Configuring S-VLAN Tunnels for Layer 2 Services

When you configure Ethernet or bridged Ethernet layer 2 services over MPLS, you can use the svlan id command with the any keyword to create a stacked VLAN (S-VLAN) tunnel that uses a single interface to tunnel traffic from multiple VLANs across an MPLS network. The S-VLAN tunnel enables multiple VLANs, each configured with a different VLAN ID tag and a common S-VLAN ID, to share a common VC label while traversing an MPLS network.

You can use the svlan id command with the any keyword only with the mpls-relay command or the route interface command to configure layer 2 services over MPLS.

To configure S-VLAN tunnels for Ethernet/VLAN layer 2 services over MPLS:

  1. Configure the Ethernet/VLAN interface.
    host1(config)#interface fastEthernet 8/1host1(config-if)#encapsulation vlanhost1(config-if)#interface fastEthernet 8/1.1
  2. Create the S-VLAN tunnel and assign the S-VLAN Ethertype. For example, the following commands tunnel traffic from VLANs configured with an S-VLAN ID of 33 and any VLAN ID to the same destination across the MPLS network.
    host1(config-if)#svlan id 33 any host1(config-if)#svlan ethertype 8100
  3. Specify MPLS tunneling by using the appropriate command. For example:
    host1(config-if)#route interface tunnel mpls:tunnel3 45


    host1(config-if)#mpls-relay 45
  4. Repeat these steps, using unique values to configure the S-VLAN tunnel and MPLS on the remote PE router.
