[c-nsp] MPLS-TE on ME3600

MPLS TE/FRR over Etherchannel is supported since Nov 2013, 15.4(1)S.  LDP over MPLS TE on L2VPN is also supported. We need to fix the documentation.

Wade and Ramji,
Can you please clarify the support for MPLS TE over SVI and Interarea TE support? We need to fix the CCO documentation for MPLS TE. It seems to be creating confusion for customers.

Best Regards,

Hi all,
I'm a bit confused about the documentation for the ME3600 with regard to its MPLS-TE support.  Specifically, the 'MPLS TE' section (http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/metro/me3600x_3800x/software/release/15.3_3_S/configuration/guide/swmpls.html#wp1183331) states:

The switch does not support these MPLS TE features:
*Interarea TE support for OSPF and IS-IS
*TE path protection
"The switch supports MPLS TE fast reroute over only routed ports and not over SVIs or EtherChannels."

Hi All,

To revive this old thread, I'm building out some MPLS-TE tunnels on
15.3.3S code;

Does anyone know if ME3x00's support MPLS-TE FRR over SVIs and
EtherChannels yet; Is this in 15.4 or 15.3.3S3? If so I might be able
to push for an upgrade.

Also I saw this line on that page the ME3600s do have "Support for LDP
over TE tunnels for Layer 3 VPN traffic by entering the mpls ip
interface configuration command on the tunnel interface. The switch
does not support LDP over TE tunnels for Layer 2 VPN traffic" - What
happens with L2VPNs in this case? Do the PEs signal seperate PE-to-PE
LDP LSPs along side the TE LSPs?
