Configuring VPWS on a PE Router

To configure a PE router to provide VPWS:

  1. Configure an VPWS instance.

    See Configuring BGP Multihoming for VPWS and (optional) Configuring a VPWS Instance

  2. Configure the customer-facing interfaces in the VPWS instance.

    See Configuring Customer-Facing Interfaces in the VPWS Instance

  3. (Optional) Configure local cross-connects.

    See Configuring a Local Cross-Connect for VPWS

  4. Configure the loopback interface and router ID for BGP.

    See Configuring the Loopback Interface and Router ID for BGP for VPWS

  5. Set up BGP signaling in the autonomous system that is configured to signal reachability for this VPWS instance.

    See Configuring BGP Signaling for VPWS

  6. Configure MPLS label-switched paths (LSPs) to connect the local and remote PE routers.

    See Configuring MPLS LSPs for VPWS
