Release Information

Statement introduced in JUNOS Release 10.2.

Description

(MX Series routers only) Enable you to switch an LSP away from a network node using a bypass LSP. This feature could be used in maintenance of active networks when a network device needs to be replaced without interrupting traffic passing through the network. The LSPs can be either static or dynamic. Configure this statement only after you have configured and committed the always-mark-connection-protection-tlv statement.

The always-mark-connection-protection-tlv statement marks all OAM traffic transiting this interface in preparation for switching the traffic to an alternate path based on the OAM functionality. When you configure the switch-away-lsps statement, traffic is switched to the bypass LSP.

Required Privilege Level

routing—To view this statement in the configuration.
