Release Information

Statement introduced in JUNOS Release 10.1 for MX Series routers.


For Layer 2 networks, configure Multiple VLAN Registration Protocol (MVRP) to dynamically share VLAN information and dynamically configure needed VLANs. Maintaining VLAN configurations based on active VLANs reduces the amount of traffic traveling in the network, saving network resources. MVRP is configured on trunk interfaces.

The remaining statements are explained separately.


MVRP is disabled by default.
