for Express Traffic.


wss-express-inBypass the specified wavelength.

You can bypass only wavelengths that are expressed-in at intermediate, two-degree IPLC nodes.


Bypassing a wavelength is a two-step process:

  1. Configure the two-degree IPLC node for express traffic. See Configuring a Two-Degree Node for Express Traffic.

  2. Bypass the wavelength.

    For example, to bypass wavelength 1550.12 on the IPLC module in slot 2 of the two-degree IPLC node:
