A9K-IVRF-LIC Infrastructure VRF LC License. Support up to 8 VRFs
A9K-MOD80-AIP-TR L3 VPN license for MOD80 Linecard, Transport Optimized
If i want use L3 MPLS VPN and L2 MPLS VPN. Do i need buy these two license? Could somebody give some detail description about these two license?
And what's the vpls performance about line card on asr9k. Such as A9K-MOD80-TR and A9K-40GE-L.
I will answer the first part of your question, because one of my client was building a carrier ethernet network and decided to implement also some L3 VPNs.
Without any license you can terminate L2 VPNs. For L3 VPNs you need a license per slot (or box with ASR 9001).
You need only one license. If you need only 8 VRFs per A9K-MOD80-TR the first license (A9K-IVRF-LIC). If you need more VRFs for your L3 VPN infrastructure, you need to buy the A9K-MOD80-AIP-TR license.
You don't need a license for L2 VPNs (including VPLS)
You need one license per line card for L3 VPNs.
For the second query, check below website:
