What about handling LAG on 1Gb/sec links?Â That is a major showstopper
if indeed it is missing:
â?¢Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â On MX10003 and MX204 routers, rate selectability at PIC
level and port level does not support 1-Gbps speed.
â?¢Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â On MX10003 and MX204 routers, the interface name prefix
must be xe.
â?¢Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â On MX10003 and MX204 routers, even after configuring 1-Gbps
speed, the protocol continues to advertise the bandwidth as 10-Gigabit
â?¢Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â On MX10003 and MX204 routers, Link Aggregation Group (LAG)
is supported on 10-Gbps speed only. It is not supported on 1-Gbps speed.
