VPLS Support

Hi there,

I've been searching the forums attempting to find a definitive answer to the following question:

Is VPLS supported in the 6500/7600 without the use of OSM modules?

The hardware I'm working with are two 6509 w/ Sup720-3BXL and PFC3BXL in each.

Re: VPLS Support

Hello,

the OSM is not needed any more for VPLS.

Have a look at "Configuring the Gigabit Ethernet SPAs" for the 7600

and for the 6500

Re: VPLS Support

You either need an OSM or a SIP 600 to support VPLS on the 7600.

Hope this helps,

Is there any new 7600 series router with Sup 32 tweaked for Metro which will support VPLS without the need for OSM or SIP. If yes, can you let me know where I can find some information on that ? This is a rumour that Cisco released this router about a week back.

VPLS is not yet supported on the sup32.

Re: VPLS Support

Will an OSM-4GE-WAN-GBIC work? Or would I need one of the Enhanced OSMs (like OSM-2+4GE-WAN-GBIC)?

Re: VPLS Support

Hello,

if we do believe the documentation then the OSM-2+4GE-WAN+ is required, as stated in

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/routers/ps368/products_configuration_guide_chapter09186a00801e5c06.html#wp1338226

Sorry for the bad news.
