Bridged RFC 1483 on native IOS C6K PA-A3

we plan to terminate a Bridged RFC 1483 PVC from a Catalyst LANE blade on a catalyst 6K with native IOS and PA-A3

the three choices would be:

- IRB - not supported on C6K according to the release notes

- RBE - not available on this platform, 6400

- BPVC - not available on this platform, GSR & 7500

what do you all think?

Re: Bridged RFC 1483 on native IOS C6K PA-A3

BPVCs are supported by the 4xOC3 and 1xOC12 ATM line cards for the GSR and by the PA-A3-T3/E3/OC3 for the 7500 series. The GSR only runs the 11.2GS or 12.0S trains, and thus only supports BPVCs. The 7500 series runs Cisco IOS mainline and technology releases other than the S train, and thus supports IRB and route-bridge encapsulation in addition to BPVCs.

Thanks for your answer.

Later I also found that the C6K can do it, see:
