Does the E1 interface of an AR router support the layer 2 forwarding

43

The E1 interface of an AR router does not support the layer 2 forwarding because the protocol used by the E1 interface is different from the protocol used by the Ethernet over layer 2.

Does an AR router support an interface being switched over between Layer 2 and Layer 3
The following AR routers support an interface being switched over between Layer 2 and Layer 3. By default, Ethernet interfaces are Layer 2 interfaces. Run the undo portswitch command to switch the interfaces from Layer 2 mode to Layer 3 mode, and run the portswitch command to switch the interfaces back to Layer 2 mode.

Does a bridge group on an AR router forward packets in Layer 2 or Layer 3

A bridge group on an AR router forwards packets in Layer 2.
Only interfaces with Layer-3 functions can be added to a bridge. However, a bridge forwards data in Layer 2.

Whether the firewall supports Layer 2 or Layer 3 forwarding
The USG2000&5000&6000 support implementing the Layer 2 forwarding function in transparent mode. When the firewall implements route-based forwarding, the Layer 3 forwarding function is used.

Does the Ethernet LAN interface card of an AR router provide Layer-2 interfaces or Layer-3 interfaces
All interfaces provided by the Ethernet LAN interface card of an AR router are Layer-2 Ethernet interfaces. Ethernet LAN cards of AR routers include the following models: 8FE1GE: a WSIC card that provides 8 FE interfaces and a GE interface 9ES2: a WSIC card that provides 8 FE electrical interfaces and a GE electrical interface 24GE: an XSIC card that provides 24 GE electrical interfaces 4GE-2S: a WSIC card that provides 4 GE optical interfaces 4ES2G-S: a SIC card that provides 4 GE electrical interfaces 4ES2GP-S: a SIC card that provides 4 GE electrical interfaces

The AR router supports which layer 2 link
The AR router bridge supports ethernet link, MP, PPP, FR, ATM, PPPoE, PPPoFR, PPPoEoA, HDLC.
