L2TPv3 encaps performance (again)
- From: Joe Abley
- Date: Tue May 04 12:44:33 2004
I had quite a large number of people reply privately to me on this (see
below), but a singular lack of vendors (just one) who had anything to
say on the subject.
So, before I conclude that there is only one vendor in the world that
supports L2TPv3 at anything close to gigabit speeds, I thought I'd ask
again, more explicitly:
If there are any vendors interested in selling L2TPv3 boxes, and they'd
like the list of potential customers who have sent me mail about this
to find out about them, then they should feel free to send me a
sentence or two about what their boxes can do so I can pass the
Suggestions and recommendations from operators would be also wildly
good to hear.

Subject: L2TPv3 encaps performance
Someone asked me the other day if I could recommend some L2TPv3 tunnel
termination devices which might be capable of encaps/de-encaps of
traffic which bursts near to 1Gbit/s (e.g. with GE uplinks to a
core/transport network, and GE interfaces for hand-off towards the
subscriber). Application is providing transparent/pseudowire wide-area
ethernet transport service over a routed-IP but non-LDP-capable core.
This didn't sound like a particularly hard question, but I couldn't
find any performance numbers on L2TPv3 edge boxes anywhere. What boxes
exist that can do this stuff at gig speeds?
Replies off-list would be fine, I can summarise if there's interest.
