Symmetry/Asymmetry Mode

Symmetry/Asymmetry Mode

QinQ termination sub-interfaces can access the L2VPN in symmetry mode or asymmetry mode.

  • In symmetric mode, when sub-interfaces for QinQ VLAN tag termination are used to access an L2VPN, packets received by the edge devices on the two ends of the public network must carry the same VLAN tags.

    In symmetry mode, the VLAN planning at each site must be consistent, and only users in the same VLAN at different sites can communicate with each other. In this mode, user VLANs can be isolated according to inner tags. MAC address learningis based only on outer tags, and inner tags are transparently transmitted to the remote end.

  • In asymmetric mode, when sub-interfaces for QinQ VLAN tag termination are used to access an L2VPN, packets received by the edge devices on the two ends of the public network may carry different VLAN tags.

    In asymmetrical mode, the VLANs planning at each site can be different, and users in VLANs at any sites can communicate with each other. In this mode, user VLANs cannot be isolated, and MAC address learning is based on both inner and outer tags.

Table 7-4 and Table 7-5 describe how a PE processes user packets that arrive at an L2VPN in different ways.
