Description

Enable multiprotocol BGP (MP-BGP) by configuring BGP to carry network layer reachability information (NLRI) for address families other than unicast IPv4, to specify MP-BGP to carry NLRI for the IPv6 address family, or to carry NLRI for VPNs.

Options

any—Configure the family type to be both unicast and multicast.

evpn—Configure NLRI parameters for Ethernet VPNs (EVPNs).

inet—Configure NLRI parameters for IPv4.

inet6—Configure NLRI parameters for IPv6.

inet-mdt—Configure NLRI parameters for the multicast distribution tree (MDT) subaddress family identifier (SAFI) for IPv4 traffic in Layer 3 VPNs.

inet-mvpn—Configure NLRI parameters for IPv4 for multicast VPNs.

inet6-mvpn—Configure NLRI parameters for IPv6 for multicast VPNs.

inet-vpn—Configure NLRI parameters for IPv4 for Layer 3 VPNs.

inet6-vpn—Configure NLRI parameters for IPv6 for Layer 3 VPNs.

inet6-vpn—Configure NLRI parameters for IPv6 for Layer 3 VPNs.

iso-vpn—Configure NLRI parameters for IS-IS for Layer 3 VPNs.

l2vpn—Configure NLRI parameters for IPv4 for MPLS-based Layer 2 VPNs and VPLS.

labeled-unicast—Configure the family type to be labeled-unicast. This means that the BGP peers are being used only to carry the unicast routes that are being used by labeled-unicast for resolving the labeled-unicast routes. This statement is supported only with inet and inet6.

multicast—Configure the family type to be multicast. This means that the BGP peers are being used only to carry the unicast routes that are being used by multicast for resolving the multicast routes.

unicast—Configure the family type to be unicast. This means that the BGP peers only carry the unicast routes that are being used for unicast forwarding purposes. The default family type is unicast.

segment-routing-te—Configure the family type to be segment routing traffic engineering. This means that BGP peers only carry segment routing policies for traffic steering.

The remaining statements are explained separately. Search for a statement in CLI Explorer or click a linked statement in the Syntax section for details.
