    Local Cross-Connects for VPWS Overview

    You configure a local cross-connect between two local customer sites by first configuring the two local sites and then configuring the correct local and remote site IDs on the two local interfaces that you are cross-connecting. Figure 1 illustrates cross-connects by showing a portion of a sample VPWS topology.

    VPWS Cross-Connects

    The following example shows the creation of a cross-connect between sites Westford and Boston. On one customer-facing interface, Westford is considered local and Boston is remote; on the other customer-facing interface, Boston is considered local and Westford is remote. From the perspective of the PE router, both sites are local.

    Multihoming is not applicable for VPWS local cross-connects because the local and remote CE devices are connected to the same PE.
