Option: Configuring Local Interface Switching for a Layer 2 Circuit

You can terminate a Layer 2 circuit locally on an ingress PE router. To configure a locally terminated circuit, include the local-switching statement at the [edit protocols l2circuit] hierarchy level. Select the Layer 2 circuit interfaces you want to connect locally, specify any APS protect interfaces, and configure an end interface. To select the Layer 2 circuit interfaces that are connected locally, include the interface statement at the [edit protocols l2circuit local-switching] hierarchy level. To configure an end interface, include the end-interface statement at the [edit protocols l2circuit local-switching interface interface-name] hierarchy level. To specify APS protect interfaces, include the protect-interface statement at the [edit protocols l2circuit local-switching interface interface-name] or [edit protocols l2circuit local-switching interface interface-name end-interface interface-name] hierarchy levels.

[edit]protocols {l2circuit {local-switching {interface interface1 {protect-interface interface2;end-interface interface3 {protect-interface interface4;}}interface interface5 {protect-interface interface6;end-interface interface7 {protect-interface interface8;}}}}}
