    Hierarchy Level

    [edit unified-edge gateways ggsn-pgw gateway-name apn-services apns name]

    Release Information

    Statement introduced in Junos OS Mobility Release 11.2W.

    Description

    Specify the type of access point name (APN). The following APN types are supported:

    • real—Configure the APN as real if the APN name sent in the GTP Create message will be used for creating the session.
    • virtual—Configure the APN as virtual if the APN name sent in the GTP Create message will be mapped to a different (real) APN. The mapped (real) APN is then used to set up the session. A service selection profile must be configured so that the virtual APN can be mapped to a real APN.
    • virtual-pre-authenticate—Configure the APN as virtual-pre-authenticate if the APN name sent in the GTP Create message will be mapped to a different (real) APN. The mapping in this case is provided by the authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) server in the authentication (Access Accept) message. You must configure AAA authentication for this APN so that the virtual APN can be mapped to a real APN.

    Default

    If you do not specify a value, the default value is real.

    Options

    real—Specify that the APN is a real APN.

    virtual—Specify that the APN is a virtual APN.

    virtual-pre-authenticate—Specify that the APN is a virtual APN that will be mapped to a real APN using AAA authentication.
