Release Information

Statement introduced in JUNOS Release 9.4.


For Ethernet ring protection, each ring should have two interface ports: an east-interface and a west-interface.

Note: Always configure the east-interface first, before configuring the west-interface.

The interface must use the control channel's logical interface name. The control channel is a dedicated VLAN channel for the ring port.
