Detailed Information

New Software Features

Layer 2 Tunnel Protocol Version 3

  • Supported Cisco 1700 Series platforms: Cisco 1710, 1720, 1721, 1751, 1751-V, 1760; supported in all IP PLUS images in 12.2(15)ZN (all s images)
  • Supported Cisco 7000 platforms: Cisco 7401; supported in all IP images in 12.2(15)ZN (all is images)

The Layer 2 Tunnel Protocol Version 3 feature expands on Cisco support of the Layer 2 Tunnel Protocol Version 3 (L2TPv3). Previous Cisco IOS releases contained only limited support of L2TPv3. This special release 12.2(15)ZN introduces L2TPv3 control plane support and new commands for configuring both static and dynamic L2TPv3 sessions.

L2TPv3 is an Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) l2tpext working group draft that provides several enhancements to L2TP for the capability to tunnel any Layer 2 payload over L2TP. Specifically, L2TPv3 defines the L2TP protocol for tunneling Layer 2 payloads over an IP core network using Layer 2 VPNs.

L2TP has to two fundamental parts:

  • A control plane responsible for setting up the connection
  • A data plane responsible for tunneling Layer 2 frames

L2TPv3 signaling is responsible for negotiating control plane parameters, session IDs and cookies; for performing authentication; and for exchanging configuration parameters. L2TPv3 is also used to reliably deliver hello messages and circuit status messages. These messages are critical to support circuit interworking, such as the local management interface (LMI), and to monitor the remote circuit status.
