Configuring an Access Pseudowire That Terminates into a VPLS Routing Instance

Terminating the access pseudowire into a VPLS instance is supported for both LDP-VPLS and BGP-VPLS.

To configure an access pseudowire that terminates into VPLS on the service node using LT-IFLS and mesh-groups:

  1. Configure the logical tunnel interfaces or the lt-ifls.

    Logical tunnel interface pairs are used for stitching Layer 2 network elements to VPLS when an access pseudowire terminates into a VPLS routing instance.

  2. Configure the VPLS routing instance.

    To terminate the access pseudowire into a VPLS routing instance, use mesh groups as follows:

In LDP-VPLS and BGP-VPLS, the Layer 2 circuit only needs to be configured on the access PE (SN1) with a virtual circuit ID, and the corresponding VPLS ID is configured on the service node for terminating the pseudowire. Local switching can be used on the service node to switch the traffic from multiple pseudowires into the desired VPLS routing instance.

Use the show vpls connections operational mode command to verify termination of an access pseudowire into a VPLS routing instance.
