Cisco to Netiron QnQ

Hi,

Has anyone set-up QnQ from a cisco switch eg 3560 to a netiron?

Is it possible?

Using Cisco commands

interface GigabitEthernet0/51
switchport access vlan 33
switchport mode dot1q-tunnel
l2protocol-tunnel cdp
l2protocol-tunnel stp
l2protocol-tunnel vtp

Thanks

Re: Cisco to Netiron QnQ

Hi S.Rigby,

     Yes the netiron will do QinQ.  Check the config guide for the Netiron for a full example.

IEEE 802.1ad network configuration example

Configuring a network for IEEE 802.1ad requires these steps.

1. Configure appropriate port types

2. Define tag values for CVLAN and SVLAN

3. Define ESIs for CVLAN side and bind VLANs and ports

4. Define ESIs for SVLAN side and bind VLANs and ports

Configure port types for interfaces

Before CVLAN or SVLANs can be provisioned for an interface, the port-type for the interface must

be appropriately defined.

The port-type command defines a port type for an Ethernet interface. The port-types specify both

sides of IEEE 802.1ad and IEEE 802.1ah networks. Enter a command such as the following to set

1/10 and 1/11 to the provider-network port type.

NetIron(config)# interface ethernet 1/10

NetIron(config-if-e10000-1/10)# port-type provider-network

NetIron(config-if-e10000-1/10)# exit

Syntax: port-type

Use the backbone-edge parameter to specify the backbone edge port for IEEE 802.1ah PBB.

Use the backbone-network parameter to specify the backbone network port for IEEE 802.1ah PBB.

Use the customer-edge parameter to specify the customer edge port for IEEE 802.1ad PB.

Use the provider-network parameter to specify the provider network port IEEE 802.1ad PB.
