MPLS L2 VPN - Any to Any Interworking

The L2 VPN Interworking feature supports Ethernet, 802.1Q(VLAN), Frame Relay, ATM AAL5, and PPP attachment circuits over MPLS.

The L2 VPN Interworking function is implemented in two modes.


Bridged Interworking Mode

In bridged interworking mode, Ethernet frames are extracted from the AC and sent over the pseudo wire. AC frames that are not Ethernet are dropped. In the case of a VLAN, the VLAN tag is removed, leaving an untagged Ethernet frame. This interworking functionality is implemented by configuring the interworking ethernet command under the pseudo-wire class configuration mode.


Roted Interworking Mode

In routed interworking, IP packets are extracted from the AC and sent over the pseudo wire. AC frames are dropped if they do not contain the IPv4 packets. This interworking functionality is implemented by configuring the interworking ip command under the pseudo-wire class configuration mode.
