Licensing Requirements and Limitations for VPLS

Licensing Requirements and Limitations for VPLS

Involved Network Elements


License Requirements

For VPLS-capable devices, their licensing requirements for the VPLS function are as follows:

  • AR1200&AR2200&AR3200&AR3600 series: By default, VPLS function is disabled on a new device. To use the VPLS function, apply for and purchase the following license from the Huawei local office.
    • AR1200 series: AR1200 value-added service package for data services

    • AR2200 series: AR2200 value-added service package for data services

    • AR3200 series: AR3200 value-added service package for data services

    • AR3600 series: AR3600 value-added service package for data services

Feature Limitations

  • The device supports IPv4 VPLS only.

  • The device supports only the unqualified mode in which the device learns MAC addresses.

  • BPDUs including LACP, LLDP, and OAM packets cannot be transparently transmitted on a VPLS network by default. The device can transparently transmit BPDUs only after transparent transmission of BPDUs is enabled. For details, see (Optional) Configuring Transparent Transmission of BPDUs.

    If both transparent transmission of BPDUs and EFM are enabled, the device terminates OAM packets locally.

  • The device can select LSP tunnels to transmit the VPLS service.

The AR100&AR120&AR150&AR160&AR200 series routers do not support VPLS.
