    Network Element Groups

    A network element group is a list of between one and four network elements to which the MobileNext Broadband Gateway sends accounting messages.

    You can configure the following options for a network element group:

    • mandatory—Indicates that a response is mandatory from a specified network element before any services can be provided to the subscriber.
    • broadcast—Broadcasts the accounting messages to all network elements in the group.

    When the broadcast parameter is configured, the accounting requests are sent to all of the network elements in the network element group. Note that when the broadcast parameter is configured, at least one of the network elements in the group must be configured with the mandatory parameter. If the broadcast parameter is not specified, then the broadband gateway sends the accounting requests to the first network element in the group. If there is no response, then it tries the next network element in the group, and so on.
