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.
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.
The Diam Node window is displayed.
To Edit Diam Node
To edit any of the Diam Node in the list, click the radio button next to the specific Diam Node name.
The Edit Selected Diam Node 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 Diam Node
To create a new Diam Node, click New Diam Node tab on the Diam Node List panel.
The Create New Diam Node window is displayed.
The following fields are displayed:
Specifies the name of this Diameter Node. The value ranges up to 23 characters.
Specifies the description of the origin realm of this node. The value ranges up to 128 characters.
Specifies the description of the primary origin of this node. The value ranges up to 128 characters.
Specifies the description of the secondary origin of this node. The value ranges up to 128 characters.
Specifies the time out value in milli seconds. The value ranges from 500 to 6000 and the default value is 1000.
Specifies the state of the Diameter Node. The options are:
When enabled, SBC logs the DIAMETER PDU sent and received on the Rx interface to the debug log. The options are:
Specifies the name of the IP Interface group used by this node.
Specifies the IPv4 address used to create connections towards peer.
Specifies the IPv6 address used to create connections towards peer.
To Delete Diam Node
To delete any of the created Diam Node, click the radio button next to the specific Diam Node which you want to delete.
Click Delete at the end of the highlighted row. A delete confirmation message appears seeking your decision.
Click Yes to remove the specific Diam Node from the list.
