I would like to create an MPLS ring using several M3600X switches. The ring is created using the two 10 Gig interfaces on the ME3600X switches so I get a 10 Gig backbone. This is all done using the mpls ip command on the physical interfaces themselves. Nothing new here.
But on one location between two ME3600 nodes I need to have the MPLS ring traverse the users network. I am going to have lets say VLAN 99 assigned for the connection between the two ME3600 nodes to close this ring. Ofcourse the Vlan supports jumbo frames.
ring .....10 Gb <-> ME3600X <-> 10Gb -------USERNETWORK-----------10 Gb <-> ME3600X <-> 10Gb ---> ring continues....
I also would like the user to be able to connect their VLANs to the VRF's I've created on my ME3600X nodes. So I essentially create a trunk interface on my ME3600 like this:
int vlan 1
ip vrf forwarding CUSTOMERDATA
int vlan 99
Is this supported?
According to the ME3600X 15.3 configuration guide page 978 it is: "Enter interface configuration mode, and specify the Layer 3 interface connected to the MPLS network. Valid interfaces include 10GigabitEthernet1/1/1, GigabitEthernet1/1/2, and VLANs."
