Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 13.2.

Support in Layer 3 VPN routers is extended to BGP PIC with multiple routes in the global tables such as inet and inet6 unicast, and inet and inet6 labeled unicast in Junos OS Release 15.1.

Support for Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) introduced in Junos OS Release 16.1.


In an MPLS VPN Core network, enable BGP Prefix-Independent Convergence (PIC) Edge to install a VPN route in the forwarding table for use as an alternate path when a provider edge (PE) router fails or connectivity to a PE router is lost. This alternate link is used until global convergence through the interior gateway protocol (IGP) occurs. Both OSPF with LDP or RSVP, and IS-IS with LDP or RSVP are supported.
