    Interface Window Fields

    The interface window is available from Network > Elements > Interfaces. See the IP/MPLSView Java-Based Graphical User Interface Reference for more information.

    Table 1: General Tab

    Field

    Description

    Interface Name

    The interface name

    IP Address/Mask

    The IP address and mask of the interface

    Bandwidth

    The allocated bandwidth

    Layer

    Layer 3 (IP) or Layer 2 (switches)

    Node

    The node which contains the interface

    Link

    The link which uses the interface

    Oper Status

    The operational status of the interface (active, passive, planned, down, unknown)

    Admin Status

    The administration status of the interface (active passive, planned, down)

    Table 2: Advanced Tab - Layer 3

    Field

    Description

    VCI/DLCI

    The virtual circuit identifier or the data link connection identifier for ATM frame relay

    VPN

    The VPN being used on the interface

    VRF

    The virtual routing and forwarding instance name

    VRouter

    The virtual router name

    HSRP

    The hot standby routing protocol

    Encapsulation

    The interface encapsulation type

    CoS In/Out Policy

    See IP/MPLSView Class of Service Overview.

    OSPF PID

    See IP/MPLSView Routing Instances Overview.

    Multipoint

    The multipoint interface

    APS Group

    The automatic protection switching group

    APS Protected Address

    The automatic protection switching address

    APS Protected Node

    The automatic protection switching node

    Vlan ID

    The VLAN associated with this interface, if any

    Aggregated Interface

    The aggregated interface (e.g., ae0, ae1 for Juniper) associated with this interface.

    To associate an interface with a link, modify the link’s Location tab. Click on the ... button next to each Interface textbox to bring up the Select Interface window. Highlight the interface you wish to associate with that end of the link and click “OK”.


    Advanced Tab - Layer 2


    Encapsulation

    The interface encapsulation type

    Vlan ID

    The VLAN associated with this interface, if any

    Redundant Trunk Group

    Redundant trunk groups can be configured on EX-series switches so that when the active link in the group fails, a secondary link will start forwarding data traffic.

    Aggregated Interface

    The aggregated interface (e.g., ae0, ae1 for Juniper) associated with this interface.

    Port Mode

    Access (SW_ACCESS) or Trunk (SW_TRUNK)

    CoS In/Out Policy

    See IP/MPLSView Class of Service Overview.

    Tagging

    Specifies the tagging type (For Juniper, VLAN_TAGGING is for single tagging, STACKED_TAGGING is for double taggin, and FLEX_TAGGING can be configured on the physical interface to support different tagging types on different logical interfaces of the same physical interface).
