VPLS support on 6500

Hi Irfan,

it will not work in your case as you are missing a WAN card facing the core (OSM, SIP-400, ES+ etc.).

You need one of those cards which will take care of MPLS label imposition and disposition, while the PFC/DFC controlled card facing the CE will take care of L2 forwarding and MAC address learning.

Thanks Riccardo

Will the WS-X6708-10G-3C line card support EoMPLS? Please can you confirm

Many thanks

Hi Irfan,

the answer is yes, with WS-X6708-10G-3C you've got PFC based MPLS:

please note, that DFC3A does not support MPLS, but all other DFCs do.

HTH,

Ivan.
