Adding Local Interfaces to a Bridge Group

Adding Local Interfaces to a Bridge Group


A bridge group is a virtual group. It can forward packets only after interfaces have been added to the group.

As shown in Figure 15-14, the following methods can be used to add users to a bridge group:
  • Directly add users to the bridge group. User 3 uses this method.
  • Use a VLAN to add users to the bridge group. Create a VLAN on a bridge and add users to the VLAN. Users then connect to the bridge group through the VLANIF interface. User 1 and User 2 use this method.
  • Use Ethernet sub-interfaces to add users to the bridge group. This method is used when flows on a physical interface need to be differentiated using sub-interfaces. User 4 uses this method.
Figure 15-14  Networking diagram for adding users to bridge groups

Perform the following steps on the user-side interface of the device.


  1. Run:


    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run:

    interface interface-type interface-number

    The user-side interface view is displayed.

  3. Run:

    bridge bridge-id

    An interface is added to a bridge group.

    The number of interfaces that can be added to a bridge group depends on device models:
    • AR510: 10
    • AR500&AR530&AR550&AR2500: 20
    Interfaces of different types can be added to the same bridge group, but Layer 2 interfaces cannot be added to a bridge group.
