Protocols and Applications Supported by the MPC3E on MX Series Routers

 

Table 1 lists the first supported Junos OS Release for MPC3E protocols and applications for the MX240, MX480, MX960, MX2010, and MX2020 routers. The protocols and applications support feature parity with Junos OS Release 10.4.

Note

The MX2010 and M2020 routers support protocols and applications in Junos OS 12.3 and later. Features added after the Junos OS 12.3 release are supported on the MX2010 and MX2020 routers in the release indicated.

A dash indicates that the protocol or application is not supported.
