i'm struggeling with some Layer2 Service within one of my customer's MPLS networks.
My aim is to provide a L2VPN Service between two ISR4000 Boxes that act as
CPE in my
MPLS platform. This L2 Service should act as a failover for a primary Radio link.
Transport in this Layer2 Service is working fine, but it is not transporting any
As the ISR4000 are only Bridging Frames between two Layer2 ServiceInstances (a bridge domain between LAN and WAN), there is no "l2protocol tunnel" option available.
Performing a simple "
l2protocol forwarding" Operation isn't possible because the
LocalLoop carrier does not transport
I stumbled upon the Feature "
l2protocol peer" command that i haven't seen before yet, but couldn't figure out what this exactly will do?
Cisco says: "Configures transparent Layer 2 protocol peering on the interface for a specified layer 2 protocol." but what does "peering" in this case exactly mean?
Are the Packets encapsulated in any form for transport, is this some sort o "rewriting" these packets or what will happen here on the protocol level? It would be nice if anybody can clarify this.
