policy (Protocols Multipoint LDP)


Hierarchy Level


Multipoint LDP (M-LDP) in-band signaling enables you to carry multicast traffic across an existing IP/MPLS backbone, while avoiding the use of PIM in the provider core.

On the egress nodes of the point-to-multipoint LSP, specify an M-LDP join translation filter policy where PIM messages are translated into M-LDP FEC bindings. The policy statement is needed when internal BGP (IBGP) is not available in the core site or to override IBGP-based LSP root detection.

The filter policy is configured at the [edit policy-options] hierarchy level. The policy generally specifies one or more source-address filters and the point-to-multipoint LDP root IP address using the p2mp-lsp-root policy action.
