This document provides a sample configuration for LAN emulation using the ATM router module (ARM).
ARM provides the Catalyst 8540 Multiservice Switch Router (MSR) and 8510 MSR with high-speed internetworking between the Layer 2 and Layer 3 network topologies. When ARM is installed, you no longer need to choose Layer 3 or ATM technology, as is frequently the case with enterprise and metropolitan area applications. Instead, you can have both Layer 3 and ATM technologies in the same multiservice ATM switch router chassis.
A Catalyst 8510 or 8540 MSR equipped with ARM functionality provides bridging and routing from Ethernet to ATM and from ATM to ATM.
ARM offers interoperability between the Layer 3 switching interface modules used in the Catalyst 8510 or 8540 CSR (Campus Switch Router) and the ATM port adapters and interface modules used in the Catalyst 8510 or 8540 MSR chassis. You can therefore combine Layer 3 and ATM port adapters and interface modules in a Catalyst 8510 or 8540 MSR chassis equipped with ARM. Refer to Major Differences Between Cisco Catalyst 8540 CSR and Cisco Catalyst 8540 MSR to learn more about the differences between Catalyst 8500 MSR and Catalyst 8500 CSR.
You can install up to two ARMs in the slots numbered from 0 to 3 and from 9 to 12 in the Catalyst 8510 or 8540 MSR chassis.
There are no specific requirements for this document.
LAN emulation using ARM was introduced on the Catalyst 8510 MSR in Cisco IOS® Software Release12.0(10)W5(18b) and on the Catalyst 8540 MSR in Cisco IOS Software Release12.0(4a)W5(11a).
The information in this document was created from the devices in a specific lab environment. All of the devices used in this document started with a cleared (default) configuration. If your network is live, make sure that you understand the potential impact of any command.
ARM is based on Cisco express forwarding (CEF) and supports these features:
Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Routing Information Protocol (RIP), RIP2, Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP), and Enhanced IGRP.
Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) Destination Unreachable and Redirect messages.
Load balancing up to two equal paths.
Integrated routing and bridging (IRB).
For more information on document conventions, refer to Cisco Technical Tips Conventions.
In this section, you are presented with the information to configure the features described in this document.
This document uses this network setup. There is an ARM card in slot 9.
This document uses these configurations:

This section provides information that you can use to confirm that your configuration is working properly.
Issue these commands to test whether your network is operating properly:
show ip route
show ip cef
show lane le-arp interface atm card/subcard/port[.subinterface-number]
The next sample output is a result of entering these commands on the devices shown in the network diagram. This output shows that the network is operating properly. The ping goes from the ATM9/0/0.3 interface of the Catalyst 8540 MSR to the Ethernet0/3 interface of the Cisco 7000 Router.
C8540-MSR# ping 220.127.116.11 Type escape sequence to abort. Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 18.104.22.168, timeout is 2 seconds: !!!!! Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/2/4 ms
You can also test connectivity between the Catalyst 8540 MSR and the Cisco 7200 Router by pinging the Ethernet6/0 interface of the Cisco 7206 from the Catalyst 8540. This sample output shows that the ping is successful.
C8540-MSR# ping 22.214.171.124 Type escape sequence to abort. Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 126.96.36.199, timeout is 2 seconds: !!!!! Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/2/4 ms
Another way to test connectivity is by issuing the show ip route command. The Catalyst 8540 MSR has a route to the network behind the Cisco 7200 Router by the address 188.8.131.52—learned by IGRP—and has a route to the network behind the Cisco 7000 Router by the address 184.108.40.206—learned via IGRP as well.

To see the LANE ARP table for the subinterfaces on the Catalyst 8540, issue the show lane le-arp command.
