Additional Features

Support for the following features has been extended to these platforms.

  • BGP, OSPF, and OSPFv3 authentication and encryption using manual IPsec SA (MX240, MX480, and MX960 with MX-SPC3, SRX Series devices and vSRX running iked process). OSPF for IPv6, also known as OSPF version 3 (OSPFv3), does not have built-in authentication to ensure that routing packets are not altered and re-sent to the router. Starting in Junos OS Release 22.2R1, you can use IPsec to encrypt and secure BGP, OSPF, and OSPFv3 packets.

    To configure IPsec for BGP, OSPF, and OSPFv3, define a security association (SA) with the security-association sa-name configuration option at the [edit security ipsec] hierarchy level for both MX Series and SRX Series platforms. You then apply the configured SA to the BGP, OSPF, and OSPFv3 configurations.

    [See security-association.]

    To view the configured IPsec SAs for BGP, OSPF, and OSPFv3:


    We do not support this feature with BGP, OSPF, and OSPFv3 over the secure tunnel (st0) interface.

    [See Understanding OSPFv3 Authentication, Using IPsec to Secure OSPFv3 Networks (CLI Procedure), and Example: Configuring IPsec Authentication for an OSPF Interface.]

  • Collect ON_CHANGE BGP RIB telemetry statistics and BGP neighbor telemetry with sharding (MX Series, PTX Series and QFX Series)

    [See Telemetry Sensor Explorer.]

  • Inband Flow Analyzer (IFA) 2.0 (QFX5120-48YM and QFX5120-48T)—We've extended support for IFA 2.0 to the QFX5120-48YM and QFX5120-48T switches. You can now configure the MTU and maximum clip length for IFA packets on all QFX5120 switches. You can also set the IFA clock source on the QFX5120-48YM switch.

    [See Inband Flow Analyzer (IFA) 2.0 Probe for Real-Time Performance Monitoring.]

  • Lightweight PE-CE Loop Detection on EVPN-VXLAN Fabrics (EX4400-48MP, EX4400-48P, EX9200, MX240, MX480, MX960, and MX10003)

    [See EVPN-VXLAN Lightweight Leaf to Server Loop Detection.]

  • Layer 2 Protocol Tunneling (L2PT) (MX240, MX480, and MX960 with MPC10E-15C-MRATE and MPC10E-10C-MRATE; MX2010 and MX2020 with MX2K-MPC11E)

    [See Layer 2 Protocol Tunneling.]

  • Support for BPDU protection for EVPN-VXLAN (EX4300-48MP, EX4400, EX4650, QFX5110, QFX5120, QFX10002-60C, QFX10008, and QFX10016)—Starting in Junos OS Release 22.2R1, we support bridge protocol data unit (BPDU) protection for EVPN-VXLAN.

    [See Understanding BPDU Protection for EVPN-VXLAN.]

  • Support for EVPN routing policies (EX4400-24MP, EX4400-24P, EX4400-24T, EX4400-48F, EX4400-48MP, EX4400-48P, and EX4400-48T)—We've extended support of policy filter configurations for EVPN routes to the listed EX4400 switches.

    [See Routing policies for EVPN .]

  • Support for EVPN-VPWS (MX240, MX480, MX960, MX2010, and MX2020 with MPC10E line card)—We’ve extended support for EVPN-VPWS to the listed platforms as follows:

    • EVPN-VPWS with single-active or all-active multihoming capabilities and inter-autonomous system (AS) options associated with BGP-signaled VPNs.

    • EVPN VPWS with Pseudowire Headend Termination (PWHT) on Layer 3 VPN with single-active or all-active multihoming.

    • EVPN VPWS with PWHT on VPLS with single-active multihoming.

    EVPN VPWS with flexible cross connect (FXC) is not supported on the listed platforms in Junos OS Release 22.2R1.

    [See Overview of VPWS with EVPN Signaling Mechanisms and Overview of Headend Termination for EVPN VPWS.]

  • Support for flexible tunnel interfaces (MX304, MX10008, and MX10016)

    [See Flexible Tunnel Interfaces Overview.]

  • Support for flow-based telemetry (QFX5120). You can configure flow-based telemetry (FBT) for VXLAN-encapsulated traffic only. FBT for VXLANs enables per-flow-level analytics for VXLAN-encapsulated traffic that uses either a centrally routed bridging (CRB) overlay or an edge-routed bridging (ERB) overlay. FBT for VXLANs uses inline monitoring services to create flows, collect them, and export them to a collector.

    FBT for VXLANs differs from the current FBT feature in the following ways:

    • Only IRB interfaces are supported.

    • Only one inline-monitoring instance and one collector are supported.

    • The flow table keys include fields important for VXLANs, and the IPv4 and IPv6 flow table keys include different fields.

    • You cannot configure an option template identifier or a forwarding class.

    [See Flow-Based Telemetry for VXLANs.]

  • Support for Routing-Engine-based traffic sampling (MX10K-LC9600 line card)

    [See Configuring Traffic Sampling on MX, M and T Series Routers.]

  • Supported transceivers, optical interfaces, and DAC cables Select your product in the Hardware Compatibility Tool to view supported transceivers, optical interfaces, and DAC cables for your platform or interface module. We update the HCT and provide the first supported release information when the optic becomes available.

  • Symmetric integrated routing and bridging (IRB) with EVPN Type 2 routes (EX4400, EX4650, EX9204, EX9208, EX9214, MX Series, vMX, QFX5110, QFX5120, QFX10002, QFX10002-60C, QFX10008, and QFX10016). We support this feature only with MAC-VRF EVPN routing instance configurations and MAC-VRF service types vlan-based and vlan-aware. [See Symmetric Integrated Routing and Bridging with EVPN Type 2 Routes in EVPN-VXLAN Fabrics and irb-symmetric-routing.]
