The protocols can be tunneled, but on a global basis, not on an interface, and this is a feature that should be added.

We are undergoing a migration to software-defined networking. Different vendors have to integrate with each other and we are not seeing this type of capability within Juniper. We are getting left behind in this technology trend by staying with this solution. Juniper is also losing a bit of market share because of this.
