802.1Q VLAN IDs and Ethernet Interface Types

You can partition the router into up to 4095 different VLANs—depending on the router model and the physical interface types—by associating logical interfaces with specific VLAN IDs.

VLAN ID 0 is reserved for tagging the priority of frames. VLAN IDs 1 through 511 are reserved for normal VLANs. VLAN IDs 512 and above are reserved for VLAN circuit cross-connect (CCCs).

For Gigabit Ethernet IQ interfaces and Gigabit Ethernet PICs with SFPs (except the 10-port Gigabit Ethernet PIC and the built-in Gigabit Ethernet port on the M7i router), you can configure flexible Ethernet services encapsulation on the physical interface. With flexible Ethernet services encapsulation, VLAN IDs from 1 through 511 are no longer reserved for normal VLANs.

Table 1 lists VLAN ID range by interface type.

Note: For Gigabit Ethernet IQ and Gigabit Ethernet PICs with SFPs (except the built-in Gigabit Ethernet port on the M7i router), VLAN IDs on a single interface can differ from each other.

Because IS-IS has an 8-bit limit for broadcast multiaccess media, you cannot set up more than 255 adjacencies over Gigabit Ethernet using VLAN tagging. For more information, see the JUNOS Routing Protocols Configuration Guide.
