vpls-id-list (protocols vpls mesh-group)


Hierarchy Level


The vpls-id-list option allows you to configure multiple pseudowires under LDP-VPLS neighbor by creating one pseudowire per virtual circuit id. This combination of neighbor and virtual circuit ID must be unique across the l2circuit and all local LDP-VPLS instances. The pseudowire will terminate in the specified mesh-group.

As with other pseudowires, the pseudowires created here will signal the remote PE via LDP label mapping message. For each pseudowire created under a neighbor, VPLS will create a VT/LSI interface and add both it and the and label route to the mpls.0 table. Note that you can create multiple pseudowires between the same pair of PEs in LDP-VPLS for a single routing instances only.

Enable local-switching along with vpls-id-list to allow local switching of traffic (including BUM traffic) between multiple pseudo wires. This can also eliminate the need to have a dedicated mesh-group for each LDP spoke pseudo wire (which has a limit of 14), and provide support for H-VPLS in EVP-LAN and EP-LAN topologies.


vc-id-numbers—The virtual circuit ID for the PE pair. This ID can be any number in the range of 1 to 4294967295.
