I am looking at my MPLS service-provider CE router's configuration.
On the CE router's wan facing interface (uplink to Service provider's network) there is an ingress policy-map being applied.
However, the policy-map has just class-map definition without any further action.
interface GigabitEthernet0/1 service-policy input policy-in policy-map policy-in class ce_ef_input class ce_af3_input class class-default
What's the purpose of this ingress policy then ? classify and do nothing ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
They are ”marking” the traffic so they can create a policy on the egress PE router.
My apologies I thought it was on the LAN interface for some reason. But If there is no configuration under the class then there is no policy. Sorry for the confusion.
