Routed VPLS in Juniper

‎11-10-2017 01:10 PM

Dear Experts,

 

I need to interoperate NOKIA (Alcatel-Lucent) and Juniper (I believe SRX)

 

On Nokia I am running routed-VPLS. Can I do that on Juniper? Cisco can do it as well. I read somethig about VPLS Routing, or VPLS integrated Routing but I am not sure...

 

Basicalle routed-MPLS is the following: Allows a VPLS instance to be associated with a VRF. In other words, Inside a VRF, we communicate two interfaces (in two PEs for instance) in a VRF via a pseudowire (VPLS).

 

Thanks a lot!!

with routed-vpls we communicate internally both VPLS and VPRN without needing an external hairpin.

Hi, 

 

This is possibe by configuring an irb routing-interface on the vpls instance and then the same irb interface can be added to any RIs/vrfs.

set routing-instances <vpls> routing-interface irb.x

https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/junos/topics/task/configuration/vpls-irb-solutions.html

I think Juniper had it before ALU/Nokia.

 

Cheers,

I am running some interoperability test with a customer: NOKIA - Juniper SRX

 

I am not entirely sure whether this is supported in SRX300, apparently it does.

 

https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/junos/topics/concept/security-integrated-routing-bridgin...

 

Basically I will connect VRF between NOKIA/JUNIPER, and enable routed-mpls to emulate SHAM-links to send OSPF routes as IA.

The problem now is that the Interface is UP DOWN (the irb).

 

We did what was suggested: we created an interface in VPLS (and it is UP UP), and then added to the VRF (it is UP DOWN). We do not why....

Since this thread is closed, can you pl create new thread with your config and appropriate outputs?
