Cisco IOS-XR EVPN VPWS Service over SR-TE v1

May 2020

In this lab, we configure Layer2 Services (ELINE/VPWS) using BGP EVPN Signaling, and then we steer a path for an ELINE Service using an SR-TE policy. Upon completion of this lab you, you will:

  • Have gained a better understanding of EVPN ELINE/VPWS services over SR-TE
  • Have learned how to configure basic SR-TE policies, understand Segment Routing traffic Engineering Policies, and use the BGP extended color community attribute for steering.


  • Scenario 1.        Configure and Verify BGP for Address Family L2vpn EVPN on PE Routers and Route Reflectors
  • Scenario 2.        Preparing Configurations for ELINE (VLAN) Service on PE1 and PE2
  • Scenario 3.        Configure SR-TE Path Steering between PE1 and PE2 for Service Configured in Scenario 1
  • Scenario 4.        Configure EVPN VPWS Service with Metric Type as Latency
  • Scenario 5.        Configure EVPN VPWS Service with Explicit Path
