Do S series switches support the MCE function

17

For the support for MCE on S series switches of different models:
- S12700: See "VPN - BGP/MPLS IP VPN" in S12700 Product Use Precautions.
- S7700 and S9700: See "VPN - BGP/MPLS IP VPN" in S7700&S9700 Product Use Precautions.
- S9300: See "VPN - BGP/MPLS IP VPN" in S9300&S9300E&S9300X Product Use Precautions.
- S1720, S2700, S3700, S5700, and S6700: See "VPN - BGP/MPLS IP VPN" in S1720&S2700&S3700&S5700&S6700 Product Use Precautions.
- S600: See "VPN - MCE" in S600-E Product Use Precautions.

What is an MCE on S series switches
Introduction to an MCE on an S series switch is as follows: A customer edge (CE) device is an edge device on a customer network. A CE device provides interfaces that are directly connected to the service provider (SP) network. A multi-VPN-instance CE (MCE) device functions as a CE device for multiple VPN instances in BGP/MPLS IP VPN networking. The MCE function helps reduce network device expenses. An MCE device maintains a VRF table for each VPN and binds each VPN instance to an interface. When the MCE device receives a route, it checks the receiving interface to determine the origin of the route and adds the route to the VRF table of the VPN instance bound to the interface. The PE interfaces connected to the MCE device must also be bound to the VPN instances. The bindings between interfaces and VPN instances on the PE device must be the same as those on the MCE device. When the PE device receives a packet, it checks the receiving interface to determine to which VPN the packet belongs, and then transmits the packet in the appropriate tunnel.

Do S series switches support GRE
The following models and versions of S series switches excluding the S1700 support GRE VPN: -Model- -Starting Version - S5710EI V200R003 (V200R006 and later versions do not support the S5710EI.) S5700HI V200R003 (V200R006 and later versions do not support the S5700HI.) S5710HI V200R003 (V200R006 and later versions do not support the S5710HI.) S5720EI V200R007C00 (V200R007C10 and later versions do not support the S5720EI.) S5720HI V200R006 S6300EI V200R005 (V200R006 and later versions do not support the S6300EI.) S6320EI V200R008 S7700 V100R003 S9700 V200 R001 S12704 V200R008 S12708/S12712 V200R005 S9300 V100R002 S9300E V200R002 Modular switches (S7700/S9700/S9300/S12700) have the following limitations: - SA series cards (excluding the ET1D2X12SSA0 card) do not support the GRE function. - In V200R005, X1E series cards and the XGE interface connecting ACU2/ET1D2IPS0S00/ET1D2FW00S00/ET1D2FW00S01/ET1D2FW00S02/LE1D2FW00S01 card do not support the GRE function. - In V200R006 and later versions, if the tunnel interface is configured with the service link function, the tunnel type, source address, and destination address configured on this interface cannot be modified.
