Example: Configuring Ethernet CFM on Bridge Connections

In this example, both the customer and service provider are running Ethernet CFM over a simple bridge network. The network is shown in Figure 1. The customer has configured Ethernet CFM on MX Series routers L2-CE1 and L2-CE2. The service provider has configured Ethernet CFM on MX Series routers PE1 and PE2.

Note: The configurations in this example are only partial examples of complete and functional router configurations. Do not copy these configurations and use them directly on an actual system.

The service provider is using CFM level 3 for the link between PE1 and PE2 and level 5 from one CE facing port to the other. The customer is using CFM level 7. The boundaries are marked with “up mep” and “down mep” CFM terminology in the figure.

Here are the configurations of CFM on the customer routers.

CFM on L2-CE1

Here are the configurations of CFM on the provider routers.
