Step 2 Choose an Interface Type from the drop-down list.
You can choose a particular interface on a CE, N-PE, U-PE, or PE-AGG interface based on the service
provider’s POP design. The interfaces are:
• ANY (Any interface can be chosen.)
• Port-Channel (A bundle of ports that share the same characteristics—this gives the service provider
the ability to aggregate bandwidth and protection.)
The value defined here functions as a filter to restrict the interface types an operator can see during VPLS
service request creation. If defined as ANY, the operator can see all interface types.
Step 3 Enter an Interface Format as the slot number/port number for the CE interface (for example, 1/0
indicates that the interface is located at slot 1, port 0).
This is especially useful to specify here if you know that the link will always go through a particular
interface’s slot/port location on all or most of the network devices in the service.
