Junos sub interface number limited to 16385

‎06-11-2015 12:24 AM

Is there a good reason why Junos limits its logical interfaces to 16385 ? i would love to use a format  like the numbering schema to facilitate int.xxxxyyyy  when using qinq which helps with clearly identifying interfaces / clients.


there must be  technical reason why this limitation exists  , anyone have any idea as the alternative network vendor alows you to go to huge vlan numbers.

Please Mark My Solution Accepted if it Helped, Kudos are Appreciated Too

Currently unit numbers above 16K are reserved for special purpose use only. Not possible to allow these units for regular interfaces. Please contact your Juniper SE if you need higher number available to work on a enhancement request.


If this worked for you please flag my post as an "Accepted Solution" so others can benefit. A kudo would be cool if you think I earned it.
