The SBC supports Rx interface which pertains to QoS resource reservation for reserving bandwidth in the IP access network. The Rx reference point is used to exchange application level session information between the Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) and the P-CSCF. The Access Solution, acting as P-CSCF creates a TCP connection with the configured PCRF.

Do not configure PCRF on the Egress leg of the Trunk Group for REGISTER.

 

Info

The SBC 52x0 and SBC 7000 systems support creating IP Interface Groups containing sets of IP interfaces that are not "processor friendly" (i.e. carried on physical Ethernet ports served by separate processors). However, restrictions exist regarding the usage of such Interface Groups.

(This ability does not apply to the SBC 51x0 and SBC 5400 systems which have only two physical media ports. IP interfaces from the two physical ports may be configured within the same IP Interface Groups without restriction.)

For complete details, refer to Configuring IP Interface Groups and Interfaces.

Only one instance of Diam Node can be created.

When configuring a Diameter Node in an HA configuration, the "Secondary Origin Host" parameter must be configured with the Standby hostname

To View Diam Node

On the SBC main screen, navigate to All > Address Context > Diam Node.

The Diam Node can be checked for each Address Context or for all the Address Contexts created. Use the drop-down box to select the desired Address Context.
