Hi Satya and Xander,

I have some questions on ASR9k platform. First some questions on NV satellite:

Is there a list of features not supported on the host? Such as LACP.

Do you have a roadmap for these features?

ASR9000v can't act as transit for traffic, correct?

And for the ASR9k:

Do you support IGMP snooping and PIM snooping under VPLS?

Are there counters available via SNMP for amount of traffic in an EVC?

Is it possible to run VPLS aware Netflow to graph traffic within VFI?

Hello Daniel,

Yes, you are right, ASR9000v cannot act as a transit for traffic

Going forward Satellite will be supporting

With 5.2.x and 5.3.x we will be adding the following features.

Multicast Offload

Bundle over Bundle

Dual head-ARP, ND Sync.

Satellites, use ICCP so there might not be any plans to implement LACP in the future.

Regards,

--Satya Narra

So if you want to dual home a host that is not possible or will the satellites act as one device?

You can dual host in 5.1.1. You will need a sat lic on each 9k that is hosting that Sat.
Check 511 asr9000 release notes for more details.

What I meant was the end host (customer) not the NV host.
