Creating an L2VPN Service Request
Figure 8-1 L2VPN Service Request Editor
Perform the following steps.
Step 1 Choose a Topology from the drop-down list. If you choose Full Mesh, each CE will have direct
connections to every other CE.
If you choose Hub and Spoke, then only the Hub CE has connection to each Spoke CE and the Spoke
CEs do not have direct connection to each other.
Note The full mesh and the hub and spoke topologies make a difference only when you choose more
than two endpoints. For example, with four endpoints, ISC automatically creates six links with
full mesh topology. With hub and spoke topology, however, ISC creates only three links.
Step 2 Click Add Link.
You specify the CE endpoints using the Attachment Tunnel Editor. You can create one or more CEs from
a window like the one in
Figure 8-2 Select CE
Note All the services that deploy point-to-point connections (ERS/EVPL, EWS/EPL, ATMoMPLS,
and FRoMPLS) must have at least two CEs specified.
