The SBC Edge 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.

The third Ethernet port on the SBC Edge is available only if running v2 hardware and Release 6.0.0 or later. For hardware details, see Sonus SBC 1000 Hardware Specifications.


To access the Ethernet Ports:

  1. In the WebUI, click the Settings tab.
  2. In the left navigation pane, go to Node Interfaces > Ports.

Identification/Status - Field Definitions

FieldDefinition
Port AliasSpecifies 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.
DescriptionDescription for the port or interface. Maximum entry: 64 characters.

 

Physical/Data Layer - Field Definitions

FieldDescription
Configured Speed

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.

Configured Duplexity

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

FieldDescription
Frame Type

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.

Note: The ASM 1 Ethernet port is limited to Untagged mode only.

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.

Note: By default, each Ethernet port will be assigned to their own port specific system created VLAN (e.g. Ethernet 1 VLAN). When the port specific VLAN is selected, IP layer communication takes place with its default Logical Interface (e.g. Ethernet 1 IP).

Note: This option cannot be configured if the port is configured for failover redundancy.

Tagged 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.

Note: This option cannot be configured if the port is configured for failover redundancy.

 

Ethernet Port Redundancy - Field Definitions

FieldValue/RangeDescription
Redundancy

(Previously called MSTP State.)

None (0)
MSTP (1)

Failover (2)

Describes redundancy state.
Redundant PortNone
Ethernet 2
Ethernet 3*
List will reflect platform type and not offering the port currently being configured as redundant port.

*Note: Ethernet 3 is not an available option on older hardware.

 

Logical Interface Changes

When modifying the primary port for redundancy, the SBC will automatically change certain Logical Interface settings for the secondary. Refer to the note on Managing Logical Interfaces for details.
