local-switching (VPLS)


Hierarchy Level


Allows you to terminate multiple Layer 2 circuit pseudowires at a single VPLS mesh group. Note that when using vpls-id-list, you can enable local-switching to allow local switching of traffic (including BUM traffic) between multiple pseudo wires. Enabling local-switching also eliminates the need to have a dedicated mesh-group for each LDP spoke pseudo wire (which has a limit of 14).
