Network Deployment Considerations

Before defining a L2TPV3 configuration, refer to the following deployment guidelines to ensure the configuration is optimally effective:

  • In respect to L2TP V3, data transfers on the pseudowire can start as soon as session establishment corresponding to the pseudowire is complete.

  • In respect to L2TP V3, the control connection keep-alive mechanism of L2TP V3 can serve as a monitoring mechanism for the pseudowires associated with a control connection.
