For applications that use multipoint subinterfaces, such as PPP over Ethernet and PPP over ATM, the PVC range is on a single
A PVC range is defined by two VPI-VCI pairs. The two virtual path identifiers (VPIs) define a VPI range, and the two virtual
channel identifiers (VCIs) define a VCI range. The number of PVCs in the PVC range equals the number of VPIs in the VPI range
multiplied by the number of VCIs in the VCI range.
Once the PVC range is defined, you can configure the range by using the existing interface-ATM-VC configuration commands that
are also supported in PVC range configuration mode. The shutdown PVC range command can be used to deactivate the range without deleting the configuration.
The ATM PVC Range feature also introduces the pvc-in-range command, which allows you to explicitly configure an individual PVC within the defined range of PVCs on a multipoint subinterface.
The shutdown PVC-in-range command allows you to deactivate an individual PVC within a range.
You cannot explicitly configure the individual point-to-point subinterfaces created by the PVC range on a point-to-point subinterface.
All of the point-to-point subinterfaces in the range share the same configuration as the subinterface on which the PVC range
