For L2VPN discovery, the MPLS Topology Server component of MPLS Manager is able to discover and model the following MPLS Layer 2 VPN entities:
This L2VPN uses Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) signaling to set up and maintain the pseudowires between PE devices in an MPLS network.
This L2VPN uses Multiprotocol Border Gateway Protocol (MBGP) signaling to set up and maintain the pseudowires between PE devices in an MPLS network.
Virtual private wire service, also known as point-to-point L2VPN, is a technology that uses a pseudowire to emulate a point-to-point circuit across an MPLS network.
Virtual private LAN service, also known as point-to-multipoint L2VPN, is a technology that uses a full mesh of pseudowires to emulate a LAN across an MPLS network.
The MPLS Topology Server requires a Level 2 VPN feature license for the discovery of VPWS and VPLS L2VPNs. The VMware Smart Assurance System Administration Guide provides information about licensing.
