Layer 3 VPN Platform Support

Layer 3 VPNs are supported on most combinations of Juniper Networks routing and switching platforms and PICs capable of running the JUNOS Software.

MX Series routers configured to be in Ethernet services mode can support some of the Junos OS Layer 3 VPN features. For Layer 3 VPNs, Ethernet services mode supports configuring a loopback interface for a VPN routing and forwarding (VRF) instance. You can configure up to two VRF instances in Ethernet services mode. Each VRF instance can handle up to 10,000 routes. The ping mpls l3vpn operational mode command is also supported.
