Hierarchy Level


Accept more than one million Layer 3 VPN BGP updates with unique inner VPN labels. The neighboring PE routers are typically from other vendors and configured to assign a unique inner label to each Layer 3 VPN BGP route.


This statement is supported on Juniper Networks routers containing only MPCs and MICs and with chassis network services configured with the enhanced-ip setting.


You cannot configure the extended-space statement on a MX system with a MS-DPC unless you have also configured FIB localization with the MS-DPC set as a FIB-remote. This is because the MS-DPC cannot install nexthop in extended-space so the use of a default nexthop pointing to a FIB-local FPC is necessary to ensure proper data forwarding.


This statement is disabled by default.
