Licensing Requirements and Limitations for BGP/MPLS IP VPN

Licensing Requirements and Limitations for BGP/MPLS IP VPN

Involved Network Elements

Other network elements are not required.

License Requirements

You can use the BGP/MPLS IP VPN feature only after the MPLS function is enabled. The MPLS function is controlled by a license. By default, MPLS is disabled on a new device. To use the MPLS function, apply for and purchase the license from the equipment supplier. You can use the MCE function independently without the need to enable MPLS, and MCE is not under license control.

Feature Limitations

  • The SA series cards do not support BGP/MPLS IP VPN, and only support the MCE.
  • In V200R005, the X1E series cards do not support BGP/MPLS IP VPN, and only support the MCE.

    In V200R006 and V200R007C00, the X1E series cards support BGP/MPLS IP VPN but not HVPN or inter-AS VPN Option B.

    In V200R008, the X1E series cards support BGP/MPLS IP VPN but not HVPN.

  • In V200R005, the XGE interface connected to ACU2, ET1D2IPS0S00, ET1D2FW00S00, ET1D2FW00S01, or ET1D2FW00S02 board does not support the BGP/MPLS IP VPN, and only support the MCE.

  • In V200R006, the X1E series cards do not support binding between BGP/MPLS IP VPN and TE tunnels.

  • To configure BGP/MPLS IP VPN on EE series cards, configure enhanced load balancing to provide two more load balancing modes for different types of packets. The two modes are load balancing based on the source IP address and destination IP address. For details, see Configuring a Load Balancing Mode in "Link Aggregation Configuration" in the Configuration Guide - Ethernet Switching.
    To configure enhanced load balancing, perform the following operations:
    • Run the load-balance-profile profile-name command in the system view to create a load balancing profile and enter the load balancing profile view.
    • Run the mpls field [ dip | sip ] * command to specify the load balancing mode of MPLS packets in the profile.

    If MPLS L2VPN and L3VPN are configured simultaneously on the P device using EE series cards, run the mpls field dip sip top-label 2nd-label command to configure a load balancing mode based on the label, source IP address, and destination IP address.

  • If the switch provides WLAN functions using X series cards and wireless users connect to the switch through L3VPN (the VLANIF interface corresponding to the wireless service VLAN is bound to a VPN instance), traffic sent to the wireless users can only be forwarded by the X series cards. Other types of interface cards in the switch cannot forward wireless traffic to users.
