Hello,

Just a basic question:

Is there an recommended IOS version for a Cat 3550 acting as a U-PE in a Metro Ethernet implementation?

Thanks!

The Catalyst 3550 will now provide limited support for Policy Based Routing (PBR), while Catalyst 3550 Metro Ethernet users can benefit from Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol enhancements, which allow configuration of drop and shut-down thresholds based on ingress packet rates.

The 3550 has been one of the MetroEthernet U-PEs for quiet sometime in our MetroE solutions. Because of its nature there is a limited selection of IOS options (read: two within each release). At the moment we are in the 12.1.22EA5 release which would be the latest and greatest.

Go with the latest released one at this moment.
