We are planning to deploy 7600s (testing to be done) for L2 and L3 services. Has anyone out there found some issues with both the layers functioning in unison on the same.

We just deployed 10 7609s with the new RSP-720 and ES20 10Gig line cards with L2 and L3 services and it works great. The only problems we had were with the SRB code and multicast. If you're running MPLS, there are several bugs in the SRB1 and 2 code related to multicast. We are currently waiting on SRB3 to be released.

Hello Charles,

Thanks for you reply, actually I wanted to know more specific details, like IOS and modules being used by others, which you have stated.

I am planning to go for SIP-200 and SIP-400 with STM-1 POS, 2xGIG and FE8 modules.

Services would be EoMPLS, including VPLS and MPLS/BGP IP VPNs.
