Configuring MPLS over VLAN

To configure MPLS over VLAN over an Ethernet interface:

  1. Specify a Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, or 10-Gigabit Ethernet port.
    host1(config)#interface fastEthernet 4/0
  2. Specify VLAN as the encapsulation method.
    host1(config-if)#encapsulation vlan

    The VLAN major interface is added.

  3. Create a VLAN subinterface by adding a subinterface number to the interface identification command.
    host1(config-if)#interface fastEthernet 4/1.1
  4. Do one of the following:
    • Assign a VLAN ID for the subinterface.
      host1(config-if)#vlan id 400
    • Assign a VLAN ID and the optional unique MAC address for the subinterface.
      host1(config-if)#vlan id 400 mac-address 0090.1a01.1234
  5. Enable MPLS on the interface.
    host1(config-if)#mpls
