Chapter 7 Creating an L2VPN Policy
Defining an L2VPN Policy
• Frame Relay over MPLS (FRoMPLS)
• ATM over MPLS (ATMoMPLS)
To define an L2VPN policy in ISC, perform the following steps.
Step 1 Choose Service Design > Policies.
The Policies window appears.
Step 2 Click Create.
Step 3 Choose L2VPN (P2P) Policy.
When you choose L2VPN (P2P) Policy, the L2VPN (Point to Point) Policy Creation window appears.
Step 4 Choose L2VPN on MPLS Core.
The window in Figure 7-1 appears.

Step 5 Enter a Policy Name for the L2VPN policy.
Step 6 Choose the Policy Owner for the L2VPN policy.
There are three types of L2VPN policy ownership:
• Customer ownership
• Provider ownership
• Global ownership—Any service operator can make use of this L2VPN policy.
This ownership has relevance when the ISC Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) comes into play. For
example, an L2VPN policy that is customer-owned can only be seen by operators who are allowed to
work on this customer-owned policy.
Similarly, operators who are allowed to work on a provider’s network can view, use, and deploy a
particular provider-owned policy.
Step 7 Click Select to choose the owner of the L2VPN.
(If you choose Global ownership, the Select function is not available.) The Select Customer window or
the Select Provider window appears and you can choose an owner of the policy and click Select.
