The Sonus SBC 1000 allows you to configure the Identification information, Physical Data Layer, and Networking Layer for the Ethernet ports. If you want to change the IP Address, you must configure the associated Logical Interface or use the Modify Ethernet IP task found under the Tasks tab.
Applying configuration to Ethernet ports can cause brief disruption to IP connectivity.
To access the Ethernet Ports on the Sonus SBC 1000:
- In the WebUI, click the Settings tab.
In the left navigation pane, go to Node Interfaces > Ports.

- Click the expand ( ) icon next to the port you wish to configure
Identification/Status - Field Definitions
Specifies an alternative name for the interface; typically configured by the SNMP-based Network Manager.
This parameter is unique among all the interfaces known to the SNMP Network Manager. The value cannot have whitespace characters.
Description for the port or interface. Maximum entry: 64 characters.
Physical/Data Layer - Field Definitions
Configures auto-negotiation or a specific speed for the Ethernet port. The default value should be changed only when necessary.
- Auto: When Auto is selected the port speed is automatically negotiated by the Ethernet port and reported in the Negotiated Speed field.
- 1000/100/10: The specified port speed 1000 Mbps, 100 Mbps, or 10 Mbps is reported in the Negotiated Speed field.
Specifies auto-negotiation or a specific value for the duplexity of the Ethernet port. Valid entries: Auto, Full or Half. Default value: Auto. The default value should be changed only when necessary.
Networking - Field Definitions
Specifies the type of Ethernet frames that can be received on this port.
- All: When selected, both untagged and tagged Ethernet frames are accepted on this port.
- Untagged: When selected, only untagged frames are accepted on this port.
- Tagged: When selected, only tagged frames are accepted on this port, and no default VLAN will be configured.
Default Untagged VLAN
Specifies the default VLAN to which untagged frames will be assigned when they are received on this port. Visible only when Untagged or All is selected from the Frame Type list box. For more information about VLANs, see Creating and Modifying VLANs.
Specifies the tagged VLAN(s) of which this Ethernet port is a member. Only user created VLANs can be selected. Visible only when Tagged or All is selected from the Frame Type list box. Since the ASM 1 Ethernet port is limited to Untagged mode only, the Tagged VLAN selection is not be present for this port.
Determines whether MSTP is enabled/disabled on the port(s). Valid options: Enabled (MSTP is enabled) or Disabled (default; MSTP is disabled and does not transmit/receive BPDU packets).
