Configuring VLAN Interfaces for the Layer 2 Wholesale Solution

Clients access the Layer 2 Wholesale network through a specific interface. After they access this interface, and when they are authenticated, VLANs are dynamically created to carry the client traffic.

To configure a VLAN interface for dynamic access of clients:

  1. Access the physical interface that you want to use for dynamically creating VLAN interfaces.
  2. Specify the desired VLAN tagging.

    This example uses flexible VLAN tagging to simultaneously support transmission of 802.1Q VLAN single-tag and dual-tag frames on logical interfaces on the same Ethernet port.

  3. Specify that you want to automatically configure VLAN interfaces.
  4. Specify that you want to configure single VLANs.
  5. Define the VLAN ranges for the configuration.
  6. Specify the dynamic VLAN profile that you want the interface to use.
  7. Specify that any type of VLAN Ethernet packet is accepted by the interface.
  8. Repeat steps for any other interfaces that you want to use for creating VLANs.
  9. Specify the encapsulation type for the VLAN interfaces.
