Full VRF or VRF-Lite?

For VRF-Lite, 3560/3560E, 3750/3750-E, 4900M.

Minimum Cisco IOS Release for Major Features

Hi thank you for the quick reply, I don't really know what's the difference.

I want to create routing contexts on the same physical equipment.

Thank you

Hello Yann,

the 3560 model should support 8 VRFs

see

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/switches/ps5718/ps5528/product_data_sheet09186a00801f3d7d.html

the 3560-8PC with 8 ports is the smallest one but a 24 ports model can be a better choice.

You need also the ip services image

>>To use multi-VRF CE, you must have the IP services image installed on your switch.

Edit:

as Leo noted this is for VRF lite no mpls support.

Hope to help

Giuseppe
