PPPoE over VLAN Enhancements Configuration Limit Removal and ATM Support

PPPoE over VLAN Enhancements Configuration Limit Removal and ATM Support

Last Updated: December 3, 2012

The PPPoE over VLAN Enhancements: Configuration Limit Removal and ATM Support feature provides two enhancements to PPP over Ethernet (PPPoE) over IEEE 802.1Q VLAN functionality:

  • It removes the requirement for each PPPoE VLAN to be created on a subinterface. Removal of this requirement increases the number of VLANs that can be configured on a router to 4000 VLANs per interface.
  • It adds ATM permanent virtual circuit (PVC) support for PPPoE over VLAN traffic that uses bridged RFC 1483 encapsulation.

Restrictions for PPPoE over VLAN Enhancements Configuration Limit Removal and ATM Support

PPPoE over IEEE 802.1Q VLAN support can be configured without using subinterfaces on the PPPoE server only.

ATM PVC support for PPPoE over IEEE 802.1Q VLANs can be configured only on the PPPoE server.

It is not possible to shut down traffic for individual VLANs that are configured on the main interface. Individual VLANs that are configured on subinterfaces can be shut down.

A VLAN range can be configured on a main interface at the same time that VLANs outside the range are configured on subinterfaces of the same main interface. However, you cannot configure a specific VLAN on the main interface and on a subinterface at the same time.

Information About PPPoE over VLAN Configuration Limit Removal and ATM Support

To configure PPPoE over IEEE 802.1Q VLAN support on an interface rather than a subinterface, and to configure ATM support for PPPoE over IEEE 802.1Q VLANs, you should understand the following concepts:

PPPoE over VLAN Configuration Without Using Subinterfaces

The PPPoE over VLAN Enhancements: Configuration Limit Removal and ATM Support feature removes the requirement for each PPPoE VLAN to be created on a subinterface. Allowing more than one PPPoE VLAN to be configured on a main interface increases the number of VLANs that can be configured on a router to 4000 VLANs per interface.

Individual VLANs or a range of VLANs can be configured on an interface. You can configure a VLAN range on a main interface and at the same time configure VLANs outside the range on subinterfaces of the same interface.

PPPoE over VLAN Support on ATM PVCs

The PPPoE over VLAN Enhancements: Configuration Limit Removal and ATM Support feature enables ATM PVCs to process PPPoE over VLAN packets that use bridged RFC 1483 encapsulation. This capability allows PPPoE traffic from different IEEE 802.1Q VLANs to be multiplexed over the same ATM PVC.

The figure below shows a sample network topology that implements PPPoE over VLAN on ATM PVCs. In this topology, a service provider is using an Ethernet switch to provide Ethernet service to home users and a single PVC to provide the switch with WAN access. The home users use PPPoE to access services on the network access server (NAS). Each port on the switch is assigned a separate VLAN, and the VLANs are trunked over a Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet interface that is connected to a digital subscriber line (DSL) modem acting as a bridge.

The IEEE 802.1Q VLAN-encapsulated traffic coming in from the Ethernet switch trunk is encapsulated in RFC 1483 bridged encapsulation by the DSL modem and sent across the ATM WAN to the NAS. The NAS, which is configured to support PPPoE over VLANs over ATM PVCs, will extract the PPPoE packet from the PPPoE over IEEE 802.1Q VLAN over RFC 1483 bridged encapsulation and provide PPPoE services to the user.

In the downlink, the NAS sends packets in PPPoE over IEEE 802.1Q VLAN over RFC 1483 bridged encapsulation. The DSL modem strips off the RFC 1483 encapsulation and forwards the IEEE 802.1Q VLAN packets across the trunk to the switch. The switch then sends the Ethernet packets to the port associated with the IEEE 802.1 VLAN ID.

Benefits of PPPoE over VLAN Enhancements Configuration Limit Removal and ATM Support

The PPPoE over VLAN Enhancements: Configuration Limit Removal and ATM Support feature has the following benefits:

  • Increases the number of VLANs that can be configured on a router to 4000 VLANs per interface by removing the requirement for each PPPoE VLAN to be configured on a subinterface.
  • Provides support for PPPoE over VLANs over ATM interfaces using RFC 1483 bridged encapsulation
