Hi, I'm student and I begin a VPLS project. The aim is to interconnect different sites by VPLS using MPLS backbone. I have already build a MPLS backbone and study many docs about VPLS principes, implementation, and design. However I don't find a lot of thnigs about platerform supported. I think it's not possible on "little" router like 28xx but I'm not sure, I saw on cisco features VPLS build only on 65xx series and 7xxx series.
1. Do you confirm me that ??
2. What IOS version can I use ??
yes VPLS requires multilayer switches like C6500, 7600, ME 6524
there is a nice tool that is helpful for this kind of searches named feature navigator
do search by feature, type VPLS
choice the basic feature that is the expansion of VPLS
in the list of supporting platforms you will see C6500, C7600, ME 6524 and 12000 routers (these with IOS or IOS XR)
if you select C6500 sup720 you can see a list of images that should support VPLS
Hope to help
