Have you a Huawei NE series router and a Cisco Nexus switch? Do you have to enable communication between a router’s L3 sub-interface and a and the switch trunk? Yes? Ok, so this post is 4 you!

  1. in Huawei ARP broadcast is not enabled in sub-interfaces so a packet entering in the subif is discarded by the system beacause is considered as a blackhole route.
  2. Cisco & Huawei don’t have a good auto negotiation so you should set them manually on both side.

here you are:


interface GigabitEthernet0/5/0
 description to Switch
 undo negotiation auto
 speed 1000
 duplex full
 undo shutdown
 trap-threshold input-rate 1 resume-rate 1
 trap-threshold output-rate 1 resume-rate 1
 undo lldp enable
 undo dcn
interface GigabitEthernet0/5/0.15
 description to Switch * subif vlan 15
 ip address
 statistic enable
 encapsulation dot1q-termination
 dot1q termination vid 15
 arp broadcast enable


interface GigabitEthernet3/1
 description to Router
