Thank you both for your replies. For the sake of clarity what do you mean
by "The only limitation that I see at a quick glance on the manual is when
doing Provider (Backbone) Bridging you cannot specify different tag-types
for BVLAN, CVLAN & SVLAN on MLX"?
C-VLAN -> Customer VLAN's 802.1q (aka regular VLAN tagged/untagged)
S-VLAN -> Provider VLAN's 802.1ad (aka VLAN to carry a regular VLAN as
B-VLAN -> Backbone VLAN's 802.1ah (aka carry a Q-in-Q in yet another VLAN?)
