Hierarchy Level


Select the type of VLAN service that the MAC-VRF routing instance provides. The selected option controls how the routing instance maps VLANs to the forwarding instances on the device.



Map one or more routing instances of type Virtual Switch to many VLAN IDs (VIDs) and multiple bridge tables. Each bridge table corresponds to a different VLAN.


Map one routing instance of type EVPN to one VLAN. Only one bridge table corresponds to one VLAN. If the VLAN consists of multiple VLAN IDs (VIDs), then you must configure VLAN translation for packets that are traveling to the Ethernet segment. You do this when you use a different VID per Ethernet segment on a provider edge device.


Map multiple broadcast domains to a single bridge domain. Multiple VLANs map to a single EVPN instance (EVI) and share the same bridge table in the MAC-VRF table. This configuration reduces the number of routes and labels stored in the table.
