traffic-engineering (Protocols BGP)


Hierarchy Level


Enable traffic engineering address family. This generates a multiprotocol address family indicator (AFI) and a subsequent address family identifier (SAFI) to be negotiated with the BGP peers.

The BGP network layer reachability information (NLRI) information is exchanged between the peers only when the traffic engineering AFI and SAFI are shared between them. If the peers do not agree on the use of the AFI and SAFI, the connection between the peers is terminated.



Include BGP-TE NLRI.
