In this section:

These objects specify the IP interfaces that the SBC will utilize for telephony, management, and system debugging traffic.

To View Ip Interface

On SBC main screen, go to Configuration > System ProvisioningCategory: Base Provisioning > Ip Interface Group > Ip Interface. The Ip Interface window is displayed.

Figure : Ip Interface

 

The Ip Interface can be checked for each Address Context or for each Ip Interface Group or for all the Address Contexts and Ip Interface Groups created. Use the drop-down box to select the desired Address Contexts and Ip Interface Groups.

To Edit Ip Interface

To edit any of the Ip Interface in the list, click the radio button next to the specific Ip Interface name.

Figure : Ip Interface Highlight

 

The Edit Selected Ip Interface window is displayed below.

Make the required changes and click Save at the right hand bottom of the panel to save the changes made.

To Create Ip Interface

To create a new Ip Interface, click New Ip Interface tab on the Ip Interface List panel.

The following fields are displayed:

Table : Ip Interface Parameters

 

Parameter

Description

Name

The IP interface name.

Mode

The operational state of the IP Interface:

  • Out of Service—Set this state before changing admin-state to disabled.
  • In Service-— (default) This state is set by default when admin-state is enabled.

When setting Mode to 'Out of Service', be sure to also set State to 'disabled'.

StateThe administrative state of the IP Interface:
  • disabled (default)—in this state the IP Interface is inactive, it does not respond to a ping.
  • enabled —in this state the IP Interface is active and it responds to a ping if the  Ethernet cable is plugged in.

Ce Name

The name of the compute element that hosts the port used by this IP interface.

Ce Name is currently not used by the SBC.

Port Name

The physical port name (example: pkt0, ..., pkt3) used by this IP interface.

IP Address

The IP address of the Interface.

IPv4—This is V4 IP address in dotted decimal form (for example 128.127.50.224).
IPv6—This is V6 IP address in hexadecimal/colon form (for example, 1280:1276:3350:2224:2222:3333:8888:1245 or fd00:21:445:128::7880).

Prefix

The IP subnet prefix of this Interface.

Alt IP Address

Specifies alternative (secondary) IP address for the configured packet IP interface. The alternative IP address is optional.

The following IP address types are supported:

  • IPv4—This is V4 IP address in dotted decimal form (for example 128.127.50.224).
  • IPv6—This is V6 IP address in hexadecimal/colon form (for example, 1280:1276:3350:2224:2222:3333:8888:1245 or fd00:21:445:128::7880).

Modify an alternative IP address only after changing the Packet IP interface to disabled state.

Alt Prefix

The alternative IP subnet prefix of this Interface. It should be between 0-128.

Action

The method by which calls are torn down when operational state goes to out of service:

  • dryup (default)calls remain active until the tear downtime interval expires.
  • force—calls are dropped immediately.

Dryup Timeout

The time (in minutes) to wait for all calls to complete before placing the GATEWAY service in out Of Service oper-state. Must be 0-1440 (minutes), default is 0. A value of 0 means wait indefinitely.

Bw Contingency

The percentage of maximum bandwidth that is reserved for contingency (that is, non-media). Value must be 0-100 percent.

The maximum bandwidth is the bandwidth normally available for media on the interface. (This is based on the configured bandwidth limit or the physical port bandwidth limit minus approximately 5% for signaling traffic.) The contingency factor effectively reserves a portion of this bandwidth for non-media.

Vlan Tag

A unique VLAN ID that must be assigned to each IP Interface upon which you will configure one or more SUBINTERFACEs. Must be 2-4095. When the parent IP Interface is created, this parameter is assigned the NULL (0) tag. When the IP Interface is enabled for VLAN TAG STATE, in order to provision a SUBINTERFACE, this parameter must already be set to a value in the 1-4094 or 1-254 range, or the enable command will fail. When the IP Interface is disabled for VLAN TAG STATE, this parameter is again assigned the NULL (0) tag.

The parent IP Interface will receive non-tagged or NULL (0) tagged frames. This unique VLAN ID, in the ranges cited above, must also be assigned to each IP Interface when it is configured. This value must be unique over all IP Interface.

Do not configure more than 2,048 VLAN tags on the SBC 5100 due to memory constraints.

Bandwidth

Specifies the maximum amount of bandwidth allowed in units of bytes per second. Must be 0-118750000 as follows:

0—Allow bandwidth subscriptions up to the maximum supported on the physical port.
non-zero—Allow up to the specified number of bytes per second on this IP interface. The aggregate of this number and all previously provisioned IP interfaces must not exceed the physical port bandwidth.

Enter all the required fields. You can click Show only required fields at the left hand bottom of the panel to view and enter only the required fields to create a Ip Interface.

To Delete Ip Interface

To delete any of the created Ip Interface, click the radio button next to the specific Ip Interface which you want to delete.
