Hierarchy Level

Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 13.1.


Configure the number of pseudowire logical devices available to the router. The statement also defines the available interface names for the pseudowire interfaces.


When you subsequently configure the pseudowire interfaces, you must specify the interface names in the range from ps0 up to ps(device-count - 1). For example, if you set the maximum number of devices to 5, then you can only configure interfaces ps0, ps1, ps2, ps3, and ps4. If you specify an interface name outside that range, the pseudowire interface is not created.
