    Release Information

    Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 14.1.

    Description

    Configure the router to signal the capability to pop the flow label in the receive direction to the remote provider edge (PE) router.

    The flow-aware transport of pseudowires (FAT) flow labels enable load-balancing of MPLS packets across equal-cost multipath (ECMP) paths or link aggregation groups (LAGs) without the need for deep packet inspection of the payload. FAT flow labels can be used for LDP-signaled forwarding equivalence class (FEC 128 and FEC 129) pseudowires for virtual private LAN service (VPLS) and virtual private wire service (VPWS) networks.

    Note:

    • Starting with Junos OS Release 16.1, flow-label-receive statement is supported for BGP L2VPN and BGP VPLS.

    • The flow-label-receive statement is not supported in OAM CFM session over L2Circuit.
