Any Transport over MPLS

This module describes how to configure Any Transport over MPLS (AToM) transports data link layer (Layer 2) packets over a Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) backbone. AToM enables service providers to connect customer sites with existing Layer 2 networks by using a single, integrated, packet-based network infrastructure--a Cisco MPLS network. Instead of using separate networks with network management environments, service providers can deliver Layer 2 connections over an MPLS backbone. AToM provides a common framework to encapsulate and transport supported Layer 2 traffic types over an MPLS network core.

AToM supports the following like-to-like transport types:

  • ATM Adaptation Layer Type-5 (AAL5) over MPLS
  • ATM Cell Relay over MPLS
  • Ethernet over MPLS (VLAN and port modes)
  • Frame Relay over MPLS
  • PPP over MPLS
  • High-Level Data Link Control (HDLC) over MPLS

Prerequisites for Any Transport over MPLS

  • IP routing must be configured in the core so that the provider edge (PE) routers can reach each other via IP.
  • MPLS must be configured in the core so that a label-switched path (LSP) exists between the PE routers.
  • Cisco Express Forwarding must be enabled before you configure any Layer 2 circuits.
  • A loopback interface must be configured for originating and terminating Layer 2 traffic. Ensure that the PE routers can access the other router’s loopback interface. Note that the loopback interface is not needed in all cases. For example, tunnel selection does not need a loopback interface when AToM is directly mapped to a traffic engineering (TE) tunnel.
  • Before converting an interface with L2TPv3 xconnect to AToM xconnect, remove the L2TPv3 configuration from the interface and then configure AToM.
  • Before configuring Ethernet over MLS in VLAN mode, you must configure Ethernet over MPLS on the subinterfaces.

Restrictions for Any Transport over MPLS

General Restrictions

The following general restrictions pertain to all transport types under AToM:

  • Address format: Configure the Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) router ID on all PE routers to be a loopback address with a /32 mask. Otherwise, some configurations might not function properly.
  • Layer 2 virtual private networks (L2VPN) features (AToM and Layer 2 Tunnel Protocol Version 3 (L2TPv3)) are not supported on an ATM interface.
  • Distributed Cisco Express Forwarding is the only forwarding model supported on the Cisco 12000 series routers and is enabled by default. Disabling distributed Cisco Express Forwarding on the Cisco 12000 series routers disables forwarding.
  • Distributed Cisco Express Forwarding mode is supported on the Cisco 7500 series routers for Frame Relay, HDLC, and PPP. In distributed Cisco Express Forwarding mode, the switching process occurs on the Versatile Interface Processors (VIPs) that support switching. When distributed Cisco Express Forwarding is enabled, VIP port adapters maintain identical copies of the Forwarding Information Base (FIB) and adjacency tables. The port adapters perform the express forwarding between port adapters, relieving the Route Switch Processor (RSP) from performing the switching. Distributed Cisco Express Forwarding uses an interprocess communications (IPC) mechanism to ensure synchronization of FIBs and adjacency tables between the RSP and port adapters.
  • To convert an interface with L2TPv3 xconnect to AToM xconnect, remove the L2TPv3 configuration from the interface and then configure AToM. Some features may not work if AToM is configured when L2TPv3 configuration is not removed properly.

ATM Cell Relay over MPLS Restrictions

The following restrictions pertain to ATM Cell Relay over MPLS:

  • For ATM Cell Relay over MPLS,if you have TE tunnels running between the PE routers, you must enable LDP on the tunnel interfaces.
  • Configuring ATM Relay over MPLS with the Cisco 12000 Series Router engine 2 8-port OC-3 STM-1 ATM line card: In Cisco IOS Release 12.0(25)S, there were special instructions for configuring ATM cell relay on the Cisco 12000 series router with an engine 2 8-port OC-3 STM-1 ATM line card. The special configuration instructions do not apply to releases later than Cisco IOS Release 12.0(25)S and you do not need to use the atm mode cell-relay command.

In Cisco IOS Release 12.0(25)S, when you configured the Cisco 12000 series 8-port OC-3 STM-1 ATM line card for ATM Cell Relay over MPLS, two ports were reserved. In releases later than Cisco IOS Release 12.0(25)S, only one port is reserved.

In addition, in Cisco IOS Release 12.0(25)S, if you configured an 8-port OC-3 STM-1 ATM port for ATM Adaptation Layer 5 (AAL5) over MPLS and then configured ATM single cell relay over MPLS on that port, the Virtual Circuits (VCs) and Virtual Paths (VPs) for AAL5 on the port and its corresponding port were removed. Starting in Cisco IOS Release 12.0(26)S, this behavior no longer occurs. ATM AAL5 over MPLS and ATM single cell relay over MPLS are supported on the same port. The Cisco 12000 series 8-port OC-3 STM-1 ATM line cards now support, by default, the ATM single cell relay over MPLS feature in both VP and VC modes and ATM AAL5 over MPLS on the same port.

  • The F4 end-to-end Operation, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) cells are transparently transported along with the ATM cells. When a permanent virtual path (PVP) or Permanent Virtual Circuit (PVC) is down on one PE router, the label associated with that PVP or PVC is withdrawn. Subsequently, the peer PE router detects the label withdrawal and sends an F4 AIS/RDI signal to its corresponding customer edge (CE) router. The PVP or PVC on the peer PE router remains in the up state.

Ethernet over MPLS (EoMPLS) Restrictions

The following restrictions pertain to the Ethernet over MPLS feature:

  • Ethernet over MPLS supports VLAN packets that conform to the IEEE 802.1Q standard. The 802.1Q specification establishes a standard method for inserting VLAN membership information into Ethernet frames. The Inter-Switch Link (ISL) protocol is not supported between the PE and CE routers.
  • The AToM control word is supported. However, if the peer PE does not support a control word, the control word is disabled. This negotiation is done by LDP label binding.
  • Ethernet packets with hardware-level cyclic redundancy check (CRC) errors, framing errors, and runt packets are discarded on input.
  • In Cisco IOS Release 12.2(25)S, the behavior of the mpls mtu command changed. If the interface MTU is less than 1524 bytes, you can set the maximum MPLS MTU to 24 bytes more than the interface MTU. For example, if the interface MTU is set to 1510 bytes, then you can set the maximum MPLS MTU to 1534 bytes (1510 + 24).

Caution


Although you can set the MPLS MTU to a value greater than the interface MTU, you must set the MPLS MTU to a value less than or equal to the interface MTU to prevent data corruption, dropped packets, and high CPU rates.


If the interface MTU is greater than or equal to 1524 bytes, then you can set the maximum MPLS MTU as high as the interface MTU. For example, if the interface MTU is set to 1600 bytes, then you can set the MPLS MTU to a maximum of 1600 bytes. If you set the MPLS MTU to a value higher than the interface MTU, traffic is dropped.

For interfaces that do not allow you to configure the interface MTU value and for interfaces where the interface MTU is 1500 bytes, the MPLS MTU range is 64 to 1524 bytes.

If you upgrade to Cisco IOS Release 12.2(25)S from an earlier release and you have an MPLS MTU setting that does not conform to these guidelines, the command is rejected. See the Maximum Transmission Unit Guidelines for Estimating Packet Size for more information.

Per-Subinterface MTU for Ethernet over MPLS Restrictions

  • The following features do not support MTU values in xconnect subinterface configuration mode:
    • Layer 2 Tunnel Protocol Version 3 (L2TPv3)
    • Virtual Private LAN services (VPLS)
    • L2VPN Pseudowire Switching
  • The MTU value can be configured in xconnect subinterface configuration mode only on the following interfaces and subinterfaces:
    • Fast Ethernet
    • Gigabit Ethernet
  • The router uses an MTU validation process for remote VCs established through LDP, which compares the MTU value configured in xconnect subinterface configuration mode to the MTU value of the remote customer interface. If an MTU value has not been configured in xconnect subinterface configuration mode, then the validation process compares the MTU value of the local customer interface to the MTU value of the remote xconnect, either explicitly configured or inherited from the underlying interface or subinterface.
  • When you configure the MTU value in xconnect subinterface configuration mode, the specified MTU value is not enforced by the dataplane. The dataplane enforces the MTU values of the interface (port mode) or subinterface (VLAN mode).
  • Ensure that the interface MTU is larger than the MTU value configured in xconnect subinterface configuration mode. If the MTU value of the customer-facing subinterface is larger than the MTU value of the core-facing interface, traffic may not be able to travel across the pseudowire.

Frame Relay over MPLS Restrictions

The following restrictions pertain to the Frame Relay over MPLS feature:

  • Frame Relay traffic shaping is not supported with AToM switched VCs.
  • If you configure Frame Relay over MPLS on the Cisco 12000 series router and the core-facing interface is an engine 4 or 4+ line card and the edge-facing interface is an engine 0 or 2 line card, then the BECN, FECN, control word (CW), and DE bit information is stripped from the PVC.

General Restrictions

  • Address format--Configure the Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) router ID on all PE routers to be a loopback address with a /32 mask. Otherwise, some configurations might not function properly.
  • Layer 2 virtual private networks (L2VPN) features (AToM and Layer 2 Tunnel Protocol Version 3 (L2TPv3) are not supported on an ATM interface.
  • Some features may not work if AToM is configured and L2TPv3 configuration is not removed properly.

ATM AAL5 over MPLS Restrictions

  • AAL5 over MPLS is supported only in SDU mode.

ATM Cell Relay over MPLS Restrictions

  • If you have TE tunnels running between the PE routers, you must enable LDP on the tunnel interfaces.
  • The F4 end-to-end OAM cells are transparently transported along with the ATM cells. When a permanent virtual path (PVP) or permanent virtual circuit (PVC) is down on one PE router, the label associated with that PVP or PVC is withdrawn. Subsequently, the peer PE router detects the label withdrawal and sends an F4 AIS/RDI signal to its corresponding CE router. The PVP or PVC on the peer PE router remains in the up state.
  • VC class configuration mode is not supported in port mode.
  • The AToM control word is supported. However, if a peer PE does not support the control word, it is disabled.

For configuring ATM cell relay over MPLS in VP mode, the following restrictions apply:

  • If a VPI is configured for VP cell relay, you cannot configure a PVC using the same VPI.
  • VP trunking (mapping multiple VPs to one emulated VC label) is not supported. Each VP is mapped to one emulated VC.
  • VP mode and VC mode drop idle cells.

Ethernet over MPLS (EoMPLS) Restrictions

  • The subinterfaces between the CE and PE routers that are running Ethernet over MPLS must be in the same subnet.
  • The subinterface on the adjoining CE router must be on the same VLAN as the PE router.
  • Ethernet over MPLS supports VLAN packets that conform to the IEEE 802.1Q standard. The 802.1Q specification establishes a standard method for inserting VLAN membership information into Ethernet frames. The Inter-Switch Link (ISL) protocol is not supported between the PE and CE routers.
  • The AToM control word is supported. However, if the peer PE does not support a control word, the control word is disabled.
  • Ethernet packets with hardware-level cyclic redundancy check (CRC) errors, framing errors, and runt packets are discarded on input.

Per-Subinterface MTU for Ethernet over MPLS Restrictions

  • The following features do not support MTU values in xconnect subinterface configuration mode:
    • Layer 2 Tunnel Protocol Version 3 (L2TPv3)
    • Virtual Private LAN services (VPLS)
    • L2VPN Pseudowire Switching
  • The MTU value can be configured in xconnect subinterface configuration mode only on the following interfaces and subinterfaces:
    • Fast Ethernet
    • Gigabit Ethernet
  • The router uses an MTU validation process for remote VCs established through LDP, which compares the MTU value configured in xconnect subinterface configuration mode to the MTU value of the remote customer interface. If an MTU value has not been configured in xconnect subinterface configuration mode, then the validation process compares the MTU value of the local customer interface to the MTU value of the remote xconnect, either explicitly configured or inherited from the underlying interface or subinterface.
  • When you configure the MTU value in xconnect subinterface configuration mode, the specified MTU value is not enforced by the dataplane. The dataplane enforces the MTU values of the interface (port mode) or subinterface (VLAN mode).
  • Ensure that the interface MTU is larger than the MTU value configured in xconnect subinterface configuration mode. If the MTU value of the customer-facing subinterface is larger than the MTU value of the core-facing interface, traffic may not be able to travel across the pseudowire.

Frame Relay over MPLS Restrictions

Frame Relay traffic shaping is not supported with AToM switched VCs.

HDLC over MPLS Restrictions

  • Asynchronous interfaces are not supported.
  • You must configure HDLC over MPLS on router interfaces only. You cannot configure HDLC over MPLS on subinterfaces.

PPP over MPLS Restrictions

  • Zero hops on one router is not supported. However, you can have back-to-back PE routers.
  • Asynchronous interfaces are not supported. The connections between the CE and PE routers on both ends of the backbone must have similar link layer characteristics. The connections between the CE and PE routers must both be synchronous.
  • Multilink PPP (MLP) is not supported.
  • You must configure PPP on router interfaces only. You cannot configure PPP on subinterfaces.

Tunnel Selection Restrictions

  • The selected path should be an LSP destined to the peer PE router.
  • The selected tunnel must be an MPLS TE tunnel.
  • If you select a tunnel, the tunnel tailend must be on the remote PE router.
  • If you specify an IP address, that address must be the IP address of the loopback interface on the remote PE router. The address must have a /32 mask. There must be an LSP destined to that selected address. The LSP need not be a TE tunnel.

Experimental Bits with AToM Restrictions

  • You must statically set the experimental (EXP) bits in both the VC label and the LSP tunnel label, because the LSP tunnel label might be removed at the penultimate router.
  • For EXP bits and ATM AAL5 over MPLS and for EXP bits and Frame Relay over MPLS, if you do not assign values to the experimental bits, the priority bits in the header’s “tag control information” field are set to zero.
  • For EXP bits and ATM Cell Relay over MPLS in VC mode, if you do not assign values to the experimental bits, the priority bits in the header’s “tag control information” field are set to zero.
  • For EXP bits and HDLC over MPLS and PPP over MPLS, if you do not assign values to the experimental bits, zeros are written into the experimental bit fields.

Remote Ethernet Port Shutdown Restrictions

This feature is not symmetrical if the remote PE router is running an older version image or is on another platform that does not support the EoMPLS remote Ethernet port shutdown feature and the local PE is running an image which supports this feature.

Information About Any Transport over MPLS

To configure AToM, you must understand the following concepts:

How AToM Transports Layer 2 Packets

AToM encapsulates Layer 2 frames at the ingress PE and sends them to a corresponding PE at the other end of a pseudowire, which is a connection between the two PE routers. The egress PE removes the encapsulation and sends out the Layer 2 frame.

The successful transmission of the Layer 2 frames between PE routers is due to the configuration of the PE routers. You set up the connection, called a pseudowire, between the routers. You specify the following information on each PE router:

  • The type of Layer 2 data that will be transported across the pseudowire, such as Ethernet, Frame Relay, or ATM
  • The IP address of the loopback interface of the peer PE router, which enables the PE routers to communicate
  • A unique combination of peer PE IP address and VC ID that identifies the pseudowire

The following example shows the basic configuration steps on a PE router that enable the transport of Layer 2 packets. Each transport type has slightly different steps.

Step 1 defines the interface or subinterface on the PE router:

Router# interface 
interface-type interface-number

Step 2 specifies the encapsulation type for the interface, such as dot1q:

Router(config-if)# encapsulation 
encapsulation-type

Step 3 does the following:

  • Makes a connection to the peer PE router by specifying the LDP router ID of the peer PE router.
  • Specifies a 32-bit unique identifier, called the VC ID, which is shared between the two PE routers.

The combination of the peer router ID and the VC ID must be unique on the router. Two circuits cannot use the same combination of peer router ID and VC ID.

  • Specifies the tunneling method used to encapsulate data in the pseudowire. AToM uses MPLS as the tunneling method.
Router(config-if)# xconnect 
peer-router-id vcid 
encapsulation mpls

As an alternative, you can set up a pseudowire class to specify the tunneling method and other characteristics. For more information, see the Configuring the Pseudowire Class.

How AToM Transports Layer 2 Packets using the commands associated with the L2VPN Protocol-Based CLIs feature

AToM encapsulates Layer 2 frames at the ingress PE and sends them to a corresponding PE at the other end of a pseudowire, which is a connection between the two PE routers. The egress PE removes the encapsulation and sends out the Layer 2 frame.

The successful transmission of the Layer 2 frames between PE routers is due to the configuration of the PE routers. You set up the connection, called a pseudowire, between the routers. You specify the following information on each PE router:

  • The type of Layer 2 data that will be transported across the pseudowire, such as Ethernet, Frame Relay, or ATM
  • The IP address of the loopback interface of the peer PE router, which enables the PE routers to communicate
  • A unique combination of peer PE IP address and VC ID that identifies the pseudowire

The following example shows the basic configuration steps on a PE router that enable the transport of Layer 2 packets. Each transport type has slightly different steps.

Step 1 defines the interface or subinterface on the PE router:

Router# interface 
interface-type interface-number

Step 2 specifies the encapsulation type for the interface, such as dot1q:

Router(config-if)# encapsulation 
encapsulation-type

Step 3 does the following:

  • Makes a connection to the peer PE router by specifying the LDP router ID of the peer PE router.
  • Specifies a 32-bit unique identifier, called the VC ID, which is shared between the two PE routers.

The combination of the peer router ID and the VC ID must be unique on the router. Two circuits cannot use the same combination of peer router ID and VC ID.

  • Specifies the tunneling method used to encapsulate data in the pseudowire. AToM uses MPLS as the tunneling method.
Router(config)# interface pseudowire 100
Router(config-if)# encapsulation mpls
Router(config-if)# neighbor 10.0.0.1 123
Router(config-if)# exit
!
Router(config)# l2vpn xconnect context A
Router(config-xconnect)# member pseudowire 100
Router(config-xconnect)# member gigabitethernet0/0/0.1
Router(config-xconnect)# exit

As an alternative, you can set up a pseudowire class to specify the tunneling method and other characteristics. For more information, see the Configuring the Pseudowire Class.

Benefits of AToM

The following list explains some of the benefits of enabling Layer 2 packets to be sent in the MPLS network:

  • The AToM product set accommodates many types of Layer 2 packets, including Ethernet and Frame Relay, across multiple Cisco router platforms. This enables the service provider to transport all types of traffic over the backbone and accommodate all types of customers.
  • AToM adheres to the standards developed for transporting Layer 2 packets over MPLS. This benefits the service provider that wants to incorporate industry-standard methodologies in the network. Other Layer 2 solutions are proprietary, which can limit the service provider’s ability to expand the network and can force the service provider to use only one vendor’s equipment.
  • Upgrading to AToM is transparent to the customer. Because the service provider network is separate from the customer network, the service provider can upgrade to AToM without disruption of service to the customer. The customers assume that they are using a traditional Layer 2 backbone.

MPLS Traffic Engineering Fast Reroute

AToM can use MPLS traffic engineering (TE) tunnels with fast reroute (FRR) support. AToM VCs can be rerouted around a failed link or node at the same time as MPLS and IP prefixes.

Enabling fast reroute on AToM does not require any special commands; you can use standard fast reroute commands. At the ingress PE, an AToM tunnel is protected by fast reroute when it is routed to an FRR-protected TE tunnel. Both link and node protection are supported for AToM VCs at the ingress PE.

In the following example, the primary link is disabled, which causes the backup tunnel (Tunnel 1) to become the primary path. The output in boldface font shows the status of the tunnel:

Router# execute-on slot 3 debug mpls l2transport fast-reroute
========= Line Card (Slot 3) =========
AToM fast reroute debugging is on

Maximum Transmission Unit Guidelines for Estimating Packet Size

The following calculation helps you determine the size of the packets traveling through the core network. You set the maximum transmission unit (MTU) on the core-facing interfaces of the P and PE routers to accommodate packets of this size. The MTU should be greater than or equal to the total bytes of the items in the following equation:

Core MTU >= (Edge MTU + Transport header + AToM header + (MPLS label stack * MPLS label size))

The following sections describe the variables used in the equation.

Edge MTU

The edge MTU is the MTU for the customer-facing interfaces.

Transport Header

The Transport header depends on the transport type. The table below lists the specific sizes of the headers.

Table 1 Header Size of Packets

Transport Type

Packet Size

AAL5

0-32 bytes

Ethernet VLAN

18 bytes

Ethernet Port

14 bytes

Frame Relay DLCI

2 bytes for Cisco encapsulation, 8 bytes for Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) encapsulation

HDLC

4 bytes

PPP

4 bytes

AToM Header

The AToM header is 4 bytes (control word). The control word is optional for Ethernet, PPP, HDLC, and cell relay transport types. The control word is required for Frame Relay and ATM AAL5 transport types.

MPLS Label Stack

The MPLS label stack size depends on the configuration of the core MPLS network:

  • AToM uses one MPLS label to identify the AToM VCs (VC label). Therefore, the minimum MPLS label stack is one for directly connected AToM PEs, which are PE routers that do not have a P router between them.
  • If LDP is used in the MPLS network, the label stack size is two (the LDP label and the VC label).
  • If a TE tunnel instead of LDP is used between PE routers in the MPLS network, the label stack size is two (the TE label and the VC label).
  • If a TE tunnel and LDP are used in the MPLS network (for example, a TE tunnel between P routers or between P and PE routers, with LDP on the tunnel), the label stack is three (TE label, LDP label, VC label).
  • If you use MPLS fast reroute in the MPLS network, you add a label to the stack. The maximum MPLS label stack in this case is four (FRR label, TE label, LDP label, VC label).
  • If AToM is used by the customer carrier in an MPLS VPN Carrier Supporting Carrier environment, you add a label to the stack. The maximum MPLS label stack in the provider carrier network is five (FRR label, TE label, LDP label, VPN label, VC label).
  • If an AToM tunnel spans different service providers that exchange MPLS labels using IPv4 Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) (RFC 3107), you add a label to the stack. The maximum MPLS label stack is five (FRR label, TE label, Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) label, LDP label, VC label).

Other circumstances can increase the MPLS label stack size. Therefore, analyze the complete data path between the AToM tunnel endpoints and determine the maximum MPLS label stack size for your network. Then multiply the label stack size by the size of the MPLS label.

Estimating Packet Size Example

The estimated packet size in the following example is 1526 bytes, based on the following assumptions:

  • The edge MTU is 1500 bytes.
  • The transport type is Ethernet VLAN, which designates 18 bytes for the transport header.
  • The AToM header is 0, because the control word is not used.
  • The MPLS label stack is 2, because LDP is used. The MPLS label is 4 bytes.
Edge MTU + Transport header + AToM header + (MPLS label stack * MPLS label) = Core MTU
1500     + 18                    + 0      + (2                * 4         ) = 1526

You must configure the P and PE routers in the core to accept packets of 1526 bytes.

Per-Subinterface MTU for Ethernet over MPLS

MTU values can be specified in xconnect subinterface configuration mode. When you use xconnect subinterface configuration mode to set the MTU value, you establish a pseudowire connection for situations where the interfaces have different MTU values that cannot be changed.

If you specify an MTU value in xconnect subinterface configuration mode that is outside the range of supported MTU values (64 bytes to the maximum number of bytes supported by the interface), the command might be rejected. If you specify an MTU value that is out of range in xconnect subinterface configuration mode, the router enters the command in subinterface configuration mode.

For example, if you specify an MTU of 1501 in xconnect subinterface configuration mode, and that value is out of range, the router enters the command in subinterface configuration mode, where it is accepted:

Router# configure terminal
Router(config)# interface gigabitethernet0/0/2.1
Router(config-subif)# xconnect 10.10.10.1 100 encapsulation mpls
Router(config-subif-xconn)# mtu ?
<64 - 1500> MTU size in bytes
Router(config-subif-xconn)# mtu 1501 <<================
Router(config-subif)# mtu ?
<64 - 17940> MTU size in bytes

If the MTU value is not accepted in either xconnect subinterface configuration mode or subinterface configuration mode, then the command is rejected.

Per-Subinterface MTU for Ethernet over MPLS using the commands associated with the L2VPN Protocol-Based CLIs feature

MTU values can be specified in xconnect configuration mode. When you use xconnect configuration mode to set the MTU value, you establish a pseudowire connection for situations where the interfaces have different MTU values that cannot be changed.

If you specify an MTU value in xconnect configuration mode that is outside the range of supported MTU values (64 bytes to the maximum number of bytes supported by the interface), the command might be rejected. If you specify an MTU value that is out of range in xconnect configuration mode, the router enters the command in subinterface configuration mode.

For example, if you specify an MTU of 1501 in xconnect configuration mode, and that value is out of range, the router enters the command in subinterface configuration mode, where it is accepted:

Router# configure terminal
Router(config)# interface gigabitethernet0/0/2.1
Router(config)# interface pseudowire 100
Router(config-if)# encapsulation mpls
Router(config-if)# neighbor 10.10.10.1 100
Router(config-if)# mtu ?
<64 - 1500> MTU size in bytes
Router(config-if)# mtu 1501 <<================
Router(config-if)# mtu ?
<64 - 17940> MTU size in bytes
Router(config-if)# exit
!
Router(config)# l2vpn xconnect context A
Router(config-xconnect)# member pseudowire 100 Router
Router(config-xconnect)# member gigabitethernet0/0/2.1
Router(config-xconnect)# exit

If the MTU value is not accepted in either xconnect configuration mode or subinterface configuration mode, then the command is rejected.

Frame Relay over MPLS and DTE DCE and NNI Connections

You can configure an interface as a DTE device or a DCE switch, or as a switch connected to a switch with network-to-network interface (NNI) connections. Use the following command in interface configuration mode:

frame-relay intf-type [dce | dte | nni]

The keywords are explained in the table below.

Table 2 frame-relay intf-type Command Keywords

Keyword

Description

dce

Enables the router or access server to function as a switch connected to a router.

dte

Enables the router or access server to function as a DTE device. DTE is the default.

nni

Enables the router or access server to function as a switch connected to a switch.

Local Management Interface and Frame Relay over MPLS

Local Management Interface (LMI) is a protocol that communicates status information about PVCs. When a PVC is added, deleted, or changed, the LMI notifies the endpoint of the status change. LMI also provides a polling mechanism that verifies that a link is up.

How LMI Works

To determine the PVC status, LMI checks that a PVC is available from the reporting device to the Frame Relay end-user device. If a PVC is available, LMI reports that the status is “Active,” which means that all interfaces, line protocols, and core segments are operational between the reporting device and the Frame Relay end-user device. If any of those components is not available, the LMI reports a status of “Inactive.”


Note


Only the DCE and NNI interface types can report the LMI status.


The figure below is a sample topology that helps illustrate how LMI works.

Figure 1. Sample Topology

In the figure above, note the following:

  • CE1 and PE1 and PE2 and CE2 are Frame Relay LMI peers.
  • CE1 and CE2 can be Frame Relay switches or end-user devices.
  • Each Frame Relay PVC comprises multiple segments.
  • The DLCI value is local to each segment and is changed as traffic is switched from segment to segment. Two Frame Relay PVC segments exist in the figure; one is between PE1 and CE1 and the other is between PE2 and CE2.

The LMI protocol behavior depends on whether you have DLCI-to-DLCI or port-to-port connections.

DLCI-to-DLCI Connections

If you have DLCI-to-DLCI connections, LMI runs locally on the Frame Relay ports between the PE and CE devices:

  • CE1 sends an active status to PE1 if the PVC for CE1 is available. If CE1 is a switch, LMI checks that the PVC is available from CE1 to the user device attached to CE1.
  • PE1 sends an active status to CE1 if the following conditions are met:
    • A PVC for PE1 is available.
    • PE1 received an MPLS label from the remote PE router.
    • An MPLS tunnel label exists between PE1 and the remote PE.

For DTE or DCE configurations, the following LMI behavior exists: The Frame Relay device accessing the network (DTE) does not report the PVC status. Only the network device (DCE) or NNI can report the status. Therefore, if a problem exists on the DTE side, the DCE is not aware of the problem.

Port-to-Port Connections

If you have port-to-port connections, the PE routers do not participate in the LMI status-checking procedures. LMI operates only between the CE routers. The CE routers must be configured as DCE-DTE or NNI-NNI.

For information about LMI, including configuration instructions, see the “Configuring the LMI” section of the Configuring Frame Relay document.

OAM Cell Emulation for ATM AAL5 over MPLS

If a PE router does not support the transport of Operation, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) cells across a label switched path (LSP), you can use OAM cell emulation to locally terminate or loop back the OAM cells. You configure OAM cell emulation on both PE routers, which emulates a VC by forming two unidirectional LSPs. You use Cisco software commands on both PE routers to enable OAM cell emulation.

After you enable OAM cell emulation on a router, you can configure and manage the ATM VC in the same manner as you would a terminated VC. A VC that has been configured with OAM cell emulation can send loopback cells at configured intervals toward the local CE router. The endpoint can be either of the following:

  • End-to-end loopback, which sends OAM cells to the local CE router.
  • Segment loopback, which responds to OAM cells to a device along the path between the PE and CE routers.

The OAM cells include the following cells:

  • Alarm indication signal (AIS)
  • Remote defect indication (RDI)

These cells identify and report defects along a VC. When a physical link or interface failure occurs, intermediate nodes insert OAM AIS cells into all the downstream devices affected by the failure. When a router receives an AIS cell, it marks the ATM VC down and sends an RDI cell to let the remote end know about the failure.

OAM Cell Emulation for ATM AAL5 over MPLS in VC Class Configuration Mode

You can configure OAM cell emulation as part of a VC class and then apply the VC class to an interface, a subinterface, or a VC. When you configure OAM cell emulation in VC class configuration mode and then apply the VC class to an interface, the settings in the VC class apply to all the VCs on the interface, unless you specify a different OAM cell emulation value at a lower level, such as the subinterface or VC level. For example, you can create a VC class that specifies OAM cell emulation and sets the rate of AIS cells to every 30 seconds. You can apply the VC class to an interface. Then, for one PVC, you can enable OAM cell emulation and set the rate of AIS cells to every 15 seconds. All the PVCs on the interface use the cell rate of 30 seconds, except for the one PVC that was set to 15 seconds.

Any Transport over MPLS (AToM) Remote Ethernet Port Shutdown

This Cisco IOS XE feature allows a service provider edge (PE) router on the local end of an Ethernet over MPLS (EoMPLS) pseudowire to detect a remote link failure and cause the shutdown of the Ethernet port on the local customer edge (CE) router. Because the Ethernet port on the local CE router is shut down, the router does not lose data by continuously sending traffic to the failed remote link. This is beneficial if the link is configured as a static IP route.

The figure below illustrates a condition in an EoMPLS WAN, with a down Layer 2 tunnel link between a CE router (Customer Edge 1) and the PE router (Provider Edge 1). A CE router on the far side of the Layer 2 tunnel (Customer Edge 2), continues to forward traffic to Customer Edge 1 through the L2 tunnel.

Figure 2. Remote Link Outage in EoMPLS WAN

Previous to this feature, the Provider Edge 2 router could not detect a failed remote link. Traffic forwarded from Customer Edge 2 to Customer Edge 1 would be lost until routing or spanning tree protocols detected the down remote link. If the link was configured with static routing, the remote link outage would be even more difficult to detect.

With this feature, the Provider Edge 2 router detects the remote link failure and causes a shutdown of the local Customer Edge 2 Ethernet port. When the remote L2 tunnel link is restored, the local interface is automatically restored as well. The possibility of data loss is thus diminished.

With reference to the figure above, the Remote Ethernet Shutdown sequence is generally described as follows:

  1. The remote link between Customer Edge 1 and Provider Edge 1 fails.
  2. Provider Edge 2 detects the remote link failure and disables the transmit laser on the line card interface connected to Customer Edge 2.
  3. An RX_LOS error alarm is received by Customer Edge 2 causing Customer Edge 2 to bring down the interface.
  4. Provider Edge 2 maintains its interface with Customer Edge 2 in an up state.
  5. When the remote link and EoMPLS connection is restored, the Provider Edge 2 router enables the transmit laser.
  6. The Customer Edge 2 router brings up its downed interface.

This feature is enabled by default for Ethernet over MPLS (EoMPLS). You can also enable this feature by using the remote link failure notification command in xconnect configuration mode as shown in the following example:

pseudowire-class eompls
 encapsulation mpls
!
interface GigabitEthernet1/0/0
 xconnect 10.13.13.13 1 pw-class eompls
  remote link failure notification
!

This feature can be disabled using the no remote link failure notification command in xconnect configuration mode. Use the show ip interface brief privileged EXEC command to display the status of all remote L2 tunnel links. Use the show interfaceprivileged EXEC command to show the status of the L2 tunnel on a specific interface.


Note


The no remote link failure notificationcommand will not give notification to clients for remote attachment circuit status down.


Any Transport over MPLS (AToM) Remote Ethernet Port Shutdown using the commands associated with the L2VPN Protocol-Based CLIs feature

This Cisco IOS XE feature allows a service provider edge (PE) router on the local end of an Ethernet over MPLS (EoMPLS) pseudowire to detect a remote link failure and cause the shutdown of the Ethernet port on the local customer edge (CE) router. Because the Ethernet port on the local CE router is shut down, the router does not lose data by continuously sending traffic to the failed remote link. This is beneficial if the link is configured as a static IP route.

The figure below illustrates a condition in an EoMPLS WAN, with a down Layer 2 tunnel link between a CE router (Customer Edge 1) and the PE router (Provider Edge 1). A CE router on the far side of the Layer 2 tunnel (Customer Edge 2), continues to forward traffic to Customer Edge 1 through the L2 tunnel.

Figure 3. Remote Link Outage in EoMPLS WAN

Previous to this feature, the Provider Edge 2 router could not detect a failed remote link. Traffic forwarded from Customer Edge 2 to Customer Edge 1 would be lost until routing or spanning tree protocols detected the down remote link. If the link was configured with static routing, the remote link outage would be even more difficult to detect.

With this feature, the Provider Edge 2 router detects the remote link failure and causes a shutdown of the local Customer Edge 2 Ethernet port. When the remote L2 tunnel link is restored, the local interface is automatically restored as well. The possibility of data loss is thus diminished.

With reference to the figure above, the Remote Ethernet Shutdown sequence is generally described as follows:

  2. Provider Edge 2 detects the remote link failure and disables the transmit laser on the line card interface connected to Customer Edge 2.
  3. An RX_LOS error alarm is received by Customer Edge 2 causing Customer Edge 2 to bring down the interface.
  4. Provider Edge 2 maintains its interface with Customer Edge 2 in an up state.
  5. When the remote link and EoMPLS connection is restored, the Provider Edge 2 router enables the transmit laser.
  6. The Customer Edge 2 router brings up its downed interface.

This feature is enabled by default for Ethernet over MPLS (EoMPLS). You can also enable this feature by using the remote link failure notification command in xconnect configuration mode as shown in the following example:

template type pseudowire eompls
 encapsulation mpls
!
interface Pseudowire 100
 source template type pseudowire test
 neighbor 10.13.13.13 1
interface GigabitEthernet1/0/0
	service instance 300 ethernet
 remote link failure notification
l2vpn xconnect context con1
 member GigabitEthernet1/0/0 service-instance 300
 member Pseudowire 100
!

This feature can be disabled using the no remote link failure notification command in xconnect configuration mode. Use the show ip interface brief privileged EXEC command to display the status of all remote L2 tunnel links. Use the show interfaceprivileged EXEC command to show the status of the L2 tunnel on a specific interface.


Note


The no remote link failure notificationcommand will not give notification to clients for remote attachment circuit status down.


AToM Load Balancing with Single PW

Prior to Cisco IOS XE Release 3.4S, the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Router did not perform load balancing for packets within the same pseudowire (PW) at the Provide Edge (PE) even if Equal Cost Multiple Paths (ECMPs) were available between PEs in an MPLS cloud. Only one of the routing options from the table would be used, and the other paths would be left unused. The AToM Load Balancing with Single PW feature enables load balancing for packets within the same pseudowire by further classifying packets within the same pseudowire into different flows based on certain fields in the packet received on an attachment circuit. For example, for Ethernet this load balancing is based on the source MAC address in the incoming packets.

In Cisco IOS XE Release 3.4S, this feature is available only for the Ethernet family of attachment circuits (ACs); so the flow-identification logic is based on source MAC address. All packets with the same source MAC address follow one path and are identified as flows.

How to Configure Any Transport over MPLS

This section explains how to perform a basic AToM configuration and includes the following procedures:

Configuring the Pseudowire Class

                                            Step 2 configure terminal


                                            Example:
                                            Router# configure terminal
                                             

                                            Enters global configuration mode.

                                             
                                            Step 3 interface gigabitethernet slot / subslot / port [. subinterface]


                                            Example:
                                            Router(config)# interface gigabitethernet4/0/0.1
                                             

                                            Specifies the Gigabit Ethernet subinterface and enters subinterface configuration mode.

                                             
                                            Step 4 encapsulation dot1q vlan-id


                                            Example:
                                            Router(config-subif)# encapsulation dot1q 100
                                             

                                            Enables the subinterface to accept 802.1Q VLAN packets.

                                             
                                            Step 5 xconnect peer-router-id vcid encapsulation mpls


                                            Example:
                                            Router(config-subif)# xconnect 10.0.0.1 123 encapsulation mpls
                                             

                                            Binds the attachment circuit to a pseudowire VC and enters xconnect configuration mode.

                                             
                                            Step 6 remote circuit id remote-vlan-id


                                            Example:
                                            Router(config-subif-xconn)# remote circuit id 101
                                             

                                            (Optional) Enables you to use VLAN interfaces with different VLAN IDs at both ends of the tunnel.

                                             
                                            Step 7 end


                                            Example:
                                            Router(config-subif-xconn)# end
                                             

                                            Exits to privileged EXEC mode.

                                             
                                            Step 8 show controllers eompls forwarding-table


                                            Example:
                                            Router# show controllers eompls forwarding-table
                                             

                                            Displays information about VLAN ID rewrite.

                                             
                                            Examples

                                                Example:
                                                Router(config-if)# interface gigabitethernet4/0/0.1
                                                 

                                                Specifies the Gigabit Ethernet subinterface and enters subinterface configuration mode.

                                                Make sure the subinterface on the adjoining CE router is on the same VLAN as this PE router.

                                                 
                                                Step 6 encapsulation dot1q vlan-id


                                                Example:
                                                Router(config-subif)# encapsulation dot1q 100
                                                 

                                                Enables the subinterface to accept 802.1Q VLAN packets.

                                                The subinterfaces between the CE and PE routers that are running Ethernet over MPLS must be in the same subnet. All other subinterfaces and backbone routers need not be.

                                                 
                                                Step 7 xconnect peer-router-id vcid encapsulation mpls

                                                Router(config-subif)# xconnect 10.0.0.1 123 encapsulation mpls
                                                 

                                                Binds the attachment circuit to a pseudowire VC.

                                                The syntax for this command is the same as for all other Layer 2 transports. Enters xconnect subinterface configuration mode.

                                                Router(config-if-xconn)# mtu 1400
                                                 

                                                Specifies the MTU for the VC.

                                                 
                                                Step 9 end


                                                Example:
                                                Router(config-if-xconn)# end
                                                 

                                                Exits to privileged EXEC mode.

                                                    Step 5 encapsulation frame-relay [cisco | ietf]


                                                    Example:
                                                    Router(config-if)# encapsulation frame-relay ietf 
                                                     

                                                    Specifies Frame Relay encapsulation for the interface. You can specify different types of encapsulations. You can set one interface to Cisco encapsulation and the other interface to IETF encapsulation.

                                                     
                                                    Step 6 frame-relay intf-type dce


                                                    Example:
                                                    Router(config-if)# frame-relay intf-type dce
                                                     

                                                    Specifies that the interface is a DCE switch. You can also specify the interface to support Network-to-Network Interface (NNI) and DTE connections.

                                                    Exits from interface configuration mode.

                                                     
                                                    Step 8 connect connection-name interface dlci l2transport


                                                    Example:
                                                    Router(config)# connect fr1 serial5/0 1000 l2transport
                                                     

                                                    Defines connections between Frame Relay PVCs and enters connect configuration mode. Using the l2transportkeyword specifies that the PVC will not be a locally switched PVC, but will be tunneled over the backbone network.

                                                    The connection-nameargument is a text string that you provide.

                                                    The interfaceargument is the interface on which a PVC connection will be defined.

                                                    The dlciargument is the DLCI number of the PVC that will be connected.

                                                     
                                                    Step 9 xconnect peer-router-id vcid encapsulation mpls


                                                    Example:
                                                    Router(config-fr-pw-switching)# xconnect 10.0.0.1 123 encapsulation mpls
                                                     

                                                    Creates the VC to transport the Layer 2 packets. In a DLCI-to DLCI connection type, Frame Relay over MPLS uses the xconnectcommand in connect configuration mode.

If PE1 was not set with an MTU value of 1500 bytes, in xconnect subinterface configuration mode, the subinterface would inherit the MTU value of 2000 bytes set on the interface. This would cause a mismatch in MTU values between the VC endpoints, and the VC would not come up.

                                                                                As shown in the figure, PE1 is configured in xconnect subinterface configuration mode with an MTU value of 1500 bytes in order to establish an end-to-end VC with PE2, which also has an MTU value of 1500 bytes. If PE1 was not set with an MTU value of 1500 bytes, in xconnect subinterface configuration mode, the subinterface would inherit the MTU value of 2000 bytes set on the interface. This would cause a mismatch in MTU values between the VC endpoints, and the VC would not come up.

                                                                                The following example shows an L2VPN Interworking example. The PE1 router has a serial interface configured with an MTU value of 1492 bytes. The PE2 router uses xconnect configuration mode to set a matching MTU of 1492 bytes, which allows the two routers to form an interworking VC. If the PE2 router did not set the MTU value in xconnect configuration mode, the interface would be set to 1500 bytes by default and the VC would not come up.

                                                                                The following example shows an L2VPN Interworking example. The PE1 router has a serial interface configured with an MTU value of 1492 bytes. The PE2 router uses xconnect configuration mode to set a matching MTU of 1492 bytes, which allows the two routers to form an interworking VC. If the PE2 router did not set the MTU value in xconnect configuration mode, the interface would be set to 1500 bytes by default and the VC would not come up.

                                                                                PE1 Configuration

                                                                                This feature provides capability to support sequencing of AToM) data plane packets.

                                                                                Any Transport over MPLS (AToM): Ethernet over MPLS (EoMPLS)

                                                                                Cisco IOS XE Release 2.4

                                                                                Cisco IOS XE Release 3.5S

                                                                                This feature allows you to transport Layer 2 Ethernet VLAN packets from various sources over an MPLS backbone. Ethernet over MPLS extends the usability of the MPLS backbone by enabling it to offer Layer 2 services in addition to already existing Layer 3 services. You can enable the MPLS backbone network to accept Layer 2 VLAN packets by configuring the PE routers at the both ends of the MPLS backbone.

                                                                                In Cisco IOS XE Release 2.4, this feature was introduced on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers.

                                                                                In Cisco IOS XE Release 3.5S, support was added for the Cisco ASR 903 Router.

                                                                                Any Transport over MPLS (AToM): Ethernet over MPLS: Port Mode (EoMPLS)

                                                                                Cisco IOS XE Release 2.4

                                                                                Ethernet over MPLS (EoMPLS) is the transport of Ethernet frames across an MPLS core. It transports all frames received on a particular Ethernet or virtual LAN (VLAN) segment, regardless of the destination Media Access Control (MAC) information. It does not perform MAC learning or MAC look up for forwarding packets from the Ethernet interface. Port mode allows a frame coming into an interface to be packed into an MPLS packet and transported over the MPLS backbone to an egress interface.

                                                                                In Cisco IOS XE Release 2.4, this feature was introduced on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers.

                                                                                AToM can use MPLS traffic engineering (TE) tunnels with fast reroute (FRR) support. This features enhances FRR functionality for Ethernet over MPLS (EoMPLS).

                                                                                In Cisco IOS XE Release 2.4, this feature was introduced on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers.

                                                                                Any Transport over MPLS (AToM): Frame Relay over MPLS (FRoMPLS)

                                                                                In Cisco IOS XE Release 3.2S, this feature was introduced on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers.

                                                                                This feature introduced no new or modified commands.

                                                                                Any Transport over MPLS (AToM): Remote Ethernet Port Shutdown

                                                                                Cisco IOS XE Release 2.4

                                                                                This feature allows a service provider edge (PE) router on the local end of an Ethernet over MPLS (EoMPLS) pseudowire to detect a remote link failure and cause the shutdown of the Ethernet port on the local customer edge (CE) router. Because the Ethernet port on the local CE router is shut down, the router does not lose data by continuously sending traffic to the failed remote link. This is beneficial if the link is configured as a static IP route.

                                                                                In Cisco IOS XE Release 2.4, this feature was introduced on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers.

                                                                                Cisco IOS XE Release 2.3

                                                                                The AToM Tunnel Selection feature allows you to specify the path that traffic uses. You can specify either an MPLS TE tunnel or destination IP address or domain name server (DNS) name.

                                                                                You also have the option of specifying whether the VCs should use the default path (the path LDP uses for signaling) if the preferred path is unreachable. This option is enabled by default; you must explicitly disable it.

                                                                                In Cisco IOS XE Release 2.3, this feature was introduced on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers.
